A cool way to pull off black and white

street style

I hope everyone is having an amazing week!!
The last few months has been stressful but I am doing really fine.
Oh and by the way I just want to say that you guys know I am a lawyer right? So do not hesitate to contact me If you need someone to give you legal advice or you want to do anything under corporate law because I am the person you need :D
I need Jobs please :)

There is this feeling I get when I decide to stop worrying and I give all my worries and headache to God. It is the most amazing feeling ever.
I learnt that stressing and worrying does not change anything. All you can do is be positive, change your mindset, tell yourself that you would be fine and lastly give it to God.

Karl Lagerfeld once said "Black and White always looks Modern"

The simplicity of Monochrome makes it a timeless classic and once again I have fallen in love with it. Wearing black and white head to toe is the easiest formula for a put together look. whether it's wearing black and white pants, tops, dresses or anything else, I feel like it is hard to mess up this combination. Black and white is still a big trend and high street shops like Zara, Mango still have an amazing collection of Monochromatic outfits that look Amazing.

Another reason I love this trend is because you don't have to spend time worrying about what accessories will coordinate since black and white goes with everything. You can simply wear anything that looks nice and goes with the look.

I am wearing a White shirt with a sleeveless top I wore over it, paired with a short skater skirt and a gold chain belt because I wanted a lil bit of colour with gold shoes and a grey bag.

I totally love my look and I think It makes me look super cool lol!
If I don't praise myself who will?

Do you like this look?

African Hair Series 1: Hair on a Budget

hair series

Hello Everyone!
I hope you guys had an amazing weekend?
Mine was alright till I heard of the death of my best friends dad, I was shattered and sad I didn't know what to say or do but at the end of the day I told myself God has a reason for everything.
My love, I know you will see this and I want you to know that I love you, I will always be here for you and it is going to be fine because God know best.

I know this has nothing to do with the post but I had to let everyone know that life isn't perfect and even bloggers do not have perfect lives and we go through things as well, Ignore the amazing pictures or perfect Instagram feed or whatever and Just be happy with own life because you never really know what people go through except they tell you.

Do not forget to Thank God for your life and family and always continue to pray for Everyone.

In my last post I talked about trying new things and one of these things was changing from the normal hair styles I usually make ( which is side part or center part weaves)  to something totally different from the norm. If you know me you will realise that I don't even make braids, I am scared of hair pain as well as scared to look different and I just always want to look a certain way.

So I decided to start a hair series and over the next 3 months I'll do a totally different hairstyle that is less than 5,000 Naira and 20 dollars for those outside Nigeria.

I have two reasons for wanting to do this series which are:
  • To be more open to trying new things for 3 months.
  • Get nice looking looking hair on a Budget.
For those in Nigeria you know the Economy is hard and letting your human hair rest for a while or taking a break from normal braids to try other styles, won't be a bad idea plus maybe you have over used your weaves and there is no money to buy more.

Let's do this together.

The hair I used is called afro funky and it is an expression product, I used one pack and didn't even finish it. If you want it really full then you can get two packs but your hair will look so huge.
I got it for 1,500 Naira in Wuse Market here in Abuja and I found it on an American site for 8 dollars, you also need an attachment that you can get for 800 naira and for those outside Nigeria below 5 dollars for the weaving.
Whatever state or country you are in, you will definitely find it in the market or a beauty supply store.
I fixed Ghana braids at the front and the hair stylist cut it in a box shape, then the hair was sewn halfway so it was basically sewing and weaving.

I was actually really scared to try this hairstyle but I told myself I could do it and I totally love my new look, I remember leaving the saloon and I got like a lot of compliments before I got home and  everyday people still tell me they love it.

I hope you guys love my hair and you are excited about this new series like moi!!

Lady In Red

Hello Everyone!
This Month has been amazing for me and I hope it is for you too and If you don't think so then I really want you to reflect on what God has done for you this year. The fact that you have food, shelter, clothes and you are alive is enough to make you grateful today.

My song of the day is Made a way by Travis Greene.
I was worrying too much and my friend told me to listen to this song, I did and I loved it so much and I couldn't stop singing. I felt better and Encouraged and the Amazing thing was that in less than 3 hours after all this, a Miracle happened and what I was worrying about just went away Immediately.

These pictures were taken on a Sunday after church which was a praise day and so I had danced so much that I feel like you can see how happy I was in the pictures :)

red skater skirt

Ignore my Vampire teeth lol
I got this top few weeks ago and Immediately I saw it I knew I had to get it and It was on sale as well.
I wanted to look really girly, so I paired it with a skater skirt with heels and a cute small bag to complete the look.
I hope you like?

Can you spot my new hair?
I decided to try something different and I am actually In love with it.
I am a very weird girl because I hate to try new things or experiment due to fear or whatever it was but I can tell you now that I have decided to let myself go and try new things.
I actually want to start a hair series but I'll let you guys know the details later.

How would you style yours?

shirt into an off the shoulder top

turn a shirt into an off the shoulder top
Last year through to this year, we have seen the off the shoulder trend in every conceivable way, shape, and form. I mentioned in one of my earlier posts; I have a lot of these off the shoulder tops and have been obsessed with the trend, you can see them HERE, HERE and HERE.

Recently, I was going through my closet and I was staring at this lovely work shirt that I got for Christmas :D, and while I was thinking of  what  I was going to wear to go out with friends; I remembered how “Aimee song” and a few stylish women on the streets of Paris and New York turned their shirts into  an off the shoulder tops. I got really excited thinking about that, and decided to turn my “work shirt” into an off the shoulder top. Pretty exciting!! Now my regular work shirt is a stylish shirt, which I can wear out with friends for drinks, a date, or an event.

TBH this is the easiest DIY version of the off-the-shoulder ever, you literally just unbutton the top half of your shirt, pull it over your shoulder and tie to your waist or tuck it in like I did in a jean or skirt or pants. I didn’t even need a big shirt to do this; this shirt is my perfect size.
I am so excited about this because I do not have work shirts anymore but Stylish shirts.
I’m a huge fan of this DIY, I mean, who isn’t? They’re cute, simple and easy to make. The best part is you can style them as much as you’d like by adding accessories, belt or whatever you want.

If you do not go out a lot, and therefore you do not have varieties of blouses or tops but definitely have shirts for work.  Go ahead and try this DIY out, and let me know how it goes. 

Also, comment and leave your feedbacks! 
Thank you
