Two Thousand And Fourteen

So this right here is my first blog post this new year and the first of many more to come. I didn't have new year resolutions in 2013 and I don't think I'm going to have any this year. I've had goals each month and each week of the passed year and if I was to do anything some way related to making new year's resolutions then I'd carry over the same habit into the new year. Maybe some of the same short term goals from last year and a few new ones but most of my long term goals have remained the same. I don't see why we should wait till the first of the year to make a firm decision to do or not to do something, it's never really made sense to me. Although I can see why people use the opportunity to do so, seeing the new year as a clean slate and changing things that need to be changed especially if you find it difficult to make changes through the year, but I find that I just don't like the idea the same way I just don't fancy fruit cake. Never have never will. I think we should all try to be better continuously rather than waiting a whole year to set goals and achieve them, that's what to-do lists are for and why deadlines are made.
This year I definitely want to keep regulating my spending, I think I've done a good job so far. It means I'll repeat outfits a lot but it also challenges me to recreate new outfits from the clothes I already have and have a tailor make something new or visiting my mum/sister's closet! Speaking of tailors, I'm looking for a good tailor with good prices here in Lagos! Home service would be asking too much nice as well! Lol
I definitely need more shoes, the staple black sandals and some other basic shoes and some flamboyant/fancy statement shoes as well. Think Sophia Webster, that's just art on feet! But the heels are really something else, way too thin for me. I've just realized I only wear 2% of my entire boring shoe collection mostly because of the heel height as well, I love my kitten heel, I'm in love with comfort!
I want to keep trying more trends, especially print on print! I haven't quite mastered the all white look but it's in the works. One trend I won't get tired of is a high waist bottom worn with a crop top, Love it! Can't get enough of it! Need more of it! I love my high waist pencil skirts and skater skirts a well. Another trend I NEED to get on is the new way of wearing iro and buba like a twist front dress. A couple of Nigerian designers have done their variation of it like Tiffany Amber, Eclectic by Sasha, Ejiro Amos Tafiri to name a few.
Thinking of working on a new header as well. I love the simplicity of what I have there now, but If you've noticed anything from visiting my blog it's that when it comes to headers I like to change things up a lot bit. Funny thing is I always come back to this same basic header with just black text on white background and no pictures! I'll keep you updated if anything comes up but for now let's enjoy simplicity.
In other none fashion/blog related news, I can't wait to get this NYSC year over and done with! Eh! This thing is just stressful and highly confusing, not to mention totally unnecessary.

Just thought I'd let you guys know a few of my plans this year, of course not all of them but I'm still believing God for progress in certain areas of my life as well, which include my personal relationship with God, it's a worthwhile journey and it never ends! Hope everyone enjoyed their new year celebration cuz I did, the 1st is also my dad's birthday but I ended up with a bit of food poisoning. I didn't eat much but I guess the little I ate got my tummy real upset! But I'm better now.
Have a great week ahead x
