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!!!

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.

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!!!
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.

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.

Hi dolls... It rained all day yesterday but for some reason I was in a very good mood. The whole white phase ended the minute I got a hug from my friend and her face print on my top lol, see why it's hard to wear white in Lagos? Don't even get me started on stains I got from carrying stuff (dust everywhere).
Back to my post, If I had a tiara, I would have worn it instead (that was the type of mood I was in) but I settled for my mouse ears and a sparkly jacket. A few people even thought it was my birthday!!! I've always had the urge to try culottes but never got on the band wagon but as they say, there's always a first time.

Hi dolls... White is my new black. I try to avoid white as much as possible in Lagos because it's really hard to maintain the look.
First of all, I have Kenya (my dog) who loves being carried. Arthur (my other dog) who jumps on me before I leave the house.
Then we have dust everywhere and don't even get me started on people with make up who want to hug you. It really is a task maintaining white but it always looks so pretty on.

Happy Sunday dolls... Today has been eventful. It was my sister in law's sister's son's first birthday and I haven't pigged out this much in a long time. I wonder why I wore a cropped top today of all days. There was so much food and because I was spoilt for choice I had it all literally *hand over eyes*!!
I had jollof rice, BBQ turkey, chicken gravy, *continental rice* (inside joke) which is basically rice and ugwu leaves (don't ask), king prawn sauce, sausages, puff puff and to top it off, chocolate cake and haagen daz ice cream. I definitely added instant pounds after that, even a crane couldn't lift me up lol.
I realized today that my inner child is an agbaya. I had to have a party cap and even did the whole 'aunty give me cake' whine lol.

Hi dolls... My friend celebrated her engagement with an introduction on Saturday plus I had a few events to attend so I decided to wear this lingerie style dress.
I felt a bit exposed going to her house (parents, relatives et al.) in the dress with super thin straps, so I threw on my VL jacket and the look worked.
The neckpiece seemed a bit 'overdressed' with the jacket but I decided to leave it on.

Hi dolls... I wore this outfit a few days ago and I'm finally blogging about it. I'm a big fan of wide leg pants so I was super excited when I found the ones I'm wearing in this post. I couldn't wait to wear them but I did not want to style them the normal way (i.e tucked in with a vest or shirt) so I opted for this...
Hi dolls... I decided to throw on some jeans and a body to run errands today. I'm pretty sure these are one of my fave jeans. I really don't know where the tush or hips came from but I just wanted to sing 'Will I AM - Feeling Myself' all day lol.
I finally got my brows threaded and tinted at Stella's Addiction Studio in Lekki (5 Wole Ariyo road) (will put up pics on instagram later) and I loved the outcome. My brows look awesome and I don't have to draw them in for a while :)

Hi dolls... Had a traffic filled day so I'm happy to be back home cuddling Kenya. Nothing says casual like a good pair of denim, now picture a waistcoat denim jumpsuit paired with a smart shirt...!!! This has to be one of my fave white shirts (gift from my sister) so I look for every opportunity to wear it.
I am in love with this waistcoat jumpsuit. It can be worn as denim pants alone if you detach the waistcoat, pretty cool right?
Hi dolls... It rained all morning but was able to take a few pictures before heading to work. Pictures don't do this dress justice trust me, it looks amazing and the print is fantastic!!!
Shift dresses are big this summer... different fabrics, prints and styles. I'm a big fan of prints so I try not to go too crazy when I see a print I absolutely love like this one (my love for music doesn't help).

Hi dolls... Just a quick post to share my outfit of the day. Not a big fan of kitten heels because I feel I walk funny in them but I fell in love with this lady-like pair from Zara.
It's fun being the last child because I get spoilt by everyone especially my only sister. She has to be the most amazing person wit the biggest heart and even though she has a baby, I'm still her first child lol.
