Girls Just Wanna Have Fun


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. There are many big things that affect a girl's day and life, but there are also a lot of little things that make a whole lot of difference in a girl's life, and sometimes, those little things mean the most. For example, getting new lipstick will have me giddy for days! I'll smell it several times and apply it on my lips, even when I'm not going on, just so I can stare at myself in the mirror. And Continue Reading

With Buca Di Beppo, You Can Host Your Holiday Party Like A Boss!

Buca Di Beppo Italian Food

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo. All opinions are 100% mine. Even if you’re not the boss, you can still host your holiday party like one. Okay, here’s a secret: I have never attended an official Christmas party. It’s not really something that we [Nigerians] do in America (or maybe it’s just the Nigerians that I know?] And my job doesn’t do them either. I heard they used to do them before, but not anymore. I bought this burgundy pencil skirt that fits like a Continue Reading

So You Just Allowed A Yoruba Man To Carry You Away? She Asked Me

My man crush

I've always known that there is tribal tension among the tribes in Nigeria, but nothing has put it in perspective for me as much as being an Igbo girl married to a Yoruba man. Some of my [Igbo] people look at me like I'm crazy and naive for marrying a Yoruba man, and some of Igwe's [Yoruba] people look at him like he's some kind of god for being bold and strong enough to marry an Igbo  girl. Ah, Omo Igbo??? They treat him like he just told them that he'll be deploying to Iraq to fight the war Continue Reading

Holiday Gift Guide For Everyone In Your Life

Holiday Gift Guide

If you're lucky, you'll know everything you want to get for everyone in your life, and you'll know this early. Better yet, they'll tell you exactly what they want --- or give you hints at the very least. My 12 year old cousin, Toby did not give hints. He just told everyone his heart desires: Xbox One AND (not OR) an iPhone 6. These kids are becoming more and more expensive to maintain. But sometimes, it takes creativity and deep thought to come up with the perfect gifts for the people you Continue Reading

Guess Who Got Her Second Laser Treatment? This Girl!!!

The treatment room

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. Remember I told you that my next laser treatment was on December 8th? Well, December 8th was on Monday, and my appointment was at 7:40 PM. Coincidently, I was treated by the same nurse, Lindsay. I really like her. Because she treated me the first time, I built raport with her, so it wasn't a totally new meeting - not that that would have stopped me. Anyway, Lindsay did the treatment, and for Continue Reading

What I Wore To Our Wedding Photoshoot

These earrings might be my new favorite. Might be.

If the title of this post is totally confusing to you, it means you didn't read the post about our wedding. Or about our marriage. Or our union. Whatever you want to call it. But the post is here. Please read it. That said, although you have already seen all of what I wore in that post, I just really like doing these posts. I did not have a color code or theme, but I knew that I wanted Igwe to wear all black, and he obliged me. All I knew about my outfit was that I wanted a skirt. Everything Continue Reading

Beggars: To Help Them Or Not To Help Them


I'm a Nigerian who lived in Nigeria, so I am not new to beggars. Although it's not anyone's image of America, there are beggars here, too. Remember when I saw my former high school mate on the street begging? I have not forgotten that incident yet. It's like every other time I stop at Walmart, there's someone begging for something. I used to just indiscriminately give to anyone (if I had it) because there was no way for me to know if they were lying or not, and I figured it's God's business to Continue Reading
