I took to Wikipedia for a clearer phrasing for what sustainable fashion is, and what it means for the environment. Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility. I believe it’s important that we continue to have conversations around sustainable methods of production in all industries and impose laws to help enforce better practices. To see a brand as big as H&M begin to join the movement is very impressive, especially considering their standing in influence in the industry of fashion. H&M Conscious Exclusive 2018 brings together powerful femininity and sustainable fashion innovation with recycled silver and ECONYL®. They’ve combined the latest in sustainable fabric innovation with designs inspired by the creative home of the…

If there’s one thing I love to accessorize with it’s a great pair of sunnies. They’re basically the statement maker to any look you’re trying to achieve. Plus, we survive some days of the week with Coffee and sunglasses right?! My selection is very often the blacks and other neutral tones. However, with this outfit in mind, I decided to throw on a pair of Gucci shades. These babies have the right amount of tint on the lenses, enough for me to still remain in my safe zone as well as remain “accessible” to those I’m engaging with. As you can tell, this is definitely a lunch with the girls kind of outfit – the perfect day time look. I purchased the top from The Fix, under their newly launched New Lust Haves campaign. Everything is quite “Eastern dreamy” from this range. With pieces ranging from luxe kimonos, embroidery denim,…

So last night TRESemmé hosted the Inspired By New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Hair Collection. Unfortunately I was unable to make it due to work commitments, but thank goodness for social media and press releases right?!The lovely event was hosted by Lalla Hirayama, a well known presenter in the South African entertainment space. Quite an unassuming selection, but it makes perfect sense! The event showcased the latest hair trends straight off the NYFW runway. The hair styles were created by Ceecee Mabaso, a local stylist that TRESemmé partnered with and sent to work backstage at NYFW, alongside global TRESemmé hairstylist and stylist to the stars, Justine Marjan.  I know CeeCee Mabaso personally and am so thrilled she got this opportunity of a lifetime. She literally lives and breathes HAIR. Her love and passion for hair is unquestionable. CeeCee currently owns and runs her salon in Durban which is called Hair Trends.…

Full of narratives memories and stories, ERDEM x H&M is a deeply personal collection that looks back to the designer’s youth, and to the codes that have defined his work over the past decade. It’s about the romantic dresses he saw in English films, his father’s coat that his mother draped over her shoulders, or the cool style of 90s TV and music videos. To create ERDEM x H&M, he imagined the dream English countryside getaway, mixing gowns with tailoring, functionality with drama, as different generations and backgrounds interpret the wardrobe with each individuals own style. Each piece is designed exclusively for H&M, and will be available in around 220 stores worldwide, as well as on hm.com, from November 2. KEY THEMES Exquisite statement pieces Erdem’s fans cherish his designs forever, and ERDEM x H&M is overflowing with special pieces that will become like heirlooms. A sleeveless ball gown of…

I’ve never been brave enough to wrap myself up head to toe in such a daring color! However, for the color series, Junia Tsekiso (creative director for this shoot) had me well out of my comfort zone.Of all the looks we played around with, this one in particular is definitely my top favorite! I loved the fact that we were playing around with denim, and not just any basic denim denim. The sleeves of the jacket add much character to the overall look which makes this outfit particularly a great pick when you want to go for an effortless look. I wore both the top and pants for this combo, but if it’s all too overwhelming for you, you can wear the pieces separately. Look, I’m saying why not go on and be BOLD for a change. Summer is knocking at the door and red is definitely top of the list…

As promised in my last blog post, I’ve written up on the hand and nail care products I’ve had the pleasure of trying out by LCN. I wasn’t interested in any products which would complicate my life and demand a lot of my time so these products were quite perfect to experiment with. Below I will take you through what I’ve learnt about each product as well as how effective it was for my hand and nail care routine I have established. THE FUTURE OF BEAUTY The LCN line has expanded to include natural nail, hand, foot, make-up, spa, micro blading and eyelash products.  Every LCN beauty product remains the result of careful research, educated industry professionals, and a flawless eye for the future of beauty and fashion.  LCN continues to break new ground in the beauty industry, while still standing the test of time.

For the longest time, taking care of my hands hasn’t been at the top of the list of my priorities. I don’t seem to enjoy how any moisturizer, except for Vaseline, feels on my hands. However, of late I’ve been making a conscious effort to moisturize and care for my hands as I do for my face and feet. I mean, who wants crusty hands and feet anyway? Aside from looking crusty, the long term benefits of taking care of your hands by using a hand cream are definitely worth it. Our hands are our everything. Not an hour of the day goes by without us having to use our hands, and so this important tool deserves our attention. Our hands go through the absolute most, touching and handling all sorts of surfaces, shaking hands and getting in contact with harsh chemicals which have a harmful effect on our skin.…

Whether you’re headed off to the the movies or stepping out for Friday night festivities with the ladies, a humble white T and a pair of blue jeans are the perfect go to for a simple look. Both items are not only versatile, but they have a cool and easy going feel to them. However, I have decided switched up the concept of a humble white T and jeans for a little bit of an edgy look which also adheres to current trends and is perfect for any season! “I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity.” – Yves Saint Lauren Let’s take a moment and explore the variety of denims currently making waves in the market. For one, ripped/distressed jeans are definitely a thing! Another personal favorite…

Having recently switched up the location to Johannesburg, I’ve had to adjust to the cold weather this side of life. The very first thing I had to come to terms with was that I need to start getting used to wearing socks and stop being childish and waking up with no socks on. Needless to say, I’m yet to master that art! Anyway, I’ve also had to let go of a lot of my pretty dresses and get to wearing more jeans and track pants. I recently came across these track pants from The Fix and absolutely loved them. Obviously they remind me of the Adidas three stripe track pants I’ve been postponing getting for myself. I mean, I actually really don’t have any clothes to “chill-out” in while still looking cute. While many may not know, there’s actually a difference between joggers and track pants. Track pants ( Tracksuit…

So once upon a time, I took a look into baes wardrobe and found myself putting together a couple of looks for… ME! From shirts to bomber jackets, I absolutely love menswear and will definitely be sharing more of such looks. It’s something about the appeal it has and how comfortable and cosy it makes me feel. I’m sure many of you can admit socks and hoodies make top 5 of the list of MUST JACK’s in your mans clothes, especially this winter. This look works perfectly for those lazy days where you want an effortless look which still looks pretty dope. I went super army with this one in my sock boots from Dolce Vita and a unique T-Shirt purchased during a visit to the Johannesburg Zoo. Wild much? “Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style. Alternatively, you can pair…
