So we’re at the shooting range, and the first thing my boyfriend says to me is, “only point the gun, if you have an intention to shoot”. My boyfriend (Also the guy who is responsible for these amazing pictures) had taken me to the shooting range that day. It was my very first time holding and firing a gun. I have to say, I was really scared for the most part, To have so much power placed in my hands really frightened the living daylights outta me! As my body eased a little bit into that assault rifle, I made a conscious decision to take charge and try to pull the inner Lara Croft out of me.
Now, what does this have to do with anything? That little excursion to the shooting range later lead to me taking my first pictures for this blog, a blog that I had been thinking of starting for quite some time now. Now with the words echoed by my boyfriend, “only point the gun…”
Just like the old saying, in order to succeed and truly make your dreams come true, you need to push yourself and get out of your comfort zone. I was hella uncomfortable that day, but one thing’s for sure, I left that place feeling like I could conquer the world, Not with a gun of course hahahahaha!!! Moral of the story is, don’t be scared. Take that leap of faith. Always.
It’s apparent I’m bursting with excitement for my first post. I actually can’t contain myself. I am so happy to be sharing what I love and what makes my heart smile, fashion.♥
For this look, I went for an easy long black dress and khenti head wrap. There are multiple videos on the tube showing you different ways of how to get your head wrapped. I wore the most comfy simple black and gold plated sandals. I love accessories, they help bring what could seem like a boring outfit and give it colour. So I got this satchel red bag from H&M and the gold neck piece from legit.
