I have seen men’s fashion lately and frankly, I am scared, no not scared absolutely terrified. first we had manly jewelry, then the skinny jeans, we can even handle the men purse but are men going to start wearing frilly shorts or fur hats or skirts now. Seriously when is the line going to be drawn or are there just no more creative menswear designers out there anymore? Jeez my husband ain’t leaving my house with any of these though!
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.
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?
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!

This trend is big in Nigeria now, and a lot of Nigerian ladies are using it as Aso-Ebi [dress code] for their weddings and I actually think it is cool mixing the two up. I want to look at this trend in a bigger picture now with not just Nigerian Aso-Ebi as focus….. This look is usually a party or event look and it pars well with simplistic jewellery and […] […]
As is always the case, Oscar season has come and gone, but we can still relive the moment in pictures and catch up the latest Oscar’s style. This year Black reigned supreme on the Red Carpet. It made the atmosphere a bit lack lustre for my taste but at least black is fashionable and elegant […]
Blue especially sky blue is changing up the color patterns on the fashion scene. We have seen it at Fashion week and on major runways across the globe and even Reese Whitherspoon and Helen Hunt rocked this hue at the Oscars yesterday. So m’ certifying this color HOT!
