Fashion & Lifestyle

Detailed In Red by Elsie Ogianyo

Hello lovers!!! 😬😄 ..Oh my God, I smell love everywhere. Notice, how I started this article with “hello lovers”, instead of “hello people” like I usually write? Well, yeah, because this is the love month, and with the valentines day lurking, I am feeling rather compelled to just love you all, for this week, at least.
It is back to “hey people” next week, so you might as well savor the word while it lasts! (everyday is not Christmas or Valentine as in this case 😒😒 ), but hey, doesn’t still change my love for you guys “y’knoe?”.. :):):)

Urrrrrrggghh! I know I seem to be ranting about everything and nothing in particular, and I know I’m really supposed to be talking about some fashion or lifestyle thing, but err…no, it is love time and I have got to give to Ceasar what is Ceaser’s, so I’m talking about love today and maybe something about Valentine’s day.

First, I’m just going to put it out there that I love love 😀 and this should apply to everyone, since we are all created in the image of God, and God is love, so we were created from love :), with love and by love. I am honestly of the opinion that we are to show love everyday, to that special someone, family, friends, strangers, and even people totally undeserving of our love. Yes, (emphasis on “totally undeserving”) because that is what shows that you are a much better person than they are.

Don’t just wait for one day of the year to go all out and do something special for people, or for bae, be spontaneous for God’s sake :|😒

I think February the 14th should be made a public holiday, I mean! Saint Valentine didn’t die for nothing people! Humor me please. I am sure I am not the only one with this opinion, anyone out there? Someone? Buhari you there? Yes? No? No 😳 …I stand by my word, I mean think how happy we’d all be waking up on Valentines day knowing that its a public holiday! Even if you have nowhere special to go, or no one special to shower you with gifts, you can go all out for yourself, by doing something nice for you!

Now to those with baes, please do something extra nice for him or her this month, it does not have to be on the 14th, pick a day, and go the extra mile. And ladies please! Don’t always be on the receiving end, waiting on your man to get you something spectacular, when you know you have like 3 boxers and one “aba” wristwatch wrapped up somewhere. Ha ahn! Fear God! Save up, get something really awesome like a PS4? ( ha ha ha who am I kidding? 😂😂😂 , ok OK, all I’m saying is go the extra mile.

Love is about sacrifice and commitment, and as elusive as it may seem, it really is about a lot of things, but this is how I define it:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Yours lovingly. 💋💋

  1. Love is amazing! Love for bae! For my best friend! For my mom! My siblings! The girl that sells bread in the hostel that makes me not go to class hungry. The man at college hate that stops cars when I want to cross. One day in 365 isn’t enough for love. And one person out of the many you know isn’t enough to love.
    Love everyone!!
    I really like this section, Elsie.
    And I most definitely love you! Muah! ❤️
