Why My Sister's Place in Heaven is

Who doesn't love their older sister? Not me! Especially when she knows just what to give to make me happy..first for my birthday, then for no particular reason (I love that chick!), and then for Christmas!
Sigh. #GodBlessOlderSisters!

Birthday shoes..
Christmas shoes!

Just Because shoes! Lol..

Hope you all had a merry Christmas.
Happy holidays!

Lazy Days

Some days all I want to do is grab the first thing in my closet and go. Um, most days actually. That whole 'budding fashionista' thing? Emphasize the budding, please. :) So forgive me if some of my outfits are a bit obvious; I'm still a long, long way off from my ultimate style goal (Karla Deras-like virtuosity, in case you were wondering what my ultimate style goal is). Today I matched in the most obvious ways; it's almost disgusting to look at the colours, but hey! I live in Nigeria. We love to match. So what if I'm lazy sometimes? I have the right!
Now, to the apologies. I apologise for the grotty pictures. My camera (read my sister's camera, actually) hates me; if it's not one thing, it's another. So I have to use my phone all the time, and well, it's not a very high-tech phone. It serves its purpose quite well as a phone, but as a camera? Uh, nah.
The next apology would be for the erratic posts. Like I said earlier, I was disillusioned with fashion blogging for a while. But my fire has been rekindled, and I hope this time it stays kindled. English needs help.
Wait. I'm assuming anyone is even reading this. Smh. :)
So you noticed that the picture quality suddenly deteriorated. I know. The first one was taken by a nice friend of mine who thinks I'm vain but supports me anyway. I need more friends like Anyway, this is me attempting to look nice while in the air. I've tried and tried (and failed!) to take a nice 'Oh, lookatmeI'mjumping' sort of picture. This one was only the least weird of about don't know why, but I never jump at the right time, and even when I do, I have a weird look on my face or
Yes, yes. These shoes look familiar. That's because I have them in two colours. Who does that? Apparently I do. I should do a whole separate post on the story of how come I have the same shoes twice over. Maybe I will.

And that's it. Me in as many weird poses as I care to show the wide I really love this outfit though; very comfy, and the colours are 'adorb' (stylish-speak for really really
I hope you had at least as good a day as I did! x

A few WTH? Moments

It's been a while since I last posted, largely because I felt like this blog was losing direction and I didn't want to become yet another fashion blogger. My wardrobe isn't that amazing anyway (yet!), so I thought I'd just delete this blog. But then, I looked at some of the pictures on my phone and realised there's a bit of stuff there that might be interesting to the rest of the world, so if you'll forgive the quality, here we go.

This one really blew me away. I didn't realise till I was on the bike what was going on, but it's kinda hard to miss what's on the head of a person sitting right in front of you. I know Lagosians are creative, but WTH is this? I'll tell you. It's a helmet made from styrofoam (you can't see it cuz I couldn't get a shot of the top of his head) and duct tape. Very snug, but I don't know about how effective it is...

I think this one speaks for itself; they need a new slogan, yesterday! Port Harcourt people seem short on'm so witty. Lol..

These guys can't seem to be able to make up their minds; is it a church, is it a beer parlour, is it a church where beer is accepted? You can't have it both ways, you know!

This one is my personal favorite. It was one of those days when I cursed the fact that I don't lug my camera around everywhere. This man, who has to be at least forty if he's a day, is wearing a (yes! he is!) pink pair of shades. And that's not it; you can't tell from here, but they're studded. With rhinestones. I saw him at the revamped Mr. Biggs (God knows why I even went there in the first place. I should've known trauma would follow) and went WTbloodyH??? I'm sure your seven-year-old daughter missed those, Daddy-o!

Another one I like, on yet another bike. I need me a car..anyone interested? I did a double take with this one. These people will not kill someone. Is he kidding?? Apparently

This one I saved for last, not because I particularly liked it, but because it was in the Punch. Uh huh. The Punch. Nigeria's best Newspaper or whatever. WTflippin'H? Like I seem to now like to say, These people will not kill

I hope you're having a few WTH? moments yourself, wherever you are, (and hopefully in your because they're good for laughs, and laughs are way good for you. Have an amazing week, and month too! Ta!
