Cocktail Sunday

I have been a massive no-show on this streets, that's mostly because blogging and everything that comes with it (the posting, attending events etc) became a bit too much for me to handle. Regulars should be used to me having to disconnect for a couple weeks or so every few months because as much as I like to believe I'm superwoman, ever so often I am forcibly reminded that I'm not and I have to give my 100% to the career that keeps me in Maltina.

After a supremely sedentary weekend, I crawled out of my bolt-hole to attend my friend Chiz's cocktail event at L'espace. Chiz is the CEO of Elle's Icebox, the baddest cocktail company in Nigeria and the girl knows her way around a bar. I'm not a big drinker, but she hinted there were small chops and before I knew it I was speeding down Third Mainland singing 2 Become 1 in my best Mel C voice.

This is me, after healthy servings of small chops. So happy I didn't notice the Mojito being pushed into my hand.


Chiz on the left, Ij and Ify to the right.


Wasn't really fussed about my outfit, I just made sure it was loose enough to pack away the small chops without detection.




I really like this photo (below), if you squint, shape your left hand into a telescope and look very carefully into the reflection of my sunnies you can see my brother Chidi very grudgingly taking this photo.


H&M shirt, ASOS Tall wet look leggings, Calvin Klein cross body bag, Salvatore Ferragamo 'Varina' flats, Hermes bracelets, Bvlgari ring & Ray-Ban sunnies

Ohmygosh you guys, I can't believe I almost forgot to mention ASOS Tall. If you're as blessed as I am with legs for dayssss and you're stuck in a country where you cannot adequately clothe such legs due to a lack of statuesque-centric stores, ASOS Tall is here to save your entire life.

I usually buy clothes about 2 sizes bigger then amend them, just because they'd have longer sleeves or longer lengths.

This is now a thing of the past thank Christ.





Here's to regular blogging in Jesus name.

Love and light xx

 p.s. Elles Icebox will be having a karaoke event at L'espace; 19a Olosa street (the one-way street opposite Eko Hotel, you can access it through Karimu Kotun) on Thursday this week from 6pm. Imagine cocktails and karaoke......potent AF.

I'm hosting, I love karaoke and sing like a screech owl. Come through and get your entire life.

p.p.s Just saw this gif on Buzzfeed, round of applause for Chuck Bass please!


That look was sizzling!

  7. You know, I think you're the only fashion blogger that can pull this off. That is, being away and coming back to so much love. Iv followed your blog since 2009 and you know you made style blogging popular in Nigeria, you were the first and the best and its a testament to your amazingness (yes I said amazingness) that your readers are so devoted to you. I read other style blogs and I see people commenting but its always just standard compliments, there's no outpouring of love like I see on your blog. Its not just your fashion sense, its the way you write, you're so warm, funny, engaging and I can imagine that being friends with you in real life would be a blast. Honestly, I can't name one other Nigerian fashion blogger who inspires so much devotion the way you do. I don't know if you know it and I hope you do, but you're a huge source of inspiration to me and to so many people. Your achievements, your outlook on life, the way you're so interested in everything.

    See o, Iv just shown myself her but I just wanted you to know. In case you didn't that you're amazing and these years Iv been reading TWP I feel like I know you and I can't wait to meet you in person someday.

    As you'll say, love and light, lol.

    Love from Geneva.

    2. Hamidah.....I could kiss you right now. Like a full on song #NoLezzer.

      Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for your kind words, you have no idea how much I appreciate them. I didn't set out to inspire anybody but I'm so glad I have been able to in my own little way. Thank you for the love and whenever you're in Nigeria, drinks on me! In fact a whole week of activities on me.

      xx
