Quick Life Update – Starting a business, Trip to Nigeria, Meeting the parents, Back to blogging…​.

“Wearing Arewa scarf: www.shoparewa.com

Hey guys, It’s been a little while I posted on here. Sincerely, your sister has been struggling with balance and prioritizing which comes with losing interest in things you used to love to do because you feel that everything is literally everywhere.

Starting a business:

If you follow me on Instagram, where I have been able to stay active, you know lots of little-big events has been happening which I am just starting to balance slowly. I started my business in April. Yes, a premium scarf business: AREWA SCARVES which has been strongly supported by both online and offline.

I am so grateful to you guys and most especially for the support, we are all providing to the young girls at GHIEF with the business [£1 from every sale goes towards supporting a child education at GHIEF Foundation].

Apart from starting a business, I also travelled to Nigeria, where I had a launch party of the scarves. It was such a big success and I have everyone who attended and purchased to thank for that.

Finally, while I was in Nigeria for the launch event, of course, I was mainly there to spend some quality time with “Le Boo”. Guys, a long-distance relationship is tough and mostly expensive especially if you are like Mr A and me who plan to see every 3 months [I think I need a whole separate post to share our long distance experience and how we manage it]. This time he met my parents “officially” for the first time. I know it might not be a big deal but this was big and very important to me because I have NEVER introduced anyone to meet my parents officially before. I remember trying hard to avoid the visit and giving a million excuse on how far and bad the road to our house is: Girl, I was NERVOUS AF even though I couldn’t wait for both parties to meet.

At the end of the day, everything went well and I would say, I think they love him already. That’s being said, please bear with me as I slowly get back my full blogging groove back. I intend to post weekly [Haven’t decided a day yet – please suggest which day you would love me to post weekly].

Also, as a small business owner, I will be needing you guys for advice and most importantly, sharing what I am learning on this business journey and as usual sharing everything about blogging: Few people asked me how I am growing my Instagram [We hit 20K guys – yayyyy] even while I took a break from blogging and posting consistently? Let me know if you want the post here below.

Thank you everyone for your patience and see you next week!
