It was about 6.30pm on a Wednesday evening, I was on a packed train from Oxford circus just trying to survive the rush hour of sweaty pits and bacteria so big you could kill them like mosquitos by slapping your palms together. It was a regular ole evening with regular ole passengers until suddenly the crowd started to part like the Red sea. A beautiful, slim, brown skin girl with thick curly hair walks in with such aura and confidence that I had immediate self esteem issues and my negative self (lets call her Halle Berry) started talking to my real self (call this one Beyonce) and it went a bit like this Halle Berry: When I told you not to eat calories today you thought I was joking Beyoncé: *praying against 3000 calories borrowed from the next week* Halle Berry: See yourself? Unrepentant beesh ? Back to the train. I realised one of the reasons why the crowd parted for her was because she was like a goddess that graced us mere mortals with her presence on the Victoria line and partly because she had three big bags of Ann Summers and Victoria secret. Now things began to make sense to me, this goddess had an active sex life and wasn't afraid to show it. I got thinking about underwear. How many of you in long term relationships now see underwear as a basic human right not something for your other half to get some enjoyment from. When I go to the shop to purchase underwear, I give it the most vigorous stretch test that even a 500 year old Egyptian mummy would be so proud of my attention to detail of elasticity. I want to know if it will stand the test of time. I talk to the underwear, telling them of the "Family 5 year plan" (you are part of us now forever so I need to do my due diligence). I spend hours looking at reviews of the newest most comfortable bras with air lite technology but bras like that look like they were designed by the Church of Seventh day adventists. Why does it have to be so? Why cant we have comfort and sexy? Or Why can't I be the one who does underwear shopping like it is a hobby not a chore? Pick out pieces for an Egyptian princess not a mummy? Choose style over comfort and strut with the bags on the tube unapologetically. I really don't have the answers, I may have to get back to you on this one because I was rudely interrupted by the sale alarm I put online for "the it bra for mums sold over 200 in Madagascar alone" sigh. That day after the train goddess encounter I got so triggered that I went online for a good ole shopping experience for underwear, one I have never embarked on before but firmly shut my laptop because I just couldnt go through with it. I need comfort too so I am on a mission to find a brand that does both and subsequently boost their profits by 25%. If you know of this mythical brand please let me know, I don't want a repeat of walking PAST Victoria Secret with hubby where he pushed me inside so hard that I got severe whiplash and a concussion ?. Help me pipo I need to find that brand. Please comment below. About this outfit I saw these boots at public desire in March/April this year. I had seen the Balenciaga version and thought no difference, I will get them. Two days Later, sold out! I couldn't believe my eyes. I cried (there was some wailing too), then I opened the bible to give me verses on strength. I was on the phone to public desire and was put on a waiting list (when you are not Chanel or Hermes) but you are affordable so God is good all the time ?. Finally in August I got a shipment, I passed out when I saw the long package and knew exactly what it was. Unfortunately these are sold out so you can get an alternative here Blazer- Hubbys closet ?

I started out writing a post about a young lady I saw in a video on Facebook who was telling her story of being with a man for 10 years, he was never "ready" for marriage. She left him and he gets married within a year. She was obviously crushed and her whole life and self confidence crumbled right before her eyes. I was thinking how did she miss the signs? How did she become blind to his bluff? How did this happen to her for so long and she didn't have the guts to end it earlier. Then Kevin Hart happens ?. As I mentioned before, I love celebrity news and all, nothing passes me by but that's not what my blog is about so I never focus on that. Today my lovelies I have a thing or two to say so why don't you sit back and relax because this is a fast and bumpy ride ???. Celebrity MEN and their infidelities is nothing new, it's so normal that saintly men like Steph Curry are like rare cuts of 55 carat pink diamonds, hard to find and impossible to purchase. Many many celebrities A list to Z list have have had scandals. Snoops wife once said she had to phone women she knew were side chics to find out when her husband was coming home after being absent for weeks on end. Tiger Wood, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Jay-Z, Tony Parker, Arny Schwarzenegger and even Marilyn Manson cheated, yes he did, this nicca cheated on Dita Von Teese. This person Cheated on Dita yano? These stories touch and affect us differently. The varying impact celebrity cheating scandals have on us mere mortals is based on who is being cheated on. When Beyonce sang about a so called Becky that Jay cheated on her with, my first reaction was "where Becky at? I want to fight that b*tch, I want to snatch her edges so bad that Bey would change the lyrics to her song to "Becky with the Mohawk ". Gurl, I was mad, I didn't want to hear that Jay-Z's stupid voice with his baby duck like laughter. Bey and I were in this together and we were going to ride the storm no matter what ?. Another one I felt angry about was Common and Serena Williams, I was so happy when she bagged herself a new man "chop knuckle ", you did well sis, I have seen Alex Ohanian and if he does anything to hurt ma boo, I know I can take him, I have a bottle and I am not afraid to use it (after I have drank the contents ofcourse). While the victims usually women try to heal and cope, it seems like the men are out there profiteering from their infidelities in the form of tours and hit albums carrying on with their lives. If you wanna leave then do that, there is someone in the wings to take your space like the way Eniko (former instigator and current victim ) slid into Wife position after being side piece for years. How do we not learn as women please. This doesn't fail to happen, you will go out the same way you came in. But women out there healing like wolverine because your man is famous or rich, good on you, you know your priorities and you know what you want in life. Those of you taking this from broke men, you will surely make heaven because you have a heart of gold, you are a direct disciple of the Lawd and your mansion awaits you in heaven ?. Everyone for their own. I hope we have the strength and wisdom to handle such cases if it falls on our laps.
