Liking: how 2016 went. Probably in the typical Nigerian "We-thank-God" way, but something deep down tells me there's more  to why I loved 2016 Cooking: Shrimped Fried Rice for New Year's day. Hopefully Looking: for pictures / quotes for the decorative frames that have hung empty on my parlor wall for the past one year Wearing: a pink sweater, a pink shirt, black slacks and purple matte lipstick. Sweater, because harmattan. Purple lipstick I wear everyday because, habit. Pink - I hate pink. Waiting: for June 30, 2017. Finally, I will be able to breath. Admiring: the weirdness called "Christina Yang" in Grey's anatomy. It's ok to be the unconventional girl or the one that comes across as cold and too driven. it's ok to like that girl too. Looking:…

The picture that comes to mind is a piece of wall art - made of stone mosaic, thick patterns, and delicate paint; each piece of pebble, a streak of pattern and a swab of paint, imperfectly forming the underlying image.It's not entirely smooth, neither is it perfectly formed. You may even struggle to see the exact picture that the stones come together to represent. But it's art and it's very costly! The value cannot be estimated. Unfortunately, these stones carry no ID; these patterns seem very random. They are all unique but can't be figured out individually. Their representation and effects can, however, can be seen in the art image eventually formed. Our lives are built by the people in it - the people we let in conscious or unconsciously; Much like…

Hoping: that I'm not too late; that I'm not too in a hurry; that I'm not too blind to see; that I do not too caught up doing the wrong things and ignoring the right things. Nothing beats missed opportunities. Timing is very major. Wearing: Black and Beige in Blazers, Shawl, Camisole, Pants and Shoes. My love for neutrals though. That isn't changing anytime soon. At times I feel like I look the same way  everyday, adorned in my blacks, whites, beige, browns, greys and navy blues Drinking: Coke. I need to get rid of this bad habit for real. Staring: at a mug of tea, stained with my deep purple lipstick. Wondering: when basic necessities such as electricity, internet access, fuel and the "good life" became such a luxury in this part of the world.…

Happy New Year! That took me all of 91 days! Whew! It's been an amazing 91 days all the same. Days, weeks and months have gone by in 2016 and I am beyond grateful for everything that has come my way this year. I particularly love love love April (Duh! it's my birth month). I don't really make so much of a big deal about my birthday. I just prefer to get away from all the social media noise, reminisce about the past, plan for the future and enjoy the day with one or two close friends. This year wont be any much different. I've been feeling quite old lately though, but that's good too. I took a stock of Q1 2016 yesterday and I was happy. My typical attitude to…
