And the winner issss..............

'Ello Baes.....

This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but the contestants made things difficult for me, so i got tired and confused. I just brought myself to compile the results right now, and it wasn't still as straightforward as i would have liked it to be.....i had to add a twist to would see how that happened below...

Ladies, the instructions were very clear " No multiple entries. Follow me on any of my social networks , mention the particular social network and your handle. Tell us what you love about christmas, your name and email address". ..... and i even gave an example:

"I love Christmas because it's so festive, and i get to reunite with all my cousins and family again. Giselle Ezeh. I'm following you on twitter, and my handle is @gigiez"

So why did i have to disqualify 11 entries?!! *very sad face*

Ok, i'll tell you why....

December! Christmas!! Hamarttan!!!

'Elloooooou'....eeeeeeees me.......

How have you been?

Have you read my feature on 'Wives Connection' blog? Click to visit the blog and read it all up.

So, few days ago, we welcomed what i consider to be the worst weather of the year *my opinion though*...oh how i detest hamarttan! My nose is dry so breathing is kinda painful, my lips frequently get dry despite constant moisturizing, and my eyes sting because of the harsh wind.

To make matters worse, my house is situated on the main-road so everywhere is constantly covered with dust! I clean everyday, and it doesn't matter if i clean 5 times a day...the dust still settles on all surfaces and annoys the shit out of me! I keep all doors and windows shut, and lately, i started stuffing underneath the doors with newspapers and cloth pieces...still the dust still manages to creep in and settle.

Right now, i'm battling sore-throat and all that comes with it....but on the bright side, i'm excited that it's almost Christmas! *Yippieeeee!*. Tomorrow, i would start setting up my christmas decorations and everything....put the family in that 'Christmas-ey mood'.

Oh, and of course there would be a chrismas giveaway right here! If you've been missing out on giveaways on the blog, try not to miss this one.

Alright dears, thought i should just pop in and say 'hi'.

Have a good night.....
