    Simple Guide to having a Daily Blog Routine.

    The best thing about having a routine is the seamless flow it accords us daily, weekly or even monthly. Routines help us know what activities need to be done ahead of time. We have routines for the baby, for our meals, for working out e.t.c. If our blogs are half as important as these other things, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a daily blog routine as well. While routines can be so boring, it is encouraged to still prepare a checklist for our daily activities. We might not strictly adhere to the timing but it allows us prioritise and still get things done eventually. One of those…

    Pulse for August 2017

    The first of every month is always very exciting for me. I feel I have just crossed a milestone and should celebrate. Today isn’t any different. I feel elated and thankful for the Gift of Life, Good Health and Loved ones. I am also excited about Phaytea’s Pulse and it’s lovely readers. Thank you all for stopping by and contributing, it makes the effort worth it. As I did in May, June and July, I will be sharing my Pulse for August but first here’s a rundown of how I fared in July: Post Scheduling & Pictures: I still write on impulse but the blog dairy helps. I get to put down my thoughts…

    I am sorry….not sorry

    Hi hi It’s raining this morning and I like…. How do you feel when it rains? If you haven’t read ‘Can you stand the rain?, you definitely should. Did you have a good week? Mine turned out nice except for one ‘not so good’ experience. So i recently had an encounter that suddenly threw me off track. I was hurt but a few tears and venting to the right person got me back on track. Bottom line, I finally got an apology but then…is that it? Well, i am not asking for chocolates and roses (which isn’t a bad idea by the way) to go with an apology but personally,…

    Can you stand the rain? 

    and I’m asking literally….. If you are anything close to me, then you are already humming to New Edition’ s ‘Can you stand the rain’.  I love songs that kind of ‘speak to your soul’ (is that a weird description?)…. but I totally fell in love with this song again in the movie ‘The Best Man Holiday’. That was my best movie for a long time. Talking about rain, do you like the rainy season?  It’s been raining a lot in Lagos (it’s the season so there’s no suprise at all) and I think it’s beginning to tell on my usual active self. For instance, I always want to be…

    Phayview #3: Let's indulge in Mum Stuff.

    Hi hi,  Are we having lovely day? If you have been checking the internet/social media pages then you must have noticed or heard it’s Mother’s day.  Whoop! Whoop!! I love how passionate we get about Women/Mother’s. I have a very special bond with my mum so it’s no surprise if get to talk about her a lot. We share so much and she’s just the perfect bestie, mum, prayer partner, advicer, anyone would ask for.  Pardon my seconds of mushiness but Mother’s are just the best and we will be acknowledging that fact today on Phayview. Please check Phayview#1 and Phayview#2 if you missed it the previous weeks. I’ll like to repost this article…

    Mindfulness: 7 things you do without knowing it leaves a bad impression.

    …..or maybe you do know, but can’t be bothered…. Never mind what haters say, ignore them till they fade away… T.I and Rihanna had a good time getting us psyched up with the song ‘Live your Life’. I totally love that song by the way, but unless you plan to live in space with aliens, you should care a tiny bit about how you live your life and avoid being quick to assume someone is a ‘hater’ (This word is used loosely these days). How about we look inward? As individuals, we have different personality traits which reflects in our temperament, character, thinking, speaking and understanding. We also have the…

    Bloggers Recognition Award

    Whoop Whoop!!!! We have our First Bloggers Recognition Award, plenty thanks to the lovely Sheetal for the nomination. Totally excited as this means you are reading Phaytea’s Pulse. Thank you for the comments, likes and for sharing on your social media platforms too. What!!!! You make me want to keep getting better at this. Sending plenty hugs to go round. How i started Phaytea’s Pulse? it’s funny but I started this blog in 2011 just as a young girl who was internet savvy and loved social media. Creating a blog then seemed like a ‘nice to have’, I guess that was the reason for the inconsistent posts. …oh yeah!!! and there was school,…
