The compliments kept coming during this shoot and my strides became longer, bolder, more confident like a Lagos London commercial flight full of people who knew what they wanted in life, the opportunity to spend money and boost the UK economy. "Red is definitely your colour" "You look so good in red" "You look like you are going somewhere, please take me there" I allowed these kind words bathe my mind and hours later found myself on the oasis of online fashion (Asos) with my search results looking like.... My new mantra RED = PAWA. Since this post coincides with the American mothers day, I am going to make this post about working mothers who many times are running a business too. You need to wear red every damn day with a Cape that says "SUPERMAN WHO?" (Can he even multi task ?) Mother's, you are awesome You are ENOUGH! You are doing a GOOD JOB! You are STRONG You are ABLE You are a WARRIOR Please take out time to appreciate yourself daily. Buy yourself a gift and pat yourself on the back because mama, you are magical.

Happy Monday guys. This week I am full of hope and aspirations. I have done my "to do" list for the week, my haka dance has been completed (in private) and I am good to go. Before I get into the ootd, I will like to give you the gist of how I embarrassed myself at the gym last week ?. Here we go. I got back from school run one faithful morning and decided to go straight to the gym. While wrestling with the decision of what point to take off my wig through out the entire trip, I decided I will do it slyly in the car once I park up at the gym just to avoid changing room palaver. So that's what I did. Took it off so fast that superman himself with his laser vision wouldn't have noticed. Put on my sunglasses and bounced into the gym. I was feeling good, about to get my workout on, murder some fat cells, pump some iron. So my routine began: Stair climber - 15 minutes, lateral ski master - 20 minutes and then to the floor exercise, I was about to flex muscles and show them who is boss. Half way through my routine I catch some stares but I am all good, I can deadlift 60kg don’t y’all worry about my slender self ?, slim fit init ?. I am strolling past the muscle mirror when was forced to take a double look, I almost fainted!!!! body and spirit collapsed in perfect sync ?. Father take control of this situation. Ladies and gentlemen my wig cap was still on my head the whole damn time, I cried out to the Lord, whyyyyyyy!!!! Why do bad things happen to good pipo ?. I was mortified, to everyone else I was wearing tights on my head like a crazy person. I was crazy and they knew it guys. So damage control mode activated after some hot tears of humiliation and cries of anguish. What do I do now, do I take it off before more people see me or do I style it out? Style it out it was because Warri cannot what? carry last. So I got me some kettle bells, took my wig cap off, wore it on my palm and started lifting the kettle bells. Wig cap turned kettle bells gloves ?, dass how we roll up in hurr. That was my story y'all. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper, my village pipo did not win this one. Now that you have all laughed at my expense and I have entertained you this Monday morning. Let me say a thing or two about my outfit. White shirt: FREE, stolen from my husbands closet. Trust me to take the most expensive crisp one. This is mine now, he has about one million of these so boy bye ?. Distressed jeans shorts: Primark £12 I have loved these knee length jeans since I saw them on Kim K. My baby boy needs no introductions *flicks hair* That's all from me guys. Until next time.
I have featured a few of Ms edivine designs recently on instagram and to be honest I love every piece that was sent to me. Easy to wear ankara pieces that just speak to my print soul. This dress is my absolute favourite availabke in two colours. Check out the website www.msedivine.com for more designs from this amazing brand. This easy to wear dress is amazing and can be dressed up or down. I wore this to a friends birthday, I didn't want to look super dressy but wanted to look good too (you know how we do ?). Next time I will tell you of the most embarrassing thing that happened to me last week. Oh gash. Until next time buttercups.
So at the weekend I went to Bruno Mars concert by myself, all together now... *awwwww * ?. I'll tell you the story. When these tickets became available for sale a few months ago, I missed out and before I knew it all the tickets had gone. I was devastated, I love Bruno Mars. Fast forward one day before the concert, I found some tickets and this ministered to my spirit, it was meant to be so I decided I was going. I called a few friends and no one wanted to come at such short notice so do you know what I did? I got me, myself and I VIP tickets and went just like that. I thought to myself, what would you regret the most 1. Going to one of the favourite artist's concert on your own or 2. Missing out all together You guessed it, I wasn't going to miss out so I asked my own damn self on a date and you know what? I accepted the date. It felt good because I tell you something now, this was the second best concert I have ever been after the Queen B of course. Bruno gave us a show to remember. The production was amazing and still had that jazz club live band feel to it. Here is why I had an amazing time with myself 1. We grabbed something to eat before the show and we didn't argue about where to go or what to have, it was like we were in perfect sync ? 2. We got ID'ed at the bar twice! That's how young and youthful we looked *flicks hair* 3. When Bruno sang "Treasure" we serenaded each other 4. We sang Bruno songs while skipping home holding hands ? It was fun to say the least. Try it next time, take your bougie self on a date and see how you like it. Outfit deets Denim Jacket: Missguided Striped trousers: River Island Earrings HnM (old) Shoes: Newlook
...every piece of clothing worn on my top half are from the men's section of Forever 21 ? (don't shoot me). I would have accepted anything that said "mens shirts" or "oversize shirts". I apologise, I know this an emotional time for you ? but hear me out. Do you ever see brands who cater for both men and women's fashion shamelessly give men more discounts than us ladies? Yes, this still happening in the 21st century, disgusting behaviour I know, HILL-DIOTS ??. On this faithful day I walk into Forever 21 and there was a mini sale going on in the men's section (non for the ladies may I add). I got five items for about £40. You know when Pslam 23 said "thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies", this was the exact scenario when strolled to the counter to pay for my items with the biggest smirk on my face. You pipo don't want me to be great, what am I going to be? You guessed it, GREAT ?. Outfit number 1 I knew I wanted to pair these looks with a feminine touch and what is more feminine than lace. I liked this shirt particularly because it is something you can just wear and go, it is versatile and can be worn with jeans or worn to work even. Deets: Forever 21 striped shirt, boohoo dress now in sale, Zara pumps, moschino bag. Outfit number 2 This khaki shirt is another easy to wear shirt. I had this lace skirt in mind when I purchased the shirt. Layering and a touch of pink softened the look. Deets: khaki shirt (sold out), skirt (old), shoes newlook, bag gift (I will post a link soon), bangles a combo of primark and mango. Outfit number 3 For those who haven't thrown their phones at the TV ??. This varsity shirt is my favourite. If you know of my tomboy style, you will understand why I love it. Mustard seems to be my fav colour too these days. Deets: Forever 21 Vibes mustard tee, zara skirt (old), shoes dune (old). Moral of the story, don't be scurred of the men's department, when they have a sale, celebrate with their ass ?. Second lesson, I am the Queen of riddles ?. Love you guys and thanks for participating. Until next time buttercups.
