TRIPLE DOSE: BLACK AND WHITE

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Hi Guys!
This post is a little different; I and Desola of The Dee Mako Blog and Unoma of Vieve Butterfly worked to bring you 3 ways to slay in white and black.

Yeah, we know white and black is pretty overused and can be boring sometimes...which is why we're trying to create a paradigm shift. Not all white and black is boring, as long as the styling's right :)








 Desola

Unoma


Top and Skirt: ASOS // Shoes: Konga

I enjoyed this shoot so much because, for once, I got to lament over my "blogger issues" such as location scouting, staring passers-by and dead batteries, with people who actually understood. Don't even get me started on the quest for the perfect(or good enough) pose/picture. Sigh. Struggles.

Make sure you check out Unoma's Blog and Desola's too to see full details of their looks and if you'd like to see more blogger collabs, please say so in the comments section :)

P.S: There's another twist to this look coming soon, don't go too far away :)

D.O.F.E & The Liebster Award

Friday, July 08, 2016

Hi Guys!

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Pere of Perez Vogue Diaries ; the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers, welcoming them to the blogosphere.
 
 
Each blogger that is nominated is expected to do the following:
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Display the Liebster Badge on your site
  • Answer the questions you were sent
  • Choose (5 to 11) blogs to nominate
  • Send 10 questions for your nominees to answer
So, thank you Pere! I really appreciate this, it means you take time out of your already busy schedule to read my blog. Now, I'm going to answer the questions you asked me:
 
1. Why did you start blogging?
I have lived with and around girls all my life and the major issue we have as regards outfits is what to wear for a particular event/function...we've all raided our wardrobes at some point or the other (if not every other day) and found nothing to wear in a wardrobe full of clothes. I started the blog to make help solve this problem and also show that you don't need to have so many (expensive) clothes to look good.
 
2. What do you like about blogging?
I like that it's very educative, if I may say so. I have learnt to write better, to think outside the box, take pictures, edit and use editing software like lightroom and photoshop, I've learnt to schedule, to multitask better (how else can you take pictures, Instagram and snap at an event all at the same time?), I've learnt to be more open and willing to learn/try new things and also to network and the joys of new friendships.
 
3. What do you dislike about blogging? (Be honest!)
The pressure that comes with it; feeling like you need to measure up by wearing the designer clothes and stuff, have the fanciest camera, rolling in the right circles...
4. Who or what inspires you?
My family, my friends, random people I come across...I pretty much draw inspiration from everywhere.
5. What does you family think about your blogging? 
They ask when I'm going to be the next Linda Ikeji and buy us a house in Banana Island. Lol. Ok really, they used to be amused by my picture taking and posing and always hunting for the best locations, but they've pretty much gotten used to it now.
 
6. What is your favorite quote? 
"Be yourself, everyone else is taken". - Oscar Wilde
 
7. If you were the main character in a movie, which actress would you want to play your role? 
Ariel in the Little Mermaid because she was sooo cute, she got to meet her Prince Charming and she also got to live underwater as a mermaid. Who didn't wonder how being a mermaid feels? Nobody? :(
8. What is your favorite social media? 
Snapchat.
9. What is your favorite quote?
"Be yourself, everyone else is taken". - Oscar Wilde
 
10. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Happy, married with kids and running a successful business.
11. Tell me a random fact about you! 
I suffer serious bouts of homesickness when I’m away from home. I’m such a baby L
 
So, I nominate the bloggers that I think do good work:
 
- Grace of Epiphany29
- Tomiwa of The New Trailblazer
- Ijenna of Mira La Belle
- Stephanie of Stephy Lately
- Demilade of Coco Bella blog
 
My questions for you guys are:
 
1. What do you like most about blogging?
2. What do you dislike most about blogging?
3. If you could do anything you wanted, make money from it and be happy at the same time, what would it be?
4. Handbags or Shoes?
5. Coffee or Tea?
6. If you had 24 hours to live and you could spend it with only one person (apart from family), who would that be?
7. What's your favorite color?
8. Favorite book?
9. One random fact about you?
10. If you could sum up your life philosophy with a song, what song would it be?
 
 Looking forward to reading your answers :)
