It’s a few days late but I just had to post these pics from  the Actors Guild of Nigeria President Ibinabo Fiberesima’s star studded birthday party. The actress turned actors’ advocate invited friends and colleagues to the Chesney Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos and everyone honoured the invite. Rita Dominic, Chidi Mokeme, Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliot, 2Face Idibia, Ramsey Nouah, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Monalisa Chinda, Stephanie Linus, Mike Ezuruonye and many others were there to celebrate with Ibinabo.

Beauty: Styles For Hair With Shaved Sides

We all go through that phase where we have this strong urge to shave off portions of our hair. At that stage, only a brave few actually go on to the next stage where the actual shaving takes place. Cheers to us! Us because I have once been a side-baldie and gawd did I love it! It was so exciting, I had a million and one styles to try out. Alas, after a while I ran out of ideas on what to do with my hair. This post is in response to an email request sent in by Bianca Brown on how to style her shaved sides. Bianca writes:

Helloo, my name is Bianca Brown and i have shaved sides with synthetic braids as the mohawk but i was wondering are there any other styles i can do besides accessorize and be stylish by dressing my …

OOTD: Snooper’s Paradise

So I went away for Christmas. To Brighton. Not exactly the ideal place to spend Christ’s birth but my boyfriend and I had been there over the Summer and fell in love with the quirky and vintage feel of the place that we just had to go back. 

First off, we all know how obsolete this English weather is. But I am long past that stage where I’d let it dampen my mood. I tried my hardest to capture a few OOTD shots by the sea but they were so blurry because it was raining. So we just had to run back home:(  We stayed at this hotel just on Brighton’s Pier. It was windy. Yes windy but amazeballs. From a shopaholic’s perspective, Brighton is a’ haute spot’. Especially for unique vintage finds. I spent hours snooping and looking in every little boutique on The Lanes. if you …

OOTD: Violet Dreams

Hey beauties! Are you having an amazing month of December? I am! Getting chilly by the minute but i’m loving every minute of the countdown towards the new year. The Big 2013. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions at the start of  this year? How many them of them can you say ‘check’ to?  New years are not start overs for me. To me they are like new opportunities. To evolve. To grow. To shed an old layer. Morphing into a butterfly. So this end of year am bringing out my inner butterfly through a celebration of colours. Yes, I know. Another reason to wear to wear colour. But why the hell not? Today, I picked out this purple vintage blouse which I got from a thrift store in Birmingham (Cow Vintage). I paired it with a red pair of trousers which I got a few months ago …

OOTD: Square Holes

You must be sick by now of my excuses of where I’ve been, why I’ve been where I’ve been, what I’ve been up to and yada yada. Frankly, I am too. I have no excuse but damn pure laziness and cuddling-weather which makes me want to lie in all day and watch back to episode of my favourite tv shows (ie Peep Show and Modern Family). How I manage to get up every morning and make my way through the fog to work is a miracle entirely. I swear, I wish I could call in and say, I’ve broken a nail, I can’t turn up today. And that would be the honest truth! Like frankly, don’t you have days when the silliest of things just make you feel like lying in and wallowing in your self-pity with only tubs of ice-cream and reruns of project Runway to comfort you? …

Mia Taylor is my style star today. I just love her confidence and positive aura. 
I’m Mia Taylor. I’m from Charlotte, NC by way of Cincinnati, OH. I’m a 24 year old fashion blogger who received my B.S. in journalism. I love writing and I love fashion. I started blogging back in 2008 before blogging was even the “in” thing to do. I created Diary of a Fatshionista in May 2010.

What is your dressing style? What influences your style choices? (Could be ethnic influences, vintage and couture, street smart…) 
I say my style is Beauty Meets the Streets. I love being dolled up all the time, but having an edge. Hair, makeup, and nails are always the finishing touches on any outfit. My favorite fashion icons, Kardashians, Rihanna, Lala, Rachel Zoe, …

OOTD: All Black Errthang

As colourful as I might seem, I do love me some neutrals and black is defo one of my favourite colours. I mean come on, who doesn’t love black? First off, do you know that black goes well on EVERYBODY? Now, that’s what I call unbiased. 

We all know a few things about black, like the fact that it is slimming and everyone needs a little black dress in their closet.

But do you know that black is the most fashionable colour? Scratch that. Black IS fashion. Ever heard of the snowclone phrase, X (insert any colour) is the new black? The colloquialism “X is the new black” is a reference to the latest trend or fad that is considered a wardrobe basic for the duration of the trend, on the basis that black is always fashionable.

Think Chanel …

OOTD: Colour Me Yellow

Hiya fashion lovers, been putting off my blog posts for a while now. Way too many things going on. It’s been a busy few last weeks and I feel exhausted. Check my Instagram for more regular updates when I’m too lay to post:((  @msaidyl1.  But I’ve been so wanting to put up this OOTD that I just can’t wait any longer. Coloured suits have been trending like crazy lately. I love bright colours especially yellow so my look is inspired by Solange Knowles and Leigh Lezark who all effortlessly rocked the yellow suit.

*One thing you have to remember when going shopping for a coloured suit is you absolutely should not expect to find a pre-matched pair sitting in the shop and waiting for you. be more open-minded. Buy separates and match them. This option is usually cheaper as it …
