HOW TO SLAY LIKE INDIA. || FT LUKE INDIA RAMOS

Hey guys what is good?! Welcome right back to the blog. So today I’ve got an exciting guest/friend who’s gonna be answering some popping ass questions that we’ve all been wanting to hear about. Luke India Ramos is a fashion and beauty enthusiast that I feel is so underrated because if you see all the work he does and the amount of slayage, I swear people are sleeping on him!!! Anyway today, Luke will be answering 5 questions that will hopefully keep us going for the summer.

11

1. Describe your summer go to outfit

My go to summer outfit would be culottes and a shirt. Off the shoulder and bell sleeve shirts are “haute” at the moment, so that’s what I will be pairing with my culottes and either sneakers or slides this summer. To top it off, a pair of sunglasses will complete the slay.

2. Do you always go with the same style or do you get bored easily and move to the next.

I do. All the time. While still maintaining a minimalist aesthetic, I am constantly changing up my style.

 

 

3. What inspires what you wear.

My outfits are mostly inspired by street style, by what is trending in fashion at the time and by what some of my favourite fashion role models are wearing.

4. Do you think your fashion sense will dramatically change within the next year?

No, I don’t think so. I know so! My style is forever changing and this year I underwent an extreme style change when I shaved all my hair and dyed it pink. I don’t know how dramatically my style will change though but I can certainly tell you that it will.

5. What’s your best tip to always slaying?

I don’t necessarily have tips but I can give you advice. Everyone has their own style, so if you own what you wear and wear it confidently, you are bound to slay. Be sure make sure you have a good face beat too – LOL.

Yuup guys so that is it from Luke India Ramos. Hoepfully you guys will get to see more of him on my blog and hopefully we can get a round 2 of the questions. If you did like this post please give it a like and don’t forget to give him some love by check out Luke on his blog aswell as all his other socials.

ARMY GREEN BOMBER JACKET.

IMG-20170529-WA0120-01

Hey guys what is good?! How is winter treating some of you guys? When winter started rolling in here in South Africa I had easily decided to go shopping for some new jackets. I actually found three new ones to add to the collection but today I want to speak about the army green bomber jacket I picked up from Lehgit.
For the longest time I have been looking for a long army green bomber but have not been fully satisfied with the ones I have been seeing. However when I went to Legit the other day and spotted this one,  Heaven fell to earth. From just looking at it, I had already decided I was leaving with it.

I spotted this one in Campus Square and could already see the outfits that I could create with it in my mind. I’ve been buying a lot of things of this colour and to add this bomber jacket to the collection was such a pleasure. Firstly the jacket is warm! From just looking at it, you would think it’s just a jacket that would make you look nice but at the same time make you freeze but absolutely not! The jacket is honestly so warm that you don’t need to layer anything in.

The jacket has also got that oversized feel to it giving a Rihanna(bad girl) kind of vibe but because it’s also long it’s got that stylish feel to it automatically upgrading any look to the next level. I also love the fact that you can remove the fur on it making the jacket wearable for all seasons.

Because it is an outfit upgrader I easily wear this jacket with simple things inside, For instance I would add in some black jeans/leggings and just a simple top because the jacket already takes the outfit from level to level.

Jacket : Legit
Leggings : Mr Price
Boots : Mr Price

JOURNEYSPEAKS QUESTION AND ANSWER.

Journeyspeaks qna

Hey guys what’s good? Welcome to the first and ultimate Question and Answer!! I have always wanted to host a Q&A but have always been scared to go through with it because I didn’t have much influence. But you know what, We have been doing this for two years and I feel like we are ready to take this on!

Answer : High school was honestly a very fun experience but at the same time something I could say I learnt a lot from. I think most of the things I deal with generally in life and how I deal with them is based from the experiences from high school. One thing I could say I learnt from high school is to be calm and to analyse something from all angles before acting on it. You will never gain anything from making a noise about something you don’t understand.

Answer : Yes I have and to say it was tragic is an understatement. Life broke us apart and God decided to take him to heaven before we could even fully learn of each other.

Answer : Natural how? If you mean makeup wise then the highs would be, your confidence rises on a high and you feel put together. Literally no one can put you down when you know your makeup looks good however the low is that when you don’t have makeup on you feel insecure kinda. You get used to seeing yourself with no blemishes or dark spots that when you see them you feel naked almost.

Answer : I honestly don’t know! I haven’t been consistent with a particular makeup brand that I really can’t choose.I’m more of the girl who’s tried one of each brand through one product you feel?

Answer : Ambition. I like a person who wants more, who won’t accept less but at the same time a person who acts towards his ambitions. If you have ambition and you show qualities of a hard worker then honestly you’ve copped me because I like linking with a person whereby we can push each other to do more.

Answer : Both

 

Question : What is sex?

Answer
Here’s what Google says..



Answer : In five years time I see myself in another country doing content creating permanently and professionally on all platforms. I actually see myself focusing more on the television and music industry and doing more and much bigger creative work.

Answer : Firstly, I love the way and how I deal with tough situations. I’ve noticed how I never fail to bring myself up from tragic situations and I actually respect myself for that. Another thing I love about myself is how big heated I am and how I always look to help others even though I don’t benefit and lastly what I love about myself is how I always find something to make the day. Whether it’s by joking around or doing skits my days are always fun filled and full of laughter that I sometimes can’t deal.

Answer : Lipstick! Girl I don’t know but I always have to have some type of lip product on my lips. I feel like a lipstick will always put a natural or a beat face on a higher level. So I always have a couple of colours in my bag.
Screenshot_2017-06-09-18-54-22-3

Answer : No and no. My family has never actually been the type for pets so I grew up not liking pets. I like people with pets but I don’t think I could ever handle one.

Answer : Firstly I actually wanted to do YouTube(I still do) as a way to reach out to people about the things I loved but YouTube needed more resources that I didn’t have and I felt as though blogging was easier to do plus I had everything for blogging so I started blogging instead.


Answer : Lol this actually makes me laugh. Honesty girl I don’t think there’s a way to get him back without you actually telling him you like him especially since you’re the one who left him. So talk to him and tell him how you feel. But sþince you say he blocked you maybe it’s sign to just move on from him.


Answer : Yes

WEARING MY LA GIRL PRO HD CONCEALER AS FOUNDATION.

For the past few days I’ve been wearing my concealer as foundation and to say I was SHOOK was an understatement. My LA Girl PRO HD Concealer moved me from levels to levels.
I’ve been having a shortage of foundation for the past few days and like a hustler I thought if my concealer can conceal then why not conceal this face?

I use an ordinary cheap concealer that I bought from Dischem for R30.00LA girl PRO HD Concealer and let me just say there’s nothing ordinary about how magical it works. For a cheap product like this the coverage is beyond amazing and lasts the whole day.

I’ve been getting so many comments about my makeup when wearing this concealer as foundation that I’m even considering buying a whole lot of them and using them as foundation.

The concealer is so lightweight that you even forget you have makeup on and I’ve realised that a little can go a long way which is good because then the product will last longer. I also love the fact that the product has the little brush thing on top because you can evenly distribute the product around your main areas.

The problem I had with the concealer is that you need to set it with powder because you makeup will shine and come off as oily but that’s nothing you can’t handle. Also the concealer will leave stains on clothing or anything you touch with your face so  to control that keep some powder with you and be a little more careful.

Another thing I noticed was that you will look dead or atleast i did without any contour or eyeliner so don’t skip those steps. I didn’t use to contour so I’m currently using an eye shadow colour as contour and mixing that with some blush.

However overall the concealer does wonders. It will last you the whole day and you won’t need to touch it up. I would actually rate it a 9/10 because my makeup game has moved from level to level with this concealer. I am hoping that the LA girl foundation that they have out is as good as this because I would love to try it out and it would be a favourite if it was as good.

Thank you for reading and I hope this post was helpful to you.
