A few of my favourite things -May

 

Hey guys,

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)



2. Semo:

  

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:

  

I bought these about a month ago on Jumia for N4495 (although I had a voucher so I only paid N2695). It comes in a variety of prints and colours. Just search for ‘shoe republic la plimsoll” on Jumia



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!

What I Wore: Lady In Valentine’s Red

Ello baes! Happy Valentine’s!! Kisses all around! *muah*

No hair related news for now. My hair is still in braids but I’m not sure the braids will see the end of today because I am so tired of the style already.

Anyways, I decided I was going to wear this red dress yesterday with sneakers to work and I thought to do a day to night look for the blog as well.

Dress: Papaya

To be honest, I am liking the outfit posts and I hope you are too.

Hope you’re spending the day with the one(s) you love. If you’re like me, you’re going to be in bed all day falling in and out of love sleep. Enjoy it either ways.

And if you’re feeling sad, remember self love is what’s most important and remember that I love you and God loves you too!
Here’s a really awesome post to lift your spirit(watch the video; it’s the best part)-> How To Be Alone

Also, Lagosians the 10th edition of NITC(a natural hair meet-up) is on the 7th of March so save the date.

Lots of love and warm hugs from me to you!
