For many years now, I’ve been trying hoping to put together a comprehensive record of my expenditure. I have a thing for data and ExceI and really would like to have an annual pie chart showing how I’ve spent my money. However, it’s sad to say this dream has never quite materialised because it’s generally been a battle for me to keep a money journal. … Continue reading Books and How to Get More of Them
…If you know what’s good for you. Life is another entire, separate cup of tea that I didn’t bargain for. They did not tell us it was gonna be like this o. I just had a look at my post feed, and it turns it’s been a year since my last post and two years in between that one and the one before it. In … Continue reading You Better Start Planning Your Wedding…
So I was going through a daily Guardian news update and this article caught my eye. Why? I saw these three words: me, before, and you.Nothing incredible about them, right? But in that order, they form the title of a book that touched my heart. I read Me Before You almost two years ago, and it touched me so deeply I blogged about it here. So, of course I clicked on the link thinking, ‘What are they saying about the book now?‘ Continue reading “Me Before You: Movie Review (Response)”
I subscribe to a newsletter from New Release Tuesday (a wonderful Christian resource website). It’s a great way to keep up-to-date with Christian music. They also give free weekly downloads. Which is how I came across J Han – a very interesting rapper. Who led me to AMP Movement – a Christian music collective, Which, in turn, led me to the topic of today – Sam Ock. Listen to some awesome music
I absolutely adore Lush cosmetics! My goodness, I could spend hours and oodles of cash in one of their shops. Their products have the best scents, and results ever. Every time I go in to get something specific, I leave the shop with at least one more product – no matter how much I try to resist! The only drawback is the steep prices 😦 (especially on a student budget which I was on at the time 😀 ). Oh and they have fabulous customer service! Someone is always there to answer your questions, and make suggestions. This is beginning to sound like a Lush ad… 😀 But I love, love, love it!
One day, I went in for hair moisturiser (they have this absolutely gorgeous one called R&B- it’s the best thing ever I tell you), but I stumbled on a tea tree facial toner that I knew I had to try. It was one of the cheapest things in the store, and I was like, “Yup, I’m definitely taking this home.” It worked beautifully! But one of my friends (an amazing lady called Livvy who makes a large number of her cosmetics herself) recommended I make mine. See how to make yours
Hallo, people! So, I did a lil video about me. It occurred to me to give everyone who reads this blog and subscribes to my YouTube channel a bit more background on who I am. And the Get To Know Me video was born! Whoopeedoo! One of the main reasons I did it was to help you (yes, you 😉 ) relate to me and this … Continue reading Get to Know Me
To stop my brain from degenerating and possibly exploding during a 13-hour layover, I march to the airport bookstore and spend the next half-hour searching for the perfect book. When I read the synopsis of Me Before You by someone named Jojo Moyes, I know I have exactly what I need. Continue reading “Who Are You?”
No, my blog hasn’t become a gossip site. 😀 This is a very uncharacteristic post, but I just had to do it! Someone put up a post about his wedding on Facebook and something caught my eye. Continue reading “OC Ukeje gets married and destroys a myth!”

The first time I came across Alex Boye’s (Boh-yay) work was when I watched his cover of the popular song from Frozen – Let It Go (watch here). It was pretty captivating, but I didn’t really notice him, I was mostly taken by the young female lead, and I forgot about him. That was until I came across The Piano Guys cover of Coldplay’s Paradise (watch Peponi) – which I absolutely love. Now, The Piano Guys… That’s a story for another day (just know I think they’re great!).
Anyway, back to Mr Boye. Continue reading “Make Lemonade!”
