Sisterhood is a special bond between two or more women (not always blood-related) who honour, respect and love each other. Well, I happen to have a blood-sister who fits that description whom I want to recognize today, not only because it’s her birthday but also for her constant care, generosity, trust, open heart, time and unconditional love.
God knew what He was doing when He picked you as my big sister. He knew you and I would create the perfect sisterhood.
I thank God for you and for blessing you with another year. May He grant your heart’s desires. Happy birthday!

Happy Thursday! ❤️xo
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful mothers out there. Past, Present, New (Congrats Mona!) and Soon to Be Mothers!
A special shout out to the greatest of them all…I love you Mom!!! 💗💓💕💞💖💘
Thank you for your unconditional love, your compassion, all of the sacrifices and the labour you invested into us, your children…you are truly amazing!
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
(Proverbs 31:25-31 NIV)

Here’s another special edition on menswear…The ‘GQ’ Edition!!! 😉
Accessorizing is a MUST when it relates to men attire. It is such an important thing to remember…it can change a man’s look from average to GQ with a simple addition. It’s all about the shoes, belts, ties and clips, handkerchiefs, pins, cufflinks, wallets, scarves, bags and jewelry. Not to forget…The Socks! They can make or break the outfit (dramatic voice). LOL
Check out D.Lo London’s website (here). They are an up and coming unique London brand who specialize in an exclusive range of high quality premium socks. Enjoy!

I once heard this tree analogy from Tyler Perry…explaining that everyone in your life is placed inside the tree test: you have “leaf” people, “branch” people and “root “people.
Like leaves on a tree, they are only there for a season. You can’t depend on them or count on them because they are weak and only there to give you shade. They take what they need and are gone when it gets cold or a wind blows.
Although they are stronger than leaves, you must be careful with them. They will stick around through most seasons, but they break away after a storm or two. You have to test them out before you run out there and put all your weight on them. In most cases, they just can’t handle the weight.
Like the roots of a tree, they are hard to find because they are not trying to be seen. Their purpose is to nourish, feed, water you and to help you live a strong and healthy life. When you thrive, they are happy. They stay low key and don’t let the world know that they are there. They hold you up through the storm.
Just as a tree has many limbs and many leaves, there are few roots. If you can find people in your life who are like the roots of a tree then you have found something special..
I THANK GOD FOR MY ROOTS! I pray I can also be the “root” in your lives.
