★Inside Zethu’s Closet★: Today’s Look

Friday Alva - Tue, 07/03/2012 - 09:43

Hello glam dolls! Guess who’s back, with epicness of great proportions! New hair, great style, change of season, lego! Some exciting news; instead of a look of the week/ weekend, I will now be posting up a new series titled: Today’s Look, which will feature the outfit I’m wearing EVERYDAY (as often as I can post) and where you can cop the pieces!  This is gonna be quite a task but you will also get to experiment and see the versatility of each item as time goes by. I hope you enjoy it!

Today’s look is inspired by the partly-chilly, partly-sunny weather in my little town. The nude-gold viscose shirt is from Truworths (R120), Leather boots from Mr Price (R190), Black knitted tights from Identity (R99) and the braided belt used to sinch the shirt at the waist is from a thrift store- creating a more hourglass shape and adding spunk to the outfit.

Since cutting my hair, some clothes don’t look as good as they used to, but I discovered a cool trick: a lower neck line makes up for the hair which I now lack! The make up is quite natural- staying true to the spirit of winter. Remember to use good lotions to keep your skin looking good this season, nothing worse than ashy elbows to blow your look ;)

Be inspired. It’s a confidence thing ;)

100 Words Or Less- by @thekidphlashy

Friday Alva - Mon, 06/25/2012 - 17:59

“Imagine you were flown off to Dallas to meet with Mark Cuban for a one on one meeting. He asks you to pitch your dream to him in a 100 words or less. He tells you that if he loves your idea, he will invest all his resources into making your dream come true. What would you say!? No pressure!”

Yikes!! Yup, another one of my brilliantly intelligent friends posed this question to me and left me totally speechless. He told me if I had to think about it, I was not ready yet. Uhmmmmmm sorry, excuse me!! That was my first reaction, but after taking a while to think about it, the message he was trying to relay started making sense.

It’s one thing to have a dream and believe in it and another to have a detailed step by step plan of how you propose to realise that dream. Until you have a detailed plan of action, a map outlining the steps you intend to make to realise your dreams, your dream remains a figment of your imagination.

What my friend was trying to teach me is that in order for you to realise your dreams you need to be ready for any opportunity that presents itself. As far-fetched as the Mark Cuban example may come across, essentially I believe he was trying to make me appreciate the fact that it is important to be able to articulate your dreams, so you are ready when the opportunity to do so presents itself. In other words, you need to be armed, locked and loaded at all times, with the roadmap to your dreams. You never know who you may bump into, who may recognise your ideas and invest in them. What I’ve learnt is simply that you need to be confident, not only in yourself, but whatever your dreams may be. Know exactly what you want from life and learn to be able to verbally demand your dreams from life. You never know when an opportunity may present itself. Be ready to take it and run.

FA- it’s a confidence thing

Zara Gretti – Teno (Official Video)

Dj Mighty Mike - Fri, 06/22/2012 - 12:29


zara gretti, teno

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wco4U0JR1ww

The “TENO” video was shot in the Prince George’s County of Maryland, U.S.A. The visual is a Margaret-Mary Joseph vision, and was directed by Champion Studios and P.K. Design. Like the song, the video’s got very high energy and fast-paced. I had a lot of fun in the process and so did everyone who was a part of the shoot. If you are photo sensitive, please watch with caution. I hope you enjoy it.

For those in Nigeria, Caller Tune Codes for Teno on MTN; send 703855 to 4100. The video is currently showing on 1Music and Soundcity tv. The release of this video led to Zara Gretti trending on twitter for a long stretch and as of this e-mail, she still is. The support on facebook and other social media is remarkable.

I prefer my work speaks for itself. If and when you post my video on your website, blog, or direct it to another to get posted (and I pray you do), please write what you FEEL in addition to the above. Please release my new video “TENO” into the universe.
