With Law school finally over, I have returned to the blogosphere. If you follow me on instagram, you will have seem my first post. I thought it would be nice to start with a an intro-post, and not just jump in as if nothing had happened. My other blog here has been placed on Google Adsense(thanks Guys :)

And, contrary to many opinions, I did have a good experience in Law School. During my time away, I experienced so much. Sit back, and enjoy, as this is going to be one heck of a long post, with pictures!

I learnt how to make Ayamashe aka Yoruba Ijebu Designer Stew. My family who are my greatest critics loved it! My aunt who was visiting at the time, took the recipe from Me before she went back to her house! If you have Nigerian relations, you will know this is a big deal! Here's a picture.

I got to meet IK Osakioduwa. Yes! The IK! The Big Brother Africa Host! I couldn't believe it when I was invited!

During my court externship, I did African Rubber Thread hairstyle. Forget fine girl, this thing hurt crazy! It was intense! I had to drink paracetamol for some days.

 My aunt's baby celebrated her first birthday, and, I got to eat Abacha in Lagos(it's a really big deal y'all, it's my all time favourite meal). Here's a picture

 I also tried out my Mother's family alternative to the normal African rubber thread hairstyle.

 This is an after picture. What do you think?

One of those days after court...This girl is one of the sweetest people I know!

My group member's be forming badoo for picture *InsertLaughingWeepingEmoji* (No lecturer in the class though).

 My birthday was on the 9th of August. I just marked it. It would have been foolish to celebrate it when I had my bar final exams in two weeks. I appreciate all your kind wishes. Shoutout to Cakes and Creams Lagos for this amazing cake.

 After our moot trials...
My group had the nicest Judge ever! And, she came in from Ogun state just to hear our matter.

One of my roomate had her birthday while we were about to start our exams, so no party. But, we did take some room pictures. Here's one

However, before you settle in, add me up on SNAPCHAT, I just joined, my username is lilyofnigeria

This was on the last day of lectures. My seatmates and I were excited to be done with law school, but, we definitely were sad we would be parting. I had some good times with these bunch!

One morning during the exams, I was lost reading, and forgot to eat or drink anything. My mother came into my room with a surprise!(by the left). I had to take a picture with my twin cam. for posterity sake. African mothers are full of surprises!

On our last paper, I came in a little bit too early. But, I had the chance of seeing the preparations for our cocktail after the exams. This last cocktail was a far cry from the first one, for me. I had the time of my life in the first one before externship commenced. I give it to the Council, and, Mrs Adebiyi her best! But some people are just barbwire crazy! The cocktail ended up with an unbelievable disaster. I did not even get a pack or a ticket, yet some people had more than two meal and drink tickets, and, the mind to cart away 4-5 packs of the small chops and drinks, under the cover that it was a part of their school fees. I quietly left the place and went back to my hostel; had a shower and ate the indomie I bought from a vendor.

After the exams, I was invited to go the Lagos Business School with a group of my friends. I even put our experience on snapchat(add me up @lilyofnigeria)

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Hello Lovelies, Welcome to today’s post. It rained cats and dogs yesterday so the weather here in Lagos is subtle and cool. What’s the weather like where you live?

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if
