Hello 2018 | 5 Unconventional New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year !!!

If you read my 2017 Review post, you would know that I had a pretty good year and I have so many expectations for 2018, the only way from here on is up! I sat to write my regular New Year’s resolution for 2018 that featured appearances from my favorites; lose weight, save more, e.t.c. After thinking for a while, I was able to narrow my list to these unconventional goals excluding my main goals and decided to share.

1.) Be More Grateful

Towards the end of last year, I made a conscious decision to live a life filled with gratitude and as a first step towards to that, I purchased the Gratitude Journal from HeartsAndFrames. It’s really easy to lose track of the small blessings and get dragged under by this thing called life but I have something to turn back to, count my blessings and have a more positive outlook.

Bible Devotional

2.) Start and Finish Devotionals

For nearly three years, I relied on You Version for my daily devotionals. In that time, I found it hard to remain consistent even with daily reminders. I got the hard copy version of my  church’s yearly devotional and it has a permanent place near my pillow so I’m constantly reminded to read it, hopefully this strategy works for me.

3.) Cut My Hair

I’ve been having this strong urge to cut my hair. At first, I thought it was just one of those feelings that would pass but 8 months in and it’s still there. I have a gallery filled with hair cut inspo from baldies to . I’m not quite sure I’ve figured out the one to go with but I’m definitely cutting my hair this year and that’s that.

Piggy bank, financial smartness

4.) Be Financially Smart

I am the queen of impulsive spending. I can literally get up, decide on the spot to go have drinks or lunch somewhere and give myself 5 reasons why I deserve the treat even when I know I don’t. Hopefully, that would change this year. I’m determined to start taking this money management and investing thing seriously, I entered the year armed with a few investment options thanks to this video by Yewande of SheLovesTheFinerThings.

5.) Build and Maintain Good Relationships

This one is not really unconventional and it has featured in most of my new year resolutions in different formats like – Check up on your friends more often, show appreciation to your friends, e.t.c. However, this year, I’ve decided to take it seriously and put in conscious effort to build and value my relationship with people.

 6 Struggles Only Girls With 4C Hair Would Understand

After extensive research, I finally concluded that I have  4C hair even though I wanted 4A hair with all those baby curls. Don’t know your hair type or not sure what all I just wrote means?

My Top 5 Leave-in Conditioners For Natural Hair

While writing this post, I realized that all the products are under 5000 Naira ($10), it got me wondering why people are always complaining that “having natural hair is expensive”. Once you find the right products for your hair, you really do not have to break the bank to maintain healthy hair. These products are my absolute favorites that have been of great help on my natural hair journey and I’ve gone through at least 2 tubs/bottles of each. I use the Liquid – Cream – Oil (LCO) method to moisturize my hair and Leave-in conditioners are the creams I use. So far, these are my favorites: Continue reading “My Top 5 Leave-in Conditioners For Natural Hair”
