Benefits of eating Mangoes – Eat some today!

Mango eating benefit

I have made no secret of the fact that I am a H.U.G.E Mango lover. Probably came from spending Easters in my village (Osumenyi, kwenu!). That is prime Mango season so my siblings, cousins and I would spend hours in and around the massive tree just outside my grandfather’s house. Hours of just picking mangoes and eating mangoes.

Healing my skin from the inside and out

Brighter, Cleaner, Clearer Skin NigeriaI am feeling pretty proud of myself right now and so decided to write this post real quick. Forgive me if I ramble on a bit.

A few weeks ago, I had to tell myself the truth about my facial skin. It was congested, I had acne and rashes – two things I rarely ever experience. And lastly, my skin was not as bright as it used to be.  (more…)

Bathing Newborn Nigerian Babies

Traditional methods bathe a new Nigerian baby

Recently, while doing my Facebook rounds, I came upon a post by an African American who had posted pictures of her newborn being stretched, hung upside down and so on by a Chiropractor. The more I looked at those pictures, the more familiar the technique appeared to me.

  • Baby held upside down by her ankles.
  • Baby’s head pressed gently in a sort of massaging motion

  1. Quality
  2. Durability
  3. Price.

But these are not the only variables that should concern us. For a few people, the material that the pots and pans are made from also play a role. This is really important. If you have ever shopped for pots and pans, perhaps one of the most confusing things is the sheer varieties of materials available.

TRS “Gari” being sold in shops in Nigeria

Gari

Last weekend, the picture below started making its way around social media with a lot of people asking why NAFDAC would permit Garri to be imported into the country.

C’est fini! We need to find another whipping boy to blame for permitting this into the country.
