Jumping Horses

Hello Loviesssss,

How are all doing? I always try to blog on mondays but yesterday was one mad day at work. I almost got into trouble with my boss because he thought he gave me an instruction he didn't; this made me go all the way to Lagos state secretariat for a meeting and everyone knows how terrible i am with that part of lagos. I decided however that instead of getting into trouble with the LASTMA officials, i decided to play smart. 

When i got to the popular traffic light that leads you to the secretariat (ALAUSA), i parked and asked a lastma official for directions and the guy offered to take me there himself. I was hoping i wouldn't have to pay for the help. Long story cut short, he was really helpful and of course i paid for the help. He even said i should call him if i have any issue with LASTMA or if i need LASTMA officials for my wedding...LOL. The power of....'thank you for helping'.

Anyways on to today's post; i wore this outfit to church on sunday. The skirt fabric is actually one of my mummy dearest wrappers i converted. Its an original hollandis fabric, called the jumping horse.
I decided to pair it with this simple yellow bell sleeve top. I noticed anytime i wear this top, i look like i am bleaching....abeg i am not o...lol. I think the color works well on my skin...LOL. 
I also thought to jazz the look up with a brown leather sash and red pumps.

Thanks for always reading my lovies.

That Dress we Love...

Hello Loviessss,

How are all doing? How was your Easter break? I woke up this morning thinking... arrggghh...back to reality; work & Lagos traffic mode. 
For me the holiday was much needed. I had planned to stay home for most of it but for some strange reason, whenever there's a long weekend its always full of activities. Mine was largely spent attending some easter church programs, visiting family, window shopping, visiting some new spots in my neighborhood and i tried to rest too.

Anyways, today's post is a short one; I got this Asos wriggle dress from my darling sister blogger dressed2dnines (she's got really lovely stuff) sometime in November last year and i just got round to wearing it this break. I love the fit and midi cut of the dress and to be honest, the Asos wriggle dress is one dress i wouldn't mind having all of them. There's a baroque one i've got my eyes on. I also don't mind that its almost an anthem...lol. 

So i have seen a lot of fashion bloggers style it beautifully but for some reason, i had difficulty picking out what shoes to wear with the dress. I didn't want to wear red or white shoes like i've seen most people wear with the dress so i ended up in a dilemma. To be honest, i would have loved to wear either burnt orange, burgundy or plum shoes but seeing that i don't have those colours in my shoe rack, i had to make do with these ones. 

What do you think? What look is your favorite?

Girly Girl

Hello Loviesss,

How are you all doing? Hope you had an eventful weekend. Mine was somewhere in between because i spent most of saturday resting, watching Come Dine with me, Eastenders omnibus and My Family (Those are some of my favorite Tv shows btw :-P) and then went on to have a very busy sunday.

Anyways i wore this outfit to church because i wanted something comfy and wanted what could very easily swing from church to any other event. This lovely dress has been lying in my closet for a while and it got me thinking how i rarely do the girly look.

I've been asked a number of times what my style is and i usually say very chic, classy, subtly sexy and comfortable. In fact, anywhere between Jackie O, Michelle O and perhaps Audrey Hepburn's style would typically be me. But for some reason, i gravitate more towards the pencil skirts and dresses, clean cut pants etc and not the girly look.

I really had fun in this look and should probably wear dresses like this more often. What do you think?

Thanks for always reading lovies.

Hair Post

Hello Loviessss,

Hope you had a splendid weekend. Mine was spent doing a much need general overhaul on myself. 

So saturday, i went to the salon, got my Mani/Pedi and massage done, then i decided to steam my hair. I am one of those people who loves getting my hair done in the salon. It can be quite stressful doing it by myself and truth be told, i enjoy all the head massage i get when the products are being applied and massaged into my scalp...lol.

I took a few pictures of the process; forgive the poor photographs, they were taken with my phone.
Thanks for always reading lovies.

 After i took out the cling film wrap
I used my ever faithful Texture My Way shampoo & Conditioner, then after washing, i mixed the conditioner with olive oil, coconut oil, carrot oil, shea butter and a generous amount of pure honey and then i wrapped it tightly with cling film while getting my mani/pedi & massage done. 
 After washing the conditioner et al off
 Bantu knots i did when i got home
