Living in Lagos has some craziness attached to it; one of such is the unrepentant traffic situation which all Lagosians have come to live with. But the craziest has got to be the many characters of lunatic drivers - you'll see a drunk driver sleeping on the steering; some others try to do some "007" or "Fast & Furious" moves in a tight and narrow road. Omo... these people can drive you crazy that you'll be wondering if you still have your sanity intact.

I felt a different love for Nigeria after I left its shores; then I wondered why we all yearned to leave the borders; some say it’s the search for greener pastures. I’m of the opinion that the grass is green where you water it and if there’s a God, then your success is not tied to one specific location. Even if you’re dropped in a desert, you will still flourish as long as you know your GOD.
Daniel 11:32 – But the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.
In July 2013, I started thinking of relocating back home and everyone I mentioned it to looked at me in that ‘are you crazy’ kind of way. I come dey wonder, is it not the same Nigeria that has produced folks like Alakija, Jason Njoku, abi na two heads dem get? I was confused oh. I remember when I left; my dad was worried that I resigned from my job without study leave or hope of employment afterwards. Fast forward, 4 years later

Hey sweeties.... I know I have been seriously MIA on blogging these days and I refuse to give an excuse for that. I could blame it on work or the crazy traffic in Lagos but the truth is whatever is important to you, you MUST find time to do no matter how swamped you are. So this is me creating time to share what I wore on Sunday (not to church)... just regular outing.

Sometimes people make mistakes before they learn; most people due to ignorance and some others deliberately chose to walk into the problems despite warning signals. I'm guessing you're not one of the ignorant folks because I'm about to let you in on the most innovativetechnology that will blow your mind.

Happy Sunday Lovelies....
It's been a very looooooong time I blogged, but I'm going to bounce back gradually - slowly but surely. Hope you all had an amazing week and a super service today. So I thought to share my outfit of the day here so those not following on social media can also get a glimpse.

FONDthat Pastries is your one-stop shop for yummy and delicious cakes, cupcake, muffins, chin-chin and other desserts; at affordable prices. Founded by the beautiful Amara .J. Ndukwe, a young and vibrant woman who pursued her childhood dreams of owning a bakery, even after a Masters Degree in Engineering Management from Coventry University. She speaks to Lynnille about her love for baking.
Growing up, my dream career was to own my own bakery. I made chin chin for home use and baked my first cake at home in '99 (in my junior high) with a sand oven, which came out amazing. My love for food grew rapidly and though it lingered on my mind, never explored until after my Masters degree. During this time I felt so much regret for not pursing this passion early enough

The dramatic shift in fashion means our styling has to keep evolving with time as new trends emerge. Therefore, in order to be unique and different with your style, you have to be innovative when pairing your outfits. One of the recent trends is the animal print and the most common is the leopard print which has warmed its way into our closet in the form of handbags, scarf, shoe, sandals, trouser, jewellery, belt, nails, tops, dress etc. Almost every fashion item has a leopard prints design such that it is very rare not to have one piece of this print in your closet; hence the need to be creative when pairing it with other outfits.
I can never really explain my love for leopard prints; I think I have almost every accessory in leopard print. So here are some creative ways you can wear leopard prints and look absolutely gorgeous.

Fashion evolves and revolves with time and of recent, ladies have ditched the ball gowns and flowing dresses for a sexier look in a tuxedo. There's something about a lady in a tux - the radiance and charisma is just on a different level. Whatever the occasion, when a lady appears in a tux, she always makes a style statement.
Beautiful actress, Keke Palmer looked fabulous in a navy blue tuxedo with a plunging V-neckline at Debra Lee's BET Awards pre-dinner. She styled her looks with a simple gold earring, black pointy shoes and a black clutch bag; I love the simplicity of her total ensemble, which she completed with a dazzling smile.

Hey lovelies, happy weekend, sure you are all having a great Saturday.
After the stress of looking for what to wear for to work, most people just don't bother about the weekend. But this is one of the days to play around with fashion because you get to hang out with friends and go on casual outings. So I put together a simple casual look for the stylish woman who wants to stand out in a crowd over the weekend. This look is simple, edgy but yet classy inspired British R & B singer Frankie Sandford.

Hey lovelies, HAPPY NEW MONTH OF JUNE. How was your weekend? Hope you had fun. Last week I was contacted by Kendra Thornton to participate in a fashion challenge. I'll tell you about her briefly..
Kendra is a travel expert and TV personality who appears on TV channels like ABS, CBS, NBC, CW, Fox News and other shows like Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus. She is heading to New York City in a few weeks with a group of friends and has asked me to help her put together the wardrobe that will complement her travel plans. So here's the challenge she sent to me:
It has been so much fun planning this trip and picking all the exciting things to do and places to visit. However, I am a little concerned with what to wear. Everyone knows that New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, and I want to stand out for my great outfits not my lack of fashion sense. As a mom with 3 children, I have not always kept with the latest trends. I am hoping with the new Kendra Fashion Challenge I will get some expert help that will leave me looking and feeling my best even in one of New York Cities top hotels, The Standard High Line.
