Welcome to my blog.
My name is Tejumade, a Nigerian diasporan living in the Western Cape, South Africa. My love for fashion and beauty started at a young age.
As far back as I can remember, I was a precocious toddler obsessed with playing dress up in my mum’s closet. My love of fashion had me convinced that I was going to be the next Vivienne Westwood. After a year studying Garment Construction at LISOF, I quickly realised my love for fashion did not lend itself to sewing. Styling and blogging about fashion, yes. Constructing and designing, no. Not even DIY.
