INDIGO AFFAIR

Today's outfit is something very different from what I'm used to, but absolutely loving it. 95% of my wardrobe is sweatpants and dusty old baggy t-shirts. Since my birthday in May, I promised my self that I should start wearing more grownup clothes because, even though I don't fully realise it, I am an adult. I saw this deep blue indigo cute dress at Primark and couldn't resist. As soon as I tried it, I felt so comfortable and regal that I didn't want to take it out. I paired it with floral mules that were screaming my name. What do you think about my outfit? 
L'outfit di oggi è diverso da quello che indosso solitamente ma qualche volta è bene cambiare. Il 95% del mio guardaroba consiste in pantaloni da ginnastica e vecchie maglie sformate di dubbia provenienza. Da quando ho compiuto gli anni a Maggio, mi sono ripromessa di dover iniziare a comprare più abiti eleganti e sofisticati perchè, che io me ne sia res…

A POP OF COLOUR

Principles by Ben de Lisi Top | Primark Jeans | PrimarkHeels
I just received really good news regarding a job that I've applied for and I feel that this look represent perfectly how happy I'm feeling at the moment! Last week I was having a look around in Debenhams in Oxford Street, a paradise for us fashionistas, and I got blinded by the colour of this lovely top. It attracted me immediately and, after seeing the cut of it, I was definitely in love with it. Since I am quite chesty, I do need to have a neckline to balance my silhouette and avoid making me look bigger than I actually am. Turtlenecks, for example, are my nemesis and I try to avoid them in my wardrobe.  This top is a Principles by Ben de Lisi piece. The whole clothing line is very curvy friendly, uses primary colours on classic design. I could easily find an outfit for an office environment and feel professional without having to rely on grey or black.
What do you think about my look? Would you have paired the top dif…

PASTEL BABY BLUE

New Look Top | Primark High Waist Skirt | Primark Heels
Baby blue is the colour that took over my heart and this season. The cut of my skirt is perfect for curvy girls who want a defined waist and still want to be comfortable during high temperatures. I've paired this flowy, light textured skirt with a playful off the shoulder striped top, a new staple in my wardrobe. Since I wanted the colour baby blue to pop, I've decided to choose a neutral light brown sandals.

HAIR REVIEW || H'SUAN WEN HUA

Image
A lot of you ask me on a daily basis my opinion on specific natural hair products so I thought I would start making products reviews again. For some reasons I got very disorganised busy lately so I wasn't dishing out as many review articles as per usual. But I will start again since I also bought few new products during the Afro Hair & Beauty Live show (check out my post HERE). Today I will talk a little bit about the hair mask H'Suan Wen Hua from Lush. This mask is full of protein-rich, nourishing ingredients to revive your hair and improve its condition. There are few natural ingredients perfect for improve the health of natural hair such as eggs, bananas, avocados and bay leaf infusion. It was suggested on the box to massage a thick layer of H'Suan Wen Huatreatment on completely dry hair and leave for 20 minutes before shampooing and conditioning.  I then applied the TREsemme NATURALS CONDITIONER (link of the review here), finger detangled my hair, rinse it out, repeat…

The days has finally arrived. It's always a pleasure to come back at the Afro Hair & Beauty Live Show. This is my second year in a row participating to this amazing gathering of Afrocentric beauty supplies, products and clothes designers. Most of the products displayed are discounted so it's always a great chance to have a bigger selection, stock up and save some coins. For this reason, I had the possibility to purchase products from Creme of NatureHair Chemist LimitedAs I AmTangle Teezer and Gro Healthy. Take a moment to have a look at the pictures and pretend for a second that you were there with me.
