Looking for what to wear this summer? My favourite casual outfit of the day might Inspire You

Quote of the Day: Art should disturb the comfortable, and comfort the disturbed. 

Hi guys! How was your weekend? Mine was a bit productive in that I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to take pictures for the blog. I didn’t use a photographer though, I made use of what I had. My camera and a tripod stand I purchased a while back for my YouTube channel came in handy.
What casual clothes do you find yourself wearing lately? I remember this day like it was yesterday. We had made up our minds to ditch the couch potato life and explore a bit of our city. Call us crazy because we didn’t leave the house until it was almost three o’clock in the afternoon. Earlier that day we had a brief, unconventional meeting that come what may, we must tour our city. Everyone was finally ready just before three, so we set out on an adventure I will never forget. We were definitely favoured by God to get passes to where we went to. To say that we laughed and had fun is an understatement.


The weather was really hot, so I threw on a navy blue tank top and these super comfy embellished boot cut (semi-maternity) jeans from NEXT. I can’t over stress how super comfy these jeans are. They also have this cool feel (I couldn’t believe I’ve had this treasure waiting to be worn in my closet for close to 3 years).


Do you have a dress, clothe or piece of fashion you’ve been waiting for the right moment to wear?
Let me tell you a secret. You see, I had never worn these jeans since my mother gifted them to me because, I was…how do I put this…er...fat. Yes, that’s the word. I felt if I wore them, I’d just end up looking like a rolling ball of fufu. 

 But, with more than 10KG off my body forever to the glory of God alone, I decided to give them a try. And guess what, (although now a bit too loose), they fit! The waist was a bit too loose so I had to whip out my thickest belt to hold the jeans from creating a scene. Omo see compliments… chai, God thank you o.



How did your day go? What plans do you have for the rest of the week?
Because you've been good, here's a bonus picture.


Thank you so much for visiting, and reading. I appreciate the fact that you keep coming back. Please don't forget to tell your friends and family about Lily of Nigeria.

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Hello Lovelies, Welcome to today’s post. It rained cats and dogs yesterday so the weather here in Lagos is subtle and cool. What’s the weather like where you live?

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if
