KSI LIFE | A MOMENT OF PEACE


The last time I was really happy was when I was in LA. :-) It was soooo peaceful and relaxing. The weather really does lift up ones mood. Oh LA I can't wait till we have our "Moment Of Peace" again...not long now.

KSI LIFE | CAN'T WAIT...









I can't wait to enjoy views and capture moments like this when I'm in LA. Can we just appreciate the beauty in this photo. Looks like a painting, it reminds me of David Hockey's infamous painting "The Big Splash".

KSI STYLE | UNIFORM


Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week unlike me who was sick for most of it. Booooo!:-( It's another Bank Holiday Weekend over here in London I hope the weather's nice. Tomorrow is BeautyCon London, are any of you going? I can't wait to make a full recovery and be back to my usual routine. Sometimes I feel like I put so much pressure on myself but I just see it as determination now. I know "I AM Designed To Do Great Things". 

As the weather warms up to the Summer Season I find myself reaching for my uniform...my denim shirt, basic top and leggings. I just love to be comfortable. I've actually been working on a denim shirt design that I would possibly sell on ShopKsi. I just love the versitality of a shirt in general and being able to dress it up or down. I've really been thinking about what direction I want to take my online store and the kind of products I want to sell and since I have so many designs I thought why not use my own. 

If you didn't know by now I love to design whether it be portrait drawing, animating, graphic design, interior, fashion...EVERYTHING etc. I will try and put some portrait drawings in the GALLERY soon. Anyhoodle here are some denim shirts that I absolutely love...Btw I very much prefer the mens fit over the womens fit as the mens leaves more room for customization. I don't like my shirts too fitted, I like that Micheal Jackson jacket blowing in the wind Smooth Criminal swag. Lol 


KSI LIFE | UNCERTAIN



Is it possible to just wake up one day and realise you don't love someone anymore? Is that real? What is that? Wouldn't that mean you never really loved them in the first place? Was it just a deep lust? Maybe it was all in the mind? Is it really possible to just stop loving someone just like that? I wanna know...seriously? 
Are the feelings of an uncertain love triggered or have they always been there as a faint whisper of doubt buried at the very core you thought was love. Are we mirroring our uncertainty or did we create this illusion of what we thought was love based on what society says is love. Once upon a time...there was no beginning, there was just the end...UNCERTAIN.

KSI LIFE | RAINY DAYS



I have no idea what happened to the wonderful weather we've been having. It's just been raining, raining and raining. I've been poorly since the weekend. On Monday morning I woke up with a very sore throat. I'm still trying to figure out how I got this sick? Could've been the change in weather? I hate being sick! :-( I've been inhaling ginger, lemon and honey tea like a fish. Hope you're all having a fantastic week so far. I was meant to launch my nail page last week but its taken a backseat again due to some minor hiccups. I'm also looking for a good printing company to get my business cards done. I want them to be printed on high quality glossy credit card like plastic. If you know any good companies...please let me know.

LET'S TALK | TOMORROWS TODAY

I'm  scared, anxious, excited, gut-wrenchingly TERRIFIED! I keep being told this is normal?! I mean...it's normal to be anxious in any situation where you're taking a risk. But if it's to the point where it's making you ill, I would think one would have to revaluate the whole idea. It's not even an idea anymore  because everything has been set in motion to go go GO! "Feel the fear and do it anyway" quote comes to mind. I don't know what that means because I don't trust my gut. How do I know I'm making the right decision? I don't want to wake up one day full of regrets but at the same time I don't want to be foolish. I've asked for so many signs and recieved the same answer everytime. I always pray my mind is not playing tricks on me. I keep asking myself..."AM I brave or stupid? Is this what you really want? Are you sure?" One day will we read this and laugh at how young and anxious I was..?
Will this be something we share at a celebration and laugh about for years to come? Only God knows...
I have been worrying about something I have no control over! The amount of time I spend worrying about tomorrow instead of living in today. Smh

Is it all really worth it? God wouldn't have brought me this far to leave me now. I will continue to trust and pray that this is the right decision. The way everything just fell into place just like that, seems almost too good to be true! But then again, I was promised these blessings. It's time to "Let Go and Let God".

SKINCARE & BEAUTY | SMALL SKINCARE HAUL


Yesterday I picked up a few bits and pieces for my skin that I've been wanting and needing, I also stocked up on some favourites. I decided to add African Black Soap back into my regimen again. Every Spring/Summer my skin goes crazy, it probably has something to do with my hayfever. Last summer I had a horrible rash (hayfever related) on my face that I felt like lasted forever. In the warmer seasons I gear towards lotions as oils and body butters make me sweat more. I do like to use oils before bed though.


Picked up the Gorious Mud Facial Exfoliator too, I thought I'd try it since I love the clay mask so much. I also found my Vanilla Body Spray that I used to love way back when. I remember enquiring about it at Boots and being told it was discontinued when actually it was just repackaged. Lol

Can't wait to try both of these masks, the Tea Tree is a peel off and the Vitamin E a facial. As I've mentioned in previous posts my skin loves Tea Tree products. Stay tuned as I'll have a review to follow.

KSI J'ADORE


I keep seeing these gorgeous flowers in people's gardens, I don't know what they're called but they have a very rich vibrant purple colour. I wish I had one in my garden. :-( If anyone knows the name please let me know. I hope you all had a great week and are ready for the weekend. I wanted to take my neice and nephew to the zoo but everyone can't make it so we might go next weekend instead. I stuck with my clean eating this week which I'm really happy about. Tomorrow's a CHEAT DAY. :-) Yesterday I made bean porridge, it was so delicious, I'll try and share it in my next post. What have you all been up to? Any plans for the weekend?

FAMILY PORTRAITS



My gorgeous neice and nephew...oh how I love them dearly. :-)

KSI LIFE | DREAMING OF LA












































Dreaming of LA LA Land all the time, can't wait to be in the sun again....ah the breeze. Sigh. See you soon! :-) Happy Hump Day! How's your week going thus far? I've been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having down here in London Town. I hope I don't jinx it now. Lol

BRIGHTON DAY TRIP






Happy Sunday all! :-) Hope you all had a lovely weekend...I know I did. :-) The famalam and I took a little road trip down to Brighton. The weather was beautiful which was a bonus. It was good to get out of London even if it was for just for a day. I love being at the seaside, it's so relaxing, the air is fresh it's just a much calmer vibe. I plan to visit the seaside a bit more this summer. Unfortunately I couldn't take much pictures as my fone my battery died and I didn't bother lugging my camera around. :-( By the way if you're heading down there check out a resturaunt called Bankers the fish and chips there is 10/10. Check out more pictures in the GALLERY. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.

Xx

BREAKFAST TODAY







I've been trying to make healthier choices when it comes to food, so to take into account what I eat I thought I'd share bits and pieces on here. :-) I do plan to start up my Daily Food Diary again but it's in the process of getting a makeover. Documenting what I eat has always helps me stay on track...Anyhoodle this morning I whipped up some Spinach Scrambled Eggs, Sliced Plum Tomatoes and Avocado. Yum!

KSI FOOD | MACKEREL FISH SALAD



I made this delicious Mackerel Salad yesterday and I wanted to share it with you all. It was quick to throw together and yummy too. :-) I washed it down with Iced Green Tea (my favourite). I've been having problems releasing my bowels and I knew this would help. I feel so much better, I hate taking any kind of medication for help with bowel movements the "release" never feels organic. Lol I know my anxiety has something to do with it too. I've noticed that when I'm extremely anxious or under alot of stress my metabolism comes to a hult! I become really bloated and get really bad headaches.
Another thing I've noticed is my body doesn't like bread, it clogs me right up. :-(
Green Tea has always been my best friend...it never let's me down in aiding my digestion. I'm trying to be really careful about what I put in my body these days, I've turned into a really cautious eater.


I've been feeling so anxious lately, I seem to be going down the road of bottling everything up again which isn't good for my health. I feel comfortable talking about it on here because...I dunno? I just do! Lol I seem to be second guessing everything.
In my last post I told you all I'm really excited?! Well...I am, it's just that excitement stirs up alot of anxiety. I know all will be well in Jesus name! I just want to make sure I don't regret anything and I'm making the right decision. I'm going through a "If I don't do this NOW..." phase like the world is ending  or I'm running out of time. Silly right? I just need to focus on NOW and not worry about the future or relive the past. Having faith and TRUSTING in GOD is all I need to do. I feel so much better talking about this out loud. I hope you're all enjoying your week so far.
Happy Hump Day! Is it me? Or did this week go quick? Go away raaaiiiiiinnnnn!!

"For I do not have a spirit of FEAR, but of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND mind."


KSI LIFE | UPDATES


I feel like I haven't blogged for ages now that we're in May! The months are flying by. *omg face* I try not to abandon my blog when so many things are happening but that always seems to be the case. #MyBad :-/ I'm really gonna try and keep it going as I regret not posting things when I look back. If you don't know by now...I love to document bits and pieces of any and everything. So many great things are happening right now and I will share more details as it gets closer to the time but, just know that I'm really excited. Seriously? Can you believe it's May already? Did any of you make New Years resolutions? How's that going? I'm soooo excited!!! Arrrrrrrggggggghhhhh!!! This week has been hectic and I'm just tryna adjust to the swing of things. Did any of you watch the  Mayweather and Pacquiao fight???
I thought Mayweather would win...he wasn't about to start losing now. LOL History was made?! What did you think about the fight? Was the scoring fair? Talking of history a big congratulations to Prince William and Kate who are now the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl. :-)
