Istanbul Diaries

Hi dolls... I've been a bit busy but I'm back in London now so decided to share my Istanbul diaries. I did not have time to take proper pictures but I managed to get one or two from my cab lol. I even got on the metro and had to take a picture!!!

If you have low esteem, Istanbul will definitely give you a boost of confidence. The men are just hilarious, you can be walking on the streets and get compliments from random guys. Most of them can't speak English so it makes it funnier when they compliment you.

As soon as I arrived, my cabbie actually stopped to get gas and he came back with a cornetto ice-cream. The Nigerian girl in me was like hope this one isn't trying to jazz me before I wake up in one alley but the other side of me just said 'go with it'...

Candy Land

Hello dolls... Don't forget the giveaway ends today so click on the link to leave your name and email. I currently discovered candy land or should I say Kandee and I'm officially a Kandee girl. I ordered some shoes from their site and let me just say they have the best customer service online. I'm talking about emails being replied as late as 11pm to conclude on items not in stock, refunds and exchanges. I was truly impressed!!!

Burgundy treats

Hi dolls... I was super excited to learn that Maju Live (a Nigerian Label) had a concession in Ikeja (Grey Velvet to be precise). Normally, I have to take a long drive to the island to purchase items from the brand but sometimes I get there too late and meet a closed sign.

Maju Live is one of my fave Nigerian brands. It's 'no rules' approach and unrivaled attention to trend and youth culture has made them a firm favorite with the trendy set. The brand is not only stylish but also very affordable.

Tuxedo playsuit

Hi dolls.. Quick post to share what I wore the other day. I'm in love with playsuits, they are the most comfortable outfit you can wear during summer and you can't go wrong in it.

I realized I don't share a lot on my blog but I just have to share this story. So my mum and her jogging partner were at it earlier this week when they saw another plus sized woman on a walk. They stopped to chat and the conversation they had is beyond me!!!

Nude and Prints

Hi dolls... If you know me well you would know that I'm a big fan of Nigerian designers. I'm all for the team 'buy Nigerian' but some of the Nigerian brands are overpriced and of low quality. Most of them claim to be luxury brands but the fabrics are cheap and the finishing tacky. 

Well this was my view until my affair with Rukky Simone. I love the prints, fabrics, finishing of all the pieces and the prices are affordable (most items are under N10000). The only thing I noticed, which really isn't a problem, is the sizes run big. I normally wear a small but I had to get extra small with this brand.

Angels wear Prada too

Hi dolls... I know I look angry in most of these pics but I promise it's just the light from the sun and I couldn't be bothered to go back in to get shades hence the funny expressions.

I've had this top for ages but couldn't wear it due to bra issues. I hate when I wear a transparent top that is also backless and my ba will show at the back (even if it's a really cute bra), I feel it looks tacky.

 I finally found the most amazing bra, not the backless and strapless, but something even better. I will share it soon (not on me lol) and also where it can be purchased.
