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. 😂

  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

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 …

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

MY TOP 5 CHRISTMAS DESTINATIONS

Every year, when the kitchen workload that comes with a Christmas 'party' in my house begins, I always make it a point of duty to tell my mum that stressing ourselves on this day is counterproductive because it's a holiday and to me, holidays mean rest. How nice would it be to just go out and chill or stay at home and sleep or better still, just not have any guests (too much?). Along with these thoughts and whinings is always this part of me daydreaming about how I'd make sure Christmas is much more different for me when I start a family of my own. One of the activities that always pop up, year in, year out is traveling to someplace fun to sightsee, relax and make new memories.
I honestly think that in one's lifetime, it would be fun to visit as many countries as possible but taking many many factors into consideration such as the fact that there are 195 countries in the world, how feasible is that and how many is actually 'many'? I however have a list of …
