6 THINGS I HAD IN MY CHILDHOOD BEDROOM

Quote of the Day: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he grows, he will not depart from it.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Hi Babes, welcome to today's post. From my analytics, I know you like posts like this. So, instead of our traditional weekend Life Lately post, or Taking Stock post, I thought it would be nice to share some other things with you.

By the way, during my time away, I had a lot of experience which I do not take for granted. Follow me on instagram here and turn on post notification, to be the first to see what I mean. Without much ado, let's get down to business (I just started singing that mulan song).
Wall Posters/Pull out from Magazines and Books: I had a lot of wall posters...

A Simpson Blanket: This blanket saw me evolve y'all. I'm usually emotionally attached to blankets. I've had my current one since high school.

A Souvenir Merino Ram from Israel I named her Sheila, nuff said.

Stacks of Nature Magazines: Courtesy of my daddy, mainly from National Geographic. He subscribed to TIME and a host of other (I looked forward to each magazine). Reading was a part of my childhood. I learned to read early and would read everything that crossed my path. When my parents noticed this, most of my presents became books. My parents would leave books on the last shelf of the library. By the age of ten I knew about most of the animals of the world and their respective habitats.


Archie Comics: LORD knows I loved the characters of this comic brand; Betty, Veronica, Reggie Mantle, the infamous Jughead and the host of others! Funny how I don't have time for Riverdale, maybe because I hate the suspens of seasonal movies.


Natural Hair Accessory Kit: I went to a Catholic school, and we weren't allowed to add any foreign hair to our natural hair. I had a box containing lots of clips, beads and bundles of rubber thread because my mama was determined not to let me out of the house without my hair beads, at least they allowed them.

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…

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 …
