Happy Birthday To The Love Of My Life, Igwe

Igwe

It's Igwe's birthday. Woot, woot!!! I think I had a post in my head, but now that I'm sitting in front of the computer, I don't know what to write. I'm just very grateful that Igwe's birthday is here again. I'm grateful to God for keeping him, for watching over him, for protecting him, for blessing and favoring him. The past year has been tough, but again, thank God for favor. I got Igwe some gifts that I know he will just LOVE. I hid them, but not too much because remember Igwe never Continue Reading

What I Wore To Girls’ Night Out

What-I-Wore-9

I recently went to girls' night out with Solachi, Funmie, Ibukun, and Tim, but that's not the girls' night out I'm talking about. I had another girls' night out with another group of girls. This one was with my work friends, Lisa, Tasha, Jemela, and Jennifer. Coincidentally, we had it at TGIF, too. No, I didn't pick the venue. As a matter of fact, it's mere coincidence that I have gone to TGIF twice in such short time. It happened on Saturday. We talked about how most of us are pretty much Continue Reading

Conversations With My Vietnamese Friend – Part 1

Vietnamese Friend

One thing I have always loved is learning about other people and their culture. I love talking with people who are not like me and finding things out that I probably would have never known. Yes, we can get information from text books and Wikipedia, but it cannot be compared to hearing it from the horse's mouth. Even within Nigeria, it's unfortunate how little we know about each other, except the stereotypes. I'm not saying the stereotypes are necessarily wrong, but they might be exaggerated, and Continue Reading

Why I Chose Ideal Image Laser Hair Removal

These are used for the actual treatment.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you're really, really late. But fear not, I am here to update you. I recently got my first laser treatment from Ideal Image about 3 weeks ago. It was my first time ever getting a laser treatment. I did it at Ideal Image located in Towson. It was an experience. A good one. Like I mentioned in my recap post, all treatments are administered by Registered Continue Reading

Gucci Now Has A Cosmetic Line

Gucci Luxurious Moisture Rich Lipstick-in Tiger Lily

Yup. Gucci has fallen in line and now has a cosmetics line that just launched this month. I personally do not currently own any Gucci item. I think I've had a perfume in the past, but I can't say for sure. Anyway, they have makeup now. I haven't seen the makeup in person, but I went through their eye shadows and lipsticks, and I picked out my favorite colors. By the way, I'm currently having a thing with lipsticks. I used to be a lip gloss girl, but oh, how the tides have turned. The lipstick Continue Reading

Dear Monica Lewinsky, About You Being Cyber-Bullied … Nah Uh.

Monica-Lewinsky-at-Forbes-30-Under-30-Seminar

Nah Uh. Nope. No. Net. Nahīṁ.  Mba. Monica Lewinsky who has been silent since the scandal 16 years ago (except her recent feature in Vanity Fair, which of course, I also blogged about). She was at the 30 Under 30 Summit held at Forbes in Philadelphia two days ago giving her first speech, and of all things to talk about, she chose cyber-bullying because according to her, she was Patient Zero, the first victim of cyber-bullying. Let's talk about some of her talking points. 1.  "Sixteen Continue Reading

Image source: Huffington Post

This is breaking news. I don't think there's a picture of him yet. Dominic Adesanya, 23, jumped over the White House fence. Here's how NBC Washington is reporting it: A Maryland man is in custody after jumping the White House fence Wednesday, just weeks after a similar incident prompted the director of the Secret Service to resign. Officials said around 7:15 p.m., 23-year-old Dominic Adesanya climbed the fence on the North Lawn and got about 20 yards past it when he was taken down by Continue Reading

What Does Isaac Mizrahi Have To Do With BAND-AID® BRAND?

BAND-AID-BRAND-4

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BAND-AID® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine. When I think of Isaac Mizrahi, I think of clothes and shoes and all things fashionable and stylish. And when I think of BAND-AID® BRAND, I think of cuts and scrapes. That was then. Now, they're both interchangeable. Thanks to Isaac Mizrahi's collaboration with BAND-AID® BRAND, I will never think of BAND-AID® BRAND adhesive bandages the same way again. These fashionable bandages hit the shelves Continue Reading

Black-ish is about a couple struggling to raise their Black children as ---- yes, Black children. They live in the suburbs, are upper middle class, and just don't have the same Black culture/lifestyle that they had Continue Reading

In Case You’ve Lost Track Of All The Recent Celebrity Divorces

Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo

I know that celebrities are always separating and divorcing, but for some reason, it feels like, there has just been so many separations and divorces recently. Usually, we hear about one divorce/separation, and then we have a couple months to talk about it before the next one, but now there are too many being talked about. I can't even put a post for each one. So in no particular order, here are the recent divorces and separations that I know of/remember. 1.  Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey: Continue Reading
