EVENT VENUE SALONSMANTOVANI

Salons Mantovani is a luxury event company which has an elegant traditional interior design.
This reflects the classic European decor, whereby pairing furniture or accessories to create a sense of symmetry around a vocal point or a favourite art work. This helps to emphasize luxury and comfort.
This style fit very well with the type of woman which we tend to inspire.

Salons Mantovani, as you know, is located in Oudenaarde (Oost-Vlaanderen) in “Belgium”
It was established by Mr. André Verhenne and Mr. Luc Verhenne.
The name Mantovani was an inspiration from the Anglo-Italian conductor, composer, Annunzio Paolo Mantovani who died in March 1980. As Mr. André Verhenne and Mr. Luc Verhenne were a huge fan of his work, they decided to name their business after him, thus the birth of Salons Mantovani in September 1980.
During this period in Oudenaarde, there was no multifunctional halls for the dance school. André and Luc decided to contribute to the community by establishing this type of event venue. This made the Mayor of Oudenaarde very proud and happy to have such citizen in his community.
Salons Mantovani render services from meeting halls, wedding, and all type of events you can think of. They have a wonderful team of workers who are dedicated to their job. It is a place where the satisfaction of their client meets their ultimate goal. It is different from all other event venue because they cater for their clients’ needs from A-Z. It is a one stop shopping place for your events.
There are different halls all named after Queens e.g. Hall Paola, Hall Alexandra, Hall Diana and the Foyer which is a general meeting place for lunch. Hall Diana  got our attention because it is named after Luc Verhenne’s mother Diana. This hall is about 625m² and can accommodate 700 people.
Luc Verhenne’s mother Diana was a Queen in the sense that she was always ready to help whenever necessary. She was a woman whose charm and charisma would not be underestimated. She contributed enormously to the success of the business. That is why her legacy will linger on.

“The elegant traditional style of Salons Mantovani is going to be kept.” says  Luc Verhenne and we agree because the atmosphere is very comfortable and give a good luxurious feel.

We also wish that Salons Mantovani does more house catering, since the halls are always booked and not all of us has the privilege to be there with the house catering we can have a taste of their delicious food.

With this we say Salons Mantovani is the best place for all your events.

Have you been there? No?
Not yet ?
Please go and see for yourself and thank us later.

CHRISTMAS TIME

DSC_4176The best Christmas gifts are the presences of a happy family and good friends. Christmas season is the time of joy and happiness it is the time of forgiveness  where we all get to come  together to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
It is also  fun and exciting to decorate the Christmas tree with the children, they love it a lot.
It is a period where we get stress out looking for gift for our love ones. When picking gift for our love ones it is very important to put in mind what they like or what their hobbies are and use this as a guide to give them gifts because at the end it comes to the taught that is put in it than the price of the gift. My son always give me gifts that has a lot of taught in it this  amaze me and always brings tears of joy to my eye.
We don’t have to forget the Christmas outfit right.
Choosing an outfit for this occasion all depends if you are staying in or dinning out, if you are the one who loves to relax at home you can do the slouchy jeans and snugly slippers but if you like to dine out or visit friends you can do the glitter and glamour outfit but remember to stay warm this is very important when choosing your Christmas outfit.

FAMILY TO YOU

 

 

THE BEAUTY OF THE AUTUMN

Autumn is one of my favorite season of the year, when all the leaves from the trees and plants change their color into Multi colored work of art. It is very beauty sight.

For me been a Nigerian this is very amazing to see in my country we don’t have it.

This beautiful season represent a beautiful cycle of loss, regeneration and regrowth. The dead leaves on the ground disintegrate and turn into part of the soil which becomes fertilizer.

This season is perfect for taking beautiful scenic pictures.

It is very relaxing and rejuvenating to enjoy the nature and the surrounding scenery.

It is a perfect time to take out the coat, light the fire place and it is also a time to go camping, fishing or road trip etc.

The purple multicolored dress fit very well with the scenery since purple symbolizing creativity, wisdom and dignity it was a very nice choose of color for this shoot.

Autumn I greet thee with a dream full of HOPE

THE AFRICAN HEADTIE

The head tie or head wrap originated in Sub Sahara Africa and was used to convey spirituality and prosperity. The head tie is a way that the African use nonverbally communicated their place in life, to tell if she is a widow, grandmother or a young married woman. Tying a piece of cloth around the head is not specific to any cultural group, what is culturally specific is the way the fabric is tied and the type of fabric used.

The European or white American women fords a square piece of fabrics into a triangular shape and cover her hair by tying the fabric under the chic or at the nape of the neck.

While the woman from African ancestry folds the fabrics into a rectilinear shape, rather than tying the knot under the chic she ties the knot somewhere on the crown of her head. She leaves her fore head open this enhance the facial features.

During the slavery the white Lords imposed the wear of head wraps as a badge of enslavement.
In Nigeria head tie are known as GELE and can be rather large and elaborate it can be worn every day but the elaborate one’s like the one I am wearing are used for special events.

It is made of material which is firmer than the regular cloth. It is tied to cover the whole hair, the only part exposed is the face and the earrings.

The GELE is worn with traditional attire.

Today the head tie is worn by the African woman as a Queen might wear her crown.

MY BEAUTY SECRET

I often get ask how I keep my skin so smooth, clear and fresh, to be honest I use a lot of moisturizing cream at least twice a day this is because I have a very dry skin, the moisturizing cream keep my skin hydrated.
I also drink a lot of water between 1.5 to 2 liters a day. This is very good for the skin and it helps to lose weight if need be.
You have to also invest in skincare product, because it is useless to apply make up without the proper canvas, you can use make up to express yourself and to bring out your natural beauty but what you cannot do is to apply make up on a dry skin it will look like a mask and that is not what we want.

Developing a skin care routine that suit your skin type is very important you have to understand your skin and what it need to maintain it.

It is also very important to clean your make up brushes once or twice a week it all depends on how frequent you use them this is necessary to avoid bacteria.

After applying foundation, I dust my face with translucent powder to keep my face Matt. I also apply blush on my cheeks.

Above all to get a clear and smooth skin it is essential that you eat well, sleep enough and exercise regularly.

MY SMILE IS THE MOST VALUABLE BEAUTY TIP I HAVE

WHAT INSPIRE ME TO START MY BLOG

22835556_1542502055833574_1712369151_nThis is the question I am often asked by my fans and friends.

Rita Why did you start blogging ?

I noticed that women from the age of 30 and above did not like to dress feminine and sexy or even talk about fashion any more they are carried away with work and raising the kids that they give excuses why they don’t like to dress up or dress extravagent.

In short the extravagant fashion thing was a no go area because they consider it too materialistic and lack of depth, don’t even talk about standing out because they all wanted to fit in.

As a fashion advocate I decided to start a movement where it is OK for women from the age of 30 to dress feminine, sexy and extravagant without fear of been judged.

This is what Style and Concept by Rita Roland is all about.

As a creative person talking about it was not good enough women had to see it, so the blog gave me the platform to share my creative work with women all over the World.

Due to the fact that my blog show case different style of fashion this help women to get inspiration from the type of look which is most appealing to them. What is consistence about this diversity in my fashion style is the sexiness, elegance and glamour.

I get my inspiration from music, traveling or just talking with people.

I like to keep it real this is because I am a very down to earth person ( who loves to keep a little heaven) and also I love to live a life of truth, that is why I encourage women to embrace who they are without fear of been judged.

In between my busy life as a host in a luxury event company .

I take time out to write my articles and do the photo shoots for my blog.

I love using pictures to tell my stories that is why location, styling, attitude and atmosphere is very important  in my photo shoots and my writing.

So with my blog book Style and Concept by Rita Roland in my hands

I go into the world telling women about dressing sexy, glamorous, elegant and to be confident because self-esteem and a smile is the best outfit you can ever wear.

This revolution start now.

Thanks for embarking on this journey with me.

THE FUR COAT

Today fur coats are not only worn to opera but as street style.

When worn as street style it is normally combined with skinny jeans or leather pants this helps to balance the fluffiness of the fur coat to creates a very beautiful look.

A casual and very simple style is great with a fur coat because it makes the fur the star of the outfit.

It is a trend which is very common among fashion bloggers and street style stars.

Fur coat is super warm during the winter months so if you leave in a country where it freezes this type of coat really can keep you warm, if you are wearing the fur coat you can also cover your neck, but because the fur coat is a rich look it is better you go for a shawl in cashmere.

Some people don’t like the Fur if you are one of them it is OK you can go for the Faux fur it is equally gorgeous and you can create the same effect.
All that matters is keeping warm and feeling gorgeous.

When wearing a fur coat you can keep your hair long, short or curly, you will definitely look good in whatever style of hair you choose you can also pair it with all type of shoes but I decided to pair it with a spike super high heels shoes because I wanted the look to be sexy with an edge of seduction.

This is a type of look that when you enter in a room you will surely make an impression.

The Fall and Winter runaway is full of furs It does not look like the trend is slowly down soon.
