Spring florals

Sunday was a beautiful day, and my little BFF and I decided to do a photo shoot at a pretty flowery spot we had noticed earlier. My BFF just got this pink floral bomber jacket from Forever 21, and I thought it would be a perfect outfit for the shoot (yay me for my styling skills--lol). To match her jacket, I wore my pink floral kimono and turned it into a "tie top", so as to achieve the same length as BFF's jacket. We set the tripod and snap, snap, snap! 

Enjoy the photos below.

What did you think of our floral photo shoot? Yay or nay? Please share your thoughts with me in the comment section. Have a wonderful day guys!

Woman at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

March was Women's History Month, and in my own little way, I celebrated by wearing this "WOMAN" sweat shirt. Visiting Hirshhorn museum in DC to see a new exhibit, Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s was in the works, and as a nod to female artist who were included in the exhibit; Barbara Kruger, Julia Wachtel,and Jenny Holzer etc, I wore my sweatshirt on my visit to the museum.

    "Here's to strong women may we know them. May we be them. May we raise them."

Life imitates art...lol

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass - Maya Angelou

Have a great week guys!

Maxi on Track

My trip to my home country Nigeria in earlier this year was incredible! Typically, my time in Lagos, Nigeria is spent attending parties, weddings, and meeting up with friends. This time, I wanted to experience Lagos! I wanted to soak in the vibe and truly enjoy the beauty of the city that bred me. So, before I left the US, I made a list of places I wanted to visit, and Jaekel House Museum at the Nigerian Railway Compound topped my list. The reason this tourist site rated high on my list is personal. My mom grew up on this compound and my grandfather (I never met him) worked for the Railway Corporation.

Unfortunately, the Jaekel House museum which showcases the history and artifacts of the Nigerian Railway Corporation was closed for the holidays. This was a a tad disappointing, as I was looking forward to soaking myself in the 112 year history of the railway system. However, the railway compound offered an amazing backdrop for picture taking. As you can see below, the scenery was dope and my blue taffeta maxi skirt and white tshirt fit right in with the beautifully rugged ambiance.

Saw this pile of old tires and thought they'd make great props for a photoshoot
