Lately, I have being wearing sneakers a lot. Why you may ask? I am currently recovering from an “injury” on my knee and secondly, they are very much on trend these days which makes it easier for me to rock with most of the looks I create. In this day to night look HERE, I…
In this video I did on 7 items to have in your closet for spring, I mentioned that I do not have a lovely Spring / Summer coat. I also said in the video that I do not have one because I haven’t found the one that fits well. Now, I have found one and in today’s post, I present to you my brand new trench coat 🙂
The first time I did a denim look book, I styled one denim in 5 ways, you can see that post HERE. In that post, I shared helpful TIPS on how to maximise your closet. The second time I did another denim look book, I styled another favourite of my denim in 3 ways, you can see that post HERE. Today, I bring you another denim look book I like to call 5 times I made denim look chic. Hope you are inspired.
Last Saturday, I went to hang out with YouTube at the Google HQ in Dublin. I was delighted to have been brought back this year. I was invited last year too and I shared the details with you in this post.
While I would love to share more TIPS & TRICKS with you today, I will leave that for another time. However, from the bottom of my heart, I just want to say thank you to all the ladies and gentlemen who stop by to read the blogs and watch the videos. You are the reason WHY I share. Thank you.
To all my Irish friends living in different parts of the world, Happy early St. Patrick’s day to you. I believe it is going to be an amazing and colourful event as always here in Ireland and especially in Dublin (capital city of Ireland) where all the magic happens.
Not sure what St. Patrick’s day is? Please check HERE. I shared all you need to know about Paddy’s day in that post.
First, thank you all so much for your good wishes on my birthday. You all made me feel so special and loved. One of my desires is to be able to help people through what I do and I was really happy to receive such feedbacks from you all for my birthday. I am grateful.
Can you imagine? A lady, Bukola Orobiyi did a special birthday number for me. That is an icing on the cake for me. I have written to her to say thank. Amazing lady with amazing voice. I will be the first to buy her record if she ever releases one. She’s awesome.
Today I bring you big trends and colours for SS17, shop display and visual merchandising of the Paris shops. Before that, I hope your week went well. Mine was packed. Can’t complain because busy is good. So how are you and what are your plans for the weekend? Share what you are up to with me in the comments please.
So last year for Valentines day, I shared my love story. It was the story of how I met my husband at a relatively young age and WHY I think no woman should ever be pressured to get married. You can read it in full HERE. I was really happy that a lot of you were kind enough to share your love story with me in that post. I say thank you again because I learnt a lot from your stories.
Today, I will not be sharing any more love stories but will be sharing love all the same.
When you think Style, Romance, Exotic food + Pastries and Architecture, what comes to mind? Paris I would say! What would you say?
In today’s post, I will be sharing my “out and about” look book + Style guide + What you need to know about and before you go to Paris. This series is going to be in parts so for this one which I like to call part one, allow me focus on STYLE. Please read……………
For this blog, I had two choices, use the images/photos I have or don’t share any blog at all. I choose the former because when things don’t go the way we plan, we have to look for a way out or other alternatives. Why?
One of the characteristics of a leader or one who desires to be a leader is to look for a way out even when it has to do with a look book / outfit of the day. Today on Motivation for Monday, I will share some leadership principles to learn from an Eagle with you. Please read………..
Bags to me is like icing on the cake for any look. Wear something casual (denim, basic tee & sneakers) and you look casual. Wear a solid leather bag with that look and your look becomes instantly elevated.
While bags can instantly elevate a look, I have to say that I do not have a wide range of them. I have a minimal collection but I am happy with them. Not sure if this is vain but I do care for my bags like they mean something to me. In this post, I will share some of the ways I take care of my leather bags with you……
It was just like yesterday when we said Happy New Year and all of a sudden, January has come to an end. Amazing! This goes to show that time waits for no one. So how was January for you? January for me was busy. I am venturing into new things and just like any other new thing, it’s been challenging but not what I couldn’t handle, thank God. God is always faithful.
Today, on the blog, I have the January blogs in review + Motivation for Monday for you.
When it comes to fashion, a lot of times, you get what you pay for. Other times, you do not get the value of the money you pay. In the latter, it means you only paid for the brand name and not the quality. A lot of people would do anything to put on the brand irrespective of the quality. For me, irrespective of the brand or the price of the product, the quality matters to me especially if I am paying a lot for it. In this post, I will share with you my take on whether designer shoes are worth it or not.
My second read this year is a book called Mindset by Carol Dweck. I have learnt what kind of mindset works for growth and which one doesn’t. Coincidentally, one of my Mentees (I currently have 6 of them from different parts of the world) wrote an amazing article about the power of the mind…
I popped in to see my “older” friend at home last Thursday and her daughter said to me, Aunty, you look so earthy and pretty; you are wearing all shades of brown……I said yes, I went for photos earlier and I just wanted to wear browns……..
I love all kinds of brown, not only do they sit well on my skin, they are a perfect shade for this season. The earthy feel to browns remind me of mother nature and the beauty of Winter……..
It is been dry around here but SO COLD! To help me combat the cold while staying chic, I reached for this long leather gloves I got last year. I have always wanted them so when I saw this pair online, I decided to get them…..getting them was a good decision because they are now my go to this Winter.
One of the most REWARDING thing I have enjoyed as a Blogger is that I have built an audience that truly believes in me. I am indeed grateful for this.
At the weekend, I responded to so many emails from all my social networks; Instagram, Facebook and Gmail. I take one hour daily before I go to bed to read and respond to emails. The two that brought tears to my eyes this past weekend were the ones I received from a lady from Nigeria and another from the UK via my Facebook page. I have cut out names to keep identity secured…….please read below:
During this past holidays, I rested more than I would normally do and I feel terrific about it. I also read books and selected the books I wanted to read for the entire year – I have bought 2 of the books already and reading them. I also listened to a lot of podcasts, made videos and did more planning for the year. I also did some faffing around with the boys in our pyjamas, watched movies, ate at “sinful hours” and we had lots of fun in general.
So What did you do? What did you plan for the year? I am curious to know so please share them with me below…
I just want to pop in to wish you and yours a happy and prosperous new year and of course, share some new year’s eve look book and my prayer for you….
Happy New Year my beautiful friends!
I do count it a great honour and privilege to be able to influence, inspire and encourage you through Fashion. I am happy indeed that what we set out to do here on the blog is working and also growing into so much more like the “Motifashion” series which is a mix of fashion and motivation and also the “Use What You Have” book to mention a few. I am grateful indeed. I thank you for staying with me on Moj In Touch.
How are you and how did you spend your Christmas? Did your Santa turn up? 🙂
Here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year ahead!
I want to thank you so much for going on this amazing journey with me. 2017 is going to be bigger and better I promise. I hope you stick around 🙂
Honestly, the last thing on my mind for the book launch was what to wear. I wasn’t so particular about what to wear because although it was important, it wasn’t urgent. What was urgent to me were things like; getting the cake sorted, ensuring bags to take away was delivered and most importantly, ensuring books was available for reveal and launch.
While what to wear on the day wasn’t my focus, I knew I wanted to stand out on the day. But wait, what does it mean to stand out?
When it comes to formal work wear, there are limitations to what we can do because of the dress code rules we have to abide by or with. However, “twerking” what we wear to work in an unexpected way can add some fun and creativity to our looks. This is what I mean……..in all honesty, while pantyhose / tights are tagged a “requirement” in some professional scene or setting, wearing fish net tights is not necessarily professional to work. Am I wrong?
So what do you do when you are not sure what you hope for may never come or what do you do when you think Christmas is going to be crap already? Still not sure of……..
If I am been honest, I am not one who thinks you have to buy a new dress or clothe before you slay for the holiday parties. My character hasn’t changed and my for that reason, my name remains…..”The Maximiser”. Yep, even at Christmas 🙂 Honestly I am writing this blog for the sake of those sisters who are limited on cash but still want to look good.
Today, I bring you 5 dresses I didn’t buy for christmas parties but can be worn for Christmas parties.
