A Valentine's Look Book || Love Lessons

Happy Valentine's day everyone!

This year, I curated an easy Valentine's look book to make up for not being able to do a Christmas one. I had hoped to post this early enough (unlike last year) to still inspire your Valentines day outfits but I couldn't get around to it. I hope there are a couple of 11th hour addicts that I can still help.
Catch up here: Something for Valentine's
I also decided to add a few love lessons that I have picked up along the way. Now, make no mistake. I am no relationship expert. Far from it. In fact, I know a couple or so people who are rolling their eyes all the way to the back of their heads as they read this right now.
But, hey! Who says single pringles can't give relationship tips. I mean, if we had had it all figured out, then, we'd be married. Right? Don't agree? Lol. Moving on!

For my first look, I have on this really simple TNL dress that I got here.

It's not exactly my style as I don't particularly like snug clot…

Wanderlust || Dubai

Hi all!
I know it took forever but I've finally come through with a second wanderlust post.

Catch up on the first one here.
It's not my fault people! The spirit is willing but the account is weak.
I visited Dubai a couple of months ago and in as much as Dubai is one of those places that you kind of feel you have visited vicariously due to the number of posts you might have read on it, I must say I was still pleasantly surprised.
Arriving in Abu Dhabi, I was blown away by the airport first of all. Coming from the Murtala Muhammad airport, I was just glad to go through immigration processes without having to "find small thing for anybody". The next thing that awed me was the good roads. I know, I know! But it's been ages since I saw such well done roads. I just kept staring like: What? No way guys! No nerve wrecking speed bumps? Not even small pot holes? Ah ah! Do they have two heads?
Because we flew business class, we were able to get to Dubai from Abu Dhabi wher…

Water Falls - Kwa, Gurara and Agbokim

Niagara falls next. Amen? Amen!
Hi everyone.

For someone who doesn't like water, I have been to quite a number of water falls. Okay, just three but that's a lot for someone like me. So, I've concluded that it is not that I do not like water. I just do not like to be in water.
I've found that falls are quite calming. Maybe it's the soft sound the water makes as it cascades over the hills.
My first waterfall experience, Kwa falls, located in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State is my best till date. It was so soothing, I didn't want to leave. Sitting there, away from the noise and away from the world was so perfect.

As a child, I had been there a couple or so times on school excursions but they never really let us near the water. This time, we were able to climb the rocks through the water. It was both exhilarating and scary knowing that just one misstep could send you falling all the way down. But, climb, we did!

Be ready for sand flies though. I …

Style Inspiration - Work Wear

Hey all!
How are you doing? Great? Great!

I have always wanted to do a work style inspiration post. One time, I had drawn up a schedule and paired the outfits, got my friend to take the pictures only for every single thing to go wrong that day. I am not exaggerating.
First of all, my room mate lost her phone while we were packing up to head to the shoot. We should probably have taken that as a sign to discontinue but we forged on. We spent about an hour going between the location and my house but the phone wouldn't turn up. We finally decided to just start shooting. All of a sudden became very windy. We kept on! Lol! And then, the straw that broke the camel's back: the lens we were shooting with fell. At that point, I realized that my village people had caught up with me so we shelved the shoot.
I had initially planned to shoot this as part of my Christmas look book last year but I never got around to it. I did wear it to church on Christmas day however. I had to slay for Jes…
