Guest Post | Ladies, Who Pays on the First Date?


Ladies, I know you are going to just love this blog post! Meet Natalka,  a lifestyle and budget blogger in the UK who is documenting her journey to saving enough to buy a house. Money is a subject that affects almost every life decision, from what we eat to where we shop, and yes even who choose to spend life with. (I know you're tempted to disagree, but despite our denial many of us date within or above our wealth bracket!)

Speaking of dating, the activity can be both fun and daunting. Today Natalka is spinning her knowledge of money with the contentious issue of dating, and oh, she also shares her current reads!

Keep reading.

Seven Ways to Practice Self-Care As a Blogger


It's Mental Health Awareness Day and as a blogger, one of the things I'm highly aware of is the pressure this seemingly harmless activity can sometimes apply. Often what starts off as a hobby, can quickly become a full-time gig, with all the stress and none of the benefits! 

People often forget that a single blog post carries not just the 500-800 words that have been published, but the groundwork that has gone into it - research, editing, photography, social media promotion etc, which at times leaves the blogger exhausted.

Women in STEM | Jamila's Story


Meet Jamila Kyari! Jamila is one of a few women who answered the call when I put out a request for women working in STEM, (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths industries). Jamila is a Communications Manager, born and raised in Nigeria for most of her early life and into the late teens. She currently resides in Canada where she has lived for almost over 14 years. Jamila is the first of many women who will feature on Madeline Wilson-Ojo, and her interview is riveting! I hope reading her story will inspire you.

BOOKMARKED! | Black History Month Edition


Howdy!

It's October already. Let that sink in. This month is significant to me for a number of reasons, but one of the many things which marks October out is that here in the UK, it's Black History Month.

In the eighties, Trinidadian born Ansel Wong, who served as an advisor to the then Greater London Council, with his colleague, Akyaaba Addai-Sebo (who I am going to assume is Ghanaian from the name) first conceived the idea of setting aside a month to recognise and celebrate the contribution and history of black people in the UK. It was going to be much like Black History Month in The States. Wong pitched the idea to politician, Linda Bellos.

Film Review | Nappily Ever After

Last Friday saw the release of Nappily Ever After on Netflix, and trust me, Twitter has been talking! Based on the novel by Trisha R. Thomas, Nappily Ever After tells the story of a black woman's path to independence - independence from the pressure of conforming to a standard of beauty perpetuated by the very industry she works in.

Film Review | Crazy Rich Asians

It's not very often I go out on a school night. I'm that girl who's most likely to offer a well-curated excuse for missing out on after-work drinks or any other link up in the middle of the week but last week I broke away from tradition and went to see Crazy Rich Asians.
