Fashion Style from Africa

   African Fashion Week recently took place in London, where famous and emerging African designers have had the chance to show their creations on the catwalks in front of an international audience. The colours and patterns of Africa are now becoming a must in the world of fashion and African prints have also been used by large fashion houses for their own line.

Myriad of colors

 What joy was mine when designer ZnaK, winner of last year's Student designer competition at the 2013 African Fashion Week Toronto asked me to pull a piece from her latest collection to style.  
I was IMMEDIATELY drawn to this skirt because, well, the colors are so bold and un-apologetic; exactly how I feel whenever I wear this skirt!

The truth behind fashion blogging-Bloopers edition

 Fashion Bloggers, how do they do it? They look so poised and graceful and cool and always ready for the camera. It always seems like there's a photographer hiding in the bushes taking perfect pictures of them with their nonchalant looks and 6-inch heels...WRONG! 

I'm here to let you know and see that blogging is NOT as glamorous as it seems! I mean sure, some bloggers are professional models and extremely photogenic but that doesn't mean that all of their pictures are usable!
 I am speaking from experience when I say blogging is work! Both in front of and behind the camera. Now imagine blogging and taking your own pictures-that's double the work because you have to know your angles, distance from the camera and also learn to time all your twirls! Let us dive deeper into this topic shall we?

Monday Chic!

I know, I know. By the time you read this post, it would probably be Tuesday, lol.
 I'm sitting here battling mosqutio bites (and the itches they bring) all over my body! Ohh the pain.

Return of the polka dots...

I loves me some polka dots!
It's impossible to say the word "polka dots" angrily. Just try it!
The name is simply as cheerful as the print.

The Cameroon Tag

AHHH! I'm so excited, my video is finally live!
You don't know how much of a struggle it has been to get it up as I have no internet at home so a HUGE shout out to the BEST MOM IN THE WORLD for all the work! She learnt how to use Youtube over the past 2 days thanks to long phone calls with me and picture sending, haha!

Well, without further ado, I present to you the (lengthy) Cameroon Tag video!

Thanks to all those who sent questions.

All it took was a hat...

I've found my hat for the Fall! Yes, I am "already" talking about Fall, which will be here in 5,4,3...
I picked this hat up a few weeks ago at H&M. I got the biggest size (Large) because I have a double combo-big head and big hair! Lol

Topshop jeans to the rescue!

I hate jeans. I really do. Well, generally. I own 3 pairs-2 in black and 1 in white...until now!
I had also heard that Topshop jeans were great but expensive but I was hearing that from slim, rich girls so didn't take their word for it! I decided to devote a few HOURS of my time 2 weeks ago to go to Topshop and try on as many jeans as possible.

A (not so) haunted castle

 Grrr! I don't have internet and have almost ran up my phone data usage for my cycle so my postings have decreased in number. I am restricted to areas with wifi before I can post and it sucks! I feel like a kid whose Barbie got taken away from her on Christmas! Grrr!

What I wore: African Fashion Week Toronto Day 2

On Day 2, I opted for a piece by the winner of the Student Designer competition, Miss Beida Fashion!
This is also a recycled piece but I saw it fit for the red carpet...as well as the subway service! Lol

What I wore- African Fashion Week Toronto Day 1

I personally don't like when bloggers attend Fashion Week of any sort and all you see are pictures of their outfit. I like to get a feel of what the event was like you know, LOL.
I decided to do separate posts showing what it is I wore so here is number 1!

African Fashion Week Toronto 2014 Part 2- The main event

My beautiful people! Time is short and the pictures are many so I'll keep it short and sweet.
African Fashion Week Toronto is giving me so much life right now! Just when I thought there could be no more designs I had never seen, these designers come and show me "You ain't seen nothing yet!"

Hey folks!
Don't have much time to chit-chat but here are some pictures from Day1.
We the media and the press got a tease of what is to come and to meet each other before it all goes down.

Happy mid-week folks! It's always weird going back to work after a nice long weekend. The work is piled up but you're still in weekend mode. Especially when you head to bed at 2am!! Lol

We don't even have to try, it's always a good time!

Happy Monday folks!
It was the Civic Holiday here in Ontario so I didn't have to go to work (*insert tribal dance*).  Hope your Monday was good?
Over the weekend, I traded in some Caribana partying for a day at the historic Scarborough Bluffs.

Caribana 2014

It has come and passed and boy did it go by so quickly!! I'm talking about the largest Caribbean parade and festival in the world-Caribana!!
This year, I focused more on the cultural side of things versus the night life, haha. There is never a shortage of events to attend during Caribana and everyone from the NBA to the reality stars were in town for a weekend of food, fun and music!
