Psalm 18:3-4 KJV
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

As promised in my YouTube video, I have reviewed some bras I got from Marks and Spencer aka M&S. I've found that at my local M&S store most of the staff there are very welcoming to me. If you're reading, hi Saima! In today's bra review blog post, my houseplant Oliver makes a cameo as a prop for the bra flatlays.

The camera did not pick the second colour of this bra set well. The one at the back is not black or navy, it's maroon red. I absolutely love this colour. If you watched my Primark haul video, you are aware I made the choice to start including colour in my lingerie. However, I couldn't help it, and still picked up some neutral coloured bras from Marks and Spencer.

Generally speaking, the pros of these bras are:
  • Very high fabric quality. The fabric is thick and feels luxurious.
  • The bra straps are thick enough for support, but slender enough not to peek out or leave nasty lines on your skin.
  • The issue I have with these bras are that the strap circumference is very small,. And, as such girls out there on the thick side might have issues hooking their bras. Almost as if these bras were made only for skinny girls with big boobs. Okay bye.

See you in my next post, thank you for reading. Please share this post with your friends and family.

So I discovered a way of making your bra fit at the back if it's too short, and the cup is your size... bra extenders! I never knew about them until now because all my bras back in Nigeria fit like a glove at them back, and front. 
Hopefully this update helps someone out there. This is what they look like:

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


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

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?
