Contrasting Hues

Hi,

How is your week going? Mine is going pretty well. Tuesday Night was movie night and had a chance to watch “Girls Trip”. I have to say I was pretty impressed with the movie and it was hilarious. I have to commend Tiffany Haddish who played Dina in the movie, she killed her role. She definitely brought her A+ game. In every girl squad, there are different personalities but there’s always a crazy one? I think in my group, I definitely get the award for the crazy and funny one, LOL. In your group, which one are you? I would love to know.

#MadeinNigeria: Nigerian Designer Spotlight – Osuare

Hi,

I am too excited to share all about this brand with you. When I thought about the #MadeinNigeria series, I came up with the list of brands to feature. I came across Osuare and fell in love with the authenticity in our culture through the hand crafted designs. In this life, growth happens when you move out of your comfort zone and take risks. I contacted them, blogged with the amazing pieces and got to know more about the brand. The brand has been featured in many publications and worn by many public figures.

What do you think about my new hair-do, i wanted something that would complement the  african heritage that oozes out from the pieces. I am wearing a piece from the Unbroken SS16 Collection and paired with pearl earrings and black shoes. This is definitely a piece I can rock to a wedding? Would you?

Hi,

How was your weekend? Mine was relaxing. I am starting a #MadeinNigeria Series this New Week and I’ve got a new Designer on the spotlight today. I love finding Nigerian Brands and in support of #MadeinNigeria products.

My sister wore a top from this designer, I liked it and wanted to know about the brand. I spoke to the designer, such a humble and funny personality and conducted a mini-interview  (LOL) to learn about his brand. This brand has been seen on many people from media personality Lamide and Zainab Balogun to Top Model Tarmar Awobotu. I am starting my week with a simple yet classy look from the brand. Guess the price tag of my dress? Let’s find out below.

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

Hey Guys,

Happy New Month and Happy Independence Day:)

How did you celebrate Nigeria’s Independence Day? I went food tasting with my Client for the wedding event in December. After, I attended a concert with Don Moen and other Nigerian Gospel Artists. For anyone living in Nigeria, we are in a recession and people are discouraged and not hopeful. In addition to that, I have been hearing a lot of people losing family and friends. I was encouraged after the concert that despite the circumstance in life, your focus should be on one person “Jesus”.
