Life Lately: Lagos Living, Easter plans, my aso-ebi hack & more

Hi guysssss!!! It’s great to be back. It has been a roller-coaster period at work, especially since I started a new project and had so many other things going on at the same time. But we thank God for monitoring spirits (you know yourselves, lol) who did not relent in asking me the golden question – ‘when are we getting a blogpost?’ every single week! Now I am back to share what has been happening in my life over the last 6 weeks (chai, has it really been that long… Read More

Life Lately: How I spent my last holiday (Dec 2017)

Happy New Year joyful people of Kemi’s Blog land!!! My heart is so full of JOY and positive expectations for 2018!

Life Lately: November highlights and the December Giveaway

Hi guys!! I am so excited about December – I can’t even keep calm. It has been a very busy period at work but that has not made my excitement about December wane one bit!

Kemi’s East African Invasion series: Episode 3 – The Remarkable Rwandan edition

Hello people!!! How are you doing? It’s been about a week since I returned from Rwanda and I am yet to get over the entire experience. One of the good things about capturing memories on my trips is that they keep me entertained until the next adventure. I regularly look at pictures from past trips and find myself giggling when I remember the backstories of some of those photos. On this trip, I took it one step further and actually documented short videos using Instagram stories (see summary of daily… Read More

My annual thanksgiving letters also happen to… Read More
