Blessings for my new yr

My birthday was last month and I’m still assessing my intentions for my new yr. I had a birthday photoshoot featuring some of my latest designs and it was such a moment of pride for me.

The photoshoot meant a bit more to than my personal new year, but also everything that happened thus far that got to this point. Honestly I’ve never been one to celebrate my own victories, but that ends now. I’m making it a point to take a moment not only for praise but to reflect as well. I mean even if I wanted to take a pause to do a little victory dance theres nothing wrong with that either, it’s about time I celebrate the frustrations I overcome. Every moment counts #NoteToSelf πŸ“

The inspiration pulled for my Peau de Soie Satin gown, was #Garnet has the power to bestow eternal happiness, health and wealth, this #Aquarius birthstone develops confidence and self- esteem into the life of the wearer resulting in success and fulfilment of all desires.

My second look was an Ankara bustier complete with boning complimented with skirt pattern cutouts all thoughout.

This Ankara skirt was so much fun!! One of my top garments I ever enjoyed designing.

I will sure some intentions I currently have for my new year:

1. Continue to celebrate my personal victories, both large and small

2. Remain focused in all aspects of my creative process

3. TRUST THE PROCESS!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by,

❄ Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas β„

I had my first photo shoot for infant clothes, and I’m excited about how they turned out 😁

I created a circle skirt out of scuba & tulle. My darling little model is 3 months and she was pleased with the days adventure. πŸ’— surrounded in her very own personal Christmas Wonderland.

Naturals: What’s a good leave in that works with Eco Styler

​This may or may not be a silly question πŸ™ˆ

…Recently I started doing wash & go’s, although the amount of shrinkage has been reduced. Which I definitely do appreciate, thanks to Eco Styler. About 4 days in wasn’t exactly feeling my lack of hang time in the back & sides….. So I decided it would be a good idea to slap some Cantu & do Bantu knots on the fourth night to stretch out my curls a bit. BIG MISTAKE I had so much residue from the products trapped in my curls. 

Now I have no idea & am searching for the best combo of a leave in conditioner that will work well with Eco. So I can do Bantu knots, twist & braid outs to retain my length. 

My natural hair sistas I Need your help!!! 

Kuba Love 😍😍

Stumbled on these gems 😍😍😍 both are made out of Kuba cloth. The Kuba people adorn their garments with shells which is their currency. Kuba Kingdom is located in Central Africa, bordering Dem. Republic of the Congo.

& the cape doubles as a skirt, this deal just gets better & better 😄

I love gaining insight through experience,  especially when I’m learning through fashion. I am over the moon about these eclectic pieces. The fact that it encourages me to dive in & take a clearer look. I want to learn what’s the symbolism for the position of all the arrows, diamonds, fine lines etc. I want to research, learn about it all.

My excitement at this point is apparent. & whatever I find I sure will share with everyone

Thanks for stopping by
Peace & Love

Have a great day πŸ™‚
