Ever since a popular Nigerian Blogger purchased a 600 million Naira house the interest in blogging has increased. Okay, I admit it readily increased with the display of wealth and material possessions on social media.

The Question: Can you really make money as a blogger?

Answer: Yes!!!

Is it easy?

Answer: Truthfully, No

Should you try it?

Answer: Definitely!

 

What you gotta do is;

 Pick a Struggle

Either by chance or choice, for different reasons, women become single mothers. Whatever the reasons are, single motherhood status is a tough one especially in an African society like ours. Keeping it all together as a single mother can be one big emotional roller coaster. Besides the pressure, the stigma, the loneliness (need I say more?), taking on dual parental responsibilities isn’t easy but it’s definitely not impossible. 

Contrary to popular opinion; that the older we get, the lesser milk we need, milk is essential for everyone not just growing children. Women in particular require the essential bone building nutrients of milk - calcium, protein, potassium, magnesium and vitamins A and D.  

Most Naija staple foods are laden with carbs but fibre rich, and very low in fat. Fibre is an essential nutrient for the body. Not only vital for weight loss/maintenance but fibre is also needed for disease prevention in our bodies. So do we avoid these fibre rich foods because they have carbs too? No! Minimal consumption is Key! 

Fantastic! That’s what comes to mind when I think of Tiger Nut milk.  

Also known as “ofio” (Yoruba), “akihausa” (ibo) and “aya” (Hausa), Tiger nuts being sold in wheelbarrows by “abokis” are common sights on the streets of Naija. Oblivious of the high nutrition in tiger nuts, children and adults simply enjoy them as crunchy nutty snacks. 

Umbrella

We are still battling to understand the seasons with climate change but after seeing it rain a couple of times, it is best to be prepared.

Put your fashionable feet forward with these must haves.

1. Umbrella

Except you are going for a wet look, an umbrella should always be in your bag. You don’t know when the weather might change. Opt for small and trendy umbrellas instead of the granny ones we end up forgetting everywhere.

2. Waterproof bag
