Happy New Year!!!!, OMG It's February.

Happy Belated New Year Everyone,

I know I'm the last person saying Happy New Year considering we are already in the month of February, but just like the image below says, I feared that my wishes on New Year might get lost amidst all others so wishing you a little late; but better late than never, right?


I trust you've all been on to a fantastic start in 2015 and if you are in Nigeria I'm sure you've also been caught in the middle election debates. Well I have been up to a crazy 7 day routine and trying to see how to find the perfect balance between Work, Blogging, Locitude, The Locitude Studio, Relationships, my dreams and Life in general.

In finding balance, I realise that one has to look back to see where we are coming from to see how far we have come and  where we are going. So this is to say a Big THANK YOU to everyone who in one way or another has contributed to "Locitude". My list is endless, but I would go ahead to mention a few people starting with my boyfriend Akan Umoden for not letting me cut my hair, Dabs of NaijaHairCanGrow and Savvy Chic, Deola Ibikunle, Atilola of African Naturalistas, Bassey Ikpi, Helen Orimolade, Alma Chukwu, John Iseghohi of Rulz, Kazeem Onafuwa, Damilola Lawal, Niyya Tenee of Locs Revolution, Qochemist, Babajide Aroyewun, Deyemi Akande of Black and Loud, Segun Adewusi, Inyang Otu, Oghogho Kamah, Segun Focus of Hair Villagers, Seyi Allen, Omotayo Oshodi, Ani Simon-Hart; everyone who has let me share their loc journey at the Locitude Studio, everyone who made Locitude a name to remember in 2014 and my mom who is now a loc head (who would have thought). Please if I left your name out know that I love you and I'm grateful still. :).

There are dreams for 2015 and I'm battling whether or not to list them out here or list them out independently so none of them loose attention they deserve. I'll just go ahead and list stuff that's in the pipeline.
