2017 Is the Year To Rethink Pink






Pink has been rebranded. Once a symbol of dated gender binaries, pink is now the color of powerful optimistic statements - Trump shading pussy hats, shapley, multiethnic barbie dolls, a cosmetics company that values realism over illusion
Those of us who cast aside our bubble gum pink paraphernalia the moment we grew old enough to shop for ourselves — and those of who still loved the hue but grew sick of the vaguely offensive “girly girl” associations — now have reason to reach for our rose-colored glasses.

Pink was omnipresent on the Spring 2017 runways. From toned-down pastels to electrified berry tones, pink showed up on the runways. Oftentimes it took the form of frilly, draped, sequined, satin or tulle-heavy frocks — but not always. Overall, the message was thus: Wear loads of pink and wear it however the hell you want (with an emphasis on tonal looks).






For Fall 2017, the pink trend forged on. Much like the streets, the runways were all about colorblocking




Needless to say, industry movers (of all gender identities, but for our purposes, we’re showing you the women) are down for the pink cause. Our favorite show-side sightings featured matchy-matchy mixed materials or paired hot pink with denim.

Trust us, even the most glittery pink pieces are now considered neutrals. In other words, it’s time to have some fun.

My Bad Beauty Habits





Who else has an ever lasting struggle with sticking to beauty routines/regimes. Well I’m definitely on that list. There are some major things that always hinder me from reaching my skin goals and sticking with my routines and I’m going to be highlighting them in this post. These are habits I want to work on in the nearest future and what better way to start than sharing the bad habits with you guys.





I’m sure a lot of us still do this even though we all know this is bad for our skin. I’m definitely one of the laziest people I know and breaking this habit would most likely be a hard one. You know sometimes, when you’re settled in bed and then you remember that your makeup is still on, you just have to sleep like that lol. But I have started working consciously on this and would not let it stop me from reaching them skin goals.



I honestly don’t know why I still do this but I guess it’s one of those habits that never really go away. Though I’m not a chronic nail biter but I still don’t like how my nails appear without fixing them. I have tried almost everything in the book, but somehow my hand still gets to my mouth. The only thing that seems to stop me is when my nails are fixed because I don’t want to ruin my mani.




It’s very obvious that makeup brushes need to be cleaned due to the fact that they can easily pick up dirt and bacteria which wouldn’t help your skin. But No, I still continue to forget to do this seemingly important makeup ritual.







 It took me a while to realize makeup could expire. I know, kind of embarrassing but It is what it is. I knew that makeup products obviously could not be used forever but I did not know there was a formal date, you know like in food products and stuff. When I found out, I immediately when to clean out my makeup stash and I had close to zero makeup products left.
Thank you for reading this post. We all have habits that hinder us from our beauty routines and skin goals. These are some of mine, do let me know in the comments section what yours are or If we have any bad habit in common!

Accessorize Right; Make a Statement!



Fashion and trends are dynamic and ever changing. Keeping up with trends can be exhausting; but then anything worthwhile requires constant attention! The world of fashion is vast and encompasses a large number of big and small elements that together make up for it. Most people consider clothes to be the most important element, forgetting the basic fact that good clothes together cannot make a complete outfit. Yes, there’s a difference between clothing and an outfit.

Accessories are a big and significant part of an outfit. You can wear a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt but it’s the right accessories that will turn it into a stunning outfit. Jewelry, scarves, belts, handbags, watches, hats are some of the many accessories you can choose from. The most important thing is to understand how to pair the right accessories. Here are some tips for choosing accessories:

-          Accessorize for the Weather
Your accessories must be in sync with the weather. Women’s Boots on a hot sunny day are as pointless as a sun hat on a rainy day! Don’t look at what time of the year it is, look at the current weather!

-          Layering
Layering your accessories creates a stylish blend of trends. Wool gloves, with silk scarves, a statement watch… just don’t overdo it! There’s no rule that says you need to stick to only one accessory at a time. Blend them well together.

-          Basics Vs Bold
You need to create a mix between the basics and the bold accessories you combine. Handbags, belts, wallets and watches are basics where as earrings, necklaces and other jewelry are bold statement pieces. Mix in a minimal doze of both!

-          Classic Vs Trendy
There are some accessories like the good old Pearl necklace that are classic and will always be in fashion, where as some accessories are more ‘current’ and ‘today’, like gemstone bracelets… understand the difference between the two and how to pair them.

No attire is complete unless you bring in accessories and add to the overall look of the clothes. The right mix and match of accessories can transform a piece of clothing from drab to glam. Also, a single change of accessories like stud to chandelier earrings can transform a dress from work wear to party wear! It’s all a game of accessories and once you ace this simple trick, you’ll be a diva all the time!

Never Enough Handbags!

Handbags, purses and wallets; three things that we women never seem to have enough of! We all need our different handbags for different purposes; there’s one for regular use, one for shopping, one for a ladies’ night, one for travelling and several more for different occasions. But, hang on! No one’s cribbing and YES there are more reasons and NO REASONS to buy more, stock more and flaunt mo

Handbag trends come and go, they change faster than one can even say the word itself! When choosing a handbag, it is necessary to check the material, size, space and pockets according to the specific need in mind, if any! Let’s take a look at the top 3 ‘essentials’

1. The Daily Use Handbag
 Fringe Handbag


Whether or not you are a working woman, everyone has errands to do. If you go to office, you need a spacious daily use handbag with enough pockets to keep your wallet, umbrella, , makeup, keys, tissues… and a lot more! There need to be segregated compartments for items and you need to divide everything according to frequency of use. Make sure it has a small pocket on the outside to keep all the things you need from time to time, to avoid opening the entire bag. Choose a material that can withstand changing weather and also be sturdy to carry load. Also, choose dark colors to avoid it getting dirty!

2. Crossbody Handbags




If you travel around with a lot of stuff, a Crossbody handbag is more convenient. It spreads the weight and you won’t complain of paining shoulders and neck. It’s all the more convenient if you are using public transport and need to be on your toes from here to there and everywhere. Crossbody handbags are a great travel companion and usually have enough space for all your needs.

3. Clutches and Evening Bags



Yes, these are really an essential. You don’t want to be at a party in your fine dress and made up hair with a large, heavy bag weighing you down. For evenings choose feminine, bright and vivacious clutches and evening bags that have just enough room for your phone, money and yes the lipstick! You can opt for delicate fabrics and light materials for it.

There is no limit, and 3 is definitely not a limit. Start with these 3 and add to your glorious collection of handbags, wallets and purses. One for each day; what do you think ladies?
