fun sunday

today was one of the fulfilling days i have had in a long time, coming back from a long journey yesterday , fagged out with no interest in anything whatsoever, i knew i had to make the best of Sunday. i had a thousand and one things to do and just knowing that was stress on it's own.i woke up 5am , did a bit of office work , went to church and had an awesome time in God's presence. today was testimony /thanksgiving Sunday and just listening to people talk about how God turned things for the better was uplifting, i saw two friends i haven't seen in a while and it felt good to catch up.
being away for a week, i missed my family so i decided to hang out with my cousins , we dressed up, took photos and went to the movies .PS : if you haven't seen jumping the broom , i suggest you do! the movie was awesome , we" awwwed", and laughed and cried! ( covering my face) , a must watch ,and i shall buy a copy to keep, it is one of those movies you wont get tired of seeing.
i love my family and spending time with them is always a memorable one. hope your weekend is going on well, have a lovely week ahead guys xxx

comfy coach

Yesterday I spent the whole day in heels and trust me it wasn't funny at all. I decided to give my feet good rest today and that's what influenced my outfit. I am happy I made that decision cos it is 8pm and am just returning back to my hotel room. Now, am attending a retreat and there are no restrictions to dress code ! So I really wonder why I was stressing yday !
These coach bev sneakers are heaven sent and a must have! I swear I can do anything in them(sleep inclusive), talk about comfort!

I may not have liked the retreat location but I have learnt so much here and that's what's important
Hope your week is going on

where is the LOVE ?? :(

with all the recent happenings in my beloved country, i cant help to wonder why ???, it has been a rough year thus far..lots of lives lost for the most silly of reasons or excuses! i wish we all sit back and reflect on where all of the strife is heading us to. it is sad :(, to think that people woke up this morning ready to start out as usual and now are lying DEAD!, it is sad a child somewhere has lost his father , mother..a woman her husband , we need to sit back and think..WHERE IS ALL OF THESE LEADING US TO???

as i read through the highlights of the news today, all that came to my head was this song: WHERE IS THE LOVE? by the blackeyed peas , so i'v decided to post the lyrics of the song because it makes a whole lot of sense and is picture of what we are seeing in this times!

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

The TEA with benefits (HEALTH WATCH PEEPS)

Ever heard that green tea is good for u?? Well, i research on all sorts of stuff, and while trying to look up  natural  substances that can help with weight loss, i came across numerous articles on the use of green tea. Apparently, this isn’t a recent discovery , the Chinese have long adopted this herb into their diet as far back as 4000 yrs!! hmmm.
Green tea is high in polyphenols which has high antioxidant powers, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it also helps to oxidize fat ( this is why it is recommended for weight loss) click and read about a recent study on the benefits of green tea for weight loss. there are also other numerous benefits of green tea asides cancer prevention and fat oxidation , click
Here is my personal experience.....
Because i love to experiment and try out new stuff (last year, i added APPLE CIDAR vinegar to my drinking water to help reduce belly WORKED !) ,
I decided to find out how true this wonder tea can be, i still am drinking green tea and i must say i have noticed a change in my body system. This tea enables me  empty my bowels every morning, it boosts my energy level because it contains caffeine. it  also has increased my metabolic rate (i have a slow one), i recently fitted into a skirt which was seemingly too tight and "THOUGHT PROVOKING" as my cousin would say  lol, and yay!!, i can see my collar bones now (a major sign for me;)) I think anyone seeking to shed a bit of weight can try it out, though i recommend you get an organic brand. I started out with LIPTON and i saw no changes, immediately i switched to an organic brand ..voila!!! 
I take it morning and evenings, if u want to have an early night tho, avoid taking it at will keep you up and alert.

this is the brand am currently drinking, you can get flavored ones too!

Share your green tea experience with me please, for more info on the TEA with benefits, Google benefits of green tea 
Thanks for stopping by, i hope someone finds this

yesterday i went to visit my sister and her friend Dorcas, as much as i love to be behind the camera taking people's fotos, i also love to pose every now and then :)
i made dorcas take fotos of me (truthfully..i bullied her!). am wearing an organza sequin top  paired with skinny jeans and ballerina flats. while i feel the nyt time would do a lot of justice to this top, i still wore it during daytime. in conclusion i had a good time with Dorcas. cant wait to get a bad ass camera :), for now,my BB TORCH will suffice
top : SIMPLY VERA WANG you can shop here
bangle wit zipper detail, a gift from Nike, i love it, goes wella with denim
shoes by TOP TREND
Dorcas..mmmuah! I love her ATMOSPHERE tank top the zip details does it for me, thanks dear :)

beauty tips??

wouldn't you want to know what Beyonce and her likes do to keep themselves looking all glam and silky? i bet we all would!.  this is what famous actress Audrey Hepburn had to say about her beauty tips.. gets me thinking ?
For attractive lips,
speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure,
share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair,
let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise,
walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
---Audrey Hepburn

and he gave each of them TALENTS.

i dont usually like to read , but every now and then, i come across a write up that touches me in the deepest part of  my soul. it is amazing to see how gifted people are at the stuff they do, just reading a poem and you wonder how the writer came about those words and his ability to open your mind to the message between the lines .
it truly is amazing.. we all have gifts and like a friend of mine would say, " we must put these talents and gifts to good use, it is the reason we are on planet earth". So i ask myself today, Uduak, what talent(s)do you have????!
i will like to acknowledge 2 of my friends who write so beautifully and inspire people while they are it. so here is to TOLU AKINYEMI (click to read some of his poems )and OMONIKE ODI of omonaikee.blogspot. splurge into the world of WORDS and get lost in them! happy reading :)

that is a sign post of a hotel in Benue Nigeria..lwkmd!! naija for life peeps.
