An encounter I’d never forget

I’ve always thought I’m a dog person …I have loads of dogs to showfor it…fortunatelay,an experience taught me otherwise .I met a friend during my service year in Ibadan , a sometime Mr Ideal Nigeria  …As expected,he’s a very big somebody ,complete with the perfect six packs and a well ribbed body .We had two prominent things in common,”our love for dogs and events” ..Soon enough ,he kept talking about how big and wonderful his dog ”terry” is and how I’d love him at first sight ..

  One day ,after attending one of our numerous fashion shows together ,I figured I could go see this ”wonder dog” ,who knows ,i’d take a few photos with him(for the gram ofcourse)..on our way back,we stopped by Mr Biggs to get food .He ordered four packaged foods(with an extra piece of chicken in 2 packs )..I didn’t understand this but I figured it was either he had to eat extra because of his size or we were going to eat first rounds and second rounds ..whatever his reason was ,I was definitely up for more well sauced chicken .

     We got home,got into the compound and that was when I realized my mistake ..a little too late I must say .I SCREAMED,THIS IS NO DOG,THIS IS A LION..”Terry,the loving dog ” was in actual fact few inches shy of my height(at this point,i must categorically remind you that i am no dwarf),with big ,georgeous hairs that’d make ”our instagram slayqueens” hide their faces in shame….And when he did smile(atleast,that was what the owner told me he was doing),he revealed big ,strong teeth that looked like it can do and undo.

  I remained in the car,with the door tightly locked ..how could I come down?..This terry dog was definitely not my type!!!…I guess ”terry” felt my discomfort because he came over to my side to give me his ”special terry welcome” ..i literally froze there ..I cursed out my ancestors and my village people ,”why did they ever let me make such a stupid decision ”, they were supposed to be watching my every move ..All this things we do for the gram is probably what’s going to bring my end .

   Terry didn’t leave,he stayed there,waiting patiently ..And that was when I remembered I had his food(in my excited mood,I had forgotten he’d told me the other packs of food was for terry,and me in my i too know self had volunteered to feed him)..after much appeasing and coercing from my friend,I came down and somehow fed the dog ..I did take some photos of course but I’m never going to post that …Nahhh…that’s no more for the gram ..

P:S …Terry is now my best friend ,my very own dog-lion (as i like to call him),so y’all should think twice before you mess with me..he’s a wonderful ,sweet big dog..Recently,i ran into @ajaajidekennel on instagram and saw some amazing photos @jideajayipetphotography took..it brought back pleasant memories​
 ..I have so many more dog stories from where this one came from ..hopefully,with time ,y’all would get to hear them…also,i look forward to hearing your dog stories in the comment section if you have any .

Enclosed here are some random dog photos i like

Do have a wonderful Wednesday

Makeup and makeovers

Hey lovelies …I really feel I should start this with a happy new year greeting because it seems like ages since the last time we connected …I have to specially apologise for my silence but I must say,it’s not easy combining work with blogging coupled with the fact that I encountered a writer’s block recently .The good news is,I’m back, and today,i’d be talking about something important ,something most ladies can’t do without.Yes,i said this because i know quite a number of ladies who don’t feel complete without their makeup on …heck!!!.. some months ago,i would have comfortably fit into this description .I sincerely cannot leave the house without drawing my brows,using brown compact powder and applying my mascara..infact ,one day i went out without makeup and some persons reactions wowed me.its safe to say that from that day,my beauty routine was revisited.

                   Makeups range from the simple application of powder and eye pencils to going the full length (I.e ..having extreme makeovers complete with faux lashes and eye contacts).it’s worthy to note that different occasions call for different looks .Therefore,one must learn which look is suitable for what occasion to avoid coming off as a drag queen or an insecure wannabe.you should know that some makevers can transform you into an entirely different person as you’d see in some of the photos i’d post below .

      Thankfully,the age we’re in now have made it possible for us to learn just about anything off the internet provided we’re ready to learn .To this effect,we have so many self acclaimed ”professional makeup artists”..if you’re one ,great news but somehow ,this post is more or less for those who aren’t professionals yet.

   Now,let’s imagine that you’re amongst the few who’d want their face beat” (makeup done)  by a makeup artist but you don’t know who to meet or where to go to meet one ..I’d be suggesting a good number of them to you .(I’m doing this because I’ve worked either with them or seen their handworks )…also,I’d be posting some makeover photos so you’d know we’re in for business .

The easy thing is ,you can search this names up on instagram and take it up from there ..That said,if you’re in Ibadan ,and you need a go to badass makeup artist ,these persons won’t disappoint .

  • @Lolade_Mlpro​​
  • @jonaksmeikova​​


  • @oseibeautyplus​

I really don’t know much about lagos makeup artists but thankfully,that’s where you come in…which makeup artist do you think I should have mentioned ?,whom have you worked with? or better still indicate if you’re a makeup artist and we all will check you out.Don’t forget that their instagram handles should be dropped too,this will make it easier to find them.

Your comments are really important ..don’t leave without dropping one.

P:s — all the photos in yellow are of me..and they’re more of bridalglam inspired looks .(this doesn’t mean they cannot do other kinds of makeup because they absolutely can)

That said,I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Xoxo
