Taking Off...Buen Viaje!


Hello beautiful people! How is your week going so far? I was up until almost 12am deciding what to pack for my trip to Puerto Rico. My packing technique always includes laying out the way I plan to wear the clothes and sometimes trying it on before I finally put it inside my box.


 I love those blue Zara flats; so they will definitely be my go-to flats for running around. You will also notice in the pictures that I packed a lot of shorts for the hot weather including jeans, prints and florals.

 Can't forget my stacks of "arm candies". I love accessorizing whether I am wearing a simple shorts and tank top or swimsuit on the beach. The accessories you see in the picture is a mix of JCrew, BarIII, and H&M.
 In these last two pictures, you can see some of my beauty regime. I always have a bottle of sunscreen, Neutrogena moisturize SPF15, Neutrogena Deep Clean scrub and make up remover. Also, I love my stacks of fashion magazine. I always take about 4-5 magazines. Sometimes, I buy more at the airport especially international magazines

La isla de encanto!
Adios :)

Modern Traditional

African print3

Hi everyone! How was your Memorial Day weekend? Did you do anything special or travel?

African print jacket

I had an amazing weekend. Besides attending a wedding on Saturday, I finally had my party yesterday, which was awesome. I can't wait to share the pictures with you guys. You can keep up with me on Facebook or Twitter for possible sneak peeks.

Since I didn't have any celebration for my birthday or graduation, I decided to combine both celebrations together. The party took place at our place with about 25-30 friends and some uninvited guests, which was a bit annoying. Despite that, I didn't let that mess up my night. We all danced, ate and talked until 3am. I didn't go in to bed until almost 4am.

Regarding my outfit, it was made with African ankara fabric for a wedding I attended a week ago. I came up with the idea/design and my wonderful tailor made it. Usually, for most Nigerian weddings, the couple picks out a fabric and have their friends wear it as a uniform for the wedding. If you remember, I applied the same concept to my wedding here.

I have barely slept since yesterday and I also had my hair braided today, which hurts as hell; so I am heading straight to bed.

Thank you for always stopping by and with your sweet comments

Runners' Shorts

Hello everyone! Hope you had a stress-free day!

Just finished watching American Idol and quickly started working on this new post. I am not sure if I agree with the winner Phillip; but then again, Jessica has a lot of opportunity and the "IT" factor to go far. Again, most prior winners that we have seen on American Idol seem to barely make it after the whole Idol crazy. Well, congratulations to Phillip--all the best to both!

PAO_4008-1794602054-O

It seems like every TV show is ending or in their season finales...from American Idol to Glee & Revenge. I still have a lot of episodes to catch up on before I watch the final episodes, so that should keep me busy until I discover more shows to watch.

On another note, I bumped into another reader today at work. I just heard someone screaming, "Excuse me" as I walked through the hallway until I finally turned around. Never in million years did I think I will meet a reader at work. Thanks Jasmine for approaching me with sweet compliments. It was a pleasure meeting you. I am always appreciative whenever I meet a reader :)

Accordion Statement

Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday/Tuesday everyone! How was your weekend?

Hope you all had a fun filled weekend. My weekend was one of the most memorable time in my life. Yes, I am officially a Masters Degree holder. If you follow me on twitter or Facebook, you will know that I was so excited and nervous on Saturday that I was awake at 5am even though I didn't have to be ready for my graduation ceremony until 8am.

My weekend was definitely a fun filled one. After my graduation ceremony and lunch with my family, I attended a friend's wedding reception, which was fun. On Sunday, I had also attended a friend's graduation dinner. There is nothing like being in the company of great friends & food. I am so excited for all my friends that graduated.

The fun weekend continues next weekend. I have another wedding again to attend. In addition, I will be celebrating my birthday plus graduation with a party on Sunday. I am so ready to dress up and dance surrounded by wonderful friends & great music.

PS: Over the weekend, I met two lovely readers. On Saturday, I met a beautiful/sexy mother of four Oyin. My mouth dropped when she told me that she has four kids--I hope to have such fab body like her after having kids. Then on Sunday, I also met Abitoye--soft spoken & sweet. Thank you to both ladies for your support and love. It was a pleasure meeting you two.

Spring Florals & Mint

Spring Florals & Mint

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I think I am really getting used to having some free time since school is over. Each day, I get used to not being in the library so late that I now have time to devote to other things that I have been putting aside. Last week, I assisted in a photoshoot in DC, which was fun even though it was a last minute request.

Spring Florals & Mint

Over the weekend, I spent quality time with my mom since she was not going to be around on Mother's Day. On Sunday, I attended a bridal shower, which was fun. At the bridal shower, we played a game of unscrambling  words related to wedding, which I totally sucked in--I could barely unscramble honeymoon LOL! You will not believe what I thought some of the words were--SMH!

Spring Florals & Mint

The next two weekends are going to be busy ones, but fun at the same time because I have my graduation on the 19th. That same day, I also have a wedding. In fact, the next two weeks, I have weddings to attend, which is exciting. I will be posting pictures of the outfit made for one of the weddings using "Ankara" (African) material.

Spring Florals & Mint

My birthday is officially in 30mins...yayyyy! :) I Thank God for his blessings over my life and the amazing husband, family & loved ones that surround and support me...also for the love & support I receive from you guys--I am grateful :) Happy Birthday to ME!!!! :)

Mother's Day


 Words cannot explain how much I love this woman, my mother. She has been the most loving, caring, supportive woman that I have ever met. She has given up so much for me and nothing is big enough to say thank you. Even a day is not enough to appreciate her love. I will forever love her.

 To my amazing mother-in-law, I couldn't ask for a better mother...love you a lot!

I thank God for these beautiful mothers that I am blessed to have :)

Mom, if you are reading this, I LOVE YOU from the bottom of my heart!


Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful and wonderful mothers. You all do an amazing job. Words and gifts can't repay you mothers for your kind hearted, nurturing, and tremendous love. I hope to join you soon ;)

Happy Mother's Day!
Kisses & hugs
Stella

Mint Garden




How is everyone doing? This month is going by so fast. I can't believe my birthday in next week Tuesday, May 15th and my graduation ceremony is that same week on Saturday, May 19th.




For the past week, I have been looking forward to the Met Gala and finally it took place yesterday in New York. I wasn't disappointed at the styles & fashion. The Costume Institite gala is like the fashion industry's prom. I was so excited to see the risks and the gowns that you will assume that it was my prom.

Some of my top picks from the Met Gala 2012 include Rihanna (minus the hair...I wish she could go back to short black hair), Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Stone, Diane Kruger, Solange Knowles and Kate Bosworth.







I also took some pictures with my friends Nife and Michelle






 Who were your favorites from the Met Gala red carpet?

Outfit: H&M skirt (similar skirt here), Zara top (similar here) and Zara shoes, H&M panther ring, Macy's Bracelet, Vintage bag

Wishing you all a fabulous day!
