Show Of Hands If You Want To Pay Less For Your Cell Phone

Sprint

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprint. All opinions are 100% mine. Me, too!! I remember years ago when cell phone bills for just one line used to cost up to $100 per month, and that was without data. These days, cell phone carriers are trying to convince us to join them, and they have been quite convincing, but the craziest offer I have seen is the one from Sprint. Have you seen their ads on television? You know I'm an ad lover, so I've seen their ads Continue Reading

Butter Me Up And Call Me A Biscuit

Sweet-Corn-On-The-Cob-With-LAND-O-LAKES-Butter

When I was in Nigeria, there were only two ways I knew how to eat corn: roasted (called grilled in America) or boiled. With boiled corn, the only ingredient I knew to put on it was salt (while cooking). And it tasted good, honestly. But one day in America, I ordered some food at a restaurant, and I was asked what side I wanted it to come with. Corn on a cob was one of the options, so I ordered it. When the corn came with butter and black pepper on it, I was not too happy. But then, I tasted it, Continue Reading

What To Pack For A Blogging Conference

Inside my luggage

It's been over a month since I went for the BlogHer conference, and I'm still recovering. Most of the business cards I acquired are still tucked neatly in their box, yet to be explored. The BlogHer conference was my first blogging conference, so other than posts I read (like this one that you're currently reading), I didn't know much else. I was an unassuming newbie. My level has changed now. So it's your first conference and you're wondering what on earth to pack. I hope this list helps you. In Continue Reading

Why Men Can Never Find Things. Does Anyone Know?

Men

I remember my mom always complaining about my dad not finding things. She would accompany her complaints with a solid tufia kwa, which would be followed by a dramatic rise and drop of her shoulders. I didn't get it then, but now, I do. Igwe and I have been living together since 2011, and I'm finally starting to share my mom's sentiments. Igwe would go into a closet to pick up the biggest, brightest, most strategically placed item, and he would come back and say he did not find it. And I would Continue Reading

I Want The Laser Hair Removal From Ideal Image

The treatment room

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. Okay, remember in my last post I told you I was going for a consultation at Ideal Image? Well, before I went, I was still skeptical about the treatment. I knew I was interested, but I wasn't 100% there. My story has changed. My appointment was for 11:00 AM, and when I got there, the place looked different from what I expected. The lobby/sitting area had a spa feel to it, which was quite Continue Reading

Women Have Been Bitten By Snakes, But The Emmys Was A Rope

Sofia Vergara

I was one of the 16 million plus viewers who watched the Emmys on Sunday night, and I loved most of it. I love television. I love film. I want to be in both. And I love the award shows that celebrate the actors, their work, and the people that make them possible (writers, directors, producers, camera crew, etc). I watched Sofia Vergara come on stage and I laughed right along with her because I thought she was funny. And when she stood on the rotating pedestal and made sure to highlight her Continue Reading

Ladies, How Do You Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair?

Ideal Image

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. I'll always remember when I first started getting rid of the hair on my legs and my mom and aunt were acting like I was taking my organs out of my body. They insisted that leaving the hair was natural beauty, and I obviously thought differently. Coming from my mom, it was funny because the woman is practically hairless, so it was easy for her to say that. My aunt, on the other hand, was truly Continue Reading

My Name Is Vera Ezimora, And I’m Addicted To Walmart

Walmart

Help me! I'm kidding, I don't really want to be helped. I can no longer help myself. I live close to Walmart, less than a mile away, so access to Walmart isn't a problem. But I will not lie to myself or to you and say that access is what makes me go there. I just love Walmart. If it's available at Walmart, I'm buying it there. I only consider other options when it's not there --- or when I just can't bring myself to buy it from there. For example, I can't buy goat meat from Walmart. But I Continue Reading

Ladies, I Have Discovered A GLOWING Beauty Secret!

Conair-true-glow-Sonic-Skincare-Solution---4

Ladies, you know that beauty products make me weak in the knees. I haven't been to a beauty store for a while, and it's not because I don't want to go. No, it's because I DO want to go, but I am afraid of the kind of financial damage I will do to my pocket when I get there. But guess who came a-knocking on my door? Conair!!! I tell you, one day, this blog will have me doing a sleep over at the Obama's. So Conair is currently running a campaign called, Ready, Set, Glow. And the whole point Continue Reading

My Entire Thoughts On Boycotting Target

Altuzarra For Target (Image via Target)

I was online today doing some browsing when I saw a hashtag #BoycottingTarget and I had to find out why. So apparently, designer Altuzarra is collaborating with Target to release some pieces, but none of them go past a size 16. Therefore, the plus-size community is furious, reasonably. Disclaimer: I don't like the word plus-size, but I'm using it here because that's what they use. Maybe it's because I'm not in the fashion industry, but I tend to assume that not all brands will come in all Continue Reading
