It’s so hard!!

I like to think of myself as a body positive advocate… Or at least I try to enjoy my body and love every inch of my being.

Another thing I do which isn’t quite related to that is… I edit my own content that I post here and up in Instagram (which you should follow by the way if you don’t already do.) Read More

Being best friends in a relationship

I experimented with an Instagram TV video this week and I must say that I am steel reeling in the awkwardness of actually being in front of the camera and listening to myself speak. Nonetheless, in line with my stronger side which is writing, here are some tips on how to go about introducing the idea of being your partners best friend into your relationship. Read More

I got engaged| life update

Hello loves and happy Friday… hope you are doing well… still getting into the consistency streak after my long hiatus that I hinted about in this post. So todays post took a lot of nerves to write, mainly because it treads on the fine line between I want to share with you my life and what is private. To say that I have been conflicted is an understatement, but here we are…

The greatest mistake I ever made

Hello loves and happy Friday

We have finally come to the end of the #soulfulmarchtheme on the blog. It’s been quite the month trying to really touch on most of the aspects of life in the most nutshell form. Hope you have enjoyed and learned a thing or two, no? In fact if you make it this far, please comment on your favorite articles that you have come across this past month. Thanks for engaging with me in my posts… and please keep being my company on the blog. (Lurkers I see you too) So to crown this theme up, today’s post is really about the greatest mistake that I have made in my life.

Bffing milestones… 10 pointers that worked

Happy Friday lovelies, it has been #soulfulmarch on the blog for the past almost month and I haven’t finished the list of things that I have had to say. As a content creator, there are days you get mind blocks and you can’t write. Sometimes you have nothing to write and other times you have too much to write that you don’t know where to begin. I fall under the latter category at least for the past month. The roller coaster that has been life and the multiple lessons that I have had to draw from life have left me with so much to say, I just need to figure out how to say it.

Of Silhouettes and selflove

I have a love hate relationship with the mirror. As a matter of fact, before my Natural Hair Journey, I never really used a mirror in my life. Mirrors to me were (kinda are) those annoying things that just had to remind you that you had a million and one spots on your face and would quickly reduce your self confidence level to -66%. So I generally avoided them. I never even looked at my reflection in the many glass-coated buildings in town, and whenever I did, the sight of my “fat” legs would quickly remind me why I never liked mirrors.

On self love

Hey beautiful people…

Happy end of the week. Hope you are holding up well. I am so so excited because September started quite well actually…last Sunday was the best friend’s birthday and we got down to some cooking which I shall share with you soon. Apart from that let us talk about self-love today. When someone says self-love it usually sounds like a bad excuse to indulge in vanity (or so I think in my head) but my mind has gotten round to wrapping itself around that concept.

Confidence…the struggle

Hey people

I have a confession to make. So if you have met me before, you probably know that I am one of the people who pretty much have their lives together. I have really supportive parents and a great best friend who couples up as bae (read as the “one”) and the best sisters you could ask for. Generally my squad is dope! And as you would expect my life is set.

End of illusion and now welcome to the real world. I know it sounds cliché but the truth is my life is quite the contrary, and no it’s not because of family or bae. I happen to be one of the most freak-out-iy (I proudly created this word and claim all rights to it) person ever! Yes, I worry a lot and are very quick to discredit myself.

 

You see when I say that I am not the most confident person lots of my friends and acquaintances will dispute that, I mean I’m all about asking questions and dishing opinions here and there. In fact I’m usually the class perfect back-up vote of thanks person. But for some reason I have bouts of low confidence moments that hit hard. And they hit more frequently than I like to admit.
