Throwback Thursday: Lady in Red for Carolina Herrera


A few weeks ago I attended an event for BellaNaija; the Carolina Herrera, Herrera Confidential fragrance launch in Nigeria for the first time in Africa. See photos from the event here.
It was very exciting for the brand to choose Nigeria to be the first country in Africa to launch the luxe fragrance and I must say, I'm in love with it!
I wore a red dress, for some reason once I though Carolina Herrera, all I could think was red.

TCB X Trend.Ed: Ombre Florals

Hey guys, here's the second outfit I got from Trend.Ed. I really really like this top because of the floral ombre effect of the print on the top. I'm not a pink person but I love this top.
Let me know what you think in the comments!
Also, don't forget you can see my original post on Trend.Ed here.

TCB X Trend.Ed: The Bird Print

So here's the first top I got from the Trend.Ed shop. It's a green top with black birds on it, it comes in other prints but I preferred this one because of the bright colour and the style of the top reminds me of an actual bird.
Let me know what you think in the comments!

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.

1 Skirt 5 Ways


Over the past week I've been sharing the different ways I styled my black tulle skirt and these are the 5 ways I came up with (for now, lol).

My favourites are these two looks, I couldn't pick one


And here's why!
They both have prints; ankara & leopard print
The first look has a mix of prints with the red version as my headscarf and the yellow as my crop top.
I love an all black look with a little twist. The different textures and print shoes in the second look make it a top pick for me, I'd wear this anywhere. Ok maybe not the beach lol

So which looks are your favourite & why?

Also as a little update, I just recently started contributing at BellaNaija.com as part of their style team. It's been going well so far, feel free to visit BellaNaija Style for some of my style posts.
The content I put out on there is totally different from what I have here but I'll keep updating here as usual as The Chameleon Blogger. 😘

Tulle Leopard in a Little Gold

So today's post show the last two ways I wear my tulle skirt, sorry it took so long to post.
I wanted to play with textures for this look so I added a black leather belt and switched the gold buckle to the back so the front is all black, different textures and just one gold necklace. The gold cuff is there for the gold necklace, shoes are there for some added print and red lips for some colour :)

Floral, Tulle and A String

 So this time instead of colour, I added a print to my monochrome with these floral sandals I got from Aldo with pink lips to match lol.
I love the string & stud detail on this shirt, from Zara. 
The multi colour reflecting studs inspired my colourful floral print shoes & pink lips actually.

A Little White & A Little Blue

 Seems like I'm still in my black & white phase from 2015 
This is the first of my tulle skirt outfits and its very simple so I thought I'd add colour with a red lip and these blue sandals I got from Aldo. Find similar blue sandals here or try this black here, I think it's the perfect black sandal to own and wear with everything!

My Picks: Tulle Skirt

Don't you just love clothes and the power it gives you to be just about anyone you want to be?
It's like life's a book and every day you get to be different characters through your clothes without having to change your personality as often (cuz that's just psycho).
I wouldn't say my style is 100% girly but I do wear A LOT of skirts & dresses because I like to stick to what works for me and what makes me feel the most comfortable. 
You know that one person who has one skirt in like 5 different prints and/or colours? Ya, that's me.
It's like I have a uniform but it's not as boring as Mark Zuckerberg's closet, though I thought of trying that out once.
My all time fave girl, Carrie Bradshaw in tulle skirts.
My style pick for today is the tulle skirt. It's mostly seen on ballerinas but fashion is influenced by everything. Today you can be in the military, tomorrow a ballerina or even a bird! the possibilities are endless.

My Purple Dashiki from Kufre Sodique

 I got this dashiki from a new brand called Kufre Sodique (@kufresodique on instagram). It's a menswear brand but they've just introduced these cute dashikis for ladies as well!
I've always liked dashikis. I like the ease and the comfort of something so simple to wear casually at home but this one from Kufre Sodique is perfect for an outing. 
It's made with high quality wool fabric and features stylish details like the embroidered neckline and a corduroy pocket, all in my favourite colour purple!
I wore mine for a house party with a pair of jeans and my favourite green & purple ankara turban for a pop of colour & print (you know me).
Then for jewelry I added some old wooden hoops I've had for ages to go with the whole African theme of the outfit.
Let me know what you think!

Orente

This is just what I might wear for Valentine's Day... With just enough red details for me especially the red lipstick which I think (for me) is essential for Valentine's Day.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone. 
Doesn't matter if you're in a relationship or not, spread love to everyone around you but most of all love God with all your heart and love yourself. 
Celebrate love all year round and not just today.
I titled this post after one of my favourite Nigerian love songs, Orente by Adekunle Gold.
I think this outfit could've easily been part of the video, what do you think?
