Thursday Tidbits

December 3, 2015

Can you imagine? I totally forgot today was Thursday, thanks to the lovely lady who reminded me on twitter.

Let’s dive in!

  1. I begin with our longish read, ‘P posted this Zadie Smith piece on Joy … made me really think. When last did you experience Joy? Fairly recently for me actually and it was strange.
  2. This creepy animation on our impact on the world, timely with all the conferences and summits going on eh?
  3. Bwahahaha for a classic over thinker like myself, this was hilarious
  4. My Friend Ore says there’s no relationship without the title, I reluctantly agree, I love this short piece on the what are we question. Cute huh?
  5. Among all the blog series I’ve ever read, this is my favourite: Beauty uniforms on A cup of Jo. with every new one, I learn more about different women, what’s important, building confidence… It’s great, read at least 5, or 10. lol
  6. I always forget peer pressure can still be a thing in adulthood, and it creeps up upon you without your knowledge.
  7. Ever wondered how sex scenes are shot? Mighty awkward. amazing how something like that could end up beautiful in the final shot. FYI NSFW
  8. I meant to post this last week and totally forgot, I loved this so much- Adele impersonators
  9. Speaking of which, can I say I’m not totally in love with 25? It’s OK but it’s not on repeat. Have you listened to the album?

I’m off to Abuja for a wedding this weekend so fun times! Going to see lots of good friends.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Love always,

    Ooh excited to read some of these. I also believe there’s definitely no relationship without the title. ALSO think the Adele album is OK. Actually a bit let down, sort of, but maybe it’ll grow on us.

    Thank you, Sabirah, for bringing a smile to my face. Loved all of these links, but I loved the “What are we?” Modern Love piece the most.

    Have a good weekend, and please post some non-Thursday posts sometimes, too!

    The article on relationships has to be the cutest, most relatable thing ever. Especially the end O.O Makes me sick. LOL.
