1. I got the black and gold bag as a gift from my mother when she was travelling overseas in 2014. I love that it matches with everything I wear and is spacious enough to carry all my essentials.



2. My teddy bear, Precious, was a gift from my sister 15 years ago. I could not find it in my heart to let her go when I was giving away all my other toys because she is the perfect snuggle buddy.



3. I love knee-high shoes, making my black knee-high sandals I got from a friend a great gift.



4. I am content knowing I have my make-up bag with me. I cannot live without it because I feel incomplete without any make-up on.



5. My UGG boots are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I keep them in my car and wear them any chance I get, especially when driving.



6. I like trying out new hairstyles when I am not shooting for Umlilo, but I prefer to have a weave because it’s less trouble for me to maintain.



7. I love the summer season because I get to wear my swimsuit brand, Twenty Swimwear, which I launched a year ago.
