HAPPY NEWYEAR 2017



Hello peoples! Happy New Year. Wishing you guys a fantastic 2017. I have a really good feeling about this year. I pray we are granted favour in everything we lay our hands on this year and all the lines fall for us in pleasant places.

I hope we’ve all set our goals, made vision boards and we’re steadily working towards achieving them. If you haven’t, that’s totally alright. Here’s a link to help you start. It has 40 sites to learn something new. This is the year to DO things.

I’m almost done with my second book of the year so I guess I’m not doing so badly in the reading department. I can’t believe I’m just reading The Alchemist. I have heard so much about it and I have not been disappointed so far. So yea, check it out if you haven’t.

I can’t believe January is over! Stop the clock!

Let’s keep slaying and winning sweeties.

I’ll be back xoxo

P.S: I miss Obama already and I have stopped seeking Nigerian news. I’m on Twitter so news filter thru eventually but I have stopped actively seeking news. I like my peace of mind.

Taking stock of 2016





It's looking like this harmattan is blessing my skin. My skin is popping. The skin of my face is all yummy like caramel. You can def lick it. Who wants to try loool. I'm so ready for 2017. I'm super duper excited *inserts the butterfly dance step*

First things first, I lost my entire bloglist so now I only have those I followed via friend-connect. Please leave me your blog links in the comment section so I can recoup. I'm so pained cos it's difficult keep track of awesome blogs. Thank you.

So I'm taking stock of 2016. I got this idea from Cassie Daves. I really like it. Check out her blog here. I'm not going to bore you with the details so I'll keep it short and simple (KISS). 

Knowing and Realizing: That the more I know, the more I need to know. Gosh! Nobody warned me about this! Adulthood is hard yo! Major scam. I love the learning though. I have been discovering more things about myself, other people and the world. 2016 was an amazing year for reality checks. People will always be human. I am human and fallible too. Know people and accept them for who they are. The best thing I did for myself was not really have expectations from people. People will always be people. They'll be amazing at times and they'll be disappointing at times and that's okay. Even family and friends will disappoint you sometimes, but you'll move past it.
Reading: I had to read a lot this year. It doesn't help that I read for pleasure too. I was able to read some amazing and funny books this year. I found a list on Mackenzie's blog here and I have not been disappointed yet.  Jojo Moyes's Me Before You (read the book before you judge the movie please) and After you, The Rosie project and the Rosie Effect, The Secret (this you should read again and again), Gary Chapman's The Five Love Languages (I can't believe it took me this long to read it) etc. Hoping to read even more in 2017.
Needing: Purposeful networking is something that I need to actively engage in. I can be horrible at following up on friendships. I seriously need to do better.
Eating: I have consciously started eating better. I drink more water (I can't believe my love for Berryblast is over) and eat more fruits. I think I've gained a little bit of weight too. Fingers crossed on sticking with this.
Creating: A clear and workable plan to effectively reach some of my goals.
Making: I think I made a little more impact. Not as much as I would like, but well, #WeMove.
Wasting: I need to stop wasting time and letting opportunities go. Procrastination is the devil, you guys. I need to learn to live more in the moment.
Slacking Off: I really slacked off on my blog this year. I felt so bad, like a mom that abandoned her baby. I'm definitely doing better in 2017. I also slacked a little on my reading goals, but I at least read a book a month.

I have decided to make a thankful journal for those times when I get overwhelmed. I tend to forget how far I have come/achieved sometimes and that is such a joy-stealer. So when these periods come, I can just flip through and be reminded of how totally blessed I am. I'm not even kidding, I think I'm God's Special Project and I cannot be more grateful. I hope to take more risks next year. I'm weirdly excited for 2017. It's definitely going to be a year of  adventure.

Wishing you all the best of 2017.

Kisses xoxo
See you next year

You Triieeeddd It


So you remember how I said I've basically been mad busy, yeah? Well, when  need to breathe, I overdose on some shows. Well The real is one of them. The hosts of the show are everything. Those girls are the realest with very different personalities, just like Night and Day! They laugh, they cry and talk about Everything! Tamera is so sweet, Adrienne is the sexy one, Loni is so funny and Jeanie Mai is the fashionista with mom-tales for dayyyss! I was bummed when Tamar Braxton got the boot, but I guess it is what it is. I mean, I get that she can be a little razz but I thought razz is the new cool (ask Jenifa fans). Anyway, I miss all her catch phrases like: You trrriiieeed it! Won't he do it! Get your life! And the way she smacks her lips when talking? Too funny. She is definitely something.

Tamar's You Trrrieeed It

Now that I've loaded you with some juice, lets move on.

You know when you stumble on a show you detest, watch for a while, promise yourself "never again" then go back to over and over again? No? Y'all wana play that game?  Fine, it's just me then. I started watching the Jojo Fletcher season of Bachelorette and as much as I complained incessantly about this show, I didn't stop watching. My excuse for watching was my 2016 crush, Wells Adams even though I didn't stop watching after he was evicted. Oh the pain when he was evicted from the show. *sniff* I mean, have you seen Wells? Plus, he has dimples! How can my poor heart say "no"? How? I mean look at him



The show was so chaotic though. I will not even waste time on how dramatic and vile Hurricane Chad was on the show. Waste of breath really. I have already judged myself for watching so it's okay if you judge me too. I even saw Bachelors in Paradise where some of the evictees on Bachelors/Bachelorette from various seasons were put together. It was crazy. I even went as far as watching After Paradise. Yeah, colour me crazy. I really like the host of After Paradise, comedienne, Michelle Collins. She's so funny. Wells was the best part of this boring season and nope, I will not watch any more seasons. (Amen!)

En en, lets talk about a real problem I have. I started watching Greys Anatomy a long time ago, got bored after the plane crash that killed little Grey and McSteamy and stopped watching. Then I heard McDreamy died and wanted to have a fit so I went back to watching. Now I'm on season 13 and can't seem to stop. Epp me please. Someone needs to stop me. I need help honestly. I can't seem to help myself.

I sometimes binge-watch TV series too. Listen, anything that runs for 20mins max, is extremely silly, makes me laugh and snot is bae. I really like Life in Pieces. I don't mind Big Bang Theory (I'd like to meet a real Sheldon Cooper. He was my mental picture of Don TIllman in the Rosie Project and the Rosie Effect books). I was, however tricked into watching Banshee (side eyes @singlenigerian), Stranger Things (I really loved the kids in this), and The Night of. I'm enjoying Power though (I really love the theme song).

What are you guys watching?
Kisses xoxo
