Red

I'm Red and I like to write and I take a few great pictures. A constant learner caught in wanderlust, I'm always looking for new ideas, destination or adventure! Best part it, I tell everyone about it on my blog. When I’m not reading, editing or writing for this blog, you’ll find me saving the planet from villains and zombies, or just raiding the fridge.🙈

This list is a collection of movies I’m eager to watch and my reasons why.

Book Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas 

In Nigeria, no parent has to give their child  “the talk” with respect to the police. Nigerian police are corrupt and we don’t exactly trust them, but they aren’t exactly out to hunt us.

Happy New Year!

My goal for the Red Confidential isn’t to be famous or as wealthy as Linda Ikeji (although it won’t hurt to be able to give you recharge cards and other monetary gifts monthly). It’s to add something small to the simple daily life of very ordinary people.

The Mystery Blogger Award 

I’m incredibly humbled to announce that I have been nominated as the recipient of the “Mystery Blogger Award” by my Ghanaian Sweetheart, Emefa of Akwaababafie. I couldn’t think of a better way to crown our blogging efforts this year.

Movie Review: The Mountain Between Us

First, I feel like this movie was deliberately interracial, given all the racial tensions in the US this past year. The main characters are Hollywood A-Listers. Kate Winslet (famous for her role in the Titanic) plays Alex Martin an inquisitive international journalist covering war turn areas and Idris Elba a British neurosurgeon, Dr Ben Bass.

Book Review: The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

Released on October 3, The Sun and Her Flowers offers perspective on a lot of sensitive aspects of a woman’s personal life; love, loss, heartbreak, trauma and motherhood, and controversial circumstances in Indian society which include culture, feminism, and immigration. As is obvious from her name, Rupi Kaur is an Indian woman who emigrated with her parents to Canada when she was four.

Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is an award given to blogs by other bloggers, as a way to be discovered, connect and support the blogging community. Liebster in German means sweetheart, beloved, or darling. Originally given to blogs with less than 2000 readers, the Liebster Award is now given to blogs with far less followership.

11 Travel Tips for Nigerians this Christmas

Trips during the Christmas period can be hectic and exhausting, so depending on your circumstance this may not always be possible. However, it’s holiday season. Smile, talk to the stranger sitting next to you on the bus or flight. Don’t wait till there’s turbulence and you feel like you might be about to die before you say hello. Take a few pictures at your stops. Make memories and live a little.

My Maid of Honour Toast

Having been a member of the Toastmasters Club, I like to think that writing and giving toasts are right up my alley. However, putting this together and delivering it proved to be more challenging than I had anticipated. First, my friend drives me crazy half the time and writing this, I realised that I took a lot of her amazing qualities for granted.

My Bestfriend’s Wedding

Anytime I expressed my happiness and excitement for her there was always someone there to compare our personal lives and tell me to “tap into her blessing” or ask me “So, when is your own?”. It felt like I was supposed to be in some kind of competition or at the very least want to be married because she was getting married.

Saturday Out Grocery Shopping

You know how you ĺook at someone you absolutely love and see all the good things you want to do to them? Yeah, just looking at these tomatoes I had that Halo moment. I could see future, bright with a salad and three different kinds of stew!
