Trend spotting : Denim on Denim

To me, denim is a huge fashion tool, it is one of those items you put in your closet, that you are never afraid to invest in because it never goes out of style, it gets “rebranded” but never out.

Denim started since the 18th Century, it was first made in only the blue with indigo dye colour (still my favorite denim colour any day though) but now Yea, it comes in Colours, shades, cuts… I never get enough of denim.

Now we have the stonewashed, faded, stretched, ripped, coloured etc that makes it a delightsome fashion item.

And what’s better than one????? Two. Lol

Can we ever forget the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake jean couple look in the 2001 American Music Awards? No we can’t .

Rihanna has been spotted time and time again with the denim on denim look.This trend is quite interesting because you get to be creative about it… There is really no said rule besides my rule, which is “don’t overdo it”.

Yes, I spotted mine too in the 7th picture… *tongue out*
The key to rocking this look is being able to make it yours, so when next you want to go “all denim” remember to have fun with it. Make it simple and fun.

Below are some of the looks, and ways to rock the denim on denim look.
Happy viewing

My French tips mani

Let’s talk nails…

Nails just have a way of getting the attention (immediately after a girl’s face) little wonder the ladies don’t play with their nail appointments. Some nails can be pretty tasteless, some slightly overdone but the French tips and the red nails have been here and I don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon.
I love it when I see a girl with good nails, it just simply tells a lot about her. Even though most of us have it busy, we should take time out to keep them neat. There’s nothing wrong in going natural/ bare.
Personally, I love me some red nails, but that gets boring after some time. So I try to spice it up.

I don’t really do a lot of salon nail fixing unless really necessary, I have fun with my ‘at-home’ nail painting even though there’s so little I can do on nail designs, it’s easier and more economical if I do need to change my nails every two-three days. Also I have the worlds softest nails (there should be a world record for that cos I sure would win) so whenever I fix, it takes me up to 6 months to get my healthy looking nails back…maybe not totally worth it.

I decided to play around my nails yesterday, to do my own “local” French tips (Nigerian tip if you may lol) and please ignore the stunted nails.
For this look, I used beautyUK gift set No 3 in Urban girl (The peachy colour and the white) And milani nail treatment Glosse topcoat.

(Sorry no step by step pictures)

Hello!

I know ,I know… I even tell myself everyday that I’ll write something on this blog at least once a week… But you know, man proposes….

It gets really busy sometimes and sometimes it’s just the laziness to start the first statement… That’s whenever network decides to stabilize. I kinda have a couple of things to talk about so I’ll take them one by one. From my DIY mani to my DIY sequin purse…(I think I’m getting a hang on this DIY thingy) then other random topics, fashion trends etc. just so u know, I’m Nigerian so there might be some “African inclined/tradition infused” detail in my posts.

Great to be back.(this is the umpteenth time I would have said this). Don’t worry, we will get a knack of things soon.
