A lack of motivation can happen to the best of us. There are some days that you would much rather stay in bed all day, eat and binge-watch the entire season 3 of Stranger Things. That was me this past Saturday. My to-do list was as long as can be but the motivation was lacking.  Bruno Mars’ song, The Lazy Song came to mind and I did just that, NOTHING. We often feel lacking in motivation as a result of several factors; it may be due to burnout, procrastination, laziness,

I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year already, can you? Time really does fly. Did you start this year thinking it’ll be the best year yet? How is it going so far? As for me, it’s been a year of rediscovery and learning.  It definitely has not gone exactly according to plan but I’m not complaining. But before I get all deep and philosophical, let’s move on to a lighter topic, shall we? S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G, yay! I’m an online shopping kind of girl. Why? Because it is easy and convenient. 

  Where does self-love and body acceptance fit in with society’s beauty deals? Contrary to what some believe, self-love is not about “treat yoself”. It has nothing to do with acquiring material things either or even the monthly or biweekly wellness spa dates. Self-love is about truly knowing yourself and being at peace with who you are. Unfortunately, very few understand this concept. Instead, we live in a society so far removed from self-love that we are quite frankly sad and unhappy people. We, as millennials are so obsessed with

And we’re back to regular schedule!  (Blog post every Wednesday and Friday) First off, I feel like I owe you, my loyal readers, an apology for the silence. You don’t deserve it and I’ll do better. It is currently 2:15 am and for the past three to four days, I have been working non-stop on an assignment so much so that I’ve had very little time for anything else, not even to eat. I recently went back to study and the schedule with everything else I have going on is

Dove is a personal care brand owned by Unilever and has been around for over 6 decades. I grew up with my mum using Dove. It’s a classic. Dove has had its fair share of controversy, as a matter of fact, I stopped using Dove products a few years ago, 2017 because of its racially insensitive ads.  But, as a believer in second chances, I have decided to give the brand another chance, let love in, I mean, Dove. Let Dove in. Dove’s recent campaign on #RealBeauty was intended to break

Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask  Ever heard of a self-heating mask? A mask that purifies your pores in just 1 minute? The Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask is said to do just that and more. I put this claim to the test, keep on reading for my honest review. But first… Skincare Maintaining a great skincare routine has become an obsession of mine. To be perfectly frank, I don’t have the time nor the budget to frequent the spa as I once used to and so I make

Winter is coming… Is your wardrobe winter-ready yet? If not, you are not alone. There are only a few items that you need to have in your wardrobe to be winter-ready and they are: Coat Boots Scarf Sweater If you have these then you don’t need to buy anything else. Ha! If only I believed my own lies. As many clothes as I have, I find that the desire to buy more and add to my already full wardrobe never ceases. I’m always on the lookout for something new to

Are Cosmetic Enhancements the New Normal? More than a decade ago, when I was a teenager, cosmetic enhancements were not as common as it is now. Botox, breast augmentation, butt implants, fillers and liposuction seem to be becoming the new beauty norm. Image source When did things change? I read an article in Allure magazine which according to the American Society for Dermatologica Surgery, 70%  of American consumers in 2016, were considering undergoing non-invasive cosmetic enhancements. You can imagine that the number has risen now. According to a 2018 article

When it comes to style, I love the idea of being able to style an item of clothing in several different ways. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside the box and coming up with more than one way of wearing a piece of clothing. Everyone wants to look “brand new”, unfortunately, not everyone has the budget to do so.  But when you invest in quality, versatile pieces, there is no reason you can’t wear it again and again and look different each time you do. It’s a lazy and

Happy 2019, loves! May this year see the fulfilment of your heart’s desires. Today’s post is all about feminine hygiene, a topic we don’t talk about as often as we should. When it comes to feminine hygiene, many of us are uncertain about a number of things: How do I wash my vagina? Should I be using feminine washes? Is it normal for my vagina to have an odour? Does the white discharge on my underwear mean I have an infection? Is it okay to douche? These and more are some
