I can’t deny it, I love a mustard yellow on my skin tone. It’s so complimentary and makes me feel AMAZING! What I love most about this look is how much my skin is glowing!

I actually take great pleasure in not editing my images. I often trail through my favourite bloggers images and too often I find they’re just too heavily edited.

Don’t get me wrong, when you have large audiences, you evidently answer to a lot of people and they expect nothing less than perfection. They follow you for that reason. Because you look perfect and everything around you looks just that, perfect.

However, I don’t ever want to be forced into a box which is unrealistic and not authentic. If I am nothing; I am without a shadow of a doubt as authentic as you’re going to get because I say it as it is, I don’t front nor do I pretend. I love my magazine and I love the path I’m forging but I no longer love my job. Even though it helps me to survive, it doesn’t help me live or, more conclusively; it doesn’t allow me to live my best life. So I say that, I don’t sugarcoat because I want you the reader to connect with me and realise that even if a picture is perfect, everything around it may not be, and you know what, that’s okay too.

I love the idea that I wear wigs and weaves, I love and wear makeup, I eat meat, I don’t plan my blogs, I eat into my savings. Damn it, I’m far from perfect. But, I lay that side of myself bare and I’m pleased and thankful that I am completely me, online and what you see is what you get.

So with that being said, here’s my favourite picks from a fantastic blog shoot with my fantastic mother, who makes it all seem effortless. She points and clicks and I pose. It’s always fun and I think these images are a testament to that fact. 🙂

Sasha Shantel X Love Leggings #LiveInLove

I hadn’t heard of this brand before they reached out to me for a collaboration. But I can honestly say that I was missing out as I have never worn a pair of jeans so comfortable; and I mean NEVER! I practically shot this look then returned home and wore it at home too. That’s the kind of comfortable I am referring to.

Orange Is The Colour

I’ve never ever purchased an orange blazer before. In fact; I don’t really own much orange clothing. But there is something really amazing about this orange blazer. I have your typical black and blue blazers, I also own yellow and green blazers, but nothing beats my new fave. I had already planned my all white ensemble and knew that the blazer would make it a LOOK. But, I honestly was not ready for this.

Stunting In My Green Shein Suit

Don’t I honestly look like a Jazz musician in this suit? lol; but I absolutely love it! I really wanted to try something a LOT different from my norm. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and not always sticking to your comfort zone. This suit couldn’t be further from my comfort zone. A bright green, not tight fitting suit teamed with big black boots. I never felt so free in this easy and effortless look.
