You know what I really hate? Titles. I read somewhere that people give titles or descriptions to things they can't understand so that they may feel comfortable with the thought or existence of such things. And I guess it's okay to perpetuate the fear of the unknown by mistakenly calling something it isn't or rather doesn't want … Continue reading Hey, I am not my hair!
‘We are gathered here to celebrate the life of a beloved young lady, one who could have made a beautiful bride and a befitting wife to her future husband. May the odds ever be in her favour especially at the gates of promotion and salary increase.’ Oh, snap, who died now? It’s a weird funeral … Continue reading How not to get married in your twenties
There are about one thousand things I don't like about my body. No actually things I hate! I was battling with carrying some idea of kindness in my words.

My aunt stayed … Continue reading My problem with cultural appropriation – it’s not what you think!
I took a class in my first year of college which spoke in detail about positioning for companies and brands.

I will begin by alluding the obvious. Tall, dark and handsome never goes out of style. I mean it's just the right motivation you need to hold him tighter and squeeze his hand longer, yea? We will compromise on very many things, this is not one of those. Back track to my Mills and Boon … Continue reading Romance as I imagine it…
