Some of my favourite make-up (MAC foundation, Modern Muse by Estee Lauder, Catrice Eyeshadow and Estee Lauder limited highlighter)
Nothing is more frustrating than realising you’ve only got 30 minutes until you’re suppose to be at work or at your next lecture leaving you with only 15 minutes to do your make-up. So during the week I opt for a more natural and less look with medium coverage on my face, because I just never have enough time to apply a full face of make-up.
So here are my go-to makeup products that I use and some tips to help you enhance your makeup so you look extra flawless.

Today is officially ‘Lemonade’ Day. So if we could all just pause for a moment and reflect on the slayage that Beyoncé just did in her latest album ‘Lemonade’ visually and lyrically.
Coachella has become one of the most popular and loved music festivals in the recent years. As the years go by the festival is only continuing to gain more momentum and support from people all over the world.
What I loved most about this year’s fashion at Coachella was how everyone was so different no one tried to look or imitate anyone’s look. You could find people of different styles and cultures there, it definitely looked like a vibrant and an exciting weekend for those who were there. While the rest of us suffered from a serious case of FOMO. 😦
Here are some of my favourite moments from weekend one of Coachella which were captured by Dreily.S. If you want to see more of his work head on over to GQ magazine, I’ll post the link at the bottom.

So the first weekend of Coachella has come and gone, but the next weekend is also guaranteed to be another show-stopping, fashionable weekend. Since I can’t attend Coachella for the next 10 years of my life I can only imagine myself being there and dancing the day and night away to some of my favourite bands and artists.
The most exciting thing about Coachella besides the music and festivities is the fashion. Just because I am not there it does not stop me from daydreaming of all the wonderful outfits I could rocking during the two consecutive weekends of the music festival. To those of you who are attending the event, I’m super envious of you and to anyone looking for inspiration for future music festivals that they will be attending, once again I’m super envious of you. Nonetheless I am still willing to share with you some fashion tips and looks for all you lovely, boho, festive ladies.
Okay, I know I’m no make-up artist or professional beautician but I do know a thing or two about make-up and its products. This week I want to share one of my favourite make-up/ beauty product with you and tips on how to use it and care for it.
I can safely say I completely understand the obsession over the beauty blender. Although I do not own the original beauty blender as they are quite difficult to find in South Africa. The Urban Beauty United (UBU) Baby Blender works just as perfectly and flawlessly. For my South African readers you can purchase your own UBU Baby Blender at any Clicks store for only R125. Which is a reasonable price in comparison to the original Beauty Blender which goes for R250 and that’s excluding shipping. Yikes!
From a very young age I have always been a fan of the blogging world and I have been following blogs such as the Man Repeller, The Blonde Salad and Style Rookie for many years now and I am still obsessed with these blogs today. Earlier this year I decided to try out blogging one last time since now I have a bit more time on my hands. So far it is working out well and I only hope it continues that way. It would not be fair on you guys to start reading my blog and then all of a suddenly I just stop. After two failed blogging attempts I do hope the third time will be the charm and last longer than six months. For those of you who have been reading Nzuri since day one thank you so much and those of you who have just come across it I do hope you’re enjoying it so far.
So the cold, chilly days are slowly creeping in, in many parts of South Africa. While in other parts of the world are getting out their bikinis and shorts, we are reaching for our coats and scarves. This week I decided to share some Autumn/Winter tips to keep you looking fashionably show-stopping even in the cold. I will also share with you my favourite Autumn/Winter item that I will be rocking this season. I have even accepted that it be circulating between my mother, sister and I non-stop this Winter.
When one thinks of Autumn/Winter only gloomy, cold and dull days come into mind. However this is not an excuse for you to look gloomy and dull. Instead invest in statement, colourful clothing from coats to gloves and even boots. It is no surprise that Ted Baker is a fashion line that is all about bright colours. So when my eyes made contact with the electric-orange Ted Baker coat, I knew it was a must-have item for me this Winter for the cold days ahead. My favourite part of the coat is definitely the floral detail inside the coat. The detail inside brings out the fun and casual feel about the coat without it having to appear to serious. Check the images below to see my latest Winter obsession.

Dress – Mango
