For Every Woman


Easy Tips to Improve Your Natural Beauty– There is a correlation between how a woman feels on the inside and how she feels on the outside. If you feel good, it will radiate in your appearance and vice versa. Some people feel good inside when they know that they look their best. Having said so, here are easy tips that you can follow to improve your natural beauty.

1. Smile a lot.As most people would say, your smile is your best accessory. When you meet people, the first thing that they see is your face. Before they even look at your dress, your shoes, your bag, and even the other features in your body, the first thing that they will notice is your face. So what better way to show confidence other than flashing your sweet smile? Smiling should be a habit especially when you greet people. Also, make sure that your teeth are at its best.

2. Always smell good. Body odor is a big turn off. How you smell reflects so much of how well you take care of your body so one of the best beauty tips that can ever be given to you is to smell good all the time. Shower regularly and always apply proper hygiene. Brush your teeth every after meal and use mouth spray if necessary. Use a perfume that is not too fragrant because an overpowering smell can irritate other people. Spray perfume only in reasonable amount.

3. Keep yourself fit. Living a healthy lifestyle is important. Be active and make exercise a part of your everyday routine. Not only will it help you maintain a healthy weight, but also it will also offer you other benefits. Women who are in shape feel better about themselves and have less insecurity compared to those who are overweight. In addition, buying clothes in style won’t be a problem because more clothes suit women who are fit.

4. Wear clothes that highlight your best feature. Not everything that’s in style fits you. You may not feel comfortable in wearing them and at the same time, these trends may not exactly highlight your body’s best feature. Know which part of your body you are most proud of and choose clothing pieces that will enhance it. Refrain from wearing clothes that will focus your weaknesses so always be smart when shopping for new apparel and accessories.

5. Be confident.A confident woman beats a woman full of insecurities any day. It doesn’t matter if someone is more beautiful than you. There are other women who may be taller than you or smarter than you but what makes the difference is how you carry yourself. Be confident and comfortable in your skin.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace by Jimi Hendrix

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.”

Sammie’ Poem


“THE WA-ZO-BIA REACTION” (a poem)

“Ig1+Yo2+ Ha4 — PDP0 (+APC1) = NeW 9ja”

Jega dusted the crucible

placed it on the Inec’s table

“let us sample 9ja’s medullas!”

he threw in tattered umbrellas

brooms entered the mix

“tick-tock”, time ticks

“pour all into the mortar”

people added Holy Water

as Jega pounded with PVC

Twitter turned a stormy sea:

OMOjuwa and OMOkri

efribodi n sare kiri!

Jega first said ‘FeBUHARI

14 x 2 = March 28. Orisirisi!

“continuity!”, many screamed

“change!” many more dreamed

as Amaechi dodged bullets

mama Peace fed gullets

Nyamiri, Ngbati and Gambari

all thumbed their marks for Buhari

young, aged, (cows and underaged?)

from Sokoto to Osun, the thumbs raged

Lagos quaked and Rivers rumbled

but the umbrella still crumbled!

mad Oru, for Joe, did bebe

but Jega drooled white kelebe..

the General pened victory piece

as uncle Jona whimpered in peace

ah, this Wa-Zo-Bia reaction!

Hello world!


My Fallen Hero

Sitting on my window and looking out through my door was all I could do from walking into my chair.

The paradox of the hierarchy has become the mediocrity of the dancers when illusion is their vision.

The sound of the owl in the daytime is the irony of the nightmare in the afternoon.

Short was the scream and fatal was the fall. Sudden was the end of all that I had hoped in.

There was a handwriting on the wall and the meaning was hidden from all but the eyes of a child with no voice to tell.

But with time, the wall spoke and all heard but the child. Because the handwriting had completed its course and the child was gone.

The giant monster invaded and the weak dove was caged because busy were the eyes to decipher the code on the monster until my hero fell and great was the fall.
