Victoria Beckhams clothing line

Victoria Beckham launched her own clothing line this month and attend a private preview evening at Selfridges.

Her clothes are reported to have already sold out. Have to say I am a bit disappointed about that because i really love the dresses and cannot wait to see what Victoria will create next.

Prices ranges between £650 and £1,900, Hmmm a bit on the pricey side wondering if she would create something for the everyday high street shoppers like moi.

Word is Posh gained some assistance from designer Roland Mouret, remember the Roland Mouret dresses worn by every one from Beyonce to Dita Von Teese? Have to say good work POSH

Napket, SNOB Food!

Look what we found!

Ok we kept it away from you for 3 weeks now but i think this lovely chain of boutique cafes will blow you away this its amazing organic food.

Napket has a very slick interior design, including iPods at the breakfast bar and Philippe Starck chairs. The whole thing is covered in black gloss, even the toilet paper is black, creating a style more usually found in a slick bar than a cafe.

The name Napket comes from merging 'Napkin' and 'Market' which gives a clue as to the kind of food you get and the way its served up.

There's a 'create your own' salad bar as well as good quality ready-made salads and sandwiches.

'Snob food' is Napket's strapline but really it's neither expensive nor exclusive. It's a chic and surprisingly affordable place to eat.

Our Favorite at the moment here at "Hotbabes" is the GRANNY’S POT : Greek Yogurt, Homemade Granola, Honey £2.40 and FRESHLY JUICED FRUITS

lizz Wright

Right, this week we are loving the sultry voice of, 28-year-old Jazz vocalist Ms Lizz Wright, on her current album, 'The Orchard', she decided it was time to return to her roots, capture the simplicity of the blues and gospel music she heard whistle growing up as the daughter of a minister, in the rural town of Hahira, Ga, where she sang in church there with her two siblings.

Her first two albums, "Salt" (2003) and "Dreaming Wide Awake" (2005), were hits on Billboard's contemporary jazz chart.

This current album has a variety of producers including Craig Street, who has worked with Cassandra Wilson and k.d. lang, musician Toshi Reagon, and guitarist and longtime Bob Dylan sideman Larry Campbell. It look lizz two years to work on "The Orchard" album and we have to say her work is one to look out for

Sprinkles Cup cakes!

Look what we found!

Have you ever heard off Sprinkles Cupcakes? Its coming soon to London, we hear, we just hope its not a rumour, I mean how cruel will that be?!?

Sprinkles is One of Oprah's faves!! Owned by Charles and Candace

Apparently a producer from Oprah Winfrey Show, asked if the Beverly Hills shop could deliver 300 designer cupcakes to Chicago by 7 a.m the next day to be featured on "Breakfast with Oprah," where the influential talk-show host goes on about her favorite treats before millions of viewers, Luckily for them.

After the show aired after the Feb. 1 show, sales of Sprinkles cupcakes, which go for $3.25 a pop, grew 50 percent to 1,500 per day.

"You can't say no to Oprah," Sprinkles co-owner Candace Nelson said about the opportunity.

Sprinkles cupcakes come in many dazzling colours and flavours - coconut, chocolate, lemon, chai latte and mocha, red velvet and vanilla. All topped with a half-inch thick layer of butter-cream frosting, it is also good to know that the flavours change daily.

Sprinkles also cater for special occasions we think their wedding choices are spectacular for for couples looking beyond the traditional wedding cakes and wanting to try something new and more modern. You have 2 choices either stack a tower of cupcakes on tiered stands depending on the the size of the occasion or send individual homes with a sweet token of your wedding bliss

Kemi's Journal and Zack's Story.

This month we are featuring two books from the same author Abidemi Sanusi.

A little history on Abi Sanusi is we know she was born in Lagos, and was educated in the UK at a boarding schools in Sussex and Oxfordshire, and then at Leeds University. Sanusi is a human rights worker and writer, specializing in gender and conflict issues in West Africa.
A little bit about the books
Kemi's JournalKemi's Journal is the story of a twenty-something high-flying London advertising executive. Kemi has to reconcile her new found Christian faith with a demanding career, trying to get over a non-believing ex-boyfriend Zack and living in the shadow of her best friend Vanessa with her perfect fiancé Mark. Kemi's faith is sometimes very strong and can resist temptations and other times God takes a back seat as the arms of Zack appears more alluring. How does she cope with being a Christian in the cut-throat world of advertising, being intimate with Zack and the joy of a personal relationship with Jesus? This is a bold novel that tackles the moral decisions many young women have to make about crisis of faith, sex before marriage, unplanned pregnancy and abortion with openness, sensitivity and maturity.
Zack's Story
In this much awaited sequel to Kemi's Journal, readers get to hear Zack's side of the story. Welcome to Zack's world – in which he plays a rich confusion of roles. He didn't plan to be a father, but now that baby Yanis is on the scene he's determined to take parenting seriously, perhaps dealing with some of the dark shadows of his past en route. As for being a husband, he’s wanted that for a long time – but the volatile Kemi he loves so much doesn’t make it easy for him. And neither does the office temptress, Maxine! Then there is the part of the up-and-coming big shot corporate lawyer. Zack's determined to be a success, but will he have to learn the hard way about choosing between personal integrity and compromise? He also recently become a born-again believer. Is Zack just trying to please the Bible-hugging Kemi or will he make sense of the whole God thing for himself?

To find out more about the authour and other books from Cassava Republic Press, based on Abuja Nigeria,



'Hot babes' favorite TV show at the moment is


Based on Jeff Lindsay's novels
  1. Darkly Dreaming Dexter
  2. Dearly Devoted Dexter
This crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department.
It is on a different scale to the CSI series in case you are wondering, it is something new in fact watching CSI now I wait to see when Dexter is going to make an appearance to do forensic expertise. It feels like they are missing his charter in the programme. they should have a Dexter in every CSI series!
This is one to watch guys

Make Dem Talk.


Make dem talk
Oun ton ri lobe, ton se waru owo
Make dem talk
Kulikuli poun kan odi naira kan
Make dem talk
We want to know wasup idi ti garri se won
Make dem talk

Verse 1
My brother which kind nonsense be this
The name Nigeria self dey backfire
You no fit get common gari for five naira
For poor man to chop now menhn omo I tire
For junction na so, so sandi police dey collect
Agbero don take style leave picking pocket
Na so dem eye balls go deh shine for dem socket
And if you no drop egunje for dem na heavy racket

Oya my friend pack your car quick, quick
Wey your license or your twenty naira roja
I no deh send you if your papa na ex-soja
Na my salary government dey use dey grease dem shoulder

Na so i drop money for ten more policemen
B4 I count ten, I drop everything I earn
Even the small salary wey I get from Tribesmen
Na only God go punish all of dem

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Me and 2shot we wanna settle scores
No need to rush all ye senators
Egunje collectors, men in black against us
Of course we gat the guts to burst
Soja go, soja come
Turn by turn won so doye idile
Keran maje'le lasan lafi sole
Our economy be like comedy
Talent dey waste, no remedy
See dem big belle, dem call am prosperity
Bad man plenty pass ina we society
49 sitting, 99 standing pack us like sanding,
Ye, ye, yehi yeh

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Second hand goods plenty now like pure water
For oversea Naija be the gutter
Lagos state don full with plenty omota
See everywhere not one aje butter
Everybody na sharp man, no slacking
This man dey give the next man close marking
Hijacking money na solo runs now
Na which level dis economy dey go, I bow
Serious issues go dey lie inside coffin
If dem discuss am, na very often
No gocking umunamu talking
Coded tunes, 9ice and I run things

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
Make dem talk how is being run
Seka koju ibon si rawa ni oti lo
Ije teje tete emaje dagunro
Don't be offended if your name is on the roll
Kayin mu, kasufe, ikan loma gbele
Nigeria must be great, loju olo'te
Bawo lase mase, eja ka sowo po
Ka le olote kafi'mo sokan
Hausa to Igbo to Yoruba, hey!
Kafi'mo sokan
Repeat Chorus
