Your Mind, Your Body, Your Soul (Motivation for Monday)

The mind, the body and soul are 3 interlinked parts. One does not function without the other. When all 3 are cared for, we live a more fulfilling life and are more happier. See, out of your mind is where everything starts – whether good or bad. And your body is the carrier of all things that comes from your mind and then your soul is the receiver of what your mind and body say.

Today, on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the importance of caring for the mind, the body and the soul. Let’s check it out……….

Going to the prom is a highlight of every teenager’s life and it is a time to look your absolute best.

You Can Do This (Motivation for Monday)

In the past couple of weeks, I received many messages than I would normally get. When I read through all these messages and met up with some of the amazing people who wrote to me, I can conclude that a lot of people want more for their lives, want to grow, want to contribute to the society and economy at large, people want to use their gifts to help others and in turn fulfill their own purpose. Today’s blog will encourage someone who is on the cross roads of whether or not to go ahead and start working on the huge burden and desires of their hearts.

 

5 FASHION JOBS YOU CAN DO ON FREELANCE BASIS

I have always loved Fashion and will always do. I am the kind of girl who cares about what I throw on my back because I love me enough to dress well for me, we only live once and life is too short to dress shabbily. However, as much as I love fashion, I have never thought of being a Fashion Designer. I don’t know if this would change, but for now, it is what it is. Even though I have never thought of being a Fashion Designer, I have enjoyed working within the Fashion Industry doing different things and today, I want to share some Fashion jobs you can do to get paid with you.  All of the ones mentioned below can be done on Freelance basis.

 

How to Know If You Are Fulfilling Purpose (Motivation for Monday)

Nearly every week, I change the DP on my WhatsApp with snap shot of feedback(s) I get from different people who have come in contact with my work. A lot of times, it is some sort of testimonial or feedback saying, “how much what I do has helped them” or “how my book has helped them” or “how a course I created has helped them” or “how a post I wrote on Facebook or somewhere else has helped them” etc.  I personally do this to remind myself of how far I have come on my journey and how much impact I make daily with what I do but most importantly as a reminder to be thankful to God for giving me the gifts I use to make such an impact.

 

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on “How to Know If You Fulfilling Your Purpose”……….

 

DIY PEDICURE IN 5 MINUTES

I have been doing my pedicure for a long time now. I would say it became one of my DIY (do it yourself) beauty routines when I moved to Europe. Not only does getting my pedicure done myself save me time, it has saves me tonnes of money. Let’s face it, a round of pedicure costs anywhere between 40 to 60 euros, so if you get pedicure once a month, you would have spent a total of 480 /  720  euros a year. That in my humble opinion is a lot of money especially if you are saving for a specific need or project or simply, if you are on a budget.

Well, you don’t have to worry about paying that much anymore. Today, I have a step by step guide on how you can do your own pedicure by yourself at home. Let’s have a look………

 

The Power of Vision Boards (Motivation for Monday)

I had 2 major breakthroughs last week. Amazingly, one news came on Wednesday and the other came on Thursday. It was a back to back victory I must say. Until about 5 years ago there about, I didn’t really understand how scriptural, effective and powerful vision boards are. However since I have learnt more about vision boards, I now use them all the time. Now, once I achieve everything on one vision board, I make another. Today on motivation Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the power of vision boards and how to make them work for you………

 

Fixed Goal with Flexible Path (Motivation for Monday)

A couple of months ago, I shared a blog titled FOCUS where I encouraged you to Follow One Course Until Successful. I am not changing my mind today about the tips I shared in that post but I am here to tell you today that while it is important to follow one course until successful (FOCUS), it is also important to recognise that we must have a VERY OPEN mind for us to be able to succeed in all areas of our life. Let’s check out today’s motivation for Monday

Maxi_skirt

Every Monday on this blog, I write to encourage and inspire you to be who you were called to be and I do that by sharing my own story repeatedly and truthfully highlighting why I started the things I do now, what I have achieved, where I am now and where I truly want to go. Today is not different because I will be sharing to encourage you. As I finished servicing my Facebook page last Saturday, Facebook fed me with this powerful post I felt truly connected with and I thought to share it with you. So, today’s motivation is half mine and half someone else’s. I will be sure to credit the original writer – Temi Koleowo…..

 

HOW TO TRANSITION TO AUTUMN WITH SUMMER WARDROBE

 

I still have some amazing Summer pieces I would love to share with you with some incredible styling TIPS as always but I wanted to start preparing for the new season as the weather continues to change.

Are you in London, please share your thoughts about the London weather now in the comments below.  For now, let’s talk about this look and some styling TIPS, shall we?

 

How to Take Measurements & Determine Your Body Type

One of the attendees of my previous Masterclasses told me one of the reasons she couldn’t wear nice clothes is because she doesn’t understand or know her body. I told her she recognises the problem already and then we took up the challenge from there and together we were able to solve all her problems.

For any women to dress well, she has to understand the body she is in. She has to understand her silhouette, body type and proportions and then go ahead to start buying clothes that works.

 

2 WAYS TO STYLE A COLOUR-BLOCK TUNIC

 

Jeans is a down time wear for most people but for me, tunics and dresses are my go to down time wear. They are easy to throw on and go. You can run errands with them, go shopping with them, wear them on a very warm Summer day, wear them on a summer night with heels and if you have mastered the art of maximising, you can wear them in the Winter with tall boots and turtle neck layered with a coat.

 

YOUR JOURNEY MAY SEEM EASY NOW (Motivation for Monday)

Remember I wrote a blog called Trust Your Journey a while ago. In that blog, I shared the importance of embracing your own life’s journey in totality, authentically and that come what may, to never give up.

Can I be totally honest with you? See, every motivation blog I have ever written was influenced by a life’s experience. I like to write from real life experiences because we learn from experience and then people can relate to those things better because they are real.  Today, I am writing the blog as always from real life experience and this one is called, “Your Journey May Seem Easy Now”

 

YOU ARE A BRAND TOO (Motivation for Monday)

As a Writer and Fashion Aficionado who also happens to inspire, encourage and motivate other people to become who they truly want to be irrespective of their circumstance, sex and age, I also spend a lot of time researching and  watching great contents that can help me be better at what I do. So, last week, I saw this video where Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful of British Vogue sat down to interview Oprah Winfrey. In that interview, I learnt a few pointers and I will be sharing some of that with you today on Motivation for Monday.

 

HOW TO STYLE THE CUT-OUT BLOUSE

 

When it comes to my personal style, I am not a cleavage revealing kind of girl. However, I love to show off my beautiful brown shoulders and my neckline. And because I also love me some cut out blouses, I decided to share another one in look book with you today.

More so, I recently featured a cut out blouse in one of the styling I did recently and a few people “raised eyebrows”. Some said, they couldn’t wear it because it was too open (revealing) for them. So, in today’s post, I will be sharing how to wear the cut out blouse with you….

 

SILENT EVERYTHING & LISTEN TO YOU (Motivation for Monday)

It is not so obvious but the same letters that spell the word silent actually spells the word listen. Let me list both words below and what they mean:

SILENT: not speaking. Silence can also mean the lack of audible sound, or the presence of sounds of very low intensity. The word silence can also refer analogously to any absence of communication or hearing, including in media other than speech and music

LISTEN: to make an effort to hear something; be alert and ready to hear something

 

Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “silent everything and listen to you”

Audacity to Go After Your Dreams (Motivation for Monday)

How will it make you feel if you take a bold step and go after the life you want? How would it make you feel if after thinking about something, you just don’t stop there but go ahead and make that thing happen for yourself? How excited would it be for you if right before your very eyes, what you have always dreamed about comes to pass? For example, pass that exam, launch that business, move to another city, ask that girl or boy out or whatever it is it you want? How would that make you feel?

Today on Motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on what I call, “Audacity to Go After Your Dreams”
