Momspiration Pt 1: Meet The Versatile Shopper, Remi Fagboghun

Momspiration Pt 1: Meet The Versatile Shopper, Remi Fagboghun

I’m all for woman power, women supporting women and everything along that line. Juggling being a wife, a mother, a home maker and a career amongst other unrecognized roles is a feat that should be crowned. When you find a woman that fits into these many shoes and tops it up with being a fine ass fashionista, she is worthy of a special blog post and more. In the next few weeks, Mondays will be dedicated to fashionista moms in these series MOMSPIRATION for #momcrushmonday Remi Fagbohun is one terrific mom I have followed since my early days on Instagram. Her infectious happy spirit and easy disposition to life not to mention her fashion game drew me to her. She’s an American based personal shopper and a stylist to some of the biggest names in Nigeria. A wife, a mother, and an entrepreneur, she’s one of those women who look so good in their 40s, you start to question your existence if you’re in your 20’s and out of shape. With her love and taste for/in shoes, her high sense of style and zestful nature, she’s my no 1 feature mom for the series… You wouldn’t want to miss out on my interview with her for IN HER CLOSET. On on the streets, at home, routing for Charles in school, date nights with Mr F, she’s always looking hot. And yea, she’s over 40, body goals, no?. A loud Yes and an Amen. Peace, Love and Fashionable Moms Xoxo ūüėė... read more
In Her Closet – Season 2, Episode 1 – Ex Beauty Queen Mrs Ifeoma Williams

In Her Closet – Season 2, Episode 1 – Ex Beauty Queen Mrs Ifeoma Williams

It’s been 20 amazing episodes of In Her Closet and i’m thankful for every single interview. Meeting these amazing women and getting a sneak peek into their closets. It’s the start of another season and it’s going to be another round of fabulous women in every sector sharing their style tips and closet secrets. The Cerebral Lemon co, owned by Ex-beauty Queen of the 1998 Miss Lux¬†¬†beauty pageant, Mrs Ifeoma Williams is a company that¬†constantly seeks to positively influence the perceptions and opinions of African audiences by connecting them to excellent media content. I didn’t quite pay attention to the vast difference between being a stylist and an image consultant until my interview¬†with her. I was more than honored when she granted me this interview. A trained lawyer, a mom of 2 boys, a wife and professional in her image consulting passion now turned career, Ifeoma Williams exudes style with very classy vibes. Giving credit to the Jackie Kennedy¬†Era as her style influence, the Ex BeautyQueen shares a few things with me on this Episode of IN HER CLOSET. Enjoy!!! E-INTERVIEW WITH MRS IFEOMA WILLIAMS JAY:¬†You are an¬†epitome of style, what does style mean to you? ¬† IFEOMA: Style is often misunderstood to mean strictly “dress style”. For me, Style is all encompassing and more than pure appearance. It is the conveyance of an aura of distinction that is hard to define but easy to recognize. JAY: Jackie Kennedy is your style icon, that’s style in the 50’s – 60’s, there were hats (which I’ve seen you love by the way) and bright colors, geometric designs and structures… What... read more
Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Season 2 Episode 1 – 5 Years After

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Season 2 Episode 1 – 5 Years After

Read¬†Season 1, Episode 9¬†here “I have to go now” said Ivie, as she picked up her Gucci bag and car keys and gave me a peck on the cheek. “This Osas’ school management can just be very over sabi, like they love the children more than we¬†the parents. If we’re more than 10 minutes late in picking them up, it’s a¬†¬†problem” She said, as she waved and walked towards the door of the restaurant where we just had¬†lunch. It had been 5 years after her wedding to Eddy and¬†Hakeem’s proposal to me and so many things had happened. Ivie now had a 4 year old daughter and another baby on the way. Pregnancy suited her and she had stuck to her healthy habits all the way and she remained as fashionable as ever but in a more mature way. Since she got married and had Osas, she was almost always on the move. It was with a deep sense of commitment we had managed to keep our Tuesday lunch dates. Motherhood looked good on her and¬†she was dedicated to it a 100%. Aishat and i teased her a lot about how she had sacrificed her long artificial nails and 30″ weaves for natural nails and braids. Their plans to relocate to the USA had been cancelled, and 2 years into their marriage, she had started a Travel and Tourism Company with plans to resign her paid employment with the Oil and Gas firm she worked for. It had been a tough decision to make, but she also wanted enough time to cater to her family which her paid employment... read more
Throw Back Thursday- Just yesterday it was the 90’s

Throw Back Thursday- Just yesterday it was the 90’s

I was listening to the 90’s TLC’s Waterfall a few days ago and remembered my friend Tosin, i remember we used to call her Ruka (From Rukayat, her muslim name) back then.¬†Ruka and her siblings were the coolest kids on our street. She had older siblings in secondary school and the university and if i wasn’t in school or in my house, then i was at theirs. Ruka and her sister Yemi, who we were all age mates, had access to every fashionable piece you could think of and they became my real time fashion icons. My love for shoes most likely started from the womb, because even at age 6/7, i remember hopelessly taking in the structure of their clogs and jelly sandals and running home to ask my mum to buy me¬†a pair. I particularly loved going to their house when their older sisters were around because their heels were always higher and a lot sexier and their dance steps even hotter. The early 90’s were my formative years and the shoes that rocked those first 10 years of my life are shoes i can’t forget in a hurry. CLOGS: These were hands down my favorite shoe style of the 90’s. I wanted them at all cost, although i didn’t get them at the time¬†i wanted, when i finally did, they had a special spot in my wardrobe. I practically adored them and would wear them EVERYWHERE just so i was identified as a Cool Kid. The Clogs never really left and have evolved over the years in more detailed and sophisticated designs. JELLY SANDALS: If you... read more
Want It Wednesday – Flared Heels Are The Thing!!!

Want It Wednesday – Flared Heels Are The Thing!!!

Flared heels aren’t a new trend, they’ve been around for many years and this is evident with these Yves Saint Lauren Pumps from the 80s. As the name implies, they are heels that flare out at the bottom. But since block heels became a thing, the flared heels became the stylish twist to rocking a pair of block heels. In pumps and sandals, there are way too many pairs to ogle and indulge in. Check these out…     With luxury retail outlets stocking up on the Spring 2017 collection, high street stores are equally stocking up on less expensive options, like this ¬†Miu Miu Satin Sandals and¬†River Island Velvet Sandals both with embellished flared heels. And these Miu Miu Mary Jane Glitter Pumps and River Island Ankle Strap Glitter Pumps   With style variations, there are many ways to style your Flared heels like these low heeled mules¬†by Mercedes Castillo   And these pumps by Givenchy styled in the Monochrome Look   So would you rock this trend? As i am all for details, i love the twist it adds to the block heels, just like the cone heels, curve heels and round block heels, flared heels are going to be around for a long time. Peace, Love and Get Flared Heels Xoxo, Jay.... read more

It’s been a really busy period for me this past few weeks. But i’m slowly but surely settling in and i must say it’s really nice here so far. My kids have done two weeks of school, and between the Teachers and Parents, i must confess, their shoe game is up there (It comes naturally, shoes are the first thing i notice on any one). ¬†Meanwhile, let’s play catch up.
