It's all about brooches!

Yours truly has taken to wearing brooches these days and I am amazed at how mature and grown up it makes me look!


I wear it to work on my jacket, on a jumper/cardigan or waistcoat and it automatically sophisticates my entire outfit and gives my ensemble a whole new look.

The great thing is they come in various shapes and designs, that way you can choose to match it with your outfit, or make a statement using one with a daringly bold design.

The First Lady of the United States makes a statement with a black and white monochrome flowered brooch

You can also pin it unto a clutch or purse for that glamorous look. For those of you who wear hats/berets, attach a brooch for that retro look.

Don't shy away from this beautiful piece of accessory because it may seem 'granny-ish' or old-fashioned. Be creative and proudly display your pretty pin!

The much awaited HipHop World Awards is finally here!

The long debate on who will host the show was revealed as a background voice hosing the entire event.

My favorite performance of the night was Obiwon - Obi Mu O.

Other performances inlude Keffi, D Prince and Wande Coal, ArtQuake.

A special tribute was made to DaGrin, starting of with a peom presented by Sage, after which other artists - Waje, Kel, Skales, Omawumi, Dark Poet and YQ - got on stage to perform various Dagrin songs.

A post humous award was also awarded to the late CEO, with an entourage of artists led by his parents collecting the award on his award. It was all very tear-jerking.

Here are a few pics of the fabulous celebrities on the yellow carpet and guests present at the show.
