  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    Pulling of one color from head to toe may seem easy but remember that it may also turn out to be monotonous. However, fashion is all about risk taking; sometimes it works, sometimes it just doesn't.

    Apart from an all black or white outfit,  it has never really crossed my mind that I can actually wear another color in the same shade from head to toe.

    And so for today's post I decided to challenge myself by doing just that. I went for neutrals and I decided to give you two different looks. Enjoy and feel free to let me know what your favorite look was.

    Till next time,
    It's me,

    For my second look, instead of the two piece set, I went for a nude lace top...

    I am sure most ladies will never forget to go for a facial or mani/pedi but will occasionally forget to take good care of their lips which is also very key. It was not until my lips started having dark patches after using a certain brand of lipstick I will not disclose, that I realized the importance of a lip scrub. You can imagine what I have been going through for the past few weeks trying to clear the dark patches on my lips..sigh. Good news is my lips are finally starting to get back to normal.

    So today I will basically be giving you a few tips on how to take good care of your lips.

    1. Make it a habit to frequently scrub your lips
    Don't get me wrong though, by frequently here I do not mean every day otherwise your lips will be sore but instead try at least thrice a week. You could purchase a lip scrub from a cosmetic shop but be sure to get the right product.



    A home made lip scrub could also work as opposed to buying one. Just mix a tea spoon of sugar, tea spoon of honey and a few drops of lemon and ensure it becomes paste after which you can go ahead and apply it on the lips. Lemon is actually known to lighten so in case you are struggling with dark lips as I did a few weeks ago, then this is just but the perfect solution! You can thank me later.

    2. Avoid licking your lips
    Yes, you heard me right. Licking your lips damages the protective barrier which leads to drying of lips no wonder people who lick their lips will never stop.

    3. Drink a lot of water
    Water is good for your body, skin and even the lips. It keeps them hydrated all day, every day.

    4.  Invest in a good lip balm which has sun protection. 
    Did you know that your lips lack Melanin which is supposed to protect them from sun protection? So make sure you invest in one with sun protection. (Try Nivea Lip Care, Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer or Palmers Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Lip balm)


    5. Always apply Vaseline or lip balm before you go to bed.
    Vaseline is perfect for moisturizing and softening your lips.



    6. Once in a while, ditch the Matte Lipsticks for Hydrating lipsticks. Personally, when I first wore Matte Lipstick I was super excited of the fact that once you put it in the morning then you don't have to be worried about reapplying it every now and then. And then again you don't have to worry about staining cups and glasses. :-) However ladies, minimize on the Matte Lipsticks because all they do is just dry your lips which may lead to cracking.


    So ladies, no excuses for chapped lips!

    Hope you learnt something.

    Yours,
    Linda's World of Style.

    Good afternoon and Happy New Month...

    On the blog today I'll be featuring my white sleeveless coat which I wore recently for the 1 Crop Top 4 Ways challenge. As you remember I had told you that this year I will basically be playing around with the same pieces to create different looks so I get to show you that you don't have to go out of your way to spice up your closet every now and then but just by getting the right pieces then you are good to go.

    Enjoy and have a lovely day ahead.

    Yours, 
    Linda's World of Style.
