Water, Water and Harmattan

Hello People. I am Back!

A very long sabbatical it was and i’m sorry for the break in transmission. It’s like forever since I shared something about Spotless Skin – Secrets Revealed. I had a whole lot of things to wrap up but truly, I am fully back.

This heat is getting unbearable and the truth is I can’t just wait for harmattan to lower the temperature. The sun this days is rated 18+ biko. The harmattan season, which most people dread, can actually be enjoyable with the right routine. Trust me, I know.

Visibility is usually poor during Harmattan

It’s a common knowledge harmattan often stresses the skin. So on beauty corner this week, let’s talk about this awesome pill I discovered recently. Don’t worry its not bitter. It’s cheap, easily affordable and totally works wonders.

The magic potion is mother earth’s milk..ok, ok, it’s WATER. Yes!

The effect of Harmattan can be very brutal

Water taken in the appropriate amounts can help cushion the effects of harmattan and actually make it enjoyable. For those that can, water therapy during this season can reduce dry lips, thirst and dry itchy skin. I have a easy schedule for my personal therapy that I would like to share with you.

Here it goes:

  • Drink 120ml of water immediately you wake up. Do not eat anything one hour prior to and after drinking. If you are starting for the first time, start with about 75ml and then increase it a gradual pace.
  • Wait for 45 minutes after meal before drinking water. When you do, drink at least  50ml, an equivalent of  1 sachet of pure water.
  • Do not drink soda or soft drinks with meals, and if you must, drink them separately.
  • Never go to bed thirsty. If you feel thirsty,satisfy that urge before you go to bed.

NB:The quality of water you drink matters. Please make sure your water source is portable.
A little exercise also helps. I personally prefer a short run because i’m a lazy runner but if you can it is helpful to warm up on a cold morning and get sweaty a bit. It helps to beat the cold and keep fit at the same time.

Europeans will say Winter is Coming. In Nigeria, we say Harmattan is coming.

Be prepared!

Till next week on Beauty Corner, stay healthy, stay fresh and stay beautiful.

Short but useful. Don’t forget to drop your comments and questions..

Till then, it’s Au Revoir.

Happy Anniversary To Us

How. Time. Flies.

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 4 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

I woke up to a happy anniversary message this morning. It’s been four wonderful years of blogging. Four years of sharing my thoughts using the WordPress platform. Four years of reading people’s comments on my posts and having the most tickling feeling only I can explain. You all have been my support over the years. I’d disturb your timelines with my posts on Facebook and everywhere and tagged a whole lot of you. Annoying something! But the love you had for me came through and you all hardly lay a complaint.

Thank You.

Older friends would remember the days of press council in Aquinas College. News we would broadcast to the school community every Friday. The seed had been sown and I took the budding cud to the Uni. Together with John and the team, as the Editor-In-Chief of my department’s press council, which we ran like the University press council, we broke records. We surpassed our expectation to say the least. Our Bi-monthly publications were usually a sold out, our information board was fully engaging and the whole press council project was a fantastic learning curve. We interviewed senior lecturers and hey, we also interviewed the Vice Chancellor. Massive moments those were. Victor, world class graphic designer, Gbemisola, Fortune, the sport correspondent, Dami, Tosin and a whole lot of you I possibly can’t mention. You guys were the best.

While many only see blogging through the needle’s eyes of Google Ad-sense and all, making money out of it has never been my drive. I see a platform where thoughts and ideas can be expressed. And I’ve been doing that for four years now.

I’ve been honored to have guest writers on this page. While they are currently on self induced vacation, be rest assured Beauty Corner with Precious and Shots on Target with Kholar will be back very soon. In the meantime, i should introduce the elegant Lisbeth Salander. She’s the latest addition to the family and going forward she’ll be delighting novel lovers with her thoughts. Something you need to look forward to.

If you’re wondering how I fared with my first blog post, check Here.

 

Exciting times await us all!

As always, make friends with the comment section.

Random Thoughts with Asat – Of Prophets, Prophecies and Predictions

write-tb

What a Week!!!

Donald Trump is the president-elect of the self-acclaimed free world, America. I mean, ‘Your Excellency President Trump sir’! I laugh out loud. The whole election chagrin had got me thinking how we care as Nigerians about frivolous things and nick our mind off the real troubles we face as a people and as a nation.

Two things happened this week that made a light of what the GOAT Jesus had said some two thousand years ago. In the last days, many false prophets will abound with frivolous prophecies. I would imagine these so called prophets, many of you believe, adore and worship more than God himself, are no different from our youths who gamble on soccer bets using odds, permutation and pure logic. If Barcelona is playing a weaker team, the permutation is worked out based on Barca’s present form, the recent results between the pair and other logic. Truth is, your prophet use logic for predictions. Your pastor is just another NairaBet player.

A certain ‘Man of God’ had said he saw a vision. A revelation from God which, according to the pastor, showed the winner of the election. He said the election was going to be very close. He said the winner will encounter challenges at the beginning of his administration. He then said the winner would be a woman. Everyone, bar few people in this country, thought the winner of the election was going to be a woman. America’s elections for the past two decades have always been a close call. And no one resumes a new job without initial difficulties and settling down challenges. I mean, I’m facing one currently. You see, your prophet thought of all these permutations, followed the polls, watched CNN far too long and made his bet. If only he had been watching FOXtv! Your pastor failed.

The Woman Winner

In another classical twist, a prophet was arrested this week in Lagos for defrauding bank customers after giving them fake prophecies. A police source claimed the woman prophet is a member of a four-man syndicate.

The police source said:

“In her statement, she confessed that the syndicate’s mode of operation was to lurk around bank premises, while her role was to accost a bank customer suspected to be with money.

“The suspect explained that she would pretend that she was new in Lagos and asked for direction from the victim. Simon would subsequently make shocking spiritual revelations about her victim, after which she would advise that a special prayer must be offered for the victim.

“The next move was to take the victim to a nearby place where the three other accomplices were waiting and they would replace the money withdrawn by the victim with disposable papers, covered with a few Naira notes.”

Remember. Logic, permutation and trends aid predictions. Many of your prophets are just 9jaBet players in collar. Use your head. Religion is a snare. Your ‘Men of God’ are fallible. Be guided.

Do note that GOAT means Greatest of all Time.

Be kind enough to share your thoughts with me in the comment section.

Cheers to a soothing weekend.
