Taking Stock | Jan ’17

This past month, I have been… ADMIRING cute puppies on Instagram. Since I spent time with my little sister’s puppy last holiday, the desire of having my own little one has become stronger. However, I’m definitely not ready to take care of another living being, not even a plant. So I’ll stick to stalking Instagram puppies for now. BOOKMARKING Ankara dresses. I’m looking for cute designs for an Ankara outfit, preferably a dress. Any leads? CELEBRATING the last day of the  ...

Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know it’s almost the end of January, but it is still the beginning of the year so my new year wishes still count, right? I hope your year has been productive and you’re crushing your new year goals and/or resolutions thus far. I, on the other hand, have been settling back into life and getting myself together after my December vacation. I took the past two weeks off to set my intentions for the year and I am now ready to take on 2018 with all its blessings and glitches. I  ...

MY FANCIFUL HOME

Recently, I have been really looking into how I would like my future home to look like. No, I’m not house hunting and will not be anytime soon. I just love going through houses and imagining how mine would be. I’m a very visual person. Having a vision of what my future may possibly look like keeps me motivated. I know that, for one reason or another, it may not turn out exactly like this, but at least I have a starting point. I have an idea of what it could be. I’m  ...

A CLEAN SLATE

Hello there! It’s been a really long time since I last wrote on here. October 12, to be precise. Missed me? Yeah? Maybe? Kinda? Not at all? Well, I’m back anyway. So not a lot has happened since we last talked but let me give you a quick update on what has. 1. We crossed over to 2017! Happy New Year!!! I know, I know that was over a month ago. But it still counts since we haven’t talked since last year. Right? 2. I traveled to Kenya (home). I was home for barely a month,  ...
