Hurray, I recently made the list of Top 32 Nigerian Fashion Bloggers (Based in Nigeria) on Midecoker.com. Mide Coker is a fellow woodin style rep and I met her at the official woodin store opening at Ikeja city mall. I am excited to be on her list and also get to know other fab fashion bloggers that made the list. You should check out her blog and read the feature here.
Happy new Monday darlings. Heading to work this Morning, I pondered on what made humans tick. One minute they are friendly, reasonable and sane, the next they are querulous, foolish and spewing bile in different languages.
I had an experience with a handful of new “friends” last weekend and it renewed my commitment to carefully select who I choose to enter my world and associate with. There is a scripture in the bible that admonishes us to “lay aside every weight” It literally means to lay aside everything that can constitute itself as a weight in your life. This includes distractions, ignorance, inability to listen, guilt, job, business, lifestyle, wrong friends, association or fellowship.
So today I pray you find wisdom within, to identify the weights in your life, so you can cast them off and run the race of life more swiftly and surely. Have a lovely day and remain increasing productive all through this month. Muah!
Hello style lovers! Recently, I got a call from Desola of Deemako.com to feature on her double dose segment and I was thrilled. She left the choice of the fashion theme to me and I vacillated between androgyny and rock chic but decided on androgyny. The deciding factor was the fact that, am such a ‘lady’ every day, that it’s a relief to be somebody else style wise.
Dee defined androgyny on her blog as “Androgyny can be defined as the balancing of feminine and masculine traits. If you are female and wish to look androgynous, you are seeking to eliminate or minimize some of the feminine aspects of your personality and appearance, and promote or maximize many of the masculine aspects (the opposite applies for males)”.
Special thanks to Nellies for outfitting us for this post and more. Keep refreshing this site for our feature on them.
Happy Thursday darlings. Last weekend I had the dubious pleasure of visiting the National Theatre Lagos after over 20years and it was a bittersweet experience. Seeing the theatre in its current state of beautiful neglect make me almost sad. Some parts of the theatre especially the front was obviously still be maintained and beautiful for the public pleasure but inside told its own sad story of neglect.
I was there to attend the Organo Gold grand opening in Nigeria and I must confess I was stunned at the turn out and huge success testimonials of their staff both home and abroad. Listening to them I almost wanted to quit my job and become an Organo Gold ‘diamond” distributor lol.
Jumpsuits are one of my personal style lifesavers. I choose to wear this fab blue jumpsuit for style, comfort, ease of movement and instant chic factor.it was a scorching very sunny day and I wasn’t in the mood for style geometry. Thankfully it felt as good as it looks on me, so cheers to jumpsuit fabulosity!
I am thrilled to be featured on the Theglowingcolours.com recently on the "African Bloggers Killing It" segment. Special thanks to Lily Okoronkwo founder and Creative Director of www.theglowingcolours.com for the love and encourgement.
Excerpts from the interview: With all the recent news about African achievers including Ghanaian sculptor, El Anatsui’s grand win as a recipient of the The Golden Lion For Lifetime Achievement, we firmly believe that every individual should have a vision especially when you want to build a brand or meet your personal or financial goals.
We are happy to share this interview and we are certain it will inspire you the way it inspired us.

Have you ever offered your affections freely but faced in return a rebuff that was far worse than rejection?
Have you ever taken it all in—the abuse, neglect, indifference, fake sincerity, humiliation…believing that a change was imminent but that never came?
What of the lies that are glaring—but deeply trusting—you choose to ignore.
He walks in—you come alive.
She walks out—you die inside.
You are aware that your union is headed towards only pain, that all proclamations are glib lies told your ears.
“But how can I survive without the touches and the kisses?” You ask. “…the company, gentle assurances, the promises, gifts, exceptional endowments and prowess?”
By taking a stand, dear friend, and getting weaned off the bad addiction. Because if you don’t, someday soon you are bound to come into a pain that your heart might not contain and then realize—when it is much too late—that you offered your heart to be mulled by bitter torment prodded only by nothing but Wasted heat.

Maxi dress are a girl’s best friend in my opinion. It helps to cover all evidence of over-indulgence or love handles and still manage to give the wearer a flattering silhouette. This lovely maxi piece from Nigerian fashion label Bibire Designs comes with a belt, for a dynamic fit. You can go from playful to chic with just a tie of the belt, as seen by my pictures above and below.

Happy Monday Darlings! As I sip my strawberry flavored black tea this morning, I pondered on decisions and the factors that influence its process and the resultant consequences.
Decisions are a crucial part of a man existence with the inbuilt power to destroy or create. It matters who you are listening to! Guide not only your heart and mind but your ears! What you hear forms your thoughts, which in turn form your actions and shape your decisions.
Base your decisions on God's word and you won't be sorry.
