Birthday Weekend Special ♡

Image
Hey! It's been a while since my last blog post. I have had such a lovely weekend and wanted to share it with you all. My weekend, started on Friday, which was my 24th birthday!! Whoop Whoop!
My 24th birthday marked day number 8766 for me. That's how many days it has been since I arrived on Earth. I was inspired to find out how many days it has been following a movie I watched call 'The Encounter'--such a great movie, in seeing His word and how relevant it truly is to our lives. It reminded me of this verse:

Psalms 39: 4 "LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered, and that my life is fleeing away. 5 My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just a moment to you; human existence is but a breath."

Lately, I have been convicted of not using my days to the fullest, really examining myself and if I am doing what He created me to do, because I want to hear 'well done my good and faithful s…

Ghana: Beautiful despite imperfections

One of the tests I had while out in Ghana was the beauty test! This is were the word in me gets tested, as to where do I believe my beauty comes from!
Now, before I left for Ghana I decided to do the big chop. It was a massive step for me to do, because it really did challenge the idea that Afro hair on ME wasn't as nice as relaxed...but it was another one of those things, of letting go of the old and moving into the new. I prayed about it before I did it and felt a peace to do so and so I did. I didn't ever think that going to Africa with natural hair would be such a problem but it seemed to be for the stylists that couldn't do my hair. 
One of the things I did while out in Ghana was a spa day with the bride and other bridesmaids. It was such a relaxing day, followed by our hair trials for the wedding day, which I was most excited for. I really like pretty hair and so I was looking forward to the end result. Only, all the stylists that tried to work with my hair, just ha…

Ghana Holiday Part 4 ♡

More OOTD while in Ghana and some places I went to and things I experienced!
A dress and maxi skirt, used to create this look. ReStyling items you have saves you so much on buying new clothes. These Strap sandals are so cute. I really like them, especially these blue ones. 
Another hair style I did with my natural hair. I have had to play with my hair, because I do get bored with the same style for too long. 

We followed the gentleman taking this kid to be slaughtered *hand over face*...to be honest, I couldn't watch, so I hid behind my brother, but I heard the poor kid crying! At that point I could understand why people fight for animals and become vegetarians. It was a sobering experience and so sad...I personally haven't made any decision to be a vegetarian, but I understand much more, how others do it.



I would like to start detailing where I get my items that I wear, but as I go to write, I tend to realise that a lot of them are gifts, or from random stores and boutiques,…
