Tips For 2016 as three hundred naira exchanges for a dollar

By now, it should be clear to all of us that this year will be a difficult one and to survive it, you just have to start planning from Day one.
Be prepared to let go of some things and spend only when absolutely necessary. If you have saved money, try not to touch it quickly.
Avoid capital projects in the next few months until you are certain of replenishing your bank accounts.
Avoid social travels that bring no added income.
If attending a burial, wedding, naming ceremony, marriage anniversary will eat into your savings, avoid them. You would be called names, accept the name calling but understand that these same
people will call you worse names if you have to borrow from them to feed your family.

Reduce your responsibilities. Your first duty is to your family. If you don't provide for them, others will rarely do so.
Talk to your friends who are working not to bother asking

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini puts on a brave face in first public appearance since 'filing for divorce from husband' at gym launch

If you watch X Factor UK, then you know Cheryl Fernandez, sits beside Simon Cowell with Rita Ora to her right. Cheryl hasn't been pictured in public for over three weeks, although has been keeping her fans happy with several selfies on her Instagrams in recent days. Daily Mail reports that the X Factor judge attended the launch of the boutique boxing gym on Chelsea's King's Road after earlier enjoying a training session at the same venue. The new venture is owned by her PA Lily England's boyfriend, Shane Collins. Earlier on Thursday, she posted an Instagram of herself enjoying some boxing with Shane, writing: 'K O'd by Shane.'
The post followed Sarah Harding's television interview on Wednesday, during which she discussed the topic of Cheryl and Jean-Bernard's pending divorce after 18 months of marriage. Talking to the Loose Women panel, the 34-year-old said: 'I dropped her a text, but Cheryl's

Go for old school Hollywood glamour in an off shoulder gown like Lady Gaga's + Leonardo Dicaprio's Response

It's not often we see Lady Gaga wearing something we'd love to have hanging in our own wardrobes, but last night at the Golden Globes the pop star nailed it and we're seeing her in a whole new light. She was elegant and oozed old school Hollywood glamour in a fabulous off shoulder gown by Atelier Versace. It's a classic look and one that's easier to copy in the real world than some of the other showstopping numbers we saw on the red carpet. We love the structured tailoring of this dress and the slinky train. It must have been quite difficult to walk in but totally worth it for the dramatic effect. Atelier Versace is the couture end of the luxury fashion house so will require an appointment with the designer to recreate this exact look, so why not just shop our edit below instead?  Another image after the cut.

8 Sure Things That Happen To Your Body After You Birth A Baby

1. YOUR BREASTS WILL STAY HUGE... AND MAY HURT No surprise, new mothers have gigantic knockers. That's partially because they're constantly filling up with milk, but also because they're engorged from all the extra blood flow needed to transform your chest into a 24-7 dairy. What's shocking is that sometimes, when you produce more milk than what you can expel, the excess milk and blood flow can cause serious discomfort. This shouldn't last long, though

We hadn’t had sex for more than a year and the longer we left it, the higher

Bird Flu + Lassa Fever, Temperature Scanning Has To Start Again In Nigerian schools And All Public Places

Abuja records first Lassa fever death. Schools, supermarkets, Churches, hospitals and all public places in Nigeria took up the task of scanning before anyone is allowed into premises,  what happened to this good habit?

The Things We See Today, Won't Even Dare In The Days Of Elijah! Gunmen kidnap Redeemed Church pastor during service in Kogi, demand N50m ransom

Has God truly gone farther away from this planet because of sins and filth? In the days of old, honestly, fire will rain down as soon as these kidnappers step foot on the pulpit.  Is that God has become more loving and enduring than he used to be. You know when we read stories like this. I begin to prefer that instant action, that thunder and fire judgement we read from scriptures. 
People should fear what might happen if they try to commit crimes in CHURCH but No, whatever criminals can do outside,  they carry to church and are able to execute whatever without fear. The number of curses raining on them right now? Uncountable.  Will any ill supernaturally befall them to scare others who try committing crimes on sacred grounds? I don't know... However, in my mind's eye, I can see the man of God commanding fire and paralysis on those kidnappers and I see them frozen into pillars of salt. I wish.

Sunday Night Quote, Sleep On This

“Shift your focus away from what you want (a billion dollars) and get deeply, intensely curious about what the world wants and needs. Ask yourself what you have the potential to offer that is so unique and compelling and helpful that no computer could replace you, no one could outsource you, no one could steal your product and make it better and then club you into oblivion (not literally). Then develop that potential. Choose one thing and become a master of it.Choose a second thing and

A Rebellious Wife Is Like Witchcraft

Read Below:

My daughter, Today you have become a wife.

The position of a wife is that of great responsibility. It is the responsibility of a home builder.

A wise wife will build her home. A foolish wife will  destroy her home with her own hands.

My daughter, don't be a foolish wife. Don't be a rebellious wife..Rebellion is bad. It is like witchcraft.

Rebellion will cause strife in your home.
Strife will cause war in your home
War will destroy your home.

War will destroy all the good things that you have. War will destroy you.

Remember that no individual or community or nation can make progress during war
If there is No peace, there will not be progress... THAT IS THE RULE..

My daughter, if you want your home to progress, let peace reign.
Prayers will not help you if you're disobedient and contentious..

My daughter, seek peace.
My daughter, with everything inside of you, seek peace.

Experiencing Verbal Abuse In A Subtle Way

Hello Aunty Eya, Happy new year to you and the very handsome baby Chairman of the family, please help me post this mail on the blog; 
Honestly, verbal abuse is just as bad as physical abuse. Growing up, there were 5 siblings, I'm the middle kid. When I was a teenager, I noticed my father would decide not to talk to my mom for weeks or even months at a time. There was a time when my younger brother just under me asked my mom if our youngest sister was adopted since dad didn't talk to her whenever he was not talking to mom. Even now that we are all adults, I don't see my dad showing her affection like a father should. When I tried to ask him, he said he loves all his children equally that it's my brain playing games. 

 I felt so bad for my sis because the silent treatment from a parent is just as bad as verbal abuse IMO...I vowed I would never treat my children that way, and I didn't. Now that my

Why Am I Pregnant While Still A Virgin?

These mails from young, Pregnant virgin ladies asking me if it's possible to get pregnant without being disvirgined. I've always sent private replies without posting but I'm getting a bit worried and just thought to post this because they are becoming a bit more frequent. I always replied that fertilisation can take place if seen gets to the egg even without penetrative something. There was one lady that won't believe and kept asking more questions and finally I told her that if there was any foreplay around the veejayjay, even around the stomach, navel or thigh area, it's possible to get pregnant because semen is like liquid and can flow down without notice,  and once it touches the uvula, a little can escape in there and fertilise the baby to be egg and voila you are pregnant as a virgin.
