“Life is like a good black and white photograph, there’s black, there’s white and lots of shades in between” – Karl Heine
I’ve always believed there was somethin’ special about black and white photos.

Wore this the first day I arrived on my vacation in New York.
New York is one of my favorite cities in the entire world. The fast pace, the boroughs, the fashion, everything about the place just makes me giddy. I was really fortunate, blessed, and altogether ecstatic to return once again. (And man did we make the most of it!)
I really love these shots! The easiness of the outfit contrasted with the busyness of the city in the background makes me swoon! (Photo cred goes to my sis)

Ready to mob the city!
Later that night I lived out my dream of meeting the queen herself, Rihanna! Seriously one of the best nights of my life! I can’t even explain to you how excited I was. We got to see her when she visited Greenhouse Club in NYC with her best friends Melissa and Leandra. I love them!
My sissy was lucky enough to get a pic with her before she jetted off! Lucky Duck!!!!! (How does she manage to look so perfect even off screen?! ….I think I am ever more obsessed now. She is undeniably the baddest)
June definitely marks the start of graduation and wedding season, and of course graduation parties! One of my sissies had the privilege of graduation from my alma matter, UC Davis over the weekend so there was no doubt I had to go and support.
What I Wore:
I love the color of this dress! The blue is so electric! I also like how the zipper is long in the back.
I also love these black aviators. I have been looking for a “signature pair” of sunglasses and I found these at a random store in the mall.

Sidenote: Theres few greater feelings than a new weave, got me feelin like a new woman. I missed my long hair!
I loved editing these pics, can you tell?
Back when I was in school, I was part of the Nigerian Student Association and the Nigerian Student Dance Group and we started an annual Nigerian Culture Show. It’s always fun and interesting to see how your legacy has played out so my sissy and I went to watch and support.
Wore this fit to celebrate the Nigerian in me. =]

It was a struggle trying to find a high waisted swim suit, let me tell ya! I originally wanted a hot pink bottom but it was sold out at both TopShop and American Apparel and I couldn’t find any hot pink ones on ASOS…but I ended up falling in love with this mint one, especially the way it pops on my skin. (if I see a pink one though, im snatching it up quick fast!)
Big Sean did his thing, I was hoping to see his gf Naya Rivera though…girl crush alert!
