Wearing a MAC lipstick I got from the vault with the name that has faded out but I do those the rose-tones of this lipstick. May always reminds me of being sunny, glossy and sleek which is what I think these red lips do. How do you feel about red lips?
Tools: MAC & YSL Lipsticks
Happy New Year everybody! I am obsessed with colour and gloss in beauty. I am taking a dress for success approach because I need to explode in BUSINESS this year and what better way to start than looking the part?
Tell me what you think!
This is a snapshot of the make-up I had on the weekend. The L’Oreal eyeliner is a bit smudged but it was towards the end of the night. I went to a natural hair salon in town to get the hair done (more on that another day – it was super expensive and not that great to be honest).
How did your make-up look this weekend? Any cool new hairstyles? Let me know!
I was reading Black Enterprise and I stumbled upon this new black beauty brand called whipped run by an African-American woman called Lauren Doggett. My mouth is watering when I saw some of the following products that are available for sale on her website:
Lip cremes available from whipped (picture from the company’s website)
Normally when I read about new beauty + hair companies that are being started up, I don’t feel that fired up or interested by them but this whipped brand seems really different. I have never bought anything from whipped but just her concept of only making beauty products that are whipped from natural ingredients seems so unique and a fresh take on beauty. It’s a shame she doesn’t ship to Tanzania as I would definitely consider buying.
Looks like the beauty market is heating up with lots of new brands and companies popping up. Have you guys seen any new companies that you think deserve a mention?

I am definitely being frugal right now in my life, because there are a lot of things to pay for, but I’ve told myself when I sort out situation such as moving out and having a streamlined budget, I will treat myself.

What are you looking forward to for fashion & beauty?

Money spent to achieve the look: £0 (the blue eyeshadow was a gift from one of my best friends)
I’m currently on a strict budget in terms of beauty + fashion + hair, so I can’t spend any excess money on things which I love & want until I sort out my finances & get myself moved out of home.
This means I’ve had to get creative to look nice so I decided to add some blue to my look today with my hair.I found the flower randomly lying in the garden today!
What do you think?
1. Now this is O.G status. I love it – makes me want to start dieting and fit into a tiny bikini!
2. I love love love this magazine cover – I want all of DD’s style!
3. I love the sunglasses!
I am definitely going to incorporate more vintage looks into my style wardrobe!
