The Recession, Changing Plans and Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist

I come from a family of big dreamers and over-achievers. My father worked for years on Happy Land, Happy World, a Nigerian theme park that was supposed to be like The African Disney World. My mom left behind the stability of a really great job and moved to a third-world country to create a life for herself. I have one sister who’s in medical school and another one who’s a filmmaker. Reaching for the stars is in my blood people. So it’s no real surprise that the career path I chose to follow is a difficult one. We Ajayis don’t know how to do things the easy way.

When I first decided it was time to go back to Nigeria for a while, I was devastated. I love Nigeria and I can’t wait to spend time with my family and friends there but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel like a failure having to move home at the age of 25, a college graduate who just couldn’t find a job. It’s a hard pill to swallow and incredibly difficult not to feel like I failed to measure up. We all have plans for our lives; how does one come to terms with the fact that things aren’t going to unravel as planned?

Then I remember Santiago. In this dream-crushing recession, Santiago is like a beacon of light, a familiar friend constantly reminding me that a detour and the end of the road are two different things. I remember that he had a goal too and he left everything he knew behind in pursuit of that goal. He trusted God (fate/whatever), gave up his possessions and… was robbed for his trouble. It took a year before things picked up for him again.

So yeah, I thought I’d be a kick-ass editor by now (on my way to being a respected and successful writer) and my pride is bruised because instead, I’m unemployed and moving back in with my parents. But I have faith in God and the talent he gave me and I believe that this is just a detour.

Thanks Paulo Coelho : )

The 5 Best Commercials of 2011

As 2011 comes to an end, it's nice to look back and make "Best of the Year" lists. Since I spend so much time watching television and I don't have a DVR, I watch a lot of commercials. Here - in my humble opinion and in no particular order - are the five best commercials of 2011.

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Commercial: This commercial makes me laugh, without fail, every single time I watch it. You have this cop talking to a class during career day and this kid (who is better than some actors twice his age) is just so smug when the police come to take his dad away later.

The Force: Volkswagon 2012 Passat Commercial: This commercial premiered during the Superbowl along with commercials that featured crazy graphics and Ozzy Osbourne. But if you ask me, this one was the best. It was simple and cute and something everyone could relate to (Star Wars is universally known even if you're not a nerd).

2012 Honda Pilot Commercial While Ozzy's commercial with Bieber wasn't as funny as people (by people I mean me) expected it to be, Honda's little tribute to the rockstar with an Acapella version of his song "Crazy Train" was kinda perfect once again proving sometimes it's better to keep it simple. Click here for the extended version.

* How much do we love the random black kid?

Microsoft "Dog.PPT" Commercial : When I was a kid and I wanted a dog, I sat my parents down and read them a little essay that I worked really hard on, which highlighted all the reasons why having a dog would benefit them. This kid used a powerpoint presentation. Who got the dog? It wasn't me.

We've all tried to convince our parents to give us something at some point. Microsoft took that universal experience and gave us a commercial everyone could chuckle at.

Chevy True Stories "My Dad's Car" Commercial: I am totally that ridiculous sappy bitch who will cry at a commercial. But before you judge me, know that I have standards. A Kay Jeweler's commercial isn't going to do anything but make me change the channel. Or throw up in my mouth.

But this Chevy commercial makes me a little teary-eyed every time I watch it. Because that Chevy Impala is beautiful and because these are real people. And who wouldn't want to do something that awesome for a loved one?

Anyway, those are my favorites; what are yours? Is there a commercial I didn't include that you think should be on the list for the best in 2011?

Veganize It: Milano Cookies

Because I love carbs, my biggest priority since going vegan has been finding recipes for the baked goods I once enjoyed. I've said it before and I'll say it again; I would not survive if I couldn't eat my sweets. Call me a fatty all you want because of it.

My most recent project were Milano Cookies.

 I followed this recipe.

Not bad, right?

I used wheat flour instead and skipped the orange zest because I didn't have oranges around.

So what's my verdict on the Vegan Milano Cookies?

They were shit.

The cookies were way too hard; I almost broke a tooth eating one. I try to use wheat flour for all of my recipes but this is one that really needs white flour in my opinion. I think I used too much dough for each cookie because they weren't thin at all. So yeah, these were one giant disappointment. But...

I'mma try again.

JMO: Finance Guys and Gold Diggers

So I'm browsing (because I love it so) and I notice there are a lot of posts about finance guys (because let's face it, most of the stories are about men) and how dating them almost always ends in disaster. From there I stumbled across the GS Elevator twitter feed which I find hilarious and my sister finds horrific.

*Am I a bad person for laughing? I don’t think so. I’m just not surprised that people can say evil things.

Anyway, I feel like it's 2009 again and the uproar about the whole Dating A Banker Anonymous “support group” is still fresh. Are you completely drawing a blank? Click here for a refresher. 

Though no longer exists, there's something that never gets old about this topic: men who are banking and the women who date them. 

What I find funny is the outrage. The ladies that started the Dabagirls site received all types of hell. Not for duping The New York Times but for being honest about their preferences. And now with the stories on Gawker, people are so quick to chime in with their “maybe next time she’ll think about dating someone for more than just money” comments. Oh please. 

It’s not just the money, it’s the lifestyle. It’s dating someone who speaks your language and is interested in things that interest you. Let’s take the paychecks out of the equation for a minute; what does a teacher have in common with a woman who works in an industry like fashion? What the hell are you guys going to talk about on a date? I’m not saying it never happens but women who date guys in finance aren’t likely to date the guy who majored in education because they live totally different lives. These women aren’t gold-diggers; they’re snobs (no judgment ladies. Everyone is a snob about something).

I have very little sympathy for most guys because THEY make it about the money. I’m sure this doesn’t apply to all men but there are enough of you. If you’re doing well financially the majority of the conversation you have with a woman involves how many figures you make, how exclusive your neighborhood is, where you vacation, and how often you frequent the best restaurants in the city. You’re basically telling her that the only redeeming quality you happen to have is your bank account.

If you’re just never going to make the big bucks, you still make it about money. Except you go on the offensive and go on and on about how money is the root of all evil like you’d turn up your nose to a million dollars. And then you start talking about how you’re looking for a woman who “isn’t a diva” or “is down to earth” as if a woman can’t be ambitious if you’re not.

So my question is why do men make it all about money? How about having a personality?

Happy Thanksgiving Guys!

Sorry, I've been MIA; my laptop died on me so I've been computerless since Sunday. It's so hard, I feel like I lost an arm.

I'm spending the day with my family in Connecticut but I wanted to take a moment to share this amazingly offensive video. It seemed fitting.

Enjoy your day!

Best Twilight Spoof EVER.

In honor of the beginning of the end of the Twilight saga (Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens today), I just wanted to share this little jewel.  It's old but so good imo.

Before I start getting hate mail, I just want to (once again) write that I don't hate the movies and I read all of the books. Calm the f-ck down. 

Have a sparkly Friday ; ) Am I the only one who misses Olivia Munn on Attack of the Show? I can't be...

Geek Warning: This Is A Battlestar Galactica Post.

Look what I saw today on Facebook!

Aww, I miss BSG.


I'm rewatching the series again with my sister this time.

Of course she loves it.

During my EW interview, one of the editors asked me if I watched Caprica. I didn't. Should I? I just couldn't get it up for Caprica when it first premiered but maybe I'll try again.

Today in Frivolity.

  1. Why do people dislike Jennifer Love Hewitt? Did I miss something because she is constantly getting slammed on blogs. She seems so sweet in interviews; isn't hating her like hating a puppy? Maybe I'm biased since I can't hate on anyone who can publicly admit to loving both The Bachelor/ Bachelorette and Twilight.
    I do, however, have some theories on the JLW hate:
    • She's a hopeless romantic and she seems to jump from one relationship to another like a teenager. Except she's a grown ass woman.
    • She's not a stick figure like most actresses but she doesn't have this perfectly curved, other-worldly body like Christina Hendricks, Beyonce or Kim K. It's almost too normal and real and how DARE she look like a real person?
    • She's kinda of a dork but not in an ironic, hip way.
    • She used to play the dream girl in movies and now her career is kinda one big meh. People must love that the "it" girl grew up and isn't the teen dream anymore. Celebs: we build them up to tear them down.

  2. Dakota Fanning talks about being too young to pose for King perv Terry Richardson.
  3. Have you had as much trouble as me imagining Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderamma as a couple? You don't have to imagine anymore; here's a pic of the lovebirds together that doesn't involve them tonguing each other down.
  4. Ashley Greene says she's still totally grounded despite all the Twilight fame. Riiiiiiiight.
  5. Speaking of actresses in Twilight that twihards don't really care about because they don't get to sex angsty Edward, Nikki Reed is Seventeen magazine's cover girl and she talks about how fame ended up tearing apart what was once this. Tis' life I guess.
  6. Devastated Kris Humphries is going to sign the divorce papers. Fret not sad giant man, it'll be okay. You'll find a nice girl with real body parts.
  7. Jesse James is still a douche and his penis is probably diseased.

The Hunger Games Trailer Is Here And It's F*cking Awesome.


What's up everyone? Everything kosher? I'm so thrilled to be done with a project that was taking way more time than I expected. I'm so relieved that I have time to tweet and blog and all that stuff with my free time again.  I'm psyched. It's that kind of day.

So I'm late with this because if you care at all, you've already seen this about a dozen times (I'm being modest with the number). With that said, did the Hunger Games trailer blow your mind? Because it blew my mind.

I've spent months worrying about Hollywood bigwigs ruining a fantastic trilogy. First the casting made me all types of confused and then that anemic teaser trailer came out and I was like "aw shit, they don't have footage to show because the movie probably SUCKS". I'm happy to say I was wrong. I don't know about you guys but I am so excited about this movie!

Well done Hollywood bigwigs. Well done.

Check out the trailer. I'm not afraid to admit that I've gotten choked up at 2:10 every time so far.

Super Excited!

Randy: There are certain RULES that one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie. For instance, number one: you can never have sex.
crowd boos]
Randy: BIG NO NO! BIG NO NO! Sex equals death, okay? Number two: you can never drink or do drugs.
crowd cheers and raises their bottles]
Randy: The sin factor! It's a sin. It's an extension of number one. And number three: never, ever, ever under any circumstances say, "I'll be right back." Because you won't be back.
Stu: I'm gettin' another beer, you want one?
Randy: Yeah, sure.
Stu: I'll be right back.
crowd cheers]
Randy: See, you push the laws and you end up dead. Okay, I'll see you in the kitchen with a knife. 

Yo yo yo! Yo...

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone dressed up over the weekend and had a great time. If you live in the Northeast area, chances are you didn't. I worked so even if the weather wasn't ridiculous, there would be no Halloween fun for me (The Children's Place: slowly killing my spirits since October 2011).

But despite the fact that I'm 25, working in retail and having to live through Snowtober, I'm in a fantastic mood! For one, November is a new month and a new month means a new beginning and I'm determined to get my fat ass moving and try that whole exercising thing again. If at first you don't succeed, right?

Two, this morning I entertained myself reading #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage tweets. Freaking hilarious. Laughter releases endorphins so you know, I'm doing my body good. In all seriousness though, breaking up sucks and it can't be easy doing it publicly so good luck to her.

Last but not least, I am beyond excited because I have an interview with Entertainment Weekly tomorrow! I haven't been this excited about an interview in a very long time people. Working at EW wold be a dream come true because I am seriously on their site every day. 

I go hard for EW people. EW is the Bieber to my tween. It's that serious.

I first discovered years ago when I was trying to get some info on the next season of my favorite show EVER Battlestar Galactica (RIP BSG). These days, I'm on it for everything from Hunger Games info to recaps (you guys know how I feel about all things Bachelor related but it's so much better with Kristen Baldwin's hilarious commentary thrown into the mix).

So I'm in a great mood. I'm gonna skip Terra Nova tonight and watch Scream in honor of today. I caught some of it a couple of nights ago and was reminded of how Matthew Lillard used to be my everything. 

What ever happened to him?

Today in Frivolity

It's been a long time since I've written a frivolity post. It's been so hard not commenting on the lives of people I'll never meet; I have no idea how I've been coping to be honest. But what matters is I'm here now. Let's begin.
  • Word on the street is Lindsay Lohan will be stripping for Playboy very soon. Cuz that'll breathe new life into her career.
    Seriously though, leave a comment if you're surprised by this news. And click here for your dose of Hot Mess Lohan snark, courtesy of Gawker's regulars.
  • Emma Stone (who landed Lohan's career) allegedly says she hates it when actors censor themselves because they're not authentic on screen or something. Love her, but she really should censor herself (ha) and not comment on the problems with other actors. It kinda makes her come off as a tool. She's 22 and enjoying the benefits of being an "it" girl in Hollywood right now. Let's see how she feels when she's 42 and all that enthusiasm starts to dry up along with the roles.
  • Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderamma (who used to date an underage Lohan) have reunited and it feels so gooood. For them anyway. I don't really care either way.
  • Speaking of celebs we assume are a couple because they made out (like you've never kissed someone for the hell of it), Scarlett Johansson (who has this and this connection to Lohan) is now being linked to Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They were spotted kissing and being affectionate in NYC recently by someone with a big mouth.
    I'm going to out myself as a stan and just say NO ONE WILL EVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIM. But I'm not upset or anything.
  • If the Kardashians (who are cool with the Lohans) trademarking "Kardashian Kollection Home" is any indication, we're all in for more fun. I'm talking linens and candles and plates. This is super exciting news.
  • You wanna read a stupid post about the best celeb bodies? Here you go (Lohan's not on the list).
  • Reports are claiming Jennifer Hudson (I've got nothing on the Lohan front here) and David "Punk" Otunga (the lawyer turned pro-wrestler of I Love New York fame) are no longer engaged. Bummer if this is true; they have a kid together.
On a celeb-related note, is it weird that I can spend hours playing those celeb love link games on Because I have. And I'm thrilled when I get a perfect score.

JMO: Blake Lively Is Not A Skank, Slut, Whore, Slore.

"Ok, so we're all here 'cause of this book, right? Well, I don't know who wrote this book, but you all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts and whores."

- Tina Fey's Ms. Norbury, Mean Girls

She's had the kind of last two years that catapults careers and she's  linked to some of the hottest men in Hollywood on a regular basis. This makes mean, bored housewives with nothing better to do call her a slut on because she didn't decide to go celibate after breaking up with Penn Badgley.

But you know what?  I applaud her. I take off my hat and say "well done good sir"! Because she is talented (compared to other actresses anyway). And she's 24, single and hot. Why shouldn't she date? Because she has a vagina?

Put down the haterade and think for a moment. If you're single, you're young, and attractive, you're gonna date. Yeah, the guys we spend Friday night with probably don't look like Leo and Ryan but that's not her fault. We all date; some dates turn into relationships and some don't.

You gotta sample the rainbow before you find the gold. Let her sample the rainbow!

I'm on a break from sampling right now. When I look at the rainbow Blake Lively gets to sample from and I look at mine, I get kinda sad.

Subway Playlist

  • Rihanna - We Found Love 
That's it, the only song on my playlist because I've been listening to this song pretty much all day.

It's been a long time since I've been this obsessed with a music video. With pop, it's hard to get really deep (the lyrics often leave much to be desired) which is why music videos often elevate or sink a song. This video definitely elevated the song for me.

In response to the Chris Brown comparisons: Duh people.

Conquering The Tribal Print Trend One Blog Post At A Time.

Yo yo yo! Yo...

So I like, wrote this post for Madame Noire about tribal prints in fashion and that whole Navajo moment happening right now.

You can check it out here. If you want to : )

Not Mandatory But Freaking Good:


I am OBSESSED with my hair people. It's the healthiest relationship I have. I spend more time on my hair than I spend on any other part of my body because it's important to me that it's healthy.

Haha, I like how I just outed myself; "fuck exercising, my hair is more important".

But I'm sure I'm not the only woman (or man) that feels that way...

Anyway, I've been growing out my curly hair for almost two years now. I love going on Youtube and watching tutorials on ways to keep it moisturized, combat split ends and stuff like that. And I have a whole folder of pics of women called my "Hairspiration Box"(which I've written about before). Nothing motivates me more than seeing someone with a head of big hair.

That's why I'm loving discovered the site after browsing besties Cipriana and Nikisha's hair videos on Youtube.

The two ladies write about their hair journeys, and give great tips on getting the best hair ever. EVER.

Both women take turns posting which is great because they have different hair types and therefore different hair regimens.

Cipriana and Nikisha aren't only rocking some enviable tresses, they are super-cute!

I love their style, I love their personalities, I love their site. Love love love.

Check it out and let me know what you think peeps : )

Veganize It

There is nothing I miss more than cheese now that I'm vegan. There is nothing on the market that comes close to getting the flavor right and it sucks.

But that never stops me from trying the faux stuff.

These pics are from a while back when my sister and I made a vegan pizza with dough we made from scratch (check for great recipes), mushrooms, Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese in Mozzarella and Yves Meatless Pepperoni.

The pizza came out tasting decent but I'm going to focus on making a pizza that tastes good without the fake stuff.

Stay tuned : )Link

Mini Celebrations

Someone somewhere once said something about life being made up of moments - fun and otherwise - and those fun moments being the thing that makes life worth living and I truly believe that.

Some of my favorite moments are spent alone with a book or watching a show or movie that tells a great story.

But I love spending time with other people just as much.

Saturday night, I hung out with my NY girlfriends and enjoyed a number of great moments in a great city.

Then I got sick.

C'est la vie.

A night out with these girls always starts or ends at Horus which is now one of my fave places in the city.

In random news, we ran into the ladies of Big Sexy. Fun night : )

Birthday Wishes and Champagne Kisses

So my birthday was Sunday July 31. I'm 25 now!

I've been looking forward to this birthday since I was a teen and I had everything planned out because that's what I do; I plan my future out like I know exactly how things are going to turn out for me.

So when being out of a job for four months, not being able to go home to have the birthday party I wanted and not having my parents around to celebrate with me kind of put a damper on my mood, my sister and friends rallied around me and forced me to have a good time.

And I did. I spent the day eating a yummy breakfast, getting a mani-pedi and watching Roswell (perfection). In the evening, I wore my new "grown and sexy dress", went out and had a great time.

Thanks to everyone who made my birthday special. I love you guys <3

So was turning 25 a huge change? Actually yes. No, I'm not sitting on the floor in my room crying because I wasn't carded at the liquor store (half of the office thinks I'm a sophomore in college). But 25 does feel different. I'm recommitted to getting stuff done.I read The Alchemist for the hundredth time and it means so much more now that I'm older.

My tolerance for bullshit is a lot lower.

I feel like I'm really becoming the adult I always hoped I'd be.

It's a great feeling to be happy with yourself. Flaws and all.

Veganize It: Nutella

It's been a long long time since I did a "Veganize It" post. The funny thing is, I've been documenting my attempts at veganizing meals I used to enjoy for years. I have so many pictures I need to upload and I promise I eventually will.

Anyway, I was in a shitty mood a few days ago so I decided to bake. Since, I didn't have anything of my own to bake, I took my roomie's gluten free cake mix and got busy.

By the way, Amber is totally fine with me taking her stuff and baking. She's not a baker, I'm a baker. She doesn't have to do the work but still gets to enjoy the fruits of my labor and I get to bake. It's a win-win.

So the cake was criminally easy to make and it came out perfectly ( I also made cinnamon raisin bread that was gangsta). The only thing I switched was apple spice for vanilla extract. Neither of us had frosting so she brought out her unopened jar of Nutella, a hazelnut spread. I have never tried Nutella before so I took a lick.

And then I had an orgasm.


But seriously guys, holy shit! I had no idea something that yummy existed and now I feel like the first 25 years of my life meant nothing. Nutella is AWESOME!!!

It's also not vegan. Dairy really does make me sick so I needed to find a non-dairy version of Nutella pronto.

When I googled "vegan nutella recipes" and a bunch of links popped up, I wasn't surprised. Of course I'm not the first person desperately trying to find a way to enjoy this decadent spread without breaking out like a teenage boy.

There are a lot of recipes to choose from and I plan on trying every last one of them. In the mean time, I needed a recipe that was super simple. I didn't have the money to go out and buy hazelnuts so I had to make do with what I did have: peanut butter, vegan chocolate bars and sugar.
Desperate times people.

This peanut butter can be purchased at Target. I could have done without the flax seeds but what are ya gonna do?
The NibMor chocolate was purchased at the Union Square farmer's market. I ended up adding honey to sweeten the spread after I realized (too late) that the sugar wasn't melting and it was making the consistency grainy. The honey was a great addition to this chocolate peanut-butter spread.

And there you have it people It doesn't have the hazelnut taste I love but it definitely satisfied my cravings. Here's the recipe I used as a guideline. I didn't use soy powder because I didn't have it but I think this came out well without it.

Not Mandatory But Freaking Good: The Sookie Stackhouse Novels

In honor of the season 4 premiere of True Blood (thank you God) this Sunday, I decided to write a post on the book series the show is based on. I don’t give anything away so don’t worry about spoilers.

I happen to live with someone who happens to be a bigger book junkie than I could ever hope to be. She’s what I thought I’d become after a liberal arts education.

Because of her love of books, I have access to a pretty impressive book collection in the apartment. I need never visit a library again.

If you like southern gothic novels or if you like novels about vampires, you’ll love Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse Novels. They’re pretty awesome. No, they’re not going to win any points in literary circles but they’re written well in my opinion, with lively characters, funny dialogue and rich story-lines.

I’m going to refrain from stating they are better than the Twilight series. The two novels are obviously for different readers. So I’ll put it this way:

The Sookie Stackhouse Novels are what readers graduate to after the Twilight trilogy. In other words, the Sookie Stackhouse novels are not for kids.

Would you let a 13 yr old watch True Blood? Exactly.

While I think HBO did a pretty good job with the show, I prefer the novels so much more which isn’t surprising since most adaptations suck (no pun intended) in comparison to the books they are adapted from.

What’s my favorite thing about the books? The heroine, Sookie Stackhouse.

I love the fact that Sookie is a pretty normal, modern female. Yeah, she’s got some fairy in her but she’s not a kickass slayer who can kill a vampire without blinking and she isn’t this weak, helpless little thing that doesn’t grow a pair until she becomes a vampire.

She’s a human (in all 11 books) who makes mistakes but doesn’t let the supernatural people in her life (vampire, werewolves, shifters, weretigers) control her.

While I enjoyed reading the Twilight series (I never felt the need to analyze it; that’s like trying to find meaning in a Kesha song), the main character’s dependence on the boys in her life irked the hell out of me. Then again, Stephanie Meyer’s heroine is only 18. She’s insecure and needy but hey, weren’t we all when we were teenagers?

Anyway, I also think the books are just funny as hell. They’re entertaining, sexy and smart without being pretentious. They’re pretty much everything that makes True Blood so popular (two more days people)!

If you love the show, read the books.
