DIFFERENT TYPE OF KIDS YOU’LL FIND IN A NIGERIAN CLASS



A peek into a classroom in any given children school in Nigeria will reveal different kinds of kids and interesting things they are known for. Most adults today can admit that they fell into some of these categories while growing up. Take a look: 

CHAI TANG LAGOS | MY EXPERIENCE

I've been hearing about Chai Tang Chinese Restaurant since they opened at the Twin Water Towers in Lagos a few months ago and I had the opportunity to visit lately. I thought it would be the perfect time for a review since I was going with my family. I've read reviews online and the seen the hype on social media so I was looking forward to this experience. If you want to know if Chai Tang is worth your money (because dinning there is not peanuts) then watch my review to the end, I have something to share with you.

ONE MORE PLATE IN OUR HOME

If you've been following on Instagram on YouTube you may have seen our big news, it's not a secret anymore. There will be a new plate on our dining table soon and we are all so excited! I had the idea to tell it by having a picnic because my son has been begging me to go on a picnic for a long time (but now he's changed his mind because of the bugs and sandflies at the park LOL).

Exciting times!

BEEF STIR FRY VEGETABLE


If you're looking for a quick vegetable sauce that you can enjoy with yam, rice or (my preferred pairing) Spaghetti, then try this Beef Stir Fry. It takes less than 15 minutes to cook and always delicious!

BACK TO SCHOOL HAUL - BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

I know the kids are back-in school and I should have shared this with you waaaaaaaaaay before school started but one of my nicknames is lastminutemommy LOL so even though I made this video showing you what I bought for my son for school, I never shared it on my blog. What a Wawu! Please SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel because that is where my videos get posted before it gets here :D . Am I forgiven? LOL Thank you. If you want to see what I got for my son from Jumia for back ti school then please watch this video (Great prices and delivery was so easy!)

I TRIED KRISPY KREME'S LOW SUGAR DOUGHNUTS!

By now most of you have probably been to the Krispy Kreme stores in Lagos right? They have two stores currently, one at Ikeja City Mall and the second store at Bishop Aboyade Cole Street Victoria Island, Lagos. Upon entering any of the Krispy Kreme stores, you are greeted with a wide display counter of their beautiful doughnuts you can hardly resist. The display was full and tantalizing and you always feel you want to have it ALL but you think about your waistline.

I know a lot of people have gone on about how the Krispy Kreme doughnuts are too sweet, myself inclusive and I hoped there would be a low sugar variety which I am very happy that they have that now so I decided to give it a try.

COME INSIDE MY NEW KITCHEN | A NIGERIAN TOUR

Hello lovelies, hope you are having a fantastic October so far? It has been a different kind of start for me into my month (October 19th baby here) and I am grateful for all the challenges and changes; some positive, some negative. On a positive note, I moved houses and you know what that means? A new kitchen! I lived in my previous house for two years and never showed you around the kitchen because I was trying to get it perfect for a tour but I have come to see that "done is better than perfect".  The tour never happened. LOL. So now, before I procrastinate because I want to decorate to my taste, I want you to be the first to have a look around my new kitchen because that is where the magic will happen going forward. Let me know what you think!

CELEBRATE 81 YEARS WITH KRISPY KREME!

This week, Krispy Kreme is celebrating 81 years and they are making it really huge. They’re giving out dozens of free doughnuts and making a massive birthday cake, among other side attractions.

5 GOOD REASONS YOU NEED TO TRAVEL MORE

One of the best pieces of advice I've ever received is: "all you people do in this Lagos is look for money. Don't forget to enjoy life o!" It was such short, impromptu counselling, but it stuck on mind like glue. Even if you live in a slower-paced town/part of the world than Lagos, it's so easy to get caught up in everyday life (and the monotony of it) that you forget there is more to living.

As you probably know, travelling is one of my favourite things to do. Aside from it being a time of refreshment for me, I also find that opening yourself up to new experiences, from time to time, has several benefits. Before you sigh because you think you can't afford 'that travel life', or just can't get the time off, this is why you need to do it more often:

WHERE I ATE TODAY IN LAGOS | BLACKBELL BISTRO
