It's really happening...

I'm referring to the winter solstice! Tomorrow, the clocks go back by 1 hour, today I went out and looked at my watch, thinking it was 8pm, only to realize that it was only 6pm! Ugh!
Winter solstice for me  usually means:
 -5-10 extra pounds
-coming home earlier
-going out less

Fall 2014 mini haul

Hello lovelies!

I hope your week is going great but if not, hopefully my video can cheer you up!

I decided to show some of my most recent acquisitions, gearing up for Fall/Winter 2014. 
I haven't done shopping in a while and to be honest, most of these were purchased/ acquired a few weeks ago BUT they're still relevant and pretty new, lol.

Without further ado...

Me and my Ankara accessories

When it comes to accessories, I recycle for years and years because I usually purchase versatile pieces that can be worn year round and with tons of outfits.
All my accessories fit in a plastic bag that gets cleaned out perhaps twice a year.

Double slit maxi top

Sometimes I try trends, just for fun and this outfit was one of those instances.
I had owned a double slit maxi skirt once upon a time but got rid of it because it was a little bit much for me. A double slit maxi top however can be worn with pants or leggings underneath and make you feel and look like a female Morpeheus!

Sometimes black & white

For some reason, as the temperatures drop, my color palette becomes less variable and I find myself drawn to black, white , grey, dark green and maroon. Recently, I've been very much into black and white-weird coming from me right? I know! 

Updates on my injury and recent health scare

Hello my lovelies!
Before doing another outfit post, I thought it would briefly keep you abreast with my current health situation and a glimpse into what exactly went wrong and caused my injury.
I am tremendously grateful for all the well-wishes and can't thank you enough!

Hope you enjoy the video,

Does anyone really know what time it is?

I won't even lie. The focus of this post is this clutch. It was love at first sight for me when I saw this clutch and once the opportunity arose to get it, I jumped on it! lol
I love that it's quirky yet elegant at the same time and is very different from any other clutch out there!

Road to recovery

Guess who's back???!!!

I can't remember the last time I went so long without blogging! I feel like a bad mother or something! Haha

Well, before I go back to posting outfit posts, I at least wanted to drop by and say I'm alive and extremely grateful to all my followers who sent me well wishes during my time away.

Fall meets Ankara at the distillery district

I. can't. seem. to. be. able. to. give. up. on. ankara.

"Every time I try to leave something keeps pulling me back."

I am so so grateful to all the African designers who send ankara my way. I have enough in my closet that I could probably wear a different outfit everyday for a month-and I am definitely NOT complaining.

Seeing Red

I've been such an insomniac lately. I go to bed super super late (4am) and wake up by 10am... 
I've always been nocturnal but I feel like it's gotten worse. I always tel myself, "Tonight is the night I go to bed earlier" but nope, 3 TV shows later, I'm still glued to my couch. Anyone have any recipe/remedy I could try?

Don't you worry child

Don't worry, everything will work out fine.
Don't worry, everything always works for the greater good.
Worrying today about tomorrow  doesn't solve tomorrow's problems; it rids today of its potential.
Don't worry, Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Don't worry, don't you worry child.

No spanx, all woman.

I have to admit, I still blush awkwardly whenever people say "OMG I love your body" or "How did you get that body" and it still makes me all mushy. Sometimes I wonder, "are they talking to me?" You don't understand, my body never used to be envious. I've mentioned it several times on the blog but once a fat girl, always a fat girl.

Looking for Caro

"Caro your body necessary. Necessary...
"Looking for Caro." "Show me Caro.| See see Caro." "Where are you Caro?"

I'm sure most of my fellow Africans (and probably all Nigerian followers) know exactly which song those lyrics belong to, haha. 
The moment I laid eyes on thei t-shirt, I knew it had to be mine one day. When I was ready to purchase it a few weeks ago, it was sold out. Like a true shopaholic, I kept it in the back of my mind and knew I would try again in a few weeks and am I glad I did!

Breyonce is my alter ego...just like Sasha fierce is to Beyonce...*in my head*

Happy Friday folks!! I hope your weekend is restful and happy and free!
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Tehilah Designs and my favorite pieces were definitely the floor-length gowns!For as long as I can wear a body-con dress without spanx, I'm going to make the most of it! Lol

Check in- All moved in!

Hey everyone, 
Just a quick drop by to say I'm so happy to have finally moved out of my old apartment and all settled into my new place! Whoop whoop! It was so stressful and I am so grateful that my brothers helped me out.
