Face And Body By Shea Moisture & Nubian Heritage

Shea Moisture Facial Products

Most people know Shea Moisture and Nubian Heritage for their natural hair products, but did you know that they also make awesome natural beauty products, too? I'm talking body, face, make-up, and even make-up brushes. I want to tell you today about some facial products from Shea Moisture and some soaps (and lotion) from Nubian Heritage. Like most people, I first knew about Shea Moisture because of my natural hair. But I later discovered that they are much more than hair. I have tried several Continue Reading

The Best Man Holiday Movie Is The Best, Man!

Image source: The Best Man Movie Website

So Igwe and I went to see The Best Man Holiday on Saturday night. We decided at about 3pm that we would go see the 9:15pm movie at AMC Loews, White Marsh. I don't usually like seeing movies this late (old age oh!), but because I was already tired (you know The Verastic Show comes up on Saturdays) and needed a nap, I decided for 9:15 pm. We bought the tickets from Fandango. We got to the theater at 8:40 pm, and would you believe that there was already a line??? By the time the line started moving Continue Reading

We’re The Millers: Go Watch It

We're The Millers

This past Saturday, I went on a movie date with Funmie and her sister, Seun. If I had gone alone, I would have seen Wolverine (can't believe I've still not seen it, considering he's my favorite X-Man and favorite Aussie). But Funmie wanted a feel-good movie (and knew nothing of the movies that were in the theater), so I chose We're The Millers. I like Jennifer Aniston, so I'll most likely see anything she's in. Before going to see this movie, I knew it was a funny movie, but I did not Continue Reading

Restaurant Review: Milan

My food

Location: 1000 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21202 Date Visited: Sunday, January 22nd 2012 He and I are fond of going to random places, just for the heck of it. And with the birth of GroupOn and Living Social, experimenting has gotten that much easier. So, sometime last week, he bought a five-course meal coupon from GroupOn for Milan Restaurant. Neither of us had ever eaten there. Two years ago, I was there to honor a friend's birthday dinner invitation, but I was late, so I never ordered Continue Reading

Book Review: A Love Rekindled by Myne Whitman

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

Let me not lie to you. When I started reading this book, I thought it had a slow start. But I kept reading nonetheless.  Also, I frequently forgot to check the date of the chapter I was reading: 1999 or 2009? And so, I found myself getting a bit confused and having to go back and forth to remember what year the time machine of this book had taken me to. But that didn't last for long at all. Continue Reading

Book Review: Can I Be Real? By Ekene Onu

I've never really read a book like this. But when Ekene Onu gave me her book - even before it hit the market - I was honored [and giddy!]. After answering the question that the title of the book asks, "Can I Be Real?" I attacked the words, head on. Or eyes on. A book with 82 pages. It's not huge. You can read it all in one sitting, but the lessons, if you let them, will last forever. Ekene writes honestly and passionately in a way that makes her vulnerable, so that you can see right through Continue Reading

Book Review: The Only Way Is Up by Folake Taylor

Relationships, health, spirituality, culture shock, family, career. These are a few of the things that Folake Taylor, MD addresses in her book, The Only Way Is Up. If you know me, even only a little bit, then you'd know that my most interesting chapter was the one about relationships. They [relationships] are so dynamic. So complicated. So intricate. And so, so rewarding --- all things being equal. Continue Reading

Book Review: Oil, Politics, And Violence by Max Siollun

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

When I got this book, I was terrified. The two hundred and fifty-five pages, the title of the book (Oil, Politics, and Violence), and what seemed like a smaller than normal font that hugged the white pages, it all terrified me. When will I finish this book? The book wasn't about fictional characters with dynamic personalities. It wasn't a book with a plot full of suspense or drama. It was a book based on facts. Political facts. Nigerian political facts. Nigerian political facts on Continue Reading

Book Review: A Heart To Mend by Myne Whitman

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

Edward, Edward, Edward. Edward is a character that a lot of women may have met (and probably disliked). He's a man who's got it all: money, looks, some fame --- and an icy cold heart toward love. But somewhere in that icy cold heart is a volcano of love, just waiting to erupt. So, maybe he'd rather fall in love without involving his emotions ... what gives? People don't just become this way. Edward did not just become this way. Somewhere along the line, something happened to him. Continue Reading
