WHERE TO EAT||OCEANS 11 SEAFOOD

Hello everyone, going out of my comfort zone to bring you a review on where to eat in Abuja. a youtube friend of mine and a blogger Chioma at http://www.chiomajenni.comasked, if I would be available to have a late lunch at a restaurant in the city, OCEANS11 SEAFOOD at Wuse 2 and we had a nice time, from the reception to the meals and all, now the name is from the fact that they serve 11 course meals from the sea but other variety of what to eat, are also available which includes a grill bar where varieties of grilled meats are offered.

FLORAL POWER (VINTAGE FASHION)

you know that one outfit, that is so comfortable, you wish you could wear them everyday, well this whole outfit from the print shirt to the shoes, are my favorite to go and you would have recognized the shirt from my post HERE

AVOIDING GRIEF(BREAKFAST THOUGHT)

First thing you would notice after the colorful rice, is the clear appearance that might mistake me for a vegetarian (no meat). then the idea of today's post came. I love meat most especially Goat meat and chicken, in fact these two alone, and not having any of both in my plate almost made me sad and I realized that there are pains (grief) we could always easily avoid by being content with whatever we have.  the devil is always at his best to remind us of what is missing in our lives, instead of what God has apparently blessed us with. I'm blessed to have found rice to eat, as many don't have such opportunities, well I found gratitude with a bottle of wine..

TO BE GRATEFUL

yesterday made it four years I survived a terrorist attack at the Thisday Headoffice in Abuja, it was quite a scare and looking back now I can only thank God, because he never leaves us nor forsakes us. this is me being grateful, hope you have a blessed week

WEDDING OUTFIT INSPIRATION

Hello Everyone, its been a while since i had any wedding engagements and I've never really thought it out to get myself outfits that would suit such occasion, then recently a friend of mine got married and a week to the wedding was quite a struggle to piece out what to wear as I did not buy AsoEbi. So i'm here with what I thought would have been appropriate for me to wear that day, now realizing why Aso Ebi is important

Aso Ebi: Uniform attire worn in Nigeria for ceremonies mostly in native print

NOT FOR ONLY OURSELVES WERE WE BORN

I usually tend not to post my day to day fun stuff I do, that's because I barely have any, and love the comfort of my bed. a good friend of mine and my classmate (Bisi) got married over the weekend to her bae, and it was beautiful to see everyone back together after a long while. I was not able to get a full picture with my phone, but I managed to steal a selfie and boy we all looked fab! hehe, now time for people to ask when is yours coming, well there is time for everything under the sun, and my time now is to wish her a beautiful God filled marriage with a lot of blessing, there will be a post up later on my struggle to find an outfit for that day!

PRAY TO GOD FOR RAIN

Am I the only one seriously in need of rain, it poured down twice and then there was this conflicting weather, harmattan as it is popularly called in April, probably speaks more about my outfit, found this jacket while thrifting and had to put a post for it, the texture and stripes made me love it more  I was reading Zechariah 10:1 MSG "Pray to God for rain, it's time for spring, to God, the rainmaker, spring thunderstorm maker, maker of grain and barley". funny how God provides the answer to our prayers before we go off whining that he does not care

WHY I COOK(AFRICAN DELICACY)

Hello Everyone, the reason why people cook vary, some have jobs that require them to, others have a spouse or family that makes them to, and well others like me cook because, we love to eat! simple.

AS GOOD AS THE BRUSHES

sorry for the poor quality picture, sometimes this things happen. I dont do make up tutorials and what have you, but over the years, i've improved on my makeup abilities and I want to tell you the first trick that stuck your makeup is only as good as the brushes I've learnt that for your makeup to have the proper finishing you see on most, Make Up Artist (MUA), you have to get brushes that go with every step, I know I can't do videos but Youtube is a great teacher! muah

DETAILS ABOUT MY HAIR

Hello Fam, (I'm used to this word), well, i've been on a curly hair of late, even though natural this isn't my real hair (I honestly wish it was) laughs, well its a wig, what better way to protect your real hair, if your tired of sitting in the salon all the time, than getting yourself a wig that fits. I got this Vivica Fox wig from Cassabella stores at the Silverbird Galleria in Abuja and boy is it wonderful.  its not so cheap, but you can save up, if it requires so.. I hope this was helpful and I added an Olive Oil Conditioner seen HERE by the way spring is here, why not enjoy the weather and put on some colorful clothes with pretty flowers :D

A BIT OF EVERYTHING

Hello Everyone, the good thing about being a blogger is that, you can be a dressed like a clown, a lady at the same time. The rain is upon us again, and God knows how I looked forward to it, the heat had started to become unbearable.  found this Mickey mouse accessory the other day at Wuse Market (Abuja) and decided to add it to my already chic look.. what do you think?

FINDING TIME TO READ

The beauty about blogging, is the ability to share stories that relate to your audience. so lately I've had quite a challenge reading, I pick up a book and theres something that just keeps, taking away that drive to suck in knowledge. truth be told my attention to a lot of things have drifted and I'm drained. i've decided to settle each problem with a schedule and I'm trying to stick to it..  I still won't fail to thank you for being like close circle friends and sharing in my moments xoxo..

ITS A DIFFERENT KIND OF ME

Hello Everyone, todays post seems to be different, I'm happy really happy, and that barely happens (OOPS!) yea I said it. Sometimes we just need to shut the world out and be at peace with ourselves. notice something different with my outfit, and me trying to play with some edits! by the way what post would you like to see up? hows your week going, trust me I like to hear your stories, on my comment box, and I appreciate each and everyone of you that tries to...much love xoxo

OUTFIT INSPIRATIONS

having a beautiful outfit post, takes a lot of task, and most times if not planned ahead can be quite displeasing when the final execution is out.. so what I do is prepare is prepare layers, that make me not forget, its almost like a mood board, sometimes after all these you might just decide to remove or add a piece to the final look! and there you go this is my prep for any Outfit of the Day










FAV BEAUTY PRODUCTS

Hello Fam, I'm guilty of not talking about my beauty products, truth be told I think of it a lot but execution is my problem. so today I took a bold step to write about a few of my favorite beauty products lately
how is the easter period going, the story of the passover is just a reminder of what he (JESUS) did for us more than 2000 years ago, his selfless service has made the world sane again. DETAILS OLIVE OIL/EDGE CONTROL :To allow for hair tidiness, especially if you love braids and need it to look its best always NIVEA ANTI-PERSIPIRANT STRESS PROTECT  PEARL AND BEAUTY  finding a beauty product that is skin tolerant is quite difficult and after a friend introduced me to this, its become my favorite to go product MARY KAY BRONZE 3 I struggled for the longest time to find a foundation that would sooth well on my oily skin and the Mary Kay bronze 3 (oil control) EYE SHADOW PRIMAR never knew the relevance of the shadow primary till I got one, currently obsessing over it 
I'm not good at…
