What I wore to my Friend's Call to Bar Dinner

"Please remember, no African time. I want all my friends to arrive early so we can take pictures." She said


Hi guys! Welcome :) how's your day going? Before today's post let me fill you in a bit on what I just did. I watched the entire live session of the OJ Simpson Parole; I even tweeted it. In a way, I was happy for him(in that he can spend his last days in the midst of his family and friends).

A lot of people haven't quite forgiven him for the jury's decision in his 90s trial (very obvious from the way some CNN commentators flogged the already litigated issues).
Comment your thoughts on what you think of the approval of OJ Simpson's parole..
I can't believe it's one week already since we turned up for my colleague's call to Bar Dinner. If you follow me on instagram, you'd have seen a sneak peek of today's post. Yup! I've been posting pictures on instagram for a while. I couldn't more proud of her.

The event took place the Crossover restaurant Wuse, Abuja. The food was over the moon delicious. Next time my family comes to Abuja I'd take them there for fancy dining.
I totally recommend Crossover restaurant Wuse if you're looking for a tucked in fancy(not over the top) place with good food. That garlic fried rice was lit,at the end of the dinner, your girl was pregnant with a food baby!

Last week, because I know how extra PHCN/AEDC (Power companies) can be, I woke up extra early to bring out, and iron two gowns from my box (I hoped to select one later in the evening after work).
In typical fashion, I ended up with neither of them. I wore one that had been hanging in my wardrobe for a while now and it didn't even need ironing(so much for waking up early).

Have you ever been in a situation like this? Comment and let me know.

The gown is from a Turkish fashion house(no need to talk too much, y'all know Turks don't play with embroidery and details). It weighs a ton!
Asides the fact that the inner chemise like thingy kept shifting one side, I loved wearing it and had no regrets whatsoever. The gown has a customised bra inside, thank God it was my cupsize(yes nosey, I'm not wearing a bra in these pictures). All my Naija aunties that read this blog I love you
Have a beautiful week.
Peace and love,
Alexandra.

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?


Today’s post is not a fashion post per se, it’s more of a lifestyle post. If you follow me on Instagram here (please go and do so now), you may/may not have seen my most recent post; where I gave you babes a heads up on today’s post. Please turn on post notification at the top right corner of my page so that you never miss another post from me, the new algorithm is a mess but there’s hope.

1.Call them: Try to reach out to them. Nothing brings back memories than hearing your friend’s voice. Distance should never be an issue in friendships that mean that world to you; unless you see this as an opportunity to cut off ties with that person.

2.Make A Plan To See Them Eye To Eye: You can pick a mutual location you both enjoy, or one you have been longing to visit and meet up there. TIP: You can write out a list of things you’d li…

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day: Seek 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 Instagramyou 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 discussed it with a trusted family m…

Top 4 Tips and Things I Learnt from Posting Everyday on Instagram
