Do you love yourself?
Do you love yourself?
It’s a fun fun lovey-dovey mushy post today!
Our dear friends are getting married tomorrow and it just makes me feel so mushy and squishy and everything. I remember our wedding day in flashes and the pictures and videos really help me step back in time.
My fav memory of our pre-wedding season was when we were “building” our playlist of songs that we wanted to dance to or at the very least, listen to at the wedding. In the spirit of love and happiness, let’s talk about the songs we wanted for the wedding and what we got!
How are you doing?
Guess what’s happening on Sunday? It’s Mother’s Day… Again!
Tomorrow is Valentine’s day! Are you ready?
Two, to tell you that there is a Red Lippie for you out there, just keep searching. lol.
So, I asked a question on Twitter and I got a few responses:
Can you tell me what your favourite red lipstick is? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.❤️

So many different options!
I want to share one of my fav Matte Lipstains from last year, that served me really well! It is the Ruby Kisses Matte Lip Lacquer in RML 09 Ruby.
Yesss, I am cheesy enough to take my photos wearing it in front of a Red Wall. Az pa, falantine babe.
Let me know what your fav red lippie is in the comments below. Also, how are you spending Valentine’s day this year?
Happy Red Day in advance.
Love and Light,
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I had what I wanted to post today, I mean it’s love Sunday… The very tenets of love that I hold dear are found in 1 Corinthians 13. So, I was going to share my everyday interpretation of that scripture…
Then, I went to church…
I am so sure that when the MOG was preaching today, he was talking about Faith. Maybe it was the Valentine in the air that made me receive Love. Not sure, but there were a couple of scriptures that Pst. Poju O shared today that resonated with my belief about Love and I’m going to share them with us.
Turn with me to the 2nd book of Corinthians, the 8th Chapter. In this Chapter, Paul is talking about giving but I caught one kain sweet Rhema today that gave me a clear understanding of what love is. This is The Message (MSG) translation from verse 11:
Once the commitment is clear, you do what you can, not what you can’t.
The heart regulates the hands.
This isn’t so others can take it easy
while you sweat it out. No, you’re shoulder to shoulder with them all
the way, your surplus matching their deficit, their surplus matching
your deficit. In the end you come out even.
As it is written,
Nothing left over to the one with the most,
Nothing lacking to the one with the least.
So, this is what love looks like. Partnership. The melding of gifts to minister to God, one another and others. It is work, yes. Fulfilling work. I think my favourite part of this scripture is:
your surplus matching their deficit, their surplus matching your deficit.
I have re-read this scripture a number of times today and my take on love, where there is a clear commitment, has changed. I want to explain it but I am not yet sure how I should. I really want you to read and re-read this scripture and share your interpretation with me.
I have a question. I’d really love it if we could share our answers in the comments section below.
Yesterday, we talked about what we earning-saving-investing-spending folk can do
So, let’s say we’ve been too busy to eat in, and our days have been made of Cold Rice and Beans from Chicken Republic… It’s Valentine’s Day… Let’s do something different.

Welcome to the month of love. (Imagine that I just said that in my sexy OAP voice – #sidegoals. YES. #SideGoals because I have my main goals and being an OAP will just be, you know, a side goal).
I love LOVE. No, really. The expression of it, the highs and lows of totally giving of yourself to others… Love is a beautiful thing (
It’s Don Jazzy Again!)
Today, we will be talking about love songs! Thanks Berry Dakara for the berry awesome tip.

I love this one too! Especially, the Pentatonix Cover – It makes me feel really giddy! I just want to pull out my pop-poms and cheer the lover’s name to the world! *wink*
*sniffs* I don’t want to talk about this song.
I know this is a gospel song and I am sure that it is okay to share this with your loved ones. xoxo.
This is my love jam!
