THE WHITE BLAZER + MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

For this blog, I had two choices, use the images/photos I have or don’t share any blog at all. I choose the former because when things don’t go the way we plan, we have to look for a way out or other alternatives. Why?

One of the characteristics of a leader or one who desires to be a leader is to look for a way out even when it has to do with a look book / outfit of the day. Today on Motivation for Monday, I will share some leadership principles to learn from an Eagle with you. Please read………..

 

JANUARY BLOG POSTS IN REVIEW & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

 

It was just like yesterday when we said Happy New Year and all of a sudden, January has come to an end. Amazing! This goes to show that time waits for no one. So how was January for you?  January for me was busy. I am venturing into new things and just like any other new thing, it’s been challenging but not what I couldn’t handle, thank God.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST COATS FOR YOUR HEIGHT & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

  My second read this year is a book called Mindset by Carol Dweck. I have learnt what kind of mindset works for growth and which one doesn’t. Coincidentally, one of my Mentees (I currently have 6 of them from different parts of the world) wrote an amazing article about the power of the mind…

MINIMALISM & VALIDATION

 

One of the most REWARDING thing I have enjoyed as a Blogger is that I have built an audience that truly believes in me. I am indeed grateful for this.

At the weekend, I responded to so many emails from all my social networks; Instagram, Facebook and Gmail. I take one hour daily before I go to bed to read and respond to emails. The two that brought tears to my eyes this past weekend were the ones I received from a lady from Nigeria and another from the UK via my Facebook page. I have cut out names to keep identity secured…….please read below:

 

COLOURBLOCKING & SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA

 
During this past holidays, I rested more than I would normally do and I feel terrific about it. I also read books and selected the books I wanted to read for the entire year – I have bought 2 of the books already and reading them. I also listened to a lot of podcasts, made videos and did more planning for the year. I also did some faffing around with the boys in our pyjamas, watched movies, ate at “sinful hours” and we had lots of fun in general.

So What did you do? What did you plan for the year? I am curious to know so please share them with me below…

 

SIMPLE ELEGANCE ::: WHAT I WORE FOR MY BOOK LAUNCH & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

Honestly, the last thing on my mind for the book launch was what to wear. I wasn’t so particular about what to wear because although it was important, it wasn’t urgent. What was urgent to me were things like; getting the cake sorted, ensuring bags to take away was delivered and most importantly, ensuring books was available for reveal and launch.

While what to wear on the day wasn’t my focus, I knew I wanted to stand out on the day. But wait, what does it mean to stand out?

 

BLUE VELVET & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

On Saturday, I spoke at an Enterprise & Careers day in Dublin. There were other speakers from different works of life; 2 Doctors, an amazing lady from Google, a Psychiatrist, a Forensic Accountant and an Amazing Irish Youth Pastor who also happens to be an Author. It was an awesome event and I thoroughly enjoyed been a part of it.

LOOK BOOK :: HOW TO STYLE LEGGINGS | MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY :: NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

WORK STYLE IN BLACK-BROWN & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

Black and brown are not 2 colours a lot of people mix together because both hues are dark. However in the Autumn and Winter, they are 2 of the most popular colours you see around when it comes to clothes. You see them in form of coats or jackets, and so many other accessories. I went to the shops yesterday and I saw so many blacks and browns(tan, coffee, dark brown) on the shop displays and they look so fine……..

Today, on Motivation, Should I give up on my set goals now?

 

OCTOBER BLOGS IN REVIEW & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 
Here in Ireland, it is a bank holiday today. I believe it is the same in other parts of the world that celebrate “Halloween”. Although it is a bank holiday, someone like myself and many other online Entrepreneurs (Bloggers, Vloggers, Writers, Coaches etc) have to work. It is interesting when you live a lap top life because there is always something to do 🙂

Furthermore, even though I have to work, working today is one of those things I consider IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT! What do I mean? I will tell you that on Motivation for Monday, please stay with me.

 

TWO SEASONS IN STYLE + MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

When you think of Autumn, you think dull colours like black, navy or even purple or warm tone shades of floral like brown or orange. When you think of summer on the other hand, you think delicate, sheer and breathable fabrics. In today’s post, I decided to mix pieces from two seasons……

On Motivation for Monday, I will share with you one principal that will make you get everything you need in life.

 

My MAMMOGRAM Experience + CYST Removal From My Breast (Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

“Recently”, I found an abnormality in my right breast. I was not sure so I went in to see my Doctor who immediately checked to see what the problem was…

When it comes to my body and self care, I do not leave anything to chance. I do my best to take care of myself because I have to be well to take care of every one else God has trusted in my care. I encourage everyone, especially all women and mothers to do the same. You have to be well before you can take care of other people.  Please take care of yourself always.

WORK MODE, MUMMY MODE & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

 

As a mum myself, I know how hard it can be to joggle work, family life and everything in between. Sometimes, you get back from work and then it’s time to bring Junior to football or Sarah to ballet or dancing. Does that sound familiar?

On today’s post, I bring you a quick styling on how to go from work mode to mummy mode without changing clothes. Let’s do this. How are you by the way?

 

I SPENT A DAY WITH YOUTUBE AT GOOGLE HQ, DUBLIN

 

 

At every chance I get, I do my best to inspire everyone to be who they want to be. On today’s post, I have been given another opportunity to share and remind you that it is okay to be who you want to be irrespective of your age, sex, circumstance, background,economic situation or where you live. Your present situation or status doesn’t define you, what you do in that situation is all the matters.

Last Saturday, 17/09, I had the opportunity to go and spend the day with YouTube at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. I opened my email about 2 weeks ago and I saw this invitation. I was humbled, honoured and happy because I was preparing for such a time as this and that is why I do my best to give my YouTube Channel everything.

Since I started doing Youtube, I do my best to upload at least one video a week. A lot of times I make 2 videos doing what I love; beauty, fashion and motivation / inspiration.

 

 

ALEXA CHUNG FOR M&S AND MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

I have followed Alexa Chung’s career for a while. She is one of those underdog in the fashion world. Alexa is a British Fashion Model, Television presenter and Contributing Editor at British Vogue. When I heard of her collaboration with M&S (Marks & Spencer), I was curious to see what she designed in collaboration with them.

As for M&S, a lot of people think of them as a not so fashion forward brand when it comes to clothing. However, this days, they are “uping” their game and this is why they now do collaboration with modern women of influence to bring modern and on trend vibe to their collection. By the way, if you look well in M&S, you will find great and fashionable items there. And they do great lingerie too.

ASK MJ ::: WHAT DO I WEAR TO AN ALL WHITE SUMMER WEDDING?

 

I count it all joy when I open my mail and I find requests from people and from different parts of the world. It is a reminder to me of why we were called. We were called to serve. To everyone who is not serving with the gifts you have been given, you may be missing a lot in changing lives. Today on Motivation for Monday, I will share more with you why it is important to serve but first let me answer this request from a dear reader.

 

PLAYING IT SAFE ::: CUT OUT CAMI & PANT-SUIT
