Hello all so it has been a while since I blogged. I have been a bit busy with studying and mainly sort of focusing on editing my videos for YouTube.
I am also thinking about what to use this particular blog for I have an idea but I won’t do anything until I am really sure.
I have decided to move my fashion post to Iryn Boateng because I can add videos so which mean the blog will come with a video instead of just pictures. I might duplicate my posts however the post on this site will not have videos. I still have not decided yet. Until next it’s bye from me.
Hello and welcome. It’s been a minute since I blogged. I was on a spiritual quest. I was doing a forty days fasting and praying but part of the reason was my last post publish at the wrong time of day which annoyed me for a while.
On to the most important thing. So I did a 40 days fasting and praying with a congregation I used to be part of. I must say I have totally forgotten how difficult this spiritual exercise is in the beginning.
It was more difficult now as I have been eating more frequently now than a few years ago.
The type of fasting
I was having one meal a day so basically from dinner to dinner. I also had no water. I guess you can call it a dry fast.
Here we have chicken salad with Nando’s coconut and lemon periperi sauce
In the beginning
The beginning of the fast was difficult. I felt hungry and I wanted food now! But as the days went by I got used to it. And even now I still have to put myself in check before I eat anything because my brain is fixed on the #NoFoodYet period.
At this stage I was used to not eating or drinking till about 19:00 to 20:00. I waited till I got home to make myself something to eat.
What I learnt
I think a week or two I to the fast I stopped posting on social media both private and public account. Let say reduced posting. Partly because I noticed how much time I spent on editing my picture and trying to collect cleverly put together words for my post. I spent more time studying and editing my videos for my YouTube channel. Due to this I have decided to post once in a while rather than every day. I don’t want to be in bondage of having to post all the time.
I also found that I thought clearer and focused better in the beginning of the day but then when the day got older I got tired and a bit drained. I also found myself sleepier when I was at home than when I was at work. You have to keep yourself busy during this time.
I find that my skin is so smooth and was clearing up. This is because when you don’t eat you internal organs repairs itself and gets rid of toxins. Toxins is what cause acne at times and possibly hormonal imbalance which can lead to acne. I currently have no spot on my face. I have also been doing my turmeric facial on a regular basis which is helping. My nails also grew longer and stronger. I am not taking any vitamins however I have been drink a this water, mint, ginger, lemon, cucumber and ACV mixture after my meals.
I have a made a video about this which can be found on my YouTube channel. Check out my video on YouTube for more on this.
Thanks for stopping by. And until next time stay safe and stay blessed.
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. 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.
This is a Lamb burger and oven baked chips.
This is a salmon salad which as avocado, tomatoes, olives, cucumber and bell peppers.
one of my go to meals when i am bored with almost everything. Salmon and a variety of vegetables.
This is salmon and wholemeal couscous. I mix the couscous in mixed vegetable and asparagus.
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.
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
