I’ve got work to do. A lot of work. It’s got to be done this evening and yet, here I am sitting at my desk at 6:50pm thinking about what I like to call “Afternoon Tea”.
Anya Hindmarch recently designed a whole line of delicious clutches, hold-alls and Ebury bags. She’s included Bourbon, Custard Cream and even crisps, you know…. just a few divine pastries you’d find stacked on your Afternoon Tea cake stand.
Now I know there are no scones or gateauxs featured in the collection, but you have to admit, the craftmanship of these bags are pretty sweet (okay, okay, I’ll stop with the food references, it’s getting cheesy… Lol)!
What are your thoughts on Anya’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection? Does it go down quite the treat or is it not your cup of tea? (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!)
She’s also got a refreshing line of breakfast cereals including Cornflakes, Frosties and Coco-pops so really this blog post could have gone either way…. “Breakfast is served” or “Afternoon Tea Anyone?”
Ps: I think I had too much fun with the food references in my description.
PPs: Happy Democracy Day to all my Nigerian Followers…. Let’s hope this Change will be for the better.
Sometimes (only sometimes) I think my sister, Wura, may be more stylish than I am. For the past few months, I’ve been longingly lusting and hopelessly drooling over the Mansur Gavriel Bucket and Wura is to blame.
Structured with Italian Vegetable leather, the Bucket is a casually classy everyday bag. Big enough to store the essentials and yet somewhat discreet, the Mansur Gavriel Bucket is my interpretation of understated glamour. Lined with a striking red resin, the Bucket bag teases a little bit of attitude without being brash.
Simple as it may be, the MG Bucket is the top of my wish list this Easter. Maybe, just maybe I will indulge myself.

Ps: It’s Bouquet!!!! Lol Did anyone ever watch “Keeping Up Appearances?”
PPs: I’m working overtime this weekend. I’m not pleased. I’m not pleased at all!
I was in Grenoble last October when I spotted a Cambridge Satchel on my fellow nappy lover Esione of Beautifully Nappy. This was by no means the first time I’d set eyes on a Cambridge Satchel but it was the first time that I’d REALLY considered owning one.
The Cambridge satchel is very well put together. He exudes a dapper radiance and preppy character. With his matte finish and clean cut, he woos with his every stride. Primed with a subdued elegance, it’s impossible to imitate the snobbish character of the Cambridge Satchel and resultantly, I purchased one.
I call my Cambridge Satchel Roosevelt simply because it strikes me as a polished, well spoken gentleman with a bit of a hidden agenda. FDR maybe? I can’t say really. He reminds me of Chuck Bass only he’s rich in oxblood as opposed to the sheen of patent leather. Roosevelt has become my everyday Prince Charming. He was well worth every penny!
Ps: I’m quite pleased with myself. I’m on a roll with my blogging!
PPs: In line with my BMS, I’ve downloaded ‘7 minute workout’. I love the app and strongly recommend it if you’re interested in light exercise for your body.
Remember my post The Spider King’s Daughter? Well, lo and behold, I spotted the object of my desire at Terra Kulture last Tuesday and just HAD to buy. I was going to give her a Nigerian name seeing as she’s the Nigerian interpretation of the Pandora, but Taiwo classed that too cliche and so we went with Eugene. Uncommon yet precious.
No. She’s no Charlotte Olympia, but she sure as hell will do! Hope you like as much as I do.
Ps: Eugene comes with two ankara purses AND a chain strap. Can you say BARGAIN?
PPs: Does anyone know the designer?
PPs: Have you spotted my shellac nails? I’m thinking I should do a post on them.
If ever there was one thing I disliked about the Michael Kors brand, it would have to be the bags! I could never relate to how bland and (in my humble opinion,) tacky his designs were. The “MK” embossed/printed on the mediocre shaped bags did not (by a long shot) tickle my fancy and like the Louis’ and Gucci’s of this world, I swore I’d never own a Michael Kors bag. All of this of course, was well before the conception of Miranda.
Now Miranda is quite the sight for sore eyes. Her poise, her elegance, her structure….. wonderfully stunning. She’s brings a clean, refreshing sense of class to the MK bag collection without rubbing it right in your face. Perhaps she could even be mistaken for a Celine but who cares? You could be robed in rags from head to toe but with the clutch of the Miranda, all will be forgiven in the judgmental world of Fashion!
Ps. Happy Easter Bonitas!!!!!
I spent my Friday on a range of social media sites. It began with Instagram where I discovered old friends with new experiences; after which I moved on to Pinterest my “go-to” place for DIY and crafts. Finally, I hit the online magazines and blogs in search of what I will refer to as “pure fashion”.
Naturally, Vogue was the number one destination encapsulating “pure fashion” and the Chanel Hula Hoop bag enveloped me in its creative circus.
Has there ever been a bag less practical? Is this the extraordinaire that is “fashion”? More importantly, would you carry this beach bag or maybe a smaller version?
Ps: I recently joined Pinterest but have got no pictures up. Lets see how long I’ll last on it. Lol
Pps: Had my fro out for a bit. I just might show you pictures.
Every now and then, there’s a fad that everyone seems to cling to. It lasts but for a moment before we then move on to the next craze with the old bearly a memory of what used to be.
Recently, Wura (yet another one of my sisters) drew my attention to these Isabelle Marant wedged sneakers and this Celine Phantom handbag. We’ve spotted them on 9/10 notable fashion blogs and as a result, they are worthy of mentioning. I’m not the slightest bit a fan of sneakers but if Beyonce could feature these on the very much adored ‘Love on Top’ video, it’s jolly well good enough to mention. The Celine bag however is one that is very much after my heart (and pocket) and just because it’s CELINE it’s ruddy well perfect for my blog!
What are your thoughts on these?
