Just a quick one........

I've been meaning to update that the so-called militants released the little girl I talked about here. Thank God. But they've since kidnapped a few other oil workers. We need a resolution, a revolution......something sha.

On to lighter matters though. I found out that I met Dolapo, the designer of the fabulous UrbanKnit bags and scarves after the fact! LOL. I was in London earlier this year as my avid readers know, and I went out to dinner with a group of fabulously young and talented Nigerian folks. Dolapo sat across from me at dinner and was just mad cool and unassuming. We all had great conversations going on around the table but I chatted with her specifically about her career as an architect. I had absolutely NO clue that I was sitting across from a cool fashionista and I mean that in the best way possible...LOL. I've been coveting one of those bags since I saw a feature on either Bella's or Icy's blog....I can't remember so I'm open to being corrected. I definitely plan to buy one once I extract myself from all the gbese that my GMAT prep is costing me....LOL. Or better yet, my birthday is coming soon....HINT, HINT. And by soon, I mean September!!!! LOL. More on that another time. So anyway, you guys support UrbanKnit o. I love it when I see my Nigerian sisters doing the damn thing.....an architect who also has a love for fashion and uses her technical skills to develop beautiful, sturdy, pieces in traditional fabrics. Nothing like it man!

I meant to put up another Changing the World piece today but I haven't had the time to look up anything but I will soon so that the series actually can be a series...LOL. So bear with me.

Finally, anyone else loving Chrisette Michelle?!!!!!!!!!! That young woman can SAAAANNNGGG! I love Golden and If I Have My Way. I'm about to go download the rest off I-Tunes this weekend. Here's the video for If I Have My Way. Have a fab weekend everyone. Love Y'all!

I think it's sad that kidnapping people has now become the 'norm' everywhere in the world, including Nigeria to get causes some publicity. I was really glad this girl was returned safely though.

Does Dolapo have a web page? There are a lot of amazing Nigerian women doing some great fashion at the moment ... I'm very impressed!
