Styling Inscription T-shirts + Three Tips + Giveaway Closed

I've always been a big fan of graphic or inscription T-shirts. In fact, in my earlier style days, I had quite a collection of a variety of T-shirts. However, with adulthood and the embrace of my new style, I began to deviate from inscription T-shirt. Lately, I've been rediscovering my love for T-shirts hence this post. 

The great thing about T-shirts is that they can be styled up or down depending on an occasion and they are just perfect due to the simplicity associated with them. My minimalist T-shirt is made in Nigeria from Shop Nandra on Instagram. 

 This look which features my tassel sandals from Things Nigerians Love (TNL) and a pink peplum flared hem skirt, was my church flow yesterday. For some reason, probably my mom's 50th birthday, I felt the need to dress up a little more than I usually do. We went out for Thai food in Abuja, stay tuned for a review shortly. 

1. Simple way to upgrade your outfit
This outfit honestly felt incomplete at first until I plopped on this bag, added shades and lipstick. Talk about three quick ways to upgrade an outfit. 
2. Pull off a no-makeup look
With the exception of light foundation to cover my blemishes, I'm not wearing a full face of makeup but it works because of the shades and lipstick, so here's your tip to pulling off a barely-there makeup look.
3. Look Curvier
One way to appear curvier especially for my square shaped ladies, is to opt for a flared hem skirt. The tight fit on the waist will give the impression of a smaller waist while the flared hem gives off the illusion of a more curvier or fuller figure. On the rare occasion that I actually wear skirts, this fit is my go-to

Happy Easter beautiful people! I hope we were all able to get some rest and be productive as we reminisced on the true essence of the holidays. When Jesus Christ died for us, he gave us the power, victory and freedom over all death, sin, bondage, sickness. And I'm so thankful that we no longer have to sacrifice animals but we can freely come into his presence to worship. May we have the grace to never take his ultimate sacrifice for granted.

    I like your blog for its simple and original contents, I never get bored of piercing through it especially with the good picture quality, I’d definitely shoot with your sis when am back home in Abuja
    I’d like you to improve on the consistency of your posts, I always anticipate to see more and who doesn’t like good timing right?

  9. i would love the TNT bubble gum sling back in size 38
    i love the Sarah Speaks segment( i dont think segment is the right word but you get what im saying)its insightful, and very honest.
    i think you improve on the blog layout for easier navigation so i can clic a button from the homepage that directs me straight to posts on Sarah speaks, fashion or reviews, what im trying to say is compartmentalize on the home page maybe just a corner(i really hope im making sense)
    i would lovee love love more product reviews froom you, you are brutally honest about reviews and i love it!! that's why when sarah says a product is good i can bank on it its different from the bandwagon who go wow wow guys this product is amazing, i buy same product and it sucks! so please more reviews

    congrats on 10k more to follow

    My favorite part of yourblog has to be the Sarah speaks section. Though I'm a silent reader, I enjoy reading your thoughts about controversial/faith issues and also what the commenters think. Also, not a lot of Nigerian style bloggers have sections like that on their blog, thats one of the things that makes yours unique. Keep it up girl. Also Your style posts are well curated and I like that you have different ways to style particularly basic items to make them pop.

    For improvements, Girl I want more place reviews especially restaurants. I would be visiting Abuja soon and after reading your Metro cafe review I would want more of that. I love how detailed the post was. Also I want to follow you around more. I genuinely enjoy watching my favorite content creators so If you could use IG stories a little bit more, please for me? And a blogging tips section too would be great, You've been in the game a while - I'm sure there's a lot your readers could learn.

    Whew, this has been a long comment but Cheers to better blogging days ahead!
