Friday Fashion on Fleek! : TCB X Trend.Ed

So the other day, a new clothing store called Trend.Ed (Trend Education) contacted me for a collaborative post and I thought why not!

I love clothes and I've been looking for something exciting for TCB (The Chameleon Blogger, just in case you didn't pick that up yet, I quite like the abbreviation, what so you think? Let me know in the comments below!)

I'd seen Trend.Ed on Instagram a few times (@trendedshop), so when they reached out to me it was a familiar name and I was excited to try something new.


The plan was to go for brunch, get to know more about the company, it's ethos and for the company to get to know a little more about me too. Then it was off to their shop in Tejuosho Shopping Complex with a N10,000 shopping voucher. They also have an online store at www.trend-ed.com

Initially, I thought I wouldn't find anything in my size (pear shaped girl) so I asked a few question about sizing because I know a few of my curvy ladies would want to know this. They assured me the sizes went up to a UK18 and they also offer an in-store adjustment service if needed.

And with this assurance, I WAS READY!

Mondays & Me: The Balancing Act

Hi guys!
Hope you didn't miss me too much. 
I've been quite busy as usual and to be very honest, it's getting quite hard to juggle everything. 
If any of you have any tips for balancing time, responsibilities and still finding the time to rest... Hola at your girl in the comments section!

Recently, it's been a roller coaster. How I feel is, I love my new job and what I'm doing but there are so many other external factors that play a part in the quality of work I put out while doing what I love. Office drama with a colleague, people getting fired and I'm afraid of losing my own job, having to take on more responsibilities with the ones I was already struggling with and striving to exceed expectations and have a healthy relationship with everyone else around me.

My mum always says this "know yourself no be curse", which simply means it's a blessing to know yourself and I totally agree. People go through life trying to 'find themselves' and are unable to make life decisions because they don't know themselves well enough to know what they want. But when you know yourself and truly understand yourself by yourself and not as a couple in a relationship or in life as a child sibling or parent, it's truly a blessing.

And I know myself. I know that I'm emotional, I can be shy and a little self-conscious sometimes but most of all... I'm a bit of an extremist. When I'm faced with something, I give it my all till I'm fully satisfied with what I've done. In some cases, it could be good and other times not so good. Being like this helps me do a good job to the best of my ability and I can be thorough with one thing but then other things might have to suffer because of that one good job. I hope this makes sense. If you can relate, how do you cope?

So that's two things I need feedback on. How do you cope with balancing responsibilities and finding time to rest and how do you deal with being an extremist (if you're one).

This post is dedicated to a recent commenter who left the comment below;

Initially (being the emotional person I am), I felt bad cuz I already know I'm doing a bad job here and putting my all into BN. But I'm sorry guys, I'll do better. Thanks for always checking back as well!

Favourites Friday: Lipstick Colours #LipstickDay Special!

Hey guys!
It's #LipstickDay today!
I'm doing something a little different today, I'm sharing my favourite lipstick colours with you.
I got my makeup professionally done once and I didn't it like what this particular makeup artist did so later on I thought why waste it?
I made some adjustments to the makeup to the best of my ability and I did a shoot with some of my favourite lipsticks, let me know what you think.
These aren't all my lip colours but these are the ones I reach for most times.

Mondays & Me: More Updates

Hey guys,

So this last week if you were on BellaNaija, you'll see two big things happened for me.
First I went to South Africa for the first time with some really cool people: Tiwa Savage and her son JamJam (Jamil), Juliet Ibrahim, AY Makun, Praiz, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Do2Dtun of CoolFM, Tewa Onasanya of Exquisite Magazine, Sisi Yemmie, Tosin Ajibade of Olorisupergal, Ebenezer from Ghana Gist and Yvonne Nelson.


I liked Tiwa Savage before but after spending some time with her, I more than like her! Lol 
It's funny that before I even knew I was travelling to South Africa with Tiwa Savage, I had her song 'If I Start To Talk' on repeat for weeks, you can only imagine my excitement when I eventually heard she'd be travelling with us.

Mondays & Me: The Intro

A lot has happened so let’s catch up.

I started work at BellaNaija in March and it’s been great so far. Though challenging, I feel like I need that challenge to constantly keep me on my toes, my brain working and mind thinking. We all need challenges to grow, to test your strengths and improve yourself and honestly I feel like I’ve grown a lot since I’ve started this new job.

The experiences have been great, meeting new people and going to new places. I can be quite the introvert but at the same time I like to experience new things and get out of my comfort zone once in a while, then go back in when no one’s looking lol. I’ll share more of these experiences later on in other posts.
