last night i attended an event by Sideview magazine (www.sideviewmagazine.com). The event; 3bloggers one night which is part of the magazines 5th year anniversary took place in Kentish town in London. It was a small cosy event with an intimate crowd and i was there alongside 2 other bloggers to talk about the importance of fashion bloggers in the fashion world.
I was pretty nervous at first but i think i got a hang of it once i got the ball rolling and the crowd was really kind to me so i guess i aced it.
I met a bunch of really cool people and it was a great vibe all through…
It was a lovely night, i even made a new friend/fan, his name is Tony and he literally said he had to have his picture taken with me as i am so beautiful. He even dragged me across the street to make sure he had it taken underneath the Kentish town Graffiti. He was such a sweetheart.
PS: no black in sight (well the handbag doest count) Guess the curse is broken, Somebody shout hallelujah!!!!

The weather has been so kind to us in London its been pretty amazing. So amazing that it is hard to find the skin to fabric ratio balance. Its so hot that you cannot help but want to walk out with little or almost nothing on.
i have always had a problem when it comes to jumpsuits. Its either my derrière is too big/ my upper body is too long which equates to an uninvited camel toe or its just way too long and unflattering on me. So imagine my excitement when i stumbled on this beautiful jumpsuit in Zara which surprisingly fits pretty well and its a perfect equilibrium in terms of skin to fabric ratio…
London feels and looks different in the sun, it feels like the city is alive and happy, people even apologise when they bump into you in the streets (that never happens in the winter). I really hope the weather stays this way for the next couple of weeks…

its been a minute since i wrote on my blog as i have been a pretty busy bee. Its summer time and sort of like a high season for styling gigs especially for music and entertainment clients. 2-3 weeks ago i worked with the beautiful Tiwa Savage and styled 2 videos from her forthcoming debut album; Once upon a time. As soon as i have the permission to let the cat out of the bag, you guys will be the first to know x.
So less i digress, i styled the African Superstar Iyanya last weekend and i must say it was both stressful and exciting. It is totally different from editorial or the normal photo-shoot concept as you always have to be on the ball and time is always of the essence. Anyways i think i will ease up on the words and let the images do the talking.
T-shirt: Mr Garbe Fela
Trainers: Guiseppe Zanotti
I decided to wear my comfortable wedge trainers as i wanted to be able to runaround like a headless chicken with the coolest wide brim hat just incase things dont go as planned
which was literally the case in this situation.
All in all it was a great experience and as this isnt my first time of working with Iyanya, it was humbling experience to style such an amazing talent.
i am Always proud to toot my African horn and this case is no different

i have been a bit down over the past few weeks. Having personal issues to deal with and i cannot seem to find solace in my loved ones…so last friday my wonderful mate decided to drag me out for a meal and drinks in town to get my mind off things. I decided to dress to kill hoping that would lift my spirit and guess what? it totally did…the pictures are a bit blurry cos i bullied my mate to take them on an iPhone lol.
I am so grateful for the friends i have. We might not be related by blood, but the fact that most of them are willing to do anything to see me happy. Makes them family to me
Have a wonderful weekend xx
