One Colour Girl

Trying to be a "one colour girl" like my Toyin of The Soho Sister blog, do check her out, I'm in love with her blog and I love her style especially her all white outfits cuz I can never seem to pull off that look but she does it so well. She's quite the monochromist herself, check out this blue outfit she wore here, it was this post that made me look for a similar outfit and here we are! I wore this to work and everyone loved it thinking it was a dress lol, thanks for the inspiration Toyin!
The top is from Zara (loving the low back), Asos skirt, belt's from And Other stories and my sandals are from New Look.

Switch Over to the Victory Channel

"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things.”
(Philippians 4:8, NKJV)

Well hello there Friday! I almost didn't see you!!
Been so busy this week, but I thank God because some people are looking for work and things to do so I cannot even try to complain. 
As you all know I'm currently working at Xclamations as an in-house designer and we just recently showed our new collection at GTBank LFDW on Wednesday the 23rd. If you missed it I have all the pictures from our collection but I'm sure Bella Naija and the official LFDW site have pictures from other designers as well. I've also been for the different days so I'll update the blog with pictures from those but I've interrupted my scheduled posts for the blog to update you guys on my over all experience on the day of the show!

Runway Collection

As promised, here's the runway collection for Xclamations at GTBank LFDW, Enjoy!

Saturday Wedding

Wore this for my cousins wedding a few weeks ago and it's from Xclamations. Love the colour block lace detail on the dress, it's  really simple so that really is the glam factor of  the dress.
 I decided to go with these purple heels to pick on the purple lace on the dress, all in the spirit of colour blocking.

The Importance of Praise & Worship - Peace Oseyenum

It is essential to develop a heart of praise and thanksgiving. If you neglect praise than you are robbing God of the gratitude he should receive, ultimately even if we praised him for all eternity it still wouldn't be enough therefore for us to not praise him at all is wrong! It is also vital to praise God because of who he is; he is faithful, merciful and loving and therefore deserves our all in all, when we do not habitually praise we habitually complain, moan and grow into depression when we don't get what we want when we want, as if it's all about us. So I encourage you to develop an intimate relationship with God whereby you seek his face and not just his hand, that you seek know him for yourself and not just for ministering purposes, that you actually grow to love him and be transformed in his very presence. 
Imagine you spent 5 hours just worshipping and praising God, no interruptions, no distractions what do you think will happen? Now you don't have to spend 5 hours with God but we all know that we can spend 5 hours with our friends some of us even speak on the phone for 5 hours some of us scroll on Instagram for more! So what more with our maker? Let us "#PushForIntimacy" and with that develop a heart of gratitude that isn't circumstances based or based on material things that will perish on this earth anyway. 
Praising and thanking God for who he is and not what we can get is true praise. I mean we simply cannot praise God only on what we have as we will never be stable, the bible doesn't promise us a journey with no issues rather it encourages us to have faith, to live by faith and not by faith, to not lean on our own understanding but to trust him, it teaches us to remain steadfast in times of troubles, trials, tribulations and suffering. So can you see that praising God when only things go our way is inconsistent? Also understand that we are not God and therefore do not know the beginning middle and end, so it would be wiser to trust God and praise him in all things seeing that the bible promises us that God will never leave nor fore-sake us and that he makes all things work out for those that love him and are called to his purpose. Therefore it would be unwise to complain, moan, be ungrateful and depressed as we can't see the end product. 
Remember God is kind and loving, so even though something painful takes place learn to trust that God is in control and that it has a purpose. When Joseph (the dreamer) received a vision in his teenage years it didn't come to pass until much later in his life, and the journey he had was extremely painful and strenuous, infact based on his process that vision/dream didn't seem like it was ever going to happen. But atlas when everything fell into place, (the good and the bad) Joseph was able to say that "The Lord had made him fruitful in the land of his afflictions". So calm down, stop crying, stop the self-pity and rebuke the enemies lies. being anxious profits nobody! Therefore make your requests known unto God with thanksgiving and the let the peace of God bring rest. Start your praise journey today!

Workflow: The Denim Skirt

So on two different work days I wore this denim skirt I got from Zara, I love it. I've already thought of all the different ways I can style it. Denim is a basic neutral so anything goes to be honest, even denim on denim... Not Britney and Justin kinda denim, let's be tasteful about it.
Outfit 1: Primark pinstriped denim blazer, Topshop crop top, Zara denim skirt & bag and Next sandals
Outfit 2: Zara top, skirt & shoes LOL!
Let me just say I am absolutely in love with these blue shoes, obsessed! When I bought it I wanted to wear it with everything, I didn't even care if it looked nice or not, I just wanted everyone to see my Blue Shoes! I'd say it's one of my best impulse purchases this year, I got it last minute at the airport on my way to Lagos.

Throwback Thursday with Sheila

I few Sundays ago I met Sheila (@mizz_sheilao on instagram) at my cousin's church and she visits my blog, thanks again Sheila! She's also got a blog so make sure you check it out, it's called Sheila's Musings, just click the link.
I absolutely love her outfit especially her necklace & red shoes... Those red shoes! Reminds me of Judy Garland's shoes in Alice in Wonderland. Somewhere over the rainbow in a perfect world, those red shoes would be MINE! Lol I had to.

Leather Collar

I don't wear a lot of leather except its a jacket, accessories or little details in the outfit like this top from Zara with a leather collar. I've never been a believer of leather pants, somehow I don't think it'd be very flattering for me but maybe it's all in my mind. If I ever overcome this thought and try it on, I'll let you know if there's any change of heart.
I've had these twists in now for about three weeks, they look really rough I know but I'll take them out soon. I've got a wedding coming up soon and I don't want to look like scraps. Even though my outfit is nice, rough hair can turn things sour, very sour. Not forgetting the unheard insults you will receive, "they will carry rough hair and say it is natural hair", or someone will ask why I did not "make" or "comb" my hair Lol. Speaking of hair and insults, this post on my cousin's blog is one you should definitely read especially if you are natural, "someone" gave her some unnecessary "feedback" about her appearance. Read about it here.

2013 Jewelry Collection for Anita Quansah London

Simply Amazing works of Art... I'm in Love!
The colours, the details, everything about these pieces are absolutely stunning.
I have a thing for jewelry and the usual African looking ones from Zara and the rest, but this just takes it to a whole new level. I don't know why I'm just hearing about this brand!
I'm assuming the pricing will be as extravagant and lavish as the pieces so for now, I'll just drool over here by my laptop, no harm done.
But if I ever owned one of these show stopper pieces, they'd always be the star of my outfit. 
They'd even makes dressing up a little easier! 
You don't have to do too much, the jewelry carries the whole outfit. :)
 Lace? Ankara? Feathers? I'm a believer, I love them all!

Back in Lagos

"Are you Kitten me right Meow", I'm on an Okada! As a cool kid you know B-)

Are you Kitten me right Meow?

Forever 21 top, River Island pants, Zara sunglasses (I LOVE)
Lots more after the cut :)
