Surf's up!!

This is for those of you who keep complaining that there's nothing to do in Ghana.
Apparently there is a surf school in Ghana! I bet you didn't expect that.

Maybe you've always dreamed of wearing a wet your fave celeb or 90210 character...
Kim Kardashian in a wetsuit.

Or maybe you're always looking for some fun and excitement or a new experience, this definitely looks like it!!
Check out their website and try something new:

Bayla Trap

I love the beat of this song. I'm always being 'oh'-ed for liking this song.
[maybe it's because a 'bayla' is essentially a large rat] but *shrug*
This video came out pretty quickly. t happens to be Sarkodie's first song after the infamous #IrishCream gaffe so he definitely wanted to make a statement.
But...umm....what's up with Paedae in the fur trapper hat though? 0__o
I love winter fashion too but Ghana is HOTTTTT!! ebei.

Time lapse

I haven't blogged in sOOOOo long!! I cannot believe that I have written a post since September! and I obviously don't know how to use the auto-publish feature as the few posts that I had lined up are nowhere to be found,lol [epic fail]. Where did the time go????
It started innocently enough: I was busy getting stressed about job interviews and my call to the Ghana bar. Right after the call I started work at a law firm, so I have been very busy. But I don't know where the days went. I hadn't yet  [still haven't]'acclimatized' to waking up, going to  AND STAYING at work on a daily basis [classes are much easier to ditch *sigh* lol]. I have been coming home and crumbling right into bed and not doing much else. No blogging, not much baking, no shopping. I now understand how work takes over your life!
It's really shocking how time flies. I'm going to be forced to do a lot of retrospective blogging...bear wit me please. I'll complete the posts that I started and didn't finish. I was challenged to keep a style diary when I started working [I have even more respect for fashion bloggers now, it is no joke]. I will badger you to respect your civic responsibility and vote on the 7th of December!!

You'll forgive me won't you? :D

Stop Looking Like a Fool With Facebook Law for Idiots

If you have seen the legal declarations making the rounds on Facebook you'll probably find this hilarious.
If you put one up yourself, however, you might feel a little silly...maybe a little sheepish after watching this:

Alexis Sclamberg: This Is Not Bragging

Are you an entrepreneur or a creative person or just someone starting out on a new path...then end up feel like you have nothing to show for it and may have made a huge mistake??

Alexis Sclamberg: This Is Not Bragging:

'via Blog this'

Do you know that feeling you get when you just can't wait to tell the world about your latest achievement? So you can prove yourself to everyone -- especially the naysayers?
This isn't bragging I'm talking about, it's quite the opposite. It's the kind of showing off reserved only for validation and worthiness. It's an entirely different beast.
Last weekend, a fellow lawyer-turned-writer friend of mine was telling me a story about this very feeling. She had moved to San Francisco from Washington, D.C. -- she left her corporate law job out East to pursue her dream of writing out West. Like some of my old friends, her friends and family were wondering if she was slightly unhinged -- leaving behind so much money, prestige, and success to start from scratch, without any guarantee that she would make it.
My friend moved to San Francisco in September and had planned a trip back East in the winter to visit her nearest and dearest. When December rolled around, my friend freaked out and considered pushing back her visit.
"I couldn't face everyone," she told me, "because I hadn't done anything yet. What was I going to tell them I had accomplished? I had nothing to show for myself."
But from what my friend described about her first months in San Francisco, it was clear to me that she had plenty to show for herself. She had been pounding the pavement, supporting herself doing only work she loved, believing in herself, and generally transforming her life from a depressing daily drag to an exciting adventure. She was going for it, big time.
And yet she felt she embarrassed, ashamed, and not good enough.
Because she didn't have those external markers of worthiness -- she didn't have an article published in a glossy magazine yet or a byline in some fancy newspaper -- she felt like she wasn't enough.
I've felt that same way. And if I'm being honest with myself -- and I guess, with you -- I deal with that feeling somewhat regularly.
Whether you've left socially-sanctioned success behind to do something else or have yet to achieve that kind of success at all, you're probably dealing with the same demons as the rest of us; the ones that are screaming bloody murder for you to win those trophies that will bring you validation from the outside world (particularly from the judgemental family, family friends and (ex) co-workers lurking in your life).
But here's the bottom line -- and I'm attempting to take my own advice on this one: The only person you have to prove 

anything to is yourself. And what you 

have to prove is this: you are worthy 

right now. You are enough, just as you

There isn't a title or a job or a byline or a weight or a marital status that will make you good enough. You are good enough right now. Plenty worthy of love and praise and acceptance and celebration.
How does that feel?
When you start believing that you are worthy, it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. And then you can take that trip to the East Coast even though you don't have a fancy byline yet or face your judgmental family with pride over Thanksgiving, despite the fact that your life doesn't fit squarely in their box marked "success."
Frankly, the people that don't think you're good enough just as you are right now will probably be impossible to please no matter how many gold medals you hang around your neck. These are the kind of people who will always look ahead at all the things you haven't yet done rather than celebrate the amazing person you are right now.
Though some people may say that the need to "prove yourself" is a great motivator -- a fantastic way to get you from point A (where you are now) to point B (where you'd very much like to be) -- I think they're completely off-base. It is simply the wrong fuel.
I would bet that the enthusiasm you have for making it to that proverbial point B is quite enough to propel you forward. It's the pure, heart-centered, Supreme type of ammunition. The energy you get from seeking approval, on the other hand, is tainted -- with shame, embarrassment and unworthiness. That can never be good.
So try this out. For a day -- or an hour, or a minute if it's feeling difficult -- just accept yourself for who you are and where you are, right now. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and picture yourself delightfully satisfied. If you soak in that feeling long enough, you'll start to believe it. And then you can go for the gold on your own terms, for the right reasons. And enjoy your road to victory -- one step at a time.

Ghana Gangnam Style

Since Gangnam style came out of no where about 4 months ago it has taken the world by storm. Psy has destooled Ban Ki-Moon as the most famous North Korean. With more views than anything else on Youtube [Lady Gaga and Beliebers are weeping] this video stands in it's own compound, forget class.

There are millions of Gangnam style spoofs, covers and versions, with some getting millions of views as well! in Ghana, Xigi is determined not to be left out of the fun...

If you're curious about what Gangnam style means:

It roughly means something like 'Your man has Gangnam Style.' 'Oppa,' which literally means 'older brother,' is an affectionate term girls use to address older guy friends or a boyfriend. It can also be used as a first-person pronoun, as PSY does here — in this case, he's telling a woman that he has Gangnam style.
Kevin Mazur/WireImage Getting on that high horse. Korean rapper Psy shows his signature move, which he calls the “horse-riding dance.”
