For my makeup, I decided to create a whole purple look, to match/accentuate the lilac on the jumpsuit. In creating this eye look, I used the Makeup Revolution X Patricia Bright -Rich in Color Eyeshadow palette . Sharing this look on my Instagram Page under Lookbooks, got quite a number of likes.

For my hair, I packed my silk pressed hair to the back, and added a draw string to create a ponytail. I wanted a slight change, which still gives me that natural look I always love.

In this present time, I choose to find peace and joy in all that is happening around the world. I may not be affected directly, but my prayers, love and light is constantly sent to the world.

Monotone Look/Bargain Shopping

Hello beautiful people, welcome back! I hope you all are staying safe and sanitary out there. Thanks for stopping by but first if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the menu button above and let’s stay connected!!

5148E4E8-7731-4E33-BFCB-1E5B2A22EE51

This week I shared a couple of simple monotone looks on my Instagram  stories, where I paired outfits of the same color or different shades from the same color. It’s one of the easiest ways to maximize the clothing items in your closet.

Monotone looks are generally refreshing to style as they balance and even out your entire look. It is sophisticated in its look and style, effortless in creating as you don’t worry much on styling options.

This  Bcbgmaxazria  peplum faux leather pants were a bargain. Original price $248 and I got them for $9!!! it’s mind blowing but I am glad it’s been been added to my closet. It is such a statement piece, very catchy in color and texture.

Paired it with a simple  Calvin Klein Sleeveless V-neck Blouse  which can work perfect for this look and a 9-5 look. Styled with my suede Aldo Stiletto Heels and crossbody bag from Burlington.

FB32B8D9-3E5E-45A6-B428-6C5E79068CF4

These peplum pants are very stylish and particular to certain occasion, such as parties, or night out because its design, texture and color will be off  to wear in a corporate environment (IMO). It will be perceived as too excessive.

However, if you throw on a black long line blazer, to tone down the wet look of the pants, they will work perfect in a corporate environment.

These heels although steep, they are very gorgeous, chic and stylish. They go perfectly with any outfit I have on.

Glad spring/summer is upon us, so I have decided to pump up my colours and style fun pieces. I had previously styled this satin crop top last year for my 30th birthday, and here it is styled differently.

My 30th Birthday dinner.

I gave it a more glammed up, event-like look and this time around, I toned things down and styled with a white denim and mules for a more fun, relaxed, brunch, catching up with friends look.

These jeans have to be one of my most comfortable crisp jeans! Found them at Name Brand Clothing and obsessed with it.

Love the cut out design on these SHOE DAZZLE mules. Although steep, they are beautiful and chic! You can shop for a similar one Here

*affiliate links* I love these mules Sam Edelman  Missguided Z Code from ASOS

I focused on achieving a one colour palette for my upper look and one colour for my lower look, hence mustard yellow up and all white below.

In love with this box bag from Zoet World  it is incredibly made and great texture and design.

Statement Sleeves!

Hello beautiful people, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. To subscribe to my blog, kindly hit the menu button above and let’s stay connected.

In celebration of Black History Month, I decided to go back to my roots in Style.

African prints are the most stylish, elegant and vibrant fabrics I have ever seen! I’m fortunate enough to be Nigerian and I get to explore and create impeccable looks using African fabrics.

Not only are they unique in their textures, patterns and colours, they are of high quality. Their versatility cannot be overemphasised because they can be used to make simple to classy to elegant wears.

The focal point are the sleeves, they are dramatic and stylish. They add that flair to the whole outfit, making a simple little dress stand out.

These African fabrics can be mixed with various fabrics to create looks. The sleeves are made of organza mixed with the traditional fabric. They make the whole look stand out.

These fabrics are not particular to Nigeria as other African countries have their own unique prints and designs. For the most part, generally they are classified under the large umbrella of “African Fabrics”

To shop these fabrics or ready to wear items like this, visit JobimClothing , you truly want to be adorned and be part of a country that is rich in culture, people, food and textile.

To shop this exact dress, visit Ruchne to place your order.

I will forever be proud to be Black and Nigerian! I hope you did enjoy this blog post, don’t forget to subscribe as you leave your comments and suggestions.

Threw on my comfy soft  Teddy Coat from Burlington, styled with my thrifted wrangler mom jeans and my pair of block heeled booties from Urbanog.

A cami is a  staple wardrobe piece that comes in handy as an easy styling tool. It can be worn on its own or styled as an under garment as shown in my pictures.

These jeans are one of the most comfortable jeans I own and I constantly reach for them without giving a thought to the others. It’s a good thrift find that I have incorporated into different looks.

In styling plain outfits, you can decide to go head-toe all plain or add a bit of pattern as seen in my picture. Whichever way you decide, is perfectly fine. Nowadays, it is common fashion for people to style different patterns in one look.

I chose to style this my mint green jacket from SHEIN  love the ruffled details on the wrist with pearl buttons. Decided to create a mild look with my zebra boots from Urbanog being the twist for the look.

Mom Life and Blogging Life.

Addressing the messages I get on how I manage my Mom life and Blogging. It has been a huge adjustment since having a baby as I work around his schedule but I push to make things work on my blog.

By working around his schedule, I use every spare minute to put a line down, or take some pictures for my content. Most times, I shoot some contents at midnight when I know he’s fast asleep. That’s the sacrifice and hard work I put into creating contents for my blog.

46E0B2BB-587A-4E45-89AB-A51CDFD40439

Most times, it takes me days to put a blog post together and ready for publishing. Eg for this particular post, I am currently put together my write up, my pictures haven’t been edited just yet, I will have to edit them later and add them to the desired space.

The aim is getting something out every week so I try to create contents every spare time and day to achieve my goal.

80DCECF3-05AA-4062-8502-210D50A306BB

It’s not the most comfortable or easy scenerio, but I am determined to keep my readers engaged and it’s an avenue for me to express myself on all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle.

215376CA-8FEB-4319-BC72-43BE0C09D889

I loved curating this look because was a perfect blend of highs and lows. The teddy coat and bag are from Burlington  and I love them so much, the coat is soft, comfy and keeps me warm. The sweater dress is from Nordstrom Rack and it’s really soft. The shoes are Aldo and belt is Thrifted.

80DCECF3-05AA-4062-8502-210D50A306BB

Another way I create contents is by shooting different looks in a day. That gives me the opportunity of having shot contents to work on later.

2123174B-54A7-4DAF-B2B6-87E323440BAD

Pairing these items together, created a very chic and sophisticated look in my opinion. It could pass for a business meeting look, brunch look and a party look.

It’s a subscription for Full sized Lipsticks, Lip stains, Lip pencils and Eyeshadow sticks. Being my first time to try out their collection, I was impressed.

This bag contained a total of four full  items that worked perfectly with it each other. I could use them separately or blend them to create a look.

CJ and I had planned on checking out this Skydance Bridge here in OKC and we got to finally do so in Fall. Such a beautiful but windy day, my hair kept flying and it was difficult to get a shot without having flyways.

516669F5-4C9E-4E20-A1BF-3477FE8E41B9

A very neat and beautiful park, lots of people taking strolls and enjoying the beautiful weather. I was 33 weeks pregnant, dragged my big bump and took a stroll round the park, absorbing its beauty and capturing some moments.

B029722D-DCC0-45B8-9AAB-AF0ADF2C32F6

Decided to style my maternity leggings with this Duster jacket by By the Way    a brand carried by REVOLVE . It was a perfect fit for the weather which wasn’t cold or damn hot. Styled with a little slim belt and threw on my flats from New Look (It takes me extra 5 mins to get myself situated to put on a pair of shoes)

6E352FB6-1392-4A24-83B7-1B73DC749D38

I could feel my baby growing by the inch during this shoot. That’s why it is always advisable to have a comfortable choice of clothing when pregnant, because you could be comfy one second and the next you are over every damn thing!!!!!!!!

Leggings are from Burlington— of which I have had an obsession with this store and they carry amazing clothing items of unique designers and style.

BD507D41-8311-46F6-BF11-B428CD3A24F7

Did I mention the slits on both sides of the Duster jacket, makes it more stylish, free and workable.

Wind was in the way but we sure knew how to make it Fashionable!!!!

Closet Adjustments.

Hello everyone, welcome back! I hope you all are doing great. Thanks for stopping by but if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below at the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected.

My closet needs didn’t change much as I mostly sized up. I avoided the maternity section in stores until there was an absolute need for it.

One thing I did for sure, was clear out my closet in other to accommodate the new items I was going to buy.

I basically spent my days and trimesters in big shirts, skirts and dresses. I hated jeans until it got cold.

I’m glad I didn’t get to spend lots of money and even got irritated when I had to shop for newer items because I realised my bump grew bigger in the space of 2 weeks!!!

I was glad I had big shirts that could accommodate my growing bump but spent money buying sweaters and cardigans in XLs.

I hope you found my blog post helpful especially the expectant moms out there.

Maternity Wardrobe Needs.

Being pregnant and having to adjust to your wardrobe needs without spending so much money is a huge task. Luckily, I didn’t have to buy a range of maternity clothing during my first and second trimester because I could still fit into most of my dresses, shirts and skirts and got ONE maternity leggings to style with my work shirts. All I did was pull them up above my bump.

454D5EAD-C821-4B3E-BABA-838062BA3493
I usually sized up if I needed to.

This dress is a very old dress I have had for over 5 years but its style makes it possible to wear with or without a bump.

At Home Teeth Whitening. Does it work?

Hello everyone, welcome back. I know you all are doing perfectly fine. I am glad you stopped by my blog but I will start by saying if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly do so by clicking on the menu button above, fill out your email address and let’s stay connected. Giveaway at the end***

Today’s post is all about my Teeth Whitening journey and  experience with Smile Brilliant which I absolutely loved working with.

3AB7D01F-57C4-4E49-B46A-4A6CF68429FA

961DDE22-C818-43BA-BDEC-A74EE4647188

I had never thought about having a teeth whitening process done, but when Smile Brilliant  reached out to me, I thought why not try them out. So here is a full box of the products sent to me, which includes three teeth whitening gel, three desensitizing gel , three catalyst paste, three base paste and two trays. These pastes and catalyst are used to make your impressions which will be sent to the lab in other for your custom trays to  be made for you.

2570D2DE-CF8B-4A36-8BDB-591E27FCEE42

The process of making my impressions were pretty easy and here is a video below showing you how I practically made them. https://simplystylebyj.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/IMG_7853.mov (Click the link to watch video on how I created my Teeth impressions for my trays)

My trays after they were sent to me.

To aid effective results, I had to quit using my teeth whitening toothpaste, brush with just water right before using the whitening gel add a quater syringe of the gel to my trays and commence the process between 45 mins-3 hrs a day. I usually did between 45 mins to an hour daily.

0F8315F6-3899-4216-AE52-606406205248
Applying the Desensitizing Gel

The desensitizing gel was used to calm any sensitivity I felt right after a whitening session and I was informed by their agent that you can also apply coconut oil on those affected gum regions to help soothe any sensitivity.

BEFORE & AFTER 

My overall thoughts are that these products were easy to use if you follow the instructions carefully and I will say it has contributed immensely to not only maintaining a good set of teeth, but also giving my teeth this smooth, bright and white polished effect. Now I am even more confident in smiling all day because of Smile Brilliant

My Neutrogena Collection.

Welcome back everyone, hope you are doing well. It’s been a hot minute I wrote a blog post on my skincare routine. First, if you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow button below on the right side of your screen and let’s stay connected.

CAVEAT: I must say that I am in no way a skincare expert, neither do I have any training on skincare. This is just me sharing my daily/weekly routine.

FD7FA2D2-D60B-4660-9EBA-DCA1365143E3
Body Oil, Multivitamin Booster and Whipped body balm.

I am a bigger believer and consumer of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Collection because I have a dry skin and reach out for products that contain Hyaluronic Acid which is a hydrating element.

I have been using Neutrogena products since 2012 before the Hydro Boost Collection launched, and I can attest to these products working perfectly fine with my skin. The body oil has been in y collection since then, and I always mix it with the lotion or cream.

8B12F5CB-7EC3-4EE6-8594-7B9B8071FFE5
Hydrogel Mask, Watergel Moisturiser, Overnight Mask and Hydrating Cleansing Gel.

However, there are other skincare products I use here and there but these are my constant, daily/weekly routine products that I use and will always be in my collection.

C3A06F84-60EE-4690-9B24-ACFB151F1E4C
Makeup Cleansing Towelettes and the Deep Clean Gentle Scrub.

The makeup cleansing towelette is super hydrating and moist. You can literally use just one to take away your makeup, leaving your skin hydrated. It doesn’t dry up your skin but adds moisture and hydration while you clean.

The gentle scrub is great on my skin because it is mild and can be used as a daily scrub. Its soft, smooth and rich in texture containing tiny beads.

Liquid-lotion Sunscreen in SPF 30 & Ultra Sheer Body Mist in SPF 45

I enjoyed using these sunscreen in summer, especially the spray bottle as it makes it easier for application.

MULES: THRIFTED

Although my mules were thrifted, I was able to find one with similar texture (suede) and heels  HERE The sleeves, length and slit on this dress compliments each other which gives more breathable room for my growing bump. My goal was to dress extremely comfortable while channeling my inner style and beauty.

This white off-shoulder crinkled-ruched mini dress is an absolute buy and must have for summer. Easy to get in, enough elasticity around the boob area, which can give support to my sisters who love to go braless.

The sleeves comes with an elastic band at the elbow region, which makes it adjustable to your desired length.

It’s funny how I am African but can’t stand the heat wave here in America. It is humid, and super uncomfortable. I am 100% certain at this point that the sun and its humidity is definitely different than Nigeria.

Due to the discomfort summer brings, I decided to incorporate light weight skirts into my wardrobe for summer. If I need to wear trousers, I gravitate towards Palazo Pants or Culottes.

This is an old skirt from seasons back I got from FOREVER21. Pretty sure it’s out but I will link something else HERE HERE

I was going for a Tan and Cream look, so I styled each individual item with the aim of achieving the color scheme. Shoes are STEVE MADDEN and you can shop same shoes HERE

This statement necklace is a THRIFT find and it’s ANN TAYLOR!! going for $4!!!! The price at which I got it for is incredible, that’s why I love thrifting because it is a challenge for me to find quality items without a cost.

Top is a FOREVER21 (OLD)which works as a staple piece in my closet.

Skirts are the most comfortable and breathable outfits this season. They come in various fabrics but I will personally opt for satin, silk, flair, polyester, slits, button downs etc. Jeans are not the way to go right now. I love this Who What Wear midi-skirt because not only is it stylish and breathable, it is perfect for summer.

A gorgeous mix of  colors, which made me style with a  LEVI’S Tee, a flat shoes by KARL LAGERFELD and a STEVE MADDEN cross body bag you can shop HERE

This was one of my most fun shoots with my friend CJ. We found this spot and got stuck with it. Good environment and perfect angles.

This outfit is a good choice for brunch or day-time activities with friends. You can switch this look to a night-time look by having those perfect heels on and a stack of  bangles.

I left three buttons open, in other to create the illusion of a front slit, which turned out perfect. You can decide to style it whichever way too. A tank top and a pair of blazers is also a great way to style this skirt, a crop top, or a top with puff sleeves. Any choice of color will be great as no one cares how you mix and match your colors, just make it FASHIONABLE!!!!!!!

It is amazing how I have had this top for 5 years and it still fits. Not hoarding, but I never see it and when I do I am like “OH this Top is here, let me style it one more time” I would be giving it out soon.

These pants are a perfect example of summer vibes. Its colors, designs, florals and pleat is a great mix that depicts the season. It’s a Newlook item which was gifted to me by my sister-in-law and has been one of the fun staple pieces in my closet.

Top from Primark, earrings from H&M, Shoes from Old Navy. I linked these Items on my previous post. you can check them out and shop.

Shoes extremely comfortable, good choice for summer and if you need something flat, stylish and comfortable. Top is light weight and suitable for the weather. I chose to style the pants with Teal because it’s one of the highlighted colors on the pants.

You can choose whatever color you desire.

Statement earrings are a great choice for accessorizing if you have less make up or you need to create a focus on your face. I will link a couple of statement earrings below to shop.

You can certainly style this top in various ways, one of which is with a work wear pants or skirt to create a work wear or a pair of White Jeans to help create a contrast with the Teal shade and make it stand out.

Same option goes for the Pants as you have various options in styling it. I would suggest a graphic Tee, a white shirt, tank tops, Blazers, Jumpers etc. You can also decide to mix florals together, no harm, it’s fashion and make it stylish!!!!
