Looking for a Personal Shopper? Check out my Discovery of The Month - Jennifer of @Shop_myloop

Hello lovelies, what's popping? Hope you guys are having a great
week so far. So I decided to start a Discovery Series where i'll be sharing my new, happy finds with you guys and kicking off episode
1 is the lovely Jennifer!

Blogger of  InMyLoop and personal shopper of Shop My Loop.

"Anyone coming back from England? Please it's urgent."
Please I need a little favour guys, who is coming back from London anytime soon? Please help a sister." 
"Please do you know anyone coming back from the UK? I need a little stuff. I promise it's just very little. Help!"

Are you familiar with these questions? They are usually met with dead silence and no response whatsoever. But you don't blame people sha. Who wan carry excess luggage? lol.

Now if you are one of those living in Naija but used to worry about getting your paws on items from your  favourite stores in Obodo queen Eliza.... then worry no more because Jennifer is all you need.
When Kachi of  Staples&Style posted an IG picture of some lovely badges she got from Inmyloop, I delved into her page immediately, went through it and did a little victory dance because God had answered my prayer.

Been looking for someone like Jenny for a while because not only did I have a list of products
waiting to be replaced, I had a nice little wish list that needed to be fulfilled for my munchkin.

So I sent her a Dm asking how the whole thing worked and after she replied nicely with a breakdown of costs and all, we headed to whatsapp for better communication.

Most of the stuff I wanted were online so I sent her the links of the items to make things easy. I also shopped from her IG page as well...Her page is lit with fab stuff. I told her about some other offline things I wanted and she did the leg work for me. Went to the stores and got them. Throughout the shopping session she communicated very well with me. She sent in suggestions, pictures and all and I had to make my selection. It was a truly lovely experience with her.

10 days after, my package arrived nicely wrapped and sealed. I got a little personal note from her as well which I thought was such a lovely gesture.

Guys, biko if you need anything from the UK for yourelf, your family, and even your business, just Hola at Jennifer. She
is taking only online orders at the moment.
Follow her here and take it from there. You won't regret it.

Thinking of doing a mini haul of my new goodies. Don't you just love the smell of new things? hehe

Thanks again babe.

8 Things You Need To Know About Fragrance Etiquette

Watching 'Sunrise' and 'Sunrise Daily' on Channels Television is one of my long standing morning rituals. It is a program that reviews and discusses current affairs alongside other interesting topics. The Saturday show usually ends with etiquette rules by Janet Adetu. I love Janet, she is a Certified Corporate Image and Professional Business Etiquette Consultant  and is also the Founder and Director of JSK Etiquette Consortium. I have learned so much from her over a long period of time. On Saturday she talked about Fragrance etiquette and I thought it wise to share her tips with you guys.

Weird Nigerian Food Combos!!! What's yours?


Some of us have that super bizzare food combo that we are utterly
 obsessed with and anyone we tell about it, is either grossed out or considers us slightly demented for eating such. But we remain unapologetic anyway. 

I thought it'll be fun to share my oddly palatable food pairings here and I also asked a few of Naija's finest personalities what their favourite food combos are and I got interesting responses. 

  Errr....Biko don't judge us, we know you've got one too.  :)

4 simple steps to achieving The Polka Dots Nail Art Inspired by Duro Olowu

Just before I switched to 'mummy' nails I decided to try this polka dot nail art. So this post has been sitting jejely and unedited in my draft for a while now. 

Familiar with Duro Olowu? He is a Nigerian-born, London-based designer that is making waves in today's world of fashion. The first thing that came to my mind when I came across this piece was "Boom! I've got to have this combo on my nails."
