How I Save Money On Clothes Shopping

It should be no surprise to anyone who knows me well that I don’t like spending a lot of money on clothes, because I don’t see why we should have to. And lots of you are always shocked to hear where I buy some of my best pieces, and how affordable they often are. It really doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to look good! Today I’m sharing some easy ways to cut corners and save some money long-term when it comes to clothes shopping.

5 Things Every Fresher Needs To Know Before Starting University!

Hey guys, as it is A Level Results Day 2017, I thought now is an appropriate time to share some tips for any of my readers getting ready to go to university this autumn. First and foremost, if you are in this position, huge congratulations to you! Completing sixth form/college is an amazing feeling and a huge achievement.

However, if for whatever reason you’re not going to university this year and you were planning to go, please don’t be too disheartened. Setbacks and redirections are a part of life and you will grow from it… even I didn’t end up going to the university that I really wanted to go to and in hindsight, it was definitely a blessing that I was rejected from my “dream uni”. You won’t always immediately recognise what wonderful things God has in store for you, so be encouraged no matter your circumstances.

But if you are going to university this year, it’s time to prepare. Today I’m going to aid your preparation by sharing 5 tips that I think every fresher should know before starting university.

How I (Honestly) Stayed Motivated Whilst Job Hunting

Hey guys, how’s everyone doing?

I decided to write this blog post for a few reasons. One reason is because I know that the topic will resonate with many… whether you’ve been to university or not, whether you’re looking for an entry level job or you’re trying to make a career move, we can all relate to job hunting in some shape or form. I’m also conscious that around this time of year loads of people graduate and begin the quest of searching high and low for a graduate job… and it can be a pretty gruelling process if you don’t have the right support and information.

A second reason is because truthfully, I get asked the question a lot: how did I stay motivated? So on one hand, whilst I’d rather not revisit dark times, I do believe that sometimes we go through difficult “seasons” in life in order to be a blessing to others. I’m here to share the big or small lessons that I’ve learned along the way. So when people learn of how long it took me to be offered a graduate job after completing university, that is usually one of their first questions – exactly HOW did I keep going. It’s a valid question and today I’m going to thoroughly answer (well as thorough as I can be in a blog post anyway).

The first thing I want to say is that you probably won’t feel motivated 100% of the time during your job search and that’s okay. Let’s just be real. I’d be a liar if I suggested otherwise, because I certainly didn’t experience an easy ride… you guys know this. At my worst, there were weeks when I just about managed to leave my house twice – once for fellowship and once for church. And other than that, I’d lock myself in my room, (mentally) chained to my laptop, desperately sending application after application praying for a breakthrough. I became obsessed with refreshing my LinkedIn homepage just to see who was working where and what everyone was “up to” post university. The journey was very tumultuous but if I’m honest the two main things I ensured never to stop doing were 1. actually applying for jobs & 2. having faith in God and my ability to succeed.  Continue reading “How I (Honestly) Stayed Motivated Whilst Job Hunting”

“Nigerian Fast Food” in London? – I Go Chop Restaurant Review

I Go Chop, self-proclaimed as “the world’s FIRST concept based Nigerian takeaway” opened in June 2017 in Camberwell, South East London. I’d heard and read so much about I Go Chop before I decided to go and try it out earlier this week with my friend Dapo. This new contemporary Nigerian food spot has massively blown up on my Twitter timeline in recent weeks and I like it when a business understands how to promote itself well on social media. I Go Chop has also featured on Channel 4 Sunday Brunch Show and so far, I’ve only seen glowing reviews. So with the bar set very high and my expectations even higher, here’s what I thought of my trip to I Go Chop:
