Weekend Blues | Hope, A New Project & #BarbaraxAfroriri Instagram Contest

Hi guys,
I've recently been under a lot of pressure and going through a lot. If you follow me on Instagram you must have felt it too. But the message of hope especially from Jer. 29:11 + God sending a physical person to help renew my hope has greatly strengthened me. So now, I can smile again, even brighter than before. 
It doesn't mean that the storms are over or all my prayers have been answered or all is well, it just means that the Holy Spirit has strengthened me and given me the Grace to go on.

Along with the Holy Spirit restoring my hope, I have a new project I am very excited about. It actually involves my alter ego (Barbara, the fashion blogger) more, but I am also infused in it so it's a collaboration between my 2 personalities. Normally, she wouldn't mind being the model at a fashion shoot but I do so I was very nervous.

I have a fab photographer you all will get to meet soon but she helped with all the poses, made me smile and by the end of the shoot I was very relaxed and looking forward to the next one. I'll tell you all about the project soon enough. It's a big one so I'm quite excited about it too. In the meantime, here are some behind-the-scene pictures from the shoot.
What do you guys think?

In other news, do you all remember Afroriri? 2 of my lovely fans will get to win a goodie bag  (1 Honey Moisturising Shampoo, 1 Luxe Detangling Conditioner and 1 Luxe Hair Butter) each from Afroriri.

All the best guys and what do you think about my new project?
