WHY YOU SHOULD GET RID OF YOUR OLD MAKE UP PRODUCTS THIS NEW YEAR




The first few months of the new year are full of articles about how to change you life from toning up to losing weight to getting an entire new wardrobe that will equip you for all the special occasion.
Revamping your look however does not have to be radical or expensive.Infact it can start off as quite basic.
Throwing out old makeup is always a good place to start.
If you have been stuck in a rut using the same old colours of makeup then its time for a change.
Changing your lip or eye colour can make a big difference.

MAN CRUSH MONDAY:TAZIBONE SOLOMON



I have known Solomon for quite some time(mostly virtually) and he is one of those people who have really nice personalities.I feel privileged to know him.

HOT HAIR ALERT: WE ARE LOVING FAUX LOCS FOR THE YEAR 2016





Faux locs are a sexy and stylish protective style that allows you to see how you would look if you decided to rock real locs. They are a protective style that creates the illusion of real locs by winding extensions around sections of your own hair. They are growing in popularity and as more women rock them, some are finding out there may be concerns on whether or not they are damaging to one’s own hair. 

Extra strain on your scalp with the added hair can cause excessive tension so be careful when getting them braided.
Most importantantly moisturise your hair as much as possible to avoid the build up of dandruff and to soften the scalp.What do you think?Will you be trying this trend or nah?

The first time I met this woman(online ofcourse), i literally cried tears of joy.I have met so many women who because they are plus size suffer from a low self esteem, so much you can tell from a distance that their weight is the cause their unhappiness.

I hope that by sharing her pictures, more and more plus size women will be inspired to love themselves and their bodies.

Nickita(in gold) arrives for event with friends
.A Night In The Emirates went down on Friday night at Cayenne Lounge in Bukoto.
The Arab themed event organised by Nickita Bhachu of Flames Marketing and Events started at a late 10pm and was attended by Kampala fashion lovers and party lovers.
The fact that it took place on the same night as the presidential debate worried me a bit.I thought it would be a flop.But to my surprise it wasnt!the only glitch was that guests started coming in at a late 10pm,the time the presidential debate ended.
Either way the event ended up being a huge blast with every who is who on the kampala social scene in attendance.
The lady of the night(Nickita Bhachu) and her boo Gareth Onyango arrived in at  around midnight and kicked off what would be a wild night.
The emcees Isaac,Sheila Saltofte and Emcee Kats ensured that revellers had a good time.
The event ended at around 5am in the morning.
