All i want for Christmas is...


  • A trip from England to Nigeria. I've established that I can do Canada to England... all I need is the second half of the trip... (England to Nigeria)... my guardian angel are you listening?

... I know that you will not deny me isi ewu and point and kill fish and clubbing at Coliseum and um amala and vegetable soup and sunny weather and ugba and ofe owerri and and... well you know that I can only get the best of these things in Nigeria... sha try and make this happen ehn... I'll be nicer to my ex-boyfriends I promise... hehe...

  • This stupendously hideous but fantastic spirogyra- green leather bag I saw at diesel yesterday... I ended up getting the oddest sweater, jacket and beanie there... (and have promptly reduced my previous to-buy list by three dresses... lol).


Oddly enough, they don't have the green one on the website... but this is the shape of the bag... I'd carry it everywhere... even to sleep... its so soft...

  • An IPOD... I've finally succumbed to mindless consumption... lol... and the constant 'having-to-buy-a-new-one-every-other-week-cos-the-new-one-has-one-new-feature-I-simply-cant-live-without...




  • This French Connection Dress



  • New silver male watch.... actually I'll take whatever I get provided its sexy, VERY masculine and almost falling off my wrist...

  • To see Timaya in concert...

  • THIS!!!




  • Brandy, Beyonce and Britneys albums...

  • A feather(y) belt...

  • For my best friend to stop laughing about my trip-to-Nigeria ambitions... she thinks I'll stay in this country with her... SHES WRONG!!! my guardian angel NEVER dissapoints... lol... (because if shes not careful I wont bring her back any Nigerian movies and gala!!!)

Note to My Guardian Angel... please work on the list from top to bottom oh cos me I sha don't want the american apparel bathing suit and no trip oh... (not so sound ungrateful or anything... abi we're just discussin...). You will like my new year resolutions if you just arrange all these things for me ehn... I won't be as rude to strange old men who think they have a chance in Naija cos they drive red hummer jeeps... I'll not laugh (directly)in the face of the dudes who think I'm 'the one' after one lunch... I won't snicker everytime I see anybody dancing 'swo' to Movado... the way I will change... you self... you will be very suprised...

*theres a car I'm eyeing for my birthday in 2 months... but I won't talk about it now... especially while we're still negotiating the other stuff*

...as a bonus... I will try and donate blood self next year...

I love you angel... talk your own abeg... and the sooner the response the better... abi you know yetunde is getting married this christmas so i have to be there before that time.

Remain blessed... and don't forget to bless me too ehn angel...

ur first client... ONB

Where I'm at...

This is the time of my life that many many others will probably be compared to... Some will fall short.... hopefully a great many will surpass it.

There have been times of extreme joy and exhilaration... times of tears and sudden weightloss(the latter I have no cause to complain about... cos... well... there is that beachparty in december...)

Someone is permanently in love with me... sometimes it fills me with fear... and sometimes I almost clap my hands like a child...
It's beautiful and its ugly... and its great and its terrible... and fun and confusing... and... well I like it.

I recently bought 5 of the most gorgeous and comfortable bras (and matching underwear) from Maidenform on a recent trip to Detroit...
you know the kind that just make you feel like an undiscovered BOND girl...

In the meantime... I have decided that I own way too many clothes... I spend too much on too many things...


The only item of clothing of which I have an accurate count and minimal amount are blazers...

I own 2... (that I wear)

A sexy structured black one from Mexx... and the Marciano linen one...


Everything else is out of control: bags of unworn dresses, boxes of once-worn dresses, innumerable skirts and shorts, rows and rows of still-tagged shirts, shoes surpassing the 200 mark...


I HAVE A PROBLEM!!!


I never remember what clothes i own(other than the favorites)... and have on 2 seperate occasions, bought things I already had in my closet.


I go through phases... like a yellow phase... a black and grey phase, a cardi, mini-dress and tights phase... a beanie with every outfit phase, a boyfriend jean, tight shirt and heels phase... and usually abandon the clothes once I'm done...


I don't sleep at night if I don't buy anything I like... so of I, of course, NEVER window-shop.
(Even as I write this... I am still dreaming about a gorgeous samurai-ish jacket at French Connection that I didn't buy cos my eventual Banana Republic trench purchase was a more winter-friendly option...)


So... I've decided to self-medicate...

Until I have worn EVERY single thing in my closet... or given it to somebody else... I will not buy anything but the following 10 items (no matter how hard!):
1. 4 new summer sandals (Nigeria might be happening after all this Christmas... )
2. THAT French Connection Jacket
3. 5 more Maidenform bras...
4. These Rock and Republic jeans from longlegs(they carry jeans in a 36-38 inseam... which works out perfectly for me... the store is recently discovered... and I've bought 3 pairs in the past 2 weeks... you'd understand if you saw my figure in 'em... hehe)
5. A new tennis bracelet... I lost mine at this years gay parade
6. 12 new dresses, 2 kneelenght pencil skirts, a huge black hobo bag, 3 new heels, black onepiece, 4 plain white v-neck shirts, green winterscarf and gold hoops (this is all technically 1 item... lol)
7. A dark-chocolate coloured leather jacket (the best friend says I shouldn't get a cropped one)
8. Red nail polish
9. Dark dark glasses that cover half my face... broke my last ones in England... they were monstrously divine... and relatively inexpensive... oh to be so lucky again...
10. A new digital camera

oh and everytime I deviate... I'll have to rem0ve one thing from the list... I WILL BE DISCIPLINED!!!

Endnote: Online Shopping is the DEVIL!!! I wasted a couple hundred buying jeans that didnt fit... would be too much hassle to return(international shipping blah... hassle and time wasted blah blah... )... so... someones luck.

Music Recommendation: Justin Nozuka's "After Tonight", Soko's "I'll kill her", Ingrid Michaelson's "The way I am", Moloko's "Sing it back", Regina Spektor's "Samson", Bjork and Paul Oakenfolds "Hypnotise", George Nozuka's "With You"(featuring Jdiggz), Seal's "A change is gonna come", Amel Larrieux "Infinite Possibilities", Beyonce's "Halo", Sharon Jones and the dap kings "How do I let a good man down" Nelly Furtado and Keith Urbans "In God's hands", Priscilla Ahns "I have a dream".

Drinking: tons of berry blast smoothies... which is basically a pomengranate, cranberry, banana, blueberry and strawberry blend... HEAVEN in a cup!!!

Wearing: This superfantastic Fruits and passion spray 'Georgia Peach'... it smells so edible... I like live in it...

Reading: his thoughts... lol... Well that and 'The Great Gatsby'... for school

Need: to learn how to wake makeup... I'm talking shadow, eye-liner, blush... the works... I'm a girl dammit!!!

Speaking of girls... I've come to realize that I'm a bit of a lesbian magnet... I've been approached from Canada to Nigeria to London to America... even in the company of very gorgeous girls...
My interpretation: nobody can resist my 'intelligence'... Man, woman, animal or child... lol...

The LAST ENDNOTE: I will be a better blogger and a better love( ) and and a better friend

Be back soon... God is love
