Hey yo✌️ I’m back and Today I’ll be doing a post on this #FromWasteToWealth I created. It all started in my head, I was going through some old clothes and I saw this purple et blue,flared gown and I thought ‘its colour still looks OK.. look at how it flares… Omg! I can make an off-shoulder top! And that’s how a gown-to-off-shoulder genius emerged! I might as well be called The Design Einstein 🤓 Well here is the before and after pictures of the gown which was cut and converted to an off-shoulder top (with sleeves attached). It may not be perfect but it’s never a crime to try.
Here👆 you’ll see that some part of the gown is missing because I had already cut the bottom part of it and fitted it to the size of my bust and my preferred shoulder to waist length. Then I measured my bust and I added 5inches extra so it’ll ruffle (e.g my bust is 36 but I used 42/44 inch length. It varies per bust) and cut off the extra and started making an elastic space by sewing (hand sewing) 2 inches with allowance ( i.e allowance is a space for where the elastic will pass through) in from the top. Then I put in elastic band strip measured to my exact bust size 36inches so it’ll be fitted. I fitted in the elastic strip by attaching one end to a safety pin and holding the other end.Then I sewed the two ends together
Then I cut the sleeves off the gown. Here 👇
Then I turned the sleeves inside out (it gave this balloon sleeves effect). Luckily the sleeves has some elastic band so I didn’t have to sew in an elastic again but if you’re working with something that doesn’t have, you’d need to create some elastic allowance like I did the first one
And I attached it to the same place where my arms will fit That was pretty much the heavy lifting of the work but I went further by embellishing it with the ornaments I saw on the gown,this 👇 And here was what I had It definitely added the extra oomph And after washing and ironing, here is me taking a mirror selfie with my very own off-shoulder top👇 (I look good don’t I?😜) Well so that’s how I converted the abandoned gown to something very useful and trendy ‘An off-shoulder top’. Maybe I have a flair for designing, maybe I should pursue a career in designing, I don’t know but all I know for now atm is, I’m gonna find me some hot jeans and a killer heels to rock this top😂 . Till next time loves. Remember, irrespective of what the world wants Be your kind of beautiful! Xtraordinairewoman®
So wake me up in the spring while I’m high of my American dream,we don’t always say what we mean that’s the lie of an American Teen … Okay, y’all know I’m about the youngsters, up and coming because we are the ones who are about to take the world by storm because

The Grammys was a success! Bruno Mars & Kendrick Lamar sweeping most of the main categories. We saw celebrities, full of smiles and enthusiasm in their best on the red carpet and with white roses in significance to the support against sexual assault but for some it wasn’t much of a success for them on the red carpet. I know no one has the right to jugde anyone but these are just comments.
Here are : Best and Worst dressed for the Grammys 2018.
1. Rita ora
Black is beautiful! And definitely Rita slayed in this beautiful black dress with its thigh high slit. Bravo!
2. Camila Cabello
Red for the res carpet. Camilla stunned in this dress and caught the eyes of all.
3. Rick Ross
You may all be wondering what happened? But all I have to say is – big ups to you, Ricky Rozay👍
4. Chrissy Tegen
Ever beautiful, ever stunning Chrissy, stunned in this metallic dress with her baby bump.
5. Cardi B
Cardi B, in this classic tail dress. You can’t come around her way!
6. Zayn Malik
All toned down but still cute, Zayn proved simplicity ain’t stupidity.
7. Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey looked absolutely beautiful in this dress.
8. DJ Khaled
Another one! Looking good in this cherry red suit with his mini, Asahd.
Wow, she looks angelic. Watching out for you this year.
9. Ryan Seacrest
Totally love the look. Ryan is someone I look forward to seeing on the red carpet because he always gets it right
This multi-coloured dress was a bold move mama-to-be but we’re happy you took the risk and slayed!
11. Bebe Rexha
Many have mixed feelings on this but for me, I think she looks beautiful, the mermaid cut suits her figure well and the hair compliments her outfit as the icing the the cake. I think she looks gorgeous.
13. Big Sean
He looks totally dapper in this outfit. Like the boss he is.
1. Jaden Smith
Jaden, Jaden, Jaden I think we all understand you’re going through a phase most youths pass through but wearing a patch work to the red carpet is a no-no!
2. Joy Villa
Almost prom queen. Well maybe she was opting for a princess themed look but this looks childish.
3. Heidi Klum
Okay I know lingerie in kinda in now but Heidi this ain’t the walk-in for America’s got talent, it’s the Grammys dear.
4. Lil Uzi Vert
Talk of ‘compliment my style‘, we know he incorporates the Gothic theme to his style but here,we don’t know what Lil Uzi Vert had in mind but this is too damn rocker-edgy for the Grammys… it’s the way life goes
5. Lady Gaga
We all know the ever-fierce, i-don’t-give-a-* red carpet dare-devil Lady Gaga. The dress looks OK but the pants under and the shoes killed the look.
Going cowgirl on us. I think this would have looked better for Halloween.
7. Gold link
Combo : Turban,can-that-be-taken-for-a-police-jacket, chains in the belt hole. .Uhmmm. Psst! Goldlink, I’m still looking for the link to this outfit
8. Tyler the Creator
The colour isn’t too bad but the head gear and scarf makes it all look clumsy. Moral lesson, less is more.
9. Anna Kendrick
She looks like she’s came back from work. Love the lavender shoes by the way. I think that’s the best part of your outfit.
10. Jenny McCarthy
Uh-oh! This doesn’t work at all. Nice dress, nice shoes but the hair,shades(???) And gloves messes everything up.
So that’s it everyone, these aren’t only my opinions I’ve gathered information from reliable and guaranteed style sources (that’s why I wasn’t quick to upload) and for me after sieving out some these are what I had left on my decision table (not like I have a table marked ‘Decision’😁😁). So keep it locked here. We bring you the best,valid and trusted content on the planet.
Valentine’s Daaaaaay!! 💕💕💋😄 One of my favorite Holidays of the year because you get to show love not just to your spouse but family,friends and the less privileged. But today,my main focus is on the guys. I know guys who don’t do anything special for their girl because they have no idea (bad,terrible 😔). So hence the song👇
🎵they say love is in the air,so I hold my breath till my face turns purple🎵 —- HYFR
🙄 Guys, there’s no need to do that this year! 🤷 I know most guys are clueless when it comes to buying a gift,planning a romantic getaway,what things to get a girl. They keep thinking – what does she even like? 🤔 (P.S Bro,if you do not know what she likes, she shouldn’t be dating you🤷) So I’m putting my cape and mask on and am becoming Supergirl because Oyinda to the rescue🕺,you can always count on me! (P.S it’s the end of the month, so you just cashed out. You really need this😉)
So here are 8 things you can do for your girl for Valentine’s Day❤️
1. Roses and a teddy bear From a Nigerian woman’s perspective, both are better together, surprise your significant other by buying her two of the most romantic things a girl loves –> roses and a teddy bear (preferably a white coloured teddy bear and P.S give her something to cuddle when you’re not there🤗)
2. Dinner : this is the ideal time to this. Make reservations at a place, it doesn’t have to be expensive, take your girl for dinner and engrave this gesture in mind forever or ……expand your horizon Mr Romantic and stay in cook her dinner, that’s the zenith! ‘seeing the man of your dreams cook for you’.. you can’t put a price on that
3. A box of chocolates : ‘chocolates’ as simple as this sounds,its – the way to a woman’s heart. I mean who wouldn’t want their boo showing up with a box of chocolates just for them?? Literally every girl would. Surprise her with a box of these yummy goodies! Girls love chocolates, accept it or …….accept it😁
4. Book a room : if you’re really romantic,this one’s for you. Book a room,phone ahead for flowers to be arranged on the bed and I promise you the reaction on your girl’s face will be priceless.
5. Jewellery : she’s special right? She’s your priceless jewel right? Bruv, love is not by mouth oh! 🙄. So why don’t you compliment your words with this piece evidence – Jewellery! It could be a necklace,earrings anything that’ll make her feel special.
6. Movies : what’s better than this? go see a movie you both love or wanna watch or her favorite movie. The movies is a romantic place. And if you don’t want to, you can watch a movie at home instead or combine no.2 with movies and Valentine’s day will be a blast. Assured!😉
7. Clothes : Gucci on! Buy your girl clothes! (Especially in the colour red). I know you like her all fancy and dressed up, so buy her something that’ll make her smile each time she checks her wardrobe or puts it on.
8. Propose! 🎵Will you marry me?🎵 : This applies to a select few. If you are in a serious relationship and you think you’ve found your missing rib, why not propose to her on Valentine’s day? I know you might be thinking it sounds so cliché but damn it! Valentine’s day is a really good time to do it. Propose! Make it memorable!
Bottom line,whatever it is you’re doing, ‘it’s too small’ or ‘it won’t matter or make any sense’ but trust me,when it’s from your heart it’ll mean the whole world to her. So Happy Valentine’s day folks, make sure you spread the love! Call that family member, friend you haven’t spoken to in a while and tell them I love you. ❤️✔️
Another one! DJ Khaled is back with even more major keys for 2018, and his latest gem is geared toward weight loss. According to the mega-producer, he is on a mission to lose two pounds each week for an undetermined amount of time. While losing weight and being healthy isn’t exactly something new, Khaled has a new plan that is bound to make his aspirations come true.
The Grateful producer announced on Jan. 1 that he has joined Weight Watchers, and he’s already seen results. To celebrate the healthy news, Khaled shared a five-part announcement on Instagram. “In full 2018 mode… Excited to living this #WWFreestyle life with you,he wrote.
“I already got rid of 20 pounds and ready for more. Ride with me on my journey to greatness. Bless up Weight Watchers!!!”
The short statement was attached to a series of videos and photos of Khaled. In one video, his personal chef served him a variety of healthy meals. In another video, he was seen working out on the treadmill and playing with his son, Asahd.
“#2018secured what I love about this it’s a life style and I still can enjoy at the same time ride wit me though this journey,” he added. “I CAN SHOW YOU BETTER THAN I CAN TELL YOU … I’m so focused let’s go!! @weightwatchers .”
“Weight Watchers is all about being great and being your best self,” Khaled said in one of the videos. “My son is my love, my life, and I need to be great for him. To be great is to be healthy; to be healthy means a shift in my lifestyle, and the new WW Freestyle program is all about healthier habits for my life.”
🔑🔑 MAJOR KEY ALERT!!! 🔑🔑 In full 2018 🔑🔑 MAJOR KEY ALERT!!! 🔑🔑 In full 2018 mode…excited to be living this #WWFreestyle life with you. I already Got rid of 20 pounds and ready for more. Ride with me on my journey to greatness. Bless up Weight Watchers!!!

How it works:
His plans are to work out, eat what he likes but in a guided way through calories calculation (by his chef) per food and food substitution for lower calorie intake. So he still gets a plate of his favorite delicacy but with low calories. For me that’s smart✔️
We all have goals to get the hottest beach body by the summertime, but if anyone can achieve it, it would most likely be DJ Khaled✔️
