Hi everyone hope you all are doing well, as for me the start of beautiful spring came with a glum, on Sunday evening me and my sister received the sad news of our cousin’s death back home in sierra Leone. It was a shock to us because he was so young and full of life (sometimes we forget death does not come with an age restriction) I called my uncle and he couldn’t stop crying on the phone and me and my sister cried with him as I could sense his deep agony of losing a first child. Apparently he was sick and the doctors were not able to detect the real problem so it went from one complication to another which is really sad and it makes me wonder if he was in a first world country like me if the story would have been different as back home they lack the right or should I say effective medical resources to treat patients and to make the situation even worse the country is still trying to find ways to combat the Ebola outbreak were thousands of people lost their lives and still counting.
As I write this post I think about the things I take for granted being over here (In Australia) while others in my country and around the world are lacking the mere necessity to survive. He was a smart and humble boy full of life and potential the world did not get to experience much, I know God created him for a particular purpose and I wonder if he got the chance to fulfil that purpose or was called too soon by his creator. I know God doesn’t have any oops moment but he carefully orchestrated his plans as he is God alone but I hope and pray his purpose was accomplished.
Life is such a vapour one minute we are here and the next we are gone and one can only hope that when your time is up people can remember you of at least one life changing moment in a person or the world.
What are you doing right now with your life to make it count?
My Fashion Corner:
OK if you have been through my blog you will now come to the conclusion am in the business of black and white incorporated with other colours, so when I found black and white together in little circles pattern called polka dot a combination of two of my favourite colours I was hmmmmm perfect the designer was thinking of me the entire time (wishful thinking) . But on a serious note though I have also been a fan of polka dot and I worn it differently in a previous post and I always use a pop colour to show the contrast.
Till then talk soon …… Thanks for stopping by
Sonia, osh o mi sista. Its so difficult when a relative passes back home. My condolences to you and your family. I tell you the situation back home is pathetic really. Our hungry leaders are not doing anything to make things better. De cow den still dae eat grass oosai den tie dem, may the lord have mercy!! Some days I go on Facebook and I have to log off immediately because of the number of people in my age bracket and school mates that have passed away due to misdiagnosis. On a lighter note, you are looking fabulous in this outfit milady. xoxo
Thanks Elsie. It so sad that the leaders are just using the country’s funds for their own personal gain. I pray one day sierra leone will be the paradise it was once knew as. So many people have passed away its not funny and i get so worried for my mother who is still dear. Anyway that for stopping by much love dear.
I love the mix of polka dots with the pop of color. Looks great!

Ouch! My condolences to you and your family. How very sad. Yes we oftentimes forget that death can strike both the young and the old. May his soul rest in peace. You look very lovely though, :))).
Thanks Idu. God has been our strength. Thanks for stopping by beautiful
I love, LOVE black/white and a pop of colour; for me it is usually a red heel or blue heel but that yellow pump looks great. It also works so well because the size difference in the prints, if they were the same size it would be a bit too much (in my opinion of course) but they balance out so nicely. I am sorry for the loss of your cousin, I hope your family can find peace and just remember all the good times. xo
Haha Just love your honestly and red heels are always a killer with black and white. Thanks dear we are doing great and we know he is in a better place. Enjoy the rest of your week
