OUR WEEK IN BLACK AND WHITE: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh

January 8, 2017

This week has been super busy, for me especially. I had to shoot an AD Campaign on Monday sharing about forming habits. It was quite fun as I let my curly hair out and shared how I intend to carry on with healthy habits I’ve formed in 2017 which includes walking everyday. The idea is that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. So if you set a goal and do do something that gets you closer to it everyday for 21 days straight, it’ll become a habit. I can definitely vouch for this as I’ve done it quite a few times when trying to achieve certain goals.

This week also saw me return back to my 9 to 5 job as a financial accountant. Craig on the other hand gets to relax as he doesn’t return back to work until mid January but he’s been a good sport assisting with creating content for the blog. We discovered a new coffee shop very close to our Church, I can’t recall the name off the top of my head but the outdoor sitting was great for taking pictures so we snuck in one.

I met up with Lily (one of my blogger friends) after work on Tuesday and we had a lovely chat over some delicious steak and salad at BanyanSamio was meant to join us but couldn’t make it at the last minute. I managed to catch up with her over the phone which was great. It’s always nice connecting with fellow bloggers as you feed off each others energy which kicks in a lot of motivation.

I finally found the perfect ripped jeans from Levi’s® called the 721 skinny high rise jeans on sale and shot a youtube video sharing all about it. A blog post showing off these bad boys will follow on Tuesday.

Today was very lovely as Craig volunteered to be one of the three wise men for the Cathedral. He was dressed as one of the kings and took his role quite seriously as he demanded I take photographs of him with the bishop of Manchester and other prominent members of the Church, lol. It was beautiful to watch him. This is the second time he has volunteered for this. Each of the three wise men carried gifts of goldfrankincense and myrrh as depicted in the Bible. It is the story of the birth of Christ, one very reminiscent of Christmas. As all three wise men walked down the streets of Manchester towards the Cathedral with the choir behind them singing hymns, it was clear to see why Craig wanted to be a part of it. It was wonderful to watch and I’m pleased that our weekend ended on such a lovely note.

Thanks for reading. Hope you all have a great week.
