Be Confident in Who You Are

Hello world, 
Over my short years in life, I have come to realize that confidence will take you to places you never imagined. Happiness is ....Not Guaranteed. It is fleeting, but most importantly, Happiness is... A choice. 
It's a choice we all have to make at various points in our lives. If one always has to wait for the perfect conditions, or situations before s/he can be happy, that individual might live most of their life a sad, sad person.

I have learned that in life that our situations or conditions aren't always how we want them to be and if you wait for everything to be perfect, you'll most likely never find happiness. Which brings me to today's topic about being confident. 
We've heard of the phrase "Fake it to make it", and while I personally think it's best to "Faith it to make it", the sentiments remain the same. 

We all have to, at different points in our lives, Choose to be confident or let fear ruin our lives and stunt our dreams. 
The decision to choose the path of faith, not fear isn't always an easy decision.

I am not saying that one shouldn't feel fear or express their sadness at certain situations, because the gloomy, fearful and sad days will come. But I have learnt that the quicker I am able to shake off those feelings, the better I am able to focus on the brighter things in life. 

SO dear friends, I hope that you make the conscious decision to always see the brighter side of life. Sit up tall in who you are and remember you are a child of the one true king. 

Count your blessings and make the best of every moment. Go forth and conquer this life you've been blessed with!

That's it for today, 
Thanks for visiting. God Bless

Le Boo and I's First Time

Hi humans, 

How are you doing today? 

I am featuring Le Boo on the blog today because he was such a great sport and wore this gorgeous dashiki fabric with me and He willingly agreed to take pictures without the need for me to blackmail him. LOL... SOooo glad I married him!

So as the title connotes, this was our first time wearing the dashiki fabric print and must I say, WE NEED MORE! Oh wait, did my title make you think otherwise? Ooops, my bad. LOL 
Keep reading though, now that you're here... :)

I chose to pair my brightly colored dashiki with white pants and this gorgeous platform heeled shoes,. While my husband wore his with black pants and shoes. 

I am enjoying wearing lots of African prints lately and I believe it's because of how easily accessible they've gotten. 

These are from Perfect Dyeing Center.

In case you're wondering where I got this pair of pants that were Very comfortable even on the wheelchair. They are jeggings from walmart. Comfortable, stretchy and looks great! I always have to wash them every time I wear them though.. lol... The wheelchair tires aren't nice and I just attract dirt so very much. Eeek

Anyway yall, that's it for today. 
Hope you guys enjoyed this post and my title didn't confuse you. Hahahaha
Feel free to tell me about Your first time wearing dashiki in the comment section. *wink*

Till Later, God Bless.

Home Decor with Orchid Plant from HedgeScapes

Hi humans, 

I hope you are all having a wonderful day wherever you are!

Lately, I have been dreaming about home decor thanks to hours spent on watching HGTV and home decor videos on youtube!  Do you enjoy home decor? Don't forget to share some of your fave shows, and decor tips with me in the comment sections. 

Personally, I honestly cannot tell you how much I have learnt that plants and flowers have a lush way of making your home look AMAZING and alive! 

After this great discovery of mine, I was faced with a little problem called "allergies" and also the fact that I most certainly can't keep a plant alive no matter how hard I try. So I knew I had to get plants that looked real but were not real. Almost every plant I found in my local stores looked plastic and fake, but thanks to Hedgescapes for their array of indoor and outdoor faux plants. You can get flowers or artificial boxwood hedge to spruce up your home with just a click from their website.

I was able to get some nice faux plants for our home. The flowers are silk and they look and feel so real!!

This beautiful white orchids came just as you can see in these pictures. The vase and everything came together like this - neatly packaged and it made for the perfect center piece for our living room side table. 

I just love how beautiful and real the flowers look, and I'm excited that they will forever look perfect and not wither. LOL. I also love that I don't have to worry about allergies since they are faux flowers. 

 I am still working on decorating our entire home, and I hope that I can someday show you he finished work, but for now, enjoy my fave corner in our living room featuring this gorgeous Orchid masterpiece.

Styling Adire Print Bag - Tye Dye

 Hello loves,

I have got another style post featuring one of my most loved bags of the moment. I will be carrying this pretty much throughout the summer and you can't tell me NOTHING!

As a Nigerian, the "tie/dye" Adire print is not new to me, but I had mostly only seen it as outfits. With fashion forever evolving and returning, The Perfect Dyeing center is Bringing the love of adire back.
I decided to style my Adire bag with a simple black dress and blazer.

I love how structured the bag is and the making is certainly top notch. The chain straps can be worn in a long length or folded for a shorter look. The bag is very spacious and sits nicely. 
The perfect dyeing center offers free shipping in USA, and they have a lovely money back guarantee.
