Hey guys ,
Welcome back to my blog, today’s post features me wearing a Nigerian brand “House of Irawo” owned by Mrs Abby Ikomi (creative director) and her three lovely daughters Dola, Ama and Anire who hold positions as Strategic marketing Advisor, Financial advisor and Brand consultant respectively.
They have been in business for a little over a year and I’ve spotted them on Instagram for a while but saw them in full swing at Arise Fashion Week, I went over to the store to take a look at what they had ,picked a few pieces for the blog and decided to style it for you guys to see.
House of Irawo had their first fashion show at the just concluded Arise Fashion Week . I fell in love with this hooded top ( its detail , fit and finish is really good )and decided to shoot in it. I paired it with a pair of jeans and a slingback low -heeled Zara shoes.
I would also style this with a pair of palazzo pants and higher heels too. Do you like and how would you style it ?

Welcome back 🙂 Its always good to have you here .
Today’s blog post is about the products I’m loving right now. Since I started working closely with my dermatologist, I’m more concerned about what goes into my skin . Beyond the surface , there is indeed more that you can do to achieve the best skin ever .
You still have to start from the basics which i call ‘ECTM’ Exfoliate, Cleanse, Tone & Moisturize. You can never go wrong .
Not like I don’t know this, but do you know that a good nights rest (with the right products is an easy way to get your skin glowing ? How many of us get enough sleep ? There was a time I tried it and I saw the results, but somehow..life happened lol.
I’m still working on the process of getting at least 8 hours of sleep a day . I still struggle with under eye bags and some fine lines but that’s okay . No pressure .
Anyway, here are the products I’m currently using.
You Skin Vitamin C serum by YouSkin ~ I use a few drops as a moisturizer after applying sunscreen and before my makeup. Its important to use a sunscreen to protect your skin . /Check them out here HERE
Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle cleanser . I use this day and night right after aking off my make up, Its deep cleaning and gentle on the skin. Its not drying and a little goes a long way : I got it on recommendation by Hilary Rodriguez, I was looking for a good cleanser/wash for oily skin but not too drying at the same time . Get it HERE
GLY/SAL 5-2 cleanser : On recommendation by Dr Psalmuel of The Aesthethic Clinic, I got this product, its great for acne prone skin and I use this especially when I have back to back shoots which involves constant makeup application. This product smells like baby soap and I love it lol . Dr Psalmuel is the man to see if ou have trouble with your skin , trust me on this one and thank me later . Get it HERE
Since I’ve got extra sensitive teeth , the idea of getting my teeth whitened has been thrown out the window…lol , I’ve attempted this twice and I cried my eyes out . When I was much younger , I got the Pearl drops white drops off the shelves at the supermarket, its basically a toothpaste that gently whitens your teeth, I stopped using it for a while and re-discovered it again , at least my teeth isn’t brown ..lol .You can get it at any supermarket .
The Jamaican Castor oil is great to keep my hair moisturized and as you all know I recently braided my hair, I’m terrified i’ll lose my edges so i’ve been moisturizing my edges (Temple hair) daily using this SOS Hairline from Dark & Lovely .
Finally, I added a new fragrance to my collection, the Oud Ispahan by Christian Dior . This fragrance was launched in 2012 and its so amazing . I got introduced to the fragrance last year by Eve of @theluxeoutlet and its definitely one to have . It’s unisex. top notes include Labdanum, middle notes Patchouli, base notes sandalwood , argan(oud) & rose . Its a powerful fragrance and a little goes a long way .
Do you have any products you are currently using, is there any from the above mentioned, share with me . I hope you enjoyed reading.

As a lover of perfumes, I was invited to #OwntheParty Lagos , an event organised by Puig to celebrate the launch of 212 VIP Black by the incredible Carolina Herrera as well as appreciate their retailers .The perfume was launched in the summer last year . The event was on the same day Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde was celebrating her 40th so I attended both events . I wore a stunning Maroon Red lace Midi dress which everyone loved . I wanted to wear something that could work with both events and I would blend in nicely .
The dress was designed by one of my favorite designer Moofa designs , paired it with a mini Zashadu purse and Marni Heels. I slapped on some make up and off I went .
212 VIP is actually loved by a lot of men and its always in their collection so this is a great addition , there is something cool about the fragrance. According to the Puig Brand manager ,Edith Mahachi, Carolina Herrera represents elegance, class and sophistication.
The perfume is available at all Essenza stores nationwide.
It has a really good rating of 4 stars on most sites .The top notes include absinte, annise and fennel, middle notes is Lavender which and the base notes are musk and black Vanilla musk .This was a really fun event , the guests rocked like crazy . Enjoy the pictures .
