ALMOST WHITE






Doing the right thing is hard. It's not fun. Sin is all types of fun. Lately, I've struggled with doing the right thing. With forgiving and letting go. With welcoming people with open arms after they've hurt me. The prayer to God to "Forgive my sins as I forgive others" crossed my heart. And God said; "would you like me to forgive you the way you forgive others?" Then it hit me. Forgiveness isn't something you do for others, it is something you do for yourself....for your relationship with God...


I love a good all-white outfit. However, whenever I plan to do that, I always change my mind last minute. I swop my white blazer for this one. Maybe some day, I'll actually pull an all white outfit together and stick with it; but today, it's an Almost all white outfit.

Zara Blazer

BLOOMING SEASON








 I love this plant opposite my house. I named it Henry. It looks like a Henry to me for some reason. I think it’s a pretty plant. I also think my skirt is really pretty. Put side by side, both the skirt and Henry are really pretty. They are not in competition with each other. They can both equally be pretty. I kind of thought about this in relation to women. Why can’t we all just be pretty? Different kind of pretty but equally pretty. I read somewhere that a flower doesn't compete with other flowers, it just blooms. I challenge all women to just bloom....shine. There is more than one star tinkling in the sky; but each star is equally beautiful.
In other news, I am by default, a worrier. I've found myself worrying about my exams. I keep worrying about my exams. In between my worries, I say a quick passionless prayer. You know, the kind you sometime say to fulfill your Christian obligations. But I have realised from passion-filled prayers and quality time with God that, worrying makes you self-focused instead of God-focused. The only way you ever worry about failing is when you are doing something by yourself and not by His GRACE. So, if you’re a little bit like me in that respect, quit worrying and praying for grace.
It's another Virgos Lounge day on the blog. I paired this oh so famous VL skirt with a simple blouse because the skirt is so serious and fancy, I really just wanted a laid-back look with it. I kinder tweaked the skirt because that slit was just way too high for me. So my mum helped me stitch a pleated chiffon material to it.

A LITTLE SHEER. A LITTLE FLORAL. A SINCERE APOLOGY.

Sometimes, when you haven't spoken to a friend for such a long time, it's a bit awkward. You want to say so much but can't find the words. That's how I feel. 










About a year ago, I had to take a break off blogging. I didn't want to but I HAD to. My future was calling me and I needed to answer. But I forgot that sometimes, it's okay to take your past into your future. The past isn't necessarily a bad thing. I should have carried you along. I shouldn't have left without explanations and for that, I truly apologise.

I was overwhelmed by the amount of love I got from people asking where I was and if  I was going to blog again. You guys are honestly the coolest.

So what have I really been up to? Put simply, I am preparing for an exam to become a lawyer. The tricky thing is over 5000 of us are taking this exam on the same day...at the same time and I have to try to somehow stand out. So I don't have much of a life for now. But in a month's time, I'll be as free as a bird (for another month & back to work after that) so I plan on blogging again.

I just went for a simple laid back look. In my defence, I didn't realise how tiny this skirt was until I took the pictures and I was like WHOA!!! I will probably go and add material to it because as I've always said "indecency is not my portion"
