Wednesday Fashion: Rocking A Vintage Shirt

For a long time, I have danced in between uploading my personal pictures in the fashion categories or not. I am someone who does not like forcing my own stuffs down people’s throat. I was skeptical about what people would think about this but then it’s my blog *tongueout*  Just kidding… I actually thought if I could share my personal journey in other categories, why not in the fashion segment. So going forward, I will share some of my fashion styles, tips, errors and success…Would try to share every Wednesday. Hope you’d love and please don’t forget to review after reading…

Saying No

img_0937

I used to feel terrible whenever I say No to someone. I feel I am being rude and I have hurt someone’s feelings. I feel more terrible when I have to ignore the person so I can avoid turning them down to their face. Most times, I realized I end up hurting myself more than the person I’m scared to hurt. Because eventually, I discover what I have accepted to do, I cannot carry through.

Wrong Choices…

‘You are going to be a father’

‘No! No baby, not yet. We are not ready’

He panicked

She cried

He managed to convince her how the child is coming at the wrong time

They are still in school

And still rely on their parents for survival

It can’t happen now

She agreed

The child was not given a chance to decide its fate

From the Archives: Acrostic Poem

Hey dears, trust you are having a beautiful day. Mine has been so far and I am hopeful it would end just so.

It’s another day to share another write up from my archive. This was written as an undergraduate for one of my creative writing class. We were asked to share an acrostic poem with our names. And here is mine:

D – Dragging my feet all day

E – Enduring the pain of being a fool

B – Because I was away

O –  Or was I a careless fool?

R – Revenge cries in me as I lay?

A – And I will surely

H – Hearken to the voice of my heart fairly

If you had been my lecturer, how would you have scored me?

An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.

Some Male Fashion Trend I find Disgusting

Hello guys, it’s another beautiful week loaded with many blessings for us.

 

It’s been a while I share a fashion post. So we are having one today and it’s going to be about men fashion. I have come to notice that in recent times, people hardly talk about men fashion error except for ladies. Let’s talk about this, shall we?

How can a fully grown man who intends to be a father one day and he is not a rap star or the misconceived stereotypes of people who dress like this step out of his house like this?…

I remember going out on a blind date with this guy who sounds so matured. I remember always looking forward to his chats until the date night.

Confused!

Perplexed!

Shocked!

I was forced to ask, “How old are you?” How on earth can a man in his early thirties dress like a twenty year old mommy’s boy. It was so disgusting, I even had to leave before the food was served.

Are you a rainbow???

You know that saying, the way you dress is the way you are addressed is not just for ladies alone. In my opinion, I feel a reasonable adult should dress as one. What is the point of flying your collar, pulling your pants beneath your waist. wearing awful haircut or wearing colorful matching belts and shoes! The amount you buy it doesn’t matter, please. It makes you appear cheap. Why don’t you invest that amount in matured adult-like outfit. You can read this 11 Ways Guys Dress Horribly Wrong.

 

Nigga, if you hate a tie so much and the thought of buttoning your shirt repels you, why don’t you just wear a decent tee and a neutral color pant and shoe. I really do not know how else to help you dress but you can read Men’s Fashion Magazines or even use google.

 

Not every lady loves to date a traffic light. A decent and smart lady, trust me will not date you because your style precedes who you really are. Except she’s one like you or she is just interested in something else about you which could be temporary.

 

Uncle, please learn…

…hold a girl down

Hello handsome,

I guess you are beginning to get tired of trying

Yeah!

Trying so hard at pleasing them all

But your charm is shallow

She doesn’t need you telling her about your exs

Or how low you earn

She doesn’t need to hear about your sexual prowess all the time

You can’t even take her out on a date

Without blabbing all about your life

You need to up your game

And learn how to hold a girl down

When Does Childbearing Become Shameful?

‘Her son is barely 6 months and she’s pregnant again?’

‘I used to think she would be one who understands what child spacing mean?’

‘Child spacing??? Her first child was just 8 months when she had her second.’

‘Jesus! She is so shameful to womanhood.’

‘I even used to think she is a career woman and would take time to pursue her career instead of birthing up and down like a dog. She just used marriage to put a full stop to her career.’

‘So disgusting.’

Letting Go…

img_9598

So many times in our lives, we hold on tight to the most mundane thing we ought to let go.
The only reason we find ourselves holding on to this is because we lack the strength to let go. A bad habit you wish to stop but feel you cannot, a friend that keeps bringing you down, that toxic relationship that keeps tearing you apart piece by pieces, that terrible job that keeps you away from achieving milestones in life, that particular course you find no joy in doing but have to because your parent decide you must do it, that abusive marriage that will one day take your life if you don’t walk away soon…

From the Archives: The Night

I am back again with another post from my archives. This was written in 2011. After reading this, I really wonder what was going through my mind as I penned this down…I really wish…

 

Souls moan in anguish of our cruelty

Hens return to roost

The goats stop bleating

Birds cease to fly

Men retire to their bosom

And lovers cling to each other

Vehicles seek their parking lot

I sigh

                    head

                                   bent

Tea-rs

Flow rapidly

Where do I fit?

Woes was welcome 

I gaze u-p

And behold the sky

Despite the gloom

There is a ray of hope

The stars

In their tiny shape

Amass the sky

Illuminating my dark soul

Giving me a beam of light

Open Letter #1: To My Favorite Teacher

After reading Josephyna post on My Favorite Teacher, it evolved nostalgic memories about growing up and my mind raced back to the teachers I have met in my life and the one I have tagged my favorite teacher is…

Always wearing that big grin!

Dear Mr Ilesanmi,

It has been how many years now??? Should be 8 years since I last saw you. I was home for the holidays in my first year at the University. How we managed to see, I cannot remember now but we met at the new school you have been transferred to. We caught up on how life has treated us since we last saw 3 years after my high school graduation. It was a beautiful reunion. And yes I still learnt something from you that day: Persistence is the sustainable key to success.

Monday Motivation

img_8876

Very often, we make plans about what we wish for and we sometimes get disappointed as we don’t always get what we want. We aspire to achieve certain goals before a particular time and we get our hopes dashed due to circumstances beyond us. That does not define us as a failure. It is part of the sacrifices we just have to make. Always believe in yourself and agree with yourself that Whatever you have become, you have chosen to be. And you’d see yourself scaling greater heights than you can ever imagine.

Have a successful week ahead.

Cheers!

From the Archives

Over the weekend, I was cleaning my bookshelf and putting away old books so I can find space for new ones. And I stumbled on my poem anthology from way back. I opened and read and I was so nostalgic. Thanks to the fact that I dated some, I wouldn’t have been able to recollect what inspired them. It felt really cool reading your own piece from way back. I would be sharing some of these. Most of it are love inspired…please don’t laugh at me o and pardon any typos you see as I would be sharing unedited…

Today’s Motivation

Stop living your life based on other people’s opinion of you as long as they don’t feed you, clothe you or pay your bills! I am an advocate of this because sometimes I am guilty of it. I get so worried about making a decision because of what someone else will say. Eventually I do what is in my heart but in that moment of hesitation, you have shown just how weak you are and how you allow your life be controlled by others.

 

img_8709

Live your life as you would want to teach your child how to live hers. Stop waiting for their approval to make that choice. Whatever decision you make, you’d be the only one to live with it tomorrow. So why bother what they say or suggest?

Get on with it and live my dear! Have a beautiful weekend.

Cheers!
