Hi! Two food posts in one day!. It's safe to say I'm trying to put on a little weight (my Ghanaian friends will tease me if I dare say "add weight") and stay healthy as well.
My new obsession is smoothies!!=
Especially since I have this awesome blender my mom gave me, it's old school but so much better than any new one I have tried. You can blend fine or blend it in a way that you will have small juicy chunky surprises :) all up to you. I've tried different fruits but today it's all about the mango! I haven't yet met anyone who does not like this fruit. Some ppl say it causes them to run(in other words, diarrhea...lol) but if you take about a cupfull, you should be fine each time.
Also, cut up the fruit into cubes or slices the night before and put in the freezer. Blend the next day for a chilled smoothie :)
Also courtesy of Conscious Life News, below are several options for the smoothie lover and their benefits.
The popular magazine had its annual Pink Ball which highlights breast cancer awareness. The party for a good cause brought out some of Nigeria's fashionistas and below are the styles of the evening.
The uber-fabulous designer Zizi Cardow showed up in one of her pieces. A very playful, young choice for the evening. Loves it!
This is a very appropriate cocktail dress for the evening. I love the delicate pink, the beautiful fabric and the fit is awesome on her figure. Great choice!
Funmi Iyanda went with a Deola Sagoe creation. I'm not too sure about this one. I mean two of my favorite Nigerian women and deola Sagoe, I absolutely look up to so they both can't go wrong in my book.
Ituen Basi is seen here in one of her beaded creations which I love. I'm not ecstatic about the shoe choice but fab lady all the same.
I love the cut of this dress and little accents like the fab shoes and cross necklace add some elegance to the otherwise simple dress.
Below is a write up by my best friend's big sis on the whole situation happening now. Please read and reflect on this life where we should be our brother's keeper...regardless of color. Enjoy."Let me just say for the record, I never thought George Zimmerman was a bad man. He’s the kind of neighbor anyone, I in particular, would like to have because I hope someone cares enough about my property to join the neighborhood watch because I sure as hell won't.However he was negligent in the execution of his duties, which resulted in the death of a young man. This fact is irrefutable. He was warned to stay in his car, chose to ignore those rules and inevitably got himself hurt. It’s very unfortunate that what should have been a logical discussion of the repercussions for ignoring police instructions, which resulted in the death of a human being, denigrated into practically a race war. 2-degree murder charges should never have been filed. This was purely a manslaughter case. …
