Beauty Muse – Solange

The stylish Solange is not only a Style Icon, she is also a Beauty Muse. This woman is always steps ahead of any fashion or beauty trend. She is a force to reckon with in the fashion and beauty industry. She is a trendsetter and my Muse.


I love the fact that Solange is so confident, confident enough to play with her looks and she nails every look. She inspires me to step outside my comfort zone and try various beauty products and looks. She is the coolest kid on the block.



I love the fact that she does not have the regular next door beauty, she dared to be different and she stands out from the rest. She has the most beautiful, and natural hair I have ever seen and she knows it. Solange is a breath of fresh air.

Here is what she told Elle about skin and hair care routine:

“I use a really great line; it’s called Epicuren. I had breakouts and I did everything you could think of and then I just stopped doing everything and then my skin just started getting better and better. So, I do that, and I’m really adamant about my sleep that’s the one thing, if you ask anyone who knows me I’m like I must have 10 hours of sleep.

Lately I’ve been really relying on coconut oil. I actually just go to the grocery store and buy organic coconut oil and put it on before, during, and after I shampoo. I let it air dry. Sometimes I blow it out with low heat. Sometimes I’ll twist it and take out the twists the next day.”


Coconut Oil is apparently the holy grail of beauty and hair so I am looking forward to trying out a sample I have recently received. Maybe I can get my hair to grow as long and shine like Solange’s.

What do you think of Solange as a Beauty Muse?




Fashion Criminal: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is one creative woman I admire. Her voice is so out of this world and I love most of her songs but her fashion sense and personal style is a No-No. Lady Gaga dresses up like a woman in her 40s, I always have to remind myself that she is only 29 years old. This Fashion Criminal goes for extreme, crazy pieces and accessories; and she looks hideous in them.Herself and my previous Fashion Criminal; Charly Boy have one thing in common, they are both so WEIRD.


I think Lady Gaga dresses CRAZY deliberately, just to stand out but she can stand out and look impeccable.  Just look at the likes of Solange, Kate Moss, Janelle Monae and other stylish celebrities. These ladies stand out from the pack for their fabulous signature styles. Lady Gaga can be her crazy self but still look good. She can have a crazy personality but still NORMAL.


Lady Gaga’s fashion sense makes her appear a lot older than her age, she needs to tone the crazy outfits and dress up in youthful, stylish pieces and accessories that will complement her body shape and natural colouring. I will like to see her in normal outfits like what she has on in the first picture above. That is the sanest outfit I have seen Lady Gaga in.
