Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope Beyoncé doesn’t mind me taking her shine for 5 seconds. I’m very excited about this particular poster and thought to make one for myself 😂 but I tried.
With that being said the track brown skin girl on the sound track is giving a voice to all the brown and dark skin girls out there that we are beautiful. Over and over again we have the media in particular favouring individuals with light skin over the darker ones and to make it worse some of our own men making jokes about us. 🤦🏾♀️ Hence why it’s called “Brown skin girl”.
I just read an article where the young princess in a cartoon forfeited her beauty to see the Prince and with her being white in complexion, the creater of the cartoon thought it was wise to turn the princess dark and with blemishes as a sign of uglyness.
This is 2019 and slowly this is being fed to children and minors that if your are brown or any darker you are not considered beautiful but rather ugly. Why is this dangerous? Well it is because some people are using some harmful chemicals to lighten their skin colour. These chemicals have permanently damaged their skin and others have to be hospitalised.
In addition to Africa, other continent are partial to light skin individuals and are given more opportunities than the darker skin tones individuals. This I believe started during the slave trade where Africans were seen as not of any value. The curves of our body and versitility of our hair was frown upon and the only way to not exhit what is beautiful is indoctrination. “You must look like your masters” even if it will kill you.
A person’s intelligence and creativity is never dependent on the colour of their skin but rather the mind and vision. Let’s lift each other up in encouragement rather than tear ourselves down for something we had no power over.
I won’t apologise for being brown skin although the struggle is real and if I must confess sometimes I feel like screaming “It’s not my fault I was born dark skin” albeit I won’t change it for a thing. It is a struggle but a struggle that is moulding me for the better.
Young girl reading this, you are beautiful the way you are. You are moulded by God’s very own hands and He paid a high price for you so please do not sell yourself short.
Until next time, love the skin you are in and remember that God made you beautiful too.
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.
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.
This me shamelessly posing and showing off my inner Next Top Model fun pose
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 concealor 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.
Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another post on what I wore last sunday but first let get to 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.
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.
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.
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.
Hello and welcome to my blog. This is another all dressed up and ready for church. First the word.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
A few head and facial shots
I did these shots in the kitchen the lighting was amazing and I had selfie lighting as well. I used loreal truematch in dark coffee and MUA eye shadow. For the lips I am wearing bare minerals and BarryM lip pencil in plum.
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.
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
