Oi oi girls! Ready for a Friday OOTD? This is one of my favourite ensembles, perfect for a casual night out with the gals. On this particular London night, I went for a few drinks with my bae Miss Fu. I love this outfit because it’s easy-breezy-comfy, with just the right amount of sass. Lord knows I love the … Continue reading OOTD: London Nights
Hey boos! This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Felabration 2015 #TurnUp in Accra. The event was a fabulous way to honour the legendary Fela Kuti’s birthday.

Hey boo hey! How you livin’? So let’s dive straight in. I recently told you all how much I love Valentine’s Day. This tends to confuse people, since I am the quintessential single girl about town. It’s not like I don’t like menz no more (I’m not #deliverdt). Idris just hasn’t arrived with my bride … Continue reading Fifty Shades of Galentine’s Day

Darlings. I don’t know what to tell you. It appears that I’m obsessed with winter and all winter-related activities. I blame the fact that I grew up in the tropics! Even after all these years, there’s still an element of novelty. Of course, I also blame Disney’s Frozen. I know I wasn’t the only one screaming … Continue reading Winter Warmers: Ice Bar London
Dahlings! Adjpants here, reporting live from the Winter Wonderland that is currently London. I’m normally not a huge fan of Christmas. I always spend the festive season in the tropics, and while it’s fabulous and hot and lush, it doesn’t always feel that Christmassy. This year for a change I’ll be staying put in London, … Continue reading Winter Warmers: Southbank Christmas Market
There are few things I love more than Nigerian food. My dreams are filled with towering mountains of jollof rice, rivers that run red with palm oil, and forests of emerald-green bitterleaf. I was blessed to grow up in a home where both Nigerian and Ghanaian delicacies appeared on the dinner table. Whenever I visit … Continue reading A Taste of Home: 805 Restaurant, North London
