Outfit of the Day

This week has been so busy thus far but definitely need to share my OOTD. I am wearing a comfortable crepe cropped jumpsuit with a low back from Zara. The shoes are to die for. I loved them immediately I saw them in the store and I couldn’t resist the urge to get the shoes (Dairy of a shopaholic).

I’m excited about all opportunities coming my way.

Enjoy your day.

Favorite Nigerian Designers: Orante

My love for this designer goes beyond her exquisite and eclectic prints and designs. Her collection has been showcased at the New York and London fashion week. The prints are playful and definitely a runway to everyday fashion.

I believe God orchestrates our lives down to the very second, causing us to be at the right place at the right time so we can meet the right people that He ordained before the foundation of the world.

Favorite Nigerian Designers: Titi Belo

Over the next few days, I would be sharing my favorite Nigerian Designers. Top on my list is Titi Belo. I came across Titi Belo’s collection during Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2015. Her spring/summer collection 2016 can be best described as sexy yet subtle, easy to wear with all the comfort one expects from an outfit. Did I mention affordable ….Oh yea and I couldn’t help but snag pieces for myself (LOL).

Valentine’s Day – High Expectations

Yay…My first blog post. I am so excited to share my journey with you.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone.

I had a conversation with my mum yesterday telling her how excited I used to be about Valentine’s day. When I was younger, I would be counting down the days to February 14th, Hoping all the guys that liked me would drop chocolates, cakes, perfumes,etc.

February 14th 2014, I was in Los Angeles with my husband (was my boyfriend then) and I was praying and hoping he was going to propose as he surprised me with the trip. I was so expectant and he shocked me and didn’t propose (LOL). I remember being nice to him days before and after I didn’t get the ring, I started to be mean… Fast forward, he proposed in Nigeria March 22, 2014.

IMG_1613Valentine’s day puts pressure on people in my opinion and it’s either a good or bad day based on your relationship status. The interpretation of love nowadays is “When I say I love you, you must give me something in return” which is wrong. I advise, love yourself and treat yourself if you are single. If you are married, you can either take your spouse for a romantic dinner or just sit home and give your spouse a foot rub. Don’t put pressure on yourself because you want to make someone happy. Don’t go break the bank because you want the person to be pleased with you. Simple appreciation without any monetary value attached can go a long way.

So ladies and gents, any high expectations today, Feb 14th 2016. Or what high expectations did you have for previous valentine’s day?
