Hey everyone,
I’m sooo sorry that I have been so sporadic with my updates…
I have been on the move so it’s been kinda difficult to grab some free moments to update the way I want to…
Thanks for all the comments and all that….
Anyway, hope you had a great weekend!
This week is goin’ to be hot! Take my word for it!
So watch out!

I present – The Bella Naija Hot List
It’s my guide to What’s Hot!
This is the first one so look out for future editions…
Let’s go!

The hottest trend right now is the full flare high waist skirt! This voluminous skirt is a gorgeous alternative the boho skirts that were the rave last year.
No matter your size – from skinny to full-bodied – this style is very flattering as long as its worn right….
Peridot & Ruby makes beautiful yet wearable versions of this skirt while Lanre Da Silva Ajayi makes a more avant-guarde version….
Try this…u’ll be surprised by how stunning you’ll look!

No doubt about it, the hottest spot right now is Bambuddha.

Lagos has a notoriously fickle nightlife….the hotspot today is usually the has-been place tomorrow. For now, Bambuddha is the place to be…..
With the gorgeous interior, delectable food and drinks and enviable crowd – Bambuddha Restaurant and Lounge Bar is defintely THE hotspot…
You can visit them at Plot 1310 Karimu Kotun Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s new novel, Half of a Yellow Sun is already garnering rave reviews. It is a set in biafra-era Nigeria but tells a very personal tale. It is a great read for people of all ages.

You can buy it at your book chain or purchase online on
This is the HOT mag (no pun intended)
HauTe – Fashion Nigeria provides a fresh blend of international high fashion and local Nigerian designs…
Established international designers of Nigerian origin alongside high-flying home grown talent!
Grab your copy of HauTe while you can!

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu may not have won Big Brother Nigeria (BBN) but he certainly hasn’t let that stop him. Its been months since the competition ended and Ebuka’s is still shining bright in the spotlight. Along with five other BBN finalists, he was recently signed on as Glo ambassador. Ebuka defintely deserves his place on the hot list.

Bolanle Austen-Peters has set herself apart as a woman of excellence. This former United Nations (UN) employee left a career in international law and brought us Terra Kulture. Terra Kulture can best be described as an event venue per excellence – African Style! With Bolanle at the reins, Terra Kulture has grown from strength to strength while strongly promoting African/Nigerian culture to the new generation. With all the past success, she has not let down her guard, instead she continues to strategize new ideas and concepts for her business. For all that work, Bolanle Austen-Peters is THE woman.

That’s it!
I hope you guys like it!
Let me know what you think…
Have a blessed week everyone and I’ll be back tomorrow!
