It's My 24th Birthday

                        Dress - Urban Outfitters // Cut out boots - Asos 

I'm a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunty to the most beautiful nieces and nephews, I'm a friend, a best friend, a girl friend all these things make me who I am. My skin is kissed by the sun, so brown I'm sweet as chocolate, my hips now sway side to side, my back curves a little more and my posture resembles that of a lady. I'm an African woman, a God fearing woman, always praying, forever giving my love, constantly grateful, I am a libra, I am a singer, an artist, an actress, a (terrible) dancer, I'm a dreamer, I will be a wife, a mother and so much more. My history is rich and strong, Chona is in my blood, my Grandfather was vice president and Prime Mister, my Grandmother hardworking and unbreakable, My Great Grandfather fought lions, my Mother is loving and patient. Bravery is in my blood, what do I do with a name like that? I celebrate it and honour it I make all those that came before me Proud. I've been so blessed to see another year and I'm grateful to God for giving me so much love and happiness than I could have ever imagined. It's one year since I started this blog and I'm so happy I've stayed committed, this is my own little place of joy where I can share my thoughts, life and inspiration with you. Tho I've experienced may ups and downs 24 never felt so good and I'm excited to see where this next chapter will take me! I'm growing into someone I'm proud to be I love hard, I feel emotions deeper, I grow stronger, I'm more compassionate and my smile is a little brighter. I want to help people and enrich their lives in some way, we are all flawed beautiful people. Cheers thanks for sticking round, you're amazing! Happy Birthday to me :)

P.s Thanks to Monica ( my beautiful cousin) for surprising me with tickets to the Lion King musical last night, a dream come true for me. You truly are the best thing to ever happen to me! Here's to more fun and joy to share <3

P.p.s I think I felt my first wrinkle today :/ haha just kidding
