GRANDFATHERED (Creator/Writer, Daniel Chun; Director/Executive Producer, Chris Koch; Executive Producer, Dan Fogelman) is a sophisticated show about Jimmy Continue Reading

3 Simple Hair Hacks For Any Kind Of Hair


My dream hair is the one that I never, ever, EVER have to touch and yet it stays fabulous 100% of the time. I'd also like to imagine a new hairstyle and have it magically appear on my head. Alas, that is not possible. Yet. So, for now, I have devised a plan. Well, three plans hacks. These hacks have been a tremendous help to me and my peace of mind: 1. Just let your hair be: It's really tempting to dye it today, flatten it tomorrow, trim it next tomorrow, and braid it on the fourth day. Continue Reading

What Are Your Actual Thoughts On Abortion?


I woke up on Sunday morning and read an article on Huffington Post (that I now cannot find) about late term abortion. Recently, abortions - especially late term abortions - have been popular in the news. If you had asked me eons ago how I felt about abortion, I would have been very quick to give you an answer. I would have said, it's a sin ... don't do it ... it's murder ... I would never do it. And if you had asked me how I felt about late term abortion, I would have said very, very quickly Continue Reading

How To Manage Your Weight Deliciously

Fiber One Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I know, I know, weight management and delicious don't usually appear in the same sentence, but trust me, they can. Sometimes, the words 'weight management' send shivers down our spine because what is that all about anyway? I don't know about you, but for me, I just want to eat and enjoy the food without having a mental fight about how many calories the food is and how long it will take me to walk it off. A while ago, I told you about the strawberry cheesecake bars from FiberOne, but I did Continue Reading

Hunger Is Us. All Of Us.


I have never seen anyone coming to America and thinking that there is something as ludicrous as hunger in America. America, the land of milk and honey? No way. Everyone is happy and well fed here. And that's exactly what I thought too. I thought that everything was great here. I'll never forget that day I saw my former high school mate begging on the street. It's an image and an experience that I am yet to forget. He was all American. Not a naturalized citizen, but a born one, from two Continue Reading

I Finally Launched My Business

Thank You

I told you briefly about this in my July journal, but now, I'll tell you more. Something wonderful and amazing happened to me at the Prudential Panel at the BlogHer15 conference. Before the panel started, I was a nervous wreck, as I always am when I'm about to speak in front of people. But it's a good kind of nervous wreck, I think. I do not go into a panic attack, nor do I pass out or just bolt. But I'm nervous about sitting or standing there with everyone looking at me. What if I make a Continue Reading

Do You Use An Anti-Wrinkle Cream?

L'Oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream Moisturizer & Night Cream

I remember when I was about 15 or 16 years old and I used to break out. I tried some products, but none of them really made any difference. Plus, I was never really faithful with them. So after a while, I just quit them all. It was years later that I realized that all those blemishes had magically erased themselves.  That's what happens when you're a teenager. I am no longer a teenager, so my skin isn't the same. I do not have a pimple problem, and I do not have wrinkles either, but Continue Reading

Will Smith Has A Terrible Nigerian Accent In Concussion And Nigerians Are Catching Feelings


There's a new movie coming out in December, called Concussion. The star of the movie is Will Smith, and he's playing the life of Nigerian forensic pathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu who was the first doctor to discover the disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in NFL players. It's a disease that's gotten from constant trauma to the head. When he first discovered the disease (after doing an autopsy on Pittsburgh Steelers center, Mike Webster), the NFL basically shut him out and accused him of Continue Reading

With Fiber One, You Can Snack Deliciously

Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bar

I met and fell in love with Fiber One some years ago when my mom had what seemed to be an unnatural addiction to fiber. It was as if she just rediscovered it. The house was full of everything Fiber One, and both mom and I used to fight for the last bit of cereal. Years later, I'm still not over Fiber One, which is why I couldn't wait to dig in when I had the opportunity to eat some snacks. Speaking of snacks, the struggle! Is there anyone who does not need to snack? If so, tell me your Continue Reading

Dear Nigerians, What Is It With You And Party Food?

Jollof rice

Obviously, I cannot count how many Nigerian parties/events I have attended in my lifetime, but there's something that happens at all of them: the food craze. This craze does not transfer to non Nigerian food though, only the Nigerian one. For example, I remember attending a wedding where they served all Nigerian food, like mashed potatoes, baked salmon, green leafy salad, and no rice, and the guests were visibly unsatisfied and disapppointed. We all know that no Nigerian party is complete Continue Reading
