Why is self-promotion so hard? -Lessons from the remarkable “E”s

Is it possible to be surrounded by too much inspiration? That was certainly the experience from attending the International Women’s Day Breakfast Meeting, organised by Google Ghana at the La Villa La Boutique on Wednesday 15th March.

Depression: Why religious counseling didn’t work for me

We are all feeling some type of way about the recent suicide incidents on the news lately. It’s nothing short of disturbing but perhaps, inevitably, it’s finally opening conversations about how much we really know about mental health, the stigmatization and general reception to its causes.

The “Obolo” word: Fat-shaming needs to stop round here

Before I do my slimtea detox review. Can I just say how annoyed  I am about the guys who were yelling “Obolo, Obolo” at the cinema, when I was watching Logan.  Yea, I still think you are  idiots Awesome movie, by the way.

F*** Love, How about a little respect?

My mother told me this sometime ago. She said, “Maame, you are an intelligent girl, there are things you will see, hear and learn that will be hard to ignore. You will want to speak up because you mind will tell you this isn’t right. But speaking up won’t always give you happiness. You will…

  I’ve always liked lemons. Whether it’s the flavour of a sweet, deodorant or for cooking. But water? Not so much. But it’s hard not to see the effect lack of water is having on my body. Not so great. So I think trying lemon water became more of a fun thing to do than really…

Getting fit stress-free

My 4 take-aways from Nana Addo’s victory

  It’s the second week of December and i think the country is still reeling from the election drama and shock. It’s all we can talk about. Like i said earlier on my Facebook page, the whole nation clearly got together to gorge on a sensational telenovela with different expected outcomes. Only this wasn’t a…

2 weeks with my GTD system
