WOMEN AND THEIR WANTS

So I am in the salon, having my nails done, when Shola, my friend hits me up with this gist about a date she had with a guy. As usual she’s in front of the mirror for over an hour. What would he like? Red lips, perhaps a mini skirt or fitted gown, should she pack her hair? How much make up would he like? Etc.

Last weekend I decided to Netflix and chill- alone, watching The Crown. Reviews said it was something to be digested slowly. I thoroughly enjoyed it and ended up binge watching the ten episodes available.

The Crown Review

This is a series from Netflix, same guys that brought us House of Cards, Narcos, Orange is the new black. I can say if you enjoyed Downton Abbey, you would like this.

jerk chicken

Hi Guys, I have an idea for you to use your oven. I know some of you cook, but I know many do not use the oven often here in Nigeria. I had the privilege of been a guest at a fantastic dinner at my friend’s house. I sat in a corner and chewed on the chicken bone after. It was that good. I enjoyed it and later made the dish in my way.

I am going to tell you how to make jerk chicken. The reason why this is such a great idea is that it would have less cholesterol than if you had to fry the chicken.

‘’Has a man ever run away by the sight of your naked body?’’

I am actually quoting Julia Roberts from the movie ‘Eat.Pray.Love.’ The answer is truly always No. I am sorry to disappoint you if you were looking forward to reading ways to get rid of stretch marks; I may or may not discuss that.

After watching Season four episode six last night, I realised I had not told you guys about this series. A friend of mine introduced me to Skinny Girl in Transit a few months ago and I became addicted. At first, I was telling her I had no data to be watching series online but she confided in me she watches during downtime at the office. If you know any lady that concentrates so hard on her screen at lunch times and smiles from time to time, I implore you to investigate.

Black couples in love

‘There is no love without giving’.

That is the truth.

When you love someone you want to give to the person, you want to show your love. You want to solve all their problems. You want to do everything you can.

How can you do this when you are struggling financially, when you have so many challenges to address? How do you remind your beloved that those butterflies are still there without breaking the bank?

These suggestions may be the cheesiest thing you read in a long time but they have worked for many;

Patient attending to patient

Part of living a good life is being in good health; spirit, soul, and body. While you are putting the right clothes, the best weaves and the most exotic perfumes on that body, you have to take care of what is going on inside. If you want to be here to enjoy your hard work and you want to stay as long as you can to be there for those you love then you have to be healthy. One of the important bits about staying healthy is preventing the really dangerous diseases.

2017 is going to be our year, don’t just say amen. Let’s actually work towards it. Poultry farming was all the rage in 2015 but I can tell you from an insider’s perspective that the profit in that business dropped due to the exchange rate, the price of feed, labour etc. Don’t lose faith in the agricultural sector; there are many more options to consider and I suggest piggery.

Digital marketing

Last night I started to write this article but slept off. I, however, woke up to news that one of my guilty pleasures, a relationship page on Instagram after reaching a hundred thousand followers has decided to monetize. This brings me to my point; since we all spend some much time online, there has to be a benefit of doing so. This year, we have to look at things with new eyes and see the cash cows in every situation.

Ayamashe Stew

You start appreciating the things that are most distant. I never thought I was such a fan of Nigerian food till I moved from Nigeria. I was always the first person who would want to try Mexican, Italian or Indian but these days I would be craving rice and stew from Olaiya.

A good friend decided to pity me and make me the most delicious stew I have ever tasted till date. This wonder stew was called Ayamashe; I enjoyed it so much I want you to make this for someone you love. You can serve this stew with rice and fried plantain, boiled egg and chilled coke if you must.
