An interesting read by YA...on the Trayvon Martin Case

Below is a write up by my best friend's big sis on the whole situation happening now. Please read and reflect on this life where we should be our brother's keeper...regardless of color. Enjoy."Let me just say for the record, I never thought George Zimmerman was a bad man. He’s the kind of neighbor anyone, I in particular, would like to have because I hope someone cares enough about my property to join the neighborhood watch because I sure as hell won't.However he was negligent in the execution of his duties, which resulted in the death of a young man. This fact is irrefutable. He was warned to stay in his car, chose to ignore those rules and inevitably got himself hurt. It’s very unfortunate that what should have been a logical discussion of the repercussions for ignoring police instructions, which resulted in the death of a human being, denigrated into practically a race war. 2-degree murder charges should never have been filed.  This was purely a manslaughter case. …

How to do classy (n sexy) black n white

Image
The black n white look is hot. I am not into trends cos frankly they don't work for everyone. I'm more of a style person cos you can look beautiful and on point if you develop your own unique style.Take Kelly Rowland, she is not necessarily considered a trendsetter mainly cos she doesn't invent ridiculous ways to wear a leotard (lol). But she is generally always on point and looks beautiful.Kelly Rowland is wearing a Wolford
Top, La Perla bra (times have changed, even the bra gets a mention :), Rachel Zoe
pants, YSL shoes and Lorraine
Schwartz Diamond Rings,

Life table talk I: Let the past go

Ok, this is a new series on this blog and it will simply attempt to cover topics we all discuss with girlfriends, boyfriends, best friends, family etc.The premiere topic is "let the past go" I decided on this topic cos sometimes to learn something new you have got to make space, to open a new page you have got to turn the old page etc.Do u ever remember things from the past, from time to time? We all do so nothing abnormal there, it becomes an issue when you dwell on it time AND time again. Often the reason you dwell is cos YOU think YOU could have done, said, being something different. Fine. Maybe that could have been the case. But think about it as a lesson in case you face the same experience again, then u can try out ur alternative action or sentence, but I guarantee you, you may likely not like that as well. We as humans are rarely satisfied so chances are we will always question our actions, you can never be 100% right, sure, certain cos YOU AIN'T GOD.I have a dear…

Straight from Africa - Ankara

Image
It appears that slowly but surely African inspired fabric is making a home out of the shores of Africa. Interestingly enough, we here in Africa are absorbing more and more of the Western culture n dressing. (This is so similar to white ppl tanning to be darker n black ppl bleaching to be lighter lol)Anyway back to the actual post.
Over the weekend, Wiz Khalifa n wife, Amber Rose had a baby shower n she looked lovely in her keyboard inspired Jeremy Scott dress.But to the point of this post, Model Tocarra showed up looking lovely as well in a blouse which on even casual inspection is Ankara or some other African inspired fabric like Woodin (Ghana).I don't know bout u but African fabric is gorge! It's vibrant n always has its own identity. You can dress it up or down and more ppl should appreciate AND wear it.

Big ups to AC Milan and Kevin Prince Boateng

Image
KPG and Muntari (both Ghanaian AC Milan players) suffered racists taunts from the opposing crowd while playing at a game today and AC Milan Manager called for the end of the game and the players walked off.
I have to give props to AC Milan and the players. No one should stand for racism, sexism or any sort of ism (lol) in 2013. Thumbs up.
The loss is for the audience who paid for the tickets so next time they will learn to be respectful to other races.
Let me say here that everyone should be respectful to other nationalities. I mean who the heck are u to judge anyone. Look in the mirror aight.
