    HOW TO MAKE HIM RESPECT YOU

    You don’t often come across articles on how to make a man respect you. Do you? But there are unlimited books and articles on how to make a man love you or love you more. This is because we’ve been fed with the stereotype that ‘men want respect, women want love’. There are even a bunch of books bearing that title. I don’t know about you, but for me, there’s no love without respect. I feel loved and honoured when I’m respected. Why do you need to know how to make him respect you? Because a man may love you and not respect you because they’ve also been made to…

    SIMPLE MORNING ROUTINE FOR A HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE DAY

    The outcome of each day and even of our lives is determined by the things we consistently do. What’s the hype about mornings anyway? Because every lifestyle blogger seems to have something to write about morning routines and morning habits. Well, morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Ruin the morning, ruin the day, holds true so many times. I understood the power of morning on my birthday last year. Apart from the fact that I was a stressed new mom, some persons annoyed me in the morning, and as much as I tried to enjoy the rest of the day, I just couldn’t. I decided that…

    Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Do a Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

    Love is beautiful, and weddings are a celebration of love. Pre-wedding photo shoot has recently become a trend and now it seems a wedding is not complete without pre-wedding photos to grace our eyes. Although this trend has been in existence from way back, but definitely not in the way it’s done now. Back then, couples visit a photo studio to have one or two shots with boring poses; but now, outdoor photography with creative poses have taken over. While some people welcome the trend with both hands, some couldn’t be bothered, some think it’s a waste of time and resources, and some others don’t understand why they should have…

    12 Qualities of Super-Attractive Women

    What makes a woman attractive? Being attractive goes beyond good looks, even though it could start from there, because there are habits that make you look beautiful. Attractiveness has more to do with what is inside of you, what you think of yourself and others, and your perception of things. Perhaps one of the statements made by one of my lecturers which remains indelible in my memory is, “Your personality is more important than your capacity.” An experienced industrial and organizational psychologist who has been a member of countless interview panels, he explained that, during interviews, the personality of an individual makes up 60% of what an employer looks out…

    Tips for Flat Tummy after Pregnancy : Real Moms Share

    Giving life to another human being is such an awesome job, so serious a job; it could make you kiss your banging body goodbye. While some women are lucky enough to have bodies that do not retain any effect of pregnancy, some of us aren’t that fortunate as pregnancy does a number on our bodies. The body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy and one of these changes is stretching of the belly skin as the baby grows, which could eventually leave a woman with loose belly skin/belly pouch after delivery. While you can get a lot of information on tips for flat tummy after pregnancy or how…

    Is Love Enough? 5 Things that Make Love Work

    Is love ever enough?  Some say love is enough, some others argue that love is not enough. I’ll say it depends on individual’s definition of love. For the purpose of this post, let’s agree that love is that deep feeling of affection and attraction you have towards someone. A lot of people assume that this should be enough. After all, if you care about someone, it’s natural that you treat them right and make them happy. But this isn’t as simple as it sounds. Many relationships and marriages crash. It happens everywhere, all around us. This isn’t always as a result of lack of love. It’s not strange to find…

    One Thing You Need to Stop Doing in Your Relationship to Be Extremely Happy

    I remember feeling offended by what hubby said one day. So I got moody, gave laconic replies to his words, and frowned all over the place. In my mind, I expected him to know that I was hurting, so I went on like that for hours while he carried on normally. He probably thought I wanted to be calm that day. Then I remembered teaching at Sunday school that assumption is the lowest level of knowledge and a precursor to poor communication. I put my teaching into practice and told him we needed to talk. I poured out my mind to him, he did the same, and we were able…

    8 Things Never to Say to Your Partner During a Quarrel

    Conflicts are normal occurrences in every relationship/marriage. Conflicts cannot be prevented, they can only be managed. One of the ways to manage conflicts is not to say things that could hurt your partner in ways that will do an irreparable damage to your relationship. Conflicts will come and go, but words spoken during conflicts (even if you didn’t mean them) could linger for long, and even lead to the end of a relationship. I learnt this the hard way, and I shared my story here. It is usually hard to set things right after saying mean and hurtful things to each other during a fight. It is better you do…

    How to Discover Your Hidden Potentials

    Are you experiencing self-doubts? Or have you ever experienced self-doubt? Well, welcome to the program… it is more common than you think. Many of us can relate to self-doubts because we don’t think we are as amazing as we really are, when in fact, we are just cutting ourselves short. According to a popular quote by Marianne Williamson, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a…

    I’m not even going to deceive you by saying, ‘beauty comes from within’, ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and any other clichéd expressions we use in pretending that physical appearance isn’t a big deal.  While beauty means different things to different people, most of us can tell when a woman is pleasing to the eyes.  Although genetics play a crucial role in our physical characteristics, what we do to stay beautiful is much more important.  Each time I engage in some beauty habits, I see vivid results, and this proves that what you do with what you have is more important than what you have.  What are…
