Two Toned Tinz

Happy new month my lovely lovely readers and happy Monday!!
 I can't believe this year is almost over; I'm currently working hard, studying for my finals and hoping for the semester to be over soon.
So bear with me cause I know I've been slacking lol

This look might be a little "too much" for some of you
I've been loving leopard prints for the longest and i'm not surprised it's trending this season!
I wanted to take it to an "ashi" level by spicing up the print but in two different colors; I did something similar to this sometime ago check it out HERE
I love my peplum belt, it is such a staple accessory for my wardrobe and I love the fact i can switch up any look with a touch of this belt to it :)
One key thing about matching clothing with the same prints together would be to make sure the colors compliment themselves well e.g pair bolds with neutrals to tone down the loudness of the prints and also make sure the size of the prints are similar to one another.
I personally can't stand two of the same prints in different sizes paired together

Top:  love this HERE and HERE
Skirt:  Similar HERE AND HERE
Shoes:  ZARA similar and cheaper HERE and HERE

"paparazzi go away" lol
it was so much fun taking these pics with my siblings. shout out to Abbot and Freda flow for the wonderful pictures :)

Undefeated Mustard

Hellloooooo beautiful people!!!
I've been postponing a lot of things due to school work, I refuse to let stress get the best of me (the Devil is a liar)
On the bright side, I'm glad the semester is almost over.
This is just a quick outfit from Sunday, remember the earrings from my last "thrift & gist" post I adore them so much.
I decided to give off a dress effect with this top and skirt and I pulled it off well, paired it with a blazer I thrifted as well and viola! It can be pulled for business or casual look
Love all these colors for fall, they work so well and look good with my skin tone (very important lol).
Top: f21, skirt & shoes: Zara
 Blazer: thrifted, bag: Hautelook, Watch: MK

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week
Appreciate all the wonderful and kind comments from everyone of you; It makes me smile always
Lots of love!!

If I "Stripe" you!


 Helloooooo! Happy Sunday my wonderful Blogfam Hope your weekend is going fantastic?

Its funny how different states are getting cold and Texas is still souring high in 80 degrees
I've been loving a bunch of stuffs from forever 21, never really been much of their fan because of the quality and popularity of most clothes but I had too after drooling on the wonderful new pieces I've been seeing from them.
I am indeed impressed, the website does the clothes no justice in regards to the colors because they are more vibrant in person.

Did you notice it was a peplum belt? I love itttttttt (super versatile)
Peplum is very forgiving and you can't go wrong with it.
I wore it with my American apparel cropped top (previously worn HERE) to conceal the mid rib and it did just fine!

My First Skydiving Experience/video

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend?
Last 2 weeks were amazing for me, it was my birthday week (thanks for the wonderful wishes) and I got to do a lot of things; 
I got to skydive for the first time ever and those of you on my facebook or instagram must have probably seen the pictures but you know it wouldn't be complete if I don't share it on my blog =) 

It was an awesome experience and YES!! I might try it again (I said might lol) 
I'm I crazy? NO lol
I told my dad about it and he said "absolute madness" hahaha
How did it feel? If you've ever been on a roller coaster ride, you can definitely do this, the whole jump took under 10mins (including the take off) so it was unbelievably amazing!
I would definitely encourage y'all to take risks and be adventurous but not too adventurous, If you decide to participate in such activity, be sure your dealing with a professional company not amateurs, if your in Houston, I jumped through Skydive Spaceland, great company, very professional and their customer service was very commendable
Overall I had a blast and I hope you enjoyed my little clip I made specially for you :)
just relax and everything will be fine
Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
My Awesome instructor Ben!!! I had a blast :) thank you
Ofcourse I had to look hot before jumping lol just wear comfortable clothes 
By the time I was done, I looked like i got trapped in a swirling wind or tornadoe smh

Shout out to Omolara for being my wonderful companion or aburo like my yoruba people say lol she made my birthday one to ya!

Wish you all a fantastic weekend!

All about my hair + video post

Hey Beautiful people!
This is a long due post and after my last blog post, I got more questions about my hair/hair extensions so here it is!

So I became a "Peruvian chick" and I'm not going back
Received this hair from a company called Leo Locks sometime in June, Its a UK based hair company that provides great quality and affordable hair of all types, I started rocking it July and since then, I've had it for 3 months non stop and it's been  amazing since then!

  • Gorgeous & affordable Virgin hair with amazing texture, I've been pleased with the quality of the hair and most of all pleased with their prices, I can't stand having to buy great hair but because it has the word "virgin" or "Peruvian" attached to it, then it will be higher than my phone bill for 6 months lol, so I am impressed with their prices.

  •  Looks even better after being washed; I think the best part of having the hair was washing it and seeing the waves form back afterwards into a very beautiful pattern. 

  • Low maintenance & Beautiful long lasting curls; it's ability to hold curls and styles with little or no product blew me away, I would literally curl my hair with flat iron/curling wand and it would last for DAYS. Also it is true to length.

  • No shedding and very minimal tangling; when I tell people I've used this hair for over 2 months, they find it hard to believe it doesn't shed!  Their wefts were super strong and it didn't even require sealing.

  • Top notch customer service; when dealing with most hair companies one of the problems I face is their lack of good customer service, late replies to emails and delayed shipping but I got no problem with them, my emails were replied on time and package received on time.

  • Very fast shipping (free delivery in the UK and cheap international rates); I received this hair in 3 days after my address was sent which was very fast for international delivery
Most of all the compliments :)


The only problem I've experienced with the hair is its dryness but I use creme of nature Argan oil quite frequently to help restore moisture to it. 

How the hair looks after washed
Peruvian Virgin hair
14"24",26",28"-- wavy
Hair in its natural state
Curled using a curling iron
Peruvian virgin hair--wavy 
14", 24",26"

I always  braid the hair in a single braid before I go to sleep, it helps to keep the curls. Wrapping is a great alternative but too much work for me.

I wash the hair every 1-2 weeks with Motion's neutralizing shampoo and Organix argan oil conditioner.

Always Brushed the hair using a paddle brush and I used Creme of nature Argan oil for daily moisture and shine.
