Trying to figure out what to write today has been one of the most draining and difficult things I've ever had to do and what I realized is that these mechanisms of my body, mind and language are too ill-equipped to portray with justice the gravity of the loss that I feel.
Goldie Harvey was my soul mate. Everything about Goldie was unique. Everything about Goldie was complex. She wasn't only beautiful, she was so captivatingly beautiful in and out that no eye could avoid her, and once she had hooked you with her charming innocence, you were blown away by a beauty that was at once shy and confident, sultry and innocent, inviting and biting and as such, I always described her as a Siren of Sorts! I used to tell my friends, "Wait until you meet my personal person Goldie, you go love am die." And I was never proven wrong. We have all been in love with Goldie Harvey.
When I met her, I was blown away by the bizarre and beautiful world that was wrapped up in this tiny whimsical creature.

AIB wishes everyone a happy St. Valentine's Day celebration, let's take today to recommit to love- the love between a man and his wife, between parents to their children, neighbours to one another; to humanity, an individual to his country, the government to her people, an employee to his organisation, bosses to their subordinates, our love to the environment, and ultimately, our love for God. Let's make love a way of life. Happy Val's Day people. I love you all.

Ok, maybe it was a bad makeup day for Kim Kardashian. The reality star was at her sister, Khloe's on Tuesday looking like a scarecrow with very heavy make-up - super thick foundation, lip gloss and visible eyelash glue. She should know better than this, too much makeup doesn't do anybody any good, not even if you are as beautiful as Kim K.
Kim Kardashian had a heavy hand when she applied her makeup today.

First Lady Michelle Obama looked every inch like a stunning black amazon Tuesday night to the annual state dinner. She wore a breathtaking powder blue and black lace gown designed by Carolina Herrera to the event. I like the way she subtly showed off the gown in last pic. Amazing woman she is.

Obafemi Martins is absolutely a proud dad and I love that about him. The star striker took his four months old baby with Abigail Barwuah, who by the way is controversial footballer, Mario Balotelli's sister. Abigail is Obafemi's baby mama number three. I hope that's his last bus stop as far as the baby mamas go. LOL.

Nigerian wonderkid Kelechi Iheanacho has signed a pre-contract with Manchester City and is billed to arrive at the Etihad in October, his father confirmed to brilafm.net.
“He can’t sign but what he has done is sign a pre-contract with Manchester City pending his 18th birthday.”
According to a report on goal.com a £250,000 (€300,000) transfer fee has been agreed on for Iheanacho, with a further £300,000 (€360,000) being paid to the Taye Academy in Owerri and £350,000 (€420,000) to the youngster’s father.
Iheanacho who won the African Young Player of the Year 2013 at the GLO/CAF African Player of the Year 2013 and also the Golden Ball at the Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year, is currently on holiday in Barcelona and will make a brief return to Nigeria before moving to Manchester City when he turns 18 in 10 months’ time.
Congratulations to him.
So actress Ebube Nwagbo today instagrammed a selfie which got me taking a closer look. Two things literally crossed my mind with the pic, namely- she either scored a 'yay' or 'nay' with the photo. Honestly, I am still struggling to figure out which one it is, I guess, its because there are some things in the photo that don't quite sit well, (and its not just the pimple alone), maybe its because I've seen her in better pictures. What do you guys think?
