Good Times


Thanks so much to everyone who gave me hair tips in my previous post. I've gone out and bought awon coconut oil, castor oil etc and I'm on that co-washing tip so hopefully all my hair won't have fallen out by the end of my one month experiment (fingers crossed that I even make it to one month and not give in to the siren song of a luscious weave.)

Friday night in Glasgow and I was ready to paint the town some sort of colour. The night started with a bang though (literally) when the taxi we were in was involved in a fender bender. My normal defence mechanism when scary shit happens to me is to shut down and go into zombie mode but when the car hit us from behind and we careened into the car in front of us I actually burst out laughing....like proper ha-ha's. 

So weird.

Took this photo just after the accident, we ditched our driver and decided to walk. As you can see I'm in supremely awesome spirits, no idea why

Primark bandeau top
ASOS sequin pencil skirt
ASOS neon laser cut clutch
Topshop art deco hoop earrings




My cousins were in similarly good humour, we just found the accident so hilarious. Ndi Arondizuogu laugh in the face of danger.




We went to an East African bar/restaurant called Calabash which Nigerians, as we are wont to do, had colonized and made their own. Weirdly Glasgow is chock full of East Africans, I say weird because the black population in Aberdeen is so predominantly Nigerian that I'm used to assuming every black person I see in Scotland is Nigerian. There however, every single person looked like Wyre and members of the East African Bashment Crew.

I had the BEST time at the bar. By the time we got there most of the clientele were pretty pissed and some man was having a heated argument where he kept calling Oliver De Coque a miscreant and saying King Sunny Ade was a bloody left winger. Lord knows why I found this so funny but I laughed till I had tears in my eyes, my cousins and I kept calling ourselves miscreants the entire weekend. It was that funny.

From the bar we went to a club called Carbon which I had been to the last time I was in Glasgow. I've noticed that hearing Nigerian music in clubs is no longer a novelty, I'm not sure if they're quite mainstream yet but anytime I go out the possibility is high that I'm going to hear Nigerian music and its not even in strictly black clubs, all over the place. The shock from hearing Flavour in an Australian bar in Paris is yet to wear off even. The playlist always rotates between D'banj, P square, Wizkid, Flavour and recently Davido though.......like all the time, just this 5.

Pretty cool.





The afternoon before I left we went out to lunch. I am desperately trying to put on some weight, I've never dieted in my life but I've lost some weight recently and its really worrying because my lifes mission is to acquire a healthy set of child bearing hips and hopefully a bottom worthy of Kimmy cakes. Losing weight is just not acceptable. I don't weigh myself so I have no idea how many lbs I've lost but I noticed I could notch my belt a little tighter this weekend and I'm very displeased. Hence I've been eating like a pig, no dice yet.

So yeah if you know any specific foods I could eat that would go straight to my hips, pleeaase let me know.


Topshop biker jacket
Random tee
Topshop supersoft 'Leigh' jeans
Tory Burch ballet flats





I just figured out how to work the filters on Picasa, so excited by this discovery, being playing with it all day.




Saw this statue of a couple at Buchanan Bus station and I LOVED it, the expression on the guys face is soooo...I don't even know, something just twanged  inside me when I saw it. Apparently the relics of St. Valentine are said to be in the Blessed John Duns Scotus church in the Gorbals area of Glasgow so the city is trying to use that tenuous link to hold a Festival of Love every Valentines Day. There's even a "love trail" made up of several artwork and sculpture all around the city depicting scenes of love, this statue is one of them.

Pretty cool.




I had the bestest time, my cousins are awesome hosts and I miss them already :(

On a brighter note, WATCH THE THRONE TOMORROW!!!!! From the reports I've been hearing from people who did WTT on Friday and Saturday, it was mental, I'm looking forward to losing my voice on Tuesday.

Love and light xx
