The Small Things!

Have you wanted anything so bad but for some reasons you couldn't get it? I definitely have and it isn't a very pleasant feeling. I mentioned in my last post HERE that the first few days of this year have been somewhat gloomy for me for way too many reasons I can't share right now. Also, I wanted something badly, there was no way I could get it and that's equal to lots of frustration if not controlled.
Last week, I actually prayed for a surprise not exactly with what I wanted in mind. I just wanted something different and pleasant to happen and I wanted this surprise before the end of that week. Towards the end of the week, I started wondering why I hadn't gotten any surprise and then I realised I actually did get a surprise. Maybe not exactly what I hoped it would be but finding a thousand naira note in a bag I'd totally forgotten about counts as some surprise.
2017 I heard is going to be a year of pleasant surprises according to men of God and I'm so claiming that! This is just a little note from me to you charging you not to get yourself worked up if you actually don't get that surprise you long for. There are actually 'small' surprises that if you end up seeing for what they really are, you'd never trade for anything in the world. Simply put, enjoy the little things because one day you might look back and realise they were the big things.
Here's a list of 'small' things in my head right now that I think should be really enjoyed and not seen as routine.

- The sound of water filling your bucket. I mentioned that HERE.

- Good Network : I really don't have to say much here.

- Bladder control : I know this is really really off but the other night I was too tired to go use the toilet before sleeping so I decided to just hold on till morning and while thinking about it, it occurred to me that it's something certain people would never try and I was doing it like it's nothing.

- Food Security : Nothing much. Just what nutritionists call the availability and affordability of sustainable food all year round. No, I'm not using y'all to read. Lol.

- Positive Thinking : Works wonders. If you're a very optimistic person, don't act like it's normal. It really isn't.

- No breakouts : I've not been the most religious person with my skincare routine but some miracle has been happening. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the way my hand has been going round my face without bumps while washing it.

These are just some of the small things I've personally been trying to enjoy more. There's a whole lot more like Ice-cream, Cupcakes, Bounty and the works. Okay, I kid. What little not so little thing(s) have you been enjoying? It can be a certain food, a piece of clothing, work of art, talent, a book you're currently reading,anything, anything. I'd love to know and hear from you. Kindly leave me your thoughts! xx

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…
