COLLABMAS DAY 9 : FASHION MOODBOARD.

Hey guys what is up?! Welcome to another day closer to Christmas. Today’s collaboration is with Luke India Ramos and we are both doing Fashion inspired posts. I am gonna be showing you guys my fashion inspired mood board and all the fashion things that inspire me. Please do go check out Luke’s post that will be up tomorrow after reading this and show him some love.

Okay so I think the sole purpose of a moodboard is to have something without actually spending the money. I mean it’s like window shopping or a wishlist, you’ve got everything laid out in front of you without even having to even have it in your cupboard.

On my mood board I’ve got a variety of things that keep me going and that I feel with them, they just take an outfit to a whole new level. I feel like you could go from a 0 to a hundred with some of these pieces.

There’s really no reason for having 2 mood boards but the fact that I couldn’t fit everything into one board. So I actually decided to do two of them showcasing everything I love and making these is actually so much fun. I really enjoy all this.

Yup guys so this my mood board and basically all that is here is everything that I feel the need to buy or that I think looks absolutely amazing. If you’ve got your own mood board posted as a blog post please do leave a link below I’d really love to check it out.

COLLABMAS DAY 6: CHRISTMAS WISHLIST.

 

Hey guys what is up?!  Who’s excited for Christmas because I am on that A grade??! Todays collaboration is with Lily who owns the blog Tea Lily and we have decided to do a Christmas wishlist. I mean what’s the best way to tell people what to get you for Christmas than a wishlist.


"Wish list 1" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring Casadei and Aquazzura

Boots.

So the first thing that I thought about when I started writing this post was boots. I am such a boot girl that no other shoe stands a chance. I will not even look at it if I have boots in front of me.So there’s 3 types of boots that I have longed for for so long, Thigh high boots, See through boots( I don’t really mind the length” and really high platform boots. Thing is I actually had the platform boots but for some reason my mom thought they were very high.

Jackets.

"WISHLIST 4" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring LE3NO:

If you ask anyone who really knows me they will tell you I suck at jackets. I could have a whole outfit set up that looks bomb but I wouldn’t have a jacket. I don’t even know when last I bought a jacket. So getting any form of jackets would actually help me so much, from any type of sickness and being on worst dressed. I have been loving oversized denim bomber jackets and any long over sized jackets so that would really be nice to add to my closet.

Glasses

Guys I die for glasses, each time I get into a shop I always have to try on their glasses because I think its an addiction. I’ve been loving over sized glasses because I generally have a small face and I just love the way they look on me. So I’d definitely love to add a few more pairs to my non existent collection.

Shirt dresses.

"WISHLIST 3" by journeylekhuleni on Polyvore featuring WithChic and T By Alexander Wang:

This is actually sad for me. I can not tell you how many times I have tried on shirt dresses and they did not suit me. I’m still looking for one that will suit me but at this point it doesn’t look like I am ever going to find one. I think it is maybe my figure but honestly I have no idea.

Bodysuits.

I’m addicted to bodysuits because I love sexy looks and how they all look with anything tight. I feel like they just give you a more stylish look and that’s normally what I look for. I have 2 body suits at the moment but I would love to have 10 so that’s why i’m putting it on my wishlist.

Jeans.

I’m simply adding jeans to this list only because I wear jeans a lot and I feel like having a vast range of them would actually do me well. I don’t have boyfriend jeans because of my non existent waist but I actually would love a pair. I also would love to get lots of jeans in other colours just so that I can switch things up a little.

Yuup guys so that is my Christmas wishlist (did anyone notice how this all became a fashion wishlist, I swear I didn’t even notice)and I hope you guys enjoyed reading it. Please go and check out Lily’s wishlist she’s got some really good things there. Also add her on Instagram, she’s got such a tumblr feed.

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!

 What I made?
Zendaya
 zenyzen-zen
Here Zendaya is wearing a knitted dress that I love so much. This look is something that anyone could completely rock! It is absolutely comfortable and i love that this look could easily go from casual to something formal.The way that Zendaya put the little pump heels in to the outfit just makes it look like she actually tried with the outfit when she could have just picked whatever out. I also love the hair as it makes the outfit a bit more elegant.

Bella Thorne

Here Bella is wearing something that almost all of us have and I like that it is completely casual.You can go anywhere with it and still look stylish.I also like the fact that she put a body suit with the outfit because it makes the outfit a little tad more stylish and sexier. The boots also add a little more sauce to the outfit just so that you don’t see it as just an outfit but something a bit more.

Yuup guys so that it our  looks. Leave a comment telling me which was your favorite look above. Also don’t forget to add Helen on Instagram and read up on her blog. She is such an amazing person. Also wanna say thank you to her to agreeing to do this post.

COLLABMAS DAY 1 : CHRISTMAS BAKING| CHOCOLATE COFFEE VANILLA BISCUITS.


Hey guys how are you?!?? Let’s get this Collabmas started!!! Am I the only one who’s excited about Christmas because I am on Cloud 9. Today I am doing a collaboration with KaylaHopeBlog. We have decided to do a baking post, because honestly what’s Christmas without all the baked goods?! Kayla will be sharing a short bread recipe with you guys on her blog so you should definitely go and check her out right after this.

So I decided to bake some biscuits. Now let’s just keep in mind that I’m a learner in baking lol so please no laughing is allowed. Initially I meant to make chocolate cookies which you can get the initial recipe here but then I didn’t have cocoa powder so I kind of twisted all the ingredients.

However this recipe still tasted so good so I highly recommend it.

INGREDIENTS

* 2 eggs.

* 6 tsps brown sugar.

* 1/2 cup vegetable oil.

* 1 tsp vanilla essence.

* 2 cups plain flour.

* 1 tsp baking powder.

* How ever much hot chocolate powder you’d like.

* 1 tbsp coffee

METHOD

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a clean baking pan with some non sticking pan spray.

2. In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla until well combined.

3. Stir in flour, baking powder, hot chocolate and coffee.

4. Roll circles to any size of your liking and press with a fork or your hands to flatten them.

5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until they look crunchy and cooked in between. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Then you should have something that looks better than this lol.


Honestly don’t judge a book by its cover because in my opinion these taste like heaven and they’d be really amazing on Christmas mornings with some coffee and movies.
I didn’t add any decorations because with the sugar that’s already in here I thought it’d be better not to go over board. I think this way they’d be really great to put in a jar and take them out for some coffee or even hot chocolate and not let them overwhelm you.
Yuup guys so that is the first day of COLLABMAS for you! I have so many great bloggers lined up for this Christmas season so do stay tuned because there will be a blog post everyday till Christmas. I still don’t have collabs for the whole of December so if you’re interested then totally let me know and we’ll come up with something!!
Now don’t forget to check out Kayla’s blog. You’d seriously be amazed at how amazing her blog looks. I was shocked! Also wanna say thank you to Kayla for agreeing to do this collab it does mean a lot to me. We will have another one on the 8th so stay tuned for that too. Follow her instagram account.
Thank you for taking your time to read this post.
You can add me on..
