Hola!!

I’m not sure why I’m greeting in the only Spanish word I know.

But, Happy October! Last Quarter! *Insert Dramatic Drum Roll*

I was looking at my 2016 list a couple of weeks ago, and while somethings have worked, some haven’t. Learning to swim and drive hasn’t happened yet, but at least the blog as happened (even though in the goal plan, I actually wrote YouTube). The aim was not to write but to actually share my thoughts on a channel. I thought it’ll be easier. Now, not so sure. One thing i’ll totally still love though, is to have the Super Women Interviews in person!

Ok I promised myself this will be short, because a few people thought the August recap was a tad bit long. Brevity is not my forte, and i just love talking to you all!

Not sure if this taking stock format, makes me talk more, but it gives me an easy way out (because I’m typing this at 11 pm on Sunday!); so I still love it for now!

  • Eating: – smaller portions (honestly)! Apparently healthy living is 80% what you eat. So in our plates should be 1/4 carbs, 1/4 protein and 1/2 veg. Let’s do it people! I’m also eating more veggies – even peas – which I actually do not like! Not sure when I’ll eat broccoli though.
  • Reading:  Areas Ugwu’s Smart Money Woman. (If you follow me on Instagram, you already know) I consider myself really good with money, but it’s helpful to always learn new tips and tricks and how to make your money work for you. Who has read it? Thoughts?
  • Wanting: red or brightly coloured frames. I can’t pull off contacts and I’m tired of my current ones. I had pink ones at some point. They were pretty!
  • Wondering: if anyone is reading this blog for the first time. Say Hi if you are!
  • Loving: my iMac! So remember my tech wishlist. Only one item is still on the wishlist! Got the iMac and since I’ve never used an Apple computer so I keep googling the most random stuff. Don’t tell, but I had to google where the power button was. Need to take some time off to learn it properly.
  • Liking: this verse. “Perhaps you were born for a time such as this”? It’s from the book of Esther in the Bible (4:14).  It’s a deep one. What’s your purpose. Times may be trying, Things may not be working. People may be downcast. But just maybe you have been born to fix something or inspire someone!
  • Marvelling: at people who can speak several languages!
  • Watching: Skinny Girl in Transit. It’s a Nigerian based web series, and i just love it! Love the fact that the main character, is not skinny and doesn’t conform to the popular standard of beauty, and all the men are over her! If you’ve watched it. Team Kola, Femi or Mide? What else should I check out? Tee is watching Narcos, but I can’t deal with all that violence.
  • Looking: forward to a Christian weekend retreat I may attend this month! No phones, not much talking, just quality time for faith to be strengthened.
  • Noticing:  that I need to get new pairs of flat shoes! Still can’t get used to the popular UK lifestyle of wearing sneakers to work and then switching at work. So I wear flats. And most of mine need to go to the bin. Since I started blogging I’ve literally stopped shopping. Is that even a good thing?
  • Creating: a new layout for the blog. I get bored so easily, so I’ll probably switch things up a bit this month, if I’ve got some time.
  • Thinking: of signing up for an eyebrow makeup class later this month. Hopefully my makeup game will improve after that!
  • Wishing: you all an amazing October, and i’m really hoping it’s a great one for us all. What are your plans? Share with us, and maybe we can tag along on something fun.

On the blog font, the most popular posts (judging from the comments) were the Letter to my Younger Self and 3 Important Details in Creating Beautiful Wedding Memories!. Thank you for always sharing your thoughts!

I personally loved the Tongue Check post, and speaking to Nigeria’s Social Prefect! Although I knew it won’t be popular, I felt inclined  to write the Letter to Recruiters. Guess what, a recruiter reached out to me to explain their point of view. Remember, it’s not always about the figures, but the impact. We also had a guest post, as Tayo shared her Ghana trip with us, and confirms that Ghana Jollof rice is amazing! Oh and since it’s a new month, are you likely to adopt these great habits?

Finally,  I love hearing your thoughts, and I’m constantly thinking of ways to make the time spent on here a great one for you. Ideas, please let me know! And welcome to all who found our little corner on the web in September. We hope you love it, you stick around and invite others!

What’s October going to be like for you? Are we in sync on any of the above?

Love,

Kachee… Xx

pS: Half the time, when I use the words ‘we’ or ‘our’ on this blog, I mean me + all the amazing readers! This place will be filled with cobwebs without you all!

    This verse in Esther 4:14 has showed up in my reads twice in less than 24 hours. Hmmm. Maybe God is trying to tell me something. 😇I’ll be going on an extended Whole30 with the #100daysofCL hashtag on Twitter & hopefully I get consistent with my workouts this month.Can’t believe it’s the last quarter of the year! Time really does fly!Have a blessed October Mama! 😘😘

    The Smart Money Woman book is beautiful. I loves how she used Zuri’s story to teach us about our Money life and all her advertising for Nigerian brands (e.g HOT powder, ladybiba, Rsvp, Wimbiz, SheleadsAfrica etc. ) At one point my sister had to comment that Isn’t she thinking global but I liked that she’s taking Nigeria to the world.You googling the power button is something I can do. LolStarting a YouTube channel is a great idea. Enjoy October dear ❤️thatinternist.wordpress.com

      I think I’m now too Shy for the YouTube ohh. But let’s keep going and see how it turns out. Good point about the Nigerian brands, but again, maybe it’s her way of introducing them to the world. Plus it’s best to write about what you know. Rather than use locations or events you can’t really relate too. Remember it’s an African girl’s story. Have a great one darling!

    Haha! Girl, I also google some of the most random and “easy” things. I always say that if people saw my google search history, they will definitely look at me differently. And oh, I love, love this type of posts, they actually give away more details than you probably think. “It’s in the little things”, they say. And, I am definitely looking into getting that book. I NEED it major!Have the most amazing October!www.theufuoma.comTravel | Lifestyle | PassionOh, can I drop a post suggestion? What do you think about people dropping their blog URLs in the comments section, just like I have done? Does it feel weird? It does to me. I have found some of the most amazing blogs via the comment section but sometimes can’t help but think that people only comment on other people’s blogs as one extra way to drive traffic to their website. Is it a norm in the blogosphere? I am relatively new so some things are still a bit unclear to me. I do not have a problem with it on my site, absolutely not but I can’t help but feel weird doing it. Shed light, maybe?And finally, for the umpteenth time, I love your blog, you are easily my fave lifestyle blogger, so, never stop! 🙂

      Ufuoma! Gosh, thank you SO much!! I love you! And you’re def in the spirit, because one of my posts for this month will be on the questions I get asked the most re blogging, and that’s one of them! But I think it’s totally fine to leave your links! Even advisable. I used to feel weird about it, but not anymore. I’ll give more details in the post! 💗

    I love you, KacheeTee!!!! I haven’t commented because I always felt I didn’t have something to say or always reserved my comment, but I like my first comment. I like the verse you’re liking, too. It just gave me an idea of the next devotional plan to take up 😉 Then, I also like the outline of this article; it was so easy to read. Even when you kept towing us on using words like ‘Finally,’ I just read on smiling.You know, I was just thinking about how you do this; combining working and blogging. You know, blogging is different from writing. Writing consistently, keeping up with comments and replying as much as you can. I didn’t think I had the energy, but now I know better. You’re doing a great work! I love that you combine creating content with fun, and I love reading.Cheers,Annie.

This comment has literally made my day – I’m sure people are wondering why I’m smiling like this at this moment!As for combining working and blogging, trust me I thought I’d be the last person able to pull it off. It’s quite tough, but I just absolutely love blogging! Thanks for commenting darling! Love you 💗

    Happy new Month Kachee! I also want to change my frames. Tired of my present frames that gimme this geeky look so I’m looking for something more funky.lol. Not a fan of contact lenses if not I would have tried it out. I plan on starting sewing lessons this month. This has been on my mind for a really long time now so I’ve decided to give it a try. I hope you get to achieve all that’s on your list before the year runs out.Evita In Progress

    September was really great. Anniversary month (3years) woot woot, Hubby’s birthday was also in september, a day after our anniversary. We also go answers to supplications we’ve been making in prayers since the beginning of the year, this september… So yeah september was really an awesome month. Hoping for an equally awesome a and even better October. Looking good already so we’re thankful.
