• How to make your friends love you more

    This bank holiday weekend I had the privilege of hanging out with my best friends. I say a privilege because as we get older we all have more responsibilities, plans, work and sometimes are just too damn tired to physically spend time together. So meeting up for a whole day to hang out is rare. You’ve got to love Britain for giving us this day. The sun came out to play and after some poor planning on my part, Siobhan opened up her home for a little barbecue. We had burgers, chicken and corn ( you name it!)   We…

  • Money Makes The World Go Round

    Recently I’ve been having some difficulties in keeping up my writing. Finding the thought of the whole website thing overwhelming. I tend to do that. Get so overwhelmed with thinking about could go wrong and even what could be going right that I just space out. Avoid it all. In ways I must think it’s easier. But mentally it’s the worst decision. I feel like I’m giving up on my dream and without that I go back to being the failure with no direction or drive in my life. Ignoring everything else that may be going well. My family, my…

  • 6 Books by Black Authors to Read This Year

    Reading Americanah was a breath of fresh air for me. I hadn’t realised how much of a longing I had to read about people who are like to me. From little moments surrounding black hairstyles to talking about the prejudices we face. Black panther has sparked an interest in the production of more media featuring black narratives and though that was a movie, I want to share with you some stories in the form of my first love, books. Follow me into the minds of other great storytellers in these Books by Black Authors below:     Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi…

  • Is Social media taking over our lives? // Grown-ish S1E8

    Wow. I really watched this episode and then disappeared down a 2-hour blackhole of watching people on YouTube, Instagram and Whatsapp. I have learnt nothing. Like Big Sean said, I need to stick to the plan, stay focused. It’s crazy how much the internet can distract us. The tool used to bring the world together can often seem like it is making us lose ourselves in the process. Social Media was Zoey’s struggle in this week’s episode. Whilst acknowledging that social media was quickly taken over, she was struggling with her own addiction to oversharing and gaining followers and likes.…

    Does Bentonite Clay work for Natural Hair?

    Hey Guys, I wanted to try out Bentonite Clay again. When my hair was shorter I would use this every week to clarify my hair and it felt amazing! Recently my hair  has felt very dry and it seemed like no products were penetrating the hair shaft. I quickly ordered this product on Amazon and was excited to give it a try again after a year of not using it. To check out my results please watch the video below:

  • Unbreak my heart // Grown-ish S1E7

    I missed a few weeks but I’m back!   Grown-ish is once again hitting us with those life lessons.   Zoey is not taking this heartbreak well at all and has been going through the motions these last 3 weeks since Cash Mooney dumped her. Instead of her to be hitting the gym, she has just been going through packets of crisps and pizza, causing her to feel even more tired, grouchy and unready to face the reality of her breakup. I have been lucky enough not to have experienced real heartbreak but with the help of a few situationships and…

  • Grownish S1E4: Catch Up / Reflection

    Since I’m still watching Grown-ish I’ve decided to carry on these weekly updates of Zoey’s progress. Zoey is finally turning into me! An awkward youth! So let me live my American dream.

  • 6 Healthy Habits to Start in Your 20’S

    Bits of me are breaking every day. I need a remedy. Everything happened one after the other. I had the flu, a dysfunctional hip and the black bags under my eyes were spreading the truth that I had underslept for months now. To top it all off my tooth was hurting and the closest appointment was a week away. I couldn’t even complain too loudly because about half of these issues were my own doing. Too many late nights and sugary foods had taken me here and I needed to be the one to get me out. I’m getting old-er.…
