  1. How To Get Rid of Oily Hair

    February 17, 2017 by barbara

    When you are press for time and your hair is greasy or oily, here is a simple trick you can do to keep your hair looking fresh.  Just sprinkle a bit of baby powder on your hair and gently massage it into your scalp.  Then comb your hair until the powder is no longer visible.  Easy peasy right?  The baby powder will soak in the oil fairly well.   With this quick freshening up trick, you do not have to wash your hair daily.  Another good option is to use corn flour.

  2. Grammy Award 2017 Fashion

    February 15, 2017 by barbara

    So it was the 59th Annual Grammy Award ceremony two nights ago.  I have always loved watching the Grammys because I get to watch my favourite artists performing.  I also like to look at the Grammys Red Carpet.  Some of the fashions are really gaudy and weird and it gets weirder every year.  However, there are also some notable styles that are winning the red carpet.  I have here some of my favourites.  Oh not forgetting, one of the performances that I really enjoyed watching with the speakers blasting out loud is the tribute to Bee Gees by Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town and Andra Day.

  3. How To Look Effortlessly Chic?

    February 10, 2017 by barbara

    Sometimes I wonder why some people can look so effortlessly chic.  These people are often in their denim and a shirt or even a sweatshirt but they really look fashionable.  I know this is a silly though but I have been thinking about it for a while.  How does one pull off a chic look together without much effort?  Does a person have to be slim in order to pull off an effortless style?  I read somewhere that it is important to have a set of efficient wardrobe.  Key fashion pieces are important such as a few pairs of nice pants, denim, tailored tops, statement necklaces and shoes. Classic pieces that fit well, flatter your body and can be mixed and matched easily are all we need.


    Time to give my wardrobe a makeover soon!

  5. Beyonce Is Having Twins

    February 3, 2017 by barbara

    Have you heard the latest news about Queen Bee?  She made an announcement on her Instagram that she is expecting twins with her hubby, Jay Z.  Within the first hour, her post had over 2.4 million likes and over 160,000 comments .  The social media went on a frenzy since The Carters’ announcement.  Some internet sleuths even tried to predict the gender of the babies based on the outfit Beyonce was wearing during her pregnancy photo shoot.


    The couple got married in 2008 and has an older daughter, Blue Ivy.   Congratulations to the Carters.  Suddenly I feel like listening to some Beyonce’s songs on my rokit musiciansfriend monitor.

    January 20, 2017 by barbara

    While shopping online, I can’t help but notice that the contemporary kimonos are still very much in trend.  Inspired by the traditional Japanese attire, this modern update that comes in prints, fringe and varying lengths will definitely give any outfit a stylish boho vibe.  It is a big trend for spring and summer.  This versatile piece can be worn with just absolutely anything in your closet.  They are perfect for the warmer months because they are light and airy but you can still wear it as a cover-up when you feel chilly.  If you want to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe, then here are some style tips on how to wear kimono jacket.


    You can wear a kimono over your tank top and shorts.  It makes an interesting combo.


    Throw the kimono over your tee and jeans for a fun casual look.


    Another way of styling the kimono is to wear it with a belt and heels for a more glamour look.

    The kimono can also be worn over your bikini as a cover up when you are at the beach.   So hurry and head over to StyleWe and browse through their vast collection now.  Time to leave your boring sweater behind and style your outfit with a kimono.

  8. Pleats Please

    January 17, 2017 by barbara

    Skirts are indeed the epitome of femininity.  The stylish pleat skirts were on the runways during Fall 2016 collection. Whether it is midi, knee-length or long, it is an indisputable must-have.  Pleated skirts are perfect in an office look or a night out.  Many women chose to wear long pants during the winter months and skirts are not a very popular choice.  I find it extremely stylish to wear a knee-length pleat skirt with a leather jacket and knee high boots. What do you think?

  9. Black Necklaces On Black Outfits

    January 13, 2017 by barbara

    Have you ever tried matching black necklaces with your black outfit, whether it is a top or a dress?  I have seen women with black choker necklaces and black top.  They look great.  I think it is because we get to see the neckline which separates the necklace from the clothes.  What about a black statement necklace with a black top?  What are your thoughts on this?

    Did you watch the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards? I love that Jimmy Fallon was the host this year.  It is his first time hosting this star-studded spectacular and he is so funny.  Did your favorite actors and actresses win? I always look forward to the red carpet event because it is where the stars are dressed in head-turning outfits.  Here are some of my favorites :-
