23.

Hey Lovelies So I’m even embarrassed to apologise because I’ve already apologised too many times this year. But hey, I’m back again. And I’m a year older! I celebrated my birthday last week, on the 13th of June and I must say this year I  thoroughly enjoyed my birthday. I haven’t felt this way in…

Rainy Day Chronicles

Heyy Heyy So the plan was for a sunset shoot amongst the trees and the grass you know! African themed etc. You get the picture right? yeah! But we got just the opposite! Cloud cover and then rain just as we got there. I was freezing cold, shivering in fact and the rain did not…

Beauty Faves #1

Hey Lovelies I am here to share some of the beauty products that I have been loving over the last couple of months. I don’t use a lot of products so when I tell you these are faves, they really are faves because I haven’t switched them up! Let’s get into it! Avon Gentle Moisture…

Social Anxiety and Me

“Face your fears and they’ll go away” Well that’s easier said than done. Hey Lovelies So what is social anxiety?

It is the fear of being judged…

DIY Shea Butter Mix

Hey Lovelies This week I’m back with another DIY. This is a super simplified version of the Shea Butter Mix with only two ingredients. I had to make it because my hair was struggling and I couldn’t wait to collect all the ingredients.  My hair needed moisture! It was an SOS situation so I made…

Colour Confidence

Heyy Lovelies So about a week ago, one of my dearest tweeps, Grace, suggested that I should post pictures for the #fullliptwitter tag because I have full lips. Interesting that she suggested that, not knowing that for the longest time I struggled with these full lips. I have always shied away from colour. They were…

DIY Bath Crème

Hey hey It’s been long since I actually made something for myself. I had missed taking care of me! Anyway this time I’m here with a DIY Bath Creme which I have been meaning to make for months now. I kept procrastinating but recently I ran out of shower gel and I ended up using…

Where have I been?

Hey Lovelies So you all deserve an update and explanation of my whereabouts over the last 3 months or so. I don’t even know where to start. So much has happened in a short space of time! Firstly I can tell you that ADULTING IS HARD! I’m only 3 months in and I’m just not…

As I began to love myself.

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person,…

One Year Later

Hello Hello On this day, exactly a year ago, I grabbed my laptop, logged in to my WordPress account and I posted my first post. I had no idea what I was going to blog about. I had not thought it through but what I did know was that I wanted to share my story…

As I reflect…

Hey Lovelies So we are almost at the end of 2016 and this is clearly the time where we look back at the last year and reflect. I know I’m not alone. So how did my 2016 go? I really can say that 2016 has by far been one of the most difficult years of…

DIY Makeup Remover & Wipes
