Latest News!!!

Yo yo!

How's everyone enjoying their long weekend? Well, those who live in countries that celebrate May Day. I had a very nice weekend... over on Snapchat (BerryDakara), I shared snaps from this women's event I attended. Yup, I'm back to attending events around town :) Who knows? Maybe my weekend posts will make a comeback at some point.

It's May!!!

I'm not one of those 'Happy New Month' people, but May is the most special month in the calendar! Why? Mostly because it's my birth month, AND there are holidays in Nigeria (on my actual birthday), the UK, and the US. So, it's just a nice month for everyone :)

Well, this year, May's even more special because my family's reuniting. My "baby sister" from this post is graduating and we're all driving down to Alabama! Should I do a vlog on the trip? Then, my niece turns 1 and we're having a party of course! Then, we're all off to England and Scotland during the second half of the month! Does anyone want to meet up while I'm there? Email me at

And then, of course, it's my birthday on a holiday weekend as usual! Feel free to have a birthday drink on my behalf that weekend.

So I officially welcome you to May :)

P.S. THANK YOU to everyone who has reached out over my latest vlog. The support and prayers has been tremendous and overwhelming! My sister even sent a message saying that you guys, my blog readers are amazing! So thank you all. I've replied most of the comments left on the post. I'm still replying emails and comments on Youtube, so if you reached out via those means, I'm not being rude and ignoring you. I am definitely responding to every single message. GOD BLESS!!!

P.P.S. I've decided that my birthday starts today and ends on May 30th, so I'm accepting birthday wishes everyday for the next 30 days. Or should we make it 31 days? Okay okay, my birthday is the whole of May. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!

BERRY VLOG: Trying to Conceive/Get Pregnant

I must warn you, this video is quite raw and emotional. I have had it on my heart to speak out about trying to get pregnant for a while, but just never got around to it. I know I've shared a little here and there in my posts, but this video talks solely about our trying to conceive (TTC as they call it).

Berry Dakara Blog Reader Survey Results!!!

Thank you to every single person that responded to my survey. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of respondents - 64! And I thought I would have like 20 people, or highest 30. So I humbly say thank you and would like you to know I'm doing both my happy dances!

I promised to share the results, innit? It's in several images and I hope you all can see the results. It's quite transparent of me to share responses to all the questions, but I think it's fair.

Self-Development: Photography Class

Hey there!

How are ya and how was your weekend? I had a fun one - I flew my nephew's kite! If you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram (@BerryDakara), you know how that went :p I also went to my cousin's house for a birthday party and danced to some old jams. Did I ever tell you guys that people used to call my girls and I The Party Queens? The minute we got anywhere, the dancing started and we usually would be the last to leave because we were having too much fun.

Oh, and my niece started walking on Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woot woot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank God, because we were hoping she'd walk before her first birthday next month.
