My Take on Debonair Pizza Ikoyi: A Review

How are you doing today? What do you think of that new Coca Cola advert that leaves you wondering who's thirstier, the cashier or the young man. Sometime ago, I stopped by the new Debonair's Pizza shop at Mobil Filing station on Awolowo Road Ikoyi just before Falomo. I was pretty much impressed by it's neatness. And,just in case you were wondering what the interiors look like,I have pictures,yaay :)   Before you continue reading,it will mean the world to me if you liked our Facebook Page just click here Prior to their launch last year, my friends and I had waited days without end. Until a week or so after the Bar results were released; and by then we had ended our internship programme,so no group pizza :(   The staff there are bubbly fellows and while I wish  Debonair's will place chairs for their waiting customers so they don't keep us(customers) standing like stranded tourists or in your car inhaling the strong odour of petrol/fue

Happy New Month: Life Lately 3

Happy New Month Guys! I hope this month brings you nothing but joy and blessings. May the value of the Nigerian Naira increase, and may things get better for all of us, amen. Here are some of my Goals for March 2017 : To do daily Taking Stock Posts, so be sure to stick around, and don't forget to comment. To upload a video on my YouTube Channel once a week (either on Mondays or Fridays). To finish reading a book or topic each week. Take my Hair a bit more seriously without idolising it. Tolerate people and myself(because I judge myself a bit too intense) more. Talk less,do more. Draw closer to God. Fire: Is what I will call my snapchat today. You have to see for yourself to see what I mean exactly (just in case you are curious, my username is lilyofnigeria . Irritated: by those disgusting ways people use to wriggle themselves out of situations. Still Disgusted: by this line “I am testing you.”   I’m like, “Damn you and your tests! Feeling

Taking Stock: Life Lately 2

I saw this on someone's blog the other day (I can't place my finger on the link in particular),and thought it would make a good read here on lily of Nigeria. And, just maybe, you'll be moved to share yours with me as well. Went to: the Ecumenical/National Christian Church today after my NYSC CDS, while cruising from Area 10 to the Central Area with my leggedis -Benz . At first, a King’s Guard refused me entry into the main church. As I was leaving, a kind Police man walked me back,and into the church and told me not to mind the man. You call it luck,I call it favour. At first,I was shocked because prior to this experience,I didn’t know there was ever a church where people were denied entrance to speak with God. Dug deep: into instagram algorithms and why some people get many likes,and others don’t. Listening to :  The Hobbit - Far Over the Misty Mountains Gold Wondered : if the Dwarves from the Lord of the Rings are really dwarves in real life.

MY SUNDAY FUNDAY SUGARFREE ZOBO DRINK RECIPE

Ever drank Zobo from a bottle and as you approached the bottom, you were filled with dread because the bottom was filled with sand? Well you can make your own Zobo. I'll show you how later in this post. For now,here's a bit of a story. (This is the only picture that wasn't from yesterday's Zobo making. This is from my earlier experiment when I was still perfecting the recipe. Yesterday,I peeled the rind of the orange and cut it into small pieces) As a child, someone made this drink for me and I ended up being hospitalized. That experience alone scarred my Mom to the point it made her ban the drink in our house. Nobody made it for us, and we were expressly prohibited from drinking Zobo outside the house. Well,everything changed about two years ago when my aunt fearlessly taught me how to make Soya milk and gave the Zobo recipe after that. But, I didn't quite get it,so I turned to Dunni and some other Pros including my aunt for their own recip

Blogger Feature 3: Azaram

Hi guys! How are you doing? This is the third blogger feature we are doing here on the blog. Azadeh has a very bubbly personality and I enjoyed our little back and forth email. 1. Hello, give us a background about yourself? - Hi! My name is Azadeh and I am a multimedia journalist and blogger based in New York City.  I recently graduated from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and I work at Vanity Fair on their video team.  Pretty much all other moments of my time are dedicated to either spending time with my family or blogging!   2. As a female blogger, how would you describe the general perception of your field when you tell people about it? What do you wish is being done differently? - What an excellent question!  I think for the most part, people don't take it seriously, but only because they don't really know that blogging is a BUSINESS!   Especially when you monetize it, like I have. It's not just curating an outfi
