My experience at Gasparilla 2015!!


So I decided to go for one of the best festival this weekend and it was awesome. It is the only festival that allows drinking on the road (some wet zones), lots of shouting, lots of beads thrown by pirates. It was so much fun. Lots of jaw dropping dressed girls ( shorts were bum exposing) and I ran into this Harley Davidson bike.... AWESOME!!! I almost got on it, but I didn't.
So basically Gasparilla is a pirate festival that celebrates Jose Gapar who was a mythical Spanish pirate captain that operated in Southwest FL. Everyone in Tampa is really friendly, lots of dudes with beards, I love. I met one dude that asked if we spoke english in Nigeria, I was dumb founded. He was from Maine, I guess he doesn't go out much.

The food wasn't so good, I mean it was a terrible imitation of my precious Jollof rice. Hunger was real so I had to eat it all. I took pictures of a lot of people and random things too. I got a total of 17 beads, some people has close to 50 beads round their. There were about 500 thousand people for this event.
It was crazy, if you had a tiny bladder and needed to pee, you had to flash your 'boobs' for a toilet pass or pay $5. If you wanted more beads with plastic genitals, you also has to flash your boobs. That was the trend of the day.
I took a long walk on the longest walk way in the world, bayshore boulevard, it was beautiful in the sunset. All in all, it was a day worth writing about. It a festival you must see, mark your calendars for the last Saturday in January 2016. You would absolutely love it.

Eye Candy alert!!!

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Smart money woman; personal finance tips

Smart money woman; personal finance tips The Smart Money woman series was really interesting, you should check it out on Netflix . After watching it, I got inspired to share these 5 personal finance tips. When it comes to money many people are going with the flow. But it requires intentionality, we must steward everything God has blessed us with.  I covered giving cheerfully but prudently, retirement funds, and many more.  I don't know all things personal finance but I believe that I am a smart money woman. I hope this helps you in your journey to financial freedom.  Proverbs 13.22a A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,  With love, Bibi 

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast  By Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hello, welcome to my blog. If you clicked on this link it’s either you’re fasting already or are planning to fast. The good thing is you’re planning to have an effective fast by seeking all the information you can get on this. I won’t waste much of your time and I’ll get into it. Don’ts of fasting -  Have a Transactional mindset : A long time ago I thought fasting was about doing something so God will bless you. This led to a string of disappointment because I never got what I wanted from him. After all, I deprived myself for God but He didn’t do his part. We must first understand that fasting is not to move God, it’s to help us align with the move he’s made. The bible says in Ephesians 1.3 (NKJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. God is always on our side, we need not deal with him on a transaction basis. We fast to tra
