Apartment Art



I’m wearing: La Fiorentina scarf (as turban) / Topshop sweater

Lips: Void by Angel Cherry lipstick in Alter Ego + MAC plum lipliner

When Obi and I went to Nigeria in 2013, we picked up some artwork at a market in Abuja. It was the craziest day! Obi’s brother, Kelechi, was shooting pics of me for my travel outfit post. Obi’s mom made a delicious Nigerian lunch and then we rushed to the art market. We only had like an hour before leaving for the airport but we found some amazing art to bring back to our apartment. Here are two of my fave pieces. I love my Nigerian culture : )

Loving my gorgeous light purple lipstick by my creative friend makeup artist Angel Cherry. Perfect color payoff! Check out her great offering here.

Trying On Wedding Dresses- Part 1


It’s time to start planning for my wedding! First stop- looking for dresses over at one of my fav spots- RK Bridal in NYC. A couple weeks ago, I stopped in and tried on these 2 beauties. Not yet sure what the theme is going to be so I tried on 2 different ones: ballroom gown and laidback/flirty. I’m def more of the ballroom kinda gal, but it was fun to see the different vibes these two dresses had! Check out the pics and fun video clip : )

Alfred Angelo Wedding Dress #1 




Alfred Angelo Dress #2 (similar)



Styling wise, I think dress #1 works great for the traditional ballroom reception style wedding, while dress #2 is great for a chill beach style “I Do”.

Which one do you like better, Dress #1 or #2? I’m naturally drawn to #1, but would love to hear your thoughts! I haven’t settled on one that I’m obsessed with yet so I’ll be doing some more dress shopping later this month! Stay tuned!

See the dresses in motion in this vid:
