THE AFRICAN KINKY HAIR

As an African woman I love to play with my hair styles, so I wear wigs, extensions, braids and my natural hair. Playing with wigs or extensions is something I love to do to create different looks but at the end of the day my natural look is still my favorite cos it is my authentic self. I keep my hair in it natural state cos I love the traditional African look.
During the slavery time the African were not allowed to be proud of their hair or skin tone, cos the slaves with ligh skin and curly hair were allowed to be house slaves while the dark and kinky hair slaves were relegated to work in the fields.
The Europeans standard of beauty appreciate long straight or curly hair.
Despite the standard of beauty we should love to embrace our differences and celebrate each other.
I love my black kinky hair and I will rock it no matter what the standard of beauty says, and I will change to weaves or wigs  any time I like cos I give myself the permission to embrace any type of hair style at any time.

THE JOURNEY

61407105_337061193626209_213290794633658368_nFour years of blogging
Today I celebrate my fourth year of blogging.
Ooooo my God is just like yesterday, but time as they say flies when you are busy.
I started blogging without really having a plan or knowing how I was going to do it.
I made a word press website, started doing photo shoot with my personal outfit and sharing my taught on fashion with the World.
In the beginning it was a hobby but after two years I created a company for it, during these period I have written two blog books and the manuscript of the third book is almost ready.
You can get the e book on Amazon. For the hard copy sales are done through my website www.styleandconcept.be
The journey has not been easy, I have managed to come this far because of my passion and dedication to my craft. Style and concept will continue to create beautiful photo shoot ideas and will cater for the costume and the amazing locations.
I thank all my photographers for all the wonderful pictures and above all for understanding my vision.
As, a lover of fashion I use this channel to showcase my creative work.

Fashion for me is a form of self-expression.

It is also intriguing for me because the understanding of colors, ethic influence, seasonal functionalities, shape of the human body, the different skin tones are very important element in fashion.

In addition to all this variable the success of this metric changes at all times.

As we know trends changes as quick as the season but that is good because it always comes back, that is why Fashion serves as a memory of our journey in life.

As a fashion blogger I can tell you that fashion helps to boost self-esteem, you feel better when you look good.

Dressing up can help to boost your confidence, it helps to create a more positive outlook on life which can make a nicer person.

I am a person who appreciate aesthetic in all different parameter. As a visual person I want things and people to look nice.

It is good to present ourselves to the World in an appealing and fashionable way.

Style and Concept by Rita Roland is all about been beautiful from the inside out and projecting this beauty for the outside World to see.

To celebrate this great occasion I use this beautiful pink dress.

Colorful outfit goes very well with my skin tone.

This pink dress is beautiful and dramatic, so I decided to keep the accessories minimum so that all the attention will be on the dress.

An extreme high heel shoes was used to keep the dress from the ground.

So my fabulous fashionista who has been with me on these journey I want you to know that fashion might not be rocket science but it can be fun to follow and play with.

Cheers to four years of blogging.

A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION Sponsored post

DSC_8983As I celebrate my birthday I decided to go for  a blue evening dress because the color blue represent depth and stability. It also symbolizes trust, loyalthy, confidence and wisdom. Blue is consider to be beneficial to the mind and body.

Do U like to celebrate your birthday?

I think life should be celebrated, no matter what we are going through, just take time out to party with friends and family cos life is too short.

It is good to be thankful for what you have in life and what you have accomplished we must appreciate the fruit of life, which is birth itself.

Birth is your beginning, it is the chance to fullfill your mission in life.

That is why birthday is a momentous occasion and should be celebrated.

It is a chance to remember the day a major event occurred. It is a time to rethink your life. A time to recall a new beginning, no matter how things were yesterday or last year we can always try again or take a jump into a new adventure, with this blue evening dress I take a jump into a new adventure as I celebrate my birthday.

This is one outfit you don’t want to miss in your wardrobe.

These shade of blue is a new color in my wardrobe.

For these look I made  it more feminine by wearing  an awesome pump.

Keep jewellery, make up and other accessories to a minimum not to overwhelm the look.

ESTHER BUNNY

THE EASTER BUNNY

Easter is a Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The origin of the Easter bunny is a mystery.

Some say it originated from a pagan tradition of the festival of Eostre, the goddess of fertility where the animal symbol is known to be a bunny.

The rabbit knows to have high energetic breeding capacity, which symbolizes fertility.

The eggs represent new life.

Decorating the eggs for Easter started in 13th century, the German immigrant brought it to America and it later spread to other countries.

Children are very excited about the Easter eggs that they often leaves carrot for the bunny who brings the eggs incase she get hungry.

MERRY XMAS

Hello everybody I wish you all a Merry Xmas and above all we should not forget or be carry away with all the parties but to remember that it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

I would also like to say it is not what is under the tree that matter but the good heart around it, just the show of love and affection is all that matters.

Let’s talk a little about the Xmas tree itself.
The Xmas tree is an Evergreen Pine or Fir tree, which is associated with Christmas celebration. It originated in Northern Europe.

The tree was traditionally decorated with roses made of colored paper but in the 18th century it was illuminated with candles but later it was replaced with the Christmas light. Today it is decorated with traditional ornament, baubles, tinsel, garland and candy canes. An angle of star is normally placed on top to represent Angle Gabriel or the star of Bethlehem.
Last year I decided to do a shot with the Christmas tree by decorating it with high heels shoes.

The theme of the shot was stilettos on the Christmas tree .

bJoelVD-8417

as you know  I like to be creative, that was just for the photo shoot at the studio but at home I had  my Christmas tree traditionally decorated.

I am a lover of Xmas and high heel shoes, so decorating the xmas tree with high heel was fun and this made me happy.

Hope you all are enjoying your Xmas celebration.

A lot of love from my family to yours.

MERRY XMAS
