Diary Of A SHoe Lover S2 Episode 7 – In His Time He Makes All Things Beautiful!!

Read Episode 6 here “Go Ai, go Ai, go Ai” I screamed at the top of my voice, attempting to compete with the booming sounds from the Bangs and Olusfen speakers in my living room. Wizkid’s Daddy Yo was playing and Aishat was giving us out of this world steps. It felt like our University years again. How I missed those days so much, when all we worried about were boys, making good grades and wearing the best clothes. *sigh* Tonight it was all about Aishat, her journey to being Mrs Timehin Bob Egbe was in full gear and we were going all into it. The family introduction had taken place about 2months after the proposal. We had all gone to the north, to Kano, Aishat’s home town. You would never believe the kind of wealth she was born into. Her father’s mansion was like a city on its own. I mean it was big enough to comfortably accommodate all of us that went with her. It was so much fun and we stayed a few extra days to see enough of the city before we headed back to Lagos. Now this was part two, her bridal shower, almost another 2months after the introduction. The traditional marriage was coming up in the next 2 weeks and the pre-wedding dinner and finally the white wedding the week after. The running around had been such a task. With Ivie nursing Osagie, I was left to do most of the work. She came back to Nigeria as soon as he clocked 3months, so she had missed the introduction. We had been planning...

Diary Of A Shoe Lover – Episode 1 – My Shoe Addiction

Dear Diary, I had a good day today. Work happened smoothly, i turned in the project report just in time to meet up with my deadline. Mr Deinde commended me, yes the Mr Deinde. On my way home, i passed by Sole Divas Store sha… *Sigh*, i know i promised not to buy any shoes till March, but the shoes on display, Lord have mercy, the perfect  color and the price was just right. I couldn’t resist jo, besides how would i reward myself for my hard work. i even think i may get a raise, so that will compensate. Anyway, that was the highlight of my day. Let me go and try on my new shoes, i must rock them tomorrow biko. Good night! My name is Salewa Oni and i am a hopeless, irredeemable shoe lover. When i left home for work this morning, I had exactly 253 pairs of shoes. My latest Kurt Geiger bow pumps now brings the count to 254 pairs. Welcome to my world. Fetish, addiction, curse whatever you choose to call it, i cannot stop buying shoes. I want to have them in every color, style, fabric, heel height available to buy. It doesn’t help that i am a size 39 – the perfect size, almost always in stock. My immediate boss, Mrs Odidison said to me the other day, when i wore my River Island slingback sandals, that she noticed it was the first time i will be repeating any of my shoes since i moved to her department two months ago. Well, she’s not so far from the truth. I always look out...
