Happy New Month! Guess Whose Birthday It Was


Quote of the Day: See you a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before obscure men- Proverbs 22:29.



Hi guys! Due to the span of time between my last post here and this one, if you call me lazy in blogging this one time, I will not clap back. I have wanted to do this post for a long time now...and things keep getting in the way.



As you have noticed from our blog banner, I changed the posting days to Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays as opposed to our July routine as seen here. The exact posting time is 2 pm. So yes, by God's grace if you come here at 2 pm on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, you will see a new post. Subscribe to my mailing list so that you don't forget.


I meant it when I said I was going to take this blogging thing very seriously. I am grateful for the support you keep showing me on social media, thank you.


Your constant visits to this blog has not gone unnoticed as seen in this screenshot I took while analyzing my blog analytic, over 10,000 views in one month! My mind was totally blown away. Today I even saw new visitors from Latvia, and our Polish friends have returned as well.


In case you missed it, here are some of the things I blogged about in July

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

GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Hello Lovelies, Welcome to today’s post. It rained cats and dogs yesterday so the weather here in Lagos is subtle and cool. What’s the weather like where you live?

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
