BOOK REVIEW: 'The Spider's Web' By Dumebi Ezar Ehigiator

Yay! This book happens to be my first birthday gift this year. Frances visited me for the first time on the very first day of June and said, "I know you like books, so I brought this for you. I'm the first person to give you a gift" Trust me, she beat everyone else to the punch. Thanks babes. You are simply amazing! *blows kisses*

Now let's review . . .

'The Spider's Web' By Dumebi Ezar Ehigiator


I couldn't wait to read this book. It is so beautiful to look at. Lovely cover. Nice design. They say "don't judge a book by its cover", but I literally did this time. I knew it had to be as captivating as its cover.

26 Things About Life I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago

Over the years, I’ve been blessed to have great mentors, teachers, family, and friends, that taught me about life. I wouldn't take them for granted. 

26 Lessons About Life


These are bits of wisdom I learnt from people and books. Some of the lessons took me a long time to learn. While I picked up some from personal experiences, others are from the people I've been blessed to meet one way or the other.

DIARY: This Thing Called Family

I have written this entry five times and deleted it five times. I couldn't get myself to make a point. So I decided to scatter the points all over the place. Sorry. 

Family Like Family (CASOR) 


You know what? Blood is not always thicker than water. Don't get me wrong. I love my immediate family and I'm extremely close to them, but my close friends are more like my blood than my own extended family.

Is Your Life Going Round In Circles?

Have you ever felt that your life was going round in circles? That you were stuck on some broken record? Repeating the same cycles – the same patterns? I know I have.

And it can be frustrating. Dizzying. Maddening. Just crazy!

When You Feel Like You've Been Going Round A Circle


Whenever June comes, I'm naturally joyful and livened up. I scream and dance without music (there is always a song playing in my heart). It is the month I was born! But I found out I wasn't euphoric as much as I would normally have. I was really struggling, both physically, spiritually and emotionally.

STYLE: So I Went "Nude"

Happy Sunday sweethearts! How was (or should I say 'has been' because it's just 4:59PM and the day is not over yet?) your weekend? Hope you had a blast! I sure did too. :)

Alrightie, you know how Sunday goes around here. Glorifying God with the clothes that we wear and the styles that we rock. *winks*

Nude


I went nude. Oh yeah, you read that right! I went "nude." D-u-h! I actually heard that's what this colour is called in the fashion industry - nude. And I'm like "Huh? Oh? Okay!"

My Birthday Wishlist

Hey sweets! June 26 is almost here. Lemme quickly tell you what I want so that you can plan ahead. :D

My Birthday Wishlist


I have nothing planned for my birthday just yet. I decided to create a wishlist, even tho my greatest wish is for God to grant me the wisdom and the grace to achieve and fulfil my purpose here in earth before I die

RELATIONSHIP: The Best One You Can Ever Have

There is no point beating about the bush. I'll to be straight with you, the best relationship you can ever have is the one that GLORIFIES God. Real talk.

The Best Relationship


It's been a while I posted something related to love and relationships. The truth is I was struggling in the area of relationships.

DIARY: "A Whole Amakamedia"

May 2016
"A Whole Amakamedia"


Dear diary, this is not one of my favourite days. Few hours ago I was complaining to a friend how being unable to do anything worthwhile makes me feel.

Are You Willing To Give Up To Not Give Up?

You keep hearing "Pursue your dreams." "Follow your passion." "Keep your dreams alive." "Don’t give up on your dreams." and all those cheesy taglines. Believe me, it never gets easier. Phew! *wipes face*

Give Up On Giving Up


It seems like the longer you choose to go on this journey, the harder it becomes. You keep moving from one level of challenges to another level of challenges. Just when you think you've overcome a setback, something happens that throws you off again.

It is tiring. And it can get really frustrating.

STYLE: Rocking Red Hair

Yay! I did it! I took a leap of faith and stepped out of my comfort zone of rocking black and brown hair to red hair. It's not my first time though, but it feels so after a very long time.

Rocking Red Hair


I had this "this girl is on fire" look a couple of weeks ago. (May 2015). My intention was to look the opposite of what I felt on the inside.
