MY EXPERIENCE AT 1ST OAK PLACE HOTEL, ABUJA!


On my last trip to Abuja, I stayed at 1st Oak Place Hotel in Maitama - when I was told by the #StartUpFriday team that we would be lodging here, I googled the hotel and found almost nothing about it so I decided that a review was in place. Yes? Hopefully I get to go on more trips around the WORLD (speaking it into existence) and you'll see more reviews.

The first thing I liked a lot about the room we stayed in was the window-the lighting was on point and for bloggers you know how important that is for photos! I filmed my Ankara Head Wrap Tutorial there and you can see how lit it was!  To see the video of our trip to Abuja CLICK HERE

17 NUGGETS FROM TIWA SAVAGE'S MARRIAGE

A lot of us saw Tiwa Savage's interview where she aired (more like pata-hanging outside) the details of her marriage to TeeBillz. A few days ago most people were siding with TeeBillz because they thought "Oh what a terrible woman you must have been married to for you to want to jump off a bridge", but now that Tiwa has spoken...it clearly seems the problems were much bigger than Tiwa. This is not about Tiwa Savage. 

OILLESS OKRA SOUP - GBAGBAFOFO (FITFAM FRIENDLY!)

Let me tell you an interesting story of how Bobo, my husband fell hopelessly in love with this soup. On my trip to Warri I bought a lot of my Niger Delta Spices and I had to time to visit a restaurant or two to have my favourite soups, I had Gbagbafofo and promised to make it for my family. Oya oh, we reached lagos and Bobo asks what's for dinner, I say Gbagbafofo, he's like "abeg give me Egusi", I tried to encourage him  to go for the Okra but he no gree, so I made two soups, Okra and Egusi

3 AWESOME WAYS TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS!


I was invited to Abuja a few days ago for #StartUpFriday to talk about How To Use Social Media To Grow Your Business. That they could sponsor me and my family from Lagos to Abuja for that topic should show you how serious this Social Media Business is-you cannot afford to not represent your brand on social media because the benefits are immense! When I hear about a brand the first thing I do is Google them. It will be difficult to take them seriously or trust their business if they are either not on social media or their social media presence is very poor. So let's talk about ways to use social media to sell ya markaet!

ANKARA HEAD WRAP TUTORIAL

I picked out this Ankara scarf from my mom's collection  on my last trip to Warri. She has a lot of short scarf she does nothing with, a lot of Naija moms do. This one is such a beautiful pattern and it inspired the head wrap style-I love head wraps especially on days when I don't know what to do with my hair. 

FIRST BITE: IS THE CHIN-CHIN BY LONGE FOODS WORTH BUYING?

I was doing my weekly shopping at Shoprite so I wandered into the aisle with biscuits, chocolates, drinks and all other ijekuje when I stumbled into this product. I love trying new things because how else would you have a new obsession if you don't try something new?!

I initially picked up one pack of the Chin-Chin and Bobo picked another. When I got to the till I realised they were different flavours....how did I miss this? I quickly sprinted back to that aisle and picked a third which turned out to be the Coconut flavoured Chin-Chin. Couldn't wait to try them!

It is to promote and foster resultant relationships that will help startups to grow and scale their businesses.

HOW TO DEAL WHEN BABY BITES WHILE BREASTFEEDING!


Oh motherhood! I've heard of babies biting their mother's nipples and the day it happened to me I thought I was dying! Bobo was almost rolling on the floor from serious laughter... "these nipples are sensitive my fren why are you laughing"? Even Tito looked up from his position and was laughing. Kini gbogbo katikati ? Wozalldis?! Bobo's mum told me that her son, my husband, was just the same! Biting you while staring deep into your eyes to see your reaction. Like father, like son!
