REFLECTIONS: THREE POSITIVE CHANGES I’VE MADE THIS YEAR

"LIFESTYLE, Slider, STYLE"

REFLECTIONS It's been almost a month since I made a post. Almost a month till the year ends.  And it's been six months since dearsalmah went live, I'm grateful for all the friends, readers and bloggers that have stuck with me. Reflections... Something happened in this month of November that I still don't fully understand.. I woke up, I went to work and hung out with friends, I laughed and loved and yet somehow my life was on a stand still. I was awake yet I was asleep. So my work suffered, my business suffered, my blog suffered, and my relationship suffered. Alhamdullilah, this phase didn't last too long. I think it was my systems natural way of having an automatic reboot. A reboot I needed and refused to initiate, my system forced on…

The tittle of this post is meant to come off as sarcastic but I think I failed. During my blogcation, I made it a point to do stuffs and visit places I'd never been in Abuja before. At the top of my list was the zoo in Abuja. It seemed everyone I know had been. Only me. Hai! I don't even know how comes I was always passing it. My mom told me I would love it, "you'd see giraffes and antelopes and a tortoise as big as a table" I was ecstatic! I could not wait to go. When I told my friends I'd be going and asked if they would like to come with, they tried to cramp my style saying things like "oh, that place is dead, there is nothing there" I…

My Blogger experience Friendship in your community I've been in the blogging industry for just a little over a year now. My experience all this while has varied from time to time. From not having a clue as to what I was doing to feeling like a total fraud whenever I say I'm a blogger, to finally (thankfully) been comfortable and even feeling like part of the community. So what changed? How did I go from feeling like a fraud to having a spot and a voice in the community?  Friendship. I can honestly say making friends have been the number one reason I am where I am today. A more confident blogger, a more informed blogger and a happier blogger in general. Life as a 20-something year old woman living in Abuja can very…

Lifestyle blog post It's no secret to my blog readers that I love the corset trend. I mean how can I not? I've styled it on the blog before in this post Here. And you can trust that I will be styling it again pretty soon. Why do I love the corset trend? Simple. It's the one way I can wear something resembling an underwear out without actually wearing an underwear out. Plus it's so sexy. Anyway, I finally put my blog together. Did some random shit, got myself a blog planner, de-cluttered the blog. I also did some maintenance, some testing, and got a new expensive premium theme (I hope y'all like it o) PS: Check out the desktop version. Now I'm ready to roll (Lord, please help me be consistent)  I have…
