Birthday Weekend Special ♡

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 servant', so I have to make sure, all I do is to His glory, according to His purpose for my life! 

Seeing the number of days I have been on earth, really helped me to marvel at God, and to ask, if I am at the same point in my life, as He foresaw for that specific day. I am realising more and more that GOD knows my end from my beginning, and knows exactly what He has prepared for my days. He formed me and knew me before I was even conceived and has many GOOD thoughts towards me. 

Now, at age 24, I am so grateful that He has revealed Himself to me, and is purifying me; as the perfect Husband. The tests have been real HARD, but the mission continues. By His grace, I will complete the mission I was sent on earth for & continue to grow in love with Him & His perfect will for me. May my life be surrendered to worshiping and serving Him; bringing Him glory! #MyFirstLove 

My Modest Outfits over the weekend and what I got up to-- believe it or not, I actually didn't get to capture my birthday outfit. I forgot to, in the midst of all the FUN, I was having with my friends. 

Day 1 of being 24: Friday; My Birthday #PerfectEvening

I am not really a make up person-- I normally keep it pretty simple, but I did try to do my eyes and I really like the outcome. For those special occasions, now I know I can hold it up a little. Whoop! 

REALLY like these heels and the colour...that bubblegum blue. Oh yes! 

Styled my kinky twists, into a BIG bun to the side. 

This Cake was absolutely BEAUTIFUL to look at and to eat!!! Thank you so much ShanShan! I LOVE YOU!!!! My wonderful birthday evening, was spent with friends over dinner. After dinner, everyone was put into teams and we played games...well they played and I laughed. The games were questions about me and I found it SO funny, how people were shaky in things they thought they were so confident in. Blaming other team members for getting the answers wrong. I am sure everyone learnt some things about me that evening. Big shout out to Jasneth for all her WONDERFUL assistance and leading the games and all. I loved it all! Thank you everyone that came!!! :D :D 

Day 2 of being 24: Saturday: Wedding and Be Woman Event: 

On Saturday, my lovely friend got married to her best friend! It was so nice to witness them exchange there vows and become Mr and MRS E. What a blessing!! 2 more wedding to attend this year, so I will try to capture my looks, in video, as I didn't this weekend. I forgot to do anything blog related, as I was really present in the places I was and also focusing on Sunday's event as I was running one of the workshops. 

Mr and Mrs E. ♡

With some GEMS at the weddings. 

Spent my evening with the lovely Miss J! Thank you for a lovely evening!! 
The Be women event was full of ladies, doing all different things, in business and their hobbies. A night of real inspiration! What I took from the night, was definately, the need to have Jesus at the centre of EVERY plan and to find out from Him, what HE would have me/us do. It's all good to plan, but what's all these plans without God being first in our lives. 

My notes and thoughts when Heather preached: 

~ All plans are to be fully with Christ and we should trust Him to lead us into what He has purposed for us. 
~ Whatever God has called us to do, HE will open doors for. 
~ Whatever you are doing, be consistent and integral--show God you can be trusted, so He can release you into more He has planned. 
~ Do not be led by emotions. You may not feel like working, but it needs to be done. 
~ PRAYER is everything. Without communicating with God, you are heading for confusion.
~ No matter where God elevates you to, DO not stop spending quality time with Him--remember your first love. 

Me with Heather Lindsey! So humble and such a sweet, with His Word in her heart and mouth!! The message she brought to the event was SO sobering and full of hope; just what we need!  Such a blessing to have her in London! What a blessing she is to the body of Christ! Check out her blog and material, I am sure you will not regret it! #GoogleHer #SoldOutForChrist #LindseysinLondon

Small small photoshoot. I really like photos, I am always taking them. 

I created this look that morning, after going through a few outfits that were not working for the weather and all. I REALLY liked this outfit and the material that rested on my shoulder! When I start sewing...by God's grace...I will be able to make this look into a dress--I will update you all on the development for that one--if it goes ahead. (",) 

I got to meet lovely ladies and also see some old faces; that was really nice. 

3 pieces made into 1. 

Me and my this pretty Lady, have been communicating via social media for about a year and only met each other on Saturday! It was great. We got to fellowship all the way home together! LOVE it! 

Purchased the purity ring from Pinky Promise and A Perfect Recipe book, both by Heather Lindsey. 

I got to see the collection by Lara Peters, that was really nice, this was my favorite look. I can definitely see myself styling someone in this! Please excuse the image quality--I haven't been using my camera much lately. This photo does not do the look justice, please check her out on her FB page. 

Day 3 of being 24: Sunday - Make it Glorious Event:

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of going to the Make It Glorious event, whereby I was running one of the workshops. The theme for the event was Passion and Purity and my session was focusing on us as the bride of Christ, being passionate about being pure. Finding out why God is so passionate about purity and how we can be pure. Ephesians 5:25-30 completely blew me away and raised my self worth and value, as I saw the level of attention God pays to His bride-- in order to present her to Himself--spotless and without blemish! WOW! Have a look at it!!

The session was really geared towards us as Christ followers, to know the heart of our Husband, towards purity and to be in agreement with Him so we can walk with Him --Amos 3:3 style. It also touched upon Modesty for women, as that is heavily linked with being pure from the heart, so that ALL our conduct reflects this believe and faith we have. Purity-Holiness-Faithfulness are so important to God and anyone professing Christ, should understand why, because if we do not, we rob ourselves of the blessings of being pure in HIS sight! 

Along with this session I led, Cornelius and Heather Lindsey, who came from the States, completely preached powerful, unashamed messages about Christ and His love towards us, displayed His standards! Cornelius' message on VALUE, brought SO much clarity to me and has raised my view on how He sees me/us all. If you would like to hear the powerful messages from Cornelius & Heather, from the Make it Glorious conference. here is the link to the audios are: http://t.co/xSRqIHuz1y

My Outfit of that day! Rocking the new bag my bessie got for me on Friday. So on point! 

During my Workshop. ♡ Just to be able to share what He has done with me and the lessons that have transformed me, is an awesome privilege. God is so amazing! Romans 8:28 Always!! 

I LOVE this collar less coat and the overall look. #Modesty is NOT boring! 

With Miss Kika! #PureHearts 

♡ This Bag!!! She knows me well! ♡

At my stall, selling New Beginnings T shirt's and Set Apart GEMS ♡ -- [Coming online soon] 

It was such a pleasure to meet Heather and her family, after reading her blogs for ages and seeing the passion her and her husband have for Christ. A passion which anyone can have, if they make the right decisions and are willing to die daily. I have learnt a lot about dying to self, through this ladies material , as well as being a women in Christ. I am really thankful, for the members in the body like her and her husband.. Unashamed to preach what needs to be addressed -- yet in such love and boldness. 

My weekend was so wonderful and I have learnt to much, that I need to apply into my life. Right now my mind is on VALUE- VALUE- VALUE!!!! 

I'm not for sale! and I praise God for that!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

With Love and Style
