Style and beauty secrets

“I try to wear a smile always. I don’t really follow trends but go with whatever flatters my shape. I try to pay attention to details too. I can be a bit ‘matchy-matchy’ for instance; the colour of my shoes must compliment whatever outfit I have on.


For my everyday look, I dress according to my mood at the moment. Some days, I’m in the mood to look and feel glam, so, may opt for a nice short dress with matching flat pumps. Other days, I just want to look simple and may wear a nice pair of jeans and a chiffon or silk top.

For a dinner date with hubby, whatever I wear would depend on where reservations are being made but a classy and sexy dress with a bit of heels always works for me. For business meetings, I try to look professional by wearing a blazer or suit. A nice peplum top with a knee- length skirt also works for me.

Whatever look I choose to rock, it’s never complete without a bit of jewellery here and there. Did I mention I can’t do without Ruby Woo Mac lipstick? It’s just perfect for me. In addition, I’m a sucker for beautiful shoes. I can’t get enough shoes! Then, I love little black dresses. I feel every woman should have at least two of those in their wardrobe.

For my skin, although I’m really lucky to be blessed with a lovely skin, I make sure I wash out all make up at the end of the each day and I use a lot of moisturizer, especially during the dry season, to avoid my skin breakouts. I also use Rose water or bio oil to get rid of stretch marks and give my skin that soft and smooth look.”


On keeping fit

“I try very hard to maintain a good figure though I’m not a fan of gyms. I opt for healthy foods. I must confess I’m addicted to fried plantain and have a very sweet tooth, but for me, portion control is key and that discipline really helps.

I try to get some exercise in by talking long walks every day.”

Favourite places to shop

“Most times, I shop at Selfridges, Zara, House of Fraser and H&M.”
