The Return of The Shoulder pads.

Phew!It's been a while i blogged.The reason is,i have been very busy with life.It isn't easy joggling motherhood,business and housewife duties,not complaining though,i love having something to do.

Anyhoo,today i want to blog about shoulder pads.It's been a while since they graced the Fashion world.We were first introduced to them in the eighties.Back then,nothing and no-one went unpadded.At a point,it became chessy and we begged for it to go away and it did.Now,twenty something years later,it is back with a vengeance and i most admit that i'm loving the stylish way outfits are padded today.From dresses to tops and jackets,outfits are padded to give them a very sophisticated look.
Another reason i love the shoulder pads is,it's easy to style.Anyone can Chic an outfit up at home by just adding some pads on the shoulders.Before i write a whole page on how much i like their return,here are some famous women who agree with me.

What are you waiting for?Pad up those Looks today:)

Bold and Beautiful: The bald Look.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,so they say.I believe every woman is beautiful in her own way.Our hair or skin colour does not define how beautiful we are.You have to feel beautiful to be truly beautiful because it is only us that have the power to truly say,i am beautiful and believe it.

With that said, i have been following,some really bold and beautiful women,who have deceided that the Bald look,works for them.Grace Jones and Sinead O' Connor,were one the first celebrity women to rock this look.Now,it seems more and more women are embracing it.It is a very edgy look that can either be loved or hated.In this case,it is so loved.

Here are a few pics of women,who rock the Bald Look,really well.
Charlize Theron.

Solange Knowles.
Amber Rose
Alek Wek
And this french model.Just to mention a few.

I for one,love the look but don't know if i can be as bold as this beautiful women.So what do y'all think about this new trend?

Which Dress is You?

I basically love all colours.In my early twenties,i was more of a black outfit kinda girl.I was trying to find myself and i felt black suited me perfectly.It was an easy wear and it went with everything.As i grew older,i realised that there was more Elegance in other colours and i began to explore them.

So which dress is more you?Do you love the Lrds(little red dresses),the Lwds(little white dresses),the Lgds(Little gold dresses) or the Lbds(little black dresses)?Or are you just like me,who loves them all and wears every different one to different occasions?

Here are a few pics to help you deceide:).

Who doesn't want to be mysterious and Sexy in Black?

No one can resist the Lady in Red.
She radiates Class and Sex Appeal.
White is heavenly,it's pure.
You're like a treasure in Gold.

So,which colour is You?

Saying Yes to the Dress. GAGABLE WEDDING DRESSES.

With all the weddings going on around me,i deceided to blog about the most important thing to a bride,well apart from the Bling,the wedding dress.Most brides put a lot of time in finding a perfect dress for that special day.Every dress is determined by the taste and style of each bride and we have designers who cater to the very different needs of every bride in creating That One Perfect Dress.

Today,i'm talking about those cringe-worthy moments when we come across those tacky brides.Moments when we can't help but gag at those horrible gowns.I always think that for people/designers to keep making these kinds of dresses then,it definitely means that more and more people are wearing them.

Here are five dresses,that have left me scratching my head.

This is a Chanel wedding dress.
This one,i don't get at all.
And this???
Another Chinese designer.SMH
This one is from a designer in China.

Five Low-Cal Cocktails for the summer.

It's the month of July and most people have got holiday trips planned out.I for one,would love to be on some exotic beach sipping on some cocktail,under a beach umbrella and letting out some steam but unfortuantely,at this time of my life it is only a wish.

Anyhoo,a lot of people get carried away on vacations,drinking and eating too much,basically over doing things and why shouldn't they?it's their holiday but for some odd reason people seem to think you can only add weight when you eat too much.Sorry to burst your bubbles folks but those cocktails help in adding a few calories too.

Grape Sparkler
Strained,pureed red grapes are the base for this sweet and tangy grape cocktail.
Want to be careful with your weight this holiday season? Then try some of these low-cal Cocktails.
 Cucumber Lemonade Chiller
Pick up rosemary,cucumbers and lemons to concoct this grown-up lemonade that  will keep you cool on a hot day.

Watermelon Gin Fizz
This pretty cocktail would be perfect for a luncheon.

Campari,Grape Fruit & Pomegranale Cocktail
This dusty pink drink looks festive in a  stemmed wineglass with a twist of orange zest.

Cherry Smash
Celebrate fresh cherries with this mint-infused cherry coctail.


For those who would love to try this at home,you can go to: www.eatingwell.com  for all the recipes and instructions on how to make them.

ANkara DEsigns.The New Fashion Craze?

More and more designers are incorporating the Ankara Fabric into their design collections.These days on runway shows,we see the fusion of foreign and African prints by both local and international designers.Celebs like Gwen Stephany,Beyonce and Alicia Keys have worn designs made from this African prints.

For Africans who grew up with this Prints as a traditonal attire,it is quite fascinating to see it get international recognition.Ankara is no longer seen as a cheap cloth or wrapper but a sophisticated fabric which much is created from.

Today i'll be showcasing some designs from Vlisco,one of the leading Ankara Fabric Designers.
