SOMETIMES CALM

Monday, 30 March 2015

I've come to realize that in present times, we take things too serious and that has put us in a state of constant uneasiness and the need to get everything checked.
lately I'm mastering the act of remaining calm no matter what, which is like taking a fish from water to live on land, but I realize it pays off. 
being calm rejuvenates and brings its own solutions at will, it reduces the stress of life hassles and make you realize the beauty in your environment 
thanks to cassiedaves for bringing the blog mojo back, because i've really stressed and a little peep at the link, put me back on track

WE ARE ALL UNCOOL

Friday, 27 March 2015

hello Everyone, so I was asked by the beautiful .desireeiyama.com to work on a mini project                    "WE ARE ALL UNCOOL" its aim, to make each and everyone of us realize that we aren't all as perfect and the social media world is only a part of our lives and that we have others that aren't really shared.

so I decided to piece down seven of my not so cool side and you can follow the link above and see more of those who participated

1. I don't get my work done timely (I procrastinate, I did for this project)
2. I don't like my natural hair that much (thats why you don't see any post about it)
3. I backslide (whew God don't like ugly, working on this seriously)
4. I think a lot about things, most of which are beyond my control
5. I plan at the dying minute (not cool)
6. I wish, I could write well (I've problem with continuity)
7. there are more uncool things about me I probably won't say 

                                       



BREAK FAST THOUGHT(I'M NOTHING WITHOUT GOD)

Thursday, 26 March 2015

Hello FAM, I've not been consistent with my blog and its because of my work schedule, but I'll try my best to update when I can
Today i'll be sharing about how my busy schedule has made me understand better who God is..
see, I've tried to think I could survive by my own strength and knowledge lately, but I realized that nothing I did was pleasing and in some ways there were no improvements and then I came across a verse John 15:5 NIV
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Which made me realize that, I was doing everything wrong by relying on my own strength and that without God i was nothing, and i'm currently learning how to go on my knees when I,m overwhelmed and learn that sometimes things are above our powers to control and

ECC 9:11 says NLT 
I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.

breakfast I had at my cousins, its always a great time to have lunch with fam, and trust me I couldn't finish all on my plate.. have a blessed weekend and pray for Nigeria, this weekend is our elections and I know we will remain one and no plan of the evil one will come to pass 

KAYMU FASHION WEEK AND A COLLABORATION

Saturday, 21 March 2015

Hello Fam, one of the side benefits of being a blogger, is to be able to work with brands and help promote creative ideas that would benefit the art world.
and that opportunity, availed itself, had the opportunity to partner with KAYMU  for the
 KAYMU FASHION WEEK and I snagged this floral two piece item, which I love since its just time for spring... and paired it with my Asos heel sandals that was posted HERE 
wish you all a beautiful weekend and a God filled day

STICKING TO WHITE

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

Hello Fam, I must apologize for my long absence, but you see life isn't always as beautiful and  easy as wearing white. the work load i've hasn't given me much time to sit behind my laptop(meanwhile I don't have one at the moment). so you can only imagine, and then having a fast internet service comes at its own price.. I could go on and on. but if God has not been on my side, the story would have been much different..

the weather in Nigeria isn't so breezy either, the heat is so terrible, so a white outfit comes handy.. 


 you can tell me how you have been fam, ,missed you all. P.S there is a long story to finding this pair of cute pants that would be told later

KEEPING IT CASUAL

Thursday, 5 March 2015

Hello Fam, one of the major challenge of Ankara is finding ways to play round it without looking too traditional, well after making this wide leg trouser(I'm attached to making trousers lately) I decided to opt for a more casual look, what do you guys think?

thought I'll share a passage from Gods word
Psalm 91:14-16(MSG)
"If you'll hold on to me for dear life", says God, "i'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll get to know and trust me.
Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times;
i'll rescue you, then throw you a party.
i'll give you a long life,
give you a long drink of salvation

DETAILS ABOUT MY HAIR

Tuesday, 3 March 2015

I know its probably late, but I feel like I should give details about my recent hair, which I've had for about a month. I take my hair seriously, infact it defines a womans look before her clothes does, or so I think.
I sat down for a whole day because of the length of the hair, which falls way back and is a bit heavy, I used six packets of the small pack of expression, picture is below.. hope this was helpful
