Things You Should Never Say To Your Nigerian Mum

Currently listening to kelhani – Distraction 


Hi Loves! Happy Sunday,How are you guys today? i’v never mentioned this on the blog and I don’t know why but I once wrote an article for beautygeekng it was on their instagram and website here.Fast forward to a couple of months later, they emailed me to write for them again, unbelievable right? Anyway i’m super excited and also down with malaria but that won’t stop today’s post which is about *drum roll* MUMS

Mums are the light of our lives and the pain in our asses to be honest. So I decided to do this post when I gave my mum the ‘i’m not a kid anymore’ line..but let’s just say, I shouldn’t have and then I remembered other things too and tagged them as the things you should never say to any Nigerian mum. 

I’m not a kid any more

I told my mum this one time, but I was grateful it was over the phone she went from sweet mum to mumzilla straight up. She told me to come and pack my things from her house( which is technically my father’s house) immediately, she told me how i’m ungrateful and how I don’t know how to appreciate her effort and made a huge fuss and even hung up

Leave me alone

​   

 OK o,you will be left alone and you should be ready to leave every meal alone. You’d starve to death. Even if she’s wrong you have no right .Has anyone noticed that it is the day you offend your mum she’ll cook something nice and feed your siblings till they blow up

i’m not going to get married


Haha! The king of them all..this one ehn!just expect a dirty slap accompanied with cry and a one-week deliverance, Let’s not forget fasting and prayer and! General Family meeting.

Shut Up

Just the thought of this one makes me laugh, I don’t know why anyone would ever want to say this cuz it’s automatic death, if you run to you neighbours house while she tries to beat you and they ask what happened if you mention it again, they’ll personally drag you there to be crucified.

I like daddy more

Best thing for you just keep this to yourself ,and if she knows just get to begging, call everyone you know to beg for you cause when she starts to drop the ‘dont worry’ ‘don’t enter my kitchen’ ‘your father will feed you’ ‘go and meet your father to buy the pen for you’ lines. You are just in soup

Can’t understand what i’m saying

You’re not even allowed to say this even if you’ve thought her how to change whatsapp dp or upload instagram pictures a million and one times

Stop sending me broadcasts on whatsapp

I once said this to my mum, til this day she never stops referring to it.i should have just kept quiet and enjoyed the broadcasts. She gave me the ‘it’s not your fault’ ‘I’ll send it to other children that will read it with joy’ and the ‘you don’t know the value of what you have until you lose it’ lines, just because of whatsapp broadcasts

2nd position isn’t that bad 

You’ll explain why you can’t come 1st right after she asks you if the person who came first has extra 500heads. If God is on your side you can play around but if not my dear, you’ll start reading for next session that day. And then you’ll tell her ‘what of the people that came last’, she’d slap you so hard, your ancestors will feel it.

I have a boyfriend 


Interpretation: prostitute..if your mum finds out about this one ehn, she’d call the whole family for an emergency meeting unfailingly the next morning, they’ll preach,pray,talk,yell, scream and they beg you not to let any man lie to you..sigh.
Where should I put it

Loool this one is the legendary question and ‘put it on my head’ answer..i don’t get why they can’t just say put it on the floor or the table

Bonus:Days when my mum would call me from upstairs to bring the TV remote infront of her

 Do you know anymore things you shouldnt say to a nigerian mum?

Do share in the comment section

 Until next Time

Ramadan 101 || Do’s and Don’ts of the Holy Month

Currently Listening To..nothing actually i have my ear phones plugged in but i’m not Iistening to anything besides the ‘click’sound of my keyboard 


Hi beauties, welcome to another blog post so today is going to be quite different..also I feel the need to do this, i’m sure no one can tell i’m Muslim..well I am, I try not to be controversial or all judge-y better yet i’ll just be quiet..but Ramadan is in a few days and i’m not readyyy *tears*..lol I don’t think anyone is but regardless i’ll like to remind everyone the do’s and don’ts of the holy month as I recently learnt too. 

​​

Do

Rushing to breaking the fast as soon as one is certain that sunset has commenced is recommended.

Break time: When it’s time for Maghreb prayer, break your fast on water, a few dates, or fruit juice, before praying Maghreb. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “People will always be at ease, as long as they haste to do Iftar [breaking fast when it is time for Maghreb].
At the time when you break your fast on that first sweet date, remember to make a supplication, to ask Allah for what you desire: Paradise, forgiveness, pardon, health, and wealth. 

Eat  Sahoor: Muslims are usually advised to eat the Sahoor or pre-dawn meal. The later in the night the better. Sahoor can be a light snack, such as a glass of milk and a few dates, a banana, or a cheese sandwich. Do eat Sahoor every night because this small meal gives the body important nourishment which will help one endure the long fast without experiencing physical weakness. The Prophet (PBUH) did say, “Have Sahoor for verily there is blessing in it.”


Do Good: In Ramadan, choose the best deeds, the recommended acts that you may have neglected throughout the year, and spread goodness. You can gain rewards by spending more time with your parents, visiting relatives, helping anyone in need whether it is through charity or by helping take care of problems he/she may be facing. The fasting person is like a fragrant rose; his pleasantness is sensed by and extended to those around him.

Feed others: Feeding others when it is time to break the fast, as Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “He who gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, will receive the same reward for fasting, except that nothing will be reduced from the fasting person’s rewards

Dont

1. Avoid drinking, smoking, and having sexual relations.
2. Abstain from blood cupping, blood withdrawal, and using ear drops or inhalers while fasting.
3. Do not listen to music rather occupy your heart with supplication, remembrance of Allah, and the Holy Qur’an.
4. Avoid wasting your time.


5. Abstain from idle talk, gossip, lying, quarreling, cursing, and anything that can be hurtful to someone else. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, Allah has no need of him giving up his food and drink.” (Al-Bukhari)
6. Do not over eat while breaking your fast.

7. Do not keep malice or hold grudges
Until Next Time.

Travel diaries: My Trip To Erinta WaterFall in Ekiti

Currently Listening To Julia Michael -issues (has anyone else heard it?)


Hi guys, Happy Sunday, How are you guys? Real quick tho, How many mother’s days are there? Cuz i’m sure we’ve had one already But still, Happy Mother’s Day to all our mums. We love you. 


Okay so today’s post is one i’ve been wanting to write since I knew we were going for the trip,i’ve been mentioning it in my previous posts here and here, it was amazing and super fun. oh also let me mention that the name confuses me a whole lot, i would have asked there but i thought it was Erinta not Arinta, i even googled it, it had both names so Erinta or Arinta it is.

P
.S there will be lots of pictures..mostly pictures,i also dont know how to go about this but i’ll try so let me explain *in kevin hart’s voice*

So we went from school (My school is in Osogbo,Osun state, Nigeria) 

Time: 1hour 45minutes – 2hours

so this is what the front looks like with the gate, i couldn’t get a better angle i was in the bus and i stretched my hands outside and used a timer

The gate fee- N500

this is the entrance to the waterfall..let me just quickly say the place is so hill-y and climb-y

Lol so here my friend was trying to teach me how to pose..omds its that bad. you can also see some of the people from school in the background

it’s super narrow and steep, so we had to be careful walking

The water from the Fall makes streams all the way to the end

this Huge tree fell across, so if you want to walk you go under it

The crowd you guys!! it was crazy on that narrow pathway, when i got tired of walking i wanted to cry cause i could not go back

i later went back alone to take some shots

i think there is a clearer view of the Fall now, Oh i remember this nice man apparently he and his group came from NOUN in Lagos, he saw me taking pictures and he posed for me

part of the fall

here’s the path to the fall, it’s smaller in real life yo! or smaller when there are many people going thought it

Part of the fall, see how high it goes

​​

ho my Gad, i dont know what i was doing here..lol

What do you guys think?, i had amazing time.

Until Next Time..

               Love,

Product Review||KissBeauty 3x Aloevera Makeup Fix and Ushas Bronzer

Currently I am listening to….Nothing actually. I’m enjoying the peace and quiet i’m getting from this empty classroom.



Hi my beautiful Readers(yes,yes both male and female). How was last week? Mine was..eventful,in between it all i’m still going to make sure I stick to my ‘every Sunday post’ routine. 

That being said,Today’s post is a Product Review post..Yass!! So remember when I talked about the new products I got and even showed you guys? Well I got these too,so I thought i’d do a review on them today.

So lets get to it….

 The Kiss Beauty 3x Aloevera Makeup  Fix



This spray!! Sigh.. It’s my first ever makeup spray and I absolutely love love love it! It’s totally worth it’s price. 

​It glues the makeup to my face and I know it’s supposed to (obviously) but I’m just very shocked, I wanted to try something new and different and I thought it’d be awful but I was so wrong. I think that’s why i’m so happy about it.

I can’t imagine if it was rubbish and I spent 2k on it..urgh! I don’t even want to think like that.Oh also did I mention that it smells A-m-a-z-i-n-g. I think i’ll buy it again.

Price-N2000

You can buy in local markets.

*I haven’t found a bad side to it yet, if I do you guys will be the first to know


        Ushas Bronzer For Face and Body

This bronzer too!! I think this bronzer is like the most common, popular and even the cheapest one in this Nigeria ,I dont even blame the people that buy it,they happen to know how well it works. The glow is unbelieveable and its super affordable.


It’s  the perfect product  for an ‘affordable glow’ 
Price-500

You can get it at local stores or even public markets for N500 but if you cant stress try Konga or Jumia is between 750-1000
have you tried Any of these products?

What do you think about The bronzer?

Is the makeup spray one you want to try?

Let me know in the comment section, I’ll be waiting.

   Until Next Time XOXO

Have a good one.

                Love,
