Roses are red roses, Violets are blue, Keep the flowers, I’d rather have shoes. Most ladies enjoy being spoilt and romanced. Feeling loved, admired and beautiful. Dressing up is not for everyone, however sometimes you deserve to dress up, let your hair down and feel fabulous.
Some may classify it as a ‘cliché‘, some regard it as a blissful day to be romanced and us ladies, adore unconditional smooches, flowers and TLC. Personally I think valentine’s day is cuteee, however it’s simply a normal day as I strongly believe that women should be celebrated all year round. As cheesy as it may be it’s still a beautiful feeling to feel love in the air, enjoying a delicious sultry dinner, indulging in your favourite dessert, cuddling, and just having a cute time together. Ladies get your chick flicks, champers, chocolates ready and simply enjoy the cute love! If you don’t have a significant other that’s ok you can chill with the ladies at a cute spot or just have the girls over for a champagne slumber party. Boys, if you too do not have a significant other.. enjoy a chill session somewhere fun and who knows?? For those celebrating.. have that ‘cheese fest’ and make the most out of it.
Wine, Dine and enjoy being ROMANCED!
I styled three different looks, that would look pretty great for valentine’s day. Red was top of the list being the traditional colour, while infusing black and white with divine lace giving a sultry sophisticated look, finally the frilly dress expelling feminine chic. Hope you guys enjoy the read!

I’m obsessed with cohesion that encapsulates high fashion. I’m really into shades that brightens my skin tone, what better way than the shade red. As a matter of fact it looks magnificent on any skin tone. It makes a stunning outfit and since it’s almost valentines day what better way to start styling red.
I paired the look beautifully making an Inferno statement. I wanted a casual, summary look that would encapsulate spicy sass. What makes for tasteful fashion is the ability to style the outfit differently as per the occasion, but ensuring the look is still captivating. The lace top is so stunning and sexy, thus I put a twist on the outfit and given the fact we went to a BBQ I didn’t find the need to carry a hand bag. The waist belt added an interesting take on the look without the extra baggage. Less Fuss more functionality, still on trend. I paired it with my levi jeans and black espadrilles and for accessories… I kept it red everything, which created a polished, sleek and tasteful finish.
FASHION IS ABOUT DREAMING AND MAKING OTHER PEOPLE DREAM
Lush pink encapsulates femininity and simplicity and the colour looks so pretty on most skin tones. Infusing my creative eye for fashion and changing the dynamic of the look in order to make the outfit flow beautifully. Fashion is dressing like you already famous and sharing your passion with the world.
My outfit reminds me of turkish delight, pink bubbles and pink covered cupcakes. Extreme measures when it comes to my outfit choses… YIP that’s about right! I opted for a blush pink look as it oozes luxurious chic vibes. These trousers are the classic, trendy take on the famous linen trousers; super soft, comfortable and stylish. I then paired it with a mauve minimalistic top, which beautifully slants down, such a feminine detail. The jacket is such a pretty blush shade and simply encapsulates” I’m ready for business” The back detail of the jacket has a peplum effect, which creates an interesting detail. I finished the look with barely-there heels, which is one of my staples in the shoe department. Hair and makeup| keeping it fresh and simple- Nude pink lippi from Mac in the colour “MEHR”. Light shade earrings|I purchased from MRP, which complimented the outfit perfectly.
Did you say Coca Butter? I’m obsessed with fitted bodycon midi dresses as it gives you that amazing silhouette. It hugs and frames the body, while extenuating those curves. This dress does just that! Fits like a glove and instantly gives you curves for days.
Bomb Dress- Fashionnova, USA brand- aimed for the female that craves sleek, sultry fashion. Their pieces are iconic and screams runway vibes. The fit of their clothes are mind-blowing, whilst constructing their pieces with so much sass. I opted for the luxy nude dress as it gives you that great silhouette. It’s a simple dress, but has this sultry, crisp look to it. It’s a halterneck dress covering the neck area, but showcasing your shoulders beautifully. I paired this gorgeous dress with elegant strappy barely-there heels from Simmishoes, UK brand- aimed at lux, high end shoes at a fraction of the cost. It complimented the dress perfectly and looks rather chic. We went for straight, sleek hair and we achieved this by blow-drying it, after cloud9’ing it (magnificent flatiron) one of my fav gifts from hubby. I suggest you guys, head over to fashionnova for beautiful, chic outfits. Bringing my passion to life through tasteful tips. Join the train guys!
“Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it”
Some of you might of stumbled across this outfit on my Instagram feed. I just love the way the colour nude. The weather was perfect, thus I opted for a nude glow, which highlights my skin tone beautifully.
I wanted a chic, sultry look for my hair. I was inspired by Miss Universe-Demi Leigh Peters 2017, doing her final walk for Miss Universe. I simply used a styling mousse, which I purchased from Clicks, which gave it the hold locking the hair to the back. Makeup, sunkissed, golden glow, which I achieved using Mac foundation NC45, Falsies done by TGIF( Charmain Nails and Beauty) I wanted a natural butterfly look for my falsies. She used 14mm, but added smaller lengths in-between creating a butterfly natural effect. Lippi and eyeshadow are from Inglot. I can’t remember the names, but its such a beautiful peachy shade and compliments my eyeshadow perfectly. My tassel earrings, I purchased from Mrpfashion in the colour nude.
Top, I purchased from Missguided years ago and it was the first time I’ve worn it. I have no idea why I waited so long though! Since then I purchased the white as well, such a gorgeous top, sweet and sultry.
I then paired it with these bomb jeans from topshop, which has stripes on the sides and elevates the look drastically. I was so indecisive, which shoes to pair the outfit with I then opted for nude laceup wedges, which are super comfortable and gorgeous! I’m kaka obsessed with anything strappy as it creates luxy and sexy vibes & THAT’S A WRAP!
I’m all for staple pieces that can be paired with beautiful textured shirts that gives your outfit that extra drama! I basically live in Levi’s and I love pairing it with unique shirts that evokes chic, stylish and tasteful fashion.
Did you say summer flirty? I decided on this gorgeous top from sheinside when I saw it online I was blown away it’s so stunning! I paired it with my staple Levi’s and coral wedges and it complimented, oh so perfectly. They are super comfortable and feels as if i’m walking on clouds!

I hope everyone is doing great and having an amazing time off. Did you miss me, because I’ve missed you!
I know I haven’t been writing as usual, thus I’m sending my heartfelt apologies… I had some time off, thus hubby and I went on a belated honeymoon/ first year wedding anniversary celebration and it was magical. We ate everything and anything and had the best time beaching it out!
We decided on Thailand as it was Jody’s first time and given the fact; that I absolutely love Thailand since my cabin crew days and it was great being back at one of my favourite destinations. It was everything and hubby loved every moment. It will always remain close to our heart. To be more precise; we stayed in Phuket and it was rather lovely. My husband has always been up for anything and I got him to do the craziest things, which I was too afraid to do. Nonetheless, he loved it and I enjoyed watching him. Everything was nothing short of amazing. We left no room for sleep, but took to the streets for beautiful adventures together.
Jody is rather passive, charismatic collective, and extremely bubbly to any individual, whilst appreciating their worth and super encouraging. He doesn’t really take time off just to catch a breathe on life. He is so determinded, driven and passionate about his career and that’s really remarkable and inspiring. So I wanted him to take a break away from the stresses of life and take a moment to reflect and find that tranquility. When Jody is surrounded by something unfamilar he is always keen on anything in that particular scenario, on the other hand i’m the complete opposite, hence me saying when I’m afraid to try something, he takes one for the team. I’ll post some snaps down below as mentioned this trip was nothing short of spectacular, exciting, thrilling and some more. Beautiful memories shared with my one and only, the most incredible husband. My greatest wish is simply that his greatest desire is fulfilled. To finding our tranquillity!
Wishing everyone a blessed and wonderful festive season! May you have a fantastic time spending quality time with your friends and family and may you eat everything and anything…lets forget about the extra kilo’s and lets remember the true meaning of xmas and that is Christ!
