Fashion blogging has definitely gone beyond just wearing a dress and taking pics, there is a lot that goes into it now, while the clothe is still important, you now have to worry about picture quality, getting a professional camera, cutesy location, breath taking poses, just so much. The competition out there is insane and it’s hard not to get sunk in and feel like you ain’t good enough. I love fashion and love blogging but I am a bloody broke ass right now. I shop cheap and wear them well. The styling isn’t a problem for me. I wish I could afford a photographer or have a blogger mate, so we could meet up in cool locations and take some bomb ass photos, that would be sooo cool. This one was taken in my backyard by myself and I know its just not good enough. I imagine this dress in a lovely location, maybe a cool bar, or a florist shop with all the colors bursting through. Essentially an amazing background, great lightning, these are the kind of content I want to create but cant afford to right now so I make do with these ones in the mean time. If you are reading this post and you live in South East London and need a blogger mate to meet up and shoot outfits in cool locations, lets hook up, give me a shout via dm – Insta (@nelOsuji) or email.

It was my birthday on Sunday May 6, it couldn’t have picked a more perfect day to fall on. It was a bank holiday weekend. I woke up in the morning , reminded my girl it was my birthday and she sang me the most beautiful happy birthday song ever. My heart nearly combusted with love. I got some on camera and hopefully my birthday vlog should be up by tomorrow, do check out my youtube channel here. The hubby got me a charm bracelet, sang me some more birthday song, I somehow lost the footage on that or thought I was recording it but didn’t. There wasn’t any elaborate celebration just a cozy time with family, my hubby, two girls, my bro in law, his son and a friend. It was simply the best day, we drank, we ate and we talked a lot about Nigeria, Religion, Culture, raising children and so many other randoms. Continue reading Birthday Vibes
Hi everyone, I feel like the world’s worst fashion blogger right now, my views have plummeted and I know its all my fault. Consistency is really the key to nailing this blogging thing you know, forget everything you have read, it doesn’t matter how fabulous your style is, if you are not consistent, your views go down.
Aint nobody got time to be checking for you if you are not checking for yourself. It’s that simple, I have had this look sitting there for a while but have just been too lazy/busy to post it. I think Instagram is also to blame for the slow posts you know, these days, once the pic is taken, one is quick to post one or two on Insta and then get too lazy to post it on the blog but I am going to try and change and hopefully I get you all to come back. I am going to challenge myself to post once a day for seven days, starting today actually. I swear this is so on the spot. I literally came up with this idea right now. Gosh am I crazy or what? But guess? I am going to see it through. So yeah lets do this. I have so many post Ideas I have been sleeping on hopefully this challenge gets me to sit up and DO.
Now how have you all been? Wore this outfit two weeks ago when the weather was so hot and good, this week we have gone back to Winter, its so cold right now, I am literally depressed. I can’t even understand this crazy weather. Anyhoo we still going to get up and get shit done. Have a love week fam and don’t forget you can do anything you set your hearts on, you are the boss! Continue reading Consistency is KEY
According to a recent report, one in four British adult is obese, this is definitely alarming. What may be the cause of this, one is forced to wonder, at least I am. I have also noticed that this year more than ever, self-love is quite a thing but I fear that as with things when they trend, they get abused and I have started to see that happening already. Continue reading Is Self Love The New Synonym For Obesity?
Double denim aka Canadian suit is one of those styles that will never go out of style, its a classic, you can dress it up or down, sex it up or make it preppy. Its suits all ages – both young and old, can be adapted in variety of ways. I recently got this skirt from Primark, I have a video on my recent primark haul here but you know what I am going to do a primark haul post too for those of you who do not have the patience or the data to watch videos.
For spring, its still a bit chilly here, I styled the skirt with a tank and an oversized denim jacket, my hubby’s jacket actually, seriously the easiest and best way to get the perfect oversized jacket is to raid the men’s section, the quality is usually better too. I am still about that cinched waist life as you may have seen from my latest posts here so I grabbed this big ass belt I am wearing for the first time since I bought it last year.
Another reason I love denim so much is its non discriminatory style, this banger goes with everything but for this look I have opted tanned boots and finished it off with this lil cute glasses I got off ebay. I hope you guys love the look, I apologize for the silence on the blog, I have been swamped with school work and mum life but its the holiday now and I hope to do better. Happy Easter holiday fam, see you all soonest xx. Continue reading Double Denim girl
Before I talk about styling dress over pant, its women’s week this week and I want to shout out and big up all the women out here today bossing it, setting their own trail and blazing it in spite of and against all the odds. It’s a man’s world, it doesn’t matter how you spin it. I am super thankful for the women who stood up and challenged status quo, who refused to conform, who sacrificed and fought so we can enjoy the privileges we enjoy today. I am thankful for the every day woman, working her ass off, hustling , making ends meet, you all inspire me. Continue reading How to Style Dress over Pant
Its fashion week right now, New York, Milan and London has come and gone and right now the buzz is at Paris. I haven’t been catching up with this year’s fashion week scene unfortunately, I have just been so busy lately. I have caught some glimpse here and there on Instagram though. I hope to catch up when I can.
I didn’t get to attend any but this outfit right here reminds me of street style fashion. It’s something that I would definitely go for if I was to attend, its showy without being peacocky, its trendy but classic. The beret lends it its trendy air and the trench keeps it classic. Continue reading Street Style
I have just put the kids to bed, I am exhausted, its been such a long day, this is my TGIF. I am yet to have my bath, I have this blog post to put up. I just want to drink my ice cold Cider beer, a new craving of mine, the hubby bought a carton of cider beer the other day, I had a taste and I have been hooked since, I love the peer and tangy taste. I digress though, I just want to curl up in my PJ, drink my beer, watch some youtube videos and head to bed sometimes I wish I had a magic wand that I would wave to get my body washed up, moisturized and all while I sit down and do nothing. Continue reading Never Enough Time
