16 Thoughts I Had When I Saw Linda Ikeji's New 2014 Range Rover.

The first message I was woken up to got me feeling some kinda way. It was from a close friend frantically urging me to go to Linda's blog and see her last post. I was still a bit groggy but hey, what the heck? I was actually quite eager as I'd thought it would be something I could post on my blog (seeing as I wake up most mornings with no idea of what to post and would gladly copy&paste if need be *covers face*). Oh well, it wasn't something I could post per se, but it was pretty interesting. So I'm going to share with you guys the thoughts in my head when I saw Linda Ikeji's new 2014 Range Rover and her other cars. 

1) Buahahahahahahhaha. It must be frustrating for Linda's haters the way she keeps winning. 

2) Wait, why did this babe want me to see this? What am I supposed to do? Feel bad? Be jealous? Get
depressed? Kill myself? Whatever jor

3) Don't you just hate it when a friend messages you and says check that person's page, that person just got engaged, this person just bought a new car, that person just got married, that person's salary just trebled, that person's husband just flew her out of the country to go shopping, yadayadayada. PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE JOR!

4) But babes, why you dey vex? Swear you've never been guilty of that same thing too. You have abi? Oya stop vexing. 

5) Dang! That dress. Linda keep your Range, just give me that dress. I'll do gastric bypass just to fit into that dress. (Wait. If I can afford gastric bypass why don't I just get the dress, and more dresses?)

6) Linda is one favoured woman. 

7) Is she just proud of her achievements and trying to encourage others, or is she trying to make people jealous? Hmmm *thinking*. 

8) Ok, why is she showing us her three cars side by side? Now she's just rubbing it in jor!

9) How many other gossip bloggers are asking at this very minute "God, when will it be my turn?

10) (my friend messages to say Linda is wearing a ring but on the wrong hand) *RME* Babe you dey see things sha *SMH*. (Sorry babe, I actually RME'd n SMH'd at you, but I still love you. LOL). So is Linda trying to tell us something? Is she going to pull a 'Toke Makinwa Ayida' on us soon?

11) Who's the lucky man? Hmmmm? Who might Linda be seeing? Will she marry someone less successful than she is? Otherwise he's got to be doing really well for himself... Hmmm. 

12) Wait. Are all these cars going to fit into that compound? Don't other people in the compound have cars too? Where will she park the cars? Where will the others park their cars?

13) When will Linda move out of her parent's home? She can certainly afford to live wherever she wants... Is there a particular reason she's still living at home? I would really really like to know... 

14) (When my friend messaged to say "Hmmm, all this just from blogging?") Well you have to remember that she's been blogging for quite sometime now. But then the truth is, she's not the only one who's been blogging for that long; the babe is simply favoured. She's not the only one who's been blogging for that long, but she's 'The Chosen One' #Matrix. LOL.
*but I'm beginning to wonder if my friend was insinuating that Linda's wealth isn't from blogging alone but from some other (secret/questionable/unknown?) means?*

15) That's why the importance of vision can never be overstated. Take everything and just give me vision. Dear Lord give me foresight and sharpen my instincts. Linda wouldn't be where she is today without vision, that's why in the first few years she started blogging even when she wasn't seeing a dime she knew to stay on course because the future for her as a blogger was much bigger than who she was or what she and others could see. That's what vision does. 

16) Nwando ngwa it haff do. Get off the bed. But this weather tho... Weather for two tinz. LOL. 


  1. Lord when would it be my turn oh, chai! And it came to my mind that her haters would just be tired, ehhh we are hating you and your not tripping, you keep winning Nawa and the ring* I noticed it too noticed* it was on the right finger too hmmm. Finally she must be trying to make some people die where they are lol

  2. Lolllllll, I asked my self that question too why is she showing us her 3 cars at once plus that ring? Well congrats to her,yours will com too T.

  3. I wonder about #7 too. Because everytime after Linda has finished showing off and rubbing it in your face she immediately turns into a motivational speaker. Shioor.

  4. And btw,she bought/built a home for her folks so technically its her home till otherwise...

    1. That was in the village. Is she going to move to her village? I'm sure she has properties in Lagos too but I'm also curious that she's still living in Surulere with mama and papa.

    2. She has said before, years ago that her dad said she must live at home till she moves to her husband's house.

  5. Lols...her hustle isn't only real but its paying off too!
    The favour of God shldnt be underestimated!

  6. I wish she was unapologetic about her wealth. She strikes me as someone who doesn't think she deserves her wealth. So she tries to show off in a "shy" way. I don't know how to put. But I wish she had more self confidence. The babe is a star. She has to walk and talk the walk and talk of stars.

    1. She strikes me as a naturally shy person. How many times have you seen her at events in Lagos?J

    2. Ifesinachi I know what you mean. But I think her shyness is because she's showing off and that's what she's ashamed of. What is the recent development of her posting everything she's wearing and tagging the designers on IG? To me that signifies poverty mentality. That na me be dis? mentality.

    3. She does the tagging thing for other people so why not for herself? It's her style of blogging, she knows what brings the comments so she does that. i'm surprised people act surprised when she does that.

  7. LOL! In fact I'm Rotflmsao!!!
    I learnt a new thing this morning, I Can Really be Jealous oh! But in a Good way. LOL.
    My bff from high school just called me this morning to tell me she got engaged & i'm the chairperson of her wedding planning committee, honestly I cringed & felt nauseous. Like, Babe for real? The single me? It is well.
    Anyway, the feeling will pass. I know.

    Then I went on LIB & saw that post. #Bows! I just can't hate on Linda, whatever she's doing to make her money, she should do more. She & Dencia are the real hustling MVPs!

  8. There is too much of poverty mentality with that lady, reason I lost interest in anything about her. And same reason I am a fan of 2Face.
    I look forward to the day people will do very big things and will see it as normal; the king of the jungle doesn't show off his game!

    1. Thank you Wale, I guess it's something true 2face fans have in common. They aren't moved by blatant shows of material wealth, it reeks of inferiority complex and poor mentality. Humility is the one quality they embrace.
      I'm not hating in anyway, it's the same way I feel when people broadcast the fact that they went to orphans or did some kind of charity. When you are giving don't let your right hand know what your left hand is giving and you Father in heaven will reward you. Have you ever noticed that when people are giving change as offering in church they squeeze it but when they are giving thousands they have a way of making everyone around notice, they bring it out of their wallets slowly and drop it into the offering box with a show of pride instead of gratitude. That's part of why Jesus said it will be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
      Theres an oppressor mentality we have and it's not good, that is why many people won't show you the way they make money cos they always want to be "above" you, in their minds money defines who you are so they'll rather give you water than lead you to the stream to fetch for yourself.
      Sad how we let material wealth cloud our senses.

    2. In Linda's defence, she does that for other people on her blog she's probably following the same pattern knowing the traffic it will generate. It's all about business for some people. Look at the comments that post has. She chose traffic (business) over being modest.

      Some time ago (when she bought the jeep)she said a lot of runs girls put up pictures of cars and houses bought by sugar daddies and the like, so putting up her own accomplishments is a way of showing young girls that you can achieve all that (cars, building a house for your parents, wearing designer cloths etc) through hard work as against runs. She has a point because every time I see a post on some big thing Linda accomplished it motivates me to work harder, it gives me hope that God can bless even the least expected hustle and to be steadfast.

      Her blog is an influential medium so..... J

  9. Is linda the only person making money from blogging? Bella naija is doing well but not showing off. Linda is setting herself for God knows what. Thelma unless you are reeady to blog about just anything to just any audience, you and linda arent in the same category. Also linda does a lot of giveaways - awoof is what people like.

    1. Miss Pynk I wasn't comparing myself to Linda. This post is in no way related to me in comparison to Linda. First off I'm not and will probably never be a gossip blogger, secondly I honestly don't imagine myself making that kind of money from just blogging alone. In truth I don't see myself in the same category with Linda or any other blogger for that matter. I generally appreciate anyone who's succeeding in their (legitimate) chosen fields.

      And while I appreciate everyone saying Thelma you will get there, my visions and dreams are quite different from this.

      Still on still, I pray to find success in whatever I put my hands into and I wish the same for you all.

    2. Amen, on behalf of all of us

    3. Amen o! Even though I won't mind the kind money Linda has. Lol

    4. Amen. Everyone has their own destined path to greatness. What modelling didn't get Linda, blogging did.

  10. Linda is highly favoured, her story is a constant reminder that no one knows tomorrow and that the future holds a lot so long as thr is life. We will all get thr God willing.

  11. I hail linda and her hustle... @T, soon we go pop our rang rover and Mercedes oh... Soon I say... Hope everyone is having a wonderful day...

  12. I went to same school (and same set) as Oluchi Onweagba - Surulere Girls' Secondary School.
    I also attended the same tutorial center as Linda in Surulere.
    Both ladies are super rich and I am just me.
    Am I jealous? Far from it.
    Do I wish for their kind of wealth? Only if God allows it.

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…


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.

One More Post...


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
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


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…


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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
