Lose to Win

Hey Lovelies
I bet most of you think this would be about those that lost during the just concluded elections in Nigeria. Naa, I'm so happy we are so done with that now and I want to really facilitate our moving away from all that to "normal issues".
If it were to be just me, Nigeria would need to pause with elections until there is a major upgrade in the electoral system. Too many lapses with unnecessary risks to people's lives.
Almost everyone I called had tales of discrepancies in their polling units and no one seems to understand that these issues are hugely significant.

There is so much I can tell you about why I hate politics as played in Nigeria (ESP the one in my state) but like I like to say, I have no interest whatsoever for very apparent reasons. I am not sure if that might change say in 20 years or maybe 10, and that is because we are really hoping that things would change for the better, but right now? I am so not interested in even listening to anyone that is talking about Nigerian politics because they usually concentrate on vested interests.

Well done to everyone that braved all the challenges to go out and vote. 

Moving on, I was watching this performance by Fantasia and omg, that girl can sing.

Style: Spring Worthy

Hey Lovelies
It's spring season and it's that time to rock the very colorful pieces in your wardrobe. 
I am hoping to inspire you with this one.

I love this floral dress. I absolutely love the colors of the dress.
With my pink blazer out and about, you can definitely guarantee a very happy JB :)

Thank You JBS amazing readers

Hey Lovelies
Whoop Whoop! We reached an interesting feat on this blog last week.
We recorded 2 000 000 views. Yes, you counted the zeros right. 
I was excited when I discovered through JDB that my blog was getting that amount of hits, as he was the one that drew my attention to my stats. 
Many thanks to y'all for always coming around.

Also, for everyone that has been complaining that my URL is too long and can be a tad confusing with where to fix the 'a' and the 'e', I decided to make things easy. You can now link in with www.jbshares.com. How cool is that? Well, the long URL is still there because it is my signature (side eye) but the shorter one will redirect you right here to this awesome place :) 
I will tell you if I want to completely discard the long one when it expires. Please, bookmark the shorter one as I intend to keep it for a very long time.

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.
