My Life Is Pretty Awesome!

At least that's how I feel tonight. The day started off looking sort of dreary but it turned out rather pleasantly. I got some unexpected gifts and who doesn't love unexpected gifts?



*Sam asked earlier for us to go out and I replied in the negative, I was really feeling down. But in spite of that he showed up at my place when I got home in the evening with my favourite food and my favourite things; perfumes! (Some people have shoe fetishes, some have bag fetishes, I have neither of those, perfumes are my opium and they're the fastest way to my heart.)



TBH I'm not the biggest fan of Bvlgari perfumes, but Jimmy Choo! Who doesn't love Jimmy Choo??? (Thank you boo). 

Then I remembered I told my friend I'll come over this evening and since he stays close by I quickly rushed over. And I'm glad I did. Lagosians I just had the best Kilishi in town! I got a pack and was also given an extra package, as the good friend that I am. LOL. 



Honestly this is the best kilishi I've had in a while, this was dinner, with a cold drink. (Hands down the most exciting dinner I've had in a minute). If you live in Lagos and you love kilishi then you have to try this, I'll be giving out a few packs on the blog soon (Mariam you should be the first recipient but unfortunately you're not in Lagos...). 

And just as I was about leaving his place Henrietta alerted me that she was back home. So I rushed over. Now this isn't all smiles because Henri is leaving for the USA tomorrow where she will return from in some months with a bouncing baby! It's just a weird feeling that Henrietta/Chocolate won't be around. Henri is one of those friends; QC, UNEC and forever! Babe, I really do love you, I will miss you terribly. You have the most friends among anyone else I know and it's not by mistake, it's because of who you are. You're a truly lovable, witty, fun, kindhearted individual. Yeah we don't hang that often but babes I think you are freaking fantastic and that's why all your friends go out of their way, go above and beyond where you're concerned. 

Last week Henrietta suggested she take me to the Spa; massages, mani-pedi, sauna and the whole works, all on her! I don't have any other girlfriend that would have suggested taking me out and spending good money on me on just a random day. Unfortunately I couldn't make it because I was busy but the thought itself meant so much to me. She's easily one of the most generous individuals I know (and God in his infinite mercies will continue to be generous to you babe. Amen) and tonight she once again showed me that generosity. 

If I were to take a picture of the things this babe has given (me) it will be just too much, but tonight these are some of what I got. 






The irony of this is that I spent thousands of naira on makeup including a brush set like this just a few days ago. And today Henrietta gave me this MAC set and a make up box with stuff I cannot afford to buy at the moment (that shimmery MAC powder, the Dior and Revlon lipsticks most especially), and I'm sincerely grateful. 

I'll miss you my friend and neighbour. 'Can't wait till you get back. I just cannot wait to carry your offspring. LOL!

.........

Ok, so that's that. No my life probably isn't as awesome as I made it sound in the post's Title but that's just how I feel tonight. Having friends that love, and express their love, makes my life feel so much richer. And with that thought I'm off to bed with a smile on my lips. 

God, please let this mark the end of dry-spell season.

  14. In a world filled with negative stories, about friends back biting and all sorts of madness, it feels great and cool reading words of gratitude about your friend. Just wanna wish Henrietta a safe trip and safe delivery plus tons of joy in the days ahead.
    My thoughts are wandering and imagining how truly beautiful the world would be if we show more appreciation.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
