    Taking a break is necessary

    I swear I am writing this post for the second time. I think I have written a similar blog post before or maybe I had a dream writing it? You know that feeling where everything is just overwhelming and you don’t know what to do or even worse you don’t know what is going on? Yeah, that’s a sign that you need to take things easy, relax, take some time out. Sometimes taking a break is all we need to do in order for us to have a different perspective on our everyday life. Every time you feel like you are about to crash and burn is exactly when you…

    The importance of planning in our lives

    There is a popular saying that goes ”failing to plan is a plan to fail”. When you go about your everyday life with no plan of action you deviate from your life goals. The importance of planning cannot be overemphasized for an organization or even for an individual. From the start of a small business to managing a large business, from starting your own career to the last stages of your working life, planning will be the most important tool that you use in your life. Planning doesn’t have to be anything hectic. You can start off by writing down your yearly goals, break them down to your quarterly goals,…

    Mental Health Awareness Month

    The month of May is globally known as Mental Health Awareness Month. We had the pleasure of opening our platform to the beautiful ladies Atishca Makan and Laaiqka Sukaih who shared their mental health journey with us. The first post of the Mental Health Awareness Month Series I touched a bit on my life with depression. The ups the downs and everything in between. A few years back I was involved in a horrifying car accident where I lost my friends at the scene of the accident. I remember the first 3 years after the accident I would tell every second person I meet about the scene. That was the…

    Mental Health Awareness Month: Grief – A Necessary Discomfort

    Grief by Atishca Makan I took hold of moms shaky hand, and we walked into my dad’s room together. From the moment I laid eyes on him in his bed, I knew he was gone. I felt it. I wanted nothing more than to collapse and retreat into myself at that moment. But I couldn’t. My mom needed a pillar of strength more than ever. So, I went onto autopilot. I took care of some of the funeral arrangements, bank paperwork, and all the legalities. I threw myself into it so quickly that I didn’t allow myself time to process my emotions. That was how the first year without Dad…

    Mental Health Awareness Month: My Journey With Depression

    I know I am not the only one whose depression peaked at the beginning of the lockdown. I hardly slept the the first month of the outbreak of COVID-19 in South Africa . Why? I think I was panicked at the news of the global pandemic. You would turn on to the news channel and every headline was about coronavirus. Stressful. It is only right to talk about the panic the global pandemic has raised since it is Mental Health Month. 💚 Mental Health is a real thing unfortunately we take it lightly because we are not informed adequately about it. It influences how we think, feel, and act. It…

    Autumn/Winter outfits inspired by 2020 Pantone Winter colours

    I thought it would be really cool to create an Autumn /Winter 2020 style guide inspired by the Pantone colours of the season. This way we all know where to start when we go shop for our Autumn clothes. Disclaimer: This style guide was shot in the comfort of my home. (of course, it was). I’m learning how to take my own pictures using a Bluetooth tripod bought from AliExpress a while ago. Here’s a link on how to navigate your way through Aliexpress and a review of some products I bought: https://africansoulgoddess.co.za/blog/2019/02/02/aliexpress-haul/ A COUPON for an even better shopping experience on AliExpress: COUPON It’s funny how this idea came…
