12 Months. 12 Testimonies


It is my prayer you are doing well. I had a great year 2015 and i am happy to be alive and about to see a new year. God has been faithful no wonder i thought to write my testimonies from the year. I am narrowing them down to 12 (do it for the gram blog) but they are way more.
1. January 10th had great news about my little sister's A level results. That girl made us proud and I am grateful for her  success after those long nights of studying and no sleep.

2. February the 14th is and was a great day..quite cliche since it's Valentines day but it is much more special to me #double package

3. This is quite personal and you might be asking why did i then include it if i was not going to write more. Do not judge me, it's still a fresh wound but i am grateful that although  March 26th 2013 was unbearable,  i am getting used to the new situation and trusting God more.

4. I love going to church and i am proud to say the church i go to uplifts my spirit each Sunday. The pastors are God given. What better testimony!

5. May was incredible, i do not remember everything vividly but the happiness is beyond compare.

6. June the 17th is the youngest in my family's birthday. She is a source of joy and i thank God for blessing her with more years.

7. Woop woop, July is packed with birthdays. My two sisters celebrated their birthdays on the 23rd and the 27th, how great is our God! A testimony of life, life in abundance.

8. August 2nd marks her royal majesty the Queen 's birthday! Yes me. I testify the goodness of God. Oh did i tell you a surprise birthday dinner was organized for me? Thanks A and my lovely friends.
Still in August , the Queen mother celebrated her birthday. I am speechless when it comes to my mum, she is just blessed.

9. I started this blog on August 4 2015. It has been 4 great , experimental and learning months.

10.My dear beloved A is born on the 15th. More blessings. More years. More success

11. Guess who is done with University examinations forever until she starts her MBA? Meeeeee. Ebenezer !!!

12. My nephew Jr celebrates his 4th birthday on the 28th, Our almost-Christmas baby. Ts the season to be jolly and my dear friend Adel celebrates her 21st! On the same jolly note, a great year has come and is about to end. I lived, i loved, i was here. There were ups and downs but God's faithfulness prevails in my life. I can not wait to see what 2016 has.
I challenge everyone to make a list or verbalize their 12 testimonies. Count your blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done! Happy and blessed 2016!
Cheers...

LACEY

 I feel lace is the most appropriate for any festivities. This lacey number has a green lining which perfects the whole look because i love me some green and a perfect outfit to me has green.[tongue twisting intended] The t-strap heels are my favorites because they put the outfit on a whole new level with their detail. Happy festive season, enjoy responsibly!







THE CHRISTMAS TAG


 Hey there! Season's Greetings. Once we start seeing Christmas decorations up in malls and stores, it's a clear sign the year is coming to an end and a new, beautiful, fruitful and blessed year awaits. I saw this tag and thought to do it too because i love Christmas. Who doesn't? 

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?
Frozen
Home Alone
2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
No. I will one day..there is no snow in Zimbabwe or Malaysia.
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Umm for some time, i have been here. However, growing up we used to go to our rural home and spend it there. Those were the good times!
4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Jingle Bells! It's easy and meaningful.
5. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
Fruit cake! Yum, my mum knows how to hook us up with a rich and delicious fruit cake. I can never get enough of them!
6. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Receiving shawty! I love giving too but there is something about that cute sweater in your closet, from a loved one.
7. What makes the holidays special for you?
Being home. The plenty food and the traditional family outing to a close park or if that Christmas my mum is super jolly, going to a game reserve.
8. What’s your favorite makeup look for the festive season?
Wrong person. However, i love me some lipstick
9.  Real tree or fake tree?
Real. They have  a minty smell which makes any room cosy!

KITTEN NAVY

I was one of those people who hate despise kitten heels. I had a principle that shoes should be high-heeled or flat,no in-between.
 That changed when i came across these nuetral cuties. I can rock them with anything and i love versatility anyway. The navy dress needs no explanation, i just adore it's simplicity and chic zip detail.






Start. Just start.


Beloved 2015 is coming to an end. What a great year it has been, ups and down but those are the makings of life right? I am sure most people, including me had new year's resolutions. These never get out of style if i must say, such a cliche bunch of 'goals' that are honestly not met by lots of people. 

2016 is coming and you do not have to wait for January 1st to start on something you have always wanted to do. I once read that if you procrastinate , chances are you are never going to do the thing, visit the place or meet your target. The secret to achieving set goals is to start immediately the idea pops up, else it will just be one of your tales you chat away with friends.

How can i start when i don't have the resources?That is often the biggest excuse we give ourselves whenever we are asked why we haven't done what we said we would do. This is an outright lie! There is no way after thinking of an idea, to have zero things you need to put your idea to fruition. You might not have the money but you have the support, the passion and people who you can ask for help from. 
Someone who wants abs/ six pack ,toned arms and all that fitness, might dismiss the idea of working towards their dream body because they do not have money for gym membership. Excuse you, what about walking, eating well or using bottles of water as weights in your house? 

You can have results for what you planned and worked on or excuses, you can not have both and that is the reason why you should start. Start where you are, with what you have, big or small. Just start.
Cheers to new beginnings..

HELLO FROM THE ISLAND



Hello, it's me. If you haven't heard the hello song then you have been living under a rock! I already made it clear here and on this day that travelling and i are buddies. I love me some getaways and i'm happy that i had an opportunity to be out of town. 
I was an islander for the first time and had the place not been far, i would have been on my way back to the island right now. I had lots of fun, some of it could not be captured but this is the evidence for the captured moments! December is finally here, happy new month.
Cheers...
