VA VA VOOM: Ladies and Gents at the Sag Awards.

I  love awards season.The Golden Globes, The Oscars, The Grammys, The People's Choice Awards, The Sag Awards e.t.c. I love all the Glitz n Glam. The red carpet arrivals and interviews and the buzz for each ceremony. The most recent was The Sags and boy was it Hot. From Sophia Vergara to Amanda Peet,the ladies and the gents didn't dissappoint. Everyone was Fab and seemed to be trying to out-dress the other, well according to me:)

I have pics of some of the ladies,couples and gents from that evening and i hope you enjoy them as much as i did.:

THE SHOW


So, if you look at my profile, you'll see that apart from business and blogging, i am also an artist. I'm a singer and music has always been what i have done,my whole life. I started singing professionally from 1999 and i was in a band called the Geraldo Pino and his Extended family.We were the most popular band back then and our talents took us around Nigeria for shows.

In 2002,i was flown to Germany to perform for the out going President of Julius Berger company and in 2006,i deceided to go into the studio to do my own thing.Came out,with an album called 'Dance with me'.Let's just say that, that album made see what not to do in a future album:)

Fast forward to 2012, after having my baby.I found a group of talented people on the internet called Boogie Nights and i became one of them. After about two months of rehearsals and a photo shoot,we had our first gig,here in Trondheim, last weekend, the 25th of January,at a Pub called OlavsPub. I was a bit of a nervous wreck, since the show was my first real gig since 2009. At the end, it turned out to be a Great show and i so look forward to more shows with them.

Anyway, we stayed in a hotel called the Nova and i was able to take pics of my outfit,my preparation and get my boo to video us while singing.I have never really shared anything about myself on this blog,so i've decided to share some pics and a clip with you guys today:

Yes! You can wear RED!

Fashion trends are all about what's in today and what's not. Some trends last longer while others fade away before you can say the word fade. I remember a while back when red lipsticks were a no no. They were replaced with lighter vibrant colours. It was believed that Red gave the face a heavier long and could make one look older. Well, guess what?Red is so back with a bang.The Redder the lips are the more volum it adds to your lips. Volum=Sex Appeal. Red can make your face pop without even trying too hard. It is a sensual look that can pass as a day or night look. Here's the tricky part, you can still get it wrong if you're not careful about how the rest of your face looks. The center of attention should be your lips, that means less makeup on your eyes and cheeks. Here are a few tips and pics on how to get away with this look:

Select the Red Lipstick: Most people are comfortable with wearing cool red but it is important to try other shades as well.

Clean and dry your lips in preparation: Try moisturizing your lips with a lip balm first, before applying.

Add a Lip-liner: The lip liner should be in the same shade as the lipsstick you are going to apply or you can use a nude colour.

To make your lips redder:  Get a brush and apply foundation around your lips.When applying don't forget the inside of your lips,cos when you smile the colour of your real lips could be a contrast to the red.

Once you are finished applying, slightly dap with a tissue. A coat of powder  can do wonders too,they last longer. Add a lipgloss.

MEGGINGS Anyone? What are Meggings?

Ok,it seems like i always blog about fashion for women.Today i want to talk about a new trend for men. Meggings are leggings for men.They are taking the Fashion world by storm.There are all sorts of leggings for women that look good but picture your dude,brother or dad in one.For me,i think a trend like this would work well for Rockstars or Male models but i kinda find it hard to picture an ordinary guy in one.

This trend i hear,has taken over the men of New york and now it's heading for Britain.I know every man likes to feel comfortable but how comfy can a grown man be in this?Apparently,meggings was a big 'Hit' in Selfridges and they sold out in the first week. Hmmm,do the men,know something we women don't? Versace long-Johns and Givenchy's leggings are a few of the most popular ones.

I'm really on the fence with this one but i guess i'll have to interview some guys who have rocked this trend before i can make up my mind about them.What do y'all think?Here are some pics to help you decide:

All Things PEPLUM

It's time for me to blog about a trend i love so much,,The Peplum Trend.Just an extra fabric added to the waist line of a skirt,dress or  jacket and you've got the peplum look.People worry that the extra fabric on the waist line would make it look large,i say that extra fabric makes it look tiny and shapely.This trend was seen a lot on fashion runways in 2012,since then the popularity of it has made it last for more seasons.I for one,hope it doesn't go away too soon,i love any trend that can give you a Girlish,yet Fabulous look at the same time.

Here are some pics:
