Goodbye! x

I will miss you all!
I have very important exams coming up next year and i need to use the few months i have for serious studying.
So hear comes the bad news; I won't update for close to a year. But i promise to come back with a complete new blog makeover and better crafted posts!
However, you can still send me emails on anything and i will reply when i get back. It could be to ask me fashion/beauty/relationship/family advice, anything at all! I will devote time to replying when i get back by God's Grace!
Plus, i am counting on you guys to tell me whatever i missed when i get back(Giveaways, blog events and awards)! I might even have a giveaway to mark my return!
In the meantime, i would love it if you could comment on my older posts and the pages of this blog. If you are a new visitor, be sure to follow so when i get back and i start posting, you won't miss any of my posts!
Thank you for all the support and love throughout my blogging journey. It has not ended and i will be back.
 It will be very difficult to go online for research or project reasons and resist the urge to type or but i will make it through this period and come out victorious with the help of God, family and friends! I have been sinning a lot lately and i am trying to learn to be more patient and live right.
I will miss you all! x,

Guest Post: Picks Of A Shoe Addict!

Hi bloggers, i don't allow guest posts on my little blob here but i made an exception and i sure don't regrett it because she is good at what she does! I did a guest post on hers too which you MUST check out!
Here we go:
Hello everyone, Naana came up with a brilliant idea for her to do a guest post on my blog, and me to do one on hers. My name is Talia, I am 15 and live in Wales, and I blog mostly about fashion here: I'd love it if you had a look at my blog!
Now I was wondering what to blog about and decided that seeing as my blog is called One Foot On The Style, it would be fitting to share with you a fantastic shoe website I have discovered and my favourite items from the site. It is called Lovely Wholesale ( )
and has a great range of shoes, from sandals to heels. So, here are my picks from each category:
Ankle Boots- $17.49
Grey Flats- $13.99
White Sandals- $18.49 
Blue Heels- $20.49
So which pair are your favourite? Comment and let me know. If you want the link for each item, just click on its description.

Me: Talia is a great blogger and knows what she is about! And she has great taste! She asked about favourites. Mine are the first two! Be sure to let us know yours too! Thanks Talia!

One Sunday...............

I took this picture one Sunday, quite a while ago but i have never really had the chance to do a post on it. So i am doing a quick post since i know i really lack fashion posts. I am doing casual with a little bit of style. It is very simple but i admit i like simple. In my eyes, it is simple stylish. You don't need to put together something outrageous to look good and unique. Just look for that inner style and always plan your outfit by yourself and then show it to someone later for opinion. The best person is your mom or dad. Brothers will just tell you they don't like it or it is okay. Nothing super super motivating. At least my brothers. But i still love them! I have fought with them a lot of time and even given them silent treatments but i want that to end and just be nice. Always have confidence in what you wear and if you commit a fashion disaster, move on. Don't let it put you down but encourage you to always look your best! I have been there and i know what i am saying!
p.s I don't know why the picture was ''tilted'' that way. :(
Accessories- Unknown
Bye for now! :) x

Me & Family!

We fight a lot and argue a lot but we still love each other! x

Control Your Acne


 Acne is something that every girl at some point in her life experiences. In rare cases though, some women have never had to deal with acne. If you are like me and get pimples and zits once in a while, then today is your lucky day because i am going to give tips on how to control your acne.
1.Eat well- I love groundnuts and magarine but too much of it is not good for your skin and can make you get acne. Also, try to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. You can start with really basic ones such as bananna and carrots.
2. Shower- It helps to reduce the amount of germs on your face and the rate at which you get infections..
3. Protect your skin with sunscreen- Some body lotions contain sunscreen but if yours doesn't, you can just get one at a cosmetic shop.
4. Don't pop, touch or scratch face- It just makes your acne worse.
5. Avoid washing your face more than 3 times daily- Although it sounds like a great way to reduce your zits and pimples, the turth is that it makes your acne worse and may cause a skin reaction.
6. Aloe Vera works- The Natural Aloe Vera Plant is great and continious application of the gel in it helps to have a clearer face.
7. Myths Myths Myths- Know the facts from the truth. It is not every advice that is correct and so you must try to distinguish the facts from the myths. For example, the fact that toothpaste can help with acne control is a myth and actually baseless.
8. Cheap low quality make-up- Using cheap low quality makeup can cause a rapid increase of acne on your face and the best solution in my opinion is to not use makeup at all. You can just stick to lip gloss and mascara if you want. I only use lip gloss and add light mascara on special ocassions.
9. Get an acne control cream- I try to give only natural tips on my blog so i suggest a natural acne control cream. If carefully selected, you will experience no side effects. If you do however, have a reaction, quit use and try another one. The most important thing is to contact a dermatologist for advice on selecting a good acne control cream. Don't just walk into any pharmacy and buy whatever is on sale.
10. Don't freak out- Acne is completely natural and even though it takes time for you to rid yourself of it, it will go away!
Thanks for reading and i would love it if you could make my day by leaving a comment! x

At times, i just don't know the exact words to use to describe what i feel. Sometimes i am happy, other times i am sad. Or maybe just moody.
If it is of any significance, then you should know this was not the initial title of this post. It was initially titled ''Savings, Weight Gain And First Letters'' but this post is more than that and taking the computer going off as a sign that the title is indeed not right, i changed it to simply ''Thoughts''.
I guess i am a fan of Tavi Gevinson. I mean, yes, i do not agree with all her thoughts but i find her to be very talented. There are times when i wish i could be as famous as her but i know it won't happen right now. Besides, i know fame comes with end of privacy. Tavi herself said in one of her posts that she now keeps a journal to put down the private stuff that she can't share on her little blob anymore. And in my understanding, the journal is as a result of the fact that the whole world is watching her now. Today, i just want to pretend to be like her, to share my thoughts just like she did when she was only 11 and took the computer and just started typing away.
Lately, i have been a bit confused. I think i may be stressed out a bit *due to a lot of thinking*. I have very important exams to write next year April which would take me from Juniour High to Senior High. I want to go to a school of my choice and not get dumped in some other school. I am not saying that other schools are not of any good but getting your preference is always great.I just got myself a new timetable which will be effective from tomorrow. I realize that i procrastinate a bit(okay a lot) but it being a sin, i am trying to avoid it. By God's grace if i do live to see tomorrow, i hope to keep to it. I need to study hard to achieve my aims and i want to concentrate only on God, my studies, family and a little time for my blogs too. No other things. That means that i will work less often on this blog or any other blog i have for that matter. I have realized that i am neglecting my other blog(which is a writing blog) so when i do come online, i will try and get time for it.

Also, i realize that i am slowly getting addicted to twitter or maybe i already am so i am going to delete my twitter account. (No going back on this. Fingers crossed* How do you do that by the way? Is it the normal finger crossing?*) Besides, i don't have time to manage it right now. Or maybe i might not. I hope i don't change my mind on deleting it because i know it is going to benefit me. Tomorrow, vacation classes begins. To be honest, i think i am considered a fashion disaster in school. Maybe even a dork. So i am playing fashion safe from now on and going for simple looks that are still stylish. And TBH, i kinda like simple stylish. I hope to make use of the classes fully and to look good every single day. Is that a silly thought?
Also, i want to put on weight before school reopens. I don't want to get fat but i want to look slightly chubby. Not ''chubby chubby'' but i just want to look slightly more heavy. No explanations. All i can say is personal reasons.

For the ''first letters'' stuff, it has to do with a mail i got. One early evening, my dad went to family mailbox and came back with a letter for me. It contained a card which Kelly Michelle of ArtByKelly had sent me. She had sent it around May and i got it in late July. *Can you believe it???* Anyway, i got very excited because it was my first letter/mail ever from abroad! If you were in my shoe, you would have reacted the same way. I was like jabbering and....... All i want to say is thank you Kelly for your awesome mail. P.S It looks even better in life than in this picture and it even comes with two slips, one pink and one blue with her very own trademark. 
Unfortunately, i put it in a wet bag and the card tore on the top. I felt very bad and i am sorry Kelly. My fault. :( However, the slips are okay and i will treasure them forever. :) I will take care of mails better from now on though.
Lastly, i want to share another new thing on with me. I am saving, every little coin left from the day and after a while, i will change them to notes and use them to buy personal stuff(generally new clothes, shoes and accessories) and much more personal personal stuff which i won't mention because some girls might find it embarassing. Hint hint, I don't feel shy writing it but i feel shy saying it out loud. Guess what?
Maybe you found this post boring, that is, if you are not very much into writing or reading. However, i love comments and would love to hear your views so please do share your thoughts and feel free to recommend products you would like me to review. Plus, outfit posts coming up so stay in touch. Have a blessed week! Toodles,

We don't always get it right. I don't. Sometimes, i get it wrong and sometimes, my look can be described in one word: Fabulous. Here is my list of 10 fashion faux pas to help you avoid common fashion mistakes.
                                                                  [Good fit]
1. Bad fit-I usually commit this mistake but not anymore. From now on, it is my fit and that is how it should be.Make sure your clothing fits you well and that it's not too large or too small.
2. Wrong colour choice- Colour is a pop of beauty and if you are thin, go for bright colours like pinks and yellows and if you are more on the chubby side, go for dull but strong colours like purples and blues. Teals and greens are suitable for both shapes. If you are medium--sized, lucky you. You can rock them all!
                                                    [Kinda working but slightly too much teal]
3. Too much going on- Accessories are cool but don't overdo them. They must match with what you are wearing and must be for your age group.

4. Bad mix-Too bright colours don't work well together and too dull colours also don't work together. Don't wear only one colour and make sure that both colours match. Light pink with a little yellow, purple with a bit red, Brown with yellow, teal with white, orange with dark green, think wide. But don't over-do it.
                                                             [although it is cute, don't wear it]
5.Super high stiletto's- The fact that you saw a celeb wearing it doesn't mean you should go get one. High stilettos have negative effects on you medically.
                                                         [Good trick]-try other colours
6. Wrong shade- Sometimes, it's not the colour you are doing wrong. It is the shade. The shade of whatever you have on be it clothes, shoes or bags must compliment your skin tone.
[Go for slightly shorter ones]                                                   
7. I am short so i were only super high heels- This perspective is wrong. If you are short and you were really high heels, you end up looking shorter. Wear medium-length heels and avoid very long dresses.
  [right way]
8. Sunglasses in the dark- When you are not outside and are inside, wearing sunglasses is ridiculous.

9. Leaving a hairstyle on for too long- This is not cool. Make sure to switch hairstyles often but no too often.
                                                                   [she's happy]
10. Not sure about my outfit-Be 100% happy in your outfit always(and sure about the whole thing put together)- Otherwise, you will end up feeling down and other will put you down!
You are beautiful! Believe it! Thanks for reading! x,
