Wednesday Style Crush – Fatou N’diaye of the blackbeautybag blog


, ,

I came across her on instagram and was totally intrigued. I scrolled through all her pix and clicked the follow button immediately. I wasnt sated though, so I headed on to her blog where she talks beauty and the black skin. She recommends tested beauty and hair products that are great for the black skin and hair . Her personal style is what you would describe as effortless. Its very vintage yet contemporary,  relaxed and chic. And oh! I love her hair. I have got serious hair envy just looking at the things she does with her hair. To see more of her style, kindly head unto her blog – and if you would rather instagram, its @blackbeautybag.

PS – She is also a mum, yes die at that body. Lol! Do have a great day and Happy Independence day to my Nigerian readers. Cheers! Continue reading »

What I wore – Flowy Trench coat


, , ,


As some of you may have already guessed or not from my previous post, I am going to be a mama soon. hahahaha, can you even believe that? Its such a giddy feeling I tell you. I cant wait, I am halfway through already so that kinda explains the wieght gain for those of you who have been on my case lately. I have gained 8.8pounds already. I understand that I was overweight already before I took in so I am only allowed to gain a maximum of 15pounds through the duration of my pregnancy if I hope to get back to shape easily (you can find out if you are overweight or not via Google), now thats one hell of a hurdle but I am determined to try. I will update you all as it goes. Right now I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to help with the pangs along with my normal meals of rice, Eba, Yam and co ofcourse.

Trend Report Thursday – How to wear the Sporty Chic trend


, , , ,

Sporty chic, Luxe sport or Athletic chic whichever you prefer to call it is here to stay and getting even chicer by the day. Its like a hurricane sweeping through fashion houses and crashing down the runway in very glamourous and chic interpretations of wears reserved formerly for strictly athlectic activities and going by what have seen on the runway in the ongoing spring summer 2015 ready to wear collections as well as the streetstyles, this trend isnt waning off anytime soon.  It can be worn in variety of ways, normcore, preppy, romantic, sexy, sophisticated,the trick is in the choice of accessory. Below are some of my favourite ways to wear it!

Pair a slouchy trackshorts with a tee, notch it up with some fierce heels, gold accessories and red lips like Rihanna. Remember the whole idea is to be more chic than sport, you dont want to come across like you are on your way to the gym. You want a look that says casual but thought out. Continue reading »

Weekend Recap in pictures…


That picture of the Alaafin and his young wives posing infront of Buckhinham palace made me realize I have been dulling big time in this city. I mean, I have lived here for almost three months now and yet to visit the famous Buckhinham palace, I havent even been to Madam Tussaud, smh. My go-to place everytime I step out is the O2 arena and Westfield. I looove Westfield I no go lie.

Thankfully, the weather has been so good , I was indoor the whole of saturday so on Sunday, dragging the hubby in tow :D, we stormed Buckhinham palace . Walking through Trafalgar square, we saw these men suspended in air or so it seems. We were marvelled, how on earth was this possible? Now one truth about this city, Walking is mandatory! There is no Ajebo about it, after all the waka yesterday I found that I covered all of 7 miles on foot, no kidding, my Snote 3 always provides me this info solicited or not but I digress, lets get back to Buckhinham palace where the Monarchs are cruising because to have all that land and space to themselves in this city where people are squashed is beyond luxury. Its such a beautiful place though, brimming with people, the magnificent Queen Victoria monument plus they make the best coffee and chocolate tea ever right there in Green park, so creamy and tasty.

BBA season 8’s Pokello launches shoe line ; Pokello pink bottoms


, , , , , ,

Honestly I am not even a big brother fan, prior to today, I had no idea who Pokello was. I never got the hang of watching a group of  young men and women sit together in a room gisting, laughing, fighting or making love or whatever the case maybe, but going through twitter this morning, I saw sisi Yemmie’s update on her new shoe line, I clicked on the link and wow! the shoes are lovely. I love me some pointy pumps, I love colors and love the fact that they were created with the african woman and her wide feets in mind.

Her inspiration includes Sophia Webster for her feminine and soft pallettes, Sergio Rossi for his seductive shapes and elegant lines and Christian Louboutin for his signature red soles (pink soles in this case) and killer heels. Another interesting fact is that the shoes are named after her fellow ex big brother house mates, so you have the Dillish Gold Dust, Kessy Mint, Moramma Malt , Adablack etc.

Finally Barbie fashion is back and these shoes with its pink sole, bursting colors and sheen will make for a fun recreation when it launches in December. Continue reading »

Kemi detiba covers the September issue of Mania Magazine

MANIA Magazine September 2014 issue BellaNaija 4

Now if you remotely follow Kemi Adetiba on twitter or glance through her instagram page, you would know that her body is real, as in she puts in the work. Now there may be a bit of photoshop with the legs but those curves are for reals like the cool kids would say.

I am not crazy about this cover though, the aquatic background doesnt look real, the pose is a bit awkward and for a leg just outta the water, that is one dry leg. I do love the hair and make up however plus the class of 2014 would be an interesting read. What do you think?

Designer Maki Oh covers Genevieve magazine, September/November 2014 issue


Oh my! That head gear is gorgeous. Maki Oh’s designs have always merged contemporary fashion with African heritage. This concept I believe is aptly reflected in the styling of this cover. She is wearing Maki Oh fringed apron

Amaka Osakwe, the face behind Maki Oh despite the great reviews she gets from both local and foreign press still retains this mystique around her and the brand. It’s great Genevieve magazine is bringing this great ambassador of Nigerian fashion back to our consciousness once more.

Hopefully she is coming up with a new collection, cant wait to see the story she tells once more with her pieces.
