STAY SAFE, WEAR A MASK, BE AFROCHIC

Cecefinery masks
Colorful and unapologetically exciting, we brought these African prints masks exclusively to our Etsy store when it was first announced that the restrictions were being relaxed, and wearing masks in public was going to be compulsory.  
     Therefore, putting some of our best African prints to good use was the natural step to follow. With face masks being the accessory of the season. Made with 100% cotton, our face masks come in two styles: the pleated and the contoured. Hand or machine washable and double-layered, to help our customers remain safe, Afrochic, and stylish during these critical times.

This year, I attended my first Afro Hair and Beauty Live London.

One will think: with me wearing Afro hair, I will be all over these type of events.

The truth is: Yes, I like my hair Afro or any other Afro hairstyle; but I am just not a hair girl. I do a hairstyle I like, I stick to it. Or I use a good product, I stick to it. I am much more adventurous with fashion and jewelry.

So, I was pleased to be invited by the organizer of the show I met earlier that month at the Screen Nation Awards. As it meant, time or me to discover new products.

The event spammed over 2 days, but I only attended the first day.

The Afro Hair and Beauty Live London had: The fashion & Lifestyle exhibitors section

Among which I had the pleasure to catch up with many brands I have worked with before.

The area was a buzz with a mix of upcoming and established designers displaying their latest collections. So, if one visitor was looking for unique pieces and accessories, it was the perfect place.

I also met up with Tahlia Gray, creator of SheerChemistryWith who I have also worked with in the past on her brand commercial.

She is just everything Afrochic stands for. Then, top it off, I got offered 2 pairs of Sheer Chemistry tights. Can’t wait to wear them soon.

Stage Show and Competition

There were two fashion shows each day from established and upcoming designers. And the designers showcasing also had exclusive pieces, available to purchase on their stalls in the fashion area.

Then, I met with Diana Dahlia, a radio personality I recently co-hosted  Happy Days, a radio show on Behind The groove Radio. ( Listen HERE) 

Some of you might have had a peek on my Instagram, But your girl  A.K.A me has been doing radio too. Woohoo!!!

They say:  if your dreams don’t scare you, then you aren’t dreaming big enough.

Well, my dream life since Cameroon has always been the’ UGLY BETTY‘ type of lifestyle. With me being Betty, but with a Wilhemina confidence and style.

So, for the past few years, and at this stage of my life, I can say with confidence, I am living the dream! My Dream! 

It is not always pink or glamorous but I am happy to create a life that challenges me to be my best. I came, I saw, I am conquering; one magzine at a time.

All this to say, I made it to the SPRING/SUMMER issue of Stylist magazine.

I wrote a piece about the amazing designer Samson Soboye during the Africa Fashion Week London Here and I loved his designs so much that I decided to style one of his outstanding piece : A cleverly designed collared bib made in cotton wax prints fabric with tie straps for fastening.That can be worn under a jacket and looks like a shirt or over a shirt/t-shirt/tank for a smart but casual look like in this case.
