Fashionpreneur

Here’s the full interview..

Q.
You’re are welcome to our August 2018 parentinggist parent of the month segment. We will be delighted to meet our guest.

A.
My name is Njideka Eboji. A lot of my friends call me Maria. I am a wife, mum to two great kids, a fashionpreneur…( Laughs) I’m a whole lot of things but basically and professionally these I have mentioned.

Q.
That’s great ma, a wife,  a mum and a fashionpreneur… Where do we start from?  Tell us more about your fashionpreneur,  we will come back “kitchen and other room” business later.

A.
It’s basically how I speak about my fashion business. Personally, i think being fashionable is life and life is in every little detail. Detailing for me is everything and putting life into an individual;in the clothing department, is what I do. I make bespoke and ready to wear dresses. In my course of living my passion, I also identified how indifferent most people are to the beauty of their bedsheets;I inclusive, so I thought also to address this. I sell lace fabrics and bedsheets also.

Q.
I love fashion but I am practically too busy to pay very special attention to it,  so how do assist women like me?

A.
Well, I would ask, do you love fashion or are you just fascinated? by it, do you see it just as a means? Can you stay awake 3nights in a row and still be fulfilled and happy? How do you feed your passion? I had the opportunity to work in a bank for almost a decade and during my work there, I used to draw a lot and surf the net for designs and all so I was kept abreast trends in the industry. I also love cooking and baking. Infact I came to that point of ‘mental block’, I had the most difficult.

Q.
Smiles,  I love fashion I mean dressing and looking good,  I am not a drawing fan,  nadaa.

A.
. ..time trying to really figure out my deep passion being an individual that strives to be very good in everything I venture into; I knew how to do a lot of things in bits and all. At that point, my sister in-law;infact a mum, a big sister, a friend all rolled up into this one individual, called and said to me, ‘Njideka, you should go into fashion’ All the while, I was making designs for her and so I said YES. It was something I could lose my sleep over and not get pissed😝. So yes, feed what

…you love anyway, despite constraints.

Oh ok! To dressing and looking good,oh yes, I totally understand; a lot of mums are having this constraint. I would say get a personal stylist or a friend that would help in your wardrobe selection from time to time.  Create a routine with them. You could make them come to you when you are home rather than go to them so it saves you time so you get to do your chores and attend to your fashion needs at the same time and achieve your desired look despite the time constraints.

Q.
With all these energy and passion for fashion how do you balance it with home.. Hubby and children?

A.
Phew! Truth is, I really don’t know. I just know God has been faithful and He’s been my strength. I have created a routine such that everything from dawn to dusk is scheduled and I adhere strictly to it. Hubby has been supportive and my kids have been awesome; they do a whole lot of chores now. I am just grateful!🙏

Q.
So what message do you have for mothers out there,  who are struggling with balancing family, work and life

A.

Don’t beat yourself up! You can’t have it all. You are putting in your best so be rest assured it is sufficient. God has got you 💯.

Q.

What are the most important and the interesting things you have learnt from being a  mother to two lovely kids?

A.
Most important, hmm, that mothers are powerful. We are packed with this crazy high level of energy. Being a mother have availed me the opportunity to see true beauty, being there for my little ones in their high and low moments, informing their fears with love, watching them grow with so much character and strength despite their weaknesses. Being their greatest cheerleader 😁Being part of moulding a being is a great privilege and I thank God for that blessing everyday.
