Outfit of the day

What do you do on a warm, sunny day in beautiful Antigua? Get dressed, and go for lunch. This is the outfit i donned. I’m a huge fan of florals, always put me in a happy place. The bold, colourful floral patterns, give a tropical feel. Very comfortable, as it’s not clingy, therefore you’ll stay cool all day.

Lunch with girlfriends

P1010745P1010735

It’s always fun when my girlfriends and i get together, there’s never a dull moment. I’m surrounded by beautiful, smart women who empower each other. There is nothing more distasteful than females who try to bring each other down, so i quickly run for the hills if i sense that.

We decided to do lunch and bounce ideas off of each other. Let’s just say, we are all aspiring business women, so listening to each others potential business ventures and giving our input helps tremendously.

Moral of the story is, surround yourself with like minded, positive, hardworking individuals, who will support and cheer you on.

It doesn’t hurt to be at a lovely beach restaurant either! haha. This location is Jacqui O’s Love Beach, wonderful food and scenery!

Stay beautiful!

Love,Shaunz

Weekend soft glam!

On the search for a soft, pretty glam look? Look no further, so i saw Rihanna’s Grammy makeup and i fell in love, it’s beautiful, and can be worn anywhere.What i’ve realised is that most of the makeup looks at the Grammys were soft and pretty, i guess that’s the trend right now and i’m really loving it.

This is a very easy to achieve look and is suitable for any skin tone. If you’re planning to do anything special this weekend, try this look! It’s very similar to one of my Valentine’s Day looks now you know how much of a fan i am of warm, subtle shades.

2 years natural hair anniversary

Hello friends, hope all is well with you.

January 25th marked two years since i decided to do away with the relaxers. By no means am i against anyone who wishes to relax their hair, this is a personal preference, a decision that has done a world of good to my hair.

Two years ago i got tired of transitioning so i decided to cut the relaxed hair off which was quite a substantial amount and embrace my natural, kinky, coily hair. I can’t say i wasn’t scared, but it was one of the best decisions i’ve ever made.

I’ve learned a great deal and i still am. Growing natural, healthy hair is a challenge which takes patience, dedication and lots of money (not really) that is if you’re a product junkie like myself haha. I said lots of money because i will purchase anything that says natural hair on the packaging, sometimes they work for my hair, sometimes they don’t. If they don’t work then i bin them without second thoughts. I’m getting better actually as i’ve found a few product lines that are amazing. You don’t need to spend a ton of money, i did so because i was trying to narrow down products that my hair loved and i think i’ve managed to find a few.

I’ve been obsessed with the Cantu and Cream of Nature line. I’ve been using these lines since i started my natural hair journey and i will continue to do so.

From the Cantu line my favourites are: The creamy hair lotion and the deep conditioning mask. From the Cream of Nature line: Their shampoos and conditioners, the hair milk and the strength and shine leave in conditioner. When i use gels i usually use the Eco- styler, and for oils i’m a big fan of coconut, Tea Tree and castor oil. Water is also a must in my routine.

Just to sum this up, i have had no regrets, i try to stay away from heat and dyes, i have been tempted but i haven’t yielded as yet.

If you’re transitioning, had the big chop or you’re thinking about going natural my advice to you is, take the time to learn what your hair likes and dislikes, be patient, do a lot of protective styling. Keep your hair moisturised, low manipulation is key also as you won’t be pulling and tugging your hair all the time. Trim your ends and remember to rock your hair with confidence!

Ocean inspired look!

fullsizerender-76img_4252

Hello lovelies! I know it’s cold in some parts of the world right now, so i hope you’re all keeping warm and safe. I keep saying to my friends don’t worry warmer days are ahead just to get them thinking positively!

Since some of us may not be able to dip in the ocean and enjoy all the beauty and splendour it has to offer, myself and a few other ladies (their Instagram names are on picture above) decided to bring the ocean to life in the form of makeup looks. Feel free to check them out on Instagram and Youtube.

My look depicts, the sea, the glorious little fishes and the white sand. I hope you liked this look as much as i did, i had so much fun creating it.

See how i achieved this bold and daring look, check out the tutorial on my channel. Thank you and enjoy!

Casual outfit of the day

fullsizerender-20fullsizerender-16fullsizerender-13img_3133-1

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this beautiful light i saw in the clouds, i’ve never seen anything like it, it’s almost like a rainbow wanting to form! The beauties of nature, always wows me!

fullsizerender-12

Casually comfortable and warm are the operative words, on cold days out! I tried to keep my outfit as understated as possible, considering i was just going down to the sea side to grab an ice cream, who does that on a cold day? haha. Did i mention i was absolutely bare faced? Not a stitch of makeup, sometimes you have to let your skin breathe a little bit!

Here’s the breakdown of my outfit-

The jumper top is from H&M, i especially love it because it’s written quite big and bold unavailable, insert smiley face! This jumper top can be dressed up or down, depending on the look you’re going for.

My jeans were a steal from TK Maxx, only £12.99. They are very comfortable and of great quality. They are almost like ankle grazers, except just a tad bit longer. Just plain and simple, no rips, holes or distressed details and that’s what i liked about them. They can be worn to work, school or any other occasion which doesn’t require you being dressed up to the T.

My jacket is an oldie but favourite of mine, it’s lined with a little bit of faux fur and on the top of the sleeves, it has a bit of faux leather , so that will definitely keep me warm on colder days. This was purchased at Tk Maxx, i believe two or three years ago and it is still in immaculate condition. It’s from BCBG generation.

Now we’ve come down to the best part of the outfit, the boots. These patent ankle boots with gold zippers at the front, will surely take your outfit from 0-100! I love them, they are trendy at the moment. In terms of comfort they aren’t bad at all, i managed to walk around in them just fine. They might feel a little restricting at first but once your feet get a hang of them, you’ll be stepping and strutting away. They are my favourites for this season, and I got them from Public Desire.

Sunglasses are Dolce & Gabbana, Choker Pull&Bear and my little wallet TK Maxx.

Thank you very much for indulging me, have a great day.
