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!

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.

Enjoy.
