2017: An Opportunity For New Beginnings

A green leaf

I have never been fond of making new year resolutions not because I think its overated but because of the fact that after few weeks reality sets in and you are back to your old self which is an epic fail and that my friend is not an improvement to one's life, if you keep living the same life yearly without a positive change then you are likely to fail at one point.

There is nothing wrong in making these resolutions even if we fail to keep them, but the good news is that each year is an opportunity for a new beginning and a fresh start. While I drop a list of new resolutions which will be beneficial to us all, I will also try my best to stick to these goals and keep records of the ones I achieved and their progress. Now, I know am a little bit late with this list but we are just a month late and its not too late to go through with it. So, my friends, here is to a fresh start.

  1. Say no to procrastination: first of all, for us to achieve this resolution we need to drop this bad habit that stops us from achieving our goals.
  2. Increase your intake of water for healthier system.
  3. Read more books to gain knowledge on lots of topics.
  4. If you find joy in the little things you do and learn to reduce stress in your life, you will find yourself being contented and happier with your life.
  5. Believing and loving yourself more gives the opportunity to forgive oneself and those who hurt you, don't hold a grudge.
  6. Live an organized and tidier life, learn to declutter, get rid of unwanted properties.
  7. Start saving money and get out of debt, this is crucial.
  8. Reduce intake of sugar, it is very dangerous to one's health.
  9. Get over your ex, stop obsessing about them and put that energy into something positive like learning a skill, adopting a dog or getting a hobby.
  10. Be more responsible, own up to your mistakes, learn to think before making a decision which is a sign of maturity.
  11. Stop making promises you can't keep.
  12. Stop biting your nails, its childish. (Am really guilty of this)
  13. Eat healthy, reduce intake of junk food or don't eat at all.
  14. Live a healthy and neater lifestyle, bathe twice daily, wear clean clothes, shave, smell nice and take good care of your health, make sure to see a doctor once you feel different and stop self treatment or medication.
  15. Get more spiritual and find a deeper connection with your creator.
  16. Drop that negative energy and learn to be positive about life.
  17. Let us let go of getting mad so easily, complaining about every little thing and not thinking before talking.
  18. Stop over thinking things, learn to live with the flow of life and what it has to offer.
  19. Learn to use nice words, make an impact in people's life with your words, advice and kind gestures you won't be forgotten for it.
  20. Give yourself time and take care of yourself, don't over work yourself.
  21. We all know ourselves, write down a list of your good and bad side then work on that bad side cos you never know what problem it could get you into.
I can't stress how important these goals are, I know I didn't write them all so you can add to your list if you have more. Let's try to stick to these resolutions for a step to a better life. Happy New Year. 


  1. Nice one...will try to keep them

  2. These are good goals. I am working on being healthier.

Review: Virony Sanitary Pad

I used Virony for the first time yesterday and I ain't looking back. Few weeks ago, my friends told me about Virony pad which I was scared to get at first because of my fear of switching sanitary pads but the reviews and praises I got about it made me change my mind. Well, here I am too, dropping my praises about Virony.  Product Name: Virony Smart Lady Pad Company Promises Absorbs 60% faster Extended wings to prevent leak My Experiences  I love the feminine look and packaging, the fact that the pack can be reused as a makeup or storage bag makes me love it even more. Comes with 30 pieces in a pack (18 days, 7 nights and 5 pant liners) you will notice the difference in sizes.  It has a light and dry feel, no bulge or feels heavy when being worn and there is this minty feeling you experience down there ☻ It is perfect for heavy and light flows and does not leak or tear. My friends who experiences rashes with previous sanitary products swore that they did

Empty State Design - Meaning & Importance.

Empty State - Mobile Version Empty states are what users see when there is no information displayed on the mobile or web screen. In summary, these are screens with little or no content on them depending on the situation, and examples of the situations are: 404 errors  Empty email inboxes  Empty checkout cart  Connection issues  The user has only just signed up Getting no results when you make searches  There are other situations that can also be placed as empty states but the most important thing is for these pages to be as engaging as possible.  Empty states are very important in UX Design but are often overlooked by designers that find them as non-essential screens that do not need attention. Designing an empty state is very useful to user experience and adds great value to products and services.    Empty State - Web Version As a designer, creating empty states is a great opportunity to let the users know what is happening, why it’s happening, and what to do about it, this helps to d

Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

SHADE: 60 Caramel Getting the right foundation for my skin has always been a problem for me, it’s been either fake products which I talked about on this post  or the products don’t meet my needs. I hade to make an intense search online and found a video from a makeup blogger who mentioned that the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse was her favorite foundation for oily skin. I eventually got this foundation and here is a review of my experience using it.  The Company Information & Promises •  SPF 15 • Matte Perfect Foundation  • Light Weight Feel  My Experiences •  Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is a light weight foundation with a light to medium coverage • It blends in easily easily and smoothly. • It gives a matte finish but lasted for only about 2-3 hours for me so I had to repowder throughout the day. • It had white undertones after I apply it and I had to buy the Mary Kay Timewise to blend with it whenever I use. • I couldn’t wear it on hot or sunny days
