Something about a trip, on the road




I'm sure you already know what that title is about, but if, and only if, you are not sure.. amma tell ya. Road trips are always a good idea, except when your battery dies and you don't have a power bank or a car charger! I think i will literally die. I am my phone's friend. It's not good but i can't help it. Back to road trips, I love the idea of travelling by road, with snacks, music and awesome people. There is just something about the road.
Growing up, we were always on the road. My dad was such an awesome driver and we always used to travel. I remember vividly our last road trip to a place called Troutbeck Inn in Zimbabwe, that place is gorgeous!

Moving on, some time last year i went on a trip to Port Dickson Beach  and Melaka Zoo and best believe that these are awesome places to be. I have photos to prove!

Cheers...Grace











Taking Stock  One

I have been following This is Ess for quite some time now and i must say, she has been a push factor for me to start my blog, tell her if you know her!

Letter from the Queen

Does background really matter?




B A C K G R O U N D...it depicts something that is literally at the BACK and straight down on the GROUND yet here i am, asking if it matters. You, in your mind might have already answered according to your own line of thought but hear me out. 

 In MY opinion, the background of anything matters in a way.Lets take for example, when you're applying for a place in college, a job vacancy, a culinary school or in my mind, wanting to date someone, you happen to get questions like tell me about yourself, have you done this before, do you have any knowledge about this...and so on. A person's background does not, i repeat does not DEFINE them but it sure does matter.

If you are like me, scared of numbers lol, not so scientific but artistic, you wouldn't expect yourself to be admitted into medical school or to be seen doing ACCA except praise God, a miracle happens and you are renewed with a packed mind for the new field, you definitely need to have a background of a science subject or should have done a commercial subject before, for you to be eligible and not get embarrassed when you're asked for referencing. 

Again, this background-business in my opinion matters in relationships. They say you can easily tell who a guy is by the way he treats people around him, how he treats the waiter at a restaurant and most of all, how he treats his mother! As a girlfriend/fiance/wife you can't expect a man to treat you better than how he treats the woman who labored, pampered, prayed et cetera for him. Why are you writing all this might be the question. Well, i'm just highlighting the importance of someone's background because most times people act, react, interact and behave in certain ways simply because they were raised that way or they have a 'background' of the same action! I also believe that a person's background whether good, bad or ugly does not define who they are, their future or destiny but it still matters as it helps the people around them to know them more. 
What do you guys think? Does background really matter? I want to know your views. 

Cheers...Grace

Dare to begin

This is the first and it's obviously not going to be the last post because believe you me, I've fallen in love with this space. I don't know why it took me so long to start but thank heavens i finally did.
So this was yesterday when I came up with this outfit for church. I loved the neutral colors and little did i know that different clothing pieces and accessories would come out nicely! Now I know and I can't wait to style these pieces differently. Me being a photo-junkie, i took a lot of pictures and my friends Addie and Irene feature in some of them.
Cheers...Grace
