Go Melanin | Go Fro 

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!

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 .

#outandabout || Jakande lekki beach

Hey guys,

I hope you all are doing alright, have you checked out my previous post on what I wore for Eid and one vintage shirt like that here and here. A few of the photographs I captured at the beach were featured on 360 nobs  so you can go check them out . you can also check out my portfolio here

We decided to go do ‘yawo Sallah’ which actually means going out to chill after Eid in Hausa lol.

My  family and I planned on going to Elegushi because it was basically the only beach we knew of  (and because it is always hyped) so off we went!

We got to Elegushi and then the guys at the entrance decided to charge us ₦9000. LOL! We laughed thinking the guy was joking but he wasn’t.Like was he insane , 9k for what? To enter the beach. A natural gift from God and it’s not like they maintain the beach with all the money they extort from the masses.  I was so darn pissed!

Long story short, we left Elegushi because we obviously couldn’t pay that much mind you, we were nine of us in the SUV. The guy’s attitude was just nasty and even if we were to end up paying the cash we wouldn’t have because it was just nasty.

So we decided to head home…

On our way home, we saw a traffic sign indicating that there was another beach in that same area so we decide to check it out and we landed at JAKANDE LEKKI BEACH.

And they didn’t even charge up to ₦5000 and we gladly paid lol. (I still don’t understand why we have to pay though).

We got to the beach and the fun began, tItried to be very careful with the ocean because the last time I went to the beach, I went back home PHONELESS. I wasn’t going  to let that happen to me again.


Jakande beach was fun and I captured so many beautiful people and beautiful moments. and I watched the sunset and it was breathtaking!

 

If I were to go to a beach anytime soon, it’s going to be Jakande Lekki beach. Even though tit’s all The same beach just barricaded. And did I mention how neat it is? Like way neater than that Elegushi everyone is always hyping.

 

I hope you enjoyed this  post and the pictures. And have you ever heard or been to Jakande Lekki beach? Let me know in the comment box below.

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.
