Nyanrinya For Nigeria at 57

img_6585-1.jpg

Hi guys. Happy Independence Day in arias to my fellow Nigerians.

I identified with my Fulani sisters for Independence Day celebration this year.

There are three major tribes in Nigeria namely Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba.

The Yoruba people’s fashion is very common as a result of the fact that Nigerians have inculcated it in their Owambe (party) style (i.e. Iro&Buba with Gele).

The average Nigerian girl or lady has this set in her wardrobe.

The Igbos have their dressing style in wearing George and double wrappers.

These two tribes have top and wrapper basic appearance which varies in fabric, colors and textures.

Although I’m from AkwaIbom state, I chose to identify with the Fulanis who are under the Hausa tribe this year for the Independence Day celebration and yes I wore this to church as October 1st happened to be a Sunday.

Patriotism is a personal decision regardless of the bad history, present or arising circumstances in the country.

One cannot change his or her origin even if things are not as rosey as they should be. We can build the nation from our doorstep by cleaning the environment, replacing jungle justice with reporting crime to the right officials, paying our taxes and blessing the nation with our words instead of cursing.

I love this outfit by the Fulanis; the crop top, wrapper, choker combo is actually so not basic for me and I really loved myself in this outfit.

There are a lot of reasons why the average Nigerian will backdown on patriotism but I’m just gonna say we should individually do what is right . Let us close our ears from the noise of the world and do what will give the next generations to come ability to live right and make things better.

Unity and Faith, Peace and Progress.

Reasons I love Being Nigerian:

1. The color of my skin

2. Roasted plantain anytime any day

3. Gala on the go

4. The delicacies of the different tribes

5. The hustle mindset of going for what I

want.

6. Highlife music

7. The unrealistic movie scenes that are outrageously hilarious

What’s yours?

Green with love, not envy!

Hey guys! Happy Sunday and cheers to a new week. I heard testimonies in church today that sounded like movie scripts and fiction and i realized our God doesn’t do small miracles, he changes the game completely and breaks the norms for those who always remember His name. Dear reader, tap into the graciousness of God. If you failed last week, try again and this time hold unto God’s word. It’s important that I always introduce my blog posts, encouraging you all amazing people, in the Lord. Why, because the times are hard and even more perplexing for the average teenager trying to get it all  together.

“God is the Plug, stay Connected”

On the blog today, I will be showing you my outfit that features one of the fastest growing Nigerian fashion brands and five tips to starting a new week. Grab some tea as the weather is chilly, and continue reading.

Going to church today, I knew I had to look good for my maker regardless of the fact that I had a million and one requests and things to say to God; Guess what, He spoke to me expressly during the service and I felt as though an extra accessory had been added to my outfit. Why am I telling you this? Many times, we leave the house for work or church or school, looking like our problems or even worse. Why don’t we try the method of dressing towards the position we are aspiring to attain. I love fashion and I have realized that if I can dress good, when all else is terrible, then there is hope.

My gorgeous top is from DESIREFASHION1709 and I paired it with a pair of jeans from Primark mall, a pair of blinging sandals bae got me and a gucci purse.

I initially wanted to pair this top with a pair of printed paints with the same colors on the top but it’s more advisable to slay simple and classy to church hence my pairing the already statement top with less accessories and bottom. Are you feeling this look? Let me know what you’ll most likely wear this top with.

5 Tips to starting a new week

  1. You are not the mistakes you made in the previous week, every Monday is an opportunity for you to make a fresh start. Don;t wait for a fresh start, make one.
  2. Set goals on Sunday night and hold unto the word of God you heard in Church.
  3. Dress better, compliments from people could make you a bit better at working
  4. Look at the new week as an opportunity to rewrite your chapter this year, Every Monday is a second chance.
  5. Believe in yourself and your capabilities.

Please hold on to these five tips from Monday, till the very last hour of Saturday.

Wishing you all a prosperous new week.

The WCW Tag 01 : Girlfriend Material

PPOF2685

Hello darlings! How is life treating you? Good I hope.

Frankly I’ve been trying to get back on my feet with this blogging thing and it’s almost as if I’ve never been in this business before. But oh well! God’s grace is ever sufficient for us even more when we can’t figure it out. Before I take you with me on today’s post; I want you to have it in mind that this is not a blog or website of a girl who has it all together; This is my website where I share with you my wardrobe diaries, life lessons and my growth spiritually, physically, mentally and otherwise, hoping that I may some way inspire you. I really do appreciate you all for sticking with me this far.

The WCW tag which many of us know to be Woman Crush Wednesday is the centre subject of today”s post. And today’s WCW on the blog is every woman including myself that I’ve ever known and all the women out there that I don’t know too. This is because I’ve recently been down cast about a lot of things in my life, particularly because I’m longing for a change in so many areas of my life and it makes me wonder how we all as women manage to go through it all with our various individual character and behavioral flaws as issues we’re trynna deal with too. This feeling of belonging to a sphere of women longing to get it right in all ramifications of their lives was even more propelled by the movie “Girls trip” which I went to watch at the cinema yesterday after sulking the whole day. Before I continue, I know someone’s gonna ask, didn’t you pray? Well yes I did; in tears even but when your flesh is hurt, allow it to release the tears even though your trust in God is not shaken.

“Big Girls Cry”

After watching Girls trip, my eyes were opened more to the fact that there is power in women empowering one another to be better; I know one might say, it’s hard to find a friend these days that you can trust but then that’s why I always tell my girls that a relationship with God sets the tone for other relationships to be built in your life. God will cut off toxic people from you and give you the ones who would constantly make you feel like you have everything even when you don’t.

Instead of being on a search to find a squad without flaws and complications, let us be that woman that will attract other women of the kind  that she is. The truth is everyone would need somebody or a team at one point in their lives when they feel like “nah I can’t do this anymore”. The world is wicked yes, a lot of ladies are wicked in terms of disclosing secrets and bringing down the other to feel important. But what about the rest of us? Who are working on ourselves daily? There’s a sphere of women who are actually jovial, yet meek; hyper, yet can keep secrets for years. what about us that know what is right in a world that constantly paints wrongs as rights. There is no problem, complication, situation or dilemma that is peculiar with us individually. We need ourselves.  We need more squads with women pushing other women to the top. There’s nothing wrong with being alone but sometimes you need someone or some people to share in your joy, your celebration, your hurt and confusion and most importantly you need people that will get down on their knees in prayer for you.

Work on yourself today and be that woman who you want as a friend so that when that friend comes, you would say boldly that you deserve each other.

This is what the WCW tag implores today, to  all you beauts out there.

My outfit features a sheer body suit with velvet floral details and skirt with lace details and a simple black cap. I really do not know why or how I can pair face caps with anything, It’s just my style though. Plus I’m one who people always term “over dressed” so I guess I tone it down with a face cap or sneakers. Try it it works!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, please leave a comment on what you think we as women and girls should work on in order to be better friends to one another.

This post ends right here, see you in the next one.

Sincere love, kisses and hugs;

Ofure.
