So 2011...

This is the last day in 2011. I can't believe 2011 is over and a new year begins in a couple of hours. I can definitely say that this year has been good to myself and family. I am also grateful for the opportunities and partnerships from Jadore-Fashion.


I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for reading, supporting, emailing, tweeting, and facebook-ing with me and all that revolves around Jadore-Fash3ion. The amount of love I get from everyone that visits my site is overwhelming and I sincerely appreciate you all. I hope 2012 brings us even more fun, great fashion ideas, and partnerships. Again, I hope in 2012, I get the opportunity to meet more of you because I have met some amazing people through blogging.








2011 is pretty much over...Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Dinner With Friends

Prior to my departure and Christmas, I planned a dinner with friends to catch up since everyone has been so busy with work or school. Again, since I was traveling it was nice to reunite before the new year.

Love the decor of the restaurant: classy and chic!

Currently blogging from Lagos, Nigeria--it is ridiculously warm. I am still trying to adjust to the 6 hours time difference. As I blog, it is currently 1am  3am here and I have to be up pretty early because I have a flight to the East coast to see family, friends, and for a wedding.

I was having second thoughts about this dress, but after some adjusting and convincing from my friend B and hubby, I decided to "work" it -- love Aqua clothes :)

Airport Ready

I am currently at my next stop Houston waiting on my delayed flight to Nigeria. I am already tired even though I still have about 11 hours again to go. At the moment, I will keep blogging, browsing, and eating ;)

On another note, when it comes to traveling, it doesn't mean you have to compromise your style. There are ways to travel in style and still look stylish, comfortable, and chic. For me, traveling doesn't mean sweat pants. 

www.jadore-fashion.com

On some occasions, I love traveling in heels, wedges or flats, but at the same time, I still keep it comfortable. Like today, I went with my Zara brogues, black ankle denim pants, a simple v-neck white shirt from Forever21, Zara Mustard blazer and my H&M leopard scarf &amp and hat. I always travel with a scarf--it is like my comfort blanket. Again, I always wear or have a hat to camouflage my messy hair after a long flight like this one :)

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and you got all or most items on your wish list.
I hope to get my internet working asap to be able to blog again before the end of the week because I have a lot of pictures from my Christmas dinner to Christmas outfit to post :)

Sequins

Sequins pants (here

Another week is almost over and Christmas is just around the corner. As I prepare for Christmas, wrapping gifts for friends and family, I can't wait to board the 12+ hours flight to visit my homeland Nigeria after almost 4 years. I am super excited and nervous at the same time--don't know why the mixed emotions.

www.jadore-fashion.com

My luggages are so full that I will need extra manpower just to zip it up. I confess, I am an "over-packer". I could barely decide what clothes or shoes to bring along with me knowing that I can't walk back to my closet to switch my clothes. Then again, one good thing is that I packed a lot of summer clothes--yes, I can't wait to escape this cold, windy weather in the East coast. ;)

www.jadore-fashion.com

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I started my weekend with a Christmas dinner at my school, which included faculty and students. On Saturday, I had a lunch date with my coworkers, which went well. One of my coworkers told me that he had to go through my blog to figure out what to get me for Christmas and he did a good job because I am loving my Zara gift card :)  On Sunday after church, my husband and I went to see "Mission Impossible"--Love it!

Inspirational Outfits

This is my inspiration for today! I love leopard and animal prints--love when two prints (animal prints or floral prints) are mixed well & effortless just like the pictures above.

 Happy Monday and have a fabulous day!!

How was everyone's weekend? I spent my weekend catching up with friends. On Saturday, I spent the morning cooking and getting things together that I need for my vacation while chilling with a friend of mine. With all the chatting and cooking, I ended up not going to get my nails done. Late Saturday evening, I  packed my stuff and headed to visit my friend who lives almost an hour away.

www.jadore-fashion.com

When I got to my friend's house, we pondered whether to drive another fifty plus minutes to attend a happy hour event or just chill. From one conversation to another, we ended up staying home while attempting to figure out how to open a moscato bottle without a corkscrew -- this was hilarious. We  Googled "How to open wine bottles without a corkscrew" and some funny YouTube videos showed up. It was crazy how we tried to open the bottle following the instructions of the YouTube videos. We placed the bottle in tennis shoes and hit the bottle on the wall -- hilarious. We still could not open it

Outfit: Zara pants & shoes, H&M top & coat, Aldo bag, Michael Kors watch, Macy's bracelet, F21 rings

On Sunday, after church, my friend and I did a little hopping from one store to another before grabbing  something to eat. I haven't finished buying christmas gifts for family and friends and my christmas tree is still up without ornaments.

Have a lovely week!

Random thoughts



Hello beautiful people! I am officially done with school--so excited! Class today was the longest ever. I didn't leave school until about 10pm waiting for the rest of the class to finish their presentation. Actually, class typically ends around 8:50pm, but today was exceptional. The good thing is I can officially get some sleep and not worry about what papers, cases, or group meetings.

Today's post includes pictures that I took over this year, but I was not able to post it. All these are random pictures just like my thoughts tonight. And since I am exhausted, I will keep this post short and sweet :)

This was during  our summer trip to Dominican Republic
Playing photoshot with friend Bisi
Lovely parents :)

Have a lovely day!
