Skincare: I Started Off This Year With Beryl Body Oil!

Now a huge “cheers to that to me!”. I’m finally kicking off one of my skincare goals!

So, I promised to take care of my skin especially my face this year and i have taken the first steps. I purchased a product on STORE.KAMDORA.COM and I didn’t regret my choice at all.

I have heard how effective natural oils are to the body and I decided to give it a try. At first I had a little confusion with either buying a body butter or body oil but the latter was more affordable in terms of cash.


The Beryl body oil contains ALmond oil, Avocado oil,carrot oil,coconut oil,grapeseed oil,glycerin and fragrance. As light as the almond oil, coconut oil, carrot oil and grapeseed oil are, it lasts long on the skin. It penetrates easily and has a lovely fragrance.

I started using it as soon as the harmattan popped out from nowhere and it has never left my skin dry or crackly. I only use it at night just because i have an oily face and if i wash my face at night,I use the tip of my finger to dab on it.

The glycerin is the major reason why I  purchased the body oil  and it’s function is used to treat many oily skin conditions, like acne,skin infections, wrinkles and fine lines. Glycerin attracts moisture onto your skin which is why it is considered a humectant. … Glycerin in lotions or other skin care products can help prevent or combat dry skin.

I have used it for two weeks and it feels really good on my skin. It leaves my skin shiny and lasts for a whole day. However, I feel that using so much oil on one’s skin attracts dirt that’s why I try to wash and reapply at night.

Do you feel the same way as well? Have you tried the Beryl body oil? Let’s talk in the comment section.


#AlaraLagos x #Vliscoandco: A Cultural Evening!

Hey guys, 

How is this season treating you? I have been way too busy but here’s something from #lastfridaynight!

In one sentence, I can say that Nigerians are “woke” people. This is my first luxury event in Lagos. I have been quite a few places but a luxury event is way too different. In a luxury event, attendees are only “creme-de-la-creme, then you have a reserved spot selected media company. 


Last Friday night, I had the opportunity of going to the most talked about luxury stores in Lagos-Alara Lagos. At a point, it was one of my “must-go” places in Lagos but didn’t have the pocket to go (if you know what I mean) and now, I had a free ticket to go do some content.

So, Vlisco organised an cultural event with AWCA (A White Space Creative Agency) at Alara Lagos to show a presentation by a team of Nigerian talents/creatives to give their own idea of creativity using Vlisco prints. It’s a search for what the future of fashion holds for Vlisco wax Company by Nigerian creatives. Actually, this means a lot!

The creative team- Tokyo James as a menswear fashion designer, Daniel Obasi as art direction, photography & styling, Karo Akpokiere as the illustrator, Abiola Oulusola as womenswear fashion designer and others.

The team came up with something super creative and I couldn’t be happier about the collection. I loved the details about the Tokyo James collection because it had ant and flamingo appliques on the fabrics. It showed the bold, daring man and a risk taker in terms of style!

The Alara store has interesting details and would make your mouth water at each luxury item. From the store, there were body grooming products such as skincare line-Epara, there were other luxury Italian perfumes as well.

I thought the only places I could find mules and luxury clutch bags were online stores like Asos, Zara, and the likes but Alara stores featured each of these expensive items. I loved the artistic display of cultural items like cultural/ print-inspired chairs, there were beaded crowns, bracelets, all the things you would admire in a cultural setting. The architectural structure of the building played a huge role in the comfortability and coziness of the store. It’s a space well managed and well thought out. Just like a rich home, you find staircases leading you to the direction of the items you want to purchase.

What would I do in a luxury store than to take good pictures of the items and remembering a quote one of my American friends taught me..“the best luxury is looking at things”- from Erin. I looked, gazed, stared until I felt awkward but I wished there was more than enough to pick one or two things.Someday I would!

I couldn’t go to the famous restaurant to eat because it was dark and of course one drink wouldn’t cause so much harm, would it? (Let me know if you have been there)!

Ditch That Crap! Here Are 5 Reasons I Would Purchase A HeartDictions Planner!


I could put my words on replay! I need a Heartdictions Planner (2018). I wouldn’t have made such a decision if I didn’t try out the 2017 planner.

Growing up in a strict home has taught me some life-long lessons but there were lessons I discovered myself! My teenage years were full of “you need to manage your time”, “you need to multitask” and “give your younger ones work to do” (meaning division of labour).

Basically, I had a body clock and a brain to tell me “this is time for this or that” but never felt the need to write it down somewhere. Fast forward my adulting years, I grew up with that but still had some disorganisations pending in my life.

Not until I decided I wanted my life planned, wanted my goals met and be precise about certain things in life I made the decision to help me get an “organiser”. Sorry, but phone or google calendars aren’t really effective for me because even if I set an alarm and I’m still not done with my an activity, I still postpone it or ignore.


From the first page, you can tell it’s a planner that has seen better days. I used the life out of the planner and it definitely served me well! I usually put my signature on any book I buy so, there was my stamp on the top right.

Without much fuss, I chose the adire-inspired design of the hardcover planner, the most important reasons are the benefits which has helped me in deciding why I’m getting the 2018 Heartdicitons planner.


1: I got my activities written down in the dates: In January, I noticed there were a lot of activities in January I had to do so, I made a one-month “writing down of activities” and ticked each activity done for every day.

At the end of every month, there are weekly goals for the whole month to keep you going. Also, the monthly budget at the end of the month to help you keep track of how much you spent and saved.


What my January activities look like: I ticked the days I either forgot or didn’t do a major task.

2: Each month has an inspiring quote: Trust me, I look forward to each month, the words speak to me. There are challenging times I really needed motivational quotes and found those quite helpful. Some of my favourite quotes are; “the secret to getting ahead is getting started” (January quote). Trust me, I needed that push, January is a month to put in work and focus. Seeing that made me put some effort. “good things are going to happen“(November quote, “keep going” (July quote), “never stop believing” (September quote)

3: Evaluating my goals: At some point I needed to know how far I have gone with my goals those things I achieved this year and thank God for dates, I could remember the exact day it happened. Halfway through, the Heartdictions planner has a space to review your goals with the monthly and weekly pages.


June for me was a month I didn’t accomplish much. As clearly seen, I had to be at the NYSC camp and when I got back, I needed to plan myself on how to get a PPA, finance my transportation etc. So, there was a lot of thinking and errands to run without documentation.

2018 planner-thelazyoutfitter-heartdiction

Here’s a snippet of my February monthly overview. I marked some major goals in February, had some To Do investments etc.

4: I found the colouring pages therapeutic for me: Trust me, the last time I drew anything or coloured stuff was in primary school. I saw the colouring pages and I thought “whoa, what would I colour stars, lines, birds etc” not until last week Sunday I was in the car (back seat) and I got out real crayons to colour one of the most important months to me (May). It was a complicated Owl but as soon as I started colouring, I felt relieved and de-stressed. I was happy to bring life to the inanimate drawing! Honestly, it reminded me of my love for art and why I hadn’t gone to University of Lagos to study visual arts (much pained). I expect to see more art in the 2018 edition.



There are only 3 cons I have here, the price, weight and omitted month.

Price: The planner is about N5,000 plus N1,000 for delivery. In total N6000. I thought this was a bit costly because I checked other planners and they were reasonably N3,000-N4000. But then,the others has dates, TO DO lists that’s all. I didn’t really like the colours. But then HeartDictions planner has competitive advantage. It’s beautiful designs, the functions e.g budget review, weekly goals, monthly goals etc. The printed colours didn’t fade, it’s durable, the spiral binding is epic and all. Honestly, 6k kinda-sorta peppered me but I considered that the cost of printing was expensive indeed. I personally wanted to do a printing on a piece of cloth and the prices weren’t friendly. So, I can relate. But then again, if I could purchase a N6,000 shoes or clothe set for N12,000, I shouldn’t have my big mouth complaining about important things to help me through life.

Weight: Not much of a problem but anytime I carried my laptop bag to work, the weight of the planner didn’t help that much. I thought it was a bit heavy but if you want the book so contain all those fun, important things, why complain about it?

Omitted Month: Yea, some things were done manually about the planner . The month of October was omitted (mistakenly) and I wasn’t productive that month because by then, I was used to writing stuff out and marking schedule etc. I complained to the brand owner and she apologised sincerely for it and gave me an amazing discount pls FREE DELIVERY (let it sink). So, this alone is encouraging to close my eyes and get the 2018 planner. Talk about customer service, they scored a huge point!

I’m glad I bought the 2017 planner, I’m looking forward to the 2018 but I need to save some change for it. Latest by end of December or January, I’d purchase a new one. So, if you are looking for something productive to do, BUY A HEARTDICTION PLANNER. Save N1,000 every two weeks starting from now, before end of January, you would have saved enough to purchase one.

I Chose A Pyjamas Top & Styled It At The GTB Fashion Weekend!

This post is long overdue but it has to be written!



The Guaranty Trust Bank is one of the five-star commercial banks in Nigeria. They are known for their CSR and recently, their contribution to building Small & Medium Enterprise in the Food industry and the fashion industry.

Just in its second year of carrying out this project, this year turned out to be so much fun and aesthetically pleasing! Unlike the previous GTBank Fashion Weekend last year, there were props, clean mobile toilets and a spacious event centre. There was the Pop Up Sales stores by different Nigerian brands in the building and outside and the prices were relatively affordable.

I wanted the Masterclasses but managed to attend one-The Vanessa Kingori Class. She’s the New British Vogue Publisher. There was a lot to learn from her. 

I couldn’t have gone alone duh..I went with my partner-in-crime (@wanshygirl) and we had as much fun as possible. If I could I would drop all the pictures here! Also, I met a friend I hadn’t seen for 15 years! 

See details below!





It was a FRUGA-WANDER-kinda journey, we hopped from a BRT bus, Keke Napep to trekking! What a life!





Met my childhood friend I hadn’t seen for 15 solid years. She’s now a vlogger (@nubiaqween). How time flies!



I decided to rock the pyjamas trend just because it was a big trend earlier this year and haven’t even tried it. Pjs can be in floral prints, cotton or silk but best worn or styled in silk. I paired it up with a slim-fit denim with some Parisian vibe! I also loved the Graphic tee and culottes Ebun styled herself in!

Outfit details:

Top: PJs top 

Pants: Denim

Shoes: White Mountain shoes

Feature: What Chimamanda Says About Fashion!

Hey guys,

Today this post isn’t going to be like the normal “how  I wore this” or “how I styled that” or “how I thrifted this”. I can’t possibly be the only interesting event going on in the fashion 

I love Chimamanda Ngozi-Adichie so much. I want to express my thoughts wildly like her in writing and in fashion. She has a thing for Nigerian fashion and hence has been patronising a lot of Nigerian brands. 

chimamanda, thelazyoutfitter

See her slaying in the Nigerian brand (The Ladymaker) amongst many other clothes she rocks to the red carpet. When interviewed about her fashion and style she said a lot! Where you expecting any controversial statements? Well, she always speaks “Igbo proverbs” and always leaves an epistle…Did you even know she won best dressed in school?

I’d leave you to her epistle, please read!

My mother always dressed us well. Me in little girl dresses cinched at the waist, my brothers in suits and well-ironed shirts. To go out, she said, we had to di ka mmadu, which translates literally to look like a person. We spoke both Igbo and English at home, but she always said this in Igbo, the more poetic language, as though to validate with metaphor her belief in dressing well. There were frequent market visits to buy yards of fabric, trips to the tailor to be measured. But store-bought clothes — we called them ready-made — were the highlights, preferred partly because the sewing had no imperfections, and partly because tailors were cheap and ubiquitous, and so the less common became the more desirable. If my professor father traveled to Europe for a conference, I looked forward to dresses from abroad, and I loved them more fiercely for being foreign. My much-older sisters, Ijeoma and Uche, were stylish figures, one in medical school and the other studying pharmacy, and I spent my teenage years wearing their hand-me-downs. I remember a silver-coloured skirt suit from the conservative Ijeoma, with an elegantly adult peplum. I wore it to church at 15. And from the more inventive Uche, a fitted dress in cream jersey, two sashes draped in front, from shoulder to hip, crossing at the middle. And black harem trousers, with ruching that gathered at my calves, so strange that my classmates giggled when I wore them to a friend’s birthday party. I loved those clothes, incongruous though they might have been. In them, I felt free of self-consciousness, comfortable enough to laugh along to the well-meaning puzzlement of my peers.

When I studied medicine for a year at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka I was voted Best Dressed Girl. A classmate said: “Congratulations, even though you wear some things that I don’t understand.” I laughed. Perhaps he meant the green crochet top and black bell-bottom trousers I had found in my mother’s old trunk from the 1960s. I was drawn to clothes that were slightly unusual, quietly quirky, as long as they never sank to the level of costume. If I had a style mantra it was to wear what I liked. Yet when I moved to the US to attend college, I began to wear clothes I disliked. My fiction was getting published, I was keen to be taken seriously, and I had noticed the backward treatment of women in western culture: women interested in clothes or make-up were labeled frivolous, their intelligence became suspect, and they risked being easily dismissed in intellectual circles. So I wore what I imagined would make me look worthy of seriousness. It took years, and success, before I began again to wear the clothes I truly wanted to wear. I gloried in buying ready-made clothing at American discount stores, and later when I could afford to, in department stores. I discovered online shopping. I browsed and ordered and returned.

Looking at Nigerian designs online became my favourite time-waster. Here was bliss: clothes cut to account for breasts, an ethos of clothing as pleasure rather than status, the casual presence of sleeves. I took screenshots of what I liked. My cousin Ogechukwu placed the orders. They were delivered to my Lagos home. If I happened to be in the US, they would be sent to me there. Some of the clothes I fell for as soon as I put them on. Others did not live up to their promise. There was an abundance of poor-quality zippers that needed changing. I discovered, above all else, that price is not an accurate gauge of quality and that there is far more talent than opportunity and infrastructure, a fact perhaps true of most industries in Nigeria. So far, my favourite brands are Fia Factory and Grey, the former beautifully offbeat, the latter timeless with deft touches of originality, both careful about fabric and finish. To a Diorfashion show in Paris, I wore a dress by Ladunni Lambo, a young designer who might well become a star because of her rare mix of consciousness and introspection. Her deconstructed dresses made from stiff aso-oke feel like exquisite armours. I thought I disliked sequins until I found a top by Wanger Ayu, with self-assured furry green sleeves and a silver-sequinned bodice. I wore it, with patterned trousers by Grey, to the New York Times’ “Times Talks” conversation series, and felt vainly pleased with the surprise of people who did not think the clothes were Nigerian.

Ngozi chimamanda Adichie

But my best-loved purchase is a white dress from the improbably named label She’s Deluxe, owned by a young woman in Abuja. A modern long-sleeved cotton shift with a sly cut-out at the shoulder, which I wore to the American Academy of Arts and Letters induction in New York. I recently ordered another dress from her. “Pay a deposit so I can go to the market and buy the fabric,” she told my cousin, which I found an endearing example of Nigerian striving. I decided to call it my Project Wear Nigerian and planned to have photos put up on my Facebook page, the only social media I have. But my 20-year-old twin nieces Chisom and Amaka, full of that terrifying millennial savoir-faire, laughed. “Aunty you should have an Instagram page,” Amaka said. “We’ll handle it for you.” They were unhappy with the first photos I took. Not bright or clear enough, they said. Their eyes are conditioned to the ersatz poses and stylised photos of social media, where people dress specifically to be photographed in well-lit spaces. Book events are not usually photo-friendly, too dark, too indifferent to optics. And it doesn’t help that I loathe being photographed. A camera before me results automatically in my being knotted with awkwardness: finger-twiddling, breath-holding, mouth-twisted, body off-kilter. Now, six months later, my nieces have made peace with the photos not being Instagram-perfect. “At least they’re real,” they said, as scant consolation. We have a routine: I have pictures taken at my events and I send them to my best friend Uju, my cousin Ogechukwu and my nieces. They make the selection, as I am known to have terrible taste in my own photos, and the photo is put up, with the brands’ Instagram handles. I have practical hopes for my project, that it shows Nigerian fashion as it is, not a museum of “traditional African” clothes but a vibrant and diverse industry, and that it brings recognition to the brands. But it is also a personal and political statement. At a time of political uncertainty, when I find myself questioning the future of the two countries I call home — Nigeria and the US — this project is an act of benign nationalism, a paean to peaceful self-sufficiency, a gesture towards what is still possible; it is my uncomplicated act for complicated times.

How wouldn’t you love Chimamanda! I bet if she takes any chance at being a designer, she would nail it and be successful at it!

Fashion: Summer To Fall Outfit Challenge In AUrate New York!

AUrate New York, is a company that offers contemporary yet timeless real gold jewelry made in NYC. Social impact drives what they do, so all of their jewelry is handmade in New York City from ethically sourced materials. No conflict minerals at all. They also give back to economically disadvantaged school children with each purchase of our jewelry.

They are currently running a  project which aims to highlight jewelry and how it can play into a “summer” and a “fall” outfit. Ever since I became acquainted with the jewelry company via Instagram, I fell in love with these pieces.

I particularly don’t love chunky accessory or try any harder to get all the accessory on my body but if there is the need, I’d use it anyways. Talk about cocktails, red carpets, meets and greets etc.

The feature of this jewelry is what I love about it! It’s simple, classic and timeless. I bet it’s only sophisticated people who can understand this principle. You don’t need to have 10 gold chains on your neck to look classy but a minimal, classy and sophisticated bracelet, rings or neck piece will do all that job.


I decided to pair up these pieces of jewelry and from summer time to Fall. Since Fall is almost over, here is your last-minute guide to translating your jewelry pieces from summer to Fall.

It’s that easy: For summer, I prefer lighter colours and cotton fabrics so I went with my cold-shoulder ruffle top and blue shorts. I completed my look with these minimalist but classy pieces of jewelry from Aurate company.


Aurate 2


This is a perfect gold earring I would love to put round one of my ears and I’m good to go!


For Fall, I went for an androgynous look. I used my fave Fall colours (Olive green top) matched it with my brogues and of course, my new found love AURATE NWE YORK!

Don’t you just love how elegant these pieces are and yet sophisticated?!

Must Read: My Thoughts On the Book- 29, Single & Nigerian!

I wrote my thoughts down on Kamdora but I’m willing to share her because I can’t type twice. LOL

22221008_136009933697782_1241294446746664960_nTake a seat please, you are in for a rollercoaster ride!

When I first saw this book, 29, Single & Nigerian on Instagram I had a clear idea of what I was expecting from this book. Being a 20-something and living in Nigeria has its perks and definitely the scary parts.

29, Single & Nigerian gives a relatable experience of every “20-something” year old Nigerian woman. From her experiences, while growing up, her NYSC experience, her endless job hunt as a fresh graduate and her love life. As complicated as things got, Edikan rose to fame through her gory experience.

As a “20-something” year old, there are expectations from even the tiniest part of the society-Family about your life. While some have gone through these pressures and come out victorious others have let the pressures consume them.

Edikan Umana, is the main character in the book. Her life as a 29-year-old is full of battles from every step of her journey to freedom, independence, and self-acceptance. Edikan has been the “victim of circumstances” but she finds her way through it at every point in time.

When a 29-year-old writes “I wondered how I was going to pick up the pieces of my life. 29, unemployed, unmarried, homeless, no source of income and almost broke save for the money I had in my account..” you wonder how a woman got to such a stock up situation and to worsen it all in Lagos! the most unfriendliest environment.

Edikan being the second daughter of her parents has always been brilliant and strived for excellence in her studies. Like most poverty-stricken home, there are lots of circumstances from the inability of one’s parents to sponsor one’s education to poor feeding, lack of good friendship, prying eyes and ” yammerings” of neighbours. It doesn’t end there, if the poor situation of things continues, the parents are bound to “share” the children to other people who can take care of them.

This was Umoh (Edikan’s sister’s) situation but Edikan was the “sacrificial lamb. She felt strong enough to live with her Anty Agnes. Her decision to live with her changed her notion about boys, religion, relationship etc. 


I was definitely not going to skip this part! It is not expected that a 29-year-old isn’t married in a society like ours. There would be family pressures and general pressures from the society one lives in. One cannot escape the gossips, hardships, struggles of being single. Men would always want to take advantage of such women.

Edikan has not had the sweetest experiences when it came to love. She never met a man who didn’t want sex from her apart from Ifeanyi who wanted a relationship with her but she rejected him most of the times. Edikan was “raped” (refer to page 87) by Austin, was romantically involved with Nathan (a younger guy she met in camp), she was almost raped by Chuka (a “good Samaritan”), her virginity was taken by George and she “curved” Ifeanyi.

Her parents tried to betroth her to Ndufreke but In all of these, she came out strong thanks to her friend Bibi who had been her friend through the storms of life.


Bibi is an epitome of true friendship- a friend that is by your side through thick and thin. In Bibi, she found solace, strength, energy and motivation. She found a new strength to overcome her circumstances. Without the presence of BIbi, Edikan would probably not have gone this far.


There is always light at the end of the tunnel they say, Edikan’s journey had been bitter-sweet but this time it was going to be sweeter. The beam of hope shone when Ifeanyi (who she had always rejected) proposed that she made her diary into a book. First off, she learnt how to reconnect to God and started her journey afresh.

29, Single and Nigerian is a must read!!


Don’t allow the pressures from family to get you to marry hurriedly.

Even if you are VIRGIN even at 50, never be pressured to have sex, never be desperate. You alone should be comfortable in your decision to be a virgin and when it’s the right time you feel like being intimate, do it the right way (my opinion).

Everything will work out fine, just keep pushing!

As for rapists, men who take advantage of women, your punishment is coming sooner for you.

If opportunity doesn’t present itself, be the opportunity!

Accessory: Retro Casio Watch WR10M & Casio Gents Digital Sports Watch for N2,500 At Obalende Market!

casio watch

Enough said about retro shirts, retro shoes, bags what about other accessories like watches?

If you read my article about my summer gifts which included a Jessica Carlye watch (which I lost while hustling for a bus to the office), it made me go back to my Casio silver watch. Then again I had to buy another Casio but of course thrifting!

Watches may not really be in trend the way clothes, shoes and bags are but it’s an important accessory that needs to be carried around. If you notice quite well, people of class and style wear Casio- FACT!

I personally can’t do without a watch, it makes my wrist feel NAKED!

The retro watch making a huge comeback is the CASIO watch and I have been obsessed for 3 years. Although Daniel Wellington wrist watch wanted to take over but Casio has some qualities I rather stick to.

Some retro watches you must have known while growing up are;

  2. G-SHOCK

At least I’m that old to remember those..lol

Things you don’t know about Casio Watches:

  1. G-Shock is a line of watches manufactured by Casio, designed to resist mechanical shock and vibration. Its full form is Gravitational Shock
  2. Even Baby G watches are made by Casio companies
  3. Other Casio products are; cash registers, hand terminals, projectors, pianos, digital cameras and label printers.
  4. The Casio batteries last up to 10years (ah..long enough to meet my first child)
Casio watch
Casio watches (WR10m and Casio Gents)

I went online for a new Casio watch as a “big girl” that I am, only to find out that that one-time “mallam watch” of a Casio watch price ranges from N6,500- N35,000 !. Nooo…I wasn’t  having it and neither was my bank account at the moment. I resolved thrifting and found two Casio retro watches I’m gonna keep rocking for life! 

I found the Casio WR10M and the Casio Gents’ Digital Sports Watch (black) which in total costs N2,500 (uhuh…say that again) when I could have spent N18,500 altogether! (Lucky me)

Yaba Market Haul (Yaba Market Haul: N7,000 Tough Leather Bags!)


OMG!!! I bought This H&M Neon Green 4 Inches Heels For N1000 ($2.79)!!


Happy Independence day people!! (In Nigeria).

I’m literally swooning right now over my 4 inches heels!! I mean it when I say  I bought it for N1000 ($2.78) while going home one night from work.

You can buy the best things on impulse (one thing I’m grateful for impulse buying) in Nigerian markets especially evening time.

You can read up about my bag haul in Yaba here (Yaba Market Haul: N7,000 Tough Leather Bags

I bought these brand new heels at Oshodi Oke one evening. I actually staggered there. It’s close to KWIK BET. That’s where the man places his weird shoes on the floor!


When I got there I was attracted by the price but I did not expect to see these brand new heels!! Like omggggg….i grabbed them like there isn’t going to be tomorrow! He was even pressurizing me to buy the shoes because his “customers” don’t like the colour and haven’t bought it since he came to sell. (chineke meee….)

In my mind I was stuttering (who doesn’t want a neon green heels) and the shoes are in perfect condition, quite new. You can confirm from the picture. I couldn’t believe my eyes…no I didn’t even haggle on the price. I slipped the 1k note and dashed out for good!




One thing I really appreciate impulse buying is, you get the best deals but would you always have the money and the time?

P.S. I went for another “alaroro” shoe shopping but couldn’t find the man. I will always be on the look out and if I find him again i’m getting those digits!!


Have you both an amazing deal on impulse and how much?

Pls like. share and comment!!
