Fun Times

Hey ya'll,

whats popping?

Hope u had a good weekend...cuz i sure did. I did my most favorite thing to do in the whole world..Direct a photoshoot!! actually i lied, my most favorite thing to do will probably be to be in a damn photoshoot!

But we did have to direct a shoot for a make up section and creative feature for the magazine.To be honest,It was actually quite stressful for Tosin and i to direct the shoot even though we didnt have to do the make up and hair like we usually do..so you'd think it'd be easier since we actually had a make up artist n stylist on set buh no, it was quite tedious..

Nyhoo, we had a lotta fun doing what we LOVVEE to do so i really dont mind the overtime n weekend tasks.

It sure was a busy but fun weeekend with makeup artist Petula and hair stylist, Andrew. With a team like that, it wont matter how tough the job is cuz its all graavy

So, that was my weekend..have a gr88 week ya'll

In my mind..

one of my entirely random moments

Maybe i should be less discouraged and more hopeful

Have less me's and more we's

Take more risks and do less planning

Be less distracted and more present

There will be nothing wrong if i got my cute yellow porshe and took a shopping trip with a bunch of friends to N.Y

Nothing wrong with one of my accounts showing six figures and all i have to worry about is how to splurge

Nothing wrong with being on an extremmme make over show right now and having this pink, princess room with a life size bear

Nothing wrong with a prepaid American express card worth like...uhmm..$10,000 wont be soo bad..would it?

Absolutely nothing wrong with a chaffeur to drive me n my friends around and a chaperon n a stylist at my beck n call

Anywayz, enuf of my fantasies i thought 'd touch base with ya'll hope all is well..

this is just me at work with my three all time faves.my CD MAN- my musik is important, my MIRROR-i hve to constantly appreciate my maker n ofcourse my FOOOD!! n who could forget my BABY, 134ELITZ!! ya, my 4 all time FAVES.

so we'r still workin HARRRD..we've not run outta business..:)



Cheeeers!!

THE DAY THAT MADE HISTORY

And so it came to pass that on November 4, 2008, shortly after 11 p.m. Eastern time, the American Civil War ended, as a black man -- Barack Hussein Obama -- won enough electoral votes to become president of the United States."

Wow! wow! wow!!! What a day! First off, i feeel very privileged that this day fell on my birthday..yay.i feel that its no coincidence...11.05pm, my daddy calls me and he goes congrats, you just got an amazing birthday present..i was like yeah? is it in my account now? he's like nah i mean OBAMA's win.

I was slightly disappointed it wasnt money in my account buh hey what an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G gift..and my daddy says i have a date with destiny just like obama. What a blessing!!

Here's some interesting things some pple had to say about OUR (Obama+Ehi) win :)


"Rosa parks sat so martin luther king culd walk...martin walkd so obama culd run...obama iz running so the next generation can FLY"

"i can't wait for my chidren to come home with homework, and ask 'Mummy, who was the first African American President of the US?'."

"Who is canada's prime minister again?,when are the elections?,are they done elections ?..bla bla who care cares..OBAMA!"

Anywayz, i thought 'd exercise this opportunity to encourage us:

YES WE CAN!

whatever it is ur struggling with. School, grades, getting a good job, career paths. Just keep going..YES YOU CAN!

Who Ran this sUCKA!!!

In this edition of WHO RAN THIS SUCKA Eniola Hundeyin of DAVID and yours truly were both caught wearing the same Old Navy metallic skirt and grey t- shirt by Montreal designer Fran├žois Beauregard. firstly, I must applaud us for rocking the Old navy skirt that most people couldn't pull off with such fabulosity! But the real question is...WHO RAN THIS SUCKA??? Please vote and let your responses be EHI, ENIOLA...or if you can't make up your mind, then fine...BOTH!
































I think Eni brought out the versatility of this outfit with the blazer and beret making it easy to wear to all sorts of occasions however nothin says simplicity n elegance more than the way Ehi wears it buh nyways, i think it was generally worn very well by both ladiez or what du you think?

Have a FAB weekend ya'll

FABulous Toronto

Hey ya'll,

whats happening? Hope your week went well..mine was greaaat (thnx 4 askin) so its the last day of the infamous L'oreal fashion week here in Toronto..what better time to rave about fashion. Just a little background, i'm an enthusiast for fashion, i love good looks buh i'm not sure i fit into the strict definition of a fashionista..nyways, 'm pretty sure like most of you reading this, there's a lot of designs/looks i see on runways that i just dont get!

On the other hand, 've always wondered about who defines whats wearable and whats not..In this regards, i think fashion is definetely subjective. In my case, the way i project myself and my looks stems from my state of mind. It just so happens that i'm always boistereous and excited hence i alwayz look colorful and go-go (whtever that means) nyways enuf about me..so i guess what you wear and your total image can look like you just walked out of costume party but if you feeel absolutely comfy with it? Go ahead!

I compiled some pictures from the L'oreal fashion week..some i loveee n some i just dont get!


Is this a raincoat??

Uhmm..not my forte!

Skinny Issues

Hey People!!

'm on a ball this week eh? Let me take you through issues that come up in my life on a day to day basis. Mind you, i have a lot of friends..at least 'd like to think so and they are very intellectually sound and opinionated so we pretty much have a mini talk show evry other day!

Some of the arguments we have range from petty stuff as whether to go to L'oreal fashion week or not to less trivials like who to fall in love with (do u fall in love or do u stroll into it), how long should you know a man before you become intimate regardless of the level of intimacy (even a hand shake), to go back to your homeland and give back or to stay in the west and 'amass wealth'? send your kids to boarding school or not? inter racial date or not? nappy hair or relaxed hair? how Afrocentric are you?

First off, i realize these are some really sensitive issues but if i may ask, how Canadian are you, how American or British are you? ( and 'm not talkin to u, you dis immigrant!..i kid), how Jamaican are you? how African are you? more so how Nigerian are you? and i have never felt insulted when people mistake me for Caribbean or Ethiopian or whatever nationality. Matter of fact , i didnt know some pple felt slighted about it maybe cuz 've never felt the need to prove my 'Nigerianess' to anybody..hah! damn accent always gives it away..lol

Speaking of accent, what makes you Nigerian? is it your accent? your hang out joints? your friends? the play list on your ipod? your lifestlye? your hair do? your manners? your choice of food? your language?

It doesnt matter what colour of passport you are carrying, you and i know that when it comes down to it, ur still not oyibo. Some people have denouced their nationality and exchanged their identity for somebody else's.There's a lot that comes with being Nigerian in the Western world as it has its up's and down's...sometimes you just want to be Nigerian only at your convinience

There's a lot of nationalities you could have been but you were chosen by God to be Nigerian,there's nothing you can do about that now, too late buddy.. and 'm not saying you should not be open to other cultures that aint my tune at all but try to touch base with your roots.

Be part of the solution. be the change you want to see.

Its who you are. Live it! Love it! Embrace it!
