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.

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.

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.

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

All set and ready for church

Hello and welcome to my blog. Yesterday we had a lovely weather in the UK. The sun was out so it was hot.

The sermon was about based on questions the disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24. When shall these things be and what are the signs of thy coming? It was concluded that it is not our job to try and read signs of His second coming to to focus on our responsibility as Christians and live a life faithful before God. Remind me of R C Sprolls phrase “To live all of life Coram Deo” which means to live life in the presence of God even though you don’t see Him.

The look

As the sun was out, I decided to wear another african print dress. See the slide below. This dress was gifted to me and as always the shoes are old new look shoes.

The look: makeup

The eye shadow is MUA copper and another colour similar to the greenish dots in my dress. I used MAC foundation in NW55 this time, I do not use this that often because it for special occasion as it a bit pricey. The lip colour is mainly BarryM lip pencil in chocolate. I say mainly because I used another old Mac lip gloss and bare minerales mascara on the lashes. I wanted to tone down the colour since the dress was very bright and cheerful lol.  I am not a big fan of lashes as I usually wear glasses although I have a few of them. I was wearing contact lenses in this picture so if my eyes look a bit strange that is the reason. The aim is now to play with colours on the eyes while still keeping it natural.

That’s all for this blog. Until next time, stay blessed.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today, I am taking you right back to Sunday and by that you know this blog is well late. The sermon was what I needed to hear. It was about how Paul’s eyes were set on Christ who assured him many times when he was in prison that He will be with him.

He was aware of the sovereignty of Christ Jesus so he was not shaken. This teaches us that the more you know Christ the better you are able to face tough challenges.

The entire look:

The foundation I used for this look was the L’Oréal True Match in Dark Coffee. I used mac prolong concealer in NW45; the one in the tiny pump and mineralised skin finish powder. The gel liner is from lightinthebox and MUA eye shadow in chamoisee. For my lips I basically mixed L’Oréal the bigger the better and Revlon’s Mink Lipstick. The dress is from H&M and shoes are from New Look.

Finally, I hope you have had a blessed week.

Until next time stay blessed.

Hello and welcome to my blog. So basically this blog is a bit late as it was meant to go up on Sunday. Nonetheless here goes.

…but in your eye I’m a queen

The sermon was about how God can use anyone whether in faith or not for His purpose and for the good of His people. It highlighted the kind heart of some none believer but not down playing on their need for God’s righteousness which is in Christ alone.

I wore an african print which is loved by the masses. This dress was purchased for me by a lady in my church in London. And she bought it from a cloth shop probably a market in Ghana.

Until next time, stay blessed.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Another week complete and one about to begin. Today’s sermon was to trust in God in all circumstances. So if you are going through a lot remember Paul when he was imprisoned and Job; He who begun a good work in you is faithful to complete it. God was faithful.

Today’s dress is a max dress I have had for a long time. I bought this dress from Miss Selfridge.

I am sure I have mentioned this before but I rarely wear makeup due to the fact that I’m very lazy.

IMG_20180429_221523

I like the length of the dress but it was not loose enough as it is a size UK 4. I have come a long way with trying to put on weight so I am glad.

The thought of taking it off and cleansing your face is what I find tiring. But I do like it when I have it on. It is not something I can do Monday to Friday but we shall see as time goes on.

IMG_20180429_222537

The eye shadow is bare minerals morning glow and MUA champagne. Lipstick is Gosh the red but the lip liqueur and Lipstick. Mascara is loreal volume million lashes. Eye brow pencil is Iman cosmetics.

For the makeup I was going for royal blue champagne and red lips and no one was stopping me. 😁

IMG_20180429_222333

I have done this look before, I wanted to revisit with a bang . For foundation I mixed revlon in mocha and lancome in shade 16. Revlon is too cool and the lancome is too dark so together they work well. I feel.

The truth is I only wear makeup on sundays when i am going to church. I am a bit lazy when it comes to doing my makeup during the week because it means i have to wake up a wee bit early lol. I will share some of today’s look with you.

LRG_DSC00202

How did i do? I am not an MUA but to be able to do my makeup like one is always my aim

I used the MAC studio Fix foundation in NW55, the coverup concealer in NW45 mineralised skin finish in dark deep and LA Girl concealer in Fawn. Lip liner is Barrym in plum and lipstick is Revlon pinkpout.  #Thatsall

The hair is a whole different story. But this is my signature hair it frames my face well i think. The way i have worn it also fits my face well. Personally i do not like hair in my face

Until next time, have a blessed week.
