Life Adventures: January Recap, Favourites & Why I've Been MIA


The problem with being single-minded is the chronic inability to multitask.

Hey guys! It's been a month! As I type this, I'm slightly nervous to be blogging again for some strange reason but I'm back as one of the things I want to do this year is stop taking unnecessary breaks.

So what went down was this- At the beginning of this year, school unexpectedly resumed with full force and before I knew what was going on, I was buried under a pile of assignments and so on. My camera got spoilt last year (I mentioned this in this post) so the hassle of buying a new one was also part of the problem. Also, I've been working on starting a You Tube channel with the bestie (Seyi) which we'll be launching on the third of February (Friday). I'm actually hella excited.

So between You Tube and school being hectic, I was forced to choose or everything would fall apart. Everything has stabilized now so you'll be seeing me more.

That was basically my Janiuary, school and You Tube. We haven't posted anything yet so y'all can't subscribe but you can check out our Instagram @wearefriendsinfashion

To the faves!

-Favourite Fashion item: This bag I've had since I was 8.

-Favourite App: Preview app.

It's a mobile app that let's you plan your Instagram. Since Unum released their android version, I was excited but alas found it very disappointing. It had a lot of glitches that frustrated me. I luckily came across preview one day and I haven't looked back since.

The best part? It works offline too!

-Favourite Smell: I'm really tempted to type "fried egg" but I'll go with my current perfume. It's Splendor by Elizabeth Arden.

-Favourite Event: Because of the You Tube channel in progress, I got to spend quite a lot of time with Seyi this month.

Literally!                                                                                                    (I make the worst jokes)

-Favourite place: Any Cinema house works.

-Favourite Instagram page: @lynnkimdo is still bae.

-Favourite Music: All Majestic Casual artists on Soundcloud I think. I particularly like Hold me by Olmos.

-Favourite feeling: The feeling I got when things started playing according to plan.

And that's it people!

  11. The smell of fried egg is bae though, LOL. School can be like that and it's almost the same with having a full time job and blending everything together so because I cannot come and go and kill myself, I'm taking a break from blogging too. Happy new year!
