Baby shower!

No I'm not expecting lol! Last week Saturday I went to one of my friends' baby shower. We had the do at the very beautiful Thornycroft Lodge and Spa a little outside East London. The place is away from all the noise in the city but not too far away. Perfect for that vacation feel but yet so close to reality, I hope that makes sense! lol.

The mommy to be Sethu looked gorgeous, giving mother earth vibes with her long dreadlocks and flow skirt.

I don't know why I have a 'not interested' face in this pic though

My 'fit for the day

How cute is this cake? peep the mommy with dreadlocks just like Sethu :)

Orange lips on brown skin

Hi dolls.

I've been loving orange lipstick for a while now but just couldn't find the perfect shade y skin tonefirst tried orange lips with Revlon Just Bitten Lip balm in Rendezvous but it was pigmented enough. I tried all the well know everyday beauty brands, L'Oreal, Revlon, Maybelline you name them with no luck. They eithere weren't vibrant enough of shimmery.  I really don't like shimmery lipstick, especially if it's a bright colour like Orange. I finally struck gold when I took sometime to check out each and every orange/coral lippie at Ralo Cosmetics! I finally found the perfect shade for me!

Finding photos of beautiful brown skin women wearing orange lipstick was as big a challenge as finding the lippie itself! but I did manage to fine a few on Tumblr.

last but not least, me wearing the lippie!

what do you think? will you be trying out orange lipstick? let me know :
