HEALTHY LIFESTYLE HABITS YOU SHOULD START DOING

In the midst of battling the current covid-19 pandemic, home schooling kids as the case may be and even adapting to the new normal of working from home, having a healthy lifestyle cannot be overemphasized.

Picture credit: Pinterest

There are easy activities you can do that will boost your mental and physical health and should be taken as a lifestyle:

1. Eating Healthy- Eating healthy cannot be overemphasized. Take time to plan your meals, eat fruits and vegetables, drink lots of water.

3. Have a skin Care Routine- Take time to care for your skin and use the right products,

4. Rest- Have an early night, let your weekends be restful ones.

5. Walks- Walking for me has been a huge mental stress reliever. It could be early mornings or evenings, just take a walk down the street and practice social distancing while at it.

These tips are super easy and really helpful, inculcate the habit of doing them daily or weekly as the case may be. You can also set reminders to keep you in check and on track.

OVEN GRILLLED BARBECUE CHICKEN/CHICKEN SANDWICH

If i’ve done anything during the quarantine period, it’s cooking. I’ve tried on new recipes, enjoyed making old ones. I absolutely enjoy cooking but never really had the time to do so except on weekends when i wasn’t so tired till covid-19 happened.

I am not going to bore you with how i rediscovered my love for cooking because this is a recipe post.

I am not big on explanations so please just take this as i give it. I will be giving details on two recipes i tried for the first time during the quarantine period using chicken.

Recipe 1: Oven grilled barbecue/suya chicken

You will need:

  • Chicken (wings, drumsticks, whole) whichever you have
  • Barbecue sauce/suya spice(this is two recipes in one)
  • A glazing/pastry brush

Step 1- Boil your chicken using your go-to recipe and leave to cool for a few minutes after.

Step 2- Pre-heat your oven so it’s warm enough by the time the chicken goes in. I don’t have the degrees your oven should be pre-heated to because i use a small oven and it doesn’t have the degree count. Just put the oven on few minutes before the chicken goes in basically.

Step 3- Use the glazing brush to apply the barbebcue sauce on all parts of the chicken. If you are using the suya spice, dip the chicken into the suya spice till it is evenly coated on the chicken. If you don’t have a glazing brush, you can use a spoon, just that the glaze won’t be evenly coated on the chicken.

Step 4- Place your glazed chicken into the oven for 15 minutes on medium heat.

Step 5- Take out the chicken, turn it over, glaze again and put back into the oven for another 10 minutes.

Your chicken is ready to be eaten. Really easy right?

Barbecue Chicken
Suya Chicken

Recipe 2- Chicken Sandwich

I love this recipe a lot because you are going to make use of the remaining chicken from recipe 1.

You will need:

  • Chicken done using recipe 1
  • Slices of bread
  • Mayonnaise
  • Vegetables as preferred (tomatoes, onions, cucumber, lettuce etc)

Step 1- Cut your chicken into small chunks

Step 2- Mix chicken with mayonnaise

Step 3- Toast your bread slices and get your vegetables ready by cutting them into desired slices

Step 4- Place your vegetables on a slice of bread toast and put the chicken-mayonnaise mix on top of it.

Step 5- Place another slice of bread toast on the bread toast that has the chicken and vegetables and cut the bread into two triangles.

Your chicken sandwich is ready. I must confess though, i didn’t add vegetables when i made mine but adding them would make the chicken sandwich really nutritious and filling.

These recipes are pretty easy, ingredients are equally easy to get too.

Would you be trying these recipes out? Do tag me in your pictures/videos when you try them.

Things I’m Currently…

It’s March Yaaay!!!

Seems like the year is going by really fast and I’m loving it.

Without further ado, here’s a list of things I’m currently:

Loving- The new Chike album. If you haven’t heard about it or even listened to it, I want to believe you are living under a rock lol. Every song on the album is a hit, you should totally listen to it. It’s titled “Boo of the Booless”.

Watching- A lot of movies and series, the ones I’ve seen so far are “knives out” omg that movie was crazy, I’d call it a dark comedy movie, so interesting. Also, “bombshell”, “ a marriage story”, basically 2019 movies I haven’t been able to watch. I’m starting season 2 of “a million little things” today, I enjoyed season 1 and can’t wait to see how season 2 goes.

Reading- “insurance law” because I have an exam soon, wish me the best.

Eating- a lot of chocolates, it’s crazy how i’m such a sweet tooth. I tell people I drink green tea to cancel the chocolate lmao.

Saying- Prayer goes a long way. No matter how little or big that situation is, pray about it. God loves you too much so talk to him about anything and everything, he’s got you covered.

I hope you enjoyed my “things I’m currently” list.

Skin Care Update

Happy New Year Again Guys!

Okay so I have been getting a lot of “your skin is really glowing” comments for a while now so I thought you guys deserve an update on my skin care routine since my last post Here .

I started using this new product recently and in a short while I’ve seen a big positive change on my skin.

Have you heard of Arami essentials? Well, one of their products has been performing magic on my skin. Actually though, my face.

I still use the regular Shea butter mix with coconut oil on my body and use the arami glow oil just on my face and it has been magic.

I noticed my skin really became beautiful, you know the dark and shine type lol.

This isn’t some kind of sponsored post, I just thought to sing the praises of the arami glow oil since it has been performing wonders to my face.

My sister who blogs here bought the product for herself and I stole a few drops once in a while and then I started receiving the positive feedbacks about my face from people and then I decided to just stick to the product.

I hope to try a few more of their products in the near future.

The glow oil currently sells for N2,500 and you can check them out on Instagram. They also sell other skin care products like their onyx polish and purity mask.

Have you tried any Arami Essentials product before? Will you be trying them out soon? Please do share in the comments section.

Ways to spice your interiors

Hey People,

It’s been a minute since my last blog post. I apologize, finding the perfect post to put up can be hard sometimes.

How are y’all doing? It’s almost Christmas, who else is excited? I can’t wait to decorate my apartment in time for Christmas.

Talking about apartments, your home interior doesn’t have to be boring you know. I would be giving tips on how to give it a little lift that you will be proud of:

1) Furniture- I currently own a purple sofa in my living room and it is one of the best decisions ever. Spice your living room by adding colour with your furniture. If you aren’t so sure of making your sofa a bright colour, you can just go for the nude colours and make your accent/single chair a bright one instead.

2) Wall Art- This is one thing I can’t wait to lay my hands on. Wall art gives your home this feel I can’t seem to find a word for. Is the word artsy? I’m not sure lol.

3) Indoor plant (could be natural or artificial)- I love the natural ones most especially, they help with ventilation. If you’re like me that feels you might not be able to take care of the natural ones , please opt for the artificial plants, they’re as pretty too. They give your home this relax vibe.

4) Scented Candle- I love scented candles, in fact, I think I’m obsessed. They make your home smell really nice and homely. If you’re thinking of what to get me for Christmas, this is an idea lol.

You won’t want to leave your home again once these few tips have been incorporated.

Let’s talk about Christmas briefly, what are your plans? What gifts are you giving or expecting? How about a post on gift ideas for my next post? Please do share in the comments section.

Till next time, ciao.

Is Anything Wrong With Being Introverted?

Hey guys,

Today’s post is a question. So is anything wrong with being introverted?

I’ve struggled with accepting the fact that I am an introvert and I don’t understand why. Maybe I do, I mean, I know I want to be seen as a person that is outspoken, not shy, has a lot of friends etc but the truth is I’m not any of these things.

My life on the internet is different from my life offline. Okay pause, I don’t mean it that way.

When you see my tweets on twitter or my posts on IG you’d think I’m an extrovert but the thing is I’m just able to express myself better online than offline.

I used to have a problem accepting my introverted self but now, I’m embracing it because at the end of the day it is who I am. I have tried to be an extrovert but I don’t flow with it.

So back to my question, is anything wrong with being introverted? I think not,

Please do share your responses in the comments section I’d love to hear from you l.

With love,

Skin Care: what I do/use

Hello Hunnays,

Been a minute since my last post. I have been really lazy putting up a post and I apologize.

Let’s just get right into today’s post: my skin care products

Some days ago I was looking at pictures I took of myself and couldn’t help but appreciate my beautiful dark, melanin skin and in the era where people bleach their skins, I am really grateful for my dark one and I think you should too. Black is beautiful.

I’d be sharing with you what I do to take care of my skin and I hope it helps you one way or the other.

Before I go on, you need to understand what your skin wants- this is the most important tip ever. Know what works for your skin. The skin is a very delicate part of your body and knowing what goes and what doesn’t helps a lot. Overtime, I realized what works for my skin and it’s been a great journey since I started using only what works.

So, let’s get into my skin care products:

A) Face soap: like I said earlier, knowing what works for you is really important. I discovered that when I use certain medicated soaps on my face, I tend to have pimples all over so I stopped using them and just use any soap that doesn’t have medicated or antiseptic in its name. However, I started using Safeguard recently and my face has been almost smooth. I also do not use black soap for my face because I also tend to break out when I do.

B) Black Soap: I don’t use it for my face but I use it for other parts of my body. It’s organic, natural and really healthy for the skin.

C) Shea butter and coconut oil: I use the mix of both as body lotion and it gives me that natural body glow.

D) Face cream: I don’t use my Shea butter and coconut oil mix for my face because I have also discovered that any form of oil on my face causes breakouts for me so anything that doesn’t involve oil is perfect for my face. I also don’t use anything with chemicals. Any facial cream with just natural products is fine.

E) No makeup: I literally use nothing, not even powder on my face asides my lip gloss everyday except I have a wedding to attend or any special event and it’s been really helpful. It gives my face that fresh, youthful look. The makeup-free face also gives room for your face to breathe.

I hope these tips are helpful. Please do let me know in the comments section and also what skin care products you use.

N.B: Nobody’s skin is perfect so don’t be too hard on yourself, find out what works for you and be consistent.

Lastly, drink water and mind your business lol. Seriously though, does that work?

Till next time, ciao.

Finally!!!

I have a blog post. I’m not sure you understand how hard i’ve been trying to come up with a blog post but it finally came to me lol.

How are you doing? Miss me? I hope you did.

What am I writing about today, hmmm, Music. I didn’t want to give it away in the topic lol.

Music is power, it is beauty that keeps redefining itself, it is one blessing I’m super grateful for or am i the only one on this train?

I love music a lot but tend to forget it exists sometimes especially when I’m so caught up with stuff and as soon as I remember, the music girl in me jacks up and then we go through the cycle again.

Anyway, today is one of the days I appreciate music and I thought to share with you my current fave songs.

In no particular order, here goes the list:

1)

2)

3)

4)

5)

6)

7)

8)

9)

I hope you enjoyed the list.

What are your current fave songs? Please do share in the comments section.

Till next time, ciao
