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. I learned how to make my own carrot oil and the transformation was so beautiful; the use of carrot oil brightened my skin and made it really soft, the key is to apply it when your skin is still wet before applying your lotion 🌚 I have never gone back to buying from a store ever since. Keep reading as I walk you through how to make your own carrot oil.

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. I eventually got this foundation and here is a review of my experience using it.  The Company Information & Promises •  SPF 15 • Matte Perfect Foundation  • Light Weight Feel  My Experiences •  Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is a light weight foundation with a light to medium coverage • It blends in easily easily and smoothly. • It gives a matte finish but lasted for only about 2-3 hours for me so I had to repowder throughout the day. • It had white undertones after I apply it and I had to buy the Mary Kay Timewise to blend with it whenever I use. • I couldn’t wear it on hot or sunny days

2020, Life & Expectations

Have you ever planned something and it didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to? How did you feel, what was your reaction like?  Throughout 2019 I didn’t even update my blog, before now I would beat myself up and get disappointed but as time went on I realized that these things happen, life happen and a lot of things get out of control, I’m human.  2019 was a good year overall and I am glad we have passed that phase.  How have you been? 2020 hasn’t been fun yes? This was not how we planned to live our life this year, full of panic, anxiety and fear. The world going through the same thing at the same time, it’s a mess but we stay hopeful & positive.  I can imagine how difficult it must have been for a lot of us, some of us lost families, jobs, businesses, investments during this pandemic and I pray for the strength for you to bear these losses. We had lots of expectations and now it’s all on standstill.  By the way what have you all been up to? Th
