If you asked me for a New Year Resolution, it would be to find out who I am. ~ Cyril Cusack.

Happy New Year once again! It’s only the second week of the New Year and one out of the many things still trending in the New Year are 'New Year Resolution(s).’ Many people have different takes on it, but I'm a little bit indifferent about the New Year Resolution thing. I have never really made a New Year Resolution but I remember making one last year but along the way, I was never really faithful to it and at the end of the year, I realized this and also possible things that were responsible for it.

So, before I give a list of possible things to include in your New Year Resolutions this year, I would love to say that one of the things that could make you stay unfaithful to your resolutions is when you decide to make it a ‘normal thing’ to do. Making a New Year Resolution shouldn’t be a thing you have to do because that’s the norm. If that’s why it is done, it’s definitely not gonna bring out the results you envisaged because it is borne out of a wrong motivation. You don’t have to do it because people are doing it. Lastly, your list doesn’t have to be bogus. What are the things you probably feel you need to get better at? Or probably what did you leave undone last year? What are the new things you intend to get your hands on? The list of things to include in your resolutions are endless but it doesn’t have to irrelevant or unnecessary. The purpose is to get better and not to impress yourself by creating a very long list or your friends.

Now let’s get to it, the following are 5 possible things to include in your New Year Resolutions.

1. Stop Procrastinating: Trust me, procrastinating can be quite addictive. It’s so easy to postpone and say ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ and then just like that tomorrow never stops! It takes quite an effort to overcome but you can do it with dedication, consistency and determination.

2. Deal with that struggle: Sometimes, one of the hardest thing to address and deal with is our personal struggles. It’s time to stop denying and accept the fact that what we are going through/struggling with is very real and deciding/opening ourselves up to getting better and thereby embarking on the journey to healing.

3. Eat Healthy: Yes! The junk life is the easiest thing to get addicted to after procrastination. It’s time to drop the sweet/sugary things that endangers our system for the healthy ones. Choose to drop some flaxseeds in your flakes than sugar.

4. Read more: There is no shortcut to getting knowledge except you read! Not just reading anything but reading quality books. Books that cater for our different kinds of welfare from physical to spiritual.

5. Get quality sleep: The place of sleep doesn’t override the place of hard work. You can still get quality sleep while you work hard. Don’t see a movie while you’re supposed to be asleep. This can be quite challenging to achieve but with dedication you can pull it off! To each time, be true! Don’t breakdown due to lack of sleep because when you do, there will be no one to pull the hard work off.

Hope you did find this very helpful? What else are you adding to your list? Cheers to dedication, focus and determination.

Happy New Year!!!

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
