You know you've made it in the blogosphere when India-based women's designer line eShakti offer you the dress of your choice. LOL
I'm kidding but I can't tell you the number of times I have seen their pieces on bloggers I admire and thought to myself, wow, I wish one day they decide to collaborate with me..and well, the day has arrived!!

In Competition with myself

  Do you sometimes feel like you're not good enough? Or how about feeling like no matter what you do or how good you are at doing it, you just can't seem to catch a break?
Well, it happens to me and I know these aren't the "best" emotions and I shouldn't think like that and blah blah blah, but I'm only human and I have my faults.
There's 2 things that get to me from time to time- the first is the fact that my blog just doesn't seem to be taking off to the heights I know it can reach and the second one is just plain and simple jealousy.

Halloween outfit inspirations

  I'm not really into Halloween. To be honest, growing up in New York, when Halloween came around, we were the ones who gave out candy but never went trick-or-treating. My parents were very traditional and dare I say, paranoid,lol. They are/were typical African parents who learnt of Halloween when we came to North America and really didn't see the point of this festivity and to be honest, neither do I.

Piano girl?

Fact: Once upon a time, I used to play the piano. At the intermediary level but still, I used to play and took lessons 3 times a week. Then, I stopped, I gave up and I wish I had kept up. I found it boring and hard at the time but now I sit and think how sexy it would be to be able to play, lol.

I don't always wear make up but when I do...

Happy weekend folks!
I am no make up guru and I won't even pretend to be. My daily make up routine consist of 2 things- brow liner and eyeliner and I'm out the door. 
When I have a shooting session for my blog however, I like to switch thing up a notch and it's the same routine here. I've tried new things here and there but I just never seem to achieve the look that these make up artists on YouTube get so I stick to what works for me.

Did you ever really realize just how beautifully well red and leopard go together?  Well I have and I must say I'm in love. These 2 very sexy trends just give an extra special touch to any outfit.

Fall with Zuvaa

   Well, well, well. With the sudden chilly nights and early mornings, re-appearance of coats and earlier sunsets, there's no denying that Fall is lingering upon us. This is the point where most of you retire your Ankara pieces until the following summer solstice but I'm here to show you that ankara can actually be worn well into Fall...and if you're brave enough, into Winter as well.
Here are my top 10 picks for Fall from premier ankara retailer,  Zuvaa.com.

 Since the beginning of the month, "September" by Earth, Wind and Fire has been on my mind and on repeat on my laptop. It doesn't hurt that I recently watched the movie Last Vegas for the 2nd time and that song is the first one to play during the credits.

Leather jacket, leather bag...and a tutu??

I love fashion and as I've grown and become more comfortable with my style, I've experimented more with fashion. Before the blog, I would have never thought of wearing a tutu  skirt (I mean, it's not for grown ups right?)

2 Shades of white please

Hey everyone!
I'm not very chatty today but here's an all-white outfit idea for those of you still experience really hot temperatures.
Mind you, this dress is slightly see-through (sadly), so caution had to be taken in regards to under garments but I find the transparency is less in the photos.

Mini getaway

Hey lovelies!
the opportunity presented itself for me to have a mini-local getaway and I couldn't say no! With everything going on in my life right now, it was much needed.
I don't know about you but I just love staying at hotels. I feel different, I sleep amazingly well, I order room service, watch tons of TV and use 3 towels/day! Haha

Coat and beige

Good day folks! Hope your week is going great so far!

I'm quite pleased with the way my photography skills are developing. I have had more time on my hands to play around with lighting, different environments and angles and am able to capture better shots in a shorter period of time! I also have more time to explore Toronto and these pictures were taken during one of my outings. 

Let's Talk: Sosoxy: Express yourself through your socks...+ a giveaway!

Hello my dear readers!
 I hope you're all having a great week thus far and continue to enjoy the blog as much as I enjoy posting!

Today, I'm introducing most of you to something new- the art of expressing yourself through your socks! I know the look you're probably having on your faces is similar to the one I originally had- HUH? Don't worry, I-or rather Mr Kanmi Falade, will explain further.

As soon as my dad saw me in this outfit, he said, "Yeehaw cowgirl!"
Funny enough, when I was putting it together, I didn't even have that in mind! I just felt like protecting myself from the sun with a hat while wearing a crop top and midi skirt!

2 for 1

Well, well, well. Since I like to try and keep things honest here, I have a confession. I had taken photos in these 2 outfits but well, I didn't like the way they turned out! At the time, they seemed fine but then when I uploaded them to my computer, the shoes seemed wrong in one and I didn't like the way my hair turned out in another set, haha! The struggles of blogging right?

Fall, is that you?

I mean sure it still feels like 30 degrees over here (and I am NOT complaining) but I couldn't resist stepping out with Last year's H&M trench coat!

  The long weekend is over and it's such a shame! I spent the weekend with my parents and took my mom to the Canadian National Exhibition (known as The Ex)which is a mix of a theme park, casino, outdoor shows and international vendors. We had such a chill time and enjoyed lots of ice cream-YUM!
