Quote of the Day: Nobody sees the grind, they only see the shine.Hi guys! How was last week like for you? I'm here watching the weekly summary/eviction of Big Brother Naija aka BBNaija housemates(no, I'm not following the show). They just evicted Bitto, princess, vandora, dee-one. I've had this ankara material for about 3 years and decided to put it to good use and had it made into this gown I designed. It's a cold shoulder gown with a bad side slit by the left side. Oshe fashion designer in the making. On a serious note though, what have you been up to lately? I published a post on Saturday, you should check it out ASAP. In other news, a lot of conferences and events are taking place this season for bloggers. One in particular I'm super pumped about is Social Media Week Lagos (SMWL). Yes, I will be going. I hope you are too. Say hi if you see me there, promise not to form. This weekend our own, BLACK PANTHER premiered across the world and here in Naija, and it was HU…

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.- Proverbs 22:29.

Hi guys! For the longest time I have had this post in mind to share with you. It struck me this month when someone said are you happy with this hobby?  What do you want out of it? Is it a hobby or a business?
Basically, it all depends on what you want out of your blog at the end of the day.  #SpeakingIntoExistence this blog will feed me, and pay my bills this year. I don't know or care to know how but it will happen.  If you've reached this stage,it means you've transitioned from your blog being just a hobby to it being a business. Babe, I encourage you to keep reading this post, because I have several tips to share with you.
1. You have to be determined and intentional. Make up your mind, and give it your all. It's your business after all. This includes finding a solid name you'll stick with and be proud of in five years time *wink*
2. Make a plan…

HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE

Hello Children of God! Long time no post. I have been working Behind the Scenes to bring you great content here on the blog and on my social media channels. I know you've noticed my consistency on Instagram, here I kid you not, it's slowly but surely working out. Thank you for you for your likes as well on my Facebook page. I would not be a content cretor without your support. My vision for this Lily of Nigeria is that it continues to inspire people, and goes viral on the internet for good this year so that our family increases. 

My first YouTube video for the year went up yesterday. It's a Mukbang video, so i am not expecting all of you to like it. But, just in case you want to take a peek (please help your girl by subscribing to my channel), I will leave a link below for you.
So, a mukbang is a video where people cook(sometimes), and eat. Basically you watch people eat large/medium amounts of food over the internet. Some take it to the next level by highlighting the sou…

HAPPY 2018!

Hey guys! Welcome to 2018(I know i'm late it's the 17th day after all). Y'all, we are now live on www.lilyofnigeria.com ! The domain was a present. I also changed the theme of the blog to one that loads faster, and consumes less data (less than 2MB) at the homepage. All for you.

I recorded a lot of successes on this blog last year, and a major heart break. Along the line, my host company and the domain company had serious glitches that caused this blog to load very slowly, and on some browsers it didn't load at all. This was a heavy burden to bear, and discouraged me from blogging as often as I would have hoped.

I have continued to meet a lot of people, and brands as a result of this blog, for which I am grateful.


If you are a regular here on the blog, you'll know we don't do resolutions, we do goals. This year, I have some serious goals set for Lily of Nigeria, and I hope I achieve them. All of them.


Just in case you are unaware, I am on YouTube Better still…
