Hi! I’m Chioma, the girl behind the blog. Lists are much more fun than bios, so here’s a list of 20 interesting facts about myself:

  1. I love historically based movies (think Life is Beautiful or Hotel Rwanda).
  2. I got my first detention when I was four for pulling down my gym teacher’s shorts.
  3. I've yet to meet an oxford I don't like:)
  4. I’m obsessed with notebooks and school supplies in general.
  5. My laptop’s name is Macbeth.
  6. I think the person that came up with the fave red Starburst pack is a genius.
  7. I climbed more than 1000 flights of stairs the summer I spent in NYC.
  8. I was born and raised in South Carolina (G.R.I.T.S. for life!).
  9. I will always make time for a Criminal Minds marathon (post Gideon that is).
  10. I love long drives by myself to blast music, think out loud, laugh, and breathe.
  11. If I were a rapper my name would be C-Ice.
  12. When I'm by myself, I laugh like Fran from the Nanny but with more baritone.
  13. I'd rather get up early than stay up late.
  14. My last name means greater things are yet to come.
  15. When I was younger, I had to be bribed with candy to smile in pictures.
  16. I’m Nigerian with a BS in biology, a MPH, and no intention or desire of going to medical school; my parents have not disowned me yet.
  17. I really want to go to Comic-con to meet the cast of Psych (well that's not happening) and the cast of the Big Bang Theory.
  18. I think of the best jokes when no one is around.
  19. I take forever in dressing rooms.
  20. I take forever in dressing rooms because I’m taking pictures.
Proof of #20:)

All in all I try not to take myself too seriously. I think life is too short to be so tightly wound. Sometimes I fail miserably, but that’s a part of the journey. I find inspiration in music, fashion, my faith, sunny days, books, good food, and people. I want to do more things that scare me and starting this blog is one of them.

Questions…feel free to ask!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Such a great ABOUT ME, Chioma! :D Hahahhahaha #2 is too awesome....I can't believe you did that. And I'm just like you--my favorite types of films are more "serious" and historical because they can be so touching and intense, and almost always have great lessons behind them.

    1. Thank you!! I was a bit of a troublemaker as a child but I think I've mostly grown out of that lol.

  2. I don't believe for one second you were a troublemaker ! Great page chica!

    1. Haha thanks! And believe it! My mom and sisters could tell you some stories:)
