A Love Letter to My Reebok Skyscapes & a Giveaway

Reebok Skyscape 3

Dear Reebok Skyscape, In how many ways can I love thee? When the beautiful people at BlogHer asked if I wanted to get to know you and write about you, I obliged - mostly because I was excited at the prospect of wearing new shoes and taking pictures in them. I didn't know much about you, other than you being pretty. Then you came in the mail, and then I put you on --- and all of a sudden the pendulum swung. I was no longer wondering how to these shoes, I was wondering why I hadn't gotten to Continue Reading

Does Being A Gay Man Make You A Fashionista?

Derek J

There's a trend going on. I don't know when, why, or how it started, but it's out there and it might be here to stay. There are gay men, and there are gay men who think they are fashionistas. And well, both of these things can in fact be mutually exclusive - contrary to what popular media may think.  It's like anything that's fashion related cannot be complete without gay men. Really, really gay men. You know who has inspired me to write this post? It's Derek J. Derek J, the celebrity Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian In A See-Through Dress. Do We Like?

Kim-Kardashian-See-Through-Dress

Recently, I have found myself being very attracted to see-through clothes. I can't wear them to work (without a camisole under), but when I'm not going to work, I wear the heck out of it. Not too much, but I do love it. Anyway, I saw pictures of Kim Kardashian in this see-through dress, and I just love it! I may not have the guts to wear see-through top to bottom, but maybe just the top. I don't know who made the dress, but it's beautiful, and Kim Kardashian wears it well. Maybe it's the Continue Reading

It’s Vera vs Her Natural Hair: The Sexy, Curly Braids Edition

Lost hair. All lost.

Late last year, I wore my wig for a few months, and I did it because I wanted my natural hair to rest. I have told you several times how I have no idea what to do with my natural hair. I watch several videos on YouTube, and I try some of them, but it never ends up like it is in the video. Those people in the videos use some kind of juju, I tell you. But I digress. So I braided my hair in January, a couple days before my birthday, and it was beautiful. This particular kind of braids is my Continue Reading

Ladies, Get Some Baby Lips With Maybelline Baby Lips!

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm

I don't know if I have ever told you how obsessed I am with glossing my lips. I have a big jar of Vaseline petroleum jelly that is literally part of the decor of the living room. When I'm sitting on my chair and doing whatever it is - like right now that I'm blogging - I'm constantly dipping my finger in my Vaseline and moisturizing my lips. The jar is now almost empty. Anyway, as you can imagine, my purse also has many lip glosses and lip balms. I'm always buying something new, and I use Continue Reading

My Favorite Looks From The 86th Annual Academy Awards

oscars

I gazed at all the beautiful people on the Oscars red carpet with sheer admiration, and I wondered what they were thinking about in that very moment. Whatever it was, these few people had me dreaming about their gowns. In no particular order, these are my favorite gowns. 1.  Cate Blanchett in Georgio Armani: I love this dress. It looks like something I would absolutely wear. I love how soft it looks. And I love the nude top. Plus, the Swarovski crystal details. Beautiful! 2.  Lupita Continue Reading

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Talks Fashion In Elle March 2014 Issue

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on Elle March 2014 Issue

There I was, reading through my Elle Magazine March 2014 issue, and there she was: Chimamanda --- my favorite best friend who doesn't know it yet. The title of the article is, "Why Can't A Smart Woman Love Fashion?" And yes, why not? I know that people typically think of fashion magazines as picture books, but I quite enjoy reading the articles. I don't read everything, but when I do, I enjoy it. And I especially enjoyed this one. Read it Continue Reading

So Suave®! It’s My Silky, Commercial-Worthy Skin

Suave

Let me tell you, there is nothing you can say to convince me that I am not in a lotion commercial. Most of the time when I get ready late, it's because I am taking my time with my lotion. I remember when I was in elementary school in Nigeria and my teacher had made a joke about how women were always smiling and taking their time while rubbing lotion in commercials, and although I was only a child then, I found his words funny, and years later, I find myself doing the same thing. I love Continue Reading
