All Boys! Tara Fela-Durotoye and Omoni Oboli and their Men

Posted in: , , ,

Some mothers do have them. And I mean this in the best absolute way. Both Omoni Oboli and Tara Fela-Durotoye shared pictures of their respective families recently and it struck me that they both had only sons, three each. Most women, I've heard, usually wish for a mixed brood, some girls to balance things out, and help in the kitchen - yes, some of us still think that way - or at least one girly girl to dress in pink with mummy. And some will keep trying till they get their wish... lol...

Did Natasha in Big Brother Africa actually use a Sex Toy?

Posted in: , ,

Now that I'm back in Seattle, I don't know if I can keep up with the Big brother Africa show, but this news I got in my email got me clicking over to go see the latest. Natasha from Malawi has been one of my favorites from the time they went into the house. She has a sunny disposition, and always cheerful. I actually predicted that she would last long but she was recently put up for eviction.

Couple Love - Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

Posted in: ,



Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban can never be found slacking on the red carpet and they are almost always together, supporting each other. Nicole is an actress and Keith is a musician, so you'll find them, receiving or presenting awards at such events as this one, the CMT awards. I love them, and hope they stay together.

Beauty Blogger Suffers Horrible Reaction to a Spa Facial

Posted in: , , ,

I have written before about how I take care of my skin [read post]. My skin is relatively free from acne and I rarely have to do more than wash, cleanse and or tone with regular skin care products. Sometimes, I buy and use creams for home facials, and while I've never had a spa facial, I've heard of them and a friend who has more of an acne problem uses them regularly.

A Blogger Wedding - Mamuje Goes To Zanzibar!

Posted in: , ,

Mamuje is the blogger at Tattletale Diaries, and in the typical Nigerian way, she recently held several wedding ceremonies to celebrate her marriage. One was her dream event, a destination wedding party for just a handful of guests. She chose Zanzibar, that beautiful Island off the East African coast. And I love that the culture of the location was fully embedded in the ceremony. She was gracious enough to share her pictures with RML. Enjoy!

Blast From the Past - Oba Ovonramwen of Benin

Ovonramwen with his wives and children

Ovonramwen Nogbaisi (ruled 1888–1897), also called Overami, was the Oba (king) of the Kingdom of Benin up until the British punitive expedition of 1897. I first read the story of Ovonramwen in a drama written by Ola Rotimi titled Ovonramwen Nogbaisi: An Historical Tragedy in English. It was a moving story, one of the few really historical books of that era. Now the internet puts some real faces to the names mentioned in the book, and makes the history real.
