Love Is Sweetest When You Just Love For The Joy Of Love

I prefer to love just for the joy of loving someone.
Whether we Be Intimate or not.
But many women are not mature and secure enough for this kind of love.

In many Nigerian relationships, you have to deal with the immaturity or insecurity of girlfriends.

Many of them even use sex as a sort of antidepressant.

A Nigerian lady I have known for long and engaged to a guy from my town confessed that she has had intimate flings whenever she quarreled with her man. And I am afraid that she is going to continue even in marriage.

Then the majority of the impressionable and vulnerable young women from poor families in Nigeria are promiscuous, because they need to collect money and other provisions from several guys to make ends meet in their desperation to get out of poverty.

Many of them live with very poor parents who have to share two small rooms with about six to eight children and in sordid environment that makes the poor girls stay out until night when they just return to share the bed, mat or settee with their siblings.

I have broken down at the pathetic sight of the squalor of some poor girls in the ghettos that I could not even drink their water. So, for poor girls, poverty prevents them from enjoying the pure experience of loving the guys they truly want to love freely.

They sometimes go on with the guys who can provide for them, but they later return to be with the poor guys they truly love.

They give their body to the guy with the finance, but their heart to the guy they love whether he has enough money or not.
It is when they are with the guy they love they really enjoy love.

There are still many Nigerian women, both young and old, who really and truly fall in love. But unfortunately, they fall into the wrong hands of those who are brutes and ingrates.

It is pathetic that majority of men cannot give money or other provisions to women without using them as exchange for sex.

It would be great if more men can be good real friends to women and provide for their needs even if the women refuse to sleep with them.

It is cheap to do things or give things to girls and ladies because you want them to date you.

Why not just do it for the kindness of love and not as a barter for a good time with women.

Fashion's Night Out is coming to Nigeria!

Kisses 'n' Roses is planning the first ever FASHION'S NIGHT OUT event in Nigeria that will make us join the global community of FASHION'S NIGHT OUT!

The following are the Frequently Asked Questions for your benefit.

Q: Can any retailer host an FNO event?

A: “Fashion’s Night Out” is a registered trademark and only retailers who have submitted applications through the FNO Web site and have been approved may officially refer to their festivities as “Fashion’s Night Out” events. To register see the Registration section below.

Q: What are the hours of FNO?

A: The official hours are 6 — 11 PM on September 8, 2011. You are more than welcome to host online and in-store events before and/or after that time period as well provided they are in line with the event's mission.

Q: Can I promote my daytime and after-hours events on

A: We encourage you to promote all of your FNO events on your own within the PR guidelines, however we will be able to promote only your events during the official hours on our website.

Q: Can I host a private event that is not open to the public?

A: The goal of this initiative is to encourage the public to celebrate and support the fashion community, so only events that are open for everyone to attend can be promoted as official FNO events.

Q: I am not a retailer. Can I host an FNO event?

A: Only retailer events will be listed on the FNO Web site, but if you are in the hospitality industry and would like to highlight a special promotion you are running in celebration of FNO, contact your local tourism/events offices to find out about local marketing opportunities. NYC business owners should contact NYC & Company to be included in their FNO NYC listings on Contact with any questions.

Q: Can I charge admission to my event?

A: No. As stated in the Terms & Conditions, FNO organizers cannot profit from the events by charging a participation fee, however the Fashion’s Night Out team acknowledges that the participating organization will be attempting to profit from the overall event by, for example, increasing sales of its products.

Q: I’m an e-tailer/retailer selling discounted and special-price merchandise. How can I participate in FNO?

A: The mission of Fashion’s Night Out is to support the fashion industry through the promotion of full-price merchandise, so we require that e-tailers and retailers with store locations who would like to participate in FNO keep this in mind when planning their events. In order for any e-tailer or retailer to participate in FNO, it must have a full-price online or in-store promotion available for customers on the day of FNO. Some suggestions on ways for special-price e-tailers or retailers to take part include creating a special FNO shop for the night with only full-price product (the product can include the official merchandise or a collection of special collaboration pieces created exclusively for FNO, etc).


Q: I am a retailer in the U.S. or Canada, but not in NYC. How can I be involved in FNO?

A: Retailers and designers from across the U.S. and Canada are invited to host events, but in order to legally use the “Fashion’s Night Out” name, events must be registered through the Web site for approval. In order to make sure your events meet the program’s criteria for approval, be sure to read the Terms & Conditions carefully.

Q: Is there a local contact organizing FNO in my city?

A: Registration for FNO is being centralized in New York City, however the New York offices are not able to oversee each city’s mobilization and organization efforts. We recommend that you check with your local officials or business district organizations to find out if your city has a contact overseeing FNO efforts in your area.

Q: Are my local representatives/organizers official FNO representatives?

A: No, only the New York City team works directly for Fashion’s Night Out, however your local contact will likely be a good source of information about events and other retailers involved in your area. If you have questions or concerns about your local contact, feel free to contact

Q: Why is there a fee for retailers outside NYC?

A: There is a one-time administrative fee of $250 per brand (which includes all store locations of that brand) to help cover costs associated with processing applications.

A: Unfortunately, only e-tailers or online retailers with existing e-commerce capabilities are allowed to register as online participant of FNO.

2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Katy Perry and Adele are Music's Leading Ladies at The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

With Three Moonmen a Piece With Perry's "Fireworks" Taking Home "Video Of The Year"

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2011

NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The ladies ruled the kingdom at the "2011 MTV Video Music Awards," broadcast live this evening from Nokia Theater L.A. Live, as Katy Perry and Adele each took home three VMA Moonmen and Lady Gaga two. Katy Perry won the biggest prize of the night, "Video of the Year," with her pop anthem, "Fireworks," as well as honors for "Best Collaboration" and "Best Special Effects" for "E.T." featuring Kanye West. Adding to her reign atop the album charts, Adele won VMAs for "Best Art Direction," "Best Cinematography," and "Best Editing." Genre and gender-defying Lady Gaga kicked off the night as her alter ego Joe Calderone with a show-stopping performance of "You and I," and later walked away with two VMAs for "Best Female" and this year's new category, "Best Video with a Message."

The most explosive moment of the night belonged to hip-hop heavyweights Kanye West and Jay-Z. The duo brought funk, flare and the fireworks to the VMA stage with the worldwide television debut performance of "Otis" from their global number one album, Watch The Throne. The kings of hip-hop playfully commandeered the VMA stage with their usual royal swagger through a steady bombastic beat of flames, smoke and pyrotechnics until the patriotic climax as they proudly stood in front of the red, white and blue of a gigantic American flag in a nod to the single's cover.

Another high-octane performance came courtesy of Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo and Nayer, who transformed the VMAs into a giant dance party with this summer's mega hit "Give Me Everything." The hip-hop trio brought Miami heat to the stage with 60 dancers and a laser light spectacle that brought down the house.

The show took a soulful turn with an unforgettable VMA debut from a hauntingly beautiful Adele who performed the heart-breaking "Someone Like You" with only a piano by her side and the glow of a single spotlight. Introduced by Katy Perry, Adele left the audience breathless as she treated them to one of the most powerful voices of a generation and they responded with a standing ovation.

Chris Brown delivered a show stopper with his high-flying aerial journey through VMA history. It was a visual feast as he flew from stage to stage while performing his smash dance hit "Yeah 3X" into Wu-tang Clan's "Protect Ya Neck" into Nirvana with "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and, finally, "Beautiful People."

An ogling Joe Calderone returned to the stage to present Britney Spears with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The two together then introduced Beyonce, who, before starting to sing "Love on Top," confirmed pregnancy rumors by saying "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." She ended the song by rubbing her belly to reveal her baby bump as a proud and expectant father Jay-Z received congratulations from the audience.

In the midst of performances from global superstar artists, the VMAs continued its legacy of introducing emerging talent. This year, the Awards show featured an explosive VMA debut from Young The Giant, who rocked and body surfed the audience with their hit "My Body," alongside a throng of screaming fans.

The emotional highpoint and poignant moment of the evening was the tribute to the late British songstress Amy Winehouse by the legendary Tony Bennett with a surprise introduction by actor Russell Brand. Bennett unveiled footage of Winehouse's final performance -- his recent recording session with her of their duet "Body and Soul" for his upcoming Duets II album. The tribute continued with Bruno Mars's triumphant performance of Winehouse's hit "Valerie." With his soaring vocals, horn section harmonies, and smooth and syncopated choreography, Mars and his band's performance was a joyous celebration of Winehouse's life and music.

The girls from the "Jersey Shore" presented the "Best Female Video Award" to Lady Gaga and, in an intergenerational twist, was joined by Academy Award®-winning actress Cloris Leachman, who joked that the audience shouldn't confuse her with Betty White.

Throughout the telecast British pop diva Jesse J commanded the House Artist stage as the VMA House Artist, keeping the crowd moving as she belted out her signature hits as well as a selection of other chart toppers.

Closing out the show, hip hop's hottest MC and entrepreneurial Young Money Millionaire, Lil Wayne, closed with the seductive "How to Love," before attacking the stage in full force as the band launched into a Black Sabbath riff and before ripping into "John" from his upcoming album, "The Carter IV," to be released digitally at midnight tonight.

Presenters at the "2011 MTV Video Music Awards" included Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Paul Rudd, Shaun White, Will Ferrell , Jack Black , Zoe Saldana , Kevin Hart and Victoria Justice join Jonah Hill , Rick Ross , Seth Rogen , Selena Gomez , Kim Kardashian , Odd Future, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Lautner , Drake, Joe Jonas and Jared Leto.

Every love affair has its seasons

Every love affair has its seasons

Photo of The Four Seasons of Love.

Every love affair has its seasons and like the four seasons each season has a different weather. And as the weather changes so changes the moods of your lover depending on the seasons and the times. Ignorance of the laws of the times and seasons is the cause of many ups and downs and mishaps in the romance of human existence.

Every season has a reason, from spring to summer and from autumn to winter.

The theme music of this article is the timeless Four Seasons of Love by Donna Summer.

Spring Affairaudio 8:30Four Seasons Of Love
Summer Feveraudio 8:04Four Seasons Of Love
Autumn Changesaudio 5:29Four Seasons Of Love
Winter Melodyaudio 6:28Four Seasons Of Love

If you take time to study and understand the seasons and their reasons, you will understand the moods of your lover and be forewarned to be able to help your lover to overcome the bad moods and use the good moods positively for your mutual benefit. But that depends on your choices.
Conducive moments or environments augur well for only those who know how to use it positively.

Haste makes waste

We waste many things when they are done in haste as nonsense overtakes commonsense in our actions simply caused by our ignorance or arrogance.

No Thought, No Act

In human relationship, there is no act without any thought.
You think first before you act, whether good or bad.
Before you act, think of the positive and negative consequences or repercussions of what you want to do to avoid making costly and terrible mistakes.

Think twice or even think thrice before you do it.
The more you think about the consequences and repercussions, the more you will gain in the end.

If you know that it is a bad season or time for it, then don’t do it.
No farmer plants in a bad weather when he or she knows that doing so will only end with a bad harvest of regrets.

It is only a stupid person that will ask his partner for an expensive thing when you know that your partner is under the weather. Like a foolish and selfish girlfriend asking for an expensive gift from her boyfriend when his sister is in critical condition in ER or when he has unstable or unhealthy cash flow. But unfortunately many Nigerian girlfriends who see a boyfriend as their cash cow don’t even know what a cash flow is.
If you doubt me, ask your Nigerian girlfriend to give you a good advice on how to manage your cash flow.
She would either give you a dumb look or frown.

Let me be honest here, communicating with many girlfriends or mistresses in Nigeria is DIFFICULT, because of their IGNORANCE. But the irony is instead of admitting their IGNORANCE, they go on parade with their “Egungun” masquerade of ARROGANCE posing and posturing to impress and lure their targets into their nets. They do a lot of baiting by displaying and portraying themselves as sex objects to trap the “Mugu Guys” in town.

As there are “Mugu Guys” there are also “Mugu Babes” in town. “Mugu Babes” are often intellectually retarded and they come cheaper than other girls.

You have to keep a weather eye on this particular species of Homo sapiens, because they have mood swings in every season as their moods change as the weather changes. Many of them are fair weather friends. And fair weather friends are worse than your sworn enemies, because the devil you know the evil he or she can do is safer than the demon disguised as an angel by your side.

If you find out that you are having an affair with any of the species I have identified above, just be blunt and tell them the truth or simply drop them without “Wahala” or palaver, because like locusts or cankerworms, they can destroy your harvest even in the best of moods, no matter the season or weather.

As we inch closer to the Christmas and New Year with every second, fair weather girlfriends and boyfriends are already making their wish list and perfecting their game plans and baits to go fishing. Therefore, you should not be caught unawares. Just keep a good weather eye on everyone.

Help! What should I wear!

New Fashion & Beauty Social Network Site Gives Friends a Place to Give and Get Advice liberates users to express their "only me" style instead of chasing the "me too" of fashion

Many more will have a virtual presence, using laptops and mobile devices to view and discuss the styles coming down the runway.

The Unspoken Melody of True Love

The Unspoken Melody of True Love

Those who pay only lip service and eye service, who cannot make sacrifices for true love, will never know the depth of the greatest source of life.
Those who do not have faith in true love will never realize the strength of the oath they have made in the solemn confession of “I love you” in their sacred communion of love as two separate bodies are entwined like Siamese twins as you make sweet love with every breath of passion in the rhapsody of your heart and soul.

Love Photo from MOTA.RU

The most precious moment is the most silent moment when not a single word is spoken in the unbroken melody of true love.
When no lies are told and when unspoken promises are sealed with a kiss.

For if we truly believe in love, there is nothing more we need to prove.
There may not be much to see, but in true love the least we have becomes the greatest.

For from one acorn sown the mighty oak tree has grown. So no matter what you are passing through and come what may come, you will still know that your beloved truly loves you even without uttering a word.

Now my love, my only true love.
No matter the circumstances of your birth and no matter the odds against you, promise yourself one guaranty that you must stay alive and well and you must succeed in life.

For what is the worth of your life on earth without the health and wealth of happiness and success?

Beware of the hypocrites and parasites, the fools who think they are wise in their conceit and continue to live in deceit in their denial and rebellion against the inevitable truth that conquers us all.

Lest I forget this timeless verse that is enough to see you through the journey of life.

“My little children let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in need and in truth.”
~ 1 John 3:18

For many of those who have sworn with heaven and earth in so many words have been found to be hypocrites and liars with forked tongues coated with the slime of the scum of the earth.

My love, my only love.
Our deepest and greatest feelings are the sweetest passions of the unwritten music of the unspoken melody of our true love.

Daffodils on the Anthills

Daffodils on the Anthills

I see daffodils growing on the anthills
The anthills of umuokoroala
Umuokoroala in the heart and soul of Umuahia
Umuahia the haven of Abia
Abia the land of Eyimba
Eyimba the great who tramples on daffodils
For we no longer want the white aliens to dance on our roofs
And watch them fart on our heads in mockery of our ancestors.

~ From the collection "Time After Time" by Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima, author of "Children of Heaven", "Scarlet Tears of London", "Bye, Bye Mugabe" and co-author of "Unclad Beauty".

Love does not ask for too much

If we truly believe in love
There is nothing much we need to prove
There may not be nothing much to see
But take me as you see me
No matter what we are passing through
I will always still love you.

It Is Pathetic To Fall In Love With Someone Who Does Not Love You

To me, it is really foolish and pathetic to fall in love with someone who does not love you and may never love you.

The Parable of the Sower of our Lord Jesus Christ is a good lesson to guide and guard us in the precarious journey of life.

Never waste your precious seeds and time sowing where they will not even germinate, talk less of growing.

Appreciate those who appreciate.

Go to where you are celebrated and not where you are loathed lest you would miserable.

The Parable of The Sower
Matt 13:3-23; Mk 4:2-20; Lk 8:4-15

# some fell along the road, and it was trampled under foot,

# and the birds of the sky devoured it. other seed fell on the rock, and as soon as it grew, it withered away,

# because it had no moisture. Other fell amid the thorns, and the thorns grew with it, and choked it.
# Other fell into the good ground, and grew, and brought forth fruit one hundred times."

Do not waste your time and money on unfruitful relationships and you will be better, healthier, richer and safer on earth.

If you follow this wise advice, you will never return to whine over your romantic misadventures with men or women.

True Friendship Or Relationship Truly Begins With Speaking The Truth

Honesty is still the best policy in every human relationship, whether Intimate, romantic or platonic, the best tonic for your relationship is still honesty.

Until you stop telling lies to yourself and others or living in denial of the truth, your relationship is FALSEHOOD.

You will find out later that you are not fooling anyone, but yourself.

So, my dear, CALL A SPADE A SPADE.
Call a sucker a sucker and call a dog a DOG.
And call a darling DARLING. Cheesy?

Don't try to flatter anyone to curry favour when at the end it would turn out sour.

When Omotola shared her Oranges with me

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde

We were on location on the Ikorodu Road in Lagos. It is a large workplace beside White Soul Autos.
Emeka Ike, Emeka Enyiocha, Segun Arinze, Ejike Asiegbu, Regina Askia and other Nollywood stars and wannabes were there. We were relaxing in-between rehearsals. She and Regina were the prettiest and sexiest there. She was eating oranges and there were others also eating or drinking. Then she walked over to where I was sitting and offered me one of her two oranges. I was not expecting it, because we were not that familiar even though we have seen each other at other auditions. I politely accepted her orange and thanked her. I ate it, but never chatted with her after this meeting, because I was not interested in her. She was only 17 then and I was in a relationship and my regular companion was a young amazon from Port Harcourt who never gave other girls a breathing space whenever she was on holidays in Lagos. A rich girl, smoking, drinking and clubbing and could drive any of their cars. And I slept at her place several times whenever her elder sisters traveled. With her around, there was no space for another girl. So, I never had time to befriend the young actress who shared her oranges with me before I left acting to face my regular office work as an IEC Program Officer all over Nigeria.

Today, she is celebrated as one of the sex symbols in Nollywood and a happily married wife and mother of lovely children. And I thank God for Mrs. Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde.

Actress Finally Speaks Out About Bullying in Hollywood

PR Newswire

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 19, 2011

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- After wrapping her new film "Spin", actress Nicole Crowther finally feels comfortable enough to respond to the firestorm that erupted from an innocent tweet that revealed the ending of the popular Prom episode of Fox's hit show 'Glee'.

'Glee' writer, producer and creator Brad Falchuk took to the offensive by Tweeting "@nicolecrowther Hope you're qualified to do something besides work in entertainment". [EDITOR'S NOTE: photo of tweet is available upon request]

Crowther says she never understood why this situation demanded this amount of attention. “I wasn’t even working on the show at the time. The tweet was simply a rumor.” Now she’s had time to reflect upon the consequences of her tweet on ‘Glee’ but believes it was used to spin even more interest in the last episode of the program. “I felt bullied, used, and tossed away. It is difficult...still...that Brad [Falchuk] had no remorse, or offered no help in stemming the tide of mean and frightening responses engendered by his actions. ”

"I feel Brad used the tweet as a publicity stunt. After all, how much damage could a tweet to 1,500 followers cause? Ratings shot up for the telecast and I received open fan threats and I almost lost my role in 'Spin'. Then on top of it all, ['Glee' Casting Director] Mike [Passine] said 'I will give you ONE more chance before I make sure you don't work background again.'" [EDITOR'S NOTE: photo of email is available upon request]

With a successful feature under her belt Crowther says she's finally emerged from the depression that nearly ended her career before it truly began. "I reopened my social media accounts and I'm going out on more auditions."

Crowther plans to take an activist role, "I am ready to deliver my anti-bullying message to people who have suffered a similar plight. In this day, it's not acceptable that people can get away with this type of character assassination."
