HAT-trick

Hats, like  many other accessories, is a way of expressing yourself. A manner of telling people exactly who you are without saying a word.




Gone are the days when wearing hats were mainly to cover up bad  hair days. Hats have become very important accessories. Caps are no longer for the post man and big avant garde hats are no longer only for church ladies.




A hat tells the story of your personality. It's as important as the entire outfit and no longer just an after thought or a simple add on. Also, a hat is not limited to one season. It's one of those accessories that you can wear all year around.





So what is your poison?  A beret, wide-brimmed, a fedora or a baseball cap. Whatever you prefer, I am sure this post is bound to inspire you. When you wear a hat you exude the idea of confidence and mystery. It's cool, vibrant and ultimately refreshing.





How do you style your hat? Do you think hats are just as essential as the rest of the outfit? I would love to hear from you.

Review : Almay Intense I -Color Volumizing Mascara

I have been using Almay Intense I-Color Volumizing Mascara for a while now and I freaking adore it. Actually, I  will fight someone for this mascara. Lol, not really. This was a spur of the moment purchase because my regular mascara was out of stock and I was desperate.


Typically, I like thin brushes because they elongate my lashes. Every single one of them. So needles to say, I was not to keen on this thicker brush. They are usually too messy for my liking.


 Let me tell you how wrong I was about this mascara. It makes my eyelashes look gigantic. Not only that, it is perfect for my sensitive eyes. During the summer months I somehow I have these itchy eyes and this mascara is perfect for that.


If I'm a hundred percent honest, I almost didn't buy this mascara because of the R185 price tag. As much as I love my make up, I like it better when it suites my budget. After contemplating a bit, I went ahead and bought the mascara and it was money well spent. Right now, this is my favourite mascara. It goes without saying that I'm going to stick to this one for now.

Have you used this mascara? I would love to hear from you.

TILL LATER, LAUREN!

The 2017 British Fashion Awards

Hey everyone!

It's been a little while since I have posted and I thoroughly believe that blogging breaks are necessary. So often I get so caught up in worrying whether people will actually read my blog that I forget why I started to blog in the first place. Not for everyone else but, because this is how I keep my sanity. Ok that's enough ranting for today.

I love doing fashion posts. Trend posts and especially award show red-carpets are my favourite to blog about. I decided to do a quick post on The 2017 British Fashion Awards because I found that it was actually a really interesting red carpet. Not all looks were winning looks but, there was FASHION. And risks...which is what I like to see. Here are some of the looks that stood out for me.

















What did you think about the red carpet? Who won the night for you? I would love to hear from you!
