Volumes • • •

 

 

Today I’m going to talk about love. The silent type. Concealed behind a curtain.
The light that is best hidden under a bushel… It gives to those that are near, but doesn’t stray too far. It fears that the wind may put it out if it stands on the bushel.
The drizzle that slowly creates an ocean..
The drizzle that lets others be, while it is.
I’m going to pour my heart out..
Today, I’m going to be somebody…
Tonight I am a big deal.

Today I’m going to talk about love
The silent love
My love speaks in silence
Silent volumes …

Tonight I’m going to talk about love
A love that won’t be spoken of because it is a silent love
Silent mysteries…

My Attempt at Skincare Blew up in my Face (you may be hurting your skin)

 

If you follow me on instagram and in “real life” (🙄) you’d know that I’m particular about my skin and I’ve always wanted a skincare regimen that would work for me. Well I found one that didn’t work for me.

An argument I seem to have lost and won.

A Guide to Fashion Designing – perfecting your model’s face

 

This aspect of fashion designing I’m going to take you through, is the more artistic side of perfecting your model or template — the face.
In my early days of designing, I left my designs faceless because I hated drawing faces. Now it’s the part I enjoy drawing most; being able to create different looks, deciding whether your model is fierce or cute, with high cheekbones or just a chubby round face, does she have nappy hair or straight hair, and every thing related to creating a person.

A Guide to Fashion Designing – drawing female model templates

 

I’ve taken you through an easy way to draw a template using the triangle and oval technique, I’ve taught on frills, and drawing male templates, even on motivation before you start. Today’s post is on the more technical way — as I like to call it — of drawing female model templates. It’s quite easy. Make sure you check the male model templates tutorial where I first introduced this technique. The female version is alike, with a few differences.

Red is a Life Saver

 

I am here with a sermon of sorts…the doctrine of The Beauty of Red. I love seeing women explore colours of a large variety, although the absence of it happens to be my favorite.
Next to my heart is the colour red, and don’t we just love the beauty of Red. ♥️
For this critical analysis, I acquired various pictures of people, men and women, to buttress my points.
