Today was our last Law School exam and in-fact one of our most challenging. If you know anything about leveraged management buyouts, IRR’s and Rachet calculations,  you will know exactly why!  Nonetheless, we could not be happier that it is over! For both of us this is quite and exciting but daunting turning point in our lives for the first time ever  neither of us are 100% sure about what destiny has planned for us from September. Regardless we can promise you an abundance of fashion fantasies. Without sounding  like too much of an acceptance speech, we just want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us through Law School. Especially our parents ! Stay tuned to find out what’s next ! Don’t forget our giveaway ends tomorrow !

Everyone should have a space where they go to simply escape, it is the cheapest form of rehab and will help retain your sanity at no extra cost. My escapism is otherwise known as The Farthing Downs. It’s walking distance from my house, I love this place it’s almost better than shopping (I said almost) ! This post was in fact accidental!  Molly the Mini  broke down (serves me right for not walking) and I was stuck waiting for the RAC, so I put the waiting time to good use.

History is being made today!

…the World Cup on African soil. I (Kike) can’t remember the last time I was this proud to be from the Motherland. It’s been an interesting first match so far, with South Africa scoring the first goal! Who says Fashion and Football can’t mix? I’m hopelessly in love with the game of football, so today, I got dressed and took a break from boring revision, had an early lunch and watched the match with my friends.

AFRICA STAND UP!

Halfway through revision, I came across some old pictures of Tobi and I. We’ve changed! Not only have we grown as women, we’ve evolved style wise! It’s quite interesting to see that a lot of things we wore even 3 years ago, we probably wouldn’t wear today! Writing this post also made me realize how similar we are in almost every sense of the word!

I love you Tobz!!

Haha, my first attempt at Lipliner -NEVER AGAIN! I wonder if Tobi still has this dress. We were both wearing dresses from Zara.

My 20th birthday. Smothering her with sloppy kisses. Lol

See how similar we are? Same phones AND we dance the same way. Lol. (Tobi is selling that skirt here, make sure you check it out!)

Our Summer holiday in Nigeria. Tobz will you be wearing those shorts again? I must definitely will NOT be wearing this Maxi. (….I wonder where it is!)

LOL. Tobi and I fell in love with the A&F model on their carrier bags. I think we named him “Tom”.

The way I did my make-up started to change here. Tobi introduced me to the “NARS Body Glow” and I haven’t looked back since!

Our trip to NYC! It was such a short trip but we had a great time. She took the first photo and I took the second. We’re dressed practically the same here too!

The day we met Dawn from Danity Kane (RIP DK)! Those chunky necklaces… I have no clue where mine is… not sure I would wear that cardigan with the hood today either!

BrickLane Day! We had a mini photoshoot! Channelling our inner “Naomi” and “Tyra”.

It was such a relief to graduate. We started together and finished together. One of the happiest days of our lives. (… we’re still at it but you get the idea). You can’t see our clothes, but Tobi was wearing a beautiful dress from Karen Millen and I was wearing a skirt suit with an embellished top, also from Karen Millen.


My 21st birthday. Tobi was an star that day! She got me one of my most comfortable shoes ever for my birthday, from Steve Madden. Her dress is from H&M and mine was made by my aunt, who is a fashion designer in Nigeria, LanreDaSilvaAjayi. Oh and Tobi did my make-up too!

Tobi’s hot shoes from Zara.

Sometimes friendships can be so easy! Especially when you have similar interests and love the same things!

If you are yet to spot the maxi dress as a trend this season, where have you been? The right maxi dress can accentuate your fabulous womanly shape and for us short girls, give us the elongation we sometimes wish for. Once again I ask, if you haven’t been to H&M and grabbed one of their £7.99 maxi dresses, where have you been?  It’s so versatile, you won’t regret it. My sister (of the fabulous Lipstick Boudoir) and I both wear our maxi’s slightly differently, take a look ….

I (Tobi) woke up this morning in a very Carrie Bradshaw type of mood I suddenly felt like posting  all my thoughts, feelings and observations on the blog.  This pensive state of mind took me to a place where I began to examine the realities of life. Simultaneously, Kike and I started talking about the drawbacks of the being 21 year olds striving to develop into accomplished yet stylish women of the world. Being the close friends that we are (we’re more like sisters really) we began to talk about how we should perceive ourselves and naturally as young women perhaps we look into to mirror way more than we should do. What we should be doing is looking at our hearts.

Kike

I’ve always felt the need to lose weight. People see me and immediately comment on my size saying how “tiny” and “cute” I am. For the longest time, I considered my self fat. Hard to believe but true. I felt there were bits here and there that could be a tad bit smaller, or a tad bit firmer. I should probably just come out and say it now – I am the most unfit person in the world. I once did a 10k run…. actually let me tell the truth, I ran about 2 km and walked (I strolled really) the rest of the way. Despite all of Tobi’s attempts to get me to do pilates or to do some cardio, I just can’t seem to get my head around the gym. I recently signed up at a local gym, and cancelled my membership 3 months later! It’s so easy to compare yourself to the next girl. I can’t count how many times I’ve said to myself, “I wish I had those legs” or “I wish I was that toned”; it’s only natural, but there is no such thing as a “perfect body”.

We keep hearing that we should be comfortable in our own skin. It’s so easy for people to say that and after a while it becomes a bit cliché… but the harsh reality is… IT IS THE TRUTH. The first step to actually “being comfortable” with your body type is to stop comparing yourself to others. Once you accept the body you have, it will accept you and then your confidence builds up. I am definitely not saying it should even be legal to be as unfit as I am. Exercise never hurt anyone (….well except me) but if the gym does not work for you, there are alternatives; eating healthy, walking instead of taking the bus (if possible!) etc…

Be comfortable and confident and everything else will follow.

Tobi

Last summer I made the a strong and hard commitment to myself. That I was going to transform myself back into the Tobi, formally known as the sports junkie who managed to score a place on the Surrey athletics team. Three university years had swept me into a sluggish and inactive  abyss. Needless to say I was proud of my academic achievements, but not so proud about newly acquired junk that allowed me to struggle through a 5km fun run. To add more insult to injury my Mum finished the 10km run only a mere 10 minuets after me. I knew I had to get fit….

At every-moment of my journey I had to remind myself of exactly why I was doing this. The fear of becoming a hard fast size 0 alluring junkie was real. Contrary to the comments of my African auntie’s beliefs size 0 was not the goal. To be fit and healthy was. That’s not to say I don’t have body hangs ups. I think any person, boy or girl who says they don’t is lying. I found my true level of self-comfort when I discovered that there is no such thing as they perfect body, but that a healthy body was my ultimate desire.

A true style queen is beautiful in any shape or size, just stay happy, healthy and true to yourself.

Love,

TheQueens,
