Smell Through The ….. (Guest Post)

Recently I’ve had my eyes opened massively . To find out that someone you loved more than anything cheated all the way through your relationship. That also includes sleeping with people. I’ve seen the proof.

I tell you what though it hurts knowing on a night (like so many I did this) I picked her up from town when she was drunk. Moments before shes kissing someone else.

Its all coming out and the proof is undeniable.

And I’m looking through all these messages where she would threaten to kill herself because I couldn’t come over. The amount of times I would have to contact her friends as I was worried about it. The amount of times this was threatened is unbelievable.

All I ever wanted to do was help.

I never see this person now it was years ago I just hope they are in a better place & good luck to the next guy…or the next few.

Strange Cars In The Night By Eric Keegan

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:
Strange Cars in the Night is a savage debut poetry collection that moves at breakneck speed, written in the taste of a modern-day Hunter S. Thompson. It continues to unfurl Eric’s stream of conscious writing style onto the page and depicts an almost hallucinogenic recounting of what happens every night when the moon comes out to play.
My Thoughts:
I love reading poetry and this was one of those books with poetry that you just absolutely fall in love with. It’s written in a sort of stream of consciousness and it feels like you’re reading someones thoughts out loud. Instead of trying to prove a point or trying too hard these poems flow naturally.
Like I said in my last post I’m a really big fan of Keegan’s writing and I love his style. This book is probably my favourite book that I’ve read this year and I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

The Dioramist By Eric Keegan (Book Review)

“Sometimes, when you take a rooted step out the front door, you feel like a song.”

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:

The titular character in Eric Keegan’s The Dioramist is in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. He may only be in his midtwenties, but the dioramist finds himself lost and confused. He has spent so much of his time in an ill-defined relationship that he doesn’t understand himself apart from his partner.

When a friend suggests that he begin writing down his inner thoughts, hopes, and dreams, our hero sets off on an adventure that shows him a new passion in life. Writing becomes fundamental to his identity, but he isn’t sure if he has the courage to share his thoughts with the world.

At the same time, he struggles with his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Elizian. The two have been in a holding pattern for so long that neither is sure they’re ready to make the next step. As the writer gains enlightenment about his own life, Elizian will be inspired to seek out the same.

This intimate, personal look at one man’s journey shows the many different routes recovery can take and reminds you that it’s never too late to fall in love with something new.

My Thoughts: 

I loved reading this book. I’m just going to get right into it and say this was one of my favourite books I’ve read recently. I love Keegan’s flow and the way his books are so free and like a stream of consciousness.

It was also quite relatable because being in your twenties is so super confusing and scary but it’s also where you find yourself and realise what you really want in life.

I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

5 Ways To Make Your Blog Look More Professional

Get more traffic to your blog by making it look more professional!

lifesfinewhine

You do not need to necessarily have a super professional looking blog but it would help increase both traffic and followers. It would also help if you are thinking of attracting sponsors or working with other blogs as more companies are likely to work with you if you have a very professional looking blog. Anyway, here are some tips that might help you out

1. Edit- One of the first things people tend to notice is whether or not your post has been edited. It may not seem like a big deal and it may seem like your writing is fine but a lot of times when you reread your post you will find little mistakes you didn’t even realize you had made. Make sure to read through it at least once to check for spelling errors and grammar mistakes. A well edited post shows the reader that you have…

5 Social Media Marketing Do’s and Don’ts from a freelance Social Media Consultant

Really great tips!

ThisthingcalledFashion

5 Social Media Marketing Do’s and Don’ts, THISTHINGCALLEDFASHIONIt’s about time I wrote about this, not just from a social media consultants perspective but also as a blogger/influencer who has been disgusted by ill-mannered marketing approaches and blown away by well thought out messages.

DON’TS

Don’t be spammy.

Just don’t do it. Do not send DMs/comments requesting for a follow back or create a group and share a link to your new product/post without permission.

Don’t ignore comments: Engaging with your customers is vital for business. They feel heard & more relevant but with no engagement they may feel as if you don’t care about their question, comment or concern. It all comes back to customer service. Don’t ignore relevant comments. Use them as an opportunity to interact with your followers.

Don’t rely on automation: This aspect is still very new to Nigerian business which is a good thing on this case because the brands still maintain…

Another Scary Experience!

A lot of universities need students to do co-facilitation’s which is when you teach the seminar for one class. My university is one of them. I have five of those to do this semester and I just finished my first one yesterday and I thought I would tell you guys about how it went!

Image result for sweating gif

Firstly, the seminar topic I was doing was about Kenya so I at least I knew what I was talking about and I didn’t have to do a ton of research on the topic.

Image result for yes gif

So it started with me having to explain the two articles which was alright because I had written notes on what I had to say and kind of just read from the paper. The only thing was I was a little red in the face, kind of looking down while reading and not making too much eye contact. But I don’t think it was that bad.

Image result for it's aight gif

Then I had to ask question which I had prepared which was a little scary because sometimes people just stare at you and no one answers.

Image result for staring gif

Luckily this class was not like that and people participated and answered a lot which was so great. That was a big load off my chest.

Image result for thank god gif

Plus, the professor was SO sweet and helpful. He would always chime in with helpful questions, answers and information. I thought that was nice because some TA’s/Professors don’t do that and you’re kind of just left hanging.

Image result for left hanging gif

I was super anxious the whole time obviously but it was 50 minutes and I somehow got through it without totally freaking out.

Image result for pretending to be okay gif

After the class my professor talked to me and told me I did a good job which was so nice of him. I got my results for it and I got 9/10!

Image result for happy gif

I’m glad I have these co-facilitation’s because I’m hoping they’ll help me get over my anxiety a little and be better at being in charge and talking to groups of people.

Image result for social anxiety gif

Well that’s where my story ends. Have an awesome weekend guys!

How To Push Your Way Out Of The Comfort Zone (Guest Post)

At that moment, when you realize that everything turned out and life was a success, it turns out that the diligent comfort zone so diligently conceals an immense danger.

There is such an old and very right saying: “Fish looks for is deeper water, man for better places to live.” And this is absolutely correct and natural. Each person strives to make his life as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. . It would be complete idiocy to abandon these benefits of civilization.

It would seem, well, what is wrong with a quiet, comfortable existence? You feel relaxed, there are no risks in your life, you are satisfied with how things are going, and you do not feel any need to change anything. Maybe you do not feel incredibly happy, or 100% satisfied, but at least you feel comfortable, right?

No.

Almost always your comfort zone is the fruit of self-deception. You tell yourself that the best alternative to your current position does not exist, that you have spent too much effort to build it, that it is already too difficult to change anything in life. You stop at one place, although quite a convenient location, and with your own hands nullify all the great prospects of your life. The comfort zone turns you to the end point of your journey. Why is this happening?

You become soft.
What happens to a person who takes a bath of warm water for a while? He relaxes, limp. And if such a stay stretch for quite a long time? That is right, and it is degrading. His muscles lose their tone and very soon he will not be able not only to run but even just to stand still.

But this concerns not only the body. The same thing happens with our brain. The lack of the need to solve complex problems makes it to where liquefaction in the head and loss of clarity of thinking, ability to learn and make decisions.

You become a vegetable that moves along the same trajectory every day and performs the same tasks every day.

In the meantime, remember which period of your life was the most fruitful and creative for you? I am sure that these were not the most pleasant and comfortable times. Some will remember sleepless student nights, other life-threatening journeys and situations, and still others — crisis periods in their lives when everything had to start all over again.

You give up on life goals.
Everyone, well, almost everyone, a person has somewhere deep in the sub cortex that most cherished goal of his life. Yes, something from the series “to see Paris and die.” The most exciting thing is that very often these goals are not so expensive and unattainable. But something always bothers us.

We postpone our goal further and further, and as the comfort zone grows around you, it becomes practically unattainable. It is so difficult to get out of a warm bath even for a while and go out into the street.

You may never know yourself
There is an opinion, and it has been justified entirely, that only in difficulties the real face of a person is revealed. You can live your whole life in greenhouse conditions and never know what you really can do. Can you really be bold and inventive? Do you be able to show patience and perseverance, or does it just seem to you?

It is time to get out of your comfort zone and understand, if only for yourself, what kind of person you are and where lies the limit of your possibilities. I assure you that the result will surely surprise you.

Sooner or later, the comfort zone for any person turns into that factor which slows down its development and deprives life of sharpness of sensations. Remember the most exciting moments of your life. Surely most of them are connected precisely with those moments when you were doing something unusual, extreme, going beyond the usual routine, leaving your comfort zone.

So why not do it again?

My Favourite Vegan Brands: Skylar

“After many months of working with world-class perfumers and testing our products in real life, we created a collection of perfumes that gave us the answer we were all looking for. Skylar is a brand of natural perfumes that you can feel great about spritzing. The name Skylar was inspired by the qualities of a clear day – airy, natural, and beautiful.”

The other day I was lucky enough to receive some amazing samples from a brand called Skylar. They make perfumes which are vegan, cruelty free and hypoallergenic. Their products are also Paraben free, Sulfate free, Phthalate free, Allergen free and they also have no Synthetic Dyes. Plus since they are certified vegan they have no animal products in their perfumes either. For more on their ingredients click here.

Skylar prefers to use as many natural ingredients as they can and the rest of the ingredients are also tested to make sure they are not harmful to the person using them.

I had been looking for vegan and cruelty free perfumes for a while now when I came across their site. It was actually one of those freak instances where the universe kind of pushes (or usually in my case shoves…) you in the right direction.

They have six perfumes in the sample box and for this part of the blog I will be talking about them individually:

  1. Arrow- “Warm, spicy and seductive.” I really liked the smell of this one. It smells exactly how they describe it. I think this would be perfect if you’re one of those people who loves socialising or going out a lot. I also think this would be the perfect perfume to wear on a date. It has that punk rock aura to it that I absolutely loved.
  2. Capri- “Sparkling, zesty, and sweet.” I really liked this one too. I think this is perfect for spring when the flowers are coming in and you’re no longer freezing to death. If you’re a social person with an extroverted personality this is what I assume your scent would be like.
  3. Coral- “Fruity, floral, and flirty.” This one was my sisters favourite out of all of them. I think this is the perfect scent for summer because it’s so light and fruity- it feels like you just came back from picking fruit. My sister has been using it every day even though it’s winter but I think it still totally works!
  4. Isle– “Clean, dewy, and fresh.” This scent is very reminiscent of the ocean or the beach. This is another perfume that would be absolutely perfect for summer. It kind of reminds me of when you’re a kid and your parents take you to the beach. The perfume really brings back good memories.
  5. Meadow- “Floral, elegant, and beautiful.” This is my second favourite scent out of all six of them. It smells very fresh like you’re sitting in a garden full of flowers. I think this is the perfect perfume for spring and summer especially it you’re an outdoorsy person.
  6. Willow- “Woodsy, lush, and cool.” Although I loved all the samples this was my absolute favourite. I’ve been wearing this every day since I received the samples. It is totally the perfect scent for my personality. It’s earthy and it feels like your sitting in a forest and I just absolutely love it. I love nature and to be able to smell it all day long is just the best feeling ever especially since it’s winter and nothing smells earthy right now.

My Final Thoughts

As I say a lot on this blog I have very sensitive skin and a lot of makeup products and perfumes cause me to get eczema and so I was a little nervous to try out Skylar, a brand I had never used before. However, thankfully my skin was totally fine and there was no reaction from the perfume at all. So if you are very sensitive I would recommend trying out these perfumes.

I think the price is not the most affordable but I do think it’s worth the price. It lasts the whole day for me even though I spray it on in the morning and since it’s hypoallergenic it doesn’t mess up my skin. Plus, it’s vegan and cruelty free and better for the environment then other perfumes.

In case you’re confused about which one to buy they have a quiz that will match you with the perfect perfume for you.

If you’re still not sure whether you want to buy the perfumes try out their sample palette. It costs $20 but you earn a $20 credit which you can use to buy a full sized bottle of whichever one you liked the best! And if that’s not enough I was able to get you guys a discount! Use the code POOJA10 (all caps) to get 10% off.

Giving Back

“We contribute a portion of our proceeds and time to Step Up – non-profit organization that provides mentorship for underprivileged high school girls across the country.”
