Color Therapy:Yellow

It seems like every summer, I find myself crushing over a specific color. Last year it was cobalt blue and this summer, (if you can call the weather we have been getting summer) I am totally loving yellow. Anytime I am in a store, I find myself gravitating towards this color. I already have so many yellow pieces and I have to consciously stop myself from buying more. I also changed my bedroom color scheme, and my new duvet set and area rug have yellow accents. For now, it’s the color yellow,but  who knows what color I will be digging next year!:-)

Are you guys loving any particular color this season?

Small Business Highlight:Chic Therapy Accessories

Hey guys, happy Tuesday. The last small business highlight in the giveaway series is, drum roll please....Chic Therapy!


What is your mission?
Chic Therapy is an online store that offers eclectic and fun African textile accessories. We incorporate traditional African fabric with others and create pieces that fit the contemporary lifestyle. It is a celebration of beauty and our vision is to fuse the vivaciousness and eccentricity of African prints into basic, ready to wear pieces.

 Where do you see your businesses in 1 year? 2 years?
Right now, I am making plans to diversify and metamorphose into something bigger. In two years, I want to have broadened my demographics and brand and I want to be an established fashion house.

Who is your target audience?
Chic Therapy primarily targets women age 18-35. However, our audience includes anyone that loves unique and quirky fashion.

 What products do you offer?
My handmade products include necklaces, earrings, brooches, bangles, hair accessories, prêt-à-porter ankara skirts. We also carry vintage apparel.

 What first sparked your interest in the fashion and design industry?
I naturally developed an interest in fashion because I was constantly surrounded by flamboyant and beautifully dressed people while growing up in Nigeria. When, I was younger my mom also had a fashion/tailoring shop and this also heightened my interest.

For the 3rd anniversary Small business highlight giveaway, Chic Therapy will be giving one lucky person the items below.

Hey guys, happy Tuesday. The first small business highlight in the giveaway series is Obia Natural Hair Care.The brain child of Obia Ewah, a US based Nigerian with a dual degree in both Chemistry and Biology, Obia natural hair care is a brand of natural hair products made from pH balanced, non-toxic, and herbal based products.

Currently, Obia offer products for men and women and these include His Shampoo Bar, Curl Moisture Cream Curl Enhancing Custard, Curl Hydration Spray, Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar, just to mention a few.

Obia, The founder
 I recently mentioned that I cut my natural hair due to my inability to tend to it daily, well I think Obia may just have solved the problem with their daily curl hydration spray. Once,my hair grows to a decent length, I definitely will be trying out this product. 

As part of my 3rd anniversary/small business giveaway, Obia natural hair care will be gifting one lucky person items (Curl Moisture Cream 4oz,Curl Hydration Spray 8oz,Curl Enhancing Custard 12oz & Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar 4oz) from their hair care range.
