FEBRUARY 2017 BLOG POSTS IN REVIEW

First, thank you all so much for your good wishes on my birthday. You all made me feel so special and loved. One of my desires is to be able to help people through what I do and I was really happy to receive such feedbacks from you all for my birthday. I am grateful.

Can you imagine?  A lady, Bukola Orobiyi did a special birthday number for me. That is an icing on the cake for me. I have written to her to say thank. Amazing lady with amazing voice. I will be the first to buy her record if she ever releases one. She’s awesome.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST COATS FOR YOUR HEIGHT & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

  My second read this year is a book called Mindset by Carol Dweck. I have learnt what kind of mindset works for growth and which one doesn’t. Coincidentally, one of my Mentees (I currently have 6 of them from different parts of the world) wrote an amazing article about the power of the mind…

REVIEW OF THE REAL TECHNIQUES CORE COLLECTION BRUSHES (#AskMJ)

Hi Mj, Can you please do a review of brushes that are durable and affordable. XO………”A”

 

I was sent a request to help look for a set of make up brushes that are affordable but can stand the test of time. And like I always say, getting flawless make up is not about how expensive your products (make up) are BUT how well you can apply your make up + the tools you use.

 

SINGLE PLEAT SKIRT, GOLD ACCENT & FISH NET TIGHTS

 

When it comes to formal work wear, there are limitations to what we can do because of the dress code rules we have to abide by or with. However, “twerking” what we wear to work in an unexpected way can add some fun and creativity to our looks. This is what I mean……..in all honesty, while pantyhose / tights are tagged a “requirement” in some professional scene or setting, wearing fish net tights is not necessarily professional to work. Am I wrong?

 

5 DRESSES I DIDN’T BUY FOR CHRISTMAS PARTIES BUT CAN BE WORN FOR CHRISTMAS PARTIES

If I am been honest, I am not one who thinks you have to buy a new dress or clothe before you slay for the holiday parties. My character hasn’t changed and my for that reason, my name remains…..”The Maximiser”. Yep, even at Christmas 🙂 Honestly I am writing this blog for the sake of those sisters who are limited on cash but still want to look good.

Today, I bring you 5 dresses I didn’t buy for christmas parties but can be worn for Christmas parties.

 

HOW TO STYLE LEGGINGS & NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

 

As you can tell from the title, it is a 2 in one post . On this blog, we mix the look book with some motivation. Life is too short to be stylish alone. We all have to learn to dress up and show up to fulfil purpose even if our job is a stylist. I am a Stylist by the way who also happens to be a Motivational Speaker.

 

Today, I will be sharing with you how to style leggings and on Motivation, the reason WHY I believe New Year’s Resolutions is “crap” and a goal killer. On my journey to self, I changed just one thing, it was my life philosophy. One of such philosophies is the New Year Resolutions…….

 

 

OVERALL ::: CROPPED PALAZZO & LONG DUSTER

 

I have come to terms that regular length trousers will never be long enough on me no matter how generous they are in length. It is part of my vision to be able to create a line of super long trousers / pants collection in the future for tall women like myself. At least trousers long enough for women with long legs.

Today’s look is another example of a not long enough trousers but “men”, I had to rock it like that 🙂 But seriously, do you have length problems with trousers?

 

THE GOOD DENIM ::: 3 WAYS TO STYLE ONE DENIM

 

One of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe, is trending right now because of her new denim line called the “Good American”. However, after reading the reviews of the denims, I concluded they are good BUT the price is ridiculously high like her fans says. The price of the denim starts at $197. Expensive right?

You may not be able to buy the Good American denim or jeans because they are so expensive but you can wear your high street ones stylishly. This is exactly what I am going to be sharing with you in this post.

Since it is Autumn, all my looks today are Autumn perfect and ones you can take from day to night. Now let’s have a look at them…….

 

I SPENT A DAY WITH YOUTUBE AT GOOGLE HQ, DUBLIN

 

 

At every chance I get, I do my best to inspire everyone to be who they want to be. On today’s post, I have been given another opportunity to share and remind you that it is okay to be who you want to be irrespective of your age, sex, circumstance, background,economic situation or where you live. Your present situation or status doesn’t define you, what you do in that situation is all the matters.

Last Saturday, 17/09, I had the opportunity to go and spend the day with YouTube at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. I opened my email about 2 weeks ago and I saw this invitation. I was humbled, honoured and happy because I was preparing for such a time as this and that is why I do my best to give my YouTube Channel everything.

Since I started doing Youtube, I do my best to upload at least one video a week. A lot of times I make 2 videos doing what I love; beauty, fashion and motivation / inspiration.

After just your morning tea or coffee or lime water, the lipstick is off your lips. Disappointing right? Don’t worry, these 5 simple steps will help your lipstick longer if not all day.

 

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.
