It is gradually dawning on me that Christmas is for kids: you have to do all you can to create special, long lasting memories for them, and the first step is usually this "Christmas Cloth" business.

The Organiser of Christmas.

HOW I LOST WEIGHT FROM SIZE 16-10 + GIVEAWAY!

This has got to be the most requested video/blog post I have had and I can understand why. If you've been with me from the beginning you watched me go from lepa to orobo and now I'm basically a skinny girl in transit (I love that show!). I went from size 8 to size 16 real quick after getting pregnant and having a baby all within 1 year...I never esperrrred it! As a Lifestyle blogger I was not allowed to be an orobo in peace as the comments I got were unpleasant, add hormones into the matter, it was not an easy time.

YOU WILL BE MORE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT AFTER READING THIS


Iron is more essential to our bodies than you think! 

When I wrote the last article about iron deficiency (click here to find it), honestly, I hadn’t thought it would be so much of a big deal. I had only responded to a cause I felt obliged to be a part of, being a woman myself.

WHERE ARE THE 3.5 MILLION NIGERIANS INFECTED WITH HIV/AIDS? BY DIMOSTHENIS SAKELLARIDIS


The intention of the title is not to scare or stigmatize any reader but to generate an intelligent discussion about the scourge of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria. In a country of 189 million people, 3.5 million may seem like an insignificant number. However, I know of some countries with population’s less than 3.5 million people and I cannot imagine what the future of such a country would look like if all their citizens were infected with HIV/AIDS. The picture of such an imagination would be a monumental tragedy of devastating proportions! Horrendous statistics in Nigeria pegs the HIV/AIDS infected population at 3.5 million and either way you look at it, it is no mean figure.

THE BILLION COIN (TBC) AN ABUNDANCE BASED CURRENCY

According to Richard Branson, CRYPTO CURRENCY will transform the world. Dangote, one of Africa's wealthiest takes risk, and he's never afraid of new investment. Are you still waiting for the naira to rise above the Dollar, well Naira, Dollar, Euro etc. are all fiat currency and are subject to rise and fall.


I bring to you THE BILLION COIN (TBC), a crypto currency that has come to end poverty globally, the Billion coin is a paradigm shift, and it’s a belief and truth of the moment.
