Street Fashion Part 1 | San Diego

Please tell me I am not the only one who loves San Diego?

Today I am sharing another huge friendly outfit but today, we are taking it to the streets. If you know me, I am all about street fashion and looking AMAZING without breaking the bank. I will be sharing some of my favourite "street fashion" pieces that look stylish but also conformable while site seeing around San Diego. You never know who's eye you catch...


If you follow me on Social Media, you would know that I am a big lover for sneakers and American Eagle jeans. They are the only jeans you will ever need in your closet and they last forever!


As per usual, I am wearing something borrowed but I managed to find a similar jean jacket for you guys. 
Jeans are from my favourite store American Eagle (who doesn't love them?) 
Sneakers are from Converse factory store And as you all know shades were from PB, San Diego (Pacific Beach).
My white tee is from Guess. This tee is so cute and comfy and you can never go wrong with jeans and a white tee.



Traveling isn't always that glamorous but it sure isn't an excuse for looking boring. Which means most of the time when I am traveling, I always make sure I have something casual and cute on while feeling confident in it. And when I take pictures of places I prefer to be comfortable.


Overall I love this outfit as it was well in my budget and affordable. For accessories I kept it very simple. A brown watch from Target, satchel from Forever21 and sunglasses from a store in Pacific Beach.


What is your favourite piece from this outfit?

A big thank you to my friend Danne from Moments Captured for the amazing pictures. Edits done by me, Gillian. Be sure to check out her instagram to see some more amazing images that she has captured.

Get Your Bright On | Farmacy Beauty Review

This post may contain affiliated links

Can you believe it is already August? What happened to the year? 

With fall approaching I want to make sure that my skin is fall ready and that it will stay bright and hydrated throughout the season changes. And that is why I was so happy when Influester sent me the Farmacy Beauty Bright On Face Mask complimentary.



More about Farmacy Beauty:

Farmacy Beauty uses the plant Enchinacea Green Envy to formulate their products. This makes their products vegan, which probably will make a lot of millennials very happy. Personally I am not vegan but I have noticed that some of my vegan products seem to be very gentle on my face. You can read more about Farmacy's products on their website.



Farmacy Bright On Face Mask:

The Bright On Face Mask contains vitamin C that instantly brightens up your face. The mask is massage activated and changes colours, now that is fancy. This makes it so much easier to know when the mask is fully activated and working. What I also noticed and liked is that the Bright On Face Mask is a clay based mask but yet so light and gentle when applying. 

Tips on using the Farmacy Bright On Face Mask:

  1. Use on a freshly washed face.  Do not apply any toner or cream on your face after washing it. 
  2. Put a generous amount of the Bright On Face Mask on your index finger and gently dab it on your face. (Forehead, cheeks, jawline, chin and nose)
  3. In a circular motion, start massaging the face mask into your face. It will start changing colours (from green to purple). This indicates that it is activated.
  4. Leave on for 5-10 min (depending on how sensitive your skin is). 
  5. Rinse off with luke warm water and let your face air dry. 
  6. Continue your skincare routine as per usual. 
  7. Use twice per week. (Wednesday and Sunday)
  8. It works best when applied at night as that is where your face is more relaxed.

Results:

After using the Bright On Face Mask three times; I have noticed my skin getting brighter and it sure feels like it is getting the detox it needs. My pimples are busy disappearing and my face feels so smooth. I will continue using the Bright On Face Mask for a month and compared the outcome. I can only imagine it will be a great out come.


Farmacy Beauty have really out done themselves with this mask. It is everything my face needs and deserves. Be sure to check out the Bright On Face Mask and get yourself one. You won't be sorry!

Be yourself today. You look beautiful like that way.

Belated Birthday Outfit

So... By now if you know me, you would know that I run on African time and I have been pretty busy with figuring out life and traveling. But once again that is not an excuse.

Finally I am bringing you my outfit that I rocked on my birthday which was in April (please don't hate me). Guess this is what they call "Fashionably late"?

For my birthday outfit, I was all about white and black. Because I had just 25 and I was not ready for it! So my colours where very mellow and represented the way I felt and how I saw turning 25 years old. There was no gray area to that.
The top was from Papaya. I love the fit of this top as it was a half sleeve top. Because of the weather we had in California during the month of April, this was the perfect top for a day/night out. I was unable to find the exact top, but still found a similar style with short sleeves. Ready for those summer days.

The detail was very simple and yet elegant. Which worked out perfectly because as we all know I love looking good on a budget!

Now, let's talk about these pants!

Photographer: Danne Lues
Fam, I have started to love wide leg extra long pants. Yes I am tall but these pants gave me an extra height that I loved. It was so well fitting and they were high waisted. I mean what else can a girl ask for?

Photographer: Danne Lues
They didn't have the exact pants but I found similar pants that will pair nicely with the top.

Black heels were a gift from my friend.

Clutch bag was from Guess Factory store. Yes you read correctly, factory store. What I loved about the bag was how spacious it was. I bought this bag just over a year ago. But don't worry, I got your back and was once again I found something similar for you all.


I am sure you are dying to know how much this whole outfit cost me. (Drum roll please) It cost me $30.00 (excluding tax, the shoes and clutch).

Now that is what I call budget shopping on another level. 

My hair is from Samsbeauty and I did a review on the wig, so be sure to check it out.

Whiter Teeth at Home?

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post by Smile Brilliant but all opinions are my own.

Have you ever wanted whiter teeth but your budget just didn't allow it? I feel you because
that use to be me, until Smile Brilliant reached out and helped me to make my teeth white
again. The best part of it all is: I could do it in the comfort of my own bed.


Red wine, coffee and tea are just a few things that can stain your teeth over a course of
time. And that is where Smile Brilliant teeth whitening comes in. It whitens your teeth and
also protects it from getting stained again. Be sure to watch my previous video showing the
whole process.

What I like about Smile Brilliant teeth whitening; is the fact that I can do it at home or while
running errands, so easy to use, results do show over a period and you can continue using it
whenever you feel like you need a lil pick me up. Oh and before I forget, it is super
affordable and a little goes a long way.


But with all that being said, you know your girl keeps it real. When I started the process, my
gums started burning. Which lead to me stopping to use the teeth whitening for a couple of
days. I then went back again and the same thing happened. I reached out to one of the
Smile Brilliant consultants and they informed me to rub vaseline on my gums before I start
the process. It really helped and made the process so much easier.


All in all, Smile Brilliant at home teeth whitening is amazing! And I would recommend it to
everyone!


So what are you waiting for? Get those pearly whites ready for summer!
