CONTENTED... BUT NOT COMPLACENT




Gazing into the skies, I was somewhat perturbed by the fact that July had come - meaning it was the second half of 2014 and I was yet to accomplish some of my goals for the year. I felt restless, bitter and unaccomplished; not wanting to wallow in self-pity, I decided to take a walk round the estate. Before I left the house, one of my friends sensed that I wasn't in my usual high spirit and asked why, I couldn't hold back so I told her how I felt.  With a big smile on her face, she looked at me and said, “trust me, you have every cause to be happy, if you feel this way, then I should feel worse since I’m older than you”. I walked away to have my estate tour but her words resounded in my head like a loud gong.

HOW TO WEAR A PENCIL SKIRT



One of the fashion items every lady should have in her wardrobe is a pencil skirt, it compliments a woman’s figure and gives her the appearance of height with a flashy elegance that shows class and sass. The power woman must have at least one pencil skirt in her collection especially for those who work in corporate offices. When you work in a bank, you’re mostly stereotyped by dress codes and all what not which is why I love Fridays because I get to wear prints and florals which are not allowed from Monday to Thursday.

So yesterday, I wore a Zara scarf print shirt and a navy blue stretch pencil skirt, finished off with Dorothy Perkins nude shoes and accessorized with simple gold earrings. The choice of a nude shoe is because nude is the new black, it compliments every outfit and

Sunday Style with MANGO & Jumia Fashion


Hi lovelies....Happy Sunday

So as is my habit every Saturday to turn my room upside down, I was at it again last Saturday searching for what to wear to church and after much tussle with my wardrobe I finally got rid of the indecision and chose this lovely suit dress from MNG by Mango. I bought the dress in July 2014 and since I tried it in the fitting room, today was the first day I wore it. It was one of those outfits you spot on the rack and just know it'll be a perfect fit. You won't believe how much the dress cost... full proof that you don't have to spend too much to look good. The glamour is not really about the outfit but more about the person wearing the outfit and the body the outfit is worn on.

Guest Post: AGONY OF A CITIZEN by CHI-CHI OMEREKPE

What is happening? I don’t know what this country is turning out to be. Human beings die every day like animals and still people have the guts to say they want change from where an atom of change cannot come from. Truth is I am tired of this country, if migrating is possible I will not hesitate at all. But looking on the other side, one will not run away from his /her country because of fellow citizens. Then here comes the big question, WHO WILL REDEEM THIS COUNTRY?

To me, I think this a ‘rhetorical question’.  I’m not trying to take sides with any political party as the craze of this is also ruining my peace (social media is not helping matters). I will start with the current government headed by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. From my point of view, this government has done more good than harm in our various sectors. Many will crucify me for this statement, but let us all remember the saying that ‘the devil you know is better than the angel you never knew’.

THE DAY LAGOS DRIVERS TAUGHT ME HOW TO SWEAR


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.

MOVING BACK TO NIGERIA - The Uncertainties & What Happened Afterwards

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

FIERCE AND FABULOUS


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.

Yummy & Delicious Pastries from FONDthat PASTRIES

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
