I had a chilled out and lovely weekend, hope you did too or at least had more fun. My favourite female housemate in the Big Brother Africa house, Tanzania’s Feza survived eviction, I did a bit of shopping for… (would keep you posted on that soon), and yes, I am psyched and pumped for the week.
Our feature today is a working lady who decided to take time off and for a staycation. I didn’t even know that was a real word till recently. It basically refers to a period where one decides to stay off work and generally do the kind of recreative and leisure stuff you would ordinarily do during a vacation, but within driving distance to your home.
Occupation: Wireline Engineer for Halliburton
Interests: Traveling and Reading epic novels.
Top: Forever 21
Bag: Michael Kors
Style – Seasonal Black
Inspiration – Me Myself and I. Today was day 1 of my staycation so I decided to have some me-time (for just a few hours though), motherhood has no break period you know. Anyway, yes I was simply inspired by that.
Shoes: Steve Madden
Style – Sophisticated
Inspiration – Walking. Today was so beautiful. I took a long walk with my lovely husband all evening. All chilled out, talking, laughing, eating and all that good stuff.
Style – Chilled
Inspiration – Little bossman. My day did not start till I went to pick up my son from his nursery. I was inspired my his white/black outfit so I did same but added green. Lol.
Jacket: Bar III
Style – Funky Chic
Inspiration – Same as yesterday, my son. His pants inspired my jacket (matching, lol), his boogie and jacket inspired my scarf.
Inspiration – Editorials. So today I decided to recreate a look I have seen quite a number of times but in my own way.
Shoes: Banana Republic
Style – Chic
Inspiration – In anticipation of my new home. So I am moving houses and cities and was just looking at pictures of our new house before I dressed up today.
This is my last look for my feature and I want to thank my husband immensely for all these pictures. 🙂

Before I sign out for the week, I want to share something.
Yesterday evening I Beyonce posted this picture on her instagram of her and I was like BAM! She definitely looks at my page. Like..
I mean, we both bared our midriffs, both of us are wearing 2-piece clothing, both midi skirts, both in shades, I mean, all ‘hateration’ asides guys, there’s something here. Well, with siblings, such happens. Guess what again self? Both our outfits are Topshop!!!
By the way, my picture was taken 4 weeks ago (with the caption “Bow Down B*tches, from a Bey song), you can check my instagram (@JauneLion) to confirm. *Phew* just thought to keep y’all abreast anyway. Also, our feature this week, Nkechi is a huge Bey stan so yes, its all damn apt.
