Carmen, House Party, Shoes, Wind & Gutters.

My friend Carmen came to visit from London: woot woot. Female friends are rare in Lagos so I'm excited to have a girl to hang with.

Sometimes i joke we're blonde & blonder, dear heaven this night was straight out of a movie. I secretly wonder if my life is scripted. In fact my weekend was filled with made for TV moments.



Close up on Carmen: Isn't she stunning!!! She's so funny love her to bits.

We were going to a cocktail/ house party on Banana Island. So to be safe I picked a formal looking dress that was also sexy aka short. I assumed the party would be indoors: WRONG. Geez we were outside, the wind was blowing, I had to stop standing or accept my new profession as a flasher.  The party later moved inside and all was well with the world, i could dance, stand, and move around.

Me: look closer on the bottom right of my dress, gosh the wind wasn't my friend
I redid my hair in Nigeria: not bad huh *yea yea i know looks exactly the same as last week* BUT it only cost me  about $25,/ N4000.--- Compared to ATL i can do my hair every week, they take out your extensions, wash it, relax your hair, wash, sew, etc OMG!!!! CRAZY. Finally something cheap in the city.


LOVE her shoes!
My cousin Arinze came with us to the party: woot woot! I think this is the first time he's on my blog. LOL readers keep tryna snatch up my brothers, well now here's my cousin lol.




So after the house party Carmen, My brother Chuka (not seen in the picture), and I were about to head off and party in the club with all our friends. On my way into the car i stepped in a gutter!!! A FREAKING GUTTER!!! My new shoes, My whole right leg, up to my knees!!! I was sooooo repulsed I asked them to drop me off at home.
Poor shoes def didn't see that shit coming when I took this picture earlier in the night

luckily or unfortunately only my feet/ shoes were covered in black (I'm still telling myself it's grime and mud, but i can't help but think of pee and other gross stuff). The good news is my shoes currently look normal, and I don't seem to have developed any scary disease on my leg: AMEN!

well that's all folks, I hope i won't be a Marni (ala "You Again" (2010) ) this week, cause all week I felt I was channeling her.

Here's Marni & my fave scenes for those who haven't seen it, so you can get my cookie analogy



that's all folks :)

  10. OBSESSED WITH THOSE SHOES! They are incredible lol, I'm super jealous right now! I can relate with the gutted thing- the first time I went to Nigeria I remember playing with my cousins in their backyard- our ball went over the neighbour's fence so we had to go round to get it. Somehow I got distracted and didn't see where I was going... one second I was looking up at the others running ahead, and the next I was knee deep in a gutter. The worst bit was the walk of shame back to my cousins house and the strange looks I got from the locals.... NEVER AGAIN! :(

  38. ANSWER TO SHOES QUESTION

    Ive noticed a few qtns from anonymous about my shoes, you didnt add an email or email me personally or i could have replied you since.

    I did a post around July during my NY trip where i featured buying them. I got them from OFFICE at the Topshop/ Topman building in Soho, NYC. their by OFFICE.

    I hope this helps, and from the above comments some ladies have referred to it, or one found them on sale.

  39. sorry I dont have the code, or product number, I threw my boxes when I moved.

    I did a search for Office London, purple shoes. and apparently b4 its was 85 pounds, and it came down to 25 pounds.

    I couldn't find the exact shoes, but there's a similar one here:
