September was a really outstanding month for me.  I literally spent the whole 30 days indoors. I went out just like thrice. My couch potato game is a 10. Most of the days followed the basic routine of waking up late, eating, fiddling with my phone, sometimes reading, sleeping very late and like that. Nevertheless, God was (is) still God throughout and I'm sharing my September lessons in the taking stock format.

Learning - That sometimes, seeking for the opinion/approval of people is like giving them a cutlass to cut you with.

Hoping - That I make the right choices as regards everything

Wanting - To change my blog theme. I've been eyeing some really cute ones on Etsy.

Wishing - That I actually bought one of the cute themes when I saw them and dollar exchange rate wasn't this high. Sigh, no such thing as perfect timing guys. Do what you have to do.

Praying - That Nigeria gets better.

Reading - Many things at a time with very little concentration because I basically spent the whole month on my phone surfing the net.

Wondering - Why network is this terrible in my room. Like the other night, I literally spent 30mins trying to publish this POST

Thankful - For my blogging journey thus far.

Proud - Of myself for finally making somewhat perfect pancakes for about 5 consecutive times. It used to be on and off thingy whenever I summon courage to do it but I can confidently say you'd score me a 7 and above if you eat it. And oh, I learnt lessons from my pancake failures and I'm going to share it very soon!

Excited - That I passed a certain milestone with my pageviews that I didn't even think would be attainable this year talkless of within a month when I made the decision!

Appreciating - Every single person that visits my blog and reads my post.  Thank you. Gracias. Merci. Grazie

Amazed - By the fact that I finally joined Instagram. It's a big deal for me because I never planned to. Reasons for this are enough for a blog post I'm telling you but before then, you can follow me HERE

Needing - All the motivation there is to read aggressively. So many things to read.

Trying - To consciously CHOOSE POSITIVITY

Annoyed - That my first class upon resumption is by 8am.

Saying - A very big THANKS to you for reading this post to the end and also for leaving me a comment (Well, that's in advance).

This taking stock format is really cool and I might as well use it again and also try to incorporate it into posts other than monthly recaps. I think it makes reading easier.

What do you think about it?

I'm back to school and even though I have mixed feelings about it I'm extremely happy that I just might reduce/stop MY SKINCARE MISTAKES

Any special thing you're anticipating in October?

What lessons did you learn in September?

I'd love to hear from you. Please leave me your thoughts.

Have a pleasant October. Best wishes. xxx

P. S - You can read my other monthly recap HERE 


  1. Its going to be great in October.. I don't even know what I am expecting seriously, I just want to be happy with my job in the office and get more money to buy that car I am hoping for...loooool..

    And for the network issue, I feel same way while blogging.. It could be so annoying at times.

    Wishing every well in October.

    1. Aww, that sounds nice
      and God would provide
      more money.

  2. Well, something i didn't really expect happened last month, but I thank God everything went well.

    Not expecting much too this month, i m back to school also and this month would be tedious.
    Am already having extension class first week of resumption

    1. Lool, we're both
      back to school
      mehn and the
      extension classes.
      Thanks for reading

  3. The network thing also happens to me. It really pisses me off. So frustrating!

    October is going to be hectic for me. In September, I learnt to just go with the flow. Life's running so fast so we have to learn to soar. Or something deep like that, you get?

    1. Exams yeah, you'd
      be fine. Yup, I
      get your point.
      More like we
      shouldn't be
      satisfied with
      the status quo.

  5. Great lessons and achievement from you. Kudos. Yeah i did achieve quite alot gradually living in my dream world. My blog wore a new look and i got a new drive to blogging. That, to me is the highlight.

    1. I noticed the new
      look and I love
      love it. That's
      more than enough

  6. Thank God for such wonderful life lessons. September was also a month of new beginnings for me and I'm entering October with a spring in my steps.

    1. New beginnings.
      Higher heights.

  7. Go for the Etsy theme! I love cute blog themes. Thank God for all you learned in September. I learned is that comfort can be detrimental to success. You need to stretch and keep reaching for the best. Have an awesome new month, dear!

    P.S. I read how you mentioned me in your interview. Thanks for the honour!

    1. I really want to go
      for it but exchange
      rate isn't smiling.
      Hopefully before the
      end of this year.
      I agree with you, complacency isn't
      Aww, you read it.
      You're welcome πŸ’•

  8. October means school is starting in a bit too, and that's rather exciting and nerve-racking all at once
    And it means two more months and 2016 is over -- where did all the time run off to?

    1. I knowww right!?
      Nobody knows
      where it's running
      to. Have fun in school!

  9. Welcome to Instagram and I enjoyed reading this! You should do it more. Congrats on milestone page views. Go for the theme! I love switching things up. And perfect pancakes is definitely something to be proud of! Have a great month darling. || Follow me on Bloglovin'!

    I love the taking stock format. Big congrats on your pageviews milestone.
    September has taught me a lot of lessons, one of which is learning how to relax, basically doing things at my own pace and also spend less. I do hope October is a lot better than September.
    P.s- I saw your comment on Cassie blog, I do hope you receive your email bearing good news..

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. πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

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…
