Let's Marvin Gaye and get it on...

You've got the healing that i want. Just like they say it in the song, till the dawn, lets Marvin Gaye and get it on ...

This Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth feat. Meghan Trainor song has been giving me life. I just loveeet! So how have you all been. I'm fine. Life is happening as usual. More drama everyday; sometimes more than I can handle but er well. We already know drama follows me around so no biggie. I'm not sharing the latest episode in the series of my life that I have titled, Dear Lord, Why Me? Y'all not ready for it. (Honeydame, CoyIntrovert and SingleNigerian, please leave this one alone)

Nails on fleek :D
First things first, my nails are back!!! You think we're here to play? After everything I've been through this year, please I had to invoke all the powers that be to bless my nails and it happened.
When they ask if you got your nails fixed and it's all yours ...*moonwalks*

Second, are you people not honestly shopping on So you are and I have not earned anything through you? You people play too much. What do you think the banners up top and on the sides are for? Please click click click away and purchase. Use my link and make me some money please. This your baby girl needs to feed to keep body and soul together. I'm not thirsting after glass house yet but a nice house would do. Atilola, come and try Konga so you can compare with Jumia. Thanks in advance. And If I eventually buy my own glass house, I'll give y'all a room each too. You might need to share though. Maybe Atoskin can share with HD and we'll name that the Room of Hips or Hippy Room. See, even my joke is dry. This is not a joking stuvvv. Epp me plis. Epp me. I'm suvvring.

I guess we can all agree that I'm not dead. *Side eyes* TLG and Honeydame. My life is just going through some changes. You can follow @toinlicious for more of my deliciousness.

So to the real reason I'm back here. The wonderful Lola of Rose of Sharon tagged me in this Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award and I had to come out of hibernation. Thanks so much Lola. Lola is the lovely author of Twenty Nine. You can check out her other books on Okadabooks.

4.                  Nominate five blogs; Okay
5.                  Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer. Alright

1. What is your biggest pet peeve? I honestly don't know, it depends on where, when, who, what and how. I have a long list. From people who drive slow on the fast lane, to people who stay on your lane and refuse to move when the traffic light goes green because they are not exactly going your way but stupidly blocks you, to those who pick their nose and flick it. Biggest though? I don't know. If I like you, some of these things might not even bother me except that snot flick.

2. What does your last text message say? MO: Why were you calling me at 6:58am?

3. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and coke? Which do you prefer? I can't tell the difference and give me water. I can't believe my relationship with berryblast is over and I'm not even sad. What is this life? A rotten pot of beans I tell you.

5. Name one item on your bucket list. To live alone in another country

6. If you were another person, would you make friends with yourself? Hell yeah! Have you met me? You obviously haven't because if you have, you'll definitely know. I'm amazing. I know my vain is showing but I'm not tucking it in. I'm that fabulous and cute and nice and my heart? Too large for its own good. Let's not forget my smile too.

7. What is your secret weapon to lure the oppoiste sex, boyfriend, husband, potential? I'm not luring anybody abeg. Did you not read about My lover? I didn't even have to do nothing and he wanted to die on top the matter.

8. What do you want to know about the future? Did I eventually kill my brother or did he kill me? I need to know this. Oh wait, or what colour did I paint my 22milion naira house :D

9. What would you change about your experience in secondary school? Honestly, nothing. I had the best and most unserious time of my life there lol. Traumatising for my family especially my dad and my sister, Prim-not though, seeing as Prim-not was the model daughter hehehe

10. Scary movies or happy endings? Happy endings. I'm a sucker for them

I'm nominating:
This Lagos Girl (see, i told you i wasn't dead)
Lara (Can you put me in your luggage and take me traveling with you? I don't weigh much)
Atilola (All in good time babe, all in good time)

I've missed all you crazy people that make me laugh :)
First of all, Lets do some news rounds.
Yo! Sykik is a mom y'all!!! We have born Boy!! I'm making myself godmom! *shakes ikebe*
SisiYemmie is now a mommy too with a mini-Bobo. Congratulations guys *muah*
Honeydame is backk!!!! Ok, not really but she posted after one year so that should count for something, right?
SingleNigerian showed his face briefly but he's back in hibernation too.
My friendship, Unveiling Gold is back too...uhm, well partially. At least she's reading and leaving comments. Baby steps people.
I still miss Beautiful and her gists *sigh*
Sting is now a Doctor!!! Whooooooot!!! We need to pop something, yes? Let me go and complain to her about this headache sef :D
Atilola, You're the real MVP. Constantly blogging ain't beans.

HD's culinary skills is something that is receiving scant attention. For those skills, I could marry her. From Edikaikong *stomach rumbles* to Ogbono *more rumbles* to fried rice and chicken in some kind of delicious sauce, back to egusi or to the random pot of jollof that I drive all the way from work to her house to obtain, fadaludd needs to epp me! Can you tell that I shamelessly like food? I'm don't even currrrr! I honestly don't know how people are not falling over themselves for this hotness and her skills. Oh wait, I think they are lool. There's absolutely no harm in falling harder is all I'm saying. The girl can throw down in the kitchen!!!

So I went to Port-harcourt for the first time with HD!!! Yass! I also ate bole and spicy fish *relishes the memory* I think I had white soup too. Plus there is this child that I fell in love with since she was born. Her smile makes everything alright. I've had her as my lap top wallpaper since forever. I finally met her. Baby girl is just cuteness all round. Oh wait, they're are actually two of them. Too cute. I met 9jasGreat too. You can head on over here to read a brief recap. Oh, and Single Nigerian almost got us straight passes to hell for almost slapping a church usher (which I would not have minded much really loool) but that's story for another day.

Lately, there's been a something about babies and I. I'm not even sure I understand it anymore. First, I hung out with HD one time and during our meal, there was drama with a couple and their twin babies seating close to us. The boy twin would take one look at me and start giggling. I mean, I'll remove my face but once he caught my eyes again, the boy would break out into this huge grin. Every darn time! #NoKidding. It was so freaky. A while back too, I went for a friend's birthday party and this little baby girl munchkin decided I was her playmate and proceeded to freak everyone out because apparently, she usually does not play with strangers. Sigh. God, is this a sign? I haven't met my Alhaji yet so I don't know how I'm bringing one of these into the world. #NoTwinZone

My hair people! My hair! Atoskin, I'm sorry but this has to be said. God has shown his glory. My hair is long yo! Long! As in, my hair that was re-christened chicken scratch scanty is now long! Miracles happen people! By the way, I finally met Atoskin too! Hi Atoskin and her hips. I see you both!

So on to my nails. Here is what they used to look like. 

Lovely and things but brethren, I can't even show you the "after" picture because it is disgraceful. I maintain that HD stole them. Don't tell me noth'n. Plus, I never used to bite my nails. I still don't but you'd never believe me with the way they look at the moment. I remember wishing/tweeting my hair would grow as fast as my nails did at some point last year. To now add salt to injury, I tried to henna my hair. I wore gloves as prescribed but my hair didn't even show any hint of colour but guess what got dyed? My darn nails, that's what. *breathe Toin breathe*Anyways, God is finally showing mercy. My nails are not there yet but they are definitely on their way.

I don't want to overload this post but I just needed to tell y'all I'm breathing and in one piece. I have to give the loudest sharaouts to Duru! This guy is the most annoying but adorable aburo ever. He legit checks in on me almost every week. He drops comments on here too. If you don't believe, just check how many comments in dropped in my last post. And that's excluding the ones he told me not to upload on here. Rhapsody has also been amazing. She legit checked up on me most after Duru. You're both amazeballs *muah* To everyone who checked up on me, I love you guys with my whole growing butt. Forever family, you all are. To my new readers, I see y'all and I'll be stalking soon.
Oh, and I'm going to reply all of your comments on my last post. All 64 of them *sniff* You guys are the bestest. I tried my best to read you guys but lets play catch-up. What have I missed?

P.S: Is anyone watching So You Think You Can Dance? I love that show!!! This season is definitely different with the stage vs street thing going on. There's something about dance that makes my blood sing. It's just so groovy.

Oh lord!

Hey lovelies. Happy New Month and Happy Monday :D. First things first: I miss Beautiful! :( 
I want to start this week off right so I decided to be a good girl and shake something. Shout out to Lily for giving me the versatile blogger award. Thanks girl. I've done some before here, here, here and here and you can check up more stuff about me here and here too. Oh wow! I've revealed a lot about me though #VeteranBlogger lol. I also got interviewed by the the lovely Sophie. Check it out here.

There's plenty gist but let's start with the weird shall we? I think I got myself a stalker. Listen, I promise it's not my fault. Honest. You remember Adam from this post, right? Go catch up if you haven't read that. Apparently, Adam and McCrazy should be twins (although McCrazy is older than me). Anyway, let me gist you how we got here. I went to see a movie with a friend and met this dude, I've named him McCrazy. He seemed harmless enough. I know never to judge a book by its cover, I swear I know that but he seemed cool. We had good conversation so we swapped numbers. Dude calls me the following day, we talked for a bit and I mention I was going to have an extremely busy weekend. Fast forward to the weekend and McCrazy leaves me several missed calls. I was mildly pissed. I mean, I legit mentioned I was going to be busy so if you wanna act cute, SMS and ask if I'm not too stressed or something. Anyway, I eventually pick his call and he goes "why are you not picking my calls?" leleyi. Ko fe gboran lero. Until you buy me a phone and pay my phone bills, please do not ask me why I am not picking your calls. After that episode, he chilled and continued calling, occasionally leaving me a few missed calls. Cute ba? Not really.
So this fateful Monday morning, while I was chasing sleep from my eyes, I saw guy calling but I ignored it. Laaro kutu kutu ojo aje (early Monday morning). After calling a few times, I sent him a message that it was a little too early. He didn't stop. McCrazy legit gave me 87 missed calls at 7:05 and 9 more. Someone do the calculation for me please. On a Monday morning; all before 8am!! I kid you not.

Dude is crazy #Simples. I eventually sent an SMS telling him to lose my number asap. Dude had the nerve to ask if I meant that day because I was busy but I replied with: No. Forever and ever. Now let me state categorically that this happened in less than 2weeks after I met him. So I have jejely put his number on silent so when he calls, my phone doesn't ring out. Dude is either retarded or persistent, both very creepy and scary. Thank God I didn't mention where I work *shudder* So now, he calls almost every day and sends messages too. I will continue to ignore his calls because I do not want to end up being locked up in a wardrobe with calabash on my head forever or till a Soka-like discovery is made. Yes, Africa Magic Yoruba has messed with me.

This is all John Legend's fault. Dude is still messing around with Christy Teigan #BeefAlert. I mean look:
#HaterAlert #SomeoneHasToTakeTheBlame #EverylyCrush Urrggg, they're so hot for each other, it's disgusting. She apparently is rocking my bae's world *rolls eyes* breathe Toin, breathe.

Where was I even?
En en, as I was saying, so advise this not-so-confused girl in 2 paragraphs or less what should be done. You better not say pick his calls before I pray for all your baes to turn out like him! Eezz nor a funny something. Seriously though, do you know any number blocking app? I use a BB10. In the meantime, how was Valentime? I know how Cherry's went though lool.

This post was supposed to end with the previous paragraph but he called me with a strange number and used God to beg so I won't drop the call. I listened and the first thing dude said was can I believe he was sick for almost a month when I stopped picking his calls lmao. kill me now! I said, naa, he must have had malaria parasites in his body way before he met me & dropped the call. Ema womi n'iran o

So yea, I got me a stalker. "Love" found me but I'm running from this one #FML

HD, Coy and Parols, please stay away from commenting, teinks. You too Single Nigerian *major side eyes at y'all*

P.S: All the spammers that leave weird random messages like in the picture below make me laugh. I do not want anyone man/woman running after me or tied to me forever. I mean really? A McCrazy for life??? Biko, Mba.

I'll be back soon
