HAVE A GREAT DAY! Ciao darlings! xoxo Portia THANKS FOR VISTING MY BLOG.
Braids are very in right now...and I love it! There's a dozen reasons why I love braids..its convenient, easy-to-maintain and cost-effective. With the approaching rains, it makes for an even better hairstyle because it requires zero fussing even when beaten by the rain.
But as with every hairstyle, wearing the same look for an extended period of time can get boring and tiring and its no different with braids...well not anymore! Gone are the days when ladies wore their box braids packed in a bun everyday. With celebrities like Beyonce and Solange stepping out in stylish braids, more and more ladies are getting adventurous and trying out various exciting styles. I found a few of such pictures showing several creative ways you can pack your braids and decided to share.
I wore this ensemble for the first time about 2years ago back in uni, same shirt, same pants and same shoe.
I re-rocked it on the last day on 2013. Its a very simple outfit but the colors made it look more!
I love high-waisted pants or skirts cos they always give this retro vibe. Still hoping and praying for a smaller waist and a flatter tummy to rock the hell outta them! lol
My birthday's in less than 2 weeks and I'm excited for reasons I don't even know. I rarely make plans for my birthday but I'm really looking forward to this year's.
As I got myself my most wanted item (Canon EOS 550D) for Xmas last year, I decided not to get anything new for myself until further notice. So I stayed away from my usual online shop browsing, 'thou shalt not tempt thyself'.
But a girl would always be a girl, I couldn't resist taking a peek through my fav online stores. Here are a few of the items I'm presently craving.
