I honestly cannot over estimate the wonders of water on your skin. I am sure you have heard countless times that our bodies are made up of 80% water so we definitely need water to keep refreshed and nourished.

Now there are two major ways you can experience the wonders of water on your skin. They are pretty obvious but you can indulge in this free (well not so free considering utility bills and packaged water) natural goodness by hygiene and drinking it.

Nothing beats a refreshing shower after a hot, sticky day or a warm soothing bath even on cold days.

As I write this, I am in my office contemplating a large plate of Ofada rice with plenty orisirisi and a chilled bottle of cola. I looked down at my belly and I knew that would be the worst decision especially as I am not hungry, I just want to snack.

Everyone loves smoothie, right? Who doesn't love a combo of creamy yogurt, fresh or frozen fruit, natural sweeteners, plus delicious and nutritious super foods?       

Smoothies are a great way for you to get all of your most nutritionally-packed foods into one glass, but it can also work for your kids.

Being pregnant could be a joyful time as you are expecting the birth of your baby; but it could also be a stressful and even fearful time, especially if you have friends or family around you who think that telling you fearful stories of their labour and delivery is funny. These people keep increasing your fear by telling you they had an episiotomy and second degree tears, which may make you wonder if you have to go through the same pains.

Drink milk! It would give you strong bones and protect them against diseases. Drink milk, It would keep your teeth healthy and strong. These were basically the benefits of milk we were taught as kids, which without any doubt is true. However, have you ever thought about the benefits to your body beyond these?



Can you swim?

I can’t. I wish I could but I can’t and I have always been happy to blame my race.

Have you heard about the stereotype that black people are the worst swimmers? That was the perfect excuse for me not to attempt to swim. However, that stereotype just got shattered at the Rio Olympics so that excuse is gone.

I was still wondering why black people, especially black women, aren’t so keen on swimming then it came to me, same reason we are worried when we are out while it rains, our HAIR!
