My 11 ‘Secrets’
  • I’m absolutely crazy about Beyonce… It’s almost unhealthy. She just inspires me so much. #BeyHive
  • I’m going to marry Ian Somerhalder one day… one day…
  • My favorite movie is Steve Harvey’s Think Like A Man and I cannot wait for the sequel to come out this year!
  •  I am an Amercian-born Nigerian. I was born in Dallas, Texas. I’m proud to be Nigerian/African and I express that in any way I can through my blog eg my excessive love for ankara material. Africa isn’t solely a continent with poor starving kids and I feel the negative aspects are publicized more than the positive which sucks.
  • I attend Duke University (It’s awesomeeeeeeeee!)
  • I absolutely love French language and culture. I’ve studied it for over 7 years and intend to continue doing so here in college.
  • God’s grace, I’d like to become a doctor specifically a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. 
  • I could talk about anything skin or beauty or self-care related all day if you left me or care to listen
  • I don’t like weaves. I have nothing against those who do but it’s just not my style. I tried weaves once but I couldn’t stand it and took it out after a week. Maybe I’ll change, maybe not. 
  • My friends call me Lizard (gotten from Lisa… don’t ask how cause I don’t know either), Hairy and Bushy (I’m really hairy, it’s not funny)
  • I have conversations and debates with myself. It’s really fun, you should try it sometime.
Tiff’s Questions
1.How old are you? 
I’m 17 turning 18 on the 28th of March
2. Why did you decide to create a blog?
I created this blog because I wanted to showcase the beauty of Nigerian/African culture but I can’t say that’s all I talk about. I also talk about things that have to do with college and anything self-care. Let’s just say a lot of things.

The Vampire Diaries (Team Damon), The Originals, Reign and America’s Next Top Model and the list goes on

7. Tell us one of your fondest memories?
Not to be cheesy but it was when I got my acceptance letter into Duke. I didn’t know my tear ducts had such stamina.
