Book Review | BRIT(ish)


When I tell you there has been something of a publishing revolution this year when it comes to Black British literature I really mean it. And given that it's Black History Month, I just could not possibly allow October to quietly pass without drumming up some noise about the one book which perfectly evaluates what it means to be black and British.

Top Tips for Getting The Most Out Of Your Networking Events




Today as I left for work I noticed a remarkable turn in the weather. As I wound my scarf around my neck to make it as airtight as possible, my mind wandered to the influx of festive parties and dinner invitations that are to come.Although the primary function of these events is to enjoy the festivities of the season, and perhaps celebrate all the hard work that has gone into the year, they also serve as great networking opportunities. Networking can be a daunting affair and up until I attended the Black British Bloggers mixer earlier this year, I had sworn off them entirely.

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 with us what she's currently reading.  

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.
