Nigeria Decides: It's time to go out and vote

The day is finally here. If you are reading this, you should be going out to vote your next president and senators ...
Please, if you are in Nigeria, ensure to go out and cast your vote for the candidate you believe is deserving to lead Nigeria.

I want to implore us all to choose patriotism, because then we can understand the need to focus on answering the question "What does Nigeria really need at this point?" above any other thing that we may have chosen to focus on.

Style: Prints and Denim

Hey Lovelies
I was looking around the other day and I realized the posts with the most number of searches are my style posts. I am flattered to know y'all love my boring style :) 
I also realized I haven't put up any style posts lately.

In today's style diary, I played around with denim and African prints. I absolutely enjoyed creating this look.

Do we have white Nigerians?

Hey lovelies
I was checking for something the other day that took me to the federal ministry of health's website. To my utter surprise, there was a section that was talking about adolescent health for Nigerians but the image was that of white people. Seriously?

Career Talks: Bottom Up

Hey Lovelies
Most opportunities require you starting from the bottom. The problem with us young people is that we always expect things to be rosy right from the start. I do not believe there is any career where you will just walk in and you are sitting right in the days of glory.
You have to put in the work (suffer head) first before you get to that point where you start to reap the fruits of your labor. Fruits = there was a season of sowing. Depending on your career path, that sowing might take years. 

Forget all the 'high heel life' I try to embrace like what should be the norm, when the situation demands (which is my everyday reality actually) I get off them into some comfy kicks and get the job done.

Unpredictable, Unnecessary!

Hey Lovelies
I received a personal email the other day from a reader. He was down and frustrated. He felt like his world was crumbling or could crumble.
He sent me the mail because he believed I'm gifted with being able to figure these things out or always knew exactly what to say to send anyone to an epiphanic moment.
What he didn't know was that I was also having my down moment when I read his mail.

                                       Take a deep breath, snap out of it and stay positive

I was battling the negative thoughts in my head. At some point, I felt like life could be more predictable than it was. "Why did most parts of it have to test my strength?"

The dress: #teamblueandblack? #teamwhiteandgold?

Hey Lovelies
What color do you see?

The picture of this dress has made its rounds around the web for one simple reason- trying to tell its color. The dress has become so popular than anyone can imagine and it is so funny.
Everyone keeps seeing different colors and I simply do not understand why.

How to be a great lifestyle blogger - Part 1

Hey Lovelies
I've had people ask me quite a lot about how/why I chose lifestyle blogging as opposed to the regular entertainment, news and gossip blogging styles.

For me it was easy, the motive with starting a blog was to talk about my personal experiences and things that interested me.

Tell me not

Hey Lovelies
A few years after I made a decision to walk these paths in the manner I assured myself I had mastered, it took another bout of excitement to displace my very rational thoughts.
Tall, dark and handsome, cliche I know, but these have never mattered to me. 
Cool, calm and collected, the perfect epitome in every sense, now that got to me and more.
Down to earth, thoughtful, easy going, smart with an unmissable streak of confidence in every move. I've never seen any man as easy to love as him. Love? Did I just mention love?

Career Talks: Go for passion

Hey Lovelies
Passion is like an invisible fuel. It can trigger so much energy, creativity and drive like you've never known before.

If you ever find yourself doing something you do not love, just reserve the time and energy for something you do love, because at the end of the day, that is what you should be doing.
