7 dAys oF sAd... aNd bLaCk

One of my music Icons Michael Jackson died a few days ago... and I was completely devastated by the news.
I used to love that man so much... I grew up being terrified of the thriller video but stayed glued to the tv everytime it came on... I grew up doing the splits... singing 'we are the world' at the top of my lungs and doing the michael 'hee hee' at the end of every song...

I still planned to marry Michael Jackson
... if he refused to(which I doubt... if only he'd met me)... He was just going to have to give me away at my wedding... or perform in it at least...

But now that dream is over
I feel like I have lost a good portion of my childhood...
...and I'm sad.

So now I have decided to mourn my love... I will wear black for the next 7 days... by wearing black clothes, eyeliner and a veil of tears.

Day 1:

One of my closest friends invited me to her church on Sunday... which went really well by the way... but I noticed that African churches usually spend a lot of time in the service.. up to 4 hours at a stretch... I actually had to step outside for a chocolate break at some point(dont tell anybody ... lol)

I have never worn all black before(I don't think)... so I brought in a little metallic to give me a bit of shine...

oh and I wore makeup!!! lol

We had the best day ever... we all went out to an asian restaurant for lunch... so much fun...


We headed to a house party after this... much fun, amazing drinks, music and michael jackson dances... LOVED IT!



Dress: United colours of Benetton, Shades: Prada Butterflies, Earrings: My favorite random jewellry store(which I can never remember the name of), Shoes: Patricia Field, Bracelets: Versace, versace, swarovski etc

  1. Hello, sweetheart. You look fabulous. Yes, Michael's untimely death was indeed a tragedy.

    Wow, looks like you had a wonderful time, both at the restaurant (the food you eat always look so scrumptious)and the house party.

    I have something for you at my blog. Drop by when you get a chance.

    Ciao!

  43. i miss MJ. *tear*

    i love your hair!

    regarding you're earlier post, after talking to my mom, she pretty much said that Northern Nigeria is major strict/conservative when it comes to women's dressing.

    It's hot! so it makes sense to me to wear shorter clothing. I haven't been in Nigeria since i was 5 back in early '99, but i hope in the future, it'll change, so i can wear my cute whit bubble shorts! :)


    ps, have you been to Lagos? (it's my hometown!)

    Mo: i know... i miss him too... thanks love for stopping by... yeah nigerias north is quite conservative but funny enough I didn’t go there... i went to Lagos(which is where ur from right... its amazing there... so much fun things to do... and eat)... lol Heaven help u when u go though cos though they don’t really make any moves to... they constantly harass people about getting arrested for wearing certain clothes.. though it really does depend on where u go in Nigeria...
