Taking Stock: One

Recently I stumbled on this cool find, Taking Stock, on Sharon Ongwa‘s blog. She is one of my favourite bloggers. Taking stock is poised reflective questions on the life you’re living. We are sometimes too busy living that we reflect later about the memories and people in our lives. Taking stock helps you realise how right now is the most important time in your life, and to live in the moment. I think it will be interesting to include this occasionally.


Making: plans on how to grow my blog and start my design career.

Cooking: nothing at the moment. But obsessed with this banana bread recipe I stumbled on.

Drinking: cosmopolitannnnnnnnn! It’s my favourite go to cocktail at the moment.

Reading: Blue ocean strategy, and why men love bitches *looking away whistling* lool.

Wanting: honestly? To be a wag. loooooooool. Please don’t judge me, obsessed with WAGS on E! especially Autumn.

Playing: games. Candy crush and Block!

Wasting: my time trying to control things I can’t ever.

Sewing: nothing at the moment. Can’t wait to get stitching.

Wishing: that my keys could talk to me whenever they go missing and that these times will be a memory soon.

Enjoying: living in the moment.

Liking: instagram profile layouts, thinking of deleting all my pictures on there and starting again.

Wondering: when I’ll be so deep in love the oceans will be jealous. Hey Khloe.

Loving: the dope braided hairstyles I have been wearing lately.

Hoping: to travel and do more exploring this year.

Marvelling: at sunsets. So much beauty!

Needing: to get some camera equipments.

Smelling: si by Giorgio Armani and some others. I have never stuck to just one smell.

Wearing: flat sandals a lot these days.

Following: interesting blogs and instagram accounts like AfroElle mag

Noticing: how it is already March! 3 months away from mid 2016. Then it’s december. Then it’s countdown! How? How? Howww?

Knowing: that the sunshine is just around the corner.

Thinking: how power and influence gets things done.

Bookmarking: 10 things you’ll regret not doing in your twenties see here. FOMO lol.

Opening: packs and packs of cheese balls these days.

Giggling: at funny instagram handles like funnyafricanpics. My comedy fix for end of the day stress.

Feeling: grateful for my family and friends. Having a support system goes a long way and puts things in perspective.

What are you observing, feeling, watching or bookmarking these days? I’d really love to know.
