Hello 2021

“ Begin today, Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy”          - Sarah Ban Breathnach It’s a new year and once again we don't know what it has in store for us. Last year really tried our strength and patience I can’t lie, we cried, we laughed, we gained, we lost, we learned new things, skills, etc and I am glad it has come to an end.  This new year is an opportunity for us to start over and rewrite history. And speaking of starting over, what have you planned for yourself for the new year? I plan to work on my financial and career goals especially this year. I would also love to read a lot of books.  As we step into the new year, I want us to cultivate a positive mindset, I want us to milk every opportunity presented to us, I want us to never forget that we deserve better for ourselves. So what are you waiting for? write down your financial goals, write down those career goals, personal developments, plans, etc. S

Changing Careers and What I Learned From It

Earlier this year I lost my job and I tell you, it was something I never expected to hit me so early in the year. A few weeks later, and it dawned on me that I was literally unemployed, "where do I go from here" I kept asking myself, how many radio stations are ready or willing to employ a music scheduler during a pandemic for that matter? I quickly had to restrategize about what I wanted to do with my life and earn money. Since I had an intermediate skill in digital marketing, I figured it was time to go back to gaining more knowledge and pursue it as a career, two weeks in and I realize it was not something I wanted as a career... back to square one figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. At this time I had to reach out to a friend of mine who was in the tech industry, he advised me to try out UI/UX design, I didn't know anything about this field to be honest but I have always been passionate about design and never considered it as a career. After a lot of google

For the Love of Christ

  Hello wonderful people!   What a year it has been?! I hope you all are doing okay?   I can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to with you guys, it’s been an exciting and crazy journey.  Today’s topic is about LOVE. The love of Christ.  Many of us Christians and non-Christians alike tend to not really understand the meaning of love. Love is not just an emotional feeling you feel for your loved ones, it cuts across all barriers.  I will be talking about love from the Christian point of view today. A certain man met Jesus in the book of Mathew and asked; “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:36-39 ESV As Christians, we follow the 1st commandment by striving to love and please God with all our heart, soul, and mind thereby forgetting the second commandment th

How To Make Carrot Oil

Carrot oil can be used for the skin or hair and getting a good one can be nerve-racking sometimes, it’s either expensive or you fear getting a fake one.

Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

SHADE: 60 Caramel Getting the right foundation for my skin has always been a problem for me, it’s been either fake products which I talked about on this post  or the products don’t meet my needs. I hade to make an intense search online and found a video from a makeup blogger who mentioned that the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse was her favorite foundation for oily skin.
