Say what ?! Twice in one week I am on a roll J
Late at night when I’m lonely I indulge in some shoe porn. at least till I can afford the ones I want. Cuz child I refuse and reject those go Jane imitations. Sorry my feet my choice.
Notice the louboutins are at the bottom of my wishlist ;)

¡Hola its been a while

 Carrie and them lied!!! Being a young chick out here is not all about fabulous parties, shoes and man problems!


I’ve always found it funny when my friends were being harassed about their marital status, now Karma has come to bite me in the ass. If you’re African you know what I’m talking about. It starts as innocent questions “any one special” “hope he’s treating you nice”. Then it escalates full on rudeness, even from folks that don’t even know you like that.

The strangest was this guy I went to high school with in Nigeria. I haven’t even talked to him in forever. Mind you I probably shouldn’t have even responded. But this fool goes on to ask me about my taste in men o_0. Then he asks if I prefer white or black men. In a bid to end the weirdness I just told him I’ve never been with a white guy. This swegbe (illiterate goat) went on to ask how come I’ve never dated one in the six years I’ve been in The US. It took all the Jesus in me not to cuss him and his whole family out. At first I was pissed off but later I figured why am I mad at fools that don’t even understand that they are being RUDE.

I’ve concluded that a majority of Nigerians have an Entitlement complex. They feel like they can say whatever stray thought that flies through their head without any consequences.

There is this girl I know she's graduating with her MBA. She juggled work marriage n school. Why can't I find it in myself to create a balance? I just feel so inadequate and I hear Daddy's voice in the back of my head reinforcing the feeling. Does it make me a bad person that I see her success and I feel ashamed/jealous to the point I avoid her. What can I say I run from problems.

Looking at her stirs my underlying feelings of helplessness.  I just feel like I don't have complete control of my life. I'm just consumed by this crippling feeling of fear when it comes to doing what I need to do to take control. I just need to get over this fear of life.It cripples me and it keeps preventing me from doing what I need to do, to get where I WANT to be. I feel like I'm existing-floating-lost at sea.

God as I go into this week please banish procrastination...remove this feeling of inadequacy and unhappiness....grant me perseverance to do what I need to...and crown my efforts with success amen

March makeup favorites

Didn’t do a January or February favorite video because I didn’t find anything new that I absolutely loved.

I currently love my H&M skater dress (I would model it but I’m not ready to be attacked by blog trolls just yet ).

Thanks to YouTube I’ve discovered some badass drugstore brand make up. Like Rimmel of London’s lipsticks. For February I’m loving Kate Moss’s line in #12. It’s a bright orange. Sorry I don’t have any swatches cuz they came out looking crazy on my camera.

I just purchased a few of the new spring 2012 wet n wild mega last lip colors, I just luv them. Mega Last Lip Colors have a semi-matte finish and are nicely pigmented. They are pretty long lasting. I got them in think pink, sand storm, doll house pink & don’t blink pink.
The sand storm I think is a dupe for lady gaga viva glam 2. Doll house pink is a dupe for the Nicki Minaj Viva glam lipstick. The don’t blink pink witch is a hot fuchsia pink. Purty Persimmon is a bright reddish-orange its super pretty but it was sold out.
Also on my go to list is L’Oreal infallible eye shadow in green sage, Sleek contour kit and Sleek blush in coral .

Whats your favorite thing this month?

I’ve been a bad Blogger

It’s been forever. I got to spend some quality time with the family. I figured I might as well do it now cuz no job is going to let me do that. Nigeria was hot, humid, and dusty…..but its home and it was good to be home.

It was a great experience reconnecting with my roots. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to live in Nigeria. The ups and downs, NEPA (cuz they will never be PHCN to me) taking and bringing light at odd hours. Not being able to hear over the generator, lizards trying to use your house as a holiday inn. Police harassing bus drivers, swarms of okada’s darting in between cars. It was a circus but I loved it. I wish I could go right back but not really. Within two months I experienced two strikes, twice fuel scarcities and had to buy gas at twice the pump price.

I was able to spend some time in Abuja. It was my first trip and it was awesome. Felt like I was in a different country. The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness. Clean is one thing the streets of 9ja are not. The transportation is cheap the cab drivers are polite. It was a welcome shock; Abuja is on the list next time I’m in Nigeria.

The trip back was long and stressful. Continental airlines claims they didn’t have aviation fuel *eye roll*. Spent about 4 hrs in that hot ass airport in Lagos, at least they put us in a nice hotel. All in all I rate them a 6/10 because the food on the plane sucked even more than airplane food should, and their staff were really rude. They got the extra points because of the hotel and the price of the tickets.
I’m back in the states now and back on my grind aka job search. I promise to keep in touch.
