“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” Andy Rooney
Whao!! I haven’t posted a life lately post in like forever “(almost 3 months)”, I’m surprised myself because this is one segment I enjoy writing alot. Forgive my manners; HAPPY NEW MONTH!
A whole lot have been going on these past months and I really don’t know where to start from. Let’s start from the most recent happenings; I’m officially a graduate, my convocation was in October and I bagged my LL.B (hons) degree and was inducted into as a chartered arbitrator ( my convocation post will be up before the end of this week).
This blog is about to be super turnt! I couldn’t drop all my planned posts for October because I was distracted by a lot of happenings, both educational, emotional and otherwise. This month is definitely going to be different, my planned posts are screaming; “POST US ALREADY!”. I’m so excited by the amount of blog posts lined up for the month!
I have also been working on my Instagram feed, trying too hard to curate my posts and post more, I guess it’s a gradual process. I’m so grateful that all my posts have been blessed with likes and comments. I’m also trying to make my Instagram page more engaging and I hope for more improvements and confidence soon too. Thanks a lot to the hundreds of people that actually watch my instastory, I definitely love creating and posting content there. For some unknown reason, I prefer my instastory more than Snapchat. you can also follow my Instagram family HERE
I have been struggling with writing my posts with no emoji for a while now. It all started after some bloggers pointed out to me in THE BLOGGERS ADVOCATE that writing blog posts with emojis makes it less professional, I was baffled and sad at the same time. How do you expect an emoji addict like me to express herself? I didn’t think that I could write without emojis, but then I challenged myself to do so and my first post was basically filled with gifs, then my second had no emojis and right now I’m struggling with my fingers not to add the haha emoji.
Lately, after Instagram, my other heaven is my Pinterest account and I love everything about my account from how it’s neatly arranged to how every single thing on my page absolutely resonates with my personality. I love how you can easily find diys, quotes, art, interior decor, amazing photos and basically everything aesthetic pleasing on Pinterest.
Some months ago, I was literally wallowing in the ocean of self insufficiency, I felt like a failure, like I wasn’t living up to my expectations, I felt empty and I questioned the meaning of life and living. I must say that it was a terrible phase for me. It was so bad that I couldn’t even pray in peace, because my whole idea of the savior Jesus Christ, was filled with “what ifs”. I was devastated by Life, I can remember saying so in this post. But somehow, I was able to pull through. Thanks alot to everyone that called, texted and commented, you helped me overcome this phase, I’m grateful. I also have a post on this phase in construction too. It covers my journey with overcoming self insufficiency. Anticipate!
NEW: for a while now, I have been fueling my photography side. I have also been trying my hands on flat lays too. I guess I will post my improvements when I’m more confident in my skills, lol.
READING: you know almost 3 months have passed since my last Life Lately post and I have read more than 20 novels if not more than but then let me point out the only physical novel I read which is FRACTURED by Karin Slaughter. This is definitely a must read for my fellow mystery and thrillers lovers.
ANTICIPATING: Gt fashion show! Heineken Lagos Fashion Show was the Bomb! I definitely fed my eyes with so many awesome designs, even though I wasn’t there. I’m just hoping that gt fashion show will have alot more in store for my eyes. I have a post cooking up on my best looks for HLFDW. *I spilled the beans again!* I also can’t wait to watch the SWAT, my baby; Shemar Moore is the main character in this series.
GRATEFUL: for life, God’s Grace upon my life and the success of my Thrift Shop! How my thrift shop is growing so fast even surprises me more. I didn’t see it coming. We sold out in less than one month of launching! I’m so grateful! You can follow my thrift shop page here too.
LIKES: Spanish and Classical songs. My Spanish is not so good, but I’m still the no one fan of them pikito songs.
Guys, this post is getting too long and I’m not even done with the updates *sad face* till the next life lately my loves.
Do you think that emojis make blog posts unprofessional? Which one do you prefer; instastory or Snapchat? Is Pinterest really all that? Do you prefer digital novels to physical novels? Team emoji? or Team no Emoji? Let’s interact!
HAPPY NEW MONTH!
