MAN IN THE MIRROR

I was trying really hard to concentrate on the text before me when my phone beeped. It was a link to an article and as I was quite bored, I clicked on it with disinterest. Lo and behold, it was the shock of the month. Quickly I sat up... One surely didn't take a blow lying low. I was quite dazed... It was like looking in a mirror. We had similar writing styles and I could have sworn I was reading one of my works. Surely, there must be a mix-up somewhere... Quickly I got in contact with him and within twenty four hours we had established a relationship of sorts. He gave me the adroit to publish his works on my website with due reference to him. I'm super excited and honored to have the works of Chibuike Joseph Chukwudum, a talented writer and colleague on my site healthglamm.com ... Our vision : To bring health within the reach of the common man.

CORSETS AND VAGINA WIDENING



The topic must have caught your attention isn't it? Right. Well, I don't blame you. The exact thing happened to me when I heard it.
During the interminably long public holiday, I got bored and decided to do tidy Bantu knots on my hair. Putting myself together, I headed to one of the hair making areas of town.

AZONTOTWINS :KEEPING FIT THE AFRICAN WAY


What do you do when what you've searched for far and wide appears right in front of you? In my case, being a sharp naija chic, I got proactive. When I learnt they organised fitness trainings for expatriates, corporate bodies and even held presidential suite dances. Omo, I became more committed to keeping fit. Like really, who wouldn't make fitness a priority with two well-toned, very single, very African young men as instructors? Ihe a na-acho

WHY ME???



"Never judge a person till you've walked in their shoes" they say.  When I hear of people whose  belongings have been snatched from the window of a moving vehicle I'm usually quick to think they weren't sharp enough or they had lost their wits. A lot of times I have imagined what I would do if confronted by a thief. Of course I always see myself being brave

TEETH WHITENING: FOR THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS


Good morning dearies. I hope the week has started on the right note for everyone. I have been having a lot of  wonderful and new experiences at GIMPA in Accra, Ghana. Informally I announce that I was selected as a participant for the Young African Leaders Initiative, West Africa and while I'm having the 3D or do I say 5D experience, I haven't forgotten Healthglamm

THE BURST CONDOM TRAGEDY


It was 4:30am on Monday morning and I had just returned from attending to the road traffic accident victim that was rushed in about an hour ago. The weekend call had been quite eventful and I needed to get at least two hours of sleep before preparing for work.
"Grrrgh grrrgh..." It was my phone ringing. I rolled my eyes in irritation and picked it up to

LASSA FEVER: MY NEAR BRUSH WITH THE VIRUS






The medical profession and it's myriad of hazards.
Each time there's news of a disease outbreak I sit back to await my mum's call and surely it comes. This time is no different. With news of the lassa fever outbreak all over the social media, mum called to ensure I was aware and was observing universal precautions.

WHEN AN ADAGE SPEAKS HEALTH AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING



I have been analysing the wisdom of putting up this article as it's not specifically concerned with health. Alas, wisdom won... I found a little window connecting the article to health and psychological well-being.
That fateful morning I came downstairs to help my sister with the preparations for breakfast.
