Aloe Vera face scrub to get soft skin

Aloe Vera has never been my thing. I have dreaded this plant all my life, until you realized that although you hate the plant at the moment, it actually has some things you can benefit from.

I said ‘hated’ not ‘hate’ though. Lol.

Let me give you a little gist about why I hated this plant. Being a kid who grew up in Cameroon; a country in west Africa, my grand mom had this ever-green plant in her garden which was just by the house. In fact, it was her second house because if she was not on the farm, (by this I mean a very big portion of land almost a mile or more from the house where extensive farming in done. This is not a plantation) and it was a weekday, she will either be planting, weeding, or harvesting something from this garden. Whenever I called her ‘mama…’, she will always answer in an angelic voice of ‘Ma Nweh’ (a name given to me after my great grandmother).

I was less than six years old when I followed her into her garden. She told me to wait for her at the entrance because she was going to be in there for less than 5 minutes, and would be out in little or no time. A second seemed like forever. I sneaked myself in there and only announced my arrival into her garden with a loud scream. She ran towards me and started asking if I was alright. Carried me out of the garden, and when she looked at my hand, blood was oozing out of it like a fountain. She then asked ‘Nweh akeh’? (meaning what is the matter in my dialect). I was just crying. After calming down, I told her that I was picked by an aloe vera plant (I did not even know the name of this ‘evil plant’). It was rainy season and because everywhere was wet, I had slid in the garden and in an attempt to hold on to something, the only thing close to me was that plant and it picked my hand. I never went to that garden again in a long time.

One afternoon, my aunty returns from work and starts telling me about the benefits of aloe vera, and I am just surprised. I told her I do not want anything to do with that plant, and it’s even bitter. I told her that I will never forget how that ‘evil plant’ had made my life miserable for days.

After doing some research and experimenting or say doing a trial and error, I realized that, although I had had a bad experience, this ‘evil plant’ actually has some benefits. So today, I will be showing you how to do an aloe vera scrub for yourself. It has worked for me. consistency is king.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel

3 tablespoons of sugar

½ teaspoon of lemon juice

Procedure:

  • Take your aloe vera plant, and cut about 2 to 3 inches, depending on the thickness of your plant.
  • Remove the uneven edges, and cut transversely through the transparent layer.
  • Scrape the jelly-like part out, and put in a bowl and discard the green skin.
  • Add sugar and lemon, and mix thoroughly.
  • Wash face and pat dry.
  • Apply mixture on face and scrub in circular motions for about 1-2 minutes maximum (do not forget to go to the neck area as well).
  • Raise with warm and cold water respectively.
  • Use your toner, and moisturizer of choice.

That is all you actually need for your aloe vera facial scrub. You can do this twice a week and repeat consistently.

Note:

  • You can use aloe vera gel, and the plant can be gotten from Walmart, and any other grocery stores like African and or Asian stores near you.
  • Make sure you are not allergic to any of these products. If you are, please do not use it. I recommend that you do a patch test first on your hand.

If you have tried this facial scrub, please share your experience with me in the comment section below. Thank you, and until next time.

COVID-19: Reflection on God’s love during a Quarantine Good Friday.

16
love of God
God's amazing love

Reflection on GOD’S Love during this time.

I am just sitting on my bed after a great service online. Due to COVID-19, social gatherings have been prohibited. I loved the sermon of today. My pastor was teaching about Obedience. He said Christianity is not just about saying I am a child of God; it is about living as one. In short, Christianity is a lifestyle. With Christianity being a lifestyle, that means you do not have to struggle to live it. This ‘Christ-like’ life, has to come naturally. It should not be forced, or you should not be manipulated into acting like one. As an individual, you cannot do it on your own. You can achieve that by the grace of GOD only. He further said one thing that kills us is disobedience. As a Christian, God may tell you to do somethings and you end up not doing it because you are just being nonchalant or trying to be unruly. The funny thing is that you always know that it is God talking to you, but you choose not to obey. When you land into issues, you finally blame God. He further expatiated on a lot of things. You can like his Facebook page here.

After this service, I sat on my bed, and I thought about life, where I was, where I am, and where I am actually heading to most importantly. This made me think. I was not just thinking because I wanted to feel like a lot of Christians will feel after a well preached service. I felt the love of God after all.

What is love?

Love has a lot of definitions. It ranges from a deep passion affection, to a romantic feeling, to a great interest and pleasure in something etc. What actually caught my attention is the definition which says that; love is an affectionate greeting conveyed to someone on one’s behalf. This is exactly what Jesus did to you and I. He did that because GOD said so. If you do not believe me, read John 3:16:

 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I started thinking about the faithfulness of God in my life. God’s love, and how he has kept me. God’s love has always been there. When I look at life, I see how you and I are often quick to judge people by saying that other people do not deserve the love of Christ. A lot of people have really wandered far away from God. They do so not because they want to, but because the so-called Christians are so quick to condemn and tell them that they are worth nothing.

the love of God
God’s Love is greater than your insecurities

What the Love of God is:

The love of God is every good thing that you can phantom. Amidst this COVID-19, you may be losing hope. You may be anxious or so depressed. I am here to tell you what the love of God is like. You may have been amongst the 10,000 or more people who are being laid off by the U.S government. You may have lost a family, friend or a loved one to COVID-19. Your business, or school and other things that bring you revenue, may have been suspended. You may be a healthcare worker and you have to face this ‘monster’ daily. You may think your tomorrow is so uncertain. That is so true if you are looking at it from a human perspective. Everyone has had fear at some point in their life. You can read my story here. I want you to look at it from God’s perspective. God is in control, and his love for you has and will never change. It is your decision to just bask in his unending love.

In the book of 1 Corinthians 13, the bible really dissects what love is. I am not talking about lusting over someone’s physical looks and body. I am not talking about having a one-night stand and you do not even know this person’s name. I am not talking about the kind of selfish love where everyone only cares about the gain they will get or benefit from the other. I am talking about pure agape love. This love is a person. For God is love personified. We can boldly say GOD is LOVE.

  • The love of God is kind. This love is so considerate. It is so friendly and amazing. Unlike the way you and I who think only about ourselves, this love is one of a kind.
  • The love of God is patient. This love is not hasty to do you wrong. This love does right only and does so in truth only. This love is not pushy or irritating because it is not forced on you.
  • The love of God is good because he seeks out for your wellbeing. God always wants you to be the best that you can ever be.
  • The love of God does not keep records of wrong. He always blots out any wrongs you have and will ever do. He has imparted his righteousness upon you. It is not your righteousness, but his righteousness that has been imputed upon you. This is so that, you can leave your very good and best life. In 2 Corinthians 5:21; For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
  • The love of God sees pass your color/ race. God does not look at you based on your color, height or your financial background before he loves you. If God ever asked for a ransom, then only few people could afford to pay it. He didn’t give a color requirement or a height or a weight requirement before he loved you and I. He loved us regardless.
  • The love of God has no boundaries. His love is timeless. At all times, he will still love you. Although you may be stubborn, he still gives you ample time, just to accept his love. His free love is all you need to receive.
  • The love of God is gentle. I have never heard of any abuse from Gods love. In this world, you will hear how the rate of domestic violence increases daily. This is not the same with God. Abuse is never part of the plan. Insecurities have been wiped away completely in this wonderful love.
  • The Love of God is not proud or boastful. This love is the best thing that can happen to you. This love is birthed from humility. That is the reason why God sent his son to die for you and I.
  • The love of God is secure and certain. A lot of people are in relationships. They do not even know what they want. They are unsure if they will get married or not. They are just in a relationship so that everyone sees that they are in one. Although they may be unhappy in it, they choose to stay in it at all. The love of God is one that has a direction and purpose. His love is there for you to dominate in all facets of your life.
  • The love of God is the most perfect love. This love keeps no record of your wrong doings. Neither does it keep bringing your mistakes to your face grudgingly. Irrespective of what you didn’t do, he still loves you.

His love is part of His plan for your life and your wellbeing.

John 15:10

If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.

You are expected to love that’s all. You need to love yourself, love others, and love God. If you do not love God, you cannot forgive yourself thus, you cannot even love yourself, talk less of loving others. Love is all you need to be happy. If you experience love vertically; which is the love of and with God, you can easily share that love to and with others horizontally.

Do not forget that love is all you need to make a difference in the world like ours. It may be uncertain sometimes but never forget to love, and show love whenever you are given an opportunity to. Read my post about why you should be thankful regardless of what happens.

Remember that everything that you believe in will be tested. Any time you decide to do anything better, you will actually not like to because it will always seem like everyone else is stepping on your toes. If such arises, be silent for silence is power. You can read more here

Life is too short to leave a loveless life. Be happy, make merry, and depend on God, because his love will lead you.

john 3:16
God’s love to mankind

No greater had anyone than to lay down his life. Same day years ago, that is what Jesus did for you and I. take out tome to bask in his love today, and forever. Be rest assured you will never recover from his love because it is the best thing that can happen to you. His love gives you all the butterflies in your stomach. His love will make your world go round. God’s love will give you a new beginning. His love will make you feel like you are on top of the world, because you truly are. If you are still wondering if you are in the right direction, read my post here. There are still good people out there.

All you need to do is accept his love.

Let me know what you are doing during this quarantine time.

Until next time,

Its Bella.

Boiled African peanuts/ groundnuts recipe plus storytime.

0
boiled corn and peanuts
peanuts and corn on the cob.

I am a girl who is so proud of my roots. I come from the North West region of Cameroon, and peanuts, is a must have and must eat. As a matter of fact, this nut is enjoyed all year round as a snack. Truth be told I am addicted to this snack. Anyone who knows me, knows this. I need to go for therapy. During my therapy sessions, I know I will say something along these lines; ‘Hi, I am Bella, and I am addicted to Peanuts’ lol. I know I will never recover from this addiction and this is for real. It has been a long time coming. Peanuts go along side corn. It does not matter how, but I am so glad that corn and peanuts decided to marry each other. I do not know who is female, and who is male. Well, to make it easy, let’s just say that Mr. Corn and Mrs. Peanuts. Lol.

Before I jump into the recipe, let me tell you how this addiction all started. In one of my posts, I had said I lived with my grand mom during the early years of my life. I know you already know where this story is heading to right? Well, I was pampered by her, and it didn’t stop the fact that I would also get a whopping when necessary. I had this special bowl that was only meant for me. It was my snack bowl. When I say snack, I mean my night time and over night snack bowl. Hahahaha. Never heard about this right? I never respected eating hours, because I had my own eating hours. Although I would not like to eat breakfast, I may end up eating dinner, then wait for my evening snack which will be the almighty Mr. and Mrs. (you already know them right?).

During rainy season, which is the harvest season of the almighty fresh peanuts aka groundnuts, I would end up having boiled fresh peanuts aka groundnuts for dinner and ‘roasted’ corn which is actually roast corn or corn on the cob, then my fresh peanuts or groundnuts for snack. During the dry season, I can only enjoy the dried peanuts. Grandma will fry it (I mean patch it) and I will enjoy it with corn. The combo is called ‘gru-gru’, ‘krang-krang’ or fried corn and groundnuts. This was my best snack. I know you have been hearing me say that ‘snack’. Does it mean I ate only peanuts for snack? Growing up I had a lot of things to choose from by God’s grace. Although I didn’t come from a rich family, my family did the best to provide for me. In fact, they gave all they had for me.

This is the moment of truth. When I use the word ‘snack’, I actually mean going to bed with my fresh boiled peanuts in my bowl. If it is dry season, I will equally go to bed with my patch corn and groundnuts in my bowl. Hahahaha. Who does that right? Well, me. At night while ‘men’ sleep (who is my grandmother), I will be devouring my boiled peanuts, or fried Mr. Corn and Mrs. Peanuts combination. I will literally ‘sleep eat’ this thing. I could never sleep without this bowl with my favorite snack which happened to be in season. My grand mom tried to stop me, but failed. I guess some attitudes can not just go away like that. This was a routine for me. I mean to say that, I did this daily. And my bowl had better be filled to the brim. Whenever I woke up the next day, I will see some of the left overs on the bed. After all, I was the biggest rat in the building.

With that being said, let me show you how these green African peanuts is boiled. When I got to the USA, I realized that the peanuts here are well seasoned, with salt and garlic etc. added to the peanuts. It is actually over cooked. It is not so with this Cameroon style boiled peanuts.

Procedure:

  • Wash your one pound of peanuts until the water is clear.
  • Soak it in water for 2-3 days so that if becomes so fresh if you are using dried peanuts. Do not forget to change the water daily. Skip this step if you have green peanuts.
  • Boil in 1 cup of water for about 3 minutes.
  • Strain and drain.
  • Let cool and serve.

N.B:

You still want your peanuts crunchy and not all soggy.

Do not leave your peanuts in water because it will absorb water.

You can eat this snack with fresh sweet corn on the cub. If you decide to eat it with the corn on the cob, do not add butter to the corn on the cob.

Why silence is the most powerful tool ever.

2
power of being silence
silence is power

THE POWER OF SILENCE

In this blogpost, I explain why being quiet can be very helpful.

This world is a very busy and a very noisy one. From sunrise to sunset, one is dealing with noise. I am amazed sometimes at the amount of noise that passes via my ears every single day. This noise can either be constructive or destructive. I know that you may be wondering if there is constructive noise because noise is noise right? Well, you maybe be right, and I may be right too. Constructive noise depends on who is listening to the sound produced at the time they are listening to that sound. Noise is just a sound, and this sound can be pleasurable or it may not be, depending on who is listening. Note that, sound or noise is not limited to music. It can be words, or any other form of communication. It can be verbal or nonverbal. For example, when you just fall in love, you will eagerly tell your partner how much you love them, and how they are the only ‘lily amongst your thorns’, the only ‘sugar in your tea’, and the only ‘ketchup in your fries’, and so on, and so forth. At this moment, your partner is the first person you want to see in the morning, and the last person you want to see before going to bed. Then months later, when both of you are fighting or have broken up, you will not want to even hear his or her name, or have anything to do with them. In fact, you would not even want to see their shadow in your dreams. Anything they want to say, will only bring a lot of bitterness, anger and build up of malice. Even if they ever dream of talking to you, what ever they want to say, is ‘jazz’ which means noise. So you see…?

This life is filled with ups and downs. Most often, you get hurt by the people you care about. I have noticed that, people can say the meanest things ever. You will be shocked that, the person or the people who do or say these crazy things, are always the people you least expect. They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. In this matter, I do not even know if you will be able to drink the lemonade because you may have lost your appetite from how cruel people can be.

If you are reading this blogpost, I believe that you are a person with a VISION. A person with a vision is someone with a focus. If you have a vision, then you have a focus, and you are on an amazing journey to fulfilling your destiny. Wanting to fulfill your destiny, is the best thing that can happen to you because when you do, then you have started living your life. I have had a lot of fear diving into what I want to do in life. I know you may have fear too and that is normal, but do not let it have a hold of you. You can read my story HERE.

As individuals journeying in this world, attacks and all kinds of things will come your way, just to make you act otherwise. One of the ways that people can make you ‘loose’ it, is how they treat you either by their actions or by their words. There will always be a forum or an avenue for someone to say something out of place. When such moments come, be silent and do not offer any words contrary to what you believe in, or contrary to who you are and what you are about. This does not cancel the fact that, Words have power. You can read my blogpost on that HERE.

Silence is able to yield more power than just ranting mare words. Silence can be developed or cultivated.

When to maintain silence:

  • Maintain silence in your relationships during a misunderstanding.
  • You can also maintain silence during your business negotiations.
  • Silence in the heat of an unpleasant situation.
  • You can decide to stay silent in life by being more of a listener than a talker. When I say there is power in being silence, I mean it.

Three reasons to be silent:

Below are three good reasons you should learn to stay silent or quite amidst the noise in the world or what ever environment you find yourself.

  • It is a polite thing to do.
  • It is power and it commands respect.
  • It helps you know what to say and make better decisions.

Often times, I am tempted to explain myself and try to prove a point. With being silent, I have realized that, it is not worth it at all. Sometimes, over explaining will not change what people think about you. So be you, and do your best to be the best version on yourself.

Enjoy this video I did for you.

Until next time,

Happy Mother’s Day to you Mommy Love

Mom is gold
Mom is gold

A girl with three beautiful mothers. This is my Story.

I am the only girl in the world with three moms. I know that may sound weird. I do not want you to start thinking if these moms had donated part of their eggs, or was I put in an incubator? Or how was I formed or how did it happen? These moms are not lesbians either, so marriage is out of the way. My moms are so caring and loving. Imagine how spoiled I may have been growing up. Being the only child, I have been receiving all the love and attention from them for more than twenty years, and counting. Before I dive into the real talk why I have three moms, let me tell you their names. I put their names from the oldest to the youngest. These women are Mama, Mommy K, and Mommy Jane and they happen to be my grand ma, my biological mom, and my aunty who is my mom’s younger sister respectively.

I have always known that, if it were left to my grand ma, and my Mommy Jane, they would have birthed me themselves. However, no one gets to choose who would birth them, but God alone does. These women are the reason I am who I am today. I have received all kinds of prayers from them, and I can boldly tell you that, I always know how the wordings of their prayer will go even before they say an amen. Not to talk about the pieces of advice. These strong black women can advise me for Africa. I know that they would give me all the pieces of advice, and the pieces of advice put together would over flow if I had to put in a barrel. Mommy k always end up saying ‘… Bebe Nwe, please do not join bad friends ok’? Or mommy Jane will start by saying ‘you know that I am not with you, and none of us is with you, so you have to be responsible for your actions my baby”. Or my grand mom will start telling me stories from my childhood, and who I was, or who I have to be. She would remind me of how we went farming together. Although we didn’t have everything in the world, we loved each other.

I didn’t want to write any blog post, however, I have come to realize that, every day is Mother’s Day, so nothing can stop me from wishing them a happy Mother’s Day daily, weekly or monthly, or whenever I have an opportunity to.

Before I continue, here are the women I am talking about.

my Grand mom
My grand mother aka mama

 

my mother is gold
My Biological Mom aka Mommy K

 

My Aunty aka Mommy Jane
My Aunt aka Mommy Jane

Finally, if you are reading this blogpost and you are a mom to anyone, biologically, spiritually, or you adopted someone’s kid, or you are just a mother figure to anyone irrespective of your age, happy Mother’s Day to you.

Sometimes I think that, mothers are not celebrated enough. Mothers are gold, and mothers are one in a million.

If you are reading this, and you are a mother, know that you are strong, tough, and you are amazing.

You may not be appreciated the way you should, but know that you rock. I know that as a mom, you bare on you the marks of motherhood, and you may not want to have them, but know that you are beautiful the way you are. You are selfless, and you loving.

As a mom, you are not perfect, and that is okay, because in your imperfection, you want your kids to be better, and you selfless even in your imperfection.

To me, no greater love had anyone, than to lay down his or her life. A a mother, you have done this from the very first day that you conceived me. No one may understand the pain, the sacrifices but in all of this, you brought out beauty in me because I am your kid, and you keep doing that daily.

As a mom, you are often misunderstood, and misjudged. Sometimes I expect more. How can you give more when you have given the most treasured possession you have which is your life?

I pray for you mom, that the Lord should increase and bless you, and give you all the good things. Above all, may the Lord give you a good long life, to enjoy the fruit of your labor.

If you read this post in its entirety, it is post Mother’s Day. I had done a video on my YouTube channel and dedicated it to them. Link below

You are a queen, so carry yourself as one

You are a QUEEN

Some Queens are Born, others are made. What makes the difference, is how you carry yourself ~ CHRIST BELLA

I have realized that a lot of women in one way or the other try to settle for less when they can actually be Queens that they are.

I am here to let you know that you should not settle for less no matter what comes your way. Always walk with your head up, and walk with confidence, and so much audaciousness, because you are a Queen, in your own kingdom.

Who is a Queen?

The dictionary defines a Queen as the female ruler of an independent state, especially one who inherits the position by right of birth. What made me really love this definition is that it said you are a Queen by birth. It means it is your right, and that is who you are naturally, and there is nothing you can do to change that. Hah!!.

Wait a minute. Did you just hear what I said? My sister, I just said it is your birthright. It is your right to be treated like a Queen that you are. Do not settle for anything lesser than that. Do not be beggarly, or have any self-pity on yourself thinking you are not worthy, or deserving. You are a Queen, so carry yourself accordingly, and everything else will follow suit.

How can you become a Queen?

You can be a Queen, by simply accepting that you are a Queen. It is just that simple, and easy. Furthermore, you do not have to end at believing that you are one. You have to actually walk like one, think like one, and you have to also be conscious of the fact that you are one.

How can you carry yourself as a Queen?

  • Dress like a queen. The clothes and the outfit you have do not necessarily need to be super expensive, but you need to keep them neat, and presentable.
  • You have to eat like a Queen. What you eat has to be healthy, and you have to have good comportment when you are eating i.e. not eating and talking with food in your mouth, and also by allowing your food to spill all over the floor when you are a lady.
  • Walk like a Queen. You do not have to pull your feet on the floor when you are walking. Always pick up your feet when walking.
  • Finally, and most importantly, treat people with so much respect, love, and tenderness.

Until next time, do not forget who you are.

It’s Moi,

How soap absolutely annihilates the coronavirus (COVID-19)

0

The number of people affected with the COVID-19 has just skyrocketed in the US and all over the world, with more than 10,000 deaths and a panic mode which has just been activated. A lot of people have lost their loved ones, and have lost their jobs as well. This pandemic is ravishing a lot of crazy things.

It is very important to know that a hand sanitizer does not replace hand washing.

I understand that almost everyone is talking about, or wants hand sanitizers to help with the COVID-19. Proper hand hygiene is very essential at this time. The kind of hand hygiene that you need to practice is not the kind that you actually finish your hand washing in a split second. In order for you to be safe in this time where there is so much instability all over the world, you need to wash your hands, and you need to actually wash it more than ever before.

Hand sanitizers have been cleared from the shelves, and you probably only have your hand soap with you at home. Do not freight, only be of courage, because your hand soap will strengthen your heart.

Respiratory viruses are spread easily via our hands either via handshake, or just touching a surface, and then an uninfected person touches that same surface. If you happen to come in contact with the viral particles and start touching your face, or your body, and all whatnot, you have a greater chance of actually getting the virus, and it will eventually stick to the hands, and you end up getting the said respiratory virus which happens to be coronavirus aka COVID-19.

What is soap?        

According to Wikipedia, Soap is a salt of a fatty acid which is used in a variety of cleansing and lubricating products. In a domestic setting, soaps are usually used for washing, bathing. It is worth noting that, soaps are able to kill viruses, and coronavirus is not exempted. This is the fast, easy and most reliable way to actually get rid of COVID-19.

How does soap kill viruses?

To kill any germ or virus’ you need to:

  • Wet your hands
  • Put some of the soap in your hand and thoroughly distribute it all over not forgetting your fingernails, and in between your fingers.
  • Rinse your hands thoroughly. It usually takes a little time for the soap to kill any virus which is typically about 20 seconds or more. Some people say you should sing the ‘happy birthday’ song when washing your hand.
  • Finally, wipe your hands with a paper towel, then use the paper towel, to turn the tap off.

The WHO and the CDC have several basic measures to help stop the wild spread of COVID-19:

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, objects.
  • Stay at home when you feel sick.
  • Contact a health worker if you have any symptoms of fever and or dry cough.
  • DON’T touch your face.
  • DON’T travel if you have a fever and cough.
  • DON’T wear a mask if you are not sick.

COVID-19 is real, and do your best to maintain good hand hygiene. Do your best to stay safe and clean out there, and most importantly, do not forget to pray for God’s protection upon your life, and the life of your loved ones.

Until next time,
