GRACE AND BUTTERFLIES

  Quote of the Day: Many are the Afflictions of the Righteous, but the LORD Delivers Him from them All.- Psalm 34:19 You are highly welcome to today's post. After all the hard work I put into typing the first one, the stupid google application for Blogger I was using froze and deleted everything I had put together. I was frustrated, and decided to cool off. Thus, the time difference as promised here   Most of you probably came here because of yesterday's Facebook, and Instagram post. Welcome, I recommend that you look around the blog, and read other posts as well after this one. Sometime ago, my friend Ola and I met up. She had just come back from Russia and suggested that we meet up ASAP. I agreed, I was so excited to see her after almost six years. We agreed to meetup on a Sunday. I suggested a fairly secure waterside location in Victoria Island that we were both familiar with, and one that our parents were very sure of; one I had been longing to see for mysel

What flowers are your favourite? Mine are tulips and roses. Guys, I haven't been regular on instagram because I took some time off to go back to my drawing board. I felt as if I was gradually falling into the pit of being just another instagram blogger and i didn't like that. I was getting lost in the noise, and so I had to withdraw in order to remind myself why I really care enough to share pictures, and captions that mean a lot to me. Anyway, now that I think I've found my voice I'll give it a go, please follow me here One of the highlights of this wee

Some Things I Carry in my Handbag || WHATS IN MY BAG

Hi Guys! Thank you for stopping by. If you're in the homepage peeping this post, you might as well come right in sugar. My handbag is usually prepared the night before I go out. By prepare, I mean I make a mental note of the next day, and line up all I'll be needing before assembling the necessary stuff into my bag. This method helps me not to forget key priorities like my identity card especially if I'm changing bags. The things I'm about to reveal to you are stuff you'd always find in my bag regardless of what size of bag I'm carrying, or where I'm going. a. My Cards: My National Youth Service(NYSC) ID Card is ALWAYS with me. Ever since I moved, I have found that thing very valuable. Also, my office ID card is in my bag on weekdays. I also carry my physician's complimentary card with me because you never know. b. Petite Vaseline or Moisturiser Bottle: I keep a pint sized bottle of original petroleum jelly or my favourite mo

What to Wear to a Wedding as Summer Ends and the Harmattan Begins

Quote of the Day: While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.- Genesis 8:22. In some parts of the World autumn/fall is gradually creeping in, and in others (like the one I’m currently in) the rainy season is coming to an end and the Harmattan is slowly annoucing its presence. Now that I think of it, this post should have been rightly titled " what to wear to a wedding this end of summer as the seasons change. " I LOVE the Harmattan, it's my favourite season! As a child I hated it; mainly because I had the worst sensitivities during this period' thank God that's all in the past. How are you coping with the change of season? While shooting these photos, this dress gave me all sorts of feels. It ended up looking like spread outs for a glossy magazine, all thanks to God for bringing my super photographer friend Kaally my way. This girl gets me y'all. I feel like a Prin
