Life Lately

This morning I was pretty sure I wouldn't publish a post this week talk less of today simply because I don't feel like publishing any of the posts I have drafted but then, here I am. I guess I'm less of a planner and more of a spontaneous person and not exactly in between as I mentioned in this POST.  So basically, I've been writing exams for like forever and it's like it doesn't want to end. Here's what I've been up to..

One of those exam days 

1. A Gratitude Challenge  : Talked all about it in this post. Honestly, there are some days when I'm already shutting my eyes and I remember I haven't filled in my entry for the day, I just force my eyes open. It's very easy to forget really but I've been making a conscious effort not to miss it.

2. Exams - I have just one left. Yaay. I would have finished today but life happened and there was a public holiday on Monday so the exam for that day was shifted to next week. It's been fine and interesting too. I'm going to be a semi-finalist. I'm lowkey indifferent but grateful regardless.

3. Movies - I've been seeing more movies. It's really surprising because I used to be a proud member of the sleep gang when there's nothing to do. I've been using movies to just chill out. My new favourite movie is Real Steel. It has been Zootopia for some weeks now as I mentioned in this post where I shared My favourite movies of all time  but now Real Steel has my heart. It's so cool that I've already watched it like thrice. I guess it's because it's action. Pretty dope.

4. Thinking  - Yeah, about how much I want to be productive during the coming 3 months holiday and what I'd do to achieve that. Also, thinking about how to blog better. I'm also considering what to try this Christmas. Last year was Chocolate cake or so. This year, maybe Chicken pies!

5. Book Club - I finally joined one. A book per week. I want to widen my reading horizon. Knowledge is potential power. Hehe. I talked about some books I love in This post and in this

That's what I've been up to this last week. Not much but it's been fun. It doesn't feel like Christmas over here but then maybe it's expected.
What have you been up to?
Do you feel any Christmassy?
What are your plans for Christmas?
I'd like to hear from you. Kindly leave me your thoughts.

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…
