What Does Easter Mean To You? See what a few of my favourite Style Bloggers, MUAs and Fashion Designers had to say.


Happy Easter beautiful people! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! Hope everyone’s having a good easter holiday. It is my prayer that this easter will grant you and yours restoration, hope, joy and unceasing favour. And that every stone of pain, sickness, discouragement, fear, failure, rejection, financial drought, be rolled away in Jesus name. Amen!!
So I decided to ask a few of my favourite makeup artists, fashion designers, and style bloggers to share with me their thoughts on this significant event... and also how they plan to celebrate it. Here's saying a big Thank You to these beautiful ladies for finding time to reply to my email. :) I really enjoyed reading their fascinating viewpoints and I know y'all will too.

What does Easter mean to you?
Easter serves as a reminder to me, that the life that I live is not mine. It reminds me that I've been bought with a price and what that price was. I'm also reminded not to take all that I am or have for granted.
How are you spending it?
I'm currently in London, my Easter plans begin with Good Friday would be going for watch night service at Jesus House, Brent Cross and Easter Sunday service also. Would be indoors for the rest of Sunday, although I might (will) sneak into Westfield in Stratford to rake in a few beauty and fashion deals..

What does Easter mean to you?
For me Easter is a celebration of the greatest act of kindness known to man where God gave his only son to die on the cross for us. This singular act is the reason why man's relationship with God was repaired after the fall of Adam. We can now call God our father and have direct access to him through Jesus Christ to make all our requests known- forgiveness of our sins, healing, protection,  any and everything! 
How are you spending it?
I will be spending my Easter with family eating, drinking and making merry. I also hope to attend the theater play SARO, I've heard so much about it!

What does Easter mean to you?
Growing up, christmas was the happiest time of the church's liturgical year for me, what was not to love? Christ was born, every one was home, there was food, I could go on and on! but that changed after I discovered Easter. Easter wasn't new, the appreciation was what I had lacked. As I grew older, I began to gradually understand some of the things that my young mind had failed to grasp. You see to understand the joy that came with Easter, to feel it, I had to do the journey. I had to understand who he was, why exactly he came, the pain he had to endure and his love that does not change, irrespective of how stupid I am. The lenten season is always a good reminder of all that he has done but there are the graces that come even before lent, the blessings you are not even sure you deserve and the numerous testimonies that come before. I realized with time that christmas was usually a good time for most people to reflect on all that he had done and also celebrate his birth but the period before Easter reminds us why. Why he came, why he did all that he did. 

So for me it is a period of joy, it reminds me that he chose to suffer not because he couldn't avoid it but because he felt I deserved it. It reminds me of who he is, death had no power over him. It reminds me of whom I serve.

How are you spending it?
I'm currently battling an assignment so I'll be definitely be in doors, LOL. But the joy will be there, it always is. It feels good waking up in the morning knowing that your God is boss. He is risen from the dead and nothing can beat that.

What does Easter mean to you?
Easter reminds me of a few things as a Christian. It's a reflection of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary for me and for all mankind. So, because of the significant death of Jesus Christ, every repentant heart has been set free from sin. And finally because Jesus Christ rose from the dead, the words of the Lord has been fulfilled and on Easter Day i celebrate and rejoice with thanksgiving to God for the salvation he granted to mankind.
How are you spending it?
My husband checked us into a resort hotel for the weekend. So we will be attending good Friday and Easter mass. Then celebrating together dining, relaxing and enjoying some quality alone time together all through the holidays.



Thanks Chichi, this was nice it got me really thinking.

What does Easter mean to you?
For me Easter is about Love, God's unconditional and everlasting love. He sent his son Jesus Christ to the world, to die for my sins, he came so that I may have life. Easter is truly deep.
 How are you spending it?
On Easter day I would go to Church to celebrate the Resurrection, and then I'll work , and finally would have lunch with my family.

What does Easter mean to you?
Easter to me is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It reminds me that I am alive and well today because of that single and selfless sacrifice. 
How are you spending it?
I like spending Easter with my family. On good Friday my husband and I went to the fish market to buy fish and prawns, we visited the inlaws and we had Thai noodles with prawns stir fry for lunch. I would spend the rest of the break with my immediate family eating good food.

Hmmmmm, Easter always feels like a new beginning, a fresh start, a brand new chapter, a clean slate, white as snow, pure and spotless. ..wow!!! I could go on and on the main reason I always feel this way is because of the trying days before the Easter celebration. I use the word trying only if you have made up your mind to deprive yourself of something you "think" you can't do without as a form of sacrifice during the lenting period. Human nature would make you crave something you can't have hence the temptation but that awesome feeling of triumph rushes through you when you realise you pulled through, at least you're happy with yourself and would like to think that God is also applauding you :).

Easter is also a period of clarity for me, I begin to revaluate and understand what matters the most usually a time to set my priorities straight and allow myself to be led by the will of God. Less talking and more listening, waiting on the that tiny, little voice we often times ignore.....Pheeewwww I choose to stop here lol.....in a nutshell Easter is total restoration and a constant reminder that I serve a Living God.

How are you spending it?
Well, this is the first Easter I get to spend alone (but I'm not sad and I am not cooking hehe) as my job won't let me be great lol so... First of all Church is numero uno on my list. Then its time to throw caution to the wind and as a foodie that I have most recently become eat like there's a vision of an
upcoming famine (jokes). I honestly don't plan to visit an orphanage but my plan is to actually make a random stranger really really happy today. That being said( or written) its a happy time lets all celebrate and be happy, love more and remain thankful that an amazing man came down to earth just to wash our sins away so we can celebrate today for as long as we live. 

Happy Easter, Christ is risen!!!

The meaning of Easter to me is Jesus Christ's victory over death. Honoring and recognizing Jesus christ's resurrection from the death & his glorious promise of eternal life for all who believe in him.
How are you spending it?
This Easter holiday, I will be spending it with friends and family. Saturday will be for picnic with friends and their kids,I will be taking my kids along. Sunday i will be doing lunch, with my husband and kids after church service and Monday will be a chilled day,probably lazy around the house or go see a movie at the cinema.

What does Easter mean to you?
Easter to me is a time of celebration of the risen Lord. Personally, It's the greatest feast of the church. As a catholic, after going through deep sober reflection during the Lenten season which entailed self denial, alms giving, repentance etc.  It's a time to celebrate with friends family and the less privilege while striving to live a better life.
How are you spending it?
During the Easter break, we will be embarking on renovations at the studio. This will include painting, decorating, signage change etc. We want our customers to see a new studio on Tuesday 😊.



  It's always pleasant to see what the death and resurrection of Jesus means to Christians.

  By the way, how gorgeous are they? Everything on fleek! :D

Enjoy the rest of your easter break mi loves.
