Get You A Phone That Can Do This


              Imagine you were on the phone with your crush (bae in your mind) 

twirling in bed and lost in the conversation. Then nothing, your phone dies

so you have to wait till your phone charges properly till you continue what's probably one of the best conversations of your life.

Or imagine you had the Infinix Note 3 where you could just charge your phone for 5 mins and you continue the conversation  for up to 200 amazing minutes.

Forget everything you thought you could achieve in five minutes cause the Infinix Note 3 fast recharge just tops it.

Thanks to duo 4.5 A charging engines in the #InfinixNote3 your phone charges quickly so you can get back to doing whatever it is you love doing on your phone.

Especially in a place like Nigeria with power outages, knowing that sometimes all you need is 5 minutes to continue that important conversation makes a whole lotta sense really.

So get you a phone that can do this...yeah that's right only the Note 3 can.

Just here gushing about my infinix Note 3

So I've had the pleasure of using the Infinix Note 3 for the past three weeks.  If  you are in the market for an affordable phone that does super cool things then please read on.

 I'm not a full on techie person so i'm not going to feed you a tech review cause i'd just be talking out of my *bleep* and you definitely don't want that.

For me personally, this phone has too many features that makes sense for my everyday life and things that I do  which is why it's a win for me.

I've used an Infinix phone before, the Infinix Zero is amazing. Lost it twice, bought it back twice so i'm not newbie here.

For the Infinix Note 3 the design, the 6 inch screen/ display are the first things that hit you when you see the phone. It's a dream, sexy thang! i tell you...but see, it's not just a pretty face.

Hey Sexy

I mean come on look at it, doesn't it look beautiful? Up close there's no way you won't be tempted to grab this phone. It's got sexy on lock down. Design wise it's awesome...sleek and that metallic body....ooooh weee. Bottom line it looks good and solid but it is big.

Then again BIG is not necessarily a bad thing

6 inch screen BIG means you can comfortably watch your movies and series on it. Plus it's not just big for nothing, the display is divine. 

Now let's talk fav features

Screen Record 

Move over screenshot, helllooooo screen record.. being able to record whatever is on your screen as an actual video.. Do you know how awesome that is?

Now when i see a video or a bunch of tweets i need to share i just screen record as i scroll through them. I love love love this feature


Fingerprint sensor 

I don’t know about you but I like that one tap is all I need to access my phone. Pins, passwords, patterns….nope miss me with all that. I just think it’s too much stress but with this I can still keep my phone secure without having to remember anything.

But wait…there’s more

See all these selfies? I took them with just a tap on the sensor, so no more struggle front tapping just comfortably keep posing and taping the sensor behind when taking selfies.

But wait…there’s still more… 

you can also scroll through pictures on your phone and answer calls with the fingerprint sensor…you see why i love it?


Selfie camera (front)– 5 megapixel (has a soft flash)
Everything else camera (rear)  – 13 megapixel

Yeah the mega pixels don't particularly make you want to skelewu into the sunset but see it's a pretty decent camera..ESPECIALLY under natural light...amazing.

Battery life is very important this side of the world…I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you why. 

I’ve been monitoring how long my battery lasts and being a full on social media person who also  watches movies on her phone, my battery life has been pretty good, not completely depleted like i'd expect with all that activity going on.

So I found out more, and with the 4500 mAh battery that the Infinix Note 3 comes with your battery life isn’t drained so quickly. The Note 2 had a 4040mAh battery so this is an improvement.

It also charges super-fast, so i don’t have to leave the phone overnight to meet a fully charged phone, it can be fully charged in less than 2 hours so that’s a plus for me..


I gather it comes with a new software that everyone swears by – XOS

If it’s the reason for the pretty cool themes and wallpapers I have been admiring since I got the phone then way to go.

The icons also look better and not tacky at all and  the fact that you can switch between apps easily should be music to anyone’s ears and with this phone you definitely can.


Internal storage is blah, just 16 gb but hey it supports a memory card/micro sd card of up to 128gb…wawu! Yup so that makes up for it.


Feel free to read up so more about it and if it sounds like the kind of phone you need in your life please by all means get it….it goes for about 60-63k now and you can get it at any of the popular online sites or phone stores

Now it's not that alot of phones don't do all these super cool things, it's just that they would probably burn a hole in your pocket and at times like these you need a phone that comes through for you without having to clear out your account really.

One snag is that it doesn't support  the 4G experience, but i hear the 4G version will be released soon.

Check out my unboxing post for more pictures of the phone : UNBOXING

Infinix Note 3 - Unboxing

I recently got the Infinix Note 3 and i'm so eager to show you how the phone looks and what the Infinix Note 3 is working with.

                                            Packaging is on point..let's start there


Bam!!! The first thing i see when i open the box is this marvelous 6 inch screen and all i'm thinking about are all the movies i'm gonna watch on this baby.

Inside we have  USB cable,Adapter, Earphones (does happy dance), also a screen guard, user manual and pin (not captured in this image)

The phone is very attractive and sleek, makes you want to have the phone in hand every minute. I give it an A on design and this particular colour - Crystal Gray makes the phone pop.

Here's the back of the phone, with your Micro sd slot on your upper left and sim slots(supports 2 sims) on your upper right.

That square box underneath the primary camera and flash is the fingerprint sensor and one of my favourite things about this phone. PS (Back camera is 13 mega pixel and front camera is 5 mega pixel and comes with a soft flash but with this sensor taking selfies are such a breeze cause all you have to do is hold down the fingerprint sensor and keep snapping away)

                                            The volume and power keys on the right

                               Cool themes and wallpapers courtesy of  the new XOS interface

Wedding of the Year 

Dear Diary,

It's been a while but i have news, he proposed, he proposed finally!!!  Who said you can’t get a proposal after four months of dating. Well look who’s got a ring and it’s so beautiful!!! Thank God I added some money to the amount he initially wanted to buy my ring for. This is 4.5 million Naira well spent, he  really wanted to give me a 500,000 Naira ring? Like me.. Nah not me… I love daddy he always comes through. See how the diamonds are shining like my destiny..Blind their eyes! Everyday i take a picture for IG to spoil someone's day. 

So aunty brought my aso-ebi over today I am so in love with the colours,  'Chocomilo brown and MTN yellow' and it’s like so affordable, N 284,000 for six yards….but people are still complaining o. Later they’ll claim big boy/girl and say people are not in their tax bracket but since I am a nice person I have decided to give those who can’t “afford” it the chance to win it on Linda Ikeji’s blog. You know help the needy and stuff like dad says i should every now and then.

Oh yeah, that’s how daddy’s friend came up with a cool idea,  that invitation should be strictly by fingerprint!  So everyone has to do the whole data capture thingie at the nearest access bank for that day, haha they think they have seen wedding to crash, that’s how Tiwa called me to tell me that she went to Access and they didn’t see her name .. haha.. when I asked everyone to sit for the test to qualify for the wedding what did she say ‘I am in London’ as if it’s not her mates that flew in from Australia just for it… I have sha told everyone to be careful because that girl is not above cutting someone’s finger to be there.

Oh i didn't gist you, gosh alot has happened...my pre-wedding pictures where on LIB and see I don’t really feel guilty that third mainland bridge was closed for my pre-wedding pictures because it was just for three days, didn’t they endure that for weeks when they were fixing third mainland… the comments on Linda Ikeji's blog don’t phase me….i will just do one competition for one person to win all access pass to the wedding and everyone will shut up..as if they won’t still be the ones uuuhing and ahhhing when my wedding pictures drop.  The carnival on the bridge theme really popped… thank God daddy was able to fly in Rihanna last minute. Gosh she is bae af!!! We took so many selfies… Instagram will shake tomorrow.

Can you believe it’s just three weeks away? Three weeks…  Eko hotel is just perfect even though we are inviting only 300 guests. Maybe we can do a live streaming and people can pay to watch..hmmmn I’ll ask uncle about it… so Drake is confirmed, Bono said he couldn’t make it …sigh. Coldplay is definitely going to be there, Rihanna and there was one last person. Oh yeah M.J ‘s hologram. How cool is that?  This is going to be the event of the year…wedding of the year I mean.. I can’t wait.

It's not all been rosy though some people keep trying to get me angry, one of my bridesmaids just sent me a text that she's dropping out, hiss… that friendship is definitely over, she said she can’t keep up with the expenses, you would think I told her to drop 1 million oh.. 600k  and she’s shouting...anyways I am already starting nationwide auditions for someone to take her place. This is a setback i don't need right now.

Boo is calling me, I have told him not to call me from 8am - 8pm only from 9 – 9:30 pm he doesn’t listen… he’s now calling me with his driver’s phone as if I don’t have true caller. I don’t want to get angry. I need my space, he should not choke me oh. Is this how it’ll be when we get married? I'll have to talk to daddy about separate houses for both of us.  

 Anyways I have to stop here..  It’s time for my ugwu facials.. this face has to be ready for the big day. Can’t wait to gist you about the in laws. 3 ha1ta2 ha3sa ma5ma

They say when you meet THE ONE, you'll know it. Maybe I've watched too many Ally McBeal
episodes but i sometimes imagine i am walking down a busy road,  a car stops and out comes this
dashing young man ... YES i just used the word 'dashing'  i shall now proceed to kill

So yeah this young man who's 6'1, no 6'4 ... jumps out of the car and suddenly breaks into

dance *cue background music* 'Walking on Sunshine Starts plays' ... the butterflies in my

tummy start doing synchronized steps to the beat of the music... two okada men, one conductor

and a lastma official join him in his dance routine like it's oh so normal.

It's all so indian-movie-esque and then he says 'Oh Laide where have you been, i've been

searching for you all my life' then i faint spanish soap opera style, hand on forehead and he

rushes to catch me before i fall into the gutter.

I'd wake up in his lavish pent house, okay house in Ogudu... and i'd be all scared and shit

till i see his face and then i remember - The ONE.... awww!! 'Cue Music - Cheesy Nigerian music

about love plays'

It'd feel so perfect and ordained by God..its exactly the way those drake picture quotes

said it'd be...we'd have identical awww inducing names 'lamide' and 'laide'... the perfect

wedding hashtag #lala2016 ..these things are important when choosing a partner you know...

nobody will hashtag ur wedding if his name is Arochukwu .. aint nobody gat time for that.. back


I wouldn't need convincing, we'd skip courtship ..oh wow! 'Courtship' i'm really showing my age.

we'd skip the getting to know each other serenre.. feels like we've known each other for years,

all our lives have been preparing us for that one moment when we met in Balogun and he jumped

out of his car to rescue me from falling into the gutter. 'Cue Music - We found Love in a

hopeless place plays'

We'd wear matching Aso-ebi's to weddings and hold hands as we walk out of Sunday service. Oh

praise be to the Lord! Our instagram pictures would never get less than 300 likes with comments

like ' I go love oh' #Goals, Relationship Goals, Relationship on fleek!!!'

All those i cant wash a woman's underwear days are left behind... that's all he thinks about at

work...the only thing that keeps him happy while he drives home in third mainland traffic..the

fact that hes coming home to wash the underwear of his queen. What an honour!

So this is real love i'd find myself thinking, all the while i've been wasting my time with

satan's helpers thinking i was in love not knowing that THE ONE was out there. Gone are the

days when breakfast in bed was thrown across the room to you.. in form of agege bread

with two measly akara's in it swiftly followed by the loud thud of the pure water.

No more excuses of I've been busy that's why i couldn't call every hour  to check up on you.

Its strange cause almost every time i think about him he calls, every single time..its almost

like our minds are connected..its like i'm Jean Grey and he's Professor Xavier... see he just

called now ...wow! this is amazing.

We'd have really intellectually stimulating conversations and matching wit. ...and even though we might not have alot of money... we have love.

That how it is right? Right? Somebody answer me!!!!

Anonymous Thoughts - What is Your Biggest Struggle in Life Right Now?

Took a little Hiatus but i'm back with 'Anonymous Thoughts'.

We are all going through one thing or the other in our lives, no matter how much we laugh, smile and have fun, but that's just the great thing about it..that we are still able to do all those things despite our different struggles.

Thanks to everyone that responded....Enjoy!
