    Easy way to make your own face mask: Global Pandemic

    One month into South Africa’s lockdown. The lockdown was announced to be for 21 days and unfortunately, it was extended for two more weeks . Today is officially day 31/35 and I learned how to make my own reusable mask. My mom resorted to making cloth face masks after a visit to the local pharmacy which was our last hope to finding masks unfortunately, they were sold out and instead of doing the runaround local stores searching for masks, she resorted to making masks for the family.  What mama used: Cloth T-shirt Scissors  Needle Cotton thread  Paper to cut out the pattern  Using a cloth face covering when you’re around…

    The surprising way a millennial cut sugar from their diet

    2 years since I cut sugar from my diet. Honestly, it has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I obviously cut it out for health reasons because I have a bile problem. In the process, I found out that my acid (gastric acid) level was not making it any easier for me. Life changing. My lips would remain dry even after moisturizing them with a generous amount of lip balm. Having a huge appetite was not ideal as every two hours or so I’d fall hungry even after stuffing myself just a minute ago. My digestive system was a mess. I used to easily…

    Review: Sana Organics Products – Self-care Emporium

    My second favourite thing to do after writing my blog posts is to practice self-care. I’m a huge fan of trying new things to improve my skin, mental health and body. Self-care is of utmost importance as it serves as a form of healing for your body, mind and /or spirit. What better way to practice self-care then using raw organic products? I received products from a local brand @sanaorganicsonline on Instagram to review. They arrived at a perfect time. The festive season gets really crazy and the body ends up in lots of pain and bruises. I put the products to the test at the peak of the festive…

    With the global pandemic going on, South Africa announced a 21 day lock-down on Monday, 23rd March 2020 ,effective from Thursday midnight, 26th March 2020. COVID-19 is a real thing. I was very panicked by the announcement of the global pandemic. Some South African citizens who were based in China were quarantined at a local hotel around Polokwane, Limpopo, I live in Polokwane, you can understand my frustrations at the time. This was before it was announced that the people set to be quarantined tested negative for COVID-19. I remember I made a huge fuss about this, as this was too close to home. It gave me a lot of…

From working late nights trying to build the site, to days were I learnt how to code (YouTube), to the countless days I spent…

    Protective Styling For Your Natural Hair

    Protective styles for natural hair is very important, it is the one way to help retain length on our natural hair. A true protective hairstyle is at its base simply a style that protects the ends of your hair, helping to decrease tangling, shedding and breakage.

It is advisable to keep long term protective styles (braids, faux locs) for a period of a month or at least 6 weeks and short term protective styles (corn rows,…

    20/20 Vision

    Another year has passed by, 2019 was short of a roller coaster ride for me. I am just glad I made it through much stronger and wiser. 2020 is definitely the year for NEW everything, new energy, new job, new car, new home, new attitude, new peace, new dreams. [wpvideo HAE8wNyT ] I read somewhere on the internet that before we sit down and prepare our 2020 vision board we should write down a gratitude list for 2019. That way we get our energy right before making any more plans and/ or requests for the new year. Also, put to mind how the universe rewards the grateful. A grateful heart…
