5 THINGS EVERY FASHION LOVER SHOULD KNOW

Current Jam: Honestly, I’ve just been humming all day, no song in particular.

Hey guys, happy new month, I hope the rest of this year brings you lots of goodies.
Today, I have come with a different kinda post and I hope you find it educative. Below are five things every fashion lover and  enthusiast should know.
It is 2017, a with quite a number of fashion trends and fashion flashbacks. Style being a representation of one’s personality and mood, anyone can consider his or herself a stylist (because let’s face it we all style ourselves).
But before exclusively calling yourself a fashion lover or literate, there are a couple of things you should know (things that you won’t be forgiven in the fashion world if you don’t know them).
● FASHION TERMS

Fashion LoverJust like any other aspect of life, fashion has its very many terms you should be familiar with. Imagine you’re in a gathering of ‘fashion lovers’ and a word like ‘Skorts’ is said, you should know what it means or at least have an idea otherwise you’d be lost in the conversation.
● CORRECT PRONUNCIATION OF DESIGNERS NAMESFashion loverTrust me, wrong pronunciation of designers names is frowned upon in the fashion world. With designers from different parts of the world, names being their first form of identification, you do not want to butcher their names. As a fashion lover, you should not only pronounce designers names correctly, you should also spell their names correctly. (I’m still working on this tip myself)
● THE COOLEST FASHION BLOGGERSfashion lover tips (7)This is more of personal preference, you should be able to list at least 10 fashion bloggers by heart and also say a few things about their style and blogs because fashion bloggers bring it all home, the fashion world can be overwhelming but following fashion blogs always simplifies fashion making it easier to follow and relate to new trends.
● KNOW THE FASHION EVENTS CALENDAR
fashion lover tips (6)From fashion weeks, to collections debut and many more. This way you always know what some of your favorite brands are up to all year round.
● FASHION TRENDSfashion lover tips (1)Not just current trends, but upcoming trends too it is important that you know what fashion trend is in and do a sort of ‘background check’ to ensure that you can say a few things about the trend’s origin, when it first started and the current twist to it.
With these 5 tips, you can confidently hold a fashion conversation without seeming off.
All these said, It is very important to always keep your eyes and ears down for any news and tips because Fashion keeps revolving and changing so try to keep up.

TRIALS OF A SALON

Present Jam: No forget by ADEKUNLE GOLD and SIMI

Heyyyyy,
Howdy?? I recently had my hair done (maybe not too recently). Have you ever had your hair done so badly, that you go home and almost cry…or just cry either from how ugly it looks or how much it hurts? Well, I have, I have had my hair done that I cried on my way home like 10 times or more. Especially when I use so much money to make an ugly hair, sigh… so yeah, I have experience with badly done hair. You might be wondering why I allow this happen to me more than once, well, I trust the hairstylist too much, that I never ask questions looool. Actually, I used to be too timid to speak up… but no more!
You know how you walk into a salon and pick a style, and the hair stylist goes all ‘aunty I can make the style’ but ends up doing something totally different and ugly. It can be a total balls buster. I have combined some tips to avoid going through badly done hair.

 PAY ATTENTION

Salons can be very distracting, so many gist flying around, don’t be too distracted, pay attention to what is the stylist is doing on your head, that way you can notice any fault as soon as possible.

QUESTION THE STYLIST

I used to be too shy to do this, I don’t know why. See, you are paying for the service so ask as many questions as possible, don’t die in silence! Complain when the hair hurts, because if you don’t, you will pay severely for it at night.

ASK TO SEE A MIRROR

If you are not already facing the mirror, ask to see a mirror, this will save you time as you can detect a fault as soon as possible, rather than after the hair is done. Some hairstylist for some reason will be reluctant to give you a mirror, abeg emphasis, otherwise, get up and leave.

STYLE YOUR HAIR

You should style the hair how you like it to  see if it fits, rather than having the hairstylist do it his or her way, as you might have different perspective (most hairstylist I have visited, tends to comb or brush my hair flat, but I like big hair). I will normally pick a comb or brush and style as preferred when I have weaves on and when I have braids, I pack it or style it as desired.

FINISHING TOUCHES

They want you to leave as soon as possible, don’t be in a rush, look at a mirror to detect any errors, and be at alert, this is when they tend to put too much oil or so… decline fast and vehemently if you don’t want this.

I hope these tips helped you, till the next blog post . xx

The weekend is almost over, I wonder where it is always rushing too, but as we prepare to go into the new week, I thought it’d be nice to have some everyday health tips. For me being clean is very important! as I tend to react to dirts furiously, I have very sensitive skin guyssss, its not even funny. Someday soon, I will tell you about my break-out struggles.

DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE

Ok, let me rephrase, don’t touch your face too frequently. In between door knobs, typing on your phone and using the toilet our hand come in contact with millions of germs and this makes the hands our greatest skincare enemy.

CLEAN YOUR PHONES REGULARLY

Our phones comes in contact with our face one too many times, and they say phones are filled with germs more than toilets (I don’t know how true that is, looool) try as much as possible to wipe them clean with a not-so-wet wipes or with mentholated spirit and cotton wool at least once a day.

PROPER CARE OF PANTIES

Our panties needs proper care girlssss, you know how easily we can get infection, whatever method you use when  washing them, make sure you don’t spread them inside out since that is the part that comes in contact with your pubic are (okay, Vjay-jay).

DON’T TOUCH THE RAILINGS

Public railings are the grossest things, they are full of GERMS! If you want to know how dirty they are, sit close to a public railing for just 5, and watch how that person that just picked his/her nose rubbed it on the railing or that person that sneezed into his/her hand rubbed it on the railing too, its an endless list of disgusting rubbings. If you must touch the railings, use a hand sanitizer afterwards.
