My Daily Mantra is “LIFE IS ALL ABOUT CHOICES”

Four decades ago, an adorable African Princess was born in Lagos (Nigeria).

She was no ordinary baby girl according to her mum as she was destined for greatness.

She was called TINA NDIDI UGO.

Welcome to My World!

I believe anyone can achieve greatness hence my resolve to work towards leaving my mark in my chosen career and my legacy on planet earth for when i’m no more.

I’ve also come to realize that We are all unique and special in different ways. As I progress through my journey in life, I keep uncovering new discoveries about me.

One of the discoveries is that I’ve always loved writing but never imagined in my wildest dreams that a time would come when I’ll start sharing my write-ups through blogging with the rest of the world…. Alas a new dawn begins for me.

Who am I?

Several people have different definitions and opinions on who they think I am however I’ll say the following describes me best:

I’m just the girl next door who is passionate about fashion and style, travel, interior decor, luxury, shopping and photography. I also enjoy listening to music, reading and writing as a hobby.

An open-minded, free spirited, adventurous, stylish, fashionable, creative, fun loving and elegant go-getter. A fashion addict who also love and enjoy luxury including the finer things of life. I’m an extroverted Introvert who absolutely enjoys and loves her space. A perfectionist to a fault, organised, independent, vain, optimistic, blunt, honest,emotional, kind, compassionate, diplomatic, sensitive, quite egocentric, domineering, multi-tasking, amiable, reflective, bold, confident, assertive, stubborn and complicated.

I Just LOVE Me!
