Married Women Sex

Erm, before I start this post, I just want you to calm down. Don't worry, I'm not going for shock value or anything like that.

I've mentioned a few times on the blog that I really enjoy old, classic films. TCM (and AMC when I'm in Atlanta). A few Fridays ago, I watched one called Splendor in the Grass. It starred Warren Beatty (who was such a hunky fox mehn!!!) and Natalie Wood. The story was about two high school students who were dating, and the boy wanted to sleep with her, while the girl wasn't ready. What was funny was the boy's father encouraged his son to get a side chick to have sex with until he was ready to marry his girlfriend, who he said he loved. Meanwhile, the girl's mother was very adamant about telling her daughter to remain pure until her wedding night.

The girl (Deanie) confessed to her mum that she had urges though, and the conversation continued thus...

30 Things to Consider Before You Turn 30

There I was on FB the other day, just minding my own business, because that's what Facebook is for... OBVIOUSLY.

Anyway, I came upon a note written by a friend, Pelumi. I asked if I could share here, because SHARING IS CARING, AND CARING IS NOMINATING ME FOR NIGERIAN BLOG AWARDS (Categories 11, 18, 27).

Without further ado, here's Pelumi's list of 30 things Before 30. This is not like my 30 List.

Before you hit 30, 30 things to consider.

I am a fan of these types of articles so here is my attempt at being original. This blogpost was inspired by two of my favorite OAPs, (On-Air Personalities) who recently turned thirty: Gbemi Olateru of the Beat FM and Toke Makinwa of Rhythm FM (*note from Berry* To my non-Nigerian residents, they are on the radio here and their ages have caused serious debates online because a lot of people believe they're lying, and are really older. Which one is my own?).These are things I would like to do or habits I encourage people to develop before age thirty. And if you are above 30, I believe these still apply. Enjoy

Berry Lovely Links

Hi Dahlings!

So that's how I almost forgot to post this today. Sawry!!! But I've got some pretty interesting links today. My absolute favorite is #4 though. I literally spent hours reading most of the texts from Crazy Jewish Mom! So I suggest, you balance with some cake, ice cream, hot chocolate, whatever during the weekend and have a good laugh over the pure hilarity. In the meantime, don't forget to NOMINATE NOMINATE NOMINATE me for the Nigerian Blog Awards (Categories 11, 18, and 27 for those who prefer numbers... for all others - Best Humor, Best Personal/Lifestyle, and Best Overall).

Berry Asian Weekend

Hello friends!

Right now I'm on my way back to Lagos. I was away for a somber occasion (everyone please hold your family and friends tight, and let them know you love them today). The journey there went well, so thank God. I spent Saturday just chilling and resting, because I really needed it. But yesterday, I went to Asia. :)

As in, Asia Town.

The restaurant in Port Harcourt.

Oops, did you think I meant Asia, the continent? My bad.

Anyways, I grew up in Port Harcourt, and when I first moved back to Nigeria, I lived there with my dad. Then in 2012, I moved to Lagos for NYSC, met Cakes, got a job, yada yada yada. I used to visit PH very often (once a month) in 2012. I once thought I'd want to live here because it's my hometown (well, one of them), but after living in Lagos, sorry o. I like to have fun. PH doesn't have a wide variety of fun things to do. And no, clubbing every single weekend is not my idea of fun (occasionally, yes, regularly, no).

Where was I going with all that long story? Oh yeah, so last year, or maybe 2013, I heard of a new restaurant in Port Harcourt, that everyone was excited and raving about. In my last few trips here, I didn't get a chance to check it out. But yesterday, my mum suggested we have Sunday lunch there. So, I packed my bag, put on some makeup (because SHE was wearing makeup and I didn't want to look like her housegirl/driver), and off we went.

BLOG TALK: How Long will You Blog?

Hey Dahlings!

I was just walking one day, being berrylicious, and thinking about interview questions. One of the questions that came to mind was,
"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?" 

That question then took me to,

"Where do you see your blog in 10 years?" 

Which then made me ask myself,

"Erm, will I still be blogging in 10 years?"
