What I am Currently Reading: A Book by Helon Habila, "Waiting For An Angel".

Hey Guys! I started reading this book yesterday evening. For a long time, I've been wanting to read it; but, I had to wait for my brother (who owns it) to finish first.  I had to pause halfway because I wanted to "save it", and process it slowly. At the rate I was going, I could have finished it by now.
The book was written by Helon Habila, the winner of the 2001 Caine Prize for African Literature aka The Booker Prize. It has 7 parts (named after the different peoples lives of which the entire story is centered around), and, an Afterword by the Author. Also, it has 228 pages of great-goodness. It captures the lives of seven people under the different Military regimes of the 90s in Nigeria, including the "Abacha regime" (na dem sabi).
It's definitely a good read, and, I highly recommend it for you, your friends/loved ones, (or your children, if you have any).

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…
