Hurray! I just want to say if it is your first time here, Welcome to my blog ♥ Guys March is here, and to think that we just kicked off 2017 a while ago. We are moving forward no matter what and I thank God for the gift of life. So this morning i got inspired to motivate and encourage others as i do the same for myself. You may not be as excited because you feel like you are falling back on schedule. Your plans for the year are not taking shape and you are not feeling good about it? Please, please, like weRead 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 →

Hello Fam ♥, Welcome back to my blog! I do not know if i should say i know why, but i have always gotten this question from my friends and even people i have barely known. Mostly along the lines of  “How did you know he/she is the one?”, “Okay, how do you know who to settle for?”, “What signs did you see in your husband that made you decide he was the right one?”, “Are there particular traits a person must show?”. After my last post, it was no surprise that i  also got similar messages in my dm and i choose to addressRead More →

For a very long time, the idea of love has been and is still being considered overrated. I would like to think this is true, however it worries that the act of being committed in love merely takes the back seat. Even those who have been miserably hurt still find love again. Leading up to Valentines day and even after, i realized that some people where all about having a “bae” for the essence of getting Valentine gifts to show off on social media, and some others preferred to act all tough and self content. I like the whole self love game going on andRead More →

Satisfy your cravings There is nothing wrong with a special cheat treat, if you are not one of those people with the weird kind of cravings. Don’t you agree with me that its okay to give your body what it wants once in a while? They say that resisting the urge to give into your cravings is a sign of self discipline. I think the real test is in being disciplined enough to set the limits when choosing to satisfying the craving. Before i go on. their is a medical belief that when you have cravings, the particular craving is related to something your bodyRead More →

It is the month of love and i am certain you have heard the cliche gist of how everyday should be valentine’s day BUT, my people!  I do not agree. That school of thought holds no water in my opinion. Some extra effort at thoughtfulness will suffice, bearing in mind that it does not have to break the bank while at it. In the midst of a busy schedule in this current age, mothers are working extra hours to support their homes and make sure our children get the best, i think valentine’s day is a good day to take a breather and perhaps getRead More →

Hello guys! My name is Ijay, Welcome to my blog. January is gone guys wow! How has it been? I swear this adulting thing is not beans, i miss being a child seriously. Through the years, the transition from childhood to teenage to adulthood has got me thinking hard and reflecting a lot lately. I miss the days i never had to worry about the things that keep me up late at night now. My younger brothers and sisters out there, you guys have no idea how good you have things rolling for you now as someone is busy adulting for you. You had betterRead More →

Over the years there are a few things i have learnt and i am sharing in this series of post to make someone out there have the best moments while it lasts. While this appears to be the most exciting time of your life, so much of uncertainty looms over every passing day. Especially for first time mums, it is like a feeling of euphoric expectancy sandwiched in sheets of discomfort and unease. Well, the only way forward, i would say is to keep it moving, there is no time to mark time.   Build that Relationship The journey of a life time of mother andRead More →
