Nigerian design label Keem Harun unveils its Spring/Summer 2017 collection called “Feminine Fatale“. According to a rep for the label, this collection pays tribute to the independent woman and her ability to juggle different roles throughout life and still look confident and stylish. With Feminist Fatale, women have the ability to choose which roles define them, and accentuate strengths. The Creative Director Keem Harun-Adeleye tells BN Style that the collection is “an ode to these complexities and our ability to still unwind, let our hair down to party, laugh, have fun and enjoy life.” The Feminist Fatale Lookbook Credit Photography:…

But before we get…

DOES EVERY MAN OR WOMAN HAVE HIS OR HER PRE-ORDAINED AND PREDESTINED SOULMATE Is there a pre-ordained man for every woman and vice versa? Answers No. God leads you according to His spirit and the man gets someone that’s like-minded like Him. The man gets His Help meet “suitable for him” while he is loving God and doing his purpose. We are very quick to jump to Adam and Eve. Read carefully!!! God did and created things and left Adam to make choices; God didn’t impose anything….follow me closely. While God made Eve out of Adam to be His suitable help…

Women have been putting up with the hormonal side-effects of contraceptives like the pill for decades. It’s time for men to do their bit Deborah Orr An experimental male contraceptive jab has proved just as effective as the pill is for women. Trials were abandoned, however, because side-effects included depression, raised libido and acne. Which is weird, because the pill has similar side-effects – although sometimes it can cure acne. The pill’s other common side-effects include nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, anxiety, weight gain and, sometimes, decreased libido. However, suggesting that the pill isn’t an almost perfect form of birth control tends…

Grace was inconsolable. Her boyfriend of two years just cheated on her with his co-worker. It was like a dagger was driven hard into her tender heart, piercing her insides. The pain she felt in her heart later gave way to anger and then doubts about herself and then to paranoia. Even though Robert has been remorseful and begging for her forgiveness ever since, things never remained the same between them. Being cheated on is not a child’s play. No one wants to even imagine himself or herself in such a situation where there are betrayed like that. But life…

Because they’re confident to ask for what they want Middle-aged women are actually more satisfied with their sex lives, despite it being commonly known that the menopause can result in vaginal dryness and low libido. A new study from the University of Pittsburgh found that many women are adapting to changes in sexual function and, as a result, are experiencing better sex. They reported having higher levels of self-confidence, increased self-knowledge and better communication skills as they age, which is all helping make sexy time even better.

I personally don’t enjoy talking about this feminism topic, particularly with other females, because somehow, the conversation always ends up being unpleasant. Maybe it’s because I don’t fully understand the concept, or because my views aren’t exactly aligned with the “feminism” I see and hear about these days (I guess I’m still a bit traditional). Whenever I express how I feel about the issue, especially in the context of relationships/marriage, I’m somehow always wrong. I will often get attacked, sometimes even insulted, so I just prefer not to voice my opinion. I actually remember a time I got insulted and…
