BEST DRESSED AT TIFFANY AMBER'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY BY NAIJAGAL

Image
Hi readers! Sorry for the late update, Naijagal has been under the weather:( but here goes:) Our take on the outfits worn at the show! Loved the pink dress above but I must say I am not exactly digging the blue shoes with the outfit. Nice effort though. There is just something exquisite about the flowing outfit shown above by the ladies. A PLUS Finally for an evening show, I would probably have gone with some form of jewelry with the brown outfit and gold shoes to match or what do you say readers? It is almost christmas! Lagos should be on and popping, do you know of any parties, you want to share with naijagal? Well I have one to share with you! BACCHUS THURSDAY DEC 20TH ED HARDY PARTY - DRESS TO IMPRESS I will be there so stop by and say hello!

One weekend, a job came from a most unexpected quarter and in an unlikely manner. Obalolu’s close friend was getting married and the lot fell on Obalolu to bake the wedding cake. The unemployed graduate had learnt to bake cake some years ago while in school, but never thought it could be financially rewarding. For the wedding cake, her friend insisted on paying N30,000, although Obalolu had offered to do it for free. As it turned out, the cake was an exquisite creation and before Obalolu knew it, it had opened a flood of requests. Within months, Obalolu had forgotten about seeking paid employment. She has grown to be an employer of labour with four staff directly in her employment and many others on call whenever a job comes up which, she enthused, is a regular affair. From only cak

SO SAD, KANYE'S MOM PASSES AWAY!

According to Fox news " Donda West, mother of Kanye West and former chairwoman of Chicago State University's English department, has died, a spokesman for the rapper said. She was 58. Donda West died Saturday night in Los Angeles, said the spokesman, who asked for anonymity because not all family members had been notified. "The family respectfully asks for privacy during this time of grief," the spokesman said. A cause of death has not been released." Rumors are being spread about the cause of her death however this is not the time for that. We pray Kanye has the strength to go through this, it is never easy to loose someone you love so dearly.
