So as you know, it was my birthday Tuesday (I think the world knew about it cos I went on and on about it LOL) It was a great day and it felt good being in a totally different city, which I think I’m falling in love with BTW. Anyways so Thursday I went to a spa in the city, and it was a full pamper session. It cost ALOT of Zibby's hard earned money ( I did pay less than the actual price -I’m a bargain hunter and I never pay full price) for a full session – relaxing massage, complete facial, sauna steam session and a pedicure.
Some parts of the massage got a bit painful hahaha and there was a part of the facial that REALLY hurt. I guess i have VERY low tolerance to pain. I felt like a queen, not cold like queen Elizabeth, more like Nefertiti or Cleopatra. And the music playing in the background was from Westlife - cheesy but enjoyable and I’m almost embarrassed to admit, I knew ALL the lyrics. I’m claustrophobic so I was a bit scared of going into the sauna, but the girls were lovely and i decided to suck it up and get in. Glad I did it, cos it felt so nice. I can see why the Dane and Viking warriors loved Saunas (I’m pretty certain theirs were much hotter than what I got into tho, LOL)
The pedicure was the last procedure and when I was done, I gave a modest tip to the ladies and went on my way! I felt relaxed and pampered, it was well worth it. However I wish I got offered a glass of wine, juice or even water – I mean after all that cash plus the heat in the sauna, I definitely deserved it. Or at least that should have served as payment for the free Westlife karaoke I did for the staff.
I’ve done acupuncture and I’ve even done a garra rufa fish pedicure (yep, the one where the live fish eat your feet) and no I didn’t get them done in Nigeria. I should blog about that soemtime.
My first weekend in the city and I went out last night to capture the essence of this city! Lets say i came back home, fell asleep with a smile and woke up with a bigger smile LOL.
Can you guess what city I’m in? #ZibTip to help you guess...Its FAST!
PS: Did i tell you about our brand new spin off shows? You'll love it! More info coming soon

It’s a beautiful Thursday morning and like I like to call it #TrendyThursday.
When you think of the word trend, you kind of think of fashion, in style etc, well it is partly true. Trends could however be applied to politics, culture, business even science. And now thanks to social media trends are now universally recognized as part of Twitter!
For about a month, a trending issue has been the sad case of over 300 girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Nigeria by a bunch of criminals whom I would not give the dignity of being named on this blog. We are still unsure of how many girls are exactly missing or how many escaped, but what we demand for is the Nigerian government to rescue the girls and bring them back home to their families.
A lot of people have taken to the streets and social media to demand for their release. We are also demanding that the government crush and exterminate these criminals as well as name, shame and prosecute their sponsors.
A trend has been the pictures of individuals holding boards with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls We are grateful for the awareness generated and the international community for their pressure on the Nigerian government, which if I may add took 3 weeks to acknowledge this terrible incident. Countless innocent citizens have lost their lives and we stand together to condemn the acts of violence and pray for the girls to be brought back home safe and sound.
Ibiene has been a part of the campaign to bring our girls home, in addition to constantly raising awareness for the Nyanya blast victims. She is a published author and poet and a genuinely lovely girl. To learn more about her work, pls follow her on twitter @iamibiene
My song for the day is from Michael Jackson and its entitled “The Lost Children”. It’s a dedication to our girls and hoping for their speedy safe return home.
