Keeping it Casj

Monday, October 17, 2016

Hey Hey,

It's the return of the runaway blogger *hides face*. Did you miss me, yes or yes???

Forgiveeeeee me.

Let's be real for a few seconds, how do other bloggers do it? I mean, keep blogging like it's nothing even when they're dealing with a lot in their personal lives. I haven't been able to figure it out yet, so if you have tips, do let me know. I honestly wish I could share all with you guys, but at the risk of turning this into an Agony Aunt type of blog, I'll leave it as it is. One thing that I keep being reminded of every time these thoughts cross my mind is Phil 4:6 "be anxious for nothing..." and Lord knows I'm learning this the hard way.

Anyways, I'm back in Abuja for work (at this rate, I'll probably rent an apartment here soon) and back to life on a bit of a slower lane. For the first time, I can easily say I don't exactly miss Lagos, I only miss my family and friends and for them, I can't wait to be back. I haven't done anything remotely exciting since I got here, but that's changing this weekend...I can't wait to share Abuja with you in a separate post.

How're you living? How've you been? Tell me, tell me...I missed you guys and I'm back!

P.S: I have some good news that I'll be sharing with you guys, as soon as the i's are dotted and t's crossed. Keep me in your prayers and I will definitely do same.


My Pandora Story

Friday, September 23, 2016

I have to tell you the truth, I was never a fan of Pandora and their jewellery. I just felt they were too expensive.

But I came to love the idea of it. The possibility of story telling was so appealing and that's what sold me. And like a kid in a cookie store, I was confused by the endless possibilities and amazed at how many different ways to tell a story. 

Warning: Don't ever go into a Pandora store if you have money to spend. You will spend it all. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I have 3 charms on my bracelet (well, 4 if you count the pink stone stopper I lost somehow) and they each tell something about me. The camera tells you that I love pictures (more like being behind the camera, not in front), the passport that I love to travel (even though my bank account might try to disagree with you) and the star that I'm just a shining star. Lol.

Do you own a Pandora bracelet? If yes, what's your story?


Bomb Cosmetics - Handmade Soap Review

Monday, September 05, 2016

Hi Guys,

I feel like all of a sudden my sense of smell became very hyperactive...I have started appreciating smells/fragrances so much more. The small collection of candles that line my table will testify to this and my newest addition to the family, scented soaps, will also bear witness to this fact.

It was only expected that I would stop at the Diva stand in the middle of the Palms shopping mall when their pretty "cake slices" caught my eye. Diva stocks soaps and bath bombs from Bomb Cosmetics and they're available in so many different fragrances.

I got the Planet Rock and Hypno-Therapy for N1,200 each.

Planet Rock

Bomb cosmetic's website describes Planet Rock as a juicy, fruity accord of Cranberries and zesty Lime with supporting fruity notes of Strawberry, Raspberry, Plum, Peach, Apple and Cassis with hints of White Flowers on a woody base.


Hypno-Therapy as a mystic swirl of nectarine and cliantro fragrance, mixed with pure bergamot & thyme essential oils.

I really liked using these because they put me in smell heaven...shower hour became something I looked forward to everyday. The only downside to these soaps is that they disintegrate really quickly...before they soap even goes half way and that's because they have different shapes and fillings in them. For instance, the circles in Planet Rock came off first and I had big holes left in my soap, same with the spirals in Hypno-Therapy...after that, the lifecycle of the soaps just seemed to take a downward spiral :s

Has anyone else tried any Bomb Cosmetics product? Any comments? Let me know.
