3 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU TRAVEL

 QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Travel makes one modest. You see what tiny place you occupy in the world.”― Gustave Flaubert


Hey you, how is life treating you this April? I hope you are doing well. This is one post I have been hoping to finally publish. And, apart from the fact that today is Travel Tuesday in the cyber World, today seems like a good day to finally publish this particular post which I have had in my "draft" for a while now. I hope you enjoy it, and, that it will be of help to you in some way.

DO YOUR RESEARCH:

Try to find out more about where you are heading to.
TIP: Check out the best places to visit for sightseeing. That is, the best places for food, shopping,gaming,or any traditional custom displays like festivals or on going carnivals…even, best place to people watch.


MAKE LISTS:


Make lists, and use them as your guide. Make a before and after list. Your before list should contain things that you will be needing there. This list will help you when you are packing, and make it easier for you. I suggest that you write this list 3 days before you start packing and review it a day before you start packing, so that you can cross out the things you don’t feel too strongly about anymore. This method has continuously helped me a lot.
Your after list should contain the things that you intend to buy there, and the things you might need to see there.
Be spontaneous with them. Feel free to arrange things according to their order of priority. For instance, places you need to visit/see for yourself, and, places you might want to go to. Also, distinctive things you need to buy. This will help you sift out these things from other things that may catch your fancy when you get there, as you may be carried away. If you can, avoid purchasing junk with your hard earned money. Your mantra should be, will I be needing this in the next 2 years? If yes, ask yourself again, will I feel that this was worth my money in the next 5 years? If no, please be kind to yourself, and, drop it. However, if you have the strong urge that you will be needing it, do buy.



I hope you are enjoying this post. Keep reading.



RECHECK YOUR STUFF:

In order to make sure you don’t leave anything behind like your tooth brush or trusty sponge or loofah. This last point will ensure that you do not leave any stone upturned. Check that your tickets, camera, sanitary/hygiene items are intact, and where you can easily retrieve them. Go through your outfits, pair them up with accessories in your mind; pack one spare outfit if you are travelling for more than four days (you can never tell).


I hope this post is of help to you. Did you enjoy it? Let me know what you think in the comments.








 That’s it for now guys, see you in my next post.
Sending you lots of positive energy,
Your Friend.

GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Hello Lovelies,
Welcome to today’s post. It rained cats and dogs yesterday so the weather here in Lagos is subtle and cool. What’s the weather like where you live?


Today’s post is not a fashion post per se, it’s more of a lifestyle post. If you follow me on Instagram here (please go and do so now), you may/may not have seen my most recent post; where I gave you babes a heads up on today’s post. Please turn on post notification at the top right corner of my page so that you never miss another post from me, the new algorithm is a mess but there’s hope.

1.Call them: Try to reach out to them. Nothing brings back memories than hearing your friend’s voice. Distance should never be an issue in friendships that mean that world to you; unless you see this as an opportunity to cut off ties with that person.

2.Make A Plan To See Them Eye To Eye: You can pick a mutual location you both enjoy, or one you have been longing to visit and meet up there. TIP: You can write out a list of things you’d li…

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day: Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you.
Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagramyou would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria, but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds.


Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discussed it with a trusted family m…
