• The Power Of Make-Up

    It wasn’t my day but damn, didn’t I look good. Or like an African aunty… Depending on how you look at it. Since the wedding, and my first full face makeover, last Sunday;  I’ve felt a bit strange about my face. Nothing serious, not like I can’t go out but suddenly I feel less fabulous.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of my new face but I had to admit that my skin was looking perfect. Every selfie I took had the  light gracing me perfectly and the comments I got about my beauty were though to make my head explode decadently.…

  • “I can’t breathe!”

    That’s what my mind was screaming continuously throughout the second, half hour class. When the burst of new energy that I’d arrived in the gym had faded. It had been a while. And though it was a respiratory fight, I made it to the end. The high I feel when I finish a workout and motivational kick start is one I wish I could bottle up and take sips of throughout the days. You get a sense of an achievement. The feeling that you can do anything! Accomplish your goals: eat healthier; get fit (or die trying). It’s that first…

  • Packing: part 1

    Some may say only the criticals are needed…this is up for debate. Packing, shopping and anything to do with clothes and living really, have slowly become the bane of my life. Why is it that I experience hot weather yearly; yet there is a distinct lack of appropriate, non-sweat producing clothing available in my wardrobe. Now, this year I actually have an excuse. Due to the recent purge of my wardrobe, in an effort to live a semi-minimalist lifestyle, I have successfully been living with 3 jeans and 5 tops (or so it feels). But how does one continue this lifestyle…

  • A Night Off

    @extrafabulouscomics A much needed evening at home, listening to music and chuckling at funny viral videos has taught me to appreciate this limited down time. With the ‘busyness’ of work, socialising with friends and family and other commitments, it’s sometimes hard to find time to relax. As much as I love to be with my loved ones, my battery fully recharges when I spend time with me myself and I. It gives me a chance to think and enjoy my hobbies. And most importantly; I get the opportunity to learn more about myself. I’d encourage you to do the same.…

  • The Almost Quarter-Life Crisis

    I’m 22 and I’m afraid I may be in the midst of a crisis. I’ve taken the first step now, please clap for me. It’s rough out here and it won’t take a google search for me to know that most of you my age are feeling the same. Today I was comforted by the words of James Corden when he said that none of us know what we are doing here as adults, this blew me away.  Even the successful don’t feel like they’ve got the hang of things,  this must mean I’m normal, and not the oddball my…
