Hello guys, what’s up? Let me be first to say happy new month to you! (So here it goes, Happy New Month). August will bring you blessings, love and everything you wish for. As usual, I’ll be sharing my favorite things from July and basically, a rundown of what I did.
TV Shows and Movies
Last month, I slacked back on my TV and movies collection for sleep. Yes, normally I watch them after work and dinner (say sometime after 10) but now, its sleep time for me. I sleep early and low-key, it’s perfect for me. I however hope to continue this month. However, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy and a host of other movies. I tried watching Mad Men but somehow, I couldn’t get past the first episode (maybe because it’s ‘old school’). I followed up with Ndani TV and the new series on their bouquet. Totally love the Skinny Girl in Transit bit (I love the fact that Ngozi Nwosu is on it) and Real Talk (with Cornelia). There’s also Kids Say the Darndest Thing Nigeria and I think it’s amazingly funny. These kids are hilarious and sure gave me a good reason to laugh this month.
Blogs, Tumblr and Instagram
As I said last month, I like to read and cyber stalk people (I always mean this in a good way). I read random articles on the internet and I really think editors should try to do their work properly. I read this op-ed piece on a site that was badly written but if you take the patience to understand what the writer meant, he did make sense. That’s the point where the editors come in. Anyway for now, I find myself stalking the people at The Style HQ. The interface is amazing and the articles are great so far! My favorite Tumblr is egosticalgold I believe, he’s really very comfortable playing with flowers and his body and I’m there for all the other things he has wrapped. I like Keside Anosike’s Instagram because he’s amazing and I think you should check it out.
Music and Music Videos
I have a lot of new tracks I’m feeling this month (well, for some rediscovering). Let’s start with ‘Benediction’ by August Alsina and Rick Ross. Then there’s G.R.L with ‘Ugly Heart’ and Fetty Wap with ‘Trap Queen’. Of course everyone knows ‘Bobo’ by Olamide still has my mumu button and there’s now ‘My Woman My Everything (which I didn’t like two weeks ago) and ‘Jangilova’ by Seyi Shay.
(AND, MY MUSIC LIST IS INEXHAUSTIBLE). There’s ‘Pose’ by Yemi Alade too and then ‘Lean On’ by Major Lazer and DJ Snake. In addition, there’s ‘Gweta’ by Toofan, ‘Cheerleader’ by Omi and yes, do we go on?
Places and Events
I went to the Lekki Leisure Lake last Sunday and I think it was fun. Although it’s quite sandy, the fresh breeze and the music from the DJ (dunno if he’s the resident DJ) was worth it. There’s also Terra Kulture, where I saw an adaptation of Wole Soyinka’s ‘Mad Men and Specialists’ book and then crashed an art exhibition and had dun dun at the restaurant where I took this lovely picture of the salt and pepper shaker.
I was at the One Voice Peace concert and loved the concept. I even loved the fact that I was entertained to life music. Also, still keeping up with places and events, I was home for a good part, and entertained myself by engaging in an art competition with the sister. (We know who won!)
Praise Jah people, I finished a book ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’ this month. With my regular sleeping and how I ignored TV and movies, you would think I won’t have time for books. I sorted my iPad and yes, I’m back to reading. I also read a series of Nigerian literature a friend gave me and I read short stories from Akachi Adimora Ezeigbo, who I think is absolutely brilliant. I’m trying to alternate like two books at once (let’s hope that goes well)
In conclusion, August will be better hopefully. Also if you read here, I contribute to a lifestyle and fashion website (Read here) Meanwhile, if you think there’s anything I should check out (movies, books, music, places, websites etc.) please leave a comment, I’m open to suggestions and would appreciate them!
I still have to tell you guys about my online shopping experience(s) and how I’m longing for an iPhone and how I have no one to send all my amazing selfies to and how my glasses have photographic view. Maybe next week okay?
Have an amazing month guys!!
