Ladies & Gentlemen, I Have Officially Had My First Laser Treatment


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. Remember last week when I told you that I'll be getting a laser treatment? I bet you thought I was joking. Well, I wasn't. I got it done on October 4th. It was a Saturday morning and my appointment was at 9:30 AM. I got there about 10 minutes early. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down to fill out the medical history form. Jacqueline was there to welcome me. I met her during my free Continue Reading

He Said He Wants To Marry Me

Chiwetel Ejiofor: He's not the one who wants to marry me, but I need a picture to associate with this post ... plus a girl can dream, no?

I was speaking to my mommy yesterday and she told me that an interesting thing happened. I asked her what it was and she told me that a man from Umunze (I think it's in Anambra) came to speak to her. He told her that his very good friend wants to marry me. I didn't hear what my mom said, or maybe I didn't want to believe that I heard what she said, so I kept asking, "He wants to marry who?" I asked her this question four times until  mom was practically screaming, "You!" She repeated, "He wants Continue Reading

Ladies, How Do You Grow Your Hair?


From the moment I started consciously reading more about natural hair and growing it and maintaining it, I have been hearing about Hairfinity. Outside of the blogosphere, people who know I'm a blogger continue to ask me what I think about Hairfinity. Just to be clear, Hairfinity isn't only for natural hair. For those who have never heard of or don't know enough about Hairfinity, Hairfinity is a nutritional supplement formulated with essential nutrients for healthy hair. This hair Continue Reading

Pre-Wedding Feature: Angela & Kenna


Another Sweet Potato is getting married. There is definitely love in the air! When I hear/read of a Sweet Potato getting married, I get all giddy as if I'm part of the wedding, and I guess with posting pictures here, I kind of am part of the wedding. Today's Sweet Potato is Angela. Her fiance is Kenna, and they live right here in Maryland. Their wedding is on August 29th 2015 and I can hardly wait! Yes, I know it's not my wedding, but a girl is allowed to be excited. Usually, when I ask a Continue Reading

The treatment room

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. Remember when I put up the post about wanting to get the laser treatment from Ideal Image for my bikini? I bet you thought I was just joking, right? Well, I wasn't. It's set up, and I'm doing the darn thing. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I've never had a laser treatment before, but I am looking forward to the final result. There are two things that scare me most: (1) What kind of Continue Reading

About Last Weekend: Girlfriends Are Forever (Lots Of Pictures!)

Left to right: Funmie, Tim, Solachi, Me, and Ibukun

This past weekend, I finally got to hang out with my girls. You may disagree with me, but I believe that having good friends is essential. We had been talking about hanging out for like over a year, but we finally got around and did it. Before we hung out, our friend, Tim fell ill and that scared the pants off of us. I don't have the words to say how happy I was to be sitting across from Tim. Our date was set for 7pm. We were supposed to get dinner at TGIF and then go watch 'This Is Where Continue Reading

George Clooney And Amal Alamuddin Need A Lesson On Weddings

George Clooney and Alma Alamuddin

It's been called the "wedding of the year" for good reason. The most eligible bachelor - who has also openly stated that he doesn't ever want to be married - actually met a woman that he couldn't leave. Their wedding was in Venice this past weekend with about 90 guests. Amal looked absolutely beautiful in all her dresses (perhaps a separate post about her outfits), and George Clooney wore custon Georgia Armani. Yes, he looked good, but it was all about the bride.   That being Continue Reading

20 Random Facts About Me (Tagged By Sisi Yemmie)


Darling Sisi Yemmie did the 20 random facts about me tag and she tagged me. Who am I to not deliver? I've done tags before, but it's been so long since I last did one. Sisi Yemmie, thank you for the tag, and whatever I write here, know that you asked for it. 1.  I've been keeping a big secret from you, Sweet Potatoes. But I have decided that I will tell it before the end of the year. I'm tired of keeping it. No, I will not give hints! 2.  I'm an undercover rebel. Sometimes, my only Continue Reading

iCook: Pasta With Johnsonville Smoked Brats (Fall Comfort Food)

Really up close and personal: Pasta With Johnsonville Smoked Brats.

What kind of food do you think of when you hear fall comfort food? I think of cheese, soup, tomatoes, maybe bread, but all definitely warm. Or hot. I blogged about using Johnsonville sausages before, but in that post, I cook some [fried] stew with sausages, instead of the more traditional goat meat, beef, or chicken. And in that post, I used the Andouille sausage instead. Well, it's a new day, and fall is a-coming. My original thought was to cook some hearty vegetable soup and switch out the Continue Reading

It’s Friday, But Thank Goodness It’s Thursday!


Did you watch television yesterday? No, really, did you??? Specifically, did you watch abc at 9:00 PM --- or 8:00 PM, if you're about that life? Yesterday was fire on abc. It started with Grey's Anatomy at 8:00 PM. I can't tell you how great the show is because I don't follow it. I know it's great, and I know the general story line, but I have missed so much of it that I don't know how to start it now. But at 9:00 PM, my BFF Kerry Washington came back as Olivia Pope on Scandal. I'm Continue Reading
