How I Spent My Holiday – LAGOS

Chuckles at the title of this blog post. Who remembers when we used to write those “How I Spent My Holiday” essays in primary/secondary school? The lies yo! “My daddy took our entire family to disneyland”, yea, if there was a Disneyland in Makurdi then sure! smh


What a city!

Sucks you in, seduces you, makes you fall in love with it, then completely exasperates you and when you think you’ve gotten to the point where you’re definitely done, she sucks you right back in with her seductively enticing energy! It’s no secret I have a love-hate relationship with Lagos…. This holiday though, it was mostly love. Alot of loving. I’m afraid i’m loving Lagos a little more than is healthy and that worries me.images

What did I do? Plenty!

If you follow any of my social media pages then you already have a good idea, so consider this post a wrap up of my amazing holiday and the amazing time I’ve these last couple of weeks.

1. I took pictures. Alot. Of myself, of food, of things. Vanity is my biggest sin.


2. I ATE! Alot. I also drank my weight in cocktails.

 3. Indulged & satisfied all my sweet tooth cravings.

**Notice how I categorized my deserts separately from the food? Reason: Food is for the stomach; desert isn’t. Desert doesn’t go to the stomach, it goes to the heart**

4. Had a lovely Christmas. Got gifted this beautiful mug. I love it.


5. Met someone.

6. Went to the beach.

6.  Caught a nasty flu/chesty cough bug. Still dealing with it. Lots of un-sexy coughing, not cute at all.

7. Went to see Wakaa The Musical. Loved it.

8.  Fasted into the New Year and spent crossover night in Church. Prayed like I’ve never prayed before – with spiritual anger. I’ve set my year in motion for good, 2016 about to be lit!

9. Went to the beach. Again.


 10.Went on a date.

11. Alot of nothing. That good type of lazy nothingness. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

12. Did not exercise AT ALL. Not even for a day. Je ne regrette rien.

I was NOT!! ha ha

On my last night, I sat at the cafe [Inspiro Galleria] and just chilled…. whispering about nothing & everything with this really sexy guy I just met.

Indeed, I had an amazing holiday.

Back home now [in Benue] eating loads of pounded yam and genger. Next week, I’ll dust the trainers & see about a detox plan.

So you see….. My 2016 is already off to an incredibly great start.

How’s yours going? How was your holiday?

Besos xx

      Oh hiiiiiiiiiiii. Sab…. Oh no with the phone comments, I wonder if it’s a glitch with my site? I’ll have it checked.
      I did have the best time truly, but every time I logged on Instagram & saw your Hong Kong pictures, I got so jealous [hurry up with that post already].
      You know how I feel about you… You’re bae! Happy new year xx

    Hi Seember a.k.a. Minister of Enjoyment

    All I saw is “Met someone” “Sexy guy” “Whispering sweet nothings” 😀

    Ah! You had a nice holiday. To visitors, Lagos is a whirlwind of fun, but to residents, it is a chaotic hurricane. Lasgidi is best enjoyed when consumed with small, dainty bites.

    I wish you happiness and blessings in the New Year!

      Nedoooouuuuxxxxxx!!!! Did I tell you I missed you and kept looking out for your comment? I did! Happy new year gurl
      I completely enjoyed my holiday truly but trust me when I say I can only handle Lagos in little doses, I think you people who live there are super heroes truly.
      Wish you an amazing year too
      Cheers Hun xx

    I love your blog. I don’t comment often and I really should.

    You are the real Enjoyment Minister.

    Congratulations on the date, Hope it goes on into whatever you wish it to be.

    Lagos is great during the holidays – traffic is less.

    You must be one of the few people who can resist taking the cliche picture on Hans & Rene’s 3D wall seat. They have one of the best kept toilets I have seen. Love the sexy beach wear with the lace.

    Wish you a fabulous 2016. May it be your best year yet!
