Colors and Stripes

Hey People,

How was your weekend? Mine was loads of fun, I went for my first Nigerian party here and I saw a lot of people, I did not know we were that much out here. On Sunday I went to see 'The Dark Knight Rises' OMG! It was so good it gave me oxygen. :)
I started my swimming classes yesterday and they put us straight to work immediately we got there, your truly can now float. I did not know swimming was this stressful, my legs hurt so much and I had some serious leg cramps in the water yesterday but it was fun making a fool of myself. I cannot wait for today's class.
Ok! I have been wanting print leggings for like forever and the ones I had been seeing in the stores were not meeting up to my expectations so I decided to make one. I must say I was pretty pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy!

Grecian Love!

Hey People,

How has your week been? Mine has been pretty boring. sigh! I have been reading and catching up on True blood. :)
This dress was super easy to make and it came out beautifully, I have been wanting to make something Grecian for a while now but I never got around to making it. This dress can be worn, with or without a belt, with a belt at the waist or on the hip, depending on how you like it. This babe has gained some pounds, that is what staying indoors all day does to you.
My hair is growing! yay! I usually put it in up dos now because it is very low maintenance. I went to check out a place around me where I can take swimming lessons for two weeks, I really want to learn how to swim. I am still thinking about it.
Oh! I made the envelope clutch too. I really wanted one from American Apparel, when I saw the price, I was like "I can make this" So I did. :)
Ok! Back to the pictures. I hope you like them. Enjoy!

                                                 My brother again :) Love the outfit

The Beach!!!

Hi People,

How has your week been? Yesterday was so hot, so I and a couple of friends decided to go to the beach and it was a lot of fun. We went to Santa Monica Pier, went on a couple of rides, walked around and had dinner. It was a good day.
This puffy tube top is a number from the tops for sale on my Etsy store. I decided to pair it with denim shorts and a jersey necklace that I made from leftover fabric. I hope you like. Enjoy!

Hi People,

Happy new month!!! I am so excited because the year is coming to an end! Yay! This year is going by pretty fast if I must say. This post is featuring my attempt at working with jersey without using a serger and I think it turned out pretty good.
My brother and I went for lunch at CPK and we got 50% off using a coupon we got when we went there earlier for a family lunch. Its some yellow card you give to the manager, then they scratch it and find out what you win. It was pretty exciting to know I got 50% off because I have never been lucky with stuff like that.
Ok! Back to my outfit. I just wanted something laid back so I paired it with my print leggings, boots and my brown satchel. I also made the jersey necklace from left over fabric. I think it came out well. Let me know what you think..
