Thanksgiving Friday & Reader Spotlight

Our lives are full of ups and downs and we always seem to dwell on the negative or bad things and the good incidents or the positive things seem to take a back seat.

This is the reason I started the Thanksgiving Friday series. Why not take the time and put the spotlight on the good things that happened during the week and be thankful for all the positive vibes and the good energy. Let us take the time and be thankful for the situations or the people who brought a smile on our face.

Thankful that I was able to visit Westminster Cathedral on my Birthday

Some of you will know that I celebrated my birthday on Monday (yes, i am getting old). I am thankful that I am still alive and was able to spend the day with my loved ones. I also got the chance to go to Westminster Cathedral and take part in the Mass celebration which is very important to me.

There are so many people who are not so fortunate or who are lonely and have nobody to celebrate their birthday with. I am grateful that I got to witness the day.

Thankful that I was able to walk in this shoes

You all know that I attended London Fashion Weekend by now. I was debating whether to wear these boots. 

I lasted 8 hours in this heels. When I first wore them, I walked for 15 minutes and my feet started hurting. I took a risk and decided to wear them and to my surprise they were comfortable to walk. Thank God that the shoes did not cut my day short like last time.

Thankful that I finally got a Laptop

I got a Laptop. Finally. It was about time. My old one is resting in peace and I broke my brother's laptop. 

Blogging was getting difficult and I had to go to internet cafe to write my posts and upload the pics. I am so thankful that I have a new laptop and nobody is allowed to touch the Apple, not even my brother whose laptop I broke (being ruthless, I know :D)

Thank you for your suggestions. Shayne, please thank your boyfriend for researching and helping me with this. 

Did anything good happen to you during this week that you would like to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving Friday?

Reader Spotlight

It's the 28th today which means end of February and I did not want to compromise on the Thanksgiving Friday post, decided to combine them both. 

Time to shift the spotlight on my readers (You can read my blog updates to find out what I'm talking about)

Naaj sweetheart, I am so sorry you are dealing with this. It breaks my heart but i know you are strong.

I once heard a lady suffering from sickle cell disease say, "The doctors only treat the symptoms of my disease and not the cure. So i have taken it upon myself to research on it by getting to know my body and figuring out what is good for me to stay healthy. I haven't felt any better since then. I feel great." You can't come this far to give up now. Get up every morning, step outside and breathe. Do the things you love doing the most. The things that make you happy and put a smile on your pretty face. When you are feeling down, go for walks or drives to ares that cheer you up. Rent movies you love (I will recommend "Love Actually").
Go to a coffee shop and have a sit while you people watch. Find a way to love life again. Take it one day at a time my dear and remember it is up to you to stay healthy. It is the simple things in life....Do it with someone if you can. Some people pray for what we take for granted.
You will be okay Naaj, I promise. You have life and that means thee is definitely hope. Please stay in touch. You know how to find me :).

I would like to say a big Thank You to Busola for the amazing advice. If you are going through a tough time, you might want to give this a try. It helped me big time.


  1. Great post love your laptop hope the weather gets better.the boits ate awesome. Had a busy week but an elderly started working getting office mail and he crack me up every day that makes my day.

    1. Aww bless, at least there is someone to cheer you up xx

  2. My week, hmm...where did it go? Your week was obviously a good one. A new Mac Apple Laptop? Awesome!! There is nothing as good as using the internet from the comfort of your home. Now how did i miss your birthday? Happy birthday in arrears. Sorry about that Naaj. Hope you got all you wanted.

    Wishing you a great weekend and a new week ahead.

    1. It is so much better working from the comfort of your home.

      Thank you so much Busola and please don't be sorry. I definitely had a good week, intact it is going better than i thought. Thank you xx

  3. Congrats, dear Naaj, for your wonderful new laptop and that you were able to walk in those stylish shoes about 8 hours! I´m sure your new laptop will make you really happy, I know about what I´ m talking because last year I got also a new laptop :)

    This week I´m really thankful for the long discussion I had today with my husband, which was very important for both of us, our lifes and our partnership. I´m thankful that I have a partner who is able to talk and also reflecting himself and that I have the knowledge about the human psychology due to my degree, because this is often so helpful in human contexts and relationships.

    Wish you a happy rest of the weekend, how wonderful that your birthday was so great, you deserve this really <3

    Kisses from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

    1. Thank you Rena. I was shocked that I lasted 8 hours in those heels but I am glad that they were comfy.

      So happy t hear that you were able to spend time with your hobbs, you both deserve it. Definitely helps when you have a Psycology degree because it makes it easier to understand the body language and emotions better. Happy for you xx
