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


  1. Well I think it's just cliche to wear red lool

  2. Well.. I haven't for once considered putting on red on Valentine's Day.. Never celebrated one...Im putting on blue on blue tomorrow 😁😀😂

    1. Blue on blue is absolutely rebellious. Hehe. I wore green. That's pretty close.. Or not?

  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

Life Update: 2018 Birthday Post

I was unsure about the idea of writing a birthday post this year because it's not very timely till I checked the posts of the last 2 years - 2016  and 2017 - and I realized they both went up on the 17th of March, 3 days after my birthday so why not continue the trend? Unlike the previous years, this was quite uneventful as I was in transit for some time, traveling to school to get stuff submitted and then rounding everything off pretty late so that I was unable to travel back home that same day. I had no extra clothing or toiletries so that was annoying but I pulled through nevertheless. I have a ritual of getting myself something but so far, I've not really seen what I'm interested in. A God sent person got me a book I've been looking to get my hands on for quite some time now and I was too happyyy! I'm definitely going to update this post with pictures of it later on. I'm really excited and looking forward to all what God has in store for me thi

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job. He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is

My NYSC Orientation Camp Experience in Lagos State

For someone who spent hours reading about the camp experience of other people, it would be super selfish of me not to pay it forward. There was literally no way I wouldn't write this post and so, here I am, doing just that. I'd try to keep it simple though, not like there's much to talk about. For those who aren't familiar with NYSC, here's how it works. After graduating from a tertiary institution, Nigerian youths have to undergo this compulsory 'National Youth Service Corps' for one year. The scheme is in 4 phases and is kicked off by the 21 days orientation camp in whatever state you get posted to. Let me start by saying getting posted to Lagos was nothing short of a miracle. One minute I was mentally planning a diet suitable for a very long distance travel and reducing my load and the next minute, all was fine with the world. Going into full details would be TMI but I'd be happy to share if anyone asks. Remember I said I read many people's
