2016 ROUNDUP...

It's that time of the year again, Beauties. So many things to be thankful and grateful for. The mere fact of seeing today is itself a blessing.
Things Achieved this Year
Qualified Teacher: By the grace of God I was able to change profession this year. The thought of going back into education was daunting, because y'all know its not easy especially if you're a single mother. - But I pulled through and here we are.
Maintained Weight: Now before you roll your eyes, hear me out please. Ha! I struggle with carbs big time. I've tried so many times to ditch them, but failed. While this is the case, I really tried this year by replacing them sometimes with a healthier version, which is quite an achievement for me. My weight fluctuates, but overall I am within the healthy scale.
More Organised: One thing I've been procrastinating over the couple of years was de-cluttering. Being a hoarder, I had everything from my son's cot to baby clothes to everything you can think of. My son is seven years now and since I don't know when the next baby is coming, I don't know why I was keeping all of that. Anyways gave all of them away. Still decluttering, but the main things are out so hurray to that!
Practising Mindfulness: A lot has happened this year, but thank God I'm still sane. The inspirational words of Joyce Meyer, reading the bible, going to church, reading motivational posts and praying have made a big difference in my life. I'm a person who thinks a lot and beat myself up for the bad decisions/choices I've made in life. -But I've learnt that I can't change the past. I can only strive for a better today and future. The mind is a battlefield that will forever be challenging, because the devil doesn't seem to sleep. Thank God I'm growing in this area. 
Last, but Not the Least: I caught my hair which was something I wanted to do last year, but couldn't bring myself to do it. My mother is not a fan though. Lol! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I also wore a strapless dress this year which isn't me. Lol!! I checked bridesmaid off my bucket list this year. Hurray...
Fashion-wise, above are some of my favourites this year.

Have you shared your roundups? Please comment and leave a link of your blog.
Thank you all beauties for making 2016 a fabulous blogging year. Y'all much appreciated and cheers to the new year.
Wishing us happiness, good health and more blessing.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

COLLABOS: INTRODUCING IRISIE...

The western's economy might be slowing down, but China doesn't seem to budge. Each day there's something popping up and in our blogging world, a clothing brand. We can't really be mad, because these brands give us not only trendy, quirky and different ensemble, but also very affordable. While some of them come cheap in appearance we can't also deny the fact that some of them are of good quality. One of these brands is Irisie. The brand contacted me about a collaboration and being a person who tries before judging, I agreed and I was sent all of the things you're seeing here. Reviews will be following soon, but for the meantime, its thumbs up from me. I can't speak for all the pieces the brand sells, but the pieces I received are of good quality.
So who is Irisie?
Their Ambition
We’re not just hunting for stylish stuff and piling them up on our website. Instead we listen closely to what girls truly expect from a dress, put down amazing ideas on style from every friend we talk to and embrace these inspirations while we’re designing our dresses, skirts (actually it’s any stuff you can find on irisie). That’s correct, we design our own stuff and get them displayed, shared, loved and put on and you’ll find irisie can be your one-stop online fashion destination and resolution.
Shipping & Delivery & Return
The brand offers standard shipping worldwide, but one is entitled to free standard shipping when you spend over $39 and this is also worldwide. If this is not a major jackpot then I don't know!
If you're not happy with something you bought, you contact them about it and it can be returned within 30 days upon receiving it.
Sizing
If you've shopped from any Chinese brand before, you'll know that their sizing is a bit off. - So please do measure yourself before placing an order.



Currently the brand says, shoppers will get 20% off their first order and 30% off faux coats. Don't take my words for it, please do check em out and let me know what you think or see.
Thank God its Friday!

FRIDAY LUVIN: TARAJI P. HENSON...

Thank God its Friday, Beauties!
Hope you've all had a good week. Mine has been stressful, but its all part of life. Ha!

For 'Friday Luvin' today, queen of Empire, Taraji P. Henson is stealing the spotlight. The 44th annual American Music Awards was held on the 20th Nov. and miss Henson came to slay. I love the effortless approach, but also oh-so sexy with the unbuttoned shirt, bold lips and the strappy heels. 

What do you think, guys?
Have a lovely weekend, Beauties.

FASHION INSPIRATION: FESTIVE SEASON...

FESTIVE SEASON

The festive season is unto us, guys. How exciting!
Hello Beauties,
How was your weekend?
With all the craziness and surprises going on in the world, we definitely need some loving and unity. - And what a great occasion to do this than thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes, love and unity has to be shown everyday, but occasions are the best times to take it up a notch by getting in touch with that family member/friend you haven't spoken to because of a silly misunderstanding. Last, but certainly not the least, also to be a blessing unto someone out there. This could be through volunteering at a charity, making a small donation, buying a coffee for the homeless person sitting by the roadside, etc. etc. The possibilities are endless!

Come with the festive seasons are endless parties and events. You definitely want to show up slaying in a beautiful and simple stylish number. Seen above are some dresses I thought will be befitting that occasion. - From fall IT trends like velvet, ruffles to bell sleeves, you'll surely make an entrance. Christmas and red are like two titties in a push-up bra (excuse my French...lol!). One can never go wrong, right?

What are your thoughts? Any favs from the collage?
Do share!

OOTD: SHADES OF YELLOW AND COLOUR...

How y'all doing beauties?
I've missed y'all very much. I took a week off to put some things in order my life. I love blogging but, as a working single mother, life can be hectic and overwhelming which kinda sucks. Amidst all the ups and downs though, I thank God for the gift of life.
This post has been long overdue. I mean summer overdue, because I wore this outfit to a summer wedding. Can we blame it on life again? Ha! Anyways as its better late than never, here we are.
Wanting to tone down on the vavavom'ness (lol!) of this skater dress, I opted for a blazer which worked very well. The clutch added a bit of character to the whole ensemble.
The photos don't really do justice to this outfit the way I wish. Click on a photo to zoom it, hopefully its a bit okay.
Normally I share ootds on my blog before any of my social media platforms but, unfortunately these went live on Instagram before here. Is it still okay? I don't want to break any blogging codes. Lol!
Having said that, if we don't follow each other on INSTAGRAM, do hit the follow button. I always follow back especially if you're a blogger, because I know we're on the same mission. If I find your page inspiring, relate to your posts or you post decent things, I'll follow. Its about time we support one another and stop worrying too much about the numbers. 
Another outfit I wore is this red/black ruchen dress from Asda. I've had this dress for over two years but, ehhh...when you hoard things that's what happens. 
Off to catch up on the posts I missed, so please bare with me.
Have a blessed week ahead. 
Which is your favourite outfit?

CELEB WORLD: MO'NIQUE FOR SHEEN MAGAZINE...

To celebrate their 10-years anniversary, the magazine has chosen none other than Oscar winning actress, Mo'Nique, to grace the cover of their November/December issue.
From the sleek hairstyle to the natural makeup to the sequinned slit dress, Mo'Nique looks fabulous. - And the curves are still intact! Love this!
Its good to see her back all happy and healthy. She is such a talented lady.

What this tells me is that, sometimes you need to take a break to work on yourself. Life can be overwhelming and in order not to breakdown, that is needed.

CYBER MONDAY AND BLACK FRIDAY WITH STYLEWE...

In few weeks the whole "Cyber Monday" and "Black Friday" madness will be here. Are you ready to score some goodies? In the UK, Black Friday will fall on the 25th November which is a day after thanksgiving in America.
I'm not the one to waste my beauty sleep to queue early in the morning and fight over clothes in some store. Mine is being comfortable on my sofa and shopping online. One of the best ways to score good deals is signing up for email newsletters of my favourite brands. Doing so I get messages of deals in advance.
Stylewe has been one of my favourite brands ever since I was introduced to it. The brand features pieces from independent designers from around the world so there's tremendous styles to pick from. I love that they're giving designers a platform to showcase their work and the fact that there's versatility. If you're not familiar with them, please do get familiarize. They've affordable deals on great dresses on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Don't take my words for it, take a look at these dresses I've put together. Are they not stylish and chic?
You can also read some reviews about them here.
What kind of a shopper are you?

Having said all of that, I hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend with families and friends.
I wish you a blessed week ahead.
Stay true to yourselves and don't look down on yourselves even if things don't go the way you want em.

OOTD: SIMPLICITY IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH A POP...

The days have been running like Usain Bolt (lol...joke of the day!) but, I wish weekends could slow down a bit. I feel like it just goes by in a blink of an eye. Do you feel the same or am I exaggerating? Ha!
Starting this week in a minimalistic black and white outfit with a pop of ankara and burgundy. This face has been m.i.a on the blog for a while but, gradually getting it together, so thanks for all your comments.
Last but, not the least, can we remember Haiti in prayers, please. Reportedly hundreds of people have been killed and 30.000 homes have been destroyed by hurricane Matthew. If you know of the right charity to donate, please do comment because it has been announced that not all these charities use the money people donate for the right purposes.
Thank you!

Have a blessed week, beauties!
Keep elevating yourselves.

NEWCHIC AUTUMN WISHLIST...

Happy new new week and month, Beauties!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend filled with love. Mine has been alright, except some flu which won't let me be. This is why I'm not an autumn/winter person. Ha! Aside that everything is well by the grace of God. 
Its that time of the season again where you play the swapping game in your closet. You get rid of some old pieces and replace with newbies or just add to them. After a great impression with their clothes, I had to check back in to see what Newchic has got in store this season. Showing are some ensemble that tickled my fancy. 
The love for the printed dresses above is indescribable. Any kind of print is eye-catching and bound to make a bold statement at anywhere you go. While prints are great for every season, I believe autumn and winter are the perfect season to wear them. With the gloomy weather, the one thing aside tea/cuddles you need is beautiful bold fashion statement pieces.
 Sweatshirts and knee high boots are perfect autumn/winter staple. Is there anything classier than black and white pattern? Please do let me know.




What have you purchased recently or any wishlist?
Wishing you a blessed week. May October be a month full of God's favours and blessing for us.

LIFESTYLE: HELLO AUTUMN...


It seems like the ever anticipated autumn is officially here in the UK. Ever anticipated because the buzz about it from autumn lovers has been nothing but, loud. Anyways the autumnal weather of rain, cold breeze and early darkness has started engulfing us with their presence. I thought it was going to be a slow start but, alas, I thought wrong. While I love sweaters, chic statement coats and all that autumn/winter ensemble, I'm a summer girl at heart.
For a little autumn comfort, 
  • I can't wait to break out some of my favourites sweaters, blazers and layer the hell outta them!
  • Lately I find myself dozing off in the afternoons due to the fact that sleep has somehow hidden itself from me during the night. Could that be insomnia? Due to this the plan is to rest whenever spare time presents itself. Ha! Any recommendations or help on battling insomnia?
  • Still practising mindfulness and working on my relationship with God. It is not easy but, I can tell you that I feel lighter and free ever since I started doing this. A weight has been lifted off my shoulder. It is the feeling of talking to a God that doesn't discriminate but, love us unconditionally. He chooses the foolish and weak things of the world to shame the strong/wise.
*Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17*

  • I'm also working on living healthy where ever possible. Every little step counts. I'm not hard on myself anymore, just going with the flow.

The collage is a collection of how my autumn/winter is going to look like really. All images are pinned from pinterest where there's inspiration from every angle.
Hope the week has been good to you. Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
How's your autumn looking like?
