Moving on….

First things first…….

Happy new year in advance good people.

A big shoutout to everybody who has kept faith with this blog. It has been an amazing 2013. I can’t even begin to recount on here. It has just been wonderful, through it all.. To my 145 followers, those who stopped by to comment, those who just read, a BIG THANK YOU cuz without you, this blog won’t exist; considering the number of times I have thought to stop blogging. Ese pupo.

On to other things. As said earlier, I have overtime considered quitting. And yet keep coming back on here. So I have decided to…. stay on blogging BUT it would be more of other things. Like my journey to a healthy hair. I decided to take better care of my hair earlier this year and it was a rollercoaster experience. I failed on many fronts and discovered my major problem was accountability and not tracking my progress. So….. ya all would help me in 2014 right? And allow me use this blog to track yeah? Armed with my eroja (ingredients), I am ready to start this journey again. Be rest assured though, I ain’t shaving or going natural.

Oh and my journey to a fit, hawt body, my cooking adventure (as often as I have the time; I really miss not cooking in 2013), weddings and bridal shower stuff (I really need to start working on that) and a lotta other thingys. And I shall be stalking  and recommending a lotta other great blogs. For example, I shall be leaving those who haven’t found her yet with this and especially this post and this.

I am really excited about 2014. I just know and just know it is gonna be a very great year for me. I have no idea what God has in store yet still, it is just so amazing the kind of things I hear from people which just bear witness with my spirit. And I am sure it is going to be a great year for a lot of people.

Do have a lovely day and end of year people. And happy new year once again.

N.B: Let us remember Michael Schumacher in our prayers.

Ekele dili gï (I hope I got that right)

Sidenote: Am I the only one who loves to see a man who is crazy about his woman?

 

There is always…..

There is always something about a gown that makes a girl feel all so sexy and on top of the world

There is always that one person at family weddings that make you wish you didn’t attend

There is always something about seeing an artiste performing live that makes you just wanna scream (even if na DJ dey make d performance sweet)

There is always something about your fave rapper that even when he loses his voice performing you still wanna cheer him on

There is always something about rocking trads that makes one feel very responsible

That said, went to see Best Man Holiday and I must say it is an absolutely completely amazing movie. I love the way they captured the whole essence of Christmas in their own little way. God, the birth of Christ, family, friends, love, forgiveness, moving on…. The list is endless. Spoiler alert. If you aint seen it and you plan to, take enough tissue.

Funny bit. Came out of the cinema and a dude who was about to see the movie asks if I cried and I replied in the affirmative and he had this “ha, what am I getting into” look. Apparently he had seen a number of people coming out either still crying or sniffing or something. I aint a mushy person, I don’t do romcoms and all in the cinemas and really a few movies have moved me this close to crying but asides Titanic till today I had been able to control it. But wow, really, it was a touching and amazing end (hopefully) to the Best Man “franchaise”.

And Moris Chestnut and Taye Diggs..
*fans self* #blackmanlover #wellbuiltguylover #finefacelover #beautifulsmilelover #teamdarkskin #thatmorrischestnutbody #hissmiletoo #andtayediggs…. Ok I would quit talking about this movie. Too many emosh scenes.

Still yet to see Thor thanks to the friend who is too bush to wear 3D glasses.

The essence of it all is God, Family (and friends) and Work. Yeah I am so stealing that.

The way people do intros and engagements these days….. The kain moni ehn…..No comments.

Been a fun filled weekend. From office end of year party on Friday night to a wedding on Sunday to an engagement today…. And the week is even gonna be busier def… Hope ya all had a fun weekend sha. Deronk sure did. With all attendant stress.

Merry Christmas people and see you in the new year by God’s grace.

Good night lovies…. muah

Fall on your knees
O hear the angels voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh…

Let me be your royal….

First time I heard this song, I knew she was Grammy material. Not surprised she was nominated.

Don’t you just love the way she makes Queen Bee sound like “creepy”?

Naijawife asked a question earlier today on twitter. Paraphrased she asked if it is good for a Christian to give bribes… Over to you.

*Spoiler alert* If you are not up to date, skip 6 lines and continue after*

Scandal oh Scandal. Quinn finally found the trouble she was actively looking for ba? And Huck????!!!!!#####***** Arghhhhh. That first few minutes… I won’t lie… I almost wept…. That pain is real mehn….. The monster he is… Only Jesus can save….

And Sally been told to “drop her allegiance to Jesus and pledge it to politics… Bend your beliefs for the greater good”? *sigh* And Cy???? Risking your marriage to get at an opponent? REALLY??? How do people know when to draw the line whilst being very ambitious?

*Now you can continue reading*

Yayyy. Wedding season at its peak. Christmas and weddings…. Kent wait to rock my first igbo attire… Seems my mum’s friends dreams would come to pass soon (be like say sub-consciously I ended up sewing exactly the same style as in the post). And the many other attires… Falling in love with iro and buba. For someone who hated them, I seem to be sewing a lot of iro and buba these days.. From the traditional ones to the olekus to the knot wrappers to the stylish buba arms people sew nowadays…. Kent wait to rock ’em all.

That said, seems it is now insanity to have the right of way yet offer someone the opportunity to go before you. Or how do you explain allowing a car go through and the driver telling you “ori e o pe”- your head isn’t correct, Unfortunately, I couldn’t allow the opportunity to show her my head is correct to pass.

New blog alert (well maybe not new)… Sha I just found the blog

Hmmmm. Who blinks first? COSAN (or whatever the acronym is for these copyright musicians) and the broadcasting association.. Mehn, aint interesting to tune in to any radio station these days….

Now time to watch my boiz do their thing yo!!!!

RIP Madiba

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling but in rising everytime we fall- Nelson Mandela

*sigh sigh sigh*

I am not one to do this RIP stuff especially for popular people but *sigh* he has gone to rest.

I woke up to see the news on CNN and after confirming it aint a rumor like the other time, I head to facebook.
Why? In June or was it July when he was first rumored dead I saw Facebook statuses that made me angry. Now when someone decides to put up a status along the lines of South Africans should free Mandela to die after all he is old, I believe that individual should be flogged. And trust me, I saw a lot of such statuses.

Now if those statuses were a bit sensitive, I won’t have had a problem after all true true he was an old man. But when you ask a people who have seen hatred in its raw form, lived through hardship and had a “saviour” in such an insensitive manner, leaves a sour taste in the mouth. And as I said then, no matter how old someone is, you can never be ready to lose the person. Even if the person is 120 years.

I ask that people be a little sensitive and not make silly statements. If you can’t RIP or feel their pain, not commenting would make more sense. And if you don’t know who Mandela is, google is your friend. Or famzing about when you met him and putting up a picture not remotely close to Mandela.

Time to rewatch Sarafina and other apartheid movies. And Invictus. Different sides of a great man. And that SA trip must happen in 2014

End of an era. RIP Madiba. Sleep well Mandela. The world leader from Africa.

A good name is better than silver and gold. Always

Eat, Sleep, Get fat

Yelz. This babe is on leave!!!!!!!!! I would be lying if I say I aint excited. Like really!!! So all I gotta do for the remaining 9 days is eat, sleep, get fat. Ok add praying and reading and just generally staying indoors to it. Hehe. Don’t jealous me.

Moving on…. what is it with Kcee’s songs that initially you never like them. At least for me. All his songs always grow on me. Heard Pullover for the first time on Saturday and am like nah. And as it is with a new song or something new or something you suddenly notice, you start to see it or hear it everywhere. So between Saturday and today, I have heard that song at least 10 times…..
Pullover….. Park…. Reverse…..

What is in a name? Blogged about it once so not doing that again. This has to do with Scandal though. Yeah, bad habit. I must talk about Scandal.. so a friend (names withheld, you sha know it is you once you see this) puts up a pm about not naming her daughter Olivia because of Scandal. And I laughed.  I have had to change my daughter’s name (funny right, she already has a name and I never even marry not to talk of having a child) from Isabella because… I watched a Mexican soap once and Isabella was a witch. Years on, a friend too is giving stories about one Isabella witch… I sharperly found another name… Mba, not saying the name before you people find a reason why the name isn’t good.

Btw, Yoruba women are allowed to give their children names too right? Cuz it shall pain me after deciding on a name and I hear I aint allowed o.

*ding ding*

Christmas is coming, the turkeys are getting fat fat…..
Time to change my ringtones….

Leaving with these lyrics….. three of my favourite Christmas songs

Destiny’s child’s 8 days of Christmas

On the 8th day of Christmas my baby gave to me
A pair of chloe shades and a diamond belly ring
On the 7th day of Christmas my baby gave to me
A nice back rub and he massaged my feet
On the 6th day of Christmas my baby gave to me
A cropped jacket with dirty denim jeans
On the 5th day of Christmas my baby  gave to me
A poem that he wrote for me
On the 4th day of Christmas my baby gave to me
A candlelit dinner just for me and my honey
On the 3rd day of Christmas my baby gave to me
A gift certificate to get me favourite CDs (funny that’s how I found this song- story for another day)
On the 2nd day of Christmas my baby gave to me
The keys to a CLK Mercedes
On the 1st day of Christmas my baby gave to me
Quality TIME (I so need that right now)

Doesn’t it feel like Christmas? Sure it does. Christmas countdown baby!!!!!!

All around the world this Christmas – R Kelly

Hearing the bells go ding dong
Hearing the choir sing songs
Lettings us know its Christmas
Time for the world to spread love (must we always wait for Christmas though)
I open my eyes and to my surprise
I’ve come to realise that…
All around the world its Christmas. …

This Christmas – Chris Brown (there is a version by Joe, dunno which 1 I prefer)

Hang all the mistletoe
I’m gonna get to know you better
This Christmas
And as we trim the trees
How much fun it’s gonna be together
This Christmas

The fireside is blazing bright
We’re caroling through the night
And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me
Let’s go

As usual, doing this on my phone so can’t post the links. Do look them up though. Absolutely gorg songs.

I am still waiting for my “under the mistletoe” kiss……
