The creative director of the new shoe line – Chelsea Santry told Footwear –

The time is different. [Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen] were the first to do it, but these girls take it to a whole other level with social media and how they market themselves. Their accounts are so them. Nothing is contrived about it. When you look at how big they are and their reach, it’s refreshing to believe it’s actually, genuinely coming from them.

#ThePerfectBeachBody

Its July, summer is here and that means one thing – Holidays. With the holiday season in full swing, many are jetting off to beaches and other luxurious places to relax and unwind, and with some many women walking around looking fit in their bikinis and bodysuits, the pressure is on for every woman to have the Perfect Beach Body this summer. Many are coughing out as much as £300 in preparation for the summer holidays. Can you imagine that?

An online voucher code website – My Voucher Codes recently carried a survey that revealed that 60% of 18 – 24-year-old women felt under pressure to achieve the #PerfectBeachBody. The survey was answered by over a 1000 women aged over 18, and the results were as follows:

  1. The most popular beauty preparation women have for their summer holidays is waxing including eyebrows, legs and bikini area (59%), and manicure and pedicure (54%).
  2. A tummy tuck was the most popular choice for women looking to get their body in shape for summer.
  3. Joining a gym, a diet club and a fitness class were the most popular ways to get fit and healthy for the summer.

Mark Pearson, the founder of My Voucher Codes said:

“It’s amazing how much beauty treatments can cost for holiday prep, add this to the cost of a holiday and people can end up spending a fortune before that go. And that is not taking into account, gym membership, and fad diets or class’s people take to get their beach body. What is shocking though is the surgery women would consider having to get a beach body. There is so much pressure on women to have the perfect body, I can understand why some women resort to such extremes to get it.”

Check out the full results of the My Voucher Codes survey .

Personally, I don’t quite understand this whole perfect beach body craze. I can’t imagine coughing out anything close to £300 to achieve a perfect beach body, I rather spend that money on some cool accessories and pieces. However, I am more conscious of my legs during summer because I like showing off some skin, so I wax my legs more regularly in the summer months. Walking about in a mini skirt with hairy legs won’t be a pleasant sight, but that is all I do differently in the summer. Then again, I am not your average young woman. I hardly get pressured into doing anything. I make my own rules.

Do you feel pressured to have the perfect beach body during summer? Drop me comment, let’s chat. Thanks for reading.

 

 

 

 

Celebrity Style: Caitlyn Jenner’s Looks

I have been keeping up with Caitlyn Jenner’s style for sometime now and I can say I am well impressed. Girl got style. She could be a style icon in a couple of years. Do you agree?

The Style Icon: Donatella Versace

All hail the Queen of Fashion – Donatella Versace. This 60-year-old Italian fashion mogul is the style icon for the week. If you know anything about fashion, you will know Donatella. This woman is the brain behind the famous Versace label.

If I have to mention 10 women doing their thing in the fashion industry, Donatella Versace will definitely be on that list. This woman eats, drinks and breathes fashion. Her designs are amazing, she knows what looks great on her body and she has the personality to pull it off. I love her.

Donatella’s personal style is naturally very Versace, it oozes glamour, rock and roll, chic and sex. This woman is not afraid to be the center of attention. She favours black and white over other colours and you will never catch her wearing flats; she has vowed never to give up her heels, she loves her gold jewellery and her long platinum blonde hair is her signature look.

‘My style is not that big, I wear heels, tight pants and I wear diamonds,’ she revealed at the 2013 Vogue festival. She recently added what her clothes reveal about her: ‘They reflect me in the sense of a modern woman, probably. But I have a very special body type: I’m not tall… I try to convey this through my clothes: Be determined. Fight for what you believe, don’t be afraid, and get ready to be viewed by critics.

Donatella Versace is the ultimate style icon.Do you agree? Sound off in the comment section pls. Thanks for reading.

Team Natural vs Team Non – Natural

Lately, there has been so much tension among women of colour over their hair choices. There is a group that says no to relaxers and rather rock their natural fro, there is a group that says no to weaves but yes to relaxers and wigs, there is a team that says yes to relaxers, wigs, weaves and all.  These differences in hair choices have divided the black women community so bad, some women have resulted to stalking and bullying anyone who doesn’t agree with their personal hair choices. I find this whole hair drama bizarre, like it should not even be an issue.

For me personally, I don’t see anything wrong with any of these choices. I believe every woman should be free to decide how she will like to wear her hair. I am a team non-natural all the way and I have always been. I love my Dr Miracle relaxer, my lace wigs and brazillian hair and the likes too much to go natural. Every black woman should be free to decide on how she wants to manage her hair and I don’t understand where the tension comes from. I know there is a lot of competition among the black women folk and everyone wants to be seen as doing the ‘right’ thing but the beef is all unnecessary in my opinion. I love seeing natural fros on women. I love the kinky look especially on little girls. I also love beautiful wigs and weaves and I just prefer them to natural fros…….

Can’t we all agree to disagree on this? At the end of the day it is still just HAIR and what we should be striving as black women to achieve is having healthy hair. We are not our HAIR, our hair does not make us who we are. It is just an extension of ourselves. Let us stop defining ourselves by how we choose to wear our hair.

What do you think of the whole team natural vs team non-natural drama?

Beauty Muse – Yaya Dacosta

I am sure you all can remember the beautiful and outspoken Yaya Dacosta from the American’s Next Top Model, cycle three. Well I can. She is now a very successful actress and fashion model, and she is our beauty muse of week.

This woman is the truth. I love her. She has a flawless skin, beautiful eyes, amazing smile, and lovely, natural curly hair. Her hair has never been relaxed. Can you imagine that? I wish I had her hair. It’s gorgeous.

Yaya-DaCosta

Here is the secret to her beautiful face:

“Happiness is the bomb cosmetic! When I’m smiling, sometimes I’m giving thanks for all the things I have, rather than worrying about the things I don’t. Or I’m remembering how much I’ve grown in the past decade, year, or even a day – instead of beating myself up about my shortcomings. I’m replaying some silly joke my younger brother told me, or basking in the light of my older brother as he looks upon me from the spirit-world. I try to make my mood uplifting and peaceful then watch the world around me reflect that mood.

Women have been conditioned to dislike ourselves, to compete with each other and ignore the beauty in other women. We often feel we ourselves are not enough. This psychology of ‘lack’ is a source of unhappiness. Always remember, joy and peace actually look good on us! Just like we choose whether or not to where mascara, we can choose happiness.

We can simply be joyful, inspire those around us to be more joyful, and then let the domino effect begin!

The answer is JOY.”

I agree with her. Happiness is definitely the greatest cosmetic.

I think Yaya Dacosta looks a lot like Whitney Houston. Do you agree?

What do you think of her as a Beauty Muse?
