Fashionably Married

A friend sent me this write-up some months back, I came across it today and decided to share it with my loyal readers.

(1) Find the right person: If you are single, you don’t want to ‘mis-marry’. Compromise will only hurt in the end.
If you are married, you have found the right one already;) . If you don’t like what you found, you simply have work to do

(2) Be open to each other: Every time you cover up now, something will stink in the future

(3) Be honest with your spouse: This includes saying what is true but not palatable. Of course, say it in a way that builds & not in a derogatory way

(4) Carry your spouse along in the implementation of your dreams. He/she is equipped to support you through the high and low times

(5) Make out time for your spouse: No matter how busy you get, he/she comes first and then others follow

(6) Be quick to forgive: Absorbed anger is poison you cook to eat alone and die alone. Remember, its the action you disapprove of not the person

(7) Be Committed: through all challenges, all temptations, all disagreements… keep telling yourself it will work cause you have made up your mind that it will.

Am sorry: Most people find it really hard to say those two words and all it does is make a difficult situation easily solved…we all know its hard to give in on those heated arguments but really it won’t take out a strand of hair on our heads. So let’s adopt the act of saying “Am Sorry” even when we are very sure we are right.

And lastly,
Always look good…no man wants to come home to a wife with wrapper tied on her breast. I was soo guilty of this till I gained wisdom (X_X loool).. Be sure to make your hair,dress well and stay fit…If u aint sure of how to go about this that’s why we are here..let’s hook u up with a look or two ๐Ÿ˜‰

When your mind says give up, hope whispers one more try.

A thought crossed my mind some few weeks back and I already shared it with a group of designers but thought to share it with you my dear readers as well.

Why would Nigerians rather patronize international brands than our own Nigerian brands even when we deliver as good or even better products.
I was discussing with a client who said she loves Nigerian designs but won’t buy them cos they are too expensive and she gave an example of tops/blouses she buys in the uk which go for between the range of N1500 and N3000 only for her to get here and find Nigerian products at higher rates..

How do we handle these issues,that is,how do we give you the best of quality and yet sell at affordable prices??

Here are some answers I could come up with for now:

Electricity: In most countries,they have electricity 24/7 and here in Nigeria we rarely have power for 4hours non-stop. We have to run a generating set the whole day and as we know fuel is now gold in a country that produces it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ We spend close to N2000 to N4000 per day on fuel just to meet up with our lovely clients orders.
Please let’s appeal to our government to give us the electricity they’ve been promising us for years ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Fabrics/Materials: The rate at which fabrics and materials are expensive now is crazyyyyy and for some of us who want to give our clients the very best have to go for expensive fabrics at all cost. Some of us even go the extra length as traveling out of the country to get quality fabrics in large quantity.
If only we have more companies producing fabrics here in Nigeria but am sure we’ll get there very soon.

If you’ve got more answers on ways to solve this issue at hand kindly drop your comments.

Finally,let’s be proud of our own and patronize our Nigerian designers ๐Ÿ™‚
