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.

EVENT - ALL THAT WENT DOWN AT THE #LMUF5 IN FEW WORDS AND MORE PICTURES.

TIPS - 4 BLOGGING ESSENTIALS TO START UP A BLOGGER BLOG

The Blogger blog interface is my favourite, it is flexible, it is easy to use, its Graphic user interface and design template is self explanatory and user friendly, you somehow need little or no graphic skills to set up a blogger blog. Even though it is easy to link your domain name to your blogger blog, Ever wondered why I haven't even gotten a domain name for this blog! I feel comfortable with this.

I chatted with a friend of mine who resides outside the country, she said she likes my blog and will need help to start one. I asked her why do you want to start a blog, she said "I like to write, I want to teach and I want help people with my articles and intellect" . In one of my blog mentor's webinar, she said a blog needs to have 3 things - It has to be Useful, Interesting and Entertaining - Mattie of www.mattieologie.com

STYLE - HOW TO DRESS FOR BRUNCH X BRUNCH WITH TRACY NWAKPA

It is mid week and I thought to share outfit idea for Brunch. Styling for a brunch can be formal or casual depending on if the brunch is indoor or outdoor. It could be in a Hotel for a family get together, girls/ guys timeout, or album listening party or a more formal event.
Brunch In a Shift Dress
I was at a brunch earlier this month- Brunch with Tracy Nwakpa, I got invited by my PR friend, creative director at Euphorique PR and it was a casual brunch for Entrepreneurs. First I was torn between looking Casual yet glam and chic, since the brunch was for 11am and an indoor brunch.
