Style, Like fingerprints is unique...


Hello Guys, apologies for the very long hiatus, life again took over. Its funny when I recall my reasons for starting this blog. I felt like my life experience at the time spurred on my passion to document most of the activities I engage in via pictures and short stories however, little did I know that 4 months later I would be expecting baby number 2; especially when I was still trying to figure out the intricacies of blogging i.e. scheduling a blog post with a full time job, photoshoots, by the way my husband takes my photos. I am sure he sometimes says to himself "what have I gotten myself into" but nonetheless, I am so grateful to have the best support system. In all honesty, I married my best friend because between the back and forth of trying to get the best shots, it has not been easy but I have to commend him for his patience and love. What's that thing they say "a happy wife makes a happy home" ( inserts a wink). 


Moving on to the early onset of 2017, I got knocked up and then started the process of experiencing what each trimester had to offer. To be fair, I had a good pregnancy; but I didn't feel motivated enough to write blog posts or take pictures. I was just living in the moment and rediscovering myself and boy! did I learn a lot. Fastwards 10 months later we welcomed another gorgeous baby boy, so by the time my blog turned one, I was already a mum of two beautiful boys. Another life changing moment which is an amazing priveledge and I feel extremely blessed and thankful for the opportunity.


Although, life has not been easy being a mum of a fairly active toddler and a baby, I guess I can't complain, as I know what I signed up for. In all this, I have decided to always keep a positive mindset at all times, a lot more self care i.e a little mani/pedi, spending quality time with family and friends and of course focus on what makes me happy i.e fashion, beauty and taking a lot more pictures for the gram.



Hope your weekend has been great, many thanks for reading!

Over the years, I have been on the hunt for a mosturizer/primer that works well in minimizing my oily proned skin. I have tried a good number of brands in the market but non seemed to do the trick, often leaving me with a greasy complexion all day long; even after using blotting paper. I recently tried the DayWear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme from Estee Lauder and got amazing results. It adequately controls shine, thereby giving a healthy matte finish without any  grease, even hours after application. This Gel Creme has now become an essential part of my skincare regimen. 


The texture of the Gel Creme is lightweight and doesn't leave any oily residue once applied. It  contains cucumber extract which has numerous benefits to the skin. Being an anti-oxidant it helps the anti-ageing process by reducing fine lines and also assists in improving the natural scent of the product.  It is also non-acnegenic; which is less likely to cause acne breakouts or clog pores.


The DayWear Matte Oil-Control Anti-Oxidant Moisture Gel Creme has really been a game changer in my daily routine. I use it as a primer before make up; keeping my skin hydrated and providing that perfect base for my foundation to blend smoothly. I also use the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation. These products compliment each other greatly.


I would love to hear your thoughts on how you tackle oily skin woes and the best product that you reckon would be helpful in minimizing large pores. Please do share in the comment section below.

Thank you so much for reading!

I have never really been an avid sneaker fan, as I never thought they suited my personality; however, on seeing these luxe floral embroided trainers from missguided, I had a change in perception...

Apart from the unique floral look, the sneakers are very soft inside making them quite comfortable to wear. This for me is important, as I believe that a good pair of shoes should go beyond aesthetics alone. Also, the smooth synthetic leather material makes it really easy to clean.

These white luxe floral embroidery trainers from Missguided is quite similar to the Gucci low top sneakers, so if you are one who wants the luxury look without having to shell out too much cash, this pair is for you.



What I am wearing:
COAT:: ZARA OLD BUT SIMILAR HERE|| CASHMERE JUMPER::MARKS AND SPENCER || JEANS:: ZARA || BAG:: MICHEAL KORS || SNEAKERS::MISSGUIDED

Hey guys, trust everyone is having a relaxing weekend. So here's my sunday unconventional tailored look. This amazing shirt is from Marks and Spencers. I particularly like the sleeve as it comes in a loose fit bow at the cuff, creating the on trend bell sleeves. It is made from pure cotton and best of all, it costs less than £40. In my opinion, this ought to be a staple in everyone's wardrobe....

Hey guys, apologies for the long break. Its been a rather hectic period for me to say the least. With barely 21 sleeps to Christmas, I appreciate that some folks may still be unsure of the right gifts to get their loved ones this yuletide, so I have curated 6 items each all under a £100 that would make ideal christmas presents. Click on the image to shop your favorite item, Happy Shopping!
