#YASM2014LAX Ignite and Recharge

About two weeks ago (just before I traveled to Los Angeles) I made a post about the RCCGNA YASM convention and gave an introduction to what it is. If you missed it, you can just read it here.
So now the convention is over and I am here to tell you ALL about it. First, let me just say this is my favorite year so far and that is a good thing because then you know it can only get better.
 This was our home for 3 days (4 and a half days for me).The convention was held at Radisson Hotel at LAX.
The program started on Thursday with an outreach, which I missed because I had to be at the choir practice that afternoon.
The official opening service was held on Thursday evening. The program for the evening included the spiritual service and the worship concert. This year we were privileged to listen to Pastor Peter Balogun and Pastor James Fadele. Both pastors took their bible text from the book of Acts of the apostles chapter 2 verses 1 through 4. They both ministered on the theme "Ignite and Recharge". Both messages combined delivered powerful insight and awakening as to what is required of us as young adults for us to stay ignited and recharged.
Some key points from both messages are:
- We are to move from the level of just possessing information to the level of manifesting and exhibiting the power in the information we possess. To buttress this point, Pastor Peter referred to 2 kings 4: 18-35. 
- Pastor Fadele focused on one word: Passion. He said "Passion creates fire, it increases willpower, produces energy and generates a force to break through" and "Fire is needed for WAR - Witnessing, Arresting the opposition, and Resisting the devil."
For the worship concert, we were blessed by the anointed minister Cobham Asuquo. It was a very unique experience and if you follow me on instagram, you would have already seen the 16 second clip I posted.
So, the evening and the morning were the first day…(excuse me while i quote the words of the bible from the creation story i Genesis 1 - KJV)

Day 2
We started off with the singles prayer at 6 am and as expected, my lazy self got there late but thank God I didn't miss the whole session. We had zumba after the prayers.
Friday is the main variety day - everything happens on Friday: from questions and answers with the Chairman to relationship talk, breakout sessions according to gender and whether married or single, sports and eventually the highlight of the day for most people, the gala night. I am currently working on a post that will feature the gala night with as much details as possible, watch out for the post and the picture.

Day 3
The grand finale happens on this day. The spiritual sealing of all the blessings received the past two days and also the physical locking in on friendships and relationships built during the convention happens on this day. People get a final opportunity to network and take those phone numbers because they MIGHT not meet for another year.
Now i deliberately put the "MIGHT" in uppercase because things are changing in YASM and so we just might be meeting more than once a year… I know, exciting! So keep your ears and eyes open for more information on that. 
 YASM 2015 IS COMING and guess where we are going to… keep reading :)

There is so much more to share about this event than what i have written but i will let the pictures, videos and audio recordings show you the rest. You can visit RCCGNA-YASM TV on Facebook or RCCGNA YASM website. So for YASM 2015, we are going to D.C!!! Washington DC baby, road trip for me.
Now, i cannot end this post without giving a shout-out to the YASM choir! Follow them on instagram @YASCHOIR

Mixed prints for dinner

Dinner time = happy time. The saying that "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" can also apply to ladies #I'mjustsayin lol
Anyways, I was in a hurry and would not have had enough time for pictures but thanks to the person behind the camera for just snapping away without waiting for me to step out and pose, I was able to get these lovely shots.
The early evening has the best lighting for vibrant colored pictures; the sun is not shinning too brightly but has just enough light to cast a beautiful glow on the skin :).

Now to my outfit - This was a match made by chance. I have had the top for so long but only wore it once. I just came upon it while reorganizing my closet recently. It so happened that I dropped the top right beside the skirt and that was how they met.

Crop top - let's just say Osy closet
Skirt - Charlotte Russe
Denim jacket - Forever 21
Shoes - Target
Clutch - gift
Thanks again for visiting and like always, please leave a comment and share :)

Maximizing your closet : LA chronicles 1

One of my favorite shots from my beach trip in LA. The sky and the water had the prettiest color ever.
Hello dearies, on today's post, I will be sharing one of my tips for maximizing space and clothing pieces when traveling. I recently went on a trip to Los Angeles for a convention and a much needed mini vacation- this was just last week.
I had so much planned for my free time. I had so many places to visit too. I am glad I was able to do most of the things on my list and I will be sharing the experience on the blog in the following weeks so please keep visiting. 
Now to show you my pictures...
Just some poses on the side
Sincerely, this outfit was not a part of the plan while I was packing
Practicing my runway moves lol
Around and about on the streets of LA, late night Hollywood crawl
The day before my beach trip, I wore the skirt with a white top to achieve the simple black and white style that never fails. 
This was the day after - I wore the romper by itself at the pool side. 
Thanks for reading and please leave a comment and share, love Osy

Pre RCCGNA YASM convention 2014 special edition

Hi guys, this post is a special edition featuring outfit ideas for a very special upcoming event. The event is the annual Redeemed Christian Church of God North America Young Adults and Singles Ministry convention.
Every year for the past 5 years(this is the 6th year), young adults from all over North America have gathered together in a city to fellowship as one body and also to meet and interact with others.
The two main highlights of the program are the Thursday night worship service and the Friday night black tie ball.
This year, the theme of the convention is "Ignite and Recharge" and our creative team have decided that the dress code for the formal ball be Colorblock!
So without further stories, here are some outfit ideas I have putting together for the ladies.
Evening dresses styling options. 

This set is for people who are more into very simple dresses. A simple black and white dress can easily be

If you are into the currently trending midi skirts, you might be interested in this set.

For the love of maxi. 
There is so much we can do with this color block theme so let's just have fun with it and rock it the best way we can.
Looking forward to see how everyone styles their outfits and I will be out there with my camera taking pics of some of my favorites. After the convention, I will be featuring some of the pictures so if you see this face, feel free to say hello and ask for a shot :)

And as always please leave a comment and share, thanks.
