In my first blog post, I mentioned a book which I had started reading. By the title of this post, you already know it’s The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi’s Wives ☺️. Have you ever had that one book that you start reading and you just can’t drop it to begin actual work? Yeahh that’s exactly what this book was for me.
Lola Shoneyin’s The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives is a novel that can truly capture one’s mind. Not only is it an interesting read but it also covers a broad spectrum of issues such as Feminism, Rape, Masculinity and Women Empowerment in the act of Submission. As the story unfolds in the setting of a polygamous family each character has distinguishing features that make them interesting.
Among the various issues, Women Empowerment will be my focus as it was an underlining theme I noticed in every single chapter I read. The main character Baba Segi believes that he is in control of the household and runs things but in reality, the “control” is in the hands of the women. The wives give him the false impression of power so their regular routines don’t get interrupted.
Even though I am really excited about this book, I don’t want to give out any spoilers. However, I would say that I believe that reasons behind peoples actions are actually influenced by either their upbringing or past experiences. Certain behaviors and conducts displayed by the wives in their home reflected this fact ranging from their treatment to one another and their husband Baba Segi.
I don’t need to go into further details to tell you how worth reading this novel is. Do grab your copy and tell me about your feedback!
If you have any other novels you think I will also find interesting please tell me in the comment section so I can check it out. Till next time 🎀

In an attempt to live it up for the busy Halloween weekend and post-birthday celebration, a couple of my friends and I decided to treat our pallets to the expensive taste of Steak- and what better place to do so than The Keg
We started off the night with a flavorsome keg-size of Jacob’s Creek Moscato Wine. It had an amazing bubbly undertone to the mouth with the appearance of the wine being clear and a soft aroma to it.
Our starter was a tasty meal of Escargot which was stuffed with mushroom caps, garlic, and herbs.
For the main meal, I decided to have something quite different other than steak. I tried the Pistachio Crusted Salmon which was accompanied with garlic mashed potato, bacon sautéed Brussels sprouts, and maple butter. However, I asked for the garlic mashed potato to be substituted with regular fries because the simple girl in me just decided to come out again lol! For steak, my friends had the Tender New York striploin: The King of steaks which were cooked to medium as per request with a side of french fries.
The Keg is a great place for a casual get together and a quick night out with friends. My meal was actually a waiter’s suggestion so I wasn’t fully aware of the Pistachio on the salmon and this kind of put me off a little from the meal regardless the salmon had an amazing flavor to it. In general, the vibes gotten from the restaurant was chilled and casual- 8/10 would recommend. If you are in a mood for high dining vibes without the pressure definitely try this place out and tell me about your experiences.
If you have any other restaurants you will also recommend please leave a comment. Thank you 🌸

Yeppp it’s my very first post yay! So first of all thanks for stopping by to view my blog post, reading the first sentence and hopefully moving along with me through this journey.
It has been a long and dramatic period in regards to me opening and actually getting settled to focus on this blog. I’m an extremely extroverted person but I tend to be a little private, so getting out of my comfort zone isn’t something I’m exactly good at. Hopefully, with this blog, I can get out of my little shell and show you exactly what my world looks like.
Also why my interest in photography? Hmm, capturing people and memories is exactly what I see it as. Currently, I actually do not have enough space on my phone to hold all the pictures I have lol, so I decided to get a camera! But being able to show everyone the memories and experiences I view is exactly why I like photography. Therefore I see it as an avenue for me to freeze a particular memory digitally for different people to share the same memory though remembered differently through a digital copy. Honestly, it’s another way which I relieve stress.
My lifestyle and way of living vary from loud to quiet, however, if I was to rate my current state, I would definitely be on the quiet side of the spectrum. This week I caught up to reading a book called The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives after a really stressful week. It’s a book I think everyone should read and I am definitely going to have a separate blog post on it. Yes DVSN released a new album.
I’m super excited about it you should all go check it out. My fav show ever The Walking Dead is gonna start soon, so I’m going to have a lot of content in my entertainment section really soon!
P.S: It’s my birthday tomorrow leave a comment telling me when yours is 🙂
