GROWING APART| Tips to Help You Fix Your Friendship

Image
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: Y

  Quote of the Day: Many are the Afflictions of the Righteous, but the LORD Delivers Him from them All.- Psalm 34:19 You are highly welcome to today's post. After all the hard work I put into typing the first one, the stupid google application for Blogger I was using froze and deleted everything I had put together. I was frustrated, and decided to cool off. Thus, the time difference as promised here   Most of you probably came here because of yesterday's Facebook, and Instagram post. Welcome, I recommend that you look around the blog, and read other posts as well after this one. Sometime ago, my friend Ola and I met up. She had just come back from Russia and suggested that we meet up ASAP. I agreed, I was so excited to see her after almost six years. We agreed to meetup on a Sunday. I suggested a fairly secure waterside location in Victoria Island that we were both familiar with, and one that our parents were very sure of; one I had been longing to see for mysel

Quote of the Day : S eek 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 Instagram you 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 discuss

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! Welcome to today's post. Get some hot chocolate or a cold drink to sip as you read, it's a fairly long post. When I started out blogging I was desperate for a creative outlet because I am passionate about the arts.  However, with time and because I've invested a lot of time and money into this, I began to drift towards the concept that I can make a living out of my hobby(isn’t that everyone’s dream?) The question as to whether or not starting a blog in 2018 is late will have have a lot of answers from different folks. I feel that starting a blog now is both harder, and easier. It is harder because the competition is steep, and you must stand out and be consistent in publishing quality content for your audience. It’s easier now because a lot of things have been simplified. And, there are a lot of bloggers out there willing

After all, it is only the mediocre that are always at their best.- Jean Giraudou x Hello beautiful, thank you for stopping by to read today's post, without your support I won't be a content creator. If you're a brand trying to decide whether or not to work with a Nigerian influencer/content creator like me, please take time to go through my media kit here Spring is almost here. What flowers are your favourite? Mine are tulips and roses. Guys, I haven't been regular on instagram because I took some time off to go back to my drawing board. I felt as if I was gradually falling into the pit of being just another instagram blogger and i didn't like that. I was getting lost in the noise, and so I had to withdraw in order to remind myself why I really care enough to share pictures, and captions that mean a lot to me. Anyway, now that I think I've found my voice I'll give it a go, please follow me here One of the highlights of this wee
