STYLE: When It Becomes A "Jean" To Go To Church

The normal me would have started this post with a greeting like "Happy Sunday Sweetheart!" but today is not a normal Sunday. Who would have thought that going to church can turn out to be a sin?

Going To Church In Difficult Times


We are not permitted to go to church till further notice because the government has mandated everyone to maintain self-isolation and social-distancing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Social distancing and bans on large groups mean regular Sunday services are not feasible. Churches have had to adapt to a world with coronavirus;

Some have moved to live streaming their gatherings, some have posted videos church members can watch later while some have devised a means of splitting their services into batches of a 50-member congregation (fifty being the advised maximum number of a crowd gathering in this time).

10 Best Bible Verses To Drive Out Fear Amidst Coronavirus Outbreak

As at today, people all over the world are wearing protective face masks as a preventative measure against the spread of the coronavirus. Some are almost bathing with hand sanitizer every minute in order not to take chances at touching their faces with the virus. Everyone is being too careful. It's getting really scary out there.

Bible Verses Against Fear

Combat the fear of Convid-19 with bible verses

One of the hardest things about this moment is the uncertainty. Plans that were made months/years ago are now being cancelled, with doubts about rescheduling because everything is so up in the air.

Coast to coast, large public gatherings have been prohibited. Employees have been told to work from home, universities have moved all classes online and primary schools have closed for sanitizing. The stock market has seen meteoric crashes. The naira to dollar exchange rate is becoming more than a nightmare.

As the number of confirmed cases of illness grows, so too does the nation's collective uncertainty. Public anxiety is high, and everyone is trying so hard to curtail fear.

Six Pointers To Choosing Your Perfect Match

Some months ago, I found this article on a WhatsApp group that I do not exactly enjoying being a part of. (Lol. If given the choice, I'd delete the group).

Anyway, according to the poster, this article was originally written by Reverend Ebenezer Diyaolu. I believe it would be helpful to my single/married friends, so I copied it for you.

6 Mates You Must Marry 


One of the ways your marriage will not add to the rate of divorce in our world today is for you to marry your mate and if you are married already, make your spouse your perfect match! 

You see that statement of ' Am I your mate?' does not apply in marriage. You must marry your mate. I will like to talk on six dimensions you and the person you want to marry or you have married must be mate.

Dear Diary, A Lot Has Happened

When you have three good news and three bad news, which would you share first? The good ones or the bad ones? Tell me.

Life Update


There is so much happening in my life right now, but I can't put them all in writing. This is partly because I am yet to process all my emotions and partly because the appointed time to share has not yet come.

Left to me, I will abandon this blog until I am ready. However, it is typical (and ethical, lol) of me to let you in into my world. I want you to know what my Heart Rays at this time. These are trying times.

One minute I'm smiling, the next minute I'm crying. It's been taking a lot from me to stay positive. A lottttt.

Top 3 Influential Women I'm Wishing A Happy International Women's Day In 2020

All over the world, March 8 is celebrated as International Women's Day. I thought to celebrate the women who have been greatly influential in my life instead of doing the regular Sunday-Style post today.

3 Women I Celebrate In My Life Today


There are many influential women in the world from all walks of life—politics, business, sports, and the arts to name just a few. Do you know what makes them influential? It's the RESPECT they give and receive. Respect had to be earned or given. You just can't take it.

In my opinion, being influential is more about being respected.

According to Webster Dictionary, to be 'influential' means to possess influence.

in·​flu·​ence | \ ˈin-ˌflü-ən(t)s\
1: the power or capacity of causing an effect in indirect or intangible ways:

2a: the act or power of producing an effect without apparent exertion of force or direct exercise of command:

Dear Diary, My Most Expensive Phone Was Stolen In Lagos!

I didn't want to share this post with you because it is a very painful one. Then again, I said to myself, "you are supposed to be promoting authenticity."

I Want It Back


You know that feeling you get when something breezes past you like the wind, that was how I felt at the point when it happened.

The first thing I did was to reach out for the phone in my bag. I had a panic attack when I couldn't touch anything that feels like a phone.

I poured out my bag's content to be doubly sure I wasn't being paranoid. But it wasn't there!

MUSIC: Kachi CG — Just For You

Hi Sweets! Happy Valentine's Day! How is it going for you? It's all lovely here. I just popped in to show you this music video; it is my all time favourite love song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!



The lyrics of this song come from a heart that has been swept away by a love that’s deeper than anything you could have never imagined.

How To Start A New Lifestyle Blog In 2020 (And Stay Committed For Years)

Hi, my name is Amaka. I've been blogging for about six years and loving every moment of it. Blogging helped me find my voice, get a job and earn money on the side.

When I was learning how to create a blog back in 2014, it took me some time to find all the right information online and I had to look for it on different websites. That's why I've created this blog post to teach beginners how to make a blog fast and easy.

It's not as complicated as many people think.

Starting A Blog In 2020

How to start a new lifestyle blog

Many people have walked up to me asking about how they can start their blogs too. I thought it would do a lot of good to put it out here on the blog.

First of all, I must let you know that blogging is hard work. It requires patience, consistency and passion. A lot of that. Without passion, I probably would have stopped blogging the following year.

If your primary goal for wanting to start a blog is to make money, then I'm sorry to let you know that this article would not be useful for you. However, if you are striving for living a significant and purposeful life, then you are in for a ride!

Dear Diary, My Husband Left Me

Throughout your dating, engaged, and married life, you're bound to hit some bumps on the road. Hopefully, they'll make you stronger. Or, in my case, they'll make you stay awake.

Missing Him

My husband left me

Some weeks ago, I was alone. All by myself. At home. In the room. On the bed. I've never felt more lonely.

"I miss my husband!"

Sometimes loneliness creeps up on you in your marriage and before you know it, you start to feel empty, sad, bored, depressed and isolated.

Dear singles,
Marriage does not cure loneliness.

3 Huge Lessons From Last Weekend

Happy New Week! We are already 27 days into 2020. The year seems to be going pretty fast, or what do you think? I've got a couple of personal lessons to share with you today. I hope they inspire you in some way.

Lessons From Last Weekend

Lessons from last Weekend

I'm one who is very passionate about growth, whether slow or fast. I’ve tried to stay so open to the education that comes from growth and the pain that follows. I desire to LIVE this full life that God has provided me — on every level. Even as I make mistakes (and I make lots), as long as I promise to learn from them I consider it a win.

So, off the top of my head, here are the top three things I’ve learned over the weekend.


1. Red Lipstick Doesn't Hurt

Isn't that a weird lesson? Yes, it is. And no, it isn't. It’s taken me most of my adult life to learn. . . to be less self conscious (my anxiety never helped with that!), and I’ve found this to be especially challenging in my professional life. But last weekend I really saw how much better I've grown when I stopped being too self-conscious.

Back in the day, I'd say "makeup makes me nervous. . . Yada yada yada. . . " But last weekend, I realized I can feel good wearing makeup. It felt good knowing I am still being authentic to myself and proud of who I am, as a person, even with my lips painted red.

What I Wore: Sneakers With Ankara

So he asked me yesterday, "babe, what are we going to wear to Church tomorrow?" "I don't know. I think I'm going to wear those sneakers you got for me." And it happened.

Happy Sunday!

Ankara And Sneakers

WIW: Ankara and sneakers

You all know your girl loves loves loves Ankara fabric. And that love is not dying anytime soon. I planned to wear some of that to church today with the new pair of sneakers Kachi got for me.

I personally like to rock sneakers with pencil skirts, shirt dresses, flared skirts and chambray dresses.

The first rule for me was: Don’t let it be too casual or too short. We are trying to praise the Lord not raise curiousity! Amen?

The Thing That Art Can Do

I think I have a flair for photography somewhat. I know I enjoy being the focus of the camera, but recently, I figured out that I also like to be behind it. There is this joy that comes from seeing the killing smiles on the faces of those who have been shot. Pun intended.

This Art Thing

I love creative expressions. I am very much interested in expressing and exploring the basic human emotions such as joy, sadness, ecstasy and so on through art. I once shared how to express emotions through dance here. And many times, I've shared how I do same through writing as well as through fashion. Everything is art.

You may be asking, "what is art?"

This question pops up often, and comes with many answers. Many argue that art cannot be defined. Some say, the meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics. At least, that’s what Wikipedia claims.

Go The Extra Mile

Happy New Year, Sweethearts of my blogosphere! Welcome to 2020! Yeah! We made it! We made it into another year. God has indeed been faithful. It is by His mercy that we are not consumed. Hallelujah!

Word For Year 2020

Go the extra mile

"Happy New Year!" "Happy New Year!" I am literally screaming at the top of my voice. I just got back from the Cross Over service at my local church. Whoop!

It's astonishing how so many people troop into churches every December 31 just to shout 'Happy New Year'. . . even those that did not go to Church throughout the year. You know why? Because it is a Thanksgiving Celebration that we made it through the last year and a show of gratitude for what the Lord shall do in the New Year.

The New Year's Eve is very significant.

I'm grateful to God that I was among those who were able to jump, dance and shout "Happy New Year" at 00:00. It's the start of a new decade. Oh my!

Thank You, Jesus!
