It's a wrap...Action!

by - Monday, December 05, 2016
Hey, everyone!

How are you all doing? Hope you are all good.

As for me, I'm fine ooo! In fact, feeling better every day. Adopting new strategies to being myself and living the life I want to live. My dream life! 

Honestly, it's so great to see your lovely faces (literally speaking) on my blog again! 
It's almost the end of the year you know - 25 more days to be precise! 2017 is just around the corner.

This countdown to 2017 has been full of thought for me. Thoughts centred around my life and where it's going to. Like I said earlier I have been adopting new ways of getting to my dream life.

By the way, what is your dream life? How is the life you wish to live?

That is my major goal for 2017. Living the life I want for myself. I made it my goal because it sums up the other goals like landing my dream job, travelling, living a luxurious life and spending quality time with my love ones.

So after reviewing my goals, I felt the need to put my life on the track leading to my dream life. 

I think it's time to put an end to my previous comfortable life and begin a new life of taking challenges in order to obtain a better version of myself!

These challenges I'm taking are meant to make me grow and develop the experience I need in all domains of my life.

I'm almost done with school and I need to start developing another image other than that of a student. I still intend to keep studying but I don't want studies to be the definition of me or my personality. 

It's time to add some professionalism to the student life and adopt the lifestyle of a-soon-to-be working class girl.

I don't want to call these changes a new year resolution because there is something about that word 'resolution' that makes me not to keep doing it in the long run. I don't know why!

So as the director of the movie of my life I say 'It's a wrap!' to my former movie.

"It's a wrap!"

And to my new life, I say 'Action!'


For this post, I decided to go along with photos of me, myself and I after I made the decision to go back to long hair again.

But this time I want to keep natural or virgin or nappy hair. I have to cover it up for now with some synthetic fibre extensions. I hope with time you will see my nappy hair as you follow my hair journey.

I'm so excited about it and looking forward to this new journey after 10 months of shaved hair. I will really miss my short hair but I have to move on to new challenges to have new experiences.

When I was...

So please any advice or tips for keeping natural hair (nappy hair) will be highly appreciated. And I need a nappy hair buddy too for encouragement so please declare yourself if you are a nappy girl (or boy).

So my loves, tell me all your thoughts by commenting and I am always glad to read them all.

  5. I like your pictures and this post was definitely an interesting read! I hope you achieve all your goals girl!

    So earlier this week, I had the chance of going to a Chinese restaurant to eat with my friends. Before going we really wanted to find a budget friendly but still up to standard restaurant and we searched the Internet endlessly to no avail but we just decided to try our luck and go to anyone.
    We had to go to one on the Lagos mainland because going to the Lagos Island is a journey for me lol. So we decided on Sunrise Chinese restaurant in Ikeja very close to the Ikeja city mall.

    On getting to the restaurant, it did not look too attractive, It's a yellow building with not very attractive decor. The restaurant is a bit smaller than expected but it's good for an intimate day out because it's really quiet. I saw some Chinese people and I thought damn it's going to be so expensive.

    After sitting down, the waiters were not friendly, they were polite but they did not seem approachable or cordial. They handed the menu to us. Their prices are quite budget friendly and standard. Below are some pictures of the menu
    There was an added tax of about 600 Naira which I think is actually okay unlike some restaurants that charge 1500 VAT.

    I ordered vegetable fried rice with shrimps and shredded chicken in chili sauce. also I ordered some spring rolls as an appetizer. The spring rolls were my best part as they tasted so nice and dipping them in chili sauce made my day. Also the chicken sauce was also very nice but I was a bit disappointed by the fried rice and I ended up just picking out the shrimps and eating my chicken sauce.

    Altogether it was an okay experience and it's a restaurant worth going to, Maybe their disappointing vegetable fried rice was a one time thing.
