Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Hi dolls... Here are a few gift ideas for Mother's Day (tomorrow the 15th of March). Get your mum the perfect gift but don't forget to show her how much you love and appreciate her!!!

New in: Quay Australia

Hi dolls... I recently came across a really cool sunglasses brand on Instagram Quay Australia (@quayaustralia) and the best part is how affordable everything on their site is. Quay is pronounced as key and I love the quirky, cool range of sunnies.

As soon as I stumbled on their Instagram page, I had to check out their website. Apparently they started in 2004 but launched in the international market in 2009.

The best part is you can also purchase their sunnies in store (some shops like Topshop, Urban Outfitters etc) and online (ASOS, Nasty Gal etc). ASOS currently have some of their sunnies on sale from £12. They offer international shipping on their website so you can order from them directly to get more options.

Food Chronicles: Ayamase

Hello dolls... If you are into spicy food then you would love this post. My aunt once made Ayamase (I think that is the spelling lol) and I had never tasted anything like it before. 

There are different methods of making this dish but my method has to be one of the easiest!!!

The best part about cooking this dish is you don't have a lot of cutting or chopping to do. You also have a lot of free time to do other things while cooking.

Food Chronicles: Okro Soup

Hi dolls... So this is completely out of my comfort zone but I promised to share this post and a lot of people are counting on me so...

If you know me, you would know I'm a very picky eater. Its easier to count the things I eat and scratch off everything else from that list than to ask what I don't eat.

I'm not big on African soups. In short, I don't eat any soup (Egusi, Okro, Afang, Ogbono, Edikiakong, Banga, Owo, Efo, Waterleaf etc) but not eating something does not mean you shouldn't know how to cook it.

I can only touch swallow and by swallow I mean garri with Okro & stew. There is a difference between Okro & stew and Okro soup.

I decided to make okro soup with the help of my fave food blog afrolems but added a few of my own little touches.

Treble and Bass

Hi dolls... the second I saw this 'fit, I knew I had to have it. I love music (who doesn't) but I know I can't sing to save my life. 

The only people that suffer my vocals are my family members because I can turn any statement to a song lol. 

The pictures were taken with my iphone so the quality isn't the best but I just had to share this outfit with you all!!!

Out of focus..

Hello everyone... It feels like forever since I've been on here and like the title of this post, I feel like I've been out of focus for a while now. A lot of major projects are happening at the moment and I'm super excited to share them but I have to keep mum for now.

I got my little cousin to take these pictures a while back (while I had silver braids) and forgot to take my camera off manual focus so the pictures are a bit blurry. I love taking pictures manually and I've never really thought of it as anything well until I saw these pictures.

These jeans have got to be my new fave jeans of all time. If you follow me on instagram, I did a sneak preview of this post a while back and I expressed my love for the jeans.
