If your "go to look" is Jeans and a shirt, then one of SS17's biggest trend is the easy way to update your everyday style. You can never go wrong with a pinstriped shirt. Especially on days when you don't really feel like putting too much effort into your outfit. I for one, love shirts that I can simply throw on and get going. With Spring here, there are days when its quite warm with a breeze, therefore a pinstriped shirt would be perfect for such weather because you won't be necessarily cold.

When it comes to handbags I normally play it safe by picking a black one . Mainly because black goes with literally anything. But come on , wouldn't it be nice to have some pop of colour (Farai actually made me think twice about getting bags in different colours other than black ).In as much as I would like that , I think it really depends on what sort of colour handbag it is. Which brings me to my latest edition to my collection. I went for red mainly because its oozes confidence and pizazz.

Spring is upon us and I love the fact that I get to spruce up my wardrobe. Being of African heritage, I take pride in rocking African print clothing. I am on the hunt for some upcoming African designers to collaborate with so if you have any in mind, kindly let me know. I was lucky enough to have this gorgeous skirt gifted to me some time last year( previous post) from M.A.DKollection. The designer , Ifiok is of Nigerian decent and her designs have a youthful vibrant feel to them. Do check out her ETSY store for a variety of pieces to pick from.

When it comes to my hair, I literally switch up constantly because I easily get bored of the same look and the other reason is simply because I can. I feel my twenties are the years I can explore with different looks .
Box braids are the quintessential hairstyle for women who need versatility. Famous people like Solange and Keke Palmer have been rocking the look too. It's clear to see that braids are popular in the black community.
Personally I love the fact that braids are low maintenance.I don't have to worry about curling or straightening my hair when I have braids in , I can wear them up or down depending on the look I am going for. I also love bold looks as seen in my choice of curly big hair and boxy braids.
Box braids is a good protective Hairstyle too. I am not a naturalist but I make sure my relaxed hair is healthy so I like to take a break from chemicals and heat . Let your hair breathe mama . A little tip I will share with you is: if you are going to go for this hair style trim your ends just before you get the braids done . I was amazed at the growth of my hair a couple of months after I took my previous braids out . Amazing if you ask me !
So if you are not yet convinced that this is the IT LOOK , hope these pictures win you over . I recently got them done so I prefer to wear them down but I will be sharing more looks on the blog . I used 6 packs of expression kenakoline hair to achieve this look.
Ever had box braids Hairstyle ?What type of braids do you go for ?

I can't believe how fast the weekend went by . One minute I was prepping for fashion week and the next minute poof it's over just like that .
Anyway, I thought I would share with you all about my trip to London Fashion Week Festival. I had the opportunity of attending one of the trend catwalk shows by Avenue 23, with front row sits . This was a huge thing because I have never been to a live catwalk of such Caliber.
Situated in central London , the H10 is a perfect spot for someone visiting the city . I had the opportunity of staying at the H10 Waterloo for 2 nights whilst I was there for London Fashion Week festival.
Highlight of the Hotel
When I travel I tend to look for exquisite places more on the contemporary side. There needs to be something eye catching about it . The highlight of the H10 Waterloo is their sky bar . The view of the London sky line -especially at night - is perfect . In fact we had a room with the city view facing the landmarks such as the shard .
Check- in was a breeze and we got complimentary drinks as we got the keys to our room . The staff were really friendly and helpful such that we felt at home instantly. Plus check out time was not till midday. You can't go wrong with that .
Initially we were not happy with the size of the room because it was a little small compared to what we saw online . So when we asked for another room , the staff were willing to offer us other options at no charge. As soon as settled in , I was happy with how comfy the bed was and the decor was clean and elegant. The only thing I would say is, I would have loved a robe and slippers but then again it isn't much of a big deal.
Hotel space /ambiance
The H10 has a Scandinavian feel to it . I love their choice of decor in the reception area as well as the hallways. Did I mention? They had a mini tv in their lifts, advertising their various hotels across the world . I thought that was quiet different as I have never noticed this sort of advertisement at any other hotel.

Satin is trending right now and bloggers are finding creative ways to incorporate satin into everyday looks. I decided to make this trend work for me by layering it with a warm sweater underneath and complimented the look with some over the knee boots.
