Old Lady Blues

I honestly thought I could party hard, I really believed that I was still the same old Daks circa early 2000s who could party with the best of them.

I was wrong.

This weekend it felt more like I was 62 instead of 26, I fully intended to get shattered after my exams, I proclaimed the fact far and wide but after just one night I spent the rest of the weekend skyping, trying to find a suitable site to watch my tv shows and just being a big fat couch potato. 

Old age has really set in and I'm not even mad, for a couple of years now I've derived more pleasure from staying in than partying hard. It is so serious that when I went home for Christmas, I only went out to a club once, just one time in the three weeks I was in Lagos. 

Had to make an exception for Friday though because it was my friend Funsho's birthday so I dusted off my Miss Havisham cobwebs and set out in search of a good time.


We went out to dinner first where I pigged out as usual, I'm biting my nails awaiting the day my super-human metabolism gives up on me and everything that goes through my lips ends up on my hips.





I spotted a girl at the club we went to after dinner and drinks wearing the Virgos Lounge Coco dress, it is such a rockstar outfit I had to go up to her and tell how her fab she looked and surprise surprise she's a TWP fan. I still get excited when people recognize me from my little corner of the internet or they say how much they love my blog, it always seems so surreal, like "lil ol' me, really?"


Blazer, bandeau top and pencil skirt with lime accents - River Island
Glittery silver pumps - Dorothy Perkins

I don't know if anyone has noticed lately but River Island is knocking it out of the park this year. I'm not usually a River Island fan, I mean I get some stuff from there but I'm not like a devotee or anything. I went in there completely by accident to return a pair of shoes I bought over the holidays and was just floored by everything I saw. They are going hard on the neon trend, that's the store I said I went into and went a little crazy, I wanted literally everything in there, managed to cop a few budget permitting.

RI is killing it, no jokes.

After the night, woke up at an ungodly hour on Saturday and spent the day alternating between my bed and my kitchen.

Joblessness feels so good.

Love and light xx
