New Look: Topknot


Hello loves! How has been your week? I look different yeah? Topknot is one of my favorite goto hairstyles, it is very quick and easy to pull off such a style. And I like it so much cause it gives me "this look" (which I just can't explain)... Although, I don't keep this hairstyle for long... Say, 3 to 4 days. I still can't to without a long, dropped hairstyle anyways.
I hope you don't get tired of seeing this my very favorite beige blazer? This is one of my favorite blazers and I like it so much cause its nude and very versatile. That is, it suits anything and everything in my closet. It is just perfect for my kind of style!




About this look, I found this patterned pants in my closet (I got the pants last year). And I just thought it would be great combining it with my favorite beige blazer. So, I decided to wear a white tank top underneath the blazer and accessorized the outfit with some jewelleries, different shades of brown bag and shoes. Do you like the look?




Well, since this is my first post this week, (though, this is already the end of the week) I will also like to talk about my last weekend inspiration. If you followed me on facebook, you must have seen what it was about. I am totally into metallic this period. I so much love the touch of gloss and sheen on one's look. And I think I'd be adding a touch of metallic on my next OOTD. But for now, you can check out and share your thoughts and views about my inspiration on my facebook page.



So, watch out for an OOTD on something metallic. Hoping to post it next week...

Cheers to the great weekend!
Stay easy

What's in your Bag?

Hello lovely ones! Today's post is about "what is in my bag". I've always seen bloggers share a post on what they carry around inside their bags, and i thought... "why don't i just show my readers what i have inside my bag?"
Though, no one actually asked me to do this, i'll sure list a number of bloggers whom i would love to see what's in their bag *smiles*

THE RULES
1. Take a picture of your bag.
2. Take a picture of its contents.
3. Explain!
4. Tag as many bloggers as you want, that you'd like to see the contents of their bags.
Don't forget to mention the person that tagged you...


Here is a picture of my bag and it's contents...

CONTENTS:

1. Wallet: This is a must item in my bag. It contains my ID cards, debit cards, passport, money, etc. So i just have to make sure its always in my bag.
2. Diary and Pen: I also carry these around cause i get inspiration anywhere and i might just need to start writing.
3. Pressed powder: Hot city, so i might just need to powder up my face.
4. Sunnies: My sunglasses are always in my bag. Whenever the sun gets to much, i just shade up!
5. Red lipstick: Well' since i'm always wearing a red lip. why don't i carry it everywhere?
6. Lipgloss: Who doesn't like a glossy lip from time to time? And i hate chap lips anyway.
7. Phones and handy charger: Can't do without my phones, and my phones can't do without their chargers. So, i carry this rechargeable battery charger along with me.
8. USB cord: I might just need to sync at any moment. Or even transfer something important to my phone, from a pc and vice versa.
9. Dry face wipes: Hot and sunny day? Would sure need to wipe sweat and make up.

ANKARA SHAKARA












A beautiful Saturday to you! Trust you had a great week!

Style tip:
Ankara Shakara...

Its all over the place- Ankara accessories. From bangles to necklaces to brooches, to shoes to slippers to bags to hair pieces to rings to glasses to belts.. Just name it! Even to ties and cuff links for guys: And yeah, I love it! Bright, beautiful Ankara and proudly Nigerian.

Here's a few tips on how to rock your Ankara accessories.

Be sure not to wear more than three ankara accessories all at once.. ie don't wear Ankara shoes, bags, earring, bangles and neck piece all in one out fit.. Less is always more..

You can spice up your casual tee shirt and jeans with a statement Ankara piece such as a big brooch or neck piece..

With ankara accessories you don't have to bother about matching colors, but be sure the pieces you choose complement your entire out fit.

Saturday/Sunday is a great day to rock your Ankara accessories and do your Ankara shakara.

Stay beautified!

Olympics: London 2012


Hello everyone! Happy August! I still can’t get over how fast the month of July went by.
Today’s post is (what I recently thought I should create) in honour of the 2012 Olympic Games which started on the 27th of July and will end on the 12th of August. Though I’m not live there, but I’m watching the game from Nigeria. The opening ceremony was marvelous! Kept wishing I was live there. But I’m sure adding “going to the Olympics” on my bucket list.
So in today’s look, I’m wearing the five colours of the Olympic rings: blue, yellow, black, green and red. The five-ringed symbol represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games. The colours of the rings represent the flags of the countries hat participate in the Olympics. In that, every flag of a country participating in the Olympics includes one of these colours.






The Olympic motto: FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER!
So, I hope you like how I combined the Olympic colours in my look?
Have a colourful Olympic season!
Don’t forget to read my previous post and see how I styled an “all black” look.


Stay easy
