Happy new month everyone! And happy Nigerian Independence Day! Woohoo! This picture was taken this morning and I'm glowing because I'm having a wonderful weekend, this is my very first Independence Day I the last 6 years, and most of all because this is my birthday month! I pray this new month meets you all well, I pray you find love, happiness and peace this month, and I pray for my country Nigeria, that it may grow to its full potential. Eat good food, drink sweet wine, and turn up!

Now let's jump right into it. The idea of you can't please everyone is probably the realest statement I've ever heard. In everything you do, people will always try to tell you how to do it. Be it how to eat, how to walk, how to talk, and even how to pray. Everyone feels there way is the best way. I try to keep my blog as controversy free as possible, but of course you can't be 100% spotless all the time. I love to share trending things on my social media platforms such as articles on police brutality, and this week's trending one on Nigerian Twitter of a certain Taiwo who took his 3year fiancé on a maga spree. Of course people will always tell me that I shouldn't be so open with my oppinion partaining to certain issues, and that I should just learn to see things and ignore them. But for me I think that's just ridiculous. Everyone chooses how they want to live there life, and everyone chooses how they want to leave an impact in the world. When it comes to minding my business, I'm pretty good at that. I don't jump in on people's conversations or try to make myself part of scenarios that do not concern me. But as for sharing my oppinion on my platform, I feel as a member of this society and one who loves to write, it's my entitlement and no one can tell me how to write my articles or what to feel about certain situations. I mean hey, that's what got people like Linda Ikeji a house, excuse me I mean a castle in Banana Island. Not saying I'm a Linda Ikeji, but I sure would love to be half of get some day.
Do you ever feel like your tongue is being held back or a person is trying to control the way you do things? We all do, and we have our ways of dealing with it. How do you deal with it?

A bra, a small piece of under clothing used to support the female chest. Who would have ever guessed it could become such a big deal. A lot of my friends were beginning to wear bras and I wasn't about to be left out of the loop. One faithful day a friend of mine wore a new bra to school and I was just so amazed at how a little piece of under garment made her uniform look so much better than mine. I just had to have a piece of that bra. So after lunch during bathroom break I had a little discussion with her in the bathroom and she agreed to borrow me her bra, but she insisted that she needed to have it back after school before her mom found out. So we did the "switcheroo" and we were off. I was loving my "borrowed" bra like not other. It kind of made me feel like a grown woman in some sense.

In July, Dani Mathers Snapchatted a photo of herself looking horrified next to a naked woman at an L.A. Fitness with the caption, “If I can’t unsee this, then you can’t either" (how disgusting). People immediately called Dani out for her mean-girl move, and she was fired from her job as a radio host. She was also banned from all L.A. Fitness gyms.
According to People, Dani later posted an apology video on Snapchat. "That was absolutely wrong and not what I meant to do," she said. "I know that body shaming is wrong. That is not the type of person I am."

This is something i've always wondered about, but thanks to an article I came across from indiatimes I no longer have the big question mark on my head when the flight attendant wakes me up during landing to open my window.
Lifting the shades on the windows during take-off and landing might seem like a trivial ask to many airplane passengers. Some travellers believe that this to prepare them for the jolty landing moment when the wheels hit the concrete below.
But experts have now revealed the reasons why it is much more important to passenger safety than you would think.
