Don’t Have Much? 4 Ways to Manage Those Few Clothes {& Still Feel Good!}

I don’t pride myself as someone who has too many clothes. Maybe now, I’m a bit better (even though I still never find anything to wear whenever I have an event) but at some point in my life, I could literally count how many good clothes I had. Throughout my first 2-3 years in Uni, most of the clothes I had were courtesy of my beautiful cousins – aunty Taiwo & Kenny Olorunsogo; my friends from whose wardrobes I always stole from {Ope Harun and Debby, hope you guys are seeing this}; and a few other big sisters {like Funto Ibuoye, Tope Omotayo & Ife Omotosho} whose clothes just always found their way to me, somehow. Thank you, guys! Read more

Social Media Hypocrisy: How Exactly Is Your Life OFF-line?

Sincerely guys, the way I feel writing this post, I can only hope that words would properly convey them exactly to you.

Hey Family,

We still haven’t chosen a name to call ourselves o. Is Yadians okay? You guys let me know what you think. Sincerely, writing these posts have been reflective for me.

One day, I’ll write my biography and you guys will read all about it. For now however, I’ll just share a couple of lessons I picked along the way. Already, I’ve shared the first five on this list, as derived from an addiction I once had with sex. Today, I’m sharing another five, this time on finances. We all need these. Read more

Becoming #3: Why Am I Doing The Things I’m Doing?

Heeeellllo you! I hope you are fine. Personally, I’m not. Something happened this morning that kinda weighed me down. So, I was critiqued on something I do with all my heart and it really pained me. However, I’m learning that sometimes, on our journey to becoming excellent at work, fulfilling purpose, being great spouses to someborri or great parents, we’ll get critiqued and corrected (maybe even on the things we thought we were doing right).

Wow! so much for a digression!  Oya, let’s get right into today’s question: Why Am I Doing The Things I’m Doing? Read more

Beautified #5: . . . But I have Small Boobs (My Story)

Hi guys, now this one is mine. It’s quite bare and sensitive but writing it made it really easy. As a teen, I had doused myself in pornography and a loooot of romance novels. Because of this, the idea of a woman’s sexuality to me was never completely defined without large boobs.  So, when it became apparent while growing up that I wasn’t going to have large boobs, I became really insecure.
