POWER DRESSING

_71C6235~2

Originally, Power Dressing is a fashion style that enables women to establish their authority in a professional & political environment, traditionally dominated by men.

However for me, it’s a feeling, a mood. It results after you are fearless with your choice of dressing.It’s believing in your aura, your feminine energy and wearing whatever outfit you choose regardless of the existing opinions around it. It’s saying,’ I know people think this belongs to women of an older generation’ …’People think that wearing this makes me a lesser woman’! But I choose to wear it. It’s ignoring all that,and making it all about you. Embracing what makes you feel whatever feeling it is you are looking for. On that note, look at Theresa May, Britain prime minister’s style.She’s refused to admit that fashion is irreconcilable with caring about,say,nuclear policy and in doing so she’s setting precedent that allows women to show a facet of their persona which otherwise could be denied without it undermining expectations.

That said, how gorgeous is this ankara belt though! It’s from my collection and comes in both Ankara and Leather! How cool, right?! I am aware that younger girls shy off from ankara, but I assure my fellow ankara lovers, it comes down to how it makes you feel. Therefore if you feel fabulous in ankara, please rock it! By all means possible!

Meanwhile, see how I changed my rather boring outfit into this powerful ‘power dress’ using my ankara belt!

Thanks for visiting, stay fabulous!

SERENITY AND WHITES

IMG_20160712_100053

There’s just some level of serenity that comes with whites.I know I know some of us are super conscious whenever we wear white worried sick you could stain it anytime. Personally I take my chances, all white err’thing any day!!!

Now that am talking about serenity I’m tempted to talk about meditation. I did silently promise myself not to talk about it,at least not in this post.These two are cousins though, so why not!

Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefits (which are vast by the way) or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content or as an end in itself.

I have been practicing meditation for a while, and to be honest I couldn’t be more content with myself. Am talking decreased anxiety & stress,increased creativity,gaining clarity and peace of mind, focus…I could go on and on and on. But am limiting myself to those benefits am experiencing personally as of now. There exists a lot more benefits, usually requiring deeper meditation,one that goes with attention,duration and attaching sensation to our desires.

This is a very wide topic, which I intend to cover sometime when I am quite successfulūüėČ (aka more visible results). The power of belief,visualization & intention is as real as it gets. Successful people all over the world have a way of thinking, purpose to develop your own way of thinking and unleash power within you.

Thank you so much for visiting, and more so reading this article.
