Be the Change You Wish to See

.....or something of that sort. Pretty sure Ghandi said that. And it's true. Ive been saying how bored I am with life and how I need a change. I'm not sure what that change will be, but part of what I've been wanting to do is get back to blogging. What do you think? Shall we give it another go?

Seven Things I Hope To Work Towards

I just celebrated a birthday this week. I turned 22. It’s crazy…I feel as though I have the whole world available to me, but at the same time, I feel the crushing need to “grow up”—be responsible, get my own place, venture on my own. And I suppose I shall have to soon enough, but right now, for this my 22nd year of life on this planet, my goal is to be a better version of myself. I want to be fitter, faster, wiser, friendlier, more creative and more focused. I want to set goals and I want to accomplish those goals. It’s really easy to speak on goals you hope to accomplish, but we tend to glaze over the long hard strenuous work—process—that is necessary to accomplish anything. I’ve always prided myself on being someone who is not afraid of hard work, in fact I welcome a challenge. And this year, I want to challenge myself beyond anything I’ve ever demanded.

1.I want to expand my professional and personal network.
2.I want to get in the best shape of my life.
3.I want to improve my Spanish.
4.I want to write a novel.
5.I want to grow in my faith and understand the Bible on a deeper level.
6.I want to learn how to cook my native foods. I’m from Nigeria and the only thing I really know how to make is rice and stew. A sad sad case for a Igbo chick. I want to learn how to make Onugbu soup Egusi, yam porridge A Nigerian soup, which I’ve never done before…either Okra, Onugbu, Vegetable or Egusi. Hell I want to cook them all.
7.I want to take my personal style to a level of sophisticated utility that it has never experienced.

I just wrote down the first things that came to my heart, and wouldn’t you know…seven is my lucky number J So for the next 365days I want to work towards accomplishing these 7 goals. Are these too many goals to work on in one year? Probably, but I always did believe in biting off more than you can chew….
In my upcoming posts I will be focusing on accomplishing all these things. I hope you will come along for the ride. ..I intend for it to be spectacular.

Have You Heard Of This?

Women playing football in lingerie?!! Wow this has to have set the women's movement back at least 10 years.

I've never seen this type of football, but I hear it comes on MTV2. I don't even watch real football, so there's no way in hell I could take this seriously, but seriously? SERIOUSLY!?

This is another shameless objectification of the female body. I'm truly disgusted.

Pretty in Pink

Loving all things pink right now. It all started with an obsession for the perfect pink lipstick. Right now I have about 3 shades of light pink lipstick and and 1 hot pink. But I'm still looking for a bright pink that's neither light nor hot. Does that even make any sense?

Something that looks semi like this:

I'm also a big fan of bright pinks paired with other bright colored hues like blue and and purple:
And of course pink and combo ever.

Maybe it's the Girlie-Girl in me, but pink is my favorite color and sometimes I have to be reminded of how versatile a color it is.
