I know you have heard the saying, one size fits all. While this is not applicable to everything in life, it applies to turtleneck as a style piece. There is absolutely nothing you can’t wear a turtle neck with. You can pair it for layering with a dress, your can wear it with a…
If you have ever wondered what the name of this blog – Moj In Touch means, here you go…..It simply means MOJ from my name and IN TOUCH from the situation I found myself.
So, IN TOUCH in my world simply means to be IN TOUCH with who you really are irrespective of your circumstance or status (single, married, mum, dad, unemployed, redundant or broke etc). Being in touch also means, even if your circumstance or status changes, your life goals, vision, aspirations and desires don’t have to change.
Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage on what I call, “The More You Do Anything”….
One of the first look books I shared on this blog was a shift dress. Amazingly I still have the Victoria Beckham shift dress in my wardrobe and I can’t wait to wear it again real soon. Today, I will be sharing with you tips and tricks on wearing the shift dress and the difference between the shift and the sheath dress.
If you don’t know before now, I love shoes. Now you know 🙂 I am a shoe lover. I have always been. I know my mum would always say to my Sister and I that we are tall already, so we don’t need high heels. I do not only love shoes, I love high heels…..
And what is not to love about shoes – high heels especially. They make you stand tall, walk elegantly and complete your look, even without a purse / bag. The magic in wearing high heels is to ENSURE you choose a heel height that is comfortable for you and ensure they fit well. Today, I will be reviewing the Christian Louboutin Pigalle and Cornielle. This is a requested blog.
If is possible for someone to look at me and tell me the things I want to hear even when I know they are not telling the truth. It is possible for me to allow anyone to lie to me because I just want a feel good factor or a pick me up. It is also possible for me to know the truth and keep waving it away because I can’t be true to myself, just for not being true to myself. I like to put it this way, anyone can lie to you BUT If you lie to yourself, you are your own greatest enemy…..
Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Be True to You”
Black is not a colour many wear during the warmer months or Summer. Let’s face it, after wearing so much black during the Winter to keep warm, many of us tend to gravitate towards colours – bright, bold and beautiful in the Summer. However, there are exceptions to wearing black in the Summer. With a very well detailed blouse like this, bring on black for Summer….
I shared a little clip of this review on my Instagram page 2 days ago and I am truly honoured about your kind comments and feedback on how well the video was made. Thank you also for your congratulatory messages on our wedding anniversary. Today 26/06, my husband and I celebrate our 15th year wedding anniversary. We are grateful indeed.
It is true that after you’ve have been with someone for a while, you start to think and behave like them. I can say it is true because Efe and I now have so many things in common like – we are both home buddies .i.e. we do not like to go out a lot, we are truly passionate about giving (I learnt this from my Parents and husband), we love the same smell and fragrances and so many other things, except FOOD. He loves food, I don’t….. 🙂
Well, all that by the way, let’s check out the review of this gorgeous fragrance – Giorgio Armani SÌ Passione. I choose this one as my fragrance for this year’s anniversary and YES, he would be wearing it with me too….
I try very much to use practical approaches when I create this motivation blogs. I try to share my own story as much as I can, not to brag but to inspire you to be YOU and do you. I also share from other people’s experience if I won’t violate their privacy in any way…..
Today’s motivation is no different because I am going to be using a real life instance and I call this one from the eyes of a child.
When I went to Lagos, I was very strategic in the types of pieces I brought with me. I wanted pieces that I could wear stylishly and are practical for the heat as it is always very hot in Nigeria….
This pants / trouser was one of the pieces I brought with me and I wore it twice during my stay. One time to a meeting on a project we were working on with open toe sandals and the other time, to run errands. Today, I am styling this pants for work….
When I shared my graduation pictures on the blog, I mentioned that I was going do the full review of the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Speedy 35 because this was the bag I wore on the day. However, I changed my mind for some reason. So, I was left with no choice when one one of you beautiful’s sent me a request to do so via Instagram. Voila, here we are…….
Every Monday for the past 4 years, I have come up with contents that would motivate, inspire, empower and encourage you to be who you want to be irrespective of the circumstances you may be faced with or surrounded by or issues of life that may be giving you that limiting mindset to still go out there and do what you have to do to be who you truly want to be. I come out here and say, “YOU CAN DO IT”. I turned myself to your “Cheerleader of dreams” while working on being who I was called to be too.
However, in the past couple of weeks, I have been very worried because we have had instances of suicide yet again. Not that suicide is good for anyone but one that was truly shocking to us all was that of the owner of the fashion brand, Kate Spade. Ms Spade was said to have committed suicide at age 55. The question is, what could have caused this?
One of the style philosophies I live by is, “it is not how much you pay for an item BUT how well you wear the item”. Today’s look befits that philosophy…..
This dress is the “best thing since slice bread”….. I love the dress and I have worn it 3 times already since it was delivered to my door. Let’s check it out + some styling TIPS.
I know we all have those days when all we want to do is NOTHING, even though we have so much to do. Sometimes, this feeling goes on for a day or two. After a day or two, we still don’t feel like doing anything. Meanwhile, there is lots to do. I totally get it. I understand. This kind of feelings happen a lot of times when we have put in all we think we can BUT can’t seem to see any results, green light or breakthroughs……
Is it true that as we get older, we loose height? Well, whether we loose height as we get older or not, with the perfect length maxi, height is possible, even for the shortest / most petite of us all. Today, I have this perfect maxi for your style inspiration and some styling TIPS.
I attended the Excel Women conference in London about 8days ago and sitting down in that conference, I couldn’t help but think about the price I paid to attend that conference. Not necessarily the monetary aspect of things but going out of my way to actually attend the conference. We had a family holiday planned so I went to England first for the conference and then back to Ireland and then back again on the road again with the family. It was a lot to deal with but hey, I did it. #Notcomplainingjustsaying.
As I sat down there at the conference amongst about 150+ women, I couldn’t but notice how expectant, “charged” and enthusiastic the women in there were, waiting to learn, connect and “fellowship” with one another. Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, what price will you pay for purpose?
The last time I did a wedding guest look book was the one I shared HERE. When I got this fabric, the first thing that came to mind for me was to create another look for a wedding guest. The fabric was originally for my girlfriend’s wedding. Even though I couldn’t attend, my portion of the fabric was kept for me – this is kind of tradition whereby all the bride’s friends wear some sort of “uniform” called aso-ebi traditionally. When I received my fabric, I gave my tailor specifications of what I wanted and here we are.
One of the goals on my vision board is to travel more, starting from last year. And with the help of God, I have travelled up to six times already this year – five solo (alone) and one with the family. With more travel ahead this year, I can say, there is power in penning and pining your dreams – a.k.a making vision boards. In my new book, “Create the Life You Want“, I shared how to make your very own vision boards.
Since I have been travelling a lot, I wanted to share with you in this post, “How to travel stylish, comfortable and chic”. Not only have I found a uniform in my travel blazer, I have found a way of looking all fresh and fine when I arrive on my journey. Now, let’s check it out…..
Can I please ask you to say this with me:
I can’t give up now. I have come too far from where I started from. Even though things may not be as I planned them now, I won’t give up. I believe in the power of my dreams. I won’t give up hope. I will keep my visions alive and so help me God. Well done you.
I know there is this notion that a monochromatic look is only black and white. In fact, I can promise you that if you key in monochrome into Google, a lot of images that is black and white will be fed to you. While monochrome can be said to be a minimal look featuring black and white, it can also mean a single colour palette, hence the word “mono” which means SINGLE or a look with limited colours and hues.
I have been meeting weekly with 5 students (4 boys & a girl) doing leaving cert to encourage and support them on “working REALLY hard” at preparing for their forth coming leaving cert. When I chat with these children, I use real live approaches to drive important messages home for them. When we met last Sunday, I told them that they should do everything possible so as for them not to be left behind. Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Don’t be left behind – This is Not Rapture”. It is an interesting one with real life takes on matters and changes happening…..
For the sake of lovers of African fabrics and styles, today, I bring you some African fabrics and designs I made when I Visited Lagos, Nigeria. This is a try on haul where I shared the fancy modern designs you could create by using fabrics like Ankara and Lace. In Nigeria or in Africa in general, the concept is called “cut and sow”, whereby you buy the fabrics and hand them over to a Designer or Tailor or Dress Maker to make for you. It is known around the world as “made-to measure”. When you hand over your fabrics to the Tailor to make for you, you can either choose your style from a magazine or catalogue or you sketch or create them by yourself. In my own case, I always choose the later and work closely with my Tailor.
It is amazing how things change and how the world can embrace the “impossible”. Once upon a time, the fashion movers and shakers consider fabrics like Ankara too loud, too bold, too colourful and too in your face. But now, the too loud, too bold, too colourful and too in your face African fabrics is / are now “taking over” the fashion scene with people like the Editor in Chief of Vogue – Anna Wintour, Rihanna and Beyonce to mention a few have been spotted wearing Ankara….
Mustard is not quiet yellow, it is however a shade of yellow that is dull or dark. It resembles culinary mustard. So, mustard is the colour of the sauce you get on your favourite street or kiosk hot dog.
Mustard is the perfect alternative to yellow for people who don’t like to wear yellow because it is too bright. Because mustard is a darker shade of yellow, it suits all skin tone. In fact, I can say that you do not need to wear tan before you wear mustard.
It is Summer and YES, the barbecue season is here. A time when many of us love to entertain friends and family in our homes but not necessarily inside the home but outside – in the garden to enjoy some fresh air, cool breeze and sunshine. While a lot of us would love to entertain in our gardens, the garden is not just good enough or “entertainment worthy”. As I continued researching and learning more about landscaping so as for me to get our home garden Summer ready, Landscaping Mississauga kept popping up in my research and it gave me ideas on creating that healthy garden space by using appealing natural stones, interlocking stone pathways and patios and so many fantastic ideas on landscaping your garden this Summer. Now, let’s check out a few ways to maximise your garden this Summer.
Any writer can relate to this: I started writing this text for an Instagram post on Sunday morning and the few lines I wrote reads thus:
“We finished the “Use What You Have – Gifted for a Purpose Masterclass” at about 9.50pm on Saturday night and I am grateful for everyone who joined us. This opened my eyes to what it means to BELIEVE. Maybe I will create a blog to talk more on this…
We can grow on our journeys and discover the hidden potential that we have but if we don’t BELIEVE, it is possible to settle for the less than who we have been called to be.
I went into creating and running the course with the mindset that come what may, that even if it is one person that shows up, I will run the classes.
Night after night, many joined us live. Their testimonials made me realise that all I needed to do was my bit which is to create the course and God will do his bit which is to connect me with the right people via social media.
Will you dare to BELIEVE and do what God has put in your heart? There are people out there who needs what you know. Will you dare to believe and put those things out?”
I did a one video a day challenge last year and because it was quiet successful, I decide to put out 3 videos this week. This time, I decided to do this challenge again because it is the second-third of the year (May – August) and I want to help encourage and motivate you to go out there and do what you have to do to achieve what you truly want for your life…..
