Where are you from?
Citizen of the creeks lol! Edo State
Tell us about your journey into the world of blogging…
Well it started out as a platform for me to share fashion and lifestyle stories and news that I liked. At the time, I wanted a creative platform to express myself. So I started Lagos city chic because I knew I loved Lagos and I wanted to write. But along the line, I realized that the vision I initially had for Lagos city chic was not for news, but for personal lifestyle experiences. I realized this quite late because it was already 6 months into blogging randomly. So I wish I started earlier. But I’m grateful for the struggle so far, my blog turned 1 on Monday and I’m so excited for what’s to come next.
What would be the perfect outfit for you on a typical day out?
White statement T-shirt, Blue jeans and 2inch sandals.
What’s your favorite fashion brand at the moment?
Giambattista Valli!! (If could afford it I’ll probably have a couple of their pieces in my closet) In Nigeria, Imad Eduso and Maju are my current faves.
What is that one fashion accessory that you absolutely cannot leave the house without?
How do you combine blogging with other areas of your life?
Luckily enough almost everything; my job, my lifestyle revolves around what I blog about and I thank God for that. But sometimes work gets very stressful and I can’t focus on my blog for weeks. So I try to shoot about 4 looks in one day and schedule posts. But I’m trying now to live more in the moment on my Instagram and post a random, less perfect pictures and videos.
Sneakers or heels?
Hoodies or Sweatshirts?
Ah this is hard, Hoodies! No sweatshirts!!
Describe your sense of style in 3 words…
Confident, Chic, Effortless.
What brands have you worked with/currently working with?
I’ve worked with Inighi, Katie Wang, Shoes by Bree, Faaji Footwear, Bibi’s Grill, haute signatures, Shop Neen, Working with Happy Socks, and a couple of other brands that I’ll announce once we reach an agreement.
Tell us about your other interests apart from blogging…
To be honest my interest right now is pumping up my bank account and taking shopping trips lol. I want to dive into other empowerment projects soon but I’m trying to keep everything ‘hush hush’ for now. I also want to rebuild my clothing brand which was my first interest before blogging.
What are your future plans in the world of blogging?
I want to do a lot more videos; I recently started filming for YouTube. I feel like the world is moving into a more video centric phase and I think it will give people a less far-fetched impression of me. So I’m excited for that.
