How to maintain the beard Hellurrr…so it’s MANday and as usual we’re strictly doing men’s business. Beards!! Who’s excited??? Yea man! I hear you! *in the Jamaican accent* If you missed previous edition, you should check it out here Have you wondered where the beard craze started from? I mean it feels like all of a sudden every guy around me is growing a beard! As far back as the 16th century, men have always identified beards as a sign of wisdom, honour or a stylish accessory.

Africa and prints

africa and prints

Despite the prints and scars on Mama Africa’s skin, I love her still. Hellurr…:) 🙂  Can we just take a moment to really appreciate African prints? Not just the one I’m having on, but adire, kente, aseoke et al. A million shout outs to African designers as well. You guys are the real MVPs…hehehe. You wonder why I’m all African and proud this day right? You’ll think I have a truck load of natives, sadly I don’t. I intend to change that soon though. Don’t get me wrong I do

Blank space

Tabula Rasa Hellurr 🙂 🙂 …hope we’re all doing well!! No I’m not currently listening to Taylor Swift’s blank space but I do like the ring it has as a title, not to mention it reminds me of the term Tabula Rasa. Can we talk about that for a second? Plss?? Ok since you agreed, this term was first traced in Aristotle’s ‘De Amina’ and later the Sigmund Freud psychoanalysis. It generally refers to the mind’s original state of mental blankness. As new born babes we had a sparklingly clean slate.

Johnny Walker…Keep on Walking.. Hellurr… 🙂 🙂 Shake your tail feather and say MANday!!..I like to think all around the world, it’s manday…Monday… And with everyone crushing on some man every blessed Monday, it’s only fair that we have our own slice of candy crush. Who says we can’t have a lil festival huh? So starting today we’ll be chewing on all things men on Mondays…hence the name..cool eh?? I don’t know if there are many of us out there but when I meet a guy for the first name,

I was here

The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I lived, that I made a difference, and this world will see, I was here…Beyoncé ‘Blessed’ Knowles.. Hellurrr 🙂 🙂 ….if you haven’t listened to that amazing piece yet, you totally should! Like now! Ok maybe after you’re done reading here….hehehe You see I’m always careful what I listen to especially as I’m very aware of the strong influence music has on the psychology of man but I can’t deny the amazingly positive energy this song brings. This is no

Now you see me

Hellurrr 🙂 🙂 …for those who thought the day would end without a glimpse of me…you’re wrong…#Now you see me…hehehe 🙂 ..(btw is it just me or that movie was super dope!) I’ve always loved dark colours…blue, black et all..maybe because I felt these colours were close to my complexion so it was easy to NOT see me..(I used to be shy like that)…but I’m learning to be more flexible and wear other colours that compliment my skin tone….yaayy… However for this post, I’m wearing a little blue dress…cute ehh??

Hellurrr!!! 🙂 🙂 Hope our week is off to a great start..mine is!! this is my second post!!..But then…who’s counting?..hehehe.. So I was listening to one of my favourite songs of NickelBack, “Never gonna be alone”, (you should totally listen) and this line jumped on me…’you’ve got to live every single day, like its the only one, what if tomorrow never comes’…(or something like that..lool)’..and I knew I just had to write. You see, I’ve been pushing writing and starting a blog for a very long time, waiting for ‘tomorrow’ when

First of all….

…….Introduction! Hellurrr!! 🙂 🙂 Now if you don’t know anything about me yet, know first that I love music and all things beautiful. Hence I used the Nigerian street singer, Olamide’s hit song as title. I’m not quite sure that’s the exact title of the song though, but when you do listen, that’s the line that jumps out on you.
