5 Blogs 5 Days: Nigerian Belle

Remember my 5 Blogs 5 Days series…? Good thing you do, because unlike you, I forgot!

I’m not very good at finishing things that I start. I tend to start off on a high and then gradually, the momentum dies until things come to a gradual halt! But in my pursuit of self-improvement, I decided I’d commit more to my blog, starting with the series of 5 Blogs 5 Days.

Today’s post is about one of my favourite blogs- Nigerian Belle. Below are a number of reasons I love Nigerian Belle:

1. Nigerian Belle is written by one of my favourite Nigerian Fashion Designers-Damola of House 38- and the blog in itself, is a promotion of Nigerian Fashion brands. I’ve been trying to ‘Buy Nigerian’ more and this blog updates me on affordable designer brands and items to purchase.

2.Nigerian Belle takes you through the daily adventures of the writer from the mysteries of her top drawer, to cross border trips to the likes of Ghana and Dubai.

3. The blog has a clean look with no distracting backgrounds or jarring colours. Simplicity is always key for me.

Hope you like as much as I do.



Ps: I want to write about 2 more Blogs. Can it be 6 days 6 blogs instead of 5? Lol

Van Cleef and Arpels: ‘ORIENS’

My flight to Lagos departed last Wednesday morning and upon arrival at Heathrow, I realised I hadn’t packed any perfume whatsoever. Considering all of my life possessions were to be condensed to two measly boxes weighing no more than 23kg each, you must understand my predicament.

Post my tears of leaving everyone behind, I wondered round the bliss that is Duty Free with the hope of finding a new scent. Such a task usually takes me longer than necessary; however this time there was one bottle that was visually arresting.

It was a crowned jewel with colours that depict the sunset on a perfect day. The interesting use of silver rather than a gold tint works in a fashion I’d never have imagined and the pearl coloured box it’s enclosed in confirms its class. The scent is one of sophistication if ever such existed and without a doubt, my Heaven on Earth. Van Cleef & Arpels’ ‘ORIENS’ is my scent for the rest of the year and regardless of how I’m dressed, my state of mind, or my mood, I’m pretty sure it’ll do all the talking necessary 😉


Ps: Yesterday I went to House 38 a new fashion label in Lagos. Their pieces were amazing. Can’t wait to blog about it.

Pps: Yesterday I also went for lunch with Fifi and friends and it was fun fun FUN! Looking forward to more of those…. until next time
