Male vs Female buttons

Hey lovelies, 

Ever wondered why the buttons on the male shirts were places on the right and that of the ladies were placed on the left… I bet some of you didn’t even know that. 

I have always wondered why… 

During my research too it is said that the same feat applies to zippers (Ie, male on the right,  female on the left)  I’ll take note from now. πŸ˜‹

It’s true that there internet is a wealth of knowledge but… 

This one proved to me that the internet is a round about too… There were theories that just didn’t even add up to me.
After much research (and being forced to watch cat videos and YouTube links 😏) I finally chose the answer that seemed more realistic and reasonable.

Historians say,  in ancient times,  clothing held weaponry, it was easier for men to slip their hands in and pull out their guns hidden in the shirt with the dominant hand without it being caught in.

It also applies to swords,  gentlemen wore their swords on the left so it could be drawn from the right hand. And if a jacket buttoned  was on the right.. It wouldn’t be a smooth sail to get the sword. 
(I don’t believe I’m writing medieval) oh well!
As for the women,  when buttons were invented. The woman wearing the shirt wasn’t necessarily the person buttoning it… Buttoned clothes was for the wealthy.
Wealthy women back then didn’t dress themselves.
That means the maids had to button it… And it’s more convenient for  the buttons to be on the left when someone had to button it.

Understandable enough?  I took this for my answer probably cos I was tired of research. Lol
Men’s shirts have buttons on the right, women’s on the left. 


Youre welcome

All about the B-Day. 8-Feb-2018

Hi guys!!! 

This is one of those very exciting posts.

No need to guess,  I’ll spill it

 Well it’s my Birthday “belated” post….so please allow me gloat πŸ˜‚.

 It should be clear by now how well I love birthdays and how excited I get on the week of my birthday…

Scratch that, I mean the whole of February is an exciting month for me.

So let’s use the excuse of being overly excited that’s why this post is coming late.  Kapish?  Lol
I had a very exciting birthday week… It was all sunshine for me. πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒžπŸŒžπŸŒžπŸŒž.

The whole “Carnival” Started two weeks to my birthday πŸ€—πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ where I had my birthday shoot “haven’t had that in years“.. 

Oh my God, it was the awesomesttttttttt… esttttttttttesttttttttttttttt shoot.. E. V. E. R. (I’ll have a post specifically about my birthday shoot.) relazzzzzzπŸ˜‚

I worked with an amazing team,  My Gosh
From the styling,  hair,  photography,  makeup …everything. 
So about the D-Day. 

Birthday celebration started a bit late.. Talk about “fashionably late” πŸ’…πŸ˜¬. 

I truly have the weirdest grin on my face right now thinking about it. And No,  it wasn’t intentional, but who’s checking? πŸ˜‚

Birthday Girl!!! 
Had the best humans around me,  so much to eat and drink.  love, laughter and hugs and all the simple things in life.

Its amazing to see how many people will show up when you say there’s free food and cake. πŸ˜‚.

(I know a few friends that will kill me after reading this post) 


That’s me being silly.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

I’ll rephrase

  It’s amazing how many people will show up just to show you love on a day like that. It’s humbling. 

Here’s a little video I put together.  And a little bits and pieces from the day.

Wish I could call every name.. But you know your “lovely” selves. 

I am Super Grateful πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™.

Thankful for amazing people.

Well,  Happy Viewing! 

The most beautiful birthday cake πŸŽ‚ … 

Dripping chocolate by my darling Nikky Cake studio.. I didn’t get to eat my cake *sad face*

Inhale the love… Exhale gratitude… 

My face was this way throughout the night. Lol

Cake makes me smile.. Lol

So yeah,  I had all the fun in the world… And I’m even more driven than before. 

So I made a random video…

So I finally made this post. 

Well,  from this end,

Trendspotting : Graphic Tees and skirts.

I’m one of the people that had the notion that the graphic tee is blessed to go with a jean trouser or jean short… It’s just easier and simple perfection.

Times have changed, the graphic tees and the skirts are now stealing the show.. From your pencil skirt, A-Cut, maxi skirt…everything.

What excites me about this trend is how you can look tough and girly all in one outfit…depending on how you choose to accessorize it…it’s crazyyy

Now I can’t wait or experiment with this trend.

It’s time to dig out those skirts you dunno how to “play” with…

Below are some ways to rock this trend.

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
