Hey lovely people,
It’s that beautiful time again.
Nafisah and Oge who blog at Coily Head of Hair and I are presently having a giveaway.
How’s your Sunday going? Hope you have Sunday rice planned, ready, cooking or in your tummy because eating anything else on Sunday is a sin according to some unwritten but binding rule.
Here’s what happened when I tried to boil yam one fateful Sunday:
As I mentioned in my last post, I had a hard time figuring out what I loved in May but here’s what I came up with.
1. Things in threes:
I like to take pictures! And I tend to take pictures of the oddest things according to those who know me.
Anyways, I recently found that taking pictures with a theme in mind helps keep things a bit ‘organized’. It’s not as fun as being spontaneous but it’s fun nonetheless.
The theme I had in my head for the three pictures below is ‘things in threes’.
(‘Trees in threes’. Try saying that three times fast)
When I was younger I hated a number of foods. The major culprits were beans, boiled eggs, fried rice and especially swallows in all varieties. I now eat these things but I’m still very picky about swallows. I only eat semo, wheat and pounded yam.
Allow me to say that semo is bae! I ate semo at least 1-2 times a week this entire month.
Unfortunately I’m so bad at making it. Yesterday I made some and my brother said “Jennifer this part is not done”. I gave him the look of death and told him to shut up and eat.
Any tips on making perfect semo? Please tell me in the comments.
3. My current protective style:
These are twists done with about 16 packs of wool/yarn and I’ve had them for a little over 5 weeks now.
I have been super lazy with them that’s why I’m loving them. Since I’ve had them, I’ve moisturized 2 times, cleaned my scalp once with baby wipes and oiled my scalp about 6 times.
4. My butterfly print plimsolls:
5. Fresh Yo:
I’m obsessed with this Fresh Yo stuff yo! I buy it everyday(which is so unhealthy). And it’s not even cheap sef (N200). But it’s so yummy. It also comes in a strawberry flavoured version.
And those are my favourite things from May!

So the blog is 2! And the giveaway is finally over.
First of all, the answer to the JAMB question; what two things on my Christmas wishlist have I gotten? The iPhone 6 and the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner!!
If you guessed it right, you smart (you loyal, go buy your mama a house). There were a total of 29 entries and I was actually quite surprised because 13 people got the answer right! How una take know biko (tell me in the comment section please).
Some people did not follow the rules of the giveaway at all! Some commented and didn’t follow the blog, some mentioned only one item they thought I’d gotten, some said it was iPhone and DSLR they wanted to win (ah!!!!) meanwhile those weren’t what I was giving away oh. I won’t mention names *zips lips*
As the sweet, merciful soul that I am, I forgave and overlooked all sins and accepted all comments as valid entries seeing as this is the first giveaway.
Without further blabbing, by random selection (with the aid of a random number generator), the winner of the giveaway is Ify!!! *fireworks*
Don’t run off just yet people. I decided to give away the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie from my BoonBox (since I had one already) as a ‘consolation prize’.
Another random selection (after removing Ify’s name) and Funke won!!
Congratulations to both ladies! I will email you shortly but if you do not get an email from me by the end of the day, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you didn’t win, cheer up! There will always be a next time. And thank you for entering the giveaway!
