Rainy Day

This morning started out like any Monday morning where you roll out of bed, push yourself through all your routine morning chores, then you look at the clock and realize that if you are not careful you would run late to work. So you dash into the bath, dash out, dress up and  hit the street to work.

But unlike every other Monday, I learnt three great lesson today. One, "Always have an alternative". Two, "Always prepare a day before" and the third and last lesson is "Never forget to carry an umbrella this season".

As I waited for my colleague to come pick me as usual, the rain came pouring. As I searched my bag, it hit me, Chiamaka you forgot your umbrella. Shit!! there was no place to run to or hide. Luckily my phone rang, excitedly I picked up the phone just for my colleague to say Chiamaka I won't be picking you up today. Oh My God, where is a taxi. The taxi park is empty, no bus and I am getting soaked.

That was basically how my Monday morning went today. I came to work late and dripping wet while everyone was as dry as the sun which made me feel really sick from inside but the good thing is that I learnt my lesson.

Enjoy my humiliation in pictures, although I tried to gather myself together as well as I could.

If you notice, My pants are still kind of wet and so is my hair. Awaiting your comment on these snap shots.

  3. Lol...I love that story because it happens to me very often. How about wearing suede shoes in a rainy day? I done that because I didn't check for the weather that day :-( I had to find groceries bags to wrap around my shoes and be able to save my booties.

Suit And Tie

If you remember correctly, I showed you all My Big Reveal. So today you would be seeing it in an outfit. I woke up with Angelina Jolie's outfit to BAFTA award on my mind so I decided to replicate it while adding my own touch to the ensemble.

 Yeah, I tried it out with a white lace top. Different but me right?

 My ultimate goal was to take the look and make it as ladylike as possible without ruining the effect of the suit and tie. I loved the outcome and received lots of complements on it.
I also decide to play with grey, black and blue as my basics.
 What are your thoughts. Do you think my way of replication is cool or I should just stick to basic white shirt?


Am so sorry that I have been unavailable, I have been swamped these days that I basically only get time to sleep in the night which is mostly mornings anyway. Although I am still really swamped, I knew that I had to post on my blog. It has been way too long and I have missed my baby and my readers.

I have to skip back to work now but I will leave you guys with this snapshots. Hope you enjoy it.

I have been semi active on instragram as it is less time consuming but I promise I would soon be active back here. My vacation is starting November, so I would be on my blog every other day.


Good Day Dearies, tomorrow is my country's independence day and I am more than elated about the possibility of a holiday. Still trying to figure out what am gonna do that day, was supposed to go paint-balling with my friends but some of them have exams coming up so that has to be moved. Now am left with planning the brief holiday myself, I really don't want to sleep through out the day. But whatever happens, am still grateful for the day.

Anyway as a truly patriotic citizen I decided to wear green throughout this week but yesterday I was unable to take a snapshot of my outfit bummer hence, the omission of yesterday's post. Today since I got a bit of spare time I decided to post my ootd yippee. This break won't last long so I have to be brief, see the snapshots below

 And am also using this medium to wish my fellow blogger Jennifer Richards a happy belated birthday. Hope to hear your thoughts on my outfit and I totally appreciated the feedback I got from my last post.
