Brick & Mortar or Online Shopping?

Not too long ago, Linda and I were discussing and one topic that came up was that of getting an actual store. Of course, the traditional business method has always been physical, meaning you interact face to face with the person selling the goods. I think online shopping is one of the most amazing advancements in technology, and here are…

Skinny Girl In Transit: Is Drama the Spice of Life?

I’d been hearing about Skinny Girl in Transit, a Nigerian web-series shown on NDANI TV’s Youtube channel every Friday, for quite some time. I made a mental note to check it out but didn’t really get around to that. However, I watched Sisi Yemmie’s video ‘Husband Does My Makeup’ and while scrolling through the comments, some people said she looked…

My 6 Month Blog-versary

Anniversaries are weird sometimes. I give side eyes to the couples that celebrate things like 1 month anniversary and whatnot. Oh well, what’s my business? If I was to get married, I think I’d do a 6 month and 1 year anniversary, then 3, 5, 10. After the 10th one, I’d celebrate majorly every 5 years. For my kids birthdays,…

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 model, the most beautiful girl…

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, with God providing me with…

Mind on the Month: September

I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited to write a ‘Mind on the Month’ post, as I am to write this one. The last time I was this excited was probably the first time I started writing these posts, in April. Well, I hope this excitement lasts, and October brings gifts with it!  Firstly, I’m sure you noticed my…

A place with a comment section rife with all sorts of comments, small fights and arguments, littered with insults (some of which you haven’t heard before, you take…

Short Story: Cut From a Different Cloth

She had ran away from her husbands home, she had destroyed the sacred marriage. Who would have known that this young girl married off young and beautiful to a reasonably wealthy family would’ve brought disgrace?

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 not a fan. Looking back,…
