Giveaway :: XNasozi

{shop :: Facebook}

Oh, friends. There is no way we could work our way through a month honoring “Abundant Love” and not showcase a gorgeous throw pillow or two. (If you’ve been reading awhile you are well versed in my adoration of a good throw pillow.) When it comes to spreading the love throughout your house, the simplest and most satisfying way to do so is by adding or changing out the pillows around your home on couches and chair or in corners and nooks. I tend to fall in love pretty hard with my pillows so I am of the “keep adding” ilk. Whatever your fancy, it never hurts to find the latest and greatest!

xnasozi (pronounced “by nasozi”), formerly known as Origins Style by Nasozi, is a home decor and lifestyle studio which utilized gorgeous African textiles. Nasozi herself spent years in the international human rights and social justice fields while still dipping her hand into African textile based creations. What started as a part-time hobby became her full time job and her focus is directed on bringing beauty and love to the world through African design. I am more than slightly obsessed with this Gomis Sparrow Pillow as well as these Recycled Plastic African Bangles. The feeling you get when you browse through the xnasozi shop? That, my friends, is abundant love.

XNasozi is giving away one Giza Throw Pillow to one lucky winner and one Nkrumah Throw Pillow in Pink to a second lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, February 19th. *Giveaway open to US residents only!* Comments now closed…good luck!
Please visit XNasozi and tell us: What are you most proud of yourself for?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, February 24th, to see if you’ve won!

    I am so pround and grately that I waited to meet and marry the person that was made for me. After having 2 broken engagements and another 10 year relationship, I knew within days that my husband was the one I had been waiting for – even though I didn’t want to go out with him in the first place.

    Despite having a lot of fear and some threat to my safety, and my family’s, I was able to follow through and help two other people have a better life.  I was able to love and support them in many ways as they got out of an abusive situation, I was able to help a family reconnect, and I was able to listen without judgement and have care even when it hurt.  I never would have chosen to be in that position, but I really feel I was there for a reason and I am proud that I was able to make a positive difference.  I am proud of overcoming my fears in that situation because it would have been very easy to walk away, to not listen and look deeper, not to ask “how are you, really” & “what’s going on here” and dismiss the first signs of a seriously bad situation, especially when someone feels stuck in something wrong as normal.

    My ability to make others see the unseen: it can be in the hidden potential of their work, or in the lack of understanding for a certain situation, or in the inability to cope with a tragedy. I seem to be able to shine light on those little gold nuggets that would otherwise be invisible, and it is a quality that I find has been of tremendous help to others.

    What I am most proud of myself for is not giving up on my desire to breastfeed my daughter after she was born. I thought it was going to be a piece a cake and it wasn’t. I cried a lot in those first couple of weeks. Beat myself up some but stuck to my guns that I was going to make this work – that I needed to overcome the obstacles we were facing for my daughter. With that perseverance – it happened. I kept telling myself – just one more day – it could be just one more day that this nursing thing clicks between her and I. AND IT DID! I am so proud that I didn’t give up. I exceeded my expectations and I am very proud to say she received “momma’s milk” till her 2nd birthday. This obstacle in life should me I had a lot more perseverance that I thought I had.

    I tend not to feel “proud” of myself.  I don’t know if that’s a weakness or a strength – certainly the constant worrying that I’m not doing the right thing or doing enough is…LESS than ideal (or fun)…but I think…ironically….it’s what I like best about myself.  I’m not proud of it, but I’m happy with it.  I love that I’m always questioning myself and trying to be better.  I love the slightly neurotic me that agonizes over potentially offending people and missing out of what’s truly important in life.  I think I’m kind of adorable in my lack of self-pride, if you know what I mean.  I wouldn’t say I’m humble: but I would say, I’m a seeker.  And that’s the skin I’m comfortable in.

    I am most proud of myself for applying and getting accepted into graduate school! As the first person in my family to go to college, graduate school did not seem like even an option for me.  After many sleepless nights and stress, I made the first step and decided to apply.  With the support from family, friends, and mentors, my long time dream is now a reality!

    Getting my PhD. People tend to assume it requires a lot of intelligence but really just takes more hard war than I ever thought possible. It takes all of you heart, body and soul. But it’s more worth it than anything I’ve ever done.

    I am proud to say that I have always been willing, eager, and determined when it comes to learning anything. Whether it is learning through school, self-taught, or others. It is a trait that most people I believe don’t have because it is difficult to maintain a mindset of seeking out new knowledge constantly and I am proud that I can mostly achieve this mindset.
