Dresses makes me feel confident and more feminine. A few months ago, Femme Luxe approached me to promote their lovely dresses, I was very pleased to do so. I have also worn dresses from other brands such as Quiz, Fashionova, Nelly, Shein, and Awbridals.

I love to make the best use of my summer outfits, I do enjoy wearing my lovely summer outfits indoors, to the beach, and also for creating my Instagram stories, blog posts, Facebook posts, and youtube post. I have received a lot of compliments from my amazing friends, fans, and family! You guys have told me that I look lovely in these dresses ( please find pictures below). The weather in the Netherlands is great these days, not too cold, so such outfits would be nice to wear during these sunny days.

The dresses I am wearing below are very fragile, I do recommend you wash such outfits with hand, If you must wash it in a washing machine, please set the washing machine at a very low temperature. Washing these clothes without care will damage the outfits. For my male fans and reader out there, please do make sure you wash your outfits regularly and properly by using the right temperature, separating colored wash, and whitewash.  I enjoy laundry very much and also has coached several persons on how to care for themselves, shoes and linen. I used to work for laundry and dry cleaning company over a decade in Nigeria, I really learned a lot about caring for all kinds of clothing while I was working for the company. If you do enjoy washing your towels, bedsheets at home nd really like it to smell great, I do recommend you use Robijn washing gel from Jumbo Supermarket in The Netherlands.

7 REASONS WHY I LIKE WEARING NICE DRESSES!

Dresses make me feel like a lady. A woman needs to have a couple of dresses in her wardrobe. The more we women grow older,  our dresses style, color, texture needs to change too.

  1. Dresses make me feel comfortable.
  2. Dresses make me feel more feminine.
  3. Dresses are easy to maintain.
  4. Dresses improve my confidence level.

Brands such as Femme Luxe, Shein, Nelly, Fashionova, We Fashion, H&M, MET, Ted Baker has really made really nice clothing. My loving ladies out there, when you have to wear a dress, wear minimal makeup, have the right accessories, think about the occasion you are about to attend before dressing up. Wear dresses when you are at home, going for a dinner date, a wedding or after the wedding party. Wear nice jeans instead when going to the supermarket or a long decent dress.  My mummy advised me to start selling my dresses so I decided to build my very own webshop where I sell my dresses called http://www.fabulousbeautiesfashion.com.

A few weeks ago, I went to Breda to buy some cool jeans from the brand Tommy Hilfiger. I wish I was able to find a job in Middelburg that sells Tommy Hilfiger Jeans. I also bought a foundation from Dior exactly my skin shade. I was so happy I was able to finally buy a foundation exactly my skin tone. I bought the cool foundation at the Ici Paris shop in Breda.

IDEAS ON STYLING YOUR DRESSES!

You need at least one nice black blazer to style your dresses. If you like to wear dresses to pick up your kids from school, to the supermarket, you need to incorporate a nice little necklace, flat shoes, a simple day makeup look. Wearing dresses to a nice after the wedding party, you need to style the dress with a nice pair of black, green, or pink bags, with matching shoes.

My girlfriend in Middelburg sells really nice trendy dresses. Seven years ago, I bought a nice colorful dress with a green jacket, a green handbag, and some accessories, I really like the dress, I wore it to a party. I felt so happy I wore that dress after wearing that dress on the party, i wore the dress at home, to a dinner date, for my youtube video, and so on. It is very important to buy and wear dresses that have high quality, because you get to wear dresses for many years, instead of buying very low priced dresses with low quality, i do recommend you invest your money in a good quality dress.

During the winter period, please wear a nice winter jacket, especially if you live in a country with a cold climate. A few years ago, I bought a very nice winter jacket from Bomont in Middelburg, I truly like the outfit.

MY FAVOURITE SUMMER DRESSES AND PAINTING 2020!

I enjoy painting alot. I have painted some diagrams on the canvas and also done some sketches. Some talented artist has sketched me too. I enjoy wearing nice dresses and also painting on canvas. Painting helps me to feel good!

I do like to shop for the paintings i use for my canvas from Pipoos. I buy the makeup items i use for my face from Douglas, iciparis or from drugstore shops in The Netherlands.

I usually use acrylic paint on a canvas. Please before you start painting, first you need to sketch the diagram you want to paint on a piece of paper, practice makes perfect. Make sure you sketch the diagram properly on a piece of paper before you draw it on a canvas. Action has really nice affordable canvas.  I like to buy nice colors of acrylic paints such as pink, brown, purple, green. These are nice colours to start basically.

Before painting, please soak the back of the canvas, make it nice and wet, before you start painting, that would help your painting look better, prevent the canvas to absolve your painting. Please search on youtube for inspiration.

If you do want to sell your painting, please create nice pictures and share you painting on Instagram, Facebook page, etsy, flickr, 500px, you may be able to sell your paintings on canvas on these sites. Please avoid using water on your painting.

I hope these photos inspire you to start painting today! Please adhere to the tips mentioned above, your painting would come out better if you practice these. Please subscribe to my youtube channel above.

Do you have a protruding stomach, would you like to make it look flat and more beautiful? Please massage your belly at least every fifteen-minute so that your belly will become flat. Please message your self gently on your stomach to achieve flat stomach, i can help you achieve great blood circulation, reduce cellulite,  reduce blotting,  toxins, and helps you feel better!
