June is here guys! Wow,I really cannot believe we are actually in the sixth month of 2019.
This just makes me want to evaluate – how much have I achieved? Where do I stand? How much do I still have to do?
I was definitely among those who made resolutions at the beginning of the year,it seems like that was just yesterday,but it’s June already. This year is really moving so fast.
Have I learnt anything so far?
To say I have not learnt anything so far will be a total lie to myself. In fact, I would say I learnt more than I could ever imagine,in just the past 5 months.
1• I learnt to invest more in myself
By consistently adding value to myself; doing a lot of research on the business areas I want to go into,reading articles on self development,reading books by entrepreneurs that motivate me,even randomly getting knowledge from the bible!
I have been taking conscious steps to add value to myself every single day.
2• I learnt and still learning to be patient
To stop reacting or speaking out of anger,to listen to two sides of any story before drawing conclusions or judging.
I have always been one to say ‘the most’ when I’m angry,and I was always quick to draw conclusions,these two always caused a lot of drama in my friendships.
I am consciously learning to be more patient now,in order to have more peaceful and stable relationships with people.
3• Self love
I have been struggling with self love for years,but I have figured that ;
‘If you don’t love yourself and everything that makes you yourself, you will think anyone that loves or even likes you is doing you a favour, and then you’ll end up sticking around just anyone, including toxic people,because you feel like you are not the best and you cannot have better’
Not having self love is really toxic,it’s bad and nothing good ever comes out of it,it also kills your self esteem.
I am consciously putting a lot of effort into loving myself,accepting flaws I can’t change, working on weaknesses that can become strengths and focusing so much on the things I love about myself,things that make me different and beautiful.
Goals for June
- Definitely to love myself more and be more confident
- To keep investing in myself
- To let patience become a part of me
- To cultivate a better saving habit
- To be very disciplined.
Over to the juiciest part of this post…
Nail trends of the season
Trends never stop coming up,the fashion and beauty industry just keeps evolving and that’s a good thing.
Although,my take on trends is;
‘If it is not me,then it doesn’t work for me’
I am open to trying out new trends only if they fit into my personal style or beauty preferences.
Honestly, you do not have to try out every single trend,you will loose your own authenticity in style. Also, your $avings might suffer from such habit.
Some of the spring nail trends that have already started surfacing even before June are;
Dark nail shades – in black and dark berries.
Nudes – nudes that look like they are barely there.
Nude nails with special effects – so glam!
Color pop – neons, bright coral, pastels.
Crystal embellishments – where my diamonds at?
Metallics/shine – go bold or go home.
That’s all for this post.

The neon green nails are really charging me up though,I love them.
