Power Posing

So, I never thought I’d ever use a quote by Lil Wayne don’t get me wrong I do like his music but that mostly involves me going like ‘wait, what? you wanna put what where?’ Listening to hip-hop as a woman is such a treat no?
confidence is the stain they can’t wipe off – Lil Wayne Continue reading “Power Posing”


Lessons Learned Chasing Life in My 20s


Photography by – Halisee

Life is tough but one thing is sure putting yourself down won’t make it any easier. Being in your 20s is one weird, wild emotional roller coaster. Sure, we all have our bad days everything goes wrong, nothing seems to go your way and you are just not feeling good enough but it stings just a little more when you are trying to get your life together. Everything feels like it’s one mistake away from falling apart. I have been told countless times how life is easier when you are in your 20s like life is one big party because you have less responsibilities. But when you have dreams, goals, ambitions and you are jobless wilting at the weight of your frustrations and expectations is not only possible but an inevitability! It’s been one year since I completed campus and everything is constantly changing some great, some not so good and others downright ugly! Personally, I found it jarring how unprepared I was for the “real world”. Clearly there is SO much that we experience after graduation that I would have been so grateful to learn before that day came. Here are some of the most important things I’ve learned so far some of which I wish someone told me and not just about getting married or having kids which was covered extensively in my sociology lectures! Thank you! Continue reading “Lessons Learned Chasing Life in My 20s”

The Girl in the Pink!

Howdy folks,

As I write this article it’s raining heavily I don’t think this outfit is perfect for this kind of weather but then again it’s a blazer dress so I guess it wouldn’t be so far off right? Its fuchsia embellished with cute gold buttons making it a statement piece so just throw on a trench coat and it will take you from work to formal event and coffee after work. Don’t let the rain dull your sparkle! Continue reading “The Girl in the Pink!”

Double Trouble!

Ola! Mon’Amie,

I believe that when it comes wardrobe essentials the classic white button-down shirt automatically earns a spot at the top of the list. It’s the real deal: the true wear anywhere staple. Tuck it in or let it loose; tie it in knots or fashion an expert cuff – you can’t go wrong with this year-round essential. Trends come and go but the versatility of the white button-down is perpetual. Continue reading “Double Trouble!”

7 Things Every Woman Should know


April was supposed to be different. There are goals I was hoping to have achieved by the beginning of April and that has made the past few days gloom and unbearable and not just because of the rain. I know some goals require a bit more time and patience but I still beat myself up and felt like a complete failure.one thing I have come to learn about myself is that I love being in control and control is the one thing I don’t have; haven’t had for a while now. Remembering that I need to let go and let God (after bawling my eyes out underneath a blanket for three hours and twenty two minutes) was like a silken scarf wrapping around me and receiving an email from a friend on ‘7 things every woman should know’ gave me a much needed jolt of confidence to get up, dress up and show up. I hope it helps you in one way or the other. Continue reading “7 Things Every Woman Should know”

Viva la LBD!


Hey Loves

Karl Lagerfeld famously said:’ one is never overdressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.” And I couldn’t agree more it’s pretty hard to go wrong in this classic piece! One of the things I love about the lbd is its simplicity and sophistication. What’s more I can’t think of one occasion in which the black dress won’t have you covered. It’s one of those pieces that I believe every woman should have in her arsenal! Continue reading “Viva la LBD!”

Greet you all,

Lemme start by saying that I now understand why leather pants are a winter staple! The heavy and uncomfortable material can make a heat rash look like a welcome luxury. The idea of wearing leather on a hot day sounds about as delightful as sporting an open-back dress in the dead of winter. Leather is sexy and it’s great for going in and out of air conditioned buildings but you can only tolerate so much heat. This is a look perfect for the cold season when the sun goes down and comes back up months later. Continue reading “L e a t h e r|G r e y”
