Hippy & Chic with a Natural Finish

Yesterday I went to London to spend the day with my family. At first, I was planning to wear one of my very regular outfits which I like because it completely hides my body figure. Due to health and personal issues, I have gained a lot of weight during the last year and I’m apprehensive of being around my family while looking like this. However, while getting ready on the morning, I spotted a crop top and a pair of culotte pants I had recently bought. I looked outside, and it was sunny. Perfect day to wear that clothing combination. So, why not?

Elegant & Bohemian for a Business Seminar

Last Wednesday I attended a professional business seminar in Shenzhen (China), where I have been working for nearly a month. At first, I didn’t want to dress up, but after being told I had to make a good impression to network with other professionals after the panel discussion, I decided to look a bit smarter than usual. Though it wasn’t in my plans (I hadn’t felt very good about my looks, particularly body, for various weeks), I ended up doing a small photoshoot before the event started. I really liked the results despite my current low self-esteem wave, so here is a fashion & beauty post:

Glowing & Grunge with Alternative Vibes

Yesterday I went to visit my mum and siblings in London. I always dress up to go to the big metropolitan, so this time it couldn’t be any different! Furthermore, natural hair season has just began for me and the weather was nice. So of course, I had to make a small photoshoot for my look. Hope you enjoy it!

Vintage, Old Fashioned, With An “Antique” Touch

A month ago my cousin’s first communion took place and I really like how I looked for the event, so this post is just a group of pictures of my make-up, my hair and my dress for the day (allow me to be vain now and then, sorry!). Here they go:

Three selfies showing my make up. I was wearing a very small amount of liquid foundation from the brand “Sleek”, black eye mascara from the brand “Benefit Cosmetics” and a pink lipstick from the brand MAC, known as “Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick” (this is the most make up I have ever worn and I was very excited because I had never used lipstick before, due to fear of looking like a clown. Surprisingly, it went well and I adored how I looked!)

Four pictures of my whole look. I was wearing a cream colour lace dress with cream colour ballerinas, both items bought in TK Maxx. My hair was just my natural afro put upright with a few pins. And I wore a traditional jewelry set made of pearls & metal.

To end the post, I have these two pictures: just me, nature and flowers aesthetics!

Overall, my look was quite vintage, old fashioned, with an “antique” touch. And I loved it.

Showing off a bit,
