Not to sound shallow, but the occasional flare of sculptured gowns, perfectly winged eyeliner, overly flat ironed tresses and mastered airbrush techniques have me bouncing lightly on this vanity cloud; I’m beginning to understand the fuss around fancy Hollywood events and why 10 hours is bare minimum when it comes to slaying the night!

If you’ve known me for more than a decade then you probably also know that red is just one of those hues I can’t stomach. The intensity of the color seems to evoke this squirmish block of emotion that quite frankly I can’t spell out. Ironically mama seems convinced that it brings out my eyes…I concur!(for now)

Pardon me as I wipe this smirk off my face. I’m a little lightheaded since receiving these files honestly because I kinda still suck at this photogenic gene but mostly because I couldn’t believe how 2 hours a day atĀ the gym seems to be slowly paying off if you look past my teddy bear arms and lack of defined jawbones šŸ˜€ genuinely because I have this weakness to KFC fries and anything ice cream but we can both agree that my confidence skyrocketed up a couple of spheres to Scarlett Johansson’s beauty throne and it might take me forever to come down! If you ask me it’s a pretty dope place to channel zen vibes alongside the Red dwarf.

Ā I’m yet to embrace the whole gnarly move of wearing bold, space commanding pieces even though I’m in love with Japanese Buddhists who oh so elegantly parade their red kimono robes around theĀ Itsukushima Temple like gods worthy of hail (I’m still researching on whether crushing on these monks is considered haram) but it most certainly made me feel like I was getting cast as part of the volturi in the Twilight series! Something rave worthy so why the hell not?

Love and love,
