Hey guys, I tweeted a few days ago stating that I have been having body pains recently, which made me miss blogging for a couple of days, well this will explain it all. I and the hubby have been working out lately at the gym and trying to eat healthy because when it comes to food, we eat mostly the wrong things "drooling". It's not our fault that they taste so good. 
We decided to start this journey because we want to be more fit, cleans our system and try to add a little healthiness to our diet. 


I'm sure some of you can agree and understand my struggle with eating healthy. I am not really much of a fruit person as much as my husband is, so in order for me to corporate well I try to mix different fruits. It makes it look colorful and attractive for me to eat it with so much joy. 


I love drinking natural fruit smoothies though, especially when its mango smoothie!! but now I have been mixing different fruits just for different tastes and excitement. I get bored easily for things I'm not too used too or love, so switching it makes it more desirable. 

In the smoothie: Pineapple, strawberry and Kiwi

Salad: Lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, sardine and Syria bread (the bread is empty plsss) 

Our trainer has been drilling us like a piece of meat, it's not been funny. I have missed 2 days now, cos my body needs to recover.

Are you on a cleansing / healthy journey, if so, how has your journey been and what meal ideas can you give us to add to our timetable?

XOXO

These days, casual looks have been my thing. I just have so much on my mind that I really don't want to wear anything that would make me feel uncomfortable, but heels are not optional. I don't know if It's only me that feels this way once in a while, I guess I'm in that season right now. 
Sometimes, I just wanna be a kid again, don't wanna worry about grown up things like working, planning etc. When I look back in my teen years, I realized I really over exaggerated the idea of being an adult. If only I had a time machine, that would be the greatest gift of life.

Hey guys, hope you had a great week! I'm so happy the weekend is here, it has really been a busy and confusing week for me, I just need two days to mentally tell me I need to rest. Today's post is quite interesting to me because I am wearing a "Bubu" which is a loose flowy full length garment we wear in Nigeria, mostly elderly women wear them out. I'm sure my African/Nigerian readers would be thinking "What!! she is wearing a bubu" lol well yes I am, it is all thanks to my aunt. She gave me this Bubu and told me it is an elegant bubu and there is a way to carry it to show elegance, it doesn't have to be worn the boring way. I was lost for a bit, but when I dress up, I feel in love with it and wanted more.

IAMISIGO "White Noise" Resort collection features monochromatic pieces, as well as individual white & black overalls, trousers, dresses and other pieces.
According to the Artistic Director & Owner of the brand, Bubu Ogisi – “Going back 15 to 20 years ago when we sat in front of the non-remote televisions then, waiting for a programme to start all I remembered was staring into the movement of the black pixels and wondering why they were confined to this box
She also added that after the splashy, bold colors of the past few season, they decided to opt for a much more cleansing palette with head-to-toe stripes and clean black and white looks for resort.
The rectangular grid inspired the rectangular shaped Bubu shirts, Bubu crop and Bubu Dress. The slits along with the mesh detail and uneven side pieces were inspired by the sequence of serially uncorrelated random variables with a zero mean and a finite variance. The uniform probability distribution formed the base for all the oversize pieces sticking to our core brand values of being minimal but yet audacious.
The irony of such a scientific contrast for something that is commonly seen to be “nothing” gave them the right rules to create their Resort 2015 collection “White Noise”. 
See the collection below.
