PHOTO OF THE DAY

Happy New Month Lovelies! To think that this is the fastest year ever, wont be a lie! But the good news is, I am hurrying to meet my quarterly blogging target before the "Ember Month" Hope you are meeting up with you goals and target. 

I saw this picture on @genevievemagazine Instagram handle, and I thought to share! Here is the caption "genevievemagazine:This is Ladi Kwali, a legendary Nigerian Potter. In 1980 the Nigerian Government invested on her with the insignia of the Nigerian National Merit Award (NNMA), the highest national honor for academic achievement. 

Her picture appears at the back of the NGN 20 note.


Sometime last week on Ahmadu Bello Way, I was caught up by a TV station Vox Pop, and I was having fun getting all the puzzles thrown at me by the presenter correctly, until he asked me the "Money Question" I have learnt alot about finances from Nimi Akinkugbe and I never thought I will fail the money question.
This post and the money question is about the great personalities on our Nigerian currency. Isnt it surprising that we spend money without finding time to know who is on the Naira note? If only I got that last question from the Vox pop correctly, as I did the others, I would have walked away with 5000naira. How well do you know your currency? The story and personalities behind the Naira? 
Do you have interesting photos from travel locations, Art or any interesting Scene and will like to share, Kindly send as an email to Ujulilyan@gmail.com

STYLE - ALL BLACK EVERYTHING X HOW TO SLAY YOUR CURVES IN A BLACK DRESS

Its very amazing how an outfit can e spiced up and transformed into a whole new different style with the use of a simple fashion accessory. The waist Belt, High waist Pants / skirts, Maxi, Midi and Bodycon dresses are my favorites when it comes to accentuating my curves. Every woman have curves, some are voluptuous, others are moderate, while others are feminine must haves! If you know what I mean *winks*

Some weeks back,I rocked a long bodycon turtleneck dress to host the 5th Edition of the

MONDAY RANDOM - THE LAW TO PROTECT OR TO PREY! MY ORDEAL WITH KAI OFFICIALS.

The Law as I was taught, as I have always known and what it should be is meant to protect Us, Correct Us and guide Us. A state or group of people can’t be governed if there are no laws to abide by, everyone will be a victim of their own animal loose minds. Thanks to the Law for keeping us Sane in an insane world and protecting us from ourselves!
The Law is there to put Constraints on Government Powers, Protect Fundamental Human Rights, Enact Regulatory Enforcement, Ensure Civil Justice, Order and Security

In Lagos Nigeria, the Regulatory enforcement Law is a different ball game as we have lots of Law enforcement officers who enforce Laws, dance in impunity and wallow in the state of being above the law that they themselves are supposed to enforce. I doubt that most of them even have a clear understanding of what their roles are, as soon as they put on their Uniforms, they become lords of the streets. Respects to the Very Few and Honest ones who are out there to do their jobs diligently. In Lagos Nigeria, We have the KAI, FRSC, POLICE, LAWMA, LASTMA and please add the ones that are not here.

PRODUCT REVIEW - MY 5 FAVE THINGS IN JUNE

Happy New Month Everyone, It is the month of Fulfilment, the Seventh month of the year 2016! Long live you all! Last Month was good, I got lots of products, Some for Reviews and Some I bought, So I will like to share My Five Fave Thing that worked for me last month.

MAC MATTE LIPSTICK ROUGE A LEVRES : I am not a fan of the colour pink, but this lipstick from MAC Cosmetics, which was gifted to me from @ExquisiteMagazineng  is subtle on the lips, I am still wondering why they call it "Matte" , guess it's because it lasts longer, I like to use it to create my ombre lip look. It smells good and contains Vitamin E, it doesn't leave the lip feeling or looking cracked.

HAND MADE WIG : Wigs are now a girl's best friend! They say its Diamonds, but a ball in hand is better than 10 in the bush, till I have the diamond, Wig is now my best friend. It helps me groom my edges, grow my natural hair and pour water on my scalp. I really love this wig of mine, I like my hair and hair extention so full, because it gives me some height and presence Lol! When I got this weavon from the market 2 months back, the heat in Lagos Nigeria was Intense, but I really wanted this hair, so my hair stylist suggested she turns it into a wig for me, so I can wear it as center,or side parting, whenever I want. I rocked it HERE

THE EXPRESSION ALBUM - By Glowreeyah Braimah, They say one who sings once prays twice, I like to listen to This  early morning inspirational gospel Album, most morning, it gives me all the inspiration after prayers to start my day, it helps me meditate and give praise to my maker. The hit track in this album is the popular "Miracle Worker"

ANKARA JOURNAL - By Handmade in Africa, Many thanks to Nene the creative director for this affordable and Stylish notepad. "Writing it down is one of the first steps to remembering and doing it! My daily to do list, favourite quotes and notes are in my fancy Journal. It is so colourful, it can pass for a hand purse when I am going out and don't need a purse, but I need to jot down stuffs.

SSTUDIO SIGNATURE FACE KIT- I love this face kit because it is so compact and contains the basic face kit for nude look. With this kit, your Powder, Lipgloss, Blush Eyeshadow and a mirror for application are all in one compact case, it is easy to carry around and the powder is shimmering, I love it! it is affordable, you can get it from Sleek Studio Flagship store located in VI Lagos Nigeria.

STYLE - RESTYLE AND REROCK X ONE DRESS TWO WAYS

Anchoring the 5th Edition of The Lagos Makeup fair (the biggest makeup fair in Nigeria) has been very fulfilling, I met lots of people and also got lots of contacts, so I look forward to more hosting opportunities in the future! Say AMEN somebody!
I have never been one to advise wearing of jeans on stage to anchor an event, but If you live in a city like Lagos where I reside, you wouldn't want to dress up lookin like the side effect of power outage! It was an indoor Exhibition Event on the hand, So dressing up to Anchor such an event should not be stressful, all you need is throw on some Chic style, since you do not want to dress to distract the audience, you also want to make people listen to you, take you serious, and stand out as the MC. 
I am on my way to make things happen!

So Here is what I wore to Anchor Day 1 of the #LMUF5.
