I love it in Milan but I’m mostly there for work and buying for my store. Oftentimes, I get so caught up with business and showroom meetings and before you know it, it’s time leave.
On this day, I decided to step away from work and take some time to enjoy being in a city I love.

There is nothing wrong in slowing things down and making a deliberate effort to enjoy the moment.

Yes, I was in Milan for work but this time, I made a conscious effort to have some fun, enjoy a good meal and strike a pose. ?

Yippee! It’s my birthday and I’m very excited.

I am especially grateful to God for adding another year to my life. I feel blessed as I am certainly living the best life possible.

I wish I could be back home to celebrate with you all, but I decided to do something different this year.

I am on vacation with some close friends, also celebrating their birthdays in March. We are enjoying some ‘Girl-time’ on an Island at the Dominican Republic and it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

Nonetheless, I can never too busy to thank you for the love and support always. Thank you for all the birthday greetings and well wishes.

Guess what? one lucky subscriber will win a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes from my closet as part of this year’s ‘ AbiKD Birthday Giveaway’.

Kindly Follow @akd_closet on Instagram to catch the details. Don’t forget to tell a friend.

Love you guys.


Keeping my luggage as light as possible is my goal when I travel, sometimes I succeed other times its an epic fail. It also depends on the duration of the trip. It is very vital to pack all essentials at first without having to deal with excess baggage. I try to discipline myself by taking the most necessary and versatile items. I take a lot of separates so that i can mix and match for different looks. A white dress shirt because I can wear it with jeans or a skirt .

A black dress because you can never go wrong with black and I can wear it with flats in the day time and dress it up with heels at night time. My running shoes for exercising and if I decide to go on a hike. If I’m going to an exotic destination my bikini, hats and sandals are a must!

For my beauty regimen I ensure that my sunscreen isn’t left out , my lipstick, facial wash, and powder are also taken with me. A few accessories and my perfumes because ABI KD has to smell delightful.


Love, Abi.
