It only makes sense to make sunflower my favorite color! I hope you’re not getting tired of my yellow fever. I’m not sure how much of this is true, but there’s something about yellow and joy. Not sure if it because of its brightness that indirectly brightens a person’s countenance. One thing I’ve gotten from folks is that my page tends to bring a smile to their face when strolling through. So maybe there is some truth to it. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Maybe orange or black does it for you as well. Thanks for following and appreciating my yellow obsession. Happy Friday!
Hi my name is Oluomachi. I had to sound it out because It’s a great time to be Nigerian in America. Have you guys seen the list of artist on @beyonce new @lionking album? Have you checked out the list? Naija definitely taking over! @teknoofficial @burnaboygram @wizkidayo @tiwasavage @mreazi @yemialade Just to nams a few😄
You know how people call themselves both intro and extroverts? I think that’s how I am with being left and right brained. I feel like I’m in a constant fight with both sides trying to be dominate and trying to figure out how to balance and function equally with both sides. I think I started off as a right brain because I’ve always been creative from birth. I was drawing at 5 and can pick up other forms of art easily. But growing up in a Nigerian home and being a Christian molded me more into a left. So I think I am a functioning right brain born a left brain? There’s days my right is louder and days my left decides to take charge. These are the type of random thoughts that goes through my head. One thing tho, is no matter how much I’ve tried to silent my creative side or people have tried to box me in, it still will creep out. Even in IT, most of them know I’m different or “don’t belong” because I can’t hide who I am. Moral of the story if you made it to the end of this rant? Let yourself shine! Happy Friday🤗 Top: by yours truly Shoe: @amazonfashion Short: Vintage
#GIVEAWAY ! Swipe to find out😄 So, I’ve been trying to find the best way to whiten my teeth. Wanted to get my dentist to do it but was not ready for the cost. Some of the other options I saw seemed complicated. When @smilebrilliant sent this package to me I was a little reluctant to start because I felt it was going to be hard to setup. Honestly ended up not being as complicated. The molding direction and everything was super easy. And the tray fits like a glove. Smile brilliant is doing a COUPON & GIVEAWAY: Coupon is 15% off coupon code: keepingitoly15 Giveaway is for a $149 Smile Brilliant credit This is so easy to use. Link in bio to enter.
Tell me why I just found out Starbucks has other caffeine items that are not coffee based. I’ve never been a @starbucks person because I didn’t realize there were other options. I hope this doesn’t come off ignorant. Being a big hibiscus fan, I was super excited when I found out about their Very Berry hibiscus refresher. You will never find my apartment empty of hibiscus leaves. There are so many health benefits packed in it. Starbucks is slowly wining me over with this one. Especially on a raining day like this when I’m super tired and all I want to do is go back home and sleep.
Happy Sunday! What have been the highlight of your weekend so far? Not sure if I can call staying home and editing client videos as highlight but that was mine. Got some tasks checked off my today list😅 hooray for productivity🙌🏾
Products are ready! I’m so proud of these and what it’s done for my skin and excited to share it with everyone. Hope your holiday was well spent. It’s always a great time when I link up with my friends. Regardless of what we are doing, we find a way to make the best of it and enjoy each other’s company. Been meaning to share this but life and Instagram shutdown keep getting in the way. Checkout the site and share your thoughts with me. Will love to know what you think😊
Knowing what it’s like to live in two countries, you get to appreciate what each has to offer. With everything we are facing at the moment, it’s still an honor to live in a place where I’ve been on the receiving end of opportunities that will not have been readily available if I was still in Nigeria. Still thankful to be a citizen of this nation and the many opportunities and benefits it has given me. Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy, eat and be merry💙
ANNOUNCEMENT! Restaurant opening soon! There’s a running joke I’m constantly looking for business opportunities, or try to turn everything into a business. NOT TRUE. But I am a firm believer in letting your skill gift, talent, passion make income for you,I mean, it’s literally in the Bible that our gift will make way for us. We are now officially on the second half of the year. And a good time for a goal check, first half of the year for me was focused on launching my skincare line, and will love to use the second half to focus on another goal of mine. From how this year has been going, I have been seeing the power of writing out your goals and adding timelines makes a big difference in attaining it. It’s interesting saying this as a project manager because I should be used to it. But applying things to your life is definitely different from doing a job. Happy Monday, happy new month! Let’s make this week count and even better the other half of the year.
Summer days are the best! It’s like a long never ending recess, especially on weekends. People are more willing to come out to play. You have the best events happening. I can’t believe I’m attending an ice cream festival today. That definitely will never happen in winter! Make the best of today, open up the window and smell the roses. Take a walk and see what’s around you. Let’s leave @netflix alone today and explore the world around us.
This week was such an interesting one. Got bitten by some random bug that sucked my energy and made it so hard to stay on my game. But I’m super grateful to have made it through this week. Sickness to me is always a little reminder that I’m human and need to make sure as I’m pushing myself, I’m also resting and giving myself breaks. Happy Friday and May the odds be in our favor this weekend!🧡
Smile! No one can control your joy and peace when it’s coming from above.
Jumping into Monday like✨
Happy Friday! Got any plans for the weekend? Summer weekends are so busy, I get happy sometimes when I get to sit home and be productive. Aside from my Sunday shoots, I finally get to relax and clean my place up. And complete my @olynaturals website and video.
If you were given the opportunity to go back in time and redo your past mistakes, would you take it? Like not date the guy who treated you like crap or do a different major instead of what you graduated with. If you look at yourself and are happy with who you are presently, then even your bad times and mistakes contributed to it. They contributed to shaping you unto the person you are today. When I start wishing for. Different scenario, I remind myself everything that has happened so far in my life brought me to where I am today. And for that I am grateful. Grateful for my upbringing, my family, past relationships, good and bad friends, jobs I hated and courses that challenged me so much, I wish I hadn’t taken them.
Unpopular opinion: Thank God it’s Monday! Let’s make this week a great one. Started last week with no energy. Switching it up this week. Came back to Delaware before midnight, drank my detox tea this morning and off to a great start. Speaking and sending some positive vibes to the rest of the week. Let’s get it!
Happy Friday! Swipe to check out what I’ve been up to with @olynaturals When I first went natural, I got sucked up into buying so many products trying to figure out what worked for me. After. While I gave up and started doing my own research and learning about natural oils and products. I will blend and mix and go back to the board to see what made sense. I was also the type that didn’t like doing too much when it came to my hair. I figured why not make something that I can use for both. This went over to just learning more and seeing what worked for both my hair and skin...(work smart, not hard😜) With my skin, I was not blessed with a flawless skin and had to work to keep it acne clean. I’ve tried so many products and have had appointments with dermatologist. I’ve tried different products, which tho it had some good things, will still contribute to breaking my skin out due to its thickness. It will clog it. I went on to learn more and focus on what works and less of what will clog up my skin. I’m happy to say it was a success! And haven’t used any other moisturizer since. Swipe to check out some of the products! My site is launching soon to try out the products. So far have heard nothing but good reviews of those who’s tried it out. Please checkout the page and follow or subscribe to site. Will love the support and know you will love the products also! @olynaturals
Pursue what makes you happy and don’t be apologetic about it. Yesterday one of my coworkers shared with me her regrets on putting in 25 years of her life making another man rich. She encouraged me to not waste my talent on 9/5 and make sure that I am also investing in myself. This meant so much to me because I really do get discouraged trying to pursue what I love and make time to invest in myself. I know I’m not the only one that needs to hear this. So make time for what you love, invest in yourself, your talent, skills and interest. You don’t need to quit your day job, but make sure you are also putting in time on you as you’re making another man richer. - - - - - - - - - - #hairinspiration #blkcreatives #blackgirlswhoblog #naijababe #portrait #streetphotography #style #springstyle #naturalgirls #lifestyleblogger #melanin #love #springfashion #springlooks #travel #wanderlust #melaninpoppin #naijagirl #blackbloggers #l4l #springstyle #unconditionedroots #kinkycurly #fashionbombdaily #thecutlife #teamnatural_ #naturalhairloves #darkskinwomen #yellowmustardgang #browngirlbloggers
