Summer night out look

Hi everyone! Hope your week was great? I didn't go anywhere in this outfit...lool. I just wore this and asked my friend to take pictures for me. I know what is going on in your head "so vain" but I am currently on holiday so it's okay...haha. I have been in my room all week except on monday, when a kind friend randomly invited me for dinner and we watched Fast & Furious afterwards.
Rest in peace Paul Walker. That tribute everyone was talking about at the end of the movie was a real as we were watching I kept thinking, so where is the part everyone was talking about? I didn't even realize when I started sniffing and I was trying all my best to hold back the tears. Interesting movie. It was quite long though.

I have clearly been paying attention to all those fashion bloggers pose :P

As you can see I had so much time on my hands, I changed to the white shorts and took more photos.
Which look do you prefer?
The black or white shorts?
My friend the photographer liked the white one.
Till next time. :)

Thoughts in my head #2: Dear future husband

*kneeling down with hands together*
Dear God,
As I patiently, and sometimes impatiently wait for the future bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. I ask and pray that he would be a man that knows his way around the kitchen. I am not asking for a chef lord, just someone who can whip up something when I am not in the mood to cook, or maybe cook surprise meals because he loves me.
Thank you Jesus.

Ok guys, I am just kidding with that prayer or maybe not. But seriously though, for most part Nike was just trolling. I have been "eyeing" some male cooks/chefs and I have a new crush, thanks to BellaNaija. I follow some of them on Instagram and check the others on BN when there is a new post.

Red Dish Chronicles, Chef Fregz, Chef Alex, and lastly the BN feature I watched today by Tunde.

To end this post, I am sharing this video of Janette's wedding vows "I waited for you", which I think has a connection with her spoken word "I will wait for you" that I also shared on my blog in 2011. I watched this her other wedding videos about 2 months ago and I cried...lool.

Enjoy and Have a blessed week!

Thoughts In my head #1

One of my goals now that I am back to blogging is to share more of my thoughts and get a little personal. Not everyday makeup, fashion and hair talk.
I'm not sure what title to give this... "Nikkisho shares"? I think that sounds somehow. I have decided it would be "Thoughts in my head"..lool. What do you think about the title?

First, let me start by saying Knowledge, really is power and one of the best feelings in the world is being able to recognize a problem in yourself, you know....being able to realize something that is wrong in an aspect of your life. It is so easy, I mean super, duper easy to recognize the fault/flaws in others, but when it comes to ourselves we are blind most of the time. Permit me to add this bible passage we know. Matthew 7:3-4 (NLT)
"And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, 'Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye?"
These problems or should I say bad habits have become a part of us. We do it every time, we live it, and breathe it that it never looks like a bad thing.

Some weird and crazy things have happened in my life for the past few months that has made me realize a lot about myself. I won't be sharing everything on here but two things I have ALWAYS struggled with and didn't realize was, comparison and seeking validation. They are so common among youths my age but at the same time, difficult to notice. (not sure I am making any sense but whatevs)

I over do everything in my life sometimes, and I am not here to say I'm going to get rid of these things permanently. All I really want is to have control and reduce them to a minimum because let's face it, I am human. It is only natural that these things creep in once in a while, but to be able to move on quickly and to be able to stop dwelling on them for a long time that it becomes a constant attitude/behavior is what I am working on.

Realization is key I tell you and I am so glad I have crossed that bridge.
I have been reading/watching videos to improve myself. Here is what I have learned so far and I hope to remind myself every single day.
  1. Be content
  2. Have a focus and purpose
  3. Guard your heart
That's all guys. Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below :-)
