The Best Time To Start Your Laser Hair Removal Treament Is Right Now

The-Classic-Bandeau

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. By now, I know that you (and the world) know that I'm receiving laser treatments for my bikini area. I cannot tell you how many people have asked me [off the blog] about my laser treatments. People want to know how it's going, how does it feel, how much does it cost, and when is the best time to start? All valid questions. First of all, I had no idea that so many people were interested in laser Continue Reading

About My Very First Thong

Purple lace thong

Do you remember your very first thong? I remember mine very clearly. I don't remember where I bought it from, but it was purple, and it was made of lace. I was about 18 0r 19, so my mom didn't know of the thong. I don't know what your mom was/is like, but my mom would have never approved of me owning a thong at that age. It was my one and only thong, so I loved it - as you can imagine. It was during this time that I learned - thanks to my friends - that I had a little booty behind me, so I was Continue Reading

Being Nigerian: The Sex Tape Edition

Scandal

Do you watch Scandal? This episode is inspired by Scandal. Well, during the episode, Like Father, Like Daughter (Season 4, Episode 4), the President's daughter, Karen filmed a sex tape with two boys. When her father found out, he wanted to know if she was forced, if she was raped, etc. She confidently said that she was not raped, and that she was alert the entire time and knew what she was doing. But when she spoke to her mom, her mom said (I'm paraphrasing) that she understood why she made the Continue Reading

Conversations With An American Boy: About The Kidnaps In Nigeria

Conversations-With-An-American-Boy

Living in a foreign land can be very very confusing. It can make you question every single thing you thought you knew. All your beliefs and values, they become unraveled, and all of a sudden, you're wondering how long you have been so ignorant. Or is this new foreign land just making you think you have been ignorant? Remember when I blogged about my conversation with my Vietnamese friend? By the way, I need to blog the second part of that conversation. I mentioned in the post about children Continue Reading

If You Were Beyonce, Would You Meet Your Half-Siblings?

Koi Knowles, Beyonce's Half Sister

Beyonce's dad has done it again. Another woman has come forward to tell the world that she, too, has a baby with Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, and the baby was conceived while he was still married to Beyonce's mom. This time, it's TaQoya Branscomb, a 30 year old "lingerie model" (for a vintage line that will be released in 2015) and a Realtor (who was once arrested for prostitution. But it was a mistake because she was only a "dancer").   TaQoya got pregnant in 2010, just Continue Reading

What Else Does Ideal Image Hair Removal Do?

Some of the free goodies you get when you do a treatment

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. A lot! I know I've been blogging a lot about the hair removal services that Ideal Image offers, but Ideal Image actually offers many, many services beyond hair removal. From tattoo removal to anti aging treatments, Ideal Image offers it all. I don't have a single tattoo on my body, but it isn't for lack of desire; it's because I am afraid, and yes, I'm a chicken. But if I did have a tattoo, Continue Reading

I Refuse To Tip For Bad Service

Receipt from TGIF, refused to tiip

It was only when I came to America that I knew about by-force tipping. In Nigeria, I remember my parents tipping, but it was more something that was expected from supposed "Big Men" and "Big Women," not just from everyone. Sometimes, they (the people giving the service) would stylishly ask for a tip, like they'd say something like, "Oga, anything for me?" But in America, when you go to a restaurant, you're expected to tip. Your receipt even shows you the suggested gratuity, based on the amount Continue Reading

The Case Of The Missing Vaseline

My dearly beloved Vaseline

First of all, if you're not Nigerian (or not African), then let me explain that yes, I know that what I am blogging about is called petroleum jelly and Vaseline is actually the brand, but as a Nigerian, I [we] call it Vaseline. Ehen, so I know I have mentioned somewhere on this blog about my obsession with glossing my lips (which is why I wake up in the morning with shiny lips). Whether it's lip balm, or lip gloss, or just good ol' "Vaseline," what matters is that my lips aren't chapped. In my Continue Reading

Ladies, Let’s Talk About Facial Hair

Jolen-2

I know everyone has hair on their face - technically - but there are levels to the hair, and I'm not talking about facial hair on men's faces. You know, hair (on all parts of the body) is something that I blog about often, so this shouldn't be new. Unwanted hair, unfortunately, is a thing. I don't have unwanted hair on my face because I barely have hair anywhere. And that's why the hair on my head isn't long or full either. I just don't have it. I know people do different things to get rid Continue Reading

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
