A Year Older||Happy Birthday To Me!

No, writing exams isn't going to stop me from putting up an obligatory, not so obligatory birthday post on here. You know why? Because I'm typing this as early as March 4th, 10 days before my birthday. Not really because it's a do or die affair, but because I'm en route and I think this is the best way to keep myself busy and awake while traveling. I'm hoping I get to make this super short.

This year, I really wanted something different and I wasn't going to wait for anyone to do that for me. Let's just say I had an epiphany and decided that irrespective of how busy the weekend before my birthday week is going to be, I'd like to glam up and take pictures. Of course, the fact that it is the weekend before I start my final exams is enough to discourage me and make me think of a different thing to do but when I realized that

1. I would be writing an exam on my birthday after having written two the day before and being who I am, I'd probably just want to go back home, rest and do nothing special. Whew

2. It's my last birthday as an undergraduate and taking pictures to document it would be perfect especially as I did in fact take pictures on my first birthday as an undergrad. I actually changed outfit four times hahaha. (Those pictures were only in hard copy and as at the time of writing this, I don't know where I dumped them but I'd see if I can include them in this post).
.... I decided that yes, I would be doing this regardless of what my schedule and bank account says.

Oh, here's one. Hilarious. Those cheeks are goneee, sadly. 

What is this awkward smile? 

So yeah, I did it and I have absolutely no regrets (it's super weird that I'm writing this in past tense already even though I've actually not done it). I mean, just look at these beautiful pictures of me! (Pictures I'm yet to take. Lool)

Let's take a minute to talk about how life comes at you fast. One minute, you're sure that by your next birthday, you'd be a graduate and all. Next minute, life happens in form of ASUU strike and you're still trying hard to not let school stress get to you. It's all good though, can't complain too much. I'm looking forward to writing about my undergraduate experience on here. More for myself but hopefully it entertains you.

I'm not sure when I'd be able to post this, whether before or after my exam but one thing remains constant - Happy Birthday to me!
In my 2018 birthday post, I said I was looking forward to all that God has planned for me and oh, he had a lotttt and in spite of the ups and downs, I'm super grateful. In my 2017 birthday post, I said I would probably not use the eyeshadow palette my brother got me. 2 years on and it's still as good as new, lol. I started this blog in 2015 and reading that year's birthday post is making me cringe so bad especially because of the pictures. I'm not going to link back to it for obvious reasons haha so if you're really curious, you've got work to do. Sorry, not sorry.

Enjoy these beautiful pictures and oh, thanks for reading. xxx


  1. Happy birthday Laitanbee!!!Yaay another birthday post,I don't know why but somehow I'm usually looking forward to them...I hope you have something nice planned for today,please do try to have fun irrespective of exams and all other factors.Beautiful pictures by the way,you've clearly changed looking at both pictures,I'd say change is good! You've probably heard this countless times but do you realise how modelling would fit you perfectly? I mean between the height,face structure and smile I'm no scout but I'm pretty sure Beth models would kill to have you,keep that in mind, whenever you need funds you have untapped resources dear,lol. Happy birthday once again,may God grant you all your heart's desire this new year,Cheers!

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

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

For Times When You Go From 100-0 And You Can't Explain It.

This post title is quite a mouthful simply because I couldn't find something else to describe how I felt the day I wrote this. I've been in this situation more times than I can remember. It's always exhausting and annoying. I'll be gay, exuberant and then SNAP! I'm feeling down, irritated at nothing in particular and the rest of the day becomes gloomy. No, it ain't mood swing . Or is it? The most annoying thing about this predicament is when people start asking what's wrong and I can't come up with something genuine. The occurrence that prompted this post was the most 'interesting' one ever. Here's the detail. I was having an almost perfect day doing few things online that required me to write a little something about myself. I included "I'm a PhlegMel(Yes, I believe in temperaments)" after 're-looking' up the words in the dictionary to make sure they suited me. As I was to discover later that day, that was a wro
