I know I didn’t take stock last month so it may have seemed like I had stopped with all the changes happening on the blog, but it is a segment that I would like to continue so that we can still touch base. And sure enough, I have a lot to tell you. But before we get started, I just wanted to wish you a blessed and productive second half of the year. You may not be where you wanted/thought you’d be but remember, it’s never to late to start so go for whatever it is you want. Now we can start hehe.
Making: arrangements for the next blog shoot. It’s been really exciting creating all this content for you and I have received great feedback so far, I hope to keep putting out better and more informative content. Speaking of, there will be a gap week next week as I put together more posts. Don’t worry, it’ll be worth the wait!
Eating: clean these days. Lol couldn’t even say that with a straight face. But I am really trying guys.
Drinking: coffee! I know I have a problem but I really can’t start off the day without it and function well.
Reading: quite a bit in the last two months. I realized it’s really important what you feed your mind as this contributes to its development so I’ve been reading a lot of inspirational and self help books. So far, I’ve read #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, Frank Bettger’s How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in Selling and I just started on Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I’m actually quite surprised by myself but I guess once you start, you crave more.
Wanting: a vacation to a tropical place.
Playing: Wild Thoughts by Dj Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, it’s my new favorite jam. Maybe the fact that they sampled one of my old favorite songs has something to do with it or maybe it’s because it’s a collabo between two of my top artists Riri and Bryson…either way the tune is lit!!!
Wasting: no time going after my dreams. Most times we look for any and every excuse to justify why we can’t do things but if we keep waiting for the right time and all the conditions to be just right, then we will never do whatever it is that we really want to do. So I am learning to take risks, dive in and make the most of what I currently have. So far, so good.
Creating: all sorts of things. From blog content to jewelry, I am just so happy to be in the space I am in right now.
Wishing: I had a slice of chocolate fudge cake right now. It would go so well with this coffee. Mmmh…
Enjoying: Doing what I love. This year has been rough, I’ve been disappointed, I’ve been underestimated but I’ve learnt a lot through the process. Thanks to my family and friends who have been so supportive, I didn’t quit and even though sometimes it gets tough, it’s been amazing because at the end of the day I am doing what I love.
Liking: all the creativity I’m seeing out here. There is a lot of talent in Kenya and it’s so cool to see it being nurtured.
Wondering: how much I weigh. My pants are all becoming a bit snug and seeing as I haven’t weighed myself in a long time, I can’t help but wonder…although I’m scared to see what the scale has to say.
Loving: this bralette I recently got, can’t wait to feature it on the blog.
Hoping: that with perseverance, consistency and faith, I will get to where I want to be.
Marveling: at how easy it is for us as human beings to tear each other down. Especially when we see others excelling…I think there is room for all of us to grow. And if you can help someone achieve their dreams even if it doesn’t benefit you directly, do it! Trust me, it is rewarding in it’s own way.
Needing: a hot shower. Scratch that…I need a hot tub that I could lay in all morning, it’s so bloody cold!
Wearing: no make up out of the house a lot these days. It just feels so good to be free sometimes and let my skin breathe.
Following: the show ‘How Do I Look’ on E! I know it’s an old show and I used to love it when it actually aired but now I love it more, I love the concept behind it and I love that it’s all about fashion and changing people’s lives. Things that I want to do.
Noticing: that the way we look at things and people can completely change our attitude towards them. So I have been trying to look at things from a positive angle…not always the easiest thing to do but the more you do it, the more it becomes a habit. A very good one at that.
Knowing: that today is going to be an awesome day!
Thinking: of the new stock going up on Urban Thrifters this week. We’ve got some amazing things so be sure to check it out while stocks last.
Feeling: a bit tired. For some reason I haven’t been sleeping well.
Bookmarking: photo shoot concepts.
Opening: my instagram. I’m addicted for real!
Giggling: at the weekend that was. Had an awesome sleep over with my girl and best believe there were a lot of giggles.
Feeling: grateful for having such amazing people in my life. That includes you for walking this journey with me and always coming back to see what I have to say. It makes me want to be and do better.
Thanks for stopping by
