Lifestyle || Updates On Ash #4

Whoop whoop!!! I’m finally on holiday! Which means no more mediocre posts and silly excuses for being inconsistent.

I want to share a few updates with you guys as its been a while and I know this is one of your favorite segments on the blog.

How are you all doing by the way?

As usual, settle in and read on what I’m up to currently:

Wearing :

Really light clothes. Mostly T-shirts & leggings. The weather is getting warmer and I’m prepared to wear shorts soon! 

Admiring :

A lot of women who have fought through patriarchy and succeeded on their own.

Wishing  :

That I had enough money to travel to all the places I want to this summer. But I’ll make do with what I have. My summer must not waste. I have a travel list I want to share but I’m afraid I would not fulfill it and then I’ll just be another disappointment to you guys.

Determined to  :

Keep my promises and stop being lazy to achieve things I really want to. Also, to manage my time well. I have taken on a lot of things and if I don’t try to stop being lazy, I might just mess it all up.

Craving :

A lot of sleep lately. I don’t know what it is. Did I get bit by a tse-tse fly?

Excited to :

See how my summer holiday  turns out. I’m pretty sure this would be one of my best summer ever!

Feeling :

Pretty good about myself. I feel overwhelmed sometimes by the amount of things I have to get done but I just have to relax & take it one step at a time.

Reading :

A lot of articles and short stories on the internet, especially Tumblr. I love Tumblr because that’s where I always find “deep poetry” & writings and I want to get back into that kind of writing. My favorite writer right now is Alexandra Elle and this quote is one of my fave from her  book, “Neon Soul” .

Planning :

To just get my life on track and increase my productivity in all aspects of my life. Who knows any good tips on time management? I’m interested to know.

Watching :

Currently watching “MTV Shuga” on YouTube and I’m wondering how I didn’t discover this show since! I mean I always heard of it but I never took the time to actually watch it. It’s amazing! I watched MTVshuga naija and I loved it the most. Just started the “down south” and it’s pretty interesting too!

Listening to :

Arctic Monkeys – this is a rock band I used to listen to a lot in 2014/2015 but somehow my taste changed and now I’m back to them. You should check them out if you’re into rock music or you just want something to listen to.

Irritated by :

Instagram and its new algorithm which is affecting a lot of engagement. As bloggers, we depend on these ‘numbers’ for brand collaborations and to get more opportunities. So I don’t understand why Instagram thinks that the highest liked posts should be the more prioritized ones than the ones I actually follow. Also, what is it with the increasing amount of sponsored posts and advertising? It’s just not fun anymore. I’m so sad about this because Instagram is my most used social media platform.

Unsure about :

The haircut I want to get this summer. I want to cut my hair off because I have started losing hair in my middle head and I do t understand why (maybe I’m just getting bald?) haha. But I’m unsure if I should cut if off or just change my hair care routine.


And that’s it so far, this week has been surprisingly random and lovely too.

What have you been up to lately? Comment below!

  1. I like the format of your posts. A great way to get across what is going on with both yourself and your blog. As for Tumblr, I never really ‘got it’ the first time I looked – I guess I should re-visit… πŸ™‚

  4. Haha. Great post πŸ’–. Literally also irritated with Instagram, (also, I have just followed you as ‘umbalenhle_k’). And what irritates me more are the blogging pages that follow you and unfollow you as soon as you follow. It’s so demotivating. Enjoy your holiday, I am also on holiday and I’m so glad I get to sleep every hour πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—
