HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Wow! 2011 sure went by in a flashhh! So grateful for all the blessings this year. Personally i feel like God's special child. God is so so good to me. Having friends and family that love me, a man that cares for me and loves me to pieces, being able to get up, go to work and get paid for doing exactly what i like to do is all kinds of cool to me.



As we all go to church, family gatherings, parties, etc to thank God for our lives and all the lessons learnt this year. Let us please remember those people who are unable to do the same because maybe they are lying sick in a hospital fighting for their lives. Lets say a little prayer for them


Peace, Love and Sequins.

ONE OUFIT 2 WAYS

So on the 18th of December my friend Adaora invited me for an event she had been working on. The COPA Lagos Beach soccer event. It was the same day as the L'ESPACE launch and also Rhythm Unplugged Comedy Show. As usual the what to wear question came up. I had worked all day the prevoious day. I was feeling so sick and didn't really have the time to be changing outfits from the beach event to the other more dressy events.

So here's what i did. I went this way to COPA Lagos



COPA Lagos was a very fun event. I've never seen so many beautiful people gathered together in one place before. I hear they have another one in June and dude i'm so in there! My sickness disappeared and i almost didn't wanna leave until i remembered i had to dash to L'ESPACE to pick up some jewellery for Studio 53 Extra shoot the following day.

Afterwards, i got rid of the satchel, took off the ballet flats and threw on a balck blazer, patent leather heels and a purse and ran off to meet my friend Chinwe at Eko hotel for Rhythm Unplugged. My main reason for going was to see Mike Epps but he didnt show up because he was scared of Boko Haram. I cant blame him tho.

What I Want for Christmas

Its almost the end of the year. Apologies for not blogging in a while. I've had a busy past few weeks of endless shoots and fittings, planning for a fashion show, drawing up guest lists etc.

Lagos is bustling and everyone is catching the Christmas buzz. You cant be in Lagos and honestly say you are bored at this time. mba. Except you are leaving under some rock in Badagry.

Its a few days to Christmas and we can still dream. Here are some of the things I've been eyeing for a while.


Jessica Simpson Waleo Pumps in nude.
If you know me personally, you probably know I've wanted this for a while now. I first saw Stella Uzo of J'adore-Fashion wearing it here. These shoes speak to me in a language only me can understand. I found it but it wasn't in my size. Even Stella tried to help me find it but she couldn't find the right colour. *bbm sad face*


Rebirth Leather Bag.


Some Tiffany Amber.


Some more.


And even more. Bawse!

Tiffany Amber recently gave out a N100,000 gift card on  http://www.hautefashionafrica.com  How i'd dreamed i would win. But i already won a gorgeous Mataano dress so i guess they had to give it to someone else.



Black tulle skirt. 
As soon as i catch a break, I may have to roll up my sleeves and go find some lace or sequinned fabric in Balogun market. I have to make this myself if i don't find one soon. I keep pairing it up with all my blouses in my head. Lol

Eva by Eva Longoria. 
I'm not really into Celeb Fragrances. I've tried Paris Hilton and Britney Spears Fantasy and that's it. But this just smells heavenly. I can't find it in Lagos though. Love it.

That's all for now.

Peace, Love and Sequins.

J.HUD FOR VANITY FAIR.

Hi ya,

So i stumbled on these photos of Jennifer Hudson on set of a Vanity fair shoot a few days ago. She was all dolled up and rocking this yellow chiffon gown by Maria Lucia Hohan and Giuseppe Zanotti crystal embellished wedges.

You know.. i'm a fan of 'the girl that lost weight' simply because it takes discipline to say oh i don't like the way this or that part of my body looks and actually going further to eat healthy and exercise to get the body you want. I know how many times i say i'm gonna work out and some days i try. But most of the time, i just cant be bothered. Really. And don't even get me started on the processed rubbish i'm always throwing in my handbag in the name of snacking. So yeah.

Some people say she looked better in her old size. Oh well i disagree. She was fine no doubt but i think she looks absolutely gorgeous now. She's been able to keep the weight off too. That is a plus.

What do you think?









Peace, Love and Sequins.
