Admit It, You've Felt This Way Before.

LMAO. God forgive me but... I can so relate. Have you ever seen a very ordinary, very average or below average chic with a boyfriend who's a complete hottie? Ever wondered what he could possibly see in her? Ever asked God "But if this one can have a boyfriend, this kind of boyfriend at that, then what is my excuse?"

I felt that way earlier today at my friend's wedding. the chic in question; very ordinary, plain Jane... Her man? Gaddemmit! LOL. He's smoking hot. 

I've heard so many theories why some extremely handsome and successful men date/marry very ordinary, sometimes (physically) unattractive women. I honestly cannot remember the theories so I'd have to ask you if you have an idea why. Do tell please!

Me, leaving home. Don't worry I did final touches at the venue before entering into the reception 

Oh and the wedding was amazeballs, it was a blast. Great food, good friends, fantastic conversation, good music, old friends, a variety of foods, generous servings of champagne, wine and liquor, fascinating cocktails, bolli and fish, grilled fish and chips, several handsome single men, beautiful ladies, wonderful ambience. I'm not sure what it is but something about Yoko's wedding made me feel innately happy, so much so that I did something I never do; I stayed behind after the main wedding. When the main wedding ends it's usually just the young ones left, usually close friends and family, more drinks, more music, more dancing, more mingling, more flirting, more catching up. In all I had an awesome time, the dress wasn't too much of an issue and I'm just so glad that Yoko and Chidi have finally entered into holy matrimony.


  1. Awwww, Congrats to Yoko. I always shed a few tears at weddings. #PoorMe
    To ur question, My hottie cousin said he married his "mgbeke" because she'll give him NO problem with his philandering! She's gonna be content with just bearing his name, kids & spending his money. Plus no cheating on her part cos guys won't toast her. He said hot/intelligent wife = wahala...
    That's all I heard!

    Btw, T, U look hawt. This ur ukwu sha. So any prospective Bobo that won't mind fetching water for Ur gorgeous self? #SideEye

  6. It Amazes me too Thelma! @Ruthylicious I always enjoy your comments! Getting addicted to your Blog Thelma! Cheers

    1. U are welcome Partsy. #Hugs
      T's blog is like Cocaine, we are ALL addicted & we don't need rehab! *Pinching T's Ukwu* See how people appreciate ur blog?

  7. Its 7am and i'm on this blog, it is well. T u look amazingggggg. Hot tamale! But wait o me i think Yoko is hotter and finer than Chidi tho, or is it cuz u know her personally but its weird though cuz in my mind i was like ahnahn this chic is wayyy hotter than her hubby,hmmmm

    1. Lol. That one sef dey but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  8. Hmmmm, T wat have u done to us. It 7am and I'm on ur blog too. You look hot by the way.

    Some good looking guys I know settled for plain Jane cos of her bank account. More often than not that's the main the main reason. Very few stay for love or whatever.

    I have asked guys severally, will u marry a beautiful girl who can't cook or a plain girl who can cook.

    95 percent went for a beautiful girl who can't cook, their comments were. She go learn, I'd employ a cook, bla bla.


  9. Thelma looking biuriful as usual, ur gown is 'off-da-hook', asin its so fyyyyyn.

    To d question, I gat no clue as to d reason y but I av a neighbour that falls into this category and I think his reason is kinda related to dt of ruthy's cousin sha.

  10. I swear down,Ruth u are a case oh...I no pray to fight u,cos ur mouth bad gan.....the theory aspect I heard of is that plain Jane's fuck the hell outta their boyfriends because what they don't make up for beauty,they do for sex....bia Thelma,Ido something about your pictures jare,they are not to clear,would like to see the ukwu very well.....that naughty house wife

    1. My hubby holds the same theory. I have also heard Ruthy's cousin's theory. In this case, the guy is not even all that but refused the babe to workout in order to lose baby fat, won't let her buy new clothes... I think it stems primarily from insecurity. As per Thelma's pics, it's deliberate o.

  11. I'm fallin in luv with dis blog already. I'm an ardent reader but commentin for d first tym. Luv u Thelma
    @ruthylicious, I luv ur command of english n ur sense of humour

    Perfect Nails and lashes, Lagos

    1. *Insert Curtsy*
      Thanks Ma'am... Biko do U do nails? Send ur address to Thelma. I don't mind trying U though I'm scared of Lagos people scattering my amala soft fingers!

  12. Thelma you look nice. I married a handsome guy by my own standards, we even look alike. Lol. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though. Less attractive people cheat tooo

  13. As miss pynk said beauty is in the eye of the beholder well sometimes love just happens and you don't get to select who you love and sometimes people have what they lack on the outside inside and are amazing people,you never know ,u look good between Thelma and Happy marriage life to your friend

  14. Thelma to answer your question, sometimes it's because of money, sometimes the personality of the girl outweigh her plain looks.

  15. Love is a very strange stuff, it goes beyond the physical tho, ever wondered why some people marry physically challenged people when they are not physically challenged, its just love and sometimes u dont choose who you fall in love with. In some other cases there are also reasons like the one Ruthy's cousin gave. U know sometimes i still wonder why my hubby chose to marry me, am good looking alright but i was a divorced single mum and he has never been married nor has any kid, this thing called Love tho, Odiegwu.

  16. Someone told me ugly girls de sweet die, one guy doesn't know his wife is ugly he says she's the best thing that has happened to him, like most people said love sef na wah. My boo doesn't have even one of the qualities I like in a man but his heart is to die for. T why aren't the pics clear na Abi na my fone?

  17. Replies
    1. I don't. She never says anything or makes sense. I hope Thelma won't delete my comment again, it is my own opinion

  18. @ruthylicious, I fix nails and eyelashes. Will send my add to thelma

    Perfect nails and Lashes, lagos

  19. @ruthylicious, I've sent d add to thelma's mail box. Tnx a lot babe

    Perfect nails and lashes, lagos

  20. Looking hot as scotch bon peppers chica! Saw loads of pics, looks like u all had fun. Muchas happy for Yoks. She was glowing all the way! Glad the alternative dress worked out looking great.

  21. I'm late but I must comment simply because you look fantabulous. Kiss kiss kiss

  22. T, u are looking very 'hawwwt'. Omalicha, u are very pretty shaaaa.
    As for the hot guy marrying a plain jane....I've heard a guy like that say 'he married her cus she worships the ground he walks on'. she doesn't give him wahala, unlike those fine 'peacock' girls.

  23. Thelma ur shape is to die for! @ ruthy lwkmd @" pinching tee's uku" kai. Apart from ruthy's theory. I have heared a guy who married an ordinary girl say he married his wife becuz she stood by him when he had nating. And there was no way he would have married another girl. But him friends been yab am shaaaaa! But he stood his grounds and married his "local girlfriend" today they r overseas!

  24. you know im the girl in this picture...

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…
