There's just something about Animal Print & the colour Red.
Animal print is GRRRRR
And the color RED, is pure fire, 
so it a wonderful marriage for both......
B'cos it's full of fire. 
I've always like dressing up when I travel, it was the way I was brought up and I just feel that although comfortable, there are other options out there than a pair of jeans.
Throw a bright red sweater over this dress and u are good to go.
Again a belt will always do the trick. I also seem to stand up straighter when I'm wearing a belt. 
Open toe sandals a SUPER for traveling, b'cos your feet swell from the looooong hours of traveling and so closed-toe shoes can be a pain, literally. She laughs, but it really isn't funny as I'm speaking from experience.
You can always kick off your heels once you're seated, put your hair up and nestle in to read all your magazines.
But when u arrive @ your final destination,....... 
You're the BEST looking CHICK for miles & whoever is coming to pick u up, will be beaming with pride.  
The Look!
Dress - Primark
Watch - Gucci
Necklace - Vintage
Earrings - Accessorize
Red Top - Whistles
Bag - Prada
Luggage - Louis Vuitton
Shoes - Zara
Accessories always make an outfit and it brings it together with the finger print of your own style. That's what accessories do, they show off your individual style. 

Pony tail situation!
Was a FAKE ponytail and I loved it.
 It matched me hair color to a T .
As I was walking I could hear my hair go swish, swish. 
(Very Diana Ross & Donna Summer)
Well if I cannot be a Songstress, at least let me have the hair
I cannot tell u how many people stopped to give me compliments on it. So easy, so fab and a really clean look. 

Victoria Station
As u can see above, we shot this at one of the most popular  stations in London.
I love this place, the hustle and bustle, people coming and going.
Looooooove it!
It's Autumn/fall now and there's no better time than to wear all of your rich dark and jewel tone lipsticks.
I loved dark lips and since the outfit is so bright and inviting like a Christmas present, u can let the ribbons be dark, in this case almost black, juicy, creamy lips. 
The lipstick is from Fashion Fair cosmetics.
I never like rules and the one rule that I completely ignore is that 
"you cannot wear dark lips with dark eyes" 
Oh yes u can, I say!
The red bag is by Prada and it's so nice and roomy. 
I can and have put in all my drinks, snacks make-up and travel essentials in there. Had I known, I would love/use it so much, I would have bought another one in a different colour. 
You can NEVER go wrong with hand luggage, there R so many trips I take where I just carry all my valuables &/or  just don't feel like checking in my luggage.
 I can leave the station/airport in no time at all, & more importantly, my luggage is not lost or stolen. 
Again I used my LV roll-on but u can use/buy any travel luggage u like. 
There are so many good brands out there!
I miss my father-in-law dearly and hope to go and see him soon in Norway. 
Wish me a safe trip! :-)
I hope u all enjoyed reading and looking at this 3-part picture story, as much as I enjoyed creating it.
It was such good fun & there will be many more to come.

Love, light & fashion to u all.

As the Christmas holidays are coming up, I want to wish u all a safe trip, and pls travel in style.!

WEAR 1 DRESS 3 DIFFERENT WAYS!.....Part 2 :-)...........WITH GUCCI.

 You CAN mix Prints & Polks Dots!

I really loved this look, b'cos it was very out of the box and I know many of u would have thought,
 "hmmmm don't think so"
 But just look how adorable this look is? 
This is look is dedicated to all my wonderful and smart friends that have professional career and and shuttle themselves to Wall Street & downtown every mooring.
Yes! U CAN look great, appropriate & stylish in the office. 

Hair in a bun!
It's will 4ever be a classic and easy hairstyle to do.
And when u have to dash into work, this hairstyle takes no time at all. Grab your bagel and your good to go.
I used a nude lipstick from Mac called Kinda Sexy and orange blusher from Sleek cosmetics. 

We shot these pictures outside and on the stairs of Belgrave house.
The look!
So I put a skirt over my dress and my dress ended up doubling as a form fitted slip that put those Visible-Panty-lines away, she laughs.
The outfit wasn't loud at all, 
and with a black Gucci belt, it all really came together.
Dolce and Gabbana have created many variations of this look and presented it at their runway shows season after season.
It's very on-trend and can be worn to and outside the office. 
I've always loooooooved the London Buses, I went to University here in London and I would always take the bus into town and sit upstairs so I could see EVERYTHING, 
I still do, till this very day:-)
Glasses - These are my prescription glasses, 
Glasses - Marc Jacobs
Yep, I'm as blind as a bat, she laughs.
Necklace - Robert Lee Morris
Bracelet - Robert Lee Morris
Belt - Gucci
Soft leather briefcase - Ted Baker
Polka Dot Skirt - Zara
Shoes - Jimmy Choo

Never forget darling fashionistas, that u can keep the animal in u tame from 9am to 5pm, but after that, you can let the inner u ROAR and just whip off the skirt for a HOT date with that dashing executive after hours. 
How exciting that sounds. 
A totaL 'DATE' dress. 

If I ever had a 9 to 5 job, I always see myself as working for a fashion magazine. What do u guys think?

The 3rd and final look, rushing to catch the train:

It all started with a simple dress from Primark:-)

This was such a fun shoot. 
I wanted to show how u can really maximize your wardrobe and also be creative at the same time.
As a stylist, I get asked all kinds of questions, but the most popular was how to be cost effective and at the same time still be on trend with what was being churned out on the high streets of 
Oxford Street:-)
So I bought a dress from Primak for £10 and wore it 3 different ways. I also added some designer pieces that can easily be replaced with high street items as well.

I adore this look and its so lady-like as well.
Yes, yes, yes and yes darlings! 
You absolutely can add prints to an already printed outfit.
The key is for all the prints 2 B in the same colour family and of the SAME print. 
The chiffon scarf added a soft touch to the already loud print and the belt just helped to cinch in the waist which gave it the lady-like touch. 
I took a little Chanel bag and bow-tie sandals to finish the look and Voila! 
Your're ready for tea & biscuits with friends.
My make-up was very simple since the outfit was such a 
POW-WOW look.
I used my Ruby-Woo lipstick by Mac and just did a simple top lid Cat-eye to elongate them.
I also added some bronze shadow in the tear-duct of my eyes to brighten them up and for that extra POP.
This little trick makes a huge difference and u look so AWAKE and glowing.
I used the same bronze pigment from Mac as well, & added a touch to my cheek bones for that honey glow!
I wore matte gold earrings and a black chain necklace to finish the look. 
These pictures were taken in 
The Tea Room at the Grosvenor Hotel 
The outfit!
Scarf - Bloomingdales
Earrings - Accessorize
Necklace - TopShop
Ring - Robert Lee Morris
Belt - Mango
Bag - Chanel
Shoes - Dune
Dress - Primark
This is a beautiful day-time look, but it can also go all the way to evening and even to a party on a Saturday night. The other accessory you need with this look is.........
The belt was an extra touch and like I said b4, 
it just cinches in the waist. 
My waist is pretty small in proportion to my hips, 
so I always like to wear a belt whenever I can.
I adore this little quilted Chanel.
It can go from day to evening just like that. 
It's also has a lot more room than it looks. 

The tea was very nice indeed and the tea room was just so lovely.
I want to take this time to thank The Grosvenor Hotel for allowing us to shoot there. 
I'm always watching my weight so I didn't have any biscuits. 
But I did have three cups of tea, she laughs. 

Up next, look 2

Happy 53rd Independence Day to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.


I'm half Nigerian and I'm half Gambian. 
The 1st of October is the Independence Day to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I was so looking forward to the day b'cos I wanted to celebrate it.
I celebrate fashion every day of my life and I thought it would be nice to celebrate my nations independence through fashion as well.
And so I proudly wore the national flag's colors! 

The eyes were fun  to do and I just went with the flow!
I used fashionfair, Mac, Sleek, Iman & L'Oreal cosmetics
The eyeshadow palettes were from Sleek and fashion fair.
The pigments are beyond fantastic and just really pop up on my eyes. I'm really looooooooving Sleek eyeshadows right now, plus it's a drug store purchase and so, very budget friendly for those of u that cannot buy mac all the time. 

The coat is a vintage Christian Dior that I bought in
 Copenhagen, Denmark.
Watch - Gucci
Bag is called Speedy by Louis Vuitton.
The shoes are Christian Louboutin 

And the STAR of the show.....
This sensational head piece was made especially for me by the amazing designer Sofia Afrenie from Romania. 

This head piece is one of my all time faves and I cherish it so much.
THANK YOU so very much Sofia Afrenie
Please follow the beautiful & talented Sofia on Instagram :-)

CL & LV 

Talk about an orange POUT 
& u have to look no further than Mac lipstick in Morange A53. 
It's an amazing POP of colour.  
The make up colors was a celebration of everything that I feel represents Nigeria.
Jolof Rice 
And Beauty. 
Green white Green
Never looked so good, don't u agree? 

Until next time darling fashionistas, 
Love & light to u all.




It's one of my all time favorite exercises to do.
I feel so free and ever part of my body gets a 
work out.
It's the only sport that can save your life and is one if the first sports that's recommended to be taught to children.

This was at the Hilton Watford Hotel. 
We had traveled outside London to attend a party and decided that after too many drinks, it would be wise to check in for the night.
I decided to make good use of the pool the following day before we left. :-)
Swimsuit - Adidas
I remember the good old days, when every Sunday after Church, my family would go to Ikoyi Club (Lagos, Nigeria) and have an absolute blast.
We would Swim 4 hours, eat Suya (Barbecued meat on a stick)
and watching movies in the garden. 
When I go swimming today, I always go back and think of those wonderful memories.
