Travel | Moscow.



Over the past two weeks I had to visit Moscow twice, both times for business purposes however I did take out time to go and see the little nooks, crannies, major landmarks that make Moscow one of the fascinating cities in the world. In this post, I show some of the images I captured during my time in Moscow: The cathedral at Saint. Patriarshiy bridge // sunset on St. Patriarshiy // State historical museum at the red square // Cathedral of St. Basil's the Blessed on the red square // Lenin's Mausoleum on the Red square // Third floor of the GUM ( Grand/big universal store/mall) // Roof/ceiling of the GUM // Fountain opposite the red square // picture slices of the GUM (Frankly I couldn't capture the mall in its entirety, That building is insane) // Glass bed at the Patriarshiy bridge Cathedral // St. Patriarshiy bridge Sunset over the cathedral // St. Patriarshiy bridge // Walking the Crimean bridge // View of the crimean bridge from down below // This 'river' you are staring at is actually a fountain in the middle of the Gorky park of Culture and leisure // Having a 'venus moment' at the Fountain // A thick shrub of purple petals in the Flowers section of the park // Water- ride train inside the park // Bleachers' Yoga pose //  Self titled 'pearl tunnel' in the park // Views of the Metro station in the park.
Unfortunately I cannot post up every photo taken as it would make an endless post however these are the highlights and a few will be posted on my Instagram account as well.

On another note, I am in the process of finding a solid photographer to work with, so please excuse my absence on the blog until I find one.
PHOTOGRAPHERS in the HOUSTON area please contact me (via the contact form) on the right column of this blog page.
Have a blessed upcoming weekend.
Happy Labour day weekend in advance.

مَلِكَة Malikah 'مَلِكَة


My royalty-themed posts are gradually becoming somewhat of a story-line these days. One of three conclusions can be made from this outfit; Firstly, I have managed to express my immense adoration of Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al missned's sense of style (and class). Secondly, this outfit gently reminds you of something similar worn by Rihanna in Abu Dhabi or three, I look like an 'Emirates' flight attendant. Lol? (The latest might I add is how my munchkin 'zainab' chose to view this precious ensemble never minding the fact that she proclaimed 'Masha Allah!' at first glance, She is such a hater). If you fall under the category of the fist opinion, then you are my person/people because I am channeling HRH SMbNAM today; as a matter of fact I am channeling royalty in general from the colour purple (which is a royal colour to Europe) to decent arabian accessories and a velvet fascinator. The idea to wear this outfit stemmed from my fascinator which I had for 3 years (but found use for only twice excluding today) and coupled with yearning for a very modest yet regal look, this outfit was born.
Please keep up with me on : Facebook // Lookbook // Instagram // Pinterest.

帯 Obi 帯

I am wearing the best piece of Japanese traditional garment I can D.I.Y; an OBI.
This outfit is a slight style/cultural pun because the obi or sash is made from Ankara (or Africa wax) which is indigenous to Nigeria, I hail from the eastern part of Nigeria and'Obi' in my native language means 'heart' and the Japanese obi is worn close to the chest region (region of the heart)... so coincidence or no?
To add a little twist to the outfit, I knotted a black satin tie and wore a white sleeveless collared shirt and a pair of fancy neon-green Nike kicks.
