ADIDAS TRACKSUIT AND A BODY SUIT. OOTD 25:05:2017

Hey guys what is popping? Today I’m coming at you with another Fashion blogpost featuring these bomb ass pants that have for some reason being trending. I’ve had these pants for the longest time and only today I decided to take them out and do a little something with them.


I actually didn’t even think these pants would fit me when I took them out because of how long ive had them but God was like daughter, you don’t need to spend that R300, I got you.  I don’t know where I bought them but you can get something like this at Sportscene or Adidas.

The shirt I got from Legit last year on black Friday and I’ve been loving it forever since. It’s actually a body suit and I like how sexy it can make an outfit. 

Thank you so much for reading. If you loved this post please give it a like and then share it to someone else.

COPING WITH SCHOOL, WORK AND SOCIAL MEDIA.[UPDATE]

maxresdefault

From the end of last year I had been looking for a Job. Reason being that I wanted to study this year and my mom didn’t have the money to take me to University or to any other further education Institute. Beginning of this year I found a job at shop called Clarks and decided that I would study Marketing Long Distance.

I have been doing that ever since and I must admit, it has been hard. I work from Monday to Sunday and get 5 days off every month. I am very grateful for the job that I have because it gives me a source of income and I still get to study however I have literally no time. Hence why I’ve been blogging less and posting less on social media.

While doing this I have met many beautiful people who make this less harder than it is. I have laughed continuously and learnt many different things. I have learnt that each day is an opportunity to learn and I feel like I have learnt to grow up emotionally and to deal with things in better ways. I have learnt to be independent and to stand on my own and not feel like there is something wrong with that.

Even though I will be posting less and doing less of the things I love, I want you guys to know that I love you so much and that I am gonna be trying my best to deliver content continuously. I don’t want you guys to feel like I am losing interest in this whole thing because you guys mean so much to me but I want you guys to understand the situation that I am in.

Once again thank you so much for the support that you guys have given me from the start till now. I honestly appreciate it.

Leave a comment telling me the hardest situation you have had to go through in your life, if you want to be private then you can email me.

COLLABMAS DAY 13 : THE PERFECT RED LIPSTICK FOR CHRISTMAS.

Hey guys what is up?! So today I’ve got no collaboration with anyone so I’m going solo. That was not going to stop me from posting though so I decided that I would talk to you guys about the perfect red lipstick for Christmas.

The perfect red lipstick for Christmas for me has got to be a classic red. No, not an orange glossy one but a matte bold red. it’s got to be that kind of red that makes people turn their heads and the one that keeps everyone looking at your lips. Most people don’t like red lipsticks because they feel like it brings them more attention or that it’s too out there but I feel like it’s the perfect way to make a statement and always be remembered. And I mean Christmas is the perfect excuse to wear red.

In my opinion Christmas is not complete without the colour red. I mean red is the  first colour you think of when someone says “Give me an example of a Christmas colour.” so why not wear it? Anyway since I’m  done for this post my chosen red lipstick is the Stay fast Liquid Matte Vinyl in the colour engine red? 

If you read my Beauty Haul post featuring Isabellablogss  then you know I’ve been loving the Stayfast Liquid Matte Vinyl in Engine Red. This colour is absolutely amazing and I like the classy look that you get from it. Also this lipstick is semi matte and I love that because it looks all put together as if it won’t move. Also everyone wants to look as classy as possible on Christmas and that’s nothing that this lipstick can’t give to you. The colour will go absolutely amazing with any skin tone and can A grade any outfit. 

Ps this lipstick is more vibrant than this. The edits are just taking that away.

Yuup guys so that is the lipstick I feel would be the perfect red for Christmas. I honestly feel like you can’t do any wrong with  this one and that it would definitely up your Christmas spirit.

COLLABMAS DAY 5: 5 HAIRSTYLES FOR SHORT RELAXED HAIR.

Hey guys what is up? So today i’m collaborating with Adropofserendipity and we are doing something I’ve never actually done on my blog – Hairstyles! We’ve decided too both do different types of hairstyles for our kind of hair. We both do have different types of hairs so this will be really fun and interesting. We both have the same posts so do go check her out after reading this!

So for the first hairstyle I wanted to do something easy and that anyone can do. Instead of only just doing a  bun I wanted to add a little more funk to it so I did tease my hair at the ends and trust me the hairstyle went from a 0 to a 100.

The second hairstyle is something that is very easy to do that still looks stylish. So this is for when you don’t wanna be all too extra but  you still want to look like you’ve tried. All I did for this hairstyle is sweep all my hair to one side and then braid it down so that your hair is secure and then for more juice I did leave out some of my hair on one side.


The third hairstyle is actually something that I came up with as of right now. My initial take was to have a leave out on the side that was singly braided but as I was doing it, I saw more potential into the hairstyle. So what I did was part a square in the middle of my head then with the hair in the square I twist braided it all singly. Then to get the shape I twisted all the  twist braids into one braid until it was one huge braid then I just stuck it to back of my head with a clip, making sure to keep it in a circular kind of shape.

whats nice about this hairstyle is that you can have your hair both down or in a bun and it would still look good.

 

 

The next hairstyle I did was this princessy kind of hairstyle. I actually tried this hairstyle out yesterday first and I actually liked how it looked/

The next hairstyle I have is of a bun. This is an easy low bun hairstyle with some juice. All I did was part some hair out on the side and then tie everything up so that it looked like a normal side out bun but then instead of just leaving the hair out I braided it all and then clipped it at the back of my head.

The last hairstyle I did was very easy. In fact I normally do this hairstyle when I’m just chilling at home or even when going out. So for this hairstyle all you have to do is part out a square in the middle of your head to the size of your liking  and then just tie that up into a bun then you can either leave your hair down with it or tied up depending on what you prefer.

TIP : To make these hairstyles a little more saucy you can actually add some gel to your edges so that everything looks put together.

Yuup guys so those are the Hairstyles I managed to come up with. Tell me what your favorite hairstyle is and what is your go to hairstyle. Anyway thank you guys for reading and do please go and check out Adropofserendipity on her blog and her Instagram, honestly I love reading her captions and she’s such a sweet girl. Also wanna say thank you to her for agreeing to this collab!

COLLABMAS DAY 2 : BEAUTY HAUL.

Hey guys what is up? So welcome to day 2, today i’m collaborating with the amazing Isabellablogss who you should totally go and check out right after this! We are collaborating on a beauty haul, basically any beauty products we have recently bought. Lets get it!

STAY FAST LIQUID MATTE VINYL IN ENGINE RED.

GUYS!! This is like the perfect bold red lipstick. I actually wore this when I went to prom and was highly satisfied with the colour. This is like the colour you wear when you go for coffee with the queen. I bought this at Redsquare for R119.95 which was worth it for what I got. However I did notice that this lipstick even though matte, does transfer easily. Like it goes on whatever glass or culinary you use so it gets messy quite fast. So whenever I use it I always kiss a tissue paper and go in with the extra powder to keep it in place.

YARDLEY STAYFAST VELVET BLUSHER IN RUSTIC ROMANCE.

One word “OBSESSED”. I’ve never been fond of blush, I’ve seen people (especially dark skin people) wearing the wrong shades of blush and so I’ve never given much attention to blush but when this other lady helped me find this particular blush I was dying because it just fit. I didn’t feel weird with it and it didn’t pop that much that people would look at you twice in a bad way. So I definitely recommend this. I bought mine for R99.95 ar Redsquare but only realized now that I could have bought it for half the price at Clicks but its okay.

LOREAL BROW ARTIST SHAPER 


Mhmm. So I dont remember how much this was but it was between R80-R100 I think and honestly I wouldn’t buy this again. Firstly the pencil kept on breaking and whenever I sharpened it, it went back to square one and it was a struggle trying to put it on and then also the colour was definitely not enough(well for me). I got like a dark brown but I like full eyebrows and this eyebrow pencil was not giving it to me so honestly I’m running away from it. However the wax/glue does its job and keeps your brows in place.

YARDLEY STAYFAST PRESSED POWDER IN WALNUT 13


I bought this power for R139.95 when I was going to prom just to touch up my makeup and make sure everything was in place. However I ended up not using it because  my foundation didn’t even move and honestly I never felt the need to touch up anything. I can not say whether i recommend this product or not because I haven’t used it that much to actually tell you what is has done for me so  honestly I have no idea. I will keep you updated though.

BELLE COLLECTION 4 COLOUR EYESHADOW

Okay so this is like a shimmery 4 colour palette. I bought this only because it was on sale and I was just like “get in the bag”. At first I was not that fond of it simply because the colours are shimmery and not in a nice way and honestly i prefer standard coloured shadows. However i did put a drop of  water on the palettes each which made the colours creamy and kind of metallic which made me like them a little more and for R20 you should be expecting such quality so i’m not gonna give it a lot of criticism. Oh they also have grey undertones which doesn’t really work in favour for my skin tone and as time goes the colours seem to fade away.

CLICKS/DISCHEM BEAUTY BLENDER.


I’ve never used a high end beauty blender before, infact this is my first ever beauty blender so honestly I’ve no idea what the difference could be. However I do love this beauty blender, it does the job for me and I’ve learnt so many ways to make it more effective so I can’t complain.

ESTEE  LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR STAY IN PLACE FOUNDATION



I’ve used this foundation more than at least 10 times and I can say I’m here for it. It is super matte which kind of urkes me since I love dewy makeup but this foundation covers everything very well(not that I have anything to cover up but you know what i mean). I will give a full review on this foundation soon but overall it works in my favour.

REVLON LOVER HER MADLY GIFT SET.


Okay so I am absolutely obsessed with this gift set! When I bought it, It was only just because it was on sale but trust me when I say I fell right in love the moment I opened it. The original price is R375 but God was holding my hand that day and I only got it for R170 which was a great bargain. Considering how much I love it.

So the set consists of

Out of the 4 things I loved 2 of the things. The perfume and body spray absolutely smell good and they stay on for long so I absolutely love them. However I don’t wear nail polish(religious reasons) so I didn’t get to try it out so I can’t give my full review on it but the colour looked good. However the matte balm guys, this is just not doing it for me. The colour is so pretty and with my skin tone this colour would have easily looked good on me but however that was not the case. The formula to say the most sucks , I dont know if it is my one that is like this or if they are alll like this but I honestly did not like it.

When I applied it, it had a chalky kind of texture and the more you applied is like the more you ruined it. Honestly it did/ does not look flattering at all.However I am going to find some kind of way to make it look good because it does smell good and I think it has potential.

CELLTONE SOOTHING CLEANSING LOTION

Okay so I bought this lotion for R150 it is the number 3 and It does work as a cleanser and make up remover which is a plus.This is my first ever makeup remover so I really can’t say that much about it or compare it to other things but it does its job really well. It removes my makeup perfectly and It is the only cleanser that I’ve ever put on my face that doesn’t react badly. This one more of just leaves my face the way it was before but cleaner. I think it has ginger too because it does start burning when you put it on for a long time. Would I buy it again? I’m actually not sure because honestly I don’t see the benefits or disadvantages of it.

Yup guys so that is the end of my beauty haul! Please do go and check out Isabella’s Choice, she will be doing the same post too on her blog so go see what she bought. Also I want to say Thank you to her for agreeing to do this collab, It has been really fun. Also you can follow her on Instagram Isabellablogss
