Nnóó! Pęlę O! Sannu! Akwaaba! Salut! Ciao! Namaste! Hallo! Hello!
Welcome to my Fashion and Lifestyle Blog
My childhood memories always brings with it lots of nostalgia; growing up in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria and how my mum would always pair my elder sister and me with same outfit as if we were twins (lol). Except that my elder sister was a lot taller than I was then.
Now all that seems like a distant echo a long way off and as the years rolled on, I began discovering my love for clothes, shoes, bags, skincare, make-up and of course posing in front of the lens. Not only did I discover my passion, my family & friends saw that in me and kept encouraging me to follow my heart. For me, I just loved fixing people’s wardrobe. My mum and siblings never left the house without my endorsement, same applied to my friends as well. I enjoyed doing it and I always added a little extra to every outfit to make it unique or should we say “extraordinary”.
Looking back at my University days, a great deal of my spare time was spent with roommates and friends talking about fashion, sharing little tips and tricks with them of how to manage their wardrobes, helping with sorting out their outfits, applying makeup for their church services and events. All these I did at no cost.
Over the last seven years, I built a career in the Sales and Marketing of different Products, Solutions and Services in Ghana and Nigeria. While at work, I was a major influence to colleagues and clients. Not a single day passed without receiving compliments in my choice of style.I began receiving requests from people who desired to have similar outfits to mine. What I did was to shop for them on-line, give them the cost including a little commission for myself and voila, we were in business. Whenever I travelled outside Nigeria, I made out time to shop for friends at a reduced cost.
Even though I did enjoy all of those, I wasn’t having that maximum fulfillment within me because I wanted to be heard.
In 2015, I decided to incorporate this passion of mine under one platform Crochet&Wool Int’l.
Today, I am a Business Development Specialist, Wardrobe Manager, Make-up and Skincare consultant, and the new feather to my cap, A Fashion and lifestyle Blogger.
I’m driven by a simple, chic yet classy and sexy pieces whilst exuding sophistication.
Mel’s Crochet and Wool is that platform where you would find unique styled outfits posted, hair & Skincare tips, Insight & Lifestyle etc. I promise it’s going to be an exciting journey with me.
I’m blessed with the most amazing family who have taught me to be the best I can be not neglecting the presence of God in my life, very wonderful friends like you who support and encourage me to be what I am born to be.
My fashion icon, Coco Channel- a French fashion designer who ruled over Parisian Haute Couture for almost a decade once said “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little. If only out of politeness. And then you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a appointment with destiny and its best to be as pretty as possible for destiny”
Hope to see you here more often!!!
