Hello merry people,
Yes, I know you have noticed I now use merry for everything. It’s December, what can I say. I have had the busiest days this week and it looks like my Saturday will be busier, Lawd, help me!. Is this APC rally giving anyone else a headache? Hopefully the amazing events coming up this week will help alleviate it.
Clan Diaries started its first ever secret sale (you get a first time user NGN 3000 Uber cab discount), the poster says you need an invitation so yeah…I’m probably not doing that, I don’t have time to be embarrassed over nothing. If you really want to attend their ‘secret sale’,I’ll suggest you contact them via email – it’s on the poster below.
On Saturday, we have:
The first ever Nigerian Bloggers Yard sale,which I am absolutely looking forward to as I would love to see how a yard sale in Nigeria turns out and also get to buy amazing pieces from fashionable bloggers closets for NGN 2000 and below. Yes, NGN 2000 and below, I did not forget to add a zero. There will be no multiple sizes or colours as there will mostly be just one of each piece. On the upside jewelry and accessories are mostly ‘one size fits all’ and fashion bloggers have the best of both. I hear it starts at 11:30am, no Naija/African time as Early birds get the freshest pieces. I would exhibit If this Saturdays ‘To-do’ list wasn’t so long. It’s sad though, as I have tons of amazing stuff in my wardrobe I do not use anymore or never get around to using because they are too small or big.
You let Black Friday whizz by and haven’t done your Christmas shopping? No problemo, make up for it this Saturday.

Hello Gorgeous people,
It’s December, yay!!! my best month of the year for some reason I am yet to know. It probably has something to do with sales, Christmas, sales, the build up to the new year, sales. Oh did I mention sales multiple times?
I was going to travel to Ghana this month but so much stuff came up and is coming up so that plan is on the back burner for now. Ghana is literally next door but somehow, I have never been there. If you know of great places to visit or stay at in Ghana, please let me know.
My resolution for 2014 was to blog more and travel to a new country. I think I have somewhat improved in my blogging. Travelling to a new country this year has been challenging so I’ll keep it as my 2015 resolution and work harder at it.
There are a couple of amazing events lined up for December ,my next post will be on these events. If you are reading this and know of fun, upcoming events this month, kindly comment above (the tiny comment thing close to the title of this post).
I do not want to jinx it but I feel like December 2014 is going to be awesome. I just have that feeling in the pit of my tummy, let’s call it merriness.
I wore this to attend an education exhibition on a Saturday. I wanted a look that was fun and flirty.
I got my skirt from Debras Grace (DGL), a store on Herbert Macauley Street Yaba, it came as a set- cropped top+skirt for about NGN5,500
The vest, I got from asos a couple of weeks ago for 5 pounds, click here and here for similar options as the exact shade I have is sold out. The sandals I got from HouseOfDebola on sale for NGN2500, aren’t they just the cutest?
This is my favourite shade of lipstick for now, Bobbi Brown ‘Soft Rose’.
a number of people asked about my hair. I did a wash and set at the salon, that is shampoo+conditioner+hair moisturiser+ setting lotion+ rollers. I did not use heat. I took the rollers home, kept them on overnight and took them off in the morning. Perfect curls,Voila! I should probably buy a set of rollers to avoid annoying my hairdresser.
I honestly look forward to hearing from my readers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Merry December.

Hello gorgeous people,
Last saturday, I was at The Social Place on Sinari Daranijo attending my first ever natural hair event/ the 9th edition of ‘Naturals in the City’ ( I read about it on The Kink and I). It ended up being a lot of fun. Thoughts of ‘the relaxer’ had been crossing my mind…shhh, don’t tell anyone…but this event totally cured me. My natural hair enthusiasm has been renewed.
I ran into friends, familiar faces, inspirational people and a couple of bloggers such as Tuke Morgan of Tuke’s Quest , Sisi Yemmie, Natural Nigerian, Sandra of Naija Girl Next Door, Deola Adebiyi of Omoge MuRa, Barbara of Barbara & 1923, , Simi of Those Natural African Curls, Gbemi of Buzzed by Beauty, Dabs of Naija Hair Can Grow, Sandra of Life and its Chances , Lolade Cameron-Cole of Namaste Organics and Josephine Odion of It’s me Didi. I arrived pretty late so I did not sit in on the lectures, I hear they were pretty good and about length retention. There were a lot of Natural Hair products for sale form brands like Olori, African Naturalistas, Beautifully Nappy, Aweni Organics, Locitude, Tunmise Naturals, Natural Nigerians. Overall, this event was pretty good- I got to network. Will I be attending the next Naturals in the City event- Yes!

Hello Beautiful People,
I have been a terrible blogger for the past week ,the excuse: my phone broke and laptop broke. Hopefully, I will be better this week.
Apparently, there are lots of events and festivals coming up in Lagos this month. I decided to put up a weekend look.
I went with boyfriend jeans because they are super comfortable and breathable, when compared to skinny jeans…need I say more? There’s also a choice of bags- The Big black one would be for gals that love their stuff -moisturisers, hand creams, sanitizer, makeup. The darker purse is a relatively medium bag for gals that like some stuff, It can also be worn on a casual friday at work. The cream clutch is for night-time, turning this look into a day-to-night look. Lipstick, car keys, wallet, loose powder and you are good to go. The bright shoes add some colour to this outfit.
Fashion tip: Carry a bag that is relative to your size. Petite women should not carry huge bags as the huge bags make them look even smaller and big/tall women should stick to bigger bags, as tiny bags will just make them look bigger.
All items can be gotten on the asos website and can be delivered to Nigeria, free shipping with orders over £15 and £3 delivery cost with orders below £15 . What bag do you prefer? I would love to hear from you, please let me know what you think.
For more information on all the items click here or check out the individual items below.
Blue ripped boyfriend jeans
Vince Camuto Jace wristle brown clutch bag £39
Black Dolly & Rose croc shopper £15
Step hem glamour girl top £8
Aldo gallington £30
Court shoes £10
Newlook inspire red aztec buckle belt £4.99
Have an awesome week.

Hello Beautiful People,
I am playing serious ‘catch up’ with my new years resolution to post more.
Last weekend, I decided to wear a bunch of stuff from my very frustrating River Island online purchase experience. I picked out the cutest yellow shorts ever – right length, right shade and did I mention breathable material?…..seeing as this Lagos heat is constantly on the rise. I paired it with my old-ish purple Bershka babies. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on my hair so I did a ‘wash and go’ style. It’s amazing how much afro/kinky hair shrinks when it touches water. Please keep the comments coming. Have an amazing weekend.
….is Pharrell’s HAPPY playing on repeat in anyone’s ears or am I the only person addicted to that song ?

Hello Beautiful People, Friday was ‘dress down day’ at the office and I was inspired to do a tomboy look. I got these really pretty flats recently and decided to put them to good use. I’m yet to get a bow-tie so I used a high chunky necklace instead (I got it at the Lost in Lagos Event, December last year). I tailored my Sisley jeans, they turned out a bit tight but I rocked them anyway. I decided to do two looks- flats and heels because I absolutely love my new black heels and never miss an opportunity to wear them, as they are so comfortable and go with everything. I should probably get two pairs so I don’t wear them out. I got the Vince Camuto’s from www.heels.com.ng

Today was pretty awesome.
Nina and I had bloomingdales appointments but we decided to ditch because we were so sleepy (you don’t want to know what time I went to bed last night). We went in for the new look casting session at the Dubai Marina Mall and had lots of fun fooling around. I loved what Nina’s mom was wearing particularly her necklace. We were given 40% off vouchers for new look stores so we decided to check out what new look had for summer.
Nina snagged a beautiful pair of nude peep toe heels (nothing new there-she has like kazillion pairs). I saw two pieces I really liked, the most amazing orange wedges (I cant believe I stopped liking wedges a while back) and a beautiful teal/turquoise dress. We headed off to Oasis Center where I saw the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while, I had to take a video (I’ll post it later).
We headed back to Nina’s where Carly joined us. I loved what she was wearing too especially her shoes and bag (can’t believe I didn’t take a picture of her bag). I ended the night by going for an awesome house party on the Palm. I had to change into flats- I chose to wear my white h&m pumps but somewhere along the line someone spilled coca-cola on them 😦
Overall today was a good day.
the lighting isn’t so good here but I wanted to get a shot of the back of my head with the headband
