48 Hours In Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria

During the October Independence long weekend holiday, I dragged my friend along on a road trip from Lagos to Ekiti State. The journey was unexpectedly long and tiring, we even considered going back to Lagos halfway through the journey. At a point, I got scared and had to call fellow blogger Tosinto find out if she had the same experience on her frequent trips to the area. I’ve tried to do a brief breakdown in case you ever want to visit the area, I also listed all the places we visited and put the info of our helpful cab driver; Mr Deji who took us round the town.

Get Fuller Edges in 2 Minutes With Toppik

If like me you’re always in a constant hide and seek game with your edges, this post would show you how to get fuller edges in two minutes! Earlier this year, I posted my progress with my edges after sticking to my scalp massage regimen, then I got this not-so-great idea to get braids done and all my hard work went down the drain. I heard of hair fibers in 2013 but the price was outrageous at that time; about 15 000 Naira. I came across it recently again and finally decided to give it a try!

Restaurant Review: Peppercorn Avenue

I’m always on the lookout for new places to eat in Lagos and my friend J has become my accomplice/ partner-in-crime on these hunts. I came across Peppercorn Avenue on LostInLagos, they are the plug for discovering new places to hang out in Lagos. We went at night and got lost because I’m totally clueless when it comes to directions and we forgot to use Google Map but we found our way back there in no time.

Road Trip from Lagos, Nigeria to Accra, Ghana

I’ve always wanted to travel to Accra, Ghana via road for the longest time. I’ve tried planning a trip with my mum (who was adamant about using flight, so cancelled) and different group of friends but it always got cancelled due to one reason or the other. When I saw that Cassie was planning a trip to Ghana, I decided to jump on it, after going back and forth and nearly cancelling, we did it!

DIY: Activated Charcoal Mask

If you’re “hip” and keep up with latest beauty trends (if you’re not, don’t worry I’m struggling too), you might have noticed that DIY activated charcoal masks made with glue are the new thing right now. I don’t know who launched this trend but I would never use glue on my face or advise anyone else to. I had to look for a better alternative to glue and share my experience before we all got dragged under. There are numerous benefits of activated charcoal including teeth whitening and underarm lightening but we’ll be focusing on the skin benefits in this post.
