My Weekend Recount: Faith’s Wedding In Pictures

At last, a picture of Faith and her husband

This weekend, like all weekends, went by so fast. In addition to that, I was so busy. Doing my hair for two days took a chunk out of my time. I didn't even get my nails done till Saturday. I usually do it on Thursdays because everyone else is there on Friday and Saturday. In case you haven't seen it yet, here's my post about what I wore to the wedding, and here's my post about how I did my hair AND how my hair got me Chinedu's number --- technically. Friday: I attended a stage play in the Continue Reading

Thanks To My Hair, Chinedu Wants My Number


Remember when I went to Faith's wedding? Of course, you remember, the post went up only yesterday. Thank you for the compliments on the hair. I have received so many compliments on and offline. Just yesterday, someone said to me, "Oh, you finally decided to wear your hair down, it's beautiful." She thought it was my natural hair, and I just couldn't break her heart by telling her the truth. Ha! Okay, so my hair was done via crochet braiding, and it was done by my sister-in-law, Nyambe. She's 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

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

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

Dear Kate, At The Very Least, Let Me Model Your Underwear


I've been meaning to blog about this since I read it last month, then a couple days passed, but according to my calender, it's been a whole month. No idea how that happened. It's about the Dear Kate underwears, and if you know anything about me, you know I love underwears. My regular stay-at-home outfit is a t-shirt, an underwear, and no bra. Read my underwear-related posts here. Anyway, Dear Kate did the unthinkable. They recruited real women to be the models in their new lookbook for their Continue Reading

About Last Weekend: I Was So Lazy!

We were waiting for our table at Chili's

Happy Monday, Sweet Potatoes! I don't know what happened to me this past week, but I was so flipping lazy. I literally slept for most of the time. I'd wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, and go back to bed. Before I know what's going on, it's past 3:00 PM. That was how my week went. I can't tell you what I accomplished. And the irony is that I had so much to do. Instead of doing anything, I'd think f all I had to do and my solution would be to go back to bed. It was like why do today what Continue Reading

Why Men Can Never Find Things. Does Anyone Know?


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

My Neighbor, Tatiana Won’t Leave My Window!

Tatiana's Car

Remember my neighbor, Tatiana? I blogged about her here. I thought she was mad before, but now I'm convinced that she is really, really mad. First of all, our apartment has a front and a back section. We live in the front section, overlooking the parking lot, while Tatiana lives in the back section, overlooking nature. Everyone parks in front, as does Tatiana. Her car barely ever leaves its spot. At first, I thought I just happened to notice the car only after it had been driven (and Continue Reading

“You Look Like American…” What Does That Mean These Days?

Sitting outside church. It was cold!

I was at Walmart the other day staring too long at the travel mugs, trying to decide which one to get for Igwe. There was a Walmart employee next to me, arranging water bottles and mason jars .  I had not paid too much attention to her until she started singing a familiar gospel tune. That was when I looked at her. It was one of those old praise and worship songs that we grew up listening to in Nigeria. She looked to be in her late thirties, but she was probably older. She had a youthful glow Continue Reading
