Hey guys, trust your day is going fine? Yea it’s Wednesday, it’s usually a day we profile a celebrity & share inspiring things about them. But today, I’m going to take a moment to look at a few  things trending & happening across the globe & I hope you enjoy the read as much as I enjoyed writing it. 💃

Here they are:

Pippa turned heads & launched herself onto the society pages of Britain’s celebrity tabloids & press when she wore a figure- hugging Alexander Mcqueen’s dress at her sister Kate’s marriage to Prince William in 2011. She is said to be dating 40-year old Mathews nearly a year ago & no date has been fixed yet for the wedding.

• Taylor Swift/Kanye West “famous feud”: The feud between the pop star & rapper over the lyrics of his single “famous” took a bad turn with the release of video& phone call between both music stars. The video released online Sunday by Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian was a recording of West chatting by phone with Swift earlier this year in which the singer kinda “affirms” to the song which she later deemed offensive.

The full list is expected to be released in the new August issue of the prestigious magazine.

Hollup! Hollup!! I have a special feature today. I want to celebrate my course-mate & wife-to-be, Kingsley Ikpe aka double prince, aka KC & his wife-to-be, Chioma Kalu.


we were classmates at the uni, Kingsley was one of the brightest students we had in class. ( see some people (o.0s) running around to sit beside him during exams so they can copy his work) lol. No o, I was good too don’t go there ✋ 😄. It’s just an honest observation.

He was on the quiet side, easy going & rarely socialized. We had the noisy, very outspoken & what I’ll call the “back-benchers” in class but he was none of that. That’s why we weren’t surprised he came out tops with a high CGPA (4.14) landing him on the second class upper division category in our set.

He met his fiancée Chioma in September 2014, after a year of dating, he asked her to marry him . It’s been an incredible love story ever & i’m glad to share their story with you. Here are some lovely pictures…


They’d be saying “I-do” very soon & enjoy the happily- ever- after.

Congrats Kingso & chai-Oma. God bless your new home.

Cheers people, hope you enjoyed today’s post?

See ya soon.

😘 Jessica.
