I had rice for lunch today. Now that really does not sound spectacular, until you realise that I eat rice almost every day at work. My conversation with the young lady who takes our orders before lunchtime goes something like this- ME: What do you have? YOUNG LADY: We have rice, this and this, that and … Continue reading HERE’S HOW TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND, easily
A BREAK, UNINTENDED + a few updates
Can I just say "Hey there, long time no see" and we pick up from where we left off almost three months (read: centuries) ago? I'm sure the answer would be a resounding No! I am so sorry, and I mean it. Though I never planned any of the circumstances that led to the blog … Continue reading A BREAK, UNINTENDED + a few updates
WE’RE SET FOR SHENONYMS 2.0
We are right in the middle of planning our yearly young women's purpose and lifestyle conference. These past weeks have been filled with plans, to-do lists, prayers of both faith and despair, and the full spectrum of emotions- from being pumped up to just wanting to disappear into thin air. But look who's made it … Continue reading WE’RE SET FOR SHENONYMS 2.0
READIN’ LATELY: August
When I judged Barbara Hughes' Disciplines of a Godly Woman at first, I felt it could only be one thing- boring. It belonged to my Mom and had been lying around the house for years. So when she brought the book a few weeks ago and said, “Try and read this book, Ozioma”, I took one … Continue reading READIN’ LATELY: August
MY GRANDPARENTS VISITED, AND HERE’S ONE THING I LEARNT
I once posted on my Facebook wall "there are only two states in Nigeria - Lagos, and the others". Okay, I just may have exaggerated a little there but you can tell how much I love Lagos or rather the part of Lagos I usually visit. When an opportunity came up this August to visit Lagos … Continue reading MY GRANDPARENTS VISITED, AND HERE’S ONE THING I LEARNT
WHY ON EARTH AM I BLOGGING?
It's July in a jiffy, and I must apologise to you because I didn't show up much on the blog this month. I started on a lot of blog posts but then writers' block, procrastination and all associated demons would kick in and kill my ginger. Guess I will need to have a few more … Continue reading WHY ON EARTH AM I BLOGGING?
READIN’ LATELY: May
Recently, a blogger-friend shared something about not being able to complete a single book since the beginning of the year. I recall thinking "oh, so that's a thing?" because I'd never really given much thought to setting book goals or to whether I was reading "enough". I knew I had my struggles, but I was … Continue reading READIN’ LATELY: May
FIRST-TIME FLYER? CHECK THIS OUT…
I still remember the first time I traveled by air; I think I was about 14 then and just a few months shy of completing high school. You could easily tell it was my first time right from the airport to the plane! In fact, when I look back at that experience, I seriously want … Continue reading FIRST-TIME FLYER? CHECK THIS OUT…
HOW TO SMASH YOUR GOALS (even when you don’t feel like it)
So this is how it happened: I'd made plans to see a movie last Saturday with my friend D (who's probably reading this and rolling her eyes). In my defence, I was excited about having some nice girl-time with D and giving myself a little post-birthday treat. I'd even planned the dress, the on- fleek make … Continue reading HOW TO SMASH YOUR GOALS (even when you don’t feel like it)
18 “random” THINGS ABOUT ME
Hi there! It's a few hours away from the Easter weekend! Easter is traditionally celebrated either in March or April, and it just so happens that I was born on the last day in the month of March. See the connection? In fact, I thought it so cool when my birthday coincided with Easter Sunday … Continue reading 18 “random” THINGS ABOUT ME
ARGUING WITH YOUR PARTNER? 3(+1) Helpful Tips
"You're such a nice girl, you hardly fall out with anyone" I've probably heard these words (or a variant) more times than I can count on both hands. And I believed them till I read a particular book which described the various ways people reacted in the face of conflict. I'd do a quick summary … Continue reading ARGUING WITH YOUR PARTNER? 3(+1) Helpful Tips
RECAP x BIRTHDAY PLANS + FIRST GUEST POST!
It's been quiet around here for almost two weeks but I'm glad to announce that we are back and ready to roll! Just so you know, my initial plan was to create new content during weekends and then publish mid-week. Let's just say things didn't go as planned because by mid-week I was either still … Continue reading RECAP x BIRTHDAY PLANS + FIRST GUEST POST!
