Final days

Hey Lovely people!
As we all know it's back to school week, don't know if I'm looking up to this semester but I know I want to see A's when its over; that means working hard, studying, playing and more studying. :D
Like my dad says, "Your going to a war front....not a fashion parade" lol 
Words like these never leave, it sticks!

Anytime I wear this romper with "ankara" prints, people keep thinking it was self designed/self made etc I actually got this from Victoria secret online store sometime last year and it's probably one of my best purchases from them. A belt was highly needed to complete this look so I threw one in. perfect to go out and chill! Photobucket Photobucket Untitled Photobucket Photobucket

Romper- Victoria secret found  same HERE,  similar HERE & HERE
 belt- ebay (similar HERE
shoes- Zara

Right now I look the complete opposite lol but I guess that's what school does.
 Gotta run to class! have a nice day !

Yellow lacey bells

Hello Everyone!

I somehow forgot about this post and was like "crap!" when I realized; I went for a wedding weeks ago and this was my outfit; very bright, bold, colorful, sexy & "Ashi"
 I have no idea why I like love dresses like this for weddings but the color and the lace detailing sold me!
Dresses like this need belts to accentuate the waist and make the silhouette more appealing, so I threw in my vintage gold belt PhotobucketPhotobucket Photobucket Photobucket

dress- sold out :( try love this HERE    HERE and HERE
Shoes:  Zara similar HERE
clutch, belt & ring- ebay try THIS for clutch (very pretty!)
cuffs: thrift store

"Florence"

Photobucket Photobucket

The title of this post still cracks me up, thought I should share the story with y'all;
So I wore this to church like two Sundays ago, The mass/service ended and I proceeded to my car, cat-walking, feeling touched by the Holy ghost. All of a sudden, a younger man started yelling "Florence! Florence!" towards my direction (as-in Nigerian pronounciation "FLAW-RENCE"). I'm thinking "Florence" was somewhere near me then I turn left and right to help call her until I realized he was actually calling me "Florence" because of my blazer SMH.
 My careless self had dropped her keys and he was running after me but really? "FLAW-RENCE"?

Photobucket
blazer/shirt: Zara, belt and cuffs: thrift store, bag: kate spade, tank/necklace: F21

I was trying to make my "Dont jealous me, mehn Shhett!" face (his facial expressions and videos are too funny) my younger siblings enjoy watching his Youtube videos all the time.

If you have any questions you would like to ask, you can always reach me via my facebook page or email  I reply them everytime.
I have a video dropping out TOMORROW for you guys lol you heard me! so check here tomorrow 

Have a wonderful day guys!

Giveaway winner + requested outfit

Photobucket
Hello everyone! happy Friday!
Now I have free time, I feel like my time goes by too quickly smh but I got requested to show this look featured on my "thrift and gist" post; I wore it to church weeks ago. the shirt fit so loosely but I had to make it work with my attitude lol.
Couldn't find the belt from the above picture so I paired it with some other chain belt and it was too much with the necklace so I took it off
The things I do for love

DIY ombre studded/spiked denim shirt

Helllo lovely!
Promised you guys I will have a DIY post up soon and I figured why not now, I still have a bunch of Diys I'm yet to show.
Like every other project, this is pretty easy and cheap so you don't have to break your budget for this total cost me about $10.
Apologize for the camera lighting, I was battling with the settings at that time


Photobucket
First you need a denim shirt, got this at the thrift store for $2 but make sure you buy one with great quality

Photobucket
buy the studs/spikes HERE
Photobucket Photobucket
Pour the bleach into the spray bottle and start to spray beneath the line, make sure the bleach soaks up the whole material, turn the back and spray for increased results, then leave for about 30mins-1 hour to see results
Photobucket
Before the studs were attached

Photobucket
Make dots to the level your studs should reach
Photobucket
connect the lines and start punching in the studs into the shirt

Photobucket Photobucket
Using anything with a flat tip, press the tips of studs down to secure the studs
Photobucket
Photobucket
Voila!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
The winners of my first giveaway will be announced tomorrow! 
Stay tuned bugs :)

Where'd you go?

Where should I start? 
The fact that I have missed you guys or I'm fueled with so much joy knowing I can get back to my regular updates, I have so much to share with you all since I am done with my finals.
 I sincerely apologize and I'm very appreciative of the messages, comments and questions I get from readers; I read everyone and reply all of them. 


Photobucket 

Y'all know my love for spikes/studs so don't be surprised if you see me wear everything "spiked" lol
 Got inspired by some denim shirt my bf had, so I decided to make mine DIY COMING SOON, for now enjoy the pictures

Finally found my way around my camera's settings to bright and wonderful pictures; not that it wasn't good before but it can be annoying at times when you have to edit pictures, so, I'm proud to say these pictures are raw and unedited :)

Photo credits will be given to my awesome blog photographer, Abbott (my baby brother) he takes the flyest pictures and he is just 12 (guess big sis thought him well *pats back*)

*Did any one get to watch the Olympics? I've been entertained and been on the edge of my seat since it started. Congrats to TEAM  U.S.A for the wins and as for Nigeria, I'm still proud of y'all even if the medals never came, pure entertainment and die hard laughter was achieved.
This week has been very eventful and I'm looking forward to even more memorable moments
