Always Smile- Pictures are Wonderful Memories

Have you ever received an album and you are not so happy with your collections? That is what I am feeling right now, so dissatisfied with my flaw to smile. Why am I so worried and concerned? If you really know me, you will know that i find it irresistible to smile in my pictures because I love taking photographs.

I had three types’ of weddings on different days, one was my registry, the other was my church wedding ceremony and the bigger one was the traditional wedding with the bigger wedding party reception. My church wedding was in my local church which was a very small gathering and series of photo shoots were taken after the ceremony, I must say I enjoyed every moment taking the pictures and they turned out so well.

A week to my traditional and wedding party, I was so stressed that I lost a bit of weigh and that reflected looking at my pictures right now. I like things been perfect but opening my album and seeing otherwise made me sad. My traditional outfit colour combination was unique and was the talk among my friends and people that saw some of the pictures that were posted on Facebook; I must say I was really proud of myself on that.

The wedding party took place on the same day immediately after the traditional wedding ceremony, I had a long gold coloured dress on but my hairstyle and bouquet disappointed me. My bouquet looked really scanty, my hairstyle didn’t come out well and now I am wishing “I could turn back the hands of clock”. Realising that my hairstyle wasn’t really nice in the mirror before the party, I just didn’t smile like I would have done because I was so bothered and I knew I was not going to get a perfect pictures collections..

My lesson for the future will be to smile all the time in public, so that I don’t regret my memories. I Just feel,  that blogging about this will make me smile and continue my day. Thanks everyone for passing by because I feel great right now.

Groceries shopping

For now, I will be writing about some of my experience in my new institution (marriage), which I am barely a year. I will appreciate your experience and comments.

A little confession, I am not sure I like doing groceries shopping with my man. Though I always enjoy his company but when it involves getting things to the house, I rather do it on my own. “No you cannot buy that now, No we don’t need that at home at this time”. Those are my husband’s words each time we are in the shop.

We ladies always like to try a new recipe or ingredient, at least to spice up our menu. Although, my partner think we should stick to what we know and have tried, instead of doing “food practical” all the time (that always sounds really funny any time he says that).

Most times, he saves me from unnecessarily shopping and wastage. Although, I always go back to pick anything I think is very necessary worth trying, and guess what guys? We always munch the new meal together and he compliments me for the effort.

Food for thought: Try not to buy a new recipe or ingredients when your partner is with you especially if he does not believe in trying new things.

Just sharing with Couples

If there was any advise, I ever remembered on my wedding day, it will be the advice about been patience with my man. “Lola, you ought to be very patient with your husband” that was the major advice from different people.

Marriage is sweet and interesting especially when you get married to your friend, for instance in my own case. My husband and I were great friends before we started dating. Nevertheless, we also got our issues especially when making some slight decisions. However, those wedding day advice always echoes back to me and keep me away from arguing all the time.

In as much as my husband always like to get things done fast and assume I know all he wants, I always try to overlook it and assume that this is a normal situation. This is a period of learning new things about ourselves.

Food for thought: Be patient with your partners to avoid regular arguments which could lead to long term separation. The early period of marriage should be seen as a learning phase and so both parties should endeavour to understand themselves at this period.


Welcome to the world of bloggers

I have finally taken a bold step to post my first Blog, I had created this page for almost a year, but never sure of a topic to write about….., Welcome to the world of bloggers Lola, I just hope I tend to keep it up, not sure but I will try….

I remembered the first time I ever tried to bring a website to life when the statement stated “Hello world”, I was so thrilled, I felt like a Geek after learning Html and Css. I do not want to bore you but to appreciate blogspot for giving me a platform where you are not required to be Technic to achieved technical results.

What am I saying? it was so easy putting up this website and yes, it was without stress.What should I write about? I am not sure, but I will definitely get inspired as times goes on. I am not such a good writer, but I guess this will be a good medium for improvement.

Who is Lola? I am born in Nigeria but presently live in Ireland . I am introvert and do a lot of thinking. I love my Country but I am not so proud of where I come from especially knowing about lots of suffering among the masses and corruption among the leaders of the country. However my main aspiration is to see the world become a better place
