It is my birthday today !
I hear of people who say they dread getting older? Not me! Just like a child in a candy shop, I am always very excited and look forward to my birthdays. Honestly, everyone around me knows and they go along with the flow especially my sons. This is the case because of the birthday memories I had as a child which I shared in my birthday memories.
Even though I do not throw parties no matter what the age, I celebrate, I rejoice, I sing for joy, I am thankful and most importantly, I ask God to teach me to number my days. Talking about numbering my days, I shared some of the things I do as I get older on video here.
There is nothing wrong in throwing parties though 🙂
Since it is my birthday today, I decided to share some of these photos which were shot for a Magazine in February with you. I will share more with you when the magazine eventually comes out. This are the unedited version of the images. We break rules for birthday’s right?
Like I mentioned earlier, I look forward to my birthdays. I have also created a tradition of doing something very important and significant for me aside dressing up which was one of the memories I had as a child. NO, not parties. YES, I do buy myself a gift but most importantly I do something money can’t buy for me.
If you check the archive of the Moj in touch blog, you will notice that the blog is archived from March 2014. The Significant thing I did for me for my birthday in 2014 was that I created this blog. That was my birthday gift to me for that year.
Can I be honest? Moj in touch is one of the best birthday gifts I have ever created / received. I have always wanted a platform where I could share, create, express my self, help and influence women from all around the world. So on my birthday that year, I launched Moj in touch. So as I celebrate my birthday, I celebrate the blog’s birthday. It is double the fun and I LOVE IT. It brings a sense of fulfilment, one I would love to keep forever. May God help me, amen.
My take in life is this; do something significant for your self on your birthdays, one money can’t buy. It is one of the best ways to make memories last forever if you truly cherish the thing. It could be anything….read a book, propose to your lover on the day, travel, buy something you’ve always wanted etc. Do it for you. You can then look back and say something like; I started my first business when I turned or we got engaged when I turned….(insert an age here and imagine it).
This year, I have a big bag full of clothes, most of which are new, some I got from brand collaborations and some I have only worn once. I will be bringing them to my local St Vincent the Paul + a certain amount of money for the Charity. I will also be buying a table to support the Break Forth Charity dinner to support women and girls in the developing world. Those are the 2 significant things for my birthday this year. I am thankful for provision.
My dress / look today is a definition of my joy, excitement, celebration, romance and sexuality.
The look is sexy yet classy. Romantic yet demure.
It is indeed a look I love and one that celebrates me in my style and the woman I am becoming.
My husband loves this dress!
As soon as I “prepared it for photo shoot, he nodded YES.
FASHION TIP TODAY ::: RED
Red is a colour of energy; when you wear red, you will feel confident and in control.
Red is also associated with the meaning of love, passion, desire, heat, sensitivity, sexuality, romance, joy, strength, will power, courage, determination, vibrance and radiance to mention a few.
Wearing red brings excitement into your day. It is the colour of stimulation, showing a sense of exhilaration.
When your energy level is down during the week, wear read, it is an energy buster.
Red is indeed a fun, bold and happy colour and what better way to celebrate than to be the lady in red for my birthday?
What are the memories you have for your birthdays? Like me, do you do something significant for you or are you one of the ones who dread getting old? Would love to hear from you in the comments below please.
