Autumn in all its glory

STYLE TIP: For an effortless  yet durable (enough to climb trees) Autumn outfit, Pair jeans with worn leather boots and a comfortable heavy cotton sweater. Cotton is best because it is breathable if you get a bit sweaty and also washable if you get a bit dusty from playing too hard.

Let’s start at the very beginning… ME


Hey hey hey….so as I transition into new content and a new name for my blog, I’d like to start sharing a bit a little about me with you… here is  the first bit about me:

I’m Buki. And I am the Buki-est buki that I can be!
I like my name a lot!
My full name means: God has blessed me.
When people see my name prior to meeting me, they often assume that I’m Japanese.
One of my favorite things about my name is how cute it sounds when kids say it: “boopi”, “buckey”, “boobee”.
I was born in Nigeria.
I was made by GOD.
