Are you constantly seeking ways to protect your jewelry when going on a holiday? I know I am! I usually dump all the jewelry I intend to wear in a box or pouch and they always end up tangled. I was really excited when I saw My Velvet Box Nigeria’s DIY tips on keeping jewelry safe when traveling. I knew I had to share with my Nomad girls because I found them helpful.

Over the course of running Naija Nomads, my perception of Lagos has changed a great deal. As an adrenaline junkie, I was constantly seeking an activity to satisfy my addiction. I complained to people about the limited fun options we had in Lagos and how all everyone did was going  for wedding, to the movies, clubbing or  going to watch a movie. Not that there is anything wrong with these things, it just gets monotonous and BORING! You also know...

  Having a baby abroad is becoming so popular in naija. Everyone wants their babies to have blue passports for various reasons. Dual citizenship, better health care, easy access to grants and scholarships when they get into college, more affordable college fees or just going with the flow, I think it’s a great investment and if you have the means please do not hesitate to go for it! When I had my baby 4 months ago, I was aware of...

Hey Nomads! The annual Lagos Fashion and Design Week (#LFDW) is on and designers, models, fashion bloggers, style enthusiast and fashion critics have come to play. However, I feel a very important class of persons are missing from this list….the tourist! Where are the tourists? Why isn’t Lagos, Africa’s fashion capital, flocked with tourist from all over the world or at least Africa? Why aren’t hotels fully booked? Why aren’t restaurants selling out and finally, why are ubers still available?...
