Yaay! Let's get it started!

For some days now, I've been racking my brain on what a first blog post should look like. It's a personal blog, a freestyle thing and all that but still, I kept racking my brain.
I finally decided to just pick up my pen and write whatever comes to me.
So, looking around me, I can't find anything to inspire a write-up. I picked up a souvenir from a company and their Mission Statement reads "We commit ourselves to people over things" and as I was about to question it, I remembered a message I once listened to. I ruminated on it and there and then, I decided it was worth sharing.
I can't recollect the topic of the message but I do remember some part of it. The two major points I can remember are "You don't stumble into your future, you create it." and "Be person oriented not things oriented". Deep I must say.
I wish I still have the message but life happened so I don't. I'm just going to write down the way I interpreted it to myself and how I feel almost everyone can relate.
We all have that dream asset; cars, positions, apartments and the likes. Why not let all these chase you and not the other way round? For example, you work in a multimillionaire company and there's this position everyone 'longthroats' for including you. Why don't you put that position aside first and work on yourself. Work towards having all the requirements expected of whoever is to occupy that office. Before long, the Board of directors or whoever is in charge will notice you even before you voice out your interest.
Work on yourself, do the right things and it'll only be natural that you possess the latest car and you live in an area that houses the creme de la creme of the society.

Let's endeavour not to be slaves to materials but rather be their masters. The speaker used himself as an example when he said he was just doing his own thing ; speaking, touching lives and all that when fame came after him. He said if his main objective had been just to make money, he'd have given up way too early. Of course, he wanted to make money but his love for what he was doing was greater than that of money so giving up wasn't an option.
Ugh, it's really been long I listened to the message and it would have been way better if I could quote some of the speaker's salient points. Nevertheless, I know someone reading this gets the message I'm trying to pass across.
Okay, so that's it! My first blog post. I'll like to know what you feel about the whole person and things oriented thingy. Your comment means a lot to me. Thanks. xxx.

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.
