Blog Break… Reforms… And Changes…

 

Hello Everyone… It’s been a while.

Welcome to the month of July.. I decided to put up this post after a while of critical thinking and deliberations.. So I’m just going to hit the nail on the head now.

I’ve been feeling a little bit conflicted about my blog and what I’m doing with it. So I started to think of new ways to make my blog better in terms of reader-participation. I’ve come up with a few ideas, but I’d like you all to participate too.

First of all, I’m narrowing my niche. It’s going to be Personal Style, Fashion Designing, and Random chitchats or fitness (I’ve still not decided on which yet). The Fashion Designing posts would feature Fashion Designing tutorials, tips and tasks. Personal Style is going to feature my style, ankara inspiration and a monthly style feature, where I give a theme for the month and feature the looks of people based on that theme.

I’m going to entertain more collaborations within Abuja, within Nigeria, and hopefully outside Nigeria too.

I plan to put up about 8 posts in a month; 2 in a week.

I’m also thinking of going self-hosted. I want something close to a fresh beginning and I think it’s high time I went self-hosted.

So the thing is I’m taking time out to really plan for this. About a month break. I won’t be posting, but I’d be present on the blogs of fellow bloggers, I’d also be active on my social media (instagram and twitter). I’m setting up my facebook page. I’m sorry guys…  Don’t ditch me, I’d be back.

Hopefully, when next you hear from me on this blog, I’d be self-hosted, and all these changes would be effected. I’d also appreciate feedback from you. You can send an email @ girleccentricblog@gmail.com or leave a comment here. I’d appreciate any idea to move this blog forward. I’d also like to know if you like the ideas I’ve laid out and what more you want to see in my blog.

I’d appreciate every comment, advice, compliment, tip, encouragement, or whatever you can give.

Till next time guys. . .

I love you all.

Law Students X Blogging: GirlEccentric

I was featured on thechicstreetlawyer on combining blogging with my law studies.
This is the interview.

The Chic Street Lawyer

It’s notably a fact that a lot of student bloggers blame their inconsistency on school work. School work is alarming especially in Nigerian Universities where everything just has to be so stressful including learning.

Anyway, like I said HERE, I usually marvel when I see bloggers/ students of some very serious ass overhyped courses like medicine, law, etc consistently take their time to develop excellent content.

This is the reason for this post, I asked some great bloggers/law students who are good at their blogging game and somehow manage to keep their academics at a balance level. I too have plans in upping my game and so I’ll be learning a lot too.

Initially, this feature of six bloggers was supposed to be a single post but trust law students and long notes, I have to make each feature a single post that would run weekly so it won’t…

Today I’m going to talk about love. The silent type. Concealed behind a curtain.
The light that is best hidden under a bushel… It gives to those that are near, but doesn’t stray too far. It fears that the wind may put it out if it stands on the bushel.
The drizzle that slowly creates an ocean..
The drizzle that lets others be, while it is.
I’m going to pour my heart out..
Today, I’m going to be somebody…
Tonight I am a big deal.

Today I’m going to talk about love
The silent love
My love speaks in silence
Silent volumes …

Tonight I’m going to talk about love
A love that won’t be spoken of because it is a silent love
Silent mysteries…

My Attempt at Skincare Blew up in my Face (you may be hurting your skin)

 

If you follow me on instagram and in “real life” (🙄) you’d know that I’m particular about my skin and I’ve always wanted a skincare regimen that would work for me. Well I found one that didn’t work for me.

On Remaining on the Fence – ambiversion

 

There’s been a dispute in my mind.

A Guide to Fashion Designing – perfecting your model’s face

 

This aspect of fashion designing I’m going to take you through, is the more artistic side of perfecting your model or template — the face.
In my early days of designing, I left my designs faceless because I hated drawing faces. Now it’s the part I enjoy drawing most; being able to create different looks, deciding whether your model is fierce or cute, with high cheekbones or just a chubby round face, does she have nappy hair or straight hair, and every thing related to creating a person.
