Gifting this time of the year

1. To the one who has kept you alive to see this day, God

Pay your tithes and offerings and do not withhold from God his own, even add more to the 10th of God’s own.

2. For your Mother who always knows best.

Sign her up for a skill acquisition class, say a painting class, learning a new language. Trust me she will thank you for this.

3. For your Father who practically bullied you to be the best you can be. You may not fancy his method, but hey, it worked.

Buy his a comfortable functional chair or just simply spend the day with his. He would value the fact that you took time out to spend with him; go golfing or watch a game with him. He would love you even more for this.

4. For your Sister who you look up to

You want to make this something memorable. An engraved piece of jewelry or frame a memorable photo of you two when you were young.

5. For your Brother who always tried their best to protect you

A nice watch or Jacket will do.

6. For your wise Aunt who also has some sort of life tip for you

Buy her a book she will cherish or just wear one of the tacky sweater, dress or top she ever bought you and pretend to love it. This will make her happy.

7. For your Uncle who is just happy being your uncle.

A nice cologne or camera pending how rich you are.

8. For your Husband who has been your pillar all year round

Reflect, observe and buy him what he really needs.

9. For your that friend that sticks closer than skin

Those shoes she has been eyeing for a while or her favorite shade of lipstick/perfume.

10. Miscellaneous Giving: This is the time to remember the less fortunate and give freely.

Plus….. sized Mannequins anyone?


Fashion is gradually growing to accept all types of body sizes. Everyday we see more plus size designers springing out from all regions and even high end designer stores are now stocking a lot of plus size options. I stumbled upon this picture online and it got me thinking if having all this push for more plus size fashion and style in the market is the right way to go. Don’t get me wrong I ain’t no model or stick chicken and I am not speaking against plus size people; but I think curvy girls [like me] should be given a reality check. It should not be seen as castigation or bullying but for our own good. Being healthy and fit is not just about being able to fit into out skinny jeans but for our health and wellness and really if we did lose those extra pounds we could wear whatever we want ; ). This is just me, what do you think?

My love for flats…..

You guys know I am all for comfort right. Imagine my joy to see flats as one of next year’s favorite trend. Yippee, well whether a trend or not, I will never neglect my flats.

and also the new kind of flat. To me it is just a wedge in a flatter form but …..

Louis Vuitton


There is a new kind of professional woman in town. She is hardworking, fierce, stylish and of course luxurious. Yes you might have guessed it, it is the luxurious working girl. She may still be finding her way up the professional ladder but her style announces her as arrived. her style is the new way to arrive at your work place. Her style is both functional and luxe; she is active but looks laid back. She is serious and playful; uptight and free. There is one word for her, it is called……..LUXE CHIC!
