5 Necessary Hygiene Skills Everyone Should Know

Applying  Deordarants  is not optional, the  skin has a hidden foul smell that  can  be triggered by  little  activities, once sweats  are produced, the smell becomes  offensive. 
Get Deordarants  type that is suitable for your skin and use  it. 

Brushing  Your  Teeth
 If you  can't do it for yourself, please  do it for others, I don't know how someone will go a whole  day without  brushing  their  teeth .

People around you  smell your breath, maintain a  fresh breath,use breath-freshening  mouth wash ,which neutralizes Odor,  breath -freshening mouth washes are  easier on the taste  bud and contains  low alcohol  content 
Antibacterial   risers are so good in counteracting  plague and gingivitis

Use brush that is good for your  gum texture and  toothpaste  that  has protective  elements. 
Wash your mouth  after every meal. 

You don't  walk around  smelling like   rotten  fish, wash your cloths as soon as you  wear them. Do not try to cover the smell with  spray, it only  creates  foul smell. Put them in water and wash with  soap or detergent  suitable for  the  material and color, washing machine  makes washing  easier these days. 


Bacteria can easily  grow under your nail,, don't try biting  off your  nails using  your teeth, it is  irritating  
Soak  the tip of your  fingernails  in a warm, soapy water  for about  3 minutes, then use a nail brush or a clean tooth brush to scrub all over your  fingernails, use nail clippers to cut your  nails straight across at the  beginning of  the  opaque, overgrown  tips. 


Rinse your  hair thoroughly  with warm water ,condition your  hair with  shampoo, if you  have  long hair, gently  massage shampoo  into the  roots of your  hair. Do not shampoo the end of your hair  if you  have  long hair. Rinse your  hair and  squeeze  out the excess water. 
Dry with  hair dryer.,do this  at least  every  week

Ladies Put Your Panties Out In The Sun!!

With  my body covered up  in foam from my bathing  Soap,stretched out inside the  bath tub,I had my shower  cap on to prevent  water  from splashing  all over my hair, I wore a weave-on,getting it wet means  making  myself uncomfortable and  calling on my  hair dresser  sooner than I  scheduled, I was  having fun  playing with the  warm water, I tried  to act the  little " kids in the village  stream", I will  lift one leg up then drop it and lift the  other, my first attempt was  successful, the  second attempt saw  my left  leg  drop  off my right hand that  held  it and landed on the  small bucket  at the  edge of the  tub, I looked  down and  saw the  bucket   was  upside down and the  content  emptied on the  bathroom  floor, it was  my  underwear.

My panties, my bra and knickers, I soaked them inside  warm water, added  bleach  inside and covered  the  bucket. I planned to wash them and put them out  in the sun using  my hanger, and later  iron them,

My underwears are my most  important clothing  items, I take out time to hand-wash them then put them out for the sun to dry them, I use dryers  before to dry them, before my mum  educated  me on the  importance of  the  heat from  sunlight  to my underpants ,so I allow  my underwear  dry up in the  sun, then I iron them, and put  them in their  separate  drawers ,

Yes I have different  underwears for different  times

I have the  sanitary  underwear for  my monthly   flow,I wash them separately,and keep them in a drawer and  I don't  use them until  my next  period

I have my  dross, which I make sure are baggy and they are  made from cotton, I wear them when the  weather is  hot,to allow free flow of air

I have my normal  panties, this includes the  G-strings  ,lacy panties. and all fancy  materials

I buy new set of  panties  every  three months and  I always  buy in dozens,I need enough  because I  change  my underwear  after each  bath.

My cousin's  friend sometime ago saw my underwear  where  I hang them to dry in the  sun and  she asked  why One person should  have  so many underwears? And why I had to put them out in the  public? Didn't  I know that  underwears  are supposed to be kept  private?

I  was not surprised at her comment  because  underwears are considered  private, but we hardly  think about the  health implication of whatever  method we use in looking after our underwears.

A lot of women have  very  few  underwears,many uses same panties  for their  period  and ordinary  days, they  wash their  panties  in the  little  water  remaining in the  bucket  after  bath, while  some  wash from their  bath  water and  spread inside  the  room, some  even hang  towels over their  panties and  spread  multiple  clothes on top of the  panties.

Leaving the  underwear  inside the  bedroom and bathroom is  very wrong, it helps micro  organism  such as  fungus,  to grow, this fungus breeds better in moist   places, it causes infections to the  person wearing it.

The  sun has  ultra violet rays which  helps to sterilise  the underwear  and remove all the moisture that  would have remained if they  are left to dry indoors.

A lot of women  experiences itching on their  vagina labia and scratches, they  see it as normal, the dark  patches on the inner thighs,the  swollen labia and the  redness after scratching  the labia are all indications of infection  from unhygenic lifestyle.

Safe Methods To Keep The Underwear  Clean And Safe,( Hygienic  lifestyle  For The Ideal Women.)

Soak your  panties in  warm water, make sure you  soak the  coloured panties  separately ,
 add detergent and bleach and cover, allow  them stay for about half an hour, then wash, giving  special  attention to the  middle of the  panties which  is where  covers the  vagina  opening.

Spread on the  hangers and  put them out  in the  sun, make sure it's a safe  place away  from  dust, make sure they are well dried  by the  sun before  taking  them inside.

Iron them, one by one, don't  use iron heat to dry up wet panties,

keep them in a drawer  or toilet  bag, where you  can stack  one on top of the other.

Buy pant liners, it helps keep the   panties  safe from  stain, because the  vagina is naturally  moist, the discharge  stains the panties, putting  liners in the middle of the panties  helps out, as all the  discharge  will be absorbed by the  liners, which you will  afterwards  take  out, it helps the  panties last  longer and keeps it free from  ugly  stains.

Buy cotton  panties  ,it absorbs  sweat better,

Don't  wear one pant  a whole day, as a matter of fact, every woman should  shower  at least  twice a day,change your  panties  after every  bath.

Don't  use your  sanitary  pants  on ordinary  days, keep them for your  monthly  flows ,after which you  wash and iron them and keep them for next time.

Buy panties  every three months, don't  use one  pant until it is torn.after three  months  it must  have served  its purpose.

Your  inner cleanliness is  much more important than  a glowing  outter cleanliness, start up a  healthy   living  today.

Young Man Living With HIV Virus Seeks For Woman With HIV Virus For Relationship.

A young  man with  instagram  username  @vicent4926  left a comment   stating  that  he is HIV positive and  he is looking for a  lady  who is HIV positive  and resides in Lagos for a relationship. 

This comment  came. Up two  days before the  December  1st world.   HIV awareness  day. 
His comment  attracted  series of  reactions, some young  women  came up indicating that  they are  HIV positive. While some  people   Lashed out , and called  him different  names. 

We do know that viruses  mutate, the  fact that two  people  have HIV virus doesn't  mean the two  are acceptable to each other,she may have  different  strand of the  virus  that  could be  deadly to   each other's   system. 

Abstinence  may be a toll order  considering the  seemingly   huge  desire for  sex amongst  today's  people, but  this. is obviously  the  reason  the  HIV rate  is very  high in Nigeria. 
If Abstinence is  hard, Why not use condom? 

Safe sex. Is definitely  a better  route, instead of  going out and  getting  intimate with  other  people  living with HIV, and indulging in  unprotected  sex with  them and  other people. 

Let's  learn to keep it safe, if we want to  eradicate  or  even minimize  HIV virus .

Important Things Ladies Should Consider Before Dressing Up For A Wedding

We get ready for  weddings excitedly,for various  reasons  we always  see weddings as a joyful  event(ofcourse it is) so we are always   all about  dressing  up to impress  as well as feel good and look  our best .

Maybe you are an all weekend  wedding  guest   or  you  have  not been to one  in a long  time, it's  important we take  a little  review of  what  we should wear to  a wedding and  what  should  stay  at home.

To help put it straight   here is  what a fashion  expert   has   to say.


Most  solid  colors and simple  patterns  are the best, you  would want to  look your best and  comfortable with the  cameras  everywhere !choose a narrower  perceived width with  horizontal  stripes.


Remember the  first  rule of thumb? "if you  can wear it to church  you  can probably   wear it to a wedding "
While we agree you  should  lool  hot,weddings isn't the  appropriate  place to  show  off your   body, so go for  something  longer and more  appropriate.


Having a cue  of where the  wedding  is taking  place will  help your  choose


Consider the  setting  and time of the  wedding to decide how to dress.


Gone  are the  days  when  we are forbidden to  wear  black  dresses to wedding, LBD isn't  only   dinner and  dates  wear  any longer, visit the  mall and  pick up some  beautiful   black  dresses, you  are probably  going to be wearing  them  plenty.


Go for nice  dress  shoes  you  can wear  comfortably  for few  hours


For the  artfully -styled  photos of the  bridal  party with  family ,dress in similar shades of same  color palette.

Amanda Modise Told The Story Of Her Struggles With Depression

What I am about to say will either help you or someone next  you, please do take your time to read this, I am about to unpack a bit of my university journey.

My name is Palesa Amanda Modise, I matriculated in 2014 at waterberg high school and yes I was one of the learners who couldnt wait to go to university, little did I know that there was so much to prepare for.

2015 January ,I got accepted at wits and I was excited because well it was one of   the well known universities in our country and world wide. The first mistake I made because of not knowing what to expect , was not applying for a bursary, I focused more on studying and passing than preparing for university Academic requirements, tuition and all,. Well  I got to university and the first thing they wanted was the registration fee which was a bit  task for my parents but they made things happen,

I'm grateful for that.  When I got to class language barrier played a huge role in getting to understand anything in class. Well I managed to get residence, but now they needed 20% before I could have a room, trust me it was one of the most heart breaking time of my life because i couldnt pay it immediately, I had to sleep at one of the tv rooms right at the residence, luckily it was during orientation week and meals were given to first year students. So now I couldnt attend well because I was busy fixing my residence issues " missing out on class"
Believe when I say I was applying for bursaries and nsfas included, nsfas did accept only in june and it paid about 40% of my fees.

I failed my 1st year, I remember telling my roommate who later on became one of my best friend that I dont mind failing as long as I'm not excluded because I tried my best and unfortunately my best was not good enough.

2016 I went back, and well I couldnt go back to residence because now my parents couldnt pay and i had to go look for accomodation, I remember I had to miss a whole month of school because I couldnt make it to school. But because I was repeating I was studying on my own with my previous material. I managed to pass that year. Still applying for bursaries yet no response.

2017 I went back to do my 2nd year and all I can say is it really went from good to the worst. Nothing was making sense, financially emotionally, some of the people know me as the girl who does braids yes I did that only because I need to patch up where my parents couldnt pay eg my rent, food and other basics.

I failed my 2nd year and I decided that I needed to come back home in limpopo because now, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety in september. That was  when I knew that its either I am killing myself or I go back home,

I got back to the drawing board. I told my dad and luckily he agreed. I thank the lord for that, I thank him for giving me an understanding father, a father that knows how to comfort his children. I have been home for a year and I  have been accepted back  to the unviersity to study again.

 So I would like to encourage anyone out there who is struggling to take a time out when necessary. Mental health is important.

Meet Amanda Modise, A Young South African Who Battled Depression.

Amanda Modise is a young South African undergraduate who grew up in a home filled with violence, what she described as a love-hate relationship with her  two fighting parents, saw Young Amanda struggled to find a way out ,for her survival and to create a new life different from what her parents offered her,

In the midst of many needs and wants  and having little to sustain her,she slipped into depression, having no one else to turn to, she  turned back to her father.

Omaleeblog had a Heart to Heart talk with her.....Below are the excerpts.

Tell me briefly about your self, your growing up and your relationship with your parents and siblings?


I am 22 years of age, i have 3 siblings they are all girls. I am the first child. I was raised by my father and step mother. My relationship with my mother was rocky (still is) although I now stay with her. Well my siblings are scattered because my home was sold due to cirmcumstances. Me and my siblings still talk now and then, I only share a mother with the 2nd born and the last two share a mother

All of you share the same father?


Yes, we do

How  did your  family  influence your  life? The  decisions you  made, would you say it's  being a positive one? Something you  would  look back and  be proud of?


I think my parents not being able to provide most of the things made me to study as hard as I can so that I can get entry to the university.  Although we didnt prepare much for it in terms of applying for bursaries because I thought everything was sorted.  My family taught me respect, being humble and confident in everything I do. There are also some traumatic experiences me and my siblings had when growing up. There was domestic violence like in any 9/10 families in south africa. University was my excape plan from that.

Talking about  domestic violence, did you ever witness  fights  between your  parents?


Ever since  I was about 5 yes. I can recall almost all of them.

Did it make you hate your parents?


I think its more of a love hate relationship. Love- my dad all he can to make sure that we go to school, he provided for everything.

Hate- he used to beat my mother, step mothers in front of us. One thing also was that he didnt want my biological mother to come visit us vice versa, maybe he thought he was doing what was best for us because my mother used to leave us with the neighbours to go drink and party with friends ( this still happens and it takes me back to when I was young) i just wish my siblings didn't see all of those because as much as it traumatised me i think it will too to them. Last night i had a dream about the fights, they keep on coming back

Having witnessed all of these, I'm  curious to know, how you  deal with people of the opposite sex, and your  relationship with people generally? Do you  see the world as being cruel to you and/or do you see the  world as a cruel  place?


In the past i had relationships that never lasted because apparently i was a bitter person of which i think at some point it was true. I got annoyed easily by opposite sex, and i never allowed anyone to beat me up, i always saw red flags from afar. But yes i did date and as much as bad things happen i always saw life in a positive way. To always want whats best for my siblings. I am a bubbly person when im used to the person i communicate with but i do have a problem of opening up because i don't know who to trust. I cant talk to my mother about the things she did to hurt us and her lifestyle, honestly i dont know how to approach her.

If you  didn't  go to the university, what else would you have  loved to do?


Played netball as a profession.

Why can't you talk to your mum?

Like i said previously, i cant open up. I dont know how to put things up without hurting someone's feelings although it is how i see things.
What is your  motto in life?


Do your best and let God do the rest

What is your ideal family setting?


One where there is respect, whether young or old. Full of love and encouraging others to be their best
What do you plan on doing after school?

To become a mining engineer. I will finish one way or the other.

Since the  finances aren't  coming enough, how do you  plan to pull through?


I have applied for jobs and learnerships, i already went for interviews and im still waiting for the go ahead. I got a learnership for bank seta for next year and during these holidays im still waiting for pep to confirm. I know it doesnt sound ideal but every cent counts

What is your motivation?


I believe i was created for a purpose and to become someone great. What i am going through is just a platform that God made for me but the end of it i have overcame the cirmcumstances. I am winner no matter what.

Do you  like music or movie?
I love  music

Who is your favourite artist?


I dont really have a  favourite artist, i listen to beyonce, rihanna actually almost everyone as long as i hear a message in the song. Or just want to dance (on my own yes, i lobe my own space where i can let my hair down😊 once in a while)

Lol, I must say, you're a very intelligent girl, I hope somehow the  government and concerned  individuals /organisations  will read your story and  come to your  assistance

Thank you so much. 🌻

What do you have to say to young  people out there  who found themselves  in  violent  homes, especially  those  dealing with depression?


I would encourage them to speak up to a stranger, to not put all the weight of this world on their shoulders and know that failure is inevitable but also is success. Stay in their lane no matter what and be humble, have lots and lots of respect. In terms of depression, i would say they must take a day's work at a time. I would also encourage them to play sport its helps alot.

Thank you for speaking to omaleeblog


Thanks for giving me your time.

Infatuation (A Crush Texting My Man Through Me) Part 1

Bent over a pile of books
I raised my head to see the Duke
With the rim of his spectacles shinning
Countenance calm, a smile emerged, then laughter followed
His bass fluttering
That voice... It was the voice!
There was something his about voice that made my heart beat faster
His smile had a way of making me giddy and satisfied all at once.
What if I told him he makes me giddy?
What if I said he makes my heart beat faster?
What if...?

He would tell me stories of the past
 Kiss my forehead when it's midnight's past
Try to sing Timaya's bang
Call my name when in pains pang
Ask me if I'm hungry a thousand times
Tell me the truth without no lies
Twenty and one years apart
Said my other part
He'll never have you in his heart.

Snap! I shrugged to reality
As he pulled out a script of age
Look! He said, flipping through "I am going to show this to my children "
Then, I realized
I was his child
Nothing more.
