5 WAYS TO STYLE THE BOX BRAIDS

As someone who is transitioning from relaxed (chemical treated hair) to natural hair (kinky hair), protective styling like box braids is what I wear mostly. Box braids are made from kanekalon hair extensions and they can be made long, short and in between; they can also be braided thin, thick and in between….

 

INSIDE THE COOKIE JAR (Motivation for Monday)

If you are a constant to the motivation for Monday on Moj In Touch, you may have read the one I called, “Don’t Blame the Coach“. If you missed it, please check it out, you would learn the importance of taking responsibility for your life and more……..Today, I am taking you on a slightly different journey that I like to call “Inside the cookie jar”! When I got to the University, university of Ibadan to be precise. University if Ibadan (UI) is Nigerian’s premier university and I am privilege to have attended such a tertiary institution. So, when I was in the university, I ate so much cookies. The ones I loved a lot were Maryland cookies. I loved them so much, I made up my mind that when I grew up and started working and have my own money and home (goals), I would have a massive cookie jar where I would store my Maryland cookies and eat which ever amount I wanted when I wanted them. Unfortunately, before I finished uni, I stopped liking Maryland cookies, I stopped eating them all together…..Like, I said earlier on, today, I would like to encourage you in what I call, “Inside the Cookie Jar”

 

NATURAL HAIR HACKS (Get Soft, Shiny & Silky Hair)

Hair they say is the crowing glory of the woman. Yep, I totally agree because we all love to make our hair and look fabulous. However, when it comes to natural hair, the information out there is so much and can be overwhelming if I may add. In my previous Hair blog I called “What You Need to Know Before You Go Natural“, I said, your natural hair is like a baby, how I raise mine may not necessarily be how you raise yours; the most important thing is to embrace your hair journey and do what works for you”.

So today, I have some natural hair hacks for you. It is like an update of my own hair journey, products I have been using to get soft and manageable hair, combs I now use and the new hair dryer for natural hair my hairdresser bought for me…

 

5 TIMES I MADE “CHEAP MAXI” LOOK A MILLION DOLLARS

 

If you call me the queen of looking elegant, you wouldn’t be too far from spilling out my “character in style” and that was WHY I shared the blog on HOW to look elegant so we all can “SLAY” like queens. There is just something about dresses that make every woman look so polished and well put together. However, if you want to take elegance to the next level, maxi dresses is the way to go. Whether you are going to the red carpet or you are a wedding guest, maxi dresses make you look so fine. Let’s check out some maxi dresses I made look a million dollars……

 

THIS TIME LAST YEAR (Motivation for Monday)

I am writing as I travel on the train this morning and I couldn’t help but to reflect on exactly what I was doing this time last year. This time last year, I was on a flight to England and to keep me busy, I was writing the second draft of my first book, Use What You Have. Use What You Have is a book I wrote on HOW to discover your gifts (purpose), how to own them, embrace them and HOW to fulfill your purpose in life by using your GIFTS.

Although I go to England often, on that particular occasion, I went to England to be with one of my best friends who was having her first baby. In the next few days, I will be back to be with the same friend to join her in the celebration of the birthday of this child that was born this time last year……

 

 

SHIRT DRESS PAIRINGS (3 WAYS TO STYLE A SHIRT DRESS ) ::: Maximise Your Closet #1

I look for different ways to improve myself, what I do and maximise the skills that I already have so I can serve you, my dear audience better. And because of that desire and optimism, I am back to doing look books, pairings and styling videos.

When I first started my YouTube channel, this was what I set out to do and along the line, I started doing other things. Although I will be doing every other thing I do before, I will be more than very happy to bring you more styling videos to help you “maximise your closet”.

 

MY EXERCISE & FITNESS ROUTINE (“How I Stay Thin”) + WHY EVERYONE MUST EXERCISE

I have always known that to take care of others effectively, I have to take care of myself first, this is my own personal philosophy. But sincerely, nobody can give what they don’t have anyways. In caring for me, I focus on taking care of my body, soul and spirit. And for that reason, one of the ways I take care of myself is that I take care of my physical by exercising to stay strong, fit and energetic and NOT necessarily to stay thin……this is a bonus we get when we exercise.

 

As requested by you, here is my exercise and fitness routine video. Like I said in this week’s motivation, “Eat That Frog” and also in this video, no matter how thin you are, we all need some form of exercise…….
