PRC tomorrow... Can't wait!

Tomorrow, the semi-final (I think) for Project Runway Canada will be airing and I can't wait. Honestly, I haven't been blown away by anyone on the show except for Sunny Fong who keeps delivering EVERYfriggin'TIME like he got no other option! He's exceptional! 

Jessica Biffi, whom I love her bubbly personality so much, is arguably the second best (it's between her and Jason Myers, who got eliminated and came back). Jason and Genevieve came back on the show and kicked my fellow Nigerian, Adejoke out! I almost cried for her because it was one of her best works but she got the scissors because of Kim 
(whose personality was depicted as very bitchy on the show). I was happy Kim left, but still felt sorry for her. Girl needed a hug!

Anyway, Rachel Roy was the guest judge last week. There was just something about her that used to scare me... I dunno... Maybe it was this collection, lol (which I actually loved but it reminded me of colonial times for some reason). But jokes aside, after this episode, she came across softer...still militant, still opinionated but softer... Now I just think she is a strong woman who knows what she wants...and I'm loving her! (I'm sure by now, you all can tell that I love strong women).

I tried embedding the video but it doesn't work so try THIS . RR had some insightful things to say.

Well, I can't believe I gave 2 posts in one day. Man, why can't life be this easy?! *sigh*

UPDATE: PRC Finale is next week instead.
muchos besos,

The Simmonseseses...

There’s something subtly exciting about Angela’s look here. Possibly the best put-together look I’ve seen on her in ages and I’ll tell you why.

Here she’s almost going ‘sweet and simple’, which can be synonymous with ‘safe and boring’, but takes it up a notch by opting for the geometric sandals and structured top handle to tone down all that frilly-girliness going on in that dress. Also noteworthy, is the red hue boldly featured from the shoes and bag without being unnecessarily dramatic. I hope she didn’t think too hard on this one before coming out, because it’s looking right Angela!

Okay, she's no longer a Simmons but it's about Kimora’s top... I assume it's one of those tee captions that'd make any pregnant woman feel phat instead of fat??? Whatever the case, the whole idea is literally cute! =)

SEXY BODY PARTS: Foreheadsss

Some beautiful females with prominent foreheads:

Clockwise: Rihanna; actress, Mena Suvari (American Pie); Iman; model, Lily Cole; actress, Christina Ricci; Tyra Banks; and Sade Adu

Clockwise: My part-time sis, Nkechi I-B; Me (hehe); Big sister, Mautin; the beautiful Cynthia O.

I used to be sooo conscious of mine as a child, and high school kids didn't make it any easier for me! Lol. I would ALWAYS cover it up until my school banned bangs. I promise, I thought I was going to die that day! I was not going to go back to school until my mother called on her friend and they gave my big sis and I a pep-talk for a couple hours (which didn't change much then, lol). But now, I'd do anything to pull my hair back! 

After seeing such gorgeousness that big foreheads are responsible for, I can't believe some people still consider it a flaw. Puhleaseeee! As Cynthia above once commented, "Big, regal foreheads are the norm..." And in my self-serving bias mode, I approve! =)

She's bad and you know it!

After the mini hiatus and much media frenzy about Rihanna, she finally came out. And she did so well. Ri-Ri looks bad azz and makes a statement, especially the hair. I'm sure she knows people are gonna hate it and that's very bold of her. She don't curr whanonayall say! lol. Talk about coming out strong. Love it! ;-)

Yesterday I was observing the bubbly downtown Toronto from the grimy-streetcar-point-of-view.
And I drew that;
In Toronto you come across people,
On Queen Street you come across individuals...

That being said, can you guess what district Queen Street is?

Party Up! =)

When it comes to the party scene, I have to say dressing up is my favorite part! In Nigeria, where I'm from (especially in the Yoruba culture), partying is a lifestyle! We party almost to a fault! lol And for us, these are the elements that make a party a party :
1. Great food! Not only must there be food, it must be in abundance as well. Are you ki'ing me?! lol  I think it's unfortunate that we don't have food in parties anymore, just drinks. lol
2. Scintillating music (the type that would provoke a paralyzed person to get up and dance!)
3. The clothes... You know that the issue of matching clothes with the shoes and bags (whether right or wrong, lol) is a very touchy one to Nigerian women! 

Whatever the case, I can relate. Looking good is a MUST, whether it be jeans and tees. The last party my posse and I went for was NEPA. A much anticipated party organized by the Carleton University Nigerian Students Association (CUNSA), which is arguably the most active Nigerian association in Canada. It was sooo much fun! Red carpet, DAV!D, flashing lights, DAV!D, fab music, DAV!D, meeting amazing new people, DAV!D, DAV!D, DAV!D and so on!

I put together some flicks from the party that caught my eye... There were thousands of them to scheme through and heaven knows, I got tired! As per the fashion part, people looked good but I didn't see anything mind-blowing (except for the DAV!D look of course, lol)... Anyway, if you're wearing it well, you're wearing it well, iniit? Enjoy!    

L-R: The lights on the dance floor; Glowing ice; African jewelry and mini champagne bottles included in the VIP packs; The backdrop (DAV!D is somewhere on there... Sweet eh?!) These were put together by the ladies of INEN Organized!

Ladies L-R: The INEN girls, Christal and Sterre (whose hair was so FIERCE!); The ankara triplets, Ifeoma, Ijeoma and Adeola; Adaeze-Flossy (she gets credit for altering the style of that dress to perfection)

The Men Clockwise: Mr. Gidilounge in his crisp vest; Donald M is working that red carpet! lol; Olumide B. did pink and red justice; Donald Ofik- Dude is a trendsetter, watch his space!; Jimi Bolu having too much fun in his dapper bowtie, definitely another trendsetter to look out for; Ikenna O. kept it simple and sweet in the cargo colors and boat shoes; Deji K. brought the heat in a leather blazer... 

Random:  Kwame and I (bottom left) reuniting after 4 years?; Kenny (top left) is gonna kill me but I love the way he's dancing in that pic. lol Overall, NEPA was loads of fun. Got me dancing in my full length dress and

On a closing note, my woman of the night: Miss Ify Olu... Donning a metallic custom DAV!D dress. She did look like molten lava... Tsssttt! I love the way she worked the entire look with the head wrap, thong flats and the DAV!D swagg to go. Work itttt!!! =)
