Music

Artists i am currently enjoying

Lizzo her voice is beautiful and her songs are empowering  AND she can play the flute and hit the shoot.. check out her songs Boys, Fitness and water me you’ll fall in love just like i did

Swizz Beatz

He’s back with a bang. With amazing collaborations on his album POISON , he delivers that classic swizz beatz sound that’s heavy on the percussion and you can help but jam to my favorite track is Stunt he features 2chainz on it

K/DA: Popstar

If you’ve seen that league of legends video then you know what this is, its straight up beautiful graphics and and awesome chorus ( ain’t nobody bring us down down down)

21 pilots and Disturbed

I decided to group these two together because their music is one with a message. If you are a fan of 21 pilots you know that their music always hits hard, Neon graves really got me thinking i understand why it controversial but i think in this day and age the message is needed.

Disturbed decided to go with more ballads this time, there are a few hard and heavy songs but it’s those ballads that really get you. We even get to hear Draiman’s evil laugh!

 

Cosmetics

Kiehls SPF 50, y’all its dry season in Nigeria and i’m not trying to get turned into burnt toast bread. So i’m fired up with is baby a little goes a long way

Arami Essentials

I’m currently using their black soap Onyx polish and so far my skin loves it, in the two weeks i have been using the pesky pimples on my face has disappeared. It can be used on the face and body. I shall be getting more of it ( and yes they ship worldwide). Click here to get it if you are interested

Jojoba + Argan oil+ Grapeseed oil

The best thing for my skin this dry season, i mixed them all up and it keeps my skin moisturized all day long.

You can also use the O.G coconut oil and coco butter ( I know its winter else were so this would hep your skin)

 

 

Book Review: Confession series

Hey Guys,

Its been a hot minute, i have been busy with my work i just rounded up the worlds most annoying assay Nitric oxide antioxidant assay. I swear to all the sweet potatoes in the world i was almost at my wits end with this one. But thank Jah I made it through! And now this post is up because yours truly is procrastinating with statistics (don’t judge me!).

Tittle: Confession series, Book 1: Robbie, Book 2: Julien , Book 3: Priest Book 4 : The Princess, The prick & The priest

Author: Ella Frank

Genre :M/M/M, Romance

Rating: 4.9 ‘hot’ stars

Reader Age: Definitely 18+

I highly recommend reading the series in order because the stories are linked.

Julien Thornton  and Joel Priest are a married couple, they love each other but they need a balance in their relationship. Enter Robbie the princess of their dreams with his sassy mouth and beautiful heart, Robbie is just recovering after a breakup that left him doubting himself. Julien and Priest have baggage from their past, some of them life threatening but can Robbie heal their hearts before it is too late?

 

Ella Frank created the perfect balance for a polygamous relationship.

The problems i usually have when reading poly-relationship books is that most of the time they are not realistic and there is no balance. M/M/M books are difficult to pull off because of this and when you find a book that is able to bring both balance and a bit of reality into the story, it turns out to be a gem. The sex scenes were SIZZLING dear potatoes you might need to drink water so that you wouldn’t choke ( especially that scene in book two, oh wait you’ll just have to read it to find out). The dialogues are witty especially Robbie’s comebacks with Priest. 

This series is a gem, the characters are perfect for each other.

Robbie Bianchi is the muthafreaking princess of the world, he is fun to be around and caring. If color had a personification Robbie fits that description well, he brightens up the room were ever he goes and definitely brightens up Julien and Priest’s life. He brings out their protective sides but do not be fooled, this princess would cut you if need be.

Reading the stories i can see why Robbie was perfect, he is like a soothing balm for Julien and Priest, their ego’s are huge  and their wounds were deep.

Julien is a world famous french chef , he got his nickname ‘the prick’ on a cooking show ( to be honest the other contestant was being a dick). Julien blames himself that happened in the past and it hunts him everyday. Julien loves his husband and is clearly devoted to him, in fact it is because of Priest that he turns his life around for the best. Robbie was able to help Julien simmer down his ego to just the right level were it wouldn’t cause problems in their relationship. 

Joel Priest, the larger than life lawyer. Priest is running from a traumatic past, one he tries to protect his lovers from. He is a force to be reckoned with and no one messes with his men while he’s around. I like the way Robbie faces up to Priest, he was not afraid to call out is bullshit even though Priest is scary ( the good kind of scary). Despite his love of control Priest never used it against his lovers, he never made them feel less than they were, he uplifted and protected them.

He protec

Book 1-3 was them working out their relationship and book 4 is the nice tied-up happy ending bow. 

I missed them as soon as i finished the last book.

I recommend this series if you love love and witty dialogues and super smexy scenes you won’t regret it.

Life Nugget #1

Hey guys,

Its November and we are officially one month from 2018 ending. This year has been a great learning experience for me, i discovered a lot of things about myself and i have been having a good bonding session with friends and family. I started to allow myself to enjoy being at home, i started to allow myself to invest in my country. 

 

One of the things i pray for daily is for me to live and what i mean by that is simple. I want my life to be filled with color, i don’t want to run away and hide anymore i want to experience every thing. 

The mistake i made before coming back home was to believe what people told me about my country and about how life works. i realized people experience things what maybe shitty for one person might be heaven for the next. That’s exactly what happened for me i found a mini heaven in a place that is a raging hell ( well you get the point just turn on the news).

One of my favorite quotes is by Hunter S. Thompson 

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride”-Hunter S. Thompson 

I am not making any new years resolution next year because i think they hold me back ,i put so much pressure on myself to complete them and then end up giving up before March. Instead i will continue to improve myself as i started doing this year.

So you beautiful human/unicorn being reading this my challenge for you for the remaining part of this year and next year is simple..LIVE

Go outside ( i know the world is a scary place) and do stuff, run that marathon, ask that human ( or unicorn) out and if you get rejected hey there’s plenty unicorns in the sky. Look at your body and feel ya self (Beyonce style people this blog is semi PG). 

Be Brave…Live don’t Just Exist 

As Always,

Discussion: Book Influence

Hey guys,

Have you ever said this, ”it was the book that made me do it”.

I definitely have, i realized that the kind of books i read really influence me for that whole period of time.  Does the character have a tattoo? Guess who wants one. 

Okay so this is the one that really got me, i hate eating cereals  i’d rather go hungry instead.  But for some reason i started craving one when i was reading a book and the MC was eating cereal. After the book i went back to hating cereal…absolutely weird

Does this happen to you?  Leave some character quirks you adapt when reading books in the comments below.

Horror Books

Hey you beautiful Rainbowland citizens,

I am not a horror movie fan, whats the reason you may ask? Gather round let me tell you of a couple of stories why this unicorn cannot watch horror movies.

  1. On my 11th birthday, i asked my dear brothers for a BARBIE doll and i was excited i would finally have an original barbie doll. so when my parents opened the box and i saw fucking CHUCKY in his bloody glory holding a knife, i screamed and then ran out of the room. Ah siblings, aren’t they just lovely?
  2. now this one was my fault. For some freaking reason when i was 14, i was alone in the house and i thought it would be a very good idea to watch not one but TWO horror movies, genius right (for someone who is scared of her own shadow). Oh and one of the movies was SILENT HILL you know the one with bodies stripped of their skin yep that one. Now power outage is common in my country (it’s called NEPA) and so it happened, there was no light and it was pitch black. I called my best friend and this muthafluffer hung up on me ( i was speaking gibberish to be fair tho). And then…..the gate opened and i was shitting my pants thinking the pyramid man was going to get me. It was just my uncle coming to give me the ice cream he promised…and then i left the light on in my room for a long time.

 

Now that we know i do not like horror movies let me recommend some lovely horror books ( i know right !! The irony)

  • As always on my list, they were my first horror book series and among the first set of books i got from Waterstones. The saga of Darren Shan its not to scary ( i say that because i think i imagined the bad guys as cashews..totally random i know)
  • Boy meets ghost, ghost is stabby what more for the perfect romance. Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake.

 

  • The next one is a comic on Tapas, Black pupil. A reporter gains the power to see otherworldly beings after a mysterious black liquid pops into her eye. I suggest not eating when reading this one.
  • And finally they say the apple does not fall far from the tree, and i say genetics fam muthafluffing genetics. Allow me to introduce to you Locke & key by Joe Hill son of the Stephen King. Yes, that means as you read this comic hold a cross near by it will do you good.

locke

Ans so rainbow peeps i have completed my blogger duty of bringing you horror books, ranging from mild to WTF. I  sincerely wish you good luck with these books.

 

As always ,
