Hey lovelies,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!

happy-new-year-2017-wallpaper-hd

I hope that your holidays were lit and so many good things happened. Anybody that knows me well knows I absolutely lovee the holiday season, especially Christmas. So you trust that it was awesome. I’m sorry that I was away for what seemed like forever to me, I needed stronger motivation and more inspiration. Guess what? We got this! LOL

Fast forward to what I’m sharing with you today… Few days ago, I had a conversation with my friend and he told me he was conscious of the speed at which the year is ageing already. I asked why and he said it just reminds him of things he planned to do in 2016 and did not achieve. Many of us are wearing the same shoes as my friend I suppose and are so conscious of how fast the year is ageing already we don’t even know how to go about achieving our set goals. While some of us also have made New Year Resolutions, we’re so overwhelmed as to how we’d go about achieving them. More

Breast Cancer Awareness.

Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s a huge blessing to have you read and share your thoughts on my posts :). How has your October been? Mine has been ‘stress-FULL’. There has been so much school work- assignments, projects – to handle, now my exams are here! I start this week so wish me luck.

Before I share what’s new, here’s a shout out to everyone who read, liked, left comments and shared the post on depression. I’m thankful! I got so much positive feedback  (see Depression: How to overcome it. if you haven’t read it yet). However, that has gingered me to share more real life issues with you. I really hope this interests you and you enjoy what’s to come. So stick around, there’s more great stuff ahead!

Fast forward to why my blog’s pink lol. This October, I’m thinking PINK. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and to support this, I have decided to write on it and personalize my blog too. The major, major reason why I’m involved in this is because a few years ago, I had a breast cancer scare (thankfully, it wasn’t). That event made me realize many ladies like myself are either unaware or choose to overlook the issue of Breast Cancer. Stats, according to breastcancercare.org.uk say that, the lifetime risk of a woman developing breast cancer is 1 in 8. Breastcancer.org says too that the younger you are, the lower the risk and the older you are, the higher the risk of breast cancer. While breast cancer in some cases is hereditary, other causal factors are beyond our control. More

In the Spirit of Independence

Hey!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s a new month already so Happy New Month to you. Here’s a short message to October:

“Dear October, please be good to whoever is reading this. Let this month bring joy, peace, good health, success, happiness to who’s reading this.”

Nigeria also celebrates her 56th Independence anniversary today. Happy Independence anniversary, fellow Nigerians!nigerians-620x330

I asked my roommates this morning what their thoughts on yet another independence anniversary. They did not say anything at first but just sighed deeply, almost at the same time. I was astonished. Why did they have to sigh deeply before answering? Don’t you sigh deeply when you’re tired of something or frustrated?

Nigeria is our very own. We cannot afford to give up on her. We are a great country regardless of what we are facing – recession, the battle against corruption, terrorism- all these would be over. And Nigeria will rise again. We would come out stronger and better.

Before this happens, Nigerians have to CHANGE. The change has to come from individuals, institutions, government. We all are contributing factors to Nigeria’s growth.

After some time, one of roommates said ‘God bless Nigeria’. Take a moment today and say a word of prayer for Nigeria. It could be God bless you, Nigeria. Just say a prayer. God hears us when we pray and He will hear us. Until then, let us enjoy being Nigerians and be proud.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIGERIA!!

Peace and love,

Aniee

Depression: How to overcome it.

Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I trust you’re doing great. Today’s blog post is quite sensitive and different from the ‘usual’ so…Enjoy!

Life is in phases and with each phase come challenges. Depression comes in when we allow these challenges overwhelm us. See, no challenge is insurmountable and mistakes are inevitable. Don’t beat yourself up over what’s happened. Life is short, I know that, but there’s still ample time to do what’s right!

A couple of weeks after my birthday, there were so many events that took place in my life all at once and it had me swimming in a pool of depression (thankful I didn’t drown in it) I’m not oblivious of the fact that people are going through tough times (this economy is more than enough hard time lol) however, there’s always a way out. A solution. A cure. A remedy. A therapy. Call it what you may.

So if you are depressed or you think that you are or about to, I’d be sharing symptoms then tips on how to come out of it (basically, what I did)

First, here are common symptoms that show you’re depressed (I feel like a Dr. right now so please call me Dr. Anie lol) More

Fashion Must-Haves for Summer 2016!

Hey darls,

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I trust you are perfect in the One who loves you. Happy New Month and Happy Belated Birthday to me! Yass, I became a year older on August the 2nd and it couldn’t have been more amazing 😀 (birthday post et pictures loading)

In today’s blog post I’d be sharing every fashionista’s must haves this summer (PS: The recipe of the finger-licking dish in M’s words is in the oven. Don’t think I’ve forgotten! 😉 )

To me and every other person I’m sure, summer time is fun time (And yes, there’s summer even in Nigeria lol). It’s a time to wear all the pastel colors from clothes to shoes, bags, accessories, beach wear…I could go on and on. However, I’d be sharing my favorite pieces which I consider fashion must-haves for you to rock this summer with!

Yay? Let’s roll!

1. A floral dress– Who doesn’t love flowers? Well, I know my mum does! With its bright colors and flowery designs, a floral dress is perfect to wear this summer and for that lunch date too! (sshh, i didn’t say anything)

2. An Ankara top -It’s no longer news that Ankara ti take over LOL. The Ankara fabric is now used for bags, shoes, sandals and even lingerie! I love the Ankara fabric. For that casual look, an Ankara top is always perfect on a jeans trouser with a nice pair of sandals or high heels! Need I say more?

Next up is:

3. The classic white shirt– So I’m not going to say much here. Just have a crisp classic white shirt in your wardrobe, it keeps you winning!

4. Wide legged denim trousers– Inspired from the 70’s, an off shoulder top and a floral top too would look great on a wide legged denim trousers.

The Academic Summit 7.0

Hey guys,

Thanks for stopping by the blog 🙂 I hope this week has been a blessed one for you. In today’s post I’d be sharing with you the press release of The Academic Summit 7.0, an event happening this August at the University of Lagos.

Here it is:

THE ACADEMIC SUMMIT 7.0

InspireChizzy 20160604_035419

It is common knowledge that the media sphere is now evolving (in fact is there anything that has not evolved). This trend of evolution is what The Academic summit (TAS) has successfully highlighted and tracked for the past six years.

At every juncture, TAS makes concerted efforts in making all Stakeholders in the media industry see how far the media has come, present realities and trends, and projections for the future.

TAS is a platform designed to inform and educate prospective media practitioners and students about prevalent issues in the media industry as it affects contemporary practice and trends in the media industry.

It seeks to converge top professionals from all media organizations spanning the entire length of the media sphere (Journalism, Public Relations, Advertising, Digital media, television/radio). These professionals are able to provide an opportunity for participants to seek direction in media careers.

Top Professionals such as Femi Adesina (Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity); Tolu Ogunlesi (Special Adviser to the President on New media); John Momoh, Biodun Shobanjo, Maupe Ogun, Morayo Afolabi-Brown, Yomi Badejo-Okunsanya etc.

This year’s edition promises to even be better as top speakers have been penciled to speak at the event. A panelist session with speakers from the diverse fields of mass communication will grace the occasion.

Workshop sessions that, without doubt, expose students to new territories will also be part of the event. Classes such as Copy writing, Art Direction, Digital marketing etc have already been planned with top speakers ready to impart knowledge to the teeming population that would grace the event.

It is evident that all is set for the biggest media event and be sure, after the event you would begin to see and explore the numerous uncharted opportunities that surround you.

The conversation continues on our Social media platforms… #TheConvergence

Next up on the blog, I’d be sharing a recipe of a finger licking dish prepared in Anie’s style 😉 Stick around amigos!

Peace, love and chocolate,
