Fashion Blogger: Psychologist Larissa Bruin Of From Hats To Heels Blog Is A Popcorn Addict

 Hello Lovelies! how has your week been? Today's blogger feature is an amazing young lady from Amsterdam. I liked Larissa Bruin of From hats to heels blog the first day i came across her photo on tumblr. First thing i admired was her hair, then her outfit and the photography. It's always inspiring seeing people who enjoy what they do, want more from life and totally enjoy getting all they want every step of the way. She was born and raised in a small town but always felt the urge to seek the extraordinary. She loves city trips, fashion and photagraphy. She shares some of her other interests and more in this interesting interview.....

Fashion Bloggers: IFB Links A La Mode For October 23 Featuring A Touching Tribute To Oscar De La Renta

IFB links a la mode october 23rd 2014
 Hello Lovelies, It's a new week, hope everyone started their week with positivity and full of life! Going through some of last week's posts in the Ifb links a la mode roundup featuring one of my posts, I couldn't agree more with the title "Live life"  and the message being passed across. I was especially touched by the post about Oscar De La Renta's death. I didn't know much about him as a person besides his quotes and works i see on runways and red carpets but the questions this brings to mind are; Are you living the life you want? Is the life you are living everything you wanted from life? You are not living your dream life, what are you doing about it?

Personal Style: Beyonce Made Me Do It (African Braids Hairstyle)

Polyester sweatshirt for women paired with mint blazer
 Happy Sunday lovelies, hope everyone had an amazing week. So i took on a bold choice of hair color this weekend, Beyonce made me do it! I loved her gold braids and i  wanted to try something similar though not as long as hers, now i have my own version of the yonce braids!
 Still on doing things that were inspired by others, coincidentally in church today, we read a bible verse that said "The son can do nothing himself but what he seeth the Father do....." Though it has a different meaning but it can also be understood as following another's footsteps, being inspired to do things people you like/look up to have already done. Everyone likes to be a pacesetter but let's face it, most of what we do have already been done, the only thing we do is recreate and add our own versions to them, even when we invent things, someone somewhere would love to recreate it and the circle continues....

What They Wore: Selfie Season 1 Episodes 1 - 4

selfie tv show fashion
 Hello lovelies, how is your week going? For me, it's been the usual: Go to school, have boring classes, face the bad weather, go home to do lots of patient's case histories, get confused about some diagnoses and diseases, close the books, surf the net a bit, watch movies/series, get back to school work or sleep (basically in that order).
 During the weekend while i was battling with an assignment, i took a break to go through my internet updates etc and find a new show to entertain myself, then i came across this new Abc show Selfie. I read an overview online to better understand what i was about to watch and it struck me as a show that would be interesting so i decided to watch the few episodes that have been aired.
 The show follows the life of a narcissistic young lady (Eliza) who works as a pharmaceutical sales representative and is obsessed with the idea of internet fame through the use of social media platforms like instagram and twitter where she posts lots of selfies. She began to realize that internet friends/fame wasn't the same as real life and is now seeking help from co-worker Henry.
 I will rate the show as an Okay one, not great and not bad either, i don't think it would survive as a series but never say never, i might be wrong. If you are looking for some situation comedy to while away time, then you should see it but if you are looking for a more serious show then this show isn't for you. On the bright side, Eliza's lifestyle is very similar to some of the social media insanity seen in the real world currently, you can pick one or two things from Henry's marketing strategies and then there's a touch of fashion just like most of other Abc shows (but more affordable pieces). Below are some of the fashionable outfits they wore from episodes 1-4....

 Happy Sunday Lovelies, how was your weekend? Mine was a dull busy one filled with lots of school work and less resting time. Today's service was "Traditional service" where people from different African countries displayed their native attires, food, dance and drama. This is one of those Sundays in the year that people enjoy because they get to show off their tradition in dramas, food and African fashion in without looking out of place, check out photos from last year's traditional service.
 I was late *covers face* but i took some photos of some of the activities i met including some traditional and ankara outfits...enjoy!
