Beauty Muse: Amber Rose

Amber Rose may not be the regular definition of a beauty, but she is a true beauty. I love the fact that she looks so different. You can easily spot her in a group. She stands out from the rest in a beautiful way.

I have followed Amber’s career since her days with Kanye West. I remember seeing them together on the red carpet, and wondering who the bald blonde was. I have been intrigued since then. I may not agree with her way of life, who she dates, half of what she tweets or posts on Instagram but her sense of humour is infectious. Laughter is the best medicine and she comes across as a very happy, carefree woman, which speaks volume. This woman’s beauty is goals for me.

I love Amber Rose‘s flawless skin. I guess part of it may be due to genetics but I always wondered what her skincare routine would look like, so I went digging. Here are some of her skincare secrets:

I’ve always been good about moisturizing. Every morning and every night, everyday. What I do, and this sounds kind of weird, but I buy these pint-size containers of raw African shea butter from street vendors, I microwave it, and after I shower, I rub it everywhere. Even on my scalp and face. Nothing works better. And it’s cheap!

When asked what skincare regimen was:

Just Dove soap. I’ve never really tried anything else. I’ve always felt that when you use too many products or try too many new things, you’re just piling a lot of unnatural, unnecessary stress on your face. I try to keep it simple.

Just Dove soap? I guess her beautiful skin is all down to genetics pretty much.

I am a fan of Amber. I admire her beautiful looks and carefree spirit.

Models Cover ELLE UK August 2016 Issue

ELLE UK August 2016

It is the season of group models on magazine covers and I am loving it so much. On ELLE UK August 2016 issue, we have 4 beautiful models gracing the cover; Ysaunny Brito, Bhumika Arora, Sofie Hemmet, and Maggi Jablonski, and they are all rocking Prada pieces. This cover was shot by photographer Kai Z Feng for ELLE.

I like the fact that these ladies are models on the rise and not supermodels. I like to see new, fresh faces on the cover of a magazine every now and again. I also like the fact this cover is the reader’s choice cover. This is actually ELLE’s first ever group cover shot featuring new models. The whole idea behind the cover is to celebrate fashion’s brave new spirit, and the power in being YOU. I like it.

I really like this cover. I like the fact that various races are featured on it. The beautiful faces are strong and fierce and it looks excellently. This here right is one of my favourite ELLE UK covers till date.F

I am interested in the features on the cover as well especially ‘GET NAKED – The right nude lipstick for you’. That sounds like an article I need to read after my last encounter with a nude lipstick. I am still in the pursuit of a nude lipstick that will look good on me. The ‘GET HIGH – The heel is back’ also sounds like an interesting fashion article.

I am hoping to grab a copy of this issue before it goes off the newsstands. I am quite behind on my reading this month. I am currently reading Anne Frank’s Diary – The Diary of a Young Girl, but once I am done with that, I will play catch up on the others.

What are your thoughts on this August cover? Do you like it? Have you read the issue?

Drop me a comment, lets chat.

Thanks for reading and commenting xo

 

 

 

 

OOTD: Styling Shades of Blue

Shades of Blue Image

Blue is one of my favourite colours ever. There is something so cool about the colour blue. I can’t quite explain my love for the colour but I am so in love with it. There is something clean and clear about the colour blue. Many pieces and accessories in my wardrobe are blue in colour and I like it that way but I have to start to reduce the amount of blue items I do have for the sake of variety and options.. In these photos, I also have a few shades of blue in the background. Can you spot them? Lol..

I find blue so easy to style, and that is 1 reason why I wear a lot of it. Here are 5 ways you could style your blue pieces and accessories this summer:

 

Pair with White

You can pair your blue piece with white like I did in this outfit post. A blue top paired with a white skirt or pants always look good.

 

Add Pair

Or you can team up your blue piece with black for a better contrast. Denim paired with black always looks spot on.

 

Wear Stripes

Summer fashion is all about stripes, and the colour blue always looks amazing when paired with stripes. So go for it! You can draw inspiration from my outfit here.

Matchy Matchy

You can always go matchy matchy with blue. Denim on denim always looks fabulous. Just add some black pumps and you are good to go.

 

Prints

Blue always looks good paired with prints. Blue prints on a white base looks effortlessly chic.
