Rihanna 'Rude Boy' Video

Check out the new video from Rihanna for her third single, “Rude Boy,”. Love the song and the video is certainly different from her previous ones! I expect nothing less from her.

What do you think of her new video?

Alexander McQueen 1969 - 2010

World renowned British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died at the age of 40. The cause of death is still unconfirmed amidst rumours that he committed suicide. This is shocking and incredibly sad news. The world has lost a fashion icon.

May his soul rest in peace.

Style Post-its

Curvaceous Beauty

This is my first real fashion post in ages! I've never really done a full post on fashion that caters to plus sized ladies or as TV stylist Gok Wan would say, Curvaceous Beauties!!

I've noticed more shops provide bigger sizes especially since the revolt against size zero models on the runway in 2006 but i still think that there aren't many shopping options for the fashionable plus-sized gal. Some of the clothes are actually unflattering and not very feminine and its like some idiot just decided that fuller-figured women shouldn't be able to participate in fashion trends. As someone who has issues buying clothes because i'm quite tall, i feel i should put in my two cents.

I'm not an expert but i've done some research......

Famous Beauties With Curves

  • A Low cut, single breasted jacket works best if you have a big bust
  • A jacket that fastens underneath the bust is preferably because one that buttons over the bust might appear too tight and could lead to the peek-a-boo effect (we dont't want that, lol!)
  • Go for styles that are slightly longer than the hip to elongate the body. Unless it's a cropped jacket, anything that hits right on the hip tends to draw attention if you are wider at the hips.

  • A narrower lapel makes you appear slimmer up top.


  • Stick with tops that have deep V-necks, sweetheart and scoop necklines (layer tops underneath very low necklines)
  • Wrap tops are good
  • Avoid high necks like the plague!
  • General Tip! If you are higher than a C-Cup try not to wear heavily padded bras especially with Shirts. A lady at T.M lewin told me this when i kept complaining about my buttons. I now wear non-padded bras with my shirts and I even went a shirt size smaller....lifesaver!)


  • Go for straight cut or boot cut styles
  • Dark, clean washes
  • Avoid tapered skinny jeans or anything too small or tight that creates a "sausage" effect
  • *If you must wear skinny jeans, make sure you wear a long-lined top that covers the widest part of your thighs. Also, remember to go for a darker wash.

  • Avoid cropped or boyfriend styles which will tend to make you look short and wide

What About Your Friends?

You know that TLC song that forces you to ask yourself the question...

'What about your friends, Will they stand their ground, Will they let you down again?

What about your friends are they gonna be low down, Will they ever be around or will they turn their backs on you?'

People are not always reliable and you can never predict what they will do but i can say with some certainty that my friends and family have my back and vice versa.

Dear God, Thank you for my family and friends :-)

My thoughts on 'The Thriller'

No need to say it. I know! It's work stress and total lack of inspiration. lol! Hope everyone in blogsville is doing great.

I guess you would have to live on Mars if you haven't gotten your fair dose of the Michael Jackson saga (I suspect that if life existed on Mars, they would know too!). His death came as quite a shock to me. The shock lasted for two days and then the crying's weird how one is capable of grieving for a person they have never met before. I wish he could have seen all this outpouring of love while he was still alive...he probably thought nobody cared anymore. All the ridicule and accusations - if we are to believe the drug addiction stories - finally took its toll on the man. There is only so much one person can take.

I remember when I saw my first MJ video, Mesmerising is an understatement. The dance moves, his voice, the costumes, the unforgettable, powerful and inspiring lyrics...shall i go on? This man was just talented beyond this world. He didn't just sit on his money either, he was extremely charitable. He is a legend (It seems like that status carries some kind of curse with it)

Nobody knows for sure whether those allegations brought against him were true but I really pray that the press and critics just leave him and his family alone now.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson.

Update on my relocation/The Carters/Beyonce's Boho Style

Had a crazy day today. Local government workers are just so nonchalant. Why does it have to take almost 5 hours to achieve something that can be done in 45minutes. Damn!
If I didn't already mention it, I'm doing my NYSC in Lagos, Nigeria and today was community development day (once a week for a whole year) which is why I was at the local government. Apart from the stress of having to deal with the local government and nysc officials, it's been going well. My job gets more demanding everyday but I'm in banking so it's expected. Also, I'm meeting new people everyday - the nice and the not-so-nice. Feeling less like a foreigner in my own country as time goes by.
OK. Enough about me.
Jay Z and Beyonce out shopping in New York city. Don't they just look so cute and together?

Seems like B is doing her own version of boho chic. Verdict is still out on the NYC outfit for me. She looks nice but there's too much going on. I think I love all the pieces individually in that first photo especially the dress and necklace.
While out in Vienna, she rocks a skimpy tank, J. Brand jeans, YSL cage boots, a Valentino bag and a fedora hat. I like the relaxed and casual feel of the outfit - it looks like something Zoe Kravitz might wear. I hate those shoes! The heel makes it look even worse.

Maxwell Debuts New Video

Well it's about time!!! God knows I've been waiting an eternity for this. Singer Maxwell released the video for his new song “Pretty Wings” on Tuesday. The first album off the highly anticipate trilogy "Black Summer's Night will be released on July 7th after an EIGHT year hiatus.

I love the song. It's still Maxwell...a little more grown and sexy (still miss the hair sometimes :-). His voice is still aMazing - like butter melting on warm toast. I'm off to have a listening party with Maxwell's old joints.

If you change who you are and live your life preoccupied with not wanting people to hate'll eventually end up hating yourself.

Elle Magazine's No Makeup Issue

The April issue of French Elle features eight female European celebrities including Eva Herzigova, Monica Bellucci, Sophie Marceau, and Charlotte Rampling -all without makeup.


The photos are certainly different and I think is time to start re-programming our brains and realize that nobody is perfect. These ladies look relaxed, vulnerable, natural and as gorgeous as ever but most of all they look REAL.

Monica Belluci - 44

Eva Herzigova - 36

Sophie Marceau - 42
