Life doesn't come with a manual, it comes with a mother because there is no self-seeking or opportunism in a mother’s heart.💗💗 Our mothers worked hard and made sacrifices, so our lives would be better.Their love is the most sincere kind and their boundaries made us a better person. Mothers are the emotional backbones of the family and have long provided the holding place for everyone’s feelings. The one thing that is irreplaceable, is the love of a mother.

You can't truly care for anyone until you have learned to love yourself. It's hard for someone who has never experience love and nurturing to provide it to someone else because they have no idea what it feels like. This is why self love is paramount. In the words of Lucille Ball, "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in the world". #selflove #selfcareveryday #selfcareroutine #selfcare #loveyourself #dateyourself #beyourself #ukblogger #londonblogger #valentines #postvalentines

"Love is not love which alters it when alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove: O no! It is an ever fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wandering bark whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle’s compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out, even to the edge of doom.”- Sonnet 116 Although we are married now but amongst the many memorable moments for me, it's when I and René met. Today happens to be our first meeting anniversary and you will never believe how I met my husband.❤️♥️(SWIPE FOR MORE PICTURES👉) Click the link on my bio to read.

Love. An indescribable feeling that brings people together and helps them overcome life’s many challenges. Depths of organic, raw, genuine, authentic emotions sprinkled with laughter, joy, and happiness. For there will be days of gloom, but to go through it with that one special person. Not behind or in front... but right next to that person. Sending Love to all of you from me and my dearest René. ❤️❤️ Happy Valentines day.

It's 2 days to Valentine ! Who is excited?!? ❤️❤️💝 The lockdown means we are unable to celebrate #valentine in the ways many are familiar with. Nonetheless, we shall do so with a different approach. We live in an age where consumerism is the norm - so one calls for Simplicity, for it is an inward reality that results in an outward life-style. Freedom from anxiety is characterised by three inner attitudes— If what we have we receive as a gift, and if what we have is to be cared for by God, and if what we have is available to others, then we will possess freedom from anxiety. Learning to hold everything lightly as a custodian, who will one day leave it all behind will create a sense to give away rather than hoard. Love is an expression and in its purest form is simple. Simplicity frees us from the tyranny of self, the tyranny of things and the tyranny of people. We would do well to follow the counsel of Thoreau: "Simplify, Simplify". So, what are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Is it #simple? Comment below 💝💝

There's something about the snow that makes me happy. I like when it snows, because of the cosy feeling it gives when you are indoors. It snowed few days back and we decided to go out to do some photo shoot with the snow (swipe to see more pictures). We had so much fun outdoors. You can read all about the fun things we did on my blog (link in the bio). Do you like to stay indoors when it snows or outdoors?

I appreciate plants a lot more now that I work from home. Indoor plants don't just look good, they enhance our well being. A few days into the New Year, we shopped around for some plants to enhance the vibe at home. I have realised that plants add life to a sterile space, giving privacy and caring for them can be incredibly therapeutic! It’s true when people say ‘Plants Make People Happy’. Do you have plants in your home? Swipe to see some of the beautiful plants we got.

My mood this week is to be absolutely stylish, because you know, style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.

Going into the New Year is always a time to reflect and set goals. I like to include self-care in my new year’s goal settings as self care can be a variety of things I enjoy— reading been one of them. I started reading this book ‘ Celebration of Discipline’ by Richard Foster again. As I like to re-read books that impact me and this book is one of them. The discipline of mediation is one that I’ve cultivated. It’s a time to stay quiet and allow God to speak to you— as Christians, we know God is always speaking to us but can we honestly say we are tuned in? Most times, the distractions around us stop us from listening and hearing him. I like to implement some of the options suggested by Richard in his book. Staying calm and waiting to be directed sets us ready for the day— not going in without a purpose, but taking charge of my day having a clear purpose for it— this can be every part of your day including the mundane aspects of it too. Tell me, how do you mediate? Do you find meditation helpful?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Finally, the year 2020 has come to an End. To My Creator = I say Thank You. To my true friends = I appreciate you all. To those who showed me love = I'm grateful. To those I showed love to = I still love you and I ALWAYS WILL. To those who helped me =I am so grateful and will reciprocate in due season. THANK YOU FOR MAKING 2020 A FRUITFUL YEAR 4 ME. WISHING YOU A PROSPEROUS 2021🎊🎊

New Year in a bit!! Growing up, my family didn't celebrate Christmas because of our beliefs.

My self-care ritual keeps me balanced. I don’t know about you, but I can only give what I have. Most times, when I feel dry and empty it’s a combination of things— my spiritual life is not balanced or my physical life is not in sync or my emotional life is running low. ⠀ ⠀ When I spend some time alone, I’m able to reconnect with these aspects of my being to understand which one or ones are low. ⠀ ⠀ How can I spend time alone, you may ask?! Don’t worry, these are conversations we will have on other days as we journey together. ⠀ ⠀ For today, it’s deep facial conditioning. How often do you do this? ⠀ ⠀ It’s important to cleanse your skin especially your face every month at the most. This allows for your pores to open and dead skin to be removed.⠀ ⠀ Leaving your face feeling tender, eliminating roughness — giving you a refreshed, rejuvenated skin and face. ⠀ ⠀ Most times, the complement I get is that my face is glowing after a deep conditioning— we all like a nice compliment every so often, right?! ⠀ ⠀ Make it a MUST in #2021 for a healthy glowing face! 🥳🎄

Watch us as we talk about our engagement day and all the little details my husband had in mind that I didn't know about. Including all the romantic gestures. Coming soon in my next vlog.

It's 2 years day since our engagement. I vividly still remember every detail of that day!💍 Exactly a day like this but of course without the lockdown . It was the perfect engagement. The most spectacular event in 2018 for me. 💑💑 The location, Paris, made it all the more worthwhile. What better place to get engaged than in the City of Love.❤ Read all the details on my blog.

Christmas is always a time of the year to rest, join with family and friends ( except this year is different) to celebrate the year and reflect — looking back and looking forward has always been a great way for me to assess progress and set- backs. It’s completely fine if this year did not give us all we wanted but it certainly gave us what we NEED to survive. I know my ‘Need’ is more than my ‘Want’. We have health and life, we have everything we need — I am thankful.
