Hey lovelies. I’ve been wanting to put up a #powertothewoman post for a while now. There are so many things happening around me that I’ve been wanting to discuss here with you guys. I just didn’t know the best way to bring it out in my writing. I guess you could say I was going through a mini writer’s block of some sort. However, today I decided to just start off writing and figured that everything else would sort itself out.

I have a new idea that I want to share with you guys. In my little way of trying to uplift women from all over the world, I thought it would be cool to showcase different cultures of women in my style posts. This way, I hope to inspire women to love themselves in their own skin and know that they are beautiful and that they matter regardless of race or culture.

Obviously the first woman I had to imitate was the African woman because I mean, I am African and my message of women empowerment starts at home. For this post, I chose a rather general look and not one that was specific to any African country..(specific posts will come soon though) I wore a simple modern black dress from Mr Price which I accessorised with African jewellery. Because lets be honest, us Africans kill it in the accessories department. I wore a huge red turban made out of a Maasai shawl on my head and a beaded South African neckpiece from Enkaya Designs which is an upcoming jewellery label. They have the most gorgeous pieces. Check them out on Facebook. For my make up, you guys probably know I’m nowhere close to being a guru in that department but thought I should bring out some sort of African artwork on my face. Africans traditionally would paint decorations on their faces as a sign of beauty during special occasions like marriage. I thus used my baby sister’s water colours and got to work. Here’s the full look.
