It’s been said that Nicki Minaj has a restraining order out for DJ Khaled, but apparently the rumours are all false. In fact just two days after the proposal, Nicki was spotted showing off a diamond engagement ring that looks like the $500k ring DJ Khaled proposed with.

Nicki isn’t really engaged to DJ Khaled but she’s kinda stringing along to help him promote his upcoming album. The two are said to be friends. Alleged friends of Nicki say she found the public proposal funny.

Nicki is engaged to her long-time boyfriend and hype man, Safaree.

What happened to sticking to pure talent and selling records without building scandalous hypes?

Oh yes denims like scotch will never cease to reach a halt, so here we have compiled 3-way looks for the gentlemen with suave to take a hint on how to look awesome without looking like they’ve tried too hard.

Look 1 : Simple Day-wear

Well gents this look is plain simple and breezy, it’s for those days out with friends during the day. Get a short sleeved denim shirt (fold the sleeves) and wear a WHITE tshirt or vests, pair them with a different shade of denims and leather sailor shoes. You’re good for the day.

Look 2 : Formal Work Wear

Yet again get yourself some luxurious thick cotton checked shirts, pair them with earthy coloured skinny denims, break the look with brown leather shoes and belt, finish the look with a different low-key (grey specifically) blazer then it’s off to work and drop the blazer for the night out after work.

Look 3 : Street Suave

Looking suave is easy, really, this punk rock and Texas (cowboy) look hails from a long while ago, find yourself some washed-out denim shirts, pair them with skinny denim pants, put your plush brown shoes on and unbutton that shirt to shed some skin, an accessory for your neck like a rosary (whether Christian or not) is essential. Rock a punk belt then you’re game.

Style is not dressing up

Excuses, we all have them.
And when it comes to men and style we’ve heard it all, but one that deserves a special mention is the old ‘I don’t like dressing up’

Many men have a misconception that looking good means wearing a suit and tie every single day and this couldn’t be further from the truth.

A very important aspect of style is looking good for every occasion. So even if you’re never have to wear a suit (and should) dress with style, from your work attire to your relaxed weekends.

Whatever you call it; dandy, metrosexual, boulevardier, or retrosexual, it all comes down to how you take care of yourself. Don’t be afraid to look good. You are the product of a billion-process evolutionary success: act like it.

Sophisticated Makeup Tips 101

Posted in Celebrities, Fashion, Fashion Icons, grooming, Haute, lifestyle, makeup, Music, Now We Know, Reads, Style, Suave, Trends, Uncategorized, Winter on June 12, 2013 by touchofsuave

1st. Apply eye makeup primer on your lids up to your brow. You may also use a light coat of foundation. Then, curl your lashes – this is a slight shift on the norm. Curling your eyelashes before putting on eye shadow helps prevent smudging especially because you will be using a liquid eye liner.

2nd. Pull your lid gently upward to expose the inner rim of your eyelid. Then, Using a black eyebrow pencil, draw a line on the inner rim of your upper eyelid. See illustration below.

1 Step 2

3rd. Draw a line on the outer rim of your upper lid using the same eyebrow pencil. Be sure to line the skin directly above the upper lash line. Then, blend in the black liner to the color of the skin by using an angled brush. No need to worry about shaky hands and un-straight lines! See illustration below.

2 Step

4th. Using a liquid liner this time, draw 4 dashes on your lid right above the pencil line and connect them. The idea of combining a pencil with a liquid liner is to get a more lasting result. The pencil locks the liquid in place.

5th. Now, for the tricky part of the cat eye process! Using a finger, trace the crease on your upper lid and moving outward until you reach the bony area. Place a tiny dot on that area to mark the spot. See illustration below.

3 Step 5

6th. Using the liquid liner again, drag the tip starting from the dot down to the outer corner of your eye. Thicken the line so that it looks seamless. See illustration below.

4 Step 6

7th. Allow the liquid liner to dry and set for several minutes. As soon as this is done, apply a cream eye shadow in a neutral color on your entire lid. For highlight, dab some shimmer using a metallic eye shadow on the area just above your crease line and at the inner corner. Finish off with a coat of mascara! See illustration below.

5 Step 7

The cat eye is a technique that will get easier with practice and like everything else, practice makes perfect! It’s also a look that will fit all types of eyes and face shapes. Try on some cat eye makeup today!

Light Packing For The Durban July Weekend

Posted in Bags, Burberry, Celebrities, Fashion, Fashion Icons, Fashion Quotes, grooming, Haute, lifestyle, Louis Vuitton, mensfashion, mensstyle, menswear, Music, Now We Know, Reads, Shoes, Street Suave, Street Wear, Style, Suave, Trends, Uncategorized, Winter, winter, wintertrends on June 12, 2013 by touchofsuave

So Durban July is upon us once again and the thing with it that can be so strenuous is one, PACKING, a gentleman’s worst nightmare. Packing light so that everything will fit into a carry-on beach bag is a skill not everybody can get the hang of because people tend to over pack. But travelling light is a no-brainer. Yes, it can be done, especially when it’s a beach trip and especially being a man – it spares you from the pressure that makes most women bring their entire wardrobe.

Here’s how you can pack lightly without breaking a sweat…

First, consider the weight and size of the bag itself. Leave behind bag with wheels because they weigh extra pounds more. Just opt for the light one which has enough pockets and compartments to help keep you organized.

You need not pack that much. Determine what and how much stuff you really need to take with you to the beach. Think about what you’ll be doing and needing on your trip day by day. A helpful way is to make a list of the things you would like to bring. Ask yourself if you really will use each item.  As you write what you really need, you will realize what you don’t need. Then try to strip away those that are not necessary. This ensures that nothing essential is overlooked and nothing unnecessary is packed.


A beach trip needs far less clothes than what is in your list.  It’s all about choosing the right clothing pieces to fit the needs of your trip. Choose the right clothes that correspond to the weather. Pack enough clothing to stay cool. The lighter clothing you have, the better. Of course, get rid of the pants and just wear shorts and take more short-sleeve or sleeveless tops. Avoid clothing that weighs more and choose the quick-drying one.

For footwear, leave those bulky shoes at home and bring slippers or sandals. Waterproof, plastic or rubber ones are best. They are lighter and less bulky.

Also, don’t forget to pack other essentials needed for your beach vacation. When heading out into the sunshine, give your skin extra protection by using sunscreen; and sunglasses and hats to protect your face from harmful rays. You can’t afford to leave these items
