I am worried and scared.
I see news about Boko Haram and I scroll past.
I have been thoroughly desensitized.
This horror seems to be our new "normal".
This really scares me.
We will keep moving and hope this menace ends soon.

|So so fine, isn't he?|
Lets just random, shall we? Good.
Demola Adedoyin (Aderopo in the October 1 movie) has chased John Dumelo out of my heart. I am in total, absolute and complete lust *swoons*
Sisiyemmie, Erniesha and all you married peeps, please honest question. Does the D get boring after a while? Like, you'll be looking at it and would not want to hop on it? I'm asking for a friend's friend please. Thanks.
Those of you with BBM, have you ever purchased those animated BB stickers? BBM stays advertising, and it annoys me because I'll NEVER buy and I don't know anyone who has either.
So once upon a time, there was a boy who made me some delish spaghetti. He was named Pasta but he wasn't all about pasta alone. Veggies, porridge, yummy beans; this boy could throw down in the kitchen. See en, there's just something about a man owning your kitchen and cooking in it. You try to help and they oh so gently remove your hands and tell you to just watch and enjoy *fluttering lashes* I know my yams were pounded a while back and spaghetti has now been cooked. And in the voice of Original Mgbeke, that's all she said.
In trying to sound like a wise person, I have one advice for you: Trying to fit a round peg into a square hole is really a futile effort. If it doesn't fit, don't force it. *tweaks wisdom hat and adjusts glasses*
So I got a UK size 6 dress and I'm sad because it fits. I thought I was a size 8 but apparently, the image of myself in my head is somewhat distorted. Help! I don't want to disappear! I intend to do some damage this Xmas though. Size 12 coming soon (Please don't rain on my parade, teinks)
I'm loving the Igbo Language. I used to think Igbo was such a "struggle" Language to learn, but for some reason, I'm loving it. Maybe I'll end up with an Igbo boo *shines teeth* I've learned a lot lately. Bikonu send your fine brothers, cousins, uncles or even fathers this way hehe. Coy'm, My sweet step daughter or sister in-law to be (feel free to choose), I see you. All these my Igbo cannot waste.
Another advice: Don't be so focused on your bucket list that you forget to enjoy the here and now. Enjoy the being. Not everything on your list is supposed to be checked off. *removes glasses and cleans it*
So I finally opened an Instagram account here Yay me! Sting aka Nigerian Scorpio said my IG account is ojoro. lmaoo I wanted to see what y'all look like na and yes, it is ojoro. Bite me lmaooo. Duru has been on my case to put up pictures too so maybe I will give you something asides the side of my face soon. ;) #FingersCrossed.
I'm sorry for being away for so long. God knows my life has not been truly mine lately. Thanks for the mails, direct messages and checkups. Love you guys. You have no idea how amazing it feels to be missed. Priceless I tell you.
I'm so thankful for the new friends I made and the old ones that still put up with my crazy, I love you guys. I know it's the season for giving but I'm too
lazy swamped to think of a proper
giveaway, so I thought the first 10 people to comment on this post will get a
500 recharge voucher. Please drop your email with your comments. A proper
giveaway will be postponed till next year. Thanks lovelies.
Here's wishing you the most amazeballs Christmas. Kisses
I'll be back
Friday, 24 October 2014
YASS!!She's truly back. I just read her lastest post and I was laughing so hard. For those of you who don't know her, you've missed. She's on a mini-hiatus but she is sorta kinda back. Head on over to read her lastest post here.
I think this is my shortest post.

I got tagged by Roselyn K for the Sunshine award earlier this year, which requires 10 random information about me and nominating 10 other bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” (I know I should be kicking myself for responding to this late) I also got tagged by Ugo, Duru, and Damilola for the 20s. I decided to do these together. *stares at feet* This way, I get to tell you 25 random things. How's that for a deal? Good right? I thought so too. It's a little hard not repeating stuff though, because I've talked about myself a lot on this blog, I mean, I've been blogging since 2011! Anyway, you can see here, here, here ,here and here. I just read one of those old posts and I can't stop laughing. I sure have come a long way. Enough preamble. Lets get to it.
1. I love to read. A lot! I haven't had much time for this, but an amazing man got me a Kindle Paperwhite 3g for my birthday and I've been doing more reading lately. Best gift ever... next to August Alsina of course. #Don'tAsk I should probably do a post on my birthday gifts :D
2. I have learned that what some people say and what they mean are two different things. Circumstances change, so, I don't trust words so much. Words are cheap. Don't tell me, show me.
3. I'm an amazing listener. I talk a lot. Scratch that, I'm a certified chatterbox and because of this, people assume I don't listen much. You'll be shocked at the amount of things I can remember.
4. I still don't like numbers. Put it into words and I'm game. I will work with numbers if I have to though.
5. Most of you know I laugh a lot. What you don't know is, even when something annoys me, is unbelievable or downright ridiculous, i could laugh. So when I laugh at you, be very afraid except of course you know, you're funny :D
6. I really love words. I think I've mentioned this before somewhere. I hardly use them though. One of the first rules of the thumb in Communication is: Kiss: Keep It Short and Simple.
7. I was with my sister and I legit didn't
steal take anything from her. I actually saw some perfumes and I
made her choose the one to give me. That doesn't sound like me at all. I
usually would have just taken what I wanted and sent her a message on my way
home about my new acquisition so she doesn't bother looking for it. I think someone
has tampered with my DNA 0_0
8. I have a thing for perfumes.
9. I can be very sentimental about gifts. Just like Dobby, I can hoard stuff that mean a lot to me. I shocked a friend this year with gifts she gave me in 2001.
10. There's a certain je ne sais quoi about guys with ass *drools*
11. I love bright colours. Yellow is such a yummy one. I think of myself as a rainbow.
12. I've got small feet, which are both a blessing (my sisters can't steal my shoes, yay!) and a curse (because I can't steal theirs either!)
13. I always use whatever new stuff I get immediately. Like, if I get a new dress today, best believe I'm wearing it tomorrow. If I get a new pair of earrings today, I'm removing the ones I'm wearing and switching immediately. Because. Death happens. (HD, stay away from this one)
14. I think I'm the only person left who isn't on Instagram. Took me forever to get on Twitter too. Let's see how much longer I can hold out for.
15. I have recently become a midnight cereal eater. Because, hunger and weight gain Lol.
16. I don't like drinking water. I know this isn't healthy, but juice is my thing. Berryblast to be exact.
17. I am hardly ever shy. I can seriously talk to anyone, anywhere *shrug*
18. I wish I could eat more than I currently do. This is a struggle. Stay away from this Coy.
19. I'm very spontaneous, but I can also be annoyingly sensible. I think spontaneity is my default mode, but growing up is instilling the "sensible".
20. I choose my battles. I don't blow up at every turn. I don't waste my energy like that.
21. I'm a bundle of contradictions. Can you tell already? Lool
22. I love my Family and I won't trade them for anything. I mean, I want to kill my brother, half the time! #iKid...Not! But I would not trade any one of them for the world.
23. I currently have 6 nieces. 2 from each sibling :D
24. I am a very determined person. If I say I'll do something, you best believe I will.
25. I'm not on the fence about God. You know periods where you are stuck and something gives? I've had several of those. What can I say. I'm a God-Girl, that's who I be, from the top of my head to the toes of my feet. I can't deny it, wouldn't even try. I'm Your girl in the Crazy world... (_Jamie Grace's God girl)
I hereby tag: T.Notes, TLG, Real8, Nazzy, Ayo of OnePlusTheOne, Gatlinmay9, Chantel, Abiola, Ms Cookie, Sykik and Cassandra.
Feel free to tag yourselves if you haven't done this already and please send me a link so I can go snooping on yours. In the meantime, please share one random thing in your comment. Thanks for reading.
I'll be back...soonKisses

Nothing but clothes in my closet people lol. I'm coming out of my hiatus. This coming out is courtesy Ugo and the cute guy called Duru. He practically dragged me out of this hiatus. He coaxed, pleaded, begged and damn near threatened hell and brimstone for me to blog. You really don't want to get on his bad side. How have y'all been? I truly have missed this place and everyone. Thanks so much for looking out for me guys. You mean the world. So my birthday came around. Thanks for all the birthday wishes and gifts. I got the BESTEST gifts #NoKidding. This girl is aging like fine wine (if I may say so myself). Y'all didn't think I was a spring chicken did you? This child is about ready to start life. They say life begins at 40. Apparently I'm currently an egg, not even larvae yet, not to mention pupa. Anyways, I know I owe you plenty gist. Let's get it started.
First things first, please peep at August Alsina. He is cute, no? I mean, he's 22 (yea, I've upgraded from Adam & finally embracing cougarism) and I don't even like tattoos but him, I'll most definitely do. I even named some precious *cough* erm possession after him (Stay away from this Coy and HD). August is my new favourite name #Don'tAsk
SideNote: Honeydame can danceeeeee!

Do you know how amazing it feels to be totally down and have a friend call you up and ask how're you're doing. You say fine and they say, I know you're not. That's why I'm asking pointedly so out with it. To have someone that sees, knows, gets and listens to you. No lies, no pretense, no facade or charade. Just honesty and genuine care. #Amazeballs #LoveLikeALoveSong #BeautifulLifeLovelyFriends #AlwaysAndForever #YouKnowYourselves
Life has been happening as usual; kicking my ass in places and rocking me in others. The good, the bad and the absolutely awesome *grin* Life is sweet people. You just need to stick out your tongue and taste it like sugar.
So I had a car-race romance lol. You'll say I've come again. I swear, I don't know why these things happen to me. So there's this guy who interns at my office whom I drop home because he stays very close to mine. We were on our way home and I was yakking off as usual when I sped past a T junction and the intern called my attention to an SUV driver that was staring in our direction. I peeped, the car didn't look familiar so I turned away and resumed yakking. I sped up and Guy did same. I slowed & he did same. I sped up again and he did same, parked his ride and flagged me down. Me kwa, I didn't wait o. I sped up and guy man followed suit. He stopped a couple more times and shinned teeth. Mo daran! I was initially worried I mean, I thought my car was smoking or something. I would have panicked if I was alone. He was however alone in his ride plus the road was a sorta busy one. I eventually parked behind his car and guy came down; face was not familiar and he asked for my number. He even had the audacity to ask if intern was my boyfriend. I should have said "Yea, I like 'em younger. Better luck next time" but I didn't. Anyways, that's the end of this gist. Don't ask for follow up, you hear? You hear? Good.
Earlier in the year, I had issues making up my mind about what phone I was going to buy. I desperately needed one & of course used to mention it a lot so my mama decided to surprise me with a phone. Good, right? You see, she owns a store. She came home one day and told me some actors came around and used her store for a movie. As I was rummaging in her bag, found a Galaxy S4 and screamed. I thought it was a gift for using her store (in my dreams ba) then I did a double take. It was Samsung Galexy not a Galaxy and my jaw and excitement dropped to my feet. My mom, who was obviously still excited asked if I had seen the gift. I wanted to cry. She came and effusively started talking about how amazing the phone was. She even said it had "everything". The phone legit didn't have nada. Rien. Zilch. Just bluetooth. Oh wait, it was touch screen #FML
Me: What exactly do you mean by everything?
Mom: Everything now. Just check well. That was what the "oyinbo" said.
Me: What Oyinbo? Oyinbos came to market the phones? Caucasians? Ko possible (not possible).
Mom: No o. I think they were Chinese.
Me: *puts-my-head-in-both-hands-falls-flat-on-my-face dead!*
I had to tell her the phone was a fake then she demanded I refund her money! Ngwanu! How?
See en, I was just weak. I sha jejely gave the phone to her and told her to return it.
So Mr. indecent proposal has finally been laid to rest hopefully. I can't give too much details because he might find this blog (although I doubt it) but let me just say he was very inappropriate. Asking for my bra size, wanting to know if I have tasted sperm before, "mistakenly" brushing my boobs, getting into my personal space, coming into my office without telling beforehand on a Monday morning!!! Guy is all kinds of inappropriate, it's mind boggling! Anyways, I've shut that plane down.
So gist overload. Are y'all still mad at me for staying away for too long? No? I thought so. Thanks for forgiving my ikebe. Sharouts & congratulations to New bride Sisiyemmie and new dad 9jas Great. Stay Ebola free people. Kisses.
P.S: My natural hair sisters, has anyone living in Nigeria tried this Max Hydration Method?
P.P.S: Please kiss and hug SingleNigerian whenever you see him. Just do it.
P.P.P.S: Ugo Ukam, your tag is coming next.
P.P.P.P.S: Atoskin please go and update :p
P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S: I miss Sting's sting :(
P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S: NuttyJ, made your choice yet?

This is a guest post. I figured it would help if you, like me, find it tasking to make a choice when it comes to phones. I remember my mom bought me a Samsung Galexy (Yes, Galexy. This is not a typo *tears*) S4 phone earlier in the year. I wanted to cry. I'll talk about it in my next post. I'll even post pictures loool. Enjoy the post.
Considering what give the men in your life as a gift? If you're thinking ties, handkerchiefs and shirts boring, why not go for gold and give him a smartphone if you can afford it? You know he deserves it. But before you run off to your nearest store, take time to review your options. Mobile phones have come a long way over the years and with manufacturers constantly inventing new features, the choice of which phone to purchase can be a bit confusing. Here are a few things to consider before buying a smartphone.
Android, iOS and Windows Phone seem to be the most popular options. You can make your choice of operating system based on what's most important to you, or in this case, your the recipient - versatility, user-friendliness, security and customization.
In this day and age of selfie, there is a lot to consider. While most smartphones come equipped with cameras capable of taking 8 megapixel pictures, these days, also take account of resolution, optical zoom, shutter speed, ISO and other capturing settings and features.
When it comes to physical appearance, more and more people lean towards the thin and sleek design. Don't just consider the form factor, though, think about the screen size, weight, keyboard, Retina display, and portability.
It's important to consider the phone's compatibility to apps. Apps are programs that perform different functions. Almost all smartphones have the ability to support applications. Health monitor, GPS device, scanner, TV and video apps, digital wallet, and mobile hotspot are just some of the popular ones you can install on your smartphone.
Smartphones, with all the amazing things you can do with it, are like mini computers. Of course, you'd want to get one with a long battery life. But you might also want to consider the option of replacing the battery when you're unable to charge up. Some phones have built-in batteries that you can't remove for example. So if you require a lot more power, go with one that has a replaceable battery.
Most smartphones carry an option of 2GB to 64GB built-in memory. If you think you would need more storage space, consider buying a phone that supports memory cards.
Since smartphones are portable gadgets, you should take connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Mobile hotspot) into consideration.
Most major phone companies now offer smartphone plans that fit every budget. There are a wide variety of models and features to choose from. But I guess what it will all come down to is the price you are willing to pay. You don't want to spend a lot but you don't want to miss out on important features for a small price difference either. It's best to take the time to research and consider all your options so you can make an informed decision.
