Interview With Okbillion

Before the launch of my talk show, I will bring interviews I have had with individuals who have gone above and beyond to do things, which have left footprints that inspire others. I had a fab time interviewing this amazing man with a 'Beautiful' voice. Don't ever confuse small with insignificant. If you can dream it, then you can do it. Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible-Francis of Assisi

Today's Thought....

Saturday For The Ladiessss......

Finally its the week-end.... In a while I have not written any article on health/beauty. However when it comes to health and beauty, I dont just write recycled articles, I write on products that have been proven and tested by me. However what is good for the goose, is not always good for the gander! My analogy here(hahaha) so still test the products/regime/routine as it might not be right for you. That said, we move on...

Going on holiday? 
And you are someone with an intimidating frame like mine? hahahaha. I mean, just like me, you have been trying to work out, eat right and drink the right amount of water, but you still find out that there some parts of the body that are proving as stubborn as an elephants leg!, especially around the tummy area? Dont put the holiday swim off, just get yourself some printed swim suit like I did, they work wonders, bin the plain colour swim suit. I must say large prints are a NO! NO!, they produce the opposite effect. And if you want an improved look, get the ones with creases also. The whole body just disappears in this fabric. I got mine at Sainsburys at a discount of 50% and I so love it!!

Face Products; I have been using organic argan oil on my face from my favourite health store(Holland and Barrett). Honestly this store should make me their brand ambassador at this point as I have been doing quite a bit of marketing for them hahaha. However I discovered the organic snail face serum and face cream. For the past three weeks,I have been using it and I can say that the effect is close to magical. I just love it.

Not the best of fragrance, I must warn you. In fact I found it a bit nauseating initially but you will come to accept it with time. Its a bit pricey though, but I got them on offer again. So I just stocked up like 10 weeks supply. You wont blame me, when you spend the highest currency in the world, wisdom comes by default (hahaha)

Grooming Natural Hair Like I Am? Then I will share my products with you that have made my hair manageable which was my greatest fear when I chopped my hair in April. They are absolutely, the best hair products that I have used in a long time now. Please feel free to share any products you use, we learn everyday. I don't have a recent photo of my hair but the picture below was taken in April but the hair has since gone from good to better

Sorry guys, missed the selfie class lol! This is what I could lay my hands on. But that said. The products have  been just the right type for  tough natural hair. Give them  a  try!

Body Oil; I actually purchased the moroccan argan oil at a very good deal from Savers in  London and I use it in conjunction with my moisturiser as well as a bath oil some times.  I have got a dry skin and oily face combo, so you see where I am coming from. Its actually made in Soho London and not Morocco?? Well, don't ask me how they do it but I am liking the effect however. I stocked up on it since Feb, but I think I got it at  2.99, you cant go wrong with that can you?

Hand Cream; My hands have always been my problem area,  you wont believe my dad actually got me hand creams when I was growing up. He will just go the shops and get me hand creams, now you understand we have got a critical case here hahahaha. Fortunately I didnt grow up in the farm yet these hands could just be a let down some times. I think I would just start wearing gloves 2-4-7 like the Queen hahaha. anyways where there is a will...... there must always be a way. And a mixture of Hemp and petroleum jelly is making the way. Yes!  And I stock up from no other store but the fabulous body shop!!

 Share what works for you ladies and lets build, ladies who are beautiful inside out!!
Wishing everyone a relaxing weekend.

Your Divine Design to SUCCEED in Your Destiny —Dr. Myles Munroe

For some reason, Myles Munroe was just on my mind as I made my way to work this morning and I decided to listen to him on the go.... And this is what I listened to.... I was close to asking God, "why did you take him so soon"? But before I could mutter the words, I was reminded that a fulfilled life is not in the length of days, but in the fulfillment of purpose. May God teach us to number our days.....

Word For Today!

I came across this on a friends wall and it got me reflecting for a while and thereafter I just had to share......

"He tells the sweet tale of a little girl holding two apples. Her mother comes in and asks her for one of the apples. The girl looks up at her mum and takes a bite of one apple, then the other. The mum looks disappointed at her daughter’s selfishness. Then the little girl gives one of her bitten apples to her mum, and says: “Mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.”
Even when we think we know all of the facts and figures, and have viewed every angle of a given scenario, the truth about a situation can be a big surprise. This is one of the things that makes life so exciting — just when we think we understand something, we learn something new."

Life Realities...2

Live a life you are proud of..... beyond peoples perception of you, enjoy a relationship that is true and you are genuinely investing in beyond all the Facebook likes and Instagram followers. Enjoy fashion because it suits you and its right for you and not with the sole purpose of hitting the tabloids, enjoy the solitude of proposing to your fiancee in quietness,looking into their eyes with a determination to make the relationship work as God helps you both in your differences, and not the unrealistic energy invested in all the dramatic proposals, you are no Hollywood director and never forget, your marriage is private not public, do not divulge so much information on social media. Build it, invest in it, give it your best shot, give it your time and spend less time on the facade of window dressing on social media. We can have healthy relationships if our priorities are right.  Live Real! Enjoy Life!!  -Ellyeleanor

Thoughts On Greece....

Greece means a lot to my parents and I, actually some defining moments in our lives took place in Greece, which we hold dear. With all the austerity measures, debt crisis, attempt  of pulling out of the Euro, its just a lot happening in that country.

In my opinion, from the little economics I can recall and the bits of the financial times I read, I think they would have been better off if they stuck to the Drachma, years back. Its a lot when you let others decide what goes on in your environs to a large extent. The question is are you giving other people so much power over your life??? Anyways my thoughts as always. In a few hours, Greece decides.....
Feel free to share your thoughts.....
Have a fab weekend guys..xoxo

The Expected End Is Here....

Its the first of July today, the 1st of many 1sts, the beginning of the 2nd half of the year, and as I observed my quiet time today and reflected on everything that had been happening both intrinsic and extrinsic, I could not help but think of  the death of the holiday makers in Tunisia, for all I care, it could have been me chilling on that beach, the constant killings in cold blood,  high death tolls, I will remind you if you have forgotten of the uncountable number of migrants trying to escape from North Africa, Libya etc who had their ships/boats capsized, the ruthless killings carried out by ISIS et al, the confusion of world leaders, the dwindling economy not just for developing or underdeveloped nations but the whole world as a whole, the redefinition of morality by the society we live in, the failure of the church to seek that which is essential, but rather pursue"mega places of worship", fame ,fortune and importance, the redefinition of marriage by individuals who were not at the genesis of it...... It all points to one thing.... We are in the last days,Mt 24;6-14( 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.) take heed how you live, what you listen to, what you believe, what forms your opinion. Because the clock is ticking..... the time is short, the devil is on a rampage, you might not have a second chance, life is ephemeral and regardless of what you believe..... We must all stand to give account of the way we lived the life given to us..... 2Cor5;10(For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.).

May God help us run the race with understanding, that is, if you are in the race at all. If you stopped, please continue, running on the wrong track? make amends, not running at all? There's still time if you are reading this. Tomorrow is not guaranteed......
