New uniforms, lunch packs, school bags, socks, undies and co are items that got me in the mood back then.

Throughout my journey with Bellafricana, I have been able to meet with and learn about amazing creatives, who have a thing for transforming the most normal and insignificant things and making them look absolutely beautiful.

In Nigeria, the rhythmic sync of the drums, the passion in the dance, alluring display of the native dishes, matching attires and yes of course beaded Jewelry!!! A traditional wedding is never complete without these, and it also cuts across most countries in Africa. (more…)
African print materials are quite distinct and beautiful in its sense. And why we Africans seem to be so in love with it the formal corporate wears than the creators is quite interesting.
I have always wondered who invented the corporate dressing rule to offices. And the need to compulsorily put on a jacket and tie even when under the hot sun all in the name of being corporately dressed.
When it comes to giving gift cards in Nigeria…most especially to my significant other .. Wow! I rack my brain for days endlessly. Social media has not made it any easier, with the stunts people pull (guys in most cases), you begin to wonder if you are indeed living or just merely existing.

Africa is a beautiful continent, so great in culture and heritage. Little wonder foreigners had to come carry her people to their countries to try replicate some of the beauty which they found in her land.

I was going through a thread on twitter recently where I saw that even the black Americans and co, still believe that Africans live in caves, with no means of electricity or modern communication. sigh!
