I and my twin brother were born premature babies. On the day of our birth after so many hours of being under the knife to finally bring us out. Our mum was told that she should take heart and not expect us to live longer than three months, but my mum being the woman of faith that she is refused to believe it. She instead replied that she would bring her healthy babies to see him in three months. Three months later we were even bigger than our age. What can I say we were fed A LOT of love. Over twenty years down the line and we are still strong and kicking. When God has a plan for you regardless of what the doctor says, you will still to make it. What the doctor told my mum was fact, what my mum replied was the truth. The truth doesn't deny the fact but instead brings God's intentions to a reality. So if you have been told you anything negative, speak the truth that is God's words as a reply. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". Jeremiah 29 vs 11. Your words are spirit and life. Declare it, believe it and live it. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen". Hebrews 11 vs 1. You might not see it yet, but let your faith be the evidence of the truth that is yet to manifest. I am a result of my mother's faith and declaration of truth.
I kept my jewelry one colour. Instead of choosing the typical silver or gold or "diamonds" with are often worn on special occasions. I decided to change things up a bit by choosing to wear Rose Gold. I got the rings and bracelets from Primark. I was a little surprise when I found them as I rushed out, and roamed around the shops for the perfect accessories for my outfit on the day. When I saw the rose gold rings I fell in love and there after the simple minimalist bracelets. My outfit was complete. I just added the necklace from Asda that I had gotten a few weeks back.
Yassss!!!! People. Yes. I straightened my hair (If you can not tell), which took over five hours to do. I didn't realise I had so such hair until we started. I also didn't realise How long my hair had gotten. I will be putting up a post about the current length of my hair up soon, Before and after trimming it, because I had to 💇off a couple of centi-meters to keep my hair looking healthy. Those split ends had to go! All that hair is MINE!!! No brazillian weaves here🙅. For those of you who don't know the struggles of growing natural hair, you won't understand me Joy 😭.
I can not express what I went through to get these shoes (below). A day to my birthday the dress and shoes I had prepared became a no no, and I had to look for alternatives, FAST. Where better to turn to than ASOS. After hours of roaming through ASOS I finally found the perfect dress, choosing the shoes was the hard part but after a couple of hours I decided to go with these shoes and I don't regret my decision. I love them. I believe they completed the outfit nicely. I got the bag from primark as well and I must say I was very very impressed. The bag is thick and sturdy. I also love the big tassel, I believe it complements the pom-poms nicely.
The restaurant I choose for my birthday was 'Chino Latino', which (if you have not get by the name) is a Chinese restaurant with a Latino bar. The restaurant itself is beautiful and has an open kitchen where you can see your food being prepared, and the service was great. The waiters attended to your every need, engaged in conversations with you and keep you amused. The down side to the restaurant firstly the food was quite pricey. If you compare the experience, service and taste of the food, I would say it was worth it. Another downer was the restaurant gets really hot when there is a full house like on my birthday, so make sure you are not padded with layers. It is a restaurant that I would recommend. Just make sure you read the menu well and order what your will like.
