5 REASONS WHY I LOVE BLOGGING

Hello lovelies and hope the week has been great to you so far. So what I’m wearing today on the blog, the jumpsuit, color block Sweater, Geometric sunglasses and Baseball hat are from Zaful. I didn’t even know the whole outfit was going to come out this good and even better with the location. That pair of glasses is the best in my collection so cool, stylish and gorgeous, if you aren't new here then you already know my love for them shades is real. So lecture was canceled that day and what do I do? turn the day into a photo shoot day.
Anyway, back to the main topic for today. If you are a blogger, why do you love blogging?

THE LAZY GIRL COLLEGE OUTFIT

 If you can relate, you can relate. Not every day slay day to the Uni. There are times when you just want to be comfortable especially when the cold season starts approaching. Today on the site I’ve put together a typical lazy girl outfit a few or even majority of us can relate to, it might be to the Uni, running errands or just a casual day. Being that I’m still in the university and this look was taken after lectures, it justifies the title.

5 WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR BLOG TRAFFIC

Welcome to the blog guys. Today I’m going to be sharing with you 5 ways to increase your blog traffic, the site is now a year old and I choose not to call myself a newbie blogger anymore, because I’ve learnt a lot about blogging (still learning everyday though) and today I’ve decided to share these tips that helped me improve my blog traffic. Any serious blogger will strive to get traffic and engagement on their site because it just shows how well they are doing in the blogosphere and also one of the keys to getting potential advertisers, partnerships, sponsors and so on. This topic sounds so cliché and a lot of bloggers have talked about it but you can never get enough knowledge on this, why? Because the blogosphere is divided into different Niches and even Sub Niches, what works for a style blogger may not necessarily work for a beauty blogger so we need to keep expanding on this topic.

SUMMER DAYS ARE OVER

Happy New Month everyone I pray this month is filled with growth, blessings, love, success and good health. Sad how summer is over already and I didn’t quite enjoy it the way I wanted to. We are back to the extreme cold, well for now it does fluctuate, serving us a bit warmth some days and other days pure extreme cold which is going to make blogging a little difficult and limiting for me.

HOW TO MAKE A BODY-CON DRESS WORK FOR YOU

Hello Lovelies! Doing well, I assume. We are discussing body-con dresses on the site today. Got mine from Rosegal.com  I know some ladies out there shy away from body-con dresses for some reasons and I feel they are thus  
1. It draws  unwanted attention  2. It too alluring  3. Lack of confidence to just pull it off 4. Body conscious.
 Me being slim I was just not confident enough to pull it off because I always felt like they are for the curvy ladies. Now that I’m a style blogger, I’ve decided to try some fashion risk for the blog and I’m here to say it’s not what you wear but indeed how you wear it. Sometimes society just make a certain type of rule when it comes to fashion for example,

PULLING OFF AN OVERALL POLKA DOT OUTFIT

Have you ever tried pulling off an overall polka dot outfit? Risky right? Yeah this is actually my first time wearing this, I decided to try it but working with just one color, black and white. Pulling off this ensemble works well when it’s dressed down, just like wearing print on print, you don’t do too much. I’ve accessorized with just my yellow purse, pumps and necklace from Happiness Boutique, You can get 10% Discount for orders over 19 euros, just simply put thestylefanatic at checkout. Do you think you can pull it off? Do check out my Polished Print Outfit similar to this post. It is risky wearing this ensemble and even crazy trying to over accessorize. Anyways, I hope you like how this outfit turned out.

TSF SPEAKS || CONSTANT PROGRESSION IS FAR VALUABLE THAN CONSTANT PERFECTION

Sometimes we are so focused on what other people are doing that we lose sight and true meaning of the purpose of why we are doing the things we love doing. If blogging has thought me anything meaningful is that constant progression is far valuable than constant perfection. I remember when I started blogging, I tried to conform to what other top bloggers were doing as I saw their work as perfection but was later dissatisfied with the content I was putting out because to me it never screamed originality. So, what do I do?

Firstly, we decided to do a photo shoot wearing our native wear from Africa (wait on that one ‘coz trust me you wouldn’t want to miss it) and I also wanted us to go for something casual and then this happened.

BLOGIVERSARY || THE STYLE FANATIC IS ONE!

 Isn’t it unreal how time flies, I remember this day exactly one year ago, I hit publish on my very first post. I was excited at the same time nervous. I was thinking to myself who is going to read, view or even comment. Fast forward to now that was nothing to worry about. I’m really blessed by my audience, those who just stop by, those who share my post, does who comment and those who give me ideas and try to improve my content by sending messages. I appreciate you all really. I remember it took me 30mins to figure out a blog name, I had more than 15 listed on a paper unsure of which one to go for until I wrote the very last one, sent it to my sister to give her input on it and to cut the long story short. After some doubts and some encouragements The Style Fanatic was launched on this very day. I may not have a lot of followers but the few I have are really active and I love you all for that.

STYLISH PRINTED SKIRT

 Welcome back Ladies and my few Gents; guess we are all doing fine. I got this high waist printed skirt from Zaful but unfortunately it’s sold out.

So, I finally decided to pair it with my red dress, tucked it into the skirt, which looks like a blouse, added a few accessories here and there and finally opted for my red and white sandal heels.

FEMININE PREPPY LOOK
