SLIDER

Every day we work hard, we do something same way or differently. We want to be better and we always get lesser or more, nevertheless keep pushing. I will not tell you there is light at the end of the tunnel because you might just get your breakthrough by the roadside.

Must-have Ankara style trench coats that will upgrade your style

30 comments


Ankara fashion is all over Instagram. Not only Africans are obsessed with the unique fashion style, which is not surprising because Ankara fabrics have very unique print styles. They are very fashionable and make a loud style statement. Wonder how a trench coat can change your whole look in seconds? I have worn this trench coat to different places and the responses are always unique. This art print of red jumping horses made me want the Kira trench dress in different colors. African fashion, style, dance, and music are taking over the world. Fashion houses and designers are putting the Ankara fabric into more valuable style use. A lot of designers are creating more English styles with Ankara fabrics. Years back, Ankara fabrics were mostly worn or tailored to portray the traditional African style which I also love, but the diversity in style is also a great idea. 



Tufafii is a standout made of Africa clothing representing made in Africa and I am so proud to be wearing this unique design. This designer has a large supply of any fabric and clothing representing Africa. A large clothing supply that includes, blouses, jackets, trench coats, pants, skirts, jumpsuits, and dresses. Ankara Bags and scarves are also available for purchase worldwide.  Men are not left out. The Tufafiiman collection is also available for purchase.


Wina Dress
The Wina Dress is a wrap maxi dress with Long Sleeves and a tie belt around the waist. It has a big sleeve which makes it even more unique.


Kira trench dress
Tufafii Kira trench dress is very artistic. I first wore it to a praise night at a church gathering and everyone loved it. It is neatly stitched and the length is perfect. Being that the prints already speaks for itself, I added fewer accessories to keep it simple. The jessicaburrman genna crocodile skin bag is a perfect match.

Get in Shape With 9 Easy Rules To Follow

8 comments


Everybody wants to be in shape, yet not everybody is in shape, so what gives? It turns out that reaching whatever our fitness goals are isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. Indeed, sometimes it feels like the hardest. We’re constantly coming up against barriers that bump our health and fitness targets further down the priority list. And then there’s the matter of, well, not really knowing what to do even if we are motivated. If you’re struggling to get in shape for whatever reason, take a look at following the rules that we’ve outlined below. 



Find an Activity You Like
Some people genuinely are motivated to get in shape and join a gym to prove it. But in many cases a problem quickly presents itself: they find out that there’s a reason why gyms have a bad reputation. They’re boring. It’s hard to stay motivated when you’re wishing you were doing anything else. As such, it’s recommended that instead of going straight for the gym and the like, look at getting in shape by doing something that you like. Playing a sport might not be better than the gym by itself, but it’ll be much better to play an hour of that sport than lasting just fifteen minutes in the gym.

And Make It Easy
Whatever you’re doing, be it running or visiting the gym or anything else, you’ll need all the help you can get to ensure that you actually do it. Vague plans don’t work. If you say you’ll go in the morning, you’ll convince yourself that the extra time in bed is better. If you say you’ll go after work, you’ll say you’re too tired. As such, work on making it as easy as you can for yourself. If you want to go in the morning, then lay out all of your clothes and equipment before you go to bed. When you wake, you’ll just need to take that one step out of bed, and you’ll be on your way. In general, it’s best to completely ignore the voice in your mind that says “you can also go tomorrow…” and just go ahead and do it. 

Sleep Well
When people talk about getting in shape, they’re usually exclusively focused on eating well and exercising. But there’s another factor that’s arguably just as important: sleeping. This plays a huge role in our ability to keep our weight down, and also to have the energy we need to work out to the best of our ability. The hormone changes that lack of sleep causes means we end up eating more. So if you’re serious about getting into a fit and healthy state, then focus on your sleep routine and habits

Set a Target
Even people who are generally motivated to visit the gym and the like can lose interest in a while, and it’s because of one simple reason: they don’t have a target in mind. It’s like anything. If you go for a walk without an aim in mind, you’ll just turn around when you lose some interest in the process. If you knew you were trying to reach a particularly beautiful spot, then you’d ride out the boredom, and carry on walking. The same applies to fitness. It doesn’t matter so much what the goal is, so long as you have something in mind when you begin. It’ll help to keep you focused.

How to style a wrap snake print dress: Overcome ophidiophobia, the fear of snakes.

22 comments

There are different ways to style snake prints. You must have seen celebrities like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and lots more wearing a snake print design, either in a music video or in a public appearance. Snake print got really trendy and every IT girl and fashionista enjoyed styling it except me because I get easily irritated by a snake. The imagination of a snake close to my skin keeps coming to my mind each time I see snake print fabric. I decided to overcome my fear and phobia and look how flawlessly sexy I look wearing a snake print.  





How to overcome the fear of snakes (ophiophobia).

Ophidiophobia, or ophiophobia, is a phobia which relates to the fear of snakes. It is said to be abnormal but I think no one wants a snake around him or her. I will like to say that this is not as easy as I make it seem. I still have a very strong phobia I am battling with but I had to overcome it just because I wanted to try out the snake print trend. Aminals prints such as zebra print, leopard and fish prints do not affect me so I was super excited to always wear them.

Each time I see the picture snakes on the internet the mood changes, I get so irritated and disgusted, fear comes in, I start imagining things. I had to overcome my fears because I really wanted to feature styling tips on how to wear snake print.

1. It is all about you, only you can decide how this can work with your mind. Be in control of your thoughts.

2. It's all in your mind. Our weak thoughts are developed when we allow a weak flow towards a particular subject. Try to channel your thoughts into the stronger part when you start thinking about snakes.

3. Don't over think it. In as much as we can not control some thoughts but we can kill thoughts and control them in a way. Do not let these thought grow. They grow and you keep imagining the deadly things snakes can do. Keep your mind free and clean from those thoughts.

4. Try to Speak to yourself. Step on it in your head, it is only a print.

5. Try to feel it more often to keep you aware that it's just a piece of fabric and that's what it will be.


How to style snake print
Styling snake print is very easy because it is already a detailed fabric, tho you can easily go wrong with it. Here are 5 tips to keep in mind when styling snake print. This applies to all animal prints.

1. Keep your accessories simple.

2. Burgundy color suits snake print. Add a touch of burgundy, it is never a bad idea.
3. A black bag is always a perfect idea.

4. Stilettos make you look sexier, simple and effortless.

5 Show some skin.

7. Cow prints match with snake prints. Both stand out giving a more artistic view and style statement.

6. Your pose and attitude when wearing snake print matters. It is a bold print so if you go bold, be ready to put on a bold and fierce attitude.

Motivational Thursday : Imbalance, touching fire and conquering

3 comments

Life is full of deep questions that are yet to be answered. Why do we do the things we do, knowing that they are capable of making or destroying us. Sometimes it not about the act, it is about the mind, it plays us, it's like a team of people at a football field looking for the best way to conquer and be victorious, but solving and planning the victory gets complicated and only the strong can sail through.

Life sometimes pushes us to a state of imbalance, how do you explain touching fire without getting burnt. Our decisions are open to where we go, who we hang out with, what we think about and what we live for. Let it be meaningful, fulfilling and approachable. Something you will be able to be proud of, so at the end of the day, you can stand high and say yes I did it no matter what came my way.

Travel and 20 different reasons that inspires it

10 comments

Travel is a lifestyle. So many people enjoy traveling but at the end of the day what makes traveling powerful are the different things and reasons it fulfills in the life of everyone. This is to say that people travel for different reasons and here the most outstanding reasons why people travel.

To find yourself
Finding yourself is very important in life. It takes you through a process of discovering and rediscovering yourself. It puts your life together and fixes those puzzles which needed to be fixed.

To get inspired
People get inspired by different things, for some its the big city, the architectural view, nature,  people, while for some it's culture. A writer feeds on natures view to get inspired, a storyteller travels to different places to meet people, get to know them, sometimes to draw a conclusion on a storyline or to write a new story, whatever inspires you is valued and travel can play a great role in directing you towards getting inspired.

Medical reasons
In as much as every country is supposed to make provision for adequate and standard healthcare system for the assessment of its citizens but it is so unfortunate that some countries have failed in that aspect. Certain medical facilities can be found in countries like India and the USA and so people travel to get the best health services. 





To run away from crime
Well, this might seem a little out of context but this is another reason why people travel. When a crime is committed the police goes after the offender depending on the case. Some offenders travel to allow things to die down a bit before coming back into the country, some never come back.

To study
Very common, people travel to another city or country to acquire knowledge. 

To find love
Some people are disappointed about the way love has treated them in the past and so they go on an adventure to find love in an unknown destination where no one knows them.

For work purpose
In as much as you prefer to work in your country, some don't and it's not because of the bad pay but because they want to experience what it feels like working for a different set of people or how to work for a different set of people. 

To experience a new culture 
When you travel outside your country or state you experience a new culture. We are all different in a unique way so is our culture. Travel allows you to experience the dance, music, fashion, food, and lifestyle of other people. 

Meet people new people
Are you bad at making friends? well, travel gives you a room to improve on that. You get to meet new people, some walk up to you, while some just happen to need directions explained. We meet people in different ways and travel is a doorway to that. You make new friends and even get a good travel partner in the process to explore the world with you.
