I would start by saying the year 2012 was a great year for me; there were happy moments, sad moments, moments I don't ever want to witness again and moments that I wish could last for ever. In all these, I am most of all grateful for being alive and well, grateful for my wonderful family, loving friends, and the faithful readers of this blog. As we step into the year 2013, I wish you all a prosperous new year with less drama, filled with love and all things excellent.

Here are some moments in 2012 that I am grateful for, these pictures show what I've been up to this year, and sheds a little more light into what I hope to achieve in the coming year. Enjoy scrolling through the moments of my 2012

This was what I had for dinner for several weeks, it was worth it. I hope to stay healthier in 2013

Earlier today, I was at the wedding of a lovely lady who is very close to my heart - Anucious. It was a celebration of love between two people who clearly love each other, and I am glad I could be part of this joyous occasion.

In Wana's words, ''The original idea for this collection was birthed from a daily visit to vintage bars and coffee shops. The collection has pieces you wear out to  grab a coffee, go dancing, basically all things fun, retro, chic and wild. Thigh high slit skirts, party tops and shorts! Its sequins, silk, jersey, chiffon and leather! #WSarmy, Lets have fun!!''

Merry Christmas lovely people, I hope you had as much fun as I did today. Spent the day with loved ones, had food and drinks in excess (I'm typing this in a state of food induced coma), laughed so much as I shared old stories and private jokes. Hung out with old school mates, some of whom I hadn't seen in about 2 years, we had a lovely meal at Orient Lounge.

Never heard of the place before today, so I was excited to see it. Apart from the fact that the food came very late after we ordered (we waited for over an hour), it was worth wait; the food wasn't bad at all.

On Friday, I was at the engagement ceremony of my friend and namesake Adeshewa, and her hearthrob Taye. It was a joyous occasion as they were both surrounded by friends and family. And for me, it was like a USS reunion as I saw old classmates and friends I hadn't seen since grad.

Hi guys, I'm sure we all have this one skirt or top or shoe that we like so much and wouldn't mind wearing everyday of every week. Mine is this cream sleeveless dress shirt I got almost a year ago and which I have just refused to let go. Why should I, when it practically goes with anything I put it on? I have put together 3 ways in which I have worn it in recent times, I hope you find the shirt as likeable as I do.

Hello guys, here is this week's creative mind - Nory, a MUA with class and sass.  Follow her on this journey as she gives you a little peep into her world. 

''My name is Nory, I've been a makeup artist for 3 years. I just started doing makeup one day, I guess. I've always had some interest in changing people's faces. I don't believe anyone needs a lot of makeup to look good, you just need to apply it right. I went to Unilag and studied Engineering (shocking, I know), but I've always been an artist (I paint). Makeup is about expression, a pink moist lip can tell the world that you feel girly and feminine that day, as a matte red lip shows your confident power.''

Hello guys, I hope we all had a fantastic week? I want to start by saying a big THANK YOU to all of you for stopping by, I really appreciate it; wouldn't be doing this if you weren't here. This was what I wore to work on Friday and I couldn't help but feel like a nomadic herdsman with a modern, girly twist in my ensemble. The only things missing were a long stick to hang my hands across and a wide straw hat, check on the pictures below :)

As I earlier mentioned in a post, I changed jobs and this new job requires us to be corporately dressed from Monday to Wednesday and then corporate-casual on Thursday, with Friday being the only day you can decide to wear what you like. In order to make my blog much more interesting and hopefully interactive, I have decided to do a style post every week detailing what I wore to work that week and where you are likely to get something similar if not the exact thing. I hope this comes in handy for you guys :)

Here is what I wore on Tuesday


Hello Lovelies, hope you all had a fruitful week? My week was all sorts of awesome; in my quest for a photographer to help me with my style posts on the blog, I was introduced to Busola, a fellow USS (Unilorin Secondary School) alumni. The first feeling I had was one of great relief even before meeting her at all, anyways, the meeting went fine and here is how she describes herself in her own words :)

Let me start off by apologising for the very long silence, there is really no excuse for that, but I would briefly like to state that it was due to the fact that I recently changed jobs. Do I hear congrats? Thanks. OK  now that that is done, lets get back to where we are here - today's post.

I decided to start a segment that showcases people working in fashion; designers, stylists, make up artists, hair stylists, photographers, and the likes. I recently discovered that a lot of people don't really know what goes on behind the scenes in the fashion industry, and I have taken it upon myself to educate you in my own little way.

The first ever Creative Mind (as I want to call them on here) is Ijeoma Joy Ike, she's a fashion illustrator with quite a number of works credited to her. She is based in Lagos, and she studied law from the University of Jos, Nigeria. In her own words, this is how she describes what a fashion illustrator does " basically as a fashion illustrator, what I do is conceptualize designs and bring them out through art (sketches and colours), therefore an illustrator handles the creative part of fashion production".
