Oyinbo folks are crazy!

I met this oyinbo lady today and she complimented on my make up, I told her I wasn’t wearing any, she kept staring at me and practically poked me in the face as she pointed to my brows. I casually told her it was permanent and she freaked “As in…they tattooed your forehead?” I nodded yes and she frowned “you let them poke needles on your face? I started to walk away but she grabbed me and yelled in the other direction for her friend “ Jean…come here, you gotta see this shit, this girl has a tattoo…. on her forehead!” I yanked myself free from her grip and walked to my car. I could not think of one smart thing to say to her dumb ass. Okay maybe permanent cosmetics are a bit extreme but hell so is fake breasts (which I am getting by the way)! Mehn to each his own o!


I personally decided to have my brows done because I was sick and tired of drawing them in every damn day and God forbid you sweat, one of the drawings will just vamoose and you will be looking like someone gave you a damn head butt!

Bomi weds Reggi

The wedding I attended this weekend was very nice, well orgarnized, and very tasteful. Omolayo was the little bride and I tell you the highlight for me was when she walked down the isle...she looked ama-fucking-mazing! I was so proud!!
I found myself choking when Bomi and her man exchanged their vows..it was beautiful!
I did not have a camera but Kiwi sent me a few pictures. Oh yeah, big ups to Tomi in the color choice for the Aso ebi...every single one of the 30+ folks wearing it looked amazing! The food was on point! The DJ...fantabulous! It started on time, the entire event was bananas!!
I wish these lovebirds a blissful married life!! AMEN

Ok…this has gone way too far!

I have noticed dog poop on my driveway a couple times now and I have carefully avoided it and kept my swearing at under breath level but I am so livid right now I will curse sombory out in my egba dialect! I mean WTF? As if my daily frustrations are not enough for me to deal with, I now need to add dog crap to the lengthy list!
I woke up early Saturday morning to take Oyin to work, I was planning on coming back home and catching a couple hours more sleep. As I opened my car door I noticed a smeared pile of dog shit! Smeared meaning that somebody had stepped in it! I look down at my feet and it totally explained the foul smell on my 30-minute journey. I had stepped in a pile of shit! What bothers me is the fact that it was inches away from the grass! And it was in the same exact spot it had been the other three times I had seen it! Only at those times I was careful not to step in it.
Fortunately I saw a lady walking her dog and I asked if she had seen the culprit (she was definitely a suspect)
“I don’t mean to rat but look over there at the first house on that street there is an older gentleman with a small white dog, that is the person you are looking for but don’t say I told you” I thanked her for the info and I marched to dudes door. To my annoyance he did not open the door. I needed to vent (note to self: take anger management classes). I went home and composed this friendly note;

‘Dear Neighbor,
I have been advised that your dog prefers my driveway for his toilet. I am offended that you do not feel obligated to pick up after him; I am even more offended that this is becoming a daily routine. I understand that you must walk you dog but I would appreciate it if you re-route your walks so as to exclude my assigned space and if it absolutely must then I suggest you pick up his droppings behind him. If this continues I will be forced to bring my 5-year-old daughter, who is my pet, to crap at your front door.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
Your friendly neighbor from 4613,
Bola’

I saw the old fart earlier this morning and he glared at me, I smiled in return, I doubt he or his ill mannered stray with be walking in my path in the near future!

Mission possible

I have this headache that has taken permanent residence in my skull...I reject it in Jesus name, what is going on? I slept till like 12noon today! as in it felt pretty fabulous! Except for the nightmare I had which woke me up. At least I was eating eba at my gurl Mo's house in my sleep..I too like food. I am up now and I am about to go make efo because I just read about efo and amala on my girl's blog and now I must have it!
A big shout out to Yetti...thanks for taking the time...I know ya ass is exhausted, we were up till 2:30 and you got up at 7am! It meant more than you ever know.

It's Official

I finally registered my Princess O for school today! The first day of school is Sept 1st. I walked the hallways and inspected her class, the cafeteria, and was told of the different before and after school programs available. I can't believe it! My baby is a Kindergartner!
I am praying this academic year with the help of this school I can channel her brilliant mind towards academics and not the lyrics of Cierra's latest single. I just give God all the glory, it hasn’t been easy but looks like we've made it!!!

Random Banter

Some sleeping dogs are better left lying…or (like someone told me recently) let the damn dog die!
You search so hard and fervently for a truth you can’t handle? Why is that? You compromise your integrity for something you cannot change. I quote my modified version of the serenity prayer but I don’t practice what I preach.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot
change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to
know it's me"
I felt like the biggest fool today because I got past disgust and anger and disappointment and reality set in, there were series of woulda coulda, shoulda and other oulda relatives running through my head. I caught myself playing the victim again, “why me?” but then again …why not me?
I reminded myself of this rather cliché fact EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. There are no exceptions to the rule, it doesn’t go ‘Everything Bola wants happens for a reason’ or ‘Everything Bola needs happens for reason’ but EVERYTHING…the good, the bad, and the despicable.
So I stopped beating myself up and I stopped thinking about what I could have done differently and I accepted what has been and I will focus on what will be.
Pain and treachery are two things I don’t handle very well, but then again who does? I react quickly and get overly emotional, when in essence I should give it a day or two to settle and in the aftermath, thoughts are clearer and actions are less consequential.
I am sure anyone reading this is baffled as to what the hell has my panties in a bunch now! My response…absolutely nothing…I have accepted what I can’t change! I have also learnt that:
· No matter how hard you try, you cannot control another person’s action.
· Do not expect people to behave the same way you would or did
· No matter who you trust, someone will always disappoint you
· There really IS a thin line between love and hate
· Only YOU determine how people treat you
· Memories are just that…they don’t hold water
· Common sense is very scarce
· Words are like eggs, once broken, you can’t put it back together
· When something seems way to good to be true…it definitely is.
· Wait till someone gets mad at you…. they reveal their true feelings.

OH HELL NAW!!!

I read something on my girlfriend's blog that got me thinking…. 'what the hell was this bitch thinking?' This is a question I often ask out loud without realizing I may have offended someone.
My friends enjoy my company when we go out because I am the one who usually analyzes other’s wardrobe. I have the bad habit of staring, which I am working on, but I am so candid I can't help myself.
I mean some heifer just look as though they dress in the damn dark! I often have a desire to school them on the ABCs of fashion. Don’t get it twisted, I am not perfect and have made some fashion blunders in my time but the folks I speak of are repeat offenders.
I mean come on! It’s not that hard! Coordinate boo, damn, pick up a copy of Honey quick before someone sees your ass!
Ok so my problem is this, women feel the need to dress with the times, just because buddie shorts are in this season does not mean they were meant for your flat ass!
One thing I never do though is cut on my friends, it wont even get to that cause we are not leaving the house until your shit is like that. Some heifers let their friends go out looking jacked so in relation they look good…wrong boo! If your girl looks jacked, she devalues your ass too so why not ensure you all look fabulous? So remember ‘friends don’t let friends look jacked’
Here is the secret, you do not need to spend major bucks to look fabulous, discount shopping baby…get with the program.
You will be amazed what ROSS, Marshalls and TJ max can do for your ass and your wallet. If you’ve a little more leverage add Loehmanns and Off fifth to that list.


Here are the rules.
1. Do not shop from one store. Just because you find a look that works at Express does not mean you limit your baffs to Express. A little from everywhere works way better.
2. Absolutely no knock offs! If you cant afford the authentic Gucci bag then don’t buy the NY version…it looks tacky and you aint fooling a damn soul because folks who wear Gucci and Prada are usually complimenting it with clothes of the same standard.
3. Just because something is from a popular designer does not make it hot! Repeat that to yourself the next time you try to by that ill-fitting top just cause it’s from Versace.
4. If you absolutely must shop at Rainbow or Rave, do it in moderation…refer to rule #1.
5. Just because you are wearing a red top does not mean you need to wear the same shade red shoes, red belt, red jewelry and carry a red purse! Again…COORDINATE!!!
6. Tight is not necessarily sexy…don’t mess around and infect yourself with a yeast infection for the sake of divadom, especially if you have cottage cheese on your ass or thighs…that shit aint cute.
7. Please put all your wool and tweed shit away…it is 95 degrees outside!



I have many more tips but for now, I will carry a camera, take and post pictures on
what’s hot and what’s not

If you love me and find me breaking one of my own rule please feel free to let me know..you can be rest assured, I’ll do the same.

MD was bananas this weekend!

I drove down to MD with Princess O and Dare, I figured we’d spend 4th of July with my MD folks. The original plan was to go to Philly but due to the storm in Philly we scraped that idea. I dropped PO off with her Aunty and I did me the rest of the weekend.
On Friday, I did one of those spontaneous type shit I’d rather not share (hehehehe).... I will summarize it with two words…LIKE WHOA!!!
On Saturday I hooked up with my girls and we crashed some birthday party this dude was throwing for his wife. It was really nice, I saw a bunch of old faces and the food was of the chain. We were pretty much done for the night. We went back to Mo’s crib and crashed cus , we had to wake up early for church.
We went to Jesus house and the sermon was like that, they had a guest speaker who I was feeling, he touched on the importance of having faith in yourself despite how other see you and how God can use just about anyone; rich, poor, ugly or fat and how we are all meant to be someone and its starts when you believe. We mingled a bit after service the we headed to my favorite restaurant “lex” on Connecticut, ID, Mini and Shola joined us as well as my boy Niyi. We had a fabulous time. We rushed home because I promised Mo’s mumsy some moi moi, its my newest favorite meal now so I am wearing it out. My girl Lola came by because we were all planning to be in B’more for this pool party thingy. I saw my girls from way back and my newly-wed friend Seyi who has been on her honeymoon for months now. We watched as bikini’s were flaunted and everyone had a fabulous time. The highlight of my evening was finally meeting my cyber-pal Yetti, she looks every bit as fabulous in person as appears on WWW. We ate suya, sipped bubbly and danced the night away. Thanks to Moji and her Cyber-shot, I have pictures!!!!
