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
All good things must come to an end. After 8 years, our favourite President is leaving office and gave his farewell speech in Chicago.
I am enamored by this great man, his love for his country and his family. But reactions to his exit on Twitter have ranged from:
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in our giveaway and helped make it a success!
Today is the first page of a new chapter. Lets make it a bestseller! Happy New Year!🎉🍻
I’m taking a break between stuffing my face with donuts to say a very Merry Christmas to you and all of yours!
No review is complete without a baseline, so short of the road-side doughnut, Shoprite doughnuts sets that minimum standard.
Sequel to my previous reviews, and in my quest for the best doughnut in Abuja, let me present: Coco Ribbon Doughnuts! Located in Wuse 2, Coco Ribbon Doughnuts are high-end and quite frankly, the most expensive doughnuts I’ve had in my life, costing twice the price of the others.
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.
I want to be excited because “there is no place like home” but Murtala Muhammed Airport Abuja airport is the only one I’ve been to where you have to
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.
Christmas, the season for giving is around the corner and we at The Red Confidential are excited about our very first Christmas Give-Away!
Jaipur, popularly referred to as the “Pink City”, is the capital of the State of Rajasthan, India. It is known for its unique architecture, forts, palaces, art, culture and of course, its tasty cuisines.
Sequel to my previous post, this focuses on the stark differences between Nigeria and India.
In Nigerian terms “India has light constantly”. Even driving by what appeared to be a slum, I notice bulbs shining brightly. The power supply has only gone off twice and I was surprised to hear myself say “NEPA has finally taken the light”. In about 5 minutes, power supply was restored. For someone who has endured erratic power supply all her life, there’s not much to say or compare with here except to express disappointment and pray that Fashola can redeem us.
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.
Delhi is home to a number of historic architectural monuments and I have visited a number of them, which I’ll tell you about in subsequent posts. However, nothing prepared me for the magnificence of the Akshardham Temple, making this a challenging post to articulate.
