MONDAY CHIT-CHAT : MEET MR & MRS O!


My people I don reach the permanent site oh|: there was no traffic, no accident...it was a smooth ride. A lot of things didn't go as planned but it was perfect!!! For example Bobo called me Oluwasophie instead of Oluwayemisi when he was reading his vows...and everyone burst into laughter. He didn't even know he said that!...when I walked into the wedding reception come see ginger! It was so fabulous!!! I didn't want the party to end oh...gbo gbo ara l'on ro mi but thank God there is husband now: we go dey massage each other noni. LOL.

I MET FRANCIS, MY HUBBY ON PALMCHAT (PART 1)

The morning rush hour was bad, very bad. I have been in Lagos all my life and I have seen traffic gridlock but that misty July Wednesday morning was simply soul wrenching. Not to say being stuck in traffic wasn’t my fault, you know what they say about giving excuses; especially if you are a corporate staff of a time-conscious org and you happen to have an appointment with the boss at 9:00 am in the same morning.

MY FAB HAIR FROM MERCY HAIR EXTENSIONS!


Hey lovelies, I've been getting so many questions about this hair and it is no surprise: I mean, the hair speaks for itself- it's gorgeous!!! I received the hair from Mercy Hair Extensions and she was so sweet in her interaction with me....so kind as well! This video and post is a basic show and tell and soon I'll upload more videos about this hair. I did a mini showcase of the hair on my YouTube Channel ( that's the video below). Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE by clicking HERE 

HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
  • Human Or Synthetic | It's human hair...it's the mongolian kinky curly.
  • Density | It is silky soft, very lightweight even though it looks huge!
  • Length | I got three bundles of hair in 18 inches but I used just two bundles.
  • How long I've worn it | I've worn it for about 3 weeks now: I got it in June
  • Flexibility | This hair can be washed, coloured, bleached, straightened, my oh my! Check @mercyhairextensions on Instagram and see what other ladies have done with this hair!
  • Curly Pattern |The curl pattern is kinky curls....just soft spirally ringlets, very pretty, almost identical to my own hair just that mine is darker.
  • Tangling/Shedding |Curly hair tangles easily but this hasn't, It sheds just a teeny bit and thats because the wefts in front were cut. I barely experience tangling as well.
  • Maintenance | Curly hair can be tricky but it's been okay for me. I spray it with my water bottle everyday, to keep it nice and juicy and I have conditioned it twice.
  • Weave Or Wig | It is in a weave! I actually sat down for an hour plus to install it! I cannot remember the last time I went to a salon, maybe late 2013! Not every time wig, wig...
  • Contact Details | Mercy's Hair Extensions www.mercyhairextensions.com | Instagram @mercyhairextensions
P.S I love this hair and I have received so many compliments that it is my best hair yet! *Sekem

WHY NIGERIAN RESTAURANTS ARE ANNOYING! JUST SAY IT - WANAWANA

This topic WanaWana is talking about is something I experience every time especially as I tend to be a foodie and get to eat out a lot (It's my calling, don't hate). Isn't it just frustrating when you go to a restaurant, they give you their menu and after salivating over the contents you begin to order only to find out most of it is not available...isn't that annoying??? 

Typical Conversation 
Customer: "Do you have dodo?"
Waiter: "No but we have fried yam"
Customer: "Give me Efo Riro"
Waiter: "Sorry madam we only have vegetable"

P A U S E

Customer: "Ok. Tell me all you have"
Waiter: "We have Eba, Semo, Beans, Yam,GoatMeat, Cowleg, Fish, Vegetable"
Customer: "Ok, Give me vegetable and Semo and goatmeat"

**Waiter runs off, comes and comes back maybe 5 minutes later**

Waiter: "Sorry madam, we don't have goat meat"
This is the point when I usually get up and leave. LOL

I think another one I find annoying is when a restaurant displays pictures of food they clearly cannot prepare: the kind of jollof rice on the photo display is different, the type you see on your plate is less than palatable: that annoys me! 

Watch this video to see more of what Wana says and share also what annoys you about restaurants or other things.

#BUGOSOMTO2014 : A WEDDING FEATURE!


My friend Bugo got married on the 28th of June and we have all been anticipating this wedding! They’ve been dating for a while as well, about 9 years! So it’s beautiful to see the relationship evolve into marriage! 9 years is not beans and plantain. I met Bugo while I was studying for my masters in University of Birmingham and one thing I love about her is that she’s such a stan for her friends, ever optimistic, driven and ambitious. I really admire those qualities about her.  I took all these photographs with my new beloved camera lens, I can’t wait to see the official photos. Make una manage this one! For more videos and photos of the event, follow me on instagram and search the hashtag #BugoSomto2014 . The wedding was so much fun and was planned by the bride! I'm very impressed!
