Currently I’m – #1

What’s up, guys?!

So I decided to join the currently I’m bandwagon. Just because some of my new favorite bloggers actually do this, and I like amebo so I’d like to know what they had been up to, I decided to give it a go. So basically you guys will be seeing more of this monthly and I really hope to be consistent with it.

So let’s get started.

Currently, I’m…

Loving my new life planner from HDHQ goods. I recently got this life planner after my cousin gingered me as usual. I will be doing a review of the life planner soon. It has really been helping me to track my goals and progress.

Preparing for my first semester exams. I’m just counting down till I’m finally done with uni. I’m tired, 5 years is not beans!!!

Frustrated because bells can just like to be annoying! So decided to launch their student online portal (school of technology indeed) after 11 years of running a university and the whole thing is just messing up with my courses and I’m just tired of going back to their office because I have better things to do (e.g study) and Oh yh, you need to see the queue for the exam clearance form. Why is it a school of technology if all of these things can’t be done online!!!

Tired  of my school

Hoping to begin chapter 2 of my dissertation after my exams. I know some people who are already in chapter 4. Sigh

Appreciating  My amazing and loyal customer who always patronize my #vintageVibes and #getshaded collection. My readers who never fail to disappoint me by going through my blog nd dropping some of their thoughts in the comment box below.

Grateful about my BIBI  and life in general. Who knew I would be where I am today.

Missing my family and of course Lagos.

Wondering why some customers will send me a dm telling me they are interested in some items and begging for me to keep it, only for them to not get back to me 1 week after allowing me to lose other potential customers.

Loving my newest blog design for Jamila, Sekinat, and Nasiry. You can check them out here

Counting down  to June.

Admiring  sekinat sanni’s  zeal. Not just because I  designed her blog and also had a photoshoot with her but because she’s such an amazing soul who is very supportive and of course slays in plus size. You guys need to check out her blog. Amazing and inspirational content she’s got.

So there goes my currently I’m  for this month and I hope you guys can either relate or this section. Let me know if you would like to continue with this series.

As usual, don’t forget to drop your thoughts!!!

Collaboration || Ric Hassani

Hey guys,

Been a while I know, my host has been shit and I can’t wait to transfer to another hosting service because I’m so damn tired of my current one!
Anyway, my previous post got deleted with my comments because they had to restore my blog to about a week before so now I have to find a way for you guys to check it out and drop your comments all over, do check out the previous post here.
So I was on twitter jejely when I got a mention from one of my followers who quoted Ric Hassani’s tweet asking for a fashion blogger who would like an to have exclusive pictures of him from his trip to Abeokuta (the Ake festival which I wish I had gone for sadly). So I just thought to give it a go.
If Yall don’t know Ric Hassani, he’s an upcoming musician and his genre is so unique. And I have only heard one of his songs and I must say, he sings beautifully.

So we (Ric and I) got talking on Twitter and I decided to ask him what inspired the photo shoot because he felt at peace and I could feel it. So he said;

Some people always feel like you have to be with someone or find someone to find yourself but, people don’t know there is strenght in alone, there is strenght in ‘self’, you can be powerful when you are by yourself. And ‘self’ is the most peaceful and powerful place.

The whole concept Is my type of photography and I appreciate good photography when I see one, thanks to @xamanijr

Now I want you all to appreciate the next few photographs because they are beautiful.

Ric Hassani seems like a nice and humble gentleman and I hope to actually have a proper shoot with him in the nearest future!

Model – Ric Hassani

Roqeeba X Shona || saturday in lere

Hey guys,

I hope you all are doing great today. I’m just here counting down to when I’m going to be done with my internship and I can’t wait because I need proper rest and I need to have a life lol!

Anyway, some weeks back,roqeeba and i got talking and if you don’t Know her, she is a photographer and a creative one at that. we actually met on Instagram.

So we got talking  and we felt it would be nice to do a collaboration so she came up with a phone booth concept. Since the phone booth was invented ages ago so we thought to make it a complete retro theme.

Outfit Details

I wore a Black turtle With a vintage shirt. Together with a boyfriend Jean and a black and white platform sandal. I got the sandal at Konga, you can check it out.

She came to pick me up, I mean ow nice was that lol!

This was actually our first time of actually meeting and I must say,  we bonded so well Masha Allah.

We headed over to the phone booth at Sam Shonibare, Surulere. I took my new camera along just to check out the quality in broad daylight and of course to get used to it. by the way, I’m starting to find my way around the camera, we have really bonded lol! you can check out the post on the Samsung nx 3oo here. 

here are the pictures which were taken at the Phone booth.

 

When we were done shooting at the phone booth, we started thinking of other cool places to take pictures so we sorta drove around Surulere looking for location and we found this really cool place with really dope paintings on the wall at Adelabu. would have loved to take pictures of all of the paintings but the owner said we had to pay and we got no money. but I already took a few shots before he decided to chase us away lol!

on our way, we met this little girl who was selling pomo (cow hide) and she became our muse. I will be sharing pictures from our shoot with her in another blog post. stay tuned!

All in all, I had a very fun day with roqeeba. when we were done, we headed over to her place so I could get the pictures and then she taught me how to use the lightroom software. using lightroom is actually pretty easy but I just couldn’t help being graphic lol! so I decided to turn some of the photographs we took into some sort of graphic Art. Roqeebah was shocked because this was the first time I would ever use lightroom and I changed the whole game lol! I guess I’m just a natural.notice how I changed the colors of the wall.same wall, different colors lol!

when we were done at Adelabu, we began looking for other places to take pictures again lol! so we got Eric Moore to take these shots.
