It’s been way too long!
If I start to explain why I’ve been away, this post will turn to a Nollywood movie with parts 1-4.
But it would be a great injustice not to explain so here’s a summary of the reasons why I have been gone for so long:
Hey beautiful people,
Did your week go well? Mine was just so-so.
I hope you’ve entered for the giveaway that Nafisah and Oge of Coily Head of Hair and I are having.
It’s my birthday tomorrow by the way! I will probably have a post up tomorrow but in the event that I don’t, I just thought to let you know. I will be a quarter of a century old and I sure do feel old! 😦
You know how you have so many things you wish you would have achieved by a certain age and then that age comes around and you’ve basically achieved nada on your list of goals? You don’t? *cough* Me neither! *nose grows Pinocchio style*
Anyways, here’s the rest of my Instapicks Backlogs and they are sort of a lot.
Instapicks of the Week is back *confetti*
I will be starting with some of my picks from the time I was away before we go back to normal.
They should be done in about 2 or 3 posts and will be called Instapicks Backlogs.
For Instapicks Backlogs, I will be using my old posting method where you can’t see the handles and captions not the method I used in this post. Sorry 😦
I know I’ve been MIA; I’m sorry.
I’ve just had a lot on my mind and slowly but inevitably, blogging sank to the bottom of my priority list. I’m working hard to change this guys, I promise!
One thing that keeps me sane in my day to day life is mapping out everything I need to do.
Usually, I do this in my head.
This is almost always a big mistake.
I am someone who cannot even remember what she wore to work on Friday. My friends have often told me I have a selective memory; I like to think I’m simply plain ol’ forgetful.
So you see why mapping out plans and to-do lists in my head is a recipe for disaster?
I decided to start writing things down and storing things for later in better and more organized ways than just cramming them in my head.
Cue, note taking.
It’s the first day of the year and guess who’s back from an unplanned sabbatical!
In the days leading up to today, I was so excited and then 9pm yesterday comes around and I’m like “yeah, I’m going to bed guys”. In the words of Wizkid, “I can’t explaiiiin”.
It’s been a hot minute since I did an outfit post.
Every now and then, I stumble on some awesome, really wearable pieces in my mum’s closet that she’s had since I was little or possibly before I was born.
This blast-from-the-past denim kimono is one thing I just had to take. Continue reading
No Instapicks today. Boohoo!
However, this post is long overdue!
Remember when I went for NITC 12?
After leaving NITC, I went to Rele with Dorothy, Kanyinsola and Desola.
Rele is an art gallery on Lagos Island that I’d been seeing on blogs and Instagram so when Desola suggested we go, I was all for it.
When we first got there, we recognized it straight away. This is because of the blackish wood-panel wall that we had come to associate with it thanks to people’s pictures on blogs and Instagram.
So first things first, we spent like half an hour taking our own ‘Rele wall” pictures.
If you missed Instapicks last week, please accept my sincere apologies for not posting.
You see, what had happened was… I don’t even remember what happened.
Let’s all hold hands and sing the theme song of Frozen as we forgive and let it go.
I’ll more than make up for it with this post because you are in for a picture overload. Brace yourself!
Thanks to ‘Denike, I found a new way to post the Instagram pictures and videos here in such a way that you can see each person’s handle, caption (which on some occasions is even doper than the picture) etc!
I’m so excited!
You know how you spend some good money on buying braiding hair/attachment/extensions and on paying the hair stylist to make it for you? Then you spend a good amount of time sitting down to get the hair braided and by the time you’re done, you can barely feel your butt? Then 4 weeks down the line the hair starts looking old in your eyes and you’re tired of it?
Girrrrl, been there, done that!
I’m going to share with you 3 easy ways to revamp your braids/twists and give them a new look so you can enjoy every single kobo you spent!
This week, I wasn’t so present on Instagram and I hope this doesn’t tell in the pictures.
How are you guys doing?
I’ve been slightly overwhelmed with work but I feel a bit refreshed now, thanks to the weekend. Hopefully this refreshed feeling doesn’t vanish by Tuesday!
Anywho, here are my picks for the week:
