Taking Stock: Life Lately 2

I saw this on someone's blog the other day (I can't place my finger on the link in particular),and thought it would make a good read here on lily of Nigeria. And, just maybe, you'll be moved to share yours with me as well.

Went to: the Ecumenical/National Christian Church today after my NYSC CDS,while cruising from Area 10 to the Central Area with my leggedis-Benz. At first, a King’s Guard refused me entry into the main church. As I was leaving, a kind Police man walked me back,and into the church and told me not to mind the man. You call it luck,I call it favour. At first,I was shocked because prior to this experience,I didn’t know there was ever a church where people were denied entrance to speak with God.

Dug deep: into instagram algorithms and why some people get many likes,and others don’t.


Wondered: if the Dwarves from the Lord of the Rings are really dwarves in real life.

Said a Prayer: for Lord Saruman's Widow in real life(Birgit Kr√łncke Lee). I hope she’s faring well,God be with her.

So Badly: want to run a Master’s Programme. But, I guess that’s a bit…anyway God can do anything yeah? I’ll have to wait and see.

Still Marvelling: Over the fact that miracles happen everyday,and God repaired my phone for me. Hian,if you haven’t read what happened,hurry and read all about it here.

Thought of: how cute Thorin and the Lord of the Elves are.

Embracing: Alexandra for whom she is.

Ate: the English veggie sauce I made yesterday with white rice. And,I had some oranges..


Drank: the Zobo drink I made the other day.

That's today's post post guys. How is your day going? Tell me all about it,and if you're okay,we could discuss in the comment section below. See you tomorrow in my next post by God's grace. Don't forget to bookmark this blog,and tell all your friends and family about it :)

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

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?

Nothing brings back memories than hearing your friend’s voice. Distance should never be an issue in friendships that mean that world to you; unless you see this as an opportunity to cut off ties with that person. 2.        Make A Plan To See Them Eye To Eye : You can pick a mutual location you both enjoy, or one you have been longing to visit and meet up there.

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

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
