Leather Peplum Jacket

Hey Beautiful People! How are you all doing?
Outfit Details
Top: StyleMint
Scarf: H&M
Jacket: Forever 21
Pants: H&M
Shoes: ShoeMint
I recently picked up this stunning faux leather peplum moto jacket from Forever 21 and it is my favorite purchase this Fall. It was a bit pricey at $39.80 but it is definitely worth the price. The jacket is so soft, comfy and I absolutely love the peplum detail. I already have so many ideas on ways to style it with more pants, skirts and dresses. For today's outfit post, I paired with a classic striped tee and a pair of pants in this season most popular color "Oxblood." I added an animal print scarf and my favorite pumps from ShoeMint. I will be busy in the next 2 weeks because I have Final Exams coming up, so I apologize in advance for the lack of posts. I will be back with regular outfit posts after my Finals. 
Thanks for understanding and visiting my blog.
 Have a wonderful day!

Fringy Black Friday...

Outfit Details

Jeans: Forever 21
Blazer: Urbanog.com
Bag: Ebay
Fringe Boots: Chinese Laundry (via Ross)
Every Black Friday for the past 4 years, it has become a tradition for my mom and I to hit the mall as early as 3am to find some good Black Friday deals. This Black Friday was not an exception; my mom always says that Black Friday is the best time to shop and I totally agree with her. We spent the whole morning going from store to store and we found some great deals. I didn't get too much cos I wanted to do some online shopping when I got home. I will be featuring the pieces I got on my blog soon.
The is my go-to boots for this season; I wear them to school and anywhere I know I will be doing a lot of walking, so it was perfect for a day of shopping at the mall. I paired it with a casual denim on denim outfit and added a printed, elbow patched blazer and a brown bag to complete my look.
Did you go Black Friday Shopping? Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy your the rest of your weekend!

Giving Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
A couple of days ago, Anna from Fash Boulevard did a post on giving thanks and appreciating the little things in our lives. So in honor of Thanksgiving I want to share 10 things I am thankful for...
God in my Life:
I am very thankful for having God in my life; I wake up everyday strong and ready to conquer the day and I believe that God makes it happen.  I have not been through much struggle in life but I have definitely had some hard times and I thank my heavenly father for helping me through those tough times.
My family:
I am very thankful for having a wonderful family, my mom especially (I love you all...:). My mom has being the best mom ever, I see her everyday juggling working full time and taking care of her family. Sometimes I wonder how she does it all and I am super proud of her. I really appreciate having a family to call my own and share special moment with them.
My friends:
I am very thankful for having such wonderful friends in my life. Both in Nigeria and here; you all have definitely made an impact in me. Although I have not spent as much time as I would love with you all but I am just so grateful and happy to call you my friends.
My health:
I am thankful for having a safe and healthy life. I am the type of person that rarely gets sick, in fact I have never been admitted in a hospital for any sickness. I don't really exercise (ha ha! I am working on it) I just try to eat healthy and make safe health decisions. 
My education:
I am very grateful for having the opportunity to be educated, there are so many people in the world that would love to be educated but do not have the opportunity. I know sometimes, I complain about school work, my professors and how tough it is to be in college but at the end of the day it will all be worth it when I achieve all my dreams and goals.
My job:
I am thankful for having a job that supports me. I am able to buy my textbooks, shop and get everything I need with the whatever money I make from my job. 
My blog: 
I have wanted a blog since 2010, but I was too scared and shy to make one. I finally found the courage to create a blog last spring and it has been one of the best things that has happened to me. It is very committing and time consuming but I love doing it so I have no problem creating the time for it out of my busy schedule. My blog has really helped with my self confidence and I did't know what to expect when I started it but I am so glad I have a special place in this social media world that is just mine!
My cellphone:
I was an iphone girl till about 2 yrs ago when I changed to my HTC Inspire. Some of my friends say I am addicted to my phone but I don't think I am...LOL. It is just always with me and I could do everything I want on it. It is been acting up lately so I cannot wait till my contract is over so that I can get the new iphone 5 (Woot! Woot!!).
My laptop:
What can I do without my laptop? Absolutely nothing! I am so thankful that I have a laptop which enables me to do everything I want on it. I do all of my school assignments, connect with the world, shop and of course do all my blogging duties on my laptop.
You! My wonderful followers: 
I am so thankful to have you all in my life. Your sweet comments and just the fact that you take time to check out my blog means the world me. Words cannot express how much I appreciate you all. I hope to continue inspiring you with my posts as you all inspire and motivate me to blog. 
Have a wonderful thanksgiving and enjoy this special day with your family and friends.

Hello Kitty Forever!

Hello Beautiful People! How are you all doing?
I am so sorry for the lack of outfit posts, I have just been super busy with school and I will be for the next 3 weeks. As the end of the semester is fast approaching, I am swamped with projects, presentations and exams and that's why I have not had time to take pictures for an outfit post. 
If you don't know before, I am such a big Hello Kitty Fan and I love all things HK. I have been anticipating the launch of the Hello Kitty Forever 21 Capsule Collection for a while now. It finally launched yesterday (November 16th) and the collection is so much more than I expected. Hello Kitty Forever is filled with t-shirts, sweaters, leggings, dress shirts, dresses, bedding, and accessories. It also has lots of bold prints and colors; and the prices are totally on point (between $4.80 - $29.80). I am so in love with the collection and I want a piece of everything...LOL, but I am just gonna grab a few pieces.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from the collection: 
Check out the rest of the Hello Kitty Forever Collection HERE and let me now what you think about it. Thanks for stopping by and Have a wonderful weekend!

Floral Splatter + Studs..

 Hey Beautiful People! How are you all doing?
 Outfit Details
Shirt: Forever 21
Leggings: H&M
Rings: JewelMint & Forever 21
Boots: ShoeDazzle "Carolina"
 Way back in September, I went to my local H&M store to pick a couple of pieces from the new fall collection but everything was sold out in my size. I found this leggings as I was leaving the store; I bought it without trying it on and I am so glad I did. The legging is so soft, comfortable and I absolutely adore the prints.
 I have worn this legging several times but I never took pictures wearing it. This past week I wore it to school and I styled it with a studded collar shirt plus a pair of studded riding boots.
Thanks for stopping by, and Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
