ACCESSING YOUR INHERITANCE


For 5 days last week, I was privy to be blessed by being a part of the 5 Nights Of Glory (#5NOG) that took place at Salvation Ministries Church in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. I watched online from Texas here and at the the risk of sounding too 'churchy' for some folks, it was a program that I was indeed blessed by.

DOCTORS FOR SICKLE CELL


Sickle Cell is that disease that necessitates having more than just one doctor by virtue of all the ways it affects patients. As pointed out in recent posts, the impact it has is more than just physical but also involves the mental, emotional and psychological well-being of those affected.

BEAUTY BY INFLUENCE


I have a blog and like many others, I show you how I wear my clothes, where I shop, what makeup I use and have even let you in on personal things going on in my life. Why do I do this? Primarily to 'influence' you in some way, shape or form to either buy something, mirror my style choices or more significantly, to not be ashamed of your personal story- whatever it is!

THE INFLUENCER - INDULGENCE


We're all familiar with the saying 'too much of everything is a bad thing'. This applies to things we consider to be both good and bad so while things like food, sleep and shopping are all considered good things, too much of either is not.

SICKLE CELL ADVOCATES


Each one of us, whether we know it or not, are vocal about it or not, all advocate for something; whether it be domestic violence, bullying, mental health issues, cancer or even animal rights.

DON'T HATE, COLLABORATE!!


Another year, another collaboration with my babe Toyosi. It's been almost one year since we did our first makeup collab and you can check it out here if you haven't already seen it. I know we were both really excited for it and this one is no different.

BLOGFLUENCERS


I'll admit it. In 2018, I think I went a little blog crazy revisiting old 'blogfluencers' I've enjoyed over the years and along the way discovering some new ones whose pages I poured through, often binge reading multiple ones at a time.

DR OZ TALKS SICKLE CELL


Reality shows are my guilty pleasure and that's a known fact. The foolishness and the drama is so entertaining that for the one hour when the show is on, I forget all the worries that trouble my soul.

FASHION EXPLORED!!


Last year I showed you guys some outfits I picked up from Shein as part of My Shopping Finds and some of the Christmas gifts I picked up for myself. I also told you that I was excited to style the pieces I got and I swear I tried to do just that with the co-ord set in particular albeit unsuccessfully.

RESOLUTIONS! SHMESOLUTIONS!!


Each New Year always brings with it a level of excitement and hope for what is to come either personally or professionally and so will often lead many to set out making resolutions that never make it past the first quarter of the year. People have discovered that setting small achieveable goals make more sense and with that have said adios to Resolutions! Shmesolutions!!

MY SHOPPING FINDS: CHRISTMAS GIFT EDITION


There are so many reasons why Christmas is a favorite holiday for many. Spending time with family and loved ones, being reminded that Jesus is the reason for the season and let's not forget the endless, obscene amounts of food that we stuff our faces with forgetting that by the time the new year rolls around, all that's left is a tripled waistline and one big roll where your tummy used to be.
