Giveaway!

Before about a month ago, I wasn’t that into Virgos Lounge and V Label. I appreciated the heavy beading and signature styles, but never found myself shopping the brands. As wedding season crept up on me this Summer, I increasingly found myself on the websites and now own a piece from each brand. In celebration of my new found love, I have organised this giveaway open to anyone, anywhere who’s fallen in love with the brand about as much as I have.

Brand: Virgos Lounge

Size: 8

It’s pretty simple, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post stating one way in which you’d like to see Bonita Valli improve.

Maju

I’ve never had the largest collection of bags notwithstanding; I’ve always been the biggest fan. It could be leather or raffia; an envelope clutch or a chain-strapped satchel; and it could be handmade or machine manufactured. I really didn’t care, as long as it was a bag; there was a good chance that it would tickle my fancy.

Recently, I was invited to the launch of Maju bags at Chase Mall, VI and for a person as well disciplined as I am; it was a shock that resistance played no role in my subconscious. I attended the opening with Taiwo (now that is a shock in itself) and neither one of us left empty handed.

The store was ridiculously small but you know what they say, “Good things come in small packages” and this was no different. Every square inch of the tiny store was occupied with beautifully handcrafted bags and being the patriot I am, I was proud to find this in Nigeria.

Below are a few pictures of what they had in store.

Ps: The next give away is ready, and I’m excited 🙂

Pps: Even the Sun sets in Paradise

And the winner is…

Thanks so much to everyone that participated in my Giveaway. I have used Random.org to generate a winner and excluded ‘Ola F’ from the competition seeing as she’s my sister. As there were 7 comments (that qualified for the giveaway), I put in a maximum number of 7 and the Result was ‘7’ concluding on Sumbo as the winner.

Congratulations Sumbo, your House 38 blouse will be on it’s way to you shortly.

Second giveaway will be a one of a kind necklace which I have designed and am having Toshade make for it me.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

Ps: I’ve got my ‘fro out today. Whoop!

I simply remember my favourite things…

“Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
Silver white winters that melt into springs,
These are a few of my favourite things……” Maria ‘Sound of Music’

Call me weird (only if you must), but there are a few items I own that always seem to fix a smile on my face. Most of these consist of my bag contents and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s a subconscious act of carrying ‘a ray of sunshine’ with me wherever I go.

Vaseline ‘Creme Brule’: What can I say….. it’s Limited Edition!

L’Occitane cherry blossom hand cream: It’s my delicate heaven only it’s in a tube.

Mint Green Barry M nail polish: It draws a subtle type of attention, the kind I’m all about.

Gucci Guilty: That scent is a post for another day. It makes me smell like a million bucks!

Tea forte: Are you pronouncing it correctly? If you are you’ll have the smile I’m talking about…. the twinkle in your eye. *FYI I don’t even drink tea. Lol*

Primark across the body bag: It looks expensive, except it was only £6!!!!

Accessorize necklace: That necklace makes rags feel like gold.

MAC mascara: I ran out of mascara in December and my Mum got me this tube. It made my month!

Ps: I’m heart broken by the Dana plane crash of the 3rd of June, 2012. I cannot believe that planes still crash in 2012. RIP to those that lost their lives. May their souls rest in perfect peace.

**Anniversary GIVEAWAY**

They say idle hands are the Devil’s workshop and so a year ago, when I was through with exams and seeking a fulfilling way to occupy my new found freedom, I started a Fashion Blog. To celebrate my blogs first anniversary, I have decided to hold my first GIVEAWAY.

Up for grabs is one item that summarize my fashion and encapsulate my style:

HOUSE 38 blouse.

This seemingly simple blouse materializes my personality from the sequin embellished collar to the unsuspecting drop hemline. The chiffon feel is best suited for the easy, breezy, laid-back days, while the red buttons add an understated pop. Available only in a British size 8/10 (I’m not too sure, I got rid of the tag), all you need to do is post a comment along with your name and email address. Feel free to enter as many times as you want. The deadline for entries is the 6th of June 2012, after which I will no longer accept entries. Unfortunately, I’m only able to ship within Lagos and to the UK.

*Necklace not included*

xXx

Ps: Don’t forget to leave your name and email address

PPs: The winner will be chosen using a random generator

PPPs: I slipped today at work and came crashing down flat on the tiled floors of the 17th floor. It was an ugly sight and hurt my tooshie 😦 Luckily, I had a ponytail to cushion my head 🙂
