The Perfect Wardrobe Cluster

 

A perfect wardrobe is built in clusters..

Little pieces that you can mix and match.

in order to build a perfect cluster chose clothing that you can mix and match in colors that compliment each other.

Eg a skirt that fits every jacket you own and a jacket that fits both skirts and trousers that you own.

You don’t need to have too many clothes to achieve this all you need is enough clothes to swap with and more accessories

accessories 20% clothes 10%

Even those on a budget can do this as well because its not the amount of clothes you have but the ability to carefully choose your pieces, to be able to curb the urge to buy things you don’t need and buying only relevant timeless pieces.

a simple colorful scarf can put a spin in an outfit or a broach, this is why having more accessories is one the keys.

Carefully planning your outfits so as to look effortless stylish is another major key.

Froing

 

PhotoGrid_1443538465716

I dont always have a loving relationship with my fro but thats how most relationships are right?

Some days its a battle of wills, i want it to look a certain way but it has a mind of its own so it looking at me with arms folded like let me see how you will do this without my cooperation.

Then i smile and say look at you when i have scarves all around the house.

So like every relationship it takes understanding, patience & compromise.

Always always have scarves and pins to rescue you during these battles for peace sake.

I use my Ori/Okwume (shea butter) all the time, its my go to product, my other product is what i call an elixir its a cocktail of oils extracted from different african herbs.

Protective Styling is the way only, it takes away the wahala of detangling… the horror of detangling *sigh*.

Putting your hair in small three strand braids before you go to bed, makes it easy to comb and saves a bit of styling time, while making the hair look a bit smoother.

When you braid with ori it helps it set and leaves curls when you losen it… Yup the kinky curls we like.

So its really not rocket science to care and manage your fro.

Making An Impression Pt2

 

tumblr_o0ffwmIyXu1rqeun7o1_540

 

 

We are still talking Impressions..!

How do you make a lasting impression?? How do you not cut across as trying too much?

There are two ways you can make an impression, Verbal Or Non-Verbal.

These are ways you communicate yourself to others, the most important is Non-Verbal, your clothes do the talking first before you open your mouth to say anything.

And when you finally get to talk , more than half of the time the tone of your voice matters more than what you are saying.

This is why a nice person might cut across as offensive simply because the person is high pitched.

Don’t judge a book by its cover is for books, consciously or unconsciously you will be judged by your cover which is your appearance- Munoyedi Freda Ogbolumani

This is to say that if you understand that your voice as a major part of communication can influence those around you thereby  adding to your charm and charisma, you will tone and tune it to suit the current role you are playing.

Perfume Basics

 

tumblr_o0lmitfQiM1rqeun7o1_540

 

Perfumes, Yes perfumezzzz We all love to smell nice and edible, here are a few tips on buying and using a perfume.

You wouldn’t want your friends or spouse to choke because of your perfume,the aim is to smell nice not cut off the air circulation….

The essential oils of a perfume react differently with each person.

Perfume; Also called Extract or extrait  are the purest form and the most expensive, last longer too.

Eau De Parfume (EDP)

Is the most popular, provides a lasting fragrance and does not cost as much.

Eau De Toilette (EDT)

This scent is lighter and doesn’t linger as much

Eau De Cologne (EDC)

Sometimes interchangeable with Eau de toilette, light fresh fragrance mixed with citrus oils.

Floral: this blend is mostly from flowers and it’s the largest and most popular, this includes roses, carnation, blossom, gardenia and jasmine.

Citrus: this blend is among the oldest scents, they project sharp natural refreshing and uplifting fragrance, Tangerine, orange, Lime, Mandarin and Lemon.

Oriental: Are a mixture of heady spices, Amber ,Balsams, and Resins, they are warm, exotic and sensual, good for evening wear.

Green: This have fresh, sharp grassy scents blended with Pine, Juniper, Leaves and Herbs, they are sporty are most suited for day time use.

Fougere; Is combination of fresh herbs and mossy ferns with earthly overtures.

The season should also determine the type of perfume to use, Dry season when the sun is out lighter fragrances are suitable, raining seasons warm and intimate aromas.

So, if you prefer something light, choose a citrus-based. Flowery perfumes tend to be sweeter and a bit stronger, while earth-based are simple fragrances that take their base scents from minerals and plants other than flowers, like vanilla or cinnamon. For the full-on sexy effect, however, try a musk. Musk is general a scent taken directly from animals or is an artificial fragrance designed to smell like animal musk.

Trials and Testing:

This is the part that is gets you worked up because sometimes you all in love first with the bottle but the scent is not what you want, Now that you’ve decided the type you want let the testing begin.

Put a little on your wrist and sniff it after a few minutes sniff it again. Perfumes have layers of scents usually after the first scent evaporates, the base oil that contain the fragrance remains on your skin.

To overcome the nose fatigue ,take in fresh air or smell something that carries your own smell like your shirt sleeve or armpit.
