Curves Need Love, A Plus Size Tankini Shows Your Assets

Plus Size Swimmingsuit

Shopping for plus-size swimwear at your local department stores can be extremely frustrating. There’s a limited amount of styles for anyone who isn't exactly a size four and the salespeople are often clueless about how to dress a plus size figure. Add that to the fact that swimwear is only available in the peak summer months, and you might as well stay home. If you've ever found yourself sad and discouraged while wrestling with an ugly outdated swimsuit in a department store changeroom, there Continue Reading

Do You Kiss With Your Morning Breath?

Morning Breath

Something I have noticed on television is how couples wake up in the morning and start kissing. I'm not talking about just a little peck on the lips, but like full blown kissing, tongue and all. I know that on television, they don't actually have bad breath cause they're just acting. But it makes me wonder, are there people who wake up and swap spit with their spouse? Yuck. I wish you could see my face as I type this post. As you may have guessed already, I do not kiss in the morning! I Continue Reading

The Thing About Being Igbo Is That I’m Not Yoruba

Couple Silhouette

I'm Igbo. Have I told you that before? Probably. Igwe, my husband, is Yoruba. By the way, this might be the first time I have referred to Igwe as "my husband" in a blog post. Aaarrrggghh. So weird. Yes, we've been three years married, but it's still so. darn. weird. Fine girl like me, how can I be referring to someone as my husband? Anyway, the difference in our tribes has never been more obvious to me --- until now that I'm married. Between Igwe and me, we don't ever remember that we come Continue Reading

Suffering From Writer’s Block

Writer's Block

I feel bad that I didn't put up a post yesterday, and I feel worse because yesterday was Monday. I am so unmotivated right now. All I want to do is stay in bed and stare at the ceiling. I don't want to write. I don't want to read. My to-do list has been getting longer because I have not been scratching anything off.   This past Saturday, I woke up at about 11:00 AM, ate a mango, spoke to Solachi on the phone for a while, and then slept till almost 5:00 PM. I didn't eat dinner till Continue Reading

Ladies & Gentlemen, Igwe And I Are Now God Parents!

Baby Amaka Ezimora

I am so freaking excited right now. Well, I've been excited for the past week since Solachi had a baby and we became god parents. I couldn't mention the pregnancy on the blog because Solachi warned me to never, ever mention on the blog or on social media that she's pregnant. Our baby finally came on Wednesday, March 11th 2015, weighing a little over six pounds, and two days ago (March 18th), we celebrated my baby's naming. I won't even bother telling you her official names because what matters Continue Reading

If Moses Was American In 2015


Remember I told you that Igwe and I have been reading the bible and I have so much to blog about. We're currently on the book of Numbers, and this book is true to its name. So many numbers. Anyway, I want to talk about Moses today. As you may know, at some point in Moses's life, he killed an Egyptian and Pharoah wanted him dead, so he flew to another country (don't remember the name now). Anyway, while in this other country, God appeared to him in the form of a burning bush and told him to go Continue Reading

5 Date Night In Ideas With Your Significant Other

Sex Box on WEtv

This post brought to you by WE tv. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Verastic. Going out wit your boo is great, but staying in can be just as great. Staying in, however, to spend time with each other is absolutely different from staying in because you need to catch up with work, or because you don't want to be tortured by going out with him/her. I have met and heard about couples who don't necessarily want to spend all day with each other, and as long as that works for Continue Reading

Dear Vera, I’m Sleeping With My Ex-Husband


Dear Vera, I have been sleeping with my married ex husband. He knows I'm in love with him, but he doesn't seem to want to leave his wife. Could he really care about me like he claims, or would he have not cheated with me if he wanted to spare my feeling? __________________________________________________________________ Dear Sweet Potato, Thank you for your Dear Vera mail. Ironically, your mail/question is the easiest one I have had to answer recently. My dear, your married ex husband Continue Reading

How To Have A Full Time Job While Being A Full Time Blogger

RESCUE Pastilles

One of these days, I'll only have one job, and I'm sure you can guess what job that would be. Until then, I have a full time job, and I am still a full time blogger. I know I'm not alone. The luckiest ones of us don't have to deal with having a 9 to 5 job while still blogging. On some days, my to-do list is so long that I feel like tearing my hair off my scalp. Sometimes, I fall behind on replying comments, and I promise you, I do not do it on purpose at all. My 9 to 5 job is done mostly from Continue Reading
