Relationships can always be improved when we make it work. I strongly believe it's always worth a try. Let's continue from where we stopped last week . . .

I've already told you how to go about identifying what the issues are. You have communicated your feelings to yourself, and have identified what the real issues are. Now it's time to talk with your partner.

Jesus' Breast

The word "breast" has been appearing on me frequently for some days now. I guess it's because the month of October is stated to be the world's Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Lean on Jesus' Breast


I am so sure the title of this post got you wondering. Lol. Me too. I have not gotten over my latest discovery from the Bible. I'm awed by the revelation.

WIW: Green Jacket

Hi! What did you wear to church today? Share with us. Give us some tips from your style. On Sundays, it's about WIW! (Some people will be thinking I'm carnal now. Lol. Woreva!

Green Jacket


I am not sure whether I was wearing a blazer or a shirt. Lol. To be on a safe side, I have decided to call it a jacket. At least, that's the general description for any garment that has a front opening, collar, lapels, sleeves, and pockets.  :)

So yeah, I wore a green jacket over a black dress. I'm still into green like crazy. See pictures below . . .

Pronounce "cucumber"

What if we were to throw up every time we fail to pronounce some kinds of food correctly? Let's thank God the taste of food is not synonymous to how we pronounce them. Hehehe . . .

Make Your Relationship Work Jhorr!

It's Wednesday! I want to talk about love and relationships. I don't play with matters of the heart. Permit me if I sound a little touchy.

Making Changes in a Relationship


Gone are the days when people mended things. We live in a disposable world right now. When it stops working, you throw it away. When you feel it's no longer useful, you show it to the door. "Aint nobody got time for that", some say.

STYLE: What a Night Gown!

(Lol. Please don't laugh at me. We talked about compliments yesterday. Remember?)

So I woke up. Looked into the mirror. And v-i-o-l-a! I got inspiration from what I was wearing. My green night gown!

Styles in an Epic Night Gown


A night gown is a gown that you wear at night. True or yes? Lol. I know that you know that I know that a night gown is a gown that you wear to sleep. It's usually a loose dress that you find comfortable to sleep in.

I slept in this dress. And seriously, I woke up like this.

Just Say "Thank You"

Happy New week, sweethearts! How are you doing? Please say "fine. Thank you." Lol. Following a previous post on 'giving compliments', I thought it cool to write about receiving compliments. It's another issue we need to tackle. 

Receiving Compliments


We all love to be noticed. OK, maybe you don't but I really do love to be noticed. Many people who are like me appreciate it when people admire us and compliment us. But few of us do not know how to accept these compliments gracefully. Instead, we downplay the compliments or even reject them.

Wouldn't You Rather Go for A #HeartCheck?

I went to see My Doctor (and Heart Keeper) for check up. And He said I'd be needing a surgery. Pray for me!

#HeartCheck


You didn't understand when I said I was as blank as a sheet. Yeah? I have not been very positive and inspired as expected. So I decided to visit The Healing Centre. When I got there, it seemed the Doctor knew I was coming. He had already opened my file and was treating my case. Whao!

I so love today's date! The tenth day in the tenth month. It's such a ten-ten kinda day. May the rest of the year be ten times better than it had started in Jesus' name. Amen. (more like a zero added for you*winks*)

It's Saturday. Let's play a game of ten-ten. You in?  :D

I like games that task the mind and the eyes. Games that make us think and become aware of who and where we are. I personally believe fun is when we learn, grow and share with one another. Yeah.

N600 Made-in-Aba Sandals Have Lasted For 2 Years

Yes. We'll celebrate Nigeria till the end of October! Here's another one. Two years ago, I went to Oshodi market to buy these sandals. I remember vividly when I got this pair of sandals because at that time, I was planning to wear a touch of green for Independence day. Lol. I always wear green on that day jarey. 

Patronizing Made-in-Aba Products


It's good to wear designers. But sometimes you should get it from the Aba guys. These guys are very creative when it comes to designs.

Lord, Give Us Some Zeroes

All the while I had thought I had two N1000 notes in my purse. I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered one of the notes was a N100. Omo see gbese!

Zero Makes A Difference


'Zero' may appear to be so "simple" that when you read the title of this post, you almost said, "What is zero? Amaka, can we talk about something more important." Yeah, I know you sounded so. Don't lie. Lol.

We are Nigerians, We Green With Pride

This is an update on - Let's Go Greeny!. A post I hurriedly created exactly a year ago. Today is another October 1; Nigeria's Independence Day! So I thought we could refresh our memory on the beauty and glory of green. :)
