Rules of Engagement

When I think of Shirley Bassey I recall two iconic songs which had peculiar titles: 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds are Forever'. But whilst men probably reminisce about the callous adventures of a womanizing, gadget-sporting, trigger-happy spy with a licence to kill, women are reading between the lines (And if you still haven't had your Eureka! Moment at this point then you are obviously a tom-boy). Gold = Ring = Finger. Similarly Diamonds are…self-explanatory.

Spotlight: Cape Verde

West Africa is not usually your first choice honeymoon hotspot, but just off the coast of Senegal lies beautiful Cape Verde (Green Cape). A selection of tiny islands located on an archipelago off the Western coast of Africa. Cape Verde is an all round honeymoon spot with a difference. There are lots of things to interest the traveller, from spectacular mountain scenery to beautiful deserted beaches. Every Island has its own distinct character; from the lush and lively Santiago and the sandy and salty Sal, to the volcanic Sao Nicolau and diving paradise of Boa Vista.

Going Green

Oscar De La Renta Brushstrok Print Tank Dress

Our colour if the month is Green. Yippee!

Sugar! Weddings is not only proudly Nigerian but more importantly, eco-friendly; a major reason we’re not a print publication.

So arise o compatriots hug bunnies and celebrate all shades of green, from Mint to Algae and everything in between (but maybe not Fluorescent because that is a tricky one).

Kissing Impossible

For the aspiring grooms reading this article, your mission (if you choose to accept it) is to kiss the bride - code name Operation KTB. Brides - yours is by far simpler - 1) Stand still and allow the groom to advance towards you. 2) Start to close your eyes as he gets closer (you know it's not polite to stare). And 3) For God's sake cooperate with him by raising your chin up so he gets a better angle to plant the kiss, unless of course he's as tall as Danny Devito (in which case I strongly recommend that you lift him up and complete the mission yourself!)
