I remember how a lot of people frowned upon online dating in my teenage years. In those days, you would’ve been called a desperado for using dating apps. But what do you really know about dating as a teenager? I guess you’re just too young to understand… Even in this day and age, there are still a lot of people who frown upon online dating. If you’re on Tinder, people automatically assume you’re desperately looking to have a one night stand. If you’re on MatchMaker, you’re considered to be a hopeless romantic. So what do you call the people who have found love on social media? Isn’t sliding into the DMs a form of online dating? It Goes Down In The DM! I’m sure someone has slid into your DMs before or maybe you’re guilty of doing all the sliding. Either way, I know for a fact that you’ve thought about…

Pinch punch, it’s the first Monday of a brand new month! We’re back with a new episode. There’s been a lot happening this week. From the Libyan slave trade to the Grammy Nominations. Let’s see what everyone had to say about this… WHO’S IN THE BUILDING THIS WEEK? Whilst Jessica is still recovering from riding camels in Dubai, I’m somewhere eating Gouda cheese in The Netherlands and living my life like it’s golden. So you’ve only got one co-host to entertain you this week but Yvette did invite two guests to keep her company. Natalie was back in the building who isn’t a stranger to the podcast. Give her a follow on Twitter @NatThePhoenix. We also had Travis Jay come in who’s known to be a triple threat; he’s a comedian, a host and a radio personality. Make sure you give him a follow on Twitter @TravisJayent to find out…

The only thing that runs through your mind after a fresh break up is your ex bae (or in some cases bae). The reason I said bae is because some of us are or have been in traffic light relationships. You don’t know whether the red light is permanent or just holding up traffic for a while. The amber light might make you want to cross the road to make things work. Who knows, it might change back to a green light and this could be a temporary break up… But right now you’re hurting and feeling lovesick as literally everything around you is reminding you of your ex. From the T-shirt hanging in your wardrobe to your new phone case he bought you last week. How do you heal from this? In this blog, I’ll be touching on four ways that will help you get over your ex and heal from the…

When some people hear the word compromise, they literally jump into defense mood as if someone just threw a jab at them. I recently came across a few Instagram posts where some women were very much against compromising. They said that compromising is a no-no in a relationship as your partner should love you for who you are. How do you feel about this statement? Do you agree? So Why Do People HATE Compromising? I don’t actually think people have an issue with compromising. I think that compromising has been labelled as an issue depending on what’s being suggested to change or to happen. Let me paint the picture… A guy meets this very beautiful girl who wears make-up. Not too much make-up, but just enough foundation to cover the blemishes and a bit of mascara to make her eyes look alive. They end up dating for a while and things progress…

What’s the first thing you normally do after upsetting someone? Apologise? But what if your apology isn’t accepted; what do you do then? ‘Think before you speak’ is a very common quote that we all know but sometimes seem to forget. There can be times where the wrong words find their way in your mouth. Instead of thinking before you speak, you end up saying something offensive. You might not think you did any harm with what you said. But guess what, it can still be taken the wrong way which can lead to you hurting someone’s feelings. Is An Apology Enough? I’ve found myself in very crazy situation recently where I literally messed up. There’s no other way in putting this. I actually f*cked up… I said some stuff that wasn’t cool but didn’t think it would do any harm. What I said has cost me my best friend *sigh*. Should’ve known better…

There’s been a lot going on this week. From sexual harassments to the Dove advert. Let’s see what the ladies have to say about this… WHO’S IN THE BUILDING THIS WEEK? This week we had a new face in the building. We met a nice and fun lady at the AfroBeats In Conversation event back in October 2017. She’s what you call a triple threat; a blogger, hairdresser and make-up artist! We had the beautiful and bubbly Josephine in the building. Josephine is NOT afraid to speak her mind, I tell ya! You’ll be able to hear that on this week’s episode lol. Make sure you give her a follow on Instagram and Twitter @memojoandi. JUST THE TIP The new Dove advert has caused a bit of an uproar on social media. In the advert, you can see a Black woman changing into a White woman as she changes her top.…

From a shooting in Canada to social media going crazy about Kevin Hart’s love life. Let’s see what the On The Low ladies have to say about this… WHO’S IN THE BUILDING THIS WEEK?

It’s been a while since we had an episode of Cackling Women. We didn’t have a guest come through so it was just the three of us this week. Well, Mr Jack Daniels was present as Yvette doesn’t know how to stop getting a couple of cans in *rolls eyes*. From the minute we saw each other, we couldn’t stop laughing. This episode was full of banter! We all felt a few pounds lighter from all that laughing lol. Besides laughing, we balanced the episode out and also touched on some serious topics. JUST THE TIP The UK comedian Michael Dapaah is at the again! He went on the famous Fire In The Booth with his alter egos MC Quakez and Roadman Shaq to spit some bars. What do you think of it? Were you also in stitches? So this week we decided to discuss my blog ‘Is Snooping Around…

Have you ever felt the urge to snoop through your partner’s belongings? Let me paint the picture… You’re at your partner’s house and you come across a random box in their closet. The fact that you’re even going through their closet is another question of its own. Anyways, you see this box on the top shelf. Do you leave it where it is or do you go through their stuff? Well Mary Jane Paul in the series Being Mary Jane couldn’t resist but to look through the box she found in her partner’s closet. According to her, she just wants to know more about her bae Justin. Is that a justified reason to go through your partner’s belongings though? ‘He Went Through My Phone!’ A couple of years ago, I dated a very weird guy. I probably don’t sound nice using the word weird to describe this guy but there’s literally no other word that describes his actions the…

What do you do when the love of your life decides to move to a different country? You’ll most probably burst down in tears and maybe even consider going with him. I’ve been there and did both. In my blog ‘When Are You Getting Married, [Insert Your Name]?’ I briefly touched on long distance relationships and said that this would be a topic for another day. Well today is the day to dive into this topic. Can you see yourself being in a long distance relationship if your partner decides to move to a different country to chase their dream? In this blog I will be discussing three points you gotta have in place in order for your long distance relationship to work. A Little Background Story… When I was 18 years old, I fell head over heels for a guy. We were in a relationship and everything was going so well.…
