FASHIONABLE NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS






Even if you're not the resolution-making type, it's fun to imagine the first day in the new year has the power to hit our internal reset buttons and inspire us to make major changes. I don't usually make resolutions, but I try to create semi goals  especially when they pertain to clothes.
Applied to my closet, the "Out with the old, in with the new" mantra translates into editing my wardrobe. Small adjustments actually do have the power to change the way we think about and celebrate style in the long run.
No matter what the upcoming year has in store, your style will always be a reflection of you. These tips are designed to help you take control of your wardrobe, feel empowered by it, and have some fun in the process. Plus, they're pretty simple, too.

A LIL EDGY

A LIL EDGY - Acid-wash dress and Booties
 Today was the first day of Abuja Fashion Week.
I was so excited when I heard about the Fashion Show.
Most of the Fashion events in Nigeria always take place in Lagos. And I always feel left out cos despite getting invites to all these amazing events, I can't seem to be able to make the trip down to Lagos.

We finally got our own Fashion Show here in Abuja sponsored by Mercedez Benz.
Would post pictures later.

And when I finally decide to blog, the network gets as shitty as ...
Phewwww!!!

HEALTHY LIVING - WATER
