Personal Style: Prints and Wide Leg Pants.

No shame in my recycling game! 

I wore this top (it has a pair of matching pants) to church on my birthday about two months ago 

Don’t you just hate when a picture is taken from a high angle making you look so damn short.

…and I thought to myself as usual that I have to find a way to recycle this outfit without looking exactly the same. Voila! 

I’d be wearing the pants in another post – that’s 3 outfits for the price of one (technically, cos I already had these other stuff)

The outfit was made by Yours Truly… I’ve been working on my brand for a while now and I cannot wait to show you guys when it’s ready. 

The pants and shoes are Zara, the purse is from Bershka


Personal Style: Dress up/down The Slip Dress. 

Who loves this Boudoir trend as much as I do? (This includes Pyjamas, slip dress and lingerie-inspired tops) Show of hands.

As “demure” as I can be, I think if it’s done right it can be really tasteful. I mean you don’t have to just wear your sexy-times-outfit in public just ‘cos you’re following a trend. The problem with that is, it’s probably gonna come out tasteless and you haven’t embodied the trend, you’re just following it.

Beauty: Henna Art (And A Giveaway) 

I realized I don’t do a lot of beauty posts here, which is weird because I spend quite a lot of time painting my face on the weekends (I hardly wear makeup when I’m working or on duty weekdays).

Asides from makeup, I appreciate good skincare and beauty regimen because inner beauty doesn’t get Instagram likes. Hahaha I make myself laugh

Today I’m focused on Henna tattoos as I have admired for soooo long and I haven’t been in the right place and had the time to go get it. Fortunately for me, last week was perfect cos my very good friend, Casey, does ah-mazing henna and she had a booth at this game I went to. 

She was very patient with me as it was my first. Haha. 

I went for a simple design incase I chickened out (not a reflection on her abilities as she does even full arm/back tatts). But I loved it nonetheless. 

Anyway, if you’re based in Lagos and you love good henna, you’re in luck as I’ve teamed up with Casey to have a giveaway. 

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Follow @demuredenike and @henna_dd 
  2. Repost the photo above
  3. Tag both handles and hashtag #hennaddgiveaway in the caption. 
  4. The post with the highest likes wins. 

Good luck.  xx
