Homeschooling my toddler

Now I just want to put it out there that I really dislike the word ‘homeschooling’ and it sounds a lot more complicated than what it actually is. I decided to start teaching my daughter things at home when I realised that she was understanding concepts and learning. I mean children are constantly learning but to retain the information is another ball game. I started not too long ago actually, just before she turned 3. Children grow up super quick. Your newborn baby becomes a toddler in no time! I always smile at my daughter…

My simple and easy night time skincare routine

As you may or may not have gathered from me is that complicated, long winded skincare routines are not for me. I just don’t got the time to be doing 5 skincare steps every.single.night! I know some people love it but not me. I try it, then I abandon it by day 3! It just isn’t my thing. I stumbled on this routine, a few weeks ago and I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin. I typically exfoliate every morning, so I don’t do it at night. My dead skin builds up on…

Saying Goodbye to Mummy Guilt | 5 Ways to beat it

One thing I love about women is when we get together and are honest with each other and no competition, there is so much learning and enlightening that happens. I personally cannot be around people that I can’t share my highs and also the lows of things that happen. I find it very superficial. Women that constantly try and make everything seem perfect are not my cup of tea. I don’t know maybe it’s because I like to share my thoughts and feelings. I’m a sharer. Hence why this blog does me so well. It’s…

High street stores and online stores were doing Black Friday deals on makeup and beauty products as well. Not bad!

Makeup and Beauty tips for medium to dark skin tones | Lessons that I have recently learnt

I am constantly learning new ways or methods to apply my makeup. I do not believe makeup application is an exact science. I have watched countless of Insta videos where at first I am horrified at a dark skin girl using concealer that is waayyyyyyyyyyyy too light, but then she blends it out and does her thing, and it comes out looking fine. Im not saying that it tempts me to go for a concealer that is 5 shades lighter, but it just made me realise that I can be quick to judge sometimes, you…

Private or State Education | Pros and Cons

Hey guys, this has been on my mind for some time now and I figured that I will express it with you. Because there may be someone who is going through the same dillema. I just want to put it out there and say that in no way shape or form do I look down or discredit state education. I was fully state educated myself! I know that I am blessed to be in the position to even consider private education and I am thankful for this. Now with all that said and done, I…

The Winter Coat and Snakeskin | My Autumn essentials

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year. Autumn and Spring (Spring simply because it is my birthday month!). Autumn is a time where you start packing away those summer clothes. You know that summer dress that shows off every likkle piece of skin or that shirt that is so thin but gorgeous. You can only wear it when the weather is guaranteed to be over 30 degrees! Your skin is glowing or super oily, depending on your skin type! Vitamin D everywhere! Everything looks better when the sun is shining doesn’t it?…
