HOLIDAY GLAM | Jacquard Fitted & Flared dress + Faux Fur Stole

 

The holiday season is ahead of us and I am personally getting in that holiday mood. It is an exciting time of the year I look forward to. A time when there is so much love in the air. A time when we all get together to give, love, share, merry and rejoice. I love the holidays.

The holidays of course is incomplete without some glamour. It was that urge to look and feel glamorous that brought about this look.

TIE STYLE SCARF & SHIMMERY BLACK DRESS

The tie style scarf is been on trend for some time now. Even though I am not a trend follower or buyer, If there is anything that falls into the category of “trend” to me like the tie style scarf I have on this post, I go for it. I go for it because it is something that is a trend but timeless. TImeless in the sense that when the item is no more trending, it can still be worn without it feeling dated.

This tie style scarf can be worn in numerous ways and it would be my pleasure to share different ways of wearing it with you in the future. If you are new to the blog, I am all about maximising my wardrobe/closet.

Talking about styling the tie style scarf in different ways, did you read my post on the art of maximising? If you missed it, check here

FITTED BURGUNDY PANTS & STRIPED BAGGY BLOUSE

I am always drawn to stripes when they come in black and white. Why? It is because black and white to me is like ice cream. No matter what the occasion is, ice cream is always a good idea. So also is black and white, no matter what the occasion is, both colours just work. It is even more fun when the black and white in question is stripes because stripes actually look dressier than they really are.

I strongly believe that I am not the only one who feels black and white is like ice cream. What do you feel or how do you feel about black and white?

THE ART OF MAXIMISING YOUR CLOSET

Art-of-maximising-your-closet

A lot of us have so many clothes but most times we do not have what to wear especially when we are going out. We just can’t seem to find what works and we end up buying more clothes only to find out we still don’t have anything to wear. Ironic right?

Styling your clothes could be overwhelming if you can’t find things. Another thing that could cause you stress is if you have too much clothes but can’t figure how to store them.

Have you ever been in a situation where by your wardrobe is full but just can’t seem to put things together? Or are you tired of buying over and over again only to arrive at the same destination of not having anything to wear.

AUTUMN COLOURS

When I think of Autumn colours, it reminds me of home. I live very close to a farmland with loads of massive trees. The moment the leave colours start changing then we know it is Autumn/Fall. Even though it could be challenging to clean when the leaves starts falling off and blowing towards home, I love the change in the colour of the leaves.

Today’s look was inspired by the trees near home. From leave green, all of a sudden the leaves starts changing to orange and yellow with some dash of red. Beautiful I will say !

HIGH NECK BLOUSE & RUGGED BOOTS

The last time I shared some TIPS on how to frame/accentuate the face, I suggested that wearing high neck blouses (turtle neck) is one of the best ways to do that. You can learn other ways here.

Not only does the high neck blouse helps to frame the face, it is one of the easiest ways to keep warm when the weather gets colder. Honestly, it is my uniform in the colder months. Any one who knows me would know that about me. Throw on some gloves and jacket and cold will be far away from you.

 

BODY-CON HOUNDSTOOTH DRESS

I count it all joy when I find pieces that could be worn in more than one season. This dress is an example of what I mean. It is perfect for now (fall) and can also be worn when the weather gets colder (Winter).

It is also one of the patterns I love ; houndstooth. I am in that phase now where houndstooth appeals to me. I also paired it with grid here and shred TIPS on how to pair print on print.

HOW TO DEAL WITH BODY INSECURITIES

Recently, I listened to J Lo (Jennifer Lopez ) in an interview on good morning Britain where she talked about her insecurities of been judged about her voice for so many years and how she was able to overcome the insecurities.

Who would have thought J Lo feels in secured about anything. A “sexy Latina” who has made the American dream ! Talk about a super star judge on American Idol and so many pointers on her CV.

Listening to that made me wonder if there is anyone who doesn’t have insecurity issues about their body?

The truth is there will always be a part of your body you may not necessarily like. Does that now mean you should chop them off or go under the knife to correct them. Going under the knife is a topic for another day.

5 WAYS TO GET CLEANER & CLEARER SKIN

Getting cleaner and clearer skin is way beyond buying the latest and the most expensive beauty products in the market but doing what works.

While a lot of people will immediately think of the 3 step ritual of washing, moisture restoration or toning and finally moisturising of the skin, getting clearer skin is way more than that.

Not that those 3 options or steps aren’t good, I will share with you 5 unusual ways to get cleaner and clearer skin in this post.

WHEN THERE IS A WILL | HOUNDSTOOTH & GRID

Mixing print on print or pattern on pattern is one of my favourite things to do when it comes to styling. Another is mixing delicate fabrics with tough fabrics to create balance or juxtapositions.

Today, let’s focus on mixing print on print. I have also decided to move Motivation for Monday down to the bottom of the post because some people are only here to read fashion and style and not motivation. If you read my motivation, please read it below. I thank you for reading.

Now back to fashion !

PRIMER DILEMA | WHY YOU SHOULDN’T USE MILK OF MAGNESIA AS A PRIMER

A must have for me in my makeup regimen is my face/foundation primer because I have a combination skin. Combination skin means that my t-zone gets oily than the rest of my face. To tame the oil, I either use my favourite face primer or I use an oil mattifier. Both of them helps control oiliness or secretion of oil on my face.

Just the same way there is a primer for the face. There is also a primer for the eyes. Today is all about the face/foundation primer and the importance of NOT using the “MOM”, milk of magnesia as a face primer. The use of mom or milk of Magnesia as a face primer seem to be a trend in the beauty community. Today, I am going to share with you few reasons why you should NOT use them as a primer.

Behold ! All things are new | Brand New Moj in Touch

When I embarked on this “blogging journey”, I knew deep down my heart I didn’t know what I was doing. However, I knew a part of me I wanted to share with the world could die inside of me if I didn’t start the journey. Even though I wasn’t clear about how and why, it was my love for fashion and the passion I had to succeed in what ever thing I do that has inspired me to continue since I started. And everyday, the more I put in, the more I get out of it. Would I say it has been easy, NO it hasn’t but it is worth it.
