Hi Guys!

So this weekend promises to be a very eventful one, there are so many things happening and I'm trying to plan properly so I don't miss anything.

Here's what's happening, if you're interested:

Fashpa Yard Sale
The online fashion store will be having a yard sale with loads of amazing discounts.

Cointreau - Versial Shopping Party
You get to shop amazing fashion and beauty brands while sipping on Cointreau.

Redefining Finances
Hosted by Glory Edozien of the inspired by glory series, this event will allow women discuss there challenges and success and also provide opportunities for other women to learn and realise they are not alone, especially with regards their finances.

I will try to be at all of these events and if you're interested in shopping, discounts or financial enlightenment, you know where to be.

The Denim Shirt Series: Throw it on

Hi Guys!

So, still on the Denim Shirt Series. This time, I wore the shirt as a Jacket and with a Pencil skirt, so 2 in 1 right? Lol. I find that whenever I wear a dress/top with thin straps or without straps at all or a body suit, I'm quick to reach for a Denim shirt as a sort of jacket. Infact, it's now a habit but I'm not complaining...I'm a creature of habit.

Shirt: Zara // Skirt: New Look // White vest: Max @ The Palms //Crossbody: Forever 21 // Converse via ASOS 

So next time you feel a bit cold or you just want to cover up your arms, pick your Denim shirt rather than a shawl or sweater.  You'll look instantly way cooler, without trying hard too :)

The Denim Shirt Series - Swing Skirt


Hope you are enjoying the easter holiday as much as I am...whether you're attending the many events, weddings or just spending time in bed with movies in your PJs. Work resumes tomorrow, so make sure you make the rest of the holiday count.

The second way you can wear your Denim Shirt is with a swing skirt. Swing skirts are so comfortable to wear and they come in different colors and lengths. 

Shirt:Max  // Skirt: Debra's Grace // Belt: Bershka // Flats & Purse: ASOS

The Denim Shirt Series - Jeggings

Hi Guys!

I've been wanting to do a post on Denim Shirts  for a while now, seeing as I have quite a number of them, a very unhealthy and unexplainable obsession. Thanks to Segi of ForStyleSake and her posts on The White Shirt Series which I'm really enjoying, I decided to give this a go.

Like white shirts, The Denim Shirt is pretty easy to style and can be worn with pretty much anything to almost anywhere. Talk about versatility. I started this blog because I wanted to show people ways to look good on a budget; making the most of the pieces you already have in your wardrobe. I know I've gotten pretty carried away with other things but nothing like a denim shirt to bring me back to the point...and I want to believe that almost everyone (or at least 95%) owns at least 1 denim shirt.

The first way you can wear yours is with Jeggings. 

Shirt: Max @ The Palms N4,000 // Jeggings: Balogun Market N1,500 // Shoes: Zara €49.95

I opted for heels because I didn't want the outfit to look boring, but on a regular day, I'll be replacing the heels with flat shoes/sandals/slippers depending on where I'm headed. This is pretty much my every day look...I literally live in Denim Shirts and Jeggings, because comfort. 

P.S: Look how I'm all smiles for the camera, you can tell how much I love my photographer (hey joey girl! :* :* :* )

Have an amazing week!

OOTD: Animal Print

Hi Guys!

Today, Nigerians in Nigeria get to exercise their civil right and vote their preferred candidate for President of the country. Therefore, compulsory holiday. Therefore, time to blog, wash hair, tidy room among other random things that work does not ordinarily allow me do. This explains my ability to put up 2 blog posts in one day.

I got an animal print set from Fashpa that I absolutely love...well, the top part. I'm still trying to gather enough courage to wear it with the matching pants, I feel like I look like a Tiger in it. Help! Lol.

Until then, I'm sticking to plain bottoms.

Print Set: Fashpa N10,500 // Shoes: ASOS 

There's a sale currently going on, click Fashpa for amazing deals at even more amazing prices. Also, the store will have a stand at the Mente de Moda event holding on Easter Sunday...hope to see you guys there. Full details on the blog soon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.



The Beauty Boon X MAC Lipstick Haul


I find that I'm doing a lot of beauty posts lately and it's really surprising, considering I'm primarily a fashion blogger and I can pretty easily go days without wearing ANY makeup. My love for lipsticks however keeps pulling me in and I'm not even complaining.

The other day, my sister was buying makeup online and she buzzed me to check some of the stuff out (such an enabler!). Of course I found something I wanted. MAC's Heroine has been on my want list for a while now and I've given myself so many reasons why I do not need it. We ended up getting both Sin and Heroine from The Beauty Boon.

L-R: MAC Heroine and Sin

Both lipsticks are matte, however I found Heroine to be more forgiving to my cracked's not too drying and applies smoothly, how matte should be.  Sin on the other hand applies same as Ruby Woo...very dry and sinks into every crack in your lip. It's still a lovely color regardless and I think exfoliating and adding a touch of balm to soften the lips before applying Sin will do a world of good.

Got both for N5,000 each, which is expected in light of the current FX situation. It'll take some getting used to though.

Anyone tried any of these lipsticks? I would love to know your thoughts.

Easter Beauty A'fair

Hello Guys,

I attended the Easter Beauty A'fair that held at the Anchor events Centre in Ikeja on Sunday and it was fun. Well, it was fun for me seeing a lot of makeup goodies on display. Some of the beauty stores with stands at the event included Beauty Kink, Maybelline, Hegai & Esther, Talking Faces and Sleek. I went with my friend Anu and we warned ourselves before we got there to stick to a list of things we absolutely needed and not spend frivolously (even if I wanted to, my bank account no gree me spend anyhow *sigh*).

Anyhoos, if you weren't able to attend, I have a couple of pictures to share with you and also pictures of the stuff I got.

And what I got...
L-R: Jioney Long Lasting Lip Glosses, Marbrook Extremely Soft Eyeliner, NYX Lipliner Pencil, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, Marbrook Dip Eyeliner

Marbrook Dip Eyeliner in Black - N1,200 from Talking Faces

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk - N1,450 from Beauty Kink

                                         Marbrook Extremely Soft Eyeliner in Black - N1,000 from Talking Faces

                                     NYX Lipliner Pencil, NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in Prune - N850 from Beauty Kink 

                                                     Jioney Long Lasting Lip Gloss #18 - N1,000 from Talking Faces

The only product I've previously owned is the Marbrook Extremely Soft Eyeliner and I can swear by it...the blackest eyeliner in the whole wide world (well, until I find another, but I seriously doubt that). I also have the pencil in a deep blue and it's amazing guys...simply AMAZING! I'm a convert, and so when I saw their liquid eyeliner and brow pencil, I knew I had to try those too.

When I try the rest, I'll most likely do a review and let you guys so my thoughts.

Cheers xxx
