The ones who are like “yah I just ate a tomato and an old sock for … Continue reading Eat Clean, Think Dirty!
Friday March 6th, 2015, marked 58 years since my home country Ghana declared its independence from colonial rule. Formerly known as the Gold Coast, Ghana was the first sub-Saharan nation to gain independence. This is a source of great pride, and we have so many reasons to celebrate. Every time I go home, I’m excited … Continue reading OOTD: Ghanaian Independence Day Slayage

Dahlings! Adjpants here, reporting live from the Winter Wonderland that is currently London. I’m normally not a huge fan of Christmas.

I was blessed to grow up in a home where both Nigerian and Ghanaian delicacies appeared on the dinner table. Whenever I visit … Continue reading A Taste of Home: 805 Restaurant, North London
I was devastated when my buddy Tung from the office resigned, explaining that he was starting a family business. He then said “We’re opening up a Vietnamese street food restaurant in the city.” I looked up from drying my tears, my attention and appetite piqued. Fast-forward a few months down the line and his restaurant, … Continue reading They See Me Rolling: Roll’d Hardware Lane, Melbourne, Australia
Here are my two favourite lies to tell myself. 1) I will be one day become Mrs Denzel Washington. 2) Frozen yoghurt, as opposed to ice-cream, is GOOD FOR YOU. Yes. I know that both of these delicious treats (ice cream and yoghurt, that is, not ice cream and Denzel) are pretty much made of … Continue reading Froyo Frenzy: Yo-Chi Frozen Yoghurt Bar, Melbourne, Australia
Research has shown that eating at Treehouse Lounge is proven to make you more attractive. My research, that is. This sultry, sexy joint on Carlisle Street is one of my absolute favourites.
