Hello 2014!

Looking back at my posts from this year, i must say, i truly found my style which is one of the amazing advantages of blogging. I also experimented more with things i usually wouldn't wear and i love that because it helped me figure out what works for me and what doesn't. 
I want to say a big thank you to you all for commenting, keeping up with my posts and following! This was a great year of blogging thanks to you, and i'm definitely anticipating what 2014 has to offer.

Happy new year everyone!

Happy birthday

There is something about birthdays that get me really excited. I don't know if its the fact that another year is added to ones life (which i think is alot to be thankful for) or that you get to reflect on the past year and see what you want to do differently, It might even be the feeling that you're growing up. Whatever it is, i personally see birthdays as a blessing. My birthday was on the 20th of this month, while my mums was on the 21st and we went out to dinner with the rest of my family, and we had a blast so i thought i'll share some of the pictures with you guys.
The holiday season is here and naturally there are a lot of holiday parties coming up so i put together a few looks to give you all some holiday party outfit ideas. You can watch the video here.

Happy Holidays!

Leopard Coat

The snow makes everything look so magical, but yet it can be a nightmare; walking, driving, everything just seems to be 10x more difficult when it snows. Lets not even begin to talk about the frost-bites.
 I find that on days when its not windy, i can cope without being completely covered on the bottom half, so i try to maximize those days (such as today) by wearing skirts. I chose to pair this body con skirt which i got for $6 from f21 (such a bargain) with this turtle neck top i got from h&m for $7 (can you tell i'm a sucker for bargains? lol). I love how the coat complements the outfit by bringing in different textures & patterns, with leather details on the sleeves and the leopard print.

The Trench

I enjoy wearing basics and sprucing the outfit up with some accessories. This outfit is a perfect example, underneath the coat i am wearing a black sweater and a pair of jeans which is a very basic outfit paired on its own. However, i decided to throw on this trench coat added a pair of heels, and this red bag (which i absolutely adore), and voila! I'll definitely be pairing this coat with other different looks, and i cannot wait to share them with you guys! I have a new video here. Enjoy!

Did you guys notice the photo quality upgrade ? What do you think ?

Beaded Disco

I appologise for the low quality of these pictures as i forgot my camera at home, so i had to use my iphone instead. But rest assured my next post would be in better quality as i am upgrading to a new lens for my DSLR which i am highly excited about! I love high quality pictures, so i am excited to be able to provide that for my readers.

I went for my friends birthday dinner over the weekend, and i decided to wear something really comfortable as i like to stuff my face when it comes to food lol so i went for this pastel blue beaded top and disco pants. It was definately a fun evening!

Orangey

I'm definitely loving statement pants this fall, and this white and black tailored pant i got a few months ago is no exception! It just adds something extra to the outfit without over doing it. I'll definitely be rocking it a lot more in the next couple of months. New video coming up on my channel!

Michelle dress

As i walked out of my room, my sisters saw me, they giggled and said "you look like Michelle Obama in that outfit". I disagreed at first, but after giving it some thought i concluded they were right lol so i decided to embrace the "Michelle" look, after all, she is the first lady of America and its an honour to be compared to her!
Other than channelling some Michelle in this look, I also gathered inspiration from fall, as green and burgundy are classic fall colors! (I hope to upload a fall lookbook on youtube very soon)

Get Ready With Me Video | P-Square Concert

If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of Nigerian artists including P-square. I attended the P-square concert in Toronto, and i was overcome with nostalgia for my days in Nigeria. It was really fun apart from the fact that the concert was apparently beginning at 7pm but they didn't come on stage till about 1am (I think that is way beyond "African time"). There was also no air conditioning whatsoever at the venue (not even a fan) which was disappointing because people were obviously going to be dancing/jumping, but otherwise the concert was amazing!

I uploaded a get ready with me video on my youtube channel for this look, check it out <3

Burgundy mode

I am definitely over summer, and greatly anticipating fall, it just keeps getting hotter and hotter! This look was inspired by my longing for fall as burgundy isn't exactly a "summer colour". This topshop pencil skirt has to be one of my most worn pencil skirts, i love the fit, length, and colour, see here. I decided to tie the monochrome look together using neutral coloured accessories.

I featured my lovely sister who takes all of my photographs and videos
Oh, have you guys seen my latest video?

A-Line

There is an array of dress types to suit various body types. I've come to realize (after many years of experimenting) lol that A-line dresses are definitely the most flattering on my body type. I felt so pretty in this dress! I laavv it! :D

I wanted to do something different with my hair, i tried a side bang, and i actually really like it. New go-to hair style, maybe ? 

Oh and i'm uploading a new video on my youtube channel soon.

Grey leopard

This skirt is probably one of the oldest items in my closet, i got it from primark in England about 6 years ago. It makes me wish we had primark in Canada. I love how its a leopard print but its toned down because its grey and black, i paired it with a teal coloured blouse and a statement necklace, i added these white strappy heels to complete the look. I have been inspired by this skirt so it'll definitely be featured in an upcoming lookbook on my youtube channel!

I also featured my little sisters in this post cause i thought they looked lovely!

Mickey

We all have those pieces of clothing which are 3 sizes bigger and we buy them just because they are on sale, but they just end up turning into cluster! Well, i love sale items and i always fall victim. But ever since i got my sewing machine, i have been able to alter pieces to fit me exactly how i want! I finally wrote my last paper yesterday and i feel so relieved! Above all i am happy to return to sewing!

This mickey top was a regular short sleeved shirt, and i cut it up into croptop with low arms and i wear it a lot more this way (i guess i can call it a D.I.Y). I paired it with high waisted pants because i don't like to show too much skin on top and bottom at the same time.
I hope everyone is having a blessed week!

OOTD | Cut It Out

I paired my these gorge floral wedges (one of my recent buys) with a magenta top which features shoulder cut outs. I wanted to add some edge to the outfit as i felt it was a bit too feminine so i added my gold chain necklace and my round sunglasses to the mix, and voila!

This top bun has been my go to hairstyle lately, as i've really been enjoying wearing my natural hair. Its nice to take a break from the weaves once in a while. Although i do love me some luscious weave! :D

New Things!

I have wanted a new black bag that i can wear everyday. I spotted this one in zara and i instantly fell in love, and my friend decided to gift it to me, can you imagine how happy i was? I love how sturdy it is, and it was on sale for $29.99! (you guys should definitely check out the zara sale, they have a lot of nice finds)

I have wanted a clutch that looked like this for a while, but they always had a ridiculous price tag. I found this one on f21 and i thought it was a decent price, so i couldn't pass up on it :D

I saw these shoes weeks ago at h&m and they were $29.95. I thought "i don't think i wanna pay that price" so i went back this week, and they came down to $7, and i thought definitely! (Only thing is they don't have straps, but thats not a problem.)

I also recently uploaded a haul video.

Collaboration ~ Holographic Trend


I decided to collaborate with some fellow bloggers, we each chose a current trend to base our posts on, i chose the holographic trend seeing as i love this trend. I wore this outfit to church, it was a bit bold, and i got a lot of weird looks, but who cuuurs right? lol, it definitely inspired me to explore outside my comfort zone, i think i'll be experimenting more with bold outfits, I loved it! :D

Bloggers Meet Up


Last weekend i attended a bloggers meet up, the theme was 'hats', it was organized by the lovely Brenda. We went for lunch at 'Oivier and Bonacini' restaurant in Toronto, and we went to the park afterwards to take some pictures and soak in the breeze, it was a lot of fun. I wore an a-line dress, i love how airy it is, the open back gives a little 'sexiness' to a feminine outfit, and it has pockets which are a plus for me, perfect dress for the weather. I met with these gorgeous ladies:
 Victoria (beautywithvee)
Jackline (sincerelymissj)

OOTD ~ Black & White

 I am so happy for my brother, it was his birthday yesterday (i was more excited than he was lol). I really appreciate birthdays, because it means you have been granted the gift of being able to see another year, and i think thats something to be excited about! He was reluctant to do anything for his day, but i insisted, we ended up going for dinner which was fun, and i'm just glad he enjoyed his day.
I am thankful for your life and i pray God continues to bless you, and grant all your heart desires! - Probably wouldn't see that because he doesn't read my blog lol.

OOTD ~ 48

The good thing about being flat chested is you don't have to worry about being too provocative when wearing see through clothing especially in the heat, who really wants to wear layers in the heat? #teamittybittytitty4life lol. This skirt i have had for yearsss! See here! I love the leather patchwork, it gives an edgy vibe to a girly mini skirt! 

I never really feel like wearing makeup in the summer because the heat is REAL! And i feel like it'll melt off. Which is one of the reasons I love summer, because you can throw on some lipstick, put on your sunglasses, and you are ready to go! Without anyone noticing that you are barefaced. 
I usually go for bold lips because I need something to liven up my face when I hv no makeup days, but today I felt like a lip stain would do!

OOTD ~ Ocean Dress

If you know me, you know my undying love affair with h&m, no matter how hard I try to deny it, I always end up returning to it. I have decided I'm going to stop trying to deny it and accept that we are meant to be. Lol, but really I'm addicted to that store! It's unreal!
This dress reminds me of the ocean, and I love how light-weight it is. Perfect for the summer time! I can already tell I'm gonna be wearing it alot this summer and, it was $15 (I'm sure most people can relate to why I love h&m). Can I hear ya say BARGAIN!!

OOTD ~ Pleats

Church outfit of the day! Wore a gorgeous pleated chiffon dress from Zara. (originally belonged to my mum, but I obtained it from her! hehe :$) The pattern on the bottom of this dress just so beautiful. I love that it's not some overzealous design, but still makes a statement! I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but the dress is pleated from top to bottom. I think the pleats add that extra touch of elegance! Lovee itt!

I didn't want to distract any attention from the dress, so I paired it with very minimal accessories, a skinny belt, a bracelet, and a purse. 

I also didn't have much time to do my makeup so I just put on some winged eyeliner, lashes, and a red lip and called it a day.

OOTD ~ Neon Pink

Went for the basket mouth show today with my mum, it was fun except for the fact that it started about 4 hours late which was a bit annoying and, I was called on stage (I am an extremely shy person lol) so that was a fail on my part, but other than that it was a good show!
I wore a neon pink dress, as you guys might already know my love for neon is still going strong lol.. I got the dress in a size medium (that was the only size left) so it was slightly oversized but i accessorized with this gorgeous belt (which i recently found in my mums closet) to cinch in the waist and my go jane nude/black strappy sandals.

Oh and i added pictures of my mum cause i thought she looked stunning :D Enjoy!

OOTD ~ Purple & Leopard print!

Went for an event last week and I paired this purple dress with leopard print heels, I think the gold detailing on the shoes give this outfit that extra something ( if you know what I mean ) lol. I love that this dress looks like nothing from the front but the back has a really low cut so you get to show some skin without it being too much -one of the reasons I had to have this dress! Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the back of the dress :( but I'm pretty sure I'll wear this dress again sometime in the future, so hopefully I'll get some pictures for you guys then!
Oh and my legs look darker in the pictures cause there was a really huge studio light in front of my face!

OOTD ~ Striped

So i went to see my friend today decided to wear something casual/ light/ covered up just enough to avoid me feeling too cold cause the weather was warm but windy. I opted for a sheer long sleeved shirt and some tights. The main reason I love sheer shirts so much is cause they are light weight/cover up just the right amount of skin = perfection!
