Golden globes 2019… thoughts

Hey lovelies! Happy new year…

This is going to be my second post for the year so yay!!! *inserts dancing emoji*

So I woke up to the pictures of the 76th golden globes Awards 2019 all over socials today and time difference sucks.

I was looking forward to seeing a couple of people… Janelle monae, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, etc and no..beyonce didnt show lol

Lady gaga came through…giving a modern blonde Disney Cinderella /ice queen moment..

Breathe in….

Now, breathe out…

I always look out for the ladies because I know the men will always wear a black suit…lol…no shade. 🀣

One male suit was quite interesting this year… Billy Porters Magical Cape…I kinda liked it. It had pink on the inner lining…like satin pink. GORGEOUS

I love it.

For the ladies…

I also liked Constanse Wu in Vera Wang.. who would have guessed.. Nude and burnt orange…πŸ€—…its my new vibe

Taylor swift served hotttttt black peekaboo Atelier Versace dress….and this was such a hit in my book (not like I know fashion so well)

And Queen Halle… simple burgundy.. in Zuhair Muhrad. And a body for gods…

Julia Roberts is one hot mama…pulled a monostrap nude and black Stella McCartney jumpsuit..could easily pass to be one my favourite look…I’m such a onesie lover.❀

Janelle monae ❀. I love how she’s slowly moving away from the cliche/classic black and white look.

Sandra oh had a moment picking up her second golden globes… after winning best actress in 40 years *dancing my Asian dance*

And I love her simple white dress with the gold sequin bishop sleeves.

Bite me, I’m old school.🀣

Loveeee it

Serving couple goals , Bradley cooper in Gucci and Irina Shayk.🀩🀩🀩

Need I say… ladies came through!!! DRIPPING!!!

I’d say my favourite look for the night is Julia Roberts.*tongue out*

But what do I know?

What’s your favourite look from the night?

Have an amazing new week and year …

Until I revisit, with my random posts

Male vs Female buttons

Hey lovelies, 

Ever wondered why the buttons on the male shirts were places on the right and that of the ladies were placed on the left… I bet some of you didn’t even know that. 

I have always wondered why… 

During my research too it is said that the same feat applies to zippers (Ie, male on the right,  female on the left)  I’ll take note from now. πŸ˜‹

It’s true that there internet is a wealth of knowledge but… 

This one proved to me that the internet is a round about too… There were theories that just didn’t even add up to me.
After much research (and being forced to watch cat videos and YouTube links 😏) I finally chose the answer that seemed more realistic and reasonable.

Historians say,  in ancient times,  clothing held weaponry, it was easier for men to slip their hands in and pull out their guns hidden in the shirt with the dominant hand without it being caught in.

It also applies to swords,  gentlemen wore their swords on the left so it could be drawn from the right hand. And if a jacket buttoned  was on the right.. It wouldn’t be a smooth sail to get the sword. 
(I don’t believe I’m writing medieval) oh well!
As for the women,  when buttons were invented. The woman wearing the shirt wasn’t necessarily the person buttoning it… Buttoned clothes was for the wealthy.
Wealthy women back then didn’t dress themselves.
That means the maids had to button it… And it’s more convenient for  the buttons to be on the left when someone had to button it.

Understandable enough?  I took this for my answer probably cos I was tired of research. Lol
Men’s shirts have buttons on the right, women’s on the left. 


Youre welcome

Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life.
Thank you for all the people who remembered me today
by sending cards, and letters, gifts and good wishes.

Thank you for all the experience of this past year;
for times of success which will always be happy memories,
for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you,
for times of joy when the sun was shining,
for times of sadness which drove me to you.

Forgive me
for the hours I wasted,
for the chances I failed to take,
for the opportunities I missed this past year.
Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,
and through it to bring good credit to myself,
happiness and pride to my loved ones,
and joy to you. Amen.

SCARFS : Different ways to rock your scarf.

Hi lovelies,
I just love how well turbans and scarfs are used to beautify and emphasize an already beautiful look, or even change the entire picture of the outfit. Girls are not playing.*snap*

While preparing to go to church two weeks ago, I needed to complete my “ankara look” by actually tying the scarf, very unlike me, my scarf is always in my bag or left at home. I felt so good and looked like a “complete” outfit , after that “epiphany”πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•I decided I was going to add scarves to my outfits henceforth (and not so much as just on my headπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).

I particularly love how scarves are paired as turban to finish up a complete English look, that is SavageπŸ“Έ and always noteworthy in my books. In my opinion, adding a scarf is the best way to easily make an outfit chic without the whole “trying too hard to accessorize” feel.

Try your scarf :

1) As a headtie/turban: This is what comes to mind when you first hear the words “scarf”, the ultimate save a ‘bad hair day’, “we are all tempted to try it” look. But to pull this off, you should have your hands on ways to tie your turban. Here are some looks to try.

   
    
    
 

2) On the neck: Up until my research for this post, I didn’t even know there were these many ways to tie a scarf in the neck. Feed your eyes.

   
    
 
And here are some outfits with this method 

    
 
Can’t wait to try this last look.

3) As a belt : This method is quite fashionable, but it takes a certain level of fashion forward thinking to pull this off.

   
   

 

4) Layering/ Under the belt: Love this.

   
   

There are a lot more ways to include scarfs in your everyday look,

   

  

Feel free to share your scarf styles
