MERRY CHRISTMAS + GIVEAWAY??

MERRY CHRISTMAS + GIVEAWAY??



Hello guys. I am back with a suggestion on a giveaway. But first of all, let me give you my apologies; Once again I have broken my promise to constantly post, but please bear with me, I am trying to find myself a better opportunity to earn and finally get out of the broke zone, as much fun as it seems, “don’t nobody wanna be broke”. Lol. I am working my A off, so I can finally own some Vera Sidika hair. I am a big fan of her, she is smart. Let us not judge how or where she gets her money. For the same reason I love kim kardashian and miley cyrus. I am a fan of anyone who doesn’t give a fuck. Caring too much can kill you. Therefore I wish you great and better things in 2015, may all your wishes come true, including mine, may you not give a damn of anyone’s opinion on you and just do what you love, who you love and be happy. May I get what I believe I deserve, career wise, relationship wise and may I blog some more like I did last year until mid this year. May we/I do our first giveaway. Info below!


Talking about that giveaway?!. I really want to do one, I have clothes from my previous sales and being the cheap shopaholic I am, when I see something cute and cheap, I buy it, whether it’s my size or not. Since I am not getting any thinner or curvier, I thought, why not give it away to my B4BG Followers. I don’t know if this is the right time to do a giveaway, knowing that I was away for over a month, are my girls still with me? Are we still riding? You want some dope ass tights.? Let me know, via here, Instagram, Facebook… etc. I have tights, jumpsuits, leather skirts, tops… But for now december, I want to give away the tights. Merry Christmas! Below is an example of the tights I want to give away, I have it in dark blue and Gold. Size 6 only.


If I get 10 people to agree to the giveaway, I post it up, If not, we got time, a lifetime even.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR

OOTD the cheapest ever: I only bought the skirt at 500Ksh. The rest is either bought for, borrowed or given. No shame is accepting Generosity. I wear it proudly!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY B4BG - Yearly Update.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY B4BG – Yearly Update


HAPPY BIRTHDAY Beauty4brokeGirls!
FOREMOST; I want to thank all my viewers for taking the time to come on my blog, try out my DIYs, and dropping your comments. Mostly thank you for becoming such a great big family to me, you inspire me to want to push myself to do things I never thought I could, it’s through your views and comments that I came to fall in love with this blog and every single one of you. I would say thank in so many different ways and it would never amount to how thankful I am for all of you. Kisses
Before we start, A throwback to some of my most famous blog posts. Seat tight, check them all out and remember the good times we had on this blog. It’s unbelievable how far this baby has come, and the number of hits these posts have gotten. See it to believe it



Hello my loves, I know I have been gone so long but this heaven is always at the back of my mind. My blog, My baby, My love, My first Job, My me. Something I would never give up even if I was offered a bag of money, Wait ….. I probably would but there is no way I am getting that offer unless someone is crazy enough to buy my blog name, which I also wouldn’t sell because I can’t think of a better name. So one year ago; around this time, on this day, B4BG was born. A blog that has brought me so much happiness, so many smiles, great people, great connections, great friends and a few pennies. Two weeks before November 6th in 2013, I swore to myself that I had to get my shit together, earn my first penny, and try to do something with my life, something I love. So I sold a few of my clothes (Because I love money hehe and to me that was a sign of independence) and randomly started this blog with dedication to get independent and show the other side of me to the world. My birthday was on November 5th and November 6th I became a blogger and have loved every minute of it since then. Thanks to you!


During this amazing year, from the day I have started my blog; my life has changed in so many ways. I have done acting, I have done modeling, I have blogged for other people, I have done online marketing, Instagram marketing, blog content/design advisor, print modeling, I even have human hair now (laughs**) and my biggest goal is to do a commercial, whether big or small, whether my face won’t be seen or will, I just wanna eat commercial money. Currently, my absence is due to shit load of work. But I promise you, I am still here, I am still a blogger, DIY junky, Cheapsteak shopping Addict… etc. I am still your girl. Thank you for taking this ride with me, and hold on tight, because we are still on it.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO B4BG

THANKS TO ALL MY VIEWERS

                                                                         I LOVE YOU          
Shasha Rshan Phonsi (Or whatever you call me lol)


Outfit details:
- White Corset 300ksh Kawangware
- Tutu Skirt 400 ksh Toy market

HOW TO DYE YOUR HUMAN HAIR WEAVE?

HOW TO DYE YOUR HUMAN HAIR WEAVE?
DO IT YOURSELF!


Hi my loves! It’s been so long since I did a D.I.Y and decided to do one today. It’s the first in months and I think it’s one of the best because it will end up helping so many young girls and women out there looking for cost effective ways to dye their weaves. Have you or do you have that one weave that is so great BUT it’s the wrong color? And you end up not wanting to do it, so it just seats somewhere in a plastic bag in the corner in your room. Please note that I have experienced this D.I.Y on human hair weave only! I know it sounds risky but it worked out, I coulored my weaves, full black. I have asked around on “how much” it is to colour your human hair weave and everyone says it depends on the amount of hair, colour, style  and also on the type of weave, but the starting price is 2000KSH! And I am not complaining, I get it, but why pay for it when I can do it. It’s much more fun and it’s easy. I am so excited to show you how I did that, so let’s get working on some weave. It’s a good weave day in here baby!


WHAT YOU NEED!

-          HAIR DYE
-          HUMAN HAIR WEAVE (any color)
-          ALLUMINIUM FOIL
-          A TOOTH-BRUSH
-          GLOVES
-          A BOWL (OPTIONAL)
-          A WATCH


For the hair dye, these are the two I experienced on, and it worked out great. One is for “white” ethnicity hair and the other is for “African” hair. I would advise you to go for the “Renew Hair color” If you are not after permanent coloring, it comes with free conditioner, it’s only disadvantage is that, the color is not permanent, while the other hair dye “Intensity color” will last a lot longer, does not come with conditioner and takes longer minutes to get full black on the weave. The hair dye I bought at different prices, the “african one” 530 and the white one 430Ksh. The alluminuim foil was 79KSh. Depending on how much should be used for a bundle, I don’t know, I just dyed what I could, and what remained, I will do later on, because I also need to dye my natural hair black!


The braided weave, I dyed the day before. It used to be blonde, and if you can look closely, you can see I missed a spot. The brown weave was too much for the dye I had, so some of it remained.

STEP 1:
Get everything you need, separate your hair per rows, lay out your foil and then mix your dye. Some hair dyes come with mixing tools, so you might not need the bowl.


Hair Dye products come usually come with gloves, and I lost mine. I took it out one to read instructions and the gloves are stuck on the instruction paper and I don't know where I put it.


STEP 2: Apply your Dye on the hair and mix it well. Capital WELL! Do not forget to apply at the root too. Yes it will be covered when you put your weave on but for a cleaner look, apply everywhere.


STEP 3: Fold it in the foil and let it seat for a few minutes, the instructions usually say 15 minutes but I go longer, maximum 40 minutes, because it’s not on my head, so it doesn’t hurt and I won’t perfection.


STEP 4: Wash it with water, then with conditioner, and let the baby dry out if you don’t have a blow-dryer.  #LaundryDayHoodStyle

  
STEP 5: You are done! And I wanted to put this weave on today, but it got a bit late, so next week, I will have brand new hair and will show you how it all came out. But here it is. Brown weave turned black. And blonde weave dyed black also.


FINAL PRODUCT LOOKING LIKE A 9.5 (Because I missed a few spots) . Notice the glow from the “Renew hair dye” and the “Color intensity Hair dye”, “Renew” wins on the glow, but is not permanent like Intensity. So with intensity, I will have to work more on it, add some hair oil and blow dry, straighten or curl to make it all brand new! See you next weekend, because that's when I will do the weave.


This is my favorite job in the whole wide world. It doesn’t pay but I love it and believe one day it will start paying me. It’s so much fun and I had so much fun doing this, I hope you liked it. D.I.Y season is back!

BLANKETS AND WINE 55TH EDITION. WHAT DA HECK!

BLANKETS AND WINE 55th EDITION! 
!WHAT DA HECK!


First of all, let’s scream “TGIIIIFFFF” my favorite day of the week, not only because it is Friday but also because I get to work half day and I have the whole day to pamper myself. Talk about pampering myself, last weekend I did something that most of you would think “She can’t afford that” and I will say “But she got connections”. Anyway, before I begin my critic on blankets and wine, let me just specify that it is my job as a blogger to be critical about almost anything and everything related to what I do. So I may hurt some feelings and maybe bring up smiles on some people’s faces. One thing about me is I don’t lie. I find it pointless. So let’s get down to business.


Foremost, Thanks to my awesome friend Jeremy who took me to one of the biggest, most fashionable, CRAZY event in Kenya. Jeremy and I have been friends for years and getting closer every day, I love his sense of his humor, hard work and persistence. He can get gold when there is no gold. By that I mean, He gets “us” deals and hook ups where there is no chance. There is no dull moment with him. Anything fashion related that B4BG must get its hands on, he is the MAN! I love him.


#MyFaceIsNotThatFlat

Sunday last weekend I went to blankets and wine for the first time and yes I did not pay entrance, “Told you I got connections, I know people who know people who know people that know people”, the tickets were 2500ksh per person. #ThatsShoes. Upon arriving at the event my first thought was “What da heck!” The venue was so big, and for short-sighted ladies like me, that’s bad news, the dresscode of people was totally a “What-da-heck” type of moment, You will find crazy, you will find cool, they have it all. The crazier the better! But that was not the only thing that shocked me or made me want to kick some people out.



I was amazed at how great the music was, we danced, we laughed and we drank. Not to the point of getting wasted though, “I don’t do that… uh … uh” Because I am a horny drunk, you don’t want to see me intoxicated so I stay away! Or I stand aside and watch people drink.




Personally I loved the event, it was great experiencing something different, what I did not like about “Blankets and wine” is the attitude. Yes you all cool swagged up people, I agree you look dope, you look fly, you smell good, but cut it with the attitude. It felt like an environment for show offs only and personally I am not a show off and bragging is not my thing, I like realness and down to earth people. So there you have it, the big “What-da-heck” moment I experienced. But let’s put up a sad romantic movie on a projector next time and watch them all turn human. #ThatWouldBeFun . There was another issue though… Not even Lord Jesus could help on that one.



If you do remember a few days ago it was raining like crazy! And on the day of blankets and wine, we got roasted! Literally Roasted. The Good lord laid us there and let the heat burn upon our heads. Have you even sat under the sun for so long that you look high on weed.  Seriously “What-da-heck!”. I am glad it wasn’t raining but it was too hot, Jeremy had to take his shirt off. Now mix that with the alcohol we had (I tasted) and the amount of people around… frickin what-da-heck! … By the end of the night the headache was so much that you can’t feel it anymore, because you are having so much fun.





Here is my most memorable and fun moment of the whole event! The fooooooodddd… I may be skinny, but I have a very close personal relationship with food, where does it all go? Feeds my attitude I guess. I love food! This world would be hopeless without it. 


To everyone who has mentioned that they miss me, I just want to say, “Boo boos, I miss you too. I have had days I look so dope but can’t even find a second in my day to take a picture. Or if I can, there is no one to do that for me. But From the bottom of my heart I miss you too so much and I love you” Now who’s ready for a relationship tag or am I just drunk in love? Hehehe Follow me on instagram, so we can have each other’s daily updates. I love you all. @rshanphonsi or #b4bg and you’ll find me.

OOTD - WORKFLOW. WHAT I WORE

OOTD WORKFLOW


Hello everyone, I hope your week began well. If not, “We are in it together sistah”. I am just sitting here on my desk wondering where to start my thoughts from. I have 3 days and shit load of work to do and give a presentation. I am just sitting here and thinking “Where do I begin”. Have you ever been so stressed that you forget how to do what you are supposed to do? I am just panicking and praying everything works out before Thursday. “Holy crap, it’s less than 3 days, I am freaking out”. If that is not enough, I have other responsibilities to take care of for the day and I am more than multi-tasking. So to try to relax and not scream my lungs out, because that is how I shake of stress, I decided to do what I love most; blog. Visited a bunch of blogs and remembered I had an outfit post to put up. So here it is guys, me fashion flexin at work! Okay before work! :-D



Before we go into details of what I am wearing, let me just say, I made the pants, okay I remade them. They were large and of a different style, so a bit of cutting here and there. BAM! New pants.
OUTFIT DETAILS:
Gold chain Jacket : 100Ksh
Black trouser: 100Ksh (2012) Ngara
Shoes: 2300Ksh (Online)


If you haven’t seen my last post yet, you better! That last outfit was so hot, I think I found love. Relationship tag might come up, if I am not dumped before then because I am not a good cook. Taking this week to memorize all cooking recipes I can find, because my faith will be determined soon, whether she wife material or not. But whatever, she grind material. Let’s be like Jay and B. “You grind, I grind”.  I want to be the type of wife who counts money and not dirty dishes. Lol. I am just keeping it 100, some women love to cook, some of us love to make money. So where my soul mate at? Let’s grind baby!




I love random posts; they are most honest and more fun than planned posts. Speaking of planned posts, I am working on 2 awesome D.I.Ys beauty tricks that you will love, almost like the “60 ways to use Vaseline post”. Thank you for 30000+ views, makes me feel so loved. And I love you all to the fullest, more than this crush/love whatever it is I am feeling for that bae... Yes for real. I’d give it up for my blog; After all, heels are not designed to chase after love. tihihihi 
Lovely day everyone!
Sneak pic of another outfit I totally loved!


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING

WHAT I WORE - LEATHER AND GOLD

WHAT I WORE - LEATHER AND GOLD


Hello my loves, I have missed you so much and spent the week thinking of what to post today, and trying to squeeze in time to take the photos. I hope everyone is doing great. I am doing awesome.
For those of you who are aware, I am not Kenyan, I am Congolese. But please note, I am from Congo Brazzaville. Not DRC. There are two Congos, so two countries with 2 different presidents, tribes, languages, etc. We both speak French and Lingala, although the Congolese from DRC speak Swahili too, so that makes them our brothers from another mother. But we are the best! Hehe. 
So august 15 was our independance. we turned up that same night. I am the type of person, whom, if I have a new outfit, I will wear it about 5-10 times for a number of consecutive weeks, then get something new and forget about that one for months, even years. I got a new T-shirt, and every time I think about dressing up, it’s the first thing that comes to mind. This is how I styled it. Enjoy! I also got new hair that I love because so many people (men) are mistaking it for my real hair.


These photos were taken the morning after the “turn up”. Can you tell how much I love you? I wore dirty clothes so I could post on the blog because it’s been ages. With that topic in mind, who knows how to iron leather? I always burn them.


The Good Lord did not bless me with height but he blessed me with the gift of looking tall in photos. If I was this tall in real life, I swear to you all I would never seat down.


I know my heel is so short, but it’s because I can’t walk in high heels, short heels yes. Although I recently bought high high heels, but all I plan to do with them is walk five minutes then stand or seat. Don’t be ashamed to wear short heels, falling down in a perfect outfit is more shameful, but if you do, get back up and pretend nothing happened. Poker face.


Outfit details:
-      Leather T-shirt 800Ksh Ngara. (too expensive for my budget, but I was upset and didn’t feel like bargaining)
-      Leather tights 150Ksh Ngara (Back in the days when it was still a good place)
-      Gold ankle strap heels 2300Ksh Online
-      Gold Chain bracelet : Free (you all know I love free stuff)
-      Hair (Long story. Lol)


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING

WHAT TO WEAR TO A TV-SHOW

WHAT TO WEAR TO A TV SHOW


Hello guys, how is everyone doing? So a few days back I was called to appear on a TV show and the first thing on my mind, “What da heck!”. I am not into fame, some may think, “but you have a blog, people know you, you can’t avoid it”. But it’s for the right reason that people know me and I want to keep it that way. We are all sisters here, ain’t nobody better than anybody. I want to be known for my work, my blogging; my creativity; my originality (hoodness/realness) and other. The reason I am pointing this out is because the reason I was asked to appear on the show was not because of my blog, nothing related to it and it’s not what I want to be known for.  And the next question on my mind was “What to wear on TV?” I have acted before and it’s not the same thing, so I started to put some things together and there were Yays and Nays but I still want to share my options with you and give some personal advice.
P.S I am a good girl, I won’t do anything bad. Wait, Why am I trying to put a halo on my head, let’s be real, I am no angel, but I ain’t dumb. So let’s check out my little fashion faux pas and fabulousity.

OUTFIT 1
This is what I wore, and I really loved it. These are moments I thank God for giving me a flat stomach and a flat booty. I look so small and thin, Straight out of the runway, oh wait, no, straight out of a magazine. When shooting for this outfit, people on the streets thought I was crazy, stopping in the middle of nowhere and just posing. I got so many stares but it was fun.
Lace Body suit – 50ksh (Kawangware)
Red pants – 400ksh
Gold Strap ankle heels – 2300Ksh (Online) “I love dope deals”
Handbag – 2700Ksh (Online)
  



OUTFIT 2
This next outfit was one of the planned outfits I picked out for the day, I thought, it’s better to have darker colors on camera because maybe the brighter colors won’t help  when editing. So I went for plain color outfits. Leather is trending and I thought it would be a great choice, I look on trend and sexy but classy and fun.
Floral top – Gift
Leather skirt – 50Ksh
Heels – 2300Ksh





OUTFIT 3
Simplicity goes a long way sometimes, but sometimes it just goes crashing. In my opinion this is not a good outfit for TV, or it depends on the TV show. But I think, I look more like I am going clubbing, maybe it’s because I have the wrong hair and wrong shoes. They say shoes can make or break an outfit. I just crushed mine. The make-up is also a fail to me and the whole outfit is too simple, lacks style and personality.
Bodycon dress – 30Ksh (Don’t judge me)
Red pumps – 2000Ksh (Ngara)




Thumbs up if you think, I chose the perfect outfit to be on screen and check out some more of my look-book posts, similarly, a collaboration with local and international bloggers on fashion interviews, the link right below.


For photoshoot deals, shopping deals... Hit me up. Another of my hobbies is digging up awesome deals; it’s like gold-digging. Also check out my photo-shoot and book yours to upgrade you porto-folio and more…
