ONLINE SHOPPING IN NIGERIA: JUMIA WISH-LIST



6 comments






Hey guys, so I don't do much online shopping simply because I enjoy the whole process of walking into various stores, trying on a bunch of clothes and buying some lol. Also with online shopping there is always the uncertainty of sizes and quality but when Jumia reached out to me I thought why not give it a shot. I will say that this site has a lot of amazing items especially shoes, I just kept adding items to my wishlist but these are some of my favourites. I look forward to shopping a lot more on Jumia,
 What is your favourite item?

Hey beautiful people, how was your weekend?
Today I'm stocked to be collaborating with my Chidinma of Simplyuneeke. Seeing that we were both of Nigerian decent, we thought we would show you guys two ways of rocking the ankara trend. In the past few years, you would have noticed an appreciation of the ankara African material which is poplar among many Nigerians in traditional events like weddings and ceremonies. But today, it can be easily styled and taken to modern day activities hence the purpose of this collaboration.

I was initially going for a bow-tie accessory but that didn't work out so I decided to go simple with a head-wrap. I just paired my favourite pink trousers (styled here and here) with a basic tank top and then a head-wrap to spice things up. On a casual day I'd rock this look with some flats but for blog purposes I opted for my blue chunky heels last featured here. This outfit is both modern, traditional and formal don't you think?
For more inspiration check out how to rock a head-wrap and also how to tie a head-wrap.

Pants: Vintage || Shoes: Stradivarius || Headwrap, Tank Top: Thailand

I'm not one to mix prints but on this particular day I decided to step out of my comfort zone and pair my water colour kimono (styled here, here, and here) with my pencil skirt (styled here) and I must say I love the results. A quick tip to mixing prints is to make sure the patterns have a similar colour in common and in this look the common colours are black, white and blue. Pairing contrasting colours in prints is another option too but if you want to play it safe you can always work with colours in the same pallet like I did here.

Hey guys, my apologies for the inconsistent posts, I've been busy but I'm trying to get back into my blogging groove.
Anyways, most of you probably know that I lived in Bangkok Thailand for over six years and I've put up a post on that before Here. When I was in Thailand last month I was on tourist mode, taking pictures of everything in site.  I didn't really do anything touristy, I just ate my favourite Thai dishes,  went shopping in the street markets and shopping malls of course.  Finally I caught up with my friends which was one of the highlights of my trip.

If you follow me on my IG page at Princessaudu then you may have seen some of these shots.

Hope this gives you a bit of a feel of life in Thailand.
