Pop diva and mom-to-be Beyonce Knowles proves that not even a baby bump can stand in her way when it comes to belting out those lyrics, hitting those high notes and killing those dance moves. Her new hit, ‘Dance For You’ has just been released. The vintage themed video is a bonus track on her new album 4. It is no club banger, but this tune is the perfect background music to get you in the mood…if you know what I mean.Winks. It is a slow, sexy and sultry number. But Queen B is always one to do sexy with class. Watch her new video below and say what you think.

As fun as colour-blocking is, there gets that time when you simply just feel like donning your favourite black trousers and white top for the day. Problem is, how do you wear black and white without people mistaking you for the waiter at a restaurant??? Pulling off monochrome looks can be quite tricky at times but here are a few pointers on how to turn heads in black and white.
Monochrome outfits usually convey seriousness, formal meetings and appointments. One way to carry a strong black and white look is to look well polished, mature and expensive. If you know what I mean. Ditch the casual backpacks and satchel bags for a more classy looking leather tote. Ditch the cotton tops for a sexy chiffon/silk blouse. Make-up should appear minimal but tactfully applied enough to stand out. Add a pair of heels for effect.
Miranda Kerr knows exactly what I am talking about. This look is office ready yet there is plenty glam in it.
Nice bag too. Ten over ten on this look.
Another way to add punk to any black and white outfit is to break the monochrome with accessories of different colours. A brightly coloured shoe, a print purse or a sparkly belt will break the formal tones that any black and white look may carry.
Nifesimi's heels adds colour to her monochrome outfit
Rihanna's print clutch bag adds all the colour she needs.

Leona Lewis cinches with a bright waist band.
Nicole Richie. Absolutely love how she has styled this outfit.
For a more relaxed monochrome look, Why not try rocking a mini?

 The right accessories and make-up also help make any black and white ensemble stand out.

Kourtney's glittery disco ball clutch adds zest to her look.
Any monochrome look can be instantly ‘glamified’ by adding a leather biker jacket.

Instead of going for the traditional white shirt, black jacket; why not try switching things up? Try the inverse for a monochrome look with a difference.

Personalize your black and white and white ensemble by showing off your unique style. A retro blouse, funky hat, or trousers in tribal prints will add personality to your look.

Found these amazing pics of a gorgeous Good Hair model showcasing her natural  Peruvian weave and vowed to myself, ‘That is definitely going on my blog!’  Come to think of, I have never quite considered Peruvian hair. It’s almost always about Brazilian hair, isn’t it? Anyways, when I found these, I decided to do a little research on Peruvian hair and found out that:
1. It’s easier to blend a Peruvian natural hair weave with Afro hair (especially if you want to leave some of your hair out) because its toughness is close to that of the Afro hair than the Brazilian natural hair which is sometimes visibly finer than our natural hair.
2.It takes very well to dyeing and colouring.
3. Sexy curls are best achieved when curled with a curling wand instead of a curling tong. That is probably because the hair is thick and has a lot of body.
4.You can easily blend Brazilian and Peruvian hair and get an amazing final look.
Disclaimer: In the pictures is the beautiful Kika (a Good Hair representative) and not me 😦
Also note that the original colour of Kika’s weave when she installed it was black. She only dyed it herself later on. Watch her rock  wavy styles to super curly and straight with her Peruvian hair.
wavy look

How amazing do these waves look? And the dye is absolutely to die for!

The same weave when straightened out.

super curly. how cute!

The controversial Nollywood ‘bad girl’ Tonto Dikeh has officially declared herself a multi-talented multiple threat artist by delving into music. The famous ‘Blackberry Babe’ has collaborated with Kas in their new track titled ‘Iyawo Wind’.  Listen to the track and have your say. Should Tonto stick to acting or do you think she could be the Naija’s version of Mariah Carey after all?

I know we ladies all love fashion, especially the big brand names like Louis V, Prada and Gucci. But we can always try not to make our designer cravings so obvious especially to guys who are still in the process of trying to choose which opening line to impress us with. (Even though it’s fun to name drop sometimes :)).Because they will use it against us. Which is what Ozee, a budding Nigerian singer, has done here in his new single called ‘Designer Girl.’  He explains the hell he goes through when he tries to ask a ‘Designer Girl’ out. LOL.
So this bit is dedicated to all my Designer Sisters, but mind you who bear no similarities at all with the lady described here!
Doesn’t matter really. Any beat that make me dance is a good beat. And this did! So enjoy!

Happy  designer shopping with your guys!

Summer’s out and winter’s in once more. And it’s getting to that period when it feels so cold that you start to think ‘To heck with fashion” because it’s freezing like crazy outside and you wouldn’t mind stepping out of your house wrapped in something that looks like the duvet your great grandma used to dress her bed decades ago.As long as it keeps you warm right? Well, that doesn’t have to be the case. As Seymour Hicks would say,  “A man does not buy his wife a fur coat to keep her warm, but to keep her pleasant.”
Yes, the words ‘warm’ and ‘glam’ can be used to describe one winter item. So if you are thinking on investing this winter in some warm clothing, make sure to include the Faux Fur Coat on your winter essentials list. I mean, what better way to dress warm and still look cozy and stylish without killing any animals? If you need a few reasons why you should get a faux fur coat, try these:
-Faux fur keeps you warm without making you look drab.
-You can pair them witha dress, skinny jeans, boot cut jeans, mini skirt or just whatever you want. A slamming pair of boots or heels is always welcome to add to spiciness of your look.
-Faux fur is cheaper than real fur. More importantly nobody got hurt to make your outfit so rock away!
Need any more reasons? A little visual demonstration maybe?
