Two Weeks After Bouri Weight Loss - Holding Steady

Posted in: , ,

Some of you may have followed my weight loss with the Bouari Advantage Spray and support from the Bellevue Clinic. Well, it was a 30 days programme and ended around February 25. Since then, I have tried to make sure that I did not gain back the 14 or so pounds I lost during that period. So far so good, I have actually lost a couple more pounds in the last two weeks. This is what I have been doing that seems to help;

Launching African High Street - A Dynamic Online Shopping Experience

Posted in:

Omosede, the founder of African High Street, contacted me sometime last year to inform me about her upcoming website and ask to stock my books. Of course, I was happy to do that, and it was with pleasure that I got her news that the website is now operational. This is her description of the site;

The First Things Ladies Notice about Men?

Posted in: ,

So I was reading Bombchell.com the other day and she had some pictures from the Arise Fashion Week in Lagos on her blog. She ran into the model from Rihanna's music video, We found Love, and she was describing how she was mesmerized by the guy's eyes. That got me thinking about what I notice first when I meet a guy, and generally what I've had friends and other ladies say they notice about guys. I also get drawn to eyes, and I can see how this guy's eyes would be a hit with the ladies.

India Arie: Brown Skin - Romance Meets Music

Posted in: ,
India Arie is one of my favorite American musicians among those who are at the edges of traditional R&B/Soul. I'm not gonna say much about this video except that I love the song and lyrics even more. It reminds me of a poem I wrote some time ago titled "You are my Poem"

Invisible Children KONY 2012 and Ugandan Journalists - My thoughts

Posted in: ,
With the forthcoming American elections and all, when you see the first part of my title, you would think that was someone running for office, right? Well, you would be wrong. You may already have seen the video below or not, it has just gone viral in the last couple of days and was trending on Twitter. But as much as I think I'm plugged in, I missed it until Atala called my attention to it this morning. Kony is a rebel leader in Northern Uganda with a guerilla group under the name the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) and has been operating for the past almost 30 years now. Of course I've heard about them, either in books, fiction, or snatches in the news. Somehow, the leader's name never stuck. Until now. Thanks to the video below.

Christianity and Sex - What is a Young Lady to Do?

Posted in: , , , ,
I got this email recently from a reader, and she agreed for me to share. Please forgive the text speak.

Myne, good evening. I'm writing cos I need advice from you. I'm a doctor in my mid-twenties, doing my NYSC. I wanna get wedded like almost all my friends, but I'm having some issues. I wanna ask you, when you met Atala, before the wedding, did you kiss and cuddle and  touch all the time?

I had a very good relationship which ended about 3yrs ago, and  the touching was part of the reason it gave way. We did almost everything but penetration, andI felt so guilty after each time. He knew, and tried to hold back but the sparks btw us alwaiz flew, andwe'd stl touchn and doing stuff. Finally, I told him not to visit me anymore, gave a flimsy reason then of writing my exams, and didn't want to be disturbed.

South Africa has apologized over Nigerian Deportations

Posted in:
From the tone of the South African Minister and the said apology, it seems Nigeria got the upper hand, and SA is eating humble pie, according to this report - South Africa apologizes over Nigerian deportations, faults airport health officials - The Washington Post,

I do hope that even as the two countries have ended the impasse, the Nigerian government, especially our Ministry of Health will come away with some lessons, and use this opportunity to beef up our Health Systems as regards vaccination and reporting and information systems. Maybe in future, some of us would be more wary of cutting corners too.
