John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston. Its true!!!!

When i heard the rumours about John and Jennifer's supposed date, i thought "what a load of bull! Couldn't they think of a better rumour". But alas, 'flabbergasted' is not enough to describe how I felt when i saw this pictures. Check out the rest of the photos from intouch magazine including their lunch date.

Now that im over the initial shock and jealousy of seeing her with my man :-) , i think they look good together. Hope it works out for them both this time.

Off-duty chic

Some of my favourite looks from the celebs during the week. Ok, the John Mayer one is a bit out of nowhere but I just had to include it (understated sexy even after a martial arts class, lol!)
My favourite has to be Leighton's or Zoe's outfit.

Darlings, you look just fabulicious!!

Alicia's Teenage Love Affair

My girl Alicia Keys has released the third single of her 'As i am' Album. Love the song and the video is great too (Love the throwback to Spike Lee's 'School Daze')

Oh Snap!

Here's the lovely Leona Lewis in a trend that had some debate in one of my previous posts. As i remember, you guys didn't really like this trend and im still too chicken to go near it but do you think Leona pulled it off?

Love her shoes!!!!!

Super- hero Ladies

I got really excited when i saw these snaps from USA Weekend because Liv Tyler and Maggie Gyllenhaal are two of my favourite young hollywood actresses. All three actresses appear in big summer movies based on classic comic books, with Paltrow as "Iron Man's" trusted assistant Pepper Potts, Gyllenhaal as Bruce Wayne's lawyer pal Rachel Dawes in the Batman sequel "The Dark Knight," and Tyler as "The Incredible Hulk" heroine Betty Ross
The movie I have been most anticipating is the batman sequel, 'The Dark Knight'. I was so impressed with the first movie and i think the script is very unlike most comic book movies and it deals with much darker issues. The movie also sells itself well in the casting of Christian Bale as its leading man (He's my favourite actor ever except for Paul Newman of course). I must say however i am half scare to see it now after the death of Heath Ledger, his role being so creepy and twisted. I have a feeling his portrayal of 'The Joker' may steal the show.

As for 'The Incredible hulk', the first movie and the sequel both have amazing and talented young actors but it just doesnt seem to be a winning formula. The trailers for the sequel dont seem that appealing and if they cant even make an exciting trailer, it makes me ask if the movie will be any good. As for 'Iron man', that is one comic book im not familiar with it. To read their interview go to this link or vote take a vote on which movie floats your boat.

My night with the Lion King

Hello!! Hope y'all are having a good start to the week. I'm trying to keep in good spirits (its almost impossible) as Sunday was such a great day for me because i finally got tickets to see 'The Lion King' (the award winning stage musical) in London! As some of you already know, i am a big fan of musicals, put an all singing, all dancing performance in front of me and I'm happy.

The show was amazzzzzzzzzzzzing as expected. I thought it would be impossible to create the same setting as the original Disney animation. I assumed they would just get actors to wear big furry animal costumes and prance around. Nope! The creation of this theatrical world is done through a combination of puppets, masks and amazing costumes and don't even let me get started on the set. The music was incredible (very heavy on the african influence) ...i think the cast have some kind of super human abilities, they sing in tune while doing somersaults, high kicks and super - energectic dances! You know you're about to see a really great show when a 13foot long, 11foot high, 9 foot wide elephant comes through the theatre aisle to get to the stage for the 'circle of life' sequence.

If this is showing in a city near you, you really have to go and see this.

Michelle Williams breaks the dawn!

The weekend is here and i just heard Michelle Williams new single and it is now officially my new Jam. She was my favourite member of Destiny's Child so im really happy that she's releasing a new record and she has taken a departure from the christian genre with this album. What are your thoughts on the new track?

You're a Bug-a-Boo

I have a huge headache. This particular headache doesn't have anything to do with watching too much TV (which i most definitely have this weekend) or bad sinuses. NO. This headache has been caused by a newly acquired pesticide, a nuisance, a BUG-A-BOO!!! Ugh!! I am so mad right now. This stuff always happens to me.
SCENARIO. I meet this guy randomly somewhere and he starts talking to me. Not one to be rude and seeing that he's a fellow African, i oblige in a little polite conversation but bearing in mind that it wont end the way i want it to. So conversation ends and the guy is like "lemmi get your number" I'm thinking "damn! Not again". I politely decline and after much begging and uncoolness from his part, i offer a compromise, give me your number and i MIGHT call. Great all done, crisis averted...or so i think.
You see, I live in a town near London but unfortunately not as big. You tend to always bump into the same people when there is only one main bus station, one main shopping centre, one main everything! I don't know what i did to deserve this kind of punishment but i keep seeing this dude everywhere. I consider myself a nice person which is why i kept stopping to say hello and surely this is what every civil human being does, right?
You would think that this person would get the message that I'm not really interested in anything but just a 'hello' in passing. I never called and yet he keeps bugging me whenever he sees me. "oh you don't call me, can i have your number now, when are we going to go out?"...Er mate, doesn't that tell you something.
Anyway sha, I went furniture shopping one day and guess who works there? So having never gone furniture shopping by myself, I'm totally clueless and the entire experience is something i never want to go through anytime soon. The dude is very helpful and also goes through the trouble of carrying the stuff to the cab for me but not before asking for my number again. There is simply no way i can refuse again after all this trouble so i give him my number. BTW, i couldn't give the wrong number because as i have now learnt, these kind of guys always call you immediately to see if the number is right (I guess they always get given bogus numbers)
Now, you know how that Destiny's Child song BUG-A-BOO goes. He calls the next day and its Sunday (a day not to be mean) so i pick up the phone and talk to the guy for a while and he starts saying "so when are we going to see each other then?" I'm like well i work all week and dont really get that much time at the weekends and I'm quite happy with just bumping into you and saying a quick hello. Surely this translates as i don't really wanna know you or want to be friends with you but to this guy, it means I'm going to call you every single minute of the day. The guy has been blowing up my phone constantly and no matter how many times i don't pick up, it doesn't matter.
This weekend was the final straw! I was having a very bad day yesterday so i decided to pick up his call this time and get rid of him for the last time. When he asked his trademark "when are we going to see?" , i got angry and was really rude. The conversation quickly ended and i thought "Yes finally, i got rid of him". Soon after, as always i started to feel really bad and guilty for being rude but still glad that now my phone could rest now.
Damn! Did i get a rude awakening today. In total, he has left 9 missed calls on my phone!! Please Lord!
Can someone help me! Tell me what to do.

Marc Jacobs VS Primark!

I've been admiring this vintage style Red cherry Marc by Marc Jacobs leather Satchel from afar...afar, because ofcourse it costs £315! Yes eh, its cheaper than the Marc Jacobs brand but not cheap enough for my fresh outta uni self. Product Info
"This Marc by Marc Jacobs fire engine red owl lady bag has strong vintage appeal but with a modern twist. The box shaped bag has a handle as well as an adjustable shoulder strap hosting magnetic gold hardware. Open the clasp and you'll find two large compartments, one with a handy zip feature"

So Im reading a magazine and this is what i'm seeing!!! Primark selling an imitation of this bag for £6! WTF, this is not right yo!

Primark's version at just £6

I'm all for primark and budget fashion but this is stealing big time! I always think their products look like a child made them which if you think about it, is most probably the case. They can twist this anyway they want but it is pretty much the same bag with just poor quality hand work and materials. Apparently you only need to change five details on any item to pass the copyright test (seems like they did just that, lol!). Poor Mr Jacobs, at least their version looks crap and i promise not to go anywhere near it :-)

Fashion Trend Alert Spring 2008: #3 Urban Safari

Wooh! It's been a long hard week. Im really really happy that the weekend is finally here. With the way the weather has been lately, im beginning to wonder if spring will ever really happen :-(

Proenza Schouler Spring 2008 Runway
This weekend, i'm kicking off with the 'Urban Safari' trend. Think 70s inspired tailoring with slim lines, belted jackets and pocket detailing. Think Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in 'Out of Africa'. This look is very heavy on stark white, Khaki and bark browns which could get a little boring after a while. I think prints can make a huge difference with this trend so i would probably combine florals or tribal prints to contrast the neutrals.

1.Lurex draped skirt, CHLOE, 2. Bangles, 3. V-neck dress, ALEXANDER WANG, 4. White Shirt dress, DEBENHAMS 5. Cropped Belted Jacket, WAREHOUSE 6. White jacket, CHARLOTTE RUSSE, 7. Basket weave platform sandals, FENDI, 8. Embellished bag, WAREHOUSE, 9. Shorts, WAREHOUSE 10. Thong Sandals, Aldo 11. Faux snake double gusset clutch, WAREHOUSE,

Style Hit or Miss! Let's be Judgemental.

Kerry Washington is ready for business in this Nanette Lepore Skirt and Jacket paired with Roger Vivier shoes and a bright yellow Tod's bag to give her outfit a fun pop. Gabrielle Union opts for a simple LBD by Kenneth Cole and pairs this with strappy sandals. Readers, you get to decide who wins the style trophy. Who gets your vote?

Accessories For Spring: #4 Lightweight Scarf

Right. I know its pretty much spring already, so technically i should have finished this list by now but other stuff kinda got in the way. I'll try and make this feature a lot more regular than its been. So let's get on with this.
The lightweight scarf is definitely one of my favourites for this season and its everywhere. There is one to suit anyone's taste and they are sufficient enough to keep you warm during the spring months and light enough to wear in hotter climates (i will definitely be taking it with me to Nigeria and i just got a friend one as well cos i just can't keep this trend all to myself, lol!).

I think it just gives that extra little bit of detail or added pop to an outfit especially when going casual and it's a great investment for a lady's wardrobe. Floral, ethnic or safari... I love them all!

Beige Crinkle Scarf, Topshop

My favourite because its purple! Forever 21

Tribal Print Scarf, Urban Outfitters

Lurex Scarf, ASOS

Madonna & Justin Timberlake - “4 Minutes (To Save The World)” Music Video

Madonna and Justin's “4 Minutes (To Save The World)” Music Video has finally been released. Not completely sold on the song yet (like the hook and the bits where they sing madonna) but I think its one of those that will really grow on me, like Mariah's. Like the video and the little bit of dancing included in it (I can't do any of those moves and she's twice my age!). Not totally sure if i'm quite grasping the concept though, lol!

What do you guys think? Hot or not?
