When I first found this blog, I was overwhelmed with pleasure, and the anticipation of more pleasure. Bim Adewumi loves life, and it shows in the way she lives it and the way she writes about it. I reviewed it with great relish.
I remember thinking as I read post after post, that I probably should learn to be more deliberate about enjoying my life and savour every precious moment, and every delightful thing. As a matter of fact, I can’t get enough of her “Why I Love…” series! She knows why she loves ice-cream, dresses, mascara, Black Beauty Supply Shops, glasses…you can tell she not only loves them, she loves loving them! Do you know why you love what you love?
Much like her counterpart in Simi Bedford’s novel, Yoruba Girl Dancing (after which her blog is named, I figure), Bim is Nigerian, and Yoruba, but she is also quite English- and thanks to her love of travel she infuses her blog with so many other flavours. Bookmark it!
