WHAT I EAT IN A DAY TO STAY HEALTHY & FIT IN THIS LOCKDOWN PERIOD

It is my 5th week of working from home due to the lockdown and what this lockdown mean for a lot of people is eating, eating and more eating. I am sure I am not the only one. If you are someone who loves to eat like myself but also want to stay healthy and fit without eating too much, there is a way around this and this is my gift to you today on this blog….

 

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…….

 

ST PATRICK’S DAY ::: RIPPED DENIM & SLOUCHY JUMPER

 

It is that time of the year again when we celebrate the St Patrick’s day. Last year, I went all formal in my skirt-suit with “Shamrock”, this year I decided to go edgier while still incorporating the Irish flag colours into my look.

More than the fun look, I am mindful of the effect of the Coronavirus and the cancellation of all parades in Ireland and everywhere in the world. I am truly emphatic to those who go all out to celebrate the St. Patricks day in one parade or the other.
Please, lets look at the bright side of things by knowing that this is a significant day in the Irish history and let us use this opportunity to pray for peace in the world, will you join me?
I am also very hopeful that there would be some breakthrough with research and medicine to find a cure for this Covid-19, soon.
For now, let us all stay safe by following the prescribed cautionary measures and be our brother’s / sisters keeper.

 

My Yoga Experience & Advantages of Yoga that Would Change Your Life

For the past 12 weeks, I have attended Yoga classes (once a week) and I can say that the very first thing I noticed on my first night of taking yoga is that I slept deeply after a long warm shower.  After continuing yoga, I noticed also that I built strength and learnt how to breathe. How to breathe? For a long time, I didn’t realize that I do not know how to breathe in deeply, taking yoga helped me understand breathing through practical constant practice of breathing in deeply through the nose and then out through the mouth.

Today, I will be sharing some of the importance of Yoga with you. Let’s check it out guys.

 

BLACK FRIDAY SALE ::: ALL THE MONEY & TIME SAVING TIPS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Black Friday wasn’t as popular here in Ireland up until about 2 years ago. Since it is now a tradition and a lot of Irish stores are joining in, I thought to share some tips and tricks for shopping the Black Friday deals or sales with you. These tips and tricks are also relevant to any other kinds of sale and for any other parts of the world too. The idea for buying or shopping the sale is to save money and buy good deals BUT it is possible to also waste money if care is not taken. To avoid such money wasting adventure, please read…….

 

LAYERING | HOW TO KEEP WARM WHILE LOOKING CHIC

Layering_with_Autumn_colours

When I first moved to this beautiful country that is always so cold a.k.a Ireland, I struggled with the weather, especially the colder months. When it gets colder,  I would wear a jacket but would still feel so cold. At the time, my prayer was to get so rich that I do not have to work or have any reason to go anywhere. I just wanted to stay at home to keep warm. However, we all know that life does not work like that .It was my struggle that brought about my way the art of layering.

 

WEDDING ANNIVERSARY + GIORGIO ARMANI SÌ PASSIONE REVIEW

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….

 

MOVING TIPS & MOVING TO LONDON ON MY MIND

If you are following me on Instagram, you may have seen that I went to London as soon as I got back from Lagos. I love London – the architecture, the structures, the energy, the transportation system, the people, the fashion, the food and on and on. What’s not to love about London? If you haven’t visited London, please do, you would like it.

If I have to move to anywhere in the world aside Paris and NewYork, it would be London, although expensive, there are a lot of opportunities there for me. Since this is an option I have been toying with for a while, I have now found a moving company who can help me move with one-thousand-percent ease.

 

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….
