Dear Thelma (What Do You Give Someone Who Has Everything?)

Happy Sunday to TTB family. Please I need you all to help me with ideas for Valentine. I've been so confused about what do get my boyfriend and as 14th is coming closer I'm getting more nervous. My boyfriend is his early forties and divorced. At first I didn't think we could have a serious relationship but when he approached me I didn't turn him down because I will be honest my salary wasn't paying well enough and I needed financial assistance, I knew he's very rich and could help me. As fate would have it he was more serious than I thot and I too began to fall for him. It has been the most amazing relationship of my life although at first I didn't want it because he is a divorcee. I decided to be more open to our relationship because he has shown that he genuinely loves me and he appreciates my famil. He takes care of most of my needs and even helps with some of my family's needs to. My question is pretty simple, Valentine is fast approaching and he's the one that even reminded me so I'm sure he is expecting something from me. I would like to do or give him something but I have no idea what I can buy. He is very well off and has everything he already wants in abundance. I cannot even on my own afford the kind of things he uses even if I want to buy him a pair of shoes or perfume. His things are all original designers which he buys from their stores abroad. For instance he will only buy LV things from an LV shop or Chanel things from a Chanel shop. I cannot really afford to buy the original of these designers. But even if I squeeze out money from my savings, my account will really feel the pinch and yet he still may not appreciate it because he already has more than enough of these things. Besides can I even get real originals in lagos? I've thought about preparing a nice meal or baking a cake but these are things that I already do for him. Please what can you give somebody that has everything, and they will still appreciate it. Thank you very much. 


  1. The way I see it? Its you who's thinking he might not value what you bring to him...Whatsoever, it is you wanna wrap for him... I'm sure he'll appreciate. It doesn't have to be extra-expensive for him. Regardless, I'm sure he'll appreciate it. :-)

  2. Its not how expensive a gift is,it's the thought that matters. He might have everything, but that gift from you given in love will mean a lot to him.

  3. How about you take him out to dinner, someplace really nice....

  4. Hmmm.. Why don't you create a nice day for him.. Say at his place.. From morning to night.. Make a romantic themed breakfast and dinner.. All by yourself... Give him a spa treatment.. You get scented candles, oils and lotion...Give him a full body massage while playing a nice song in the background... Create a sexy peaceful environment.. Candle lit dinner too.. Appetizers, main course and dessert.. And end the night with you being a sexy dessert ? ( that's if you guys have sex) ... Put on a sexy show for him .. Go get some sexy night wear.. I think he won't forget that day in a hurry ...

    1. Clears throat! Meme Baby... Notin do you!

      Like someone said. It's the thought that counts. You know the person you're dating and you know what he loves. A thoughtful gift would be more appreciated than an expensive one.

    2. Gbam!!!!you said it all.You just gave me my valentine advice...kisses. TNHW

    3. hehe.. my pleasure ladies :*

  5. Wrap up yourself and deliver yourself to him with a note that says " Gold or silver I have not,but I present myself to you.Happy Valentine"Lol#justkidding

    Babe, buy him anything within your budget,Dude knows your financial status,I am sure he isn't expecting anything out of this world from you.that said...

    I will suggest you write a very romantic note, as in, a loaded hand written love letter, appreciating all that he has done and how he has been more than a lover bla bla bla,accompanied With fresh flowers and a bottle of his favourite champagne.
    Have it delivered to him even if you will be with him that day.OR
    Have his picture painted on a canvass with a bottle of wine . At least he can hang that on the wall at home or in his office.OR
    If it's not too late,you can quickly organize a well tailored trending trad with Swiss guinea material at least he can wear that to church and parties,even though he is not a "social climber".

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?

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…

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!
