Me Before You: Movie Review (Response)

So I was going through a daily Guardian news update and this article caught my eye. Why? I saw these three words: me, before, and you.Nothing incredible about them, right? But in that order, they form the title of a book that touched my heart.  I read Me Before You almost two years ago, and it touched me so deeply I blogged about it here. So, of course I clicked on the link thinking, ‘What are they saying about the book now?Continue reading “Me Before You: Movie Review (Response)”

Music Haul!

I subscribe to a newsletter from New Release Tuesday (a wonderful Christian resource website). It’s a great way to keep up-to-date with Christian music. They also give free weekly downloads. Which is how I came across J Han – a very interesting rapper. Who led me to AMP Movement – a Christian music collective, Which, in turn, led me to the topic of today – Sam Ock. Listen to some awesome music

Easy-Peasy DIY Facial Toner

FullSizeRender

I absolutely adore Lush cosmetics! My goodness, I could spend hours and oodles of cash in one of their shops. Their products have the best scents, and results ever. Every time I go in to get something specific, I leave the shop with at least one more product – no matter how much I try to resist! The only drawback is the steep prices 😦 (especially on a student budget which I was on at the time 😀 ). Oh and they have fabulous customer service! Someone is always there to answer your questions, and make suggestions. This is beginning to sound like a Lush ad… 😀 But I love, love, love it!

One day, I went in for hair moisturiser (they have this absolutely gorgeous one called R&B- it’s the best thing ever I tell you), but I stumbled on a tea tree facial toner that I knew I had to try. It was one of the cheapest things in the store, and I  was like, “Yup, I’m definitely taking this home.” It worked beautifully! But one of my friends (an amazing lady called Livvy who makes a large number of her cosmetics herself) recommended I make mine. See how to make yours

Who Are You?

WAY

To stop my brain from degenerating and possibly exploding during a 13-hour layover, I march to the airport bookstore and spend the next half-hour searching for the perfect book. When I read the synopsis of Me Before You by someone named Jojo Moyes, I know I have exactly what I need. Continue reading “Who Are You?”

OC Ukeje gets married and destroys a myth!

No, my blog hasn’t become a gossip site. 😀 This is a very uncharacteristic post, but I just had to do it! Someone put up a post about his wedding on Facebook and something caught my eye. Continue reading “OC Ukeje gets married and destroys a myth!”

Make Lemonade!

“You can be bitter, or you can better.”

The first time I came across Alex Boye’s (Boh-yay) work was when I watched his cover of the popular song from Frozen – Let It Go (watch here). It was pretty captivating, but I didn’t really notice him, I was mostly taken by the young female lead, and I forgot about him. That was until I came across The Piano Guys cover of Coldplay’s Paradise (watch Peponi) – which I absolutely love. Now, The Piano Guys… That’s a story for another day (just know I think they’re great!).

Anyway, back to Mr Boye. Continue reading “Make Lemonade!”
