TRAVEL HACKS & HOW TO PACK YOUR LUGGAGE LIKE A PRO

After all the bulk of work I did towards the end of last year and early this year, I decided to take a little break. I went away for 4 nights to relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Before I left, I decided to create another travel vlog because the one I shared last Summer here on the blog was very well received by you. Thanks to everyone who read,  I enjoyed reading your kind feedbacks.

Without further ado, today, I bring you my brand new travel hack video and the step by step method I follow when I pack my carry on.

 

THIS IS WHY YOU MUSTN’T LOOSE FOCUS (Motivation for Monday)

A wise one once coined an acronym for the word FOCUS as “Follow One Course Until Successful”. As simple as that acronym seem or sound, a lot of us tend to dabble into too many things at the same time. While there is nothing wrong with that, a lot of times when we do that, we tend to not give in our best while doing everything together and so we are average or do a mediocre job in all of the things we combine together. To be able to get ahead and achieve a lot, it is best to FOCUS. Today on Motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you to FOCUS and how to do so….

CHALLENGES MEAN GROWTH (Motivation for Monday)

In a recent research done by Forbes, a lot of people came out to say, the word “problem” scares them. I believe that was so because the word itself is described with synonyms like complications, trouble, difficult situations etc. That sounds scary right? However, in the same research, many say the word Challenge seem like one that could embrace because you can describe the word challenge with synonyms like summon, dare, etc.

Today, my first encouragement to you would be to see every difficult situation you may be going through as a challenge and not a problem. Personally, I see a challenge as an opportunity to dare to do something new and an opportunity to grow.

And guess what, many big organisations has now adopted the word challenge instead of problems.  Today on Motivation for Monday, I bring you, Challenge Means Growth….

 

PINSTRIPE ::: HOW TO WEAR ONE SKIRT IN THREE WAYS

 

Other than dresses, I love skirts. They do not only make me feel like a lady, they are versatile enough to pair with a chic blouse for the work place or for going out. For example, go for a halter neck blouse, skirt, heels and a clutch or mini bag and you are good for dinner; go for a clean crisp white shirt with flats or heels and you are good for work and on and on. Skirts are great like that. Today, let’s check out one of my oldie but goodie skirts….

 

WHO IS A COACH & DO YOU NEED ONE? (Motivation for Monday)

Having “failed” before because I didn’t know what to do on my own and I didn’t seek help from those who know, I encourage everyone never to suffer in silence. If you don’t know what to do after trying all you can, ASK for help. This is the way forward. It is okay not to know what to do but not asking for help shouldn’t be an option be it in business, relationship, career, education, training or with life issues in general.

Following different requests I have received about the subject “Coach”, today, I bring you a motivation blog called, Who is a Coach and Who needs a Coach? + How to Choose the Best Coach for You.

CLARITY BROUGHT ME HERE :: FROM UNEMPLOYED TO GETTING A MASTERS (Motivation for Monday)

As I prepared for my exams over the holidays, I took on my first two premium “mentees”. They were launching blogs and businesses and needed my help on how to get online – create questionnaires, coin business “terms” together and market products online, send business emails, attract the right clients and on and on….

Sincerely, I didn’t want to take anyone on at the time because I wondered, how on earth would I be able to combine wearing a “mentor’s” hat with exams? BUT? I was confident that I could make it work and so I cracked on….

WHAT IS THE BEST BEAUTY SECRET?

Agbani Darego is one of my favourite people in the whole world. For one, she was once a Miss World and secondly, she has an effortless style with class and grace.

LET THEM SAY (Motivation for Monday)

Realistically whether good or bad, people would always have an opinion of us. A lot of times, this happens because the expectations of others of us may not be what who we are or how we want to live our lives. Unfortunately, when we do not conform to what people expects of us, we may not be their biggest fan and or they may not like us or what we do. Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “let them say”.

Today, I am writing to you to encourage you that no matter what you are going through or no matter how “poor” you are feeling, please, in EVERYTHING be thankful.

FALL / WINTER SKIN CARE TIPS

The weather is gone colder now and this means just one thing: dryness of the skin. And if there is anything I do not joke with in all seasons, it would be moisture. I love to moisturise, moisturise and moisturise more. When I did my skin care routine on video featuring my everyday skin care routine, one of my lovely viewers left me a kind comment saying, “sincerely, I can’t figure out how old you are. Your skin is so youthful” 🙂 That made me smile. You can see the video HERE with more comments.

Without further ado, today, I bring you a beauty haul + some skin care TIPS for this season .
