Screen Shot 2014-01-31 at 9.56.26 PM

It is the first day of the month of February and can’t you just smell love in the air already? February is what I would call ‘the lovers month’. Its the season to fall in love, to give love, to show you care for your loved ones, the less privileged ones or even yourself. I’ve already started hearing all kinds of jokes about how some people will find out that they are not their boo’s boo (LMAO) and  I guess it just the typical Nigerian reflex to make jokes about every and any thing. Anyway, I’m really excited to see what

To get straight to the most interesting part, on Valentine’s day, most people express their love through giving and most girls with boos and without boos will be expecting a romantic or thoughtful gift from their loved ones, I just wanted to help make your life easy with this Valentine’s day gift idea for us, fabulous females! From statement shoes that are absolute sex on legs to red roses and scented candles, I think there is something for every kind of girl here.

Hey dolls!

First off, Happy New Year my fabulous ones! I know it’s been long and I’m kind of late on that but that only shows how much I’ve been enjoying my christmas holiday.I am so gassed for this year and trust that I have my new year resolutions listed and as much as I would want to share them with you, we wouldn’t want to jinx it right?

There are times when i just share a bit of what I’ve been up to and show pictures as well. So I just took some pictures today to show what my day was like. It was basically a run around kind of day, trying to get a few things together. Some interesting places that we stopped by are Liam fashion agency which is a high end boutique in Dolphin estate and an amazing barbeque spot in lekki called 3 cousins and a crook.

I would also love to know what you all have been up to. Feel free to drop a comment! Here are the moments captured and the details for my outfit is after the pictures. Enjoy!…xxx

One thing I really liked about this spot was the fact that their walls were filled with reviews and well wishes from people who had tasted their food. I really loved their fries, barbeque chicken and sausages. Amazing food I tell you! Peep my writing on the lights…of course I had to leave a review **wink**
