Deola Sagoe looks so cute, you'll almost think the 25 years on the cover is her age and she is only celebrating her birthday. Kudos to her for sticking to her passion and business for so long and so well, and also for inspiring others very graciously.

7 Ways to Always Be a Lover to Your Husband

Posted in: ,

When you met your husband, and before he became your husband, it is very likely that you had some physical attraction to each other. Then you became lovers and everything was good. However, like so often happens, life happens, you get older, children come along, and you find that you're drifting away from each other, and you're more like friends, siblings or worse, housemates.

Are you wondering like me what is terrifying this couple and their bridal party and got them on the run? It is a giant dinosaur, you'll see the leg if you look closely, or you can check out the full image below.

The Von Trapps

If you grew up in the eighties in Nigeria, you probably watched the Sound of Music a gazillion times as a kid. Just like I did. If it wasn't the TV stations showing it every weekend, your family probably also had a VHS that was the default kids time video to watch. It is still one of my top ten movies of all time.

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...

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.
