Visit to Gurara falls

Hi guys,

So yesterday, Saturday 23rd of June 2018 has got to be one of the most fun iv had in a loong time… who would have guessed.

I’m so excited to post about this because it was an afterthought of well deserved escape from work…and was totally worth it.

My fitness family Bodyrox Fitness studio was planning this trip to Gurara Water falls and I was just kinda passive about it. Because Me 😞

The trip was scheduled for Saturday Morning and By friday night i just put a call across to our General/ Minister of Fitness (well deserved title if you ask me) if there was still a slot….and yayyy!!! That was how I got on this trip.

Early Saturday morning, I couldn’t wait to go and play games,and just relax in nature…Yea, and as always…nature happened. It rained throughout the journey..well almost throughout.🀣🀣🀣

The trip from Abuja by bus was scheduled to leave by 10am, we left 11ish and was supposed to be a 1hour 30 minutes trip but we took a detour to the Gurara Dam (not intentional but was fun nonetheless) which is about 30 minutes thereabout from the Waterfall.

We got to the Waterfall at about 4:05pm.

The driver was just not the best driver for a trip…😩

Any who…We got to the water fall which starts at the top part of a walkway. At this point, you can see the Waterfall from a distance..and it was raining like crazy…but there was no going back from here.

Afterwards we went down a long row of stairs.. this part was scary. You feel like any mistake and you’ll slip and go tumbling down the stairs…

So I jejely behaved myself. I didn’t even try to pulling stunt or form any selfie or vide anything while walking lol

But stopped to take these πŸ˜‰

Then we got to the bottom of the stairs…and that was the very fun part…from here we could see the mighty current of the water and the rush… Nature is indeed beautiful.πŸžπŸ–πŸŒ¦πŸŒ©

Then there was this video that I wasn’t a part of.

Then the journey back up the hill started…. I was totally drenched in rain at this time.

Up up up the stairs.

Took an “I made it back to the top” picture.

Oh I had so much funnnnnn… the music on the way home was Surreal.

Even though once I got home, I had to suppress my cold with a very warm bath and two cups of honey lemon and ginger tea.

Thanks to Bodyrox Team and Rox Tours for this wonderful trip….let’s do this again.

Gurara falls, Niger State…Check. βœ”

Male vs Female buttons

Hey lovelies, 

Ever wondered why the buttons on the male shirts were places on the right and that of the ladies were placed on the left… I bet some of you didn’t even know that. 

I have always wondered why… 

During my research too it is said that the same feat applies to zippers (Ie, male on the right,  female on the left)  I’ll take note from now. πŸ˜‹

It’s true that there internet is a wealth of knowledge but… 

This one proved to me that the internet is a round about too… There were theories that just didn’t even add up to me.
After much research (and being forced to watch cat videos and YouTube links 😏) I finally chose the answer that seemed more realistic and reasonable.

Historians say,  in ancient times,  clothing held weaponry, it was easier for men to slip their hands in and pull out their guns hidden in the shirt with the dominant hand without it being caught in.

It also applies to swords,  gentlemen wore their swords on the left so it could be drawn from the right hand. And if a jacket buttoned  was on the right.. It wouldn’t be a smooth sail to get the sword. 
(I don’t believe I’m writing medieval) oh well!
As for the women,  when buttons were invented. The woman wearing the shirt wasn’t necessarily the person buttoning it… Buttoned clothes was for the wealthy.
Wealthy women back then didn’t dress themselves.
That means the maids had to button it… And it’s more convenient for  the buttons to be on the left when someone had to button it.

Understandable enough?  I took this for my answer probably cos I was tired of research. Lol
Men’s shirts have buttons on the right, women’s on the left. 


Youre welcome

All about the B-Day. 8-Feb-2018

Hi guys!!! 

This is one of those very exciting posts.

No need to guess,  I’ll spill it

 Well it’s my Birthday “belated” post….so please allow me gloat πŸ˜‚.

 It should be clear by now how well I love birthdays and how excited I get on the week of my birthday…

Scratch that, I mean the whole of February is an exciting month for me.

So let’s use the excuse of being overly excited that’s why this post is coming late.  Kapish?  Lol
I had a very exciting birthday week… It was all sunshine for me. πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒžπŸŒžπŸŒžπŸŒž.

The whole “Carnival” Started two weeks to my birthday πŸ€—πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ where I had my birthday shoot “haven’t had that in years“.. 

Oh my God, it was the awesomesttttttttt… esttttttttttesttttttttttttttt shoot.. E. V. E. R. (I’ll have a post specifically about my birthday shoot.) relazzzzzzπŸ˜‚

I worked with an amazing team,  My Gosh
From the styling,  hair,  photography,  makeup …everything. 
So about the D-Day. 

Birthday celebration started a bit late.. Talk about “fashionably late” πŸ’…πŸ˜¬. 

I truly have the weirdest grin on my face right now thinking about it. And No,  it wasn’t intentional, but who’s checking? πŸ˜‚

Birthday Girl!!! 
Had the best humans around me,  so much to eat and drink.  love, laughter and hugs and all the simple things in life.

Its amazing to see how many people will show up when you say there’s free food and cake. πŸ˜‚.

(I know a few friends that will kill me after reading this post) 


That’s me being silly.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

I’ll rephrase

  It’s amazing how many people will show up just to show you love on a day like that. It’s humbling. 

Here’s a little video I put together.  And a little bits and pieces from the day.

Wish I could call every name.. But you know your “lovely” selves. 

I am Super Grateful πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™.

Thankful for amazing people.

Well,  Happy Viewing! 

The most beautiful birthday cake πŸŽ‚ … 

Dripping chocolate by my darling Nikky Cake studio.. I didn’t get to eat my cake *sad face*

Inhale the love… Exhale gratitude… 

My face was this way throughout the night. Lol

Cake makes me smile.. Lol

So yeah,  I had all the fun in the world… And I’m even more driven than before. 

So I made a random video…

There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.

It’s Aquarius Season!!!Β 

Like you didn’t know already lol. 
Hello people, 

So it’s not news that this is my favorite time of the year,  and incase you didn’t know that already, then forgive me for not being loud enough,…  now you know.πŸ˜†

It’s officially my Birthday season.. February 8th Yo!

Amazingly, this season comes with mixed feelings,  it’s my ideal happy/sad time (more of happy though) , I tend to take stock of my life,  draw plans,  laugh at my mistakes,  take a step back,  get upset about plans that haven’t been executed, so it’s kinda sober……
…until a day to my birthday,  then I become superpumped, happy, adrenaline filled and unrepentant about cake. πŸ˜‚(I’m a cake junkie) 
I just love birthdays.
So yes, birthdays come with a lot of thoughtful gifts and priceless messages from loved ones, Another tradition at these times is the personal gift. A friend taught me a long time ago, and since then, it has become my thing.

I buy myself a very little fancy gift, I wrap it for myself and open it on that day. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, yes,  I do things like that.  I call it a mini splurge, something I like but have been overthinking to buy.
I’m still torn between what I want to get for myself this year, but whatever it is, I’m sure I’m gonna love it, afterall, Who knows what I like more than me? lol
Anyways, this is just a “subtle” reminder that I’m in my season, so I can get away with anything πŸ˜‚

Saw this in my draft… Wrote this and thought I posted it… Clumsy much?

So please do me a favour and read this post again… Bearing in mind you are reading it on the 24th January πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆπŸ˜ˆ

Birthdays are good for me. Statistics show that the more I have the longer I live.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the new-year!
A year of newness,  new beginnings, fresh starts. 
Hoping and praying that your 2018 outshines your 2017 in all things positive. 
Have an Amazing year ahead. 
Toodles.

Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be.
