What I wore: Stripes and Nude

This might come as a shocker to you but this is an outfit post! *jaws drop* LOL

Remember I’m dabbling and diversifying? It’s all in a bid to make me post more consistently.

I read a number of blogs: hair, makeup, fashion, food etc.
Of recent I think I have read one too many fashion posts so that might be the inspiration behind this post.

I am not a fashion blogger neither am I a fashionista but I think style is relative and maybe someone out there might find mine interesting.

If you ask me to describe my style in 1 word it would be ‘comfy’.
However, my sister and my good friend say I am boho/hippie(I do not agree though).

I wore this outfit to work sometime last week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And because I see them do this on fashion blogs:

Top: Apt. 9 essential

Blazer: Dorothy Perkins (from Debra’s Grace, a cool store in Yaba)

Pants: Next (I’ve had them for years and have rocked the life out of them so much so that they are fading)

Shoes: I don’t know (long story)

Bag: Michael Kors (obtained from my mama)

Hair: Twists using Noble Gold (4 packs, uncut)

Oh and have you heard of Design Essentials? It’s a product brand that makes products for people who want healthy hair and has a line for natural hair. I first heard about them on Kemi Lewis’ blog.She uses their products in her natural hair salon.

Design essentials just launched a flagship store and training centre in Ikeja(yay for the mainland!) that stocks their products.

Their natural hair friendly products are silicone, paraben, paraffin, petrolatum, mineral oil and sulfate free and include the:

-Curl cleanser

-Moisturizing conditioner

-Almond and avocado detangling leave-in conditioner

-Honey curl forming custard

-Honey and Shea edge tamer

and more.

I love the packaging and I also sniffed some of the products(they smell great!) plus Kemi Lewis speaks well of them so I’m looking forward to trying them out!

Store details:

TEL: 08033029107 or 08033264570

What do you guys think of outfit posts on the blog every now and then? Yay or nay?

Have an awesome week!

Natural hair event in Lagos!

Hi y’all, I just dropped by to inform you guys that there will be a natural hair event in Lagos on the 30th of Novemeber! *crowd goes wild*

It’s called Naturals In The City(NITC) and this is actually the 7th time it’s being held. I’ve never attended one but I’ve seen the pictures and it looks like so much fun. There’s natural, transitioning and even relaxed ladies to meet, educative hair talks, various stands where you can buy natural hair goodies and lots more. I wasn’t able to go for the 6th one because I was at NYSC camp I think but I hope to be there for this one!

This one is going to focus on protective styling. And guess what? There’ll be a product swap! So bring all the products you don’t want and see if you can swap them with people. If I go, I’ll definitely be bringing my Ecostyler gel that’s still full.

Venue: Omenka Gallery, 24 Ikoyi Crescent off Osborne RD, Ikoyi Lagos.
Date: 30th November, 2013.
Time: 1:30pm to 5:30pm
ENTRY IS FREE! *team cheapskate applauds* But hold your cash to buy some products and stuff at the stands!

So save the date and make sure you come! Tell someone to tell someone
