Okay guys, this is a Sunday and thou shalt not curse but really, i want you to caption every individual in this picture. Kelly Rowland put this up on her Facebook page with the title "Me and Beyonce and Michelle viewing Beyonce's " Grown Woman " video" . I feel the image is really funny cos Beyonce looks super excited, Kelly looks like 'B*#!h please, yeah right' and Michelle looks kinda left out, can she even see from there? Lol! Just for fun, let's read your creative captions!
The curvaceous Toolz is undoubtedly a lover of statement necklaces and yet again, she didn't disappoint on this one. She wore this beautiful bright piece at her pre-birthday surprise party. The gorgeous necklace is by Kendra Scott (she makes amazing ones BTW) and costs $195 (N31,200). You can get yours online from her site here and lucky for you, it is available in 11 other colors.

I was a huge fan of this dress on 'Annie Macaulay' when she wore it at the MTV party a while ago. The only area's i felt she could have done better was the hair and undergarment department, but regardless she looked amazing. Guess what, i found her blue dress! Its by Zara and its now available at just $40 (N6,400) here. Our naija celebs can like to shop affordable now, don't they *winks*
So this is going to be my last article on women body types. I've written extensively on the pear shaped, inverted triangle, hourglass and rectangle shaped women - which are the most common types, if by the end of this post, you can't identify with any of the body types, 'my hand no dey abeg'. I decided to write on this because here in Nigeria, it is quite a common body type with women and i felt people in this category could need a bit of help (clothing wise).

Following the recent cheating rumors of Jada pinkett smith (Will Smith's wife), she addressed the issue and made some very interesting submissions that got me thinking. In a recent interview, Jada talks about second chances when it comes to infidelity and relationships. See her statement below
Na wa o! i was so looking forward to my favorite (and 'only married') Kardashian sister's birthday but unfortunately 'time difference' played a fast one on me. Her birthday was actually 27th but i guess its better late than never. Happy birthday Khloe Odom! Let me know, why you love Khloe? For me, i think shes the most original of the sisters - i saw a particular episode of their reality show where she emphatically told her family 'she was now an Odom and no longer a Kardashian', i felt that was quite brave of her. So, why do you love Khloe?
Like seriously Miley, chilax already! Because you were named the sexiest woman alive doesn't give you the right to unleash it on us na. Lol! She was spotted on 4 different occasions last week - all without her pants on, yeah PANTLESS. I don't know what to say about her fashion anymore - sexy, trashy edgy ............ What do you think or rather, can you give her a piece of advice? More pictures below.
Rapper and father to baby North was spotted for the first time yesterday after the delivery of his baby girl with Kim Kardashian - and oh, there's grand mama Chris Jenner (looking good at 58). Does he look any different to you now that he's a father?

Yay or Nay?

Mr Pharrell Williams looked every inch his stylish self while making an appearance at the 'Despicable Me 2 Premiere' some nights back wearing this ensemble. Am not too sure about this but what do i know, Pharrell has got game and at 40, brother still got swag. I love his cameo/floral face-cap BTW. So what do you think guys, Yay or Nay?

Beautiful Jessica Alba wore this Ozzy denim by 'Elizabeth & James' in water color which costs $192 (N30,720) but fortunately you don't have to spend that much.

Awwww!!! aren't they one of our most favorite entertainment couples now, Lol! Thinking leather wasn't a Nigerian thing? Well then, think again cos sexy Tiwa proves you wrong on that one. Looking good with her significant other but even better in this lovely faux leather piece by Zara. Unfortunately, its sold out but you can get a closely similar item here on their site for just $40 (N6,400).
Following the recent hair debut Ciara made at the Wendy Williams show recently and now Eku Edewor few weeks back, i guess its safe to say the 'chopped bob' is a must try hair trend. A-list celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Jenifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Victoria Beckham and newest addition to the clan, Jenifer Lawrence are a few infamous for this sexy hairdo.
The sexy songstress made an appearance on E!'s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers recently and she looked head to toe beautiful (I saw the show and she was HILARIOUS). She wore this very sexy black lacy top paired with a satin pencil skirt. Smokey eyes, over the top knot and killer beige pumps by Louboutin - what do you think about her look? My thoughts, #SheKilledIt! Another picture when you click

The petite songstress 'Chidinma Ekile' wore this mini blue one shouldered dress to the Soundcity's Lumia Beat Party a few days ago. She paired it with red pumps and lips. What do you think about her look? Yay or Nay?
Choi! my blog readers/visitors bombarded and embarrassed me wishes and prayers yesterday o, I don't even know where to start, Lol! From the bottom of my heart, i just wanna say a huge THANK YOU for all your kind wishes and prayers.....i was overwhelmed i tell you. God bless you all loads. May God in his mercies grant us all greater successes in future - personal and professional, In Jesus name. I was super tired when i got in last night so i tweeted this pic where i wore a red polka dotted top by asos and print skirt from South Africa to have some drinks with the family. Didn't look up cos i had no makeup on and i wouldn't want to scare you now, would i. Lollllll! xoxo
The beautiful 43 year old mother, actress and singer, 'Jenifer Lopez' a few days ago got honored with a star on the Hollywood walk of fame - well deserved BTW. Now, lets talk about her outfit. She wore this beautiful skirt and top by Christian Dior, pre-fall 2013. What do you think of it, Yay or Nay??? More pictures below
Am 5"11 tall but i wear as high as 6" 'occasionally' tho (which makes me about 6.5"), trust me - i walk like a wounded camel when ever i do, Lol! so i try to keep my shoes not more than 5" and they must be platforms. However, we've see A-listers like Eva Longoria and Kim Kardashian pull off as high as 7-7.5" which i think is just crazy. So i wanna know, how far have you gone when it comes to wearing heels considering safety and comfort? BTW, those red pumps are the real deal *winks*

Am sure a lot of you loved the dress beautiful actress Yvonne Nelson wore a few days ago while carrying out some charitable obligations here in Nigeria. Well, her dress is by Zara and costs $40 (N6,400). Available now at Zara dress, hurry and get yours online here.

Quite a couple of us had a few to say about Yvonne Nelson's fashion steal from K-Stewart on my post here, Lol! Guess what peeps, while on little fashion aproko searches, BAHM! shocking discovery - Mrs Justin Timberlake was spotted recently rocking the exact same sneaks. While Jessica Biel chose to cover her perfectly tone body in this chic street ensemble Yvonne Nelson decided to bare some skin and go all matchy matchy pairing it with a form fitting mini dress. Who do you think rocked it better??? More when you click
Also known as winged liners, catty eye is a look every woman should try. Old school you might say, not until you read this post fully. As overstated as it may look, it is actually very easy to conquer. Originally worn by the arabs, the catty eye has emerged over the years to be one of make-ups most dramatic way of accentuating the eye. It is such a versatile look that can be worn to work, school, offices and even red carpets. Without a video tutorial, i'll do my best to explain how to master the art.
