Who made you the Judge? Were you at the event? ok who gave you an invite? Are you a trained stylist or a seasoned Fashion designer? Ok yes! the only tool you have is your smartphone for Social media bullying right? Should everybody really have an opinion?  As much as I critique things that aint right, I do it constructively!
So the 2016 African Magic Viewers Choice Awards took place on the 5th of March 2016, at Eko hotels Victoria Island Lagos Nigeria.

I didn't get an invite, but I watched it, It streamed live on Africa Magic channel 154 DSTV. All I can say is that Africa is Evolving, but Nigeria is at the forefront. Truely Africa have come of age! The AMVCA is our Oscar, the fact that most of these celebrities wear and mention most of our African fashion designers on the red carpet is top notch for me. Most celebrities came under fire for their outfits, I really didn't see the need for people to be heavily critiqued because they chose made in Nigeria designers, or was it because it didn't fit or was it not the right outfit for such event?  I really didn't like some outfits, but I just discussed it with my friends and didn't call out anyone on social media.

All I saw at the 2016 AMVCA event was Style, Entertainment and Talent being rewarded.
Here are the few outfits I saw that wowed me:

If your picture ain't here or you didn't see most of the pictures you wanted, then probably I didn't see you or I don't like your outfit. My opinion

Happy New Month dearies, it is the month of February already! I use to think January is the slowest month in the year, but January just went by so fast. I can say this is the fastest January I have seen so far.

So I had a strategy meeting with the founder of Styled by Beeh and we chose a beautiful and serene location for this meeting; THE TEA ROOM LAGOS.


Hi lovelies, it feels good to be back. I have been away for a little too long in the east, Anambra State Nigeria precisely for my late grandma's burial. I was so busy that i couldn't blog, but am back, so watch this SPACE  for sights and sounds from the east

@ my late grandma's burial


Happy New Month! Welcome to the "ember" quarter of the year. So I am starting a Fashion DIY channel, I will always find a way to link it here on the blog, so watch out! Today, I will be showing a practical demonstration on how I transformed my bronze hoop earring, using African print "Ankara" I have had this bronze earring for 5 years now, it started wearing off, then I tot to myself why discard it? Just transform it! So I got some pieces left from the Ankara material I made a dress from, and Viola a new earring was born! THINGS YOU NEED:
Ankara fabric (Quite Small to go round your earring or pieces from your tailors shop) make sure to select the pieces with lovely, regular pattern.A hoop earringUhu gum (a garment friendly adhesive)Scissors 

Cut through the fabric vertically, long enough to go round the earring, Cut the tip of the already cutout vertical fabric into an inverted triangle shape, this is to make it tip smaller and easier to start wrapping at the beg…
