Lately I have been challenging myself with my fashion. I decided to take on the challenge by Pretty Shiny Sparkly's Bloggers to style an outfit based on coral and mint. I don’t know why but those colors remind me of The Little Mermaid and I can see Sebastian singing “under the sea”. Weird I know. Coral is the new black, instead of pairing anything with black, think coral instead.

Just created a new saying for fashion “turn your brights on” instead of “turn your lights on”. Funny I know (being sarcastic). This summer brights are the colors to wear especially Neon. One thing I like about neon is that it works for all skin tones and makes a person look energized and happy. When you put neon on a dull person they can’t help but to crack a smile. This past week at my church we had a youth conference (Saturate) and it was loaded with neon's. I was excited to go shopping out of my closet for the neon night.

This is another one of my creations in Nigeria. I wanted a maxi dress that was long enough and was unique. As you can see my mom knows how to pick great material. When the tailor made the dress at first it was short so I asked him to add extra material in the center to make it longer and I love it.

I do all the time, so what I do is if I have another event to go to I find one item that I can wear to both events. I got this striped Old Navy shirt in medium. The shirt has a beach flow feel to it.
Welcome to my blog. Creating this blog has been an idea that has been in my head since January 2012. At my church Bethany World Prayer Center, during the first 21 days of January we pray, fast, worship, read the Bible together and just pray for God’s vision for our life in that year. This is one of the visions He gave me and now I am being obedient. It was a hard process to start I had doubts but I pushed through them. I am a Registered Nurse but if I wasn’t I would have majored in fashion and became a designer. I love everything fashion since high school. In high school my family did not have a lot of money, so I would try to make my clothes not look second hand by doing DIY projects on them. I love to dress myself and other people so in this blog you will not only see fashion on me but also on other people. I want to show people you can look your best at any size and also you don’t always have to spend a lot on clothing. You have to use wisdom to budget and spend within your means. This blog is a way to encourage others and teach practical things I have learned. “Created in His image” comes from:
27 So God created human beings[a] in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
We all are created in God’s image so we should never try to become another person but try to be the best us we can be. Come along this journey with me and I hope you enjoy it.
FYI: Thanks to my great friend Lakaila for the beautiful pictures you get to see. She is talented. We both pursued something we were passionate about.
