Hi guys, I'm sure you know by now that I love the monochrome trend. I got a dress on Asos hoping I'd rock it on its own but it was sooo short that I couldn't wear it on it's own so I rolled it up, got my black trousers and peped the waist so the 'join-join' I did wouldn't show. I felt like my black shoes were too plain so I made a bow and attached it to the pumps for a little "umph". How did I do?

Love isn't a product of God, it is an attribute of God. It is not something He does. It is something God is. And guess what? we are made in His image and likeness....

Lots of love,

Hi guys, I wanted to tell you guys a story about idolatry but I didn't want it to be long, sad and boring. God doesn't appreciate us having idols and I know we sometimes limit idols to some wooden thing we bow down and worship. Yes, those are idols but c'mon guys, we are in the 21st century, the definition of idols have broadened. An idol is a physical representation of your "god" and thus anything you treat as important or more important than God is your idol and idolatry is a sin. So think of anything really, money, your partners, SHOES, clothes and many others can be your idols. For example, when I was younger, I would skip church if I didn't have anything fancy to wear, so fancy clothes were my idols. They were way too important to me and a great hindrance to my service to God. I hope you get the picture. Have a lovely week guys!

Hi guys, I took a road trip with a couple of my friends on a RAINY day to the lake. The weather was cold and we had to walk and walk and walk so comfortable shoes were a must. It's a really simple outfit I pulled together last minute but I felt like sharing with you guys! By the way, I had my first  "my hair is natural" moment. I took time out to flat iron my natural hair and as soon as water touched it, all my hard work disappeared and my hair just shrunk. I refused to let that stop me from having fun though; after all, it is just hair. I am extremely knackered at the moment but I hope you all had an amazing Saturday!

On the boat ride, I had the opportunity to take loads of pictures of absolutely beautiful houses and I am in no way the greatest photographer but I thought I'd share some of these pictures with you.

Okay quick story, as we were leaving the lake, I saw these flowers that were yet to bloom and I wanted to take a picture and my friend said they were ugly and weren't worth a picture. Anyways, I have "strong head", I took a picture. As I was looking at these flowers and remembering my friend's reaction to it, it made me think of how easily we JUDGE THE PROCESS. We look at people and just conclude they are not at a place worth paying attention to and it saddens me because sometimes these people  like these flowers are in  a process. Soon they will bloom just like the flowers, but if we pay them no attention like they are nothing, we can actually be an obstacle to them them being the absolute best they can be. If God is the only One that can shape the vessel, perhaps we should take into consideration how we are in no place to determine the importance of people who are still being shaped by God...the people in the process...the people yet to bloom...people like me and you...

Lots of love,

Hi guys, today's post is a little different. It is about GIVING BACK and I love to do just that. I am Nigerian (in case you didn't know) and it's children's day for us on May 27th and I was contacted by JUMIA with a lovely opportunity to give back. JUMIA is an online retail store for those living in Nigeria with basically EVERYTHING from fashion to electronics to books and even stuff for your home. They offered to donate N1 (One Naira) for every like on their facebook page and twitter which you can find on their website. This money goes to providing food for less privileged children in Nigeria. I know it seems very little but if everyone does a little bit of something, there will be a BIG change.
As at May 13 which is the day this commenced, they had already raised N5 877 and I would really appreciate if we helped them to raise more money so some kids can actually have the opportunity to actually feel like kids...

In support of that, there is a discount code for all those who want to shop at JUMIA when you use the code: ENG37APX


Have a lovely weekend guys
Lots of love,

I recently started watching Scandal and I quite enjoy it. I like a particular phrase used a lot "whenever there is a problem, get Olivia Pope on it" because she will fix it. I made me really think and appreciate how much God is the ultimate fixer. I know we go to God for the big things like exams, job opportunities, cancer and all that big stuff but I wonder if we go to God for the little things. I'm a firm believer that if God can care about something so insignificant like the number of hair on my head, then He cares about the little things. Like God is so much bigger than any depression, loneliness and heartbreak you may feel and He cares about you right down to the little things. I just thought I should let you know that you don't have to go through whatever it is you're going through alone because God really cares about every little detail that makes you you.

I know I'm supposed to wear a gorgeous dress and have a "sexy" face but I really really cannot take myself that seriously so I spent the whole "photoshoot" period laughing so hard I could hardly get any correct shot but I tried my hardest. The wind was not my friend at all, it kept carrying my dress up and I kept fighting back. This dress has been sitting in  my wardrobe for months...I plan on sewing down the slit because I need to be comfortable and that slit doesn't really make me feel the most comfortable.

Hi darlings, I have valid reasons for being gone. I'm currently writing my law finals. If you're wondering what my title means, it's Yoruba (my language) for "5 more days to go" which is exactly how much time I have left. I truly cannot wait to be done with exams and have a month to enjoy myself. So please bear with me for the time being and keep me in your prayers. 

It's really one of those 'I can't be arsed days'. So I just threw on my most comfortable pair of jeans, a semi-loose tee, a blazer and heels. Yesterday was my photographer/homeboy/inherited younger brother's birthday and I just want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOTA
