Style Edit: Casually Corporate

I recently wrote a post on my feelings of conflict amidst a rising insecurity about my law path. I consider this post to be a kind of continuation of that, because the truth is I have a lot of stuff I’m trying to figure out, like most people out there. Style Blogger Struggles Firstly I’d […]

Law Student, Mass Comm. Mind

From Pilot to Lawyer I first was attracted to the idea of being a lawyer when I was in high school. Prior to that moment of discovery, I’d considered a variety of options for a humble career. Like any normal person, I wanted to be a writer, then a teacher, a dancer, a painter, a […]

Nigerian Pride: An Ode to Nigerian Creatives

So, it’s basically independence day. This day probably solicits a wide range of responses from people, from absolute joy (because, public holiday and whatnot) to numbness. Some may have probably lost all motivation and hope for this country, due to the hardships they have faced in it. I’m still quite young, and have been blessed, […]

Then and Now: #NeverSayNever

Firstly, shoutout to Ada of Crave Jade for this post which inspired me to do something similar. Remember when the world first discovered Justin Bieber and it felt like nearly every girl was crazy about him? Maybe you don’t. Maybe you weren’t even crazy about him. I remember that time period, and I also was […]

The Style Edit: Inhibitions

I consider myself to have an “aunty” style. Think that one nosy family member who always has something to say but can’t get her life […]

The Style Edit: Genesis

Ever since I mastered the joys of the internet, I have always had a thing for saving photos of stuff. Whether I saw an amazing aesthetically pleasing photo on Tumblr, We Heart It, or Pinterest, my instinct was to save. This has led to folders upon folders, filled with all sorts of inspirational photos. When […]

The Day

A piece by Mind of Amaka “Close your eyes, and let us take a few prayer points.” Said the pastor, his voice booming across the large auditorium, carried by the microphone which he clutched tightly. He wore a navy blue suit, looking dapper from top to bottom. On his shiny forehead were beads of perspiration, […]

Be Moved: Favourite Gospel Songs

I honestly love music with all my heart. I’m not the best singer, nor do I play any instruments, but there’s something about music that just has a magical effect on me. It can bump up my mood, make me feel sober and reflective (‘Draking’) or just catapult my heart & mind into some kind […]

The Day I Asked for Death

Depression is a big thing, It affects so many people around the world. It’s like a dark figure with a chokehold on you, invading your mind and body. It makes you feel worthless, it drains you. It makes you reluctant, it makes you doubt. I hope to bring more awareness to mental issues throughout my […]
