OOTD: Why You Need a Faux Fur Coat & Tips for Purchasing One

IMG_3117

For the past six years, in the grand scheme of things, faux fur coats have graduated from being a 2011 comeback trend to a wardrobe staple. Personally, I have three faux fur coats (I also have one gilet, but we are specifically talking coats here) and if it were up to me I’d have ten more. I’m super fussy with the coats I buy, but when I find them, I live in them. Here’s why:

My FULL Work History – From A Not So Glamorous Start To A Girl Boss

IMG_8767

I’ve been blogging for a really long time. So long I actually surprised myself, because since I was really young I got bored so easily and went through every phase under the sun. Through documenting so much over the past seven years I’ve come to know a few things about myself and my peers, and if you share those common traits or you’re feeling a little lost career-wise, this may just help you feel little less alone or surprise you in hearing my story. Times are tough in the job market, and they have been for a while. I know so many educated people who just can’t find work. I’ve heard of so many parents getting frustrated at their young-adult kids because they paid for their education and they just can’t get their careers started. It’s so easy to think myself or others get it easy or have always had life figured out, but so often there’s a whole side of people’s lives or history that’s not as fabulous as their Instagram feed. But I’m here to confirm, life really doesn’t work in a fabulous way.

How To Match Your Significant Other Without Looking Lame

IMG_2762

Throughout my life I always loved playing dress-up with my besties, and I love that as a grown-up, as manly as he is, my husband is now undoubtedly that bestie. Also let’s be honest here; we all had moments where we low key enjoyed being matchy-matchy with our significant other or friend, even if it was just a matter of wearing the same shoes. Wearing matching outfits has unintentionally become a somewhat normal practice for Malick and I. It comes pretty naturally but even so, it can look cheesy, and I’ve had moments where I’ve insisted one of us change because it’s a little too much! So here are a few guidelines to help you look like a cool collective and not like twinzies. (more…)

Huawei P10 Smartphone: A Great Phone for Instagrammers? – A Camera Test by Malick

IMG_2381

Hey everyone, Abdul-Malick here. You guys might know me as Aqeelah’s husband and also the guy behind the lens of Fashion Breed’s photography. That being said, Huawei sent us the latest Huawei P10 smartphone to try out, since they partnered with Leica to create a powerful camera. We receive a lot of questions asking about the images we create, with one of them being which phone is a great option for a newbie Instagrammer, we decided to put the Huawei P10 camera to the test to answer your question. With Huawei aiming to live up to their reputation of being the “Master of Portraiture Photography”, and Leica having a reputation as the world’s best lens-maker, naturally, I was pretty excited to try and shoot some typical Instagram content with this phone.

Statement Earrings You Should Totally Try

IMG_2463

Statement earrings have been major for quite some time now, and I recently picked up these four pairs which I’ve been rotating with so many of my outfits, especially when they seem a little lacklustre. I’ve always been a statement earring kinda girl and years ago I would head to the Indian trade fairs when they would come to Cape Town because they always had the biggest and most OTT earrings you could possibly imagine! Thankfully, a girl doesn’t have to make seasonal missions anymore or always wear something that big for an impact. (more…)
