Fragrant Kaleidoscope Helluurrr…:) It was with so much expectations that I walked through the doors of Didi museum on this fateful day with my friend Tee. I’m quite sure if you had touched me you’d have been shocked by waves of excitement!! I was going to see Nkechi Abii’s latest work!! Fragrant Kaleidoscope had been exhibiting for a few days before I showed up so when Kachi of Black Fabulousity told me this was to be the last day, I knew I had to show up. First I should mention

Manday!!! Hellurrr…I was going to title this post ties don’t lie but then…hmm… Let’s just say ties that bind won the race. Hope we had an amazing weekend? I did. My friend and brother got married and I was at the BIL directory launch. Beautiful event. So it’s MANday and we’re reviewing ties that bind with style. As a young girl I used to drool over a man in dope ties, now it’s a man in uniforms, now I’m a grown lady who appreciates the exotic confidence that comes with

New age Cinderella:Denim and Dogs Hellur…yes you guessed right, I just saw Cinderella. Beautiful movie. They have too many film adaptations though but I kinda like this latest one. Cate Blanchett’s gowns and skirts though…*sigh*. Sandy Powell, the designer, slayed me. The design, the fit, the fabric, not to mention the hats!! No wonder she’s won an Oscar thrice. You need to see that movie if you haven’t yet, at least for the sake of adoring the costumes. There’s got to be a secret marriage between clothing, character and a

Pride and Prejudice

pride and prejudice, black and yellow

Pride and Prejudice.. Hellurrr… 🙂 you just got served some slices of juicy chocolate candy! Hehehe. So I’m currently reading this book, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Yea I know, it’s a really old book, I know. *side eye* .But there’s something really fun and slightly flirty about the way this book is written. Most folks would rather watch the film adaption but you may just like the book better, if you try reading it. Anyway, so Mrs Bennett had 5 daughters and from the book it felt like

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. But in the

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??
