JULIA SARR JAMOIS!!!

Posted by mickung
I never do random posts except I adore the person far too much to keep it limited to 140 characters on twitter.

Okay... here goes..!

I LOVE JULIA SARR JAMOIS.

I can’t begin to explain my love for her… she is such a badass! (Pardon my language, lovers)
I have several questions for her when I finally meet her, but these ones keep popping up every time.

*I mean…why is she so cool?? I know I am cool too (hey, gotta toot my own horn too. LOL) but WHY IS SHE SO COOL.??
*Why is her Afro so lush? Her Afro gives me life. It’s really to miss the Afro and the eye-catching outfits she wears.
*Does she make money being fashion editor of Wonderland? I know making money ain’t easy, so how does she stay steady being so chic?
*Why does she have such fabulous vintage items? I know there are lotsa vintage stuff everywhere... But why is it that hers are the coolest?









*SIGHS*

I so wanna be like her.

Last season was full of surprises and great shows as well as few failures.

This new season that begins in October doesn't bring much novelty in regards to new shows, but there are new shows that are promising!

The highlights are the new season of Bakuman and the return of Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi! 

Bakuman season 2: 

Premiere Date: October 1

Our protagonists are on the verge of publication and new challenges arise!


The Pros: the great story, animation and pacing that follows the manga arc.

The Cons: lack of promotion by NHK

Guilty Crown

It will premiere on the Nnoitamina block, the story is set in 2039 and revolves around Shū, a boy who has acquired an ability called the "power of kings" that allows him to draw out weapons from another person. He joins a resistance group named "Undertaker" which aims to restore Japan's independence from an international organization known as the GHQ.

The Pros: from the trailers, the animation looks great, the premise is ok.

The Cons: if it drags out too much, it could have the same fate as Deadman Wonderland.

Premiere date: October 13

Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi season 2 


The Pros: deliciously unique series with great relationship plots, the guilty pleasure of fujoshis everywhere!! Bishonen-ai!


The Cons: huh?? 

Premiere date: October 7

Working!! 

Based on the four-koma manga, it concerns the activities of the unusual employees at the Wagnaria family restaurant, the fun will ensue!

The Pros: yes, more comedy! It seems to be the new trend.

The Cons: a good comedy series rarely fails, though there's always the possibility it will.

Premiere date: October 1

Un-go! 

There is quite the mystery around this one, it will also premiere on Nnoitamina slot. Its production values are already high with their opening theme done by School Food Punishment, 'How to go', while the ending theme is "Fantasy" by LAMA.

The Pros: did I mention that this is done by the Full Metal Alchemist original staff??

The Cons: there's not much info, this could be the underdog horse which we all know what happens when it wins. The series is based on a light novel set on the Meiji era with a detective theme.

Premiere date: October 13

Ben-to 

Also based on a light novel, the story revolves around a poor high school student named Yo Sato. Sato goes one day to the supermarket and finds a bento (lunch box) for sale at half price.

The Pros: looks really cute from the trailers. I hope the story's quality exceeds it.

The Cons: people that hate moe.

Premiere date: October (TBA)

Yuri Seijin Naoko san 

The other guilty pleasure of the season for yuri lovers.

The Pros: it could have the same success as Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi, if the plot doesn't revolve much around yuri, but actually stories.

The Cons: precisely because of the theme, it could not last long. It's a gamble.

Premiere date: November 30

Phi Brain- Kami no Puzzle 


The adventure series is about two high-schoolers that challenge dangerous “philosopher’s puzzles”.

The Pros: the promotion has been around for a year now. The artwork and animation looks pretty good for the trailers.

The Cons: will it go the same way as Kamisama no Memochou?

Premiere: October (TBA)

Bleach 

The Pros: the great fan expectation over when the new arc post-Aizen will be animated. The last Kageroza arc, though a filler, was well animated with good fights at the end.

The Cons: the fillers!! It seems they will have us with one year of fillers!

Naruto Shippuden

The Pros: this show has been through such up and dows that it's part of their charm. Really, it's a classic show!

The Cons: More fillerology until they finally decide to catch up!

One Piece 

The Pros: over 500 episodes make this anime among the legendary. The most read manga in the world will always keep this show alive.

The Cons: well, the usual. Fillers and tons of haters.

Beelzebub:

The Pros: this show has really grown strong, it's already going the path of the classic. The characters and situations in these last episodes have been nothing short of epic histerical. The animation quality has improved to a standard.

The Cons: really? There are no cons?

Gintama 

The Pros: After a long break, this show returned on January stronger than ever. The great advantage that both this show and Beelzebub have is that they can have their own filler episode without straying from the manga since it's comedy.


The Cons: frankly, nothing

SKET Dance

The Pros: this series is going strong to the point that it's on crossovers with Gintama and now Bakuman.

The Cons: there isn't any except if they stick to lame episodes for too long, which I don't it would happen.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyo

The Pros: I can say that this show has quietly become the strongest show of the season without making much of a fuss. The outstanding quality of the story and the animation has endured greatly.


The Cons: I kinda wish that this series would be a continuous one instead of per season, but that would decrease the quality, wouldn't it? Who really wants Nuramago fillers? Yuck.

¬ ¬          *stares at Blue Exorcist filler arc that ends the season in a low note.

In my last post, I promised to show y’all “Behind the scene” pictures of my shoot with TV Personality, Yvonne Ekwere. The shoot’s theme is less fashion-y but to pour more light on the recent humanitarian duties, Yvonne has been involved with.
The shoot was fun with Obi Somto, Nneka, Kezie and my Styling assistant for the day, Ebere. The location was indeed a blessing and the warm families allowed us use their abode for the shoot without collecting a dime.
The shoot was indeed amazing and awesome. It also made me realize that I have a lot of things to be grateful to God about, Irrespective of other problems. These families were happy to see us in their midst and that gave me so much joy.
ENJOY THE PICTURES:-



PHOTOGRAHER, OBI SOMTO.

SOMTO AND YVONNE.

THE FAMILY.

TOUCH-UP! TOUCH-UP!


SMILES!! J

TOO CUTE!

NNEKA,YVONNE,KEZIE AND I.

Reimei no Arcana Chapter 24

Posted by mickung
Reimei no Arcana Chapter 24
Finally, it has been released! Nakaba with her companions finally entered the country of Senan and there they met Prince Adel. He is the heir and next in line to the throne of Senan. Well, he's really egoistic and feeling-cool guy. I don't like him. He scorned Nakaba and treated her like a loser. I really pity her. She was perhaps treated unequallUnder certain circumstances, they will be now heading to Senan's castle together with Prince Caesar. This way, they can hide in the castle which seemed to be the safest place for them. But out of their awareness, this will be a great danger for them especially to Caesar.

A sneak peek to Chapter 24: My favorite scenes
Nakaba was again bullied by Prince Adel but this time, Nakaba showed off a sad facial expression which provoked Prince Adel. Before, when Nakaba was being treated badly, she would just throw off an indifferent expression showing no emotions at all, a total opposite right now. Luckily for her, her knight and shining armor Prince came to the rescue. :-)
Prince Caesar was being serious protecting her. If a "sharp stare" could kill a person, Prince Adel might be lying dead right now...LOL.

Caesar saw a tower next to the castle and thought it might be some castle's annex. He wasn't aware that it was Nakaba's "cage" for about 14 years. She was getting anxious about Loki telling Caesar her past situation and run away from away. 

She run away from him as fast as she could but still he caught her. 

Did she really think that Caesar would hate her because of her past? Well, if he is the same as the person before, maybe he would. But he definitely changed, her appearance (short hair) and his attitude. 

So, that's it. The king has secret motive of accepting them in the castle. All along, he was planning to kill the prince. What will happen to Prince Caesar now that his life is in danger? What will Nakaba do about this? 

Find out on the next chapter!

On Saturday, September 24, 2011 I had to style a shoot and as usual, I dressed comfortably. After various outfit changes, I went along with these Crop top and high-waisted shorts. The Crop-top is a piece from MOOFA’s new S/S 2011 collection and it’s made out of jersey and really comfy. I know y’all are tired of seeing the name, MOOFA but whenever I fall in love with a fashion brand, personality, film, colour etc, I keep on going on and on about them like a broken record. *chuckles*
Anyways, here is what I wore. The “behind the scene” pictures shall be posted soon. J


Model wearing the crop top.

Me carrying some of the pieces.

My styling kit bag.





Since they stay steady staring... why not take a picture with them! LOL

I wanna thank those who take time out of their busy schedule to email me. I have so many email addresses, I just realized and sometimes I don’t check the rest, thus might reply your emails late. The main email address is Onyinyefafiobi@yahoo.com
Don’t hesitate to email me over anything. Networking,fashion enquiries,etc

There are three major types of bob hairstyles that can be created through the use of hairdressers that are looking for a modern take on the traditional bob hairstyles; the short bob, the long bob and the asymmetrical bob haircut. Depending on which haircut is chosen, there are different techniques which are used to create these hairstyles. 
The short bob hairstyle is a great way to make use of short hair and come into spring with a light and airy hairstyles. There are certain bobs which can have layers cut into the bob, this is one of those styles. The layers which can be cut into the bob can create a blunt edge through the bottom or can be used to create a rounded bob hairstyle.
