WARDROBE BASICS- ITEMS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE





How many times have you looked into your closet and thought, “I have nothing to wear.”

The perfect ten — ten classic pieces that should be in every woman’s wardrobe — is the best remedy to a dysfunctional closet. It’s truly amazing the number of outfits that can be made when these ten items rest in your wardrobe: at least thirty-two different combinations.
Along with your signature item, the majority of your shopping budget should be spent on classic, well made versions of these items that fit your personal style.

Here are the 10 things you need for a functional closet:

However, speaking to THISDAY Tuesday night on his decision to leave the cabinet, Nnaji said he opted to resign in order to save the privatisation and reform programme from those who might want to use ulterior motives to bring down the programme.

WHY TOP COMEDIENNE, HELEN PAUL DIVERSIFIED INTO MUSIC



Few weeks back, popular comedienne, presenter and On-Air-Personality, Helen Paul popularly known as Tatafo debuted her music career with a music video for her single “Gbedu”.
Her musical album titled "Welcome Party" is also out with smoking hot videos.
The album has six tracks- Vernacular, God Forbid, Gbedu, Use calculator, Boju-Boju and two instrumental tracks, plus a VCD with songs like- Vernacular, Gbedu and Jennifer.
It is refreshing to see the lovely Helen Paul's first stint at singing come out so cool; but then again, it isn't that surprising, as she chose the talented Akin Alabi (who directed the video) to work with.
According to what bebeakinboade.blogspot.com gathered, music was actually her first love.  Her original plan was to venture into venture music when she first came into the entertainment scene in 2004 but for a friend who offered her money to anchor her wedding, she would have long since become a singer. The offer opened her eyes to what her talent could actually fetch doing comedy.
Kudos to Helen Paul, Akin Alabi and the rest of the team that worked hard to make the album a success.

REAL REASONS PETER OF P-SQUARE AND LOLA OMOTAYO ARE NOT MARRIED YET


It’s no longer news that one of the singing sensational duo, P Square, Peter is expecting another baby from mother of his first son, Cameron, Lola Omotayo. A lot of public opinions, speculations and insinuations have it that, why on earth someone would not be married to a woman and still expect to have another baby. Well, we can authoritatively revealed that, there is more to this than meet the eyes.
While one group of tale mongers said that the debonair ex-public relations executive has been un accepted by the Okoye siblings, another has it that the domineering attitude of this fair skin beauty is the cause of the delay in their solemnization.

“You will find Lola Omotayo 24 hours/ 7 days a week at P Square’s Omole Estate villa anytime you visit them. They live like husband and wife,” disclosed a dependable source in the neighborhood.
However, we can reveal to you that neither of the two tales is to be believed. Impeccable sources confided that the brothers, Peter and Paul Okoye have a secret pact to get married at the same time, day and venue. According to our source, the two brothers have resolved not to allow marriage come in-between them, thus their decision to get married at the same time.
“It is a sacrifice and a compromise both of them reached pain stakingly in the interest of their career and what they have both shared since childhood,” disclosed by a very close source.
