40 and Fabulous

Not me, lol. Still in my Roaring Twenties thanks very much. 

But I attended a stupendous (this is not an exaggeration) 40th birthday celebration that spanned two days over the weekend and I'm still reeling from it.

There was a throwback native party where everybody wore ankara and drank palm wine and Shina Peters shook his money maker. 

Then an elegant black tie dinner a day after. It was black and white themed and Daks gave them as usual.

Wearing my fave Esosa Stores (will do a designer spotlight on the Creative Director in due course). 

WEARING: Esosa Stores Dress; Rand & Pluto 'Maleficient' Earrings (get HERE), Le Reve Bangles

Get into the henna on my hand, henna is my newest obsession. I LOVE tattoos but since I intend to be in legitimate employment for a while still, can't use my body as a canvas like I want to so I've started getting into henna art every couple of weeks or so.

Got henna on my back as well, which you can see is already fading......sadly

Love and light xx

L'Espace x Blogger 2015 Limited Edition Calendar

So this is a project I've been really excited about......

The fabulous and amazingly forward thinking L'espace By LPM Team put together a calendar for 2015, featuring 12 fashion and beauty bloggers across the continent.....and had I not been included I will probably have been apprehended while skulking around Olosa street with some kind of explosive device.

By far my favorite aspect of this calendar was that the pictures of the bloggers were going to be illustrations. I've always wanted an illustration of myself and here come the lovely people from L'espace pretty much giving me one for Christmas. I mean I stalk Hayden Williams Instagram page so much he must see my handle in his dreams. 

Of course I had to go with the best month......

So below, on the left is the original picture the illustration was based on and its from my friend Yewande's 50s themed wedding back in September. I especially love the boob job I was given :)

By now you must be wilding out wondering how to get this calendar (and rightly so), easy peasy...they are available in store at L'espace - 19a Olosa street, Victoria Island, Lagos, or online at lespacebylpm.com. The desk version costs N3,000, while the wall version costs N5,000.

Now the kicker is you not only get an aesthetically pleasing calendar to look at for the next 11 months, you can also fill your goody two shoes quota, because 30% of proceeds from all sales of the calendar will go to the YESA Fund.

Got mine and its already assumed pride of place on my coffee table.

Get yours HERE

Love and light xx

I looked at the date of my last post and cringed.


No words.....


I wasn't going through any major life upheavals, I just got a bit...dare I say it....bored with blogging. Blogging has always been a creative outlet and after a while it became a bit tedious. Maybe its the over-commercialization of the whole thing but when it started feeling like it was "by force" to blog I withdrew.

However I woke up this morning, put on my Frosted Flaked t-shirt and for the first time in months opened up thirdworldprofashional.com. No idea what to attribute this sudden gra gra to but I welcome it.

In the meantime though my life has accelerated like crazy. Went on some fabulous trips, FINALLY moved out of my parents house and into a place of my own and made some very unlikely but very rewarding career decisions.

2014 was like a movie and 2015 is looking just as unpredictable but I'm ready for it.

Love and light xx
