AKARA ! (PICTORIAL)

DSC_0070

Hello!

Hope your weekend went awesome! Mine was quite eventful. I woke up on Saturday morning craving Akara i.e Bean cake. You all know my love for pap i.e Ogi, and I think there is nothing more satisfying than Pap with any bean delicacy; Ranging from moi-moi, palm oil beans or bean cake. So I decided to go with the latter. The cooking is quite easy, but the preparation process is the main task. You have to soak the beans for a minimum of 4hours then peel off the brown part/skin, before you blend and fry. I would make a video later this week on it for my YouTube community, but a lot of blog readers in Nigeria complain about videos and the internet struggle there, so here is a step by step pictorial for you lovelies! Do enjoy!

Have an awesome week ahead!

LALALE TUESDAY!

IMG_3946Hello all,

So it seems almost everyone was born in October with all the birthday celebrations going on around me. Last night was my friend Roseline’s birthday, I think i’ve mentioned her in one or two posts on the blog. Last night was lovely, we went to a hotel restaurant to have dinner then headed out to a bar after. I also met new people which is always nice, and got to meet more Africans in my age group, I wonder where they’ve been hiding through out the year lol. Food was good, music was good , and for a tuesday night the turnup was great . Everyone had a blast. I wore a Jumpsuit which I would put up details in the next post. Below are pictures from the

CATCH ME ON EBONYLIFE TV!

Hello beautiful people!
I’d be showing on Ebonylife TV on the ‘blog it’ segment! You can watch me this morning at 11:30am for those who missed the 5:30/8:30pm broadcast last night. I was feeling bad I couldn’t watch it from here, but thanks to technology I got to view the show!

My amazing friend Kemi A.k.a Peachy Kemog (Remember her wedding post HERE) watched it and tuned me in via Skype (she literally turned her phone to the Tv). I was so excited! My family is here currently so we all watched it together. I don’t think I would ever get used to it lol.

I’d be showing once Every week till year end so you can catch me every Tuesday/wednesday at 5:30 pm, with reruns at 8:30pm, 11:30pm and 11:30am the next day on EL NOW, Channel 165 DSTV.

Do watch and feel free to tweet at me when you do!

Oh yes! Today is also a great day! Happy independence to a great country Nigeria! Hope you’re enjoying the public holiday! God bless Nigeria!

GRWM+OOTD:SUMMER EDITION

DSC_0008 Hello! the weather has been so lovely out here, and almost getting quite hot! I was ranting earlier today on how I needed suggestions on a good sunscreen for dark skin (please if you have a brand you’ve tried & tested kindly let me know). My outfit today was casual, and I wore jeans which I haven’t worn in a while… My top had an exposed back, but thank God for designers who produce creative under-wears. (If curious, I’m wearing a bra with a clear strap, and you can buy one here , Debenhams or at Victoria Secret). I also filmed a “Get ready with me” video on my look/makeup, 3minutes long. Watch & Enjoy.

Top: Floock

Jeans: New Look

Bag: Prada
