The hottest ring of 2012 for African warrior princesses!

Ring by Mawi – £392.00

What do you think?

My thoughts: I spotted this on Mawi’s website and I love it! I’m going through a jewellery obsession at the moment – it looks like a ring a warrior princess in KwaZulu Natal would wear when she is handling business!

Closet Purge

This weekend I decided it was time to do a closet purge, which consist of me going through my closet and deciding it was time to part with clothing, shoes and purses. Because I know it’s so hard for me to part with my clothing and other items I had to come up with a plan. I decided in the next 5 weeks I would pick 3 items from 5 different categories to sell on eBay. The 5 categories include:

  1. Dresses
  2. Shoes
  3. Skirts
  4. Jeans
  5. Purses

Whatever I don’t sell I will give to friends, family, thrift store depending on the item. This week I picked out three dresses to part with and this is what I considered:

  1. Can I fit the item?
  2. When’s the last time I wore it?
  3. Do I still like it?


Here are the three dresses I put up on eBay; these items will be on here for one week.

1. Old Prom Dress from 2005

2. Hot Pink Animal Print Party Dress

3. Black and White Shift Dress

Top 2 high heels to break through boardmeetings and glass ceilings!

Shoes are an addiction for me. The way your toes can look as round as the moon in a pair of heels is not matched by other types of shoes. The following shoes I have picked scream sex appeal and high-heeled luxury for businesswomen or women who want that power business look for their downtime.

[2] YSL Trib Toos (Beyoncé is wearing them in mock-croc brown below)

Do you think high heels are appropriate for where you work or are you a ballerina girl?

Business Notes: Why businesswomen should stand out with hot beauty products (3+ pix)

Products I used for the spread: Carmex Lip Balm & Collection 2000 Lipgloss

Every day when I am going to work, I have noticed that my beauty regime has changed. I have not worn foundation in a while, but instead I have put the focus on my lips. The products I use are the ones I took in the spread and they make my lips look plump which is something I love. I am a bit of maverick when it comes to looks for business + work and yes shiny lips and lipstick is not something the conservative style heads for business would suggest but if you are starting your own business or you are a consultant, try something new and go against matte! This is why I believe women in business should stand out against the conservative nature of fashion and beauty and look sparkling and bubbly.

Do you think businesswomen should be more conservative or be more unique in their beauty + fashion image? Would it be bad for business to be sultry?

What do you think of the clutch — is it lovely or terrible?
