Hellooo Harmattan :)


Its laughable when we say things like Fall fashion or winter fashion.

We do not have Fall or Winter in these parts, our weather is different so it makes our seasons different..
While we have the raining season which is the farmers delight because its good for planting etc.


At this time of the year we have harmattan..!

While there’s the rich smell of dust & sun to dry your clothes in mins or few hours depending on the fabric.

Harmattan is dryer, hazy, dusty, windy & hotter.
The temperature drops in the mornings its cold or very cold depending on where you are with slight fog or heavy fog..!

Its hot in the afternoon with a bit of air but its really hot..!
That you would want to stay hydrated by taking cold liquids all day.

The temperature drops again in the night.. Sometimes its sooo cold that you don’t need the fan/ac .

Looking Stylish For Less…

We usually believe that owing luxury/ designer clothing or accessories makes us stylish, that’s not true..!


You can be stylish by choosing the pieces in your wardrobe carefully & inexpensively.
That goes to say that you can look a lot stylish for less.


Have a detailed plan on what you would like in your wardrobe they go source for it in a discount store or thrift store, you might find them in OK (secondhand clothing) shops.

Most times its your ability to drive hard bargains that gets you the best deals.

Be Fabulous.
