10 Commandements - Frank Ofoezie

And yet, another guest blogger! Also know as The Palmwine Tapper, Frank is a really good friend of mine and trust me, one of the funniest people I know. He started a blog and everyone should please check it out, I'm always laughing uncontrollably at his witty posts. It's definitely my go to when I need some laughter during the day and honestly I could read one post more than once. It's quite lengthy but it really is worth the read! So joining guest bloggers like Onyi & Peace, I really hope you ENJOY Frank's piece as much as I did!

10 Commandments

Wow! Someone pinch me! I am writing on the Charmeleon blogger’s blog! Being on this blog is an honor as it was on my ‘’100-things-to-do-before-I-go-to-meet-my-creator-to-ask-why-He-gave-me-an-armpit-look-instead-of-a-Brad Pit-look’’ list. (Unfair!) It states clearly on my bucket list after No 45: ‘’Kiss Beyonce’’, ‘No 46: Write for the Chameleon blogger’. 1 down, 99 to go!

Before I start I should probably put this caveat out there to ensure we have a good guest-blogger and reader relationship. Take whatever I say on here with a pinch of salt. Life is already difficult enough.  But make sure you read it anyways and go to every of your friends house in the night with a ski mask on and make this their home page on their computer without them knowing. (Nobody does that normally? Neither do i)

Okay that should be enough rambling to settle my nerves, now to the matter at hand.

You are probably thinking, ‘Oh why is the title the 10 commandments, is he going to preach to us?’ Keep Calm, curious Callistus! You shall find out in due time.

Let me tell you a short story first. Just like every story, it was a beautiful sunny day and I was playing football. I was about 12 and had no worries apart from what color appropriate for painting the human drawings for my Fine art project, so I was a free child running around chasing every ball.

Only if I saw it coming!

While I was chasing the ball under the tree, I felt a sting on my neck. I clutched my neck hard and fell to the floor.

*DUMM!* (Manage the low budget sound effect please)

A pregnant lizard had just bitten my neck. (This is the part of the story you think the ‘actor’ is going to die!!)

But No!!!

I managed to get home and the next day surprisingly I was fine. I realized however I could do amazing stuff! I could sneeze so loud in front of a girl and she wouldn’t even flinch, she would just keep doing her thing. I could even do bungee jumping right in front of her nose and she would just be reading her novel casually.

That’s when it hit me!

That lizard bite gave me superpowers.

The Power to be invisible to girls!

I was pleased! I had always wanted to be a Super Hero just like most people want to be  super heroes when they were little, surprisingly I wanted to be Samurai jack because I thought it was cool to fight in a jalabia (translation - bath robe, I think) and bathroom slippers unlike them other super heroes wearing pant on top trousers or ridiculously tight leggings. In fact they had to dub my story and change bits and bobs to make up the popular Spider man story of how he got his powers. (seriously!)

I digress.... now back to my cool tale..

So every super hero has a weak point for example Superman can catch an airplane like a Frisbee but acts like a wimp in the presence of a speck of Kryptonite. My own weak point was and still is the ‘the friend zone’. The power of invisibility disappears once I am in that zone and I become a mere mortal like you reading this post.
So for me to have any sort of relationship (I mean your regular day to day interactions) with a girl I have to be in the friend zone. If I think of leaving that zone and taking anything a step further..

**PIAAAUUWWWWW** (I should probably stop with the sound effects)

I would turn invisible again.

Monochrome Nails

Most fashion blogs I follow have been all about the monochrome trend this season, with the checkered patterns from Louis Vuitton, b/w polka dots in high street shops and the classic stripes from Marc Jacobs and the rest of them (that The Soho Sister has called "prisoner fashion" lol, click the link to read the post). So I decided to be "trendy" and get some monochrome on my nails :)
Partly inspired by my friend Sade's dress. Please visit her blog here called In My Sunday Best, I'm so in love with it.
So, do ya like?
The lines aren't totally perfect but honestly, there's beauty in imperfection.

 Expect a post from the weekend dinner I told you about earlier, but for now I need to keep studying for a test on friday... sigh.


Open Heavens: Wine, Not For Kings

Memory Verse: It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor princes strong drink (Proverbs 31:4)

Read: Proverbs 31:3-4
pro 31:3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.
Pro 31:4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

Non alcoholic wines are okay but should be taken in moderation (Ephesians 5:18). Anything you take in, no matter how good, if taken in excess will definitely cause some kind of trouble, even water.

What is it with your 20s?

I follow a lot of blogs and this week was all about your 20s... I'm going to be 21 in May so of course I found it all interesting and they were definitely a lot of things I could learn from. Just incase you're curious, read them here and here. I believe we can all learn a thing or two even if you aren't in your 20's.
So how's everyone doing? It's friday tomorrow and I'm bitter sweet about it, like I've been for a lot of other things in my life right now. Saw my exam timetable and graduation date this week and it made me even more anxious and scared. Not in that shit-just-got-real kinda way cuz it was real ever since, but in a more exciting way now, I've always hated academic education like I've really never been a school person so I'm just excited to get it over with. The fear is still there but I'm just trying to focus all that energy on all the work I have to do before time runs out, shout out to my optimist still. No more negative thinking, positive energy only! You guys should try it too, apparently it helps... I'm still waiting on some results and I'll get back to you on that!
Picked up another novel after The Spider King's Daughter (read my review on that book here) and now I'm reading The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Adichie and so far I'm loving it. I find that reading novels gets me in the mood to read actual uni stuff so I've been trying to read a lot lately especially as it was on my list of goals for 2013. Funny thing is my dad told me he does that ages ago but I never understood it till now, the apple really doesn't fall too far from the tree. :)
What else is going on... Have a little soiree to attend this weekend so that should be fun for blog content, honestly I'm pretty boring these days but I've made up my mind to do my best, get dolled up and have fun!
Trust me to throw in a few pictures in the post...

This is how my hair looks at the moment, giving it a little rest. Chunky twists and a head scarf, ain't nobody got time for a 'fro right now.

Have a great weekend everyone. x


Video Vixens? #throwbackthursday

Yes, the guy behind me in this picture actually offered us (Mico & I) a chance to be in his music video... Really? Lol He has this rock band, do we really look like we could be in a rock music video? He gave us his album and the tracks were pretty good but we didn't call him back tho. :p

Product Review: Body Shop Skincare

A while ago I went into Body Shop t see if I could get some products to work for my skin cuz whatever I was doing wasn't working. I've always tried to keep it simple with things I do to my skin, hair and everything else. My hair was doing great and enjoying it but for my skin it just wasn't working out. So now, meet my Body Shop holy grail! :)
I really like this product honestly, I never believed in tea tree till this (and the blemish gel). I like that I feel the tingling in my skin when washing (and using the gel), makes me feel the product is really working! I use this every morning and after that I use the next product to moisturize.

Love it! I don't have really oily skin but this helps with my tea zone area which I wear I'm oily the most. It's not too thick and overwhelming, well except you use too much but it's just right for my skin and helps me control oil to an extent. Every time I want to replace mine, it's always sold out in the store! I always have to order online so I'm guessing I'm not the only one loving this product!

Random: Sometimes I do this thing where I buy the product that's almost gone on the shelf especially when I havent tried the brand/product before and they have a wide range of products/flavors e.g. Chips or drinks, yea it's mostly food and it always works!

Spot treatment: Tea Tree Blemish Gel (my personal fave)
No seriously this thing zaps spots over night and it really helped me because I seemed to have tiny pimples on the right side of my face and my forehead. They weren't a lot but this just helped me focus on each one. All I had to do was apply it on the problem areas after washing (with the tea tree wash) at night and the next morning, it's gone! Well not really maybe after two nights lol.

Conclusion: Of all products I'd strongly recommend the blemish gel. You really don't need to buy everything, I just find that the combination of all three has worked wonders for my face (combination skin) and I thought I'd share. I still use simple wipes to take off my make up at night. Hope you try them out and if you help you can leave a comment and let me know how that worked out for you, we all have different skin types and experiences.


(thought I'd end a post properly this time, I never do! Weirdo)

Open Heavens: Alcohol & Immorality

Memory Verse: Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.Proverbs 23:33

Read.Proverbs 23:29-35
Pro 23:29 Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?
Pro 23:30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
Pro 23:31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
Pro 23:32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
Pro 23:33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Pro 23:34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
Pro 23:35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.


Ephesians 5:18 (Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit), says you should be filled with the Holy Spirit and not with wine. That means, you should be so full of the Spirit that there will be no room for any spirit of liquor to occupy. If you are not full of the Holy Spirit and you drink beer or alcohol, you cannot avoid confusion. Those who take alcohol will most likely find sexual sins attractive. Some of them have as a result gone into incestuous intercourse with their daughters or relatives or even rape. Alcohol makes one more vulnerable to sexual sins. If you were struggling with your flesh and you start taking alcohol, you will descend into a deeper level of bondage. Verse 33 of today's reading says,

“Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.”

Some Christians will build their personal houses and instead of creating a prayer room there, they will have a bar where they will stock different kinds of wines. When you try to dissuade them, even their wives will rise up in their defence. Don't be surprised to find that they are already having mistresses outside, and if care is not taken, the strange women that are now more appealing to them may drive away their legitimate wife and take over. That shall not be your portion!

The truth is, any Christian sister who allows her husband to drink alcohol is simply setting the stage for strange things to happen in her home. Is your husband saying, 'It is just a little harmless sip once in a long while', remember a little occasional sip today will become an uncontrollable gush tomorrow. Be warned! In addition, having a bar in a Christian home completely negates the ethics of godliness. It is an invitation to the spirit of liquor to have its permanent abode in that house. That house will no longer have peace! Having a bar in your home is having an altar for Satan in that home. You can be sure that the Holy Spirit will simply step aside. Believers' homes should be identified by the serenity of the place and by the provision of a prayer room for God. You should have an altar where God will meet with you daily. If you don't, convert your bar or one of your rooms into such an altar for the King of kings today!

Key point
If you truly want Jesus Christ living in your house, remove all thrones you have created for the devil.

Hey guys, hope you had a great week and a fun weekend, yet another week starts tomorrow... sigh.
Just wanted to leave you guys with a link to bible verses about drinking and getting drunk here you should go through it to further understand what the bible says. Drink but do not be drunk. The verses say a lot and give you a greater understanding of it all. Hope you have a great week ahead.

Happy Mother's Day to my Lovely Mother and all the Mothers and Mothers to be out there! This picture is about 2 years old, my hair was still really short.
My fave old school picture of my mum.

In other news, I might be MIA on the blog for a little while because I've been getting really busy but believe me I WILL TRY when I have the time. I really don't want to mess it up honestly, so I need to be very careful with time and everything else. I know I've been on a roll with the constant blog post almost everyday through last month and this month so far so please give me some credit for that :)
I'll be back in full force soon enough... so please bear with me.

Book Review: The Spider King's Daughter by Chibundu Onuzo

I finished reading it yesterday and I loved it. After some point I really didn't want to put it down, I kept wanting more.  Honestly I wish it didn't end but then what else could have happened. It's about "Runner G", a Lagos hawker that was born with a silver spoon but later looses it all as a result of his fathers death and "Abike", a rich man's daughter who is blind to so many negative things her father has done for his success and somehow it's all related to Runner G and others in his life. Somehow they meet and take a liking to each other and one thing leads to another to another and another... Of course Runner G wasn't prepares for all he was about to find out in this little relationship he had going on with Abike but later on it's all revealed somehow and the outcome is NOT Pretty!

I'm really not going to give it all away. I really loved it because there were bits and bobs I could relate to like liking someone and how it feels, the initial excitement. I also loved the nostalgic feeling I got when the author described Lagos and some little tings associated with us Nigerians, the broken english and so many other things. I be Edo babe but I'm a Lagos girl still, born and bred.

Open Heavens: Confused Guidance

Memory Verse: And be not drunk with wine wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18

Read:1 Corinthians 12:13-14

1Co 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1Co 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.


A significant thing worthy of note in the story of Ahasuerus in Esther 1 is that we should beware of substances capable of influencing our emotions or decisions. What the king would not normally do, he did under the influence of wine. Alcohol has done so much harm to people today. Several individuals and families are victims of alcoholic drinks. As a result of alcohol, many families are experiencing degradation of their living standard, non payment of children's school fees, attraction to extra-marital affairs, and other vices.

Confused Girl

I had no idea what title to give this post hence the title "confused girl" lol... lame.
But anyway Hi guys! Loving the weekend? These pictures are from dinner last week, I looked pretty decent so I decided to do an OOTN. It's really casual so it could pass for a day look as well. No actually, I wore it during the day and just couldn't be bothered to change for dinner.
Love this jacket, got it on sale from Zara. I really like how bright it is and the leather trims it has along the zips and collar.

Nice Guys DO NOT Finish Last - Onyinyechi Okeke

My dear friend Onyi has also started her own blog and I'm happy to say she'll be contributing on this blog every now and then. Please visit her blog "Read My Mind... Now."

I think there are two types of men: the “nice guys “ and the “not so nice guys” as there are two types of women: “bad bitches” and “awesomenesses”

Notice that the picture of awesomeness is myself… dusting shoulders off… LOL

I think that nice guys/awesomenesses are the people who are into that forever and ever type love. They are interested in giving their partner the world, no cheating, just loving through the flaws into their partners’ full potential the way God shows them to.

I think that the not so nice guys and bad bitches are really just trying to have a good time. Theyre in the “right now”. Always. And if the future happens, awesome! These are the couples you want at your birthday party because boy, do they know how to have a good time

This “Bad bitch” Syndrome has women thinking about whether they’re the hottest, sexiest woman in the room at any given time; whether every guy in the room wants to leave with them. It’s a subconscious competition and its fun! Go ahead with yo bad self!
