HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR MUSTARD?


I'm a huge lover of mustard sauce on a juicy hot-dog with some chopped onion,tomato sauce, chili sauce and mayonnaise sometimes. I do love the tanginess fried chicken has when I marinate chicken overnight in mustard and other spices. Just writing down the details is making my mouth watery,no joke!I'm a confessed foodie. Before I turn this Queendom into a food blog, I have discovered that mustard is a trending color that I've been wanting to style,finally did and these are the pairings I came up with.

Mustard + brown. I love this skirt and I have already styled it here where an over-sized blazer gave it life. I think this outfit is suitable for the office,church or where else? Let me know.



Mustard in the tropics. This rich peach color is tropical and the more reason I put it together with my mustard piece to see how it would come out and voila! What occasion would this outfit be perfect for?





Mustard blues. You have met one of my favorite wardrobe staples on this post. I'm slowly falling in love with blue and it is not a  good thing. Scroll around and read other posts to know why! By the way you haven't answered my question..how do you like your mustard? Let me know.



ERRANDS TO RUN


If there will come a time I'm told to choose one thing, and make it the best of  things I love to do, running errands will be it. Yes, I love anything that makes me get out of the house. 
Although  I have a love-hate relationship with  the idea of looking for what to wear ,I found a solution that's been working quite well. I normally put together an outfit in my head  first, but most times :only to realize one piece of the puzzle will be  folded and sitting  at the bottom of the laundry basket! How convenient. Apart from such scenarios, I love dressing up, running errands and this is my typical errand-outfit:nothing over the top but still keeping it together! What's your ideal errand day outfit(s)?

PALACE GATES

I love being a tourist in my city because not only is it affordable but pretty cool. The idea of adventure and discoveries has no standard formula to me.On one of the many good days,I found myself at a royal museum..cool huh? I loved the fact that they still have much of the things the royal family used back in the day and being quite a historian myself,I had a great day!
The wooden,artistic gate put me into a light trance, and went back to the 12th Century. I watch plenty series based on that era thus,I anticipated bumping into Kublai Khan from Marco Polo. Haha maybe not. 
What type of series do you guys watch?Suggestions please.





Taking Stock Eight



Making :  Sure I exercise at least three times a week. I'm on a mission that can only be achieved through small but consistent steps.

Reading : I promise to pick up a book. Next stock will be full of summaries. 

Wanting : To get a swimming card because the one I was using expired. I'm also wanting to write a book on how to swim in a public pool and remain sane.



Looking:  For a primer and liquid liner. I want to try out new things hehe

Wasting: No time following people who are energy drainers. I noticed some pages I follow on my social media are nothing but a drain. Bye

Wishing:  My sisters and I could be with my mum the last week of March. She could really use her girls around this time of the year.

Waiting: To finish up assignments at hand so that I start on a much bigger assignment and be done with school,for now.You know you can never be done learning.



Wondering: Why people stay in abusive relationships/friendships/marriages. Do you guys have a clue?

Marveling: At my consistency with drinking water first thing in the morning. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made. 

Needing: My sister to resubscribe on iroko. It's a Nollywood movie website and I get to watch movies on her subscription. The joys of sisterhood.



Smelling: Washing powder. 



Knowing: I should do things that my future self will thank me for. I also got to learn about the concept of 'stickability' and with that at the back of my head,I won't be giving up easily. Look it up. Stickability



Effects of Thinking: March was some kind of testing month.I already am not in good books with it yet I had more reasons not to love the month ever. Instead of letting things to steal my joy,I decided to think happy thoughts,positive thoughts,good thoughts. The mind is such a powerful organ 



Bookmarking: March 26th

Opening: More and more blogs and YouTube channels that i'm discovering.

Enjoying: Celebrations. March was filled with lots of reasons to celebrate, from birthdays to graduations. I enjoyed being part of them. Cheers to many more good times!

Liking: Short nails. Exercising. The People v O.J Simpson. The inner lawyer in me comes out when watching it! 



Wearing: Clothes with the lightest material. The weather is hot!I can never get used to the heat. Take me to some snowy place,please.



UnFollowing: Energy draining people. On social media and in real life! Life is too precious to be drained by random people.

Noticing: That creating or drawing the winged eyeliner is no joke!How do you girls rock it?



Feeling: Optimistic and privileged to hop into another brand new month.April is upon us therefore, Aim Personal Realness In Life. Yes. I made that up. Happy new month peeps. May God perfect all that concern you!


Cheers..
