Finding, loving and owning your personal style…Part 2!

Part Two of this contemplative series focuses on the books and people/person who most influenced my style growth journey. The first book I read that completely opened my eyes to the transformative power of fashion and it’s ability to help you explore who you are was ‘Elegance’ by Kathleen Tessaro. Proof of the lasting effect this…

Finding, loving and owning your personal style…Part 1

The only thing harder than being 14 is being 14 in 2016…this is a hard time to be a teenager. I remember feeling so awkward and heavy in my body, hating all the clothes I owned and most of all, hating the lack of control I had over being able to choose what I wanted to wear….

MTV Asia’s cute host and model Hanli Hoefer is next under the spotlight. Half German and Half-Peranakan, she’s the daughter of a magazine writer and travel photographer, but made waves on her own as a model when she was 19. She’s now an MTV Vj and has hosted MTV’s World Stage Live twice. I have…

Naija-Spore Style Inspirations! EZINNE CHINKATA

This week I’m turning the spotlight on a really fun Nigerian stylist and designer called Ezinne Chinkata. She’s got a killer body and a fun sense of style. Her style is certainly out there  – bold, colourful and very youthful. Stylists always push the envelope, and while some of her looks are a little creative…

Naija-Spore Style Inspirations! Velda Tan

Velda Tan, co-founder of popular online store ‘Love, Bonito’ has recently come to my attention due to her clean, comfortable style.

I’ve been a little M.I.A recently! I’m FINALLY off maternity and back to teaching (more on that soon) so I’ve been busy readjusting and making sure my little C.E.O, the Chairman of our house is happy and secure. There’s also been  A LOT in the news recently, some quite grim, which begs the question…does fashion,…

Welcome to a new series – short, fun and full of style and life inspiration. I’ll be crossing two continents, focusing on Nigerian and Singaporean women whose style inspires me.

Singapore Fashion Week 2015!

I’m so mad that I’m missing out on Fashion Week! But I’m away throughout all of it so I have a good reason. I’ve been so ready to sink my teeth into Singapore’s best designers. I’m not a fashion obsessive but I do think that beautifully tailored clothes prepare you for your best self. They…

BRUNCH OUTFIT #1

As a recent celebration of losing a few more pounds, I treated myself to a little shopping moment. I say moment and not ‘trip’ because after trying on a few items in a size larger than my norm, the venture came to a swift end! Still, I’m quite happy with my purchases and they are…
