Every year the ‘black girl magic’ just keeps getting better and undoubtedly noticeably. There have been so many ‘wow, it feels good to be a black woman’ moments, although there are still many hurdles to overcome, it is just wonderful seeing black girls and women occupying more spaces than before.
Some of my favourite black girl moments included the release of visuals for ‘Lemonade’ and ‘A seat at the table’ which extruded of some many black pride moments, glorifying the beauty that is black people. While in fashion Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Obama looked ever so graceful and mesmerising on their individual Vogue covers. And most recently I was ecstatic to hear about Issa Rae receiving a Golden Globe for the relatable and quirky television series, ‘Insecure.’ My goodness there were just so many more black women success moments in 2016, but these are just the few that stood out for me.
To celebrate my one year ‘blog-versary’ and also because it is the season of giving, I have decided to do a giveaway to say thank you to all you amazing people who have supported my blog thus far. One lucky person will get the chance to walk away with two gorgeous matte lip liquid colours from The Body Shop.
I started blogging with the intention of improving my fashion and beauty writing skills. I did not expect to have a following of people who would actually enjoy what I was writing. The words of encouragement and support has kept me going throughout the whole year. The emails, DMs and messages that I have received during the year have warmed my heart dearly and pushed me to keep doing what I’m doing. I have met some amazing bloggers, worked with talented photographers and had some great writing and guest blogging opportunities.
I really love and admire each and every one of you who take the time out of your day to read and follow my blog, it really means a lot to me. The giveaway includes two brand new gorgeous matte lipsticks in the colours Windsor Rose 032 (the nude) and Sicily Iris 09 (the deep purple). I chose these colours, because I think the colours will suit almost any skin tone and are lovely festive colours to rock this holiday season.
We all love maxi dresses for the warm, summer days they are super comfortable and girly. However, midi dresses are just as great for the summer breeze and can work with almost anything in one’s closet. Midi dresses can be styled in numerous ways to create a super stylish and effortless look or a casual and timeless look. As a summer trend midi dresses are rather under-appreciated, but are definitely your BFF wardrobe item this summer.
