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


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

I Hope This Touches Something In You: Vouch Only For Yourself

Robin Williams

Long before Funmie and I met our respective partners, I remember Funmie used to wish to have her relationship be like this couple or that couple, and I always used to say, I just want my relationship to be like mine. I said this because I did not know what was really going on in anyone's relationship behind closed doors. Years later, I especially believe in this. Yesterday, I mentioned in my post how sad and shocking it was that Robin Williams killed himself, but later in the day, I watched Continue Reading

I Don’t Feel Like Doing This, And Robin Williams Is Dead

Robin Williams

Do you ever go through days/times when you just don't feel like doing  anything? That's exactly how I feel right now. My blog has suffered! I feel like a stranger on here right now because it's been since last week that I last put up a post. And I'm only typing a post right now because it has been so long that it's outright crazy. Although I slept on time last night, and although I woke up late yesterday morning, and although I fell asleep in the middle of the day yesterday (and later went to Continue Reading

How Bud Light Lime Took My Beer Virginity

It just wouldn't be complete if it did not hang out on the balcony

Igwe and I are fond of going to random eateries, just to try it out. Even in our neighborhood, we can no longer order pizza and wings from the same place because our perfect pizza shop does not have the perfect wings, and our perfect wings shop does not have the perfect pizza. Most times, we don't order both the wings and the pizza anyway, but in the rare events that we do, we have to drive to two places to pick our food up. So it was in one of our random bar hops that I discovered Bud Light Continue Reading

TV Show To Watch: Tyrant On FX

Tyrant on FX

If you enjoy watching shows like Homeland, or if you enjoy watching movies like Taken, then you'll probably love Tyrant. It's set in the Middle East, in a fictional country called, Abuddin. The main character is Bassam "Barry" Al-Fayeed, the son of a dictator who fled to America for 20 years and now returns home (with his family, wife and two kids) for his nephew's wedding. While there, his father passes away, and his older brother, Jamal Al-Fayeed becomes President. Things just continue to get Continue Reading

We Finally Watched Mimi’s & Nikko’s Sex Tape

Mimi and Nikko

Igwe and I started watching Love & Hip Hop a while ago, and I blogged about it HERE. We haven't watched it consecutively since then because for some reason, we just don't usually remember to watch it. I don't know how many episodes we've missed since the blog post, and I know for sure that we have not seen most episodes because we only just started. I'm saying all these to disclaim that I may not have the best or most information about Mimi and Nikko, so if I am wrong, please correct me in Continue Reading

TV Show To Watch: American Greed

American Greed on CNBC

You know how much I love television, right? Well, since I'm always recommending all kinds of shows to people off the blog, I figured I might as well do it here, too. Just in case you're one of those people who would watch everything on television if you could, here's a show you might find interesting. Igwe and I recently discovered American Greed. It's kind of like a documentary. It's an hour long show that tells you details about "great" scammers and fraudsters. It also tells how they Continue Reading

Wedding On Verastic: Tosin & Mohammed

Wedding On Verastic: Tosin & Mohammed

Our Sweet Potato, Tosin has married the love of her life, Mohammed, and she's sharing pictures from her special day with us. This is a picture-heavy post, and I love it. I stared at Tosin's and Mohammed's pictures over and over. They just look so --- so --- real and happy. You know what I mean? I don't want to make this post longer by typing on and on, so let's just read their story, in Tosin's words. We had our Introduction in November 2013 before he Proposed (which is outside the norm and was Continue Reading

But despite having some idea about what it is, you may still have some questions – especially if you yourself are interested in fighting back against the detrimental effects time can have on your skin.
