What’s good? Hope the week is going well….
I have no comments about this week really! Its just been stressful! I feel like screaming. My boss is driving me up the wall, the rain ruined my hair and much more! lol On the bright side is that the weekend is going to be fun and half of next week is going to be spent doing nothing but pampering myself so I have all that to look forward to!

Here is a rundown.

Check out the cover of the new Genevieve Mag. I love Kate Kenshaw!! She’s looking really fab. I dont normally like that hair colour but it suits her well. Pick up your copy!It seems like its all about green this month and its not even October (For our non-Nigerian readers – October is Nigeria’s traditional green month because of Independence Day). All the mags seem to have some sort of green theme. Anyway, here is the cover of blogger extraordinaire, Linda Ikeji’s FM&B Magazine. It features model, Chinwe Ezeribe on the cover and as you can see covers some interesting topics. Luv that Linda is not afraid of controversy. As blogger Cheta says ‘No bladdy fears’! Support young female entrepreneurs! Buy your copy. Aww, its Kate again, covering Exquisite Mag. Kate is really on fire! She has paid her dues and totally deserves all the success.Check out the cover of Naeto C‘s new album, You Know My P! Its out NOW! More on that next week!

No matter what side of the debate you are on, there is no doubt that the ThisDay Africa Rising Festival is going to be fun! Ticket Prices and other details below.Jay-Z, Naomi Campbell, Usher, Youssou N’Dour, Mary J Blige and Rihanna and Nigerian stars, Faze, MI and many more….

    can’t be first twice in the same week is the apocalypse here?

    When in Genevieve going to upgrade the artwork on their covers? The content is good, but the covers are lacking IMO.

    Naeto still hasn’t dropped the album?

    Pamper yourself well o bella, we all need it.

    I’m happy to see the ticket prices makes some sense now. Bravo to Linda and her mag and I agree, the Naeto C album cover could have been much better.

    Enjoy Bella!

    I can tell you as a photographer, the chances of Kate Henshaw wearing a hair colour in the “Genevienne Mag” is 3%.

    It is a Colour flash lightning (to g with the colour of the title of the mags)

    Just thot to drop that.

    On this day: can anyone tell when/what/who sells those jeans Naomi Campbell is wearing.

    I am in dare need of a decent looking jeans!!!
