My Ankara Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Brace yourself, winter is coming.

Earth To LAJA

I'll just be honest with myself and admit that I'm a sucker for flared skirts and off should tops (substitute turtle necks for colder weather)  This is a casual outfit that's comfy yet chic. I found myself gravitating towards it and I thought "Not again." This one is from my fashion line, LAJA. The amount [...]

Eternity & A Day

I have this sense of urgency about life. I always feel I can do more, do better, reach higher. At the stage (and age) I'm in, I believe so strongly it's the best time to try out new things, go out of my comfort zone, make mistakes because honestly, things only get more complicated as [...]

LAJA in Osborne II

Gold tone, gold accents, LAJA loved gold. Always had and always will. After a wild night of merry, exotic cuisines and cocktails,  she seeks some solace before her bittersweet departure.  Taking in the clear blue waters and relishing the sun on her skin, enjoys the magical moment while pondering... Where next? Special thanks to SpringPark [...]

BAD.

I hope you're enjoying what's left of the weekend. I finished watching "Far From The Madding Crowd", I started it on the plane but didn't get to around till the end. I AM IN LOVE. I love movies, books, TV Shows and pretty much anything where the heroine (if she's the main character) is strong [...]

8 Illustrations To Begin 2016

With the start of a New Year, I always believe in making goals not resolutions. Whenever I make resolutions, I always seem to fall of them within a short period and honestly, I'm not the biggest believer in the whole "New Year, New me" type of talk. Old habits die hard... real hard. Instead, I [...]

This Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing day! I went for a relative's birthday party! Yes, she shares the same birthday as Jesus. It was a great time with food and lovely company. I've been visiting many family members and friends and it absolutely blows my mind that they know about Miss LAJA! Hearing the things they [...]

Gele Chronicles: B&W

Here's another gele look since I haven't done one in a while. I plan on doing a lot of the holidays as I'm in the process of coveting my mum's wardrobe *cheese* This isn't a gele entirely but I wanted to head piece and jewelry to be the focus of the look. What do you  [...]

Blue Lagoon

I'm half asleep as I type this since I just touched down in Nigeria and my body is just confused. First thing I was greeted with was the heat and I welcomed it wholeheartedly because you know I'm not at all about that cold life. Anyways, it's good to be home and have a change of [...]
