Boss Tips You Need As An Employee

Majority of us happen to be employees (even as entrepreneurs of small businesses) because we live in a world where capitalism reigns supreme and every penny counts. Twitter NG exploded on Monday because of a certain company mistreating their employees. That is the inspiration behind this post.

Nigeria is a fairly good place to work, so not everyone may have experienced the negative side of the coin. However, some employers take advantage of the lawlessness embedded in the fabric of our society to exploit hardworking Nigerians.

NYSC

On carnival day, wearing my “medical team” T-shirt. That’s my hair! I did twist outs in camp

.Last week was my passing out parade! From July last year till now, I have been serving my country through a scheme called NYSC. Every Nigerian graduate is forced into a regimented camp for 3 weeks in different parts of the country and has to work most times without pay or with very little in the state deployed to, after camp for a year. Nysc involves Nigerian graduates below 30 years dedicating a year after graduation to serving the country.

My Growth Retention Hair Care Regimen as a Busy Professional

Yay! Hope you enjoyed refreshing old posts with me for May. I’m going to be posting my updated hair care regimen. I cut my hair (before picture at the end) because it was hard to manage as I got very busy, however, I managed to grow about 5 inches from January to June. This regimen is subject to change but this is what works for me currently as a busy professional in the Nigerian (Lagos) climate, with 4b/4c hair, high-porosity and high-density hair trying to retain length. So stick around if you are a busy naturalista. Continue reading “My Growth Retention Hair Care Regimen as a Busy Professional”

Dealing With Painful Menstrual Periods (1) – Nightmares of a few

This is my late arrival to celebrating women’s month. Periods is something that is still unfortunately regarded as taboo. Something to be discussed in whispers, something disgusting. I believe it is simple biology and proper discussions need to be held on it to break the power of the myths woven around it. This is a two-part post on painful periods. The first explores the personal stories of women I know and admire, while the second is getting professional advice on how to better manage it. The intention of this is to provide help to women who have painful periods but are ignorant about it or lack access to a gynaecologist.

From The Dandelion, Came The Bamboo.

As I relaunch my blog, I thought about all the cool names to name my blog, which seemed fitting since I want to establish myself as a brand – a purpose driven woman. However, I still stuck to OnyinyeOlufunmi, a combination of my first (Igbo) and middle (Yoruba) name because I don’t think anything else captures my essence. Not either of them alone, but as it, delicately woven together to reflect who I was, I am and will be.

Break And Growth

Some of my readers and friends have been sending concerned messages asking where I am, if I’m safe. I’ve been out of reach for a month both online and offline. This post is a testimony kind of post. I’m so grateful to be alive and to be loved. I was robbed while on a trip but it was not just any type of robbery, it was scary but I’m super grateful to God for preserving me and helping me learn from it.
