Ciara: My Pregnancy is a Blessing

ciara_pregnant

Finally last year’s worst kept secret is out. Ciara is pregnant with rapper, Future’s baby! She stopped by The View earlier this week to formally announce the good news. When my time comes, I can only hope that pregnancy looks half as good on me as it does on Cici! We really have to hand it to her. Most women would have a difficult time having a baby with a man who already has three children from three different women, but the singer is actually handling the complicated terrain with grace. Future’s first child — a son, now 11 years old — was mothered by Jessica Smith, who recently demanded more child support from the rapper. Future has also reportedly fathered children with two other women named Brittni Mealy and India J. Ciara has actually reached out to — and met up with — Brittni and India.

After confirming her pregnancy on The View, she made her way over to Huffington Post Live where she sat down for a one-on-one chat with social commentator Marc Lamont Hill. The mommy-to-be was glowing with positivity as she dished on her new pregnancy and the baby’s gender. She also dished on bonding with the monthers of Future’s kids, finding love and her maternity style.

On her pregnancy: It really is a blessing. It’s the most exciting time in my life. I’m really  excited, like a little kid. You know when the kids are getting ready for  Christmas and you can’t wait to see what’s under the tree? (more…)


How to Wear Lace Front Wigs

Ladies, please take a look at the picture of Ciara above. That is how NOT to wear a lace front wig. Let me start by explaining what inspired this post. Quite frankly I’m scared. Scared for my Kenyan sisters who are notorious for copying trends without researching the trend. I went to my hairdresser this past weekend. She had on what she thought was a lace front. It looked like 10 dead racoons piled on top of her head. This same atrocious looking lady, tried to convince me to get my hair done just like hers. In her defence, she’s really good at what she does. So I chose to assume that she was not responsible for the mess on her head. I politely declined her offer and insisted on sticking to my same old comfortable style, which looks amazing if I may say so myself.

As with most things, it’s better to start with definitions. Simply put, lace front wigs are full wigs with mesh lace attached in front and beyond the “hair line” of the wig, which is custom fitted, trimmed, and temporarily glued to ones skin around the hairline.  You can’t see where the lace starts or ends. The mesh lace also provides for natural looking partings in the hair. The difference between a full lace wig and a lace front wig is that full lace wigs can be parted anywhere throughout the wig, while lace front wigs can only be parted in a limited portion of the front.

Ciara and Lil Kim Perform in Zimbabwe

Ciara and Lil Kim put on quite a show in Harare, Zimbabwe this past weekend, along with Fat Joe and DJ Scratch. Timbaland, who was supposed to be the show’s headliner, was a no-show. He however apologised to disappointed fans via a recorded video message broadcasted on the big screen at the Borrowdale Racecourse. South African businessman Kenny Kunene of ZAR Empire claimed Timbaland’s plane developed a “technical fault” during refuelling.

Timbaland’s no-show was soon forgotten as Zimbabweans were treated to rousing performances by Lil Kim, Ciara and Fat Joe. Lil Kim hit the stage with her assets barely concealed as usual, gave her all and confessed how much she loved Zimbabwe. She then paid tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G – by performing two of his club hits ‘One More Chance’ and ‘Juice’. She then signed off with Billie Jean, a hit byKing of Pop Michael Jackson. Now that I would have paid good money to see. Waiting for a youtube video in 5, 4, 3, 2… (more…)


Whistle Blower For Peace

Ciara was spotted at the airport as she headed home from her vacation in Miami. She wore a Falling Whistle around her neck in support of a nonprofit campaign for peace and aid for children in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, Falling Whistles. The child soldiers who are too small to hold guns are given whistles and are put on the front lines. Their job is to blow a whistle to let everyone know when the enemy is coming, so they are the first ones killed.

Falling Whistles is a small window into our world’s largest war.

Over a year ago, laying in Titu Prison, 5 boy-prisoners spoke of the whistleblowers.

Abducted in Congo and too small to carry a gun, boys were given merely a whistle and sent to the front lines of battle.

The sound of their whistles calling together was meant to frighten the enemy away. Failing that, their sole duty was to receive the bullets with their bodies. (more…)


Ciara’s Basic Instinct CD Insert

Am I the only one who had no idea that Ciara has an album coming out? Her label is doing a horrendous job of marketing her. Not that I was planning on buying it but I’m sure she has fans somewhere… Don’t kill the messenger. I loved her back in her Goodies days. Feel like back then she was more focused on music and dancing, which is her real talent. Now she’s become like all the other oversexed chics. Why does it always have to be about nudity? If you think I’m lying, you should take a look at her CD inserts after the break. I guess you have to show extra skin to sell albums these days. Though it just doesn’t work for me… If you’re interested, Basic Instinct will be in stores on Tuesday, December 14th. Let me know if it’s worth it, won’t you?

She shows off her ASSets in the sizzling images, photographed by Gomillion and Leupold—basking in the sun, posing in her bra and panties, and dancing in the rain. (more…)


Hot Trend Alert: Leopard Print Shoes

I’ve loved leopard print ever since my mum bought me a beautiful velvet leopard print skirt back when I was a teenager. Have no idea what happened to it but it was such a prized possession. Leopard print can look very HOT. However…you have to wear it in moderation, and know what to pair it with. Too much can have you looking like a cross breed of a leopard and a human. (more…)


Hot Trend Alert: Chanel Pearl Sandals

Ciara tweeted the above pic about a week ago with the caption “I love my new Chanel sandals!” I’m absolutely in love with them too! They look a bit difficult to walk in though. But who cares as long as they look divine! They feature a large Chanel engraved pearl. They are available for $450 plus depending on where you buy them. If I find a store in Nairobi that sells them I will forever be a loyal customer. More pics after the break. (more…)
