The past few weeks have been happening so fast. Is it something with the year end or just us ..actually me… racing against time? I have been volunteering at a hospital and consulting for a business development and empowerment organization and in the line of duty, I have had to place a lot of calls which means I speak to many people I may never see, and it’s ridiculous how it’s so easy to judge personalities through this singular form of contact. There is this particular person I have been trying to schedule an appointment for and it’s been a hassle for close to aRead More →

Making friends is one thing but keeping great friends is another. Growing up I never had as many friends, the type people call “best friend”  but I understand now that friendships happen for a reason and also making new friends shouldn’t mean losing old ones. The fact that I never had much did not make me bad friend material I just hardly found the right amount of connection. I however sometimes wish I had certain friendships. Just imagine if Zahra Buhari was your childhood friend 😊😂…you know Well I am sharing secrets from personal and shared experiences on what great friendships takes in this post 1.Read More →

Something significant happened in my life when i was about 11 years old. I cooked a full pot of Jollof rice all by myself for the first time. This week, precisely the 22nd of August was celebrated as #WorldJollofDay and all the images i saw made me reflect back to my first attempt at making Jollof Rice. Looking back now, I think that happened pretty much late. Then again if I had not done what i did it would have happened even much later. Was the rice anything to write home about? You will keep on reading to find out. As the first child myRead More →

Nudity is not Female empowerment

They say it’s all about sharing the natural beauty of  pregnancy, some others say it’s creative photography. Others have argued that all of the charade is aimed towards removing stigma associated with womanhood, pregnancy and breastfeeding, so society can see it as a natural part of life. I just think we are taking it too far. Just like that nudity is becoming trendy and unashamedly encouraged in the name of empowerment. I remember when I left home for the first time, It was to a boarding  secondary school. My very first night, after a long journey was nothing like the Sunday night I imagined. IRead More →

self love vs self care

Sometime in June i happened to read from two different blogs on these very important concepts of self development. What is interesting about this was that just after reading my friend JessicaHugoInspire’s talk about self care the next post i read was from SuzyMarie on Selflove. So self love and self care are veryyy different? In that moment it hit me…they are actually two different things. My thoughts started going wild. I realized that growing older made me less self love conscious and more self care conscious. I cannot say what transpired in between but i attribute much of it to Adulting. As we growRead More →

We are in the fourth month already, with eight more to go? Are you having fun? They said time flies when you are having fun right?

I like to add here that – A planner is the perfect tool! It is never too late to catch up with yourRead More →

Do you remember the time you went shopping down town, with a bosom friend? While at it, you had to sort through a collection of not-so-new stuff. One time you picked this beautiful dress with a missing button (or even more than a missing button) but you still bought it anyway because all you had to do was simply fix the imperfection. You did not only pay less, but you also succeeded in adding a designer piece to your wardrobe collection. Yes! Yes! Thrift shopping or thrifting is a nice word to replace bend-down-select as we call it in Naija. One time somebody was askedRead More →
