Matthew 1:21 "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins

vs 23 "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us"

Isaiah 9:6 it says "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be wonderful counsellorThe mighty GodThe everlasting FatherThe Prince of Peace"

Tumeric Inspiration!

Just remembered that I watched a youtube video a while back of a girl putting on a tumeric face mask so I thought I'd replicate it.
1. Tumeric
2. Milk
3. Flour
4. Olive oil

she replaced olive oil with almolnd oil and her flour was chickpea flour.
So I mixed them all together and  rubbed it gently over my face. Left it for a little over 5mins and washed it off with warm water.

I guess the flour is to thicken the mixture and olive oil to moisturise.

I heard that "tumeric" prevents acne so yh...still on dis acne prevention theme...
 Here's my inspiration

I'm on the guy ting!

Is it me or do guys clothes look much better than girls...I've always thought that but maybe it's just my opinion. Anyway, I went to primark today to get a scarf for winter as I realised that the one I have is out of season; you know those metallic looking scarves from the previous year. So I thought why not get me a new one. Now the thing is, I loved the berry color trend this autumn and I think it's still in so I thought might as well get a berry scarf but those for the girls in primark were so cheap looking and fluffy that, the fluff kept on sticking to my hair so I lost interest.
Decided to go to the guys section in primark and found this "beautiful berry snood" for £5, looks a much better quality so I got it ...I'll show u a look alike below
love my new snood!

Honey where's the cinnamon!

Okay enough with the cheesy titles lol...I just made an impromptu face mask no. 2...and thought I would share with you once again.

1.Mango
2.Cinnamon
3.Honey


I finished my huge mango today and I thought why not

rub the peels and the seed on my face
So I did and I found

my housemate's cinnamon and poured a small amount in my palm and rubbed it gently all over my face

Then I remembered that

I have some honey in the fridge so I thought why not add that one too ...

making use of what I have.

Will wipe it off in 15mins with a warm, wet cloth

Found out that
Honey and cinnamon have antiseptic properties 

so I guess it'll be beneficial...hmm waiting for the beautiful results soon...smells beautiful by the way

My Face Ate My Breakfast!!!

Ok so I my housemate left today and he said I should take good care of myself so I thought I'd start doing that again since being busy has left me not caring as much about appearance as I used to. Anyway, I just remembered that I used to make natural recipe's for my hair and my face a few years back when I began my natural hair journey so I thought ...why not go back to them... since they seemed to be helpful looking back at them. So I decided to make an oat porridge mask for my face...(Hence the title: My face ate my breakfast)...So..yh...it's nothing special but I thought it's be nice to share with you guys.

Oat porridge face mask
1. Instant Oat
2. Honey
3. Milk

Stir up and warm for a minute or until the mixture is even like your oat breakfast
Allow to cool for a bit
apply mask to face and leave to dry (roughly 20mins)

Wipe off with a wet, warm clean cloth...
Your face should feel clean and moisturised + U'll feel like u did something good by pampering yourself like I did
Enjoy your breakfast/facefast (get it lol!)

My Father's business

Here I am thinking almost 100% of the time about myself and forgetting that it was never about me in the 1st place.
I came across this video on one of my friend's Facebook updates. It didn't hit me the 1st time I watched it but after a 2nd look, I realised it. 

Kunle, a guy from Coventry university went to Brazil to do the work of God, but died a few days later after drowning in the amazon river. It's really sad but the one thing that struck me was the fact that throughout his days, he chose to be about Christ. 

Luke 2: 41-49 talks about Jesus at the age of 12 staying behind in the temple to teach and to learn more about his Father through communicating with the doctors. 
Stressing on vs 49, "....How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?".
 I find that this is connected to Kunle indirectly, for as a young man, he could have chosen to go to Brazil for so many reasons, e.g just to have "fun", yet he chose to be there for the sole purpose of doing God's work. 
Christ said in Mark 16:15 "And He said unto them, Go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature".
Matthew 28:19 refers to the same message "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost"

Just recently, I've been thinking about wanting to travel to many places, yet in none of those thoughts did it occur in my mind that I would go there for the work of God. This comes back to me thinking about myself and my needs almost 100% of the time. Rather selfish but Thank God my eyes are Opened now. I will go when God says I should go. That way it won't be a vain reason. Now I know that I'd want to die doing the work of God than for anything else as recorded in Philipians 1:21 "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
 Bless you Jesus

So busy- update

Hi guys!!

Thought I should do a blog update with the little break I've managed to have... Unfortunately, I've been so busy this final year. I find myself doing something almost every day so I haven't even had time to just chill...
Handed in one of my reports yesterday and have got 3 more to go before leaving for christmas...Slightly dreading the whole process of getting them done...as usual lol...Oh my!!...Anyway, I wrote about "hard work" a while ago and I thought I should do a little update on my progress. I tried to get my uni work done a few days before my deadline but to be honest it did not work out as planned and I ended up staying up all night to finish it off. How bad! But I'm glad I tried at least. Hopefully my efforts will be fruitful, because like the ant I tried to work hard (at least i think i did).
So I'm about to start a new one today. Been feeling a bit drained from the my late night sleep and from too much computer use; all bcz of my work but it's all good. Let's hope it all works out for good - Romans 8:28

With regards to my hair, I twisted it on the 28th of september and I still have it in. Not enough time to take it out atm. But I'm hoping to take it out in december and do a fresh "genie loc/yarn braids" since I want to protect my hair throughout this winter as I never really do. But so far, I've just washed it twice with my head&shoulders shampoo+conditioner, as the sulfur 8 wasn't really doing me any good with regards to the dandruff. I've seen better progress with this one so yh...<3 it....
Here is my hairspiration 
we'll see how it goes
Hope all is well with everyone....happy autumn!!

INSPIRATION- LIFE WITHOUT LIMBS

"GOD is everything! He lives in us and so we live in His strength. We will mount up on wings as eagles with Him. The wings of the HOLY SPIRIT will cause us to soar higher and higher as we draw near to God and learn to trust Him in every situation. Thank you Jesus for our lives are a testimony of your greatness." 
                                                                 INSPIRATION....<3- "Nick Vuyicic"
"Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." John 9:3

IGNORANCE by BATSI NYAZ

Just came across this beautiful poem by one of my m8ts and tot to share...Hope you are blessed...I am :-)


Once upon a time...
she took a vow with IGNORANCE...
hatred and sadness was his character....
and FAILURE hiS motto...
ShE welcomed them both willingly ...
blindness she could not explain....
shame and disgrace surrounded her.....
as she welcomed them both to her desired treasure...
took a vow with failure...
sadness, hatred, lust, pride and jealousy found her....
is this love she thought...?

Ignorance became an addiction ....
one that she could not resist...
is this love??


as the day started...she embraised countefeit .......
through his atmosphere....to his music she sang, danced and worshipped.....
and there the corruption began...
is this love?? 


music,sex,drugs,violence,depression,lust,jealousy,
hatred,pride,immorality,adultery,
disobidience,confusion,abuse,FaiLuRe....
was her everyday strongholds......is this love she asked IgNoRaNcE>?
yes the father of all lies replied .....
i will give you more riches to%%...
HUSH..!! to her surprise she shouted before he finished...
LoVe and hoPe had stepped in on her side....
HoLY was his name......
and ViCtOry was his character.....
vIcToRY ...he said.....'yes ...i have already given you power to command anything in my name.....you already have everything...by the power of your tongue you can do anything ....... victory lies in you...now command ignorance out of you life.....for I AM LOVE.."!??>>


Young girl, beautiful rose
Remember you can jump from one to one hundred
Or take this journey step by step with him
Unconditional love….A maiden you still are
Can only shine, when he is the light
….. Reflecting your inner beauty and man that’s love!
Young girl, beautiful woman… if only you knew!

Like the Song of Songs so he speaks,

Yes you are wisdom,
Without you there would be no helper,
Body of Christ left to stumble,
You are special!
Uniquely molded to fit his suitable plan,
Fearfully and wonderfully made… young girl, beautiful woman
If only you search!
Don’t let you go wasted...
Young girl, beautiful rose
You are loved

layin in ma bed- hard work!!

I'm going back to university by the end of this week...it's my final year and so far I've been thinking of how fast its all passed me by...well nearly.
Last year I thought to myself, "i'm gonna work so hard that I get a "1st" each time in my reports...well it happened once and then everything changed..."went downhill" is the wrong statement to use in this instant coz it depicts that I have been ungrateful for how far the Lord has brought me...so I guess i won't use that phrase....because I am very very thankful at the same time

Anyway we're going back as i said and I keep thinking of how I'm going to achieve my goal this time though it's a completely different circumstance....well maybe....in that I've got to work, while I do an extra module from the previous year plus those for the new year & other extra curricular activities...

It seems rather daunting writing it down but I'm just hoping that just as always I'll take it one day at a time and of course seek the Lord in it all coz that's where my strength comes from ...always!!...

Ant carrying the biscuit load- hard work...:-)

Proverbs 14:23 "All hard work brings profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty"

Colossians 3:23:24 "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward"

Proverbs 13:4 "Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper"


So my new goals for this year are;

1. Better time management
2. Day apart each week for studies
3. Plan days around fun, studies + work and not just go with the flow (unplanned)
4. Develop myself more

I think 4 is enough for now. So i'll see how I cope with these goals from next week. God willing I'll be able to achieve them with time....:-)

Hold on or Let go

So I was reading Texttextiles's update on " Emili Sande...walk away" and it was a song that talks about relationships and knowing when to let go and move on... I didn't really pay attention to the song but all I remember is this comment. So I just thought of the times that we have wanted certain things to happen so badly especially in relationships/ friendships so we go the extra mile even when the other person does not seem to care as much. So there is me sitting there thinking, "I guess I need to let go now and move on". But then I watch lauryn Hill's Speech and she makes a slight comment about serving others and Loving others even when we do not recieve anything back which Christ has already made clear but i guess sometimes we or maybe I forget. So basically, the time that we show true love is when we love others regardless of them not paying attention or acting like they care ....or whatever else they may do.



So the MORALE of the Story is "LOVE one another REGARDLESS....:-)

The Lauryn Hill Speech

"An Old favourite"
I was just going through my tumblr updates for some inspiration as y'all know, I haven't updated in time. But anyway I came across an old Lauryn Hill Speech which I thought was beautiful in every way.

I remember Lauryn Hill as the only lady in "Fugees" with their song, "Ready or not"...well that is about the only song I remember from the Fugees at this point in time. But anyway, as I went through the tumblr updates,  I came across black-mail's update on lauryn Hill... I tot why not...and here I am reposting it... I hope you learn something from it coz I did....well at least I hope I did...enjoy....!!

"Be Useful" by majorsteps

So i was going through my blog subscriptions as usual and I came across majorsteps' update on being useful...I thought I'd share it....why not!!

Hope u r inspired coz I am...

Be Useful!




"Be Useful to someone esp. when you have nothing to do...try and be a blessing unto someone because at almost every point in your life, you are a solution to someone's problem...Unless you find the reason you were put here on earth, you cannot live a purposeful life. Identify what you can do to help people in all situations... E.g.You know you may be a kettle but unless you boil water, you are useless(not serving your purpose)....what is it you think you are supposed to be doing here on earth? identify what it is....Usually, the answer is in things you do that you do not mind not being paid for and serve others in that area...You are guaranteed more fulfillment and happiness that way than any other way you choose to live your life...if you doubt this, try and find your purpose and see if you do not feel fulfilled and validated....I DARE YOU!!!!! "

"Not By Might"

So i wz thinkn of ideas 4 my next update & i asked a friend 4 ideas. He suggested dat i talk about Zechariah 4:6 "then he answered and spake unto me saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord" ....a conversation between an angel of the Lord and Joshua....

I learnt earlier dat as a christian I need to apply the word of God to my life in a practical way. So here goes

Recently went 4 a job interview. Had tried previously 2 get a job but it never worked. So dis time, i jst assumed it wz 1 of da random applications.  Got a call back & b4 i knew it, i had done a phone interview & just finished a face-to-face interview last friday. Still waiting 4 da final response. Although certain things seem a bit blurry, I know that through it all God is my Guide

And here is where Zechariah 4:6 applies...dat through it all, it's never been by my strength nor by my power but by the spirit of the Lord that is able to sustain.

I am grateful dat these past few weeks God has been my help in every thing...He is always behind the scenes working even when I forget to acknowledge His presence at times..

THANK YOU GOD.... :-)

STUCK!!!

There's so much out there that i can blog about.. But i seem to be stuck on what to blog about next....Any ideas?

aphogee and sulphur 8

Just recently i found that i had too much flakiness in my hair. I used olive oil shampoo and conditioner but with time the flakiness returned. I had decided to just stick to a few products but I needed to do something about my scalp so I went to get some sulfur 8 shampoo (£2.99) and i chose to treat my hair with Aphogee 2 step protein treatment (£5.99). I heard aphogee is quite good bcz it contains keratin; a protein essential for hair growth...

I washed my hair with the sulfur 8, treated with aphogee, waited for a while and blow dried. The hair hardened which i was forewarned  and i rinsed it out without combing through to prevent breakage.

The flakiness reduced with the sulfur 8. I'm still waiting to see the result of the aphogee treatment in a month's time coz i have a weave in now.



My hair after wash and treatment (total shrinkage)

My ideal hair products

I was just watching beautiful brown babydoll's video about her weightloss and hair growth and i just thought about the ideal ingredients i would include in my hair product if i were to have my way
http://www.youtube.com/user/BeautifulBrwnBabyDol


Here's my list


Shea Butter- (moisturises and detangles hair)
honey-(conditions)
olive oil
coconut oil
rose water +glycerine - (nice smell)
yoghurt +mango= (love them both)
lemon- clarify
water
aloe vera


of course this might probably not be a good idea to combine them all but each on it's own will give a brilliant result. But you may never know...they might work well together...hmm I should start making my own hair products shouldn't I?

Update

Hello everyone,
Just thought it'd be nice to update my blog, coz i haven't done it in such a loooong time (and i mean long)...wow!!...Been too busy with Uni work.
Anyway I've done quite a few hairstyles and i thought why not, might as well show u. so here goes!
BOX BRAIDS
It's quite long but i always wanted one yet didn't wanna pay for it; costs £60 (lol i'm too tight sometimes) so I figured might as well do it myself.
After 4 days and 41/2 packs of expression hair braids it was finally done.

hair extension colours=  1, 1B, & 33

Seems quite stupid but i cut them shorter after a week coz i jst couldn't handle the weight (some of us have very small heads lol) + the heat (summer)
