Wishful Thinking

WOULD YOU?


 Imagine for a second that a new drug was available to heal heartbreak. If we woke up to news from the Drug Agencies of a pill you could take when heartbroken to ease your heart would you purchase it? The flip side of the drug is that once you ingest it you wake up without any memory of the relationship that caused you pain. Would you take it? People say no matter how bad a relationship turns out one thing you can be thankful for is the experience that leads to growth but what if the experience hurts too much to remember Is it worth knocking back a pill or two to forget the entire relationship? You decide. I will be discussing this on the morning drive this morning I mean it is friday, I am allowed...... lets have some imaginative fun.

Many Problems of a Woman

Re-Rocking WHICH WAY TO GO?


DavidO, Toke Makinwa and Asa Asika

A lot of women will relate to this post. Lately I find myself staring at my wardrobe and thinking to myself what do I do with all of these cloths? Due to the nature of my job, I get invited to Events some of which I just have to make an appearance occassionally and it helps that I enjoy going out too. I love playing dress up, The feeling I get cannot be described. Cloths and Shoes make me happy and i am not guilty of admitting that to the world. Many are the events, and even more "THE RED CARPETS" It is sometimes labelled black, blue, yellow but no matter what it is called, it involves you walking down a glamourous carpet spread that have photographers just waiting to have their lenses occupied with beautiful people. Lagos is fast becoming a fashion capital of its own so as soon as you get that envelope you find yourself asking what do I wear? This article is to shed light on what happens after I wonder if someone reading this has similar problems, what do I do with the outfit after it has been worn? the pictures are all over the internet I definitely cannot wear it any soon however gorgeous and pricey it may be to anywhere significant for obvious reasons, I cannot throw the outfit away because It cost so much and I sure wont lower my standards of buying expensive to ease my mind after it has served its purpose so what do I do? What are the rules to Re-Rocking an outfit? I know Kate Middleton is a Pro at this and someone might be thinking she is the future queen of England who are you Toke? Today I am wearing the same dress I wore above to the launch of an online beautique I attended in december. LOL yes I had to give it another 9 months before I could wear this amazing dress of mine and wait for it...... I am wearing it down too. Pick which look you prefer and if you have tips on how a girl can stylishly Re-Rock an outfit please help a sister out too. Special Thanks to BellaNaija for the picture above

IK OSAKIODUWA ASKS

WHAT DO WE WOMEN WANT?



Wednesdays are usually my day off, I said Usually because sometimes most times I find myself working and today was no different. I jumped out of bed at the sound of my alarm clock and jumped right back in after my bathroom calls do you guys want to know what sound wakes me up? Maybe in another article I promise to share that but today I made use of the snooze button for another 2 hours till I couldn't take it anymore. Today started like most wednesdays lately. I had to head to work to sort out some pending issue and the funtastic Ik Osakioduwa and Anita isedeh (omaliicha) handle The Morning Drive on wednesdays so I enjoyed listening and learning from them as I drove down to lekki.
I walked into the studio to catch the crazies as I call them both still on the show and Ik asked us (Omaliicha and I) a question, What do you women want in a guy? The Happily married guy didn't want to hear the usual answers and he said rule out money and finances because that is on the table as a must have ( My kind of guy) but I still found myself stuttering. What do we women really want? What can we not live without? i want to throw this out because i have to be really honest here many women don't know what they want and If you cannot define what you want from a relationship, how can you avoid what you do not want? I am tired of the amount of broken hearts out there I think we as women need to begin to take better care of our hearts. Someone said this to be once and it stuck like glue. "where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable" with that in mind please share with me what do you want from a relationship? 

I am looking forward to all your responses who knows this article might just be what someone somewhere wants to read so Share

Birthday Love

IT IS NANYA DIALI'S BIRTHDAY

I share most of my Mornings with this guy and lets just say I am a sucker for birthdays.. Yes, I admit it I am, the thing is I am a Scorpio. Extra special peeps (hi5 to all my Scorpios) but my birthday is at the end of the year and It can seem really far. I hear all the happy birthday's and all the fantastic plans people have that when it is my turn it is almost like people cant wait to say Happy New Year and do it all over again. So there you have it, I like to share in people's Birthdays. Lol 
So back to Nanya, We host The Morning Drive together every day of the week on Rhythm 93.7fm and It is his birthday today. He shares birthdays with the famous Serena Williams who he adores and wishes he could date. He is going to kill me for this but who cares

Happy Birthday Nanya,
You are Annoying but I Love working with you
May you have better days ahead,
May your days be happy, 
May you be less of a grumpy old man




Blow out your candles and wish for Serena even more, who knows 'they say wishes do come true' Coughs

Love from Toke

Apologies!!!!

I have been MIA...

When I said I would start Blogging for the life of me I didn't think I would have to dedicate a lot of time to updating my page/site/blog. Please don't laugh at me I know I can easily hire someone to update it for me but I was going for the personal effect. I want to connect with you all and I can only imagine how reluctant you would feel to share your stories with me if someone else was to read them all first. Back to my train of thought I was thinking err Top most 2 articles in a week?  Maybe?  Maybe not? Ok  you can laugh now. Another "Toke Moment' Aha!  I shall not be judged LOL. The truth is guys I am on the move a lot. You know the drill dontchya "the hustle" is real. Looking for money and shuffling between my jobs and life. Phew!!! I need me a moment sometimes. I promise to be better at this, in fact why don't I get straight into it now I promise to make my blog fun and entertaining. I promise to share so let me get down to It.
Wishing you all a great day and Happy reading xoxo

Toke's Quick Tips

Everyday MakeUp......

Ok ladies you might want to digest this, I will be sharing tips that i have acquired along the way to help, Educate, Inspire etc. On this Blog, i aim to please and i also want to learn more! ok lets go, when it comes to wearing MakeUp, i am a firm believer that less is more well depending on the occasion actually so for this article let us examine your "Everyday makeup" I mean when going to work, heading to a meeting, or just moving around in the week . I love Makeup, i think it enhances the beauty of a woman and even though many guys say they love their women without, I think they go out there and still admire a woman who is well groomed and to be honest, It is that little extra icing on the cake.
 You don't need much as i stated above, the first item of make up should be your Concealer/Foundation (optional) if you have a flawless skin like me, you can do without

The secret to Applying Concealer/Foundation is to keep It light. You have to remember the Climate condition and apply some on the areas you want to cover. You should also get a Concealer/Foundation one shade darker than your skin so that it blends properly.

The next up on your list should be your powder and like I said with the Concealer nothing to heavy. Ladies remember this is makeup for the weekdays and we want to look as natural as possible. You should also make sure the powder is your skin shade so it sits well on the already applied concealer to give you a perfect finish


After the application of your powder you can add some colour to your face with the help of a blusher. This is to highlight your Cheekbones and as I said to add some colour to your face. There is nothing as tacky as blusher not applied properly. Please invest in a solid blusher brush and stroke the cheekbones lightly. It is not a contest for who looks like a circus freak, it is to slightly add some colour while you still look natural. If you don't have visible high cheekbones like me you can suck in your cheeks as you apply the blusher. I cannot stress the importance of purchasing the appropriate shade for you. Please ask and try on as many till you find the colours that work perfectly for you.


It is essential to invest in a good eyeliner. Either liquid or pencil. You can apply this to highlight you eyes. Instantly you spot the difference. Your Eyes Pop and say HEY!!

When You are done with lining your eyes, you can play around with a natural lip colour. since it is light makeup I usually advice against lipstick because the gloss has a way of making your lips look less serious I'm not insane lol maybe it is in my head, but i find that when i wear glosses i feel less made-up



Last item you need to give your quick Makeup Weekday Look  a boost is a Fabush Mascara. Fabush means Fabulous Btw thanks to Perez Hilton... Brush up your eye lashes nicely and there you have it. I promise if you do all that I have written you would have yourself looking Amazing all day, all week long

Tears On My Pillow


Unbelievable!!!  'Miley And The Man I Call Mine'

That  is exactly how i felt when I heard that the man of my dreams recently got hitched oh should i say is getting Hitched. Well, rumour has it (Stop it Toke, It is confirmed, he is gone) that Lil Miley is engaged to Liam Hemsworth. Now that is a huge problem for me because i believe he is mine. To be honest I am totally obsessed with the Hemsworth Brothers "who isn't" just look at Liam. I always say I don't believe I belong here, I think I should be in LA mehn At least probably/maybe Liam Hemsworth would have found me and we would live happily through the days. (notice my lack of "ever after' well its Hollywood lets just say these people get bored with the thought of ever afters! To answer your question yes this is Miley the Bitch who stole my man, in my head i have killed her a thousand times... Lol and to think I was a fan of Hannah Montana oh well lets just say she's all grown up now. 


Stop this Madness..... Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds Too

Now this is way too much for me to accept. First off I must have been existing under a huge rock because for the life of me I didn't even know these two were an item till very recently. To be honest they are both undeniably good looking but doesn't this girl sound like she's got hot yams in her mouth? Yes, my friends that is what Jealousy smells off. I mean, I had a massive unending crush on Ryan and this is how he repays me? Lol I promise you all i am not crazy. These two got married SECRETLY do you guys think he is not happy? Maybe thats why he didn't let the world know. Maybe he doesn't love her and i am beginning to sound like a Stalker. Ok Guys share with me, Is there any Celebrity guy/girl you've ever crushed on? Married? Single? The magic word on this blog is SHARE

Hope You all had a great start to the week, Just checking In

Monday Blues

Welcome to Monday

Hey Guys welcome to my blog again.... Can you tell that i am still excited? I am at work now, you can catch me on the radio every morning all you have to do is tune in to  Rhythm93.7fm and we are connected.

Mondays can be such a shag in fact someone I know describes Mondays as the day from hell. Everyone is in such a hurry in comparison to the chilled and easy going weekend that just went by When you drive around on Monday morning everyone seem pissed off. The poor Traffic light becomes an enemy and the struggle to get ahead of the person in front of you is a contest that even the most reserved driver comes out a winner. LOL the thought of getting to work, deadlines, meetings and the hustle can be very depressing and poor Monday being the first day of the week takes the fall for it all. For me, Monday represents Hope. It feels like a new beginning, a fresh start and another opportunity to set right all that might have gone wrong the previous week. I know Life is far from easy but all we can do is try. You may be stuck on a job you don't enjoy, a painful boss, annoying colleagues and everything might look bleak but if you let yourself hope just a little bit, just a drop of hope can make the difference in your day. Stop waiting for the change to come, roll with the punches be that change you want. Hardship is a test of true character and it will surely Pass. Don't Pass with it, Stare into the mirror and tell yourself "Today is blessed because i am alive to witness it and No one i repeat No ONE will change that" If that doesn't make you smile, quickly tune in to The Morning Drive with the Morning Rose. i promise to make you smile.
 ok Toke back to work xoxo


Wishing you all a great week:)

Who Would You Be



I know we have been told countless times not to ever wish you were somebody else because the grass is never really as green as it looks from afar but can we all take a chill pill and be less self righteous and more honest. There are some days when you really wish things were different in your world. If  by chance you are feeling that way now, don't worry you are perfectly normal it happens to the best of us. Lets go on a journey together, trust me you would need your thinking caps and your day dreaming skills for this one. If you could have any ones life in the world (Living or dead) who will that person be and why? Remember the purpose of this exercise is to make you take a break from all your worries and what is not and wish your problems away. It helps, let me warn you though, when you get back your problems would be waiting for you (coughs) but hey, it's good to dream so I encourage you to indulge.

"If i could have anyone's life, I would pick Victoria Beckham. Why? I totally Love her and for some reason I think in her other life she was a Nigerian LOL *You all know what I mean*  She is The Epitome of Style, her Brand is second to none, C'mon  from Spice Girls to the world of designing and making millions of dollars from it. I love all her Birkin Bags (who wouldn't) Do you know that if you googled Birkin bags and click on images you would find at least 10 pictures with Victoria Beckham, it's like she has it all. She  makes having four kids look like a walk in the park and she is married to the Über Gorgeous David Beckham...imagine going home to that every night.?  I'll say Hell Yeah? Lol feel free to drop your comments and let me know how creative you can be"

Cheers
