Great Minds - The Return of the Power Puff Gurls

Last weekend, I woke up early-ish, knowing I had a brunch date with my friends (remember, we ended up at Mico's Chicken and Waffles). Usually, I try to plan my outfits ahead of time, so that I'm not scrambling around trying to figure out what to wear. On this day though, I hadn't decided what I would wear, and I didn't even have an idea. You know how us women can be - closet full of clothes, and yet nothing to wear. I was having that moment.

Anyways, I decided to get on Instagram while lazing about and I saw that I was tagged in a comment. I went over to see what it was, and this was it...

We unconsciously keep wearing similar outfits! @stylefash25 stop it o! Were we twins in another lifetime? This is the 3rd time it's happening o. Madam what is going on? @berrydakara come and see something mbok.

BLOG TALK: Blogger Envy

If you are a blogger, than chances are that you have had a case of Blogger Envy at least once in your journey. What is Blogger Envy you ask?


Well, it's this nagging feeling that gnaws at you when you visit one blog or another, and all you can think about is how that blogger is better than you. It can manifest itself in different attributes...

That blogger has better content...
This blogger has better photographs...

This blogger gets more comments on their posts...
Those bloggers have a wider audience...
This blog has more entertaining posts...
That blog is more intellectual than mine...
Her blog design is so much better...
She wears more high-end clothes than I can ever dream of owning...
His style blog is so much cooler, street-style wise...
That blogger's makeup is always on point...
This blogger is always so happy...
Their spouse is so much more supportive of their blog...

And the list goes on and on and on and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

GIVEAWAY - Savvy & Chic Hair and Beauty Hub

Hiya!

The Giveaways keep rolling in!

This time, we've got lovely shea butter cups from Savvy & Chic Hair and Beauty Hub. They opened about a year ago, with the intent to promote HEALTHY HAIR. The salon is an offshoot of Dab's Naija Hair Can Grow blog, so this goes to show you what blogging can do in the long run. Anyways, one of the features of the salon was their Whipped Shea Butter for hair and skin. It came in different flavors/scents, and now they are available for sale for just N800 per cup, or N2500 for a box of 3!

Don't they look edible?!

Berry Southern-Polka Weekend

Hello Double D's!

It's Monday again! Are we saying "Booooooooooooo" or "Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay?" I guess it depends on what your week ahead looks like, and whether you like, love, or loathe your job. Whatever your situation, I hope you have as good a week as possible. :)

So, what did I get up to this weekend? Well, Cakes and I had plans on Friday for a hawt date. I was going to get home after work, relax a little bit, get refreshed and wear somn flirty. Then we would get dinner, maybe have drinks afterwards, and catch a late night movie. Well, life happened. We went to visit my aunt who I lived with during my NYSC year. There was a bunch of traffic afterwards, so we just chose to go and grab dinner at Four Points Sheraton. Since we didn't go home, there are no pictures from the buffet dinner at Brazzerie Restaurant in Four Points. Sawry :( I enjoyed the food though, as it was Seafood Night.
Since I don't have pictures from Friday, manage this one from yesterday
