I just took some pictures for a Lookbook series I would publish next week *yaaay*. Can’t wait to
start working on the shots.
Two friends of mine just left the UK after spending their holidays with me.
Its quite annoying how I feel very alright before anyone comes here for a long visit but immediately they leave I feel quite alone for the next 24/48hours. Ugh, I’d be good anyways.
How is lent going (for those that practice)??
Some suggestions I saw in my church’s bulletin last Sunday;
– Weekday Early Morning Mass attendance
– Eucharistic Adoration attendance
– Stations of the Cross attendance (usually Wednesdays and Fridays)
– Abstaining from alcoholic drinks, smoking or some form of amusement
– Making Special effort to be involved in family prayer, taking part in mass, visiting the blessed sacrament or praying the Stations of the Cross
– Fasting from all food for a longer period than usual and perhaps giving what is saved in this way to the needy at home and abroad
– Making a special effort to help somebody who is poor, sick old or lonely.
I thought that was really apt and worth sharing..

That’s it from this cute and gorgeous lady, Priya, thank you so much for your time hon.
Last weekend, I dragged my friend Funmi to Karl Lagerfeld’s new store at Regeant Street..
Quick cheeky selfie for the road.. Lol. Also dropped a message on their e-guest book for Karl. Lol.
Okay guys, a quick stop at the Andrea Iyamah’s 2014 Swim Collection.
Andrea Iyamah is a Nigerian label based in Canada. The lady behind the brand is extremely innovative and creative. I love all her campaign videos for every new collection. You would also see from the pictures below are quirky and sexy her cuts are.
By the way, Draya (from the tv show, BasketBall Wives LA) debuted her Mint Swim’s 2nd collection pictures and you wouldn’t believe how similar they were to AI’s. People and blogs speculated and talked about inspiration and how smaller brands get inspired bla bla bla, but in my opinion, it was a total rip off. I love Draya and all oh but nah.. Andrea Iyamah is still a relatively young brand, you don’t just rip off without any form of acknowledgement. This is what frustrates your and creative minds, I really detest !
Breathtaking isn’t it? Has this Caribbean/Island feel about with. The stylist did a perfectly beautiful job. I love love the use of colour in this collection and of course the cuts and sexiness of her pieces.
Click here to preorder any of these. Items would be dispatched May 30, you could mail their customer services for more specific fit for your body.
Another awesome thing about the site is that the bottoms and tops (though priced together) are sold differently size wise. So you could get a small top and a large bottom. Lovely ! Get your life guys.
Do have a lovely week y’all..
