Don’t you just love blazers, there’s something chic about a woman in a blazer. Honestly I never really liked my blazer at school, my long arms were the reason because it could never reach my wrists. Such a petty reason to dislike something right? At this time I was plagued with insecurities. I remember a time I would slouch because I felt too tall or only wear sports bras because my boobs were too big. There’s just so many negative reasons we feel our heads with when growing up. Sometimes they are stuck with us for the rest of our lives, sometimes we embrace them and find beauty in our flaws.
I love blazers now that I’ve done a bit of growing up. My favorites are the checked blazers. They are so unique, they give a very classy and timeless appearance. I sometimes hear ladies thinking that certain items are not suited for them. I can assure you blazers are suited for every body and they are very versatile. They come in different styles, shapes and sizes. Small framed women can get away with any style, the same with medium framed women while large framed women look best when the blazer has no back slit as they tend to lift I find. So no excuses ladies, if you always wanted a blazer but felt insecure about wearing it, please toss those insecurities and embrace those flaws and get yourselves a blazer.
You can wear it going to the office, running errands,drinks with friends you name it. Whatever the occasion a blazer will accommodate it.

Im from South Africa for those who have not read my about page. The weather is warm and our winter is a sweater and a jacket,10 degrees being the minimum. I never really noticed Autumn months. There was really nothing to notice, advantages of living in the city though I didn’t grow up in the city I still have no recollection of autumn memories.
Now moving to France there’s two things I was looking forward to in terms of weather, the snow which I saw in the movies especially those Christmas ones with smoked chimneys and the beautiful colorful autumn trees with leaves falling making decorational colors. There’s such a strong significance here something dead yet looking so alive.It’s an understatement to say I was excited.
My love for fashion led me to these beautiful pumpkins. I love the color palettes they represent and the warmth they give,no curving here.In my opinion every girl’s autumn wardrobe should incorporate these colors. I love the soft colors for example your pastels though they are all year colors but they compliment the warm colors very well, it’s a match made in fashion heaven if such exits.Then you have the warm colors like your oranges and your browns etc which screams autumn .Then the deep colors which I find are mostly suited for winter like your pines and navies etc but if you play around with them they contrast beautifully. It’s time to forget any fashion rules you may know. When it comes to style it’s your perspective that matters.
My autumn fever began when I discovered the vintage sweaters my mother inlaw gave me as she probable anticipated they will come in handy. Can we be friends so I can come raid your Nana’s wardrobes , just a thought. I found myself obsessing as I walked into my favorite store and looked at nothing but sweaters,socks,boats and coats. The cosiness and heart warming feeling they give makes me want to cozy up all day wearing my socks and sweater by the fireplace sipping on a glass of red, would not life be perfect but my 6 months old twins would never allow such luxury.
So there you have it, the secret is out I’ve fallen What do you love most about fall? What are your favorite fall must haves?
Below are some of my favorites this fall.
With love xx
As a model of color its always a struggle when you arrive on set excited about the job but worried about how you will look and who your make up artist is.
Makeup artists often dont have all the shades and you are faced with looking a shade or two lighter or darker and looking ghostly at times. I always make it a point to bring my own makeup and educate myself. No one is stealing my shine with bad makeup.
Finding out about fenty beauty I understood immediately where the hype is coming from and honestly it is the best thing that has happened to people of color and with good reason. I remember seeing a clip of a three shades darker lady buying her fenty foundation and she was in tears.
So i decided to buy myself the fenty rum and truffe stix for highlighting and contouring. Im happy to say im inlove and i love the convenience. Im also a mom so my time is limited and the match stix are the future as i dont have to spend hours doing makeup.
I achieved these two looks: day and night by using the following:
Bobbi brown foundation stick @bobbibrown, fenty rum and truffe match stix @fentybeauty,eyeliner,mascara and lipstick @maccosmetics,eyeshadow @clinique
Below are a few of my favorites which you can buy.
