MODESTLY CROPPED

Trends come and go and there are always the ones that stay for a while more than others. In my closet, the  peplum and crop fever still reigns and i find ways to incorporate them in my outfits. Although i love crop tops, i can not wear it with my abs out. Haha joke of the day..i don't have them yet but even if i had, i can not. My love for this garment made me to partner it with this white maxi, without revealing my tummy. 
I love the look and am still looking for other ways to wear my crop tops. Any suggestions?
Cheers..

Pet Peeves!

You know how you get so angry at things that look 'normal' to other people?..that's exactly what this post is all about today. I know I am not the only one who gets annoyed once in a while. By the way, i am not by any means confessing i am the most annoyed person.Rather, i'm just  airing out some petty things that still get into my nerves regardless.
  •  When you are in a nail salon and the technician keeps making mistakes and removing the polish several times! She wants to make it perfect but girl,I do not have the whole day.
  • On a bus, a full bus and the driver keeps stopping to pick up more people. Oga abeg, can't you see we are already full? Call me inconsiderate but if a bus is full should we not reach our destination just the way we are?
  • When the cashier holds up my money to see if the note is  real! The heck.
  • Ordering food at the fast food restaurant and they take a whole lot of time to bring your order. Ah, don't we call it fast food for a reason?
  •  People who chew with their mouths open or talk with food still in their mouths.
  • When the toilet sit is left up!!!
  • People who peep into my phone while I text on the bus or train. He he shall i hand it over to you to proof read?
  • People who say 'Me, I' What on earth is that?
  • When a wrong number calls and after they know it was a wrong number, go ahead and ask who i am. Eh?
  • People who play music in public with no earphones. I believe there is a special place for those people.
  • Gold diggers. I mean nose pickers!
  • People who reply one word/letter answers on whatsapp! K. Really?
What are some of your pet peeves? Do we have any in common, let your girl know. Enjoy your weekend:)

Cheers

INTO THE WOODS

Life favors those who speak out and ask for help. It's a good habit to ask for help or what you need when you don't have access to what ever you want. Society has made us believe that being on the receiving end is a sign of lack or weakness but truth is we all need help. No man is an island. 
I always wanted to own a dress like this one. I asked, and guess who owns a gorgeous dress rich in color? Alluding to 'Into the Woods', everyone in that movie from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack got help when they called out for it. In a nutshell, the message from everyone in 'Into the woods' and I is, be vocal. There are people willing to help!

THE GRASS IS GREENER

 The grass is greener on the other side for most people hence they live the rest of their lives in envy. Contrary to their belief, we (you and i) know the grass is always greener where you water it! Unless its artificial lol. I hope among your new year's resolutions is your sincere promise to stay in your lane, your whole lane and nothing but your lane. Make it your business to mind your own business this year and before you know it, you will be asked on how you're keeping your grass so green.
