Do you think that you deserve the best in a relationship? You’re probably thinking ‘Duh, why is CynTea asking such a stupid question?’ Well, there’s always a good reason why I ask these questions. And now that you’ve answered ‘YES’ to this question, I’ve got another one for you:  ‘Have you ever been in a relationship where you keep going through the same ups and downs over and over again?’ Hold that thought and picture this… You’re in a relationship. You and bae are really enjoying each other in all the ways you can think of. Heck, it feels like you guys are back in the honeymoon stage of the relationship. Nothing can go wrong at this point, right? But as soon as things are going very well, one particular thing keeps happening that just ruins the vibe between you guys. It’s like one day you’re really good and on another…

How low are you talking when you say ‘let’s keep it on a low’? If you’re hooked on watching the drama series Being Mary Jane like me, you would know that Mary Jane Paul has come out of limbo and is now in a secret relationship with Justin. He made it very clear from the start to keep things on the low for while. MJP has no idea how long this will last for but all she knows is that she can’t say a thing to anyone about the relationship. Not even her best friend! Can you do that? Actually let me rephrase this, are you happy to keep your relationship a secret for as long as it lasts for?  Is There Another Girl In The Picture? I had my first relationship when I was 16 and still remember how my boyfriend (at that time) asked me to be his girl. I remember how…

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who makes the best Jollof rice of them all? Is it the Ghanaians, Nigerians or maybe even the pioneers of Jollof, the Senegalese? As a proud Nigerian, it’s only right to say that Nigerians make the best Jollof. But does the answer really matter? I don’t know about you but I’d rather just find out where I can eat some good Jollof than get involved with the Jollof wars. So let’s put the Jollof beef aside so I can tell you where you can eat the baddest, sweetest and most succulent Jollof in London. For those who don’t have a clue what Jollof rice is, it’s a very popular dish in West Africa which consists of rice cooked in tomatoes, onions and mixture of spices to give it a delicious, sweet and smoky taste. I’ve eaten Jollof rice in many restaurants in London, from the…

Have you ever met someone who felt like the one but for some reason things didn’t work out between you guys? You probably started asking yourself questions like: ‘Why is this happening to me?’ Girl, I’ve been there and it wasn’t nice at all… Lots of tears were shed and of course, hearts were broken… But I always wondered… If you’re convinced that he’s your Mr. Right, don’t you think that your situation would’ve allowed you guys to be together? And when you say Mr. Right, are you just referring to his personality or to him as a whole and everything around him? A lot of women are very quick to say ‘He’s the one!’ But is he really though? It Takes TWO To TANGO! There are a lot of Perfect Guy, Wrong Time scenarios. From your bae moving to a different country to your bae having a child with someone else. Heck, he…

Do you feel like Instagram has been blocking your blessings with this new algorithm? Girl, you’re not the only one! It was a lot easier to get your posts out there a couple of years ago compared to today. Now, if your post isn’t considered as interesting or popular, hardly anyone sees it! Social media outlets are trying to monetise their platforms, so they want more people to pay to boost their posts. It’s just business, I suppose… But we don’t give a flying duck about that. All we want is for people to see our posts. Is that too much to ask for? So how can you outsmart this new insta algorithm, I hear you say? Girl, don’t worry. I’ve got your back. Let’s dive straight into it. Engagement is KING! You gotta have high engagement! Instagram loves it when people engage with your content via comments and saved posts.…

Have you been struggling to find a good pair of mink eyelashes? Well, look no further! I had the opportunity to model a pair of these beautiful eyelashes from Kikè by Delancey. And what can I say… I really loved the look of it! What’s so nice about the eyelashes is the fact that you don’t need to wear tons of make up to get that nice voluminous effect. Bare minimum make up is more than enough to make your eyes pop.  I’ve also applied them on a highlighted and contoured face on a night out and these eyelashes were literally the icing on the cake!  So it’s safe to say that these eyelashes are perfect for day and night looks! Kikè by Delancey has a range of eyelashes available that are all named after the African queens Nefertiti, Makeda, Amina and Cleopatra. The pair I’m wearing in the picture above are…

Who wants to be in a happy and healthy relationship? I’m sure you’ve always wanted to be in one. Even if you’re a baby girl or baby boy enjoying your single life and not in a rush to settle down, this thought must have crossed your mind before. Especially after seeing how some couples treat each other in public, on social media and maybe even in your household. Some of you have fallen in love with the way some couples interact with each other and say: “What a lovely couple, they look so happy. I want something like that.” I can see why you would want something like that. I mean, who wouldn’t wanna be in a happy, healthy relationship? It sounds like a silly question but trust me when I say it’s not. And I’ll tell you why after asking you this question: Are you happy as a single person? Are You Happy…

There are loads of pictures of couples on Instagram and Twitter with the caption ‘#RelationshipGoals’. When you see these pictures, you start thinking about your love life and often get lost in your thoughts. You end up asking yourself: ‘Why am I single?’ Being A Single Pringle For 4 Years It’s been nearly four years since my last serious relationship. In the past couple of years, I’ve been dating but nothing has developed into a relationship. ‘You’re single CynTea, you should go on dates and mingle!’ Yes, I agree dating can be fun. But after some time had gone by, most of us would like to take things to the next level with our potential bae. That’s when things can get tricky as you end up finding out that the guy you’re dating isn’t looking to commit. You’re clearly not on the same page so now you’ve got to start from square one again *sigh*… ‘You’re NOT A Failure!’…
