iHerb Review…the best and worst purchases!

You can’t live in Singapore more than a few months without clocking the astronomical prices of most goods and products in your everyday supermarket, and this is down to import costs and of course the long distance.

WEDDING ANNIVERSARY – THROWBACK! PART ONE

This month marks our 1 year wedding anniversary, so I decided to revisit the last year in pictures. Actually, it’s more than a year because we had 2 weddings – our traditional wedding in Lagos City Hall, Nigeria and our white wedding in Alporchinhos, Portugal. In fact, there’s a THIRD date to remember – the…
