Taking Stock | March X Photo Diary
Oh man, guys. I miss you.
I have been
busy lazy to write a post..eh! this wasn’t the plan for this year o. I’m already slacking – are slacking as well? oya confess let’s feel guilty together.
I’ve read taking stock from different bloggers, been inspired by some for the longest time, but I’ve been a tinny whinny bit sceptical to join but fuelled by desire to do something a little different on the blog today and get more personal on the blog, I decided to give this taking stock posts a shot, and I quite enjoyed the process. So, I’m going to share one every month. I hope you enjoy…
And O! Hope you don’t mind my pictures in between….kinda a photo diary.
So here we go,
Making: An effort to be more time conscious and manage time properly in order to achieve a lot within 24 hours… technically 18hrs (6hrs beauty sleep). I have a daily schedule – the first few hours for quiet time and work out (I took 45mins jog/walk this morning yo!) – my blog – my actual job – my side hustle (web design mostly) – then straight to bed.
Cooking: more keto compliant meals. I made an attempt on the cabbage swallow which came out really nice. I’ve been off and on the keto diet. It works but my love for ‘real’ food wouldn’t let me be great! I really do want to shed 20kg. Hopefully, I share my journey/progress with you’ll soon as I’ve decided to start over again today.
Drinking: my slim tea (28 days detox) atm. I don’t like the taste of this tea but I woke up feeling bloated and it does help reduce bloating. Also drinking lots of water because keto… and drinking flat tummy drink (Apple cider Vinegar – if you want the recipe leave a comment below) first thing in the morning and before bed. It works!
Reading: 29, single and Nigerian by Naija single girl. This book is the funniest book I’ve read in forever. The story is totally relatable especially if you’re Nigerian or African.
Wanting: to loose 20kg desperately… well not desperately because my life is a constant battle between my love for food and not wanting to be fat (I’m already fat #sigh). The other day my mum caught me eating and literally gave me the ‘I just pity for you’ look then said; I don’t know what I’ll do with you, why can’t you just discipline yourself and loose this weight once and for all. And she ended with well, your husband has to love your size just as my husband loves mine. He had better! 😒😒😒😒😒
Looking: forward to all I hope to achieve at the end of the year
Playing: John Legend’s You & I (nobody in the world) on repeat. Dear future husband, I have decided this will be ‘one’ of our first dance songs.
Wasting: no time on social media!
Creating: a number of sketches and ideas for my clothing line collection
Sewing: Nothing!!!!! Not learning how to sew at a young age is my biggest regret in life (story for another day), dropping out of sewing school is also another regret. At least I know the basics and it’s not too late to learn
Wishing: my soulmate, my missing rib, my prince charming, my everything… will find me already. Hian! This single life is not fun anymore. 😪😪😫😫😥😥
Enjoying: my own company a lot more than ever before
Waiting: for my bae! 😍😍😍😍😍😍
Liking: Dubai weather and praying summer doesn’t come at all. We literally get roasted in the sand pit. 56 degrees yo!
Wondering: when I’ll build my multi-billion dollar empire! I mean how much longer will it take?? Arrrgghhh!!!
Loving: my clients telling me; you’re a star, you rock, great job!
Hoping: I launch my fashion business(es) as soon as possible. Stay tuned loves! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽👯👯👯
Marvelling: at the crazy and unreal stories I read on joro’s Instagram page 😳😳😯😯😲😲 (Do you follow his page also?). Honestly, these stories has changed my perception about marriage. To think they’re all real life experiences and not holly/nolly/Bollywood stories. Just wow! My story will be different o.
Needing: to decorate my room. I’m thinking black, white and a touch of gold – can’t wait show you’ll when I am done. YES! I’m excited about this one
Smelling/perceiving: the aroma of the pepper soup my mum is cooking… unfortunately, it’s for her church member that just delivered
Wearing: A big T-shirt and a short. I love to be free when I’m at home – I mean, let the organs breath! if I could stay naked then I gladly will but I wouldn’t hear the end of it. Thanks to mumc. She says stuffs like what if the neighbours are videoing you? You’d wake up to your nakedness on the internet. Mind you, they are meters away and during the day even at night you can’t see inside the houses. #Africanmothers
Noticing: how writing this taking stock is not as easy as I thought, the list feels endless but I’m enjoying every bit of it
Knowing: that I will be very successful and will be an amazing wife, mother, mentor and o! I’m already an amazing friend 👸🏽👸🏽👸🏽💁🏽💁🏽💁🏽
Feeling: Beyond grateful (and amazed) for how my year has turned out so far and excited about deciding to become a full member of COZA Dubai 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Thinking: of different needs and creating a businesses around them – offer solutions and also thinking of SHOPPING… been a minute!
Following: more bloggers and fashion designers on Instagram
Hearing: the sound of air planes flying over my roof every 5mins. So freaking annoying! My house is 15 mins away from the airport
Opening: a pack of Quaker oats cookies. I have an addiction… addicted to junks – tbh, I don’t really eat food but junks! I feel incomplete without them stuffed down my mouth. I had to hide this biscuit under my jacket from my mum and Morris (the brother) so they don’t judge me. Please don’t judge me o! Somebody cannot eat in peace again. I know I’m supposed to start keto-ing again today but…junk happened – this biscuit is the type that literally calls your name when you walking down the biscuit isle. 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈
Giggling: at myself for hiding the biscuit under my jacket… shet! I can’t believe I actually did that 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 smh Tega smh!

Rushing: off, so I can start my day job. Perks of working from home!
