Motivational: Random thoughts

Photo by Shifaaz shamoon on Unsplash Hello Everybody, I’m sitting confined to my coach because baby is being fussy and wants to sleep in my arms. So as per usual this brain of mine is racing, because so much is happening at the moment. So many challenges, mindset changes and new things I’m attempting. And as you know with all that comes FEAR!  Fear of failing, fear of the unknown. SELF-DOUBT! What if I’m not good enough? What will people say? What will they think of me? Starting out on this journey(not very…

Product review: Johnson’s Top-To-Toe Range

Hi Everyone! I recently received the Johnson’s Top-To-Toe Range from Beauty Bulletin and Johnson’s Baby SA to review. It being winter here in South Africa I was more than happy to put it to the test as it’s a Nourishing Skincare Routine. Before getting into the products that the range consists of, I would like to 1st highlight the key differences between our skin and babies’ skin. Baby skin loses moisture up 5 times faster than ours and has less natural moisture making it more prone to dryness. Their skin…

5 Tips for everyday make up

Hi everyone! May I just have a moment to have a quick rant about make up? I find in general make up is expensive, not easy to apply, it takes long(don’t you love the “no make-up make up” tutorials that takes 45 min and 150 brushes to apply no make-up?) and mine never comes out like the tutorial! LOL! Don’t get me wrong, I love applying make up. What I love more is for my make up to look natural and effortless, because I don’t want people running into the…

Dilemma! Small wedding…To have or not to have?

photo-nic.co.uk nic Hi everyone! I really want to keep this post short and sweet as the previous one was quite lengthy. So, I’ll dive right into it… As I’ve mentioned before, my fiancé and I will be tying the knot soon. When we decided to get married over a year ago we immediately set a date for this August and started visiting a few venues, drew up the guest list, got quotes for my dress, etc. We were of course very excited, but that excitement was quickly dampened when all…

My skincare routine

Hi everyone! I’ve shared this video on my Instagram account so some of you might have seen it. I just want to give a little background on some of the problems I encountered due to pregnancy. I unfortunately was not one of those lucky women who “glowed” while being pregnant. No, my skin was the opposite, DRY & FLAKY! In addition to that my skin suffered from chloasma, also called the mask of pregnancy. This happens when there is a rise in estrogen levels which stimulate excess melanin production. So…

My place in Social Media : Do I fit in or stand out?

Hi everyone, Welcome to my blog and Happy Freedom Day to my fellow South Africans! I had so much to say in this post and if I did it was gonna be a 100 page post! So, sadly I had to really cut out a lot. On that note, I’m definitely starting a vlog! Question is just when. Anyway! I’m off the point right now. Like I mentioned in my 1st post I started the blog for the main purpose of documenting some of the moments in my life, wether…

My 1st post!!

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog… Yesss! Eventually my 1st post. It’s always scary because you expect people to criticise what you’ve written, how you’ve written it, etc. but here we are… This will be a quick introductory post where I’ll share just a few things about myself and what you can expect to see on the blog. That way you can have a bit of an idea of who the person behind the keyboard is. Here goes! I’m just a regular ol’ gal ready to make some awesome…
