Taking the leap


Things I've always wanted to do that seem so impossible to do;

Travel the world
I'm an adventurous woman. The thrill of what could be around the next turn always gets me. If I could I'd be a work nomad. Become an African woman rolling stone. No moss on me baby, no moss. Financial constraints have kept me limited to exploring Ghana. Which is super cool especially because I'm always up for attending church funerals that take place outside of Accra. This way I've managed to see many of the regions in Ghana for free 😉and eat of their cuisine.
Now I'd like to see Morocco to try an authentic tagine, pretend I'm in the Casablanca movie.
I'd like to see Zanzibar because the name sounds poetic and exotic. It makes me want to go skinny dipping in broad daylight.
I'd like to see and eat Thailand. I hear the street food is amazing.
I'd like to see and shop watches in Switzerland.
Swallow raw herrings in the Netherlands.
Eat peach cobbler in the American South.
See the sights of New York and if my luck holds attend one of the Queen Bee's concerts.

Write a book 
I've always dreamt of writing a book. Whenever I google how to start writing, the usual answer is to just write. You know free writing and the like. But one day I'll write. Simply because I've accumulated so many gorgeous looking books to write in. The funny thing is that I used to write poetry when I was really young. Who knows maybe I'll be able to capture that spark again.

Become more confident with my driving 
This one is easy because all i need is practice, practice, practice. One day me too I'll overtake somebody while playing really loud music.☺️🎶🤓

Learn how to make croissants from scratch 
I saw a YouTube video on it and I was like what???? It was so time consuming and the amount of butter that goes into it is mind boggling. But I'm planning for it seriously. When I'm down to 64 kilos I'll make croissants to celebrate.

What have you ever dreamt of doing? Don't be like me, actually do it!

How to go to Kantamanto or how to go thrift shopping or how to shop at the bend down boutique.

This is a continuation sort of my previous post. Those who know me personally always ask me where I get most of my clothing from. People can never believe the amazing things I find at second hand clothing stalls and they want to know how they can do it too. These tips have been tested in Accra, Kumasi, Belle Marché in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire and in Abuja, Nigeria. Weep no more as here are my tried and tested tips!


1. Dedicate a day to thrift shopping:   The second hand clothing stalls in Kantamanto in Accra central tend to be located close to one another. Be prepared to go from stall to stall bargain hunting for items that catch your eye. Be prepared as all sorts of offerings are on display; dresses, tops, bottoms, bags, shoes and so on.

2. Know the days fresh bales are opened: This is a pro tip and its Tuesdays and Saturdays or so. I stand to be corrected if I'm wrong. However I've gotten great bargains on other days of the week that I've gone "foss" shopping.

Acne.org Review

Acne.org - The Regimen Review 
Bad acne has been my bane for the past ten years or so of my life. i have tried a lot of things, from a dermatologist at Rabito Clinic in Osu (that one was very harsh on my pocket and it didn't even work), to cheap medications that were recommended to me, to really expensive treatments from neighbourhood beauty supply shops.  i was tired of being all dressed up and looking good to go some place and some stranger would walk up to me and say "oh i have a product that you can use to clear your pimples". i mean, come on, at least begin with you're looking good mpo eh. lol.

For some time now i have been seeing mention of acne.org whenever i google stuff about acne treatment. i finally gave in and went to the site. The first thing i noticed was that they mentioned that they do not do paid advertisements, that they rely on word of mouth recommendations. That's when i realised that maybe this would be my answer. However, because i live in Ghana…

Losing Weight The Lazy Way

I'm medium height, about 5ft 4inches. I'm told that's tall for a girl. But i'm the shortest person in my family.



The only time i have been skinny in my life was up to about 14 years old. 




As i started puberty, i found i was always hungry. At the same time, i developed a bad ice-cream habit which i haven't gotten rid off to date. Anyway, my weight has to date, ranged from my lowest at about age 21 of 59kg to 83kg (cringe). Although to tell the truth, lately its staying at the 79kg mark.

I'd rather not exercise, it isn't that i hate exercise or anything. In fact about 4 years ago, i took the exercise route and i got down to a lovely 65kg. 




However, i wasn't able to maintain my exercise routine, i was still eating the same and i regained the weight and some. I love food. That's when i told myself that since you can't maintain the exercise thing, why don't you try weight loss from the food angle?  Then i remembered that i had successfully done so ab…
