Where to Shop: Debra's Grace

You don't need to panic if you haven't shopped at Debra's Grace...there's hope for you yet.

It's probably second to Indigo on my list of fave places to shop in lagos for 3 reasons:

1. One stop shop for both timeless and in-trend pieces.

2. Variety; a wide selection of clothes/shoes/accessories and in different size ranges.

3. Most importantly, AFFORDABILITY! I have not bought 1 single item for over 7k, yes...including shoes! You know how hard it is to come by affordable high street items here in lagos, everything is overstated but Debra's grace is a breath of fresh air in that regard.

A couple of things I've snagged from the shop...


River Island Shift Dress


Papaya Sequin Top


Asos Pleated Skirt


The best part? The new and improved store is re-opening tomorrow, Sunday 13th of April, after some days off with blow out sales that you definitely do not want to miss. AND. The 1st 100 customers get a free discount membership card. Discount on already affordable items? Sweet!

It doesn't get any better ladies.

P.S: Forgive the omission. 

Address: 201 Herbert Macaulay street, opposite Adekunle Police Station, Yaba.

Time: 12pm - 5pm.

Look forward to seeing you there and please say hey if you stop by.

Little Red Dress ft. A Hair Review

Hiiiiiiii!!!!

I have missed you guys and I have missed blogging so much! I was trying to switch hosts to bring you a better reading experience but wordpress does not support payments from Nigeria, so I've been trying to figure out what to do for about 2 months now. When it started to look like too much of a "long tin", I decided to put it on hold. If I find a way out somehow, I'll upgrade. Until then, you're stuck with this :)

Today's OOTD is a Little Red Dress, shift style, and I got it from Debra's Grace Store in Yaba. Stay tuned for a post on Debra's Grace...you do NOT want to miss it!  The neckpiece, which I am absolutely in love with, is from my all-time fave place to shop, Indigo Boutique.








A little something extra is a review on the hair I have on. It's Bee Daisy Hair and it is so lush! I'm in love! My friend had on a full head (2 bundles) of 11 inches and I kept stealing glances at her hair and touching it...thick and supple and it held its curls pretty well, at the same time soft to the touch. Gasssh. I knew I had to get it. This is my second intall and I'm loving it.

Pros
  • Thick and supple.
  • Low maintenance. All I do is comb it out, I do not use anything on it, no product at all yet it stays glossy.
  • Holds curls beautifully. I curl about once in two weeks and all I need do is give it a good comb out and it literally bounces.
  • 8inches is not too short, when not curled it hits the neck.
  • A full head comprises of 2 bundles and believe me when I say it's really a FULL head. Except you're going for Ty Bello typa full, this will work fine for you.
  • Minimal to Zero shedding.
  • Pretty affordable. I got the full head for N35,000
Cons
  • Because it's full and thick, you need to spend a little time combing out the hair properly else it'll tangle and we cannot have that, can we?
With these points, I hope I have convinced you that you need to jump on the Bee Daisy Hair Bandwagon.

OOTD ft. Rukky Simone

Hi Guys!

If you haven't already heard about Rukky Simone, allow me to introduce the brand to you.

Rukky Simone is an affordable Nigerian fashion brand with ready-to-go outfits for every occasion. When I say affordable, I mean affordable! Their prices range from N2,500 to N8,500. Nothing costs more than that, nothing! Awesome right?






Anyways, as soon as I heard this, I found my way to the Grey Velvet store (where pieces from the brand are on display) and had a look-see. Most of the stuff in my size were sold out (Lagos girls no dey carry last) but I still found something I liked.





For more info, visit Rukky Simone

To buy any one of these, visit the Grey Velvet Store in Ikeja City Mall or Centro Mall, Lekki.

30 Days of Lips ft. Lady Biba

Hi Guys!

It's been soo long. Work got in the way, work...crazy stuff. I've not been able to juggle both successfully, work's been winning so far. I don't know if I will ever be able to...but that'll sort itself out somehow.

The top I have on in this post is by Lady Biba and I tell you, it was love at first sight!

Also, for day 14 of the 30 days of Lips...I have M.A.C's "Flat Out Fabulous" on my lips. I searched high and low for this and finally found it here
















Top: Lady Biba "Charmaine" wrap top // Skirt & Shoes: Indigo // Earrings: Grey Velvet


Thank God it's almost the weekend :)

Cheers!

Day 13: 30 Days of Lips

Hiya!

I have on Zaron's Lip pencil in "Prune Juice". I stared at this pencil in the store for a long time trying to make up my mind about it....I wasn't sure how it would look on my lips. I decided to try it out, I mean, how bad can it be for N800?

The verdict? I like like like a lot!

Day 12: 30 Days of lips

Hiya!

On my lips today is Zaron's Lip pencil in "Red Vines". I have to give it to Zaron, their lip pencils are extremely pigmented and super gorgeous. I had this on for practically the whole day and it stayed on like magic. Amazing stuff. 



You can purchase at your local beauty store; I got mine at the MUD store in Adeniran Ogunsanya Shopping mall for about N800.

Wishing you a beautiful week!

Day 11 - 30 Days of Lips

Hi Guys!

Today I have on House of Tara's "Kontagora"...a purple-ish pink. I saw this lipstick on someone and it looked amazing. Sadly, I wasn't as impressed with it on me...not too bad, but not really one of my favorites.


How's everyone doing? Hope you all had/are having a great weekend.

Cheers!
