Taking Stock: Vol 1. 2017

Hi guys! I was reading a friend's blog, and I really liked her 'taking stock' posts. So, I've adopted it as a way of summarizing what's new with me. You can expect one of these every 3-4 months.

Without wasting any more time, lets get right to it🙂

Making - plans for a new venture. If you saw my post on IG I promised to tell you something about it. So, it's in the consumer goods industry and will be handmade. Can you guess what it is ?

Cooking - pancakes and scrambled eggs 🍳

Drinking - water, green tea, Carlo Rossi and lucozade boost (the first sip always reminds me of childhood and I love it every single time). During this shoot I also drank the most expensive bottle of sprite ever at N1000 for 35cl. Shout out to the bar at Radisson Blu, exploiting customers and blaming it on the recession 😞​

Reading - Men are from mars, Women are from venus: book of days. It has 365 inspirations to enrich your relationship 👀

Wanting - to take a trip somewhere in Africa within the next few months. Ghana or Senegal would be ideal.

Playing - my 'ride along' playlist while driving. It has artists like Ozzy B/Santi (find them on soundcloud), Mr.Eazi, Runtown and ofcourse Wizkid with Daddy Yo.

Wasting- time! and it's so painful but I don't know how to stop. I haven't started working yet and so I have quite a bit of free time. Instead of spending it wisely on working out, learning a new skill or the list of other productive things I actually have to do, I've just been lazying around in bed, watching movies and American Dad hahah On that note, here are some movies I would recommend:

*the accountant

*love and happiness

*the brothers grimsby"

Sewing - nothing for now. My tailor kinda messed me up during the holiday season. I gave her 3 different outfits to sew and she only made 1. It was really unlike me, but when I found out what happened, I just went and collected the rest of my materials, paid her for the one she sewed, and looked through my closet for something old to wear 😞. I didn't have the energy to complain and I still don't have the energy to look for a new tailor.

Bookmarking -random blog pages

Enjoying- making my own schedule.

Liking - learning how to create flatlay images. Here's an example of one I took. I think i'm going to make it a thing. I love how there are endless possibilities and items you can turn into flatlays. Stay tuned and follow me on IG @chinjunwankwo to see more.

Wishing - I could live in NY while running my small business in Nigeria and being the daughter that my parents want (i.e. one that lives not more than 10 mins away) 🙄

Loving - my boyfriend 💞 He's so annoying and supportive at the same time.

Opening - Pinterest and Houzz a lot more than usual

Hoping - that 2017 will be all that I expect to be and more. By the end of the year I want to have a fully functional business, be more established in the blogging world and have found the balance between being a caring girlfriend and remaining autonomous in my relationship 😌

Marveling - at God and the times he has chosen to manifest His presence in my life. Hoping that I'll have a lot more of such experiences in 2017.

Needing - my freedom and my parents to understand that I'm not 10 anymore. Also needing to be more present on a daily basis and to learn how to focus on the positives.

Smelling - Signorina by Ferragamo. I've been in love with this fragrance since I found it last spring.

Feeling - anxious...

Thinking -of a way to turn anxiety into excitement/motivation 😏. Also thinking of ways to make the blog more interactive and engaging. Leave ideas in the comments section!

Noticing - that a lot of the cliches about life are true. i.e. life is what you make it ...

Wearing - wigs, now that I'm on a journey to grow my natural hair. I did the big chop in 2012 and I currently have about 8-10in of growth. It really should be more than that but I dyed my hair a couple of times and that obviously wasn't a good idea for length retention.

So that's it guys, I hope you enjoyed catching up with me! Until next time 💋
