Satisfaction in This Season

Happy Thursday. y’all! Is it just me or did the week fly by really fast. No scratch that; the year itself has been flying by so fast! The year is already halfway gone and we’re all evaluating to see what we’ve achieved since the year begun. For some of us, we are disappointed with where…

Bridge to Haven

Remember when I said last week that I couldn’t put Francine Rivers’ Bridge to Haven down? I wasn’t kidding. I finished this book last Friday night…I know I know, blame it on the nerd life 😀 and I’m officially a huuuuge fan. Bridge to Haven tells the story of Abra, a baby girl found under…

Body Language and You

Happy Thursday, fam! Today’s TED talk is focused on body language and how our non-verbal cues affect the things we do every day. From politicians to doctors to our neighbors, we find ourselves interpreting the body language of others and what we think they are saying. A lot of times, we don’t really need to…

My Summer Reading List

So thanks to EURO 2016 or COPA America or something like that on Saturday, Obim jejely declined to go see Central Intelligence with me.

But I guess we are so used to gaining useful information from reading books that we often forget that there’s a lot to learn from magazines as well. Yes ladies, I know you have a yearly subscription to Essence…

Money Management 101

Let’s face it, talking about money makes people uncomfortable. At work, church, wherever. Money is a touchy subject that requires a whole lot of caution to discuss. As women, we are faced with various challenges when it comes to income and finances. In the US, there’s still the discussion about equal pay going on. In…

Learn a New Language

I’m very delighted to say that I’m multilingual i.e. I speak three languages: English, Igbo, and Nigerian Pidgin! Yes fam, Nigerian Pidgin is a language on its own, but that is not why we are here lol. My B.A. is in Linguistics so I got into languages a bit. In the two years I spent in…
