DISCOVER GEORGIA: BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Temple Atlanta

Hi there!

I've got another Discover Georgia post for you to check out today. If you're new to the series, I like to routinely check out various tourist attractions in Georgia. A lot of people seem to think that Georgia begins and ends with Atlanta, but there is so much more to see and experience. Some of my posts are from sights within Metro Atlanta, and others are not. Today's post is about the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. It is a Hindu temple located in the Lilburn, Georgia area.

Mummy and Me: Blazer and Jeans

Happy Monday!

I have wanted to put these photos up for months! They were taken on the same day as these other photos, in the same location, by my sister. Somehow we "lost" the photos. She thought she had sent them to me. I couldn't find them anywhere on my Google drive or my laptop. I essentially gave up on ever posting them, but God is good! Tammy found them a little time ago and I'm so glad I get to share them with you today :)

Clever Girl Finance Book Event in Atlanta

I have been part of the Clever Girl Finance program for a few years now. Clever Girl Finance is a platform that aims to teach women how to be financially savvy and build personal wealth. Earlier this year, I was asked to be one of the Clever Girl Finance mentors - to be honest, I was quite surprised because, to be honest, I don't have a lot of money. At all. My savings account goes up and down and up and down, and sometimes, it seems like I'm living paycheck to paycheck. But the truth of the matter is, I have gained a lot of knowledge from Clever Girl Finance and have made strides in my finances over the years. Sometimes I slip up and make silly mistakes, but I always bounce back based on what I have learned and put into practice. This whole time, through my Clever Girl Finance journey, I had never met the founder, Bola Sokunbi until August 2019!!!

Menstrual Cups: I made the switch, and Ask Me Anything!

I was 11 years old when I first got my period. It was in a Mr. Biggs in Port Harcourt - back in the days when Port Harcourt made sense and security was not an issue. I remember smiling to myself because my mum had started talking to us about periods, boys, relationships, etc. I quickly went to let her know and she hugged me, welcoming me into "womanhood."
