Nigerians and Religion

Lately, there have been a lot of stories about religious leaders having sexual relations with their members or basically not just behaving as the "Men of God" that they claim to be and i have been thinking about this a lot and how much Nigerians have been talking and bashing them and i  just feel like Most Nigerians do not understand the concept of God and spirituality enough. Else all this issues won't be on the front burner. Having a relationship with God goes beyond just going to church or mosque or even respecting Pastor A or Imam B. It is creating your own link and communication channel with the almighty such that you can hear from him directly and talk to him wherever whenever and however. the pastor or imam can only preach it doesn't mean they are the model of what god wants you to be.As a person you should be willing to go the extra mile to recognize who the creator is and what he wants from you once you have that locked down, you don't need to worry or b…

Is Marriage an achievement?

Marriage is the coming together of two people into a union that should last forever . It is a beautiful thing, It is super cute and amazing but lately people are beginning to see it like it is a do or affair and for those people who get married it becomes a thing of show off and they immediately start to feel like they are better than the single people which shouldn't be so and also people begin to feel like because you are married you should loose yourself and just become a completely new person....I mean i had a life before deciding to welcome this person in so please allow me and forgive if i refuse to fit in your idea of how a "married" person should act or not . In my opinion i do not see marriage as an achievement but rather as a blessing you get from Almighty Allah and one should not look down on others who are yet to receive theirs and stop expecting people to fit into your idea of a married person should be or not be...till i write again its Mrs M  

Fashion UPDATE

Image
lately school has been stressful and so i had no time to give you update as it concerns my style and outfits so i decided to compile some of recent pictures and a few new things i decided to try ....here we go...



I bought the kimono/jacket at a thrift store and i always liked pairing with only my white top but that day i just felt i should try my nude top instead and it came out great....
I also paired it with my Gold sandals and i was as good as a rocking star....(one day i would you talk about the story behind the sandals)
I have always loved face-caps but no clue on how to pair them with my style so that day in class i just took my course mate's cap and took pictures and i loved the outcome....I am definitely trying it soon Smiling Queen Raffy

Places i would love to viist before i die

I have  a lot of places i would love to visit before i die but i would be writing about my top 5.
1. The Gambia also know as the smiling coast of Africa with a population of about  2 million is top on my list because i haven't been able to stop thinking about this country since it was featured in a particular movie i watched. I am also intrigued about how the 3 weekend holiday they enjoy also  works. so call me crazy but the Gambia is definitely a must see for me God willing.


The Arch 22 monument
2. Abu Dhabi is next on my list in fact the whole of the United Arab Emirates is a place i would love to visit before i die. the beauty of the place and how much is said about just makes me fantasize about how beautiful it would be to in such a place. the movie sex and the city also fueled my love to visit the place and at least enjoy the sights and sounds. unknown to many people Abu Dhabi is actually the capital of the UAE unlike the Dubai that most people are familiar with.    



3. Rwand…

If you cant marry a LIBRARIAN the be one.....

Image
The day i got my admission and it read library information technology it took me just about 2 mins to come to terms with it because i had spent up to 4 yrs at home looking for admission so to finally get one was enough joy for me....after the excitement had subsided though i started to think about the course and honestly it was my first time of hearing about it so i ran to almighty google to search. after my search i told myself it wasn't such a bad course after all it had information technology. Most times when i tell people what am studying the next question they ask with disgust is Library?what will you do with library blah blah...So I have always wanted to do something to let people know that the library is not  just a place with old  books but that it is much more... from electronic databases to helping you with your assignments and providing internet for browsing and also giving you a place to think.The library is go -to- Source for all that need so i was happy when as part …

Yoruba Proverbs Challenge

I was inspireded by my friend who started her Hausa proverbs challenge on Instagram a few days to the new year, basically it involved her uploading a 1 min video everyday of herself talking about a Hausa proverb, what it means and how one could apply it. i completed mine despite slow network and all the other issues i encountered. so i would be uploading a few of them here.

Happy New year to you. May your plans and dreams come through and become better than what you imagined ( ameen).What did you get up to on the new year give mi the gist joor.. Before you give your gist let me tell you mine as a good girl that I am now. Here it goes:
                I ushered in the new year in Lagos this time around which is a contrast to what I have done in the last two years. Usually I crossover into the new year in the  Radio station studio where I volunteer because my boss makes it a big party,  with suya, drinks and music( duh, it is a radio station and we have super dope DJs ) but since I got married and I was in lag is spending the time with Mr M I missed out on the fun at the studios I mean they even had Cake this year. Well as if Mr M knew I was sulking from all the fun I missed in the studio, he decided to take me out and honestly I did enjoy myself but then just a big warning to you please do not attempt going to the malls during the festive seasons oh.
