LIFE LESSONS I LEARNT FROM BUYING A NEW WASHING MACHINE (Motivation for Monday)

I was excited as the Installer of the brand new washing machine I bought knocked on the door because I haven’t done laundry for about 10 days. You know not doing laundry for 10days is long, when you have children. My thought was, thank God, I can finally get laundry out of the way before we pile on more clothes.

As excited as I was about the arrival of the washing machine, I never knew that a mere washing machine would teach me life lessons. In today’s post, I want to encourage you with these life lessons……

 

BEST NATURAL HAIR CARE, TREATMENT & MAINTENANCE TIPS

 

Whoever says growing or wearing natural hair is hard has no clue about what they are talking about. Perhaps it is because they didn’t seek knowledge about the subject of natural hair. I am here to assure you that everyone who chooses to, can rock natural hair and can do so gracefully.

My hair has grown tremendously and I am excited to come back and share the growth with you and also share an updated hair care, treatment and maintenance TIPS with you + what I found out about my hair growth and curl pattern.

 

HOW TO KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE ARE NOT THAT INTO YOU (BLOGGING FOR SUCCESS PART 8)

If you are a “serious” Blogger, you would know by now that Blogging is not a child’s play. It is not for the faint hearted. It is time consuming, brain tasking and it involves you knowing a little bit of everything or everything if I may say. From taking photos to editing them to writing great contents to marketing the contents you have spent time to create, you must know everything or almost everything, especially if you are just starting out and can’t afford to outsource.

Blogging is not rice and beans (a.k.a blogging is NOT easy) BUT it is doable and can lead to GREAT opportunities and has a very big potential to lead to phenomenal things, including being your own boss.

If you are following me on Facebook, you probably saw the post I shared about the Fenty beauty by Rihanna.

This post is NOT about Fenty Beauty BUT on how we can use social media in a positive way and doing the right thing at the right time + WHY we must all be creators.

 

Fulfil Her Dreams With The Ideal Engagement Ring

 

Why Look For That Extra Special Ring?

 

It is the most ornate of the three rings in a bridal set.  The engagement ring encapsulates all the love and optimism of you both. It should have exuberance and flair. It should say something about you as a couple. And most of all, it needs to be special for her, because it is her hand it will grace. It can’t be just any old ring, or a style you’re likely to see someone else wearing often. Here are some things you should think about as you look for the perfect ring to present her as you ask that momentous question, “Will you marry me?”

GO OUT, MAGIC HAPPENS OUTSIDE (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

Change they say is a constant thing and in life, we have to be open to change. In her book, Mindset, Dr Carols Dweck, a Professor of Psychology, describes those who are NOT open to change as ones with a fixed mindset. These set of people hate to try new things, they hate change or challenges and if possible they would not change anything even if the thing does not serve it’s purpose or work anymore…….

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on something I call, Go Out, Magic Happens Outside!

 

GIORGIO ARMANI SÌ – A TELL-ALL REVIEW

My children were whispering to themselves as we went through the airport, not that I didn’t know what they were talking about, still I asked them, so, what are you whispering about? They both said together, you know mum. Well, I knew exactly what they were talking about and this was it….each time I go through the airport, I shop perfume and skin care….. If I am not buying after shave for my husband, I am buying perfume for me or skin care…..

On duty free while on our Summer holiday this year, I got the Giorgio Armani Sì and Clinique but because I have done the review of the Clinique for you before HERE, today, I bring you the full review of the Giorgio Armani SÌ

 

WHY I DID A VIDEO A DAY CHALLENGE + WHY YOU SHOULD DO A CHALLENGE TOO

True leadership is leading by example I believe. If as leaders, we are out there inspiring others to do better and be better, it is important that we ourselves are not left behind in doing better so as to be better than who we are today……

I give my all in making those inspiring and motivation videos and while I do so, I never forget to apply all of those tips I share to my life too so I am not only dishing out but taking in as well, if you know what I mean. And because I believe I could do so much more than I am doing now, I set a challenge for myself this week to make a video a day. Of course I know this wasn’t going to be easy, still I did it….

 

BELL SLEEVE + HOW TO “SLAY” A CASUAL LOOK

 

I am one of those ones who button their shirts all the way to the top. If you call it “missionary style” you wouldn’t be wrong. As lovely as this blouse is, it wouldn’t make sense not to button it all the way to the top because that is the beauty of it and so, I did. In this post, I bring you a chic way to “slay” denim with a “baby girl pink” bell sleeve blouse…..

 

DRAW THE LINE (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

As a writer, I challenge my imagination to write different types of blogs. I write fashion, beauty, lifestyle and motivation and more…Not only do I write, I read a lot too. Okay now, once upon a time, I used to think that I do not have the time to READ. I was one of those ones who said things like, once I leave school, that is it, I would never read again. Sounds familiar? I know some of you reading this may have that mindset too 🙂 Not to worry, we all learn daily, only when we give ourselves the chance to learn…..

If you are one of the ones who say things like, once I finish school, I will never read/study again, you are basically saying, I want to stop growing because the day we stop learning or acquiring knowledge, we stop growing or we start dieing…

Today on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage on something I call, draw the line. Let’ do this……..

3 Life Lessons to Learn from Conor McGregor (Motivation for Monday)

Photo Credit: buzz.ie

 

After his defeat in the Saturday night fight, Conor McGregor partied at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas according to TMZ. Even though he lost the fight to Floyd Mayweather, he was said to have earned around $100million (€83.9million) according to Irish Independent + more on the way from other deals.  Trust me, with that kind of money, any “loser” would party and foot the bill of 85k at a post-fight party. But wait, yep, McGregor lost the Saturday night fight to Floyd Mayweather but truly, is he really a loser?

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I have a small story to share with you on WHY I think McGregor is not a loser and WHY we must all “be McGregored” by learning these 3 lessons from his life so far……..

 

6 MAJOR MISTAKES BLOGGERS WHO DON’T MAKE MONEY ARE MAKING

This month of August alone, I have gotten 10’s of messages about how to make money from Blogging. While every Bloggers journey is different, I believe every Blogger should get rewarded for the work they put it. Emphasis on the WORK they put in. 

Today, I will share with you some of the reasons WHY a lot of Bloggers don’t make money and may never make money if these mistakes are not corrected.

 

FINE WINE ::: ACCORDION PLEATED SKIRT & RIB-KNIT

 

I love shopping the sale BUT I love to use my head (think about it) while doing so. When I shop the sale, I shop the same way I shop when the items are not on sale. I consider durability of the item; how will it fit or match what I already have in my closet and in how many ways can I style the pieces? I encourage you to do the same so you are not wasting your hard earned money.

In my recent sale buy, I bought this accordion pleated skirt and rib-knit and in today’s look, I slay like I am on the run way.

 

EARLY RISERS (Motivation for Monday)

I do not buy newspapers BUT I am subscribed to the newspaper of the county where I live so I can read local news and learn what is going on in my community and country.  Since the results of the leaving certs is now out, I was on the look out for that news…I checked out all articles written on the leaving cert specifically to check this year’s performance. As I looked, I saw a girl from one of the county’s who did really well, the girl power in me would not let me notice the boys first. Sorry boys. As I looked further, I saw another headline that says, “the boy with the highest possible score in this year’s leaving cert”. What the boy said in the papers made sense and because I was inspired by it,  I bring you, early risers.

 

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”
