This time last year I was single, this time this year I am single, well technically. What happened in between was an amazing journey. In December I met an old high school sweetheart and started the year on a promising note. There is no standard way to deal with a breakup, but I am going to share what worked for me.

lady thinking

To say the MMM train is huge in Nigeria is an understatement, I even dreamt about it last night. I am not even joking; I had a friend call me before bed time asking my thoughts on the scheme. She is currently serving as a corps member in one of the local government offices in Lagos.

The child in mind is very much alive, can you tell? Well, today I watched Moana, and I enjoyed it tremendously. Moana is a great family movie; I love the direction Disney is going these days, skipping Prince Charming altogether.

Pineapple mint frappe smoothie

I woke up realising that Christmas is upon us. This is a good thing. Christmas is a really big deal for me. It has been right from my childhood. I woke up thinking of the menu for Christmas, the spicy jollof rice, pounded yam and afia efere, goat meat pepper soup and all the good things of life. Well, I started thinking of the drinks and how to do things a little different and I decided on having exotic cocktails. 

Black woman doing micro blading

Honestly ladies I can be your guinea pig for almost any beauty concern. So after I got my eye lash extensions which I loved, I started thinking about micro blading, which is a service that my salon also offers.
 I may have lost some people right now, so let me explain. Micro blading is a technique like waxing or threading for eyebrows only it is semi permanent, giving defined brows and tint for up to 18 months.

These days the standards of beauty have risen so high that there is this huge gap between what you see in magazines and on social media versus what you see in an average everyday woman especially an African one. I am in no way condemning people that live life the way they do. However, there are some of us who are very curious about how these glamorous women achieve some of their results.

Peel facials

I have always had very oily skin and occasional breakouts. It was never a problem for me until my skin revolted totally. I had more breakouts, rashes, dry skin and some patches. It was horrible.

 I decided to do something about it. Immediately I made up my mind; I booked an appointment with a dermatologist. I went in for my first consult for an assessment. I discovered I needed to change my regimen and bought some products for sensitive skin. I was then booked in for three sessions of Glycolic peel facials. I highly recommend it. I will tell you more.

Ombre lips

After you have mastered all the basic make up moves you need, you can step it up a notch by going for Ombre lips. I am sure you are wondering; ‘which one is that again?’ I can assure you that you have seen it before.

 The funny part is, our ancestors thought of this move before- but in a crude way. You remember the black lip liner thing? Yes, that is what I am talking about! Well, that move has been modified and is now safe for you to try.

First thing you should do is apply concealer on your lips to create a base for the wonderful colours that come next.

Black carrying her baby

I know you are wondering after telling you about eyelash extensions, I am now talking about making babies. Well, if you must know I have a degree in pharmacy. I am a licensed pharmacist.

If you have been trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully for a year, you may need to do some tests. These tests are for male and female. Though, I am going to talk more about female testing.

I met this beautiful Arabian girl at a house party and struck up a conversation with her. Surprisingly, they were playing Nigerian music from Mr Eazi and she seemed to like it. I was fascinated by her interest in Nigeria, and we started talking. She told me about the beautiful places she had visited and showed me the wonders of the Middle East then told me she had gotten her nose and teeth in Jordan. I was as shocked as you are right now. She had gotten a perfect nose through a cosmetic procedure.
