Hi everyone! So for the past few weeks i have been swamped with work, writing my thesis and all that before i journey my way through to school practicals.

In today's post I'll be doing everything leggings! 

What are leggings? 
1. Tight-fitting stretch pants.
                                                          2. Protective coverings for the legs 

You know you are committing fashion murder when:

  • YOUR LEGGINGS DOES NOT FIT : Ensure that the leggings that you are wearing actually FITS you. Be honest about your size!!
  • YOU SHOW MORE THAN YOU SHOULD: Always ensure that you are wearing something a teeny bit over your lady parts when you do wear leggings, especially leather ones! As the tightness of it can be seriously distracting to others. (The worse is when i can see a females privates right through the legging.)
  • THE LEGGINGS ARE SLIGHTLY SEE-THROUGH: One of the worse fashion mistakes which i was unfortunate to witness was seeing someone's underwear right through the leggings, hence make sure that your leggings are not worn out by updating your pair or having more than one in your closet (it's time to move on!) 
  •  WEARING LEGGINGS WHICH IS MID-CALF: THIS IS NOT FLATTERING, YOU ARE NOT 12 YEARS OLD(unless you really are, lol) in which case you will not wear it. Wearing leggings which are mid-calf, makes you look short and stumpy. The more elongated your leggings are, the better you look. 
  • LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS: This is a very common misconception made. Firstly, why do you feel the need to wear leggings as pants? That is what your PANTS are reserved for.  
  Happy legging-wearing!

LOOK POST: Rough around the edges

I hope that everyone enjoyed reading my post on Nivea shower & shave as this was my very first product review! I hope to do more in the future. 

On the flip side... 

This shoot was taken in our back yard along with KiKiCoCo photgraphy, according to her, she wanted something which envisaged a  'rough' looking atmosphere and nothing complimented my outfit more than the tyres in the background and old wheel barrow:) 

What i wore...

 We paraded my closet for something that would compliment the theme well.
We opted for a Burgandy skinny jeans ( Click here)
A plain Camo Tshirt (Bought almost 5 years ago)
Aviator sunglasses 

The truth ...

To be quite frank, I am not embracing the 'camo' trend very easily as I am with the burgundy. I feel that designers do not know what to do anymore, for this reason they are recycling what was once 'cool' in the late 90's and are bringing it back again purely for the sake of making sales. For this shoot, I wore the camo in minimal portions even though KiKi suggested 'MORE IS BETTER'.

My 1st product review

A few months back i walked into Clicks and saw that the Nivea shower and shave was on a promotion. After reading the 'loveliness' about it at the back of the product i was keen on giving it a try(Of course at this point i had no idea that I'd put it on my blog). (Laughs).

Then what happened?? 

Well i did not try it immediately. Last month was the first time i had an opportunity to try out the product. The texture is not gel but rather a smooth 'soapie' texture. When rubbing it on the area to be shaved, it quickly erupts into a foam which makes shaving your legs and underarms effortless. This leaves your skin moisturized, hydrated and SOFT AND SHINY. 

Why I <3 it...

I love how you can shave on the one hand and shower with the SAME product on the other. This is the perfect product to use if you are in a rush in the morning and forgot to shave the night before AND its like 30 degrees outside and you NEED to wear that shorts.. Okay.. Bit dramatic? But these things happen. Best be prepared with Nivea shower and shave. 

Always a pleasure writing to you<3
