Hello 2014!

by Zainab Ashadu


I hope that your January has gotten off to a great start! Apart from the reality of being devastatingly broke, I love January for the feeling of New Beginnings. In the weeks since my last entry, I have gone on a mini holiday by myself with the intention of escaping Lagos, but found that every other Lagosian had the same idea. I have discovered 2 inches worth of proof that one's metabolism really does slow down when one hits 30, I have come to the conclusion that just because I have a box of 12 cupcakes it doesn't mean I must eat them all, and I have cut off my big fro into a smaller one.

There are also lots of exciting new things happening at Zashadu detailed in the pictures below. Enjoy! x 

Zashadu will be stocked at the Mayfair branch of Wolf and Badger, London, from the 2nd of February!
