Valentine's Day 2018 || What I'd Be Up To

My favorite thing about Valentine's day has to be the display of red outfits. I think red looks good on virtually everybody. There's just something hot and spicy about the colour that brings out everyone's extra beauty. Other than that, I've never been a fan of the day's celebration. I was going to say I don't even believe in it but then maybe my cupid hasn't found me yet so I wouldn't want to make hasty conclusions. LOL. I was chatting with a friend about Valentine's day and I realized that this day has never really meant anything to me, well apart from being exactly a month to my date of birth.

Therefore, because I'm tired of the everyday "What are you doing?" and "Where are you going on Valentine's day?" questions, I've decided to just answer it all here. What a genius way to get more people to read my blog. Hehe.
So, on February 14th, I'd be

  • Travelling. On a road trip to Ghana or to one of the Eastern states in Nigeria. Yet to decide on which it'd be. Exploring and learning and relaxing and everything in between. 
  • Eating lots of chocolates and cakes - empty calories, but who cares - while trying to not smear my pretty Valentine's day inspired dress. 
  • Writing love notes and hoping the recipient enjoys them enough to give me a perfect feedback. 
  • Going about performing acts of philanthropy.

I think I have a pretty good drawn out plan for someone celebrating Valentine's day for the very first time. I know you're probably wondering how all of these activities would be possible in just 24hours. Well it is, because that's literally my daily routine fine-tuned into a romantic manner as I'd actually be
  • Travelling and Exploring. Only it's through the pages of a book. Hahaha 
  • Writing lots of notes in my school's Industrial Training logbook while hoping the recipient (my supervisor) gives me an A grade.  
  • Eating not exactly chocolates and cakes but definitely lots of pastry. 
  • Being a philanthropist in my own right by showing love to the most random persons. This should be everyday but I'd putting in extra effort. 
  • Noticing and laughing at all the weird red and white outfits my Ibadan people would be rocking. By the way, my most embarrassing Valentine related moment was 4 years ago when I got to class putting on a PINK and white tee that everyone in class decided to see as red because it was February 14. I went back to my hostel to change. I wasn't ready for all the bants and teasing. 
    Because it's only right that I put up a picture of me in red. 😂

I'm typing this post whilst feeling really sleepy not just to entertain you but also to let you know you can always put a twist into your almost mundane activities (if you have nothing planned) to make this day special for yourself and those around you.
Here's wishing you a whole lot of LOVE and LIGHT.

  • Do you believe in Valentine's day celebration? 
  • Ever had an awkward moment on this day just like I do? 
  • Where would you be spending Val's day? What plans do you have? 
  • What do you think about putting on red and white? Cool or not? 

I always want to hear from you. Kindly leave me thoughts. XXX

  3. I'm sort of the same as you, I'm not too fussed about it. If I had a boyfriend I suppose I would be saying a different thing though lol. I do like seeing what other people get up to. Love that your red dress! xx

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!

4 Cliché (Not so Cliché) Lessons From A Short Trip.

I have a love hate relationship with a lot of things and situations such as with skirts as I wrote about in this POST. I have a love hate relationship with traveling. I absolutely love to see new places, learn new things and all that but I hate the long distance that has to be traveled as a time always comes during every journey that I get claustrophobic and then there's always one or two accident scenes on the road. It's not always pretty. You'd probably think I'm talking about a 7 hours journey but No. Laugh all you want but a 3hours with almost 30 minutes journey inspired this post while I was looking out of the window at nothing in particular. I realized some lessons the journey thought me and though cliché, I thought to share it still on the blog as this act would make the lessons stick and also to reach out to someone who might need this.
