THE DUO.

Hey guys!
So I know it’s been a while since I’ve written something for you but I’m back now and today I will be doing a young feature article on my favourite Lesotho Twins who now reside in the UK.

Nyane and Mpho Lebajoa. Born on the 31st of March. Bloggers and personally two of my style icons in my list of style icons. These two look alike in my opinion but some people might disagree with my opinion (I don’t know why…) but their styles are not very similar so I’m going to talk about them separately for a bit:
Nyane:

She was my favourite initially but lately I’ve come to equally love them. So if you know about Nyane you’ll know she stands out for not only her fashion but her striking hair colour changes as well as great makeup. At the moment her hair colour is blue, it goes from that to pink, to grey, to purple, and honestly they all look really good on her so she shouldn’t stop. Now on to her fashion, the way I would describe her style is its very girly girl and then sometimes (and a tiny bit sometimes) it would be Goth like. She almost never wears winter clothing, it’s like she always travels to the nearest summery place because she also travels a lot but that’s just my guess, I’m not saying it’s true. She also has an online store and on her insta page posts pictures where she would be wearing clothes from her store. Here are a few of my fave pictures of her (all taken from her Instagram page, @nyane):


Mpho:

Like I previously mentioned I liked Nyane just a bit more before but lately I’ve come to love Mpho just as much. I think the reason to liking her sister more was because I didn’t open myself up more to actually notice Mpho as much as her sister but once I did, started following her and looking out for her fashion I liked her just a bit more. Her fashion is more street compared to her sisters with the use of less colour and a whole lot of shades. She also travels a lot, sometimes with her sister and sometimes with friends and blogs about her travels. Here are a few of my fave pictures from her (also all taken from her Instagram page @mpholebajoa):


I’m like obsessed with these two guys and I think their fashion is really great so if after this you like them as much feel free to follow them on their Instagram pages, they frequently post so trust that you will never get bored of them!

Thank you and till next time 🙂  feel free to comment, like and follow, it will be much appreciated!

AT THE FARMERS MARKET…

Hey guys! So today I will be sharing my experience at the farmers market, my first time there and it was awesome.


So location first, the farmers market I went to with two of my friends and fellow bloggers, Lala and Samu, is in Fourways right next to Monte Casino and its every Sunday from 10am to 4pm.


I was there to do some school work but I really wished I went there just to chill and relax because guys the vibe there was too good. With only R10 entrance, the market was filled with food stalls all over the place, people selling some beautiful handmade items and clothing and a live band (which apparently is always there every Sunday).


I spoke to two lovely girls at the market, Bassi and Didi, who told me about how they would prefer the farmers market over neighbourgoods in Braam and Arts on Main in Maboneng. Although they have a similar setting they said the market is better because it’s “more outdoorsy and more chilled” and relaxing than the other two. They then went on telling me about their favourite food stall, both being anything with Chinese food and how they won a “shot of tequila from guessing a song played by the live band there”.


A lot of great fashion was seen at the market even though you go there just to chill and relax. So it’s definitely a great place to come and show off some of the great pieces in your wardrobe.


So guys I’m definitely going there again, next time just to chill and enjoy the day. I suggest you guys check it out if you are looking for a place where you can put on your favourite outfit, get some good food and chilled vibes.

Until next time guys! 🙂

MINI LOOKBOOK – fave new pants :)

Hey guys!

So today I will be sharing a few pics on how I styled my fave pants which I bought at Woolies. I’ve been looking for pants likes these and I got so excited when I saw them. My mom even approved and she usually doesn’t vibe with me on my clothing choices.

I will just be showing one look and just tell you about how you can style it in other ways.

 

So here I paired the pants with a basic tee and a jean jacket with my vans. I was just going for a casual look which I can rock at school or just any other place where it’s just chilled vibes. For a more formal look you can pair it with a button down shirt and some brogues or heels and a coat, turn it into an evening look or just for going to an even where you are required to dress up. Since its winter you can trade the shirts for a turtleneck. I always wear these pants with stockings because I just like it like that but you really don’t have to do that, they look good with or without them.

So yeah guys like I said I was excited for these pants and so I just had to do a blog post about them. Do Comment, like and share and tell me what you guys think.

Thank you… 🙂

RUNWAY 2 REALITY…

Hey guys, so today I will be doing a little feature on a fellow blogger. Her name is Samu and you’ll find out the reasons why I’ve chosen to feature her on my blog.

IMG_2698

Her blog is about sharing with her audience all the latest trends that are in the fashion and beauty world as well as advising them how to incorporate them in their own lives. I had a little interview with her where she shared her love of fashion and beauty as well as other things she has going on besides the blog.

During our interview – it was like a mini interview by the way – she spoke about a little difficulty balancing content from switching to beauty then fashion, saying that” the fashion industry might be popping with a lot more trends in one season” so she would have to focus more on that side but she does tries to keep the content balanced for her readers so they receive that full package she promised when launching her blog. The latest trend she talks about is the different denims that people are rocking at the moment, I say it’s a must read.

We moved on to her style where I asked about her style icon and her style inspirations. As she herself is an edgy girl and puts edge in her styling she told me that her style icon is India Love, her own words being, “she wears whatever she wants and always adds edge to her outfits”. Her style personally, is also styling with an edgy taste to it. Her style is mixed with dressing like a school girl -high waisted skirts, long socks – with a bit of grunge to it but she does also tell me that she can move from that to a totally different style meaning that she has no set style. Its fashion after all, a girl can change her mind and she says fashion was her first love so its allowed.

Besides her blog she told me about another project she has going on, she told us about interning for CollegeFashionista. I’ll just put what she told us about this in her exact words, “CollegeFashionista is basically a large community of college students who are fashion forward, and love to produce content about not only fashion, but beauty and lifestyle as well.” Her job is to write content for them about fashion she spots at our campus, LISOF, and in return she gets guidance on writing, photography and social media skills. I have to say it’s necessary and needed for the industry we are trying to venture in.

Her blog is amazing so far guys, I advise yall to go check it out, also check her out on the gram she also posts from time to time when she has written an article for CollegeFashionista!

AN UNCONVENTIONAL RUNWAY

Hey Guys.

So Last week my group of girls and I attended an event by Kulture Kollective and I will be telling you guys a bit about my experience.

It was a fashion show showing collections from GALXBOY, The Threaded Man and Prime Obsession.

What a great night it was! But it started off on a rocky (yet funny) note. All I’ll say about that is that getting complimentary tickets is fun guys but attending an event where you could only get in if they found your name on a guest list and yours was surprisingly not there when you know very well it should be, is a little bit awkward. But all was well in the end and we got in 🙂

Now for a quick question? What do you call an event that comes with a complimentary drink, good food, great fashion and great company? AN AMAZING ONE! The Kulture Kollective fashion show came with all that and just a bit more and it definitely was a night to remember.

The night started off with guests mingling for some time, I have to be honest that took so long that I even thought the show was happening already and people just didn’t know it started. But eventually guests were moved into a separate ‘room’ where the fashion show started. The three collections I mentioned earlier where then showcased one after the other. The clothes were too good guys, the runway was different and the models were clearly having a great time up on it.

Unfortunately I couldn’t get enough pictures from the show, the few I got were from Kulture Kollectives instagram page (@kulturekollective).

Once again it was fun guys and if you happened to be there then you would understand what I’m talking about. I could go on and on about the entire event but I feel like this post is already just a bit too long.

So till next time guys! 🙂
