Friday ootd : Sporty chic Goon

The last time this skirt made an appearance on my blog, it was styled with a white off the shoulder top, some gladiator sandals and a very poorly fed afro puff held back by a headband I have since banished from my belongings. I know I want to try this girly girl thing but floral? really? It might have worked with bigger hair but the look was downright mediocre and for what it was worth, I didn't do it any justice. Seriously, that thing cost me an arm and a leg, it was the only skirt of its kind at the time, what was I supposed to do?

OOTD : Channeling my inner Mona

I hope to take these photos again. For now I still rely on video stills.

You know Mona, from half and half. Big hair, bigger boots, sistah sans soul, a perfectly organised awkward mess who just didn't know how to respond to good mojo because she attracts life's curveballs like a magnet! That Mona. Well she was my favourite character in, dare I say it, all of television. I damn near broke the wifi scouring the interwebs for a full picture of her but I had to resort to screenshots of the show on youtube (Yep, I still indulge) and made a Gif fully describing  what it is about her that resonates with me. This will be on the gram soon!

New additions to my Makeup collection

The memes say your make-up is only as good as your brushes. And you know what they say about the memes, always always believe the memes.

 Beauty on a budget and spoiled for choice rarely ever make it to the same sentence and the former often means a compromising on quality, which makes me wonder how I am ever going to review my picks when I've never used the "good" stuff. Wait a minute. . .I just cooked an evil diabolical scheme that just might make that possible! It involves a detour to Gateway in Durban on my way back to school, and Mac cosmetics. Skhotheni on another level sana. Stick around ! That review is going to happen.
