Highlights From The Lady Blooming Hangout, Photos & Shout-Outs!

Hey guys,

Remember The Lady Blooming? Yeah. Some of you already saw this on my social media, but just in case you didn’t – well, over the weekend, we finally, finally met for our very first hangout. Phew! I say finally, because we, scratch that, I particularly stalled on holding the hangout for such a long time, and we still might have not held it had Orejesu Ajayi & Omolara Oseni, not reminded and pushed me. Thankfully, it’s done now and I can breathe again. Read more

Thank you, guys! Read more

What To-Do When You’re Feeling Down {+My Gratitude List!}

This morning, I left my house with a very heavy heart. For good reasons, I won’t give you guys the full details of what happened but it involved someone very, very, close to me and a realization that things might not just be as fine as I’ve assumed they are. It felt like I had been living an illusion all along, simply because I wasn’t the one putting food on my table and all of a sudden, someone flashed reality before me and it wasn’t pretty. So, through the ride to work, I was very sad. I wanted to smile, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t cry either. On the outside, I was just numb but inside, in my mind, a lot of things were going on. Read more
