Hey there. How are you? So the first half of the month is now behind us and the next half has just begun and I hope you are on the right track to achieving the goals you set out at the beginning of the year. As the title of the post suggests, I am so excited today because IT’S MY BLOG’S BIRTHDAY!!!! Same day last year I wrote my first post (which you can read here) and I can remember how ecstatic I was when I shared it and got some remarkable feedback and love from all of you. Since then, my blogging journey has been nothing short of beautiful. And all I can say is THANK YOU!!!! I am grateful for the few minutes you set aside each week just to read my posts and even more appreciative for those who always like, leave comments and even share my posts with friends on facebook, twitter, instagram and even pinterest . The following has grown significantly over the few months and all I can say is THANK YOU and may God continue to bless you all.
As any journey goes, it is always important to pish the pause button, inhale, exhale and also self evaluate so as to see where you from, where are at presently and where you see yourself in the future. And with the blog I would like to start doing so by documenting this in the form of taking stock every first day of the month. So below is my first ever taking stock post. Enjoy and have a blessed month.
Making : A list of things that I need to achieve in July
Cooking : Nothing at the moment
Reading : Her Roots by J. J. Lanji Ouko for the second time. If you have not read it you need to. It is funny, relatable for those in their 20’s (especially if you live in Nairobi) and most of all inspiring. It will leave you wanting more
Wanting : A paying part time job at the moment…well…more like I need one
Playing : I got the keys by Dj Khaled ft Jay Z and Future
Wasting : No time researching for my project
Creating : Exciting content to share with you in the coming months. So invite more friends to follow and keep up with the website
Wishing : I knew what the future holds
Enjoying : Nikki and Jamie’s second last video. I am OBSESSED with them. They are super cute and AVA their daughter is the epitome of adorable. If you do not follow them, you need to.
Wondering :What the writer of game of thrones is thinking right about now
Loving : Tabitha Tongoi of cravingyellow.com. Her blog just gives me life and sunshine. I do not know her personally but I believe we were friends in another lifetime because I relate with her so much
Hoping :To be finished with my project in a month and a half
Marveling :At these beauties I just pinned on my pinterest
Smelling : Of coconut oil because I just moisturised my hair
Wearing : My yellow kikoy pants and an oversized zebra printed cardigan cause I’m just chilling
Following : Simplycyn on instagram. Her pictures are so BOMB and she inspires me to be more adventurous.
Noticing : That my hair has grown so much of late.
Thinking : About my handsome boyfriend and how I can’t wait to see him later
Feeling : Blessed that God has walked with me since day one and he continues to each and everyday
Bookmarking : Nothing at the moment
Opening : My water bottle
Giggling : As I reminisce last night’s shenanigans with my family
Feeling :Extremely grateful for all of you that keep coming back to the blog each and every week. You make me extremely happy with your comments and likes
