Weekend Blues | #MTNLinkForum, Natural Hair Swag & #MTNProjectFame7 Eviction Party

Hello lovelies,
Happy New Week and New Month to you all *muah*
I had fun this past weekend. My weekends have been full of Project Fame, Project Fame Eviction Parties and the regular. This past one though, there was a break in routine. On Friday, we were at #MTNLinkForum which is for budding entrepreneurs and professionals, on Saturday was the regular Project Fame show and then the Eviction Party for Taiwo.

Of course, I took pictures. Some lovely makeup and natural hair ones too you bet
#goodmorning people. Trying to take a picture but Femi just had to photobomb me. So good morning from both of us. Will post an #OOTD & #makeup picture later. Like the #hairstyle? #instahair #instadaily #updo #naturalhair

My Hair | Bantu Knots Swag

I have tried Bantu knots once before. They didn't really come out well and the much anticipated Bantu knotout was a huge disappointment. Can't say I have mastered the Bantu knots to perfection (improved tremendously since I don't need bobby pins to hold the knots in place anymore. Have to reknot after a couple of days but it's aite) and definitely not even close to mastering the knotouts but I am much better at creating the knots now.

My Hair | Lopsided Pineapple Bun to Church?

By now, y'all must have figured out that I love playing with my hair. One minute I have no time for it and the very next, I use it to create some kinda amazeballs stuff.

Usually, my hair is in single plaits OR a bun. On this sunday, I did a bun.....but a lopsided one.

(1923|Guest|Post) Stylish & Fashionable Pre-Season Basics for 2014

If the idea of pre-collections seem a little puzzling to you, it’s time to get acquainted, because while they may not provide the biggest sartorial hits of the season, what they do serve up are endless style staples that’ll transcend seasons.
J. Hud is gorgeous in this LBD right? LBDs never go out of style. 

Think of this as a pre-cursor to the new season - an appetiser that whets your sartorial appetite before the main course arrives, if you will. Pre-collections bridge the tricky gap between the end of one season and the beginning of another, when it’s not quite warm enough for your summer wardrobe, but not yet cool enough for your autumn wear, either; they provide the perfect transitional pieces that’ll carry you through the switch-over with ease.

This, of course, makes these pieces less season-specific, too, which is key to a savvy investment: unlike main collections, where it can be easy to pinpoint exactly what season a particular piece came from (and therefore easy to date), these have an anonymous, wear-forever quality that transcends time. Need another reason? Pre-collections are cheaper than their main ready-to-wear counterparts, too.

Inspire | 12 Ways to Live a Full Life by Shannon Ables

One of my favourite blogs to follow and read for life, work, fashion and even food 'inspiration (inspiration being the operative word here) is "The Simply Luxurious Life". 

On one of my regular rounds, I came across this post. I have been in a bit of a rut recently, relying mainly on God and work for support (don't get me wrong, I love my family but I AM a loner most of the time hardly ever sharing whatever it is I might be going through). I came across this post on Shannon's blog and it seemed so selfish not to share, in view of my recent loss, this is apt.

FOTD | Work Day Blues

Hello lovelies,
I've been on a bit of a hiatus from makeup. Mainly because I never knew when I was going to burst into tears. I am trying to come out of it and move on but if you read this post, then you know why I'm  on the verge of bursting into tears and also, why I seem to have been avoiding facebook.

Nwayz, I have a makeup post today and I am very happy about it. Seriously, I started this blog with makeup, lol. Don't get me wrong, I love my natural hair but makeup will always be a first love for me.
On to the look for today. Basically a typical work day look using blue eyeshadow from the Sleek Makeup iDivine palette. I was having a menswear week - sweaters, pants, even shoes; paired with minimal accessories, natural hair and makeup (of course)
went a little off and used blue
