Kenya Fashion Bloggers challenge 2 : Monochrome

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Hello there!
Hope y'all doing good.The  second bloggers challenge this time round was the Monochrome look.It wasn't easy for me as I thought it would have because coming up with one coloured outfit from head to toe was quite a challenge.I pulled it quite well with the outfits but as for the shoes that would blend in with this particular outfit well lets just say I didn't get proper white shoes to bring out the monochrome look so instead I wore this black pumps that I bought from Bata.I really love this heels they are so comfy and stylish.Lets get straight into it and see how my fellow fashion bloggers put together their outfits for this challenge.
I went for an all white midriff top and skirt  because its a look I had never tried out before,I must say I loved the out come.I definitely  nailed it,huh!

Ambition is priceless?well i don't think so

Thursday, October 16, 2014

 "For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world,and although ambitions are well worth having,they are not to be won cheaply."

That's one of my favourite quotes I love it because it affirms that nothing good comes easy and there is nothing for free in this world you have got to pay for it chances are by working  hard for it.I started Vonette Boutique in 2012 and back then all I had in mind was that I was passionate about fashion and I wanted to share that by making and selling trendy outfits.Well, my boutique did well more than I expected and I got too overwhelmed because I lacked proper planning for my business.I assumed I would have it easy but that was not the case and an year later I let it go because of being overwhelmed too much and also my 9 to 5 job demanded too much of my time.

Fast forward to 2014 I learnt from my mistakes and now more than ever am ready to re open Vonette Boutique,this time round it will be bigger and better.I will be selling both online and from the shop too,where clients can come and fit the outfits and also buy ready to wear outfits designed and tailor made to cater for  different sizes from small to medium to large.On my next post I will officially launch the shop and let you know on where you can find it.

I believe if you are passionate about something be it starting a business,travel,fashion you name have to first believe in yourself and have faith that it can be done and above everything plan well for it because if you fail to plan you plan to fail and my story here is a perfect example of that.I leave you with one of my favourite quotes on ambition.

                 "Unless it's crazy,ambitious and delusional it's not worth our time."

Beauty:Best Face Forward

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Many women ask, "Why wear make up?" And to them I say, "Why not?"Cosmetics are tools,used to help you put your best face forward,whether you simply slick on a lip gloss,brush your eyebrows and walk out of the door.The goal is to enhance your public face.
A finished face says a lot about you.That you've taken some time.That you care about yourself.That you have self confidence.That you are not ashamed to look pretty or glamorous or fresh or even adorable.
Make up does not require hours to apply.The idea is to enhance not mask,so a light touch with the correct products can make even the most natural face look finished and pretty.
 To achieve this look this is what I did & used :
  • I applied moisturizer on my face
  • Used black opal liquid foundation(Beautiful Bronze)to even out my skin
  • On my eye lashes I applied two coats of mascara(M.A.C Mascara)
  • Used 3 different shades of lipstick(sleek's Pearl Wine & Grape lipstick & M.A.C's Retro Matte Ruby woo)

Simple does it,huh??You can also check out my previous post on my make up routine here.Enjoy the rest your day beautiful people.

Monday, September 22, 2014

Hello everyone!

Today's outfit post will have a little twist to it and am so excited about it!for the first time ever your favourite Kenyan fashion bloggers teamed up and we came up with our first challenge print on print.The idea was basically for each one of us to style an outfit with the main theme being  print on print.
Mixing up prints can be quite challenge but how we all mixed up our outfits will give you a rough idea on how to go about it next time you want to pull a print on print look.First off I will start with myself,for this challenge I went for the corporate look where I wore an animal print top and an Aztec bodycon skirt.Just perfect for the office and attending meetings.Check out how my fellow fashion bloggers styled theirs!
