How Not To Ask A Blogger For A Favor

Blogger Tales

I can't say about other media-related jobs/careers, but when it comes to blogging, some people think that all it takes to blog is to wake up, scratch your butt, stroke a few keys on your keyboard, and voila! You're live. Well, no, that is not how it happens. I realize I have said this so many times, but I have to keep saying it. Verastic did not start as a business or a money-making blog, and I did not start out being a pro blogger or even trying to be a pro blogger. I just wanted to write. Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian In A See-Through Dress. Do We Like?


Recently, I have found myself being very attracted to see-through clothes. I can't wear them to work (without a camisole under), but when I'm not going to work, I wear the heck out of it. Not too much, but I do love it. Anyway, I saw pictures of Kim Kardashian in this see-through dress, and I just love it! I may not have the guts to wear see-through top to bottom, but maybe just the top. I don't know who made the dress, but it's beautiful, and Kim Kardashian wears it well. Maybe it's the Continue Reading

Gentlemen, Did You Put Your Cock In A Sock Yesterday?

Image source: Instagram

Funmie and I were getting our nails done when my nail technician showed me her Facebook feed. All I saw were naked men. Beautiful naked men. Beautiful naked men with their cocks in socks. Long story short, Instagram was very excited yesterday with pictures of men with their cocks in socks --- all to raise awareness for prostate cancer. What do cocks in socks have to do with prostate cancer? I don't know, but at the very least, it has me blogging about prostate cancer ... kind of. I will not Continue Reading

Ladies, Do You Actually Like Cooking?

My cozy kitchen

I can confidently say that I have a love-hate relationship with cooking. I cannot say that I dislike it, but I don't quite like it either. Basically, I enjoy experimenting and trying new recipes, and I have never eaten any food that I like better than the one I cooked myself, but there are just days months that I don't feel like cooking. I have shown you pictures of some of the foods I have cooked through my iCook series, and I enjoyed cooking every one of those meals. The only thing that has Continue Reading

It’s Vera vs Her Natural Hair: The Sexy, Curly Braids Edition

Lost hair. All lost.

Late last year, I wore my wig for a few months, and I did it because I wanted my natural hair to rest. I have told you several times how I have no idea what to do with my natural hair. I watch several videos on YouTube, and I try some of them, but it never ends up like it is in the video. Those people in the videos use some kind of juju, I tell you. But I digress. So I braided my hair in January, a couple days before my birthday, and it was beautiful. This particular kind of braids is my Continue Reading

My Parents Taught Me To Play

My Parents Taught Me To Play

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of New York Life. All opinions are 100% mine. Before I tell you a little bit about my life, I want you to first watch this video recorded by a grandson of his grandfather. His grandfather talked about God, women, money, art, and family. It's only a little over a minute, so watch and enjoy: My Grandfather One of the fun parts of being a child is being oblivious to the world around you. All you know is the world you live in, Continue Reading

Elijah Adeoye: He’s One Of Us, And He Needs Our Help


Funmie sent me this information. While I have never met Elijah, Funmie knows his personally. Funmie didn't tell me to put up this blog post, and I did not even tell her that I'll be putting up this blog post, so when she sees it, she'll do in usual Funmie fashion and call me to scream on the phone. Those of us who went to school here (or are still going to school here) know that the man called school loan is a beast and a freak of nature. Elijah wants to pursue a master's degree course in Continue Reading

iCook: Fried Stew + White Rice With Johnsonville Andouille Sausages

All chopped up and cooking

I cooked! You know I love making up new foods. Well this time, in honor of Mardi Gras (which is coming up!), I went for regular Nigerian fried stew with fully cooked Andouille Sausage from Johnsonville, which is one of their Split Rope Sausage flavors. This sausage, from Johnsonville, is unlike most other sausage in its category.To start,  it's fully cooked and packs great flavor but unlike most other fully cooked sausage, Johnsonville uses absolutely no fillers which is how their sausages get Continue Reading

I Failed. I Failed Woefully.

10 Days Of Selfie

Remember when no one sent me message but I still decided to start a 10-day Instagram selfie challenge? Well, I did it for all of 3 days ... and then, I don't know what happened. Igwe's brother has laughed at me tire. This is exactly what my mommy would call, "Trouble dey sleep, iyanga dey go wake am up." I didn't get the idea for this selfie challenge from anywhere. I didn't do it because I wanted to do what someone else was doing. Nah uh. It's like I just said to myself, "Vera, you've not Continue Reading

The State Of My Love Life – According To This

Bared To You - Sylvia Day

I don't even remember where I saw this thing, but I instantly saved it and promised myself to come back and do it, just to see what the state of my love life is. Who wouldn't want to know? I love doing these things. Now, to be completely honest, I didn't have a book next to me, as I am not currently reading any book (shame on me). I barely have enough time to blog as it is (and let's not even talk about writing my book. Yeah, that project isn't dead - yet), so reading, well, there's no real Continue Reading
