ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

Its the last day of 2014 and I'm glad y'all are here to witness it.
Tomorrow's a new year, new beginning....
Can't wait to see what 2015 holds!

BLACK AFFAIR

Compliments of the season darlings!
Hope y'all are having a great time.

HOLIDAY SPIRIT

I can't believe that Christmas is just 4 days away!
Seems like just yesterday we started the year 2014 (cliché, I know. lol)
Well, I'm glad y'all are here with me to see the end of this year.

RUFFLES N DENIM

I seem to wear this skirt a lot these days, and to think I got it for only 5pounds!

MAKE IT LAST

After spending 5 years in Uni wearing black n white 5 days a week, I thought I would be fed up with the combo by now.
But alas, I love it more everyday.
lol

BLUE BELLE

I Can't believe that 2014's almost over.
It seems like just yesterday we were saying the 'Happy New Years' n 'Welcome to 2014'.
How time flies.

MR. PRICE

Get ready for hot new looks, from MRP!

DIY - OMBRE HAIR

Seems like I'm the only one who hasn't jumped on the Ombre Hair band-wagon.
I'm sure y'all are used to my being a lastma by now.
lol
Well, I decided to try it out but I couldn't risk giving my weave to a hair stylist who might not do it the way I want or swap my weave for something cheaper (don't be surprised, scarier things have happened).
So
I decided to dye my weave ombre myself.

HEY LACEY

Hello! 
Anybody home?
Oh, Hi darlings.
Thanks for sticking around.

YELLOW CROCHET

The sun was truly at its peak today!
Phewww!
 Long Time no Blog!
I know, I know.
So sowie for the long absence

DOUBLE LEATHER

You know how one piece of clothing or something random cam inspire the creation of an outfit/ensemble, well that how this look came about.

SHADES OF RED

Hello darlings!
Hope y'all had a great weekend.
Mine went by so fast. 24 hours in a day doesn't seem sufficient these days.

DOUBLE PEPLUM

That annoying moment when you wear a really nice outfit but your pictures don't turn out so good.
The weather just messed up my pictures today. Some were really bright while others were super dull.
I had to add lighting to a couple of them to brighten them up a lil.

1ST OCTOBER

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
Today's Nigeria's 54th year in Independence.

STRIPES IN THE SUN

The weather in this part of the country is always at its extreme.
When its cold, its really cold and when its hot, the sun is hot enough to fry an egg!

FLORAL N KICKS

I shy away from mini dresses as much as possible. I wore them alot when I was much younger and 3 sizes smaller.
I wear them once in a while; I've got a few un-worn mini dresses in my closet though I gave majority of them away.

PORSH N BOOTS

And I thought I would not get to wear these boots.

OLIVE GREEN

I only recently found out that this shade of green is called Olive Green n not Army Green. 
lol

BLACK, NUDE

Finally get to wear this lovely shirt dress my sister got for me a while ago.

TREND ALERT - FRINGE

And no, I'm not referring to the hairstyle (which on the other note is so in right now, I mean everyone's rocking the fringe hair, well except me.)

TOP BEAUTY TIPS


Beautiful is a feeling. It’s presence of mind, a strong body, a glow from the inside out. It's being comfortable in your own skin. It's a lifestyle. We might be too busy to look after ourselves the way we want. But I've researched and found easy ways that can help us look good, healthy, harmonious and beautiful without stress.
I've been able to work most of these tips into my day-to-day activities, and so can you!
So here are 25 beauty tips that you might find helpful.

DOUBLE GREY

You would all agree with me that Kim Kardashian's a Super Style Star.
Her style is flawless and sophiscated.
On closer examination, you would notice that most of her pieces are nude, black, and white.
Her style has evolved over time and has gotten better and better especially after getting together with Kanye.
I must say he affected her style positively even though a lot of people would argue with me on this.
Nway, Kim's recent style is geared towards a minimalist style and that's my reason for loving it.

PEPLUM LOVING

I've been spending alotta time by myself these past few days and I've been loving every minute of it! lol
I wrote a lot, mostly items I need to buy, lol. I also tried to make plans on things I need to do within a period of time. While trying to do this, I took a pause.
I'm a huge planner, I plan my activities of the day in my head, what I would have for breakfast/lunch, how I would style an item in my closet even if it takes me 2 years before I wear them. etc.
But I've come to realise that most times things don't go the way we planned them to go and then we are highly disappointed.

85

This is a very belated post.
I've had these pictures on my computer for a while now.
I was shot by my friend and photographer, Nonso K at a very nice location (I know you can tell the difference, hehehe). I've been super lazy to go and pick up the main pictures from him. I keep procrastinating.
So while doing laundry this morning, I saw the dress in my pile of clothes and I just thought I should post these 'sample' pictures anyway.

FINALLY....

I finally put up an outfit post!
I finally get to wear my gorgeous booties!
I finally ... oh, that's all.
lol

TMI TAG - 20 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME






Forgive my long absence.
I've been down for a while now.
Firstly I entered a cab, 'one chance' (my naija peeps would understand this berra) and got robbed of all the cash I had on me. After mourning my loss for a few days, I fell sick. 
But now I'm all better now and ready to take over the world! lol

BLACK N YELLOW

Hi darlings!
Guess y'all had a great weekend.

Just wanted to share the outfit I wore during the weekend.

ANNE ELISE REAL HAIR - REVIEW

I finally get to post the review on the Anne Elise Real Hair I talked about a while ago.

CULOTTES

No, Its not a skirt.
Its actually a Culotte, Check out the full post on this trend HERE.

WHAT'S IN MY MAKE-UP BAG?

So, I've gotten a couple of questions on how I do my make-up, the products I use etc.
This post would cover the make-up products I use. This is not a review of any of the products mentioned.

SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a way for bloggers to get to know each other and a way for readers to know a little more about me.

GATSBY-INSPIRED






I did a post on 1920's fashion yesterday (check out the full post Here).
And obviously that inspired today's outfit.

THE GREAT GATSBY







1920's has got to be my favourite era and this is mainly because of the fashion.
Drop-waist dresses, Glitzy, deco-inspired jewellery, Printed head scarves... Bold, Blinged and Beautiful!
 The movie, The Great Gatsby (seen it like a hundred times) re-awakened my love for this fashion era. And, I'm quite sure I'm not alone in this obsession.

SIMPLY STUDDED

ANNE ELISE REAL HAIR

Gorgeous hair!
I received an email a while ago from the CEO OF Anne Elise Real Hair , a virgin hair extension company, to review one of her hair blends.
 I had read a review of one of her products on a blog and it was full of praises about Anne Elise Real Hair.

CASUALTEE

For some reason, my blogger hasn't been working for the past few days.
Was super excited when I tried it this evening and the page loaded.
Wheww!

TREND ALERT -TROPICAL PRINT

In what seems like a sea of ugliness really (but quite refreshing nonetheless), this explosion of color and chaotic mix of all the flora and fauna of beaches, forests, gardens, islands and whatnot is exactly what we’ve been waiting for to balance everything out, if not to make us enjoy the hot season properly. Fashion wise.

SCRIBBLES

I got this midi dress on sale from MissRebel for only 2.99 pounds! 
lol
Hi darlings!
Guess y'all are doing great.

WHITE OUT

Long time no blog!
lol!
Many apologies.
Been really busy lately but I promise to make out time at least once a week to update the blog.

TREND ALERT - TULLE SKIRT

This statement piece has made so many appearances in the blogosphere as well as on many street style divas. 
Basically it embodies everything us girls love about fashion, and going all the way with the tulle skirt is acceptable. Sexy stilettos, red lips and ponytail. At this point nobody cares what top you’re wearing, so glamming it up or going understated with a plain tee is up to you. 

RED AFFAIR

Hello Hello!
Just wanted to quickly share the outfit I wore to a wedding today.
I've had this dress for about a year n a half now and I'm just wearing it for the first time.
Cos of the mesh detail (that's transparent), it took me a while to wear it but I finally did.

PRISTINE WHITE

HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY!

BOOT-CUT JEANS

I'm such a huge fan of Victoria 'Posh' Beckham's style. Her style's very chic and classy with a touch of edginess and she's the queen of Boot-Cut Jeans!
She brought it with her from the 90's and has rocked it many times, many ways.

CETTE ONLINE

Hi Hi!
Guess y'all doing great.
