“UNUSUAL BASICS”

 

Basics a.k.a “wardrobe essentials” (denim, basic tee / white shirt, flat pumps etc) are the pieces you can easily put together and you are good to go. They can sometimes become boring right? I feel that way sometimes, do you? To ensure my basics don’t become boring, I look for unusual ways to style my basics and today’s look is an example of what I mean.

 

HOW TO PREVENT GREASY HAIR

 

Just like the skin, the scalp produces natural oils that help the hair stay oily.  People with extremely oily skin would understand how annoying it can be for the face to look oily again after a few hours of washing the face.

 

While packing on oil on the hair is one major factor that can make the hair greasy, other factors like hormones and medicines like birth control could cause the hair to be oily.

 

IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING ::: COTTON DRESS & LACE UP WEDGES

 

Impossible was my first thought when I first tried on this cotton dress. I liked it a lot but I thought this mama couldn’t wear this with my boobies hanging out BUT impossible is nothing to me so I worked with it.

 

But honestly, do you not begin to doubt yourself and your God given abilities when you hear the word impossible flying all around the internet, your office, your college or school and in your home from people you love and trust etc. Do you not have some doubt when you hear impossible?

 

 

WORK-LIFE BALANCE :::: SHIFT DRESS & SNEAKERS

 

Finding a work-life balance as a parent especially as a mum is one of the things I put on the top of my priorities.  I work hard just like so many other amazing working women and mums from all around the world and believe me, I am not afraid to play hard and harder if I have to.

 

On a play day, I look for an outfit that embodies style, fun and playfulness. And today’s look is just it.

OLDIE BUT GOODIE ::: FADED KHAKI & ROSE DETAIL TEE

 

 

Today, I shopped my entire look from my closet! Have you ever opened up your closet to pick out what to wear and the only pieces you reach for are your favourite old things? My look today was styled with all things oldie but goodie; I mean from the faded khaki pants to the basic tee to the shoes and bag and to the necklace. Every thing is old but in today’s look, I made them all new; that is what it means to shop from your own wardrobe.

 

EMBRACE YOUR SEASON ::: ANKARA MAXI & TIE NECK BLOUSE

 

 

I do miss home because of the very many times I could wear the colourful Ankara print and the ever so sunny weather. Once the weather warms up around here, I look for every reason to wear the print and today’s look is no exception.

 

In case you are wondering where is home, I was born and raised in Lagos-Nigeria where the sun is like the second skin. I now live in Ireland with my husband and kids.

BLOGGING MISTAKES I COULD HAVE AVOIDED (part 2) ::: NOT ASKING

We all know if we type in any queries into Google, we would find answers, correct right?
