Here are links to some great articles I found on the net

Window-less planes may be the future of flying.  See what the inside of those planes would look like here.

You guys!  Check out this video of Obama ‘singing’ Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy.’  It’s the funniest thing ever.

Some people put 2 spaces after typing a sentence.  Others put 1.  Who’s correct?  This article weighs in on this most important writing conundrum. :-)

Cabin crew do more than ‘chicken or beef?’  These stories of brave, quick-thinking flight attendants will make you appreciate them more.

These places where celebrities spent their honeymoon are totally dream-worthy.

Nail art: Tribal nail art

tribal nail art boldnails.com

The thing about tribal nail art is that it can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.  I would say this one is about half-way in between :-) I did this nail art following  a tutorial I found on this blog.  I’m a big fan of black and white so for me, those colours make tribal nail art stand out even more which is why I like this look so much.

6 great reasons to travel alone

6 great reasons you should travel alone

I often go on holidays by myself to places where I know no-one.  That is apparently strange, especially for a Nigerian.  Whenever Nigerians ask me who I went on holiday with or who I stayed with when I was away and I say no-one, they stare at me in shock for a few seconds then quickly follow the silence with a barrage of questions.  The white people I meet never seem surprised however.

One of the most common questions I get when I say I travel alone is ‘Why?’ and here I would like to follow George Bernard Shaw’s lead and say ‘Why not?’  I travel alone so often that I quite like it now.  The very first time I did it, I was nervous of course but today, it’s a piece of cake.  I want you to try travelling solo too so here are a few reasons why you should: Continue reading

Nail art: Rose nail art

This was the first time ever that I did roses on my nails and I was beyond surprised that they turned out so well.  Usually, when I do new nail art, it takes a few tries to get it right.  I love the water-decal effect of this look.

Travel Video: Bandia Reserve, Senegal

Earlier in the year, I went to Senegal and decided to go to Bandia Reserve.  I’m glad I did.  Bandia Reserve is a 3,500 hectare wildlife reserve in Senegal.  There, you can be within inches of zebras, giraffes, ostriches, rhinoceroses and more.  It’s an amazing experience.  Get a feel of the reserve by checking out this video I made of it.

Picture of the month: The Maldives

picture of the month maldives

Every single time I hear about the Maldives, it’s in reference to it as the ultimate honeymoon destination.  But whether one is on honeymoon or not, I think the Maldives would be a fascinating place to visit.  The Maldives refers to a country made up of several islands, each slightly different from the other.  One of the most popular resorts in the Maldives is made up of little huts on stilts right in the ocean so that you can walk out the door of your room and dive into the water.  Cool, eh?  Are the Maldives on your list of places to go or have you been there before?  Let me know in the comments section.

Nail art: Waterfall nail art

nail art in lagos by lape soetan

I did this waterfall nail design following a tutorial I saw on this blog.  I thought it would be difficult to create but it really wasn’t.  It took a while to do but wasn’t difficult.  This is one of my favourite nail art designs.

Nail art: Need for speed

nail art need for speed

I did this nail art with Speed Racer in mind.  The stripes made me think of race cars.  When I was done though, the stripes against the yellow nail polish made me think of Lagos taxis.  I did the lines free-hand and liked how straight they came out.
