50 Tips That’ll Help Your Marriage by Happenings


Here are what may well be the 50 best marriage tips ever.
1. If your goal is to have a satisfying marriage with longevity, make sure you are accountable for the part you play in the relationship—good or bad. When you are in denial about your part in the relationship then you are no better than a child flinging sand at another child in a sandbox. When you take responsibility for your part in the marriage, only then will you be able to connect with your partner in a mature, intimate way. - Carin Goldstein, LMFT
2. Research consistently shows that touching more creates a stronger bond by releasing oxytocin. Hold hands, rub shoulders, hug, kiss, give high-fives or even fist-bumps or bottom pats. When you give a quick hug or kiss, try to lengthen it to at least 5 or 10 seconds for more effective results! - Lori Lowe, MA
3. Learn how to agree to disagree. No two people agree on everything, and that's okay, but it's important to be okay with each other's differences. - Lee Bowers, LP, PhD
4. Sometimes it's not about the amount of money you spend on a gift, it's about the thought that goes into something. Take the time to write a thoughtful note every so often saying what you love and appreciate about him/her. Drop it in his/her briefcase or purse so he/she will find it unexpectedly and it will brighten up his/her day. - Suzanne K. Oshima, Dating Coach

DORIS ONYEMA: Beautiful, Boisterous, Amiable


Doris Onyema is a fast growing celebrity make-up artist in Lagos. Though she studied Mass Communication, the passion for Make-up artistry has always been running in her.
This influenced her decision to delve into Make-up artistry after graduation. She was trained at the Unveil Institute, Lagos. This boisterous and amiable lady talks to Azuka Ogujiuba of ThisDay about her Passion. Enjoy. In case you missed Doris’s previous posts on this blog, find it here and here.
How did it all start as a makeup artist?
When I was in school, I spent my pastime making up for my female friends in the hostel. And I won the hearts of most of my female friends with my little make up skills. This prompted me to enroll at Unveil Institute in Lagos. So, after I graduated from Unveil Institute, I was employed by Bunmi Oyeniyi as a makeup instructor after which I was made to head the Institute.
What was it like working for Unveil Institute? What did you learn and how has the experience influenced your work?

PISSED UK-Based Radio & TV Presenter,


Yeah it is about that time where I grab my laptop in order to do something that I am very passionate of: Writing and sharing my point of view.
Nope, its not about a big celebrity that misbehaved in one way or another. It is about this music video that is currently trending. That naked Lady showcasing her seduction skills rather than the usual dope, off the chain 16 BARS that we always expect a rapper to do, goes by the name of Maheeda.
This video is stirring up much controversy , due to Maheeda’s naked self frolicking around for some overly-hormonal Gentlemen who seem to enjoy the spectacle. It’s a shame nobody will actually really listen to the song and rate this artist according to her musical skills.
Aren’t musicians supposed to deliver vocally or lyrically? Lyrically speaking there are no punch lines in this session. Sentences such as : Never find me in Okada…Me I break a leg BUT you break nothing…If you think sey you spoil Me I don rotten…

PHOTOS: Popular Singer Conceals Pregnancy By Wearing Baggy Men's Clothes


Mommy-to-be Ciara recently revealed that she’s close to her delivery date, but thanks to this Lanvin Menswear Fall 2014 ensemble, we wont be able to tell. 

Last night, she successfully camouflaged her baby bump in a pant suit while walking the red carpet of the MusiCares pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles.

"I kind of want to take the theme that ‘baggy is the new sexy.’ I don’t know, I just want to be comfortable. When I can’t wear heels anymore, I won’t wear heels. My Jordans and my Uggs will be my best friends, but it’s all about being comfortable. Of course, I like to get sexy, but I believe that pregnancy within itself is sexy and I don’t believe I have to show you that I still can be. I kind of like it actually not being about abs and all that stuff. I really love this phase that I’m going through in my life and I just want to live in it. I just want to be a ‘mommy-to-be.’"

CHAN 2014: What I Told Eagles At Half Time Against Morocco – Keshi


Super Eagles Head Coach Stephen Keshi has given some insight on what transpired in the dressing room when his team was trailing 0-3 in Saturday’s crunch quarter final battle against the Atlas Lions of Morocco.
The Big Boss in the post-match conference attended by PREMIUM TIMES said he told his players that they were simply not playing their game.
“What I told them at half time was that we were not the one playing like that, I told them they were giving too much respect to the Moroccans.
Even though they are a good team, they don’t deserve such from us, we are supposed to take our game to them and that is what they did in the second half.
I told them I want to see the same character or more like they displayed in the game against Bafana Bafana and they did that,” he said.
Also, the captain of the Eagles, Chigozie Agbim, said his colleagues rightly admitted they were only a shadow of themselves in the first half and made the decision to right their wrongs in the second half.
The goalkeeper also stated the players’ resolve not to return to Nigeria but wait for the final of the tournament and possibly lift the trophy.
Keshi is not new to masterminding comebacks as he similarly did with the Eagles of Mali in 2010 to come back from four goals down to tie Angola 4-4 in an Africa Nations Cup match.
“Yes I remember the Mali game but this one today is something else,” the Eagles coach said.
