Happy Happy New to you all. I hope your Christmas and New year was great and filled with love, loads of gifts and lots of delicious Food consumption. For me Christmas was spent at home eating through out the day and helping my son open his presentsssss (with a little emphasis) as everything under the tree was for him, I guess he is enjoying the time as an only child for now, new years eve was spent at home partying and praying from 11.45pm to 12 midnight and start partying again haha no sleep at all till the previous day, oh the fun you can have partying at the comfort of your home.
So its 2016, oh my my my its the 10th already as the old saying goes time and tide wait for no man. Are you like me that don’t make resolutions anymore as we never keep to them, then that’s a good idea. For me I usually reconcile my life to be greatful for the good and the bad the previous year and for the bad I write it off as bad debt which means these items are closed in the books ( Just using my accounting terms). I also noticed that leaving the past behind is important to most people as all the blogs have read since the start of the new year are all around leaving the past behind and focusing on what lies ahead. The late Myles Munroe and Bishop TD Jakes always say what God has planned for you is ahead of you and never behind you so keep moving forward God will meet your needs in the present and never in your past.
The year 2015 was a great and trying year for me,but all things work together for Good for those that trust in the Lord (Romans 8:28) and for that all I can say is Thank you Lord. In terms of blogging it was a learning phase for me and am still learning, but I have gained a little confidence since then. I made great friends and support unit who are constantly there cheering me on. All of you are now like my second family and its a blessing to have known you all. Thank you all for taking your precious time every week commenting on my post I am forever greatful. I also thank God for the brands who I collaborated with and I believe greater opportunities are coming my way and your way as well I hope you are saying Amen to this. When I started blogging it was terrifying at first ( am not kidding you) but getting better each post (I must add with the great help of my sister) I hope you feel the same way too, if not be patient with me one day I will get there and I believe God wants me to be here to give motivation to you all and share my own style (well the little I have made sense of in this crazy world of fashion) and hope it will impart your life in any little way possible. Well, that’s the purpose.
Moving on, I pray this year we all start anew, make room for fresh ideas and get rid of every toxic and negative thoughts as whatever you focus on enlarge in your life, so the choice is yours. As for me since last year am trying to learn the following:
-To make excuses for the people who have hurt me or who may hurt me and forgive them as quickly as possible and love them anyway and sometimes from afar which is best for everyone
-Like the bible says slow to speak and always give a listening ears
-ignore the people who try to put me down, knowing its just a reflection of who they are
-give my utmost respect to anyone no matter their age, culture or background
-spend less time worrying and invest that time doing something fun and productive
-to always have something nice to say or say nothing at all as I don’t truly understand the battle that person is fighting
-Am most importantly make time for the people and things I love
So I hope you all would share some of the things you are learning and trying to achieve this year by commenting below and I wish you all God’s favor and blessings in all your endeavours and believe that if God be for you nothing will ever be against you.

My Fashion Corner:
Ok I wanted to start the new year on a low and build my way up haha, well not exactly that way but i just wanted to go for the chic casual look after anxiously wanted to wear this H&M Plaid shirt after I got it on sale before Christmas. I decided to pair is with my black top and shorts just for contrast and add a little white to the mixture by wearing my go to sneaker. I decided to try the high neck look with the shirt just for the fun. Oh well what can I say you can never go wrong with a casual look and with this combination.
