Birthday Talk and Pictures

I didn't plan to do a birthday post but I realized how much fun I had going through last year's Post mentally and I decided to just put together something and then, what better way to preserve pictures than on here?
I actually did have a fun day and I realized that the last time I celebrated my birthday at home was 9 years ago when I was in JSS2. I tweeted this and somehow someone was able to accurately get my age. I'm a small girl, lol. I'm not sure I look my age tho. My new age resolution is to finally stop hiding my age, so feel free to ask me. Hehehe
I had to leave home rushing and that's something I actually do not enjoy. I didn't expect to have as much fun as I did because I was expecting very few people as most of my friends stay in Lagos but at the end of the day, I realized that less is actually more. I had an amazing surprise guest too. I wish I could blog about how thrilled I was but I'd end up writing gibberish as much as I like to think I'm good with putting down my thoughts. Lol. So this, post is going to have a picture to words ratio of 70:30 because pictures speak a thousand words. Lol



It was totally a coincidence. Now people think I love red. Someone even said I moved my own Valentine's day forward 😄😄😄

Maybe I play too much. Lol 






I think I'm already exceeding the 70:30 ratio but it's allowed. Lol
I was literally forced to eat something. 


Guess who miraculously got these glasses. I was too happy! 





The shared laughter 💜💜💜

I definitely had fun and another highlight of the day was a gift from my brother. We just stopped by his school and he got me two lippies that managed to be exactly my fit and a eyeshadow palette I'd probably not use anytime soon but I appreciate nevertheless.
This is a rush post because the week was really busy and Fridays happen to be the busiest around here.

  7. Happy belated birthday dear. Red is definitely your colour plus you look like you had fun, and that's what counts. Less was definitely more for me too, I was too stressed to do " more" .lol. Thankfully, my colleagues got the hint. 😀.

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham

A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

Don't you just love how February flew by quickly? I definitely do and it came with lots of fun and of course, reading.. It feels just like yesterday when I published this POST  on the books I read in January and now it's time to write about the ones in February.
As there's only 28 days in February, I actually thought I'd be able to complete only 3 books but I'm typing this on the 26th day and I was able to go through 5 books! It however isn't in the numbers but in how each book eventually makes one a better person.

Enough digression, I initially planned to read mature romance novels because month of love but after the way the first book I read made me feel, I changed course immediately and went on to read other genres touching topics ranging from racism, colonialism to holocaust stories to a young adult medical fiction and even a children's storybook!

1. STILL ME - Jojo Moyes

If you've seen the movie 'Me Before You' or read the book, then you&#…

A Literary Conversation|MARCH

Unlike in February when I had a theme of books to read, in March, I did not. I just randomly compiled books I assumed I would enjoy and I enjoyed all 4.

RELATED: A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

1. THE KITE RUNNER - Khaled Hosseini
This book guys, would swallow you up. It's actually a very sad book and I expected this because I've read a book by the same author where I almost shed tears but this blew my imaginations. You know, at some point I just stopped mid sentence and wondered for the umpteenth time how one person could be so talented and make so many emotions come up with words! I actually felt like I've never read before. Lol.

PLOT: This book was set in Afghanistan and the protagonist is Amir who lost his mother immediately after she gave birth to him and who throughout his childhood tried hard to win his father's love while also having fun with his best friend, Hassan who is also the son of his father's servant. Amir watches Hassan being bullied and abuse…
