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 comes with a customised bra inside, thank God it was my cup size. All my Naija aunties that read this blog I love you
Have a beautiful week.
Peace and love,
Alexandra.

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

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
