The holidays are close by and of course, lots of fun. The end of the year remains the busiest time of the year for celebrations and merrymaking. From corporate events to weddings, picnics, beach parties, private receptions at home, etc., you sure will agree with me that so much goes into planning for the various forms of entertainments this festive season is known for.

Christmas is in the air! After the hustle of the year 2016, its time to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends.

To help you map out your holiday movie mega-marathon, we've put together a list of 4 Christmas movies that are the perfect way to distract yourself from the turn of another year.


Home Alone (1990)

Home Alone

If you have an Instagram account then you know how the teas that Draya Michele, Khloe Kardashian, Angela Simmons and the likes use. The question is- are they worth your coins?

Hello Ladies!

Let’s talk some spice. Yes, spice - those aromatic substances that bestow loads of zest and flavour to tantalizing recipes!  Ancient cinnamon it is this week!!!

Keto diet

Hmmmmm…keto keto keto!

A few weeks ago, a friend added me to a group on Facebook - a group based on ketogenic living. Being in this group has been a great eye opener for me, I must say. Being on a diet isn’t easy and at first I wasn’t so interested but the awe-inspiring pictures and testimonies from members of the group got me curious, and of course interested. Consequently, I began searching for answers. Yes, search I did!

Eggplant with beef stew

I discovered lately that the Hindi word for eggplants is ‘baingan'. You know what this means?  Baingan is supposedly a word of abuse; derogatory in nature and often used to express an ill-feeling or something without merit - can you beat that?

You definitely can't miss it with cinnamon when it comes to bread or dough!

It’s all about astonishing cinnamon today. Love to know some of the cinnamon’s health benefits? You can take a quick look here (Values and Benefits of Cinnamon) before going into this yummy breakfast recipe.

Groundnut Soup

Recently, a friend was telling me how back in his school days in University of Nigeria, Nsukka (decades ago) he and his roomies would substitute groundnut for egusi in their soup. It was quite intriguing to hear a guy passionately share his cooking experience. Before then, I have heard people mention groundnut soup but combining groundnuts, tomatoes and leaves were considered (by me) as being quite absurd. Thus, I have never given a try out a thought.

The rains are gradually fading away. The dry season is setting in, and of course, perspiration is increasing. One definite way to combat it? Stay hydrated!

Being well-hydrated is not only for countering the humidity and warm temperatures that accompany the incoming season, but also very essential for good health. Consuming water is necessary to keep the body’s systems functioning properly.
