Have you ever heard this prayer, "you shall give birth like a Hebrew woman"? Well, i had a few people volunteer this prayer at me in both pregnancies.

IS MAX.NG THE UBER OF LOGISTICS?- PRODUCT REVIEW

This review is long over due but due to a busy schedule, I am just getting around to writing it. Also, I wanted to use the service at least twice to get a true feel for it. I hosted a Giveaway on Youtube and Instagram in February 2018. The prize was a bag of Huggies diapers. After selecting the winner, the task was how to get the prize across to the winner. The giveaway was for Lagos residents only.

I had to get the giveaway prize delivered to the winner and as I could not take it there myself, I decided to give MAX.ng a try. MAX.ng is a Nigerian logistics company operating within the tech space. MAX actually stands for Metro African Xpress. I would best describe them as the "Uber of Logistics". I learnt about MAX.ng through LinkedIn. The second time i had a parcel delivered through MAX.ng was in March, 2018. I had to fulfill an order for a Gorilla tripod (for Cameras and mobile phones) which I sell via my Instagram page, CHECK IT OUT HERE and used their service.
How does it work?

OMUGWO👶 HOW TO CARE FOR A NEW BABY & MOM👩NIGERIAN STYLE


Congratulations!!! on your pregnancy or the arrival of your baby.

In my experience, having two kids, i have benefited from Omugwo. Omugwo is traditional post-natal care given to newborn babies and new moms in Igbo culture. Traditional post-natal care is typical of most parts of Nigeria and though 'omugwo' is the word used by many to refer to this process, 'Omugwo' is an Igbo word. So how do you do Omugwo?

IS NIGERIAN KELLOGG'S COCO POPS GOOD FOR YOU?-PRODUCT REVIEW


So on tuesday, i went to my neighborhood store to buy toothpaste. I was minding my business and there was this new pack of Kellogg's Coco Pops, staring at me.

But we had run out of Kellogg's Coco Pops and remember i mentioned in my last post, it is Zara's favourite cereal.

HOW TO GET RID OF MOSQUITOES: RAID INSECT KILLER - PRODUCT REVIEW


What can be more annoying than laying down to sleep and having mosquitoes convene on my ear? I don't know what they could possibly be trying to tell me, but I know i don't want to hear it. The struggle to keep my home mosquito free is real. Especially since my family and I are trying to avoid getting ill with Malaria.

For some time now, we have been seeing mosquitoes or hearing them (that annoying buzz sound in your ear) around the house. When we moved to our current apartment a few years ago, one of the things we loved was the fact that there were rarely any mosquitoes. And we know, because our first apartment in Lagos, was plagued by mosquitoes. So annoying.

My preferred way of fighting mosquitoes in the house, is with Insect killer aerosol sprays. I am not a big fan of mosquito nets, as i get hot easily. Keep reading...
