A Merry Wedding Dayyyy

I went for a wedding last weekend with my mum...............lovely woman, i look like my dad sha*wink*
she got me this dress, i burnt it with an iron but she fixed it for me.....i really need to learn how to sew fast.
My Mum does a great job with clothes.......but i did a great job with that gele. abi???

Hello everyone merry christmas to y'all................................
i want to share my high and lows of my nysc camp with you.
last month i was in camp getting orientation for a one year compulsory service year........My first time in the north or north central.....*whatever*
You know that feeling you have when you go somewhere you've never been before, fear and excitement all at once.
I got there early enough to meet with the parade test by soldiers, my name was written down sha...*winks* but you don't want this if you can't deal with standing under the sun for long hours, parading.
i was smart enough to pack well, making sure that everything fitted into one big bag........after the parade test, the soldiers asked me to carry my bag on my head..............that was not fun, but since my bag was not so big and heavy i could do that without much trouble.
Note: Pack lightly for NYSC CAMP, the drills at the gate on the first day is not always funny especially under the sun....*straight face*


Hello everyone, inakwana????? antashi lafiya!!!
Menene sunanki!!!!!!(hausa languague)
okay don't ask me what it means oh cuz i'm still learning......
The weather conditions in my new location are extreme, too hot or too cold, but in all i rejoice..

Christmas is here again, time to worship, adore and give thanks to a loving God.......His love for me and you can never be measured...
I pray everyday that i will fully understand and grasp how high, wide, long and deep God's love is for me......oh and may that day not tarry.....cuz it comes with power and freedom.

I have lot's of reasons to celebrate and in celebrating there has to be giving and receiving..
this is my first public wishlist and it's going to be really simple and affordable...It's coming early so i won't get excuses, santa is just preparing his bag of goodies so pick one item here and drop it with him, so he'll deliver it on time.......*serious face*

Hello everyone, in our last class we talked about.................who can remember???? *sees plenty hands* oh okay it seems everyone attended. if you did not, go to this room and we'll wait for you.......................
Are your shoes shining??? Yupppppppppppppppppppppp. Perfect.

The Natural Hair Meet up in Calabar was a success, i was a vendor representing sizzelle.....So i missed out on the lectures, could not take lot's of pictures, infact i'll gist all about it later.

I did a BIGGGGGGGGGGGG HAIRRRRR CHOPPPPPP....after my last post you'll know why i did it.
All i have to do now is spray water on my hair before i comb it....... focus now is to get my scalp healthy, no sores or dandruff.
if you have any tip please share it.


*Walks into the room with a sad face*
Hi, beautiful ones!!!
I've been having scalp issues but ignored it many times, i just felt it was the protective style that gave me the aches and pains.....but now i can't even touch my scalp.
There was a time i used Methylated Spirit to clean my scalp to stop the itching......
My scalp itches badly and it so painful....i did a little research to find a cure for the trouble I've been facing. This is what i found:

Why does the Scalp Hurt?
1. Harsh chemicals 
2. Fungal infection
3. Bacterial infection
4. Viral infection
5. Fungus tinea
6. Psoriasis
7. Chemotherapy
8. Muscle contraction headache
9. Excessive scalp oil
10. Contact dermatitis
11. Stress
12. Other causes

Remedies for Scalp Hurt
1. Avoid products that contain sodium laurel sulfate

Happy New Month

You can only feel free if you've been bound,tight and confined to a particular position.
A parrot that has suddenly gone quiet.
A peacock whose beauty cannot be seen anymore.
You can only give thanks if you know what it means to give or be in lack.

Success is not measured by how many labelled dresses you have or the number of zero's in your account.
Being true to your self, doing what your passionate about, appreciating the simple things in life and walking in the ways of your creator is SUCCESS.

Many times i feel like shutting the doors of my life and being alone, or pausing time or life just to have a quiet moment away from the voice of failure ringing in my head, social media, society etc.

i can only be brave and BRAVE I WILL BE because in the end it was never about others but meah.


Ladies, get into the house i have something to tell ya'll.............................................
YOUR PRICELESS, yep you are and believe it..
You know how difficult it is for you to decide on what to wear before you step out of the house every morning......frustrating right???
and for the jewelry lovers, it can be more difficult to make a choice fast before 8 am.

 Well have i ever told you how gorgeous your eyes are????
You think i'm not seeing them, well i work in a computer firm and i can see through computer screens especially now that your reading this post>>>>>>> lol.....okay that's just to make you smile and probably laugh.....hahahahahaha.
Thank you so much for encouraging me on my last post, i appreciate all the comments....Tanchu :)

Before i spill,*and by the way i'm just trying to keep you here for more than 5 minutes, i hope it

Hello everyone!!!
Special announcement!
In collaboration with Natural Nigerian, I’m happy to invite you all to Calabar’s first natural hair meet-up, ‘Natural in Paradise’:)
Join us at Bay’s Bar & Lounge on Saturday,18th October, 2014 for healthy hair talk, natural hair products, networking & lady bonding!
Save the date, this will be so much fun!


Hi friends it's time for serious talk......
Everyone of us will agree that between this age so many things had happened to us, things we are so proud of and some we don’t wish to ever remember in life….
Puberty happens, hormones rise and fall as they wish, leaving us moody or excited…..in trying to understand why those little breast are growing so big, hairs growing out of your armpit and pubic regions, you either seek knowledge from your parents, teachers or friends.
What ever information given, whether right or wrong builds the foundation of your life.
If your above 29, check your life what information did you receive when you were 16??? Did it affect  your life as an adult now???
YES!!! Right???
You were told it’s okay to have sex, after all your friends are doing it?? Abi??? Or you learnt how to get what you want in life, it does not matter how you get it??? Were you assured of how awesome you are, how talented and gifted you are and how great things are going to come out of your life???
Life as a young person, Living as a young person, Making choices, depression, self esteem, quality of life

I wish I struck a balance…

 So through University, I was a self imposed geek, who focused only on getting good grades. You know, the guy that did not want to slip on grades, wanted to sit on the front row all of the time, wanted to always be up to par with Academics, in fact lets just say the guy who
wanted to carry first J. But upon finishing University and coming out in 2012, I realized that I kinda wasn’t fulfilled, my social life was
kinda (pardon my Term) FUCKED up, as I did not date, club nor taste Alcohol throughout my 5 years in University. Mehn the night I signed off yeah, I DID THINGS! And people were like What?? Duru? Nahhhh Thismust be a dream, and I was like Lobatan. Lmao. :P

Hello beautiful people.
Happy New Month Every one!!!!
May your desires be granted and peace your companion in Jesus Name Amen.

I found this article and thought i should share.
You see i started being so conscious of the effects of Make-up products on my skin, especially when Toin shared this post with me.
So  i went digging and found  something.

 Lead in Makeup – How to Test for Lead in Makeup

What is Lead?

Lead is a harmful heavy metal commonly used in construction, weights, bullets, batteries, fusible alloys and many more. After a certain point of contact, it becomes poisonous to both humans and animals. It causes a variety of disorders and diseases relate to the blood, brain and nervous system. Out of all the stable elements, lead has the highest atomic number.


Hi, hello, how are you today??
This post is a review and a flaunt of what i won from African Naturalista.
First the review:

Queen helene, body moisturizer, Cocoa butter, Hand and Face Lotion, Skin care, Beauty

I bought this lotion from Sparks shop at Etta Agbor opposite Unical small gate for 1400 Naira.

It's light weight.
comes with a pump, but yet i still have to turn it upside down before i can use it.
 it dries fast when i apply it on my skin, and minutes after i'll start sweating. (i don't know why that happens)
I use it on my face as a moisturizer before using a Primer.


Hi, dear reader
How are you today?
i hope the day is not too hard on you.
Today is one of those day's where i struggle to make it to the end of the day with a smile.
Am i alone in this world? the world of sad days and no excitement......i guess not.

Because i feel this way i just thought i should encourage someone else who's having a rough time like me.

 We all have plenty reasons why we slide into Sad and Unhappy moods but the power to get out lies within us.
Remembering past hurts and thinking of future hurts and failures keeps you negative and unhappy.
Allowing everything and anything to steal your joy.


Hi, just Popping in to say Uh Uh Uh (in the voice of Maria).
I've been behind the scenes reading blogs, enjoying what everyone has to share and changing my blog layout ( not sure if  i can stop doing that). Do you like it???

I'm GRATEFUL, Kisses to you and a big cyber HUG.
Well i just added these items to my beauty rack.

Milk of Magnesia as Primer (N 1800 at a Pharmacy on Marian Road after Atekong Junction, Calabar)

As you sit here reading this, pause and expand your awareness beyond your computer/phone … what is the reality of this moment?
You’re reading, and there are a bunch of other tasks you want to do on your computer, yes … but there’s also your body. How does that feel? There’s the area around you, perhaps some people around you. There’s nature nearby.
Take a pause to become aware of the actual reality of this particular moment.


Hi Bestie, how are you?
