Let me not even go into the “I know you missed me” crap (rolls eyes), Some offenses just need you to explain yourself and take whatever punishment that comes. Besides explaining what I have been up to all this while, I would sharing with you the street-style magic we made with the favorite footwear in my closet at the moment copped from Lowo Lagos.
There are so many stories to tell in this post, (the plan is to keep talking so you either get moved by compassion and forgive me or you forgive me just so that I can stop talking… Either ways, I’m quite confident that there shall be a forgiveness somewhere here)
I titled this journey to destination unknown ( for lack of better choice of words) because here, I would be telling you everything, everything I have been up to in this quest to become…
So I graduated from the University of Lagos last year, this year actually… That was when they finally uploaded my complete result. This was sort of an anti-climatic experience for me for a number of reasons; let’s say I had (put lightly) what I would call a difficult supervisor who made progress almost (again, put lightly) difficult for me. Fast forward to the end of the ordeal, I finished the project, I graduated a few months later than my mates, well, that was that about getting a degree.
I already had work which was taking my time and of-course paying my bills so it made graduation all the more anticlimactic since I was in the real world already, so I went on about my work.
I had just finished school, I work from home most of the time hence I was mostly at home, busy gaining weight lol.
In January I embarked on a 30 day fitness challenge, it was fun and I enjoyed even more than the physical challenge; the mental challenge and self motivation that had to follow. I got to day 29 before I was rudely interrupted by the real world and it’s hustle. In February I started fashion school to sharpen my skills on that end, and learn the actual science behind the art of fashion designing, I am still on this, it has proven to be worth all the time and effort so far and it’s definitely an asset to me. So between graduating and working, trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle and fashion school; you would find everything that has taken my time.
Finding one’s self is the most important journey of a person’s life and in the course of this journey sometimes we don’t know where exactly we would end up, which is why I titled this “journey to destination unknown”.
That has been my life in a nutshell, now to more interesting stories; to be very honest with you, I have been on a quest to find the perfect Chelsea boots that would steal my heart away, I had a terrible experience in November last year when I tried to order one online… There is no apt way to best put my feelings into words; lets just say, what I ordered online was John Boyega, and what was delivered to me was an undersized John Okafor, I won’t even lie to you… I didn’t know how to react, it’s still God that will judge all these online businesses fronting pictures from the internet that doesn’t in any way look like their work. Thank God for Lowo Lagos; early this year I stumbled on @lowolagos on instagram and was going through his works, I saw a couple of foot wears he made, this time I was very sure they were his as I spotted them on people I knew real life, the annoying(well, not so annoying) thing was the fact that they are so affordable, they were slightly cheaper than the budget I had for them. Well, fast forward a bit and i’m out here stunting in my Lowo Lagos custom hand made Chelsea boots. I am thinking of copping a new one, black or grey, what do you think?
So this is a street-style look (this has to be my mood yearlong to be honest, because I don’t work a formal job so…) with that sweet bit of Afro-urban style which so really becoming cliche for ya’ll to see me in…

So I guess all I have been trying to say in about 800+ words is that I am sorry for being away, I miss doing this with you, I really do and I have been incomplete without this part of me which is why I have even decide to expand the conversation beyond fashion, opening more parts of my life to you… The plan is not to rush into it, and basically let it unfold on this space. I really hope you would forgive me and take me back, I’m out here in the cold (heat actually) and I would be here night and day till you take me back. You are the most important piece of me and I would never forget that.
Please say something… Anything, this silence is getting awkward… Would you take me back?
BTW what do you think about my new blog theme and aesthetics? DPtrax hooked me up yo….
