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.

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.

Sustainable Fashion.

Hello beautiful people, welcome back! 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.

THRIFTING THRIFTING THRIFTING has been one of my favorite sports because it promotes sustainability in the fashion industry.

My Entire Outfit is Pre-Owned

I curated this look with individual items in my closet that I had purchased from thrift shops.

F80615C6-6D3F-41B7-AE33-C201283966CC

These items are unique as they can be worn individually or paired together as seen. Pre-owned items foster sustainability because they are second-hand, and are ecologically friendly. Hence the need to produce new items will diminish.

B94851DE-B5CA-4F72-A085-39F9E40F31E8

As a lover of Vintage clothes and an owner of a VINTAGE SHOP, I find it more interesting to go in search of these items and most of them are designer items, very unique (not seen everywhere), stylish and good quality.

Pre-owned Purse.

CFE91709-72F0-4FC7-9705-82E2C8169271

One of the advantages of having pre-owned items, is that you get them at affordable prices, if not super cheap. Most of them are fairly used and occasionally, you can find new items with tags on!!!!

CASSIA WALNUT & VINTAGE ROSE TIMEPIECE

If you know me, you know I love vintage accessories hence I chose this vintage inspired design from their Cassia collection. This is made of walnut wood and it comes with a natural finishing oil which is used for the care and preservation of the watch.

You can check out their website HERE   for their incredible watch options for both men and women. You can personalize the watch with a watch engraving and/or box engraving..

As a part of the Design Network, I have the opportunity to give my opinions about styles, colors, and more for their products. Right now, JORD is focusing on their new product line– handbags and would like your help with the next collection! These bags are made from Suberhide, aka cork oak, and vegan leather. The cork oak tree is one of the three trees in the world that can be stripped of its bark without dying. As the bark regrows, it pulls in a great deal of carbon dioxide in the air. The material is scratch and tear resistant, hypoallergenic, water-resistant, flame retardant, anti-static, and resistant to stains. JORD put a lot of research into this material to make a high-quality, natural material handbag!

Hence, I would like to invite you along with me on this journey! JORD is focused on creating products that you are looking for and would love your feedback.

Swatching Lip Monthly Goodies.

Hello beautiful people, welcome back! I hope you all are doing well. If you haven’t yet subscribed to my blog, kindly hit the follow below on the right side on your screen and let’s stay connected.

Today I am writing about LIP MONTHLY  and all their lovely goodies.

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.

I used the Eyeshadow Stick  to highlight my brow bone.

Overall, it is a good mix of makeup items which would last a long time.

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.

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.

9C79D35B-CB90-48A4-B640-E516F8745542
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.

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.

AEF0F9CF-36FB-456D-8277-542F842A1706

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

993A3D6A-19B2-429F-B693-2F1C1606AC6C

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.

0A310AE7-983B-427F-8D49-051E6C564D2F

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!!!!!!!

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.

2339F929-AAD5-4EB7-AA7E-A15D0C6437AA

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.

52243EFF-CA7B-475E-A5C1-E8874D7ECA72

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!!!!

The sun is getting hotter by the day and thank God the days of tornadoes are behind us! We had a terrible straight two-weeks tornado episodes. However, I am back to share this monotone look with a work wear shirt.

First off, kindly check out the new listings in my VINTAGE CLOTHING SHOP Here

Did I mention how I am in love with lace fabrics? especially those that come in bigger cords. They are rich in their quality, looks and texture, but can be tricky as when you don’t go for the right size, style and design.

322E7505-AB04-412B-A9E4-D6E898F4D655

A basic corporate shirt can be worn in several ways. You can switch this up at work if you have to catch up with friends for drinks after work. All you have to do is roll up the sleeves, let a few buttons down and knot it up to help accentuate your waist line.

B7E4ED2F-47AE-427A-B891-DEED4E1FA455

This skirt is one of the prettiest item I have owned. It is very unique and can be worn in different ways. The color and pattern is fabulous, elevating the looks of a basic work wear shirt. My friend CJ certainly knows how to capture details.

Shirt is linen which is one of the most annoying fabrics ever!! The wrinkage level on this fabric cannot be over-emphasized.

Wonderful weather, very airing and calm. As usual, went for a little hangout with my friend CJ at the Midwest City Shopping center at Tinker Air force Base.

Entire outfit is pretty old except my Hat and Bag. I decided to have the hat and the straw bag because we had a park location shoot which was a perfect way to add a picnic look to my outfit. The hat is from TARGET which I absolutely love because is packable, adjustable and great to shade the UV rays from my face.

The Straw bag which is one of my most recent spring summer buy, is from Looks Like Summer and they have a beautiful range of bags. You can shop mine HERE it’s called the Grace Straw Basket Bag.

A beautiful yet windy Easter Sunday, I spent half the time controlling my hair and hoping the wind doesn’t blow away my wig away! lol. With no clue on what to wear to church, I wanted something light and easy to throw on. In a second, I grabbed the top and pants, not knowing how I was going to style them yet, put them on and I said hmm why not go for an all yellow tonal look!!! Bam I paired with my shoes from Aldo , my Target Bag and my Earrings.

B99454C5-2090-48AF-821B-86DF41AA21BC

I hope everyone had a pleasant Easter celebration with friends and family. For me, it was a very chilled day, went to church, got home, spoke to family back home, ate lunch and spent the rest of my day watching a series ” The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” I recommend watching it.

The Wind was crazy!!!!!!!

The Top is a set from a Zaful Outfit I got about two years ago and the pants I got as a gift and I believe its from Ross mixed both together to achieve this look.

Still in the 40s, I decided to style an all white outfit with this chunky knit cardigan.

My Pants are Linen and you all know it takes a second for Linen to gather up creases. However, they are one of the fabrics for this season. They are breathable and light weight, perfect for summer.

I loved paring my look with these blue earrings to give a pop of colour. They are light weight and have gold plated attachments to them.

Pairs with Neutral Flat Shoes and Bag.

It is spring and I decided to incorporate a couple of pastel colours into my colour scheme outfits. I knew I wanted to style this my top by  Whowhatwear being a cool tone that will go perfectly with my Chic and Stylish Jacket from Shein. Never shopped in Shein but this was a good buy, although I got some wrong picks in there.

B93DC978-AE3E-4A18-9DCE-6FDD39BCF319

I will advise that when shopping from Shein, go a size up because they run small in fits ie it’s a China brand.

Paired the Top and Jacket with the Alfred Dunhill Pastel Yellow Pants I have had for quite a while now. I love it because I can style it as a work wear, casual outfit and night out with friends.  For my accessories, I styled with a dainty pearl pin earings to match the pearls on the jacket, my Giogio Armani favorite wristwatch, flat pair of beige shoes and my blurred out yellow mini crossbody bag on the table right there.

On March 30th, I launched my my Vintage Clothing Shop!!!! Check it out HERE and I ship worldwide. If you know a little about me on here, I usually style a couple of vintage pieces and I love hw unique and different the stand out! Hence, I decided to start up an online clothing store where you can find and purchase all the exceptional pieces I have sourced for and handpicked.

2ECF1AC2-B6DE-4A80-9C06-D928D1802C90

I must say, I am very excited yet a little tensed about this current situation because it’s a path I have never taken, but I am willing to learn and grow in it. I am also happy I get to make available timeless pieces made of quality fabrics.

9D9F7045-ACAD-4797-8525-739CEF3CB9B8

Did I  mention this denim Skirt is Vintage? Styling these items with modern day clothes are one of my best styling activities. They expand my creativity and I appreciate textures, patterns and designs in different ways.

An interesting day again with CJ, after we had driven around town, looking for a good picture location, dealing with shadows in our tests shoot, we ended on a busy bridge with tonnes of people walking by. Could our photo session get any worse? No, but we had to summon courage for the lens.

C4FE5CEE-FE05-4325-A3DF-ECBCAD7F2FC2

My shirt had wrinkled from the long sitting and driving, but I was hell bent on shooting this look. Achieving this casual day time look, I styled my multi-colored shirt with a white denim, paired with my midi block heels from Cato Fashion  which I absolutely recommend as a transitional piece for spring. They are sold out on these because I got them last season. Linking a couple here Miu Miu Camel-Brown Heels  which you can also shop from Current Boutique  and this VERY similar one by Spring Step  .

In the bid of taking these pictures, I was practically sinking into the grass in other to get a good spot. Any ways, I want to talk about this H&M satin scarf.

9BB40B29-295A-4754-9C2C-7087CB76E80C

Such a beautiful, huge, multi-colored, patterned scarf I used to create this ruche. I laid the scarf out, folded it into two, threw over my neck, making sure that the length on each sides were equal, used a slim belt to secure it round my waist, adjusted as required and moved the scarf around to create the ruche/pleats.

0B07A3A7-FBC9-4829-8F57-4944160A5F12

I chose to style this scarf by wearing an all cream outfit, to create a matching contrast on the scarf. Linking this DKNY Scarf here, it’s huge, suitable to create this look and can also be found in MACYs . Also this one Here which can be found in H&M.

The Streets and Fashion.

Hello everyone, welcome back. It is officially Spring today as I compose this post, so I am aware that we will all be excited about the warmth we have now.

Saturday morning, CJ and I decided to take the streets for our photo session. The first couple of hours was a hassle because we had chosen Brick town here in Oklahoma City, little did we know that it would be packed full with people because it was a beautiful warm day.

dsc_5963

We took it down to the streets, with a number of people walking around, road blocks and people staring, we kept doing our thing. At first, I was a little uncomfortable because I have never gone out out to take pictures in a busy City where people are watching. After a while, I became confident and didn’t care, walking and flipping my hair across the streets.

dsc_5955

On to this Ralph Lauren Blazer! It was the focal point of this shoot. I chose to go with an all white look, to help accentuate the Blazer. I love this long-line Blazer because it has an awesome cut, the side pockets, the detailed gold buttons, on the sleeves and front area. I linked a couple of long-line blazers here Theory Super-Cinch Fremont Plaid Long-Line Blazer through Neiman Marcus from Shop Style Collective . This Anne Klein Bold Stripe Blazer Jacket is similar to it and you can get it from Nordstrom Rack Here

Stacked with a three tier necklace I got from Charlotte Russ (unfortunately they are closing down) hoops and my purse as the accessories.

Spring is here, there will be lots of weddings so I decided to make a post on wedding outfit inspiration. This is a French Connection dress which I got from Nordstrom

63455C25-CF0F-4C58-BDBF-97F371E45F98

The lace, the pleats and the deep V neck line, makes this dress and great choice for a wedding guest. It is simple yet stylish with the details on every corner. Since I got this dress off the rack in Nordstrom, there was only one available so I will link a couple of dresses here. I have combed through French Connection’s website and can’t find it.

This Vince Camuto Lace Sheath dress can also be found in Nordstrom. This Bardot Gemma Halter Lace Sheath Dress is also a great choice.
