New Campaign – #Destination L’Espace – Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle

Hey hey my lovelies! If you don’t know by now then you’d better get to know pretty quickly that L’espace is THE DESTINATION in Lagos.   If you don’t know what we’re talking about well let me break it down to you.. lol.. So.. two lovely hard working young ladies came up with the idea of starting up a monthly pop up shop 5 years ago.  It was called LPM (Le Petite Marche) and it grew from strength to strength.   But they weren’t content with that, they worked really hard and opened up their boutique store “L’Espace”.   It’s a Mecca for fashion, food and beauty lovers.   Not only do they stock a wide variety of Nigerian Designers aka #DestinationFashion – Homewares and the delectable Cam Cam Sweets, but they’ve also now opened a Cafe called Tash Bistro which serves the best salad i’ve eaten in Lagos and delicious healthy food through the day.  There’s also Elles Ice Box serving the most amazing frozen cocktails as well.  We call it #DestinationDecadence –  Now …

Trend Alert : Ombre Hair.

Hey Lovelies, Its another Thursday, and as promised I have another hot trend ruling the beauty scene. Yes, its Ombre hair. I’m sure a lot of people don’t know this, but Ombre is actually a french word gotten from the verb Ombrer, to shade (please bear with me, I’m a french language graduate).  Ombre hair refers to hair fading from dark to light or from light to dark, so instead of one color from the roots to the tip, we have a sort of gradation of color from dark to light or from dark to light from the roots to the tip.
