Purple Skater

Over the weekend I had the privilege of attending a Nigerian Fundraising Banquet. This event was called I CELEBRATE MY SISTER  in recognition of the strength of mothers, sisters and daughters as pillars of the Nigerian community in Leeds. This even is marked annually with a unique and joyous inimitable celebration event, which I must say went really well and it being my first time attending one, I absolutely had a fantastic time.
 " But am yet to attend a Nigerian Wedding, maybe its due to the Naija(Nigerian) movies I watch from time to time."
Anyway, before I go on a tangent, I was really stuck on what to wear for this occasion...Basically I just wanted something new to be honest and knowing that it was a Nigerian themed occasion, an ankara outfit befits it. Therefore I hit the market in search of ankara/chitenge fabric. Initially, Boo was not for the color but I love the colour purple so yes I got a purple one.Choosing a design for this was not as easy as I thought it would be only because I kept on changing my mind. However, due to the love I have for skater skirts and dresses I decided to choose a skater dress pattern and the tailor did a brilliant job I must say and I did get quite a few compliments which totally put a smile on my face.  

The food was amazing from the likes of Jellof rice, egusi soup, okra soup, pepper soup, kpoff poff( vitumbuwa i.e in Nyanja), pounded yam the list is endless. Last but not the least the music aaaah!!! Naija people don tire, we danced all night even got tired of dancing. I love Nigerian music. 


BLOOMING Marvelous

Wake up and smell the rose, tulips, daffodils. Whether you're into the English Garden variety or exotic hothouse blooms, florals are the prints that will always leave you feeling - and looking - vibrant and beautiful. I spotted some floral pants in H&M on sale a month ago and thought to myself why not, for only £7. I normally just own regular jeans mostly the standard blue jeans and these pants definitely add vibrancy to my wardrobe.

May Bank Holiday weekend was amazing, I visited Harrogate  which is not too far from Leeds, went for a BBQ. The weather was amazing literally hot, tops of 18 degrees. Trust me when we hit such double figures its to die for. (The reason why I always rant about the weather is because I lived most of my life in a hot climate country and having to move here due to circumstances, really still not used to it, so just skip the weather part..) Anyway, so we spent our day in Harrogate and I must say I loved it there, though I wouldn't want to move there.

 Then the next day I met up with a few of my friends and went to Yates just to chill and this is what I wore. I opt for a girly chilled look and didn't really do much with accessories but I wanted to be free and relaxed.
