Hey guys! If you follow me on my Instagram, you’ll know just how much I’ve been embracing my bold side and loving red pieces in particular. These images are the second installment of the shoot styled by Zuki. What I wore: Nomi Velvet Pants and a red Carla Camisole from Diane-Paris ; Rio heels by Dolce Vita Inspired by classic lingerie, Carla camisole is cut from silk and cotton blend in a flattering V-neck silhouette. The languid drape works particularly well half-tucked into jeans or tailored pants. This look involved quite a bit of playing around with texture. From the faux fur, silk top, velvet pants, all the way down to the feathery heels. I genuinely enjoyed playing around with this look – I even changed my hair from sleek to big curls in between it all. By the time the images arrived, I actually didn’t know which hair I…

Introduced in 2015, the NIVEA Perfect & Radiant was developed specifically for women with dark skin ( African Women ). The NIVEA Perfect & Radiant range offers a comprehensive solution for uneven toned skin, with its full range of cleansing and care products for all skin types. The No1 skin problem amongst women in SA is having dull and uneven ( dark marks ) skin tone. I’ve had my fair share of such  an experience especially because I used to spend a lot of time on the sporting field – in the scorching sun!

Fast forward to this present moment, I’m now fully aware  of the benefits of cleansing my skin, as well as the fact that I can actually have a good skin routine in place at an affordable price -…

The very first time I was introduced to the name Diane Paris was through a Top Billing insert. It was in that very moment that I knew I would one day strut in their pieces. As time went by, I started paying even more attention to the brand which is worn by the likes of Kefilwe Mabote and model Rosette Ncwane. Diane is a ready to wear women’s brand rooted in Parisian femininity that is effortlessly chic and timeless Perfectly crafted for the petite frame, the Diane Paris clothing brand was launched in the french capital – where her fabrics are still sourced for further manufature in Poland. When I stepped into their showroom in Dunkeld, I felt warmth, comfort and effortless-chic! I then went on to select and try on some pieces that had caught my eye. For the very first time in a LONG time, I began to…

This look was literally never going to make it up on the blog. However, while I was thinking of an Instagram caption for one of these images, I thought of the caption “A hint of Spring in Autumn” and a series of thoughts instantly came to mind.  Perhaps this has got a lot to do with the fact that I’m currently reading a book titled “Talent is never enough” by John C. Maxwell. Although I’m only halfway through the book, I’ve already gained a wealth of knowledge. A lot of my beliefs have been re-affirmed, my mindset has been transformed, I’ve learnt much about myself. As a result, I now have such a different approach to life and the many unique situations I experience each day. Let’s not stray too far from what got us to this point – the outfit. I’m wearing a simple  pair of black skinny jeans,…
