Oh hello my loves. October was in and out. Just like that. Can you believe it!!?? Birthday month is soon upon us so I can NOT contain the excitement i am feeling. So much wonderful and amazing stuff has happened in the last month, I just can’t wait to wrap it up and catch you all up.

My favourite monthly products

My new devotion journal.I ordered this cute journal from African Book Hub. If you know me, you know majority of the reason I picked it was because it was pink. They have some amazing Christian books as well as cute notebooks, journals and planners! Check out their page for more information.

I am also enjoying the Smart Scales App for my violin practice. This app is giving my practice so much life recently. You have a choice of purchasing the grade that you want, or you can purchase all the scales from grade 1 to grade 8. And when I say ALL, I MEAN ALL. You can practice the scales slurred or separate, and you can also decide to have some awesome backing tracks as you play along to the scale.

Favourite Beauty Products

I am not a big beauty person, but i am beginning to understand the value of developing good skincare and beauty regimes early to protect and nurture my skin. So I am focusing attention on my face. I have been using the dettol eventone soap and it is working wonders on my face. My face also does not react to it. What a win!


I’m enjoying some pork chops and mashed potatoes from the Daily Cafe Bistro. It has become one of my favorite places to go to in the city! I can’t wait to do a proper review of this beautiful place. I love how so many beautiful cafes are opening up in the city.

Last Album I listened to

I have Ella Mai on repeat! I can not explain why her new album has me in my feelings. And she has an amazing voice too!

Book of the Month

This month I really enjoyed reading Africa 39. The book for me encapsulated some of the finest and most diverse work on the continent. I was really blown away and would encourage you to pick it up. I am keeping this brief because I will be doing a full review soon!

Last Thing I watched

Greenleaf. It has become one of my favorite series! I have heard so much about this show, and it didn’t take me long to figure out why. This show follows The Greenleaf family, which runs sprawling Memphis megachurch Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, appears to be a loving and caring clan. Beneath the surface, though, exists scandalous secrets and lies. Greed, adultery and sibling rivalry are among the issues that threaten to test the family’s faith and tear the group apart.

Thankful For

Another year round the sun Thank God I have been able to see another birthday in a week. I have to brag about God for  minute because he is just so good and faithful. I am thankful to be getting closer to another birthday.

Verse Of The Month

”Yet you Lord are our Father. We are the clay, you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.” 

Isaiah 64:8

Sending you love for the new month ahead!
