You are my everything
How is everyone doing? It is midweek and this means that the weekend is around the corner. The week seems to be going pretty fast and not as stressful as the prior week though I have the same work load. On the other hand, maybe I am a bit excited that I get to relax on this trip.
I wore this outfit on a night out with my hubby. I was going for a simple look while allowing the accessories and my shoes to make a statement. From the scarf to the shoes, you will see how much I love animal prints. Animal prints or leopard prints are more than a trend to me. They always add an edgy look to an outfit.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!

I am off to continue with my research paper...

Shades of blue
My weekend was spent getting some rest and finishing up my school work for the week. After a sleepless week, on Saturday, I slept most of the day before heading out to dinner with my husband. After dinner, I decided to get a manicure, pedicure and my eyebrows done. I went in with full eyebrows but I came out with barely none--thanks to lady at the nail salon...smh! At least I have MAC espresso matte and bangs as cover up LOL!

On Sunday, I was able to make one of my favorite soup "Okra soup"- I haven't had it in a while. I ended up eating so much that night I could barely get up from my seat. I am a self proclaimed foodie, but the good thing is that I don't really eat a lot of junk food. :)

On another note, this is another busy week for me both at work and school, but the good thing is that I am looking forward to some fun time with my hubby & friends/coworkers in Vegas. I am a Vegas newbie, so I am so looking forward to some fun after work in the Sin City. 

Next week is you guys have your costumes ready? I have an idea what my costume will be, but you will just have to wait and see. :)

Polka Dots

polka dots by

The weekend is almost here again, which is an exciting news for me. I don't have much plans for the weekend except completing my paper that is due the coming week. Besides that, I might go to the movies with my hubby. I have been so busy that I don't even know what movies are out or the last movie that I saw. Thinking about it..., I think the last movie I saw was "Columbiana".

Have you guys seen any movies recently? Any recommendation?

It has been raining a lot here. I keep procrastinating getting rain boots. Couple weeks ago, I saw some really cute 'Hunters' metallic rain boots, but they didn't have my size anymore. If I don't find the metallic ones anymore, I will probably go with a black patent one. :)

Recap: 10-17-11

How is everyone doing? My weekend went by as quickly as possible; but on Saturday, I participated in my first relay marathon for a cause. With barely any training, I ran the last leg of the marathon relay. I ran about 7.3 miles in about 1 hours 15mins. I was so difficult to do; but after I have completed the race, I felt a big accomplishment.

Now that the race is over, I am still struggling with a stiff and aching muscle. My thighs and legs hurts so much especially when I get up or walk around after sitting down long time. It is funny that that despite the aching muscle, I still wore my heels to work today. In all, I am beyond proud to be involved in a cause towards breast cancer.

I encourage everyone to get involved in a cause that is dear to your heart. Since this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month, don't forget to donate or make contribution towards the fight for Breast Cancer.

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
Wear your pink and support Breast Cancer.

Wrapped Up

What a busy week it has been and next week is looking like one of my busiest weeks this semester. It feels like all the professors got together and decided to pile up every assignment possible. I am swapped with tons of papers. My current motivation is my trip in 2weeks.

I feel like I have traveled a lot this year. I love to travel. Sometimes I think I could live the life of a jet setter :) I am most excited for my trip to Nigeria in December. After 4 years, I am ready to visit family and friends that I have made over the years and hopefully meet new people. I was thinking it will be nice to meet some readers from my country that have been showering me with so much love and support. Well, until then, I can wait for Christmas!

This weekend, I will be involved in Baltimore Marathon for charity, which will be fun even though I have zero training or running abilities. Anything for a cause will make me wear tennis shoes :)

What are you plans this weekend? 

Cheers to a great weekend!

Metallic hues

How is everyone doing? I was in Atlanta for 3 days for a conference, which went well. I had the opportunity to network with different companies and students. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet up with some of my readers and bloggers from ATL. Hopefully, I will get another chance to meet them again.

Now that I am back to my reality, I have a bunch of assignments waiting for me. Thank goodness that I had today off from work to catch up, but I still had class tonight. I will be spending tonight finishing up on my study cases.

On another note, metallics are big for me this fall. I am in love with silver & gold metallics--there is something edgy and fun about those hues. I fell in love with the Zara metallic skirt and shoes once I saw it. I can get enough of the shoes as you can see from my previous outfit post here.

Reconnecting With Origin

I did not even know it was October, let alone that it was October 1st, which is Nigerian Independence's day. Happy Belated 51st birthday to my lovely country, Nigerian! On that note, today’s outfit is made with an African fabric called Ankara.

Normally for weddings, the couples pick a fabric that they love and they have close friends wearing the fabric in different style for the wedding known as “Asoebi”. There were more than 20 bride's friends in this same fabric, but in different styles. During the reception, everyone wearing the above fabric accompanied the couple as they danced into the reception.

For me, I decided that I wanted to have a 70's appeal wearing bell bottoms. I sketched the style and had my tailor sew the outfit. Again, I wanted something to contrast the busy fabric, but still keeping the 70's style in mind, so I came up with the idea of making a bustier with a metallic fabric.  I paired the whole outfit with my Zara metallic pumps. This fall, I am all about metallic!

On another note, my exam went well. Thank you all for the wishes. Now, I have to pack for my mini trip to Atlanta for a conference. I will love to meet some readers and bloggers in ATL. Send me an email, maybe we can grab dinner and drinks on Friday after my conference.
