Winter Style Diary 3

Hey lovelies, last week I brought you the first 2 parts of my winter style Diary  click here to read previous post. Today, I share the 3rd look within this series. I have made it simple to recreate any of these looks depending on your mood and the occasion. This grey dress from H&M is perfect because it produces countless wearing possibilities. Styled two ways, I demonstrate two styles that can be created.                 Dress: H&M Boots: Aldo Jacket: Topshop Ankle boots: Bata Necklace:

Winter Style Diary 2

In my last post, I shared the first of four winter look book, click here in case you missed the first one. In today’s post, I style the same knit dress but have swapped a few accessories and my coat for a more casual relaxed look. I live in Richmond which has a massive park and lots of cafes and plenty of “cool spots”. This outfit will be the perfect attire for walking in the park, sitting in a cafe drinking an overpriced artisan coffee, lunch date with friends on a

Winter Style Diary

Hi lovelies, am  I the only that seem to have blinked and then realised it is almost the end of year?. With less than 26days left, it certainly has me reflecting on what this year has meant to me. I look back with a lot of gratitude and feel incredibly blessed for every single moment. I reflect on what’s been the most adventurous year of my life, the year that very special friendships was made and the year where so much came together beautifully. With every month, I sought and found

Identity

Most people usually have a ton of photos, tag their outfits and job done with their style blog post however as I am not like most people, I always jump at an opportunity to use this platform to horn my writing skills, share the things I am genuinely excited and passionate about and hope the person reading it takes something valuable away or are naturally able to get  an insight into my world. Happy reading x I was born in Nigeria, grew up in what’s considered a small African family with 5

Visit Thailand

I have returned from what is unarguably one of the best trips of my life to date. In this post I will be sharing my favorite bits, places I visited and providing recommendations based on my experience. Expect plenty of food porn & beach porn. Food Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. It is known for its complex interplay of at least three and up to four or five fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet,

Holiday Lookbook

Time to go on holiday, you know you’ve booked hand luggage only as you are trying to save those coins. But you still want to slay as you were born with game. So how do you maximise your wardrobe potential whilst still falling in line with EasyJet’s  anal one bag only hand luggage policy.   Number 1: Do your research and plan accordingly My recent holiday was to Venice , I knew beforehand that it is a city paved with lots of cobbled stoned streets, there is really no point packing

Venice

“Jobs fill your pockets, adventure fills your soul”. A quote from one of my favourite bloggers Emma Hill. Documented on today’s blog is my recent trip to Venice. If you are like me, I can almost live through other people’s travel photos and feel a part of that moment. It was difficult to narrow it down to a few good ones, however I hope these give you a good sense of how beautiful this ancient Italian city is and inspires you to live your own Venetian adventure. Floating City The

Bikini As Outerwear

I live by the motto serious in front and party at the back. In fashion terms, I could quite easily live forever happily backless. Give me a backless number any day and I will happily slay it There are so many pieces in the market that focuses on baring your back. Not only is this incredibly chic, it is a look that is forgiving regardless of what time of the day it is. Nobody wears a cleavage bearing outfit before 7pm, well some ladies do, but am sure majority will agree

Styling Basics

When I first started blogging, this metallic pleated leather skirt was one of the first looks I posted click here to read. A lot has changed since that day, but one thing I have learnt is the endless possibilities that one piece of clothing can offer.   I had a afternoon date day planned with the gorgeous, Luna of swaggaismything.com and Keyma of styleweekender.com the dreaded curse of a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear almost settled in. Couple of outrageous and down right riddic options later, it was time to go

What Lies Within

Her flaws was laid bare for all to see They jeered and snickered She kept her fluidity mimicking the gentle tumble of the sea They kept watching keenly to see her flutter She mustered her strength mimicking the gait of the mountains They pushed and taunted to see her quaver She kept her fire mimicking the flicker of flames They tried one more time to see her wobble She didn’t tumble but kept her stride mimicking the stride of the cheetah Eventually she saw that she didn’t need to imitate;
