“No man lives to himself and no man dies to himself”. To say that you have absolutely no measure of influence on the people around you is the greatest lie you can ever tell yourself.
Welcome to my Blog!
I’m Yewande Bokinni, but friends call me ‘Wande’ or ‘Wendy’ (I like both). I am Proudly Nigerian and a graduate of Educational Management. Some of my favorite things in the world are going to the movies, brightly colored designs (on fabrics, walls, books, whatever!), statement tee-shirts, chocolates, cakes and ice-cream. Yeah I’m a foodie. I love to inspire others by sharing my unique experiences. I also love to dance, sing and act in the shower. Trust me when I say I’m a huge star in there!
With my interests revolving around Writing, Fashion, Arts and Media, one could say that I am a ‘creative soul’ who is passionate about helping young people discover and embrace who they are and achieve their goals.
I am a style enthusiast, my love for fashion and personal style has evolved over the years from matching my outfits myself from the age of 8, being called a ‘shopaholic’, saving tons of pictures of outfits I would love to recreate, giving my tailors a hard time (Lol), doing mental adjustments on pieces displayed on mannequins at boutiques to finally starting my blog. I am also working on a casual wears line featuring fun and colorful pieces for both sexes. The transition has been amazing and I’m really excited to embark on this journey of documenting my personal style and my journey towards self-discovery and self-love.
wandebokinni.com is an inspirational and lifestyle blog focusing majorly on life and style, inspiring young people to be the best versions of themselves, and using personal style as a tool to influence the world around them positively.
There are five categories on my blog meaning every blog post I create will fall under one of these categories.
Be Inspired• This part of the blog is where I share inspirational posts to help us do better and be better. It could be a story, a short poem, book review or an abstract from a book that I love, lessons learnt overtime or even a personal victory. Basically, we are helping one another grow and achieve our dreams.
Style• This is where I capture and document my personal style, outfit inspirations and my take on fashion trends. Let’s just say we’ll play dress-up here. Also every month, one post will be dedicated to a style series e.g What I Wore Series, Made in Nigeria Series, One Week Work Outfits and lots more.
Lifestyle• Here, I share personal experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly!), everything from events, hangouts, and restaurant reviews to what happened on the bus on my way to work (Lol).
Beauty• Well why not? Because every girl deserves to feel beautiful, we will be talking about skin care routines, make up and natural hair (yup! I’m nappy haired!)
Travel• Honestly? this part of the blog was created to encourage me to travel more, visit more places and explore. I can literally count the number of places that I have visited (I hope to change that).
I have loved fashion and writing for as long as I can remember and I’m very enthusiastic about sharing my personal experiences and helping others with the knowledge I have.
Blogging also allows me to fuse all my interests (writing, fashion, photography and all) into one beautiful space. I have so many ideas in my head and I feel like I’m going to explode if I don’t start sharing them with the world.
My blog is my voice, I hope to reach out to as many people as I can, share my success stories, lessons learnt from past experiences, and the little things that inspire me from day to day and of course give them insights into my personal style!
Now that you have read all about me it’s time to meet you!
Join the Squad!
