Are You Addicted To Social Media? Do This

It's 5:00 AM here. What if I told you I'd been on Twitter since 12:30 AM? This is the height. Somebody needs help.

A 3-Day Social Media Fast


We can use our phones to fill up every quiet, lonely and awkward moment, to keep us entertained, to be up to date, and to connect with friends as well as strangers. But how much time is too much time to spend on a phone, on social media or any other mobile device at that?

RELATIONSHIP: 6 Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

I was a bit reluctant to talk about relationship today. I copied. Then again, when I think that somebody might be in dire need of a word, I get inspired to write. 

Red Flags 


Relationships and love can be difficult. It is very natural to look to sources of knowledge to assist in giving us the easiest and fastest way out.

DIARY: How I Spent Easter

Sometimes keeping track of your life in a diary can be a lot of work. I was excited when I started to think about this post. But then again, I got stuck as to what angle to start from. Ah, too many things happened . . . good things.

Easter 2016


Easter break started on Friday and ended on Monday (yesterday). For each day, about 10 things happened and 2 events were attended. So you can imagine how difficult it is for me to pen it all down.

Yes, We Can Face Tomorrow!

Hello sweeties! How are you doing? It feels good each time I have to post something on my blog. I think I'm still thrilled about being a lifestyle blogger. It is something I never saw coming. Really.

And you have made it more fun. Thank you. 

We Can Face Tomorrow



The song illuminating my heart even as I type is:

"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds my future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives."

I can't get enough of this song. I have been singing with all excitement and joy. I have sang high soprano, high tenor and high alto. I have also sang low tenor. Now I am singing high bass. Lol.

STYLE: Feminizing The Tie

It’s no secret I love men’s tie and incorporating them into my outfits is one of my favourite fashion statements. So I thought it would be fun to show you a few of the ways I like to incorporate ties into my styles. :)

Wearing A Tie Femininely


I admire men who wear ties, but I adore ladies who wear them. They are BOLD and WEIRD. Lol. Women should wear ties often. I’m even wearing one right now, I'm not joking. I like them that much.

BOOK REVIEW: 'The Saving Graces' By Patricia Gaffney

I love books. I await the day I'd be paid to read a book - paid to do almost everything I love to do. Thought to review a book from my library.

'The Saving Graces' By Patricia Gaffney


I read this book as a teenager, and here I am reading it in my twenties. I wish I had written a review back then so that I could compare what I thought about the strong characters (in terms of love, sex, friendship and marriage) with what I'm thinking now.

20+ Bible Verses About Business And Money

Following Monday's inspirational review, I decided to share some Bible verses I found related to business, wealth and money. Isn't it thrilling to know that the Bible has a lot to say about business, money and wealth?

20+ Bible Verses About Business


As a media entrepreneur, I have found the bible very helpful in such a time as this. I now study the bible regularly to strengthen my faith and seek guidance directly from God.

I literally get business tips from the Bible. It's exciting!

RELATIONSHIP: Like Seriously, We Need True Friendships

My one time best friend never saw the need to invite me to her sister's wedding (although I'd not have attended because I'm broke). I was shocked when I saw the wedding pictures on BBM. I guess she is not my best friend anymore.

Where Did My Best Friend Go? 



Friends may come and go, but to have a lifelong, close, personal friendship is truly a great blessing.

My best friends have change over the years. Some I've long lost contact with while some have ended up being on a social media group page. We've lost connection. We've lost touch.

DIARY: She Stole My Future Daughter's Name

Someone get me an assassin! I will not take this! I will kill somebody! Where is my lawyer?! Someone needs to be charged for thievery!

Baby Name Thief (BNT)


We are women. We are expressive. We are open. We are vulnerable. We talk about a lot of things - Things that are relevant and things that are not. We share our pain and our struggles. We share our dreams.

Do BUSINESS

Hahaha!!! See God relating with me as a businessman! I'm flabberwhelmed and overghasted!

"Do Business Until I Come"


You know I like to be very personal with you. Right? So I have to tell you this - God taught me how to draw a business plan. It's huuuge!

STYLE: Daring In The Mix!

Yes, I did it! I have been meaning to do this for a long time. I'm glad I finally did. Oh, it feels so goooood!!! If you'd been following on Instagram, you already know what I'm talking about.

Mixed Prints


Not every time plain and pattern. Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and wear prints on prints. Yeah, I did. So can you! :)

How To Trend On Twitter Quickly

It's Friday! Since I stopped creating more podcasts, I've not figured out what Friday should look like. At the moment, we've got Inspirational Mondays, Dear Diary Tuesdays, Love Wednesdays, and Style Sundays. For Fridays? Nothing yet.

Anyways, let's keep going. This can work.

How To Trend On Twitter


So I trended on Twitter last week. :D

Always See Yourself in a Positive Light - Pst. E.A Adeboye

I had my quiet time with the Open Heavens Devotional Guide very early this morning. It brought me back to the journey of self discovery. I see a dire need to share a part of it with you.

A Royal Priesthood


"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:" 

~ 1 Peter 2: 9

RELATIONSHIP: Where Are The Good Guys?

I was gisting with some guys - real mature Christian brothers - about a particular issue relating to relationships when we delved into "What I want in a woman". Being the only female around, I just couldn't keep it to myself!

8  Things Godly Men Want In A Woman

I stole Martins' Dp

I love men. Yeah. I don't care how you interpret it. I honestly love men. I like how they think. They are not as complicated as women. They are simple. They go straight to the point. When they are ready and see what they want, they go for it. No time!

DIARY: Why Am I Like This?

"Dear Diary" is slowly becoming the best read feature on the blog. You people just like doing amebo. Lol.  :) 

Me and Makeup 


I pride myself in many things. Being a lady who rocks a makeup-less face with confidence is one.

I'm a model who wears no makeup. :) 

VIDEO: "Soidier" - Falz ft. Simi

I'm a big fan of pure entertainment. You don't have to promote sex and nudity before you entertain people. Let all music artistes learn from Falz! This guy is good!


I honestly love this video! This is the kind of content I look out for. Completely clean. Anything that paints Nigeria in a good light, shares my belief or expresses a great dose of creativity, I'm up for it. I'd promote music artiste like Falz without getting paid. (In my mind, I really wish to get paid tho).

What I Wore At The Filling Station Ft. The Okada Man

Hello sweethearts! How was your weekend? Hope you made it stress-free just like we planned? OK. Good. :)

Today's WIW post has no bearing. It is as confusing as the title itself. You might as well help me give it a better title after seeing the pictures of 'What I Wore'. :D

At The Filling Station


A camera solely focuses on you when you stand behind a wall, a gate or any plain structure (like I always do), but when you stand on the road or on a bridge, the focus of the camera will be divided. Many other things will draw the attention away from you - to people, vehicles, animals etc.

It's time to share a word I learnt from my Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary. Erm . . . Sorry. I wanted to grab your attention with a crazy title. Did it work? :D

This article might get you angry. Well, I don't mind. I will write it anyway. It's a bit long sha.

I love creativity. I love arts. I love pictures.

I love pictures so much that I created a category labelled "PHOTO TALK" on my blog. Pictures inspire me. My room is decorated with wallpapers showing me pictures of beautiful things. I can simply look at a picture and write a story or a poem from it.

NEWS: Wowzer! Okada Rider Emerged As Best Graduating Student

When I started out to blog, I decided here that I was going to share ONLY positive news. It was a struggle. I struggled because the bad news overshadowed the good ones and made it very difficult for me.

But these days, the good news come staring at me on the face. I'm so happy!!!

Adeyemo Kazeem, A Former Okada Rider


Adeyemo Kazeem who used to make a living as a commercial motorcycle rider (Okada) and was a "consistent carrier" of last position in primary 1-4 has emerged the best graduating student at the 4th & 5th convocation ceremony of the Osun state University.

RELATIONSHIP: Use Two Words To Save Your Relationship

Hi! It's Love-Wednesday! Love-Wednesday has lasted for more than 6 months already. And it's not going to stop today. We must keep improving on our relationships - with God, with friends and with family.

5 Creative Ways To Say "Thank You"


Many problems in relationships are as a result of being taken for granted. After being together for a while, we don't see the need to appreciate our friends and family. If you and your partner have fallen into this trap, it’s time to focus on appreciating each other more.

Meet My Friend, Susan Asakpa, The Beautiful Cab Driver

I'd be damned if I don't blog inspiring stories about my friends. Why then am I a lifestye blogger? Yeah. I have to reiterate that she is my friend. It's not everytime you see your friend on TV, hear about them on radio or read about them on a blog.

Susan Asakpa, The Beautiful Cab Driver


Asakpa Aghogho Susan is a graduate of Accountancy from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Like me, she is not practising. She is a cab driver in Abuja.

Edima celebrated her on Facebook yesterday. She wrote this inspiring piece;

PHOTO: Oresegun Olamide's Painting Will Light You Up

"It's a lie!!!" "These are not paintings!!!" That's what hits you when you look at Olumide Oresegun's works. They are so real that you cannot believe they are not. I couldn't help having an extra post today. 

Olumide Oresegun's Paintings


Knowing how much I am inspired by creativity and everything that has to do with arts, I went in search of Olumide Oresegun to discover more about him after seeing one of his paintings on BMF yesterday. I was mersmerized.

DIARY: I Look Like Olajumoke Orisaguna

This might be considered old news. But it doesn't sound as such to me. I've lost count of the articles/comments I've read and the videos I've watched about her story. I think I'm becoming obssessed with the "rhema" I get from it all. So I have decided to help myself by writing this. . .

Olajumoke Orisaguna



I've read about Olajumoke for the umpteenth time. I'm totally mesmerized. Each time I read her story, I get goose pimples. I literally see God.

Banana


I love eating banana. Epecially with groundnuts. It makes a great snack. It's fun, flavourful, sweet and nutritious. Yummy! 

I recently read that banana is fattening to eat at night. I am on a mission to add a little fat here and there, I happily ate it as late as 10:03 PM yesterday.

Declare Your Season Of Fruitfulness

It's Friday! If I'd created a podcast today, I'd have voiced out a few prayers for this month. This is my season of fruitfulness! I know it in my spirit!

Season of Fruitfulness


What I've been dealing with and what I've been feeling from God is that He wants to destroy unfruitfulness and barrenness and wants to make this a fruitful month (and a fruitful year generally).

PHOTO: Creativity Is When You Sketch Out Styles Out Of Fruits & Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables have never looked so chic. I saw these pictures and couldn't wait to show you. Everything keeps confirming God's Word in my heart this season (fruitfulness). Check onnit!

"Fashion Food"


A San Francisco-based creative young director and fashion designer, Gretchen Röehrs blended food and fashion in her illustrations. Instead of creating pen-and-ink sketches, the fashion illustrator used colorful fruits, vegetables and flowers to form artistic fashion drawings.

RELATIONSHIP: How To Avoid Awkwardness When You Run Into An Old Friend, Classmate Or Colleague

Have you ever been in that awkward situation when you are at a junction, waiting for a bus, and you run into an old friend from school or a colleague from past work whom you haven’t seen for about 4 years? Aha, I bet you have!

When You Run Into An Old Friend


It's not abnormal that some of us struggle to start a conversation with an old friend we haven’t seen for a while. They may have been really close but as time went by, the emotional connection faded, and the common ground we had with them narrowed.

DIARY: I'm Weird Like That. It's A Gift

If you’re on the journey of self-discovery, finding your purpose, following your passionenjoying your life, or living your dreams, people are going to think you’re weird.

Trust me, it’s a step in the right direction. 

Weirdness Is A Gift


I was pretending to be weird. And before I knew it, I became a weirdo.

Being weird is to stand out from the crowd, to separate yourself from the world.
