Hello everyone! Welcome (back) to my blog!

Today’s post is a quick dark-plum makeup tutorial, in case you need some inspiration for the fall season, for people who have that.
In case you missed it and as i mentioned in the YouTube video, I am a Nigerian living in Nigeria, and we don’t have the four seasons that the west do, nevertheless, the fun part of makeup is experimenting and plying with various colors and inspirations.
So fall season or no, you can create and rock this simple, minimal, dark-plum makeup look. 
I used very few products, as usual.

Fall-inspired | Dark plum Makeup.

Hello everyone! We are talking classic fashion pieces today, specifically, the white, button-down shirt.
After the skinny black jeans, the plain white, button-down shirt is arguably the second most-important piece of clothing to have in your closet.

As a minimalist, i’m a big believer in curating your wardrobe intentionally and with my personal style in mind, so every single piece I own is comfortable, suits my body & lifestyle and is 100% flattering on me. This white shirt is one of such pieces.  
This particular piece is made of linen fabric and is in a slightly-loose cut , which is my personal preference and i actually find it the most flattering cuts for shirt.

Classic, universally flattering no matter your style, size or even complexion, easy to wear and super versatile, the white shirt can work with all kinds of outfits, for various occasions including work, parties, editorials, church, dates and even weddings, yes.

I styled my white button-down shirt  two ways in this post; work style and casual style.

For work, i styled it with a pair of gingham pants that were one of my favorites when i was in corporate, along with a pair of black pumps and a complimentary gray tote bag. Classic all around.
I popped on some power-red lipstick and simple silver accessories to tie-up the look.

For the casual look, i wore it with my blue mom-jeans, paired it nude clear-heeled sandals and a tiny leather purse. 
My beloved Chanel scarf added a stylish, French touch to the outfit, and minimalist gold accessories tied it all up!
 A white button-down shirt can do so much more and i can’t wait to show you in my future posts.
So if you don’t have a white-button down shirt in your closet yet, get one now!

Style: White Button-down Shirt | Two-way Styling.

 Hello everyone, hope you are doing great? It's been dry over here, so i decided to play with some color via makeup, as usual :)
Purple makeup seems to have become a fave of mine (after red lips and black eyeliner), and i find i very flattering. Not boring, great on dark skin tones and fun!

I recently bought the La Posh eyeshadow pallete from a local Nigerian brand called Blossom Makeup and it has really stunning colors so doing this look was a breeze. I cannot wait to explore the palette further!

Now to the look. I paired the bold, colourful eyes with simple nude lips done with the Zaron Cosmetics 'Cappucino' lip pencil and a nude gloss from another Local Nigerian brand; Mi-ni Beauty (@mi.ni_beauty on Instagram).

What do you think? 

A full tutorial is on my YouTube channel here, go watch to see how i achieved this look. Don't forget to leave a comment and subscribe!

Makeup: Purple Smokey Halo Eyes.

Hey guys! It’s been a minute here but i’m back today with a style post ft. one of my oldest and dearest clothing items: this olive green cargo jacket.
As a minimalist, i’m all about simple pieces that is decent quality, can survive long wear and is versatile enough to be paired with various other pieces. This Olive Cargo jacket is at least six or seven years old, can’t remember for sure but it’s still holding up well.
Also, cargo jackets are easy pieces that give you layering options and of course, coverage , without trying too hard. They are like the chiller sister to denim or suit jackets.

I styled it here in a classic casual way, pairing with black skinny jeans (NO, I FINALLY GOT A NEW PAIR, DON'T WORRY J), a cropped white tank and my simple black heels. I added the gold accessories to compliment the olive color, as well as the gold(ish) zipper on the jacket.

Sidenote – I seem to have suddenly found love for crop tops, which is odd, because mans getting old, plus, my belly and waist are not cute at the moment /anymore so i should be camouflaging them, right? hahahaha neverrrr!

Anyway, I’ll be styling this jacket in another outfit soon, so stay tuned for that.

What is the oldest clothing item you own and how long have you had it? Share in the comments!
