All this Melanin – Flawless 81

“I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me”

Look at all this melanin. Beautiful under the sun, beautiful during the sunset, beautiful at night.

I’m becoming more comfortable in my skin, in my body, in my spirit. And that is one of the most beautiful things of all.










Felt like channeling my inner 90’s girl… or maybe it’s the 80s.. ūüôā

I’ve never taken pictures in the evening, or even at night,¬†so I just went out one night and just decided to. I love how I caught the sunset in the back!

Culture Me

Hey Beautifuls!

This is a really late post lol. I’m trying to get back on my A-game.

On Easter Sunday I decided to go back to my roots, with a bit of a modern twist.

I wore the Traditional Aso-Oke in what my Aunt (who’s a queen) would call royal colors. Of course my modern twist was the more modern lace blouse instead of a traditional buba.

I even tied the Gele (head tie) myself! It was my first time ever trying and I think I did a great job!

Hi, I created the New Nigerian tag, just because I wanted to do my own, and¬†I wasn’t really liking the ¬†question on the original one I had seen.¬†Of course this one is inspired by that one. Make sure to peep the video above¬†and subscribe if you haven’t already.

Feel free to use it on your YouTube channels or pages or whatever. But if you do please link them back here!

A Time for Everything (OOTD)

“To everything¬†there is¬†a season,¬†A time for every purpose under heaven.”¬†Ecclesiastes 3: 1


Hey Beautifuls! It’s been a minute. Today’s post is an OOTD with my friend. We were at my Aunt’s (not really an aunt, but if you’re Nigerian, you understand) Introduction Ceremony. It’s a Yoruba tradition where a couple has been engaged to be married and they have this big ceremony introducing their fiance to both sides of the family basically. It’s just like a mini Traditional wedding.

Hey Beautifuls!! Welcome to my blog!!!!! This is my first official post! Yippee! So I know I’ve had this blog since Early May, and I never posted anything out of laziness, but hey!! Here I am!

So lets get into it, Shall we?

I’ve been changing some things in my life and one of the things I’m trying to incorporate into my lifestyle, is trying to look your best or at least presentable at all times, unless of course it is absolutely inevitable (exams). So I put together this little outfit the other day. (Heading to pay for classes and then to the mall)




So I know I might have spoilt the look with the sneakers, But I was going for formal but casual at the same time (Don’t judge me lol), But lets say I was going for a fully formal look, I added these babies to it.



Here’s my completely formal look


I was feeling my model moment above hehe ūüôā



  • Top: Chiffon Blouse from Rue 21
  • Skirt: BCX at Macy’s
  • Jewelry: Forever 21, and a dollar store
  • Boat Shoes: Rock & Candy Boatie Boat shoes (DSW) here
  • Heels: Rachel Roy ¬†Kalyssa ¬†similar¬†here¬†or here¬†( I think my version is only available in stores.)

There we have it, my outfit of the day. Have a nice day! And God bless you!
