As i was sorting out my favorite things from June,I noticed they were actually small things that actually made me so happy like my ball point pen and cheap matte lipsticks. Here are some beautiful music, videos and things that i got to fall in love with in June ;
Music & Videos :
This video inspired me so much and also if you are free you should watch videos from his channel they can inspire you and also motivate you to read more.For some reason despite the song being oh so beautiful , i loved the video too though some might find it provocative. I love love looooove Økuntakinte , his aesthetic and feels is so beautiful and pleasing, I love the video, the song and the message behind it.
Currently reading Sushi for beginners by Marian Keyes , i will tell you more about it when i am done but i love it and it talks about things that i am currently working on, so that is great.
I’m also preparing myself to read any book by Maya Angelou. Any recommendations?
What are you currently reading ?
QUOTES / WORDS :
Our first job in life as women is to get to know ourselves. – Michelle Obama
I’ve always been the type of person who doesn’t have to have a specific thing in life in order to function but when I lost my beautiful black ball point pen that I use to write with on all my notebooks and diaries I think i had a mini- depression since I couldn’t function well with just any pen I kept going to stationaries to ask for a good ball point pen for a good week or two and I never actually got one until two weeks ago when I sent someone at my dads office to town and he got me this one. I could finally feel something us right with my life again and maybe i overreacted but I just think me using a good ballpoint pen to write down on my note books makes me happy and actually motivates me to work on the things I write down.
I got it as a present from my best friend last month and I only started using it well this month. I love neutral colors and grey is one of my favorite colors as of late and with any bag I used this *keychain with it just automatically made the bag look 10 times better.
These two colors ( red and one slightly burgundy) are my favorite lipsticks at the moment since they have this beautiful smooth feel when applying it on your lips and the smooth and matte feel design of the lipstick cover. They’re actually very cheap (5000 tshs) plus I’m not exactly sure they’re “very safe” approved lipstick because the price is so low but for now I’m going to use this until when I can afford and actually have access to lipsticks like color pop and so on since i really hate waiting for some goods to get here when shopping online , plus the charges for shipping and TAX is ridiculous.
GrapeFruit Body Lotion
I rarely receive presents but when my friend marie ** surprised me with this lotion and it’s shower gel ( not pictured ) I felt like i was getting oh so spoiled and loved.I’ve been using that lotion for almost two months now , it’s so nice and has this fresh smell of sweet mandarine and grapefruit that leaves your skin looking smooth and delicious.Also I’m shamelessly showing off my ***nails that I loved so much.
I have given up on buying heels for now ( currently addicted to oxfords and flats ) but these babies were an exception since they were cheap and I’ve been looking for them everywhere for days and since I needed them it was only right to get them plus at 15,000 tshs who wouldn’t? ( i bought them at mwenge for anyone who is interested to know prices of thrift pieces there) Now that i have crossed them off my list, next thing is some beautiful brogues and platforms that i have been eyeing for a while now
What are some of your favourite things from June ? What are you looking forward to this July?
* I kind of destroyed my key chain last week and i am sad about it more than i should be.
** My friend Marie was to surprise me with the things but i kind of went ahead and spoilt my own surprise by going to pick it up with her. lol
*** I broke my one week old nails so i decided to remove all of them (very heartbroken by it ) and i am currently thinking maybe i should try GEL for a change , after all, i have heard its a good alternative especially since i am trying to grow out my nails.
Well that was a long post… I am in Arusha and it so cold and whilst i love me some cold weather which is also good for my skin , i just wish i got the memo early on.
Happy July Lovers. Don’t Forget to work hard and love yourself fully.
