Older and more Fabulous in Black

Hey Fashionistas,

Currently listening to Need You By Fire Boy🎵….

Long time no post. I have to admit to my obvious slacking, i did promise to upload once a week but life happened and with life comes challenges. This post to meant to be a birthday appreciation post to thank God for adding one more 9year to my life. Last year, i had a birthday wish list (read here) and I have to admit 75% on the list was fulfilled one way of another, even though not the same year but still it happened. There are a few thing I’ve learnt as time passes and they include:


I have to admit growing up is scary especially when it feels like you haven’t gotten everything figured out, but the truth is nothing is ever figured out. We learn as we age and growth is very important. Clocking a new age just means you’re getting wiser.


I’m not a travel nomad but I surely take any opportunity of travel to new places and explore new things. My friends would call me movement but what better way to live life than travel the world. Hopefully this year I visit one place outside Nigeria.


I have to admit, I’ve been slacking in this but the older you get the more you realize prayer is the key to so many things. I’m not saying you should spend your days in church without work but prayer works and it keeps you in tune with GOD.


It’s easy to be lost the world of vengeance, karma and bad people. being a good person will be hard of its important to be good inside and out. The world is a bad place but remain a light in the mist of darkness.

READ ALSO: Older in brown.


There’s one thing that hits us hard and that is changes. For this past year, I’ve gone through so much changes i didn’t believe I would ever have to go through. Call me sheltered but Life did hit me hard this last year and my views are beginning to change on so may things.


Happiness is subjective and shouldn’t be place in the hands of a person. Learning to embrace the little things in life is a key to unlocking happiness.|Thank You For Reading|

|Two ways to colour block a pink blazer|

Hey Fashionistas,

Currently listening to 80’s Film🎵| Jon Bellion

While I did promise to upload a post every Wednesday, I thrive in my ability to be inconsistent but my 2020 mantra is to post more so I had to shun bad network and laziness to put up a blog post. I’ll be sharing 2 ways to colour block a fuchsia pink blazer. The blazer was purchased from thrifted pieces; an online Instagram store and it cost N3800. Style is the very essence of my survival (ish) and as a budget friendly human woman, I always look for new ways to style old pieces which is what came to mind when picking this outfits were worn.

Look 1:

I coloured blocked red and pink. While red and pink works perfectly together, alot of people regretfully hate this colour combo. This look would work perfectly well for an office outfit especially since the lovers month is days away. I used white shades to compliment the look.

Look 2

I paired 2 shades of pink, orange, red and neon orange to get the rainbow look. Call me Rainbow but I loved this look alot. It brings a sense of sunshine with it.

PS: If you aren’t comfortable with shorts you can alternate it with a trouser.

Which look do you prefer?

2020 | A New Dawn |


Currently listening to…

Please Me🎶🎶 | Bruno Mars ft Cardi B

While laying on my bed during the cross over into a new year, I couldn’t help but realise that things were different. This night wasn’t like the usual new year eves we would’ve spent in church or infront of the Tv but a calm reflection in the dark of night that a new dawn was upon us.

You see, as my mother blew her plastic trumpet, fire works went into the night sky and bangers the sound of bombs blasted away into the night, I was reminded of all the things I should keep thanking God for: life, family, shelter, good health, and friends we didn’t need to cut off every year.

For once I didn’t write new year resolutions that would probably not last till the 2nd week of February, but I has a silent resolve in my heart to believe that God would make 2020 better than 2019 and all I needed was his Grace. The grace to work harder, be prepared for any opportunities that presented itself and to be consciously disciplined in my drive for success.

2019 is gone but we keep the memories of the people we loved, lost, those we hold dear to our heart, the tasks we failed, those we accomplished and the life we lived. Goodbye 2019 and cheers to a Victorious 2020.

How to style Nude and Brown in this season

Hey Fashionistas,

Currently listening to…

Count on Me🎵🎵| Johnny Drille

As much as we like to feel like autumn exist in Nigeria (it doesn’t), it doesn’t stop us from following fashion trends and owing the fashion street. While the weather transitions from summer to fall, it is paramount to loose those sunny happy colours and adapt darker earthy tones. Don’t ask me why, it’s an unspoken rule by the fashion gods.

Pairing Nude and brown is one of the most stylish and simple ways to pair these colours. The nude compliments the brown and makes the look instantly classy. Just like in when I styled it here

When I went thrift shopping, I got the best deals for this outfit and shared how to get the best from thrifting here. I paired a brown trouser I’ve worn before here and a nude peplum blouse. I didn’t want the outfit too brown like how I did here, so I paired it with a black stiletto and white fringed earrings which I wrote was a 2019 trend here.

Happy New Month and Welcome to September…

For the past month, going out has become somewhat normal and its beginning to fit into my timetable. Dressing up is an aspect of my life I love so much and having an opportunity to dress up  is something I appreciate. I decided to curate my outfit of the last month.

Basically, I highlighted outfits I felt the most comfortable and fashionable in.

Outfit 1

A yellow palazzo and white chiffon top. I paired it with dangling earrings and my favourite go to espadrilles.

Outfit 2

I paired this hand made wrap dress with a tinkerbell inspired shoe and a purse from miniso. I loved the tinkerbell look it gave me.

Dress: handmade by me

Outfit 3

My favourite look for the month. I paired an Ankara top with a red palazzo and DIY mules. I absolutely loved the outcome.

Top: one on one clothing

Palazzo: hand made by me.

You can also read on where I rocked this outfit to here.

Outfit 6

Outfit 7

Handmade dress by me. I decided to be a red queen and show my monochrome through a different method. I paired the red dress with a red shoe.


For the last month, I’ve been reading a book called fireproof by Eric Wilson.


I’m currently on a Jon Bellion row. I can’t help but put most of his songs on repeat. It speaks to me on another level. My favourite for now would be Fashion.


You know me and movies are buddies. Asides from the recent movies coming out with I haven’t watched, I’m catching up on my favourite series while waiting for the new seasons.

I lost my boyfriend but I gained a Shirt

Currently listening to….

Don’t Jealous Me🎶🎵 | Tekno, Yemi Alade & Mr Eazi.

If there’s one thing any female wants, it’s having unlimited access to a raid their mans wardrobe. This does not however prove to be important because regardless of how many shirts you gain, it doesn’t act as a mucilage.

During a closet declutter, I came across a shirt which I inherited from a prospective boyfriend. Now my case is different because it wasn’t an unlimited access but as a parting gift. A summer whirl wind romance just like in the movie “the Vow” and when we parted ways, the shirt was a reminder of our growing love.

Fast forward a year later, the romance had died and the boyfriend long gone but the shirt, still available and ready to be worn. Thank You Fashion Jesus.🙏 while the universe did say No to my self inflicted long distance relationship, it said YES to me owning an over size shirt and being a fashion expert.

As a fashion expert, I can very much conclude such shirts are very versatile. Ladies, you know what I mean? Night wears, shirt dresses, over size shirts you can rock with mom jeans or skinny jeans. The universe did speak and I listened.

How would you rock your Ex Boyfriend’s shirt?

|I embraced my inner child| Things you should know when you visit pleasure park.

Currently listening to Mockingbird 🎶| Eminem

Being away from writing and slightly depressed from not having a job yet. I took a day to myself to hang out with a friend and enjoy a city I’ve lived in my whole life but haven’t explored.

I visited pleasure park in Port-Harcourt as a first timer. Surprising ehn! For a chic who claims to be a PH city girl, I haven’t visited one of the most toured locations in River State.

Pleasure Park is located in somewhat the centre of town and very accessible. I went on a week day because I didn’t want to be hounded by little children but you know what? they were millions of little children running around like minions. Apparently its holiday time.

Gate Fee: to gain entrance much like any place, you pay a non refund fee of N500 and a parking fee of N300 but I think those work on week days. I’ll go on the weekend to find out the price range but I’m guessing it might be more expensive.

Fun Things to Try

If you’re going to visit pleasure park and you want to have the maximum fun, these are a list of fun activities to try out

Boat Ride: they have a mini lake in the centre ish all you have to do is pay N2500 and you’ll enjoy a ride with a life guard and jacket of course.

Shooting Range: I didn’t go in because I wasn’t with enough money but I think it’s also N2500 but I can’t say for sure.

Bull Ride: I only ever see this in cowboy movies but seeing it in real life was cool too. I didn’t try it since it wasn’t actually put to use.

Train Ride: the train ride is N500. Personally I think it’s a bit fun mainly cause it will take you round the park.

There’s a merry go round, bouncing castles and all the usual things for kids.


I have to tell you the truth and I’m not dissing the cook or cooks but the food is mad average and not exactly worth the price.

Pop Corn which I love whole heartedly was a disappointment. It was overly burnt and sprinkled with milk to make up for the tacky way it was made.


It’s a serene place to visit: the air, the vibe, everything. You can just go there and enjoy the environment without actually spending too much money.

Note: this is based on my experience at the said location. Your trip there might give you a different experience. I hope it’s fun for you as it was for me.
