Life Lately: Taking Stock 4



Hello my Loves! I've missed you so much. I stopped Taking Stock/Diary on a daily basis because,I had a slight anxiety that perhaps I might be giving out too much info and might be crossing the privacy/blogger line. And, majorly because I felt that who in the World will come here everyday to read how you spent your day?
Well, I was wrong, at least that's what my stats on those previous posts state. Thank you for your support even if most of you prefer to come and see what's new here, read, and go without commenting. Just so you know, we have since passed the 25,000 views(and counting) benchmark, and iBlogWithGrace has over 47,000 and counting. All organic views, ha! We are growing y'all. Indeed, God is great!
Special Shout to one you I met the other day, Chimamaka.

Feeling: Like a Million bucks! Today's Word was lit!

Changing: Some things here on the blog.

Went to: The Throne Room today.

Still Marvelling: At how God put me at a strategic place to receive his go ahead, and how he saved my bu** from a hot big pot of Zobo.

Wanting to: Make a difference in the World.

Thinking of: Volunteering for humanitarian causes dear to my heart.

Wishing: The Attendance at Tomorrow's CDS will be hassle free.

Currently Reading: The Blessing of the LORD by Kenneth Copeland.

Needing: An affordable photographer that knows their onions well.

Just Finished: Making Zobo for the week. You can place an order for yours by calling 08156331088.

Cut down on: My long strolls on Instagram. I use that time for other things(like sleeping/lounging) now.

Just Ate: Some Lettuce.

Still: Loosing weight! -12 KG and counting, my God is faithful. If you know someone that's still struggling to loose weight tell them to email me.

Learnt to: Appreciate weekends more, since I started working in this town. Last week, I was literally dragged out of my house for a party,reunion I thank God I went for. Guys,if you read this, we need to hang out again.

Wanting: to get to Lagos, and literally stab the new tailor I was introduced to in the eye with a fork. Dude has held my material and money hostage for one month and some days now. He promised 2 weeks! If only I listened to my guts and stuck to my tailor. You will understand my predicament if you have ever encountered a Nigerian no-show Tailor.

Happy: I discovered Castor Oil is not good for my hair. I'll tell you all about it in my next post,and tips for your relaxed hair. So, you better subscribe below in order not to miss out.

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?


Today’s post is not a fashion post per se, it’s more of a lifestyle post. If you follow me on Instagram here (please go and do so now), you may/may not have seen my most recent post; where I gave you babes a heads up on today’s post. Please turn on post notification at the top right corner of my page so that you never miss another post from me, the new algorithm is a mess but there’s hope.

1.Call them: Try to reach out to them. 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. TIP: You can write out a list of things you’d li…

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day: Seek 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 Instagramyou 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 discussed it with a trusted family m…

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.

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 you have …
