What I am Currently Reading: A Book by Helon Habila, "Waiting For An Angel".

Hey Guys! I started reading this book yesterday evening. For a long time, I've been wanting to read it; but, I had to wait for my brother (who owns it) to finish first.  I had to pause halfway because I wanted to "save it", and process it slowly. At the rate I was going, I could have finished it by now.
The book was written by Helon Habila, the winner of the 2001 Caine Prize for African Literature aka The Booker Prize. It has 7 parts (named after the different peoples lives of which the entire story is centered around), and, an Afterword by the Author. Also, it has 228 pages of great-goodness. It captures the lives of seven people under the different Military regimes of the 90s in Nigeria, including the "Abacha regime" (na dem sabi).
It's definitely a good read, and, I highly recommend it for you, your friends/loved ones, (or your children, if you have any). You can buy it by clicking here

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if
