Hi all, hope you’re well as having a great bank holiday weekend! Mine has been awesome. You should follow me on snapchat (@fumzfumz) to see what I get up to.

As of late, I’ve had the idea of gratitude lingering on my mind. In this day and age where it’s easy to glorify every feeling of discontent, thanks to social media, I feel it really has taken away from the art of living – intentionally.

Bad weather, time schedules, the mundane things of life so easily distract us and take away attention from the many blessings that we are daily beneficiaries of. Being grateful provides a different perspective to life. Whist things might not be going as hoped for, a heart of gratitude keeps one hopeful and grounded in a more positive light. Also, knowing that God’s plan for us are of good and not evil encourages one to rest in His saving grace, acknowledging that His timing is best.

I’d like to encourage you to maintain a lifestyle of gratitude. It’ll make a ton of difference – not just going through the motions of life, but living it intentionally, and steadfastly through storms and challenges.

Onto today’s look, the 90s are back in town! Lol. If you’ve been with me from the start, you might remember this dress on a birthday post. Haven’t worn it since that birthday actually. Thought of ways to rejuvenate it, and here’s what I came up with. Hope you like it.

Enjoy the rest of the bank holiday, and have a great week all!

Be right back,
Funmi xx
