Whatido? How are you feeling the taste of life? Feels so good to be back here again, am literally bubbling with Joy underneath!! I woke up so stoked today, with that good good feeling filling up my blood stream making me so hype n bubbly guys at work actually think I got laid a good one aki hahahha!!
I have no personal news to share with you but that of my loved ones. I am feeling gratitude for the good things hapenning to some of my loved ones and I thought I’d share in their goodness.
Guys!! My friends are winning in life yo!!
From career growths, dreams manifesting, baby showers, engagements (Hi Myra hihihihi am still stocked n teary), endorsements to self awareness and enlightmenet! Good things are happenning!
I am so happy!
It’s so surreal! So BEAUTIFUL and inspiring too. I feel blessed to watch their evolution!
Sometimes, it only takes good things to happen to those you associate with to keep your belief of good things coming afloat. Don’t get me wrong, we personally have good things going on too but today I wanted to celebrate my people’s blessings!
I had one long conversation with my gurl Mandii (The Throwdown Queen) last night catching up on where we are at in life, career wise, dreams, desires, our content creation, love life name it! It’s important that you have a support system of like minded people to always keep each other in check n call out each other where you’re slacking at.
As creatives, our industry is not so factual and most cases you have to figure shit out on your own, define your narrative, sell it, hoping people will buy it. It gets tough at times especially when that lame human need of wanting your ART to be recognized strikes, that you can easily get sucked into giving up.
What am so stoked about is how resilient my peeps have gotten!! How everyone is just busy grinding expanding their ART. My rant wall Sly ( I just call sly to rant about shit hahahaha) @SylviaOwalla has grown into an amazing model with her beautiful face gracing top commercials from Hub of Africa to Crown ads in the country to internatinal publications like Vogue Italia!! Gurl!!! Hollywood here she comes!! Keep on shining mama. Keep on checking my a** too where am slacking. You are appreciated much!! Aheri 🙂
Maan, I garra S/O Miss Mandii for constatntly pushing her self n love for food storytelling! Dude!! First, follow her on the gram n eeerwhere else @MissMandii n her food blog @missmandithrowdown for easy yummy food recipes n generally good vibes!!
I rem how the throwdown started form us just loving her food n always raiding her fridge and bullying her too cook for us. A few years later, A website, Vlog and a huge community of food lovers who believe in her ART and passion and to top it off some really dope ass collabs and opportunities to grow her passion for food blogging. I look at how she has expanded n shipped her, art even incorporating food illustrations, and stories. All I can think is :WOW!! Keep revolutionizing the game mama!! I am so proud of you!
