I decided to attempt dark food photography after being inspired by a Pinterest blog. My first attempt was a disaster because I couldn’t get my camera settings right, the black cardboard came out looking blue and I didn’t know as many Adobe Light room tricks as I do now.
It’s here! The moment we’ve been waiting for. Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers team up to fight Thanos; their most powerful adversary yet! His mission: to collect all six Infinity Stones and rebalance the universe. And as usual, our fate rests with the Avengers. You have to be living under a rock, on the moon, not to have heard about this movie because Thanos has gone and just about destroyed everywhere else!
The suspense and panic in this movie is so contagious and will have you mindful and unable to speak. Don’t bring popcorn to the cinema for this one guys. Don’t be the one to get everyone killed.
Last week, I started my Easter 2018 Giveaway and the support has been overwhelming. If you didn’t see the post you should click here
Following the title, I came across this informal blog post theme and loved the idea of having a chit-chat and catching up with my readers on the little things in my life that don’t necessarily make it into my other blog posts. However, a huge concern was the fact that “having coffee” or tea as a social experience is not part of our Nigerian culture.
In the past 3 years, I’ve learnt a few things no one told me about blogging in Nigeria and this post is an attempt to share it with you.
This year’s Valentine’s Day is extra special, not just because I’m Catholic and it’s Ash Wednesday, but I got an unexpected Beauty Haul!
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.
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.
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.
While much of the world enjoys the holiday season making snowmen in winter, we must cope with hot, dust-laden winds by day and cold, dry winds at night. Yes, the Harmattan season is here,
At this joyous time of the year, we think about all we are grateful for. I am grateful for you, your readership and the support you continuously provide our blog.
Now, I am all for doing the right thing and gender equality, but these fuel queues under this relentless sun is no place to find a lady. This means we too have to work our “magic”.
So, here are a few tips to help us get through this
I’ve come to learn that every part of the chicken is enjoyable to someone. There were as many drumstick lovers as there were those who live for the unpopular parts like the chicken’s head, toes and just the pleasure of cracking the bones!
It’s my second tag nomination this year and I am humbled by this recognition from Nessa of Stuffed Shelves Be sure to check out her blog, she’s down to earth and very talented.
Following my hit post on options for AS genotype couples, I’ve got a lot of questions and comments demanding information, medical options, alternatives or strategies for AS couples in Nigeria to have Sickle-Cell-Free children. So I’ve been making inquiries at fertility clinics.
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.
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.
I know I said I had done my last Abuja Shawarma review for this year but I keep getting interesting recommendations, and well I like food. Downtown Restaurant is a […]
It’s been a while since I invested in any beauty product, so I decided to buy a few small things from Montaigne Place in Silverbird Abuja. I got Murad Rapid […]
It’s the very first time I’ve been nominated for any blogging award, so I’m pleasantly surprised and quite thankful.
Now I’ve got 8 rolls left, who’s hungry?
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!
Oh, I’m quite excited to tell you about this one. I had the heartiest breakfast in the most serene environment, prepared and served by courteous and friendly staff. I think it is a great place for a family breakfast and I’m sure your kids would enjoy the choice of ice-cream along with breakfast, and find the colourful fresh fruits a delight.
Sequel to my previous post on the Asaba Massacre Memorial Day, below are a list of some 374 people, less than half the number of civilians murdered on the 7th of October, 1967.
