If you’re the latter, this post is for you. It’s likely that you set yourself some… Continue reading Showing Up for Self-Love
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen the highly anticipated “A Simple Favor” starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick. This is not a movie review though, I read the book and am currently obsessed with this poison dipped cupcake of a read. I read this book within 24 full hours because it… Continue reading |BOOK REVIEW|A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell
In late 2018, I switched off WhatsApp notifications on my phone. I wanted to start living less in my workaholic mode and more in the present. I’ve never been a fan of notifications, I don’t want my time dictated to me by a beep or a red icon on my cellphone. I don’t want to… Continue reading How switching off WhatsApp notifications changed my life.
When I made the decision to go vegan, I was imagining that bankruptcy was imminent because of how expensive the internet told me it would be.

After binging on Peaky Blinders for the first time, I went into 2019 with Thomas Shelby confidence in what my year will be. I am now modelling my life around what I now call Thomas Shelby energy.

I went into this year, hopeful and ready for change, I wanted to grow and I… Continue reading What 2018 taught me
Remember in the 2000's when everyone was reading The Secret? I feel like this is that book of 2018. I went into this book on a self-development high, having read and listened to high vibe, self-help everything for the better half of 2018. I was expecting this book to rock me like my first kiss… Continue reading | BOOK REVIEW | The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
I'm about to talk about my period and vaginas... You have been warned! Still here? Great! I decided to invest in a My Cup (or Moon Cup or Luna Cup) 3 cycles ago after painfully inserting the 1 millionth super tampon of my life. I was so over being dry down below thanks to whatever… Continue reading |MOON CUP REVIEW|Period game changer?
There is a lot of talk about how we should be practising self-care. Super curated Instagram posts that show idyllic relaxation and this nearly unattainable zen that most women envy. It's an unhealthy expectation that we place upon ourselves to emulate the lives of Instagram influencers, that the average Jane can't juggle between raising kids,… Continue reading Self-Care vs. Self-Care
I care so much about what you think. I just want your approval because I am a people pleaser of note. I live my life based on the opinions of other people. Does this sound like something you can relate to because it’s something I am very familiar with? I have lived so much of… Continue reading I just want you to like me…
