Back to back fashion post right! It’s the season guys and as I said in the last post, it’s award season, that translates to fashion season so don’t blame me guys blame the game 😎.

I like the SAGawards because it honours performances from both film and television, exactly! Double the fashion fun 😊. Let’s get started…

To say I was blown away by this teal outfit will be an understatement…hhmmmff, Scarlett brought the heat on, keep it coming girl, she’s the one to look out for on all carpets for me this season 💯

I think I need help, I’m beginning to like ruffles 😅. This was done right, And the colour is amazing. Her hair was styled right too, gives due honour to the dress as there is no distraction 😜.

I haven’t seen Alexis in a lot of best-dressed lists, but she’s on mine cause I love this look. It’s a very classy look, I wish she’d styled her hair differently though 🤔.

Oh Danai 😍, Damn girl! 😁. This look makes me want to lock myself in the gym 🤦🏽‍♀️. My girl got it right. 💯 Doesn’t she remind you of Viola Davies? She’s got her kind of vibe, and she’s very intense in her performances, just like Viola. Love her 💕.

Atta girl 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Cynthia looks like she’s enjoying this award season, she’s doing the most and we’re all in 🙌🏾. Talk about couture, if she’s serving us the high fashion now, wonder what she has in store for the Grammys 😁.

Looks like some people heard us 😊, in my last post on the Golden Globes awards, I complained about Jennifer and Reese Witherspoon always looking like last year on the Carpet 😜. Glad to see both ladies trying something different from their comfort zone. They always look nice either way.

Jlo always looks good and this is no exception. She seems to be big on bows at the moment, remember the big bow on her dress from the Golden Globes awards, well she has another big one but it’s behind the dress this time.

Jennifer Lopez in Georges Hobeika

There’s something gothic about Winona’s look and we approve ❤.

Another co-ordinating look from the carpet is this chic midnight blue look from Renee. She looks every inch a winner 🥇

Fashion from the Golden Globes 2020

Fashion from the Golden Globes 2020

Hey fashion lovers, its awards season💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽. I really hope we’ll be wowed this season. The season started as usual with the Golden Globes awards. Only a fashion lover will read this post because the Golden Globes awards is so yesterday… Moreover, the pics have been everywhere but you still clicked on this post – thank you. Trust me to bring my own perspective.

One thing I noticed on the carpet is how much our leading Men have aged😱. Did you see Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks? Eddie Murphy even Leo di Caprio! I’m really old I kept saying to myself as I looked at the pictures. The ladies aren’t doing too badly though – thanks to different beauty enhancements I suppose 🤷🏽‍♀️.

Anyway, let’s get straight to the business of the day 😉

I’m starting with Renee Zellweger in this powder blue piece. I haven’t seen her look this good in a longgg time, lithe is the word that comes to mind 🤩. I even recognized her (remember there was a time she was hardly recognizable) She probably finally got the face right 🤐. Good to see one of my old favourites back.

Renée Zellweger

Is someone playing ‘forever young’? 🙂 That song comes to my mind whenever I see Jlo. Aunty Jennifer hardly disappoints 😉, she looks like a late Christmas delivery. We love this package Jlo.

Jennifer Lopez in Valentino Couture

This TV reporter sure knows how to make a statement. Her dress is perfect for her body and in sync with the hair and make-up. Very good look

Jennifer Lahmers

I know some of you may not agree with this, but I loveee this dress, plus it’s in my favourite colour. And that yellow purse, Pursefection 😜! I will so rock this 😚 with different shows though 🤔.

The canary yellow! The bell sleeves!😍. Lovely look on Zoey, and my favourite shade of yellow too 😁.

I just love Dakota, no matter what she has on, she’ll show up on my best-dressed list 😍. Don’t you agree she always has this ethereal look… One of the few child stars who have managed to stay clean! love the colour of her dress.

Tiffany’s Dress looks good on her, she’s no fashionista as she doesn’t try too much. She just enjoys herself on the ted carpet. She looks nice.

Tiffany Haddish

Doesn’t she look like she needs to be wrapped up and shipped off to an eager little girl 😊? Sofia looks like a doll, I love it 💟.

I really like Isla’s dress, but I think it’ll look better on a taller frame.

The next set of ladies made the red-carpet fun.

Starting with Kaitlyn Dever in her tweed suit. Tweed, pearls and ribbon, how English! A cup of tea will be fine and add some scones, please 😊. I’m having that to celebrate this great look. 💯

Health Talk With Adeola: Postponing Periods

Health Talk With Adeola: Postponing Periods

Postponing Periods!

Happy new year everyone and yes, you read me right you can postpone your periods… I can imagine some smiles appearing on many faces (both females and males😉.


During the last holiday season, I found out that a lot of of my female friends were not very impressed that their periods usually occur during their holiday trips. It then occurred to me that so many females are unaware that they can actually prevent their periods from showing up when they don’t want it around for example, during travels, special anniversaries, exams etc.

Women not taking the combined oral contraceptive pill

This can be achieved by the use of prescription-only tablet Norethisterone 5mg three times daily starting 3 days before your next normal anticipated onset of menstruation. Your period will normally begin 2-3 days after stopping the norethisterone. Note that it can be taken for up to 3-4 weeks if necessary.

This should be used only on an occasional basis – for special events, rather than regular usage. It has to be prescribed by a doctor to make sure it is safe for you to have it because in a very limited number of people it may be unsafe to take these tablets for numerous reasons, or not advised at a particular time. These include women who are overweight, smokers, have liver disease, taking some other medications, or any other woman at risk of clotting – developing clots due to different reasons or medications or who have clotting disorders and some other relevant personal or family history.

This medication should only be taken on the advice of a doctor as these checks are not exhaustive and prescription is on individualised basis. Again, it is generally safe and widely prescribed for most women and I frequently prescribe it in my everyday practice.
Medroxyprogesterone acetate 10mgs twice or thrice daily is the alternative medication for those for which norethisterone is unsafe.


Women taking the combined oral contraceptive pill

If you are taking a fixed-combined oral contraceptive pill you can simply start the next pack without the usual seven-day break. It is safe to take two packs back-to-back in this way if done occasionally. You still only need to have A seven-day break at the end of these two packets.

If you are taking a triphasic or biphasic type of pill then you will need to take the last phase of the pills from the second pack immediately after finishing the first pack. Alternatively, you can change to a fixed-dose pill.

You should see your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure which pill you are taking. The pills most commonly used are fixed-dose. If it is triphasic or biphasic usually the colour of the pill or the packet will not be the same throughout the month.

So, no more period worries for those memorable or stressful times! 😊
For these medications, always consult your doctor and always read the information leaflet that comes with your medicine .
Hope this helps and I am happy to answer your questions.
Best Wishes,
Dr Adeola.

These are a few of my favourite things

These are a few of my favourite things

Hi guys 👋🏽, It’s been a minute or two! Hope you’re all good. I was so busy, leading up to the holidays that there was no time to blog. By the time my calendar cleared a bit, I’d been away for so long that it was hard to drag myself back.

Never mind that now as I’m back 😊. I thought it would be untoward not to blog before we end this year 2019. 2019 was good to me, it was a milestone year for me on different fronts – 10 years wedding anniversary, 40 years birthday (😱), I published my first book 😚 etc. Hope it was great for you too?

Remember last year I did a post on my favourite things (bought or gifts). Here are my favourite things for 2019…

2019 favorite things.

These are a few of my favourite things
  • Breville Blend Active ColourMix Family: This product is amazing as it allows you to make smoothies easily and what more, you can make for more people as it comes with four bottles. It works perfectly for my family as we are four and the lids come in different colours so everyone knows which is theirs. It’s fast, effective, makes smoothie making easy and saves on cleaning 😚.
These are a few of my favourite things
  • Bike cushion/pads: Anyone who spins or cycles will attest to how uncomfortable the saddle of those bikes can be. I spin – not that I enjoy it, but I find it very effective 😋. It was a struggle for a while, because of the discomfort. I was advised to buy padded cycling shorts but before I could purchase one, I discovered the saddle pads! It has been a game-changer for me since then. What more, they’re all over the place, I even found one at the pound store, oh yes only a pound! Thank me later 😊.
These are a few of my favourite things
  • Fairy/elf lights: Last Christmas, I got elf and Santa lights to decorate the boys’ room. It uses batteries and if you put a good quality one, it can last for a while. This elf lights have become my boys’ night light 😊. We used it the whole year and we’re still using it. It works very well and the boys really like it.
  • Oral-B Professional Care 600 Crossaction Electric Toothbrush: My husband’s dentist recommended an electric toothbrush to him 2 years ago. He started using it and couldn’t stop gushing about how effective it was and how I needed one. Stingy ‘me’ refused to budge, cause they’re quite pricey and I didn’t see anything wrong in using my normal toothbrush since they got the job done 🤷🏽‍♀️. So, early 2009, my husband picked it up as it was on sale! Oh my word! He was right all along, electronic toothbrushes are worth every dime you spend on them. They really get down to do the job and can get anywhere in your mouth. A good charge can give you a weeks’ use too. You can take advantage of the huge sales going on in most stores and grab yourself one, it’ll change your brushing game, trust me 😉.
  • Santa gift sacks: My Boys got this from their Aunty at Christmas and I think I was more excited about it than they were! *they were more interested in what was inside 😄. I’d actually tried to get them sacks and had previously searched on-line but was so spoilt for choice that I ended up not buying any😬. You see, I’m over wrapping papers, I mean they’re ripped off without any thoughts for the care used in picking it not to talk about the amount you pay for it! Moreover, we should all be conscious of the environment 😏. Even when gifting now, I go with gift bags as they can be re-used, I also always try not to write on the bags – yes, I’m that considerate 😏. The bags are big and can hold a lot of pressies, they’re attractive and can be personalized! No more Christmas present wrapping for me, ever! 😎

Aunty Lulu.
