Speaking Things into Existence

“Speak what you seek until you see what you’ve said” I am so glad that I travelled a few weeks ago, because I honestly felt like I was losing it. Losing it to all the pressures that I feel in my daily life. Pressures of trying to make something of myself as woman with dreams, but also a woman who has a family who depended on her. Things were tough. In 2016, I made some progress in admitting that things were not all great. I saw a counsellor and finally spoke to someone objective about…

6 Tips for a happier and more successful 2017

Welcome to 2017! Happy new year everybody. You know at the end of every year, I look back and reflect on how the year has gone. I have realised that how you start the year can put you in a better position at the end of the year. What I mean is, if you start the new year with specific measurable achievable goals of things that you want to achieve, you are more likely to achieve it by the end of the year. Rather than the general trend of setting New Years resolutions which you…

10 Situations that Makeup Lovers will understand

1. When I see a sales consultant pull out foundation that is 10 shades too light for my face for my foundation trial. Do I look tanned to you?! L 2. When I look hella rough but someone says that I look good. Really?! 3. When I see someone carrying a Sephora bag on holiday. I must trace where that bag has come from! 4. When my face has been beat into perfection and my edges are laid for dinner and the night is rubbish. So I wasted all this makeup for nothing! Someone is going to get hurt! …

When #blackgirlmagic was not popular…

“I am dripping melanin and honey. I am black without apology”. *** As a woman of colour my beauty, my hair has always be undermined and seen as second best. My beauty was never enough. I should be lighter, with thinner lips and a straighter nose. I despised my features, growing up and always wanted to change it. Despised? Yes, I despised them. I would regularly go to bed at night crying to God, asking why couldn’t I be prettier? I would hear and see men go for lighter women and say to me as…

Creating and Seeing the Vision

The idea just kept  popping up in my head, no matter how many times I tried to ignore it. I believe it was God speaking to me, telling me to go ahead. One day, in the midst of my fear and confusion, I received the confirmation that I needed. I was talking to a group of girls and they said that they wished my platform existed. They were talking about my idea! After I went through a particularly challenging period in my life, I decided that it was now or never. I had some money…

Where Have I Been?

Hey guys! Long time no speak! I would love to say that I took some time off blogging to recharge my batteries, but that would be a lie! I just felt like crap to be honest! My hairdresser was on a two week vacation and my hair looked like I had placed a dead animal on my head! Don’t even get me started about the day when I noticed at work that my wig was the wrong way round! *sobs*. I’ve been comfort eating, grabbing anything containing sugar and carbs, so my skin was a mess.…

Friday’s Challenge – Do what you love

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you”. Maya Angelou *** We often set limits on ourselves consciously or unconsciously. The limits we set on ourselves are even more damaging than the limits that other people set on us. When you start to believe that you are not good enough, that you are not worthy enough to fulfil your dreams, there is no motivational speaker, no inspirational…
