NIYOLA -TOH BAD


Today I want to talk about a young Naija DIVA,  Eniola Akinbo, popularly known as Niyola. The first lady of EME records. She came into the music industry around 2005 in her mid-20's. But I personally didn't know of her until I watched her 'toh bad' music video which is what I will be talking about today. So if you can't already tell I have been stalking her since I knew of her. I am so fascinated by her strength as a young African woman. Each time I watch an interview or new video of her, she is so fearless, passionate about her craft, hardworking, yet so humble; which are the qualities I love in a person. Now onto the 'toh bad' music video before I ramble on.

Before you read what I want to talk about, you might want to watch the toh bad music video and carefully listen to the message it portrays, so you can better follow what I have to say.

Ihop sunday

This Sunday me and my friend went to to IHOP after a great sunday service partly because we were so hungry, but mainly because we hadn't been to IHOP in so long. It was so good I almost forgot how good it was. I had the Berries & Cream Belgian Waffle, while my friend had the Cinnamon Swirl Brioche French Toast ; of course with a good cup of coffee (they make the best coffee). It was so delicious. O btw stay tuned I will be featuring my friend on my blog soon, you guys would love her :) I hope you have a great week ahead.

Remember I told u guys I would be showing you some of the makeup products I literally can't live without well these are them. From left to right the better than sex mascara is a must have. This stuff literally makes your lashes look like they are falsies, and ladies we know how much we like it when people think our natural endowment was "bought". Well at least I do. The brushes are from my coastal scents brush set. The Marc Jacobs highliner I use on the inside of my eye for brightness, it works like magic. The lorac lip color I purchased from sephora and its a deep coral color. My only issue with it is that it is a bit drying. The the best of the best is the Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner. I love this one because it gives you that defined cat eye and it is very long lasting. Ndewo!
