Yardley Stayfast Foundation Review


I've been using theYardley London Stayfast 24hour Foundation for a while now and have made review that does not share the sentiments of most people who have fallen in love with the product.
I don't mind that its thick but I find it a tad challenging to blend in and it tends to gather on my fine lines and make m pores and piples much more pronounced and brings much attention to them. I disagree with it 24 hour lasting claim and wearing high coverage foundation tends to cause it to get very cake. I gave this foundation a 7/10  score based soley on its own claims and price points however, I will not be purchasing it again. Watch the video below for more info.

Ladylike Strides

I'm quite positive my camera is broken

I'm someone who strongly believes that clothing carry and transmit other peoples troubles and bad mojo and am against wearing someone else's clothing. . .not that there was ever an opportunity to do so anyways because there just that aren't enough plus size women of my age in my life. However, when one of my ex flatmates rocked up at my place wearing the perfect Camo Jacket I wanted for a look in a post called green with envy, I threw caution to the wind and harassed her for it.

I keep the empties



I imagine that anybody who has seen as many marraiges, families, friends and peers perish to alcoholism as I have would naturally develop a personal level of disdain towards the substance. I never thought I'd be writing about liquor, let alone end up actually liking wines but here I am, full glass in hand on a saturday night. How did it come to this?

Rediscovering Port St Johns : The Wild Coast Jewel




When I was 18, I ripped my heart out of my chest and threw it into the Indian ocean; my home can’t possibly be where my heart is, I am no mam’lambo. Between the places my parents have rented and raised me in for the past 21 years and some change, my fathers paternal home in Lusikisiki where I’ve always felt out of place because of the ‘town kid’ priviledge treatment and my mothers maternal home in Tombo which I can’t really call home because my father wouldn’t be impressed, home is still a concept I haven’t quite mastered yet. I’ve always imagined myself buying myself a property somewhere around Port St Johns, putting my name on that title deed and waking up to the crowing of my chickens in the Hok every morning. How that’s going to happen with a Biochemistry oriented career is beyond me.

Green with envy




I used to have more luck finding clothing that fit me at Mr price and Factorie but that has changed recently. Either all my fellow plus size girls are snatching all those clothes up before I can can get my hands on them which I am here for because it'll mean yall are slaying, the clothing can sense how broke I am and don't want anything to do with me or I've gone beyond some sort of size limit I'm not aware of. Seeing smaller ladies effortlessly browsing through the isles and finding their picks with complete and utter ease makes me green with envy. Not that I have anything against them, absolutely not, go ahead on with your bad selves, snatch my edges. Its just that those mini heart attacks everytime I see something I like at the possibility of not finding my own size will get to me in the worst way sometimes.

Junkie Status Scrapped: a Hual



I went home for some healing from lifes hardships recently and when I Got home, my parents had a little surprise waiting for me, gift cards. Its been  over 8 months since I've hit the shops for anything and I'm surprised at how reasonably I spent my chankooras. I actually knew what I wanted to buy. I had a list and stuck to it and everything. I think this is what they call adulting. I think I'm no longer a stuff junkie.Man, Its been a while! My current financial situation has made shopping for clothing impossible in the last 8 months, so has my weight gain. Do you know just how much i wanted to rock the rock band oversized t-shirt + net stockings look? My band of choice was going to be Metallica. This fashion drought is a crime and will go unforgiven. See what I did there?lol.

Some more Pictures of people



To compensate for the blog post that was supposed to be about going home and giving you a non tourist perspective of what its like to be a Mpondo girl having grown up in Port St Johns in the Wild coast, I decided to post a few pictures I took of a Lovely lady who goes by @sunnishinecafe on instagram that had me nostalgic for the days and style of Aaliyah. Rest in peace baby girl.
Channeling Aaliyah is one of the tons of plussize outfit blog posts I have drafted, parked, and delayed because of a small I may have overlooked when purchasing my Nikon D3100, the camera doesn't come with a camerawoman.I really want to do these looks some justice you know*le sigh*.
