Choosing positivity

It's a new week! (This post should have gone up since last week but procrastination got me) I know virtually everyone dreads Monday for one reason or the other. For most, it's because another weekend has come to an end. For students like me, it's because of all the lectures ahead even though we were longing for it during the holidays.

Well as for me, this week is going to be the beginning of something different so I've been looking forward to it. The past two weeks have been annoyingly terrible for me or should I put it as terribly annoying? Either one, I'm sure you get my point. I think if you're not yet settled down after two weeks of resumption and you have a choking timetable, you'd agree with me that 'terribly annoying' describes it all. As if going through all that stress was not enough, I had this very negative attitude towards everything. Where it came from, I don't know. I was just whining and beating myself up over things I couldn't change. I discovered this during my usual 'me' time.
Yes, acknowledging that there's something wrong is the first step towards making things better. Over the weekend, I managed to assure myself everything would be alright and I promised myself to be positive, positive, positive and believe me, it worked.
Enough about the past! It's a new week and I'm excited. No matter how tight my schedule might be, I'm going to smile through it all and stop being negative. And so because it's a new beginning for me, I kicked off the week with a very corporate look.
Of course I took pictures and I know I'm supposed to upload them but network is not too good here .My apologies.
Did I mention that I've been having trouble getting myself to read? Well, all that went with last week. I went to the library and tried to get some things done. It's a start even though I wasn't really concentrating. If you read About Me,you'll see I mentioned that I love reading .
I'm happier and I'm glad my 'fighting' spirit is back.
What about you? Any personal battle you won recently? Please share and remember, "Don't just go through it. Grow through it".
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to put God first and watch everything else fall into place. xxx

  2. I don't dread Monday's normally except I have to do something I don't really want to then I'll dread any day of the week, like going to the hospital for example. A day before seeing the doctor, I can't even bring myself to sleep. Anyway I enjoyed reading this post...X

Life Diary||February

Happy New Month!


The third month of the year is here. And it's my birth month. Whoop. February was really sweet. Just 28 cute and fun days that went by pretty fast. I didn't take stock last month because I wanted a change but right now, I'm too lazy and busy at the same time (how contradictory) so I guess I'd just stick with it for now. Here it goes

Learning  - That nothing is actually perfect in reality. There's always some sort of covering up that happens - in every area.

Hoping - That I get some really pleasant surprises in this new month and that I make the most of the 31 days.

Wanting - A cute pink/purple Bible. All those ones with nice inscriptions by the side to make reading and understanding easier. Birthday gift idea!

Wishing - Someone would just hit me up and bless my bank account. Yes, just like that. 😒😒

Reading  - Currently, The Joys of Motherhood by the late Buchi Emecheta. Apparently almost everyone read this book in Secondary school so I'm a legal …

4 Style Bloggers: On basic styling tips for short dresses

This is a very special post because it's the closest I can get to having something fashion related on the blog. At least for now till I finally adjust to my new timetable.

I always think of short dresses/skirts as a 'heys' dress - heys being the legit sound Nigerian men use to catcall-. I'd define a 'heys' dress for you right about now. That dress that basically gets you heys both with the mouth and the eyes. I don't know which is worse by the way. I think it has to be the former. I mean, every other person around gets to hear the heys and add to your embarrassment.

What inspired this post? Well, obviously I was wearing a heys dress and even though I could have changed before leaving home, there was no time because well I finished late and I also wasn't ready to disrupt the 'timetable' for the week. . I also remembered this popular tweet about how girls would wear short dresses and start pulling it down like we didn't know it was short befo…

Wedding Day Thrills : 6 Things I Look Forward to & 3 That I Don't!

Hey guys, I've not posted in a while. Isn't it nice how that screams consistency? Lol jokes. I promise to do better. I was watching TV the other day and came across this 'It's my wedding' program that showcases all the activities couples go through in prep for their wedding day. I remember being insanely attracted to all the Ovation magazines with wedding pictures when I was way younger.  I was constantly devouring the pictures and you'd think I'd grow up to become a bridal consultant or something close. Life oh Life.
My mantra has always been 'I'm looking forward to my wedding day and not exactly to marriage' but who am I deceiving? Lol.
I think every girl has their wedding fantasy kept somewhere close for easy editing and all so I thought to share some of the reasons I'm looking forward to getting wedded.

•  Pre-wedding shoot : Some years back, this wouldn't have been on the list but with all these beautiful and also hilarious picture…
