Different shea butter makers use different methods to process their shea butter and that doesn't make it fake. The shea butter made from the fruits of African butter tree tends to

ONLINE BUSINESS OWNERS! STOP ASKING BUYERS TO INBOX YOU FOR PRICE!

Or you want customers to inbox so you check their status before naming price? Displaying goods online and asking customers to inbox you for price is bad for business. When you display your goods Online, know that you have gone Worldwide and shouldn't bring that Naija price haggling/bargaining style to it.  When you enter a supermarket and see goods displayed, do you go looking for the manager to ask the price of what you want?  Stop it please!

"NO BUSH, NO LAWN, NO FOREST" HUSBAND RESPONDS TO SM QUESTION

Image
SEE HOW YOUR HUSBAND RESPONDED TO A SIMPLE QUESTION?At the end of this short walk if you are still not convinced that a tarred road is better than a shrub, bush or a forest, then you are on your own. Some wives are too busy in our Businesses, offices, kitchen and aso-ebi area to tend to the forest growing all around the compound. Do you know that forests can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes, snakes and other reptiles? Some women like forests growing around their beautifully structured architectures but it's not all about you dear sis. Have you bothered to know what daddy likes? Reading the comments below, you'll see that most men prefer driving their exotic cars on well tarred roads without bumps caused by tree stumps and all that. 

Imagine boarding an aircraft headed to Murtala Mohammed Airport Lagos, and the pilot ends up landing in a bush just around the Airport, how would you describe that? It's a crash!. Perfect landing is experienced on a smooth tarmac in an air…

HOW TO MIX EGG AND MILK FOR DRINKING

Image
Double Protein Egg and Milk Drink is a favourite for bodybuilders. I want to take it not necessarily trying to build but to see if I can get more toned at least. Even as a child growing up, we have heard of people drinking raw eggs or mixing them with evaporated milk and grudgingly swallowing. I will not take this without sharing my feelings about eating or drinking raw eggs. Eggs consumed raw are not safe sometimes. The best way to eat eggs and get all the benefits is not by taking them raw. Yoiu could get infected with Salmonella (Google it). You don't want to expose yourself to infections while trying to boost protein levels. Aside

HOW TO RECOGNIZE MY DEPRESSION AND TIPS TO HELP ME

Image
When you feel sad for a long period of time,  you fall deep into that pit of sadness that seem unending. You feel so tired and uninterested in activities and things that used to be fun. Depression is a mental disorder that can be helped if you recognize it fast and visit a hospital. There are medications (drugs) for depression and taking them doesn't mean that you are a mad woman. It means that you recognize that just as the eyes and other body parts fall sick and get treated, mentally too, we can break down and fall sick and will need some medications to help just the way we need paracetamol for body aches and pains.

Depression, if left untreated, unattended to. If ignored may not necessarily kill you or someone but can lead you

Dress to kill him at home, not outsiders, not house uniform everyday

Image
DRESS TO KILL YOUR MAN AND NOT OUTSIDERS. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE GOING OUT BEFORE CARING ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK! Let him return from work and meet you looking sweet and refreshed.  Ok, you as a woman, when your husband dresses well and looks good, don't you feel something? When your husband is very careless and unkempt with his looks, do you like it? Not to talk of men that are well wired to be moved by what their eyes see whether at home or abroad. See, It's very easy for very busy mums especially full time housewives to start depending on robes,  boubou,  big gowns and all kinds of lose and free clothing because that's what keeps you comfortable considering you are not going to any office or attending an event. Eventually that daily same look becomes a lifestyle. 

Sharon O, in the enlightening post below, encourages women too look their best even at home.  A lot of women have lost their homes because they did not pay attention to their looks, they got so carried away with ca…
