What to Wear to a Wedding as Summer Ends and the Harmattan Begins

Quote of the Day: While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.- Genesis 8:22.


In some parts of the World autumn/fall is gradually creeping in, and in others (like the one I’m currently in) the rainy season is coming to an end and the Harmattan is slowly annoucing its presence. Now that I think of it, this post should have been rightly titled "what to wear to a wedding this end of summer as the seasons change." I LOVE the Harmattan, it's my favourite season! As a child I hated it; mainly because I had the worst sensitivities during this period' thank God that's all in the past.




How are you coping with the change of season?

While shooting these photos, this dress gave me all sorts of feels. It ended up looking like spread outs for a glossy magazine, all thanks to God for bringing my super photographer friend Kaally my way. This girl gets me y'all.

I feel like a Princess every time I put on this dress. My mom bought it for me when she went to Turkey. I searched for them and tagged them to my post on instagram here so check it out. They have really lovely clothes.



The gown is a floor covering sleeveless wonder. It has a royal blue belt that extends all the way to my calf when knotted into a bow. It has the cutest detailed floral embroidery that reminds me of spring.
The inner linen is very soothing on my skin and isn't itchy. 

The linen is thick enough to cover whatever colour of underwear you put on (yes, I experimented with a couple of colours).





I ALWAYS wear this gown with super high heels because I don't like giving myself extra work when washing it, after it literally sweeps the ground I tread on.
 
I feel this gown is great for transitioning weather so you won't die of heat if your environment is warm. I definitely recommend it for an outdoor wedding or event. And, yes you can set the dance floor on fire wearing this gown.





I almost didn't post this picture. But as I finished typing this post it seemed best for a sign out.
This is me wishing you a beautiful weekend.
All my Love,
Lily of Nigeria.

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…

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.

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 you have …

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…
