Review|| Credible Sandals

Hey Guys,

Happy holidays to you all. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season regardless of this recession, I mean everything is so darn expensive!!!!

Anyway, today’s post is more like a review/collaboration post I felt I should write about, just because it was my second time of actually partaking in a competition/challenge and I actually won lol!

if most of you guys know Zulaykha or @omotalaniee_ on twitter you would know that she has a blog and she does a November Happiness challenge every year. In this challenge, she publishes inspirational and motivational posts on her blog for 30 days and I was glad I participated. Basically, she picked people who engaged most with each of the posts consistently and gifts them with some awesome giveaway prices and I was honored to be part of the sponsors giving three vintage shirts to some ladies and I also won a gorgeous brown sandal from The Credible Way.

The credible way is a Nigerian shoe brand who is a friend of Zulaykha, He makes gorgeous and high-quality shoes, sandals and caps. I was really happy I got a chance to win his gift bag which contained a lovely brown sandal. his store is located at E-center yaba, yall can also check out his store online www.thecredibleway.com.

I decided to try working on my flat lay game for you all and I’m really starting to get the hang of this VSCO app and I’m loving it. I was supposed to go see Bibi the other day and I decided to pair my outfit with my gorgeous comfortable sandals, but Bibi canceled so I thought.

why not just go take pictures for the blog?

I did! Photo credit goes to my sis, though, she’s really getting the hang of my camera.

so thank you guys for reading and you all can go check out Zulaykha’s blog and The Credible ways store or simply follow them both on twitter and support Nigerian brands, I think they are actually really trying and with our help, they can actually go places and represent Nigeria.

Hey guys,

What’s up with you all? I hope you all read my previous post on how much I hate the NYSC program and how I’m currently praying and fasting that they should scrap it lol, if you haven’t,you check it out here.

So my course mate / friend decided to rock her natural hair and I said to her;

Chisom, let’s do a photo shoot…with you wearing your afro.

And she said agreed.

Let me say this now and I’m not trying to brag or whatever but I basically inspired her to start embracing her natural hair since e were in 200 level and I must say I feel really proud of myself lol!

So Chisom is a bad ass makeup artist too, you can check out her Instagram page @thecla121 and her makeup page @cvabeauty.

We had to work with two styles,

1- where she wore her natural hair in a puff

2- where she finally embraced and wore hear hair in an afro. Mind you, she doesn’t wear her hair in Afro. This was her first major time.

We basically decided to make it fun and just shoot in some areas in my school.

When we were done with the first style, I found a perfect place to take these dope ass shots which blended well with her afro.

Please, Yall, let’s appreciate her melanin and my editing skills!! claps I think I’m really getting better at this, or what do you think?

During the shoot, she made a statement which made me all mushy ;

Zainab, I’ve never really embraced my afro and I don’t even like wearing it because I wasn’t sure if it would look good on me. But you just made me love it now.. Thank you!.

plus i look like my mom in the 70s lol!

See me feeling like a motivator lol! And I hate feeling mushy. It’s just weird!

Did Yall notice the retro hippie sunglasses, well it’s from my #getshaded collection and you can always send me a dm on Instagram or Twitter for your affordable Vintage shirts and sunglasses too?

P.S- I was about to sell my camera about last week and I started figuring out some things about it and I’m just falling in love with it the more. This baby is staying with me forever!

Thank you guys for reading, if you would like us to work on some sort of collaboration, click here and let’s work together!

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.

Hafy X Shona || Noir et Blanc

Hey guys,

I hope you all are doing great today and yeah who advised Instagram, I mean common! That level of pettiness, though, I’m really thinking of deleting my snap chat because I really can’t have two apps serving the same purpose on my phone, besides I feel with Instagram stories, I have a wider reach and I have a way to engage with my followers or what do you guys think?

So, I’m sharing with you the first ever collaboration with the beautiful Hafsah popularly known as Hafymo on Instagram, you can check her out her blog here .

#whatIwore||First Blog Post.

Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

Hey, guys!!!

Well, this is my first blog post and I am quite excited. I have been procrastinating on when to start this blog. But like I started my YouTube videos which you can check out here, so I took a deep breath and just give it a go. I didn’t want to start because I wasn’t sure if I was going to have readers who could relate to what I  wanted to blog about but I said to myself ” what the heck” I definitely know that if I didn’t start now and didn’t think I’m ever going to.
