The obvious choice to pair this hot pink look with would be black but today, I decided to revamp this cape jacket with some floral. Today, I bring you some pink stuff……
Hair they say is the crowing glory of the woman. Yep, I totally agree because we all love to make our hair and look fabulous. However, when it comes to natural hair, the information out there is so much and can be overwhelming if I may add. In my previous Hair blog I called “What You Need to Know Before You Go Natural“, I said, your natural hair is like a baby, how I raise mine may not necessarily be how you raise yours; the most important thing is to embrace your hair journey and do what works for you”.
So today, I have some natural hair hacks for you. It is like an update of my own hair journey, products I have been using to get soft and manageable hair, combs I now use and the new hair dryer for natural hair my hairdresser bought for me…
This was the look I wore while running errand last weekend. For me, when I have like a million and one thing to do, I like to wear something extremely comfortable and this is it. If I don’t run my errands with a kind of pants like this, I turn up in a free dress in the look HERE so I can move fast and freely.
If you call me the queen of looking elegant, you wouldn’t be too far from spilling out my “character in style” and that was WHY I shared the blog on HOW to look elegant so we all can “SLAY” like queens. There is just something about dresses that make every woman look so polished and well put together. However, if you want to take elegance to the next level, maxi dresses is the way to go. Whether you are going to the red carpet or you are a wedding guest, maxi dresses make you look so fine. Let’s check out some maxi dresses I made look a million dollars……
I am writing as I travel on the train this morning and I couldn’t help but to reflect on exactly what I was doing this time last year. This time last year, I was on a flight to England and to keep me busy, I was writing the second draft of my first book, Use What You Have. Use What You Have is a book I wrote on HOW to discover your gifts (purpose), how to own them, embrace them and HOW to fulfill your purpose in life by using your GIFTS.
Although I go to England often, on that particular occasion, I went to England to be with one of my best friends who was having her first baby. In the next few days, I will be back to be with the same friend to join her in the celebration of the birthday of this child that was born this time last year……
I look for different ways to improve myself, what I do and maximise the skills that I already have so I can serve you, my dear audience better. And because of that desire and optimism, I am back to doing look books, pairings and styling videos.
When I first started my YouTube channel, this was what I set out to do and along the line, I started doing other things. Although I will be doing every other thing I do before, I will be more than very happy to bring you more styling videos to help you “maximise your closet”.
I have always known that to take care of others effectively, I have to take care of myself first, this is my own personal philosophy. But sincerely, nobody can give what they don’t have anyways. In caring for me, I focus on taking care of my body, soul and spirit. And for that reason, one of the ways I take care of myself is that I take care of my physical by exercising to stay strong, fit and energetic and NOT necessarily to stay thin……this is a bonus we get when we exercise.
As requested by you, here is my exercise and fitness routine video. Like I said in this week’s motivation, “Eat That Frog” and also in this video, no matter how thin you are, we all need some form of exercise…….
I know, the title does not sound delicious. Right? Although I haven’t eaten frogs before BUT from the look of it, it must taste horrible 🙂 Okay, let me get serious. Today on motivation for Monday, I want to share a little something with you that has the potential to change your thoughts and maybe life.
By now, you should know I can go on and on about dresses for days. What’s not to love about them? They are easy to throw on and go; they are make you feel feminine, chic, classy and polished especially when you find a good one; and they can be dressed up and down. Life is even better when you find one you can wear in more than one way. Now, let’s check this one out……
Have you ever wondered why all of a sudden, you stop seeing some people as often as you would normally see them? You just notice that you don’t see them as much as you would. They are well, they are alive BUT you just don’t see them anywhere from social circle to parties or in places you would normally see them? Today on motivation for Monday, I bring you the true meaning of purposeful isolation.
Do you have pieces in your wardrobe that are timeless? These pieces are there year in and year out and every time you wear them, they look like new. Today, my outfit of the day is one of those timeless pieces that I reach for every Summer only to get asked, where is this dress from? Now let’s have a look at it.
The first half of the year is now over! In case you don’t understand what that simple line means, it means that JANUARY to JUNE 2017 is gone and it’s gone forever and we will never see those months again. However, we have the whole of July – December of 2017 to do GREAT things. Today on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you to RISE AGAIN. What does this mean?
Anyone who has been with us here on Moj In Touch from the start would know that white is my favourite colour to wear. What a choice of colour you would say right? I know 🙂 This is because white is so fresh and makes everyone look youthful, awake and cheerful. So today, I bring you a laid back look book + some styling TIPS of course. Let’s check it out…..
Not once, not twice and not even three times have I written blogs on the reason-WHY you must BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, IN YOU, IN THE POWER OF YOUR DREAMS and most importantly, in YOUR GIFTS!
Initially, when I started this journey of “banking” on my gift of encouragement and maximising it, I must confess, I was afraid because I do not carry titles like “Coach” or “Mentor” and I do not even consider myself a “Leader”. However, I stepped back a bit and I approached the throne of grace with boldness to ask God how He wanted me to do it. And I got answers. Answers like do not be afraid and just go ahead to do what I have placed in your heart and so I continued…….
Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to share with you the power of believing in YOU……..
So far, I have shared 2 perfume posts with you. 1, I shared my Summer perfume collection and HOW to buy perfumes cheaper with you, HERE and I also shared 7 ways to make your perfume last longer with you, HERE. Those are blogs you don’t want to miss, catch up on them to get all the “load-down”.
Last year, one of my girlfriends gave me a Burberry perfume. It is the Burberry Brit Rhythm. The moment I tried it on, I fell absolutely in love with it. I have worn the perfume since then, of course along side other ones from my collection. Since she gave me that perfume, I have collected a few more Burberry Perfumes and because they are all so good, today, I bring you my Burberry perfume collection and review + WHY you should try at least one of the ones I have tried.
By the way, did you know that wearing eyelash extensions would make you have bigger, bolder and sexier eyes?
The last look book I did of a maxi dress was taking a cheaper version of an expensive dress and making that dress look expensive. Today, I am sharing another look book of a dress with you but this time, in a “work wear” kind of way. However this dress can go to many places and I can’t wait to wear it to the many places I have in mind.
A lot of us belittle our strengths. We think what we can do doesn’t matter. We think people who have gone farther than us in life are superior to us and we see people who are at the top as “gods”; we feel intimidated by them and a lot of times, we unconsciously start living in their shadow and our #goals become to be like them instead of been the better version of ourselves, who God has called us to be. Today on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on WHY you must find your own voice and use it.
I am a strong believer that how much your pay for your clothes does not determine how well they look on you. In simple terms, you can buy expensive and look cheap, on the other hand you can buy cheap and look lush and expensive. It is how you style your clothes that matters and not what you pay for it. Today, I will be sharing with you how I made this cheap dress look lush and expensive.
First, see the article I wrote on 7 WAYS TO LOOK EXPENSIVE. In the blog, you will learn how to style your cheap clothes like they are expensive.
Purpose, the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. For us to be purposeful, we have to set out or embark on a journey. All of us!
Today’s blog is called, “this journey called purpose” and in this blog, I will be sharing five, well maybe six reasons with you on this journey called purpose. Let’s do this……………
Last time I styled this Trench coat, I wore it as a dress with belt and high heels. You can see that look HERE. And because I am a huge fan of maximising my closet, I thought to share the Trench with you again now that it is warmer. This time, with an open toe Sandals because it is relatively warm with a little bit of rain here and there.
It is my desire to help as many women and men through my contents to look well, dress well and go out their to fulfill purpose. Let’s face it, how we look is an essential part of how we present ourselves and how people see us whether we like it or not. In the real world, they say it takes 8 seconds to make the right impression and once that chance is lost, it may be hard to get another.
Also my believe is, you do not have to have a lot to look a lot, even if you are on a very tight budget, you can still dress well, look well and be fabulous. So today, I bring you, how to shop for clothes on a budget.
We have being born with them. They are inside of us already. They are unique to us. They have being given to us FREE OF CHARGE. What am I talking about? I am talking about GIFTS. We all have them. A lot of us don’t even know we have gifts but we do. In this blog HERE, I gave a thorough definition and a break down of what a GIFT or talent is. Have a look. Today, I will be sharing with you 5 things your gifts can do for you.
