    Toolz is stuck in a style rut. She shouldn’t be though. There are loads of plus size women who can inspire her. Unless she’s scared to try something new. Osas, as a mom to a daughter whose hair is struggling to grow abeg, free that girl. No need for all those scrunchies that are not packing anything. Just put a curl activator in it and let it be.

      a curl activator on a baby is better than a scrunchie?… lol.. okay.

    • Mrs chidukane

      December 31, 2017 at 3:37 pm

      Yes it’s better. By curl activator I mean this Cantu for kids curl pudding thingies or aunty Jackie stuff. I don’t mean sporting waves or chemicals. Those scrunchies will pull at her hair and pull them off right at the roots. Traction alopecia is not a respecter of age.

      Toolz needs to call Taje. I don’t how Taje does it o but the babe sha does the damn thing. Always, always so well turned out. Making me want to gain weight.

    • Seriously

      I actually see Osas in her too. There’s just something special about Osas, beautiful inside and out. Congrats to her on the event, looks like it turned out well.
      Osas, please take out those scrunches from your baby’s hair. You are putting more pressure on her scalp. Just let it be like an Afro put some pure coconut, olive or sweet almond oil. Her hair will grow.

    Now that was a lovely event, well put together and for a worthwhile cause.
    Osas, Omawunmi and some guest oozed this air of understated elegance. Yvonne Orji , I love your physique.
    Chigurl , a few tips – wear small floral or geometrical patterns/prints. vertical pin stripes, pastels on top and dark coloured pants and skirts. Keep the footwear dark too fo give an illusion of height except when both tops and bottoms are dark coloured. Ditch tje hoop earrings for drop and oval ones to elongate your neck

    I have a body similar to Osas and I’ve been dying to wear pants like that but I fear it would rip before the day runs out!

    What is wrong with millennials and how “wussified” they are. Someone gives constructive criticism and Lily livered “curves and edges” resorts to ad hominem attacks. Really?

    How much of a wuss are you that simple criticism gets you all worked up? Grow up abeg.

    Everybody loves Osas and it’s clear to see that it is because she’s beautiful inside/out.
