Are You Open To Love?

It's Love-Wednesday! This one is for the singles. :)

Attitude is everything when we approach people. They are watching. They are listening. And they are taking notes. I hope we are sending the right signals. 

Make Your Heart Ready

Source: G+

This is the time to work on your interaction with people around you and make sure your connections are sound. If you have issues with anyone, please deal with them before someone comes along. You don't want a barrier in that area.

God is the only perfect Father. Humans are guaranteed to disappoint. We've all been hurt, but we can still choose to love.

DIARY: I Want To Be In That Number

Is Jesus coming back soon? I think so!

Maybe yes! maybe no? But we should live with this thought fresh in our minds as if He was.

When The Saints Go Marching In



Oh when the Saints go marching in
When the Saints go marching in
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

As I sing, “I want to be in that number,” I really mean it. Even when many are waxing cold, I want to be even hotter. I want to be among those who stay on fire for God. I want to be among those who stand the test of time. I want to be among the soldiers in the fight of faith. But the ‘number’ thing kind of mean not everyone will be marching into the Promised Land. ‘Number’ could imply a limit. I'm imagining a bouncer at the door with an official guest list.

How To Know A Fool (10 Things They Do)

Hi sweets. How was your weekend? Sure you had more awesome moments than awkward. Huh?

One time I sat down and asked myself "Come, Amaka, are you not just being foolish here?" It was a your-mumu-don-do moment for me. I had to re-adjust and re-align my heart to the most important thing.

Looking back, I think it was God practically taking me through a study on the foolishness of men. Let’s explore the Bible to help us define who a fool really is . . .

Who A Fool Is


We've heard it over and over and over again that the Bible is the greatest book in the world. It is the textbook of all textbooks, the dictionary of all dictionaries and the concordance of all concordances. It is great like that.

The Word of God is the basis and ultimate authority for our definitions and conclusions.

The Bible defines A Fool in several verses, this is but one of the reasons why the study of “who a fool is” is important.

I Wear My Brother's Shirt (Why You Should Too)

Happy Style Sunday! There is something uniquely appealing about wearing your brother's shirts or the shirts belonging to any man in your life.

Ladies, can you relate? Oops. Sorry guys.

Why Men's Shirts Are The Cutest


I am blessed with two tall, cute younger brothers who are masculine in every area, their shirts are oversized for me. And I love to wear them. They are simply comfy.

Sometimes the laziness of wanting an easy going look, getting a piece I can just throw on, or finding something quite comfortable yet chic lures me to sneak into my brothers' room . .  to find a shirt.

Why I Don't Blog Everyday

"You are not a serious blogger if you don't blog everyday". "You can't be successful as a blogger if you don't blog everyday."

And those words made me bit my lips.

Not Blogging Everyday Works For Me


A digital expert and news blogger, who happens to be my boss highlighted on the fact that big blogs rank well on the search engines because they tend to post more frequently with fresh content. He said the more posts you publish per day, the higher your change of achieving higher traffic rank.

I've heard that before. But hearing it again at this time got to me.

DIARY: I Come To The End Of Myself

Everything we are and everything we have is IN God. Let's keep that in mind so that we do not exalt ourselves over God and other people, and to remain conscious of the fact that everything we have was given to us by God.

Less Of Me, More Of Jesus


Today I come to the end of myself.

You know that moment? The moment when you’re persuaded that the more you insist on selling what you know or on your rights, the more frustrated you will be. The moment when you realize that the more you set goals and pursuits for yourself, the further you will be from Christ. The moment when you finally realize there's got to be more of Jesus and less of you.

Less Is More When God Is Involved

It's a New Week. I believe someone needs this encouragement as much as I do. Let's not deprive ourselves of joy in the “little” we have, we see and we know.

Less Is More


This article was inspired by a Youth and Singles programme which took place in my local church last Friday.

I am privileged to be an executive member of the church youth group. We started a monthly fellowship with great passion and expectations. But somewhere along the line, many of us grew weary due to certain things we couldn't control.

More Than A Yellow Ankara Dress

Yellow is one my favourite colours. It's pretty difficult to argue that yellow is particularly peaceful or neutral, but for me it is vibrant, joyful; the colour of positivity and creativity.

Paint The World Yellow


As I always say, the clothes you wear are talking even when you are not. Every time you select a colour to wear you are making a statement of how you are feeling and how you want others to interact with you. So, it is recommended that you ensure your wardrobe is full of every colour for your every mood.

8 Types Of Friends You Need In Your Life

Hiya! It's Love-Wednesday! Let's talk about friendship today. Shall we?

Friends are essentials to have. It’s not about how many friends you have, it’s about having friends who bring positivity and inspiration into your life. When it comes to friendships, it about quality, not quantity.

Friends You Need In Your Life 


We all need great friends and we all deserve to have people in our lives who  bring out the very best in us.

Many of us have had seasons in our lives where we come across toxic friends who do nothing but drain us, exhaust us, suck the energy out of us and make our lives miserable. These types of friends are the worst, and we are all better off when we cut them out.

On Being Saved, Sound And Sexy

Hi sweethearts. Today I'm excited to share this piece of my heart with you. I'm in a place with God that allows me a greater measure of freedom to express myself.

Saved, Sound, And Sexy


This article is to encourage you to declare who you are in Christ. The enemy has no power when you know the God you serve and who you are in Him. Do you know who you are? As in, do you really really understand what you know?

Well, I don't know so much about myself. I am on this blogging journey to discover the who and the what about me. Here are three things I now understand . . .

Walk In Your Own Sexy Yellow Shoes

There goes that word again, sexy. Permit me this month. Lol.

Have you ever found the perfect pair of shoes, bought them, brought them home, put them in your wardrobe, and never worn them? Scrap that. Ever heard of this saying, "you can't understand a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes", what's your take on it?

Wear Your Own Shoes


When you are ready to cut something out or close some chapters in your life, God speaks into your spirit, and you must prepare your heart.

Super Eagles Hit Cameroon Hard In The FIFA World Cup Qualifier Match

I don't know when next I'd be this proud to watch the Super Eagles play again. So lemme just capture this feeling of joy now for the record.

Besides, it's a public holiday!

Super Eagles On Fire Today 


What better way to start the month as well as to enjoy the holiday than to watch your country play impressively against an "experienced" Cameroon.

Issa Sexy September

Don't be like "eww! She's so carnal!". Sexy is a spiritual word. Get over it. Lol. Yes, I am using the S-word this month. The Bible is filled with sex and romance. Go read Songs of Solomon before you argue.

God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life tho. (1 Thessalonians 4:7)

Happy Sexy September


As I navigate my journey with God, He gives me a Word for each year, each month, each week, each day. Even though sometimes I miss it, the Word never returns void.

RELATIONSHIP: What Do You Do When Someone Lies To You?

I’d just discovered a friend lied to me. It was about something senseless, which only made it worse. As days go by, I wrestled through troubling thoughts. Why would he lie about THAT? Were we ever really friends?

It's Love-Wednesday! Let's talk.

When Your Friend Lied


I tend to totally trust people from the first minute I meet them, meaning that people can only lose my trust. This doesn't mean that anybody I get to know immediately becomes my friend; it simply means that I have no prejudice towards them about the possibility of being friends with them.

So, this article is going to cover both friends, bae's and acquaintances. What we do when we discover that people we trust lied to us?

Cut Something Out

Hello sweethearts of my blogosphere. You good? I'm in a happy and peaceful place. God has shown me mercy and given me grace. I want to extend this grace to you today.

Cut Something Out


I won't want to bore you with stories behind this article because all I want is for you to get the message.

STYLE: When You Have Practically Blogged About All Your Clothes!

Yeah! True story. You all have seen all the clothes in my wardrobe so far. I don't think there is anything in there that has not been showcased here yet. Well, just maybe.

Today I want to share with you what fashion bloggers generally go through during their blogging journey.

General Fashion Blogging Struggles


My intention is not to turn this blog into a fashion blog but to simply share my interests (tips and tricks) in fashion with you like how to repeat your clothes once every week. I have taken photos of me almost everyday with or without a point and shoot! What keeps me going is the fact that I enjoy documenting my outfits and noticing how my personal style statement evolves.

Highlights From Bishop T.D. Jakes' Session In The Spirit-Life Conference 2017

I am so drunk! This will be a weekend to remember for a looong time! God is doing things this season . . . I pray we be sensitive enough to receive what is needed for our next level.

You know I can't keep it all to myself. A sis gotta share what a sis gotta share. Aha!

Quotes By T.D Jakes At #SLC2017


If all that happened yesterday evening at the Spirit Life Conference could be the end, it would still be regarded as a successful conference considering how I was raised to my feet and thrown flat on the floor by the Spirit! I sobbed my heart out under the weight of glory!

The session tagged "Face To Face" led by the great man of God, Bishop T.D. Jakes was super explosive! God definitely has something big in store for His people.

5 Odd Things That I'm Currently Loving

70% of the time my content is planned out by a time table and I like my posts to have a general theme and message. But sometimes it's fun to just have a chat about random things. So that is exactly what I'm doing today, just sharing 5 of my most favourite things of the moment.

Things I'm Loving (Part 2)


1. Being Single

Although I am single, yet technically I always hadn't. I've always had some guy who had to play the role of a boyfriend. But lately, I'm enjoying being totally single.

A Twitter Thread That Will Make You Repent Then Heal

Sharing is caring! Telling others about posts or tweets that resonate with you is one of the easiest ways to be a blessing to the world. Not to mention that it benefits both parties involved: You update your page, you create relationships and knowledge is exposed to a wider audience.

This blessed me.

An Inspiring Thread



Like I mentioned in 'Why I Love Twitter', you can express a lot in just one Tweet. But sometimes you want to tell a developing story, resurface a related Tweet, or simply talk for more than 140 characters. When that happens, you have the Tweet threading option!

Creating a thread on Twitter is simply easy. Just follow these 3 steps (Lol. I love easy steps. See here, here and there):

Step 1: Reply to your own Tweet.

Step 2:  If your @name appears in the Tweet compose field, delete it. The reply will nest under your first Tweet automatically.

Step 3: Continue replying to the newest Tweet in your thread until your story is complete.

That's all!

I haven't created a thread that went viral yet. But I have read a few threads by others that prompted me to retweet and like. So on Tuesday, I found one that prompted me to share with you on the blog. I hope it blesses you too.

How To Sell Yourself In 2 Minutes

It's Career-Wednesday! Imagine yourself in an elevator standing next to the biggest fish in your industry. Maybe it’s the chairman of your dream company, or a top class client you wish to have. And all you have is two minutes to make a strong impression about your strengths, your business or your company, what do you say?

Create An Elevator Pitch


It was the second time I would be attending an event where the speaker pointed at three people and asked them to sell themselves in two minutes.

I got home, faced the mirror, and attempted to sell myself to myself. After about 30 minutes, I still wouldn't even buy myself.

Join The Ankara And Sneakers Rockers

Happy Style-Sunday! I'm not a big fan of fashion trends. If, however, I discover how they sync with my style ingredients, I wouldn't mind giving them a go. How about you?

Ankara And Sneakers


Sneakers are one of the most versatile things to incorporate in your wardrobe. Is there anything you can't wear with them!? You can wear sneakers on a little skirt, a shirt dress, a maxi skirt with slits, and you can even wear sneakers on a wedding gown!

I love sneakers. And I love Ankara fabrics. Being able to put these together in one outfit feels almost like a dream come true. I am excited about this trend.

Dear Diary, All My Friends Are Getting Married Again

Hi Sweethearts! How was your weekend? I was eager to share about how my weekend went with you right after attending another wedding on Saturday but honestly, it's not coming out nice. I have deleted my introductory paragraphs more than twice. Here is what my draft had been like since Sunday until noon today . . .

I'm Not Married Yet


Today I'm like:

I blog blood. I blog tears. And I blog smiles.

Sometimes I wish I could write anonymously. Sometimes I wish I could tell the truth without giving myself away. Sometimes I wish I could be the blogger who only shares with the world about what she wears, what she knows, and what she has come to discover through her journey with God, without necessarily sharing what she genuinely feels in her heart. But, then, if I am that blogger who hides, maybe I wouldn't have counted the third year of being here.

Sometimes I write stuff that makes me cover my face in shame. Sometimes I write things that could make a potential suitor afraid to approach me. Sometimes I think I give myself off away too much. Sometimes I think I should stop sharing personal lessons and stories. But, then, if I do not write the words I am ashamed of, maybe the words I am proud of would never exist.

I rip my heart open and I pour out the words.

Well, this is neither a bloody, nor a teary, nor a happy entry . . .

One Thing I Like About God

When our "I love God" becomes nothing less than an expression of doing-bound services, we may need to take a look at what we mean by love.

I Like God


I checked for the word 'like' in my most favourite English dictionary, Merriam-Webster;

Like means to get pleasure from simply being with someone.

Then I checked the word 'love' in the same dictionary;

Love is a feeling of strong affection for someone.

STYLE: 6 Things That Make You Look African (Without Ankara Fabric)

Countless numbers of people never thought they were complimenting me with reassurances when they say “you look African” or ask "are you a South African?"

In most cases, I feel even more proud when they say it when I am not wearing my most preferred "African" fabric - Ankara. It tells me looking African is beyond the fabric.

How To Look African


At a point, I was getting it twisted. I had thought looking African was only about incoporating Ankara fabric into my style, until I received the shocker that Ankara is NOT African.

Oh,well.

Reflecting a bit (or so much) of African Fashion in my outfit has been more that an exciting journey for me.

When You Find Out A Collaegue's Salary Is Higher

It's Career-Wednesday! Been a while, yeah? I know. A lot has happened in my workplace and with me on the job that I haven't been able to wrap my head around yet. It's been awesome and crazy altogether. But trust me to share the gist (struggles, lessons and blessings) with you when I get a direction.

Let's talk about salary today. Lol.

Negotiate Your Salary


You know that moment when a friend tells you that the same pair of shoes they got for N4,500, you got for N8,000? That was how I felt when I found out that a colleague whose job description is same as mine earned higher. I was angry. I felt cheated. Ouch. It still hurts. :(

DIARY: I'm So Lost Without You

“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.” Psalm 25:4 (NLT). Months ago I asked God to etch this verse onto my heart, so I’d always have it with me — especially on days when I feel like I’m going round in circles and lacking direction.

I saw me running in my dream last night. And I prayed it to mean I'm running to God. Lol. Can't risk it mehn!

I'm Running 🎵


Music is a huge part of our lives and some of our most treasured, intimate and emotional memories are instantly ignited by a song or the string of a guitar.

We identify with certain songs at different times, and those tracks change significantly with our seasons.

Before It Is Stolen Again

My friends and I at an Amplify Network hangout were discussing our testimonies and struggles when one of us mentioned being physically attacked by demons. It made me cringe.

I think we give the devil too much credit when we talk about him or refer to him at every negative incident. Can we ignore him or give him the backseat?

Not Being Ignorant Of The Devices


The devil is not a joke. I believe the devil and his demons are super real. I believe the devil and the demons are powerful. I believe the devil and his demons are evil and full of wickedness. I believe they steal, they kill, and they destroy. However, I do not believe they win every battle.

STYLE: One Unexpected Thing That Makes Your Outfit Shine

Boom, pop! Ghen-ghen! oh, wow! If those are what you want people to say when they see your final put-together outfit, then this is the shoe colour for you.

Red Shoes Popping


You know those days when it feels like you are wearing the same outfits over and over again, and it just gets a bit boring, huh? Try playing with colours!

The tip on adding that “pop” is to keep the majority of things subtle and pick one or two areas to make a bold statement. It's often the little things that make a big difference, and a pop of colour can have a HUGE impact on your outfit.

DIARY: God Wants Me To Be

That morning, I woke up feeling somehow. The somehow feeling made me sober and reflective.

My Personality


There is so much that I strongly believe God wants to do with me and through me, but I woke up feeling rather uncertain. I felt as though I was "marking time" again.

Let God Set Your Agenda - Joyce Meyer

I have been intentionally following Joyce Meyer for a while now. She is one of my spiritual mamas - I listen to her sermons, read her books, stalk her tweets and visit her website whenever and everytime I have the chance to.

Permit me to use her inspiring words to speak to us today. (This is my word in season).

Let God Be God In Your Life


Remember, you made your schedule, and you can change it. Pray about your day, your week, and your life goals to find out what God wants you to do, and what He doesn't want you to do.

Which Would You Prefer - Style Or Taste?

Hi sweets. How are you doing? No matter what happens, always remember the story hasn't ended yet. With God all things are possible (Luke 1:37).

Yep. It's Style-Sunday!

Even if I decide to totally change what I blog about after overcoming my artistic identity crisis, I'd still blog about my 'What I Wore'. Lol. I am passionate about clothes because I consider it a creative tool for evangelism.

Style Vs Taste 


Sometime ago I went shopping at a thrift store, the store keeper recommended a dress to me that is not what I usually wear. So I said, "Hm . . . nice but this is not my style", then she said "ahan, you have high taste oh". There and then I started to wonder whether choosing what to buy/wear was based on style or taste.

What's taste without style, anyway?

I google-researched on the difference between style and taste because obviously I use the former more than the latter in various posts like 'Cook Your Style Sweet', 'Discover Your Style Statement', etc. It turned out you can totally admire a person’s taste in fashion without necessarily agreeing with their style preference.

"It Will End Up Better Than It Started"

Reading aloud during our Family Devotion this morning as my day led us through his 'The Daily Guide Devotional', I strongly perceived the Holy Spirit speaking directly to me. Can I save it here?

Get To Work


People can speak to your ears and possibly even your mind. Only God can speak to your whole being. His ways of communication is literally out of this world. 

His communication can be described in a multitude of ways. Surprising, powerful, unusual, unavoidable, miraculous, necessary, strong, gentle, loving, judgmental, appropriate, wise, perfectly timed, purposeful, sufficient, successful, mysterious, understandable (to the obedient), hidden (from the rebellious), ordinary, extra-ordinary and irreplaceable are just a few words that describe it.

Dear Diary, I'm Suffering From An Artistic Identity Crisis

I keep trying to discover what my media form and art style is but honestly I have no clue?? Just when I think this is it, another emerges. I'm having an identity crisis.

Artistic Identity Crisis


I've been facing a sort of creative paralysis for a while. Oddly enough, I don't have a lack of ideas. My problem is that my ideas are in a thousand different directions. And it's bothering me that I can't make it all merge together as ONE.

It bothers me sometimes that I do so many different kinds of things and like so many mediums and styles.

Strange Spiritual Gifts

Hi sweethearts. You are so amazing. Thanks for reaching out to a blogger who has been away. I hope you are super cool, and if you aren't, I trust the current rainy weather to force you to be cool. :)

Defy the odds anyway, get on fire!

Fan Into Flames


One of the questions occasionally bothering me about spiritual gifts is whether the gifts mentioned in the letters to the Romans, Corinthians, and Ephesians are exclusive. As in, are those sixteen (or is it seventeen?) spiritual gifts the only ones the Holy Spirit gives?  Were those lists meant to be just examples, or are they the only possibilities?

Dear Diary, I'm In The Middle Of A War

July 2017
~War, Amaka, war~


Every day I’m in a battle.

The prize? My attention. My time. My priorities. And most valuable of all, my heart.

My enemy is cunning and crafty with many tried and true weapons at his disposal. His favourites — schedules, conflict, busyness, social media, men. Each of these he knows very well and plans skillfully.

How To Create Personal Time For Yourself When You Don't Have The Time

No matter how much you love what you do, keeping a balance between work and your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing is IMPORTANT.

Create Personal Time


It had been a hurricane weekend. I skipped a few "personal" time and the fatigue had stormed my heart and left a trail of emotional debris. Even sleep didn't relieve the weakness. Was it the event, or just my body's edging into midlife that had made me so weary? That was when I started thinking about taking a break.

We are all busy.

Being busy is good but our lives doesn't have to be so rushed that we can't see where the time is running to.

Dear Diary, Can Me And Me Be Best Friends?

That moment you realize your friends are there to help you but you’re always going to be the one  who makes the hard decisions and deal with their consequences.

Being My Own Best Friend


I’ve spent years trying to win people’s approval and win their hearts. I’ve spent years trying to have as many best friends as I can whether by putting them on a pedestal, putting my life on hold and showing up for them whenever they needed me and trusting them blindly with all my darkest secrets and dreams.

5 Shocking Realities You Discover As You Journey Through Life

We all get drilled with certain lessons in life. Sometimes it takes repeated expressions to really get it into you, and other times one powerful experience drives the point home forever. Here are 5 shocking things I’ve discovered about life at this point in my life.

5 Shocking Realities


Realities are always shocking.

For some, in their reality, it is marriages being delayed. You had wanted to be married at certain age, but you're now older and wondering.

For some, in their reality, it is child birth being delayed. You had wanted to have a baby immediately after, but not yet.

For some, in their reality, it is finding a job being difficult. You know you're smart but no organization has seen that. 

For some, it is getting into school taking a toll. So many things you can't explain.

We realize these "realities" mostly when we are alone and it can be disappointing than shocking. 

Shocking reality literally shocks you to the bones and marrow. It shakes your view about life. It's a rude awakening.

Shocking reality, to me, is when I realize what I believed in few years ago as reality was just an assumption. Here are 5 of them:

What I Wore To Church: Cold Things

Happy Sunday! Enjoying the weekend? Here is an outfit that makes no sense, really. But I can't quite take my eyes off it. Could I actually . . . maybe . . . like it?

Cold-Inspired


I love clothes. I think clothes are an amazing way to define our personalities and express ourselves. Hey, that's one of the reasons why I blog about What-I-Wore!

Being generally inspired by colours, prints and everything African when it comes to fashion, I can say that my sense of fashion is a mix and match, a falling rainbow, a cacophony of everything I like. And when it comes to style, I am not afraid to push myself.

And The Winner Of #AmakamediaGiveaway Is . . .

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the blogoversary giveaway and helped make it a success.  Put your hands together for yourselves. You are awesome! :)

Winner Of The #AmakamediaGiveaway


Surprisingly, not many of my sweethearts showed interest as I had expected. At first, I was disturbed. Then again, it dawned on me that a lot of you visit (read, peruse, survey etc) my blog not only to get something out of here, but also to support and show your genuine love for the blogger. Thank you.

I refuse to think it's because you are 'prouding' or because you feel the money is too small for you. Lol.

A Show Of Love For Roasted corn

This is a random post to appreciate roasted corn. There is nothing like the flavour of corn roasted on coals! It's on my top 3 favourite snacks. It is one thing that gives me plenty of chewing satisfaction. I love love love it!

Roasted Corn Is Bae


Sometimes the best food we find happen to be street food. While I would be careful to eat street food, I wouldn't be too careful with roasted corn. Honestly, that's where all my money currently goes into.

When There Is A Bully In Your Office

Bullying is not just about children. Adults are bullied too - in relationships/marriages, at work, and sadly, sometimes at church. We, as Christians, are called to shed the light on these dark areas.

Have you ever been ignored, left out, pushed aside, criticized, or talked down upon. . . day after day. . . after day? This repeated act is one of the worst types of bullying ever.

It's Career-Wednesday! Let's talk about office bully. 

Dealing With Office Bully


I got into a little trouble when I wrote 'Dealing With Office Gossip'. A colleague read the article and took it personally. The person said it wasn't cool to write about it. The point of argument was people who work here would start to feel like I was referring to them. And I was like "but I didn't call names or paint anybody black".

Looking back now, it drew us closer because we now understand each other better. We laughed about it especially after another colleague read it and said "if anyone has a problem with this post, the person should go and hang themselves".

Is The Year Half Full Or Half Empty?

Happy New Half-Year sweethearts! July 3rd is the middle of the year. Half of the year is gone, half of the year is still to be. I hope you are fine and in good health.

My church family thought it was all about fashion when I wore a turtleneck piece yesterday. Lol. As I write this, I am battling with cold, cough and conjunctivitis. But I.will.be.fine.

Half Full Or Half Empty


I've always heard about the glass half full, half empty phenomenon. I got intrigued when the idea popped up in my head while in a meeting with the youth executives in my local church. (Hi Johnero!)

I am a worrier by nature but encourager by spiritual gifts. So I know how it feels to be hopeful as well as uncertain.

6 Style Challenges You Should Try This Month And Next

It feels like only yesterday that we welcomed 2017, and now here we are in July. Half of the year is already gone!

But no matter how the first half had been, we can get by with a few things to change and anticipate. And embarking on a STYLE CHALLENGE is a great way to push yourself.

Challenge Your Style


We all know it's not possible to overhaul our entire wardrobe every month or every time we want to. We are left with no choice than to wear the clothes we already have. That's why bloggers (like yours truly) inspire our style and help us to constantly learn great ways to repeat our clothes and reinvent our looks without spending a dime. 

I can count how many clothes I bought so far this year. I have saved money for myself from unnecessary fashion troubles through these challenges.

Prophetic Words From Hallelujah Festival

The ongoing one-hour Hallelujah Challenge which has so far recorded super-duper great testimonies ends in a grand celebration as Hallelujah Festival. It was "oh my God!!!". Never been any like it.

5 Life Lessons I Learnt From Travelling On My Birthday

I had gone through the events lined up for the weekend and realized that I was going to be travelling back to Lagos, Nigeria on my birthday. "I'm going to be on the road on my birthday. Can you imagine?" I told my friends. Then they gave me the "eeyah" soundtrack (an expression that shows sympathy).

I was totally apprehensive about June 26, 2017. But when the day came, I explored it with a free spirit. I discovered life.

Life Lessons From Travelling


Travelling on June 26 has opened my eyes to some things about life - things that are common or maybe undervalued, but have great significance: Life Is Like Travelling.

I love to explore.

I explore moments in my life - everything I see, feel, think, wear and know is turned inside-out.

One moment can teach you more than a classroom, job, or relationship ever will.

Dear Diary, This Is All I Want

I was planning to post about how my birthday went, but I feel prompted to share something else.

~ All I Want ~


I am happy. I am at peace with God. I am at peace with myself.

For the first time in my life, I don't want a birthday cake, gift of shoes and those things I have considered fanciful.

Happy Birthday To Me And The Blog!!!

I've been wondering what to write for my birthday and third blogiversary. It's a double celebration!

My Birthday


It's my birthday! I am excited and I feel a little bit of anxiety too. The clock won’t stop ticking (yet), and there is so much to be done. I continue to believe the purpose of my life is bigger than me, and hope I am doing enough (preparation) to make all my grand dreams come true.

I frequently write and talk about LIVING WITH PASSION, and hope I am actually exploring every day full of life. There is so much living to be done. I want to suck life out of life that life has no life in itself anymore. It's that even possible? Lol. We'll see.

STYLE: The Vibes Of Black With Red

There is power in colours. The emotions tied into the colours of clothes we wear are what give the colours their power and meaning. The important question is now: am I giving off the right 'vibe?' Am I wearing the right colours that suit me and my personality?

Black With Red Vibes


I find the field of Colour Science quite fascinating, especially since it's not a huge one (researching my post on 'how colours affect your mood' was way playful than I'd thought it would be). After connecting with my clothes to find out how they affect my mood, I knew I had a very exciting ingredient to add to my Style Statement.

What Maturity Means

Yay! My birthday is in 4 days. I've been asked how old I am in the past couple of days, and when I revealed, some expressed how they thought I was older while others exclaimed they thought I was younger.

I asked each party WHY they thought so. Most of them considered when I graduated from the university and others considered ALL the crazy things I do.

Well, we may think that maturity is about age and physical development, but that's wrong. Age is only a number! Found this article on a Christian WhatsApp group and thought to share.

20 Definitions Of Maturity


1. Maturity is when you accept other people the way they are and their level of maturity.

2. Maturity is when you understand that your ideas are not always the best.
