What i Wore;

I decided to have a little bit of fun with my outfit,so i mixed prints,i did a Black & White Polka Dot Crop Top & a Square Print Pencil Skirt & finally low heeled pointees.....

Getting Rid Of Chapped Lips


Flaky lips! I probably get this too much  that i try avoid lipstick as much as possible.... :) but i sort of got some kind of solution for such episodes..........Enough of peeling lips.What you need is pretty much basic



*1 tbsp Olive Oil(Got the "ideal" brand  at Ebrahims ) alternatively i use the pietro's extra virgin one any is okay.
*One teaspoon of Sugar










Mixed the two (olive oil and sugar),rub it on chapped lips severally for a few minutes,then rinse it with warm water and you good to go & good to apply your lipstick.

You definitely feel the difference

"Those Closet Dayz"


Ever had those closet days where you realize you have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? well that's definitely me this dayz....been feeling very uninspired  and too bored to come up with outfits lately & that explains the not blogging till  when i feel like.....not to despair though ,


went ahead and did a lil bit of impulse buying on the weekend(i shop a lot when i'm kinda idle) just to spice up my closet,i feel like i've worn everything but i'm sure someone else would say something different haha..

this has caused me alot of time since i find myself taking ages to dress up,am thinking of being more organised when it comes to dressing up,and maybe come up with an outfit like a night before the next day -Bad habit


Then i remembered i have a blog....Thought of doing  something small to keep the blog going,came up with some of my old favourite outfit pics  i've done before








I will be back soon

Weavy List

Are You weavy? lol



I know several stories have been told about weaves and blabla,how men are against them ,how unatural and 'plastic' and dirty they look & many more tales but heeey! i have never been against them (well except that i hate the "shinny" ones i prefer an almost natural look)and that hasn't stopped me from weaving my hair.....after-all  people will always talk.


I know some that have never tried weaving because they have no clue on which weaves to try  on or start with...well here is a list and my own views of weaves i've tried on or i know of that i consider good  that might give you a heads start or an idea on what to put next

i always make sure i remember each name of weaves i put in my hair.....


Weave 1-Fashion Idol Shake Curl-well defined & strong curls that last for ages when well maintained

Weave 2-Diva(angels)-The weave was very soft ,i must admit at first i thought i'd ruin the curls when i combed it but after, i loved the fluffy,smaller curls i was able to achieve



Weave 3- Victoria -Also a common one,loved it! i remember a lady stopping me to ask me about it,weaved half leaving hair all round which made it possible for me to achieve several looks as you can see.





Weave 4- Xpression's Indian curl(Loved it much ,looked so natural,washable and i remember i even set it again in the dryer)




Weave 5- Nature's Indian Wave which i'm currently rocking.Loved the texture at first very comby till i washed it thinking it would still retained it's texture like no.4 LOL...i noticed it changed the texture and became kinda hard to comb at the edges.Weave 5 is also the one below when held back looks lovely yeah??

I Love Indian Weaves


Weave 6-(Mamu)Darling's Celebrity Collection-Quite simple,bobish ,looks very natural and it comes in quantity,awesome texture and pocket friendly considering it's texture and quality if you want something simple go for it.

Weave 7-  Fashion Idol's Tina...which is kinda bobish,i would recommend it  for starters for a simple look.loved the colour which had a little bit of gold strands

Weave 8-is among the most common weaves i know It's a flat Iron a 10 in inch which can be found in most cosmetics shops in Cbd(best lady,super cosmetics,ebrahims,........just to name but a few,it comes with different lengths too.




Have you tried any weave that you would recommend?
