Every Friday, the BNS social media and editorial team comes together to share all our favorite things from the past week. From the fashion brand we are obsessed with to the BellaStylista whose style is just goals, here are this week’s fab finds.
As we make our descent into fall, leaving summer and all the colors and silhouettes we embraced in order to have our best Hot Girl Summer, we are naturally making a deliberate shift in our color palettes. Ditching the bright colors of summer for the more earthy tones of fall has us turning to this dress from The Kemist Store – owned by fashion influencer Sade Akinosho. The practical cut – perfect for the fall weather as well as the tropics, the details – equal part trendy and equal part classics and the color is just perfect for Fall.
Summer may be over but you still need sunscreen. It’s 2019, if your skincare shelf still lacks sunscreen then we have some questions for you. Black Girl Sunscreen deals with a fundamental problem most black people have with using sunscreen: the white cast it leaves over your skin. Black Girl Sunscreen doesn’t just protect you from the sun, it moisturizes and leaves your skin feeling supple and looking glowy rather than ashy.
One of the best parts of Lagos is the in-exhaustive dining options. Sadly, navigating these many options is almost a full-time job but one restaurant that will most likely tick all the boxes in your list is Danfo Bistro. Aesthetics, affordability and well-prepared meals. It is the full package.
It’s not every day one of Nigeria’s biggest musical export releases a new song. Especially one like Ghetto Boy which possess all the elements we have come to love about Wizkid over the years. An anthem that is decidedly Lagos, decidedly Nigerian and a pure musical masterpiece.
When we think of fashionable South Africans, Boitumelo Thulo is among the first to come to mind. Her impeccable outfits, her always beat face and how she always exudes confidence regardless of the time of day.
