THE DRESS...NOT THAT ONE!

Today’s gist is about The Dress…no not that dress that colour blind people were calling blue and black (I believe it was white and gold sha). Not that dress. This dress is another dress that my friend and I saw during the weekend. 

We were walking past a boutique when a dress got both our attention- it was a yellow tunic with one kind design like that, it looked so pretty- perfect dress for a casual date with bae. Me, I have perfected the art of looking and comoting eyes…I never ever enter boutiques. Nigerian boutiques. Sorry, Lagos boutiques. My friend on the other hand could not comot eye, the dress was calling her through the shinning glass- "come, come and buy, come and buy".

So we went in, me I pretended I wasn't interested in the dress and went to look for other items they had to offer. I could sense that in that moment the sales girl was confused-she didn't know whether to follow me, or keep her eyes glued on my friend that was pricing the market. Thank God she went to meet my friend because I really really dislike when I am window shopping and a sales assistant is breathing down my neck. Can’t a girl just come and look and go? LOL

PROMISED LAND STAGES RCCG EPIC CRUCIFIXTION STORY


- Crucifixion victims had the bones in their legs broken to enable soldiers nail it properly to the cross. 

- Fear of torture and death led Peter to deny Jesus. 

- The same crowd that hailed Jesus called for his execution less than a week later .

- Jesus’ crucifixion was one of the goriest of its kind in roman and Jewish history. 

- Jesus died faster partly due to the extent of the injuries he sustained prior to the actual crucifixion. 

Do you know all the little details that are part of the crucifixion story? Can you understand the level of sacrifice he made? 

The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Promised Land presents #TheJesusIncident a stage play that tells the crucifixion of Jesus from a different point of view. 

See Jesus from the eyes of a reporter, a mother, a thief, an onlooker, a friend and a victim on Saturday 4th of April at RCCG Promised Land, Hitech Road (Beside Lagos Business School), Ajah 

#TheJesusIncident ….Don’t miss it!

IWO NIKAN BY ARAMIDE HAS BEEN ON REPLAY!



I was going through my Youtube subscription feed and I came across this video by Aramide. I like that it's a different kind of tune, not every time shake your bombom or jinjinkpakpa music,  sometimes songs like this make much more sense. 

I love the song, the video and the girl is cute! LOL. I've never listened to any of her songs before so I proceeded to watch all her videos which is why I added another video at the bottom. Are you feeling the babe?

TELL THE WORLD HOW MUCH YOU LOVE YOUR MOM & GET REWARDED

Everyone has a distinct recollection of a particularly touching moment when the realization of how much a mom is worth finally dawned and Mothers' Day was carved out for us to do something special for these very special people.

An epiphany that is so strong, that it stays for a long time – if not forever, is what a mom memory carries for different individuals. That moment is nostalgic, emotional and unforgettable! It enforces the bond created at birth between a mother and a child and so if your mom is still alive, please leave whatever you are doing and go tell her that you love her because that is the only thanks she has ever wanted and desired.

GUYS: 5 SIGNS SHE'S NOT INTO YOU AT ALL!!

Today I want to help my brothers, I know some of you read my blog...shout out to you! I was listening to Sharing Life Issues With ChazB and this bros was complaining that he's in a relationship with a babe, but she never calls, hardly picks his calls, he went on to list a bunch of things and was asking what he should do. 

My guy, I want to help you today-if there's this babe you've been toasting since forever and no matter what you do , she no gel for you, then you have to move on. You might think you're in a relationship but it's all one chance. The good thing is that there are so many tell tale signs but it's like you men don't see them quickly, and most women would hardly tell you when they are not interested, they want you to figure it out, now shine your eyes:

HOW TO BE RELEVANT AT A NIGERIAN PARTY (OWAMBE)

Nigerian’s throw the most extravagant, fun parties ever! Argue with me in the comments section if you don’t agree-no party like a Lagos party. My favorite Owambe’s are wedding receptions. So why do I want to be relevant at another person’s owambe you ask? Well it is just for the reason that I do not want to be a spectator/observer, sitting in the corner tweeting about how much fun I’m having when I’m not., I want to be an active enjoyer of the occasion. So let me tell you 5 things you can do to be relevant at an Owambe:

YOUR THOUGHTS ON EKU EDEWOR'S SHOOT FOR THISDAY STYLE? #LIGHTSKIN #DARKSKIN

I saw the photos for Eku and Lynxxx's ThisDay Style‘s Sunday 1st March 2015 edition and to be honest I saw nothing wrong with it... until someone pointed out that why is she light skinned and her "slaves" dark skinned i.e "light skin being glorified as queen while being served by the dark skinned minions" Why are the "slaves" so young? (unlooks).

Is this picture promoting #TeamLightSkin as better off? (This battle will never end)

Me I don't know. But the more I look at the photo, the more I think I agree with the critics. I know the shoot was to portray cultural heritage...still. What do you think?

MONDAY CHIT-CHAT: STARTING OVER!



Hello my people… 

How body? 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend? 

I was going to write a very nice post this morning complete with pictures and video clips because I had a really good weekend but all that changed when I inserted my disk into my laptop and discovered it wasn’t reading! I’m actually fighting the urge not to sweat under the AC that is blowing me before people will begin to think that something more than picture is worrying me.

TERRAKULTURE FOOD LOUNGE REVIEW

This review has been a long time coming- since October of 2014!!! Imagine that!!! How come? I first had a meal at the food lounge in October with Bobo but I wanted to get a second experience before doing a review which is what I’m doing today. I went again last week so my review is up to date.

JOIN THE DEBATE: WHAT COLOURS ARE ON THIS DRESS?


I woke up to a BB message from my friend Simi asking me what colour a certain dress was and since I believe my eyes are working fine: I told her what I thought the colours were. Gold and white. 

Surprisingly that's where all the higgihagga is from-not everyone is seing what I'm seeing. On twitter some people say na blue and black den dey see, some na blue and gold. Is this a joke??? This dress s gold and white!!! 

Please join the debate and talk true make devil shame: what colours can you see? #TeamWhiteGold or #TeamBlueBlack ?

HOW TO DEAL WITH NEGATIVE & POSITIVE BLOG COMMENTS!

My fellow bloggers, how are you all doing? There was a time I got an email asking how I deal with negative comments on my blog; I’m not sure if I responded to that email but today I am responding publicly so that everyone can see. 


Let me start from the beginning: story story….the first day I started blogging (then with the name GISTDOTCOM) …the first comment my blog was baptized with was a negative comment. It made me feel terrible and I cried like a baby to Bobo “they hate my blog!” …he was like “calm down, don’t take it personal”…how won’t I take it personal? Someone took their precious time to write something like “stop blogging, your blog is terrible”…how is that not personal?

HOW WAS YOUR NIGHT?

This morning I was led by my hunger cravings and decided I wanted bean ball burger (that’s for the ajebo people) but really it is just akara from the woman down the road plus bread. As I was walking down the road I saw that hot puff-puff guy and I said to him and his goods “get thee behind me, I shall not be tempted today”…the day I search for him he will not pass, today that I want akara he’s knacking his showglass kom kom kom near me.
