MAKE UP SESSION : BM PRO


I had imagined that I'd take 3 weeks off  to just slum it and kick back but that hasn't exactly been the case, and I'm super grateful for that. It's been straight to work since my second week back and I've had some pretty cool experiences so far. One of such experiences was getting a make over by BM PRO, a make up company owned by international make up artist, Banke Meshida Lawal. I got to work with  BM PRO, while I was standing in, for the Creative Director of the fashion house I work for, in an Ebony Life Tv SS15 runway production. The production  was a segment of the network's fashion focus production and it was as much fun as it was hard work. I had a blast with the make-up experience and I loved the  process almost as much as I did the end result. My hair was by Motions Hair and it was an all round great experience.

 I'll be sharing some pictures from the production sometime next month on the blog. Enjoy the rest of your week!

GWEL AN MOR RESORT : CABIN FEVER

The  Gwelan Mor resort is a 5 star luxury resort in Cornwall, that a couple of friends and I, had the pleasure of visiting towards the end of summer.  We spent the weekend in a 3 bedroom lodge that slept six and the lodge, was incredibly beautiful in it's simplicity. The decorative style of the interior, was more homely than anything else, with lime and red floral print curtains that gave the cabin such a bright and domestic feel. The cabin was cozy yet spacious with lighting perfectly suited to the warm colour of the knotty pine wood, complemented by the equally warm hue of the Sofa.  I felt like I just moved into my dream cabin home.

CAFE DES AMIS : REVIEW

Cafe des amis is a small French restaurant tucked away in a corner of Covent Garden. The brasserie styled restaurant was one of the last places I dined at before my trip back and I have to be honest, I have a lot of mixed reviews about the restaurant. Two of the first things that set the tone at any restaurant, before the meal is the service, and the ambiance. The restaurant was tidy and the decor style was  minimalist and there wasn't much that was particularly intriguing in the way of decor. 

However, I did like the bar area and there was something tasteful,  about the minimalism. As for the service, we had a mixture of really sweet staff and border line hostile staff, which was quite a turn off because like most people, great service is everything to me particularly, when I'm paying for an experience. Now to the main focus of our visit; Food. The pasta linguine from the brasserie menu my friend and I opted for, was pretty average but that may be just because i've dinned Italian one too many times, to know better than to order pasta at a French restaurant. My friend's chicken dish from the main menu was just perfect. The chicken was properly cooked, tender and moist. 

Now as for the desserts..... I have nothing but praise! The Lemon Sorbet was probably one of the best sorbets I've had in a while and the chocolate fondant which was the dessert of the day, was just divine! The overall presentation of all the meals was very good. All in all the experience didn't exactly make my top ten and I probably wouldn't be returning, any year soon.

KNIGHTSBRIDGE DAY

 Good evening everyone. I'm sooo excited to be blogging from my home in Lagos Nigeria. It feels good to be back, getting ready to start a new chapter of my life and just spending time with my family and friends. On the downside It's been soo hectic getting all my gadgets up and running, so I'm glad to finally be posting from a laptop again. This post was one of my last shoots in London and it was taken on a day out in Knightsbridge first, outside the Max Mara AW15 personal shopping event at Harvey Nichols, which I attended with friends from work, and then after a relaxed evening out at a pub. My look was very much about textures, layering and a little bit of colour. I liked the idea of pairing a jacquard print playsuit with a two-toned leopard print coat in a bright hue, further accented by a white pleated top. The look was very rich and texturally robust and I'd  have to say: it was one of my favorite looks in a while!
