Momspiration Pt 3 – Gorgeous Actress Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama

Momspiration Pt 3 – Gorgeous Actress Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama

I think the first time i ever saw Somkele – Idhalama was a picture of her in an Andrea Iyama swim suit and i’m like “See that body”. Fast forward to when i saw her again in the series “Gidi Up” on Ndani TV and the way she interpreted her role as Yvonne the fashion designer got me hooked on the series. Because social media would always throw stuff in your face, i started to see her pop up everywhere till i hit the follow button on her Instagram profile one day and since then I’ve become a fan. From 93 Days to The Arbitration and then The Wedding Party, every role played was interpreted perfectly. She is a force to reckon with in Nollywood now and has bagged herself quite a number of recognizable awards. I most especially like the fact that she’s not in every screen play, you can tell that she carefully selects a good movie script before jumping at it. Her feisty but loving role as best friend and Maid of Honor to the bride in Ebony Life TV’s record breaking movie, The Wedding Party got my heart. You know those friends that will fight for you to the end even when it gets down to being physical?. She nailed it!!! Best part for me and why she is worthy of this momspiration post is that she’s a mummy. OMG, i almost choked when i saw a picture of her and her son and i’m like, “a baby came out of that body, howwwww???????” Somkele got married in 2014 and had a baby and her snap back...
Three Generations Of Creative Genii – The Rene Caovilla Brand

Three Generations Of Creative Genii – The Rene Caovilla Brand

I remember so clearly the first pair of Rene Caovilla shoes i ever came across online. They were from Net-A-Porter, i was, as always, feeding my eyes on their new arrivals when these mules jumped at me. It screamed everything Jay’s style. They weren’t too loud and so in your face but you couldn’t help but notice them.   It didn’t take more than a second to click on the brand name and i was let into the world of Rene Caovilla – Lots of Precious stones, Court style, Sling backs, Mules, Flats and the signature silver sparkly outsoles. Of course i was sold in my heart and nothing could stop me from looking at shoe after shoe, with the next pair was something that made me want to see the next. I have not for one time been bored with any of their designs, because every pair comes with just another WOW element. Knowing the creative genius behind the brand became priority and i didn’t stop digging till i was satisfied with the all the information i got. Three generations of the Caovilla family have run the brand from 1923 till date. It all started with the visionary fore father Edoardo Caovilla who opened a workshop to handcraft luxury shoes in Venice.  In the 50s, his son René established the brand and having being born and brought up in aristocratic Venice, in the 60s,  he started to conceive, and then designed and created the iconic pieces of the line: the “Snake” sandals, which is the trademark of the label,  and the thong sandals embellished with pearls. Rene’s Son, named after his grand father, the 3rd generation of...
Beauty, Brains and Valentinos – It’s CNN’s Isha Sesay!!!

Beauty, Brains and Valentinos – It’s CNN’s Isha Sesay!!!

Except there’s a story rocking the world, like the death of Michael Jackson, you’d most likely not catch me watching CNN. In the past few years, my husband has kind of rubbed off on me and i find myself tuning in to 401 once or twice a month…Lol! One of the few people i like and would stay tuned anytime i find them on is French born Sierra Leonan Isha Sesay, Anchor and correspondent for CNN International. From her smile to her charisma and high level of intelligence, i find myself glued when she’s on air. Memorable moments with her on TV (Yea they are memorable) for me are her interviews with Actor Djimon Hounsou, Super Model Alek wek and Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. And then in 2014, how she was really into the #Bringbackourgirls campaign when the Chibok girls were kidnapped. I remember also catching a few moments of her coverage from South Africa following the death of Nelson Mandela. Oooh and when she joined Michelle Obama in Liberia and Morocco for an upcoming CNN Films, “We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educated Girls Around the World.” The film, with Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto, focuses on girls overcoming incredible challenges to achieve an education. I just over all love how passionate she is about what she does. Isha is quite the conservative dresser and so is her life. Outside work, she’s a very private person and you can hardly find anything about her life flying around, but i dug, i dug into her wardrobe… lol! Didn’t find much to be honest but enough to share with you her shoe...
Fall 2017: The Jennifer Lopez X Giuseppe Zanotti Collaboration

Fall 2017: The Jennifer Lopez X Giuseppe Zanotti Collaboration

Hey guys, thank God it’s Friday, No? Well, a big yes from this side especially as i get to sleep in longer tomorrow. Anyway, i turned on my computer to do a post on shoe sketches, but i got a hint from shoesphere about the JLo X Zanotti collaboration and i had to quickly share. Yup, sexy actor, singer and performer Jennifer Lopez has just dropped her Fall 2017 collection with Giuseppe Zanotti. She’s been a fan and has been known to collect a lot of his designs so it’s not really a surprise that they’re at it. It’s a second collaboration as there was a Spring collection earlier in the year. Every pair of shoe started with a sketch, be it by the designer or a designing team, it goes from imagination to paper and then reality and this is no exception. This sketch below Gave life to this   There are 4 styles from the fall collection which are expected to go on retail in August. Continue below   And from the spring collection, they had these: None of the styles jump at me so much, looks to me like a repetition of what we are used to. But hey, they must be smiling to the bank as these shoes have been reported to be sold out at Luxury retail outlets Neiman Marcus and Saks5thAvenue with their price tags between $800 and $2,795 from both collections. I hope to see more va va voom in future collaborations. Which of these are your favorites? Peace, Love and More Shoes Xoxo...
Diary Of A Shoe Lover –  Season 2, Episode 6 – Ugly Revelations And A Baby???

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Season 2, Episode 6 – Ugly Revelations And A Baby???

Read Episode 5 Here “Finally, the third musketeer is getting married”, my oldest brother Femi said. Me and my two brothers had gone out to lunch. My immediate older brother Dayo had just come back from Canada. He had been away for almost 2years on a course. It was the first time in over 10years that it would be just the 3 of us together alone, no parents, no significant others, no friends. Just us, it felt really good. I didn’t realize how much time had taken its toll on our sibling relationship. Brother Femi, although many years older had to be the coolest brother in the whole world and despite the drama that had come with him over the years, I still loved him deeply. Dayo and I were closer as were also closer in age. He was and is the ultimate Big brother, he’s the one person that knows practically everything about me, and including the first day I had sex. That was the one person I trusted to keep my secrets. 2years away, even though we chatted almost every day and i had missed him silly. “Who did Aishat finally commit to o, that’s how that girl didn’t marry me” Dayo said, digging into his Ila Alasepo. “You this unserious human being, you guys would never have worked out” I said in reply. “You better look for wife elsewhere” Brother Femi put in. “But seriously, who’s the lucky guy?” Dayo asked “It’s one Timehin guy o, she met him when she went to Canada after she had Khameel.” I said in reply. “Oh Ok, when I...

It’s Tuessay ShoesDay And Rihanna Has My Heart, Forever!!!

Rihanna: Born 20 February 1988 in Barbados Jay: Born 30 April 1988 in Lagos, Nigeria About 60 days apart, she came out earlier to work my spirit animal. Rihanna is a lot in personality what I’d most likely be under different circumstances. I love her, period!!! Back to why I’m here, everyone has been buzzing about her latest collaboration with the legend Manolo Blahnik and me I’m just here sipping tea trying to digest the whole “shoetiation”. Last year, I thought they killed it together with the launch of the Denim collection that had Jennifer Lopez rocking a pair in her music video. I saw this new collection and I’m totally taken. These pieces are in a class of their own. Nude, PVC and precious stones in 3 varying styles. This is what happens when 2 artists come together, #Issacreativeexplosion. EVERY woman would want a pair of one of these, tell me why not, call them over rated and I’d show you a hater… This post should make you think again. OMG, drool with me, but I have to go now. Peace, Love and Work (Get it? Work work work work work) Xoxo...
