Bucket Purse


Thank you all for the sweet comments from the last post. I am still in Nigeria enjoying my last week here. There is so much going on here today. Many people are protesting the removal of fuel [gas] subsidy–almost everything was shut down today including inbound and outbound flights within Nigeria.

The economy and standard of living is pretty bad and I continue to pray for the betterment of the country.


The outfit was taken while I was still in Enugu. I went out with my friends Kasie, Chukky, and Frank for the after party of the wedding, which was fun. I got to see a lot of friends and even some people from here in DMV area. What better way to rejoice with the new couple, old friends, chicken suya, and music.


I had to take these pictures prior to leaving because I didn’t want to carry my bulky EOS Cannon Camera 🙂


Chilling with friend Kasie before the night began. She was my sidekick throughout my visit in Enugu, Nigeria…such a true friend since I met her in 2001


 Outfit: Express sequins shorts, Forever21 tank top, Topshop bag, Aldo shoes, Michael Kors watch, Macy bracelet


Have a lovely week ahead!

    I can't believe how flawless your make-up is I had to stop wearing make-up after 1 day it was just melting off.Annoying with the strikes, my mum is supposed to be home tomorrow, got to Owerri Airport and had to turn back.Enjoy your last week, hopefully the strikes will be done by then…xhttp://followmein5inchheels.blogspot.com/
