Prophetic Words From Hallelujah Festival

The ongoing one-hour Hallelujah Challenge which has so far recorded super-duper great testimonies ends in a grand celebration as Hallelujah Festival. It was "oh my God!!!". Never been any like it. 

Hallelujah Festival


The Hallelujah Festival held at Glitz Event Centre located at Plot 2, Block 2 Okunde Blue Water Scheme, off Remi Oluwude Street, Lekki 2nd Roundabout (Marwa Bustop), Lekki, Lagos. It started at 10pm yesterday until about 2am this morning.

5 Life Lessons I Learnt From Travelling On My Birthday

I had gone through the events lined up for the weekend and realized that I was going to be travelling back to Lagos, Nigeria on my birthday. "I'm going to be on the road on my birthday. Can you imagine?" I told my friends. Then they gave me the "eeyah" soundtrack (an expression that shows sympathy).

I was totally apprehensive about June 26, 2017. But when the day came, I explored it with a free spirit. I discovered life.

Life Lessons From Travelling


Travelling on June 26 has opened my eyes to some things about life - things that are common or maybe undervalued, but have great significance: Life Is Like Travelling.

I love to explore.

I explore moments in my life - everything I see, feel, think, wear and know is turned inside-out.

One moment can teach you more than a classroom, job, or relationship ever will.

Dear Diary, This Is All I Want

I was planning to post about how my birthday went, but I feel prompted to share something else.

Dear Diary
26/06/2017
00:00AM
~ All I Want ~


I am happy. I am at peace with God. I am at peace with myself.

For the first time in my life, I don't want a birthday cake, gift of shoes and those things I have considered fanciful.

Happy Birthday To Me And The Blog!!!

I've been wondering what to write for my birthday and third blogiversary. It's a double celebration!

🎵Now singing 'You Covered Me' by Frank

My Birthday


It's my birthday! I am excited and I feel a little bit of anxiety too. The clock won’t stop ticking (yet), and there is so much to be done. I continue to believe the purpose of my life is bigger than me, and hope I am doing enough (preparation) to make all my grand dreams come true.

I frequently write and talk about LIVING WITH PASSION, and hope I am actually exploring every day full of life. There is so much living to be done. I want to suck life out of life that life has no life in itself anymore. It's that even possible? Lol. We'll see.

STYLE: The Vibes Of Black With Red

There is power in colours. The emotions tied into the colours of clothes we wear are what give the colours their power and meaning. The important question is now: am I giving off the right 'vibe?' Am I wearing the right colours that suit me and my personality?

Black With Red Vibes


I find the field of Colour Science quite fascinating, especially since it's not a huge one (researching my post on 'how colours affect your mood' was way playful than I'd thought it would be). After connecting with my clothes to find out how they affect my mood, I knew I had a very exciting ingredient to add to my Style Statement.

What Maturity Means

Yay! My birthday is in 4 days. I've been asked how old I am in the past couple of days, and when I revealed, some expressed how they thought I was older while others exclaimed they thought I was younger.

I asked each party WHY they thought so. Most of them considered when I graduated from the university and others considered ALL the crazy things I do.

Well, we may think that maturity is about age and physical development, but that's wrong. Age is only a number! Found this article on a Christian WhatsApp group and thought to share.

20 Definitions Of Maturity


1. Maturity is when you accept other people the way they are and their level of maturity.

2. Maturity is when you understand that your ideas are not always the best.

What To Do When You Meet A Celebrity

Can you be friends with celebrities? Yes. It's hard, but it is not impossible.

I’ve stumbled and bumbled when I meet celebrities, especially early on the red carpet moments (more on that later). But my mistakes have taught me a few things. So, here a few tips I’ve picked up along the way . . .

When You Meet A Celebrity

There are always many chances at some point in life when you’ll meet someone who is quite famous. It could be an actor, a musician, or a best-seller author. Or perhaps, a VIP of some sort, like a well-known blogger, entrepreneur or the CEO of a company.

When the opportunity presents itself, you have to make a choice: do you want to be seen as just another fan or would you like to take a shot at developing a professional or even personal relationship?

DIARY: Currently Singing This Hymn

If you are in a contemporary worship church, then you probably sing it. If you listen to Christian radio or keep up with gospel music industry, then you probably know it. And you probably love it. I do!

Jesus Keep Me In Your Love


Jesus keep me in Your love
There to dwell forever.
Fill me with Your own Spirit.
There to serve You ever.

Passionate People Suffer For What They Enjoy

Let's talk about passion a little bit more today. I found a definition that had me gasping for air. *mouth still opened*

Suffering With Passion


Life is challenging, unpredictable, and busy. Life throws us lemons (as a speaker said) and curve balls, we get confused, we squeeze the juice out of the lemonade and we swing hoping to find a balance. But how do we keep living with positivity, inspiration and love?

The answer is one word:

12 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up (Or Be A Fashionista)

About two weeks ago, someone made a comment that got me thinking deeply about the things we wear and WHY we wear them. The person was indirectly asking "why are YOU looking so gorgeous?" as if wearing something cute that makes you feel good is a "weird" thing to do!

Being a blogger (lol), I was inspired to make a post to help you in those awkward moments where you're being asked why you wear what you wear too.

Why Dress Up


Quite a number of people assume you need to follow the latest trends to be fashionable, but nah. If you mix a plain white t-shirt with denim one day and a black pencil skirt another day, you've got two outfits right there!

All it takes is for you to be creative and intentional.

Who Is Ready To Win N10,000 With A Cheery On Top?

Am I excited or what! Can you believe that this little blog officially turns three on the 26th of June?! Oh my, I know I can’t.

1,2,3 years . . . Wow!

As a thank you, I am putting together a little giveaway. I wish I had done this earlier but logistics. Phew. Anyway, it's better late than never, right?

I reached out to few brands for sponsorship so I could give something mega to each and every one of you. But, none has pulled through yet. I hope that two of you will really love to receive these prizes.

Giveaway


Blogging this year has been more than challenging; BUT it has totally been worth it. Through it all, I have learnt a lot about myself and my journey, about working with brands and just how life can be funny at times.

Dear Diary, It Is For His Name's Sake

I woke up to the knowledge that God will NOT let me fail on this journey just for the sake of His name.

For Your Name's Sake


When I go down the path of sin and lose my bearing, You, my God restore my soul. You guide me in paths of righteousness for Your name's sake. I am created, saved and sanctified for Your name's sake.

Because You are my Shepherd,

I commit all that I ever need to You  .

You are the Provider of the platforms for me to perform,

When You Love God But Lust After The Opposite Sex

Are you shocked that I struggle? Please, don't be. For months I fought a losing battle against lust. It wouldn’t be profitable for me to go into detail describing my defeats. Just so you know I’ve been there.

Overwhelmed With Lust


I am one of those women who have found myself struggling with lust. I am not addicted to pornography or masturbation, but I am distracted to lust after handsome (can I say "hot"?), tall and smart men.

STYLE: Release Through Dance

Happy Sunday! Went to church? Did you dance? I danced!

Repressed emotions get stored up in our body and can cause fatigue, anxiety and illnesses. Dance and see how it all goes away.

Dance Expression 


I am highly expressive with my emotions. I necessarily don't have to spell out my feelings because my works of art is my voice.

I write. I voice. I sew. I model.

The One-Hour Hallelujah Challenge On Instagram

While you are sleeping (and probably snoring), the cool ones are praising and having fun like children.

#HallelujahChallenge


It's a melodious June. Don't let anyone steal your peace and joy. Join in the fun!

It would be counted for me as selfishness if I never told you to join the hallelujah challenge on Instagram with @nathanielblow live every midnight (00:00 AM Nigeria Time). It's one of the best things to happen this month.

Can My Colleagues And I Be Friends?

Hiya! I like how today's topic merges Love-Wednesday with Career-Wednesday. Nice!

It might be tempting to hang out at the canteen/kitchen half the time and indulge in the latest gists or have a friendly sport fight. But these easy friendships with coworkers must be handled with care.

Should Colleagues Become Friends?


I make friends easily.

I am so good at connecting with people, but the only problem is I am terrible when it comes to staying in touch. The friends who are closest to me right now are the ones who made the effort. And I don't take credit for that.

Dear Diary, Here's What I Am Feeling Like

My birthday is in 20 days. I’ve learned that it takes a great deal of courage to lay down everything you know and everything you feel.

Mixed Feelings 


June usually come with excitement. But for the past three years, the excitement wraps itself up with anxiety.

Everything Else Is Window Dressing

Your relentless passion for God is your true testimony. Everything else is window dressing.

In Your Heart Of Hearts



The worst thing about falling for social media Christianity is that the first person you deceive is yourself.

STYLE: This Combination Is Something Else!

If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of not being able to wear an amazing skirt because none of your tops go with it, you'll understand my excitement about this outfit.

The Perfect Combination


When it comes to fashion, every one deserves to tell their own unique story with the clothes they wear. Wearing the same outfit as every other person just doesn’t cut it for those who have a story to tell—who have discovered their style statement

I have a story to tell. In fact, three stories!

Papa Ajasco's Big Stomach Is Not Fake

Who remembers Papa Ajasco?! Many of us grew up watching him. I met the real Papa Ajasco on Monday. He still looks the same!

Papa Ajasco


Papa Ajasco as a personality is a brand. I tell you. His role in 'The Ajasco Family' is so prominent. He left the show for a while, but he’s back on the show now.

Nobody can be like Papa Ajasco. He is an icon.

Just Play On, Baby!

The sweetest month is here!!! Happy June!!! It's my birthday month!!! I'm happy and sad!!! Lol.

I accidentally sat on a piano yesterday and found this inspiration.

Like The Piano

May 31, 2017

Life is like a piano. The white keys represent happiness, the black keys show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys make music too . . . I totally agree with Ehssan.
