Crisp Leaves

  Hello sunshine! As I type this post currently, I'm not the happiest of bunnies. I had a fashion show I'm meant to go to. It's actually to today but I thought it was yesterday (btw, you're reading this in the future) but yes, I was so excited I forgot to double check the date. [...]

Pumpkin

  Just finished with Fall break and gradually coming back to the reality that is school. It flew by way too fast though. The rest was very much needed. Gave me a lot of time to clear my head and take time to catch up on leisure activities. I was so occupied with stuff I [...]

AfroGrunge

  Happy New Month, lover! Saying hello to October and goodbye to showing skin. The temperatures have dropped so quickly and you can imagine I'm trying my best to hold onto the scarcest bit of warm weather. Probably the last time you'd see my show this much skin from this point on... till next Spring [...]

White Out

  Oh, white. White, white. One of my least favorite colours to wear mostly because I stain everywhere and everything. Plus, if it's not worn well, you look bigger. Am I the only one who feels that way? Hopefully not. However, I had an all white event and literally had to DIG and RAVAGE through [...]

Cottage Away From Home

LAJA goes on another one of her adventures away from home. Her arrival reveals two sides she simultaneously embraces and struggles with. Something about the cottage forces her to confront both sides. To understand that the two distinct parts form a whole, one LAJA. What in the cottage, how and why, we'll probably never know. [...]

Fans And Leopard

  Really transitioning for Fall. I've been all about that dark and neutral look for a bit. Especially with my lip colors. Can't seem to get enough of those deep burgundy, brownish-reds. I even got a nail polish in that color. Looking forward to the fashion aspect of the season but not so much the [...]

LAJA Poppins

In the middle of shooting these pictures, I felt so Mary Poppins. My outfit was just short of a little hat (still finding my place with them, not the biggest fan) and my matching umbrella. So there you go, introducing LAJA Poppins.   This is another vintage ankara dress, courtesy Mummy LAJA. The sequins, buttons [...]

Blue Jeans

I'm excited to share the second look from  my #AnkaraInDisney trip. Yeah this isn't Disney but I explain why the shoot had to pushed forward. Read the hilarious story here and peep the first outfit here. I love the concept of jeans and ankara. It's something I have never done before and I look forward [...]

Ankara In Disney

From my LAJAgram, you'll know I was in Florida last week. Disney was one of my stops and it was a short and VERY eventful two days. I really need to share this story because it almost feels unreal that such events took place with such coincidences... Or shall I say divine intervention?   The [...]
