With all the banter and hype surrounding this movie in the last year, not talking about it feels like a crime even though so much has already been said. If […]
This year, Hollywood promises a lot of great movies; new stories, sequels and prequels. There’s something for everyone; action, science fiction, drama and horror. So make a plan to go to your favourite cinema a lot this year.
This list is a collection of movies I’m eager to watch and my reasons why.
Gosh, it’s been a while since we’ve been out to eat and I’m excited to tell you about Metro Cafe and Grill, Wuse 2. It’s a restaurant and bar side by side, located on Liberville
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.
This post features MAC Matte Liquid Lipcolour for dark skin and some update on my acne situation which I talked about in October’s Beauty Haul.
It also leaves us with the question “Since there are more poor people than rich people in the world. Why don’t more of our unequal societies implode?” I’d like to know what you think.
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.
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 […]
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.
Lagos for me is a lot like that loud unattractive lover you can’t stand to be around too long, but are enamoured with regardless. The hustle and bustle in this concrete jungle is characterised by the unpleasant smell of what I like to think is the sea, crowds of people at bus-stops, and the constant riotous noise; a mix of blaring horns and shrilling voices. But, it’s Lagos, my place of love.
I landed in Lagos, tried to get an Uber taxi to pick me up. Turns out the driver that took the call was too far away and I had to cancel, costing me N1000. I mean, “somebody cannot make mistake with your service?”
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” I challenge you to pause more to ask yourself that question.
If you have ever felt overworked, stretched, busy but unproductive, overwhelmed by other people’s needs, and lacking personal time because you have difficulty saying no to other people’s requests, this book is for you.
On a hunt for the best Shawarma in Abuja and here’s my review of Shawarma King, Drumstix, Chicken Capitol, Sahad
This is arguably the best tasting shawarma in Abuja. I especially liked that garlic was an option
In my opinion, Drumstix Shawarma is great value for money, the location and outdoor sitting area is perfect for people-watching and getting a feel of the city, and the convenience associated with getting it is priceless.
If you are in Abuja and craving shawarma, Shawarma King will make you very happy.
Now, they say if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. So I don’t know how to talk about this one. To begin with, I’m not a germophobe but I developed hygiene concerns when I saw him take the shawarma of the small grill with his fingers, which he had just used to touch is phone while taking a call. Phones are some of the dirtiest object around.
In my previous post, I recommended that you learn new makeup tips and tricks from social media. For obvious reasons, my go-to medium is YouTube.

Bath is in the valley of the River Avon, west of London, England, or so Google says. I only rode the bus there. This city is a popular tourist destination because, as the name implies, the city is known for its hot springs and Roman-built baths. Yes, back in 60AD, Romans used to come from far and wide to soak and enjoy the hot springs.
Since 2008, the 19th of June has been set apart by the United Nations as a day to increase public awareness of the Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) which has been officially recognised as a global health concern. Past the finger-pointing, there is a cure for Sickle Cell Disease. Following bone marrow transplant and stem cell transplant, which requires a donor who is a bone marrow match (preferably a sibling), there have been significant advancements.
Now, if you’ve ever wondered where the phrase “every man and his dog” came from, I’m quite certain it’s Great Britain.
I quit the Ketogenic Diet after Day 30 for 21 days on the Water fast
Sequel to my previous post on South African Visa requirements, this post is an update for 2017 requirements. All the application requirements with regards to documents remain the same as […]
The Old Testament has been particularly interesting, a lot like a movie to be honest, a gripping if not terrifying one. From the ground swallowing people up and relentless plagues, to Phinehas impaling a Israelite man and Midianite woman on his spear. But I’ll be sharing just a few.
Driving to work this morning and late as usual, I turned on the radio to find Kachi of Kiss FM suggesting we take on the 14 days #NoMakeUp Challenge and go bare-faced for Valentine’s Day. This caught my attention because I took the no make-up challenge for a month late last year but I didn’t come round to telling you all about it.
I’ve been dying to get a new camera, and after weeks of extensive research, I’m obsessed with getting the Nikon D5300 and a super wide-angle lens!
At the start of this year, I decided to read the Bible from start to finish. But, this isn’t the first time. I attempted to do this in 2005 and again in 2011, and both times I didn’t get past Genesis. However, this time I’m using Youversion and I am determined to make it through this year
After every review, I feel like I gain a pound. But I’m enjoying myself too much to care, and I can’t wait to tell you about the doughnuts from the Donut Factory. The Donut Factory is located in Jabi, Abuja and serves some of the best doughnuts in this city!
Despite being on a diet for that illusive summer body, I will be eating and reviewing a number of doughnuts in the coming weeks. First up: Kreamy Kravings by Tin-tin
You can’t deny the similarity between this brand name and the Krispy Kreme Franchise. But that’s as far as it goes.
In June 2015, news hit Nigerian media sites that Anita Solomon was pregnant by Maje Ayida, Toke Makinwa’s husband. The scandal lingered because his marriage to the media personality was only a year and six months old. Maje went on to make numerous public apologies on social media and gave an interview on the issue. However, Toke kept mum and has come up with this book a year after the scandal. This silence and mystery created a lot of buzz about the book which was released last week.
If you graduated from the University of Abuja at least 10 years ago, your certificate is probably ready. However, there just isn’t enough information available on the collection process prior to visiting the campus, which is often out of the way. So as requested, this post attempts to shed more light on the process of collecting your BSc certificate from the University of Abuja.

These are dark times for us. Our naira is at an all-time low and shopping online from any foreign country is nearly unaffordable. However, we are Nigerians and how does that saying go?

We’ve been reviewing a number of restaurants lately and enjoying ourselves, maybe a little too much. But, here goes: 355 Steakhouse and Lounge.
Bored with the office canteen’s food, my colleagues and I were deliberating on what to have for breakfast. Then one of them suggested we try moi-moi from the “Moi-Moi Factory”. I couldn’t hide my amusement at the name and its obvious similarity to “Charlie’s Chocolate Factory”. I was intrigued and immediately decided I’d try some.
I am keen on individuality and creativity so the idea of personalizing my card with a nice picture appealed to me. I quickly decided that when my current card expired, I’d renew it with First Bank Expressions.
I had been to Salamander Cafe before and loved their Avocado Omelette, so I convinced my girls to have breakfast there. It is an upscale bistro with a lot […]
Discovering what our options were was difficult for me because the information is so dispersed, online and in real life. This post is your one-stop to answering the burning question “What do we do now? What are our options”. It’s a long one but I promise it’ll be worth your while.
Ocean Basket is a seafood restaurant chain with outlets around South Africa, and a branch in Victoria Island, Lagos. Not everyone is big on sea food so a few of my colleagues were hesitant. However, with really good reviews on Trip Advisor, and its proximity to our lodgings, I convinced them to take a chance.
Online shopping has revolutionized the fashion industry and I have to tell you that Asos has got this business model right. Asos is one of the biggest online fashion retail store and in my opinion, the best.
If you have a reason to go to South Africa from Nigeria, perhaps for business or pleasure; it is helpful to keep in mind that the requirements for a South African visa change often. Worse, these requirements are slightly different from those stated on the VFS Global Checklist. This difference cost me a lot of time and energy, and more painfully, a lot of money.
So, this post is to better prepare you for your visa submission at the VFS Office.
After enjoying some really delicious Chloe’s cookies from a friend, I decided to check out this store and place an order. The store was so beautiful; I immediately knew I had to write a review on it.

I’ve always liked Nkoyo restaurant in Abuja! It’s such beautiful place. The restaurant was decorated with bamboos and plants, giving the area a warm ambience.
I’m not a makeup kind of girl. The best I’ve done in more than two years is plaster on some lipstick and eye liner, and off I go!
