Things in my bag➰

Hey loves,

   Today I decided to post something a little personal and the tag I chose Was The "things in my bag" tag. If you follow me on instagram then by now you know about my love for bags. If you don't then what are you waiting for? Let's connect. IG: @c_oo_kie.
   Let's get to it. So the first item in my bag is my charger because my phone is like my shadow I carry it every where I go (no jokes..everywhere).
2- The second most important item is my earpiece because I love listening to music plus It's a great way to avoid unnecessary talk with people (lol don't judge me). By the way I'm currently loving "questions" by Chris Brown.

3- Number three has to be tissues because you never know when you need to blot excess oil from your face; people who have oily skin know the struggle. Plus you never know when you need to clean stuff.

4- The fourth one has to be lip gloss and lip balm because I always have chapped lips and that's not pretty.

5- the fifth important thing has to be compact powder and a fluffy brush for all the makeup touch ups during the day.

6- sanitary pads. OK believe it or not I never go anywhere without one of those because I know how it feels to need one and there's non in sight so I decided to start being the sanitary pad saint 😁.

7- perfume, I love it when I smell nice like It's literally the first thing I notice when I meet new people so I make it my duty to always carry tester size bottles for random touch ups during the day.

8- sanitizer, the need for this can never be overemphasised It's a great way to avoid getting sick. If there's no water and soap available I easily reach out and grab my bottle of sanitizer.

9- hand and nail lotion, I always get ashy on my feet before It's noon so a tiny tube of lotion always helps me.

Well I hope you guys enjoyed this post I had fun writing it. I'd love to know what and what are your everyday staples.

Ankara flared blouse 💜🖤💜

Hey loves, it has been a hot minute and I'm excited to be posting again. So today I decided to style an Ankara piece for you lovely people and although the weather didn't want me to be great today I  still overcame 😁 thank God.

   So I today I styled a flared ankara blouse with bootcut trousers, heels, a turban and a belt. The blouse was made by my very talented seamstress @mizenyi on instagram. I really wanted to try out the flare style myself because It's a trend that definitely returned and it seemed really nice. I love the fact that it seems playful yet serious and can be worn to any sort of occasion depending on how you pair it ie  either with trousers or a skirt.

   I was going for a fun but serious look so I paired it with trousers and a turban. The blouse came with a belt but being me I improvised using the belt as a turban accessory and putting a random black belt in place of its original belt.

  I used about 2yards of material in making the blouse just incase anyone is wondering and it was really affordable too. I hope you like what I've created.  Ciao❤❤

Rant series 🗣 (1)

People come into your life trying to change who you are. Telling you who to love and who not to and even if they don't tell you who to love they direct you on how to love who you love. Like WTF is that. And the funny thing is you actually start re addressing your ways. Its just pathetic how much peoples opinions mean to us sometimes. The truth is, friends or foes at the end of the day its only you you've got because life is too short to not be yourself. You're only you in the universe and you can't be 2 period and if you decide to love with all your heart then do it but if not then just do you. Don't let people push you to make very stupid impulsive decisions just to prove a point. Don't let people decide who you are. Don't let people who have little integrity with matters of life drive you to doing crazy stuff. Surprise them.
