Spring Cleaning : How To Care For Your Jewellery

         How To Care For Your Jewellery To Enhance Wearing Pleasure

I am  a huge fashion accessories junkie and I absolutely adore jewellery. However, storing and caring for my accessories has always been a problem. I remember when I was in high school, I used to collect my mothers shoe boxes and use them as storage for my accessories. And then, planning an outfit and then you realise your jewellery has been tarnished or a crystal fell off, sounds familiar?  At first it was some what frustrating but then I grew up, I guess we can all relate to this, ladies.

I started buying jewellery bags and re-sealable bags to store my jewellery and spring clean my jewellery often, I must say the difference was clear. This opens the topic for todays post. "How often do you care for your jewellery and fashion accessories?" We make sure our clothes and shoes are clean and well kept but how often do we clean our jewellery?

Even if it is not real gold or silver your accessories need to be cared for regardless of the value. Skin, moisturiser, perfume or grease contributes to jewellery or accessories appearing dull and tarnished. The sparkle fades from lack of not cleaning and caring enough for jewellery, but everyone is guilty of this.

Tip number 1, always sort and spring clean your jewellery often, at least once a month. Please be aware that real gold and costume gold are cleaned differently, research on how to care for what type of jewellery you are about to clean. I can advise the best way to go about caring for your jewellery is to store in dry area and clean with dry clothe after use.

I guess the most important way to care for your jewellery is simply paying some attention and some TLC. Please see below a few tips on how to enhance your wearing pleasure by caring for your jewellery and accessories, ladies!.

DIY Jewellery Cards

                                                            Exploring My Creativity

Recently I have been very busy building on my project (LaDivalicious Pieces) and it has been an emotional and intriguing journey so far. Starting a project or business can be very exciting, especially when you have a flare for it and enjoy it. I must say it has been very exciting, tasking to the "T",  time consuming and it doesn't help that I pay attention to detail .

Packaging is very essential when it comes to fashion, at least, that is my own personal opinion. Although some people don't pay attention to the little details but if your item came packaged elegantly, surely you would notice, right?

So It has been very tasking finding the right jewellery cards, packaging and tags for my fashion accessories. At first I didn't mind the thought of the search for my perfect packaging supplies and I was excited. But when I searched all week and I wasn't contented with what I saw then I started getting worried, I was behind on my order, my to do list.

My "to do list" wasn't happy either...I asked myself the question..can I do this myself? At least on a small scale for now. And then I thought, why not explore the possibilities of what I can create and then I got started.

I got supplies, the glue is very essential for this because you want it as smooth as possible. Please see below for pictures, the list and how you can find the fashion accessories I sell.

What To Get

1. Card Board
2. Glue
3. Scissors
4. Ruler
5. Wrapping paper / Tissue wrapping paper
6. Stapler

Measure and Cut the wrapping paper or tissue wrapping paper and cardboard into squares mirroring the papers in the pictures above. Use the glue to secure the cardboard on the wrapping paper before creating the jewellery card, as seen in the picture below.


Use the scissors to cut by the sides of the wrapping paper and fold according as seen in the first picture. And when you are through, use the glue to secure and then fold the wrapping paper in place.


When the wrapping paper is in place, staple the long end of the wrapping paper on to the cardboard part of the wrapping paper securely. Thank you for taking your time to read and share this experience with me.

Please have a look at the picture below for my instagram and websites you can purchase my selection of fashion accessories.

Stay Fabulous.. x

Hair Bun Styles

So lately I have been thinking about doing something different to my hair. And I am at that stage where I have done every hairstyle I can think about and now I am bored of it.

Don't say...oh, why don't you wear your natural hair...Umm hello, NO! I don't think so. Handling my natural hair doesn't come easy for me. I mean surely we all can't be good at everything, although, if I could get a hair dresser to comb my natural hair and style it everyday, that would be a dream.

Ok, back to the hair bun hairstyle, so I decided to get a bun done but this time not my ordinary natural hair bun hairstyle that I do right infront of my mirror but professionally done by my favourite hair dresser. Although I can't help but wonder how long I can pull it of for. The reason I am wondering is because compared to using my natural hair, if my hair gets rough I can always redo. But if I get it done at hairdressers it's a total different story, #gameover. Unfortunately, I won't be able to fix it by myself, I thought I post DIY Hair Bun Styles below (enjoy) 

Recently I have been searching different type of hair buns styles and I can't seem to make up my mind which one to go for. There is a wide variety out there, different styles and even unique ones too, like having a fringe or plaits added for a bit of style. "Ladies always aspire to differ, following the same fashion trends is like not having a unique style of your own"...Ladivalicous.

If you notice the third picture below has Plaits added to the hair bun and I totally love that idea. 

So I created a collage of different hair bun styles to share.

Ladies with short hair, don't feel you cant join in on the fun. Get some tracks done, my sister has a short cut and she doesn't hold back. 

Two celebrities that really pull of the hair bun hairstyle for me are Kim Kardarshian and Jennifer Lopez. JLo's hairstyles appear so classy and sexy, I can't help but fall in love and imagine I looked that hot lol.

And she carries her hair crown so elegantly. I usually like to do my hair bun right at the top mid part of my head but if I am going to hairdressers what is the point, that will be a total waste to get the same style I do by myself, boring. And a waste of my money if you ask me hence the confusion and exploring different styles.  

In the end I finally found which style I wanted, I am going for one that I can handle and will at least last for some time. I have my hair appointment in 2 weeks so look out for when I upload the picture of how hot my hair journey turned out, fingers crossed! (Stay Tuned) 

Guess which one I chose from the picture above??? 

Cheers Mates!

Bendy Roller Drama

Ladies Ladies Ladies, Do you hate it when you wake up in the morning and you have a banging headache? Then you think back and remember you had absulolutely nothing to drink last, opps hello! It's the bendy rollers. 

OMG I woke up this morning with a "HEADACHE" and I touch my head and there it was my bendy rollers and then my neck began to ache like I slept with my neck dangling off the bed...smh...

So I decided to blog about my bendy rollers, although it is much needed to make my hair look absolutely fab but I can't help but complain at the same time about how much pain I get just because I want my hair to look curly and bouncy. Take about the curse and the pain of being a woman. 
And to make matters worse I never take off my bendy rollers until I am practically out of the door for the fear of my curls getting loose and bailing out on me before I get to flaunt it. So I had a barbecue party to attend...I woke up...yeah with a headache and neck aches...had a shower, slapped my makeup on loool eyelashes and then dress up.

I say 'slap' because in this case I took my time to cake up, you know when you want to look absolutely flawless? Well ladies that was the look I was going for, I wouldn't normally cake up especially to go to work, shopping or just chill

Most times I have no make up on but I don't feel obliged to paste before and after pictures because I am not some make up artist and I have nothing to prove to my audience.. I am just me :p I'm on one love! 

Ladies I have to make up a way we don't have to sleep everyday with bendy rollers...like, your girl is going to put the ordinary bendy roller makers out of business. Just stay tuned and watch out, I just might surprise you, syke! Oh well I wanted to share that annoying moment with you and I am sure most ladies can relate to my pain. I guess I will have a glass of wine for the pain lol. 

Check out the final look below, cheers..

Are You Living A Fake Social Media Life

So while having my monthly grooming at the salon (hair nails massage and wax) it came to my attention that people live false life's on social media.

I read an article in Look Magazine UK about the stress, pretence and effort put into living a fake social media life. I mean you should know the amount of time and energy put into being something you are not compared to all the time put into getting the right picture, cropping, filtering and pasting the pictures to appear cool! 

I say if it is "Fake" then YOU are NOT "Cool" loool I laugh out loud because I can't imagine why? Why you would bother, why you would have such time and if you have some kind of complex? 

Surely you must feel confident in yourself to believe or not give a damn about what people think, right? 

Oh well it's just a bit sad and yet almost unbelievable, call me naive but I never thought it would get to this. Maybe some people are not happy with themselves that they have to go through measures to  painting a differnt picture. 

My advise is love yourself more.... "Drops Mic!" 

What's your opinion if you care to give 💋

Jay Z and Solange Damage Control or Not

Ok so I know this is old news and people are probably moving on from it but I couldn't help but blog about this juicy story when I saw a picture last night (please see below).

So there has been a lot of speculation and different stories to Chun Solange and Jay Z's awkward moment in the lift. Some say it was Jay Z's fault (please appreciate I am holding back because beyonces fans are watching lol), some other people say Chun Solange was standing up for her sister...what do you think? What would make Chun Solange disrespect Hova in front of Queen Beyonce?

Although I love to mind my business and not give in to gossip about other people but I can't help but wonder, guess or assume what possibly went down in the lift. However, back to why I am blogging about this rinsed out topic, would you call the picture of the "Happy Family Pose" damage control or not? But surely both families are entitled to keep their business or differences to themselves, right? 

The pictures going round doesn't help the curiousity brewing that most people forget that everyone, celebrity or not is entitled to their privacy. (See pictures below

Oh well forgive me for being curious but y'll need to take a step back and drop it, however, the funny pictures are hilarious. Social media will never stop and think how this may affect Beyonce's marriage and how many times she will have to comfort Jay Z about the situation. For the audience who love juicy news, this is just another entertaining part of a celebrity's life........

Oops! Just one last time..

2014 Hello, So I Am Back

Hello World!, so I took time out to concerntrate on me, I took time out to concerntrate on myself, I took time out to grow as an adult, I took time out to grow as an individual,I took time out to find myself, who I am...

I have missed blogging a whole lot, I have had opinions and ideas cooking up in my head and I bet my other half is tired of hearing me talk non-stop lol. Sometimes a blogger has to take a step back, I had to take a step back to discover myself and my purpose on earth...yeah!!!, as deep as that sounds and funny but actually true. 

Blogging...Blogging is like my first love, I always loved to write, from poems to pouring my heart out since I got my first diary. I have always been interested in the use of words, expressions, literature or anything creative. My mum always encouraged me to write down what I feel, she got me my first diary, I still have all my diaries and reading random pages from them makes me smile. 

To cut the long story short I am glad to be back to blogging and I am very excited!!!
