INSPIRATION

“When life gives you lemons…..”

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Abubele Green, fondly called Bubu. The host of Bubu’s Boulevard and this is my maiden post. Yayyyy! What better way to start this journey than sharing with you what inspired me to start this blog in the first place and tell what my blog is all about.

I’m just your regular girl who has a passion for writing (articles,stories,music lyrics,poems) and making music. I followed my passion for media after school and worked with some reputable media houses as a radio host. A wife and mom to two great kids, currently living in Saudi Arabia. Yesss! The Saudi Arabia y’all hear about. Living in Saudi Arabia came with its perks as well as its downside – which was living a sedentary lifestyle . I went from being a workaholic to having a lot of extra time on my hands. Like an addict cut off from her supply, it was challenging getting used to the new life. What’s a girl gotta do with all this time on her hands (besides making a family. LOL)? Despite the excuses and doubts in my head, I decided to pick up hobbies both old and new and channeled  my thoughts, opinions and articles that fascinate me into a blog. Probably the best time to put to test all those high English test scores and  great accolades from my High school English teacher. Hahaha. So writing this blog is my little way of making every moment count.

Bubu’s Boulevard is a ‘naija-centric‘ yet cosmopolitan lifestyle blog highlighting a vista of topics ranging from beauty, style and lifestyle, to real life issues, inspirational stories, news, entertainment and yes, that non-technical part of sports that most women do love *whipping my wig* . This is a reflection of me, my thoughts, my opinions on things I love to do and talk about. Hence a lot of love, hard work and cups of sunshine have been put into it.

The aim of this blog is to inform, educate, entertain and focus on tackling the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of life. You know, life is so tedious. From one yeye ‘i-can-drive’ driver almost hitting your car, to PHCN’s no-light bonanza, to kids screaming and kicking, don’t you just want to take a break from all that and learn something valuable and fun? Yes! This is the spot for it. If I end up making you smile or gain something valuable, Harllerluryar! That’s all that matters. If I don’t, oh well, still visit next time.

As this is my vocation, I hope to keep to my word and be consistent as much as I can ‘cos I have days when Mummy duties can be overwhelming, even days when I literally fight off my kids from the PC’s keyboard. Days like that, we could all just hold hands and sing ‘kumbaya’ on my behalf. LOL. Anyway, If you have got newsworthy articles you would like to share here, don’t hesitate to contact me. It will be shared and credited to your name. Great advice and constructive criticisms are also welcome. Negative comments, especially under the ‘Anonymous’ gang are highly prohibited.

On  a final note, I have learnt not to give excuses but take advantage of every moment and make the best out of every seemingly ‘lemon’ situation. I hope you do too. So when life gives you lemons, don’t just make lemonade, make an exotic cocktail.  Cheers!!! See you in my next post.

With Love,

Bubu
