PLANNED OUT

Hey guys…

This past week has been a week of reflection for me. How did I get to this point where I am? Once upon a time I was in junior high school and I can remember saying to myself I don’t think I would ever graduate high school, my little brain felt it was a really long time and I would be Dead before graduation. All of the Disappointments I faced, the tears ( most nights I would cry myself to sleep), the challenges, the frustrations, those days I prayed my heart out, the illnesses that almost took my life more than once, the shame, Ridicule, friends that walked away, the failures, the mistakes I made, people who exploited me…. It has really been a journey. Continue reading “PLANNED OUT”

A STRUGGLE

I Will check up on her later, I will do the laundry later, I will do the Assignment later, I will call home later, let me quickly finish this episode of Grey’s Anatomy and I will begin studying. The episode ends and she goes wow 😮 that was interesting I think I should watch the next episode, she stands up and makes herself a bowl of Cereal (the mouth should also be kept busy while the eyes is working). Two hours later she says to herself I can’t study now I am too tired let me take a quick Nap, I will study when I wake up. Eventually she wakes up but it’s late and because she spent the important part of her day doing things which weren’t so important in other words she spent the day procrastinating, she has to stay up very late studying. This person is me. Continue reading “A STRUGGLE”

FIERCE

Hy guys hope you are all doing great?

This gorgeous evening dress or dinner gown (which ever you prefer to call it) is actually my first ever dinner gown ( for real).

Honestly I just love comfort and I have always felt putting on something like this was just a bit too much for me, the dress dragging on the floor, having to raise it up if I needed to use the rest room, fear of stepping on it and tripping over lol .

TRULY SATISFIED?

Hello Beautiful people….

Hope we all had a good weekend? I certainly did.

I was privileged to visit an orphanage this past week with a group of people, we were welcomed by this wonderful, loving, happy kids just at the gate (it was the best feeling ever). We had some time to play with the kids before the event for the day kicked off. One of the highlights of the day for me was when they were preached to about jesus, how much He loved them and wanted to have an intimate relationship with them. When asked if they wanted to have a relationship with Jesus and wanting him to be their friend almost all of them raised up their hands, this was a very emotional and beautiful moment for me, just seeing the smiles on their faces and the genuineness of wanting to know Jesus at that age was really breath taking. In that moment this scripture came to my mind Ecclesiastes 12:1-5. Continue reading “TRULY SATISFIED?”

WHAT IF?

Hello Beautiful people….

Thank God it’s Friday , welcome back to my blog. Today we are gonna reflect and ask ourselves  a lot of WHAT IF’s. Hopefully this rekindles something inside of you.

• What if Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee who is best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web gave up on his idea or didn’t even try?

• What if Thomas Alva Edison best known as the inventor of the light bulb didn’t make a move?

• What if Alexander Graham Bell who is credited with patenting the first practical telephone did nothing?

• What if Charles Babbage the man who originated the concept of a programmable computer also Considered as the “father of the computer” allowed his idea to just slide?

• What if The Wright brothers,who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world’s first successful airplane didn’t try?

• What if cars were never invented?, books never written, no Refrigerators, no microwaves, no televisions, no sophisticated machines to make farming easier,…… Continue reading “WHAT IF?”

ALL ABOUT COMFORT

Hey guys

Welcome back to yet another fashion blog

Suede is that material I don’t think I can ever get enough of, when I like something hmmmm let’s just say I make sure I get enough of that thing. I have on a sleeveless midi length gown.

If I can’t play in it, relax in it, walk freely in it, if I have to keep adjusting things then that dress isn’t for me.

Cinnamon brown is a color which looks great on almost all skin tones so don’t be scared to step out of your color comfort zone

I wanted a comfortable but still elegant look, so I paired it up with heels ( heels always makes a difference)

BEAUTIFUL IN GOD’s TIME

Hello Beautiful people

Thank you for stopping by, I believe we will both learn one or two things today. Let me begin by asking you this question Whose time are you working with? God’s time or your time? Let’s see what the Bible has to say in

Ecclesiastes 3 : 11

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end. (Amplified Version)

While reading this scripture the first thing that caught my attention was the first part “he has made” meaning God isn’t trying to make something happen he has already put everything needed for the journey in place. He knows the end from the beginning . Ok so, if God knows the end from the beginning and has everything all planned out why am I still stuck? Why haven’t I accomplished the goal? Here is the thing whatever goal you have set will only be accomplished in its time (God’s time) not your time. The question is are you willing and patient enough to go through the making process ? Are you willing to trust God enough and just abandon yourself in Him knowing that He wants to build and groom you so that when the dream or vision is finally actualized you are already well equipped. We know the end will be Beautiful but that which makes the end even more beautiful is the process.

Let us look at the butterfly 🦋

Everyone admires the butterfly it is definitely a very beautiful creature but did you know for the butterfly to become this beautiful it had to go through a making process?  Four stages actually.

Every stage has a significance

  1. The egg stage: One of the most amazing things about this stage is the fact that the adult female doesn’t just lay her eggs anywhere she lays it at a specific place that when the egg eventually hatches and it becomes a caterpillar 🐛, it has a food source. (She usually lays on leaves).
  2. The larva a.k.a caterpillar stage: Without this stage there will be no pupa stage, the larva feeds so well so it can mature into a pupa.
  3. The pupa stage: A hard outer skin is formed, within this covering is a butterfly in the making, all that is needed for the butterfly to be able to thrive and bloom in the outside world goes on within the pupa.
  4. The Adult stage: A butterfly is born.

Just imagine for a second if the butterfly decided to skip a step, guess what, there will be no butterfly. Every stage is very much dependent on the other.

Jesus did not come into the world as a fully grown man, he came as a child born through earthly parents, went through all of the things we as humans encounter in our day to day life. Yes the goal was for us to be liberated through his death and resurrection but the process had so much significance it taught us and is still teaching us love, patience, endurance, kindness, forgiveness, peace….the list goes on. Looking back at the account of the children of Israel and the Egyptians I have asked myself several times why God didn’t touch Pharaoh’s heart once and for all, he had to perform so much wonders before the Israelites were finally freed. Praise God no step was skipped because we can look back now, read our bibles and see just how powerful, awesome and how amazing our God is.

Every time I try to do things my own way and work by my time, God always has His way of letting me know the way He thinks isn’t how I think, His ways are not my ways so I am constantly learning to trust Him. We don’t follow God blindly, we walk by faith we just know at the end of the day all things are working together for our Good. The making process is really important to God because it is during this process he gets to groom us and prepare us for the beautiful end.

Every stage comes with its responsibilities and my prayer is that God will teach us to trust his timing, to learn and enjoy our making process weather it is the egg stage, the larva stage, the pupa stage or the adult stage. His grace is sufficient.

Have an amazing week….

stay motivated

ASSUMPTIONS

Hello Beautiful people……

The week is coming to an end and I felt I should share something I learnt this week as you have read from the title, today we will be talking about assumptions. Earlier this week I had a meeting with my spiritual father we talked about a lot of things but one of the things he said which stood out for me was the fact that he said he doesn’t assume things, he gets to know for himself what a thing or person is really about before drawing conclusions. ( of course he wasn’t always like that but he built that character overtime). That got me thinking during the week and wanting to make some changes concerning the way I view things, and this topic was birthed.

Have you ever made an assumption? If you have what impact did it have on you? Please leave your comments down below and share your story.. While you are thinking about the question let us quickly look up the meaning of assumption.

noun
1.
a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof.

every single one of us have or has assumed something either about somebody, a place, a culture, a religious belief, sexuality, occupation, food e.t.c.

I am about to share a very embarrassing story, while writing on this topic I had a picture of that incident I still feel bad about it but hopefully this story touches someone and makes you double check things before making a conclusion.

I really like going to the gym and there was this time my partner and I decided we should get some protein powder to help with our muscle growth, but we kept on hearing about how some people weren’t reacting so well to it and some of them even had some kind of rash all over their body (an allergic reaction) as a result of the protein powder so we both decided not to get the powder. About two months later, We started going to another gym and there was this guy we met there, we have never talked, or even come so close to him. He had some things on his body that looked like spots from a previous rash well we couldn’t really tell because we had never come so close to him , because that might have been awkward. But each time we were at the gym somehow we always ended up talking about that so called rash and how it might have been related to the use of a protein powder. one of this days at the gym I became very curious and went close to him, it turned out he didn’t have spots or rashes on his body, he was just really hairy and from a distance it looked like spots.. I felt really terrible for making an assumption and jumping into a conclusion which I absolutely had no facts on.

We live in a world where people practically live their lives based on assumptions.
It would make a big difference if we make a conscious decision to learn to know people for ourselves not just based on what we have heard, study about a country don’t just conclude a particular country and its citizens are bad just because you met one person who didn’t treat you right, don’t think someone doesn’t like you just because you greeted them and they didn’t give you a reply….and the list goes on.

I have made a lot of assumptions in my life and I am willing to make a change. Are you willing to make a change? It’s never too late to start…

Have a great weekend

JUMPSUIT

What do I wear ? I don’t have what to put on…. that is me almost every day of the week and am sure most ladies would agree with me on this one. look no further because jumpsuits are the way to go. Most of us have problems with how to pair our outfits but with jumpsuits you don’t have to worry about that, you basically have a top and trouser sewn into one piece.

Whatever look you want to go for, I feel you can never go wrong with a jumpsuit.

I saw this exact style on line and I decided to get one made for me.if you are looking to get one designed for you don’t worry I got you the link will be down.

Notice the buttons on one arm, you can decide to unbutton them if you want.

It also comes with a belt which is detachable if you are not about that belt life.

Paired my jumpsuit with heels and hoop earrings

P.s to my male subscribers get a jumpsuit for your girlfriend,sister,friend….they will appreciate it thank you on their behalf 😀😀😀.
