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. I had to buy it, before she starts following me around the house, yelling,"mummy, coco toss" (that's what she calls it) LOL.

To be on a safer side, i bought two smaller packs of Coco pops to try out. How did it go? Keep Reading...

WHY DOES THE NIGERIAN KELLOGG'S CORNFLAKES TASTE DIFFERENT? - PRODUCT REVIEW

About a month ago, I went for the family weekly shopping at a supermarket in my vicinity, De Prince Supermarket to be exact.

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...

MY FIRST VIDEO IN IGBO-THE NIGERIAN LANGUAGE CHALLENGE



Have you received your New Year greeting from me? How dare you Nelo 😋 Happy New Year again.  I have already told you how excited I am in my first blog post of 2018

I decided to challenge myself by filming a video in Igbo. I had to do it for the culture 💓Igbo is my mother tongue and spoken by natives of South Eastern Nigeria. I was raised in Lagos, but still speak Igbo very well, thanks to my parents.(i can read and write it too. I'm bragging now) Anyway, filming in Igbo was a challenge only because I am used to code-switching.

Now what is the Igbo word for 'SUBSCRIBE'?

You'll have to watch to see how I did:

10 Moms Share their Best Tips Before You Say Yes to Baby No. 2


As a mom of 2 kids under 3 (Zara is 2+ years & Kamara is 5 months old), living in Lagos, Nigeria, I do get overwhelmed with everything a lot of times. There are so many things I did not expect and I don't know why all these women in my family did not warn me about how hard it gets raising more than one child.

People are pretty much nosy in these parts, and once my child turned one, I was getting bombarded with questions on "when are you going to give Zara a sibling?". I wish someone had told me that being a mom of 2 is more tasking. It was easier for me to transition from having no kids to one child. I struggled more with the transition from one kid to two kids, mostly because my oldest is a toddler and the 'terrible twos' is a different ball game. Being a mom of a toddler is emotional. Also, irrespective of what's going on (pregnancy sickness, delivery, etc.) you always have another child to worry about. It helps to have a routine with both kids and preparing ahead as much as I can helps make life easier.

I was curious to know if I was alone in feeling this way or not. I ask 10 Mommy Bloggers, with two kids and more, from around the world, their experience raising their kids and more.
