The Bible Says You Shouldn’t Cook For Him


Every two to three weeks there’s a “Should women cook for their husband or not” debate on twitter. Even Noble got caught in it recently and is trying to change the narrative. But since it’s somehow decided not to leave our twitter calendar I decided to weigh in on the topic from my angle.Now it sounds preposterous that the Bible supports you not to cook for your man but bear with me, I’ll explain using a few scriptures.
Remember the story of Mary, Martha and Jesus? The story can be found in Luke 10: 38 – 42. You don’t have to go looking for the Bible I know you don’t have, the story is right here:
38. As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
39. She had a sister called Mary,who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.
40. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41. “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered,“you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Now Martha had chosen the path of the jollof rice warrior. She had chosen to see to it that the meat portions are like the huge ones Yoruba women serve not my kinsmen from the East. But the Lord had better ideas. He taught her what was important and this is what he’d been trying to teach since.
At this point you’re wondering how does this concern your man, well the Lord wants you to tell your man that there are more important things than cooking.

If he’s hard of hearing or missed a Lagos trip due to an ear infection, here’s another scripture to clear his doubts:
 2. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
3. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’b ”
That’s Matthew 4: 2-4.
He shall not live by bread alone so if he’s hungry and wants you to cook, slide a huge Amplified Bible into his hands so he gets filled. If he’s still complaining or if he’s of the “We will not take it” clan, ask him to read the last scripture again especially the “fasted for forty days” part slowly. Then ask him the question, “the Christ you want to be like (definition of Christian duhhh) did he have two heads?”
Thank you and you’re welcome. No need to mention. 😉😊

Kylie Jenner accused of ‘Plagiarising’ her New Eyeshadow Palette

By BellaNaija.com

Kylie Jenner recently released a new eyeshadow palette 3 days ago, kyshadow as she calls it, and it sold out in one minute. With the fast success of this palette, similar to Kylie’s other cosmetics like her lip kits that sell out in minutes, the success also came with a little shade.

It all started when New Zealand-based beauty Youtuber, Shannon Harris (aka Shaaanxo), tweeted a picture of Kylie’s eyeshadow palette next to a similar one from her own makeup line – which at just $11 is much cheaper than Kylie’s $42 version. Shannon kept the snap caption-free, and instead just used a couple of emojis, the frog and a cup of tea.


The shade didn’t go unnoticed, the twitter-verse beauty community had their say on the matter. Beauty enthusiasts like Doyin Adelekun, TheBossette Doyin on Youtube did swatches of both palettes to compare.

After all the backlash against the similar palettes, Shannon tries to clear the air with these tweets saying she will still buy Kylie’s palette and that most eyeshadow palettes look similar.

MEN STYLE - Denola Grey’s Style Is Alternative & Daring & An Inspiration For Modern Fashion


 Venessa Obasi for StyleVitae


Denola Grey has become a man after my fashion heart with his very alternative fashion sense and very detailed execution with every look he dons. To put it in short, he makes my fashion heart go pitter-patter. 
Evidently, he has carved a niche for himself in the menswear fashion industry and as a menswear influencer with his edgy fashion options an d unconventional styled pieces.
His style interpretation has a distinct quirk and androgyny to it, and certainly makes a case for some women’s fashion (a few I know I can throw on).
His skinny jeans, belted looks and bold colours makes him a fashion fave for men and some women hence the reason we have compiled this list.
Take a look at his brutal slayage
