Hello and welcome to my blog! AfrikanRising is a place where I (Eyek) discuss (complete) health, beauty, and social justice. As a twentysomething year old Nigerian, I'm sharing my stories, from my struggles with self acceptance, to my favorite skincare products.

 I created this blog because I want you to feel something, whether that's joy, sadness or a desire to self-reflect. I'm learning and growing everyday and I want you to learn and grow with me. Join me on this journey and watch this African rise.

Pick Of The Week

Pick Of The Week

Hey guys! I couldn't choose just one thing this past week because so many things made me happy this week! I'm going to tell you guys about my favorite song(s), snack, and beauty product.


Mr. Eazi ft Efya- Skin Tight

The weird thing about me is that for the most part, I'm about 5 months late to every song, and although I thought I stayed up to date on afrobeats, I was wrong.

Mr. Eazi is a well known Ghanian artist who I'm 10 years late to finding out about. I have had this song on repeat for the past few days. He's a cutie on the low (on the high) too so, ya know I had to get you guys hip!



Snow Peas!

This has been my favorite snack over the past few weeks. Snow peas have a multitude of benefits, most notably, fiber and Vitamin C. If you are having issues with bowel movements or getting in your greens, give these a try!.



Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (Waterproof)

I love this mascara because it gives my lashes the dramatic look that I love. I'm not really a fake lashes type of person so I try to look for mascaras that will make my eyes pop without having to do the most. Additionally, this mascara can be found at your local drugstore, Target, or Walmart. If you are not in the U.S, Amazon.com and Drugstore.com are very reliable.
