My Very 1st Blow-Out
Every kinky-haired sister out there knows that shrinkage is real! Too real! And a lot of us turn to blow-drying to give us some respite from that particular issue. It took me a while to finally get round to blow-drying my hair, and I saved it for a special occasion. It was my graduation! Whoopeedoo! It was sometime around my 2nd-year post-relaxer anniversary. I had decided to do a flat twist-out style I had seen on YouTube (I can’t find the specific video I watched, but there a ton of tutorials out there; just Google). And I thought to blow-dry my hair to get added length. So, I went for it. Continue reading “My Very 1st Blow-Out”

It’s Fathers’ Day!
We go way back, my dad and me:-D. Yeah, I know you just rolled your eyes. But we do! Right from the time, he stood over my cot protecting my hour-old self from mosquitoes. Yup, he did that. It’s been over 2 decades now and it’s been a series of interesting experiences. Long story short. He calls it as he sees it. He’s genuine through … Continue reading It’s Fathers’ Day!
I subscribe to a newsletter from New Release Tuesday (a wonderful Christian resource website). It’s a great way to keep up-to-date with Christian music. They also give free weekly downloads. Which is how I came across J Han – a very interesting rapper. Who led me to AMP Movement – a Christian music collective, Which, in turn, led me to the topic of today – Sam Ock. Listen to some awesome music
Carrot Chips: Easy-Peasy Healthy Snack
Recently in my church, there was a seminar on making healthy substitutes to processed snacks. Why? They are mostly high in all kinds of things you really don’t want in your body; eg processed sugars, sodium and/or weird unpronouncable chemicals. And don’t we all love to snack? I know I do – -a packet of plantain chips here, some sweet popcorn there, and don’t even get me started on mt love for chocolate Digestives. But lately, I’ve become more aware of my body and I am making a conscious effort to take care of it. After all, my body is the Temple of the Most High. So, I’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to eat healthy. Make you own chips!
Lagos Carnival 2015
I attended the Lagos Carnival this year! But before I dish on that, I’d like to use this opportunity to introduce my new blog Black and Yellow Urbanism! Yes, yes, I’ve started another one. The blog is focused on urbanisms (one of my passions) in Lagos (so you see it’s a completely different topic 😉 ).
Now, on to the the carnival details. Continue reading “Lagos Carnival 2015”
It’s Mothers’ Day!
“Her children speak well of her… she should be praised in public for what she has done.” – Prov 31: 28,31
Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets confused with the dates of the various Mothers’/Mothering days that the world celebrates every year. 😀 At any rate, today is the day I’m celebrating this year – the day we celebrated in my church. Although, it’s a few minutes past midnight now…
Can’t I earn equal pay and still let you open the door for me?
Chivalry is dead. At the very least, it’s dying. Okay, to my thinking, it’s definitely on the decline. Yes? Come on, it can’t just be me thinking this. No?
Recently, I’ve watched a group of men not so much as flinch when a woman almost tripped over a microphone stand in church. Only 1 of about 4 moved a muscle. As he jumped up, he reached for the microphone stand. Not the woman, he got up to rescue the microphone stand! Read on
Easy-Peasy DIY Facial Toner
I absolutely adore Lush cosmetics! My goodness, I could spend hours and oodles of cash in one of their shops. Their products have the best scents, and results ever. Every time I go in to get something specific, I leave the shop with at least one more product – no matter how much I try to resist! The only drawback is the steep prices 😦 (especially on a student budget which I was on at the time 😀 ). Oh and they have fabulous customer service! Someone is always there to answer your questions, and make suggestions. This is beginning to sound like a Lush ad… 😀 But I love, love, love it!
One day, I went in for hair moisturiser (they have this absolutely gorgeous one called R&B- it’s the best thing ever I tell you), but I stumbled on a tea tree facial toner that I knew I had to try. It was one of the cheapest things in the store, and I was like, “Yup, I’m definitely taking this home.” It worked beautifully! But one of my friends (an amazing lady called Livvy who makes a large number of her cosmetics herself) recommended I make mine. See how to make yours
Get to Know Me
Hallo, people! So, I did a lil video about me. It occurred to me to give everyone who reads this blog and subscribes to my YouTube channel a bit more background on who I am. And the Get To Know Me video was born! Whoopeedoo! One of the main reasons I did it was to help you (yes, you 😉 ) relate to me and this … Continue reading Get to Know Me
