Lemons the new method to keep your face shining and flawless!

According to Wikipedia, lemon (Citrus × limon) is a species of small evergreen tree native to Asia.
The tree’s ellipsoidal yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes throughout the world, primarily for its juice, which has both culinary and cleaning uses .

The pulp and rind (zest) are also used in cooking and baking. The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, which gives a sour taste. The distinctive sour taste of lemon juice makes it a key ingredient in drinks and foods such as lemonade and lemon meringue pie.

They are two types of lemon you can always find in the store or in your local market which is the organic lemon which is normally yellow outside and then the local or green lemon which is normally found in Africa as pictured below.

Lemon is very good for cooking, baking and also cleansing our body, a good source of vitaminC which is never harmful to the body, it has about 5 to 6 percent of citric acid so it is safe to use and can never harm your skin or face.

Here is the little secret if you really want your face to be very smooth and flawless.

Get a lemon cut into two halves and then take one half and rub on your face for about 30minuites,squeezing out the juice for maximum effect,

After applying it wait for about 15minuites before washing it off with warm water, remember, do not apply on your face if you have a wound or scare there because it will cause you more pain and also if you have a dry skin try applying coconut oil for dark skinned people and carrot oil for fair skinned 
people immediately after washing it out to avoid breakouts.
But if you have an oily skin, you might not need to apply any oil afterwards just dry your face with clean face towel and you are good to go.

Do this at least twice a week then come back and let me know how it all went, don’t forget to snap before and after pictures and send it across to us.

We would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful night rest ,

Goodnight fam!

Tomatoes the new gold in Town!!!

Hello my beautiful people, sorry the update is coming late again! Lol, my kids are on mid-term break through Monday and Tuesday to resume back on Wednesday.So I’ve been very busy, no help,no nanny, so no rest here at all, please my apologies!

Ehen so back to the matter, so yesterday after church service, while coming back hubby asked me to get fresh tomatoes for jollof rice, even with the alarming increase in price, I pleaded with him to use the leftover stew to prepare the jollof rice since that was what he wanted but he said NO!

So that’s how I branched into the market, scanned through from the first to the last person selling tomatoes but I couldn’t find any reasonable and fresh one, then I entered the market and saw these beautiful fresh tomatoes and priced it guess how much? Can you guess???

 I bought this 6 heads of tomatoes for #500, Yes! you heard me right,I taught it was a joke sef, hehe but the sellers kept on pleading and complaining on how everything has increased tremendously, On a normal day I buy a full paint bucket of tomatoes  for #500 but the reverse is the case.

A basket now sells for #30,000 and above  against the normal price of  #3,000 to #15,000 depending on the size and specie.
But against all odds we shall survice, on the other news, my jollof rice turned out great and it was a beautiful weekend,I totally forgot to take pictures was so hungry, next time I will not forget to do so at all…Lol
Have a beautiful week ahead beauties!

Happy Mother’s Day to the women out there. We are created to recreate and that is the biggest gift of all from God. I had a silent delivery because I didn’t want to stress my baby and when I pulled him from my body I’ve never felt so important. I’ve made mistakes and had some growing to do and this little guy came at the right time. Orlando, thank you for Jru, Tatiana and Taylor,and loving Kniko unconditionally. Yesenia, bestie, godmother, sister….I couldn’t have done this without you and Orlando by my side. Thanks to my Dr. And a special #happymothersday to Shonna my nurse. I’m strong. #reachoutandbringlifeintotheworld Jru is a month today, and what a special day it is. ❤️ sorry if this offends anyone. I’ll be removing it shortly.Watch the video below..
