* Takes deep breathe*, *clears throat * I saw this template first on PAMELA IFENEME‘s blog, who got it from SHARON MUNDIA‘s blog, please I have to take a pause here… Sharon found this template on SYDNEY POULTON‘s blog , its a long chain I know but I thought it would be interesting to include it on my blog once or twice a year or even whenever I feel like living in the moment.

Making: more friends, you can never have too many friends and I feel like the more open and positive minded you are the more people want to be your friend.

Eating: Out , I know it’s not a good habit but recently I lost all interest in cooking, I think it’s a phase I’ll soon get over. I’ve also gotten into the habit of eating breakfast. Usually, I forget to eat in the morning most times especially when I’m working but now I make sure I eat something on my way to work or have breakfast delivered to me while I work. Like they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Drinking: more water than I use too, trust me that’s a lot of water ? cause I like water. Water is almost always the first thing I take into my body when I wake up… there’s always a bottle of water by my bedside before I go to bed, I mean you can’t “fast” for almost 9hours or even more and not want to drink water first thing in the morning.

Reading: TALENT IS OVERRATED by GEOFF COLVIN,  I’m not even going to lie to you I only started reading this book today even though I’ve had it for a while. If you are a young entrepreneur like myself  then I recommend this book.

Wanting: so much to Travel, I’ve never been the type to want to leave my comfort zone but recently I’ve been feeling the need to leave and go somewhere I’ve never been. I’d definitely be visiting new countries and states in the coming year, excited about it.

Playing: more gospel music than ever, if you’d agree with me gospel music has a way of keeping you calm and peaceful and whenever I’m feeling emotional or troubled , Hillsong worship to the rescue.

Wasting: No time to take actions, once I think I need to do something I just do, most times I don’t even think, this can be really bad sometimes but most times it works In my favour.

Creating : more makeup looks for my YouTube channel in the coming year, seat tight and watch the space.

Wishing: I can turn back the hands of time, lol.

Enjoying: Nigerian music

Loving: the weather, so it’s what Nigerians call “harmattan” season and during this period the weather is usually really dry, foggy, cold in the evenings and mornings and let me not leave out the dust.

You’d think there’s everything wrong with all of these things right? Now this weather for me makes it the best time to go ham on skincare regimen and for the ladies we try to stay as clean as possible, we moisturize more because nobody wants ashy skin, all of these things together with the weather in turn makes our  my skin look flawless.

Hoping: I become very consistent with blogging and releasing YouTube videos because that’s the plan.

Marveling: At how positive I’m getting by the day.

Smelling: every damn thing it’s almost as if my Sense of smell heightened a 100 times.

Wearing: A shirt dress I got last year from Mango, if you know me well enough you’d know I love outfits from mango, I use to have this friend that loved mango too and we’d always go into the store whenever we were at the mall, it sort of became something we had in common.

Following: Nigerian music more than I ever use to, there’s been so many new amazing songs from different Nigerian acts, this year has been so lit when it comes to music and I have a few I’m in love with.

Noticing: that I have quite a number of supporters and I truly appreciate all of them most Especially my closest friends, I love you guys.

Knowing: that 2017 is going to be an amazing year recession or not.

Feeling: Grateful for love, peace, good health of the mind and body, great support system, Grace and happiness!!!

Bookmarking: more videos on how to edit Makeup tutorials and photos.

Opening: up more than I ever have.

Giggling: at every baby I see in public, I love kids.

Feeling: like I’m about to say more than you can take In right now so I’m just going to go, I’ll tell you more when next we do this!!!

Happy New Years in advance!!!

    Totally get “wasting no time to take actions”, I am such a procrastinator! Once I think something now, I’ll do. Ps, I think I will get back on taking stock on, it’s such a fun addition. Cheers to 2017.
