Pink and Floral

Heyyyyyyyy. Salam alaikum!

In celebration of Breast Cancer awareness month which is observed in October, here is a style post with a touch of pink, If you’d like, you may wear a cute little ribbon. But most importantly, support women who are fighting the battle.

There are a few causes going on around, help raise funds, do your bit and hope for the best. And if you are feeling very generous, you can donate to foundations that sponsor cancer research as well.

Outfit details:

Shoe- Newlook

Scarf- Always had it, don’t even remember buying it. I think it’s my mum’s and it is part of an indian outfit set but it goes well with the green that can be found on the top print.

Top- DIY*. I made it buba style with flare around the sleeve end and I really wanted the sleeves to be super long.

Skirt- DIY*. Regular pleated skirt. Although this is usually not my color as I prefer earth tones more, but hey, it’s the month of breast cancer!

*I made/ sewed it

I got a new lens for my camera!! My pictures are so much better now and it makes me so happy. Al hamdulilah 😀

And I’m also thankful to my brother, Abdullah, who was gracious enough to help in taking the pictures. Lol.

Here are throwback pictures of me in ‘Pink’ for #BreastCancerMonth. I tried not to cringe. Also thankful for growth.

The second picture’s touch of pink with a lipstick i borrowed because I didn’t have anything pink to wear or owned any make up.

Sai Boli!

Just excuse the title as I don’t know a more apt one.

So! On the 9th of October, today, EatDrinkConnect Nigeria held their maiden food fair in Abuja and I was on ground to install a food art. A lot of times, my food art are seen only in pictures, so this was a super amazing opportunity to see the art work live. And experience it first hand. I used Boli and groundnut to achieve this art installation. Peanuts in different forms and spiced with honey and also pepper. They were all placed on paper to either protect the table or food, lol.

Hence, Sai Boli (and epa).

What made this installation awesome is that people were able to interact over and with the food because it is completely edible and they could basically eat off it. I heard a lot of, “I’m eating the national cake”. And maybe this is the only selfie I’ll ever get with President Buhari while he is still in office. Lol
