Hello, welcome to Beautiful Me Ch√Ęteau. Today is my first day here, so if you are reading this today then we are both new, only I’m the hostess (: Since I’m the first in, I’m the welcome party, so welcome to my home. The idea to start this blog was conceived earlier today. I couldn’t sleep, like all the other thoughts whirling in my head, the start-a-new-blog sneaked in too. So, here we are. I am Olufunke. I am an amputee, a mother (the part I love most about me) a writer, a beauty consultant and a tutor. This blog is dedicated to everyone fighting a battle no one knows about, dealing with life challenges, and still manage to keep it together or struggling to rise above them all. The friends and families standing by them. You are thought of and you are loved. Don’t ever stop fighting.
