QUEENS ARE BORN IN FEBRUARY || HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

  So this day some years ago a queen was born! Funny story, my mum told me I was almost born on leap year which she didn't want so she prayed for early labour and I was safely born on the 27th, thankful for that. Imagine waiting every 4 years to celebrate my birthday.
 I’m indeed proud of the woman I am becoming, as I see my dreams coming together one at a time and I have faith (Jeremiah 29:11) it will only get better from here. Looking back I’m really grateful and thankful for everything that has happened in my life, the good and bad, for what has come into and what has gone out of my life; I believe everything has a season and a purpose. I know deep within me I’m not where I want to be right now but I’m glad I’m not where I used to be. 
Anyways, I wish myself everything good, pure x wonderful this life has to offer, success, health x wealth, wisdom, discernment, God’s abundant favor and peace of mind. I definitely can’t wait to see what other plans God has orchestrated for me. Excuse the rumpled gown; it got rumpled transporting myself to the picture location.
Once again A Big Happy Birthday to me 'Benita James'. Oh btw if you'd be eating cake today, eat it on my behalf.
Down below are 20 important things I’ve learnt/learning in my early 20’s
      1.      Constant progression is better than constant perfection.
                     2.      Strangers are more inclined to support you than friends. You’ve to go with the flow.
                    3.      Be financially disciplined (save more money) as nothing is set in stone. Invest your time and money wisely. 
                     4.     The tougher the lesson, the bigger the BLESSINGS!..
     5.      Take every chance in life because some things happen once/for a reason.

6.      Never judge someone by the opinion of another person.
            7.   Keep putting out good, it will come back to you tenfold in unexpected ways.
8.      Be unapologetically you, Do you and do what you love. 
 9.      This sounds cliché but Trust no one or rather pay attention to who you trust.
             10.      Be discreet in order to achieve what you want for everyone who is blessed is envied.
11.      Rely on no one but God. Without God we are nothing. God's timing is perfect.
          12.      Whatever you do, always think about the future (there could be repercussions)
13.      Forgive but never forget the lessons it taught you.
         14.      Don’t be ashamed to struggle to get what you want, nothing is handed freely.
15.      Never allow waiting be a habit. Live your dreams and take healthy risks.
                     16.      Be appreciative and thankful with the little you have someone somewhere has it a lot worse.
17.      There's a huge difference between a boy and a man.
18.      Pride wouldn’t take you far only humility will.
   19.      Sometimes the grass is greener over there because it’s fake.
                            20.      Finally, once you are in your 20’s you should not care how you’re being perceived by people. Trust me you will never be defeated by their actions or words, just ignore and keep building.

LIEBSTER AWARD X 11 RANDOM FACTS

I was nominated by Mercy from Busy and Fab. So basically, you have to mention the person/s who nominated you, answer their questions, post 11 random facts about yourself, choose 11 blogs that inspire you, and of course, create 11 questions for them too. Down below are questions asked by Mercy. Here we go!
LIEBSTER AWARD

 1.    What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I watch Inspirational videos to start my day or week, do anything related to blogging (prep outfits for future blog post, take pictures, edit pictures, write future blog post, reply comments, stop by other blogs, reply emails and so on), I also do school work and create time to talk to friends/family, oh and I sing and dance (life is short).
2.    How would you describe your personal style and is there a person who is a fashion inspiration to you?
My style is so versatile. It’s also a media for self-expression and as such I have realized that my style changes and evolves over time, also depending on location and basically how I’m feeling at a particular point in time. When it comes to style I’m unpredictable, however, factors in my style that remain constant are comfort, simplicity, modesty and colors (I love incorporating colors into my outfit) I think it’s my signature look. My fashion Inspiration since I was a child is my mum, seeing her look divine in every outfit without even trying inspired me to always look decent. However as a style blogger I'd say Style Pantry is my style inspiration, as I see myself dressing similar to her when I get married.
3.    What inspired you to start your blog?
Looking good and well put together is one of my many passions I exhibit on a daily basis and I do get compliments on how I dress and also get asked about my outfits. I always make sure they are documented on Ig or fb, but I needed a bigger platform to truly express myself and then came the idea of blogging and it’s a risk I’d never regret. So I’d say the drive in me inspired me to start my own blog.
4.    What is your proudest moment?
If you mean my proudest moment as a blogger, I’d have to say late June 2016 when I was up all night setting up my blog all by myself from scratch for a week and finally seeing it turn into what I envisioned it to be, that is one of the proudest moment for me as a blogger.
But if it’s just a general question, I’d say every single day of my life is a proud moment for me, as I try to be a better person in all aspects of my life.

5.    Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
For the purpose of this question I’d say blogging is my hobby, but have always said blogging is my passion and someday hopefully I’d love to turn it into a profession.
6.    What is the biggest difference in your life post-blogging?
Hmmmm!! I’m not really a fan of heels; I just wear them for the purpose of blogging, to occasions and events. But in my everyday life it’s the last thing you’d see me wear. It slows me down, maybe its cause I’m a student.
7.    What do you like the most, Clothes, bags or shoes?
Clothes!!!! I can’t emphasize enough on this. Having decent outfit/s is one of the key to looking decent and sophisticated. Clothes, then I can go for shoes.
8.    How much time do you spend blogging?
There is no in-between; I literally can spend a whole week blogging and the next it’s like I have no blog. But on a serious note blogging is really time consuming, like I expressed in No 1. One of the misconceptions of bogging is that it’s so easy. Well I thought so too until I launched The Style Fanatic and started managing it. If you want to open a blog make sure it’s a passion of yours and not something itching you to do cause everyone is doing it.

9.    How do you envision your blog to be in five years’ time?
Well branded. By God’s grace
10.    Which do you like more, shopping in the physical store or online?
Definitely shopping online why you ask, it’s because the advantages outweigh the advantages of shopping in the physical. I’m not a fan of standing in a queue just to try on an outfit I probably wouldn’t buy, or try looking for an attendant to ask them if a certain outfit comes in a size S. Online it’s vivid, out of stock or in stock, plus you get to eat while shopping online, It helps with good fashion decision making. Try it out and thank me later.
11.    What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger?
Now this question is really one of my favorite amongst all. The greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger for me is sincerely seeing my hard work and efforts being appreciated by a lot of people from around the world. People relating to the content I put out really do make my day and it brings me so much satisfaction than food.

11 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
1.       I have reverence for God; my spiritual life is something I don't joke with. I can’t step out of the house without Praying.
2.      I love having deep and thoughtful conversations with people.
3.      Not that it matters but I rep Pisces (water sign). Where my fellow water signs at.
4.      I’ve always wanted to be an Architect or a Lawyer. That boat sailed later on.
    5.      I am an ambivert (Google is your friend) but I really love peace, quiet and a lot of alone time which is sometimes misunderstood but hey you can’t please everyone.
 6.      I am a bit obsessive over cleanliness and organization. If you don’t care about good hygiene, buh-bye.
7.      I’m goal oriented, and I give myself constructive criticism almost every night before I sleep.
       8.      I’ve won an International beauty Pageant (being the only African) and was once on the cover of a magazine here in Russia. One of my proud moments
9.      I'm simple, straightforward and I love laughing!!!! Want to get my attention, there you go.
10.  I care for people way too much which I feel is a gift and a cross to carry.
11.  I have multiple personalities. If you think you know me you don’t.
Bonus!
12.  I still watch cartoons 😏.
13.  I’m in the process of learning to play my guitar, someone please help me I need motivation.
14.  I’m not a fan of pretentious and condescending people.
15. I don't compare myself to people. I believe we all have different paths to walk here on earth.

I don’t mean to intrude on anyone’s privacy if I’ve nominated you and you can’t do it, it’s okay but it would be fun getting to know more about my fellow bloggers. Plus, just answer the questions asked by mercy which I’ve already answered, I’d love to know your response towards them.
Thanks for reading, I know it was a long one but I hope you did find it interesting.

LAST MINUTE COUPLE V-DAY OUTFIT


Hello Lovelies! This is the first time collaborating with a Male Fashionista Adanya Samueland it did turn out well even though the weather wasn't good to us. So Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I’m here to give you an outfit style inspiration on what to wear that’s if you are still confused on that. It doesn’t have to be a dress, in fact it doesn’t have to be something too extravagant (try recycling an outfit in your wardrobe instead of spending money on a brand new dress) Obviously there would be a lot of couples’ that day celebrating V day so you and your partner can actually pick both your outfits together to stand out from the rest. I’d say try and give a somewhat ‘matchy’ vibe theme that way people know he is yours or she is yours.
Anyways unto this outfit, that top actually is a T-shirt dress (styled here) turned into a blouse for the purpose of this picture and I wore my blue wide leg chiffon pants from Zaful, accessorized moderately and wore my black boots. Samuel's outfit did complement mine so well; you can see the blue theme going on here and how decent and modern we both look.
Valentines day isn't about your partner alone or a fancy restaurant, show love to the people around you, it definitely will make their day. That’s all for today, don’t want to write much I believe the picture speaks for itself. 

SHOP MY LOOK

IRRESISTIBLE ME X LAYERED UP

It was snowing as you can clearly see when I had this picture taken but just had to get this shoot done either ways. Wide leg pants is one of the fashion trends that isn’t going anywhere for now, it’s still trending. I decided to try it and I got this Mustard Wide Leg Jumpsuit from Gamiss.com. Styled it according to the present weather here, the thing about this particular wide leg overall is that it’s so versatile, you can wear this outfit in all seasons, especially during the summer, there’s so much potential in it. I know I’m exaggerating but you get what I mean. I might style it again when the weather is a little bit warm to show you different ways it can be styled.
I got this Clip in Hair Extension from Irresistibleme.com I clipped it on my hair as a ponytail but you can style yours differently. Irresistibleme.com deal with hair extensions, accessories and hair tools. The clip in extension came in a fashionable box, shipped through DHL and arrived in three weeks. That’s it for today, please do share this post and I wish you all a fruitful week ahead.
