Today is another outfit post, I wore this waistcoat as a shirt/blouse with a pair of jeans (fav) then I completely the look with a blazer, kind of gave it a corporate- casual look.

I have layered with this waist coat but I couldn’t get enough good pictures so I refrained from posting it here.

But if you follow me on Instagram @mikunstyles, you’d have already seen how I layered with it.
I thrifted this coat a few months ago it cost #200 and the most interesting thing about it is it is DENIM you’ll know how much of a sucker I am for Denims.. I’m not sure these pictures are showing that its Denim, but it is and that makes me liken it even more.
Everything I wore besides from the shoes was thrifted and the total cost is less than 2000 naira (the jeans was a bit pricy 😒)

Your clothes don’t define you, you define them. Never feel less in your outfits.
They say the most important thing about a dress is the woman in it!

Hey peeps,

How have you been since the last post? I have been so busy, this post in my imagination should have been up since Tuesday, but life happened. If you had a long week like myself, I hope this playful outfit of mine makes you feel better.

I haven’t thought of a title for this post, I am thinking ‘thrift-y’ because virtually everything I was wearing was thrifted, remember how in my last post I said I might become a thrift-addict, maybe I am. Hassie loves to save an extra penny *inserts laughing emoji here*

This outfit made me feel like a small school girl, I am so happy I came across the dungarees denim skirt during my last thrifting adventure. Is it just me or this outfit has a retro feel to it?? Yes retro is totally the new cool for me… technically ‘old cool’ get it??? *inserts wink emoji here*

P.S Excuse any flaw you might see in the pictures, I had to change on the road and that is not a very easy thing to do. You would spot my DIY tote bag in most of the pictures, that bag is too loyal!! Click here to see the post on the bag

MY NATURAL HAIR SUPERHEROES

Present Jam- Up and Up by COLDPLAY

imag1598-01

Heyyy,

It’s the weekend yaaay!! This week was super fast, yh?. I thought I’d share my everyday natural hair heroes as I get a number of questions about my hair. When it comes to my hair, I keep it minimal (I’m on a tight budget). I am a 4b/4c haired girl (kinks and curls) and I don’t load my hair with too many products. I believe in technique, healthy maintenance rather than products, not to say products are bad, but if you can’t afford so many products like me… don’t beat yourself over it.
There are a 100 and 1 natural hair product brands today, and a 1000 and 1 products. Even after over 2 years of being natural, I still don’t know my way around these products. You do not NEED a 1000 and 1 products, what you need is techniques. You need to know what styles works for you, like your go-to style (mine is a twistout). Thanks to naturalista on YouTube, these styles can be learnt easily. I suggest you should look up @naptural85, she is my naturalista icon, she will hook you up good.

Below are my Natural hair superheroes, they are very pocket friendly and always saves the day

Water
The way our hair is built, it is naturally dry, so you need to always keep it moisturized, you should spray your hair with water as frequently as possible.

Shea butter
This will lock in moisture, they are number of DIY shea butter mix, I personally mixed mine with coconut oil and olive oil.

Oils
For moisturizing, there are plenty of oils but 2-3 will do just fine. Oils also gives your hair shine

Combs and Brushes
Wide tooth if you must use them, as combs can be very harsh on the hair, brushes helps to lay your edges.

Bobby pins
Get as much as you can. You will be surprise how they keep reducing; this will help to style your hair.

Spray bottle
Or just get your empty perfume/deodorant bottle and wala!! Spray bottle (that is what I did for 2 years, I recently got an ‘actual’ spray bottle). I usually carry it around with water in it to moisturize my hair.

Gels
(Optional) If you must use remember to also moisturize your hair beforehand, as they can be harsh.

Bands and scrunches
For styling your hair and holding them in place.

Lastly, but not the least, Patience. It’s just hair, no pressure!

Have a lovely weekend

Hassie

What are your hair superheroes and why? What is your go-to style and how long does it take you to achieve it? What oils do you use and why?

first post…..yaay

mikunstyles02

Hello the name is Hasanat and this is me welcoming you to mikun styles, where it is all going to be about YOU!!! I decided to start this blog out of this goodwill of my heart, you can call it my very own humanitarian service to the world (mikun to the rescue!) because I want to enlighten people like myself on how to look and live stylishly on a budget. This would be starting with hints and tips on how to feel and look stylish and fabulous with basically what you have or what you can afford. There will be lots of DIYs, to cut expense corners and still SLAY.
I am quite a big foodie (this is me putting it mildly), and I cook a lot being the only girl and having two brothers that just understand food comes out of the kitchen with the wave of a magic wand, your gain though, as there would be quite a number of food posts, I also bake, so yeah… there will be easy DIY cake making that will be pocket friendly and maybe pastries. I write also (you can check my IG page to see some of my poems @hassie_a), so every now and then there would be some poems posting, writings and quotes, which will be highly relatable.
Looking stylish is almost becoming high end… EXPENSIVE is taken hand in hand with the word stylish, that to slay one most have a fat pocket (high end fashion is not a bad idea… if you can afford it). But you see, I am presently on this tight budget (let’s all be honest who isn’t right? No?…ok!) and I also want to slay like all the other girls nah!… so, I woke up from my long year slumber of ‘I don’t have what to wear’ I hope I am able to wake many ladies out there from this deep slumber. Quite a number of fashion posts here would be very pocket friendly (my pocket is not friendly at the moment by the way), how to look stylish and fabulous on a budget sort to say, I would be treating this topic well because I am on a budget too myself. There is nothing wrong with being on a budget, it just means you have a financial management plan, which in my opinion is a good way to be sure you are utilizing your resources well enough (financial resources being the main attention). Also, there would be some posts to help identify your style, as understanding ones styles stands as a yard stick to incorporate other styles (I try some other styles every now and then, with comfort being a constant… or nah), I am looking to help show you guys how to incorporate some fashion expressions, that you probably did not use to dig maybe because you were just sleeping on that piece, because it is ‘ugly’.
I hope this blog will not be one way-ed, as I will love to hear from you every now and then (the good and the bad). Thank you for checking my blog out. I hope to see more of you.

Much love
Hassie
