Five (5) Shoots making Niva’s Instagram headlines from the past weeks.

Ayyy whats up guys, hope ya’ll doing grreaattt B-) !
So I thought i should compile 5 different shoots i had from a few weeks back and explain why i liked them, and just basically show you whats been hot lately. 

Lets get straight into it:

1). The Daniel Hechter Shoot

Now, this is actually a throw back and it currently on my Instagram, you should check it out, and it was actually just a trial shoot with my friend Helix (photographer). I took it at the New Confucius Centre at my school (Unza) and this particular piece just amazed me. Helix and I scheduled an even tougher shoot so stay tuned B-) . 

2). The Puma Shoot

Now this one was actually just a thought i had when i was seated in my bedroom. I usually visualize something, then call my buddy Kaluba and tell him i need him to take a picture of me, haha. Sooo yeah, i just liked how the orange and black came out, pretty chic.

3). Kaluba’s Shoot

I know right? Why am i featuring someone else? Haha, well Kaluba is myyyumm buddy annnddd he wanted to have a shoot with his old Nike shoes (I LOVE THOSE SHOES!) , so i thought it was a great idea actually, so we tried different pauses and THIS ONE captivated me, just look at it, nothing says Old Skool RnB more than this Pic. I love it!

4). Army Green x White shoes Shoot

Now one thing you guys must know is, i LOVE navy green combined with white shoes, so i arranged a shoot, again with Kaluba lol (Terrence is busy you guys) (who is Terrence? Stay tuned Lol) .. Soo yeah, i just loved the clarity, how i edited it, though the pose was a little funny to me anyway, Loooool.

5). The Adidas Shoot

This one is a throw back too. Now heres a crazy thing about this one haha, it was actually taken by A STRANGER! yeah! I was walking inside Acacia Park in Lusaka and i saw that the building has a black-ish background, and i really wanted to match the black, grey and white, so i saw this dude coming, and (me and my whiteness) i asked him if he had a minute and he agreed. So blah blah he took the pics and hey, after i edited this one I just liked how official it looked, even though it was just a 2 minutes (even less) thing.

So thats all for today’s blog guys, hope you liked it. 

Those that dont follow me on Instagram i suggest you do that NOW! Lol >> @Niva_druberg ,and I might follow you back if you have a nice feed. Until next time!


The 5 things that shouldn’t miss in every man’s closet.

Okay so today we’re gonna talk about the five things that every decent man should have amoungst his stuff, and i know some of you might already have some or all of these (like myself) so i though we help out a few that might, well, need such advice.

So lets get straight into it.

1). A Pair of White Shoes.

Come on guys, long gone are the days when one would say, “I don’t own a pair of white shoes because its a hard color to maintain.” By now you should know that white shoes need some extra care right after stepping into them (you are not clean till you can maintain the color white, period). I advise simple, non-sophisticated shoes like Common Projects, Vans, and even Adidas Superstars. They are quite an easy get away for people that want their outfits simple and neatly done. They also help one to come up with an outfit because they easily match almost any color due to their neutral characteristic. So grab yourself a pair of white shoes. ITS AN ORDER. lol.

2). High Quality ‘Designer’ Wallet. 

A good, quality wallet gives you confidence. Now i know you might be wondering why I’m emphasizing the designer part: well it doesn’t have to be a designer branded wallet, but for a person like me i like accessories that are easily defined by their brand; talk of Cartier, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Fendi … It just doesn’t feel right to have this really good outfit on, with a low quality wallet in your pocket. It doesn’t have to be designer, but get a wallet of HIGH quality that will last long. Some months back i spent my last cash (i wont mention how much) to buy myself a Prada Wallet and up to now, I always look at it and, it just feels so dope (the texture + name).

3). Turtle Neck

You can have any other jersey in your closet, but grab a turtle neck too. Turtle necks are really nice jerseys to wear when it comes to winter days especially when you want to keep warm and look stylish at the same time. They have a characteristic attached to them of automatically making you a ‘cool, clean and nicely dressed’ person even without adding too much effort to your outfit. So i advise you get at least one turtle neck jersey; color based on the type of clothes you have (I advise burgundy, light grey or black).

4). Wrist watch(es)

Most people have the mindset of saying a wrist watch is for time; well yes it is but there is another reason you should have a wrist watch in your closet – to complete your outfit. I have walked out of my room on different occasions without my wrist watch and trust me i felt just how incomplete my outfit was, forcing me to rush back in and get it. However, I advise each man to have AT LEAST TWO (2) high quality, branded watches. Come on guys, save some cash and get two watches because being dapper requires spending actually. You can buy them according to the type of dress codes you like. Have one for killer occasions and another for daily use. You might want to pick a neutral color like black – and also brown (brown is even more classy). 

5). Deodorant 

“Buy Deodorant, Buy Deodorant, Buy DEO-DO-RANT.” You may not have enough cash for a perfume, but deodorant must NEVER miss out in your closet. In fact Deodorant and Roll On are two of the things that must never miss in every man’s closet. Go ahead, walk naked outside if you want to, but smell good while you piss people off with your indecency. But on a serious note, it is vital to wear deodorant after each shower to not only avoid disturbing the public, but also for your personal hygiene.
