Skinny Bish Does Cameroon-1

  Unless you do not follow me on Facebook, Instagram nor Snapchat, you would know that I have been in Cameroon for the past 2 weeks! 
 After my big announcement in the last post,  I knew I had to start at home. I had not been to Cameroon in 10 years-imagine that!
As soon as I landed at the Douala airport, I could feel the heat coming through.

Baby got the Bluesss

I've been in bed all weekend battling what I believe is a cold and watching old stand up comedy by Steve Harvey, Rickey Smiley & Eddie Murphy and let me tell you-laughter is definitely good for the soul! I try not to laugh too to hard or else my head starts throbbing but it feels so good with a cup of hot lemon tea next to me. Of course I don't have the perfect picture with the good lighting and perfect white sheets to show you but just picture it in your head, lol.

Some last bursts of color

The weather change is becoming very rel these days with morning temperatures in the single digits and I am not looking forward to that. You know how most bloggers can't wait for Fall? Well I sure can. Fall means Winter and Winter here is NO JOKE.
Lots of snow, bad roads, headaches and colds, way longer nights and slippery ice storms.
I was born in the tropics and have never come around to fully embracing this season called Winter, especially in Canada.
Oh well, while I still can, I will rock my colors and prints until I have to wrap them under layers of clothing and coats :)

Diner en Blanc

And here she is folks...after 867 years! lol
I am done trying to present excuses so let me just tell you what I have been up to versus presenting excuses :)
I have been busy starting my own business (more of that once it takes of), organizing an event I pray would be successful, and several other things. It has led me to think that perhaps I should start a channel documenting the challenges faced when trying to start a business. What do you think?
 I have never been the 9-5 type and so my days in that sector are numbered. I can't wait to be done!

Pink and red can go together

Hello hello everyone!
What has happened since my last post, well a lot: Summer is officially here, I went to St Lucia for my first time to be Maid of Honor at my High School friend's wedding (and came back with the mosquito bites to show), started my own small business (more on that later) and unfortunately more black lives have been taken away by unnecessary police brutality :(
I pray for my fellow black people in the USA. Please be as safe as possible during these trying times.

I decided to do this post to perhaps cheer you up, even if briefly.

Updates and My Own Capsule collection

Hello Hello!!
We are already halfway past 2016! Can you believe it?!
It seems like whenever I'm feeling a little down, I find myself right back here! I miss blogging and more of the "spare time" I used to have but your girl is out here hustling hard! 
 Well, since we last caught up, I've been busy- my sister graduated with a double Master's degree, I flew out to Los Angles to attend the ceremony and got to see my parents whom I had not seen in over a year as well as my cute nephew :)  I also released my very own capsule collection!

The brother turns older

        You know when you're a guest at someone's birthday dinner and you end up dressing up more than the celebrant? Well that was the case with me last weekend! My brother had messaged me to warn me that I would most likely be the "most dressed" for his birthday dinner and my response, "Do I look like I was born to blend in?" Haha. I prefer to be over-dressed than under-dressed. Always.

Hokie pokie Spring

The weather is teasing me and I'm not finding it funny. It's like we're playing the hokey pokey. One day it's a beautiful 20 degrees Celsius and then next day we are getting a chance of snow and lots of wind? Only in Canada!
One of the easiest ways to dress for such unpredictable weather is with maxi skirts! They look appropriate in just about any weather.

Lacey whites and wide leg pants

I only wear all white if I know there will be no sweating nor dancing involved and I am going straight from a car to a particular location and back to the car. Otherwise, I choose either a white top or white pants. It's not even that I'm clumsy, it's just white clothes always find a way of dirtying themselves! Be it dust or someone's dirty hands, a sidewalk, bike, etc etc. You could just be sitting for 2 hours and when you stood up, there would be something that messed up your all white outfit.

Sunflower power!

Ayeeeee! How is everyone doing?! 
My oh my I have been all around North America WORKING like the rent was due last weekend!
I was travelling and moving into a new place at the same time and it was all very crazy but God saw me through.
 I was travelling for both my jobs- my day job and Zuvaa. Let's talk about my Zuvaa assignment because it's more exciting!

The brightened up office look

 When people hear "corporate" they, for some reason, think and gravitate towards sober colors such as black, grey and white. These are all classic combos and great for the more conservative work place BUT it never hurts to toss in some color here and there, especially with temperatures rising.

Broken glass

 When my I laid my eyes on this H&M midi dress, the first thing that came to mind was broken glass. I fell in love with the print and color and made the final decision to purchase it when I saw how flattering it was on my figure!
Mind you, as mentioned in previous posts, I have noticed less elasticity in my mid section and have resulted to sometimes wearing spanx but all in all, this dress was a great fit!

When temperatures are above 0...

Isn't it funny how during the winter, if we experience 0 degrees we whip out the skirts and minimize the clothing but during the Fall, if temperatures drop below 10 it's like the Ice Age just begun and folks step out in layers, ready for battle?
 Well that was the case with this outfit!

In Formation

   I don't know about you but I've been so motivated to get my life in check and on point!
It may be partially thanks to the fact that I cleared off a huge chunk of my debt towards the end of last year and have been given a clearer vision of what God wants me to do.

Burst of colors

Hello hello!
  Hehehe, I decided to re-emerge before the end of the first month of 2016! I told myself no way I am leaving January with just 1 post- so here we are! I won't even lie, the cold de-motivates me from doing any sort of shoot. In addition to juggling 2 jobs, I was also aggressively filling out Grad school applications and anyone who has been through this knows just how time-consuming this can be. From the 5 page statements of interest to the writing samples, forms to fill etc, I had a lot on my hands.

Hello 2016!

Hello hello all and Happy New Year!
I told y'all I would put in more effort to post more often right? Well 1 of my goals is being accomplished so far :)
 Being the budget fashionista I am without a sugar daddy nor rich oga, I am always always looking for very cute, trendy and unique pieces that are affordable-even for the college student!
