After Valentine what Next?

Hey People, thanks for visiting here today. So I ask myself a lot of questions most of the time and one of them this period was After Valentine what next? Don’t get this the wrong way my friends, I celebrate and believe in Val but the whole buzz about it makes me wonder what happens after February 14th.


I had much fun yesterday shooting on Valentine day. it gave me a whole new perspective about Valentine and you can see it reflected in my different poses. I call it self-love. You can’t give what you don’t have. Isn’t that true? As days glide by, I love and truly appreciate the woman I have grown into, not forgetting mistakes made in the past, but learning from them and moulding my life to be a source of inspiration to many someday




A lot must have happened on valentine’s day. For some, the day ended on a high note while for others, it didn’t. But for whichever class you belong to, I ask you- After Valentine what next? Are we going back to showing deceitful love to our partners? friends?colleagues? Name them… We must not relent in loving our spouses, family, friends, colleagues etc. and even those that hurt us. It should be a constant practice. You remember the song by Onyeka Onwenu that says “one love…keep us together (google to hear this piece if you haven’t heard it before… You would love it)



ValentineGrowing up, I had a mug encrypted “Love is what you get when you give”. I would always want to drink from that mug… I treated it so special. Now that I’m grown that tag is beginning to make sense to me. Love is what you get when you give




Love is Patient, Love is kind, Love is not selfish, Love is forgiving, Love is what you get when you give, Love is you, Love is all of us.

Let’s keep showing love to one another… That is what it should be before and after valentine.


Much love from me

What I’m wearing: Dress from Asos(sold out) Find similar ( here and here) I love this here Sandals from Barrots (very old) but I love this here

    Mel, this surely is a beautiful piece only that you got me twisting my neck just so that I can see and appreciate your beautiful collections of photographs.
    For me, and over the years I have come to understand that LOVE is and shouldn’t be limited to be celebrated on just a single day, but to be shown, given and extended to all at every available opportunity, every moment we come across people who needs to be loved,that way, we get back being appreciated and loved too. Remember, it’s so good loving and being loved in return.
    thanks as always and continue being you!!!

      Ohh thanks for visiting here and commenting Folli. My apologies on the neck twisting part. I think it depends on which device you use viewing the website. Working on fixing that as soon as possible. Cheers
