Beauty:Best Face Forward

Wednesday, September 24, 2014


Many women ask, "Why wear make up?" And to them I say, "Why not?"Cosmetics are tools,used to help you put your best face forward,whether you simply slick on a lip gloss,brush your eyebrows and walk out of the door.The goal is to enhance your public face.
A finished face says a lot about you.That you've taken some time.That you care about yourself.That you have self confidence.That you are not ashamed to look pretty or glamorous or fresh or even adorable.
Make up does not require hours to apply.The idea is to enhance not mask,so a light touch with the correct products can make even the most natural face look finished and pretty.
 To achieve this look this is what I did & used :
  • I applied moisturizer on my face
  • Used black opal liquid foundation(Beautiful Bronze)to even out my skin
  • On my eye lashes I applied two coats of mascara(M.A.C Mascara)
  • Used 3 different shades of lipstick(sleek's Pearl Wine & Grape lipstick & M.A.C's Retro Matte Ruby woo)





Simple does it,huh??You can also check out my previous post on my make up routine here.Enjoy the rest your day beautiful people.

Kenya Fashion Bloggers Challenge:Print Mix up

Monday, September 22, 2014

Hello everyone!

Today's outfit post will have a little twist to it and am so excited about it!for the first time ever your favourite Kenyan fashion bloggers teamed up and we came up with our first challenge print on print.The idea was basically for each one of us to style an outfit with the main theme being  print on print.
Mixing up prints can be quite challenge but how we all mixed up our outfits will give you a rough idea on how to go about it next time you want to pull a print on print look.First off I will start with myself,for this challenge I went for the corporate look where I wore an animal print top and an Aztec bodycon skirt.Just perfect for the office and attending meetings.Check out how my fellow fashion bloggers styled theirs!

Outfit Post :African Print Crop Top & pencil skirt

Monday, September 15, 2014

Happy Monday!Remember a while back I made a decision to transition from relaxed to natural hair?I was not for the idea of going through the big chop and if someone suggested it I would think they are insane as I was so convinced short hair wouldn't look good on me.

So last month after I undid the box braids,I felt  it was time to try out a new look and  cutting my hair was not one of them,I was thinking of getting a hair colour maybe maroon or red I even went ahead and asked Tony Airo my hairdresser for advise and he was like maroon hair colour would look good on me,I went ahead and booked an appointment and come that day he was really surprised when I told him to cut my hair.I just felt I needed a new look and am so loving it,the hair cut was done just as I wanted it.Thank you Tony!
