So I’m creating the Afropolitan Chef Cookbook to share the techniques, flavors and spices of the world inspired by Africa.

Afropolitan Chef Cookbook- African Inspired Meals About the Book The Afropolitan Chef cookbook will have over 60 savory recipes in time for Thanksgiving 2014. The recipes are a fusion of meals I have learned over the years, influenced by West Africa, and includes something not usually shared in African fusion meals: A Calorie Count. Yes, delicious, exotic and still healthy! I have also done my best to include ingredients that you can get at any local grocery store. I have already written most of the recipes and shot the photos to go in the cookbook. In order to have foodies flipping through the pictures, salivating and yearning to satisfy their pallets in time for Thanksgiving; I need to raise $7,500 before summer’s end – Yetunde Taiwo, Afropolitan Chef

A Fashionably Sockless Giveaway

Have you ever wondered, like me, how the feet of guys in native African wear or contemporary dapper/hip getup who appear not to wear socks; survive all the sweat, stink and perspiration without socks?.  Well, it has been brought to my attention that they might  just  be wearing Mocsocs.  You’ve seen one? or want one? Read on.

According to the website:

Mocsocs are the finest quality “half socks” or “antislip socks” that are geared towards the refined gentleman or lady that chooses to wear fine quality loafers, drivers, moccasins, boat shoes, saddle shoes, and even in recent fashion, tennis shoes and oxfords without socks. Mocsocs are socks that cover just the front half of the gentleman’s (or lady’s) foot providing comfort and protection, in a fashionable way.  – Mocsocs

Mocsocs are the best no-show socks brand in the fashion market that place a big emphasis on comfort and style. Specially designed to address the issue of perspiration while considering a no-socks look, value, style and function, these premium half socks and anti-slip socks come in 80% polyester/20% spandex and 100% cotton alternatives. Mocsocs are already a hit with celebrities and fashion trendsetters.

It looks interesting but I guess it does the job, the sockless, stylish look while avoiding the stink 🙂 . They are doing a Spring Giveaway for the week so if you wanna jump on it and sample it, just like/follow their social media and share the graphic on their facebook page or repost on instagram or retweet on twitter the  Mocsocs giveaway graphic  and hashtag #MocSocsGiveaway for a chance to be entered to win free Mocsocs merchandise and probably along with it, a $25 gift card . All the best.

JOIN THE ‘#IAM’ MOVEMENT

Hullo Friends..

You gotta stay motivated, keep the year moving with much needed positivity that is why I totally and instantly resonated with this new campaign started by Lagos based Wiz Design Artist James Abinibi tagged the #iAm campaign. There is surely power in fortifying the mind and professing daily affirmations, albeit via visual tools such as these lovely eye-catching #iAm graphics.

The #iAm icon carries within it the African Spirit. The motifs are a representation of our diverse culture and the different elements represent creativity in the authentic African culture.
The #iAm Campaign is aimed at promoting a self motivating attitude among African youths . The average young African is faced with daily challenges enough to criple every aspiration and hopes they have. Yet, we are strong willed and despite all the odds we face we are still ready to put in our best everytime we have an opportunity to. This kind of spirit is what the campaign aims to encourage; our environment does not define us, we can show the world who we really are through our lifestyle, culture and beliefs.
We believe, as Africans – whether male or female, we have the #iAm DNA in our system which enables us to achieve things beyond our presumed capabilities. We are able to create and achieve the moment we set our minds to it. Everyone of us should confidently proclaim this in any way we can; “I am Talent, Culture, Strength, Style, Hope, Love, Awesome… I am everything positive, I am everything I choose to be!”
The #iAm icon carries within it, the African Spirit. The motifs are a representation of our diverse culture and the different elements represent creativity in the authentic African culture.
“I define myself by my thoughts and words. I achieve because I put my mind to it, I am limitless! My Yesterday has nothing on my Tomorrow, I am the Future. Society doesn’t define me, Culture can never hold me back. I am whatever I put my mind to.”
