Blues

Not everyday glamour puss, sometimes practical.

You know when you have those serious "we are going shopping"days that you know not to wear anything that is remotely uncomfortable. This was one of those days but for some reason I didn't get the memo on how uncomfortable converses were so by the end of the day I was STILL in pain. These hats are SO necessary in Miami because the sun doesn't even play. 

So you wont see much of my face in this post.

Sorry.

Hola Miami

So after what feels like then longest year of my life I am now on a month long vacation with my family in Miami and I am LOVING it! We are staying at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach and right now, its everything it hyped up to be. So far I've done nothing but sleep, eat, take pictures of the sunsets and shop!

I am so nervous about the state of my hair after these million braids but I love them! I just hope my hairline survives. 

We went sightseeing today so I wore this chevron print jumpsuit, a very necessary hat and sandals. I think prints are God's gift to dark skinned people because they just look so good against our skin. So when in doubt print it out!







Shoutout to my baby boy Tam for this shot, I'm so proud

Audrey Hepburn's Granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, is Harper's Bazar September cover girl

If you've seen my old movie spotlights, you'll see that one of my faveee movies is "funny face" with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire! The movie is based on the photographer, Richard Avedon, who took most of Audrey's iconic photographs. 

So you can now imagine my excitement when Audrey's Granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, is the september cover girl for Harper's Bazar, channelling Audrey from "funny face" and was photographed by Michael Avedon, Richard Avedon's grandson. I don't know about you but I'm so excited to see this!

In the article Emma expresses her hesitation to go on with the cover because of the fear being compared to her breathtakingly stunning grandmother but she went on with it anyway! It's obviously not my place but I am so unbelievably proud of her for going through with it and for the harpers Bazar team for putting this all together. Audrey left the world with all her grace and elegance and I can only imagine how much pressure that would put her granddaughters under.

 It I just love everything about this cover and what it symbolizes. I won't lie to you and say visually it's my fave Harper's Bazar cover but it definitely means to most to me.

Mother's Closet Knows Best

Whenever I'm stuck with anything in life I run to my mother because she knows everything. The same applies to her closet, whenever I'm struggling with what to wear, I run into her closet because it knows best. I couldn't find what to wear to the Fashpa Day Out event so I snuck into her closet and "borrowed" this heavily sequinned and beaded jacket that sorta looks like Virgos lounge. The jacket is a party on its own so I dressed it down with jeans and a crop top and sandals.

The Spa Day Giveaway



So its been a very long year for me so far. Having to work from 7:30am everyday for the past 6 months has started to take its toll on me especially when the earliest lecture I ever had at Uni was at 1pm and like I always say, I am NOT a morning person. I didn't even realize how stressed I was until one day my darling mother took me out for a spa day. I got  a lemon body scrub, a steam bath and a massage (all for N6000) at the HSF Wellness Center and it felt like a slice of heaven for me and my broke NYSC pocket. So I want to treat a reader to a yummy spa day for the same lemon body scrub, steam and massage at the amazing HSF Wellness Centre in Ikoyi. They have the best selection of teas I have ever seen and they are mean juicers too!

To Enter

  • Follow me on instagram @feyi_adesanya
  • Leave a comment on this post stating why you deserve this spa day
  • The person with the best "stressed out" reason wins!
This giveaway is only limited to my Lagos readers :( and it closes on the 3rd of August.

Christmas in July

So as a contributor for the Fayrouz L'Original site I was invited to the L'Original Show. I got my invite 2 days before the show and I had NOTHING to wear. Luckily for me, I had a dress with Tope of FnR/Frockit Rockit that was going to be ready on Saturday morning. I wasn't quite sure of the dress-code for the event, it said "Be Original" and it was a very formal dress...wedding worthy...worthy of my wedding or christmas lol, but my mom and Tope advised me to wear it and so I did.

I went with my homies Toyin & Afam and on getting to the event you could tell that the dresscode was so confused, it ranged from jeans and sandals to ballgowns and tiaras and I felt thoroughly overdressed at first but I quickly snapped out of it because when you look good you should enjoy it for yourself and not care about what people think. I don't know about you but I would rather be overdressed than under-dressed anytime any day!
