There isn’t really much to say about this beauty. It’s just gorgeous…..end off.
But like all things, I get on these bandwagons late. Might have to try and pick it up in New York when I go there. It’s is so much cheaper in the U.S.A and most of the great colours sold out in the UK weeks ago.They retail around £320 in the UK, which is a fabulous price point for a great designers leather bag.
My problem with diffusion lines, is that a lot of the time they leave out the luxury bits that made the label so famous. Then they plaster the brand name all over it which ruins all elegance! All in the name of making it more ‘affordable’, they make it tacky. So a lot of the time, I’m better off at Zara!
I currently own no designer bags, so it takes something pretty beautiful to make me want to spend my hard earned cash.
I am showing the orange and green because they are the only colours I really love. If your going to spend the money, be daring!
I just had one of those weeks that I’m so glad it’s over. The saturday before my card got swallowed by a card machine, so I spent the week without easy access cash. Of course this was just before a hair appointment so I had to get my friend to pay for my hair. Then my hair is done woo, but then spent the week watching four of the weave tracks all but fall out. No one should pay for that….pin anyone? Then Friday I confirm that my phone is definately lost/stolen, having searched for what seems like an eternity. Cannot get through to the insurance company till next week and urgh! None of those things were big enough to cause a ruckus individually but add it to tiredness and frustrationville and voila! Truthfully I didn’t even want to go to Church on Sunday. But as usual God showed up and cheered me right up again. Of course it’s not up and Hollywood fixed, but God gives us the tools to handle life. I reckon the greatest is patience……and cake of course. Saying that He also reminded me to rest. As this is a scheduled post from the night before I’ll try to type quickly.
Last week I loved…..
this deliciousness by Ituen Basi. Saw this forever ago but a good Yoruba friend of mine showed it to me again and told me it has a name lol. ‘Oleku’ is a revival of a Nigerian 70′s style that has made a comeback. I’m getting one done at the moment. Still trying to find shoes to match. It is really hard to know what shoes to pick!
Booked tickets to this incredble place, drumroll! dum dum dum dum……….
The home of Friends, fashionable Sex and the City, yellow taxi cabs and way too many lightbulbs. NEW YORK BABY! When I was younger I loved to travel and signed up to every trip I could scrape the money for. Somewhere along the line I got busy. Seeing the world starts with one trip, thanks to relatives who live abroad.
Fallen in love with this hairstyle, with the right accessories or a fresh flower it would make a gorgeous bridal do!
This youtuber makes me laugh so so so much. An evening playing catchup on his old videos was awesome. Thanks little sis for recommending him.
This dress by Religion on ASOS. It’s different from my usual taste but I like it…
Have a great week everyone and remember to search for the lesson in the challenge
Let me know what you think, what are you looking forward to this week?
I’m in bed(yay) on my day off work(more yay). I’ll be honest I’m not intending to leave my room for a good couple of hours. I got my snacks, food and portable heater. I’m living the life!
A while ago I heard a future bride discussing whether or not it is possible to have a natural hairstyle on her wedding day. In my head I was infuriated. How could she debate whether or not it was possible? If you choose to go for hair extensions, it’s your choice but it is definitely a possibility. In the light of day, I remembered that it wasn’t this ladies fault.
One of my favourite authors, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, is about to release a book I am super happy about. The novel ‘Americanah’ has taken the hair debate out of the black arena and made it a global political issue.On Channel 4, The New Yorker and the Ted Conference. Gosh, I love this woman.
I have heard younger girls being taught that in order to have success in a high powered careers afro hair is ill-advised? Is this is the legacy we are leaving? There is an impression that a natural texture is ‘less than’, ‘too eccentric’, ‘not professional’ etc etc. Sorry but what??!! What happened to breaking through stereotypes and being the change, not the problem. More importantly as a Christian I can’t help but wonder, where is God’s role in all of this? If you believe in God, surely He is the operating ingredient in our success. Hopefully people see the Creators work in our job interviews, not just our Brazilian………extensions.
We speak of being modern women, but contradict ourselves by agreeing and conforming with those who judge us by our hair. If God knows the future and destined us to attain to higher heights, surely He created in us all that we need. Choose your hair style, ANY hairstyle, because you like it. Not to cover up a beautiful natural work.
As far as I’m concerned, this debate is not over.
Hype about Americanah:
PS: Chimamanda if your reading, coffee sometime? I’ll even pay!
How y’all doing!!??? Okay, so I’m not about to get all American on you. Unfortunately in real life my accents are truly appalling :-/.
There are so many trends in full force at the moment, mixed prints, neon lego colours, iridescence etc etc. I have to admit, I’m not the best with following trends. The truth is, I cannot be bothered. Following design is way more interesting for me, seeing what’s new and innovative. This is one of the reasons I love posting random finds…because life is one massive treasure hunt(insert cheesy happy smile). It is very easy to end up with a wardrobe of pieces that you are waiting to come back into fashion. The easiest way to avoid this is by buying classic styles with trendy details.
