  • Budget Manicure Review - Beautiful Nails Studio

    Fresh Manicure from Beautiful Nails Studio Bless them, they really do try, but this salon is more shabby than chic. I went to the Beautiful Nails Studio in the morning, so I was the only customer there. They were polite enough, and I'd bought my own colour (Rococo Nail Apparel!!), so we got right down to business.

  • Nubian Style - Sales Find: Lola Bag by Russell & Bromley

    Russell & Bromley Lola Bag in Pale Pink We found this lovely bag in the Russell & Bromley Sale last week. Sadly, the sale is only in-store and not online, so hurry to one of their locations before it's over. Down to £125, it's the perfect investment for a chic, lady-like bag that can take you from the office to a day around town.
  • Nubian Icon: Josephine Baker

    Our first post by the Marvelous Mary (MM)! Our Nubian Icon for this month is the illustrious Josephine Baker. Josephine Baker, born Josephine Freda Mcdonald (June 3 1906), was an American-born French dancer, singer and actress. Known for her comical yet sensual appeal which was derived from her inclination for nearly nude costumes; a notable costume featured 16 bananas strung into a skirt whilst performing in La Revue Negre in 1925 in France.
