I’m so sorry I’ve been inactive for so darn long! I’ve been busy with school *life of a law student*. Anyway I am back and I feel invigorated to continue writing. So apart from school the economic situation in this country don’t tire me. My pocket money was slashed to a point that I don’t know how I will live extra comfortably (I’m still living comfortably) anyway sha God dey. Anyway i  thought that school stress would make me lose some pound but guess what it didn’t werk, I’m bigger than I’ve ever been. So I’m currently on the lookout for ways to lose weight *healthy ways* someone recommended green tea but it didn’t work for me so I’m still on the lookout and please I would like some one to recommend something for me. I don’t have access to a gym because of the location of my school.
Do have a lovely weekend beauriful people.

On Friday the 13th of Nov, Paris witnessed a catastrophic incident where 130 people between the ages 17-63 died and many scared and wounded for life in 3 separate attacks carried out by terrorists. Their deaths has left their families traumatised and the French government is still doing everything to bring those terrorists to justice.
  I find it very touching how the French people united in the fight against terrorism and how they paid their respect and love to those that died even in death. Life can’t stop just because of the crazy beliefs of some fanatics, let’s all rise up and fight this hatred, this fanaticism to subdue people.
  The Nigerian government particularly the National Assembly should work hard and put in place resolutions that would be in the interest of the unity of Nigeria and also in defending groups with ideologies that differs from our national and socio-cultural ideologies. We (Nigerians) should honor victims who have been killed in the various crusades carried out by Boko haram. Lastly, leaders of the Muslim communities and Imams should rise up to the occasion and counsel the congregation particularly the youths of the dangers of joining these terrorist  groups.

   Now here’s the deal…most celebrity clothiers and accessory manufacturers want to create awareness or advertise their products to put it better. Because of the fact they hire certain individuals from agencies to model these products either on the runway or in photo shoots. Hence modelling has become a mainstay for anyone who wants the world to acquaint themselves with their products. Having started in Europe,modeling has since crossed the European boarders into the shores of Africa,Asia, Australia and even the middle east.
   Using Africa as a case study we can observe that modelling has taken a toll on us Africans in the sense that most Africans are not skinny,In fact most are meaty or plump,whether male or female. As such for an average African to fit Into the conventional interpretation of a model he or she must undergo several days,weeks or probably months of starvation to get that slim figure which poses a threat to the otherwise proper functioning of the body.
   And that is for the few who make the cut,there are others who after this display of extreme weight loss still don’t get selected for the pageants or shoots,thus making such an individual feel that he or she hasn’t lost enough weight to fit into such profile. Well I will humbly suggest that African clothiers who are aware of the fact that we can’t get slim without running the risk of malnutrition tailor their clothes to suit the silhouettes we are familiar with.
   I will also advice the international brands to ease up on the streamlined clothes. Face it most people are not slim and therefore should not be made to feel like they posses an inferior body shape.

Each time they turn on fashion channels. Do u agree with me?

  The clause I Am suggests that one is constant, consistent and evergreen. It means that one currently exists and will continually exist, he will not cease to exist at any point.
   So when God said to Moses in Exodus 3:14, He wanted Moses to know that the never ending God has called him to deliver His people. God never changes, He will never cease to exist, He remains God come rain, come shine.
   I Am can also be referred to as a state of being. A position where one places himself either as hopeful action or as reality. I am great ,I am beautiful, I am wonderfully made, I am successful, I am blessed. These are just a few adjectives we should learn to address ourselves as. Because one’s words shape one’s destiny. Although the actualization of such destinies entail more than mere words,it is our words however that will inspire the necessary action needed to actualize our ambitions. Words like these enable us appreciate the various qualities which God has bestowed on us all and let’s us understand that ultimately it’s how we see ourselves that matters and not other’s perception of us. So speak these words today and follow them up with actions to bring these words to reality

DIY: okro as Hair conditioner

image
Whaaat?! Why would anyone put that in their hair…? I decided to surf the internet when I bumped into a blog that stated that Rastafarians used it to make their dreadlocks and keep them healthy. Also, regular use will make your hair healthy and creates great curl definition. So as the newbie naturalista that I am, I decided to try it out.
—————————————————-
Ingredients
– A handful of okro
– An oil of your choice (I used olive oil)
–  A very small pot or saucepan
– A strainer with tiny holes
– An empty plastic bottle
—————————————————
Method
1. Wash the okro with lots of water.
2. Cut the okro horizontally (do not chop or grate) and put in the very small pot.
3. Add one and half cup of water. Let it boil at medium heat.
4. Let it simmer for about 12-15 minutes until it’s slimy and secretes mucilage, stir occasionally.
5. Let it cool off and use a strainer/sieve to separate the okro seeds from the slime( let it cool for about 7-10 mins, if you wait for it to cool too much it may get too thick and difficult to strain)
6. Add the oil to the slimy. substitute and pour in a bottle. Shake very well every time you use it.
As a rinse out conditioner, you may want it  thicker, as a leave-in conditioner, thinner is better.
Don’t fret people okro doesn’t leave any after effects horrible smell, it rather had a neutral smell.
Please!!! Do not add salt. This home made conditioner can be stored in the fridge and used up within 3 or 4 days.
