Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Personally, it beats Easter, the Summer and yes, it even beats Birthdays! Unfortunately, this Christmas will differ from the norm as my family won’t be together (*wails*) nevertheless, we’ll celebrate Jesus and the joy of Christmas shan’t be lost.
As Christmas shopping should be in full swing, it dawned on me that there couldn’t be a better time to market TOSHADE jewellery. Therefore, as you can see below, I have uploaded pictures of some of my favourite pieces from TOSHADE…. Beaded creativity for the simple yet stylish!

Ps: I’ve started exfoliating my lips… save that for the next post maybe?
Toshade is a handcrafted beading business founded in Lagos, Nigeria. Using sugar beads, corals, precious stones and seed beads, the designer discovers an artistic flair she never recognised within her.
This designer happens to be my Mum and seeing as she’s refused to properly launch or publicise Toshade, I’ve taken it upon myself to do just that. I’ve been creating a catalogue of all of her creations and below are a few pieces I’ve selected to display her versatility.
From the simplistic bead stringing to the more intricate bead-weaving she explores numerous ways of manipulating beads, creating new outcomes such as her beaded links.
I’m sure you’ll like them 😉

Last weekend left me home alone as everyone else got on with their interesting lives. Armed with a laptop and unlimited internet access I began viewing numerous fashion and lifestyle blogs.
To avoid my usual ramblings lets just say thanks to this blog, I learnt to make friendship bracelets and made about 5 (2 of which Taiwo bullied me into giving her).
I particularly love this first picture because everything was hand made. I made the friendship bracelets and my mum made me the beads. I just might be getting her to make me some more 😀
