It's finally Friday!!! This has been the longest week ever. It was like Monday everyday, but at last its finally weekend and I'm so excited to start working on my next project. It feels so nice to be writing my first post this year and in today's post, I'm writing on the beret trend!

 Beret is something that I have been dying to experiment with. It was one of the top wardrobe staples of 2018. It’s a versatile topper that can be worn a multitude of ways to complete an outfit plus it’s an affordable and easy way to elevate your look. And, the beret – whether felt, fluffy or leather has always been the hat worn by those that want to make a stand.

Beret is a big trend at the moment - despite its military roots, beret has long been associated with creatives and hipsters all over the world. They are worn by celebrities, politicians, painters, poets, and so many other people. We’ll trace it back to the runways of Gucci and Christian Dior, where the designers made a strong case for the unexpected accessory. Shown in bright hues or crafted from leather, the fashion houses made a statement on the runways that has now made it to the street style scene in a big way.
The beret trend is woke. As we all know, beret is the one major trend that pretty much everyone adopted on the street style scene. And the fashion industry at its best has always reflected on the time we live in, which is perhaps why there is a rise in beret trend. The wonderful thing about this accessory is that it elevates your look, enhances, or at the very least changes your entire outfit.
The most important thing we learned is about the placement. There are a few ways to wear a beret. The most popular way is just covering the hairline on the forehead tilted to one side just like in the pictures. Another way to style it is farther back on the head.

When I saw this mustard yellow beret, I knew I had to have it. The color is unique and perfect. It's handmade and it comes in so many gorgeous colors. I styled it with my favorite knitted sweater and biker shorts and this lovely sneakers with transparent details from Zara matching my Chic Chain Transparent Bag from Rosegal. To purchase this cute bag, click on the highlighted link and also get a 25% discount off your order with this code RGBF1 and thank me later.







With the Christmas season coming to an end, and just a day left to go until Christmas day. Millions of people across the world celebrate with family and friends. Personally, this is the season I miss my family the most because I am in a different country, but I am hoping to join them soon. During this season, we would cook, eat, and dance around together. Basically, it is a season we all look forward to because the one common tradition we all share is enjoying the day with our family and friends.
 Talk about enjoying the night with your partner just when the rest of the family had gone home, or the kids are in bed, or probably spending the night at their grandparents’ house.

Surely, you would want to make the most of the night with your partner. For precious moments like that, you need a beautiful and luxurious lingerie that is perfect for the festive season and comes with an exciting vibe. Recently I came across a simple but beautiful lingerie online that is perfect for some winter seduction. This high quality piece of lingerie has a romantic design with a contemporary twist that can help spice up your relationship and make your partner want you more. Many of you know that I have an exquisite eye for gorgeous, Luxe designs, which is why I am sharing this with you.
Lately, a desire for visible branding has reached the world of lingerie. Influenced by both the rise of sporty, athleisure-wear, and many other fashion designs. However, this article is not focusing on those trends. The focus is on this gorgeous and sexy lace lingerie halter for women, which I absolutely love, and I think you will too. It is a two-piece Teddy Babydoll bodysuit that comes in both red and black. The good thing about this sexy halter is that it is stretchy and comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from small to extra-large. The set is made with 85% Nylon and 15% spandex materials. Besides the stunning beauty of this lingerie, it is very comfortable to relax in, as the material just flows in a lovely fluid motion against your body. It is the season of giving! This would make a great gift or a sexy little treat for yourself and/or a loved one.
In a country that is cold and unpleasant to wear sexy lingerie, many people get discouraged to do so. However, it sometimes becomes boring for your partner because they don’t want to be seeing the same or similar pyjamas everyday. Festive seasons like this is a good opportunity to surprise your partner with sexy lingerie perfect for winter evenings. But what do you  do when you can’t find your favorite lingerie brands in your country? Well, the answer is to Check out Rosegal, an online boutique focused on high-fashioned lingerie and many other high-end clothing that you could think of and here is a 25% Discount code : RGBF1 off your order.
Talking about the just concluded miss universe 2018. Did you watch the show? it was a super beautiful and exciting one at that. The crowd and fun was so contagious, what a beautiful way to spend the weekend.

Thailand has been on my bucket list to visit. The miss universe 2018 competition being the 67th pageant took place on 17 December 2018 at IMPACT Arena, Muang Thong Thani in Nonthaburi Province, Thailand. It was indeed a beauty to behold. Thailand is a country of many contrasting facets, with glorious beaches as well as forests, jungles and mountains. A country with a large tourist attraction and welcoming citizens. The perfect relaxation spot of any holiday getaway with family and friends. Enjoy the golden sunbath, museum, seaside relaxation, mountain biking and wildlife exploration. There is never a dull moment in Thailand, every moment can be beautifully enjoyed and appreciated which made it the perfect choice for the just concluded miss universe which was indeed a tough one. The contestants explored Thailand and its breathtaking views.

It is said beauty with brains is totally attractive, and I must say, in as much as there were a lot of beautiful ladies,  I want to commend the question and answer session, especially the top 10 contestants. Well constructed answers, well put together speeches, Intelligent and brave women. 
There were lots of beautiful dresses but I must say Catriona Grey looked so stunning in her evening dresses and walked so gracefully. The red and peacock style dress designed by Mak Tumang has been on the mouth of everyone since the conclusion of the pageant. 
A big congratulations to the winner of the pageant Miss Universe 2018 Miss Catriona Grey. A special thanks to Aramide Oluwatobi Lopez who represented my country Nigeria so well. Her bikini cat walk is everything, yellow indeed looks so good on black skin.
We appreciate the strength, power and focus in her. So much talent which must be commended. 
Beauty pageants is a very good test of self confidence and ones out going nature.
One question always on my mind about  beauty competitions, is how can a total of 94 ladies from different parts of the world contest and just one girl is awarded the winner. I hold nothing against beauty pageants because it takes a lot of confidence and strength to represent your country but I do not believe it is the best test of beauty and intelligence. There are so many beautiful ladies who can also do even better,  this is to say that we are all beautiful, you don't have to be in a pageant to prove yourself, every moment and day we prove ourselves and each battle and struggle overcome makes us who we are. Beauty is indeed in our behavior and the way we live and love others.

The event was a memorable one, as different 94 countries showcased their national costumes which were beautifully made and styled.
I had my favorites which had great significance.
Curacao this costume stands for free women. Saprica was a free woman who educated slaves. The costume and head piece looked so lovely and powerful.

Panama looked good in that blue costume featuring feathers and glitters. 

Peru had so much to flaunt as she showed us the back of the costume which had a fish on it. The two sided costume also featured green leaves shaped as feathers.

Japan had so much fun on the show, the famous Japanese martial art garment underneath a cute school girl look, a costume mostly associated with the Japanese culture.

Puerto Rico showcased a  US flag like ball gown, holding a ball and had about three hands on it. 

Ecuador had so much going on on the stage but it looked so nice as she also brought life to the show. Because Ecuador is located in South America with its privileged land, the costume draws its inspiration from the thick jungles, rivers, wild life and blessed land.

Mexico walked so lovely in the national Mexican costume representing  a God of Mayan culture. It is made of plastic stones, feathers and leathers.

India showed so much strength, as she carried a heavy warrior throne which was attached to her back. The costume represents the big personalities and also the empowerment of women. The costume weighs over 105 pounds, what a strong woman.

Brazil jumped on the stage with a very happy walk, showing her national costume. Vibrant yellow color looking so amazing on stage. The costume signifies the sun goddess who transforms herself into a bird to protect herself and people. This costume was made with thousands of feathers. It took about three months to make.

El Salvador came as a snow queen, what a beauty to behold, standard and clean. It represents a  Colombian festival.

Wow, wow, wow! It's been an amazing year, with so much to be thankful for. As you all know, today is my birthday and I'm super proud of the strong woman I have become and how beautiful the years have been despite the occasional ups and downs. Every year seems to come with something greater and I am more thankful to everyone who has contributed to my life positively, impacting in me and also a special thanks to my family; my backbone and special source of joy. 

The year 2018 has been a year of trial but I pulled through and God has been on my side. What a great assurance, what a friend I have in Jesus, ever available and hearing us all. 

If there's one thing I like about fall season, it's the beautiful and colorful trees, the holidays, the changes, despite the fact that leaves are dead and falling from trees, it feels like a season of fresh start and it makes everything look gorgeous and outstanding.
For as long as I can remember, fall has been my second best season of the year which comes after summer (my best season of the year) may be because I spent most of my growing up in Nigeria where the weather conditions are summer like even tho it gets a little bit cold in november ushering us into the Harmattan season.
   2018  Fall was an amazing time of the year for me and i'm sad by this seasonal change because it ended so quickly here in Ukraine, I couldn't get enough of it knowing the next coming season will be winter which is my worst season. Yes I repeat ''Winter is my worst season''.
Winter feels like the longest season for me because the snow and cold last just too long. But fall has the best of summer with a little bit of spring tossed in.
 3 Things to love about fall:
1, The romantic days: I call it "romantic days" because they're just those cozy days you want to take a walk with your boyfriend/husband and stick your hand in their pockets, go for a tea or coffee and talk about anything. This alone can make you feel warm inside and outside and give you that romantic kind of feeling of relaxing and spending quality time with someone you're in love with.

2, The change: Talking about change, this is one of the best things I love about fall, the refreshing weather giving the most brilliant shade of blue sky, changing of the trees from green to yellowish orange, giving us that feeling of a new beginning though most people think of new year as a time for change, I have always thought of fall as one of the times for change too cause change is all around us.
 3, The fall fashion: Fall is a very important time for fashion. Even with the sun shining, you still need to snuggle into a warm sweater. I love the hand-knit sweaters and hoodies as i'm wearing in my pictures, they give a warm feeling to your body.
      I love picking out outfits and finding the perfect look which is why I picked these sexy graffiti lace up chunky faux leather booties from amiclubwear. they're just perfect for fall season and they keep your feet warm and they're very comfortable.
   I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Feel free to comment and share your views. Have a great week.
