In a world of skinny jeans, skinny pants, and skin tight, these wide leg pants are a breath of fresh air. I know most people see them as old fashioned or are simply not confident enough on how to pull them off but I assure you that they are the bomb.

I love to braid my hair. I think it is one of the most flattering styles for my face after the bohemian weave. I actually hate sitting to do the braids as I love them tiny but it is something that I have come to endure with looking good.The funniest thing happened when one of my male friends saw someone with braids tinier than mine take off her hair. He was stunned. I remember what he said, ‘You mean this is available and you would still sit for hours?’ I understand his frustration, but I don’t know if braided wigs have won me over just yet. However, I do appreciate how handy they come.

I am not sure you have not seen this movie. It was the funniest movie I had watched in ages. I mean I forced a guy to see the movie with me. At first, he was uncomfortable because the theatre was filled with women and it was packed full. WE could only spot a few sprinkles of men in the crowd. He complained at first saying I forced him to watch a chick film but when the movie started I heard him sniggering in his seat till it graduated to full laughter.

I honestly cannot over estimate the wonders of water on your skin. I am sure you have heard countless times that our bodies are made up of 80% water so we definitely need water to keep refreshed and nourished.

Now there are two major ways you can experience the wonders of water on your skin. They are pretty obvious but you can indulge in this free (well not so free considering utility bills and packaged water) natural goodness by hygiene and drinking it.

Nothing beats a refreshing shower after a hot, sticky day or a warm soothing bath even on cold days.

I should tell you what a shift dress means to me. It is my go-to choice when I want to attend an event and feast. Shift dresses are the bomb, they may look boring at first because it is just one simple item of clothing. I tell you though, if the bust and shoulders fit, you are good to go.

There are many reasons why you should wear shift dresses but I will start with one of my reasons.

As I write this, I am in my office contemplating a large plate of Ofada rice with plenty orisirisi and a chilled bottle of cola. I looked down at my belly and I knew that would be the worst decision especially as I am not hungry, I just want to snack.

This would not be a serious article if we were not Africans. It is really difficult living in the times we are in right now. Most people have been exposed to western culture either through the media or travels and experiences.
