    How To Style The Beret Fashion Trend The Casual -Chic Way!

    The beret trend is everywhere and it’s a major must-have accessory this season. I remember back then in high school, the beret was part of my school uniform and fast forward to 2018, the beret trend came back with a bang! Berets are now a major trend, an head accessory on every style icon. History says Paris is the birth place of berets and that’s why they have the parisienne artist kind of look and character. Berets come in different textures and colours, some are made from the thickest wool, while some are made from pure leather or faux leather , it could also be plain or beaded. However, whether…

    My Hiking Experience on Olumo Rock

    I decided to tick off Olumo Rock from my tour list and i went hiking with some friends, Micheal and  Royal biba on Olumo rock, which is one of the top tourist destinations in Nigeria because it has so much history.

After the war, people saw the rock as a deity that Egba people during war times in the 19th century, the rock was used as a…

    Book Review: We’re going to need more wine by gabrielle union

     Gabrielle Union’s memoir We’re going to need more wine has so many outstanding features like honesty, activism and humour. The book is real and raw as it gives great insights into one of Hollywood’s actresses. I have been in love with gabby   (my nickname for her) from the movies Deliver us from Eva  and bring it on, so when I saw the rave online I knew it was going to be an amazing book. The book opens up with a chapter  that introduces you to Nickie (Gabrielle Union’s nickname gotten from her maiden nameMonique), the smart little girl who grows up in a predominantly white community and school, confronted with internal  colorism,and…

    Reasons to love valentine without a bae or boo

    Happy valentine! It’s a day meant for love and everywhere you go today you would see lover’s trying to show love one way or the other , but what happens to those without “Boo” or “Bae” like me. How do we get to spend our valentine?  Most people have misconception about valentine being meant for lover’s only. Valentine had always been a special treat for me but I am going through a phase (single and searching) right now and I don’t have a date for valentine, so am going to spoil myself silly with gifts (self-love)  and also have a nice valentine weekend with friends at a beach house party…
