We love to wear sport outfits. They are chic without having to actually go to the gym. How great is that? Sport Luxe has become more and more popular. Just because you dress down doesn’t mean you have to lose your style. 

Our outfits have clean lines, bold colour stripes and comfort. It can be as simple as wearing mules or graffiti and embellished trainers are currently big trends for spring/summer. The mules trend isn’t going away anytime soon, loving it!


We fell in love with a khaki puffer jacket thats as high-fashion as it is practical, whats not to love? It’s like marmite – you either love it or hate it. 

By the way curly hair rocks, You’re rocking your natural hair and you’re beautiful for it. Seriously. You’re gorgeous.

2017 has just flown by so fast, we honestly can’t believe it has already been an entire year since we started Being Her. It hasn’t been easy but in the best kind of way. We could never have imagined that this crazy journey would be so exciting.

Huge sacrifices were made, but united we started our blog together. We were inspired by a true passion for fashion, we noticed people were hungry for real inspiration. So, we set up our blog to share our journey in the hope of showing a realistic view on life, while expressing our different personalities. We want to tell the world that you should embrace your disability or flaws and not hide from them. We feel it is important to challenge the world’s attitude and views towards people with disabilities.

We love combining our great passions in life; travel and fashion. Our blog gives us the opportunity to widen our perspective. The more you see, the less you hate. Prejudice is a big part of the human condition and the more cultures you experience the more you realise they are not that different from us. Being Deaf isn’t a barrier, being scared isn’t a barrier. Be brave, be courageous and new experiences will alter your life forever.

At times it has been a little overwhelming for us because it’s our job to keep up the momentum of Being Her. What makes us feel strong and positive is taking up new challenges and fighting back from failures with determination. We have experienced many difficult experiences, but no matter how many up’s and downs we go through, our experiences have brought us closer together and made our relationship stronger because we understand each other.

We have always liked to set ourselves targets and our aim for 2017 was to travel as much as we could… We were fortunate enough to travel to Greece, Lisbon, France, Iceland and Malta. We gotta keep travelling, whenever we can and our first visit in 2018 will be to Denmark. Travelling is a passion that must be fulfilled.

One of the many highlights of 2017 was being featured in ELLE South Africa, CNN, Blavity, Konbini, Marie Claire South Africa. Travel Noire and were happy to collaborate with Daniel Wellington, Airbnb, Illicia, Nanawax, Breast Cancer Care and Happy Socks. We are also excited to be working with a new agency, The Presley Group based in Los Angeles, what an amazing opportunity. It’s been a wonderful year, one where we managed to break down many barriers. With hard work and dedication we aim to make 2018 a year to remember… we’re ready to rock and roll. Our interview with Forbes Woman Africa out now in Forbes Woman Africa Jan 2018

We absolutely love the stylish looks we have created, the boho pieces that will never go out of fashion. We love to wear tribal, colourful and free-spirited yet beautiful prints. The clothes you wear reflect your personality, making us feel bold and full of life. There are no rules when it comes to wearing a hat, it will always make an outfit never break it. Boho chic is one of our all-time favourite style vibes.

So, let’s see what adventures await us in Year Two of Being Her. From the bottom of our heart, we wanted to THANK YOU to each and every one of you!

We wish you the most magical year ahead.

Lots of love!

If there is one thing that everyone should invest in it’s a classic leather biker jacket. We found the cheapest and best quality jacket cost £69.99 from Warehouse. It’s one of the best faux leather biker jackets we’ve come across. It goes with absolutely ANYTHING. Throw one over a floral dress and ankle or high knee boots for a chic yet laidback style. Maybe wear yours with a shirt and jeans for the perfect day-to-night outfit!

Flares, flares, and more flares! If you’re lucky you’ve still got an old pair of flared jeans in the back of your cupboard (we can wait while you go check). Because they’re officially back in the fashion game. In our eyes, they never left the fashion game but we’ve always loved a good pair of flares! The reason for our blog: we want to see this latest trend translated onto the high street. Whenever a certain item makes a comeback we never see that much of it in street styles. 

Flares have always been popular through fashion history, bell bottoms in the 1970s were a big hit. While skinny jeans are a great staple, I think it’s time to spice your wardrobe up with some funky flares. Not only do they look super flattering on, but are amazingly comfortable and make you look taller, slimmer and who doesn’t like the appearance of longer legs?. We love wearing flares, it gives any outfit an extra edge, an effortless style. You can match them with a shirt or turtleneck, whatever your choice you’ll look amazing! 

You could pair them with the beautiful t-shirts from Twinship. We are obsessed with these fabulous t-shirts from the Eritrean twin sister’s Feven and Helena. We love their style, ethos and creativity. They launched Eritrean clothing online, with the tagline 

“MAYBE SHE’S BORN WITH IT. MAYBE SHE’S HABESHA”

You may have noticed that everyone is wearing faux fur and shearling coat’s right now. Leopard print and shearling is always in fashion
and they are by far the most useful item in our wardrobe. So stay warm and swagger like a 70’s star!

The best thing about this look is that you can express your personality through clothing, which we love to promote but not many trends allow us to do.
All you need to do is pull out any clothes you wouldn’t normally wear together and create your own style!
Have fun being you x

We spent one week on the beautiful island with our gorgeous family friends. We thought we’d like to share with you all.

Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, that sits just above Libya and below Sicily – the perfect stop-off into Europe. It’s impossible not to love this lovely island, there is a year-round sunshine, more beautiful beaches, a vibrant nightlife and a very rich culture.

Valletta is the most beautiful city and a capital of the island. It is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites which is 500 years old. The gem is rich to see and explore, with fascinating historical buildings around every corner.

We spent a few hours in Valletta, we wandered up and down the narrow streets admiring the buildings, especially the doorways and we fell in love with everything we saw. We wish we had more than just a few hours to explore more in Valletta and this is definitely not a goodbye, we will be back!

We’re wearing a very colourful and gorgeous print dress with the bell sleeves from Nanawax. You can wear in two ways, top and dress with fashionable trainers that go with everything in your wardrobe.

Hope you are enjoying these pictures.
