The Ofadaa Giveaway Winner is...

Last week, Ofadaa, a review website for restaurants across Nigeria sponsored a giveaway on the blog, via Twitter. It's a nice resource for people looking for real life ratings and reviews of restaurants and it's very easy to sign up, use and post your own ratings. I've used it and recommend it.

Anyways, there were 12 valid entries...

Berry Indy Weekend

Hello Double D's!

I'm specifically calling you DD's today because on my last post someone referred to my large nose, and I responded with the fact that my nose isn't the only big feature on my person. :-| *chuckles to self*

Soooooooo, what did y'all get up to this weekend? My weekend started off packed, and was supposed to be full up until Sunday. And then, I went and ate chicken pie from a fast food place on Saturday afternoon... let's just say that by Saturday night, I was wondering if I was about to die. I was dizzy out of my mind for hours, and ended up throwing up in my friend's house - so embarrassing! Because of that, I canceled my plans and spent the whole of Sunday at home. Anyways, let's get on with the weekend shenanigans aye?

BERRY BEAUTY: Beyond Beauty Lip Gloss

Hey everyone,

This is my first ever beauty post. Well, like "proper" beauty post. You know with the swatching and things. I have to say this: Beauty Bloggers are trying!!! I never thought about how much work went into reviewing beauty products! Especially things like lip colors and eye shadows. Not only do you have to swatch, but you have to apply the product, take it off, and redo with the different colors. Shouts out to all the beauty bloggers! Keep your faces up :D

Happy Independence Day

I know it isn't independence day yet in Nigeria but I just read a Bible passage on Youversion and I think the message is so apt and timely. I know some people will say (and I quite agree) that too many of us are always trying to rely on just prayer for Nigeria. I think that while we push for prayer, we should also ACT on making changes. We cannot expect to keep on behaving the same ways we have been and see change happen. Change doesn't happen. We are responsible for making those changes.

Berry Long Holiday Weekend

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?! For those of us in Nigeria, that's "looooooooooooong" weekend! We had Thursday and Friday off, so it was a very welcome four-day weekend. How did you spend yours? I had activities every single day. Needless to say, I'm very tired this Monday morning. All I can say is thank God there's another holiday this Thursday. All I'm going to do is stay home and SLEEP!!! Well, that's the plan for now. I actually have an event for Thursday evening but I'm thinking about skipping it (Friday and Saturday have activities too, and I want to pace myself and not breakdown again).

Anyways, let's get on with what and what I did.
