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:
-Almond and avocado detangling leave-in conditioner
-Honey curl forming custard
-Honey and Shea edge tamer
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!
LOCATION: Angels Super Store, 88 Awolowo way, Ikeja by Fadeyi, beside Holy Trinity Hospital.
TEL: 08033029107 or 08033264570
OPENING HOURS: 9-7, Mon-Sat
What do you guys think of outfit posts on the blog every now and then? Yay or nay?
Have an awesome week!
As I might have mentioned in a previous post, Casa Bella is a Nigerian store that sells natural hair products like Giovanni, Cantu, Taliah Waajid, Creme of Nature etc as well as other hair and beauty products. At the moment, they have a deal on Dealdey for 50% off on a N3000 voucher. This simply means you will be paying N1500 for a voucher worth N3000 so you’re saving N1500. So you can buy N3000 worth of stuff from Casa Bella with this voucher having only paid N1500 for it.
You can use the voucher at any of the following Casa Bella outlets:

~A hair documentary will also be screened and discussed.
~There will be a product swap as well so come with all the products you would like to swap(Don’t bring empty containers oh!).
~There will be stands selling all sorts of goodies from essential oils to conditioners to accessories, name it! (All those products you’ve been eyeing but didn’t order because of delivery costs will be there! I know I want glycerin, aloe vera juice, tea tree oil and Jamaican Black Castor Oil!)
So clear your calendar and try your absolute best not to miss it.
Till next time,
Peace, love and good hair!
