Shirt was originally a shirt that I turned into a muscle tee and used iron on letters to spell out the infamous phrase “Or Nah”.

A Few Things to Know About Nose Piercings!

nose 2 005

I recently got my nose pierced ,something I have wanted to do for quite some time now but always kept it off. This is my summer of actions speaking louder than words so I decided to get whilst out shopping with my mom and a friend. We went into a nearby Cambodian market place and had it done for only $10! haha talk about crazy! The whole procedure was quick safe and almost painless! Therefore, I decided to post some advice to help guide those considering the notion of a nose piercing from the basics to a little more personal tips.

1. Types of Nose piercings!

2. They really doesn’t hurt as much as you would think. Actually if you go in with the mentality that it is going to hurt like a *bleep* then you’re expectations will be disappointed so maybe its better to go in fear of the pain. 

3. The healing process takes a week and a couple days max to completely heal after which you may switch out the piercings with studs or rings of your choosing. Cleaning the area around the piercing with hydrogen peroxide should help!

4. Best places to go get a nose piercing are tattoo parlors or at your city’s mall.

5. Place to buy nose jewelry: Piercing Pagoda (located in the mall), Hot topic, Claire’s, etc. I would not recommend Ebay or Amazon because given the chance that the jewelry irritates your piercing, it is a lot harder to cover up because its right smack dab on your face! Save yourself the complications and take the safer route.

Au Revoir!

My First Year in University Recap!

Fotor0515140312

With the beginning of summer, comes the reminiscing of the school year haha. My freshman year of college was everything I expected and soo much more! There was lots of tears, dancing, kissing, laughing, reading, writing, stressing, failed exercising attempts, secrets shared, friendships made and broken, good news, and most importantly unforgettable memories. I can only thank God for the experience I’ve had and the people I’ve shared it with and look forward to an even better series of events!

A Quick Facts I’ve learnt About University

1. The freshman 15 is soo real tho!! As soon I got home the second thing my mom said to me was that I had gained weight (thnx ma!) but so did every person after that. I cant say I blamed them cause I chose sleep over working out several times i lost count and then there’s the easy access food. Honestly looking back, being surrounded by all the dessert,pizza and fries I could eat, I was doomed from the get go!

2. You have so much free time!! But what you decide to do with will make or break you! You could either study when get out of your last class at 12 o’clock or explore neighboring towns til mid night.

3. Depending on where you go to school, word gets out quick about pretty much everything and everyone! I go to a private university which sizes a significantly smaller student population than a state public college and eventually you know a little bit about everyone before you even meet them!

4. College parties are everything you expect and then some. A few tips are go with friends; always!, do not take open drinks from anyone even if you know the person, tell a friend when you plan to leave with anyone that you met at the party and do not take rides from random strangers!

5. Parties are a great way to socialize and talk to that one person you saw around campus but couldn’t introduce yourself to. However, do not go to parties to find a guy that’s relationship material because that is just not happening hun! The loophole to that though is introducing yourself to the guy/ girl you like, exchange numbers but do not go home with them that night. Instead you arrange to talk outside of the party scene.

6. Have at least one friend with a car and pay for gas. Once again you’ll have so much free time and come one you don’t want to use ALL of it in a stuffy library. Give your friend a $20 or so for gas and explore the theme parks nearby or the malls or neighborhood restaurants!

7. Ask for help, ask for help, ask for help. Chances are, your college has numerous resources available to you, USE THEM! You do happen to be paying for them!

8. If you are bad with time management before college, you need to get it together before because once the ball gets going its going to be really hard to get it together. Having to balance school, a social life, family time, you time takes practice so start right away.

9. High school friend, who? There’s only one person I talk to from high school and that is my best friend since like middle school. I actually had such a hard time keeping in touch with her even though we’re so close! We both had so much going on while we were in school that there just wasn’t time to keep each other updated so were taking time to catch up during the summer. I spoke to my mom twice a week and sometimes went a few months without talking to my family members.

10. The best friendships are the ones that bring you out of your comfort zone and make you open your eyes to opportunities and experiences you never though you would partake in. Those friendships when handled wonderfully are forever!

11. Do not! I repeat DO NOT deny yourself of anything new. Try everything unless you could die from it then really put it in perspective and go with your gut!

Update: moving, university, dorm life, future of my blog, etc

Image

 My dad’s car was all packed up and my entire family and I headed off to university. I had to move in a day after everyone else but in a way I wasn’t that disappointed because I was able to avoid the chaos of move in day.

ImageImage

ImageImage

Before and after moving into my university dorm. It took me a solid four hours to get everything into its place all by myself. Key words: all by myself. P.S I do have a roommate so the space is limited but she’s so fantastic, I don’t even care sharing haha.

Image

Image

My mum surprised me with a huge delivery box filled with a whole bunch of goodies for my birthday. Add the awesome friends I was surrounded with plus this surprise and spending my birthday on campus wasn’t so bad after all!

Image

The library. Literally my home through the week especially on Thirsty Thursdays (replace the alcohol with coffee please, these girls are pulling an allnighter!)

Image

I got to lead my very own Cardio class so you can say something got checked off my bucket list 😉

Image

 My first night out!

Image

Do you like this little number? I had to withhold from buying it cause it finally kicked in that summer is really over. 😦

Image

Fall ready face?

A night out with my hall mates. Its amazing how close you can grow to a bunch girls you’ve only known for only a month. Love them all so much!

So far I barely have enough time to sit down and even read the title of a magazine article so while my blog is a priority of mine its going to be a little harder to keep it regularly updated.

I thank you all so much for not losing hope in me and I hope I can learn to balance two of my first loves!

Au Revoir!

Find me on Instagram!

I was recently forced to buy a new phone because of a little phone into the toilet action. Since I was already buying a new hone, I thought I might as well upgrade and get an android phone, something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. After all the shazzam of activating my new phone, I made the decision to risk my social life and open an instagram account: instagram.com/tabithamajwega. Now you get a little inside look of what my day to day consists of if you wish. Definitely give me a follow and I will be more than willing to follow back!

HOW I STYLE BLAZERS!

 Yello’ sunshines! I come bearing the gift of three different ways I style blazers. Blazers are just that staple piece that you can throw over any outfit and change it instantly.Plus you can wear them during any season! They come in different shapes, sizes, prices, designs, patterns and colors. All the pieces in this post are $50 or under.

 Tongue Tied.ImageI love the way the blazer adds an unexpected touch of sophistication to this otherwise fun outfit. I prefer to have the blazer unbuttoned for a a more cooler look. While the main pieces of the outfit are black, the brown flats are completely unexpected and add to the sophisticated part of this look.

Blazer: H&M $45  Top: Mango.com $30 Shorts: RiverIsland.com $38 Flats: SteveMadden $50 Purse: Forever 21 $25 Mascara: Loreal Extreme Volume.

Promotion Calls.

This is the most sophisticated of all these looks because it is made for an office environment or maybe even business interviews. The bandage skirt is tall enough so that its not inappropriately short and uncomfortably short. The lace top keeps the look from looking to harsh. The shoes are the winky 😉 face of the outfit. They are so hot! The bag is clean cut and ties the look together while being completely functional. And finally Le blazer, it’s big, its leather and it has a oldie feel to it. Its not your average blazer and that is why I love it so much! With all that said, it keeps the look interesting, personal yet not too risky.

Blazer: Vjstyle.com $50 Top: awwdore.com $36 Skirt: Allyfashion.com $15 Bag: H&M $50 Shoes: Zara.com $50

Coral Me Maybe.

I would totally rock this look for a casual date, lunch, brunch, meeting, running errands, etc. It is very comfortable and look effortless. The graphic tee and bright coral/peach jeans draw the eyes, Blazer keeps the look together and the booties add height without being overwhelming! Delicate pieces of jewelry do not distract from the outfit but rather add to the cool factor.

Blazer: Efoxcity.com  $29 Pants: Newlook.com $30 T-shirt: Monki.com $20 Ankle booties: Forever 21 $35 Earrings: Modcloth.com $9.99 Leather Bracelet(top): Hollister.com $13 Leather Bracelet(bottom): 2020ave.com $24

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Like this post if you want more of these “How I Style“.
