I’m bringing this series back, because in this Made in Nigeria dispensation, there is a lot to love and share.
Let’s start with the only non-Nigerian item on the list. I got this from a Woolworth’s in Johannesburg. It is for brewing tea and y’all know I love my tea! The bottom bit (the green part) is where the tea bag goes.I particularly like this because there is no wet tea bag to deal with. Plus I can extract more from my teabag this way.
Why do I like this so?
- Made from Glass. If you struggle with hormonal issues, e.g. fibroids, you have absolutely no business eating/drinking hot things from non BPA free plastic. There are plastic bits but those are BPA free.
- It is a 19oz bottle so you get good capacity while the slimness of the bottle means that it can slip into a decent sized handbag or punchbag without taking much space. Be careful to ensure that you have closed it properly…I had a spill in my much loved bag last week 🙁
- It has a cork sleeve so you can still hold the bottle while it has hot liquid in it.
- It comes in pretty colors.
- The environment! Glass is more environmentally friendly.
This is a brand close to my heart. Very close, as this company is owned by my sister and I. This is a toxic chemical free, handmade cosmetic line. We’ve released the eyeshadows and lipsticks b but before the end of the year, more items will be added. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag, just expect that there will be more information soon. Good Information that will make make-up lovers in the natural community (and outside of it) very happy.
So if you are into
- Pigmented make-up
- Make-up that is Toxic Chemical Free
- Make-up that is made from plant materials and nourishing butters and oils
- Supporting Made In Nigeria brands
Then you need look no further.
All the items are made in Lagos, Nigeria. No custom manufacturing. 100% us. Skin healthy ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Hyaluronic Acids and more are used in formulating the various make up lines so you look good while nourishing your skin. Since I have some insight into the back end, I can tell you that are a lots more plant materials brewing which will find their way into even more products.
The website is being worked on, but please follow us on Instagram to get up to date information.
You can place orders for the items in the picture. To place your orders, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
LOSE IT NIGERIA!
After months of procrasination, I finally bought the Lose It Nigeria (LIN) eBook from 9jafoodie. I have followed her blog since the very very early days and have been a recipient of all the free knowledge she has been doling out for years. That is not the reason why I bought the LIN eBook though. I did this because I figured that if she could have been giving quality information out for free all these years, anything she puts a price to would be top notch. Let’s just say she did not fall my hand (disappoint) me.
LIN is delivered with a lot of visuals, step by step recipes, a background on why certain foods works. Each recipe is broken down so that the calorific information is presented as well as the Macros. Best of all, 95% of the items are local Nigeria fare so you can eat your darling Nigerian foods and still keep your figure.
It is arranged nicely so that you can find snacks, breakfast options, swallow e.t.c fairly easily. There is also some flexibility so that you can create your own unique food table, Ronke of 9jafoodie says that by sticking with the program for 4 weeks, you will lose some weight.
I am still starting the program so I can’t speak to the weight loss but I love it so far!

And that is it for October! If there is anything you think I should check out, please send me an email and let me know! If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I lean heavily towards Made In Nigeria goods. They have to be in keeping with the essence of this blog to be featured.
