Its very healthy and necessary to workout routinely,it is healthy and necessary to eat healthy too. What happens when you have this special event and you need to wear that gorgeous gown or shirt,but there is a problem of big tummy? How do u become the center of attraction? How do u get to look like that movie star on the red carpet?How do you hide those flabs and hunches? Ladies ! Gents! I have got great news for u, read this post and you will learn all the secrets .Don't be selfish share to all friends whom u know need this too. SHAPE UPS-As a child,I used to call them "njideka", "iruka",or "azuka" LMAO. Shape ups come in varieties, the most modern is the body magic. These can be worn by both men and women . Not only those these body shapers hide and smoothen those flabs ,bulges and hunches,they often make u look a size or two smaller than your real size. For the ladies if u know what I mean they could also give you the laracroft look,by lifting the busts and booties. BLACK -Black when worn rightly always makes you look slimmer than u really are. For the ladies black gowns and for the men black tees, black shirts,and black pants,try it out tonight and give me a ring. STICK TO ONE HUE-This is almost same as the black theory,tops and bottoms of the same color ,or a gown with one color ,gives a symmetrical ,uninterrupted straight line creating a slimmer illusion. POINTEES- Ladies ,high heeled pointees make your legs look longer and slimmer, and when worn with a pencil skirt or a pencil cut gown, it makes you look taller and slimer.

Here I my simple steps on how to fix false lashes,I hope u find them useful. First- you curl your natural lashes. This will help to keep the false lashes in place and blend with your natural lashes.

Secondly- apply your eye makeup as you would normally ,not forgetting to line your top lashes and apply mascara.

Thirdly -select the pair of strip false lashes that you want to wear,then measure the length of the false lashes compared to your eye, trim them to make sure they fit the shape and length of your eye.

Fourthly -Put some glue on the strip avoid putting too much or it will become a mess,make sure it is covering the outer and bottom edges so that when you put it on your lid it sticks.

Fifthly -Let the glue dry for 5 to 10 seconds ,then apply while the glue is still a bit wet. You could use your hand , a tweezer, or a clip to attach the false lashes to your eyes,apply them as close as possible to your lash line. Press the lash strip to the base of your lashes, hold for a few seconds. Also make sure there are no spaces between your lash line and the fake lashes, If you see any,you can fix the problem by filling in the gap with a black eyeliner to camouflage the gap . Lastly -Apply mascara, this step is optional but it helps blend both lashes together. Voila!!! there u have it full sexy lashes.

We had ealier talked about some men do's and don'ts. Today I want to share some more I have observed recently and hope all men get to read this. The first is ,Do not over do the spandex - please guys as much as we love seeing those cute six packs and biceps,except you are going for the olympics don't overdo the spadex or fitted clothes. Guys there are several ways of wearing fitted clothes and still look great . When wearing a fitted shirt, make sure it is exactly your size, same with the tight jeans . Pants and trousers are all in vougue for men and it looks really good when you wear your right size. Another set of guys whom I feel should'nt do the tight top or pants are the extremely skinny guys,the pot bellied guys and the fat guys, no hard feelins dearie but i feel you should wear clothes that hide your flaws and not expose them.One way to know if you are looking good guys is to critically look at your self in a full mirror to access how you look,before stepping out of the house. Secondly, Not wearing deodorant- personally this turns me off, no matter how handsome or cute you are once you smell sweaty, the attraction is gone, please guys although you should not overdo the perfumes ,u still need to wear your deodorant ,cologne and anti pespirant always and everyday. thirdly, I dont get why a man should pluck his brows at all.Over pucking the brows,even for ladies is not fashion acceptable, but for the men who over pluck their brows!I still wonder. Guys please just like I always advice the ladies always go to a professional to wax your brows for you, you can read my earlier post of brows. Fourthly, Overdoing the blings- It is said that diamonds are a ladies best friends, men why then have u decided to outshine the ladies?I honestly get your point ladies have taken over your closet, all in the name of men's wear abi? Please guys honestly from my heart, you know i would always tell you the plain truth, it just is'nt cool wen a guy is all sparkly and blingy. The fifth advice am going to give to the guys is, try to be yourself,every woman loves a man that takes charge, this includes his looks ,his personality, his dressence and even his appearance. so guys till some other time love you guys.

The lips is the first thing one gets to see on your face,and your lips if well taken care of could enhance your features. your should know and study your skin tone and what colors work for you.For instance for a color like red, you have to understand what shade matches your skin tone.When buying a lipstick,hold it up to your face and look at the mirror and see how it suits your skin .If you feel uncomfortable when your wear a particular lip color or you dont understand your skin tone and not sure which colors suit your tone ,then stay away from from odd colours,find a shade that closely resembles your natural lip colour or a shade darker.Just like we exfoliate our faces weekly,we should also exfoliate our lips at least once a week.When using a lipliner ensure it is similar to the shade of the lipstick you want to wear, avoid using black pencils,except you want to be arrested by the fashion police,gone are the days when we used to go about with funny black lips. lipliners are very good because they stop our lipsticks from bleeding and could even be used alone.Lip glosses should be in every lady's bag even if you are not wearing lipsticks, there are colored lipglosses and transparent lipglosses,always buy lipglosses that contain aloe vera and vitamin E .Make sure you are never caught without your lip gloss or lip stick on.

I still clearly remember as a little child seeing my mum's dresses with only one sleeves and i would wonder in my little mind what happened to the other sleeve. little did i know that the monostrap craze will return in my adult years and i would catch the trendy bug. ladies the monostrap trend was hot last season,is hot this season and is going to be hot next season,the monostrap is here to stay for a very long time. The monostrap is a must have in every fashionister's closet,it stands you out in any occation,be it a wedding,a red carpet even or even an evening date. Monostraps should always be worn with simple elegant assessories.The rule for the mono strap is always less is more.the monostrap comes in almost every fabric,from the ankara,silk,damsak,prints etc .Then comes the different sleeves trend, which is fast hitting the red carpets too,if you dont have it in your closet or worst still you dont know about it,then you need to upgrade your dressence, the diff.sleeve is the creation of some genius designer who i need to give a big hug,and just like the monostrap, the diff. strap is best worn with simple classy jewelry.Just like the monostrap the diff. sleeves comes in almost any fabric.

Skirts are every womans must have,it is something that can be dressed up or dressed down. skirts make you chic,beautiful,sexy,elegant but you can only feel this way if you wear them right. The pencil skirts are better worn on or above the knee,making sure its not too short,i personally believe that when a skirt is too short it not only makes you slotty but cheap and indecent.The pencil skirt could be dressed up to the office and dressed down to suit a casual event. the black pencil skirt just like the LBD ,can be worn with any color combination and comes in handy when u have run of outfits. The flowy skirts are now hot in trend but should also be worn rightly.When wearing flowy skirts,wear a simple fitted top,like a camisole,a tank top or even a sleeveless shirt,it helps balance the out fit. Flowy skirts could be long ,midlenght or short.When wearing them to office ,it is better it is worn with a jacket and very understated assessories to down play the skirt.Flowy skirts go well with bold assessories ,heels or wedge sandals or slippers.
