Ladies, How Do You Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair?

Ideal Image

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. I'll always remember when I first started getting rid of the hair on my legs and my mom and aunt were acting like I was taking my organs out of my body. They insisted that leaving the hair was natural beauty, and I obviously thought differently. Coming from my mom, it was funny because the woman is practically hairless, so it was easy for her to say that. My aunt, on the other hand, was truly Continue Reading

My Name Is Vera Ezimora, And I’m Addicted To Walmart


Help me! I'm kidding, I don't really want to be helped. I can no longer help myself. I live close to Walmart, less than a mile away, so access to Walmart isn't a problem. But I will not lie to myself or to you and say that access is what makes me go there. I just love Walmart. If it's available at Walmart, I'm buying it there. I only consider other options when it's not there --- or when I just can't bring myself to buy it from there. For example, I can't buy goat meat from Walmart. But I Continue Reading

Ladies, I Have Discovered A GLOWING Beauty Secret!


Ladies, you know that beauty products make me weak in the knees. I haven't been to a beauty store for a while, and it's not because I don't want to go. No, it's because I DO want to go, but I am afraid of the kind of financial damage I will do to my pocket when I get there. But guess who came a-knocking on my door? Conair!!! I tell you, one day, this blog will have me doing a sleep over at the Obama's. So Conair is currently running a campaign called, Ready, Set, Glow. And the whole point Continue Reading

My Entire Thoughts On Boycotting Target

Altuzarra For Target (Image via Target)

I was online today doing some browsing when I saw a hashtag #BoycottingTarget and I had to find out why. So apparently, designer Altuzarra is collaborating with Target to release some pieces, but none of them go past a size 16. Therefore, the plus-size community is furious, reasonably. Disclaimer: I don't like the word plus-size, but I'm using it here because that's what they use. Maybe it's because I'm not in the fashion industry, but I tend to assume that not all brands will come in all Continue Reading

My Neighbor, Tatiana Won’t Leave My Window!

Tatiana's Car

Remember my neighbor, Tatiana? I blogged about her here. I thought she was mad before, but now I'm convinced that she is really, really mad. First of all, our apartment has a front and a back section. We live in the front section, overlooking the parking lot, while Tatiana lives in the back section, overlooking nature. Everyone parks in front, as does Tatiana. Her car barely ever leaves its spot. At first, I thought I just happened to notice the car only after it had been driven (and Continue Reading

“You Look Like American…” What Does That Mean These Days?

Sitting outside church. It was cold!

I was at Walmart the other day staring too long at the travel mugs, trying to decide which one to get for Igwe. There was a Walmart employee next to me, arranging water bottles and mason jars .  I had not paid too much attention to her until she started singing a familiar gospel tune. That was when I looked at her. It was one of those old praise and worship songs that we grew up listening to in Nigeria. She looked to be in her late thirties, but she was probably older. She had a youthful glow Continue Reading

I Hope This Touches Something In You: Vouch Only For Yourself

Robin Williams

Long before Funmie and I met our respective partners, I remember Funmie used to wish to have her relationship be like this couple or that couple, and I always used to say, I just want my relationship to be like mine. I said this because I did not know what was really going on in anyone's relationship behind closed doors. Years later, I especially believe in this. Yesterday, I mentioned in my post how sad and shocking it was that Robin Williams killed himself, but later in the day, I watched Continue Reading

I Don’t Feel Like Doing This, And Robin Williams Is Dead

Robin Williams

Do you ever go through days/times when you just don't feel like doing  anything? That's exactly how I feel right now. My blog has suffered! I feel like a stranger on here right now because it's been since last week that I last put up a post. And I'm only typing a post right now because it has been so long that it's outright crazy. Although I slept on time last night, and although I woke up late yesterday morning, and although I fell asleep in the middle of the day yesterday (and later went to Continue Reading

How Bud Light Lime Took My Beer Virginity

It just wouldn't be complete if it did not hang out on the balcony

Igwe and I are fond of going to random eateries, just to try it out. Even in our neighborhood, we can no longer order pizza and wings from the same place because our perfect pizza shop does not have the perfect wings, and our perfect wings shop does not have the perfect pizza. Most times, we don't order both the wings and the pizza anyway, but in the rare events that we do, we have to drive to two places to pick our food up. So it was in one of our random bar hops that I discovered Bud Light Continue Reading

How To Soften Wrinkles And Fine Lines In 90 Seconds!


Yes, 90 seconds. While I may not have wrinkles and fine lines yet and so cannot testify to the frustration of finding (or not finding) the right products, what I can definitely testify to is the frustration in finding the perfect product because there are just too many. And, of course, every one promises they're the best. But if I were using a serum for wrinkles and soft lines, I would want it to work immediately because who wants to grow more wrinkles while trying to soften the already Continue Reading
