Happy New Month: Blog Goals

Welcome guys! It's been a while since I posted here. Happy New Month! It's another opportunity to right all wrongs and take chances; I hope June was good to you.
If you follow me on instagram here you already knew about this post before hand.
I've been busy with a lot of things behind the scenes.
How have you been? It's been a while o...

So, my people,what goals do you have planned out for the month of July?
As for me,I've decided to take my blog/brand serious, (with God's help).
:) At the moment, as much as I want to,I won't be able to post everyday. Here are some of the goals I hope to achieve for Lily  of  Nigeria this July:

I'll be posting four times a week. On Mondays,Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I figured I need to put in my best into this. What do I have to loose?
In Jesus name, I will blog to the "fullest maximum",can I get an Amen somebody?

•On instagram,I'd be posting everyday so be sure to check out my posts. Shebi we're friends, you can follow my account @lilyofnigeria
 
Focus the blog on Fashion + Beauty + Reviews and Life. Each topic has a particular day(you'd have to find out which one falls on which day).

• Not to bite more than I can chew, to focus and achieve(basically point and nail my goals). Brand Mantra: Consistency, quality over quantity. 

Relaunch my YouTube Channel sometime in the month.

• To slay the procrastination that had held me down.

• I'm not going to ignore the fact that some people aren't creative, and go about shamelessly copying pasting other peoples ideas and published work without giving back credit! Henceforth, I will call them out, without pettiness of course.

In other News, we have crossed the 50,000 views threshold. As a matter of fact, we're headed to 55,000! Thank you all so much. I appreciate ALL your support
Even on Facebook we have 120 likes on the page, if you haven't been there before, you can click here


Just before we call it a day, Biko, have y'all seen this expensive post on Instagram?


What are your thoughts? My jaw literally dropped to the ground. Haba Nigerians...!


I wish you a successful July, filled with laughter and joy. By God's grace, I'll see you in my post on Monday.


Love and Peace,
Alexandra.

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…

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season, because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty.
Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February.

People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story.
To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if you have …
