A REVIEW OF NAOMI ISIMEMEM FIRST BOOK: BEFORE DAWN

"UNCATEGORIZED"

Before Dawn is a short narration of a young woman's journey into widowhood and her struggle through loss and rebirth. Throughout the two hours it took me to read this book, my heart remained in my throat, I was sad and I was angry and then I was sad again. The moment I finished reading this book, I just laid there in my bed and stared into nothing for a good thirty minutes. That's how much I was gripped I don't want to scare you. But that's how I felt, I had taken up this book expecting the usual sop story of a Nigerian wife whose husband died and family turned against her.. I was sorely mistaken. Before dawn is a book that surprised me, to say the least. It felt like I was…

5 WAYS TO INSTANTLY TO EDGE UP YOUR SKIRT OUTFIT

"Slider, STYLE"

Skirts are not my favorite things to wear.To be very honest, I've always felt like skirts gave me a really not so cool plain Jane look that I like to think does not resonate with my personality. So skirts are not the items I usually reach out for when putting an outfit together. But I know we cannot totally forego skirts in our wardrobe (I mean we can but why would we want to when there's a much sexier alternative like switching up. Edge up skirt outfit) plus I know not everyone is like me, some people actually do prefer skirts or wear skirts exclusively. I find myself thinking of ways which I can edge up that basic skirt in my wardrobe that I haven't worn in ages. Below I have listed out my…

And if you have and have been wondering if it's worth a try then yes, it is and I'm about to tell you why.
