I'm slowly transitioning from a cleavage bearing, alcohol sipping Muslim woman to a full-time hijabi. Where do I start from? I've always wanted to be a hijabi but I didn't have the courage to do it, I admired Muslim women in their scarves and hijab, I gave it a go in Uni, tied a turban for a few weeks and I got bored and ditched it. Told myself I will pick it up when I get married, I still need enough time to flaunt my locs, bare my chest and wear dresses with slits going above my knees. I enjoyed sipping cocktails, drinking champagne and mostly Jack Daniels and coke, I quit alcohol a few times, the longest I went without alcohol was 12 months. I'm not an alcoholic, I go months without drinking on the regs,. especially when I'm in Dublin, but I need booze to survive in Lagos. A few shots once I get home from the airport, then Star Radler or Snapp before noon, this continues until I leave the city. My motto was " I can't be sober in Lagos".
Hi Guys, I'm officially in my late twenties, well late twenties start at 26, I'm counting from 27 because that's 3 years from 30 and 3 years is a long time. I am a day older, my 27th birthday was yesterday the 1st of December. I was expecting sadness, I had it all planned in my head, get a hotel, a bottle of Prosecco, some Chinese and sushi have a lovely bubble bath, pray and cry myself to sleep. Unfortunately, thing's did not go as planned and I'm not mad at it.
