Nudes

Ladies and gents,

Oh my word! Totally overwhelmed by the support you guys have shown me! It’s good to know that people want to read my rants and care enough to pass on a kind word! I live for interaction! The virtual kind mostly, because I can sit on the couch alone and converse with hundreds of people without having to wear foundation and do my eyebrows…which I’m not very good at as you’ll see shortly!Those damn things never wanna cooperate with me! In my defence the right one rubbed off as I was taking pictures of Anita! Next time I go first! Don’t get me wrong, I love getting dolled up, hence the blog, but that foundation/concealer/highlighter combo(I use MAC)isn’t cheap! And trust..after taking pics I don’t go anywhere! I just take lots of selfies to make it count…and send them to all the people on my recent chat list!

SN: If I post a picture on Instagram and someone unfollows me right after…well now that’s just rude!!!!!!Am I that offensive looking??It’s happened once or twice and I’m like *blink blink*. I’ve actually gone ahead to look at the said rude person’s page and it made me feel a bit better!”You ain’t Tyson Beckford or Gabrielle Union either!”*Hair flip*

I’ve been asked a lot about my hair. It was actually AnitA’s idea to try it out as we had a lot of Marley hair from a previous attempt to make natural hair wigs..total failure by the way! We’ll try do a tutorial together soon but basically I got my hair cornrowed(about 10), then I took an individual piece, hooked it onto a bobby pin, and passed the bobby pin through my braided hair. It took me all day and my arms ached like you wouldn’t believe,but overall I love the look! Only thing is that when this thing tangles…it tangles! And you can’t prevent it from tangling either!

Ok, let’s focus! I love this skirt! was actually a dress I made for my birthday, some of you might have seen it on my instagram..or on top of a table at Brew Bistro the night of! Lol I kid…I would never! I only stood on a few chairs! Hahaha ok, not really. Decided to turn it into a skirt after that so I can get more wear out of it. Paired it with a men’s oversize shirt and nude (white people nude! No idea what else to call them…beige perhaps??)heels that I bought online. Right here in Kenya no less. I was a bit skeptical at first because the pricing was good and they looked good online..but i went ahead and ordered these and in black as well and have to say I was pleasantly surprised! They are good quality and super comfortable! I’m all about supporting local entrepreneurs! The lady I dealt with was so sweet too, God bless her heart!

PS What would guys like to hear my two cents on? It’s pretty obvious I like to talk! Let’s converse!

Have a lovely week guys! Have something really interesting coming up! Going to feature a few people this week that I really admire and can’t wait to share them with you!

XO,

Lisa the Bantu.

    It’s great to see your blog back up, I follow your siz but after the bump she’s not been posting anything at all Congratulations to her and the joy if having twins for us means now that she’s silent we get to keep up with yours hope you stay on with shorter breaks. I love the nude skirt so much. Natural hair looks great on you.
    Your previous post does inspire me coz I always imagined at the age I am right now my life would decided and sorted out but am still figuring things out, finding enough love and Confidence in myself and learning to accept and enjoy it as well.

    Lisa, You are amazing. Your blog is just much more than fashion and all that stuff. I love the fact that I can read and relate with you. Such posts are a breathe of fresh air.Very encouraging and fashion-filled.I absolutely love.
    Your recent post just spoke to me and I believe many others, I had done a similar post a while back and its great to know that it happens to some of us.
    Looking forward to more posts, im officially hooked
    Love.xx
    Bella

    Good to see you’re back to blogging. I’ve loved your blog from the beginning when it was culifashionary and I’m quite excited to see how your style has evolved. I am really loving the look. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us and I’m loving the hair, think I’m going to try it out.
