6 Top Distractions: How to reduce its negative effect.

The first half of 2017 is over…..like…literally OVER. Have you taken a stock count? How did you fare? At the beginning of the year, we had a lot of goals lined out and as I always advocate, I’m hoping we’ve been taking baby steps to achieve one goal at a time. We may not have…

WordSearchSeries#16: Febrile + Choosing the sex of a Child

Early start for me this morning as work resumes today. We had Monday and Tuesday off work because of the Muslim holiday (Eid el Fitr) so it was a really long weekend. Talk about the work week starting on hump day. *rolls eye*  Anyway, Wednesday is always scheduled for #WordSearchSeries on the blog and the…

Basic tips to handle ‘being taken for granted’.

A public holiday on a monday is definitely bliss….Isn’t it? Here’s wishing all my muslims readers a Happy Eid el Fitr. Even though I’m not a Muslim, I get to enjoy the day off work today.

Life Nuggets from ‘Wonder Woman’.

One of the days I really didn’t feel like staying home, I grabbed my purse and headed to the cinemas. Just like that….I’m too spontaneous sometimes I fear I might get into trouble.

The Halleluyah Challenge

Alleluia.. Hallelujah… Halleluyah…. I have never really been able to stick to a particular spelling (what spelling do you prefer?) but anyway the #HalleluyahChallenge is currently quite popular amongst Nigerians on Instagram and Facebook.  Not just Nigeria, if I do say so myself as CNN had something to say about it too…. I am huge…

It was such an emotional day.  We laid my maternal grandpa to rest today and it was a roller coaster of emotions. Tears because he was such a kind heart and will be missed greatly. Happy because he lived an amazing 107 years on earth. It was more like a celebration of his well spent…

WordSearchSeries#14: Subjugate + Sibling Rivalry.

Hump day it is….and for #WordSearchSeries, i found #Subjugate. In my Pulse for June post, I mentioned that I’ll like to start reading paper back books. Honestly, the only time I pick up a book without thinking so much about ‘if I’ll have the time to read’ is when I have to go on a trip. Whether…

How to handle overbearing superiors.

We know them. We have them as colleagues . And sometimes, we have no choice but to put up with them. As much as we should be around people with positive vibes only, there will be those other people who do not get the memo.  They have no idea about how to manage expectations and…
