Hello and welcome

Hello and welcome to my blog. As you can see from the title, this is all about the WORD, fashion and beauty. I am going through a bit of shuffling in my mind and may make a few changes; I will leave that for another blogpost.

The word

We are still exploring the book of Titus. God wants the church of today to show forth the love of Christ on the way we relate to each other. We were also reminded that Love has no place for slander. Paul ask the older women to share their wisdom and encourage the young women.

So if you are older in a church be sure to encourage and correct where necessary. It’s a lonely world out there any piece of encourage can go a long way.

Look and outfit

I wore an african print aka Ankara dres.  This dress was made in Ghana and was bought already made. At first sight I didn’t think I would like it, but I have managed pull a two styles out of it one with belt and the other with out.

The dress is a maternity dress top belted it with a skinny belt from some other H&M corporate skirt or dress. And oh the shoes are from NewLook.

I used my M. A. C studio fix foundation in NW55 and their conceal or cover up in NW45. For eye shadow I used MUA eye shadow in midnight blue and one of MAC dazzle eye shadow in get phisical and BarryMs meteor storm in the corner of my eyes.

For my lips I used BarryMs lip pencil in plum and Revlon’s lipstick in Mink. I basically just mixed the two.

I should really start doing makeup videos not tutorials but just a how I got my look video on you tube.

Until next time, it’s bye from me.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another post on what I wore last sunday but first let get to the word.

The word

The preaching was based on the importance of godly leadership in every church. The scripture was taken from Titus and it basically show how some leaders in the church can be full of themselves and seeking praise and honour rather the praise and honour to and for Christ. So then the question is How seriously do we take the Lord Jesus Christ and the work of salvation He has accomplished? . A question I need to ponder upon everyday.

The look

I have come to realise that some bright eyeshadow don’t suit me well unless I am not applying it well. I will keep trying bright colours though and maybe pairing it properly with my lipstick could work too. For my foundation I used fenty beauty in 460, M.A.C skin finish in dark deep powder, I also used the cover up concealer in NW45 and set my under eye with Ben nye in Topaz. For my lips I am wearing Gosh Cosmetics The Red and for eyeshadow I used M. A. C carbon and one of the grey-like shade in BarryM’s Meteor Storm

I wore a new look midi dress and silver shoes from Miss Selfridge. That’s just about it. I wore those earring about a little over a year ago when I was bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding. The church that I go to is low key so the shoes, earrings and hair piece was for exhibition purposes. I usually wear stud earrings but they have all gone down the drain and I have none at the moment.

 

This is it from me today u till next time it’s bye from me.

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a bit late. As you can see I have changed the name. From now on it will be what I wore last sunday.

The word

Faith in God applies not only to dramatic events in life it applies also to the ordinary everyday life and all circumstances.

Belief in God is an obligation to all nations. Jonah was addressing a nation and God was speaking to a nation through Jonah.

Belief in God in what He is saying. He spoke through Jesus Christ His son concerning His promises for us. So then it is up to you if you want to believe and accept His promise of eternal life.

The look

I used my loreal true match in dark coffee and gosh cosmetics the red lip liquid. I had braids in my hair for a very long time so I took them out, treated it and straightened it.

 

The dress I wore is from Dorothy Perking Voulez vous range and the shoe and tiny purse is from asos. I made a video of this which can be found on my YouTube channel. I enjoyed putting this look together and I was glad the dress finally fit as when I first got it, it didn’t fit me well. It’s not too much yet it’s too much.

 

So this is it. Thanks for stopping by.

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.

About last sunday the word, beauty and fashion: a very late post.

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.

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.

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

The lady in pink

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am not sure if I have mentioned this before but I mostly buy items on sale and never full price unless I really need to. With that said you will never see me featured on any of the high street retail Instagram page 🤭. OK I know never say never.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

One of my good friends birthday outing was this Saturday so I pulled out all the old garments I have purchased. I usually do not have anywhere to go so I have had them for years but maximum 4 years. The sandals I wore was a Nine West sandles I bought from asos some years back. The jumpsuit is from Miss Selfridge, they were the only shop that usually stock my size so I shopped there a lot from their petite fashion.

The jumpsuit has a gold detail skinny belt which adds a bit of character to it. I thought the colour was a bit too much but then when I wore it out it was just fine. I also found an OPI nail polish which matched the jumpsuit. Those are my real nails you see the slide as well.

The birthday girl gave me the opportunity to do her makeup and hair #blessed. This was her final look. She uses a super drug brand foundation and MUA eye shadow pallette. We both wore a jumpsuit however hers are from boohoo.

I know this is well late but better late than never. I am now off to edit my workout video for YouTube. Stay tuned

 

Until next time it’s bye from me.

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.
