TALES OF A FASHIONISTA…

LAGOS! WHY SO BEAUTIFUL?

If you google the ideal holiday destination the typical suggestions you’d get would be Barbados, Miami, Dubai or Hawaii *yawns*. For me my ideal holiday destination is Nigeria!!! You’ve got everything google suggests and more all in Lagos! Beautiful scenery, holiday sun, mouth watering food, bubbling nightlife, sexy beaches and fab hotels! Spent Christmas in Nigeria (as you do lol) and tried to capture some of these things i just listed in pics…

Does this not scream perfect holiday destination?! Well in my opinion it does lol! Sundays are spent chilling at private beaches. The cutest beach house ever, it’s surroundings is so gorgeous too. This picture does plenty justice in illustrating the Sunday beach vibe…

Saturday afternoons are spent chilling by the pool with your fav girls and champagne cocktails! Perfect remedy for a hangover, which was usually the case as Friday nights are the wildest in Naija, but that’s another post in itself lol!
*Blowfish Hotel, Victroia Island, Lagos*
I’m a big foodie! Food was something I struggled with most in Nigeria! Had to caution myself or else i’ll take up two seats when flying back home lol! But i’m a sucker for presentation, this totally blew me away! Flavours were awesome too!

I’m not a huge sports fanatic but developed a new found appreciation for Polo. Its a gentlemens sport, a really fashionable one. The uniform is Ralph Lauren from head to toe! How trendy! lol!

Another way i’d love to spend Saturday afternoons was with cocktails, shisha and nibbles! To the sounds of Dj Obi from afternoon till the sun comes down! Too much enjoyment is good for you lol!
