Berry Lovely Links


Thank God it's Friday! Today's the last day of my 30 Days of Thanksgiving challenge on Instagram (follow me @BerryDakara) and just like that, tomorrow is the first day of December!!! The year is pretty much over! Where did 2018 go? I won't lie, I'm looking forward to 2019 and hoping and praying for a much better year. I shall be using my Goal Getter Guide to map out what I want, and the steps I need to get those things. I hope you'll come back tomorrow for the launch of my FREE Goal Getter Guide!

Without further ado, here are my links for the week!

Introducing my GOAL GETTER GUIDE

Hey there!

I announced on Instagram about 2 weeks ago that I have been working on a Goal Setting packet, and will have it available for download this coming Saturday, December 1st!

8 Things I'm Grateful For in 2018

Hey everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving in arrears! Today I want to share 8 things that I'm most grateful for this year. I have been doing a challenge on Instagram this month, where I share something I am thankful for every day. Some of them have been silly, while others are more deep and thoughtful. I'm not copying verbatim what I have posted on Instagram, but I do want you guys who aren't on social media to thank God with me, and also hopefully share the things you've been thankful for this year so far.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

I planned on doing a thanksgiving post this week, but the week got away from me because I've been hard to work putting together a Goal Getter Guide that will be available for download on December 1st! It has taken up quite a bit of my time, and where I originally intended to just have a simple 1-2 page spreadsheet, it's become a full packet designed to help you figure out what you want for your life, and to set, plan, track and achieve goals to move you in that direction. I'm a little scared, nervous, anxious and also excited. I've gotten great feedback and constructive criticism from the few people who have seen it so far, and I can't wait for you to see it and start using it. I really want everyone to start planning for a smashing 2019!

Anyway, let's get to reading some pretty interesting links, shall we?

Long time no style post!

I have not done a style post in a VERY LONG time, for a multitude of reasons. First, I don't have anyone to readily take my photos - my brother, who's photographed me a few times (like here and here) is pretty busy and I get tired of running after him. Secondly, I have not bought my camera remote control and I feel like I would do a poor job of taking my own photos (even though, I did so here and here). Thirdly, I just have not felt very inspired to show my style... I know I don't have great style, and sometimes I feel a little silly thinking of doing style posts.

Another Friday, another set of links that I found interesting this past week. I, for one, am VERY happy this week is finally over! This has been such a stressful week, and I hope I give myself time to relax and do ME this weekend.

Cruise Vacay - Roatan, Honduras

We're continuing with the cruise vacation posts today, and this time our stop takes us to Roatan, Honduras. To be honest, if it wasn't for the cruise, it would never have occurred to me to visit Honduras. It's just not simply a country I had ever considered going to - mostly out of ignorance, I guess. But it proved to be our favorite stop during our week long Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas!

Hey hey,

It's pay day Friday and yay to being able to pay the bills!!! I shared a review of Clever Girl Finance this week, and one of the things I get excited about is budgeting and seeing how I can stay under budget while paying bills, and planning what my money does for me. Anyway, here are my links for the week.

Clever Girl Finance Review

I found out about Clever Girl Finance a couple of years ago - maybe three actually. I was pleasantly surprised to find a website/blog run by a Nigerian lady just like me, breaking down personal finance topics in ways that were easy, manageable and fun to read. I started sharing some of her posts in my Lovely Links, as I wanted to share the wealth (pun intended).

The Maggi Nigeria Ad and Superwoman Syndrome

Last week, Maggi released an advert featuring a woman who wears many hats through the course of her day - from Caretaker to Slayer to Boss Lady, and so on and so forth. When I first saw the ad, I was quite happy because I know someone who worked with the team on the shoot. I was very happy for her, and left a hearty "Congratulations" message on her IG profile. I like to see people I know succeeding and making boss moves, so I was genuinely happy. I didn't think much more about the advert, to be honest... that is, until I went on Twitter.

Autumn is Here

Hey you,

How are ya? I hope you had a nice weekend. I was going to continue my cruise vacation posts today, but last weekend, we went to a local pumpkin patch at Berry Farms, and the photos were too nice (in my opinion) that I could not wait to share them! Fall or Autumn is my second favorite season (after Spring). I enjoy seeing the leaves change color - the yellows, oranges, browns and reds of fall are so beautiful to behold. And it also helps that Sweater Weather, and Fall fashion, happens to be my favorite to see. Knee-length and thigh-high boots paired with dresses or jeans, oversize and chunky sweaters over leggings, and layering with crisp leather jackets... LOVE!
