ALLUREL WORLD.

By the way, my good friend Jojo, launched her fashion label a few weeks back.

#AllurelWorld

Everything is easy, breezy, affordable and chic.

...and when I say affordable, you need to trust me because I am one world renowned ruthless bargain hunter.

She has items running from between N3,000 to N12,000. Not bad eh?

Check out some of the photos I took of her collection. Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers.

And Buy Nigerian.

BUFF BECAUSE....

This guy who caused quite a stir on my Instagram account, surely deserves a place on the blog.

As I previously stated, you don't need to bother him with questions on how he gets himself so buff...




PINK LADY.

Even with the best intentions, I just couldn't come up with any other post title.

But you're only here for the photos, right?

Cheers.







AT MENTE DE MODA.

I'm fortunate enough to be able to attend this monthly shopping event that ensures I have beautiful Lagosians to photograph.

Last Sunday, I attended Mente De Moda again. 

Not a bad turn out.

I can definitely say this was the busiest one yet with lots to buy and eat, plus it felt like one big ol' party with the female (well done girl!) DJ giving the best of the "shake your waist" sort of music we love to love around these parts.

Here she is. Sass and all.

FALANA MUSIC.

The other night I went off to ALARA with friends to check out this new lady vocalist called Falana.

She's been making some waves on the interwebs and her style is unconventional, at least here in Nigeria where everyone keeps trying to convince me to shake my waist or come over to get said waist shifted. 

She was good. Fresh.

Acoustics at the venue, not so much.

Her stage presence and crystal clear vocals made up for it.

And I got some street style photos, naturally.

THIS INNER PEACE QUEST...

For all the one thousand times I've been asked what's most important to me, I've answered "my peace of mind" as many times. Without fail. Always my peace.

However in the past few weeks, I've really struggled with crystallizing this concept to my reality. There have been uninvited changes in circumstance that have left me feeling a cocktail of emotions. Anger, bitterness, insecurity, a bit of hate, disdain, self-pity, and a good dose of distrust. 

With humankind's seemingly insatiable taste for conflict, no matter how peaceful you are as an individual, you cannot avoid dem nasties. 

Sometimes regardless of who they are to you, you've got to downright eliminate these toxic people and relationships from your life. Anyone who threatens your mental or worse, your physical well being HAS GOT TO GO! 
It's not malice. It's self preservation. 
Peace is beyond important. I can't over stress it. When we cry, the spiritually conscious ones among us offer up fervent prayers, meditate and say affirmations. Yet, in all honesty, we still cry. 

Prayers are great actually! "Pray without ceasing" is the instruction from my Holy Book even. But while we pray, can we also do?

So...focus shift. 

How about being uncharacteristically kind to the next person you meet right after reading this? That's my plan anyway...for the next...well..till whenever. 
I genuinely think being EXTRA kind has the potential power to lift you out of a cloud of inner chaos. It's just a thought. But a valid one methinks.  


And hey, even if you don't necessarily step into deep content afterwards, you can smile having known you've satisfied the need for a near-extinct aspect of humanity. Fact is, your immediate environment and the world at large can do with a sh*tload of kindness right about now. 


Would love to hear your thoughts. 

Cheers.

REAL IN TEAL.

Feel free to ignore my cheesy post titles.

Can we just appreciate this nicely styled and cute couple dressed in tones of teal?

Cheers. 


WITH A 'TUDE.


We can't all be tall, dark, handsome and confident.

But he is.

YOMS COLLECTION. YUMMY COLLECTION.


Snooped online and found out these outfits were made by a Nigerian label called Yoms Collection. Find them on Instagram, and this is not a sponsored post. Just info.

Cheers ma dears.
