5 FALL ESSENTIALS 2020

Hi lovelies,

I hope y’all had a productive week, I did. Before I dive into today’s post, I want to say thank you to those who subscribed to my newsletter and if you haven’t subscribers, kindly do.

It’s getting colder/darker and I see lots people are dressing down for no reason. Well people in Scandinavia usually dress down in winter (even in summer 😀). Today’s post will help you to stay alive and stylish this fall/winter.

First up is BLAZER. A clean blazer will help you stay stylish, you can pair it with dress or pants.

LEATHER SKIRTS: Pleated, Fringe , wrap or mini leather Skirt are one of falls 2020 essentials. I am not a fan of leather skirt but I will be wearing a wrap leather skirt with a nice knee boots this season. If you choose to join the trend, style the leather skirt with a nice shirt or cashmere Knit so it doesn’t look trashy. We only do classy!

THE CLUTH BAG( grab & go): To keep your style alive this season you need to add a clutch bag to your bag collection.

LOUNGE WEAR: The image of Anna Wintour wearing a pair of red tracksuit bottoms went viral in April, those attuned to the latest trends got a cue on how personal style choices will pan out in the coming months. Since then, loungewear has become everything. I have always been a fan of nice lounge wear.

THE NEW JEAN SHAPE: skinny jeans is no longer in trend, I personally have disposed most of my skinny jeans. I find them extremely uncomfortable (they are cute and I know skinny jeans will make a come back). I think people are more into something that will make them look comfortable and feel comfortable. High rise/high waist jeans has been in trend for a while and it’s also fall 2020 essential.

This post is a collaboration with Net-a-porter and “other stories”. Guess what? I will be posting twice a week from next week. It will be Tuesday’s and Friday’s. Tuesday’s post won’t be a traveling or a fashion post. Y’all will have to check in here next week Tuesday to see what it’s about.

Enjoy your weekend.

5 luxury items to never buy!

Hi y’all,

Thank God it’s Friday. I hope y’all had a great week. I’m currently on another getaway again,lol. Unfortunately Today’s post isn’t a travel blog that I promised y’all. I will post it next week Friday.

Today’s post is to enlighten you about 5 luxury items you should never buy. I see a lot of people do it and I shake my head. I like luxury but there are some things that don’t make sense, cos they are seasonal.

Nr 1: BABY DESIGNER CLOTHES;

Spoiling your kids is a surefire way to make them demanding, ungrateful and entitled.It seems more like a delusional thing that you’ve picked up from Instagram or some celebrity hero worship. Not everyone has the same life and the same means.

Hell, even people WITH lots of money put their kids in practical clothes. I read somewhere that Cardi B’s ridiculously monikered baby girl, for whom she is already amassing a collection of designer clothes and who is pushed around in a gilded, winged chariot is currently wearing target onesies because babies puke and poop on everything. Kids grow so fast. Put that money in a savings for them.

NR 2 : DESIGNER PHONE CASES; designer phone case makes not sense to me. We all know that iPhone and Samsung drop new phones every year, which means you will have to change your phone case if you buy a new phone. What will you do with the old one? No one will buy it, waste of money. Just buy something simple and cheap, and don’t forget no one is looking out for your designer phone case.

NR 3: DESIGNER TRAVEL LUGGAGE; Expensive” is an individual judgement. What do you think is expensive? It’s not worth buying luggage at the highest end of the price range for some item. You’re always paying extra for fashion or branding at that price level.

It is not worth buying luggage at the lowest end of the price range either. This is not well constructed and will not be durable. I recently wrote about what you should look for when buying luggage. It applies whether you travel frequently or infrequently because you do not want your luggage to fail and lose your possessions, even if you travel rarely. The luggage should be durable enough to survive the trip, every time. The way they throw luggage at the airport is annoying. I have a weekend designer bag and of cause I will never check it in.

NR 4: EXPENSIVE FURNITURES; what people don’t know is home furniture are also a trend. I don’t have the same sofa I had 5 years ago, cos the sofa I had few years ago is no longer in vogue. I don’t buy trendy clothing but my home furniture is something I like to update. So why buy a sofa for 5,000$? I will never spend more than 2000$ on sofa and the reason why I will spend that much is because of the quality. expensive furniture is not worth buying.

NR 5: DESIGNER FINE JEWELRY; let me start by saying you learn from your mistakes, I bought a designer fine earrings two years ago, which I wore few times. I got tired of it and decided to sell it, unfortunately I had difficulties with selling it, cos my buyer wanted to buy it cheap. It lost its value as soon as the designer drops a new one. I will advise to invest in gold, Diamond or buy vintage designer jewelry.

Ok that’s it on today’s post. It’s your choice what you spend your money on but I won’t do any of the above. wishing y’all a fabulous weekend.

YSL logo belt bag

Hey ladies,

I asked a question today on my Insta-story if I should sell my YSL logo belt bag. Well it’s a tight one. It’s 50/50 and I also got 15 DMs concerning the bag. Apparently some people are already to buy it. I have lots of bags and I feel I have used this bag to my satisfaction . Well used with love and care, I bought it 2018. There’s a receipt and a dust bag available.

The selling price is 650€. I bought it for 900€. It looks almost brand new. Pls one email only, I will reply the first person to email me. Sorry if you don’t get a reply, that means it’s sold.

Happy shopping

Zanzibar vlog

Hey all,

It has been 8 months and 28 days since I posted on my blog, pardon me!. I have been busy, (that is the excuses I give all the time, lol). I have been really busy. I will do better next year (hopefully). Things will be better and different from this very moment. A Few weeks ago I asked my followers on Instagram if it is a good idea to do travel vlogs, 80 percent said yes. The 20% who said no, what is your purpose in life? ,lol. Anyways, I decided to drop this short vlog I made in Zanzibar. I hope you enjoy it. The link below is connected to my YouTube channel. Don´t forget to subscribe and leave a comment.
