Lookbook | Prowl Then Pounce


So I'm sitting in the study area in college trying to get inspired to write this blog post, with black coffee running through my veins, music in my ears and excitement gliding through my fingers. I still have no idea where this article is going but I guess that's the fun in blogging; It's unpredictable. So grab a cup of tea, a few cheeky biscuits- or celery- and get comfortable, this is going to be interesting.
Today Roberto Cavalli's son (of the same name) liked a picture of mine on Instagram, which brought me right back to reminiscing on who I was 3 years ago compared to who I am now.

Lookbook | Buried in gold



Hey beautiful people!
So I listened to Taylor Swift's new song 'Shake if off' properly for the first time today and I'd like to shamelessly admit that It's been on replay ever since. I even got annoyed when I couldn't find a download link for my phone before my mother ushered me into the car this morning. Let me tell you a little story  that might explain to you why my obsession for this song isn't going anywhere. Believe it or not, I used to be a very anxious person; anything could have made me nervous from someone making fun of me to simply walking past people on the street. 15 years ago I moved from a rather large country in Africa called Nigeria. Although I do tend to lie to peculiar strangers on nights out. "Where you from?" "Libya" I say with a condescending smirk. None of them knew where that was and if I'm honest their confused faces were quite amusing.
Those humorous scenarios aside, throughout primary school I did not feel different from my peers at all, I was one of them and they pretty much accepted me even though I was the only foreign girl in my class. At this stage I felt Ireland was my home and often indulged in the Irish culture, learning the Irish language in school, playing traditional instruments such as the accordion and violin and entering several Irish competitions such as the Feis. Hell, I couldn't have been any more Irish. Until the year I advanced to secondary school when one girl decided to ask the teacher in the midst of religion class what I was doing here.

Lookbook | Kindred love


Hey beautiful people! 
I feel like this blog is becoming a little too monotone and if you know me, there's nothing I despise more than monotony. Being the girl who lives in such a mundane city, I find my creativity is stifled and if I want to find inspiration I must sift through the exclusive world of the internet. Let me start off with a little story of how uniformity is ruining the world I live in. It all started when I put pen to paper and filled in my CAO form; choosing Commerce as my number 1 preference. Like everybody else I waited with baited breath for the leaving cert offers to be released and to my (faux) surprise I was off to UCD to obtain a degree in Bachelor of Commerce. So I packed all of my things- everything from my collection of 20 blazers to a keychain I had no intentions of using- moved to the big city and jumped with excitement as I visited the UCD campus for the very first time. Being the fashion addict that I am, my heart raced at the thoughts of witnessing people's sense of style in college- I mean hello? Nothing rings the door bells of freedom more than having no uniforms. It was not long before I found out that the Lochlainn Quinn School of Business would be my home base and as I entered the opulent glass building, I knew I belonged. But oh boy was I wrong.

Lookbook | Autumn Blues

Hey you! It's good to see your face around here once again. How are you guys doing? I hope you are well. YES I'm finally back with a new article for you. The last 2-3 weeks have been fairly hectic for me as I've just returned to University and I'm also currently busy organising my 4 month stay in Canada next Spring. I'd like to say my course modules this semester have captured my uninterrupted attention but that would be me perfecting my skills of lying to future employers. 40% of it is not interesting but I can't wait to be able to utilise it one day and hopefully create something good out of it. Anyway today we're going to discuss Autumn/ Winter trends such as floppy hats, how to rock body con skirts, outfit details as per usual and a little something about cheating life.
