Tracy Whitney : If Tomorrow Comes

If you've readabout me , you'd know I love to read almost anything. I'm not a bibliophile tho. I'm getting there. I just enjoy being lost in a book and tasking my brain trying to get the perfect picture the writer is trying to create.
I'll never understand why I quickly and deeply fall in love with fictional characters. All it just takes is for us to have something in common or for me to have gone through a similar struggle he/she is going through.
Sidney Sheldon's If Tomorrow Comes is a very special book to me because it's like the first ever novel I'd read on my phone. I used to be a sucker for hard copies but now, anything goes.

Introduction aside, let me go to the reason this post is up. Tracy Amazing Whitney! She's one of those characters you just find yourself rooting for whether they're doing good or bad. In this case, Tracy was a good girl turned bad. You know the 'When life gives you lemon, make lemonades' line? That's exactly what she did.
Her mother committed suicide due to the frustration she was facing from a Mafia boss. With genuine innocence after finding out, Tracy decided to threaten the Mafia guy with a gun. She mistakenly shot him as a means of self-defense when he tried to rape her. She was caught and unfortunately for her, both her lawyer and the judge were involved in the conspiracy so she was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment even though the Mafia guy didn't die and he also framed her for stealing a very expensive artwork from him.
In prison, she stood up for her rights and refused to be bullied by other ladies. Somehow, she got on the governor's special list and she was released. Life after imprisonment as she was to find out wasn't pleasant. Nobody wanted to have anything to do with an ex-convict.
Out of frustration, she decided to become a con artist. Silly as it might sound, it was at this point I really fell in love with her. Boy, I admire her strength and intelligence. So I'm going to be sharing few of her hilarious and mind blowing con operations.

1). She burgled into a house and when she realized she was about to get caught, she pretended to be a house guest by changing into a nightie and acting very much at home. She left enough flesh to confuse the policemen and of course, they left wanting to do anything to please her.
2). She won a bet against the two world best chess players by making them think they were playing against her when in actual fact, they were playing against each other.
3). She bought an emerald stone for $100,000 and then tricked the salesman into buying the same stone from her for $250,000. This one really burst my brain.
4). She stole an expensive jewellery belonging to an actress by placing them in a different briefcase and then swapping the briefcases when the train stopped knowing fully well that the police wouldn't search the victim's luggage.
5). She walked away with an expensive work of art from one of the world's most guarded museums by making it seem like a fake and causing them to sell it to her at a ridiculously cheap price.
6). She stole a box of diamonds by hiding inside one of the boxes to be transported on a plane and swapping them for fake ones during the flight. Good old Tracy Whitney is definitely not claustrophobic.

I just love the ingenious ways she used to solve seemingly impossible tasks. If you're a lover of all books thriller/suspense, then you should get this book. Just download it using this LINK and let me know what you feel about her yes?
Which of the 6 got to you the most? Read the book already? Share your thoughts about it please. Any other thriller/suspense book you think I should read? Kindly mention. xxx
Lots of love.||LLB.

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.
