Hello and welcome to my blog. Another Sunday and thankful for God mercy and grace.

Hello it’s me again

I must say I do love the weekend: time to rest and refresh my mind for the week ahead.

So Sundays sermon was taken from Romans 8:1-8 which is Justification of those who believe in God through Christ Jesus.

Those who believe in God through Christ Jesus have been declared to be not guilty based on what Christ has done for us on the cross. The price has been paid by His Son Jesus Christ. We have received an assurance we are His children. We will share on Christs glory as a result the Spirit intercede for us. Glory to God.

The look

So I tried to do a green and black eye shadow. For my lips I am wearing BarryM lip liner in plum and L’Oréal’s lip infallible ‘The Bigger The Better’. For my foundation, I mixed L’Oréal’s Deep cool and Lancome’s new foundation in shade 16 so Y because I couldn’t find  my L’Oréal truematch in dark coffee.  The eye shadow I used is MUA cosmetics, bare minerals mascara and gel eye liner.

The outfit

I wore a green and black dress given to me by my mother. The dress is from Oasis and I must say it fits better now that I have a few pounds on.

 

That’s all for today. Until next time stay blessed and have a fruitful wheel.

IMG_20180813_075155_660

Here is another nutritious breakfast full of vibrant colours and essential minerals.

For today I have red, yellow and green bell peppers and Shredded Courgette which I tossed in the pan for a bit. I also have diced tomatoes and scrambled eat with chorizo.

And as always I have my greek yogurt with chia seeds, honey, peach, blueberries and Strawberries.

What a good way to start the week. I like how my breakfast has transformed over the months and all this ideas I got from going on one holiday. Sometimes it goes to go away to a different surroundings for fresh ideas.

Until next time, happy Monday.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another all dressed up and ready for church. First the word.

The Sermon 

Incense were left burning as a sweet smelling savour to God in the temple. The fragrance symbolises the acceptance of sacrifices. They represented the basis on which the sacrifice could be made. It’s Jesus’ sinless life that makes Jesus sacrifice a sweet smelling savour and pleasing to God. In essence no other sacrifice can top God’s own to redeem made to Himself.

The look

I used the BarryM Meteor Storm pallette again to create my makeup took. I am not sure if I have mentioned this before but I do not wear eyelashes so my makeup tend to look very basic.

 

For my outfit I opted for this floral skirt from asos and blouse from H & M, the shoes are from asos from their Truffle Collection. I purchased the skirt a few years back. I have currently made austerity measures and so I am not allowed to go on asos website lest I get tempted and spend money I do not have. 😁

 

When the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Unfortunate it look summer is coming it an end and autumn is slowly revealing it head. So I am glad I have worn all my floral but I will still wear these in winter if I can that is.

So this is it. Thanks for stopping. Until next time, it’s bye from me.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another all dressed up and ready for church. First the word.

The sermon

So the sermon was about God’s glory in man dignity. It was about the fall of man and God’s determination to bring him back to Himself. Our relationship with Him was destroyed but rebuilt through the death, ressurection and acsension of Christ Jesus. The question was taken from Psalm 8 when David ask God ‘What is man that You are mindful of him?’

 

The look

Last week I did say I was going to use the BarryM palette again. I have another look in mind and will use it again to see if I can achieve that look. I wore the look when I was on holiday recently.

IMG_20180729_204451

I was wearing coral Trouser and I had a colour to match it so I was glad I could make use of it.

I recently went on holiday so I have gone a bit dark because it looks like my MAC foundation is a hit too bright for me now. I probably won’t need it till winter now.

I wore this coral Trouser from asos. I have had this for a while but it was too big so I rarely wore it. The top is from H&M Australia and the shoes are from Bank. I am not too sure if Bank still exist but I have not seen an outlet in a while.

I believe that’s it for today. Until next time, have a lovely week.

Is this the perfect selfie or what? The hair was done by myself.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This post is a very late one regarding my look last Sunday.

First the sermon

The sermon was about being justified by God and how can we be clean if we are born of a woman.The answer is through Christ Jesus God has made a way for all. It is up to you to accept His love and forgiveness.

The look & outfit

I had just come back from holiday and I intended to be floral but I changed my outfit in the end. So I wore this New Look floral blouse, Primark midi bodycon skirt with a slit I bought a few years ago and Nine West Shoes which were my birthday presents.

Whilst on holiday my friend gifted me with her BarryM palette which is what I used as it had bright colours to compensate the blouse.

This is the palette my friend gifted me.

The palette is called Meteor Storm has the below colours.

@jaybeeshow thank you. The below is what I managed to do with the palette, I must admit the colours looks brighter in real life.

That’s it for today’s post. Let me know what you think of my look and the outfit. I will use the palette again as I feel it has a lot of potential so stay tuned. I used L’Oréal True Match foundation in dark coffee and Mac studio finish concealer in NW45 which reminds me I have a £25 birthday gift voucher. I am looking to buy their bright lip colours. My lip colour in these pictures is BarryM matte me up lip paint in Signature. I did line my lips with BarryM lip pencil in plum too. Finally I used bnye luxury powder in Topaz to set my under eye.

Until next time. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is about last Sundays look which is well late, as always, but it’s better late than never. Last Sunday’s sermon was about God’s providence and the question Job raised was shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive  evil? This is a question you should ponder upon.

The look

Since it’s summer I am playing with colours with my clothes and my makeup pallette. I wore this look for my 29th birthday and thought let’s recycle. The skirt is from Asos and the stop and shoes are from top shop.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the makeup I used MUA cosmetics bright vibrant colours and their single midnight blue pallette.

For my lips I used L’Oréal infallible lip gloss in the bigger the better and lined my lips with BarryM lip pencil in plum. I also keep reaching for my L’Oréal True Match in dark coffee.

That’s it for today until next time it bye. Let me know if you are trying bright and bold colours this summer or nude and neutral colours.

A week in review #LetsEat

Cooking, Five A Day, Food, Healthy Food, Healthy Meals, Lunch, One Of Five A Day, Uncategorized, YouTube

Hello and welcome to my blog. In the blogpost i have my a week in review. it is long over due i know so i have come to you with some of the meals i have been having for lunch.

 

IMG_20180626_130729_912

This is a Lamb burger and oven baked chips.

 

IMG_20180627_132819_407

This is a salmon salad which as avocado, tomatoes, olives, cucumber and bell peppers.

 

IMG_20180625_130523_204

one of my go to meals when i am bored with almost everything. Salmon and a variety of vegetables.

 

IMG_20180621_132711_534

This is salmon and wholemeal couscous. I mix the couscous in mixed vegetable and asparagus.

 

IMG_20180622_132432_446

Here we have white potatoes with salmon and vegetables.

 

As you can see i have vegetables in all of these lunches that i have over the past week. This is to ensure that i am getting the nutrition i need from food and as we already know fruits and vegetable are packed with the essential minerals, nutrients and vitamins require for the body to stay healthy.

I strongly believe that if you have a balance diet rich in various vitamins and nutrients you are less likely to fall ill. I choose my ingredients carefully and research on the vitamins i can get from it, if the food item provides no nutritional value then i will have to cut it out of my diet.

I will end this blog here and until next time it bye from me.

I used Juvia’s Place pallette: Masquerade and Saharan to create this look.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s blog is a fashion and beauty blog. It was a friend’s surprise birthday dinner in London on Saturday so I went to help her celebrate. I was not too sure what to wear but managed to find something I purchased a few years back. As always reaching into my fashion archives to rescue the day.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What I wore is this gold on black dress from ASOS and black and leopard print heels from new look. I think I underestimated how short the dress was.

The birthday girl opted for a leather pencil skirt, kimono-like blouse and gold heel sandals. Her makeup was natural with a hint of eyeliner for a more bold eyes.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is all about my look on Sunday. Last Sunday was fathers day and the sermon was about fathers unfortunately I had to do a few things during the sermon so I guess you can call me Martha, I missed the message. I wanted to keep it light and natural on Sunday partly because I was very tired. As part of the ushering team we wear uniforms every Sunday and last Sunday’s s was black and grey suit.

A few full shot
