Summer Uniform

We have been blessed with a very early summer here and I couldn’t be happier, this week for example, they said we were gonna have lots of rain and thunderstorm but the sun has been coming through and doing her thing although it rained cats and dogs on Tuesday and me and the girls were stuck in it for some good minutes. I don’t mind the rain when I am indoor, warm and cosy, a cup of tea and netflix to go, okay not netflix, more like youtube to go, I love watching youtube videos especially vlogs, hauls, makeup videos, routines a whole lot haha.

It’s also half term break here which is probably why I had the time to take this outfit photo yesterday and put them up today. I bought this Kimono recently from Boohoo, check out my haul video below and OMG! You guys, I am absolutely in love with it, it’s very lightweight and floaty and just the perfect throw on over tank tops and dresses, something I very much intend to live in this summer . I especially love the idea of this long floaty Kimono on denim cutoff and a tank top, I think its super stylish, very effortlessly chic which is my vibe always. Whats your summer go to outfit?

Get ahead of the fashion pack and grab yourself a shorts pants suit right now, this trend is going to be big for summer, it’s very flattering on all sizes and shapes, pair with a trainer, sandals or brogues for that  IT fashion girl look.

Not Good Enough

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.

Birthday Vibes

 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

How to nail the floral trend for ss 18

Pair up

Thinking of how to wear floral without looking comical? I spotted this look on vogue.com and fell in love immediately, I am already in spring mode in my head even though the temps have dropped like crazy here in London, what can I say, maybe if I wish harder, the universe will listen and give me back the sun, ya ya I know the sun will come back eventually, I just need it back sooner than later.

Alright babes, back to this look, first off, I love the fact that the floral colours are dark because it instantly

1. makes you look slimmer

2. Makes it less overbearing to pull off.

3. Love the mix of pink, it softens and lends a feminine touch to the whole look

The styling with a plain white tee ties the whole look together, it keeps it simple, daytime, playful, you could also swap the white tee for black, green, pink or any of the colours on the print and finally, note that this is a co-ord, a suit actually and we all know suits can be very serious and proper, love the styling with the pink trainers, it made it casual, fun and girly, perfect for day-to-day running around and bossing up. Of Course you could swap the pink for white and still look as chic. What do you think of this trend? Snatched or Shake off?

Consistency is KEY

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!

Is Self Love The New Synonym For Obesity?

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 girl

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

As Classic as a Polkadot

Polka dots are one of those styles that will always be trendy, it never goes out of style, season after season, its a classic. As usual, I was casually browsing/window shopping at HM when I spotted this dress, I knew I had to get it, it was also discounted, I got it for half the price. I think the discount was the tipping point, it was originally £35 but I ended up paying £17.50 for it, YAASSS! I am such a bargain head I swear. Continue reading As Classic as a Polkadot
