JOIN THE DEBATE: WHAT COLOURS ARE ON THIS DRESS?


I woke up to a BB message from my friend Simi asking me what colour a certain dress was and since I believe my eyes are working fine: I told her what I thought the colours were. Gold and white. 

Surprisingly that's where all the higgihagga is from-not everyone is seing what I'm seeing. On twitter some people say na blue and black den dey see, some na blue and gold. Is this a joke??? This dress s gold and white!!! 

Please join the debate and talk true make devil shame: what colours can you see? #TeamWhiteGold or #TeamBlueBlack ?

HOW TO DEAL WITH NEGATIVE & POSITIVE BLOG COMMENTS!


My fellow bloggers, how are you all doing? There was a time I got an email asking how I deal with negative comments on my blog; I’m not sure if I responded to that email but today I am responding publicly so that everyone can see. 


Let me start from the beginning: story story….the first day I started blogging (then with the name GISTDOTCOM) …the first comment my blog was baptized with was a negative comment. It made me feel terrible and I cried like a baby to Bobo “they hate my blog!” …he was like “calm down, don’t take it personal”…how won’t I take it personal? Someone took their precious time to write something like “stop blogging, your blog is terrible”…how is that not personal?

HOW WAS YOUR NIGHT?

This morning I was led by my hunger cravings and decided I wanted bean ball burger (that’s for the ajebo people) but really it is just akara from the woman down the road plus bread. As I was walking down the road I saw that hot puff-puff guy and I said to him and his goods “get thee behind me, I shall not be tempted today”…the day I search for him he will not pass, today that I want akara he’s knacking his showglass kom kom kom near me.

YAM PORRIDGE RECIPE - VIDEO!

Back in 2012 I uploaded this recipe for yam porridge HERE and I did get requests to do a video for it. Since I am updating my blog with video recipes because nothing has changed with the recipe, I decided to add Asaro (Yam porridge) to the list. Clap for me! Oh something changed: I used Knorr then but for this I used Maggi :D

Which kain sleep I wan sleep when it’s almost time to wake up anyways…Gosh, now I’m getting grumpy! Let's fogedatside.

6 REASONS YOU NEED A SIDE HUSTLE !



I've learnt about having a side hustle since I was younger, from watching family members juggle one job and another. For example, my mama na teacher (shoutout to all our teachers out there!) and she had a shop on the side where she did other businesses...that's what a side hustle is (part time job while doing a full time job). Not everyone feels the need for a side hustle, but if you've been thinking about it: then here are more reason's why 2015 is the year to start!

Focus: You won’t have time to be merry-go-rounding in your life. You see, an idle mind is the devils workshop and an idle mind with mobile phone, internet and bb will cause much chaos. Do have those friends that ping you and always seem to be so available for a “random” chat? I’m not saying idle chat is bad oh, but idle chat everyday is not why we are here. Get busy. Get a side hustle.
