Life| The Blogger TMI Tag

26 Feb

So,I’ve seen this tag floating around Youtube and various blogs. It really is too much information, but that didn’t stop me watching reading and watching a host of them! Want to know more about me…..keep reading!

Just a heads up, I started this at home and finished it elsewhere. If the answers don’t correlate, you know why! This thing took blooming forever.

blogger too much information tag

1: What are you wearing? A Minnie Mouse Onsie. It feels like sleeping in a custom made blanket. Awesomeness.

2: Ever been in love? Yes, Currently.

3: Ever had a terrible break-up? No, because I’m in my first relationship. But I’ve had a very messy friendshipish break up. Ouchy Mouchy!

4: How tall are you? Approx 5’5.

5: How much do you weigh? Over 10 stone, I think?. I weigh more than I look, blaming the muscles.

6: Any tattoos? Super dislike them. Though I feel like some people pull them off better than others. People forget that they are a lot harder to get off than they are to get on. Think seriously first. Choose to honour your body, it’s a gift from Heaven.

7: Any piercing? The classic standard ear piercing.

8: OTP/One True Pairing? I’m with him ūüėČ

9: Favourite Show? Probably Friends as I watch it the most! When you can recite the words, it verges on obsession. I also love Criminal Minds, anything to do with baking, How I Met Your Mother, Luther, Downton Abbey, Hart of Dixie, Grey’s Anatomy, It’s Supernatural and New Girl.

10: Favorite bands? Bethel, Delirious, Jesus Culture, DC Talk, Rend Collective Experiment and Coldplay.

11: Something you miss? University, it was an incredible time. As life has taken all of my friends in different directions, being in such close proximity was taken for granted! The University experience definitely prepared me for life after. Life after has been awesome, but so many lessons were learnt away from home that has made adulthood an easier transition.

12: Favorite song? Divine Romance by Phil Wickham.

13: How old are you? 23 years young.

14: Zodiac sign? Don’t believe in Zodiac signs/Horoscopes.

15: Quality you look for in a partner? Someone who loves Jesus more than me and know that I am what Heaven has planned for him. That sounds weird but if a man follows Jesus, he will respect and love me more than the average guy. Jesus is love itself. The average guy will be looking for a chemistry. The right guy would be actively pursuing an Godly ,honouring and lasting relationship. See the difference? Connections come, go, fade and get stretch marks. When someone is trying to be Christlike, there’s just a lot of rubbish that won’t go down. Have you ever seen two people who are truly Christians argue? It’s awesome. First because it rarely gets to an argument. Second because they are both arguing to make it right! Also all that other stuff, caring, responsible, assertive, kind and hotness doesn’t go amiss lol! I’m aware that my priorities are different from the norm. I don’t intend to have a normal relationship. If we are being honest, few relationships these days have lasting commitment.

16: Favorite Quote?¬†‘Find the beauty’. There is beauty in everything, if you can’t see it your not looking hard enough.

17: Favorite Actor? Can’t decide. At the moment Jennifer Lawrence, Idris Elba, Chiwitel Ejiofor, Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Isla Fisher, Kirsten Wiig, Ryan Gosling

18: Favorite Colour? Pinks, purples, blues, greens! Every colour can be worked well but lilac. I’m sure it’s possible. I should probably do a bridal mood board on it. Challenge accepted.

19: Loud music or soft? Soft, but when I’m ready to party, I don’t hold back…

20: Where do you go when you’re sad? I try to go to my knees in prayer but you can also find me with sweet snacks, watching films, in bed and talking to friends who care about me.  sometimes calories can be comforting!

21: How long does it take you to shower? 9 minutes.

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? 15 minutes. moisturise, pick out clothes sweep my hair back. I don’t wear make up everyday. If I want to look a little more presentable it will be concealer under my eyes, mascara and lip gloss. An extra 4 minutes. I am super uncomplicated.

23: Ever been in a physical fight? Once, but it was self defence. At some point you’ve got to defend yourself. I’m not about to spend the next 10 years looking for scar creams (rolls eyes).

24: Turn on? A well kept, suited and sarcastic man. I don’t really get sarcasm but I’ve always found it kind of hot. I am convinced this is why women love Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock.

25: Turn off? Bad smells and pride. Any guy who doesn’t appreciate me. You can’t smile at me and bring down my self esteem at the same time. Pokerface is strictly for the games table.

26: The reason I joined WordPress? This blog originally started on Blogger as a University addition for my final year project and a way to have my work online. It has evolved into my creative outlet!

27: Fears? Hurting someone, being without cake, being alone for too long. First it’s wonderful, then it’s lonely.

28: Last thing that made you cry? Can’t actually remember, might have been a little unwell.

29: Last time you said you loved someone?  This morning to the Mr.

30: Meaning behind your WordPress Name? Studio Chi has my nickname in it. Everyone calls me Chi and my blog is my online studio. Full of all my creative and completely materialistic finds! More importantly, Chi literally mean’s God in my traditional Nigerian language Igbo. So technically, this blog actually means ”Studio God’ or ‘God’s Studio’I believe all creative gifts stems from Him.This blog is His inspiration as well as mine.

36: Favorite food? Nigerian Cuisine, Jellof rice, ASSORTED MEAT (said in a Nigerian accent, nom nom), Italian(pizza, pasta), a PROPER burger with loads of meat and cheese, a proper English roast, Laduree Macaroons, Chin Chin (a Nigerian Snack) and most importantly….Cake.

37: Place you want to visit? Israel and anywhere hot in the Caribbean or the Maldives which is super quiet and private and I can feel the sun on my back and sip drinks on the beach. Where’s my tankini at?

38: Last place you were?¬†Outside, now I’m indoors? ha!

46: Last song you sang? As past of my daily shower karaoke session, The More I Seek You (Kari Jobe/Steffany Frizzel Gretzinger written by Zach Neese)

49: Last time you hung out with anyone? This afternoon, at my fav local cafe with the mr. Watching him attempt to drink coffee for the first time was pretty amusing.

50:Who should answer these questions next? Faith from Faylicious and Becca from KnitHappens. I miss your posts guys!

So there we have it!

5 Things We Avoid Saying….but really should.

12 Nov

zipped lips

‘Keep it zipped and no one gets hurt’?….

1. Your breath/body smells. Who wants to tell someone that a part of them stinks? Awkward as anything but everyone they meet will be grateful.

2. I really didn’t like that meal you cooked. It’s so much better to tell them now before they get excited and make it for¬†next big dinner parties main dish. To allow them to bestow that plate on anybody else is wickedness. And you know it….

3. You can’t sing. A big ouch, especially if they enjoy it and do it publicly. However, it will stop them being that person who gets laughed at on at the X Factor auditions. Friendship can be about saving people from themselves and embarrassing Youtube legacies.

4. We’ve grown apart, and this friendship isn’t good for me. Some people are in our past for a reason. There are some friendships too heavy with baggage to drag into our future. You are chosen to progress, live and learn. I say ‘choose’ because we have it in our power to change our outlook and consequentially the majority of our outcomes. Friend A does not want to progress, live right or even learn from past mistakes. Then has the cheek to try and plunge you into these mistakes with her? Friend B wants to love you and not wife you and continue to flash call you and finish YOUR contract minutes? (cheap skate). Friend C treats you like rubbish and abuses your friendship by lying but is sweet and coy when they need a helping hand. Since when did you become a yo-yo? You are under no stringed obligation to return to the scene of the pain. Be honest with yourself, it’s hurting like it’s burning. Drop it’s hot!

5. I love you. Yes, she’s the girl in and of your dreams and there is probably a reason why. Ha! She may say yes or no, but at least you tried. This isn’t Hollywood. If she marries someone else and you still continue to pursue her, you aren’t going to passionately kiss in the rain. Some one is gonna get punched in the face. Take the tip.

PS: What if….like seriously, what IF she says yes? ;-)……cue orchestra……

FYI: I’m really enjoying these posts and judging by the stats so are you! If you can think of anything you hate to say, comment in box below!

5 Things: That are just wrong……..and really freak me out

29 Oct

keep calm mug

Keep calm? I’m trying.

1. People who feel up their partners butts in public.¬†¬†A sweet kiss? Please go ahead but COME ON! Seriously, the butts not going anywhere if you play your cards right! We know you like her, we know you find her attractive and other biological stuff…….. but please keep it IN private. This means away from tube escalators, shopping centres, pavements and restaurants. Also, away from my face. Yes, restaurants! Whilst at a Thai Place Sunday night one man’s hands were getting a little too friendly with his girlfriend. All whilst they appeared to be casually socialising with their friends. Only I could see the real deal.

2. Children with lots of makeup and nail varnish on. A bit of a serious one but it has to go in. Please tell me why some 4 year olds are wearing more jewellery and make up than this 23 year old? No…urgh…no! Children=Childhood please!

3. Camel toe. No description necessary. Common among those who think that leggings are trousers. They are not trousers, I repeat they are NOT trousers! And the majority are not thick, why should I know what colour knickers you are wearing. Why should i know that your knickers have dots on them. Or little flowers or raunchy lace? There is an extent to being my brothers keeper. I feel sorry for all those guys trying to keep a pure mind because I’m considering wearing shades permanently!

4. Guys that longer eye lashes than me. It’s just so unfair…..sigh.

5. People who love their pets a bit too much. ¬†I understand that you dog is cute and has the cutest little ears and paws. I even understand how your pet can become your best friend. But licking all over your face and going about your life as if you are not bacteria riddled! Let’s just get this clear, you are not the same species! Cute and all but….limits. Please.

FYI: These are just my opinions!

5 Signs your growing up!

22 Oct

plane view

Suck it up and enjoy the ride….

1. ¬†The sudden realisation that your life before 18 wasn’t easy but subsdised! Paying for oyster cards, topping up gas cards and repaying student loans? Then they have the cheek to dangle the magic 18-25 railcard and snatch it from you after your 25th birthday. I’ll kiss my teeth, but not too much as it’s hard to find a NHS dentist with openings….

2. Your diary becomes more than something you put off buying till there are literally none left. Having a full time job means you loose the greatest usable portion of your day. Everything else commands organisation. Last week I realised I need to stop doodling in mine and actually write in it.

3. Your social life is planned and night’s in are appealing. There’s no impromptu ‘lets play outside’. If it is impromptu it’s fake, void of adrenaline and fuelled by caffeine. You need notice to ensure you have even have enough energy to attend. We would like to think there’s enough in us to go to those after work socials but unless its a prelude to the weekend(friday night), forget that jazz. Period drama’s feature heavily in these night-ins. Suddenly, finding out which maid took the silver spoon is worth Sky planner recording space.

4. When you get more wedding and baby shower invitations than party suggestions. To make the hormones current, ¬†the lovers and mothers have taken to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to chronicle their journeys. All those scans and ring pictures!( I secretly think this is cute, except when overdone….)

5. When a condescending cloud about the superioirity of your childhood descends upon you. ¬†You may start to say things like ‘when I was your age’…..and not even know it. All these silly ungrateful kids….

5 Things Tuesday: Why Can’t Men…

23 Jul

men cartoon

1. Read our minds! It’s completely natural for us to assume they have telepahic powers? One eyebrow means I’m upset, not finishing the chocolate means yesterday’s argument is still on. Right? ha!

2. Why can’t the majority of men multi-task? Please help me to do ‘a’, please help me do ‘b’. You relax because he kindly did ‘b’, but where is ‘a’? Side eye.

3. Why can’t men decide? From Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet to Ross and Rachel. For all the many women I meet waiting for you guys to make up your minds, like seriously….whats up?

4. Why can’t some men get it into their heads that a couple of characteristics don’t define their masculinity. What’s with the hands ‘checking’ down there hasn’t disappeared? All ¬†the ‘no homo’ assurances after every emotional display and pretending to be good at diy. Drop the screwdriver and call the plumber!

5. Why can’t men not have a but? He’s hot but he still clings to mummy. He has such a great personality but he’s a secret hoarder. He’s great with kids but his facebook is full of pictures of him in the middle of a bush, drunk with a traffic cone on his head. Kind of eliminates the responsible element. And the cycle goes again…..

If you like this…share it ūüôā
