Image
Morning all,
I am sitting here while i watch the weather trying to decide if it wants to be really sunny or cool.

Grief is a funny thing...

Grief is a funny thing. And when someone you know dies, the grief comes and goes.
The night my grandmum ('mama') passed on, I began to organise my wardrobe. I went to bed like 2am with a very organised life. Like if I stopped folding I would cry.
I couldn't write about them (my grandmums) for so long because writing would mean they were really gone.
Some days some thing happens and I think of them. Like how mama gave me snacks and grandma's hair.
Last year in December, my colleague passed and I remember I cried. But then I foolishly thought I was fine.
Then I was speaking about something yesterday and just started crying.
Because he wasn't just a colleague. Other than my immediate boss and the owner, he was my first contact at top. He actually taught me how to use the system at work. He was a superstar. 
And then he just died sha. And like that Ruby song, sun no stop to shine, rain no stop to fall, grass no stop growing...
Life sha kept going on.
So I cried, fo…

#ManCrushMonday Could Timi Dakolo ever make Fuji music?

Image
Could he? Would he?
Find out below
TOSYN BUCKNOR: "Hi Timi! I am excited that you are our Man Crush this week! I also like the new song, 'Medicine' a lot. I bet you listen to a lot of different genres but which genre would people be surprised you listen to?
TIMI DAKOLO: I think people might be surprised that i listen to fuji music!
(Are you surprised?)
TB: Your kids are beautiful and i love how you and Busola (his wife) spend time with them. Tell me, is raising a girl different from raising a boy?
TIMI DAKOLO: Yes i think so. I think with the male child, you have to be extra firm to teach him the responsibility that comes with being a male child.
TB: You always seem to be so happy and playful but have you ever dealt with depression?
TD: I have never been depressed; i am just a happy child!
And so he is!
His song, 'Medicine' is out now!



#MondayMotivation That conversation with Lamide Akintobi about purpose

Image
This weekend i was blessed to spend time with my favourite ladies! I think i am so blessed to have friends who work in the same industry as i do but are not just colleagues or acquaintances but actually friends. Apart from personal stuff, we can also help one another get through professional hiccups.
So i love it.


While kicking back and doing as we usually do- talking about everything, i randomly mentioned a tweet i had seen about two weeks ago that has left me a bit destabilised.

Someone on twitter had mentioned something along the lines of as the world gets more technologically advanced, a lot of jobs will be done by robots or will become redundant and so when human beings no longer have to work or no longer have jobs, how would we function?
I mean think about it. From birth to death, we seem to be conditioned to wake up (in the morning), go to school or work, close, have an hour of two of leisure, eat (healthy) during the day and then get home to sleep (at night).

It's like we…

5 fun things I learnt about coffee..

As you reach for your cup of coffee this morning, i would love for you to think about the fact that it is National Coffee Week!
Yay!
Now coffee gets a lot of bad press and i myself ignored it for most of my life, preferring to go for my caffeine fix elsewhere. I have however become quite the quiet addict to it. I stumbled on some interesting things about coffee recently so check out the Top 5ve!
5. Coffee is good for your liver! 2 or 3 cups a day are great, especially if you also like your alcohol as they appear to lower the risk of liver cirrhosis. Having said that, coffee can't sober you up sadly... 4. Coffee did Bach so much 'strong tin' that he had to write an opera about it. This opera was performed in the 1700s. O-kay 3. So our forefathers had this genius idea of mixing coffee beans with animal fat. Why? It gave them energy! 2. Personality tests claim people who drink cappuccinos are perfectionists (i drink cappucino) and people who drink their coffee black are quie…

#TVBuzz 'Our Best Friend's Wedding is feel good tv... and i love it!

Image
Last night i could not sleep so instead of watching television like i normally do, i decided to follow the link to 'Our Best Friend's Wedding' which airs on Red Tv online.


A guy, Charles, fears that his mother has cancer and because all she wants from him is a grandchild, he decides he needs to get married. He then calls on his two female best friends (played by Oreka Godis and Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi) to help him find the one.

I went for the premiere of the new series and watched the first two episodes but i stopped watching. Not because it was a bad series, but because i wanted to binge watch it instead. That wait a week thing would not have been great for my heart jare.



So i finally got to watch the full season and i really like the show. Caveat- most of the people involved with this series are my friends. Gbemi? Friend. Oreka? Friend. Illrymz? Friend. Tula? Friend. Lydia? Friend. B... You see where i am going with this right?
See, when you watch or listen to something y…

#StyleTo Life is a beach... Style It!

Image
Heyyyy! How is it going with you this lovely Wednesday afternoon? I am just here, chilling with Wendy Williams and eating a doughnut. Or five. (Word i'm going to get fat!) Lol.
So today i wanted to look at beach style. I don't mind going to the beach. Infact, i think it is one of the best ways of healing your mind, catching up with friends and a book and just being serene. And i am all about my serenity! Yes please!

I think the beach is one of the easiest things to style for. Unless you are off for a video or photoshoot, fun fun and sand are key words and what's best for that? My favourite thing to rock... SHORTS! So grab your shorts or short skirt and remember to work with cotton and other light fabric because sand WILL get everywhere and wear you out! Now they say black people don't swim but for the longest time i have known my friends and family to love the beach and safe waves. Emphasis on safe. No i will not be randomly surfing (even if it is on my bucket list), …
