Look what I got!

This was written around 3:00pm

It’s a beautiful Monday afternoon. I got out of bed at the decadent hour of noon and I just finished eating brunch. Omawumi is playing in the background and I’m just chilling.

Oh, maybe I should mention that I just received the Omawumi cd about 30 minutes ago?

Yup, I just got a package from Nigeria and I’m feeling pretty darn blessed right now. Check out my bounty:

First, there’s the cd, that was sent to me because the giver loves Omawumi (and I am loving it!):


Second, there’s the clutch that I won last year. It’s even more lovely in person:


And finally…last but not least is the Mildred Bag:


One view is just not enough:


Everything is far more beautiful in person than any camera can capture. Once I post this I’m transferring all the contents of my old purse into Mildred.

Thank you, Amina of Gidan Nodza for your generosity! When I say that words can’t express my appreciation, I mean it. How did GNG get so blessed?

  8. Omawumi is cool; has this S.A overtones to her songs. I also recommend K'ore's ''Olorioko Again'' (the guy from Infinity; they did the hit ''Olorioko''); dude sings mostly yoruba, dont even understand half of what he's saying but i'm just loving it!
