16 Things To Do Before You Turn 40


I wrote a post 19 Things To Do Before You Turn 25 and promised to write another for those past 25, well... here it is, the things we are supposed to do before we turn the big 40.

We all know the saying that life begins at 40, at this age  you are really sure of what you really want. Turning 40 is a time to reflect on some accomplishment, the family you have built and the wonderful friends that stayed, this age is a relief, it is not scary at all, and if you think at this that age that you are old then you are wrong because you still have a long way to go. Let's see the things to do before we turn 40: 
  1. First and foremost be the best parent, sister, friend, brother, child, aunt or uncle.
  2. Learn a second language and be fluent in it.
  3. Call or write a letter to 5 people who shaped you into the wonderful being you are.
  4. Donate blood. (for those who have never donated one before).
  5. Conquer your fear.
  6. Write a short story.
  7. Swim with dolphins (this is a must for me).
  8. Buy a Porsche ( it is good to dream) 
  9. Get a painting of yourself.
  10. Do something wonderful for your parents.
  11. Donate to charity.
  12. Treat yourself to an expensive accessory like a rolex or a chanel  bag. 
  13. Eat something you have never eaten before.
  14. Spend a night at the beach ( not alone tho).
  15. Treat yourself to an expensive wine and dinner (yes please). 
  16. And lastly, be more spiritual, you should embrace whatever religion you belong to and obey every commandment, yes it is important. 
Yeah that's all about it, you can add to the list if you want to, so whether you turning 40 next year, few years time or this year you are never too old to pull off anything, you can still be fabulous at 40. 

I hope this article was helpful.......:)

Review: Virony Sanitary Pad

I used Virony for the first time yesterday and I ain't looking back. Few weeks ago, my friends told me about Virony pad which I was scared to get at first because of my fear of switching sanitary pads but the reviews and praises I got about it made me change my mind. Well, here I am too, dropping my praises about Virony.

A New Chapter Of My Life

It's the first day of May and I want to say that I am really grateful about how good 2018 has been to me so far, being alive, my friends, the health of my family and I want to also use this opportunity to wish you all a very successful month full of accomplishments. 🍾

So y'all...... I got a new job with a popular radio station as a music editor and I'm really ecstatic. It's been a different experience, changing my environment, having the opportunity to meet new, smart people and celebrities, emphasis on "celebrities" this in particular has been wonderfuuuuul. 😎

It's one thing to get a job and its another to get a job you love! Me, I got both and everyday I am thankful to God for such grace and favour, it wasn't easy, I cried myself to sleep and went on my knees asking what I wasn't doing right and why my friends were getting jobs before me. Thank God it's over now and I look forward to making the most of this experience and milk every oppor…

Self Esteem and Learning to Love my Nose

There was little I loved about myself while growing up. I was 16 when I noticed I was very skinny, had a big nose and battling with bad acne and pimples. I was assured it was puberty hence the acne but I was worried about the nose; I hated it for a long time, it was big, flat and out of shape or so I thought. Back in secondary school I would pinch my nose for a long time, hopefully it would have a better shape. I had beautiful friends in school back then and I would spend most of my time pointing out what face feature I liked and wished I had.

During my university days, pouting was my saving grace. I would either pout or give a very big smile just to make my nose look smaller. I relied on people to give me a good validation about my looks and pictures which is really sad as I think about it now. I really feel sorry that we live in a world where there is a definition of a woman's beauty. For three years I have learnt to love my big nose, not because I was forced to or didn't h…
