A bikini is always a good idea
Because, it’s summer!
Even though, there’s really no summer in Nigeria. Just very, very, very hot afternoons and oddly timed rainfalls. I love summer! In Nigeria, we might not have a legit summer but we definitely have a summer culture. I’m talking pools, bikinis, beaches, cabanas, summer food, clothes, summer jams and parties, even summer school! 😂
On my Summer Essentials list are,
My Top & Skirt set by 7th Avenue. This is easily my favourite of the lot. The Top is everything. The watermelon print is so summer and so pretty, paired with a leather skirt. I know, I know, summer is not leather and vice versa. That’s why I love it, honestly. Haute couture doesn’t follow the rules. It’s an unlikely pair but it works! Sparkle, print, pink and leather. It’s like Summer’s greatest creation.
My current obsession, Richard Branson’s Virginity. I’m telling you, it’s a great read. Richard is a very witty writer and that really shines through in his books.
My Daily Journal, because planning is key. If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail!
My Order Book, this helps me to really follow my orders to a Tee. Some people have apps for this but you can’t really beat an old-fashioned book. It was put together by @theideaartillery.
My Dapmod shades, the Sun is hot. These sunglasses save me all the time.
My make-up essentials
My Maybelline powder, because I love a popping face. My Zaron face definer, Zaron blush, Zaron eye liner, which I’m serious, is the best in the west and Zaron perfect finish. My Naked 4 eyeshadow pallete, the colours are a beautiful summer and the ever-classic, Mac Ruby Woo.
My Beverly Hills Polo perfume, I love that it’s so miniature. It makes it easy to carry around, I can literally slip it into the tiniest clutch purse. It’s a life saver! Especially, in these hot, smelly times.
My minimalist earrings from Tope Crystal. Very chic and minimalistic, I really adore these.
My Susen sling bag, extremely summer-ery! Easy to toss stuff into and very light. It’s a hundred percent my go-to bag this summer.
