Get out of jail free card (how to obtain)

If you are a man and you made it here, congratulations, you see? Multi tasking is possible for you if you put you mind to it. If you are a woman and you made it here, nice to see you AGAIN. Happy international womens day to you my beauties.

My question to men now, do you want a get out if jail free card for the months of March, April and May?(Possibly June ). Tired of sleeping on the couch or being in the dog house? If your answer is yes then feel free to proceed and follow instructions set below.

Forget her birthday (3 days in the dog house)

Forget your anniversary (1 week in the dog house)

Forget mothers day? (Call for a young priest and an old priest ) because she is gonna kill your ass 😂😂

 

Mothers day is a day we love to be celebrated, we just want to hear "you are not doing bad kiddo" because believe it or not we are ALL just winging it in this game of parenthood and trying our best not to fall asleep and mess it all up. Appreciation, recognition, praise and validation is something that not only makes mothers happy, but it just helps us reset and refocus and improve in the task ahead of us (more mother hooding).

 

When celebrating mothers day, don't take it lightly. It is NOT enough to buy her a present and a card to show appreciation. Go over and beyond, show her she is loved, cherished and put an effort in making the day a very special day for her, also involve the kids in everything you do so they grow up appreciating their wives too.

Ideas on going over and beyond   - Get you kids to make hand made cards and write a letter to mummy, it will melt her heart (extra step- get them to write a poem)   - Breakfast in bed will score you a few points   - You don't have to arrange a mothers day lunch out, I'm personally think it is too crowded and more expensive than usual but arrange lunch/dinner. Order in or rustle up something yourself   - present her with an appreciation gift please nothing generic like perfume unless she specifically asked for it. Dig for info, ask the shop assistant, make that little more effort and give more thought to the gift   - Let her rest up like a queen! Take charge. Take the kids out for a good few hours so she can catch up on sleep. Arrange snacks just in case she wants to Netflix and chill with her own damn self 😂   - Beauty treatments is also a plus and will not go amiss, massage, manicure and pedicure, facials are good ones to book for her   - Buy her flower from the FLORIST!!!!! none of that supermarket flowery nonsense or mail order flowers. Go to the florist and order a nice bunch   - In a few words be everything to her that day, cheerleader, breakfast maker, children sorter, lunch orderer and an example to the kids showing appreciation for mummy. This is a concise list and just a few ideas but you know best how your significant other feels love, make her feel special and let your kiddos see you do this. Send my cheque in the mail will ya? 😂 . Below is a little outline and ideas of last minute gifts that can be purchased so you can still salvage this.

Women are from Venus and men are from a planet unknown

I started out writing a post about a young lady I saw in a video on Facebook who was telling her story of being with a man for 10 years, he was never "ready" for marriage. She left him and he gets married within a year. She was obviously crushed and her whole life and self confidence crumbled right before her eyes. I was thinking how did she miss the signs? How did she become blind to his bluff? How did this happen to her for so long and she didn't have the guts to end it earlier. Then Kevin Hart happens ?. As I mentioned before, I love celebrity news and all, nothing passes me by but that's not what my blog is about so I never focus on that. Today my lovelies I have a thing or two to say so why don't you sit back and relax because this is a fast and bumpy ride ???. Celebrity MEN and their infidelities is nothing new, it's so normal that saintly men like Steph Curry are like rare cuts of 55 carat pink diamonds, hard to find and impossible to purchase. Many many celebrities A list to Z list have have had scandals. Snoops wife once said she had to phone women she knew were side chics to find out when her husband was coming home after being absent for weeks on end. Tiger Wood, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Jay-Z, Tony Parker, Arny Schwarzenegger and even Marilyn Manson cheated, yes he did, this nicca cheated on Dita Von Teese.  This person  Cheated on Dita yano? These stories touch and affect us differently. The varying impact celebrity  cheating scandals have on us mere mortals is based on who is being cheated on. When Beyonce sang about a so called Becky that Jay cheated on her with, my first reaction was "where Becky at? I want to fight that b*tch, I want to snatch her edges so bad that Bey would change the lyrics to her song to "Becky with the Mohawk ". Gurl, I was mad, I didn't want to hear that Jay-Z's stupid voice with his baby duck like laughter. Bey and I were in this together and we were going to ride the storm no matter what ?. Another one I felt angry about was Common and Serena Williams, I was so happy when she bagged herself a new man  "chop knuckle ", you did well sis, I have seen Alex Ohanian and if he does anything to hurt ma boo,  I know I can take him, I have a bottle and I am not afraid to use it (after I have drank the contents ofcourse). While the victims usually women try to heal and cope, it seems like the men are out there profiteering from their infidelities in the form of tours and hit albums carrying on with their lives. If you wanna leave then do that, there is someone in the wings to take your space like the way Eniko (former instigator and current victim ) slid into Wife position after  being side piece for years. How do we not learn as women please. This doesn't fail to happen, you will go out the same way you came in.  But women out there healing like wolverine because your man is famous or rich, good on you, you know your priorities and you know what you want in life. Those of you taking this from broke men, you will surely make heaven because you have a heart of gold, you are a direct disciple of the Lawd and your mansion awaits you in heaven ?.  Everyone for their own. I hope we have the strength and wisdom to handle such cases if it falls on our laps. About this outfit This suit is from Topshop, I intend to wear it as separates all the time so please don't  all me out for repetition of outfits.  Shoes (old) from ASOS Hat TK Maxx Bag from Zara 

Colour lover’s guide to monochrome

Ok all colour lovers everywhere, as your ultimate queen of Colourville and all things colourststic , I come to you with good news. We can wear monochrome guys, we can and I am here to tell you how.  I often see people on instagram with zero colour on their feed hash tagging #allblackerrthang #monochromemagic #greyisthenewblack #minimalistlife. I get it, i really do, that's what you like and that's fine but all I see is #WhatHasLifeDoneToYou #WhatHappenedToYourChildhood #WhoHurtYou #WhereYourSoulAt lol. I joke oh before you send  your queen after me (Janelle Monea) ?. After several days of deliberation, in every attempt not to get my soul get soaked into monochrome hell faya, I thought I have to make this fun. So this is what I did. I got all textures of black known to man (silky, patent, cotton, lasercut) and paired it up with nude pumps and clutch. I had to do something to distract myself. Patent trousers made me feel 100 bucks, I just loved the biker details on it and of course my laser cut duster just gave it a more playful fun look. Check me out below  Outfit deets Accessories @byopaleye  Trousers Zara (Sale) Shoes Ravel £40 on sale here Shirt Ralph Lauren Bag Very.co.uk £14 in the sale  I hope you go out there and Slay this week guys. Until next time buttercups.

DIY your own sock boots

I saw the designer sock boots first on the Kardashian's, I think they were Kanyes brand and they cost something ridiculous like $600. I was like e mi keh, I can't buy such things, God forbid bad thing ???.Lo and behold I started seeing DIY versions on instagram, that's when I realised that really and truly Warri cannot carry last. I did my research and here is what you need 1. A thick pair of sports socks from here 2. Non slip shoe pads- from here 3. A pair of pointy court shoes from your wardrobe  Step 1 Put the socks over the heels completely Step 2 Cut a hole where the heel is. Make sure the hole is very small, the sock is stretchy and will expand for the heel to come through  Step 3 When happy with the positioning of the sock, peel the back of the shoe pads and stick it on the sock under the shoe. Dass all  You have spent £5 and saved a tonne of money. Thank me later ?. see my look below. These socks all from forever 21 are and will surely be my next projects. Until another time buttercups. Dont forget to tag me on your projects. 

Blogging from NYC the fashion capital of the world

Ok as you all know I went on holiday to NYC this summer. Needless I say it was amazing. I had been to Newyork twice before but I just went shopping. This time I mixed it up with touristy behaviour as well and I don't regret it one bit.  Five things  I love about Newyork 1. Beergarita (Lucy's Cantina Penn station) Google beergarita now (don't fall my hand). Heavenly combination of Corona beer in a frozen margarita (Gerra-ra-here). It was delicious, it was a cheeky refreshing drink at 2pm in the afternoon after being abused by Newyork sun.  The funny thing is that my sister and my friend Annette the vampire slayer who were at lunch with me didn't even question drinking in the middle of the day (real alcoholics). Trick me once shame on you, trick me twice , shame on you times two lol. My sister took me there again and we repeated thesame shameless behaviour. Shay... shay....shay... Shame on you Omas.     2. The Halal guys (54th and 6th avenue) NYC is truly the street food capital of the world. The halal guys got a fair chunk of our Dalla Dalla bills. The food was delish and cheap. Chicken or lamb shish with falafel was $7 (shut up and take my money).  Several meals later with hot sauce, good morning my neighbours.        3. Central Park  It was a bit fascinating that a massive park was planned bang in the middle of a big city. Viewing it from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building I was like wow. I loved how you can actually travel across the city walking or cycling through the park. It was great fun renting a bike and just riding without direction or purpose. Very liberating.          4. Getting around  Going from A to B in NYC was easy, numbered street in order, higher numbers going uptown and lower figures downtown. The subway was so easy to access and navigate. I am used to the London Underground so found it easy. But please taxi it up if you don't want your hand totally "falled" in a city where you could be anything you wanted actress, singer, model, song writer, fashion blogger, anything, no one knows you, act like a celeb. Don't act like a tourist cos you will get over charged for everything.  5. Afro punk Brooklyn If you haven't seen my post on Afro punk please keep scrolling to the end of this post.  Finally how can you go to NYC and not do a fashion post. Here it goes, just for the sake of being in Newyork Newyork babay.                           Err-thang was from Nordstrom apart from the sunglasses which are Mercura NYC. See next post. Afro punk
