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.

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

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.

What’s in my perfect ten smoothie

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently made a smoothie which had ten ingredient in it. It was actually quite tasty. I initial bought the fruit to have at work and they were for to ripen at home however I left it for too long so I decided to make a smoothie out of them.

dav

Blend it all well together

The ingredient

Mango

Peaches

Avocado

Blueberries

Strawberries

Apricot

Apple

Spinach

Kale

Broccoli

Cinnamon

Almond milk

dav

Look at the vibrant colours

This is packed with multi vitamins and nutrients that the body needs to function to it optimum level. They are quite a lot and you don’t have to use it all but if your fruits are about to go off this is one way of making good use of them.

dav

This is how I store mine

Let me know of any strange combination of smoothie you have made before.

 

Until next time it’s happy smoothie making.

My modest Marilyn Monroe moment

Hello and welcome. Here is a two blogs in one. I have been a bit busy over the past two weeks as I had an exam. So a bit about this Sundays WORD was a question. As a believe how seriously do you take God. Do you profess with your mouth and live any how? Time to think, ponder and change if need be. How shall we neglect so great a salvation? God hate sin and has provided atonement for us in Christ Jesus, let’s not make a mockry of Him by living any how.

Last Sunday’s look

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For this look, the trousers is from asos, the blouse is from H&M. The black and white shoes are from Dorothy Perkins and the nudeish one is from new look. The trouser in this picture didn’t fit me back then, but now they do and I am glad. The eye shadow in this picture is MUA and the lips are elf cosmetics Ruby Red. 

This Sundays look

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see I am slowly movi g toward vibrant colours. For the eye shadow I used MUA and my lips are BarryM matte me up. The skirt is from Asos, I bought this a few years ago but it didn’t fit either, it does now although it has been adjusted I can take the adjusted part off. The blouse is from Primark. Now that I have a better eating habit, I fit in the size 6 properly as well as 8. I think before the sizing was not true and was a hit and miss for me.

 

Until next time stay blessed.

Once upon a time in Notos Panorama, Greece

Culture, Explore, Holiday, Travel, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is just a short piece of me remenicing about my holiday to Greece last year.

bty

This is Notos, Panorama Greece which inspired this piece.

When we hopped off the boat at Notos, I decided to look around. The sky was blue, the sun was not shy at all and the birds were chirping. The Greeks didn’t seem to stress much.

Screenshot_20180602-204319

Just a few directions for the tourist. The most important one being the WC, obviously. 😂

Then I thought to self ‘this is life’. To me the sound of the birds chirping, the blue sky and colourful scenery brought a lot of peace compared to what I was used to. “Why can’t it be like this all the time?” I pondered. One must sit back and enjoy life. Sometimes you need a change of scenery to be able to think well and freely, to motivate you to do more or better, you become alert and are reminded of what really matters in life.

This is one of many post to follow.

Until next time, take a break and focus on you.
