A Note Of Thanks

It’s thanksgiving!! to those that celebrate; Happy Thanksgiving, as for me everyday is thanksgiving day. I have a lot to be grateful for.
I’m thankful for everyday that I open my eyes and see the light, for the air that I breathe, I’m thankful, I may not deserve to see each day that I do but I’m blessed with such mercy. Thank you God!
I’m thankful for the opportunities I’m blessed with and I hope to make my parents proud someday.
I’m thankful for my friends and my enemies; I’m thankful for the friends who have been there for me through thick and thin, through tears and laughter, both those who lent a shoulder to cry on and those who didn’t (I’m sure you have your reasons).
I’m thankful for my parents of whom i came into this world through. Had you not done the deed that you did in the bedroom I wouldn’t be here, so I guess I’m thankful for marriage and sex as well. 
I’m thankful for love; I am loved and I love back. 
I’m thankful for each struggle that I go through. Life is a bed of rose, I contradict those who say it’s not, because roses have thorns, the rose depicting the fa├žade we put up in the world and the thorns are the struggles and brokenness we try to hide from the world. Each struggle makes me a stronger person, moulding me to be the woman I will be tomorrow.
I am thankful for who I am. I couldn’t choose a better person to be. I am a beautiful imperfection; perfect in my own ways.
I am thankful for everything. This list would be endless if I start counting my blessings one by one. I’m just thankful for the countless blessings that I have. Keep being thankful not just in your heart but by showing appreciation as well, not only on days like this but everyday, you never know when your time would be up or whoever it is you’ve always wanted to show appreciation to but never did or always put off till another time. 
What are you thankful for?

Woman of Inspiration

She’s beautiful, She’s sweet, She’s crazy, She’s fun and She’s successful, if you don’t know her by the end of this article you damn right will. She’s the one and only Tyra Banks. I’m not here to write a biography of her for you, I’m just here to sing her praises.
I have adored and loved this woman from tender age, I remember telling people I wanted to be a supermodel like Tyra Banks but that didn’t work out, and then the Tyra Banks show came out and I said I wanted a TV show as well, don’t worry I’m not some crazy stalker Tyra wanna be. She’s phenomenal, she’s advised and changed the lives of many through her TV show and her programme; America’s next top model. You hear her story and you know she’s not a quitter, rejected by modelling agencies, ridiculed for her glamorous big forehead but wasn’t broken neither was she discouraged, she persevered because she had a dream in her heart and she’s achieved it, is achieving it and will continue to achieve it. Each time I watch her on ANTM, I’m in awe and one day I said to myself, I may not be a supermodel but it’s too soon to say I won’t have my own TV show but even if that doesn’t happen, I know this for sure, I wanna leave my footprint behind; I wanna make people’s dreams come alive mostly cause I couldn’t have all of mine, I wanna change lives and bring happiness to the people who think they don’t deserve it and I want to be Tyra’s successor :D (wishful thinking).
Of course she’s not perfect, no one is, but she has accepted her imperfection and used what God has blessed her with and that makes her a beautiful imperfection. Keep doing what you do Tyra. I couldn’t have picked a better woman of inspiration. Who’s yours?

Less Is More...

Familiar expression? Good, then why don't you act it? Let us not in the name of fashion drown ourselves in a collection of accessories, a myriad of colours or pattern artwork. The less, the better; make that you motto, live it, love it, breath it. If you must accessorise, accessorise elegantly, if you must mix colours, please bear in mind that people would stare at you, try not to blind them. Take it from these people:
