• Full Glam Makeup | Trust the process

    “I didn’t choose the glam life, the glam life chose me” WWARNING! not suitable for readers who hate makeup If you love makeup and you love this look and want to see my glam process and the products I use? I suggest you keep reading then. Usually when I do clients makeup I get the strange look half way through like what are you doing to my face, even when I do my own makeup and someone walks in half way through my baking process, yes I said baking. I get it, it doesn’t make sense, but its all about the process. Applying makeup is not opening a small little…

  • Why do I Blog | 2018

    “Great things never come from comfort zones” I knew that while I was studying that Instagram was not a big enough platform to show my creative ideas and crazy beauty tips on, and most of the time none of the pictures fit my theme on Instagram. (The struggle is real). I really wanted to find a place where I can share my “black and white closet, and colourful mind”, I knew for a fact it was not going to be youtube, not for now but who knows maybe in the future, I mean “reads quote in blog post” practice what you preach! The past two years has been great and…

  • Winter Editorial | #1

    “Always dress like it’s the best day of your life” So it’s getting cold outside and its time to start talking about winter fashion. Winter fashion is my favourite, I guess thats because I don’t like wearing floral dresses and sandals! As much as we want to stay in bed and wear comfy oversized sweaters we need to brave the cold and dress warm but well and head on out. You may ask me how do I stay warm and fashionable at the same time this winter? I will be sharing with you some winter style tips, this is the first editorial and you will see more coming soon.

A Fanny pack or in other words a bum bag is a little pouch worn around the waist, this was a popular trend back in the 1990s, and now its back again. Designer fanny packs from Alexander Wang to Gucci as well as Balenciaga can be seen all over. Runway Street Stylesbyyolandi I say BRING IT BACK! If you have ever judged someone for wearing a fanny pack i guess now is the time to apologise. I absolutely love it, it’s so comfortable to wear and it looks very edgy. I got mine from…

  • Fashion Police | Grammys 2018

    “It is not about standing out, but being remembered” Can we talk about the Grammys fashion? When you think it can’t get any better, it does. I asked on Instagram, yaaasss or hell No, and here is the results and my personal opinion. Before I turn into the fashion police, let me just say its is just my personal opinion, and it was so much fun to see what my instagram followers thought of the red carpet fashion at the Grammys.

  • What’s in my bag? | 2018

    “Life is short. Buy the bag” Ever wondered what people carry around in their bags? Wel I do? From a small little clutch bag to a backpack, what is in there? When I first started watching youtube videos my favourite thing to watch was the “What’s in my bag” videos, I love how honest some girls were, because at the end of the day we all have some stuff in there that should not be there, for example food crumbs, sorry not sorry.  I have always been fascinated by what woman would never leave the house without, especially celebrities. So in this blog post I will be sharing with you…

  • 3rd Year Range | Fashion Design

    You must do the things you think you cannot do. – Eleanor Roosevelt It’s that time of the year, the fashion show is around the corner. As a third year fashion design student at NMU we are required to design and make 8 garments for our graduate fashion show held on the 11th of November 2017. We had to choose a book as inspiration, any book, read the book and then find your inspiration from that. When you have found your inspiration the brainstorming starts, and I designed 8 garments based on the inspiration from a book I read, and designed and made it from scratch. The book I chose is…

  • Loving myself without makeup | Beauty

    “Beauty is being comfortable in your own skin” I remember my first time playing around with makeup. I got caught up in the idea that beauty is that girl on the cover of the magazine with the perfect contoured cheekbones and perfect brows and perfect full lips. Note that I am using the word perfect. Who said that, that is perfect? This is where the problem begins, it is no longer about what you love but rather the fact that you need makeup to be “perfect” or complete. I tried to make myself look like those “perfect” girls and that forced me to wear makeup almost everyday, I even wore…

  • Suspenders| Bring it back Or make it stop

    “I say, dress to please yourself, listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says “Here i am today” – Iris Apfel Should we make it stop or bring it back? Read to find out. My first reaction to suspenders was a definitive MAKE IT STOP, but after seeing a very stylish guy wear suspenders and making it look incredible as well as seeing a fashionable female rocking suspenders with heels to work, it made me think… should we bring it back? After looking at some street style ( which is my favourite ) photo’s of woman wearing suspenders, I felt like I was missing out…
