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…

Vegas Baby! Howdy? Ah! Happy New year to you for clicking this post o. I kinda appreciate it. It makes me feel you wanna hear my ramble. It's a good year to be alive. I'm grateful to God for this year and for some reason, there's a good feeling this year ushered in. It's not the cliche feeling of new year o. Nah! I remember this time last year. Last Year New year.

Morning Mortals! :) Trust you're all well. This isn't the intended post for this morning. That's coming shortly. I saw this advert on YouTube this morning and I was really impressed. I'll give you 2 reasons why. Why I'm impressed The (obvious) concept and creativity behind #LikeAGirl and how it translates to always. #LikeAGirl. Thats even an entirely different topic I could address sometime later. That big brands with little or no challenging competition still put lots of creativity into their Ads. Am talking Ads that actually make an impression. (Not all these "pure-water-quality" Ads where the wife is always cooking, smiling and hugging her kids because the food is sweet while her husband is screaming "oh la la!" with his eyes popping out. Nah!). Am talking about Ads that speak to…

Howdy Earthlings! How was your weekend? Here in Nigeria, we had a loooong weekend - public holidays on Monday and Tuesday, hence, the week is just starting and it gonna end pretty soon. Yayyy! Anyway, I spent my long weekend on a pet project I've had in mind for a while. I was basically creating a fashion item, which I'm gonna share here pretty soon, BTW, its gonna be for sale so, am excited about what will emanate from it. Am being very professional about the project, applying some business sense to it, planning photo shoots, working out economies of scale, documenting procedures etc, so thats fun. Back to the business of the day. In my usual fashion, while browsing the internet, I came across a guy - Troye Sivan. Amazing amazing vocals…
