LBB Celeb Style Crush

OM to the G! How stunning did Gwynnie look at Tuesday's Met Ball/Costume Institute Gala?

Her column dress courtesy of Stella McCartney, was the perfect mix of classy & sexy plus her hair and make up was pure perfection. Gorgeous. 

Definite crush status!!

TDF (To Die For)

Ok so unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past year or two, you will surely know all about the latest phenomenon in baking; The Red Velvet Cake!! Most bakeries in New York do a "TDF" Red Velvet  and they are the reason why the Hummingbird Bakery in London is so freaking popular. For those of us that don't have the pleasure of living in one of these two bustling cities, here's where to get an as yet unrivalled RV (Red Velvet) fix in our very own metropolis, Lagos City!!

LBB Celeb Style Crush

LBB are seriously crushing on the gorgeous Ms Lauren London for rocking this itty bitty nude Herve Leger number at the recent "Madea's Big Happy Family" premiere. Work that wicked post-baby body girl! We can only wish that our baby bellies were that well..... erm "flat"

LBB Loves

It's your boy Wizzy....
Ibrahim Ayodeji Balogun AKA WizKid, is the latest hip hop sensation to burst out of Nigeria's hit making vaults. Nigeria, a nation that churns out musical genius like no other in Africa, eg. M.I, Tuface, D'Banj, Banky W( The Usher Raymond to Wizkid's Bieber, - after all, Banky's his mentor and also signed to his label EME ) none are as young and as dynamic as our boy Wizkid. 

What's not to love? Every song he makes is an instant hit; from his debut 'Holla at Your Boy' to his latest, 'Wizparty'.  Not being biased, but our personal fave would hands down have to be  'Tease me (Bad guys)'. Umm, who else can brag about knowing so many "bad guys, other guys" etc and reel their names off so effortlessly??!! The dude attacks his songs with such youthful exuberance, that one cannot help but want to "holla at our boy". Get your minds out the gutter, we mean from a big sis to younger bro standpoint. Sheesh! Can't a girl just appreciate talent when she sees it?? 

His album drops June 12. Must Buy!!
