    MINIMALISM WITH A TWIST

    |How to transform your regular White Shirt || DIY *drum rolls* Well, the Lookbook for this month is finally here!!! As you all know, every month my outfit posts will have a theme, you can view  February’s here. This month is all about Minimalism (be sure to check every week for posts on it) Minimalism is all about simplicity “less is more” ; its a movement in art, design and living, which strips everything to bare essentials. Minimalist Fashion has been on for a long while now and it’s certainly here to stay. Usually, Minimalism involves pastels, blacks and neutrals; how about styling black and white separately and together?! Well,…

    #MWStyles – FOREST QUEEN

    It’s #InternationalWomensDay , so I’m throwing back to this shoot I styled last year. I also double as a Stylist.    I chose to infuse the Greek Goddess into it, to give a Floral and Greek Queen, reason for the model’s attire. Added the flowers, to give a subtle look for the queen. Though she’s a queen and fierce but yet she’s kind and knows what she wants for herself and her people. The beauty and wonder of trees and nature itself give affirmation of God’s creativity and perfection.  Just because she’s from the forest, doesn’t limit her to her surroundings, she embraces the diversity of people and races and…

    HOW TO: SWITCH FROM WORK TO DINNER + DIY

So, here’s a way to Slay at work and also to your dinner, all you need is a long-sleeved shirt (which basically everyone wears to work!) Work- wear Dinner Wear (Quick DIY)    The same shirt used for work can be…

    KNOWING YOUR SELF-WORTH

    Hey dear, Like I promised in my last post here, this is a post about self-worth, knowing your self-worth goes a long way in discovering yourself, tackling depression(like I discussed here ) and so much more. Self Worth, Self Esteem, Self Love all mean the same thing and that’s what we all have been trying to do and constantly remind ourselves, but do we really know how to Love ourselves in Christ?. That’s what God wants, not looking for love in worldly things. Most people remember to love themselves and their worth when things go bad and start looking for it in other things and ways apart from Christ, which is…

    HOW TO: TACKLE DEPRESSION

      Hey you! It’s #ThrowbackThursday , and I decided to throw it back to this post I wrote for a magazine last year where I debunked the myths about the depression and also shared tips on tackling it, Depression or Mental Illness is not something we are all not familiar with, its something a lot of people don’t talk about because of fear of being laughed at or not taken seriously. It’s something I’ve also suffered from and dear to my heart and also felt the need to share because I believe someone out there needs it. Here’s the unedited version. P.S. You don’t need to be suffering from depression…
