IT’s HOT PINK… BELIEVE ME

Category : Motivation

When people don’t share your vision or get excited when you talk about your ideas it’s ok in fact it’s more than okay because it only means there is less people fighting for that ‘thing’ you want. Don’t be disheartened always remember their opinion is their business not yours. stop wasting time convincing them or making them understand but focus on making the dream a reality and when it all becomes ‘real’ sit back and watch the unbelievers believe…

STAY HUNGRY STAY FOOLISH

Category : Motivation

As much as being content with life is a good thing it can have a downside in that it denies you your full potential as it can lead to comfort zones and we all know how bad comfort zones are. They take away the drive and the urge to change or improve oneself.

In 2005 the late Steve Jobs closed his speech at Stanford University graduation ceremony with a quote from Whole Earth Catalogue “Stay Hungry… Stay Foolish” which can be translated to being eager to acquire more and ready to try new things. Easier said than done right? Actually no… Understandably as we grow older we become inundated with responsibilities and bills, making it difficult and expensive to study full time, but fear not because websites such as the ones listed below have a good selection of discounted and sometimes free online courses which allow flexibility and are even accessible on the go from handheld devices. Once you complete the course you can gain experience being an Intern or doing voluntary work through organisations such as Voluntary Action a charity organisation that connects volunteers and businesses. So step out of your comfort zone…

MADE IN AFRICA

Category : Motivation

 

…Rebranded In Europe

Leaving home and moving to another country/continent has got to be one of the hardest things ever given the multitude of things to adjust to…. the change in weather, the culture shock, the food… loneliness! The list just goes on and on! There are usually two main outcomes… the pressure of being so far away from home will either break you or make you stronger. In my case it was the latter. More like do or die. Hard at first but in the end it does pay off. Having come such a long way the last thing one could ever do is backtrack so making that decision to stay on permanently wasn’t hard at all and as I slowly find myself integrating into this new culture and lifestyle I also find myself appreciating everything that relates to my being African more and more. I like to think of it as re-branding oneself, still the same product/person with the same roots, values etc but functioning under a different image, all for the better off course.

I see this a lot within Fashion. Inspiration comes from all over and being African I love how the African fabric and accessories are being incorporated within fashion the world over. The Kente fabric has got to be one of my favourite fabric. The print! and the fusion of colour just brightens up the mood. This fabric will definitely be part of my autumn /winter essentials because this English winter can be so dull and drag on forever.
