Bohemian Fever

This weekend was filled with me babysitting, so comfort was very key for me to be able to run after three (3) kids and I tried to do it in style. This photos were taken on Sunday and at the end of the day I realised that I think I might be ready to have kids. I kind of handled babysitting like a boss and I loved every moment of it. Okay no more going off, see photos of my outfit below



Saturday Look

Good afternoon Dearie's, Today I just wanted to post the outfit I wore on Saturday to run around. This weekend was more of a bohemian kind of weekend for me. All I wore was super girly but still breathable. What do you think of my look?

Run Down Of September

Hello dearies, hope your month so far has been amazing. So today I am going to have a short run down of my month so far.

Firstly, my gorgeous mother added another year to her life and (although I wasn't available to celebrate with her) she had mad fun thanks to my brothers and dad.

Then my cousin came visiting for almost two weeks and might I say it was blissful, we had time to catch up and have crazy fun (which hasn't happened for me in a really long time and yes I am a workaholic).

Coming from that I had some unpleasant run in with burglars at my home and this really put me down for a while but immediately after that my house lessor (which is probably the most friendly man I have ever met who isn't a family member) joined the angels to watch over the world. At first I was immensely sad but it helped me put things in perspective as I was bemoaning the loss of my properties which are totally replaceable, an irreplaceable man left this earth for good. It made me focus more …

Dark Matters

I technically stole the Post Header from the series Dark Matter which I have been into recently (If you haven't seen any episode, you are missing a lot trust me on that) and since my dress code was basically on the dark color spectrum, I can possible say the series spoke to me as my mode was far from dark (and also I might have been running late hence this lol).  I have also noticed that most of my recent outfit had been revolving around black and white color spectrum (which is totally unconscious BTW), so for this look I tried to branch out a bit but couldn't. So I am making a promise here that my next outfit post would be rid of any black or white color and would be a cool play on color combination.  Till then, I leave you guys with my Thursday work look. A little update on my leg injury, the doctor said I would soon be able to start rocking my heels again. Hopefully my next post would also showcase the newest addition to my shoe collection. TGIF people, have a wonderful we…

White And Black Can Do No Wrong

The unofficial color combination when you can't think straight for me is black and white color combination. It is safe as it is universally accepted. Asides that, the outfit you style just has a way of coming together with minimal effort on your part. I know because that is my style uniform when every other thing fails. This photo was taken last week Wednesday when I had nothing to wear aside trusting my go to color spectrum to pull an outfit together for me. I also wore flats as I sustained a knee injury at the gym earlier that week (one of the reason you need flats in your life, that is if you are a klutz like me).  I really did enjoy the outfit as it was fun and girly while remaining professional.

My Favorite Links Of The Week

Today I would be highlighting my best links of the week and why. First of, none of the articles were written by me or anyone I know but they have greatly impacted my life. I love to read (it is actually a hobby, dorky I know) and enlighten my perspective on life in generally and this has really contributed to building of my character and probably personality. I will run through the links paragraph by paragraph and hopefully won't bore you.

I stumbled upon this advice "4 Ways to Increase Job Search Confidence" and I was immediately taken because the writer was speaking to me. Generally I tend to shy away from things I know I may not be qualified to do even though I may be wickedly good at it. I kind of keep my talent on the down low for fear of either seeming like a know it all or coming off wrong. I am not a perfectionist by any means but I am one of those people who believe that all arguments or opinions should be factually verifiable (I know it is bad and I am working o…

Wardrobe Staples For Every Working Lady

Hello dearies, today I would be writing about investing in timeless pieces that are work appropriate while remaining budget friendly and I basically live my life around this pieces.
A Basic Blazer: When I say basic blazer please refrain from picking up that ugly and pain inducing blazer that is on your mind, thank you. Now a basic black blazer should have a perfect fit, inviting look and skin friendly material while still remaining affordable. Is this possible, yes it is. You just have to know where to shop (lol). I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here.

A Statement Jacket: I love a statement jacket especially those morning when you are half awake and can't be bothered to put together an outfit (yes I am one of those people who wait till the last minute to pick out my look for the day), all you need is that jacket that can pull together any piece you throw on together like these Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here

Perfectly Tailored Pant: This can't be overst…

One Of The Greatest Ladies In This World Added A Year To Her Life Today

Happy Sunday my dearies, hope your weekend was as amazing as mine. I can't even put in words the mad fun I had this weekend (I truly need more of this kind of weekends). Anyway today was my besties birthday and I just had to upload the pics of our day (okay her day).
 This pics should be captioned that moment when you are making it and haters are hating at your back (lol). Anyway, today marked the beginning of a new year in the life of one of the most amazing person I have being opportune to meet in my life. She is one of the most determined, industrious and all round hardworking but loving and kindhearted person I have ever met and I have being blessed all the way with her in my life.
We had a beach party in her honor and it was amazing fun although I lost my earring and glasses in the water but it is all good for her I would probably gladly lose more.
Had to post my outfit even if it wasn't my day. Alright back to my girl.
Happy birthday once again to one of the most amazi…

Shoe Obsession

I am one of those people who are addicted to shoe (one day I will show you guys my shoe collection, yes collection) and lately white tees. I realised that white tee are actually a must in your wardbrobe. It can be dressed up or down. Used for basically all manner ( cover-up, inner, top, you name it). So I basically have been collecting white tees of recent and this one made for a perfect corporate casual look for work today.

About my sandals, I have had it for a while now but I haven't had it on my blog yet and today it spoke to me that it wanted to make an appearance lol. But really the sandals are super cute and I couldn't be complete without it (okay maybe I will).


 As usually I had to try all manner of poses to get what I wanted and the end result wasn't too shabby.

 What do you think of my simple look. And yeah about the reason I have been away. I have been reading for my examination coupled with traveling for work and scheduling a surgery(to remove a growth caused b…

Red, White and Blue

Hello lovelies, I am happy to be back (at least kind of) and work life has been amazing for me. Today I decided to dress as corporately as I can and I loved the result.

 I know that I need to explain my where-about for the last two months and in due time I would but for now enjoy my photos of the day.
 I totally had fun taking the photos which has being a while so I am kind of camera happy. Didn't think I will miss it this much but I totally do. My combo was pretty simple as I didn't want to overdo my come back but it was still fashionably appropriate for work.

 I would have to go off the blog again in a week or two but when I get back, I promise to remain consistent. Thank you to all who have been sending me mails asking about me. I truly do appreciate it.

The Hat Game

I have never seen a cap or hat I didn't like. And it is amazing how obsessed I get when I find a new hat whether it belongs to me or not. The one I wore today is my colleague's and I got him to give it to me (I think it did fit me better that it did him lol).


 In my country, this hat is worn by the Hausa tribe. Funny enough, I have worn hats by the three major tribes in my country and native hats always have a way of coming to me. Next stop on my tribal hat hunt is the minority tribes hats  (I can totally do it).


I am still on my weight loss journey since going through a Thyroid phase late last year. The sickness is being treated and I am happy that so far I have being responding to treatments but the weight gain and heat wave I have to combat with is not really fun as my country's climatic conditions aren't exactly cool but thankfully the raining days are here once again and I don't have to stay awake all night hoping that hundred showers would make me feel bette…

Sunday Stripes

Good evening dearies and hope your week started off well. Recently I have being experimenting with my make-up and this Sunday wasn't any different. My make-up artiste and friend (fadeshynes) did this amazing nude make-up but with a bit of drama around the eye and I loved it.


 I decided to wear stripes on Sunday and I particularly love this one I have on because it is good for getting stuck in an air-conditioned room but at the same time would not leave you sweating under the sun. I cropped my pants to show of my shoes and I loved the overall effect (effortless).

 Have a lovely week and I love to read your comment on my look.
