Starting to thrive from working remotely because I have picked up new hobbies- videography and gotten better at old ones- photography. I also love seeing what other people have picked up and seeing them thrive. It’s so inspiring!
PS: Trying on several teddy lingerie and shocked that they still fit but we move

What have you given up voluntarily or involuntarily because of quarantine?
One of the things I have given up so far is alcohol. I drink in restaurants and outings but I have not been able to since quarantine and I have not sought it out as well.
Do I miss social gatherings? Yes! Do I miss alcohol? Not really. I might have a beer after I post this though because now I am thinking about it 😂...
The saree is my favorite traditional attire- I know my Yoruba Mother will slap me for saying this. I wore one in India and I feel so lucky to be able to wear a Sri Lankan saree as well. The compliments I got from Sri Lankan women in this attire was overwhelming! Being able to appreciate their culture and take part in it is so special to me!
Also, how lush is this tea plantation? A trip to Sri Lanka is not complete without tea! Walking around the tea plantation is an experience of its own. Even better if you get to pick tea leaves or watch the women who do it. Check out my stories for more on my visit to the tea plantation....
I miss visiting Mexico several times a year as if it was behind my house.
I am pretty sure I would have visited at least twice by now if not for the lockdown.
Cheers to currently visiting Mexico in the spirit by looking at #archives haha.
I think trips within a country of residence would be popular after lockdowns are over. I would definitely be taking advantage of exploring the US more. Top states on my list are California, Colorado, Utah and Oregon. What states are on your US bucketlist?...
I have a sweet tooth and I am currently craving ice cream and pasteries!
Double tap if you can relate!

The typical racist hates being challenged, they hate seeing changes in favor of minorities and they are hypocrites.
Some of the non-allies looted businesses in the guise of allyship but black people took the blame! The typical racist absolutely hates it when they are called out on this and many other atrocities perpertuated by their beloved America (slavery, exploitation, killings, lootings, the list is endless). We are tired and we are ready for change!
The protests, social media posts, comments, donations and many more are impacting change!
We are experiencing history in the making!
Keep it up!

⬅️⬅️ SWIPE LEFT FOR A HASHTAG GUIDE <SHARE AND SAVE>
If you are a blogger, business owner or aspiring to be any of those and not using hashtags to reach a wider audience, you are missing out!
I shared my insights on Instagram stories few weeks ago and alot of you saw my reach from hashtags (8K - 19K+) depending on the post. Reach = Number of people that see your post.
I was asked to show my hashtag strategy and I shared it on my stories few days ago (can be found on my highlights).
For those who missed my stories, here is a summary.
Let me know if you found this helpful ❤️...
Can you believe that this is Uganda?!
I could barely believe it myself!! Africa has ALOT of gems that need to be discovered!
One of the gems and the country that surprised me most is Uganda!
It is one of the cheapest countries I have ever visited and absolutely green and beautiful!
In Uganda, visiting Lake Bunyonyi is a must as well as taking a cruise down the Nile and Gorilla trekking.
Gorillas can only be seen in Uganda, Rwanda and DRC so if you have the $$$ ($600), I recommend this activity for your travel bucketlist....
I thought summer was dead in 2020 because of all that’s been going on but maybe it’s not! I had the best day out in Galena, IL today!
