Gift Ideas For That Special Someone This Christmas

There are so many reasons why I love Christmas. One of them is that Christmas is a time to give. That warm feeling you get when you get a chance to show your loved ones how special they are to you. As much as we all love to give, picking out the perfect gifts for our special ones can be somewhat tricky.

The first rule to gifting is, give a gift that never goes out of style. And when I think of that, I think of diamonds.Yes, this good old classic always does the trick.

I was browsing through Anjolee’s gemstone and diamond jewellery collection recently when I stumbled upon a handful of precious goodies and thought, I’d definitely fancy those this Christmas! Anjolee is a successful high-end jewellery manufacturer of bridal jewellery, rings, diamond tennis bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and pendants. Their pieces …

101+ Ways To Style Your Dreadlocks

We all know I’m addicted to lists by now.

Blogging is about sharing. So the first thing that pops into my head the minute I stumble upon something is, I HAVE to share this with my readers!

Being on an attempt at a natural journey, it’s no wonder that I have considered dreadlocks as a hairstyle.

Assuming, you don’t have as much freedom to play with weaves, extensions, relaxed, cropped and all other different hairstyles, some people are bound to feel stuck to wearing the same style every damn time. First of all, almost everyone hates being restricted to the same style over long periods. Second of all, that is entirely false and mythical. I have seen locked sisters rock the most unexpected and innovative styles that make …

Camer Spotlight: Geli Forlefac

I like to treat my ABY readers and what better time for a well-deserved treat than on a Friday?! After a long and gruelling week of hard work, late nights and early mornings here’s something to make you smile. On Camer Spotlight this week is edgy Cameroonian model Miss Geli Forlefac. I shot a few quirky questions at the Grace-Jones-type-fierce model and here are the fun replies she had for me:

ABY: Let’s get the basic introductions in. Who’s Geli?  Well, first off, my family is straight from Cameroon. I was born in the States with the rest of my siblings and I guess that’s what they call first generation. I grew up in Maryland right outside of D.C around Silver Spring and Bethesda.
