Autumn Yellow 

Hi everyone, sorry this post is coming a bit late but honestly life has been happening , the days have been hectic and the nights have been sleepless thanks to a seven weeks old baby that sleeps during the day  and wants to play and cuddle and suckle at night. My two year old fell ill so had to take her to A and E and you guys, that’s a whole day affair especially on a weekend. 

I am not sure I already told you guys but I started a part time programme in Child care so a lot on my hands right now but blogging is and has always been a passion of mine, it’s my happy place, a reminder of my individuality and not just my role as wife and mom so I will be here week in, week out, I ain’t going nowhere. 

I got this jacket in store from Newlook, I love the colour, it’s a mustard colour, just the perfect coat to brighten my autumn wardrobe. I decided to wear it as a dress here with an OTK Boots. What do yall think? Btw went a size up, I got it in a size 14 so when the temps drops even further, will be great for layering on top chunky knits. 

Do have a lovely Sunday, we hosting some friends today so I am off to the kitchen to cook up a mean storm hehe.

Nailing the Oversized Men’s Blazer Trend

 The Blazer is back lovelies and I ain’t mad. I am so loving this trend, it’s so easy to style , very classic, very grown up, very bossy and so right up my alley. I have worn this lovely checkered one from Hm on an all black pant and tee, but honestly it can be worn in so many other ways, with blue denim, dressed up with heels as I have done here or dressed down with sneaks or loafers. It’s also great for a night out thrown over a sexy slip dress and when it gets colder, could be worn over a thick jumper.

I absolutely love this trend and if you are with me and looking to get yourself one , I would advise to make sure to go a size or two above your usual size, the more oversized and boxy, the better.  Feel free to browse through the men’s section and yes don’t forget the thrift store, I picked up one bomb ass one from there last week and honestly can’t wait to style it on here.

Bump Style 21 – Camo Bumping

Hi everyone, we made it with a post this week yay! Lol. Thanks to this new nude lip gloss from NYX that’s got me in the mood to truss up a bit and attempt to ‘prettify’ my face a bit. I wanted to see what the gloss looked like on me and before I knew what’s up, I had my camera out and had my face beat. Since the face was beat, I figured I might as well dress up as well and take some pics for the blog.  Continue reading Bump Style 21 – Camo Bumping

Bump Style 20 – How to Wear Black in Summer

So how do you wear black in Summer? Or are you one of those who would never be caught dead in Black in Summer? I have always been drawn to black, I didnt even realize it was a thing in fashion, I simply felt that cuter outfits came in black and I remember when a good friend called my attention to it, she told me I looked better in colors and should try wearing more colors as they bring out my natural color better, lol. After that conversation, I started paying more attention to colors and outfits , I digress though.

I also love to embrace colors in Summer but when I opt for black, I look out for breathability, I alway go for fabrics that are airy, show off some skin and preferably  short. This one which by the way was a gift from Monsoon Uk strikes the whole button, it doesn’t get you hot, the lace is so gorgeous and intricate, it comes in white too but I opted for black because can you see how big I am currently? And we all know Black is quite slimming  . So what do you guys think of the look? Continue reading Bump Style 20 – How to Wear Black in Summer

Bump Style 14 – Flower Girl

You guys wont believe this is the first time I am wearing this dress since I bought it last year, I dont know why but in the past, every time I reached for the dress, I would change my mind and end up settling for something else,  recently though, I have found a new love for the dress, I am always reaching for it, I love the flowery prints and the flowy breeziness of the fit. I have styled it with trainers because frankly i’m done with heels (I think?) till the baby comes. Continue reading Bump Style 14 – Flower Girl

 My face has gotten so much rounder and my bump keeps getting bigger and bigger, this picture was taken at sixteen weeks and I am still amazed at how much bigger my bump is at this stage in my second pregnancy compared to my first one.

Lets Talk Pregnancy Cravings!!!

Me  and a couple of my girlfriends are pregnant at the same time although they are weeks ahead of me, so you know whenever we get together, the gist is almost always centred around our pregnancies or kids. The other day we got talking about our various pregnancy cravings and one said hers was ‘Ora’ or ‘Oha’ soup depending on your dialect. This is a special igbo delicacy, full of veggies, stock fish, dry fish and assorted meat, the interesting about her craving is that it must be gotten from a particular shop –  Tasties, hahahaha, her tastebud only wanted Tasties Ora soup and of course poor hubby had to do the pick up whenever the craving came on.  Continue reading Lets Talk Pregnancy Cravings!!!
