How do you solve a problem like...Billy??

Ok so some of you may know who billy is, but if you don't then let me introduce you to Billy the Belly. Billy and I have been together for a while now. Our only problem is that sometimes he forces me to feed him. HONESTLY it is NOT my fault. I am clearly the picture of dietary health but then Billy is a greedy so and so who loves all that is meat-y. I give him carrots and houmous sometimes but then he sneaks the odd burger past me. Slick bugger.

You may think it is strange that I have named my belly but tbh, he personified himself by becoming an entity that sometimes comes betwixt me and my bikini bod. Anyhoo for the past week, I have been feeling like a right fatty and if any of you follow me on twitter you MAY have noticed one day when I spent about 5 hours trying to figure out what to wear and then ended up wearing all black.

That has pretty much been the answer to my post title for the whole week and until I put billy to rest, I will continue to wear black.

The focal point of my outfit today are my new 'hammertime trousers'



ugly face--ungh!! *that was my gangster grunt*


HAMMERTIME!! OH OH OH OH OH...

no pictures PLEASE!!



p.s. sorry about the picture quality guys, I am kinda in a hurry so i forced my housemate to do quick phone shots...

The protest: Mc'Super Steamy??

Ok guys is it me or is everyone watching total balls on TV/the internet as we all await for our fave shows to end this silly mid season hiatus??

WHERE is my doctor yang?? my damon salvatore?? my chuck bass?? 

I have to admit that I MAY have a slight addiction to american tv but I don't care. I want them back and I want them now.

In what may be seen as a particularly low moment and at the height of my desperation, I donned a pair of scrubs and decided to do my own personal adaptation of greys anatomy. Just call me Mc'Super Steamy...
so the patient has an endocro-blah blah you say?? ....

hang on a sec let me just read up on it quickly

I've solved the mystery you say?? I'm a medical marvel?? OK- *insert smug genius pose*



I sincerely hope the shows return before I put on a pair of Vampire fangs or start referring to myself as Elena Gilbert....

Follow the fashion brick lane...

Hey guys!!

Sorry I keep disappearing! 

Anyhoo, after church today, I popped into Brick Lane and was reminded of why I love London so much. I have just never been anywhere else in the world where ANYTHING is acceptable. People wear and do whatever they bloody want in brick lane and they just seem so happy and free. 

I think it is freaking awesome and i LOVE IT.

So here are some of the pics from my sunday afternoon. enjoy.

yummy street food!!


 and super fly people




 my personal fave...


aaaand i even found myself a nice wee bargain mesh and velvet  dress..



 Alas not EVERYTHING in bricklane is good...
but hey...one man's poison is another man's meat. to each his own!!


BYEEEE

p.s when I wore this hat with this dress, i really reminded myself of hilary banks a la fresh prince of bel air.

p.p.s IF you happen to spot your face in any of these pictures and want me to remove it then just email me...but to be honest you probably look fly so please don't...

I'd like to thank my mum, my dad and probably most of all UKHairWeaves...

I know, I know, you're all terribly shocked to hear my hair isn't real. Honestly, me too, sometimes I let the fantasy get away with me and I start thinking that I have been bestowed with Pochantas type locks but alas, that is SO not the case. HOWEVER, I did get bestowed with the next best thing which is Virgin Indian Remy Hair courtesy of UKHairWeaves.

They are a relatively new company but that aside, the hair they provided is of excellent quality. I am not one to promote things just for the sake of it so believe me when I say that this hair is absolutely awesome, and the reason I was able to go from this...

don't worry, I took the rollers out before leaving my house...








to this...
Admittedly, straightening this hair was one heck of a work out [for my lovely housemate who helped me out] and it curls back up at the sight of moisture BUT it's like 10 hair stlyes for the price of one so it is entirely worth it!!

....it is really hard to convince people that I am not vain when I take this many pictures of my face soooo I won't try...besides I am starting to think that I am a weee bit vain...don't tell my parents...

Speaking of parentals...I spoke to my pops who lives in my home country Nigeria and he informed me that he found and now reads my blog...sooo HEY DADDY!! I am studying, I promise...the blogging helps me to relieve stress..and erm focus..on the law... Also, don't let the clothes fool you, I still need your money...

Who says I'm not self sufficient eh??

One last time...thank you to UKHairWeaves. If you want hair that looks this fly [and mother nature refuses to give it to you] then check them out on facebook. I promise you'll love it.

Introducing Aslan...

Ok so today, I had to do the dreary task of returning to law school to collect my new study material. I happen to have a very tumultous love/hate relationship with law, so for me this signified doom, gloom and all in all the end of any semblence of a social life that I may have had these past few days. Long story short, I decided to pop into me fave store on the way in AND bloody lucky I did- let me explain...

So for THE longest, I have been looking for the perfect fur coat but obviously, I didn't want to pay the accompanying price. So a couple of days ago, I saw one for £40 at a vintage stall and I was super tempted to buy it because lets face it, that price is kinda awesome but I didn't have cash on me and I was on a rush...ANYHOO..the point remains that I found the PERFECT one for a smile inducing price. I have dubbed it Aslan because it literally looks like it was transferred from Aslan's back directly to my beautiful new coat. Now, as gross as that sounds, the result is my fave purchase of 2011 thus far. 

Soooo introducing....ASLAN....


Whilst at school, I bumped into my super fly, fabby friend and whipped out me iPhone to capture his snazzy little outfit...

at first he tried to resist my advances but I took a hint from lady gaga [even though I truly think she is insane in the membrane] and followed him until he loved me...kinda..ish..
see?? Result...
Papa, paparazzi...

on another entirely different note, check out me new ring...you like?? I do!!

Guess who's back??? [with new hair again...don't judge me]

Hi Guys!!

My exams are oooooover!! and because you were obviously wondering, I think they went ok [minus the very last one which erm just went...] anyhoo, the important thing is that now I am as free as a free thing. 

DID YOU MISS ME??
I realised whilst I was gone that I actually missed you guys!! Blogging totally makes me happy. Anyhoo soppy expressions of love aside..with my first day of freedom, i did....drumroll please...MY HAIR!!

To be honest, at first I thought I looked like a wild banshee but it turns out that I am somewhat of a drama queen because now that I have embraced my inner Diana Ross, I am loooooving my diva feeling!!

What do you think??? YAY OR NAY??




 And just so you don't all start to think that I am crazy vain girl...I also got me some new earrings that made me happy!!

ALSO...I seem to have attracted a whoooole lotta new followers in my absence!! corr blimey, I go for a week and you all come a searching!! I have only one thing to say to you!!....
you make the blogging interesting...

Sooo, I was thinking....I just may do a giveaway type thing soon enough??

There seemed to be a lot of interest in the nail polish from my black gold post?? which btw is OPI. I happen to have some new bottles of the same colour so if y'all are interested then let me know and I'll see if I can spread some of that OPI joy your way. If you have forgotten what it looks like, then let me remind you..

If you want it then BEG FOR IT....ok I'm kidding...the freedom is messing with my mind/sanity.
If you want it then express your interest then I will figure out some sort of giveaway 'thing' and holla.

LOVE, PEACE & GRADES THAT MAKE MY HIATUS WORTHWHILE!!
