‘Round the world ticket (April 2014)

While the debate on whether the internet has brought more good than bad to the world rages on, here’s a post on how the internet can keep you happy :-)

Every single person out there needs to know this:  How to sell yourself.

Success is the result of a series of marginal gains.

I made Tanzania a Picture of the Month on this blog recently and as if to tell me I made the right choice, I just came across this post about 10 places to visit in Tanzania.  Beautiful.

And for a little light reading, here’s a short post with a picture of the human Barbie wearing no makeup.

Instagram can help you and your business. Here’s how.

how instagram can help you and your business

Basically, Instagram is a photograph-based social networking site.  On Instagram, you put up pictures, share those pictures on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter, look for people you’re interested in and follow them and people can follow you and your pictures too.  In terms of following people and being followed, Instagram is similar to Twitter but while Twitter is mainly about what you can say in 140 characters or less, Instagram is about the story you can tell with one photograph.

With celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Justin Bieber being on Instagram and being followed by millions of people, it may look like the photo-sharing site won’t be of much use to you or your business but it is.

Here is more information about Instagram and how it can be useful to you: Continue reading

Nail Art: Sailor Nails

lapesoetan nail art

I love the contrasting blue and red in this nail look.  The anchor was pretty easy to do; I had more problems creating the stripes than the anchor.  I did this nail art following a tutorial online but I can’t remember where exactly I saw it.  This nail art makes me think of being at the beach and if you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that I love being there.  Anything that reminds me of the beach makes me smile so this is definitely one of my favourite nail art looks.  If you try this look on your own nails, tweet the picture at me.

Picture of the Month: Tanzania

When I saw this picture, I had to pause and admire it.  The picture is of Ol Doinyo Lengai also known as the ‘Mountain of God’ and it is an active volcano in Tanzania.  I studied Geology in university and loved it so I’m often fascinated by things that remind me of the subject, things like this volcano.  When you combine my love for travel with that for geology, it’s not surprising that I’ve chosen this photograph as a Travel Picture of the Month.  Needless to state, I have now added Tanzania to my list of places to visit.  Have you been there before?  What was it like for you?

Nail Art: Musical nails

I can’t remember what site I first saw music notes on nails but I was immediately taken by them.  I love black and white and introducing a music note into the theme made the look more interesting for me.  I did this look almost a year ago so I’m not surprised by the shaky lines.  I like to think my lines would be smoother now after all the nail art and design I’ve done :-)   Basically, this art was created by Continue reading

Tunde Aladese’s Lagos

Tunde Aladese

1.Describe Lagos in 3 words.

Grimy. Unapologetic. Amorphous.

2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Lagos?

I don’t think I have a favourite thing.  Going to the beach can be nice but so can going to listen to music or going to the movies (which you can do pretty much anywhere).  An interesting facet of Lagos and its people is its love of partying and dance Continue reading

Here are links to some great stuff for you to read on the internet.

I think E. Jean Carroll is the wittiest & most sensible agony aunt out there.  I love how she answered this question on how to manage a boss with a temper.

It is painful and difficult to accept but we are in this position because we said ‘yes’ to it.  This post explains that concept simply.

An anti-malaria vaccine could be closer than we think.  Read this article to find out more.

If like me you’re into social media then you’ll be interested in this article on the social media networks to watch in 2014.

How to stay positive.

‘Good things only happen to other people.’  What to do if you feel this way.
