Discovering Delhi – Survival Tips

I’ve been here for over 2 months now, touring and making a mental note of helpful information for you in case you ever find that you are heading this way. I’ll get to the point.

What to wear
In contrast to the information I found on the internet, dressing standards here are not as strict as I was lead to believe. However, you have to cover your cleavage. I’m not saying turtle neck but your “girls” must be covered. It’s confusing because exposed midriffs appear to be acceptable. A few temples require that your clothes cover your knees as well but that’s all I’ve seen.

Discovering Delhi

Life has taken me on another adventure and guess where? India!
It’s my first time in Asia; Earth’s largest and most populous continent. For over a month now, I’ve been in Delhi, the capital territory. It is a massive metropolitan area north of the country, located much like Abuja is in Nigeria. It is bordered by Haryana which I’ve also had the opportunity to visit.

How to Collect your BSc Certificate from University of Abuja

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.

Turning at 30

Turning 30 is a milestone every woman has an opinion about, most of which aren’t pleasant. I remember coming home on my 30th birthday feeling quite shocked about how good 30 felt. I had crowned the day by going Salsa dancing in Victoria Island and all that spinning and twirling had me dizzy with excitement about life.

Demystifying Some Make-Up Misconceptions and Stereotypes

Cosmetics have advanced significantly in recent years, boasting new beauty products that last longer, with a myriad of accompanying innovative application techniques, all aimed at improving what we look like. There’s no shortage of before and after pictures of happy clients by Nigerian make-up artists on Instagram, spotting dramatic transformations, particularly for weddings and other formal events.

Colouring Me Beautiful

Following my #NoMakeUp Challenge, it’s been 22 days without an ounce of makeup, no powder and accordingly, no eyebrows. So I think it’s fitting to tell you a bit about me and make up.
As a child, I loved to draw and paint. Before I could write, I could draw, connecting all the little bumps on our bedroom wall with pencil lines. It came naturally to me.

Why Travelling is Good for You

It is always fun to travel. My earliest memory of traveling is staring out at the trees speeding past on either side of the endless stretch of road, and then drifting in and out of sleep in the backseat of my dad’s Peugeot 504. This year, I’ve been blessed to travel often, both locally and abroad, and even now, the steady hum of the engine, plane or car, still sends me to sleep.

My #NoMakeUp Month Challenge 

I haven’t discussed my relationship with make-up with you, but you should know that it’s my one true love. I’ve worn make-up at least 5 days a week for the past 10 years. I pat, blend, bake and beat this face flawlessly, and my highlight game is for the gods. But, absence makes the heart grow fonder so I’m taking a break.
