Instagram Roundup | July

Inspired by many other bloggers out there, I have decided that at the start of every month, I will begin doing an Instagram round up of some of my favorite Instagram posts from the month before. Since August is now here, here’s a gathering of what went down in July. I got ombre green box braids, I got to be creative with friends, I finally shared some photos I had taken of  Xandria, and my thoughts on the Naked Illuminated Trio. I also got to enjoy West Coast life by hanging out on the beach. Overall, July was full. It definitely felt like I was taking advantage of the warm weather. *Honesty moment. Some of the below were taken in June, but were shared in July… 🙂

Tilda Kimono on Etsy

You guys, the moment we have all been waiting for is here: Tilda Kimono is LIVE on Etsy.

I know you have been keeping tabs on Tilda throughout the year on both of her Instagram accounts (@Badgaltity and @TildaKimono), and I know that I post about her kimonos a lot, (a lot, a lot.) In fact, most people, when they ask how my blog is doing, simultaneously ask how Tilda Kimono is doing. That makes me so exceptionally happy.

One of the things that lights me up the most in life, is seeing people follow their dreams, or get their hustle on. This is why I will never stop promoting Tilda Kimono. I have a feeling this collection is going to move fast so make sure you check it out here -> https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/TildaKimono. I would also make sure you bookmark it, because this is well all future collections will drop!

You’ll find the full collection on her Etsy page, but scroll below for a preview:

Momma T x TildaKimono – An Epic Collaboration

So I figured it was about time for my momma to get some of the limelight, and I also figured you were all overdue on a reminder of how amazing TildaKimonos are–so here we are. If you follow myself (Comfygirlcurls) or TildaKimono on Instagram, these photos may look very familiar, but now is your chance to view them again in all their high-quality glory.

Here is the run down: my friend is an amazing designer who makes hand-made Kimono Robes. (#BuyBlack, #VancouverDesigner, #GirlBoss style, if you know what I mean?). Then you have my beautiful mother–Momma T, as my friend Courtney has recently christened her. Momma T is freshly fifty, and looking fine (#BlackDontCrack). My mother is a huge fan of Tilda, and is arguably the biggest. (To date, she has five TildaKimono Originals.)

So a couple months ago, the three of us got together to make some magic happen. Tilda styled my mom, I experimented with makeup artistry and photography, and Momma T posed and on looked good. Here are our results:

Momma T looking feminine, fierce, and flowy in her pink-patterned TildaKimono, yellow velvet dress, and fringe heels:

Photo Shoot for Tilda’s Kimonos (Behind the Scene...

I was feeling sort of nostalgic for the sun, the beach, and good company, when I realized I had a whole collection of photos from the famed TildaKimono Bikini photoshoot that the world hadn’t seen yet.

So first, let me give you a bit of back story. Many months ago, Tilda asked if I could model some of her Kimonos. First of all, I was extremely excited (and honoured) to be asked, and second, it would give me the opportunity to go to the beach, and rock a bikini. (In case you weren’t aware, I have a mild Bikini buying problem, but that’s another story for another day…)

Through another talented friend of ours, Xandria (who you can read about HERE and HERE), we met Daniela, who is an absolutely amazing photographer who would be taking the fashion shots for Tilda.  (You can check out her work at danielaarbajephotos.com.)

In short, everything came together beautifully; the weather, our schedules, the people that got to be involved! And it all worked out to create some pretty rad pictures. While Daniela worked her magic, Xandria had my camera in hand, and took some bomb behind the scenes shots!
