With Bells on Her Toes…fashion is timeless

I find pleasure in visiting the souks because it feeds my literal interest in people watching as well as window shopping at 0% cost which is a major social skill to acquire. For obvious reasons fashion jewelry automatically makes me think of this nursery rhyme:

Ride a white horse

to Banbury cross

to see a white lady

upon a white horse

with rings on her fingers

and bells on her toes

she shall have music

wherever she goes

 

Three weeks ago some sister friends visited from Nigeria and a visit to Dubai is not complete without going to the gold souk to look at shimmery, jaw-dropping trinkets.

One of them is a fashion entrepreneur who came to restock her merchandise for sale back home and from what I know, the current recession of Nigerian economy hasn’t stopped our women from looking good. They’ve found ways to cheaper alternatives from expensive trinkets as well as fashionable items like sunglasses, bags, wrist watches  all at wholesale prices.

So, I got to take them to the Souk and was their privileged escort for the price of good old-fashioned catching up, a bit of gossip, lots of laughter and street food 🙂

I live in a mega city where it’s not strange to see women dressed in eye-popping finery. Fancy trinkets are all over the place and can become yours at the drop of your plastic. You can go for the high-end fashion to the low-end, it’s your choice.

However, I don’t believe that one should rob the bank in order to own lovely pieces and look good – not all trinkets that glitter is gold. Like every other woman, I love to look chic and trendy. Looking good makes you feel good and you can do so in a thrifty way.

There are smart and efficient ways to acquire cheerful fashionable pieces through wholesale enterprises like wholesale jewelry China.

Tips to consider when purchasing wholesale jewelry

What’s the market cost? Compare prices with parallel vendors

Do you qualify for wholesale purchase? There are online suppliers that will sell single pieces, many overseas vendors sell at wholesale prices.

Negotiate prices, it’s an open market

Don’t be afraid to contact the seller to ask questions for more clarity.

Think of your payment mode – PayPal, Credit/Debit card

Compare shipping, return policies, customer ratings, and feedback comments.

Can your goods be insured?

Educate yourself on how jewelry is made and enjoy the learning.

So, do let me know when you are coming over, I’ll be looking forward to the cup of coffee, some old-fashioned conversation, and window shopping.

3 strategic partners already! Just Wow!

A couple of days ago, I sent out a post indicating my interest in having strategic blog partners and between you and I, I thought that I would probably have to publish and republish the post a million times before it would receive any sort of response, if at all.

To my delight, my supposition has been proven wrong.

I now have 3 fab partners and several more inquiries.

I am tickled pink and coloured in smiles.

Thank you, dear folks, for your good will 🙂

My strategic partners so far can be found on my side bar and here they are below.

Do take a peek. I run with the right crowd of good people 🙂

P.S. If you are interested in partnering with me, you can contact me through my contact page or email.


Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Enchant me with your expressive eyes, that crinkles in laughter as you speak

that I may find myself ever caught between

the reflections of your pupils and there shall I remain.

*an excerpt of my poem*

Partners WANTED!!…

In this journey, you simply can’t go it alone. A lot of times you need to team up with others to achieve certain goals and that is one of the essence and rules of public engagement.

Blogging and writing are public engagement. Yes indeed, we write for ourselves, but when we lack readers, after a while, our zeal wanes.

This is a topic that I have given much reflection over the past few months and as a matter of fact, I put up a page on my header that reads ‘I am for hire.’

I am sourcing for blog partners who are interested in renting prime advert space on my sidebar which will be at a very nominal fee and arrangements can be made for convenient durations of 3 months, 6 months, 1 year…

What are the benefits?

  • It will be a growth focused team effort.
  • A mutually beneficial endeavour.
  • The blog’s logo/URL will be hosted on my sidebar under the title ‘My partners’ and a click will take an interested party directly to your site.
  • A weekly feature of partners post.
  • The high possibility of more visibility.
  • As I search for more room for growth, I take you along with me.
  • It will support me to maintain my blog.

Inspired Beacon is my first partner and if you look to my sidebar you’ll see the logo nicely emblazoned there. I also find that I have a lot to learn from Kaylaa Blackwell the blog author.

Asides from brilliant, inspiring posts that she publishes, she’s setting up an enviable e-commerce store. Inspired Beacon is a forward-focused blog and I admire such entrepreneurship and positivism.

Will you take a chance on me?

Would you like to work with me?

I’m sure that it will be a worthwhile opportunity for growth.

You can send me an email: JacquelineObyIkocha@gmail.com or use my contact page on the header.

I look forward to hearing from you and my door is open for suggestions.

Sincerely,

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

Out of the silent breath

 

Never leave me lonely

With words left unsaid

You walk away into the dark

Like a mist, that melts away.

Let me introduce you to a Soul Sister…LaTasha Robinson.

SAFETY FIRST

Few weeks into blogging, Tasha is among the first beautiful friends I made in this place. In a short blogging time, she became a soul sister.

Always there, supporting, sharing, uplifting to the point that I know if I get the opportunity to be back in the U.S. she’s one lady who I am waiting to meet in flesh.

I admire her down-to-Earth nature, resilience, wisdom and in a business dominated by the opposite sex, I admire her guts and appreciate her friendship.

Thank you, lady T  and here’s a single rose of appreciation for you.

Rose[1]

Hi, Friends!

My name is Tasha. I am a wife, mother, homeschooler and entrepreneur. I wear many hats, but those four are at the top of the list.20150605_112523

If you’re a parent as well, I know one of the top concerns that you have for your children is for their safety and well-being.

Nothing else trumps that. No amount of money, material things or possessions.

Being the mama bear that I am, I have made it my life’s purpose to not only prepare my children to protect themselves, but to also educate and equip others to do the same through awareness, dialogue and a host of many different self-defense products.

What is self-defense?

Self-defense is the ability to protect yourself from physical harm. Despite what you may think, the best form of self-defense is mental, not physical. Knowing when to remove yourself from a situation or how to de-escalate one is far better than any kick or punch that you may have learned. Hand-to-hand combat or self-defense devices should always be a last resort option.

Why is self-defense important?

Would you wait until you nearly drown before learning to swim? You could, but by then it might be too late.

The same goes for self-defense, if you wait until you’re in a life-threatening situation to realize how important it is, you may not get another chance at it.
The plus side is that you lose absolutely nothing by being prepared to protect yourself.

Why I love what I do.

I am proud of the fact that my products save lives. I can go to sleep every night knowing that I am contributing to society in a positive way. There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction in that. Everything that I sell, from Tasers to pepper spray…are all non-lethal. So you too, are able to sleep at night.

Out of the silent breath

Dance to your heart’s delight my African child, until echoes of your stamping feet, beating heart; bright eyes, smiling lips; and waving hands, resonates over and over like thunder claps, reverberating throughout the Universe.

Just dance.
