Jackie Aina is Launching Forvr Mood

Jackie Aina created a brand (finally) and it’s called Forvr Mood. I’m super proud of Jackie and all that she’s accomplished thus far. From her incredibly successful youtube channel to her Artist Couture Collab and Anastasia Beverly Hills collab and now her own brand! I feel like a proud sister! I’ve watched Jackie Aina on YouTube since my early college years when she slayed her face while still being in the military. Its so refreshing to see how far she’s come. We don’t know what Forvr Mood will entail as…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Vol 4 vs Makeup Revolution x Patricia Bright

ABH Novina Vol 4 vs Makeup Revolution x Patricia Bright -Befitting Style

I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Volume 4 palette a few weeks ago and it finally arrived last week. I honestly didn’t have much interest in trying the palette anymore and I only purchased it because my only other experience with the brand is their collaboration with Jackie Aina. Although I only want to focus on black-owned brands, I decided to have a bit of fun with the review by comparing it to the Makeup Revolution x Patricia Bright Rich in Colour palette as it they have some similar…

Nigerian Independence Celebration – Ankara Dress

It’s been a while since I actually celebrated Nigerian Independence Day publicly as I find it easier to be in my own little world (which is usually my default). In my early 20s, I would attend the parades as well as the parties. While I didn’t partake in any parade this year, I popped up at one of the parties. Being the super last minute person that I am, I began making this dress the night before the party, even though I bought the ankara fabric a week before the…

Keeping Neon Alive

Besides how amazing it looks on darker skin tones like mine, the light and airy shade also easily pairs with a variety of items as peach is often mixed and matched with a variety of colors. For this look, I kept it simple with a neutral skirt. Of course peach is the perfect contract for thes maroon braids! As I prepare for the fall, I’m excited to see my hair again. It feels like I’ve had these braids this…
