    Healing journey: Forgiving yourself and where to begin?

    I can’t be the only one who has done/ still is busy with some inner work. Holding myself accountable, setting boundaries and keeping a healthy distance from drama, situations and people that are not healthy for me. This healing journey is quite dreadful and secluded. Healing takes up so much of your energy. The journey of healing demands patience and practice coupled with endurance to face a few (maybe more) difficult moments that will leave you weak and wanting to quit.While dealing with our struggles, we often distract ourselves by being sympathetic and helpful to others. But it’s always a good idea to emphasise with yourself and heal yourself. So…

    How journaling has helped with my Manifestation journey

    I can’t imagine my life without writing down my thoughts and ideas. How else was I going to keep track of my goals? I don’t think there is a far better alternative to journaling. It sets the bar for me. Journaling has helped me fight so many battles, both internal and external. It has helped me to put my thoughts into words and most importantly to take accountability for my actions. It has created a haven for me, my thoughts, prayers, achievements and goals. Furthermore, it’s all written there. The pen is the tongue of the mind. Now how about I share with you a little secret, I use my…

    Naturally Africa Product Review -All You Need to Know

    This review is long overdue. Naturally Africa is the first natural hair brand to ever send me a PR package. I was excited when they first emailed me asking about my hair concerns and which of their products I’d love to try. I received the products in November 2020 so believe me, I’ve been using the products thoroughly and I’ll tell you everything you need to know about the products they sent me. I received the detangling spray, a cleansing conditioner and a leave-in conditioner in my PR package. Naturally Africa is a cruelty-free brand with vegan-friendly formulations and does not contain petrochemicals, parabens, sulfates and phthalates. I’m hear for…

    You are the salt of the earth, you are the light of the World

    I have chosen this verse as the theme for the year 2021, as a reminder that no matter what you are phased with, you must always bear in mind that you are making a difference, you matter and most importantly you are worthy. Lamentations 3:22- 23 ”You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. ”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a…

    25 Self-affirmations : for my 25th Birthday

    The past year has been a roller coaster ride. Filled with a lot of highs and a lot of lows. The past 6 months were the most triggering and hardest months. I lost count of how many times I broke down. I’ve never cried so much in my life like in the past 6 months. The smallest things would trigger me. I don’t know how to explain it, but to me that is growth, I’m one person who used to bottle things up and be consumed by anger, but now? I easily express myself, I allow myself to go through the emotions and I let it all out! Self affirmations…

    The importance of detangling your 4c natural hair

    Detangling is a delicate step in your wash day routine. You can’t fully say you are complete with your wash day without detangling your hair. I know it’s a process – time-consuming and exhausting to say the least. The whole arm stretch is tiring.  Detangling helps to remove tangles and shed hairs that can cause matting, knots, and ultimately, breakage. Detangling an also help with washing the hair, styling the hair, and distributing products throughout the hair. Many naturals have hair growth goals but are struggling with retaining length. Learning to properly detangle natural hair will ensure that you are not just breaking it off. It will also help with…

    Hair Mayonnaise by Africa’s BEST : Product Review

    When I first bought the product two of my friends recommended it. One because it makes your hair super soft, two because it helps with breakage. Hair mayonnaise is a protein treatment.  I have been using this product for the past 6 months and it is honestly amazing on my hair. It leaves my hair soft, well moisturized and it has helped with my hair breakage. Instead of long strands falling off my hair every two minutes I touch my hair, now only small pieces of hair fall off once in a while.  Normally I apply it after conditioning my hair on wash day for about 10 minutes. I wear a plastic…

    Sorbet Bare-Faced Foundation: Review

    This is my second foundation review. I have been experimenting with makeup for the past two years where I fully invested in makeup basics. I can proudly say I know how to beat my face for the gods.  I bought the Sorbet Bare-Faced foundation last year around September /October. Clicks had a beauty sale on almost all brands. I was in search of a new foundation and I opted for this one – the price influenced my purchase. It was sold for R130 (usually retails for 260). The Sorbet section at the local Clicks near my house was fairly new and I would always try out some products every time…
