As we wrap up the year, it’s only natural that we look back at what has been great and try to move on from the bad. Last year I wrote about recovering from a bad year after experiencing an unexpected loss. I am glad this year has been smooth sailing and God has blessed me with more amazing friends and kept my family well. The majority … Continue reading Just like that another year is gone. #2018was

Dang! its been a while, three months to be exact since I released a blog post. To be honest I simply realized that I can’t do it all right now. Call me whatever you want to call me but being a student, a wife, and a blogger is kinda a lot but kudos to those who manage to balance life so effortlessly, you’re the real mvp.
I decided that my brain needed to focus on academic life alone, i felt like writing was becoming a chore due to the fact that I had to do so much of it for uni. Lol i hope you can forgive my flaky behaviour, I can’t say it won’t happen again because it probably will but to get an update when i do post kindly subscribe to my mailing list.
Now that all is forgiven lets get into this weeks blog post.
I love fashion but I find it difficult to write about clothes, I am sometimes tempted to post my pictures and go. I follow some amazing fashion bloggers who give detailed descriptions of the ideas behind their outfits and I admire their ability to deeply describe something I see as quite simple. Unless I am styling someone else or styling for a photoshoot my shopping process is as … Continue reading Spring Fashion trends
I love all forms of genuine declarations of love and truth be told I love presents even more, but none of these things solely happens on valentines day so why all the fuss? Contrary to your presumption, this post is not to condemn the celebration of valentines but to shine a light on why it really isn’t a big deal, why you shouldn’t put pressure on your significant other to do it and why it’s ok to ignore it and spend the day like any other day.
If you have watched my video on the dos and don’t for valentine’s day, you would know that I’ve had my fair share of good and terrible valentines. I recently discovered that my opinion on valentine’s day generally fluctuates depending on one factor which is satisfaction.At this moment, I am satisfied with love, so much so that I can happily ignore the season of love without feeling left out. Truth be told I am not sure how I reached this state of mind but I can only attribute this feeling to being frequently shown love in multiple ways by my Husband. Well done babe you are doing an amazing job, anyway, moving on swiftly because I find talking about myself super awkward. If your partner expresses his/her love for you on a regular basis, is it really fair to demand that they take part in the valentines celebration if it is not something they believe in? If you have no doubts regarding their feelings for you, what does a few chocolate and flowers really do for you? Whilst these things are nice, is it worth having unnecessary arguments with your partner about. I employ you to think about the questions above and come to your own personal conclusions. Whilst I might not believe it’s a subject worth having an argument about, it is ok to think otherwise.
A quick update before we get into this blog. I am studying at the moment, so my life is pretty much about reading academic journals and attending lengthy lectures which can be very boring. I exaggerate, it’s not all bad and I am learning and gaining some useful skills (just in case, somehow one of my lecturers reads this). After a year out from education, … Continue reading “Marriage is a happy imprisonment” Discuss
It’s that time of the year again, when we all start doing a little bit of reflection, it’s a bit corny if you ask me. I say that but I’m probably going to do the exact same thing, hypocritical or what? Jokes aside, we live our lives without a care for a good 360 days and then BAM in the last weeks of the year … Continue reading How to recover from a “bad” year?
Ladies do we really need a new outfit this Christmas or is there something in our closet that will do? If you are anything like me, you look for excuses to buy something new…birthdays, dinners, work socials and even church. I gave myself the challenge to shop wisely this year and to only buy things that could be multi-purpose. This means I should be able … Continue reading Outfit and makeup ideas for Christmas
